What has America become?
Has America become the land of special interest and home of the double standard?
if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics;
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;
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 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.
