Still PROUD to be an America? notsomuch

Check THIS out….A Gallup poll says:

“….. the share of people who are “extremely proud” to be an American has dropped sharply, from 70 percent in 2003 to a new low of 52 percent today..”

What do you say about this?  

I say “Thanks, Obama, when did you do ANYTHING to help Americans feel proud of our wonderful country?  Why didn’t you lift us up instead of bring us down when Blacks rioted in Ferguson and Baltimore?  Why did you do your apology tours across the world, making excuses for WE who saved so many people around the world?   Why did you seemingly do everything in your power to further racial antagonism from the time the Harvard Prof “beer summit” happened till now?  Why did you destroy relationships with Israel and other countries?   Why didn’t you keep our military in Iraq so we could have continued fighting them there instead of giving them these seven years to get HERE and get effective in killing our countrymen, to the point we may never get rid of them now?  How can anybody be proud of a country which has allowed this to happen?  Why did you have to use such withering insults toward Republicans and anybody else who disagreed with you?  How could you even consider destroying the Constitution like you have?  WHY did you damage the health insurance situations of so many Americans?  What were you thinking when you convinced our young people they’re entitled to everything from the government? ……”

We could all go ON and ON and ON………When I was in school none of us even considered not being almost ridiculously proud of our great country!  We had no other way of thinking about her!  We were TAUGHT TO LOVE HER and, as we went through our classes, we learned more and more why we should be proud!

How does that sad poll feel to you?  Think we can bring her back?

I wrote this before the FBI recommendations re the indictment…..I suppose we are all going to join that list ….maybe it’s now about 10% who are extremely proud to be American?

    Indvidual responsibility . . . fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work . . . patriotism . . . government which served the people, not vice-versa . . . ou sont les ethiques d’antan.

    Long ago when I first joined the Navy (1959) it still had men who’d seen action in WWII and Korea. Often they’d tell us “soft, self-centered, spoiled young brats,” “Boy, this sure ain’t the same Navy I used to know.

    When I finished my 24 years’ active duty, I remember telling the kids who worked for me . . . good techs, but not made of the hardest steel, “Guys, this sure ain’t the same Navy I used to know.”

    Then my son joined and did his 24 years’ active service. When he retired, he told me “Dad, this sure ain’t the same Navy I used to know.”

    Could be a trend is developing here.

  3. I’m boiling mad — and grieving at the same time.

    Our republic has been polluted and perverted by Democrats (Progressives).

    One I sent out to my e-mail group earlier today:

    Purt-nigh impossible to have lived in North America during the past 20 years or so and not heard

    “In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories” and “In New York City’s war on crime, the worst criminal offenders are pursued by the detectives of the Major Case Squad. These are their stories.”

    Allow me to fix those for ya:

    In the American justice system, politically based offenses are considered de rigeur. In Washington D.C., the corrupt party hacks who perpetuate these habitual outrages are members of an entrenched clique known as Congress. These are their distortions. And in the Clintons’ war on ethics, the worst enemies are truth, justice, personal accountability, and genuine public service. These are their treacheries:

    The first thing he did was trash and end Nasa for all intent and purposes. It was our crowing achievement. How proud we were when we got the first man on the moon. We would sit in front of our t.v. spellbound as the first walk on the moon took place. Summed it all.

  6. John M. Berger says:

    How’s that DIVERSITY working for you?

  7. FB says:

    As a new citizen, I think constantly about it and I am proud. I feel very American because I’ve adopted all the values. I don’t cling to my French heritage, I don’t hangout just with French people. I’m integrated. But at the same time, I’m increasingly sad to see where things are going.

  8. Mal says:

    The above are all reasons that explain Trump’s popularity. Add the continuing damage being inflicted on Hillary’s campaign plus the continuing attacks worldwide by radicals, it will continue to boost Trump. Now they are looking into the Clinton “foundation” which will further weaken her chances………………..(hopefully!).

  9. fredd says:

    Mal: based on how the results of the email beef went, I suspect that there is even less evidence to suggest ‘intended’ malfeasance on behalf of the Clintons regarding their phony foundation. Hopefully Jim Comey is not around when this matter is settled. The guy is an embarrassment.

  10. Silverlady says:

    We can’t say that he didn’t warn us that he was going to change America, but he didn’t say it would be to The Banana Republic of America. The Manchurian Candidate has accomplished more to ruin this country in 8 years than any dictators could have done. But then he has his pen & his phone, plus a neutered Republican party, Quislings for the most part.

  11. Silverfiddle says:

    We will never “get it back.” The turd-world-ization of the Progressive State of Amreeka will continue. Another decade of progressive tinkering and experimenting with out military, and Hellary and the gang will have its effectiveness reduced to that of the average European nation. Two more progressive Supreme Court Justices will slam the door on any remaining silly talk about rights, the constitution or “going back.”

  12. Imp says:

    “I keep thinking that the lawlessness and corruption of our government will cause the people to rise up and throw the bums out. I keep being disappointed.

    Will this flagrant violation of the public trust finally do the trick? Could the stench of corruption be any more blatant? The supposed-to-be-secret meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton; Barack Obama’s parading around with Hillary on the campaign trail in order to give himself a virtual third term; the director of the FBI outlining Hillary’s malfeasance and then blithely announcing that “no reasonable prosecutor” would go forward with the case. It is astonishing what just happened. Maybe, just possibly, the people will finally rise up and say Basta! Maybe. But when I shush everyone and cock my ear what I hear is . . . crickets. This is not a good moment for the United States of America.”

