    Friend sent this to me "I Never Cared"

    I NEVER CARED

    I do believe more and more people are starting to feel this way.

    I never cared if you were ďgayĒ or whatever acronym you chose to call yourself, until you started shoving it down my throat.

    I never cared what color you were, until you started blaming me for your problems.

    I never cared about your political affiliation, until you started to condemn me for mine.

    I never cared where you were from in this great Republic, until you began condemning people based on where they were born and the history that makes them who they are.

    I have never cared if you were well off or poor, because Iíve been both . . . until you started calling me names for working hard and bettering myself.

    Iíve never cared if your beliefs are different than mine - until you said my beliefs are wrong.

    Iíve never cared if you donít like guns, until you tried to take my guns away.

    Now . . . I care. Iíve given all the tolerance I have to give. This is no longer my problem. Itís your problem. You can still fix it. Itís not too late. But it will be. Soon.

    Iím a very patient person at times. But Iím out of patience. There are literally Tens of Millions of people just like me that are sick of all your Anti-American crap !

    Iíve always cared about life, and all lives, but now you try to force the notion on me and my other fellow citizens and patriots that certain lives matter more than others. You protest, riot, attack, burn and loot. Your so-called ďmovementĒ has become a radical out-of-control bunch of thugs, criminals and anarchists who are doing harm to our Country.

    We have had enough ! America is the greatest country on Earth, and if you donít like America then you can leave. We are done caring about your misguided ďfeelingsĒ.

    You donít have the right to enjoy American freedoms if you are trying to take that right away from other Americans.

    Please pass on if you CARE !

    ďWe sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.Ē-Winston Churchill

    I agree and was honored to pass it on!
    When guns are outlawed only criminals and the government will have them and at that time I will see very little difference in either!

    In the bullseye, dead center.
    I truly believe we need to get back to basics.

    Get right with the Lord.
    Get back to the land.
    Get back to thinking like our forefathers thought.

    Anyone that wants to use this, feel free. Spread it wide and far.

    We have 2 kinds of people these days.

    The first is content to let others have a difference of opinion. This kind of person, if they find someone irascible, offensive or just annoying in thought or actions, will avoid them or ignore them. They go on about their lives.

    The second kind, when they find someone irascible, offensive or just annoying in thought or actions, cannot allow it to stand. Someone else is WRONG. They have a different opinion and it MUST be challenged. It cannot be allowed to exist. They must be silenced.

    We are dealing with a lot of spoiled children out there.

    I’m in the camp who believe that if you learn to tolerate a little evil, more will come and you will be forced to allow it. The line separating good and bad has been blurred. You must stand for what is right.

    I signed a contract in 1965 that said that I would , defend and protect the CONSTITUTION of the United States of America AND I'm ready and willing to honor that contract TODAY! I'm willing to bet millions just like me would do the same.
    OP expressed my feelings AND anger much better than I could.

    Perfect.

    I too signed a contract with this Country. I swore an oath. I never rescinded that oath.
    Too much of the loud types, are controlling the narrative, while they are in the minority. Yet, sadly, there are many of the majority listening to them, and falling in line with the narrative. I hear it when they say; "Well, I used to believe in XYZ,, but now my (relative or close friend) is (again, fill in the blank) and they feel abused by society. I think we owe them something!"
    Example; "I used to believe being gay was wrong, even in my Bible it says that. But my sweet nephew is gay, and he gets all kinds of abuse. He feels abused & wronged by society, and we owe him & those like him special considerations."
    I've actually had a few conversations like that.
    Or, another one.
    I have a friend who is black. He's a hard working, excellent person. When we were younger, and a bunch of us hung out, his nickname was "n****r Butch. He never took offense to it. I actually didn't call him that to his face, but when others were around & I'd try to reference him, I had to use that to describe who I was talking about to others. About 3-4 years ago, he I I were talking, and we discussed that topic. He told me that he never took offense, BECAUSE we all were never using it as a derogatory description, but only as a nickname. He knew this because more than once, several of the local white guys who hung out with him got into fights FOR & with him. He was one of us, and to this day, still a friend.
    And last year he & I were discussing the current black lives "movement" crap. He was actually VERY angry at the black people, as well as the, (in his words) "stupid white people following that crap!" He felt that George Floyd was a thug & criminal. He said that the force seemed excessive, but that Floyd should NOT have been committing a crime AND should not have resisted.
    BTW; My black friend never even graduated High School. But he's a successful, hard working man.

    My points are that the above post is perfect,, because there are many who feel & believe that. And while some may "make exceptions" for a family member or friend, they will either submit, or return to previous beliefs.

    We are headed for a lot of problems & headaches unless serious change happens.

    Get along, they said, to get along. I felt offended, was told to straighten-up or leave. 39 years. All they required was submission to them. Simply told them "you are wrong". I retired. Feel a bunch less stress nowadays. Still looking for primers.
    Reduce the issue, ignore the drama
