On the road again,,,,, with Georgia on my mind!
Tonight, while I was checking into the hotel, Pinhead and I asked the girl behind the counter which pizza joint was the best, and she said that she didn't eat pizza. We were like, "You don't eat pizza, what, are you not an American?"
You know, just giving her a hard time. And she says with this little disdain in her voice, "No, I'm not"
My first reaction was, man, she says that like, why would I want to be an American. And then she says, " I am an American in paper only" I was totally blown away. It turns out she was born in Venezuela. And to her benefit, when pinhead made a derogatory remark about Chavez, she curled up her lip like she was disgusted with Chavez. And we said, at least she didn't like that guy. She looked to be in her early 20's, and her accent was all American. And I started to wonder how many other 20 something kids out there that feel like her. And then Pinhead hit it right on the head.
He said, " No longer is America a melting pot, but it's more like a tossed salad, We are all in the bowl but everyone has their own little part. No one is assimilating." I tell you that this is going to be the most damaging problem in our country. Multi-culturalism is evil! It is screwing up our country, faster and more than anything! Especially when it goes hand in hand, with ILLEGAL immigration. You can't have people coming here and then only thinking they are American in paper only! Where is the pride?! How could you possibly be patriotic?! If you are American in name only, would you be willing to sacrifice for the good of the Country in wartime, like our grandparents and great-grandparents did in the 2 World Wars?! I don't think so! What would be the point, to sacrifice for a country that your only reason for being here is that you didn't like the guy that was running the country that you just left. I'm sorry but I just don't trust people like that! In my world, you are either all in, or all out! NO in between!
I think that most of you that know me, know that I am very competitive! When I used to play basketball, I would love to take the couple of guys that no one wanted and beat the idiots that thought they stacked their team! There is no greater feeling that beating someone who thinks they have all the angles nailed down. Now, just messing around with my children or family, unless it's against my brothers or cousin, I just play to have fun. But you get me in a real game and your not trying, I would rather you just quit when your on my team. I would rather have a physically handicapped person that gave their all than some preening, pre madonna that didn't even try. I guess I said all that, to make the point that, When your an American, you had better come correct! NO more of the hyphenated crapola! Besides, that is just a slap in the face to those of us that consider ourselves just as Americans! When you put your ethnicity before American, example: African-American, Asian-American, and so forth, apparently that means that you consider yourself an African first and an American last, or a Asian first and American last. How can that be?!! Anyways, sorry for the long rant! But hey, had to get it off my chest!
Thanks for listening and GO DUCKS!!
