Recently I have been diagnosed with anxiety. Is it any wonder?
I recently read a small article in the briefs section of The Sun News that said 858 immigrants from countries of concern have mistakenly been granted citizenship by the federal government. Really?
How can anyone who loves America and feels blessed and lucky to live in such a wonderful country not have anxiety?
Is there anyone in Washington who actually cares about what is happening to this country? I think there isn’t. The FBI dropped the ball so many times where they no longer have people on the watch list. I say once you are on that list, you should never come off.
Never miss a local story.
Am I the only one who realizes that's what terrorists are hoping for? Just behave and stay back for a short time and the U.S. will drop them and then they harm as many of us they can reach!
Yes, we have always been a country that welcomed immigrants. However, immigrants wanted to come here for the freedom, for the chance of having a wonderful life, working for the chance to be part of the country, work for the opportunities that were not given to them in their country. (The key word is work.) They came here because they loved the U.S.A. - not to kill as many of us that they could.
We need to go back to being the country we once were. We need to once again charge people with treason. We don't to do that anymore. If you don't like it here, leave!
If you are upset about something, voice it respectfully. This garbage of having sports players not having respect for our national anthem goes much farther than disrespect. There is no other country in this world where they would receive the salaries they do here. We have become such a Greedy-Me Me Me World that there is no respect.
Yes, our forefathers were horrible to slaves, but they are no longer here and none of us have treated you as they did. I have never disrespected any person of another color, as our ancestors did.
It all starts at home. What we are taught is what we are. I have said before that Martin Luther King Jr. did not want us to be at odds. Our soldiers have fought and died for the freedoms we have, for that beautiful silk flag that we proudly fly in front of our businesses and homes.
My son said that no matter where he is, when they sing the national anthem, he stands still and gets goose-bumps. We need to join hands and make a human wall of love to keep out the bad guys that want to kill all Americans. And you can bet the farm that they don't care what color you are. If you are an American, they want you dead.
We need to allow the grace of God back into this wonderful country. With him watching our back and standing together against our foreign enemies, we may have success in making the U.S.A. the great country we used to be.
May God bless the U.S.A. and all of us who love this country and what it used to stand for.
