Editor:

Those of us who are now in our 60s, 70s and 80s no longer recognize the nation in which we grew up in.

We are Strangers in Our Own Land (paraphrased Stranger In A Strange Land by Robert Heinlein Sci Fi author) and getting worse daily.

We believed in the American dream. We worked hard, paid our taxes and obeyed the law – even laws we thought were idiotic.

We married and had children. We struggled to raise families. Some went to war, like our fathers and grandfathers before us.

We thought that when we grew old, there would be more for us – more than alienation.

Most of us God-fearing, gun-toting, Bible-carrying folks really don’t recognize or are even willing to accept puppet Biden’s America. We came from better!

Patriotism has become passe.

Our military is led by men who are social workers and politically correct hacks not willing to wake up from their Wokeness Syndrome.

They can’t fight, but they’re great at getting soldiers to use preferred pronouns and combating imaginary racism in the ranks.

Giant corporations have replaced individual enterprise, which – in many cases – has been taxed and regulated out of existence making us dependent on the Chi-Coms even for our Rx’s and God help us if they invade Taiwan who is the world leader in CPU production and other implements we use on a daily basis for what manufacturing is left that we do here in the USA.

Government bureaucrats and corporate executives are like the pigs and men at the end of Orwell’s “Animal Farm.”

We look in vain for a Ronald Reagan, a Lincoln or Teddy Roosevelt and hope and pray for another Trump, and instead, we find corrupt clowns like wizened Nancy Pelosi, Commissar Ocasio-Cortez (the Cuban pinup girl selling socialist snake oil) and the four Socialist twits and our president – a cranky septuagenarian slipping noisily into senility and controlled by the puppeteers!

Believe me folks, the Democratic Party of old is not what you’re getting today and if you think it is, you’d best wake up.

If you’re white, you’re told that you are responsible for every problem that plagues people of color based on critical race theory, just as cops are to blame for the deaths of thugs who threaten their lives.

Savages who burn down cities are hailed as heroes and celebrated as warriors for social justice.

Snatch and grab in the stores must be ok because if they are caught, the thugs are on the streets within hours to do it all over again.

Anarchist groups force lawless, liberal cities to take down statues of Washington and Columbus and many other historical heroes of America.

CRT force fed to our students in schools promote that racism is in our blood and is the fault of whites… and remember, throughout the course of human history, racism has never existed anywhere but here which began in 1610.

Seems to me that the “current problems” we have now began about the time Biden took office.

Thomas Sowell once said: “The word ‘racism’ is like ketchup. It can be put on practically anything - and demanding evidence makes you a ‘racist.’

By “despoiling the earth,” we’re also responsible for climate change.

If we end up paying $7-a-gallon for gas – well, it’s our own damned fault.

Filling up the tank is pathetic at best and down right nightmarishly agonizing for the near future prospect.

Sowell also said: “Would you bet your paycheck on a weather forecast for tomorrow? If not, then why should this country bet billions on global warming predictions that have even less foundation?”

But now, we’re told that there are “sexual minorities” – that people who used to be considered odd are in fact oppressed. And that a man who thinks he’s a woman in fact is a woman (regardless if a female Supreme Court nominee can’t tell us what a woman is) – and is entitled to use the ladies’ room with our granddaughters.

And if we refuse to accept this bizarre fantasy, we are hateful and racist!

What passes for entertainment is sickening – all blood and gore, sadistic killers, and aliens in various guises. We search in vain for contemporary movies with characters we can admire or at least care about. So, we retreat to cinema of the 40s and 50s on TCM.

On top of living in a country that’s unrecognizable, we can’t even afford to live here anymore. You need a second mortgage to buy a steak.

A hamburger and fries at McDonald’s are a gourmet feast.

Inflation is at a 40-year high and accelerating, and we have the idiot, liberal, socialist politicians tell us it’s because government isn’t spending enough.

They just want us to become more dependent on the government, (because it works so well, right?) so that the millionaires and billionaires can support us all so that we don’t have to work…(so what if they all leave, who pays us not to work?)

What a bunch of socialistic crap!

Sowell also said: “It is a way to take people’s wealth from them without having to openly raise taxes. Inflation is the most universal tax of all.”

Once upon a time our parents could retire at 65, in their mortgage-free home they bought in their 30’s. We’re still working at 75+ and a full retirement is a distant dream.

We’re working to provide benefits for illegal aliens, addicts and loons who camp out and defecate on the streets and steal from the corner store at will.

Many of us are the grandchildren of immigrants, a fact of which we are proud.

Our people helped to build this country. But we witness with complete and absolute horror the tide flowing across our southern border unimpeded.

The Socialist Democratic party sees them as much needed voters. We won’t defend our own borders but are expected to defend those of distant lands.

This used to be an English-speaking country. Now it’s ballots in 20 languages, court interpreters and press one for Spanish.

Our feeble, hypocritic president (who’s been sucking on the federal teat for half-a-century) is unable to perform his Constitutional duties but has successfully waged war on domestic energy production.

We went from energy independence (a monumental feat in itself) under President Trump, to beggars with a gas can in a matter of months.

Those pulling his strings say climate change is the biggest threat to our national security – along with transphobia.

Washington sputters about Putin’s war on Ukraine but imports 670,000 barrels of Russian oil a month.

While he lets pipelines rust and our oil, coal and natural gas remain in the ground, Biden pleads with the Saudis to pump more – and is thinking about imports from the Marxists of Venezuela and the jihadists of Iran, both Russian allies.

Apparently, oil from anywhere outside the U.S. doesn’t pollute.

Politicians in office for life treat us like mentally challenged children. They snicker at us, who pay their exorbitant salaries.

So, we limp along into old age, too proud to go on the dole and too stubborn to just give up.

But never say die when there’s so much at stake, when surrender now would be a betrayal of the America dream that once was.

Lastly, Thomas Sowell summed it up with a great statement: “Freedom has cost too much blood and agony to be relinquished at the cheap price of rhetoric.”

And that’s exactly what this Socialist lead government is trying to take away, our freedom…

P.S. Are you really, really better off now, than when President Trump was in charge?
