Kinda, sorta… Author unknown on this one, but pretty much how I feel anymore…

I grew up and spent most of my life basing my interactions with people on their character, NOT their color or beliefs. In the military all we cared about was that the other people did their jobs so we could do ours and make it home to fly again the next day. I’ve spent considerable time outside the USA, including in 3rd world countries and seen man’s inhumanity to man. In business, it was about professionalism, honesty, and integrity. Now???

I never cared about your political affiliation, until you started to condemn me for mine.

I never cared where you were from in this great Republic, until you began condemning people based on where they were born and the history that makes them who they are.

I have never cared if you were well off or poor, because I’ve been both, until you started calling me names for working hard and bettering myself.

I’ve never cared if your beliefs are different than mine – until you said my beliefs are wrong.

I’ve never cared if you don’t like guns, until you tried to take my guns away.

I’ve never cared about race matters, until you called be a racist for being white.

But, now I care.  

I’ve given all the tolerance I have to give. This is no longer my problem. It’s your problem. You can still fix it.  It’s not too late.  But it will be. Soon.

I’m a very patient person at times. But I’m out of patience. There are literally Tens of Millions of people just like me that are sick of all your Anti-American crap!

I’ve always cared about life, and all lives, but now you try to force the notion on me and my other fellow citizens and patriots that certain lives matter more than others. You protest, riot, attack, burn and loot. Your so-called “movement” has become a radical out-of-control bunch of thugs, criminals and anarchists who are doing harm to our Country.

We have had enough! America is the greatest country on Earth, and if you don’t like America, then you can LEAVE. We are done caring about your misguided “feelings”.

You don’t have the right to enjoy American freedoms if you are trying to take that right away from other Americans.

  1. It reminds me of comments I’ve made.

    Don’t ask me to care. You don’t WANT me to care. If I get interested you may not like the outcome. I may suggest that the best course of action is to bring the hammer down.

    Sleeping dragons are best left alone.

  2. Hey Old NFO;

    Yeah pretty much, they don’t want us to “get involved”, once we start, it won’t be over until it is over and it will make bosnia look like romper room. We just want to be left alone, but a part of me would rather me deal with it than my kid if you know what I mean…

  3. Ian- On the money, thanks!

    Toast- But will they? I don’t think so.

    Bob- Point!

    OG- Thanks!

    RHT- That too!

    MC- Not my words, but damn sure how I feel.

  4. >You can still fix it.

    No, they can’t. It’s not that it isn’t possible to step back from the precipice, it’s that their psychology won’t let them do it. When your entire character is based on psychopathy, narcissism, resentment, and lust for power, you can’t stop pushing, tormenting, slandering, and libeling your victims. The people who run things don’t think like you (or I) do.

    The horrible things they accuse *us* of are exactly the things they are doing. “Confession through projection.” At some level they genuinely believe they are The Real Victims, and anything they do is therefore not only justified but just. It’s complicated because there is definitely a deliberate cynical and manipulative component of “reverse victim and offender” but their cultural (and religious) programing also bakes in sincere belief that they are the eternal powerless and utterly innocent victims. Despite their narcissistic self-absorption, they are incapable of introspection.

  5. I have too often heard progressivism being defined as always fighting for *something.* They will never be content, therefore they will never let *you* be content either.
    They could never conceive of fiddling with the knobs of a system for the purpose of arriving at an equilibrium state where everything runs just fine without further twiddling.

    • To me, the word “Progressive”, always makes me think of “Cancer”. It’s progressive, and a killer. It killed my wife.

  6. Good words, and true. I may have been discharged from active duty, but never from America. What I was willing to do then, I’m willing to do now. They have sown the wind, and won’t like what happens next.

  7. Well said and true.
    My frustration is with people my age who are willing to go along to get along. They seem to think that they have done their part and since time is short they are not willing to push back against those that would defile our country and the constitution.

  8. All- Thanks for the comments! Appreciate the views and reminders of other things like Heemeyer.

  9. People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. I haven’t been asked to do one pullup, setup or squat jump since I left the Corps, but I can still but a round in the 10 ring at 500 yards if need be.

  10. All- Thanks for the comments. Grady, I wasn’t Corps, but I can still do the same 😉
