What has America become?

The following is a transcript of a letter to the editor that first appeared on June 9, 2010, in the Iosco County News Herald. It is attributed to someone by the name of Ken Huber from Tawas City, Michigan. I feel that is equally relevant today.

Has America become the land of special interest and home of the double standard?
Lets see: if we lie to the Congress, it’s a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics; if we dislike a black person, we’re racist and if a black person dislikes whites, its their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don’t burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of communist and socialist threats by renaming them progressive; we are unable to close our border with Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against President Obama’s policies you’re a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it was your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it is wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don’t want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of hand outs; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who’s at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their reelection campaign.

What has happened to the land of the free and home of the brave?

America... Not So Beautiful Anymore

This is pretty strong… you may not want to read it if you are not…

A Letter to Coca Cola from Barbara Gilbert RN

I watched some of the commercials that were played during the Super Bowl.

I always enjoy the ones from Anheuser Busch. They showed the “Welcome
Home” celebration in Winter Park , Florida , for returning soldiers. And
who doesn't love those Clydesdale? I didn’t like the one from Coca Cola.
All those young women singing “America The Beautiful” dressed in ethnic
garb and singing in a foreign language really pissed me off. Americans sing
in English to honor America ; not Farsi or Urdu.

I left a comment for Coke on YouTube under the video of that commercial.
I got a reply from them today, which you can read below, and then you can
read my answer to them. Maybe this time they’ll understand.

I received this from Coke:
Thank you for your email and your loyalty to Coca-Cola over the years, .
We greatly value your business and appreciate hearing from you.
“It’s Beautiful” was created to celebrate Coke moments among all
Americans who together enjoy ice cold, refreshing Coke. For centuries
America has opened its arms to people of many countries who have helped to build this great nation. “It’s Beautiful” provides a snapshot of the real lives of Americans representing diverse ethnicities, religions, races and families, all found in the United States . All those featured in the ad are Americans and “America The Beautiful” was sung by bilingual American young women.

We believe “It’s Beautiful” is a great example of the magic that makes
our country so special, and a powerful message that spreads optimism,
promotes inclusion and celebrates humanity – values that are core to

My Reply:
Where do you live, Timothy? Since you’re with Coca Cola, it is likely
Buckhead or one of Atlanta ’s other exclusive, executive, country club
neighborhoods. I lived in one for over two decades, in Hudson , Ohio ... I know what they’re like. My youngest son lives in one near Atlanta , as he
is a successful broker with E-Trade, in Alpharetta. Those neighborhoods are not what most of this country is like, however. Maybe you haven’t traveled much, or lived in many different states as I have.

America ’s not so beautiful anymore, and it is full of immigrants that have
no intention of assimilating into our society or becoming truly American.
They brought their own culture, keep their own culture, and never learn
anything about ours, except to use it to their advantage. They don’t even
like Americans. They make no effort to learn our language. Ever been to
Detroit ? I’ll bet you never tried to enter the closed Muslim festival that
takes place near Ann Arbor, you’d probably be assaulted before you
got a block away. We Americans are not so proud of that kind of behavior,
and they aren’t there to celebrate being American.

How about Collinsville , Ohio ? That’s a part of Cleveland , and the
Collinsville police once yelled at me to “get the hell out of this black
neighborhood, lady, or we will be calling the meat wagon!” because I had gotten lost there. Police there were barricaded behind locked doors. You could not see a police officer, in the lobby of the station you are required
to pick up a phone to talk to one. A white woman in that black
neighborhood was in great danger, they explained. The slums of
Cleveland, Detroit, Los Angeles, and especially Chicago, or any other major city are littered with filth and disease and the hatred of blacks toward whites. It’s the same in the L.A. barrio, my friend, and they aren’t singing Kumbaya, either. A recent mayor of L. A. declared he intended to take California back as Mexican territory. Do you consider that a Kumbaya moment? An “America The Beautiful” kind of moment? They call themselves “Reconquista”, and they are there to do just that. They murder and steal from Americans who live near the Mexican border in Arizona while our government says Arizonans can’t protect themselves from the marauders. Is the America where you find massive amounts of illegal drugs and thick lines of cocaine on glass -top coffee tables to be considered beautiful?
That’s what illegal aliens brought to our once beautiful America . Is that
meth lab in the house down the street beautiful? Is the heroin epidemic
now seizing the weak in America your idea of “America , The Beautiful”?
Singing it to us in foreign languages is repugnant to us, and it makes us
resentful. Being sung by a young woman who is forced, by her family, to wear the clothing demanded by the oppression of her religion is also repulsive.

