    Small town newspaper article hits the nail on the head

    A gentleman named Ken Huber, from a small town in Michigan called Tawas City (pop. 2000), sent an editorial in to his local newspaper and it was published. Mr. Huber's opinion reflects my own.

    Hard to read for these old eyes, so: What has America become?

    Editor,

    Has America become the land of special interest and home of the double standard?

    Lets see: if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics; if we dislike a black person, we're racist and if a black person dislikes whites, its their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don't burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama's policies you're a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

    You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.

    We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don't want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of hand outs; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.

    And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who's at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

    What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave?

    I agree with much of what he said, not all of it.

    It sounds like he takes the very position that he's railing on about. Look closely.

    Everyone must sound like a RWNJ crank to a LWNJ crank.

    Is yearning for what America used to be RWNJism? Compared to a LWNJ desire for some new topsyturvy America, I suppose so.

    What makes him a Right Wing Nut Job @Ravi? Let's dig in cuz you use the term so much. Of the things he said, what don't you agree with and what makes them nutty?

    I agreed with 70-80% of it.

    Are you kidding?

    You should be able to spot RWNJ crank from the space shuttle. He basically goes through the RWNJ rhetorical handbook checklist on this one. Well within the bell curve.

    I'm sure there were Cave-Men who wished things would never change ... didn't work.
