Goodbye, America?
American Greatness, by Robert Curry

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/2/2018 10:28:15 AM

On Sunday, my wife and I went for a walk in a park located in an affluent area near where we live. We were struck by the fact that no one else there was speaking English. We heard only Chinese and Russian. It felt eerie, as if the park had somehow been taken over by, lost to, people who represented America’s two most populous strategic adversaries. Sunday evening was New Year’s Eve, so we tuned into the countdown to midnight at Times Square. This year, again, given pride of place just before midnight was John Lennon’s anthem to a world

Read the lyrics to “Imagine” (in article) and you’ll understand what Curry is talking about. And what is totally unacceptable to Americans. Yet an almost “official” beginning to a new year features Lennon’s “one world, no borders, no possessions” view that so many Liberals desire for our country...

I call malarky. John Lennon didn´t speak for most of us and I would be interested where Curry and his wife found no English being spoken an a park. The northeast? The west? I am assuming it wasn´t in the south or southwest.

I did stay up to watch the NYE celebration from NYC. There were many songs, I remember Imagine and New York New York. There are many celebrations of the New Year in America, if you don´t like the one on the news - find another one.

I have hated that song, ever since I listened to the lyrics and understood what he meant, probably the second or third time I heard it, just when it came out.

Nasty, hateful, atheist, Marxist song. Lennon was much like Lenin.

I used to live in the United States of America.
I now live in the Disjointed Republic Of Obamastan.

English was the national language.
There is no national language now.

Been to Miami lately?
Been to San Diego lately?
Been to Las Vegas lately?
Been to NYC lately?

I feel like a foreigner here - except I don´t get all the freebees and specialized treatment. I´m now a 2nd class citizen.

Well the liberal and progressive Democrats love mass immigration, both illegal and legal, thus forcing great future demographic change that is bound to happen by allowing a huge number of poor, uneducated, and socialist oriented peoples from all over the world into the USA. The Democrats know that the vast majority of those foreign born people will eventually become Democrat voters, useful to the Democrats in their quest to transform America into a socialist utopia. When all that has been going on over the years, the only interest that the wimpy Republicans have shown is toward the cheap labor factor for their business connected donors who fund a lot of their reelection campaigns.

There are stores here in FL that I no longer patronize because Wifey & I are the only ones who speak English and she doesn´t wear a hijab.

While I share the concern that my country is changing (in a bad way), I’m not sure the demographics of who walks in a NYC park is evidence of it.

As someone who lives in an affluent western ‘burb of Houston, I, too, often notice the plethora of foreigners in the parks where my wife and I walk. As one of those “diversified” places liberals dream of, Houston has a populace that is roughly one quarter each of whites, blacks, Hispanics (yes, I know, also technically white), and Asians. Yet you don’t see one-quarter of each group represented in walks in the park.

It’s mainly Hispanics and Asians, and my conclusion is that black and white people are just too damned lazy to take a walk in the park. Of the white people who DO walk, most of them seem to be European. The True ‘Muricans are prolly inside watching TV, playing on their phone, or updating FakeBook.

Who wants to watch a bunch of stone or drunks in NYC? Did that a couple times. Saw Dick Clark on there after his stroke. I know he owned the show, but I was stunned they put him on. I have never watched since. CNN is even worse. I watched our local station in Seattle show the fireworks from the Space Needle. There camera coverage was quite mediocre. A Three Stooge Festival would have been more entertaining.

One Word; Naiveté
In this Utopian World, where love, peace, security and harmony live; who plants, harvests and delivers the food, feeds the livestock. Who builds and maintains the infrastructure, cuts the timber, builds the houses, drives the trucks, ships the goods, sews the clothing, cleans the toilets, cares for the sick, buries the dead, builds the automobiles…? Who decides what jobs each person must do? Who decides what is right and wrong? Is there anyone maintaining morality and who decides what is moral? What form of government will it have? Anarchy, Democracy, Republic, Socialism, Communism, Fascism? And who decides that?
People like John Lennon, who never produced anything but a few songs, and made millions doing it, can sit around and waste his life dreaming of things that are not possible. The rest of us must work, make a living, provide for our families, and obey the laws.

Houston and Fort Bend County has been one of THE fastest growing areas in the US. As a native Houstonian who remembers the days of Urban Cowboy, Kathy Whitmire, and jazz clubs, Houston is now the 4th largest urban center of the US...and it has all the expected negatives due to a series of corrupt Democrat mayors who spent more time traveling to other countries, paying off friends and slashing services and trying to manipulate courts for their favorite activist groups. Promo groups like to talk about how Houston is becoming more urbane, but in truth urban sprawl has spilled into the surrounding counties, demographics display the degredation of more and more Democratic ponzi schemes, and we´re FLOODED with immigrants, not just from other countries but also from other states looking for jobs.

Houston no longer feels Texan. As someone who grew up in its outskirts I often now have to leave my area and head west in order to feel like Im still in Texas. We have third world drivers here who have NO friggin clue as to how to drive, yet native Houstonians get blamed for having bad traffic. We have Yankees here bringing their Yankee expectations, but they still want the TEXAN friendliness.

What´s worse is its spreading to smaller towns. My uncle is mayor of a town near San Antonio and they are right where my little Houston suburbian town used to be 25 yrs ago.

I want my Texas back.

The New York Times just won a Pulitzer Prize for “public service.” I’ve never met this “public” to whom the New York Times has provided some great service.(Snip) The days of the New York Times as a reliable, salient, or sane source of news have passed. It exists now as an ideological apparatus of the progressive state, shilling for the hard-Left and the bureaucrats who pander to them. It is least of all doing good work for the public.

´A Man Without Courage´: Dershowitz

Alan Dershowitz on Monday slammed James Comey for leaking memos of his private discussions with President Trump. Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, said the former FBI director "demeaned" the bureau by giving the memos to a law professor who then leaked the content of the memos to the New York Times. "This is a man without courage," Dershowitz stated on "Fox & Friends." He argued that Comey should have spoken up when Trump allegedly pressured him to end the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and also when the president allegedly demanded Comey´s loyalty. "Instead, he leaked it," Dershowitz said.

Former FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday that he no longer considers himself a Republican. “I just think they’ve lost their way, and I can’t be associated with it,” Mr. Comey said on ABC News podcast “Start Here.” Mr. Comey attributed the change in the party to the 2016 election and said that after he was fired, he started to become more politically aware. He has been a lifelong Republican and said that in today’s party, the only Republican he does respect is former 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney. He called Mr. Romney, who is running for the open Senate seat in Utah, a “person of principle and honor.”

Sure, San Francisco has great facets worthy of postcards and travel books, but it also has a worsening underbelly that D’Alessandro says he can no longer gloss over. People injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, their dirty needles and other garbage strewn on the sidewalks. Tent camps. Human feces.

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.
