Memorial Day

Some people find Americans arrogant.  Arrogant is being confused with confidence.  In our country’s short history sometimes the biggest weapon we had was confidence.  We weren’t supposed to win so many confrontations because we were only Americans.  Today, some Americans are apologetic for our confidence and our way of life.  They are intent on redesigning our country to resemble a socialistic and sometimes communistic way of life.   That’s the kind of life others are trying to escape with hopes of coming to America to live free.

Are these Americans insane!  I believe so.  These scary types disgust me with some of their shocking comments.  Perhaps those comments are only meant to shock.  Congratulations.  I’m shocked when I read that you admire the terrorists of 9/11.  You’re the same type that want to take more from me so you can have more yourself.  I don’t like you.  I don’t like your thinking.  Strangely, I would welcome you into my garden for a discussion so I could guide you to see how wonderful our country is and encourage you to stop trying to destroy the USA.  So many fight for your right to say the shocking junk you spew.  So many have died so you can try to bring this great country down.  Yet you insist you’re right.

Now who’s arrogant?

Remember those that have given their lives so you and I can live as freely as we do.  I hope you can appreciate them for a moment.

Maybelline, this bothers me. I'm not sure I understand who you're talking to when you use the pronoun "you" in this piece.

Who admires 9/11 terrorists? I am politically liberal and I don't know anyone who does.

Who wants to take from you so that they can have more themselves? I am politically liberal, and I don't know anyone who does.

Who "spews" (can we have a moratorium on that word, BTW?) shocking junk, and - while you're at it - please quote the junk you find so shocking.

who are you addressing?

I love talking with you about gardening, but you seem to be addressing a villain that doesn't really exist.

Respectfully,

Aunt Snow

*Aunt Snow - I hope to have the time for a discussion sometime soon. Today, I'm just too busy in the garden. Thanks for commenting.