    JMB, I deleted our comments…it is apparently NOT TRUE. At least for NOW 🙂

    Imp:I just watched a Blitzer/Bernie interview..BOY, Bernie got TICKED OFF!
    People WILL NOT RISE UP…..
    WHY NOT?

  14. Bob says:

    Yes. I am still proud to be an American. I will do everything I can to get the pimple called progressivism off my posterior region. After all, there is nothing progressive about economic slavery, political correctness, or forced racial diversity. It is all part of the progressive agenda of central control that harks back to the days of Stalin. Now, with the Hillary type justice, we have the raw evidence of the Soviet style nomenklatura (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nomenklatura) right here in the USA.

  15. geeez2014 says:

    Bob, the kids are the ones NOT proud of our country; they have no reason to be. All they hear is negativism…the gov’t can’t get along and it’s all because of those lousy Republicans, we cause wars and are imperialists (never mind they can’t point to ONE PLACE we’ve been imperialistic!), the climate is falling apart because of the lousy Republicans, the races are at odds because of the lousy president but they don’t attribute it to that, the constitution is old and antiquated, there are still people who actually believe marriage is for two sexes and there are even still people who don’t like the idea of killing babies, etc etc.

    We HAVE to change these views or how CAN these punks feel proud?

  16. Sparky says:

    There’s 52% that are proud to be an American? I’m shocked. Don’t mean to offend, but I haven’t been proud of our country since the first Clinton. With the elevation of yet another Clinton, I know our Democratic Republic is dead. Either get used to it or prepare for war. It’s our choice. I know what my Scottish/Irish ancestors would have done … 😉

    MIND BLOWING….this is the FIFTEEN YEAR OLD STORY of a family killed and burned by the father….on CNN’s website. WHY? Like there isn’t enough awful stuff to lay on Americans these days? OH, maybe because he SHOT his wife and 2 kids? AND was an “OUTDOORSMAN” and SOLDIER! UHOH!

    This is amazing…will the damned media EVER STOP? CNN still hasn’t mentioned the 66 dead in CHicago this past weekend. SURPRISE!

  18. John M. Berger says:

    “We HAVE to change these views or how CAN these punks feel proud?”
    A big part of that is the result of indoctrination in PS K-12 and in many cases beyond. How do we go about fixing that? I hope someone sees a [viable] way to do it. So far I can’t.

  19. Kid says:

    Jan 1989 – GHWBush, followed by Clinton, Followed by GWBush, to be followed by Clinton (if so, assume 16 years of sewage main break activity nationwide).

    As of Today that is 27 years of incestual leadership. If clinton gets in that will be 43 years of incestual leadership. The only other country that even comes close to such unbeliebably corrupt government in North Korea. I can’t even think of an African country that is that dysfunctional.

    Can we fix it? No.

    The country has to be split along political lines. Let the libtards live in their leper colonies and don’t ever let them into our country again no matter how much they say they’ve learned their lesson becuase they don’t learn.

    Another angle on Reagan’s a Time for Choosing. Choose then live with it. If you’re on our side, you not getting free money unless you are truly mental and physically disabled or qualified retired. Being a libtard does not quality you under our rules for mentally disabled.

  20. Kid says:

    mentally or physically. la dee da

  21. Sparky says:

    WHAT KID SAID!! “The country has to be split along political lines. Let the libtards live in their leper colonies and don’t ever let them into our country again no matter how much they say they’ve learned their lesson becuase they don’t learn.” I agree completely. I think it’s time for most of America to secede from Union. Period. Let’s do it! My husband and I have discussed this and I think it’s doable. Just let everything federal ‘fold’ and move on.

  22. Mal says:

    Fredd……….AMEN!

  23. John M. Berger says:

    Kid & Sparky,
    Once again I agree but I’ve yet to hear how the logistical and other problems such as boundaries could be worked out. This is much more complicated than Britain leaving the EU or the formation of the US Confederacy. We’ve morphed into a MONSTER!

  24. geeez2014 says:

    THERE IS NO WAY……”complicated” doesn’t even come into it…’complicated’ would be easier!

    We have to fix this mess, but all we do is blog and worry 😦

  25. FB says:

    That’d be nice. But the cancerous cells would jump over the fence and metastasize in the new environment.

  26. geeez2014 says:

    FB…that’s right. We just have to realize there are liberals who hate the Constitution, hate this country, love killing babies, think anybody should marry, think there are no rights and wrongs, and generally are so far from the America of even as recent as the Eighties that they’ll never learn; and that’s 30 years during which they’ve spread this cancer to children….who are now whacko adults who feel entitled to everything.

    Remember JFK? Today it’s “Ask what your country can do for YOU.”
    I’m not sure we can fix this. Do you see a way?

  27. Kid says:

    FB, We won’t be giving them any free money, so it is going to take them a while to tear down a working system again. Hundreds of years if at all. And if they are of the moslem vermin persuassion, they won’t be alowed to build a mosque, nor will their cult be recognized as a religion deserving of special treatment.

  28. FB says:

    Kid, you just need one politician who figures he’ll be elected by giving freebies and the cancer spreads.

  29. Kid says:

    FB, Yes, many of the founders saw the same problems, yet we managed to go a couple hundred years or more. If we start again, we could go another couple. I find that acceptable.

  30. Kid says:

    PS – I think we’d be starting from a stronger base, since we have a history of pitfalls to learn from.
