Letters to the Editor

By Robert Warren East Carbon

What has happened?


FDR began planting the seeds of 'The New Deal' in 1932 and Obama is now planting the final crop. America has become the land of special interest and the double standard.

The President has convinced Congress and 'We the People' that lies are just politics.

If we dislike a black person, we're a racist and if a black person dislikes whites it's their 1st Amendment right.

The government spends millions of dollars to rehabilitate criminals and they do nothing for the victims.

In public schools, you can teach that homosexuality is okay, but you better not use the word God in the process.

You can kill an unborn child, but its wrong to execute a mass murderer.

We don't burn books in America, we just rewrite them.

We got rid of the communist and socialist threat by renaming them progressives.

We are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea.

If you protest against 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 show pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put up 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 human fetus for medical research, but its wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard to earn 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 politically correct.

Parenting has been replaced with Ritalin-Prozac and violent video games.

The land of opportunity is now the land of supposed handouts.

The similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the Golf oil spill that neither Bush or Obama 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 threaten them. They then pass a law, raise taxes and tell us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign to ban the bible and swear the office of president on the concealed Koran.

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