Not nice, not nice at all. I work with many foreigners. Any time any one of the foreign rat bastards would tell me what’s wrong with the good old USA I would, depending on the situation either stay pointedly silent, daggers shooting from my eyes or I would say something nasty. Something along the lines of, “We are the greatest nation on earth. Why should we listen to you?”
Or something equally obnoxious.
And I’m still saying it.
We are the greatest nation on earth. We do care for our fellow man. Show me another country that when it stumbles, fails, steps right back up to succeed beyond anything we thought possible.
It went wrong in New Orleans...at first.
Being the greatest nation on earth, we will find out who failed us and why.
We stumbled; we failed our people in a big way.
But we stepped right back up and we will succeed.
My God, look at what Houston alone is doing. I have never been more proud of my city than right now.
I’m proud of all the other cities stepping up to help.
It makes me feel so good that we are taking care of our own. I know that when I donated as much as I could I felt good. I know that everyone who can will be helping in the days ahead.
Be negative all you want, stay a few steps behind the rest of us who are stepping up to help.
People like you have been around my whole life, always criticizing, always laying blame, and never getting anything done.
Do me a favor?
Just get out of the way, the rest of us have work to do.
And you know something? It’s always been this way. Those that can, do what needs to be done. Those who can’t, or won’t, do anything constructive, sit around and criticize.
