What kind of animals have we become?

Every day in this country we see examples in the news of people who seem to be without values, lacking integrity, and we ask ourselves, “What is wrong with the people of this country???” Today, Larry asks that question in response to two truly jaw-dropping events in the past week. Are we becoming a nation of fools who have no values whatsoever? Thank you, Larry, for expressing what I think the majority of people are thinking … SIGH.


The mother of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17 year-old charged with fatally shooting two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during protests following the police shooting of Jacob Blake, received a standing ovation on Thursday while attending a Wisconsin GOP event.

GOP Senate candidate Lauren Witzke on Thursday defended the right-wing PROUD BOYSgroup on Twitter, arguing that the male-only organization exemplifies “patriotic masculinity.”

These two news stories from the MSN feed should have all of us asking, “What has happened to us?”

Calling the Proud Boys (they are on SPLC’s hate group list) examples of ‘patriotic masculinity’ and extending a standing ovation to the mother who drove her son in full costume with weapons to Kenosha to kill two protesters are not my idea of patriotism. Forgive me for being old-fashioned, but what ever happened to Kate Smith singing “God Bless America” and marching in the Veteran’s Day Parade in downtown…

  1. Thank you for sharing!… There are closed minded elements of America’s (and the world) society who resist change… now, in order to protect their image, they will create a ideology that will justify their actions (Bible, Constitution, etc)… this has been ongoing since homo sapiens stood erect, learned how to walk and invented the club…. in history’s past and lack of technology, one would not hear much about what is transpiring here, and the the world… in today’s technology, one can run but cannot hide… 🙂 here in the prairies of America one can learn about practically anything anywhere, if one is so inclined… 🙂
    Unfortunately that same wonderful technology has given a voice to those closed minded societies and, at the moment, the world is concentrating on their actions because it makes headlines… no one is interested in someones attempt to save the Monarch Butterfly, deal with climate change, etc… 🙂

    Until we meet again…

    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
    (Irish Saying)


  2. High Holy….How many times Oh Lord. How many times????
    Usual s**t. Been happening since F*** knows when.
    Only bright is, those who start it are usually the ones who get their faces rubbed in it…those of them that are still alive that is.
    Ok I’ve said my piece, the rest I keep locked up.
    Take care you guys it’s an a-hole episode in History.
