There's always plenty of interesting material making the rounds on the Internet. Some of it is publishable and some isn't. I particularly enjoy those items that raise some profound questions regarding political correctness.

Most of these emails encourage you to pass them on if you agree with the message. Since I am not involved that much with the social media such as Face Book, Twitter, etc., I usually do not pass on the little tidbits that I read while surfing the Net.
Recently, I received a message that was simply three short sentences. I found them fascinating. In an effort to pass it on, I also thought I would add my own commentary as a response to those questions.
The first, “We are advised NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.”
In addressing the first part of this statement, I will simply say that it amazes me just how much our government respects other people’s faiths and religions while neglecting to observe the rights of its own Christian believers.
Some well-known female reporters seem to have forgotten the long, difficult battle for equal rights for their gender but will not hesitate to don face and hair covering to get “the interview” with a Muslim leader who believes that women are inferior. Fear or respect? Meanwhile, in our country a small minority of non-believers is hard at work desperately trying to keep Christianity out of our government. Fear or respect?
As for gun owners, many might feel they would not need to have a weapon of self -defense if it weren’t for the action of those few lunatics. I also say, more power to the legal hunters who are harming no one with their actions.
The second question goes like this, “Seems we constantly hear how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money?”
The answer is simple. Our government is being run by a bunch of aristocrats who simply do not care about the plight of the working class American. Do you really believe that President Obama or the members of Congress will ever have to worry about Social Security or health care benefits? If you do, you probably still believe the Easter Bunny makes home deliveries.
While I am not opposed to welfare and Food Stamp benefits for those that need assistance. However, I am firmly opposed to those funds being used to buy votes to get certain people elected. Let’s face it the government is robbing Peter to pay Paul. In other words, the Social Security funds are being used to pay for other benefits. Somewhere along the way, our leaders seem to have forgotten that John and Jane Doe worked hard all of their lives for this tiny nest egg called Social Security.
The third question simply asks, “Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level below World War II, but we aren’t stopping payments to illegal aliens, such as payments for each child, money for housing, Food Stamps, free education including college and the right to vote?
I saw a report on NBC News the other night that almost made me be ashamed to be an American. The subject was homeless veterans and a fruitless fight to get some dilapidated buildings converted to shelters to get them off our streets.
How can we possibly ignore the plight of those who put their lives in harm’s way to defend the life that we live today and at the same time pour millions of dollars into footing the bill for a group of people that should be taken care of by their own country?
During the last election, the American people began to speak up and finally said, “Enough is enough. The status quo cannot continue in Washington. As John Lennon once stated in a powerful song, “Power to the people.”
Let’s send the aristocrats home. Pass it on.
