    AMERICA, Down Hill On A Skateboard?????

    For 50 years I have believed in the patriotic America. Genuine ethics, good moral interests and a fondness and love of the Country. For more than 50 years, during the month of Decmeber it has been Merry Chrismas and we bought a Christmas Tree. I went looking for a Christmas Tree at Home Depot and couldn't find one. I found a holliday tree and was greeted with "Happy Holiday" at almost every store I entered.
    What is going wrong with America? No pledge of alegiance to the flag in schools anymore, no Christmas holiday, constent back stabbing of our President. What has happened to our morals and prinicpals? Over the past 10 or so years the US has had an immense influx of non-Christian/non-Jewish citizens enter the Country. I can't tell you the last time I have been to a gas station, pizzaria, donut shop or local convenience store; ie, 7-11, etc.... where a True American works. No more polite attendants, Christmas decorations, friendly faces, english speaking (understandable that is) people anymore. I believe that if you come to this Country because you want freedom, you do as Americans do. Americans shouldn't have to do as other foreign born people do. When in Rome do we not do as the Italians do? When in Russia do we not do as the Russians do??? America has always been the Big Melting Pot, Life, Liberty, Freedom, but damn, don't change the holidays, respect for our flag and National Anthemn. Everyone should unite behind our President-Right or Wrong, In most cases, he/she can only do what congress allows them to do. It just seems that in recent times, America is heading downhill on a skateboard quickly. True Americans need to stand up for right, back our President-right or wrong, and live in peacful unity. I'd be willing to bet that our Forfathers have rolled over in their graves at least a million times. So to everyone, I say Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and President Obama you keep doing what you rode into Office for..........
