America is in grave trouble

    It goes without saying that our country is in grave trouble and it is getting worse every day. People are dying by the dozen by violent means

Violent protests are at an all-time high. Violent crimes of all kinds are going up every day; while all this is going on all our “leaders” can do is argue about a male member of the opposing party the audacity to wear white socks with a brown suit or worse yet they wore underwear that they had bought at Walmart instead of wearing a designer brand.
    They will also make a big issue out of the fact that a female member of the opposing party wore the gaudiest piece of jewelry that you have ever seen or that one of them returned from lunch and she had a piece of spinach stuck in her teeth. They don’t have time to worry about the mundane fact that America, the greatest country the world has ever known, is going to hell in a hand basket.
    If World War II was to be fought today, we would lose big time because we don’t have what it takes to fight the fight like we had then. Just look at how berserk some people became when they were asked to wear a mask because of the COVID and our “leaders” are more interested in getting reelected than they are in working together for the good of our country.
    Right now the most ridiculous thing I am hearing is “Defund the Police.” Where would we be without the police? Sure we have “bad apples” in law enforcement but let’s not “throw the baby out with the bath water.” Let’s get rid of the “bad apples,” give the rest of them the proper training and the tools needed to do their job. The ordinary person has no idea what the stress level is for these people. They are expected to make split-second decisions on things that took our courts and legislature years to make decisions on and they are expected to make the right decision. There is an old adage that says, “When you are up to your butt in alligators it is hard to remember that your primary objective was to drain the swamp!”
    Recently I had an awesome experience. I had a dream where I was able to see 50 years into the future and I had a vision of Donald and Ivana Trump setting in rocking chairs on the front porch on their retirement home and their conversation went something like this:
    Ivana: “I miss being in the spotlight and all of the glitz and glamour of the White House.”
    Donald: “You just wait until the latest recount of the election is finished. The results will show that I won.”
    Ivana: But honey you have had 49 recounts already and you have lost all of them.”
    Donald: But this time will be different because our two adopted sons, Jason and Josh, are doing all the counting and they have assured me that I will win and Rudy has rock-solid proof that aliens from outer space were allowed to vote in the last election as long as they voted Democrat.”
    I still say, American the greatest country the world has ever known and say without any qualms that we should kneel for the cross and stand for the Flag!
