“The Un-United States”

                                               This is the rant to end all rants.

                                                         Part One Of three.

This could be fact, fiction or fear out loud…I don’t know where it came from. Maybe it’s a list of the insanity that’s going on today. I do know it could be a true story in the future…Hey, this could be of what the future holds for the United States, which by the way isn’t so united anymore…..As you all know or at least some of us do, we are in a never ending terrorist war and have been since before 9/11. What you don’t know is, or maybe you do, is that we cannot possibly win this war. Some might say we can control it and that’s true but only if they allow us too. Just when you think it looks like some progress is being made, something, somewhere around the world will blow-up, people will die or the bomb won‘t explode because of a malfunction or just plain stupidity. Talking about bombs…Even if we used the Atomic bomb, we couldn’t come close to winning this war. I was thinking maybe we could have peace talks with the Taliban like the old days? I haven’t heard any of our so-called leaders mention that. Well, it wouldn’t work because we would only end up paying them not bomb us. They would call it foreign aid and there are millions of radical Muslims that want to kill us we, couldn’t get them all to agree on everything. No, Its too late, they really hate us. If things stay the way they are, in seventy-five or a hundred years the most powerful nation in the world, the United States of America will become a Muslim country with Mosques in every city and town.. What we are feeling now is the growing pains of that radical movement all around us. Everywhere I go, I can feel the enemy is here and I can see the evil in their eyes.. Yes, and don’t laugh, In the future it will be Veils and Burkas for the woman with the woman walking behind the men. At noon, the prayer horn will sound for the men. Did you know that the Muslim men around the world stop what they are doing and pray five times a day? What I don’t understand is how can there be two religions? One that is a peaceful Islam and one that is a Radical Islam and will blow up innocent woman and children and then praise Allah. They both read the same Koran but are exactly the opposite. The radicals are so twisted they even kill their own people. Did you know the young girls that go to school are killed and the radical Muslims burn down the school? Today, we all go around in a bubble pretending to be safe and happy but in the back of our minds there is always that nagging feeling that something bad will happen soon. If not that, we wonder why it hasn’t happened yet and what’s taking them so long? Our Government tells us we are safe but the evidence is contrary to what they say. Underlying fear is all around us. Something could happen at any given moment. Even with all the security, the enemy is here, alive and well. While driving by the airport not long ago I seen about 50 cab and limo drivers, outdoors in a half circle with their prayer rugs at 5 o’clock PM facing Mecca praying. Now that’s scary, isn’t it? How can you tell the good guys from the bad guys? The immigration laws have so many loopholes that the bad guys are coming into the United States from every direction.

Writer's Block: Back off!

Have you ever witnessed someone being bullied and just walked away? Have you ever gone out of your way to help someone who was being bullied? How do you think it impacted you and the person being bullied?

I was small in stature when I was young. The result of that was I was picked on when I was a kid…When I was young…Somewhere around 3rd or 4th grade. I was the victim of a bully. I’m sure there are many of us that have had that kind of trauma….I came home crying and my dad explained very carefully what to do when confronted with this behavior…..Keep in mind I was a shy quiet kid and found it very difficult and painful to be in that situation as I’m sure many of us were. My dad took me aside and told me when this bully started to pick on me and push me around to pretend to run away and when he chased me to turn quick and punch him in the nose…..He said, “The force of the punch with him running into my fist would cause his nose to bleed“. He told me that he would never pick on me again. I never got a chance to do that. The bully died 6 months later of a brain tumor. Years later I worked with his dad on the same airport. I never mentioned that incident to him. I’ll bet his Dad thought of his son when he seen me. We were the same age and went to the same school.

"Good for you Arizona"

Yes, I agree and you are absolutely right but what I see happening is, American citizens are losing their jobs because of Federal rules and regulations on hiring. A lot of the people crossing over into this country are criminals and misfits. People come here bringing diseases and are draining our already maxed out health care system. The taxpayers are overburdened as it is. The only jobs are minimum wage. The environment is circling the drain. I only say, its got to start somewhere. What if a foreigner applied for a job where you work and by a trick of fate a federal rule said they were to have your position or God forbid, you were a victim of a crime committed by a illegal. Again I say its got to start somewhere. People are getting angry…I said it out loud. I’m afraid you will be hearing it more and more. Thank you for responding. Hopefully still your my  friend…………..~Lar

I wrote this letter to a friend who responded to an article I wrote..I wish I had this picture at the time to show them....Better late than never...Read the sign tax payers. It speaks for itself...
