I don’t know what makes me angrier, the story itself or the fact that out of over 200,000 hits on Google for this story; there wasn’t one major newspaper or television news network that ran this story.
That is the saddest comment on American Journalism that I can think of. I, one lone man can find 240,000 + hits on a story in less than 40 seconds and Reuters, API, Fox news (typically conservative), CBS, ABC, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN… nobody reported on this? Seriously? Nobody gives a darn about old people? Our country has stooped this low.
I remember when I was growing up in the 1960’s in Oakland, California. We had a wonderful sweet sister that went to our church. She and her husband had been going there for over 40 years. My, how I miss that dear sweet Sister Bea.
She was an older African American woman (she would laugh at that now and say honey, call me colored or black, it’s ok it’s the color God himself made me, and then pat me on the head and smile her sweet smile). I can just imagine how she would react to the following news.
LORD HA’ MERCY CHIL’… LOOOOOOORD HA’ MERCY, THERE’S A NEW BULLY, A NEWWWWWW TERRORIST IN TOWN! MMnn MMnn Hmmmmmm
Despite the anger brewing inside me over this insidious twist of the 1st and 4th amendment to our beloved Constitution of the United States of America, I can’t help but laugh at the thought of Sister Bee gettin up in Heaven, and shakin her white hankey and say go on now Bradley you speak it boy.
Here is a snippet of a Google search that I did not more than 2 minutes ago. Of import is the search field and what I asked for and the amount of returns on that subject and how quickly it came back. That means there are a lot of people buzzing about this. And it’s very current news.
Yes as you have no doubt deduced by now there is something wicked in river city, something stinks in Denmark and the World is going to… well you get the point.
There are Senior Citizens all over the state of Georgia, long a part of the proud heritage of our Christian ancestry that have been told, they can no longer pray for meals in their nursing home dining rooms. Some have said well it should be done in private. Apparently they have been monitoring the residents closing their eyes in the dining room and punishing them for praying. Since when did it become anti American to bow your head and pray in silence?
This is a spit in the face of these senior citizens (many of whom no doubt shaped the nation we know and love today, (no doubt many of them armed in battles during WW II or Korea), and a spit in the face of the founding fathers of our nation, and what’s worse, a spit in the face of the one this nation was originally founded for, God himself.
How dare you Georgia? You last bastion of the Bible belt under the Mighty Magnolia tree. Your Magnolia blossoms are rotten and your people are weary.
Have these people who decided to enforce this law, or the court which later approved it, ever read the Constitution of the United States of America or the Declaration of Independence?
I know, sadly 23% of people polled recently could not tell the pollsters what the three branches of our government were. (For those of you in that poll that might be reading here, it is 1. The Executive (hint: The President) 2. The Legislature (hint: Senate and House of Representatives) 3. The Judicial system (the people in black that sit way up high in a courtroom that you have probably visited once or twice)
You know what the main difference is between the current day progressives who have taken over the Democrat party and the Republican Party? The difference is I’m glad a black man finally made it into the office of the President of the best darn country in the world. But I would not cross a 2 inch street to shake that man’s hand. Why? Not because he’s an African American! I grew up around thousands of African Americans. It is because he is trying to change the fabric of our once great land. He is trying to hire a judge who has never tried a case in court, and who flagrantly violated a long standing Federal law, when she refused to allow the ROTC to come onto the campus of Harvard. The Court told her there’s no reason under the Federal law that they can’t come onto your campus. What did she do? She said I’m not going to let them on campus in direct violation of Federal Law and a US judge. This is the woman that Obama wants to put into the Supreme Court for the next 20-30 years. Also because he bowed his knee to a foreign Muslim dignitary (Which no other leader of the free world has ever done) and because before a Muslim audience he stated “America is not a Christian Nation, we offer diversity”. There is about 290 years of history that would prove you wrong Mr. President! (Before and after the Declaration of Independence where the writers talked about a corrupt and tyrannical king and how a people in order to form a more perfect union….sound familiar?) If you haven’t ever read it before folks, it will bring a tear to your eye for it rings freedom to everyone who understands it. And by the way Mr. President, stop calling our Nation a Democracy! Through 260 years of blood, sweat, and tears… We are a Constitutional Republic and proud of it.
But you know what? Because he is the President of this great and once holy nation, if I were able to throw myself in front of a bullet going his way aimed by some psycho lunatic nut job that no God fearing Christian would ever agree with, I would sacrifice my life or limb to save him. I would do everything in my power to protect him. Why you ask… But that is the answer to the above question. MY momma didn’t raise no fool!
Simply because he is the President of the Nation I love.
No doubt, as I lay there on the ground bleeding or dazed, looking up at him saying glad I could be of assistance Mr. President, He would probably push me and his secret service agents off, get up and brush himself off, and walk away, without looking back once, (after all he ignored the voices of millions of Americans over the health care bill, why would my voice be any different), but I would do it any day of the week. God bless the office of President, God bless Americans, and God bless the United States of America!
