I'm a Bad American

I got this idea from one of my favorite radio stations and revised it to suit my beliefs.

I drive a truck, and smoke, and believe I shouldn't have to hide out in the weather to do it.. I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not to some idiot in Washington who's never had to do a day of hard labor in his/their life and who gives it to others who've never attempted to work a day in their lives.

I don't always care about appearing compassionate. I know that playing with guns doesn't make you a killer. I believe it's called the Boy Scouts for a reason. I think I made better choices than most of the homeless.

I don't think being a minority makes you noble or victimized. I don't care if you call me a racist, cause I don't believe you should be given a job for anything less than your abilities to do the job. I don't celebrate Kwanzaa, this ain't Africa!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, you should do it in English and it aggravates me to have to search for the English directions on the box. I don't use the excuse "it's for future generations" as a shield for socialist opinions or actions. I want to know what gives you the right to censor what I read, listen to, or watch on TV.

I know what the definition of lying "is". I think Oprah is annoying, and self grandizing. Who else would start a magazine and only have herself on the cover. I believe it's wonderful to be kind and giving but advertising it gives it a different intention.

I believe in getting an education but I don't believe having one gives you the right to a job that you don't know how to do.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to their own God or gods, and they can do it in their schools. I believe the Star Spangled Banner is a cool song.

I've never owned or was a slave and I didn't wander forty years in the desert after getting chased out of Egypt and I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and NEITHER HAVE YOU, so SHUTUP already.

"The Roadrunner" still makes me laugh. I believe a self-righteous liberal out to Save The Earth is more dangerous than a Play Station. I want to know which church is it exactly where the "Reverend" Jessie Jackson preaches.

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child - it takes a parent, or two. I think tattoos and piercings are fine if you want them, but they're not artistic statments.

I guess we are all "Bad Americans" then, because if we were to be truthful we all feel one or more of these feelings on any given day!!
Good for you for being brave enough to state it!!
Have a great day just being YOU!!

I love you for saying what you did. I'm a liberal, but, have many, MANY of the same beliefs you do. My friend tells me I'm not a liberal, just smart. Ha!

I couldn't have said it better. Those who take it the wrong way are maybe in the wrong frame of mind?

I'm Australian, I've sold my F100 and quit smoking, I follow a different flag, but I agree with the rest of the article.
Well written.
A pity more didn't think that way.

Kwanzaa isn't an African holiday, FYI. It's, funnily enough, an American construction. Ha ha!
