A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Dr. Laurie Roth Ph.D.
While most the Politicians are blowing stinky bubbles at each other, wild Elephants continue to crash through our front room and into our bedrooms. While our idiot media is picking apart Obama's campaign, Obamanation and calling it offensive, others are engrossed by the unauthorized 1984 Hillary video, painting her as a controlling freak. While folks are horrified by this, wondering if Obama did this or an enemy of Hillary on the other side, we get to relax for a bit as Rush Limbaugh admits his vulnerability for the Babe Valerie Plame. He was quoted on his show of saying….this woman is a babe, and if she weren't married, I don't care what she's done or what her political affiliation is. I'd be throwing my hat in the ring……he referred to the hearings as a propaganda fest. Whets the deal Rush?? Are you desperate for a date or something? Is this the Dating Game?
Just when I was wanting today to rush back to Brittany's bald spots and whose the Daddy of the baby, then I read that JFKs psychiatrist and posse set up the suicide of Marilyn Monroe, allegedly because she was going to expose the affair of the President and her. My, how times have changed. Yes, for a small moment Bill lied about his affairs with 1200 women….I mean Monica, but he managed to hang in there and keep his ever so tabloid presidency going. Now, you have an affair in public life and its practically and award, a talk show, a book deal and of course a few weeks at the Betty Ford Clinic. You bite your lower lip, deny you had sex with that woman, and then go after another chick Friday night. …… Has anyone noticed that Elephants are running through the room?
So, what else is going on amidst all the gossip news flying around like whoopee cushions? Lets see what Sen. McCain wants to do for us. Oh hark! He wants to improve our worldview!!! He is apparently concerned about America's poor image abroad, even with longtime allies. What in the compromising world does that mean McCain? He also said: "I would immediately close Guantanamo Bay, and move all the prisoners to Fort Leavenworth and truly expedite the judicial proceedings in their cases. Then of course warming us up beyond belief is McCain's commitment to address the issue of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. He says he knows how important this is in Europe in particular. Hark! He's so sensitive!!! I wouldn't want to do anything without being sensitive to Europe!
Just how are we supposed to win a popularity contest when much of the current leadership in the world is cowardly and much more concerned about selling out then hanging in there. What must we do to magically win a popularity contest with France, Russia and Germany, when Russia has delusions of grandeur again and sells arms to Iran, or when much of Europe is turning Islamic and selling out their historical and traditional identities? Not that we want to be hateful or be at war with anyone but isn't there a price to be paid sometimes for being on top, excellent, right, courageous, and unique? Or must we become less of ourselves to identify with all the bad choices and sell outs of other cultures?
If you recall, we didn't have but a handful of allies when we attacked the Nazis in WW11 but we did the right thing and they and the Japanese were dead wrong. Who would care then if the rest of the world liked us? I'm all for being a good statesman and using thoughtful and fair language, but not waltzing to a center line, creating a North American Union to relate to our neighbors and turn our borders into a terrorist sponge! I'm certainly not for obsessing over how we will kill the "ugly American" image.
The only way to do that is to stand strong on our principles, our Christian values, bill of rights, continue to stand up for human rights for all and be willing to sacrifice greatly to keep these. We must also all work to become better people, aware of what really matters, God, family, country, not power, lust and greed. I have news for you, if we were a nation of Mother Theresa's many in the world now would still call us ugly Americans as long as evil exists and tries to expand and smother country after country.
it is not the Nazis but its sister, Islamic Fascism. As long as a
country's leadership and population is invested in cowardly compromises
we MUST be the ugly American, if for no other reason than to justify
the bad decisions of so many in the world. They have to hate something
rather than face themselves!!!
