I Am Proud To Be An American


AmericanI am proud to be an American! I was born white, I didn’t choose it. I do not owe you anything, whoever you are. And I will not apologize for being so.


I do not support the KKK. I do not support BLM. I do not support Antifa. I do not support ANY terrorist group, foreign or domestic. I do not support racism. I do not support the far left. I do not support the far right. I do not support ignorance either.


I support and respect the U.S. constitution 100%. I support the U.S. Military. I support our police officers, who in fact, serve and protect.
I judge ALL people on their character, the words that come out of their mouths and the actions that follow (and their grammar, on occasion, LOL). If you act like a thug, I will treat you as one. If you respect my opinion, I’ll respect yours and we can maturely agree to disagree, or we can never speak again, I will be fine either way.
You can’t erase history. Changing the name of a street or taking down a statue doesnt change anything, nor does it cause it to never have happened. Hitler may not be in bronze but the Concentration Camps are still there to tour. The Colosseum is still there, as well as the Pyramids. And all are worth touring. All done by slaves. I would still encourage you to see them.
There are leaders of other countries or people of other religions that hate me, would love to see me dead, simply because I am American or because I am a Christian. You can’t fight weaponry or violence with words or demonstrations. Sadly hate will always exist.


If you don’t agree with someone else, no matter the subject, don’t get involved unless they ask you to. Even then, do not be argumentative. Mind your own business, learn how to protect your loved ones and yourself from the evil walking around this world and, if the day comes that evil approaches you directly and uninvited, you will be prepared. Stay informed and take the initiative to educate yourself on what’s going on around you. Don’t just listen to the narrative agenda around you, do your own research.


Stop asking for change. People don’t change because you want or ask them to. Be the change. You are the only person you can control. Stop trying to blame one side, it takes at least one willing participant from each of the opposing sides. Instead, stop making a spectacle and fueling the wildfire among our civilization by constantly stirring the metaphorical pot. There are people in this world who make lots of money and get lots of power because they keep you misinformed. (Fake News) Stop looking for the cause.


Life is too short, you never know when or where your last day may be. Enjoy life, smile, love your friends and family, your neighbor. Be kind. Stop being so angry and offended ALL of the time. Look around and appreciate the smaller things in life. They are there. If you look as hard for them as you look for something to complain about I assure you, you will see them. Start with yourself.


If this offends you, we can absolutely discuss our differences in a civilized manner.


It is time to grow up. Open your eyes. This world is what it is. The issues in this world are not skin issues…they are not religious issues…they are issues with the hearts of the individuals living in it.


Be happy. Love others. Treat people how you would want to be treated. And don’t forget to laugh. Everyone needs a good laugh. If you can’t laugh at yourself, call me, I’ll laugh at you. 😊
God bless you…. God bless America
