What has america become ?

What has America become ?
Editor ,
Has America become the land of the special interest and home of the double standard ?
Let us see : If we lie to the Congress , it 's a felony and if the congress lies to us its just
politics ; if we dislike a black person , we're racist and if a black dislikes whites its their 1st
amendment right ; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost
nothing for the victims : in public schools you can teach homosexuality is Ok , but you had
better not use the word God in the process , you can kill an unborn child , but it is wrong to
execute a mass murderer, we dont burn books in America , we now re write them ; we got rid
of the communist and socialist threat by renaming them progressives ; we are unable to close
our border with Mexico but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea ; if you protest
against President Obama's policies you are a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or
George Bush in effigy it was your first amendment right . You can have pornography on TV or
the internet , but you better not put a nativity scence in a public park during Christmas ; we have
eliminated all criminals in America , they are now called sick people ; we can use a human fetus
for medical research but it is wrong to use an animal . We take money from those who work hard
for it and give it to those who don't want to work ; we all support the Constitution , but only when
it supports our political ideology ; we still have freedom of speech but only if we are being politically
correct ; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games ; the land of opportunity is now
the land of hand outs ;the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the gulf oil spill is that neither
president did anything to help .
And how do we handle a major crisis today ? the government appoints a commitee to determine
who's at fault then threatens them , passes a law , raises our taxes ; tells us the problem is solved
so they can get back to their re election campaign .
What has happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave ?

what subjects do you avoid in letters to friends and family ?

Me I guess I avoid mentioning religion or politics to people who are my pen pals and I really dont know that well . However people that I do know well I try and write cheerful and uplifting letters and certainly not ones that I am guessing will offend .However the mere mention of religion to some people gets them in an upraoar and why Im not sure other than they seem to think that person writing said letter is trying to stir something in them for a debate . Now as for me I try not to dabble in the debate of most things and would probably say something to the effect of well that is debatable and leave it at that .Im really sorry I will finish this blog later . I m headed to bed because I dont feel well today . Have a great and wonderful wknd and day folks .

wow how do some of us get it so easily and others not so much

Wow I just have been at this a long time and I still dont have it down pat and honestly I dont think I ever will and maybe we are not supposed to ? is that the deal ? we are supposed to be able to figure the carb ration = insulin thing . I seriously have been at this a long time and it gets harder and harder all the time . I go high at night and then low low low in the morning and traveling is a real b*%tch sometimes . I hate having to check blood sugars 10+ times a trip and frankly folks it really smells to high heaven . why cant we just really get a cure ? oh my goodness that is it the fda does not want us to have a cure because the diabetes business is a big one !!! Oh well my freaking rant for the day . Have a great one ...

Well another trip to the grocery store

You know I really hate the grocery store I really do . I know some of you out there probably hate it as well especially all of the gf people . gf stands for gluten free . At one time when my blood sugar was hitting the roof the drs bright idea and answer to this was oh let us put you
on a gluten free diet . And let me tell you the grocery store becomes a night mare with gf . I find it is also a nightmare when you have diabetes as well . When I was out and about and used to eat out with friends , they would always say hey you cant eat that or this and frankly it used to bug me alot . I often declined invites to dinner , picnics and other family outings because of it . Now mind you the grocery store is something I often think of with dred . Dont get me wrong I love to smell food cooking just have to remember that in the back of my head that I am always a diabetic . Does that mean it defines me ? No not at all . It is just always in the back of my head . Well take care everyone and see ya soon .
