I did not arise at 4am to watch the Royal Wedding because I knew that it would be replayed throughout the day. What I have watched, I think we can learn a very valuable lesson. Respect. I have to say I was amazed at the amount of respect that each one of the well-wishers portrayed as they ushered in to Buckingham Palace. This crowd was unbelievably respectful of the officers that held the line, knowing that these officers were unarmed, and outnumbered. It shows a true and undeniable love of country, and a level of respect that there is no comparison.
After watching, I have to wonder what has happened to respect and love of the red, white and blue. We aren't seeing much of it these days, and have to wonder if it is only going to get worse as inflation gains momentum, unemployment rises, lack of leadership from our President, and a Congress that doesn't act on the voice of the voters.
When there are plans for a sticker campaign against American corporations to attempt to bully people not to buy their products. Not only is this vandalism, but a complete and utter disrespect of freedom, for these corporations to make their own choices. And for the people that buy those products must wonder what the repercussions will be if they purchase one of the stickered items.
Maybe the President should take notice. We are supposed to be teaching our children that bullying is unacceptable. But why should he, when members of his own administration are using bullying tactics. When you have Secretary of the Treasury Tim Geithner preaching that if the debt-ceiling is not raised by July 8th that the sky is going to fall in the form of the United States of America is going to default. What better scare tactic then to put into the minds of the nation that unless we borrow even more money, then the United States will be in complete financial ruin on July 8th. read more »