Do you have children? Are they allowed to wear a symbol of our country on
their clothing? America’s schools don’t allow American flags anywhere
anymore. Where are your children going to learn of a “beautiful” America?

It won’t be at their school. They are being taught how wonderful Islam
is. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo, when their brother may be shot at by an
Afghan terrorist or an alien illegally crossing our border to bring harm
to our country in the form of theft, drugs, prostitution, or terrorism.
Watch the news; you’ll see how often there’s a squabble over such things,
and how angry it is making real Americans. You know, those folks that say
the Pledge of Allegiance and mean it. Probably like your mom and dad. Those that came here to flee oppression and build an America that they were also willing to die to defend. Not the ones who want to “fundamentally change America ”.

How about Watts, or South Central Los Angeles? Boston, or New York ,
or Patterson, New Jersey? Do you ever have a desire to participate in or
watch the Boston marathon again? You think the Tsarnaov brothers are a
part of beautiful America?

Beautiful? No, it isn't. Not anymore. Huge numbers of Muslims that threaten  the white residents of Wylie , Texas.  Moving into the new neighborhood holding closed  secret meetings in the park, intimidating white children,  and frightening the elderly, doesn't make this a beautiful America. 
Illegal people from all over the world enter America through wide open
borders and  suffer no consequences.  Lovely people like MS 13 and other
gangs, and terrorists from the Middle East, Mexican, Central and South 
Americans serve as donkeys, as beasts of burden, bringing thousands of tons of illegal drugs into America , and you want to celebrate their  heritage?  Why? 

 And you want me to celebrate their heritage with you?  Have you all lost
 your collective minds?
 At  least ten thousand people were brought into the New York City area as 
 prostitutes to serve the football fans that came to see the Super  Bowl. 
 Many of them were children.  The FBI has been busy rounding them up. Some are only 13 years old.  Is that your America , of which you sing in a foreign voice?  Human trafficking in this country is rampant; do you suppose the kid was given an ice-cold Coke to enjoy after  some sweaty, grunting Denver or Seattle fan finished his sex act with  her?  I hope it makes you shudder and puke. 

Those kids were mostly brought into our country from a foreign land.  Is that what you want them to know of America, and sing it in their
 language?  What about the adult women who were victimized in that group of ten thousand?   Know this - they do not come willingly.  They do not perform those acts willingly.  And they sure as hell don’t do it to  be in the land of Coca Cola ...   They hate us because we allow it  to happen.  I hate to tell you what they would do to you with a Coke bottle, and that I know of
 because I am an R. N. who witnessed such things  in an emergency room.

 That’s not “ America, The Beautiful”.
 Well, Timothy, change for the better under liberals is just not going to
 happen.  The backlash I’m giving you is only a polite synopsis of the
 feelings  millions of us have about those immigrants who speak different
 languages and  come from cultures that we do not
 embrace.  We do not want our children or  grandchildren exposed to them or their culture except from afar. We do not want our grandchildren celebrating Cinco de Mayo and being told that  they cannot display the American flag on their own home or a T-shirt.  

 It makes us angry!  Where we once practiced tolerance and helped those 
 who wish to assimilate, we now shun and cower in fright, or watch violent 
 clashes between cultures on the nightly news.  We arm ourselves against
 the invasion. 
  If  Coca Cola is going to be politically correct and sing Kumbaya while
 hoping that we who are outside that closed executive neighborhood of yours enjoy a  cold refreshing Coke and smile at your distinctly anti-American silly song,  you’re badly mistaken.  You’re going to watch your sales plummet. You’re going to watch others show real patriotism, like Anheuser Busch, and applaud the way they show appreciation to our soldiers who are killing the relatives of those Muslims in Detroit and Patterson who would spit on you, or worse, if you went to their neighborhoods.  And I’ll be at those Independence Day parades, applauding our troops and those who know the real  America. Just as it is supposed to be and was before liberals took over and convoluted, ignored our laws, spat on our Constitution, and ruined our America. 
 I’m  through supporting companies that support our enemies.  Bye-bye, 
 Coke.  It used to be America’s drink.  Now your company is  America’s poison.

 Mother of 2 American military veterans Grandmother of 3, or maybe
4 future military veterans, who will be taught  to serve a real America,
for Americans.  All our grandchildren will be taught who the real
friends of America really are, as we enjoy an ice cold cola from
Grandma’s pretty red Soda Stream machine from Israel

 (At least they’ll know who their real friends are.)
