Rick Roberts, San Diego AM 760 (KFMB) talk show host, went off on a little rant back in February regarding the state of the country. On his blog, he invites everyone and anyone to reprint and share it, so I am… if you’d rather listen to it, or maybe read along while you listen, try this.
I donâ€™t mean to go off on a rant here, but hereâ€™s the bottom line, I want my country back.
I want my kids to be able to walk to the store or walk to school without being abducted by some 3-time convicted child molester. And the politically correct powers that be in this country just canâ€™t seem to get over themselves with â€œCANâ€™T WE JUST HELP THIS PERSON!â€ No! You canâ€™t. But theyâ€™re let loose to prey on more children.
I want my kids back. I want my country back.
I donâ€™t agree with everything this President does. Iâ€™ve never agreed with anything 100% that any President has done or said.
You know, I was very young during the Vietnam War. So I probably missed that thing by a hair. I donâ€™t know whether I would have agreed with that or not at the time. I was too stupid to have an opinion at that point and time even though I thought I did.
I want my country back.
I want some semblance of respect for authority, whether I agree with it all or not.
I want the Boy Scouts to be â€œboyâ€ scouts, not boy and â€œwe think sheâ€™s a girlâ€ scouts. I want Girl Scouts to be â€œgirlâ€ scouts not Girl Scouts and â€œBruce.â€
I want my country back.
I want to be able to wake up in the morning knowing that I can walk outside without some gang-banger on parole taking my life.
Or being able to go down and purchase a car without having to worry about you know 90% of the parts being made overseas in some sweatshop.
I want my politicians, when they finally do get my vote, to do what the hell they said they were going to do in the first place.
I want the Abramoffâ€™s of the world to be labeled what theyâ€¦nothing more than organized crime in a better suit.
I want the Hollywood elite to make movies to entertain me. Not use their celebrity to sway me politically one way or the other.
Quite honestly, if youâ€™re a has-been-pseudo-celebrity I want you to go away quietly, so that I can remember you fondly through your â€œartiste workâ€ thatâ€™s left in the archives.
I want people to say something and when they say something look at me in the eye. And mean what they say. Not say what they think I want to hear. And then do what they want to later politically or any other way.
I want to be able to go out and work and make a decent wage and buy a home. Half the people that are listening to me right now canâ€™t even afford to buy a house unless theyâ€™re working three jobs.
And I want America to be America. All of those opportunities, all of those things that made her great, I want those returned to the forefront. If you want to come to this country we welcome you with open arms. We simply ask that you abide by our laws. I donâ€™t want you to snub your nose at our laws, then take advantage of our opportunities, and then cling to the constitution most of which you canâ€™t even read because you donâ€™t speak the language.
I want us to secure our borders because the country is worth securing. The people that live here are worth protecting.
I want my country back. I want my children back.
I want some semblance of what this country used to be.
Itâ€™s worth protecting. Itâ€™s worth defending.
I donâ€™t recognize this country anymore.
Not politically, not philosophically, not spiritually.
Whether you like it or whether you donâ€™t God was a part of building this great nation. To remove him is to take away the very foundation of what this country was all about.
I donâ€™t care about your political correctness!
I donâ€™t want to know your sexual preference!
I could care less about all of that. Stop making it the headline of the day!
Thatâ€™s not America.
I want my country back!
And the only way Iâ€™m ever going to be able to get this country back is if I reach out to the brothers and the sisters that all feel the same way and we say â€œHell No! You canâ€™t have our country.â€
Itâ€™s not for sale! Take the price tag off this country!
Take the price tag off the heads of our children!
Stop it already!
The politically-correct-psychobabble-hug-a-tree-experts ; You are not qualified to release sex offenders back into our neighborhoods.
The southern border, more than any other border, needs to be secured tomorrow. For all those that wish to come to this country to take advantage of her opportunity, to live under a constitution a living document that breathes in and out just like you do, this country is not for sale.
I should know. Iâ€™m one of the owners. You canâ€™t sell it without my permission.
I want my country back!
