Too much Tolerance Too little shame.

I recently stumbled on a letter to the editor of a small newspaper in the upper mid-west.

I found everything in it to be of interest and I take this means to share it with you all.

What has America become?
Editor,
Has America become the land of the 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, it's 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's wrong to execute a mass murderer;

we don't burn books in America, we now rewrite them;

we got rid of the communist and socialist threat 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's 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?

The sad thing is most of the comparisions are true...we will eventually be our own undoing. When that does occur we will ask how did that happen?

timeontarget commented on Tuesday, Feb 05, 2013 at 16:39 PM

It will have happened because we as a society became too tolarent of deviate behavor.

Too little disipline.

Thanks for sharing...

Yeah tot, alot said but the majority comes from those that come from a conservative mindset. Yall are being marginalized out of existence yet fail to see it.

Tolerance of deferrent lifestyles is not a bad thing. But INTOLERANCE is a bad thing.

We are a nation of immigrants and differing cultures and we are winning.

We are a a Great Melting Pot. We are America.

Sheran commented on Tuesday, Feb 05, 2013 at 18:51 PM

When our ancestors came to America it was to start a better life for their family. Not for welfare and higher taxes!

Up until our liberal educators indoctrinated the youth of old America and led many of them down the path of socialism in the sixties and thereafter our people were too proud to accept a handout.

timeontarget commented on Wednesday, Feb 06, 2013 at 07:14 AM

JM, without some intolerance there will be little or no limit to this society's decline.

Our morality is being trampled by society as a whole.

We were a nation of immigrants and differing cultures.

That nation was mine and your parents and grandparents.

They were called the great generation and they were in fact just that.

INTOLERANCE IS NOT ONLY GOOD IT IS NECESSARY FOR MAINTENANCE OF A DEGREE OF ORDER.

HMJC commented on Wednesday, Feb 06, 2013 at 08:49 AM

I can't agree that intolerance is a good thing however, too much tolerance is not a good thing either. "I'm Ok, Everyones Ok" is a copout. Some things are just not ok. We are a melting pot but if you come to America because it is a better way of life, Be an American dammit! Don't ask for special status because your ancestors were a different ethnicity. Dont ask for an exception because of your sexuality. Be an American first and foremost. Lastly I am by no means a moral stanchion. TOT is right though, being moral is not considered a neccesity. Simply a fad of days gone by. It seems that if one does not concur with an all inclusive acceptance of some of these issues, we are intolerant. If that is the case, than I guess I am intolerant. One of the reasons people come to America was being able to believe and worship freely without persecution. Ironically it seems latetly that if one does not buy into "alternete" lifestyles we are being "persecuted" Bottom Line, I live in a country that DOES afford me the ability to think and feel as I choose. Regardless of who approves, I am going to continue to do so.

for maintaing a degree of order

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Feb 06, 2013 at 16:54 PM

I will admit, Tot, that there is a middle ground. I ain't uh advocatin complete anarchy, fostered by those on the left or those on the right. Both sides have their shareof demons. My personal opinion, of course, is that there are more on the right at present.

I am sure that I would be one of the first ones that would be lined against a wall and shot should the right prevail.

I do not like waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption. I think we may just disagree on how to fight it.

Politics and marginalization aside, there's a LOT of truth in Ken Huber's comments.

Jimmy Mack, When was the last time anyone in this country was stood against a wall and shot for expressing their opinion? The fault lies on both sides of the political spectrum and not just the right. Let's face it, we have become a nation of the offended and the freeloader. Now it's considered evil to work hard and succeed unless you are willing to share your hard earned success with those who live on the taxpayers dime. The values that made us a great nation no longer apply. Now its anything goes as long as it makes me feel good and who cares how it affects others. It's a shame that we have people who have no pride or shame that their very existence depends on handouts from the government. I wonder if it every occurs to the folks in Pollution on the Potomac that those who get up and go to work every day have families they need to take care of first. Apparently not, because all they do is whine about the poor and the uneducated. How poor is someone who is drawing Food stamps, an EBT card, subsidized housing, and a free cell phone? Probably living better than a couple working for minimum wage. The system is turned upside down and getting worse.
