Measured Against Reality

Beautiful, sad, disturbing, and disgusting.

This made my heart hurt a little.

    It's about time you guys remember what made you what you once were.

  • Robert, there are many such people left, and I count myself as one of them. I fear we are currently a minority, but am hopeful that enough people will realize how far America has drifted that things will start to change.

    I'm young enough to hope, old enough to know it won't happen.

  • "I'm young enough to hope, old enough to know it won't happen."

    Actually I'm just plain old, but I have lived through some interesting political upheavals.

    The Provence of Quebec, Canada was in my youth little more than a theocracy, ruled by the Catholic Church. So total was its influence on everyday life that it was not uncommon to have a man's paycheck delivered to the parish priest first. This was only one of the abuses that were in common practice here fifty years ago.

    This influence was broken during the so called 'Quiet Revolution' when a group of committed people decided to knock down this rotten edifice that from the outside looked impregnable if only from inertia.

    They succeeded. Now Quebec has one of the most lively secular culture's in North America.

    The United States has not traveled so far down this road that there is not a majority of you that remember what you were, what you once believed, that a fire cannot be lit that will burn away this tissue of lies that cover you.

    It's perhaps not my place to lecture you on how you should run your nation; however in OUR dark time it was the light that was shining from the South that gave us hope and showed us what was possible.

    Don't let it go out.

  • Very well said, would you mind if I made it into its own post?

  • Please be my guest. However you will want to edit it as my English is not that good as it is not my first language.

  • Robert, your English is better than many native speakers I know, and you speak it with an eloquence few can match. You need not worry about that.

  • Also, do you have a blog you'd like me to link to? I'd like to read it and give you credit for it (and the meager traffic my blog gets), but the link on your name went nowhere.

  • Thank you, but no, I do not blog. I maintain an account only to comment.

  • Sometimes I wonder just what it would take to make people wake up. How much more do they need? Pictures of Bush playing golf with Satan?

  • Thanks a lot for sharing. You have done a brilliant job. Your article is truly relevant to my study at this moment, and I am really happy I discovered your website. However, I would like to see more details about this topic. I'm going to keep coming back here.
