Does Anyone Recognize This Country Anymore?

I know that I don't.

I don't care about your political affilliation, your religious persuasion or socio-economic status, is this what you thought America would be in the 21st century.?

When did the United States stop being a sovereign nation?

sovereign. The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language: Fourth Edition. 2000.

1. Self-governing; independent: a sovereign state.

Our political leaders are afraid to publicly honor the Dalai Lama for fear of offending China. After all, China is our banker.

Our political leaders are afraid to publicly acknowledge the genocide of the Armenian people for fear of offending Turkey. After all we need them in order to facilitate the war in Iraq.

When did the United States become like the former Soviet Union?

When I was growing up I was taught how the Soviets spied on their citizens; how the soviets detained and tortured people and; how the Soviets were always starting wars in other countries in order to spread their political philosophy.

When did the United States start needing to use mercenaries?

When did our politicians start saying that our US military couldn't protect them?

When did America stop manufacturing anything? toys, clothes, steel and now apple juice.

When did CNN decide that Donald Trump was qualified to give an opinion about anything other than divorce, business bankruptcies and greed?

Great reporters like Bernie Shaw made CNN one of the world's most respected sources of news and now we're stuck with Donald Trump's views on Angelina Jolie and Dan Rather. Hmm! Wonder who the world will miss most when they're gone?

When did the US
military start running public schools?

And the same GOP that stands on a "right to life" platform thinks that people that can't afford health insurance for their children shouldn't have them.

Should they have aborted this little one?

Keith talks to Paul Krugman about the attacks of the GOP and the right wing on the children who gave the Democratic response to Bush's veto and in an add about the SCHIP veto

Are they building that wall on the US southern border to keep people out or keep people in?
