I am beginning to wonder about America. Last week, two Las Vegas police officers were executed while eating pizza. The perpetrators are dead, a husband and wife team. Violence in this country is out of control. It is not about guns. I have been to Switzerland and Israel where there are guns everywhere and they are not shooting each other. It is the American culture that is falling apart. We have taken the dog-eat-dog style of Capitalism and Social Darwinism to new heights. We think that countries 12,000 miles away are out to get us. We believe that Chicago and Detroit are cities that we should aspire too. We destroy the ethics of our families. Our borders are completely trashed...there are none. We don't understand that "big brother" will not take care of you, yet we vote as if "he" will. We inundate our children with television and gameboys. The tragedy of living here and watching the disintegration of basic values and ethics is heart wrenching. We pride ourselves on our independence, but step over others on our way to get a cappuccino. Our leaders set bad examples. Each and everyone of us know something is wrong, but we fail to take action. We are scared and intimidated. It is quite obvious, things are not working. Here is a proposal. WAKE UP AMERICA! Semper Fidelis, Always Faithful. That's how it see it today, June 12th, 2014.
