We Are The Masters Of Contradiction! Hear Us Complain!

Americans have become the biggest bunch of crybabies this side of the Atlantic.

We Are The Masters Of Contradiction! Hear Us Complain!

First off, let me just say that I love my country. I am proud to be an American and I will stand with my country no matter the opposition. I believe in “One Nation Under God” and I unashamedly wave the Red, White, and Blue. So, I’ll be the first to admit that something has got to give.

Americans have become the biggest bunch of crybabies this side of the Atlantic. We have been blessed with an incredibly unique country in terms of our liberties, freedoms, and protections, but we are ungrateful to the point of losing it all.

The Façade Of Taking A Stance.

We Americans are the masters of contradictions. The proof of this lies in the actions of our politicians’. The one who once stood on certain policies now condemns them because of popular opinion and personal advancement. What we believe in is too often determined by current fads or social and political bandwagons.

We say we want freedom, but we limit the freedoms of our fellow countrymen. We make laws to protect the delicate feelings of certain people groups, while completely disregarding the positions of others. One persons freedom should not limit the rights of another.

One Nation Of Over-Sensitivity.

Here lies another issue, personal “rights.” We are constantly bombarded by people who want their rights. “I want this!” “I’m entitled to that!” “You owe me this!” Excuse me, but you do not deserve to be handed anything. You want free college? I’m sorry, but there’s no such thing. Somewhere, someone will be paying for your liberal arts degree while you complain about how oppressed you are. Plus, if you want the type of education that free schooling will provide you, then go back to high school, because common core is as good as it gets.


The truth hurts, but when it comes to protecting the future of an entire nation, hurt feelings should be the least of our worries.

The citizens of this weakening nation need a wake-up call. The problem lies beyond political affiliation, rekindled racial tensions, and hogwash presidential candidates. The heart of the matter is the human heart; otherwise known as the source of wickedness. We all seek personal appeasement and we all have a soap box on which to stand, but we have to look at the bigger picture. The choices we make and the policies we change don’t just impact us, they impact a diverse nation with a heritage and a future that is made up of individuals. Individuals that deserve an equal say, locally and in Washington.

Let’s Add “Agreement” To Our National Vocabulary.

One thing I think both the left, the right, and the middle can agree on is the declining state of our nation. Right now people are crying out for unity, but the barriers we’ve built up around us are stifling the fire of American patriotism. I believe, however, that the embers are still burning. We need to lay aside our picket signs and wanton of personal appeasement and fan the dying flames, so as to spark a unified positive change in America.

We can no longer fight among ourselves. Arise America. Arise and let us once again become "We The People" Of TheUnited States.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
