We are doomed as a society, as a country, as a race. America is fat, lazy, and worse - entitled. Is it my fault, or yours? I don't think so. It is evolution.
America was once a proud nation of warlike people, independent, self reliant. That ended after the Second World War. We started giving in to the communist progressives in our society because our economy was booming and our influence was spreading around the world. The class wars were on.
I was born in 1957, literally into the "Space Age." I was able to grow up in the 1960s, and come of age in the 1970s. I have lived at the best time there ever was to be an American. My generation has failed future generations though. We have allowed the evil evolution of professional politicians - and Ruling Class Political Families.
We have been self indulgent and lazy, afraid to bomb our enemies into oblivion because that might cut into our budget for saving the whales. Afraid to tell homosexual people they ARE different. Afraid to let our kids play football. We have become a sissy bunch of whining, pathetic, narcissists.
For people like me, it’s time to get another beer out of the fridge, relax, vote Trump when the time comes, watch him lose because this isn’t my America anymore, and enjoy the rest of my life the best I can. Now, if the kids pull their heads out of their nether regions and decide to point us back toward patriotism, pride, and capitalism, I’ll happily join the fight again. But until then, give me a shot of Kentucky bourbon and a beer chaser!

A young Verizon salesman just rang my doorbell, ON MEMORIAL DAY, to tell me about Verizon's new FIOS service. REALLY? I told the kid to tell his supervisor I was outraged that Verizon was sending people door-to-door on MEMORIAL DAY. He looked at me, perplexed, and said "Why?"
Poor kid. Let's just say I explained it in a way I don't think he will have trouble remembering when he relays my feelings to his higher ups. Am I wrong? Am I too sensitive to the meaning of today?
I called Verizon 1-800-922-0204 and got a live person by hitting "0" for an operator. I told the representative to relay my feelings to his supervisor, which he promised to do, and then gave me this address to write to:
Verizon Wireless ATTN: Correspondence Team PO Box 5029 Wallingford, CT 06492
I know stores are open, but should a Company send reps to your DOOR on Christmas day? Hanukka? Memorial Day?
