WE’RE STILL THE BEST OF THE BEST

Sorry, but I’m just not interested this week about blogging
about condos or HOAs. Not with the devastation I see on my TV.
Not with the destruction I see to the city I grew up in. This
week, we have larger, national issues to focus on.
It simply bothers me when people post that our country is
broken. No it's not. It is and always was the greatest, most
exceptional, most accomplished and compassionate country in the
history of civilization. The cop that sat on Mr. Floyd's neck
was broken. The thugs who use Mr. Floyd's death as an excuse to
break into stores, burn down our cities, loot, and kill cops and
innocent civilians are broken. The politicians who allow this
behavior and have condoned lawlessness for generations and
believe that there should no longer be bail are broken. My
United States of America is not broken. We are still the hardest
working, diverse, educated and innovative people ever assembled
in one great country and we remain a country where anyone from
any race, color, religion or background can accomplish anything
they set their sights on.
Our public schools should start teaching that in 1776 a bunch of
farmers and merchants who desired freedom, beat the world’s
greatest military and that’s how our country was formed.
Our public schools should start teaching that if not for The
United States, only 75 years ago, the entire world would have
fell to the Nazis and how this country saved the entire world
from pure evil.
Our public schools should teach about how the United States
prevailed against the spread of communism throughout the world,
became the first nation to put a man on the moon, invented the
airplane, telephone, automobile, electricity, cures for diseases
and is the model country for human rights afforded to its
residents. Maybe if the criminal looters knew this, they
wouldn’t have defaced the Lincoln Memorial or World War 2
They don’t learn about the greatness of America any longer.
On the contrary, it’s a 24/7 all-out blitz by the media about
how terrible this country is. It is relentless and it is a
large reason for what you are now seeing in our streets.
So…..maybe we need to spend more time at home telling our kids
and grandkids about the wonderful virtues of this country and
how our parents, grandparents and great grandparents escaped
from countries who were corrupt and without hope, and arrived
here with dreams of being part of a great civilization…..and
that their dreams in fact came true.
