You know what makes me sick? You know what makes me so mad I just wanna rub Compound-W on a warthog? See if he disappears.
Remember last week – we were talking about ‘when did America go soft and squishy?’ Yeah – this is a hard country settled by rugged people. No sir– there wasn’t nothing easy about building America.
Back in the day, settlers had to look out for Indians. You could get eaten by a grizzly bear. Lost in the wilderness. Or you starved to death ‘cause you couldn’t get over the mountains until the snow melted in the spring. Of course – you could go cannibal. That was hard.
Today – folks are worried about people using the wrong pronoun. Really?
So, me and the boys down at the Duck Inn started to make a list last week – when exactly did we know America went soft. Like, when they took the lead out of paint. When it became a law you had to wear a seatbelt. And when the greatest danger to American life was revealed to be gluten.
Yeah – sometimes I weep for my country. And sadder still – we got a couple more. Got the list here – somewhere. How about – when the Army Recruiting Office became the ‘Military Career Center’. What the hell?! In our day – you wanted in the Army, all you needed was to know which was the business end of a rifle and a mean streak. Today – I guess you need a resume and three references. That’s wrong.
You know when it was confirmed America went soft? When they started taking the tags out of T-shirts because they bothered people. You know what should be bothering people? Communism.
I saw that movie, the Reverend…and in one scene…Leonardo Cappachino sleeps inside the carcass of a dead buffalo. That will put your annoying T-shirt tag in perspective.
You know when America went soft? When they started putting the calories and fat grams on the fast food menu boards. Excuse me? I’m at the Wendy King because I’m hungry…not healthy. No menu board ever talked a fat man out of French fries.
Wake up, America!! The question is: Can we get the real God-fearing, flag-waving, hard-working America back. I doubt it. I’m Earl Pitts, American. Buy my Book: MADE IN THE USA: https://amzn.to/2wKN5Ju
