WAY Too Much Sense

This is a little essay I stole from Cookie who got it from Doubting Thomas' site of a rant by Rick Roberts of 760 AM KFMB. It's long, but spot-on....

I don't mean to go off on a rant here, but here's the bottom line, I want my country back.
I want my kids to be able to walk to the store or walk to school without being abducted by some 3-time convicted child molester. And the politically correct powers that be in this country just can't seem to get over themselves with "CAN'T WE JUST HELP THIS PERSON!" No! You can't. But they're let loose to prey on more children. I want my kids back.
I want my country back.I don't agree with everything this President does. I've never agreed with anything 100% that any President has done or said.You know, I was very young during the Vietnam War. So I probably missed that thing by a hair. I don't know whether I would have agreed with that or not at the time. I was too stupid to have an opinion at that point and time even though I thought I did.I want my country back.
I want some semblance of respect for authority, whether I agree with it all or not.I want the Boy Scouts to be "boy" scouts, not boy and "we think she's a girl" scouts. I want Girl Scouts to be "girl" scouts not Girl Scouts and "Bruce."
I want my country back.I want to be able to wake up in the morning knowing that I can walk outside without some gang-banger on parole taking my life.Or being able to go down and purchase a car without having to worry about, you know, 90% of the parts being made overseas in some sweatshop.
I want my politicians, when they finally do get my vote, to do what they said they were going to do in the first place.
I want the Abramoff's of the world to be labeled what they are....nothing more than organized crime in a better suit.I want people to say something and when they say something look at me in the eye. And mean what they say. Not say what they think I want to hear. And then do what they want to later, politically or any other way.I want to be able to go out and work and make a decent wage and buy a home. Half the people that are listening to me right now can't even afford to buy a house unless they're working three jobs.
And I want America to be America. All of those opportunities, all of those things that made her great, I want those returned to the forefront. If you want to come to this country we welcome you with open arms. We simply ask that you abide by our laws. I don't want you to snub your nose at our laws, then take advantage of our opportunities, and then cling to the constitution most of which you can't even read because you don't speak the language.I want us to secure our borders because the country is worth securing. The people that live here are worth protecting.I want my country back.I want my children back. I want some semblance of what this country used to be. It's worth protecting. It's worth defending.

I don't recognize this country anymore.Not politically, not philosophically, not spiritually.Whether you like it or whether you don't, God was a part of building this great nation. To remove him is to take away the very foundation of what this country was all about.I don't care about your political correctness!I don't want to know your sexual preference!I could care less about all of that. Stop making it the headline of the day!That's not America.
I want my country back!And the only way I'm ever going to be able to get this country back is if I reach out to the brothers and the sisters that all feel the same way and we say " No! You can't have our country." It's not for sale! Take the price tag off this country!Take the price tag off the heads of our children! Stop it already!
The politically-correct-psychobabble-~~ You are not qualified to release sex offenders back into our neighborhoods.The southern border, more than any other border, needs to be secured tomorrow. For all those that wish to come to this country to take advantage of her opportunity, to live under a constitution~ a living document that breathes in and out just like you do~ this country is not for sale. I should know. I'm one of the owners. You can't sell it without my permission.

SO BE IT!(BEEN AROUND BEFORE, BUT IT'S ONE OF THOSE THAT BEARS REPEATING! )The LawThis is one of the better e-mails I have received in a long time! I hopethis makes its way around the USA several times over!!!!!So Be It!THE LAW IS THE LAWSo if the US government determines that it is against the law for the words"under God" to be on our money, then, so be it.And if that same government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not tobe used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.I say, "So be it," because I would like to be a law abiding US citizen.I say, "So be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.I would like to think that those people have the American public's best interests at heart.
BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I'D LIKE?Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don't believe the Government and its employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of American life.I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, it's just another day.
I'd like the US Supreme Court to be in session on Christmas, GoodFriday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays. After all, it's just another day.I'd like the Senate and the House of Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for "Christmas Break." After all it's just another day.I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."In fact....I think that our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshiping God...) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day....What do you all think????If this idea gets to enough people, maybe our elected officials will stop giving in to the minority opinions and begin, once again, to represent the 'majority' of ALL of the American people.SO BE IT........P.S.

In God We Trust, God bless you & yours and GOD BLESS THE USA

Helluva rant. Don't agree with all of it (think Congress should be restricted to being in session 'bout 120 days/year for $79,000 per annum) but on the whole, he nails it.
