(Ed. Note- I “originally” ran this post earlier this year on a blog called PaleoCon. I stopped blogging for a while, so it went bye-bye. As things are finally beginning to calm down and Life resumes at a ‘normal’ pace, I thought this might be a good post to crank the blogging back up with.
But… things have changed…attitude and all. So, I’ve tweaked the ‘original’ again and shortened it up a bit as I shouldn’t have to spell out things that I believe and or participate in. If I need to spell it out for you, then you’re probably the reason they make warning signs. If you want to read the “real original” version, go here.
So…here we go… again with I’m a Bad American- 2018 version- Updated.)
I’m a White, conservative, Southern male. According to the Liberals and anti-Trump media, that automatically makes me a Bad American…
And I am ok with that.
But just in case that doesn’t quite get me there on the “Bad American” list, read on, Chuckles…
I’ll be there in no time.
I drive a Ford truck. Gas guzzler too. I like raising my gamefowl. I’ve been blessed with a nice house, and I love beautiful women…especially the one that I’m married to.
I believe in the Good Book… in taking care of your kin. I believe in doing good and in helping others.
But don’t for one minute take my kindness as a weakness.
I was raised to believe that family takes care of family. Immediate blood kin, then on down the line…that is until they act stupid or behave as if they are “owed” something… doing little to nothing in return. I don’t like folks living off others kindness… relatives or not. To me they are no better than the crack addicts or welfare queens squirting out babies on the taxpayer’s dime. I work and hustle for my money. If you are healthy and able-bodied, I believe that you need to do the same. Still, if I can help out those who are family, I will. May not be much, but I’ll do what I can.
Along those same lines, I hate folks who think nothing of stealing from others or those who try to hurt others livelihoods. If you need something to survive; if I have it, I will give it to you. Have no problem doing that. But don’t steal from me or mine. Also, it might be a good idea not to cause havoc in my chicken yard, as that’s messing with the way I make a living. Vengeance may belong to the Good Lord, but steal from me and let me catch you, and I will do all I can to help you meet Him a lot sooner.
I also believe in the Second Amendment. So much so that there’s probably a gun/weapon within reach of me at all times. Refer to this if the previous paragraph may apply to you. You have been warned.
I don’t care about appearing compassionate, tolerant, accepting or inclusionary. I live according to what I was taught… and I’m not here to impress or gain praises of others.
This is my life to live, and not necessarily up to others expectations.
I don’t have to agree with others. Nor do others have to agree with me.
If you choose not to be described as either “male or female” but rather you choose to use the other 56 of the 58 different gender classifications on Facebook or think that because you either attended or currently attend some liberal-artsy-fartsy college, the world owes you.
If you believe that abortion is ok for any reason or that hooking up with that ‘she-male/drag-queen reject’ you saw on your midnight run to Wal-Mart just because you had the munchies is ok or cool or; Heaven forbid… “normal”..
Amongst other things…
Yeah… chances are pretty darn good that we won’t agree…
I believe that if you come to this country, then do so like many others have before you and do it legally. Jumping the border, then demanding that folks like me change to make it easier on folks like you won’t win you a popularity contest. Just because those fruitcakes in California accept you, doesn’t mean I will. Oh…and learn to speak English. Last time I looked this was still the United States… not a territory of Mexico or some other Spanish speaking country.
I believe that if you vote Democrat; regardless of who you are, you need to learn your Party’s history before you go off on some race-based tangent…. particularly the part about it being Democrats that fought against the abolition of slavery, instigated the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, participated in and promoted lynching’s, and fought against the civil rights acts of the mid-20th century.
Same holds true if you claim to be religious and vote Democrat. I’d like to know exactly where in the Good Book same-sex marriage, abortion and women preachers/elders/etc are allowed.
I believe that if any of those terms mentioned above either fits you or irritates you, or that you want to change this country to where it suits you… you need to go adios. Let me assure you that Delta is ready to take you wherever, whenever you are.
I don’t want to hear about, eat or drink anything with the words light, lite, sugar-free or
fat-free on the package. If the Good Lord didn’t want mankind eating meat, He wouldn’t have let someone invent the microwave Bacon fryer or come up with the recipe for gravy and biscuits.
I will not be frowned upon or be looked down upon or be made to keep silent because I have these beliefs and opinions. As far as I know (unless something has changed) this country allows me that right.
I will not conform or compromise just to keep from hurting somebody’s feelings.
No…I’m neither angry nor disenfranchised… not racist either. I know and respect people of all color and nationalities. They worked their butts off to do things the right way… to be a part of the solution… not a part of the problem.
I’m just me…
And yes, I guess by some people’s definition, I may be a bad American.
Tha’s ok with me.
