The future of the USA is going to be people that often don't even understand or care about the Bill of Rights.
Really? What is your evidence for this? The next election will be all about the bill of rights. It is at the heart of all of our political discourse, save the budget and it plays some role in that. Perhaps you do not understand what the bill of rights actually means. Don't be dismayed that you do not. It is the subject of debate by the finest legal minds of our or any time in American history.
Heck, a lot of them don't even speak (proper) English.
A great many American heroes did not speak proper English when they arrived here. Einstein. Von Braun, Levi Strauss. Madeline Albright, Henry Kissinger, Joseph Pulitzer, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Isabel Allende...I could go on forever. But you don't have to be famous to matter. They guys who take care of my house are important to me. The people who take care of my hotel room, the doctor who I will work with this morning at the homeless clinic, the guys who just installed my new air conditioner, on and on, may have learned or be in the process of learning English but they are important to me. If I move to Italy (and I am considering it) my Italian will suck probably for as long as I live but I will do something to make myself useful. Maybe teach English or volunteer in Public Health.
The only thing they understand about the USA is that they can buy a lot of stuff and that whitey is evil.
Do you for a moment think that the people who come her from, for example, Guatemala leave everything behind, take their families across an entire country( mostly lawless toward migrants) sneak into the US, live in poverty and fear to find a minimum wage job because they want to "buy a lot of stuff" and hate the people they risk their lives to live with? Grow up.
t's usually the boomers that still can't stop talking about how many guns they own, but unfortunately that hasn't protected the country from degradation.
What degradation? Start there. What do you believe the private ownership of guns is all about? I don't keep them to "protect the country from degradation" whatever that is supposed to mean. I keep them because I enjoy shooting them and for the very rare instance when I might feel threatened. Guns don't enforce morality.
But you have taken shots at boomers a few times. First of all son, I don't think you know who boomers even are but here is some few things they have done. Lets start with inventing the computer you are talking to us on and the internet that is carrying your message and that has so profoundly changed the world that we have yet to figure out just how and how much. We are responsible for "more" equal rights for women, minorities and the disabled. We have constructed a university system that is the envy of the world. We turned the scientific world on its ear many times over. We have maintained the US as the only military superpower in the world and stopped the Soviet Union in its tracks. We established the environmental protection agency and, despite the temporary inconvenience of Trump, will still leave the country cleaner than we found it. We are rich, educated, engaged and still running the show well into our 70's and 80's. I only hope your generation does as well. (Though I will tell you that we may be the last or next to the last generation to actually be required to work.)
So since you're so colorblind and politically correct, maybe you'll understand where I'm coming from if I hit you from this angle; They talk about red flag laws (even your boy Trump does it) and are framing white men as dangerous terrorists now.
What a load of shit. Do you actually believe that red flag laws target whites? The very idea is laughable.
Where do you think that's going to lead, as the white population starts to dwindle more and more?
You mean with all of these immigrants trying very hard to live and behave like "white people"? Oh, I don't know. Different shades in the cosmetic aisle maybe?
We're hardly going to Hell in a handbasket...
...a society that's way too diverse (and thus divisive) is not a pretty combination.
Where is your evidence that our diversity is "divisive"? If you mean that American citizens who are black, Hispanic or Asian want the equal rights that the bill of rights says they should have is somehow divisive then I would say that the results of this struggle will make us stronger, richer and more free not tear us apart.
Fun Fact and really think about this: There is far more diversity in the white community than there is in the minority community. Don't believe me? Put an Assembly of God fundamentalist in the same room with an Episcopalian and see what happens. Maybe a surfer from California and an Arizona Cowboy? A New York conservative Jew and a Georgia cracker? Diversity is not only about skin color. We have been a magnificently diverse country for as long as we have been a country. You are simply blinded by your racism.
A major crisis isn't far away. Only a fool doesn't prepare for the worst after taking a good look at how insane society has become.
I have lived 7 decades. If you think today is an "insane society" it is only because you did not live through the 60's. Or little disagreements are a joke compared to the changes we underwent in the 60's and 70's. You are just too young to remember them. Yet you are a product of some of them.
Dude, I don't really care if you want to act all holier than thou by calling me a racist for observing things. You aren't the first to call me that buzzword, and you won't be the last.
God I hope not. I hope people of good conscious call you a racist until you grow up and see the error of your ways.
