Can y’all please forgive me? I am very sorry for what I’ve done. It certainly wasn’t my attention, but I went and done it anyway. I dropped the ball and let you down. It should have never happened, but it did and I am so sorry. My only consolation is that I am not in this ol’ boat, going up stream, paddlin’ with just my arms, alone. Nope, I do have a lot of company, but that don’t make what I have done much easier. So all I can do is apologize to you.
Yeah, I remember watchin’ ol’ John F. Kennedy on TV as he was shot. I was just a young, sixteen year old, punk, but I remember it well. I even argued with my folks. I told them that the government did it, but they would never believe something that far fetched. The event could have opened my eyes, and it did for a while, but I had girls to date, pretty good home cookin’ to eat, fairly good clothes to wear and a whole lot of life in front of me.
Then, I was thirty-four when Ronnie Reagan was shot. By then taxes had gone up quite a bit and gasoline did too. It was still a “fat” time though and I had a family to care for. Folks were basically happy. We weren’t too worried about our jobs or the money we made. We did, however, complain about too much government in our lives and all the extra regulations, but hey, times were pretty good and the sayin’ of the day was, “Well, they are gonna do what they want to anyway, so why worry. We can’t change it.” Yep, that was the status quo. Little did we know, huh?
Even when I turned forty-five, I knew things were getting worse for a lot of folks. Taxes were even higher and gas, food and the cost of living was outrageous. But now I owned my own company. I could afford to take my family on nice trips, eat in good restaurants, wear good clothes and drive nice cars. We lived in an above average home and were all in all, pretty comfortable. I still knew, in the back of my mine, that things were getting worse in the world, and once again, I just ignored my concerns.
Now, I am sixty-four years old and I look back at all the missed opportunities. The things that me, and a lot of folks like me, could have, and should have, done. Sure, now I’m involved as much as I know how to be. I try to inform as many folks as I can, but I am afraid it’s a day late and a dollar short. It just may be too late now.
|WE COULD HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE!|
In one of my previous articles, I wrote about how seniors are picked on. How the younger generations are blaming the seniors on all the world’s problems. Well, they are wrong! Yes they are. They should not blame seniors on everything, but they sure should blame most of us for not doing more, when we could. Blame us for not forming a Tea Party in the sixties. Blame us for not changin’ the corrupt election process. Blame us for not preparing representatives for and by the people. Blame us for not protecting our Constitution. Blame us for not makin’ sure our kiddos were educated correctly. Blame us for not correcting illegal immigration. Blame us for not letting corrupt judges take such control of our “justice” system. Yeah youngsters, you can blame us for these things, but not everything.
So kiddos (anyone under forty-five is a kiddo to me), now it’s your time. Are your kids going to grow up and blame you for all the problems or are you going to get up off your butts and do what us seniors should have done? Please, don’t do what we are “tellin’” you to do, but do what you, hopefully, learned from our mistakes. It’s time for you to find some paddles, get on board and help us get this boat home. Together we can make
great again, but we sure do need your help.
I’m beggin’ you kiddos. Please,
won’t you be a part of America ’s
RECITATION: "I am very proud, that I pray to and worship our Judea/Christian, God Almighty. I am very proud to be an American, who loves all his family and all his fellow patriots. I will defend the original Constitutional. I will defend the rights and lives of patriots to the best of my ability and, if time and resources permit will even defend other Americans, who may fail to believe as I do, but I will never defend a Muslim, believer of the Quran! They are my ENEMY and I DO NOT recognize their beliefs in Islam to be a RELIGION, and I never will! Remember, be proud of, and promote, your beliefs! Be proud you're an American and promote that with pride! Be proud of your families and your fellow patriots and promote that with pride! And last, take some kind of real action and pray “everyday” for God to lead you correctly! Believe me.....this will lead to success.”” -- JOHN L SULAK ...and there you have some more opinions from me, Th' Dumb Ol' East Texas Boy. Take care out there, okay. IN GOD WE DO TRUST!
