No, Freedom Jack is not getting his "transgender" on - today we have guest commentary by Barb B.
I am a woman, 76 years old, and a proud American. I have seen many social changes during my lifetime. So, when I make certain statements, I am speaking from personal experiences.
In grade school, we proudly said the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. Today, the “progressives” are trying to eliminate this patriotic tradition. I am not old enough to remember much about World War II, but I do remember the tremendous patriotism.
I remember Senator Joseph McCarthy warning us about the Communist encroachment. As I reflect on our current liberal administration, our current educational system, and the effort to disestablish our religious freedoms, I can reflect that his warnings have come to fruition.
As a teenager, the attitude of the American citizen on sex was “abstention until after marriage”. Today, not only are our teens encouraged to participate in premarital sex, but condoms and abortions are granted without parental knowledge. In my day, it was customary for sports teams to say a prayer before an event. Today, that is not only discouraged, but the possibility of prosecution hangs over our teams’ heads.
As a child, and throughout my developing years, Christmas was celebrated as the birth of Christ. Today, a religious display is not only viewed with contempt by our liberal friends, but must be displayed with displays of non-Christian exhibitions.
In my days, boys went hunting before school and proudly displayed their guns in the back window of their vehicle. Today, our liberal friends have tried everything in their power to remove the guns from the hands of law abiding American citizens.
Yes, I have seen changes to my beloved country. Some changes are not only foolish, but darn right dangerous. May God help and bless America.
