Yes We Can? No You Can’t.

Leadership is gone. Dependency is rewarded. Excuses are encouraged. Excellency is punished. Yes We Can has become No You Can’t.

Welcome to modern day America, a country filled with spoiled, weak people who expect someone to solve all of their problems for them. That’s what happens when you have a generation raised by hippies who never punished their children and told them that the world was their oyster. Young people today don’t know how to take care of themselves, and they expect the government to take care of their every need.

When my boys were small I taught them how to hunt, how to clean a fish, how to use a chainsaw. When they weren’t in school or playing sports I had them out chopping wood or using the tractor. These days kids spend half their time staring at their phones, getting softer every day. What are they going to do when they face a real challenge? What about the first time they meet a real bully without their parents to back them up?

They’ll react the same way Obama reacts to Putin and all of our enemies, by backing down and letting them walk all over him.

That’s why this affects all of us. Weak and lazy kids grow up to be weak and lazy adults who elect weak and lazy leaders. When he isn’t on vacation, Obama and his buddies are busy putting us further and further in debt to fund a lazy and dependent lifestyle. They are mortgaging our future to pay for college educations for kids who barely finished high school, and hip replacements for people who haven’t paid a dime in taxes in their entire lives. It’s destroying the country.

At least all the young Democrats who elected Obama and the meatheads in Congress are going to reap what they’ve sown. If they ever get productive jobs, every dime they earn is going to go to paying off all the pensions and health care plans that they voted for. Part of me wishes that I were going to be around to see the looks on their faces!

Americans need to wake up fast, or else it will be too late. We are going to see the consequences of what happens when duty and responsibility disappear and are replaced by selfishness.

My First Post

Hi there. I’m Bruce.

I am a proud American, an avid hunter, and a lifelong resident of the Bluegrass State. Ever since my retirement last year I have been trying — and failing — to settle into the retired life. It has been pretty hard for me to relax and enjoy all this new free time, especially with what everything that is happening to my country. America is going down the tubes!

Some people might be content sitting back while the USA becomes the USSR, but not me. I am not going down without a fight. I used to talk about this stuff with the guys at work. Now I’m going to try doing it here.

Other than politics, I plan on writing about some of the other things that I care about, like UK basketball and hunting deer in the hills of eastern Kentucky.

You won’t hear much about my family, though. Call me a conspiracy theorist but we all know that the NSA can track down anyone who posts anything online. So I am going to ease into things. And you don’t have to be a web guru (and I’m not one) to know that anything you put on the Internet is out there for good.

And so, here we go. If nobody reads this other than the Mrs. and the couple of friends who actually know how to use a computer, at least it will be a good way to blow off steam…
