Nobody's Opinion

Who Deserves the American Dream? The Americans!

Nobody Remembers

I have just gotten home from my yearly Thanksgiving dinner at my son’s house. It was just the four of us, my husband and I, plus my son and his girlfriend, plus one, my old friend Pattie. Pattie has had a rough time the last few winters. She has lost her husband, then her mother, then her father….nobody should be alone on the Holidays. I pretty much insisted that she come to our dinner, which was much like trying to get a squirrel to take a bath. But she gave in. American mask

Everything was going well, until, my son, trying to pick the right moment, told us all that his whole company had been laid off, even his boss. He had maybe one more week’s paycheck and then he would be back to being unemployed. Luckily, he already has a job interview lined up, but nothing is ever sure in this world. It’s a GM dealership, one of the biggest in North County (Where the famous Ferguson resides.) and it was only a matter of time before it closed.  It’s bad timing because he was just starting to get back on his feet, and we all agreed at dinner, best not talk about it.

Everyone tried to be cheerful, but it’s never easy, when the news is filled with stress and worry.

As we drove down the street coming back home, the streets were full of parked cars, families visiting, eating…and I wondered to myself, how many other families had gotten bad news?  I have noticed that my one neighbors, who always have their Christmas manger scene out first, are not at home much anymore. Their house was dark. It’s a good white family. (Sorry, I am counting the whites from now on.)  Three kids, two grandkids. He had told me recently that sometimes he has had to work three jobs, one as far away as Texas. Yes, he drives to Texas to keep the family afloat. He would drive home on the weekends.

This is starting to be the norm in many parts of America. But the news is always, “HEY! The economy is doing good!”mall-shopping-346492

Now, they just lie.

Pattie and I, were watching reruns of the Thanksgiving Parade, and stated talking. We have known each other since high school, and we started talking about how many businesses have been lost in St. Louis in our lifetime. The whole city has changed. Like the once great city of Detroit, the businesses here, have been destroyed, by unions, by globalism, by greed and corrupt politicians.

What’s left in jobs? Government jobs. Health care jobs. “Service” jobs.  That’s about it.

On our way home, I didn’t even recognized some of the old neighborhoods. All changed. Not for the better either.globalists presidents

Getting home is always good after a big Turkey dinner. After getting the dogs out, I went  and turned on our Christmas lights out in the front of the house, I didn’t really want to write, because the future, not only for our family, but for the whole country looks bleak. And what makes it especially hard to take, is it doesn’t have to be that way. Sure, our economy is destroyed pretty much for all but those who are lucky enough to have the few good jobs, but more than that, our spirit is broken.

As I turn on the TV, FOX was doing a PR piece on the Bush Family. The nation is tired of the Bushes, and I thought, OH good god. They had our lives, as did the Clinton’s, and they did…nothing. Nothing. I really didn’t like Daddy Bush, I grew to be really disappointed in George W., and Jeb…stop it. Jeb isn’t going to get my son a job. He isn’t going to help us in any way. He will help, the Hispanics.

I’m starting to hate all of them. The Bushes think that just because none of the men were horn dogs in office, America should want them.

Wrong. We remember. Sorry Brit Hume, I can turn you off.

Once upon a time, even in my life, if a person worked hard, and was decent, and honest, he had a chance at the American dream….and the globalists (Clinton’s AND Bushes) have taken it away.

So, I get mad. Then I get sad. When I get sad, I read.

I went into my old closet full of books to look for some bit of history, and I found a book I really didn’t even know I had…it was even autographed. Who knows where I got it? Some book sale somewhere.DT book

It was a book released in 2000, by Donald Trump:

The America We Deserve

Yes…guess what? Donald Trump has been wanting to run for the Presidency since 2000. Who knew?

So, I turned off the almost nauseating propaganda piece on the Bush Dynasty, being broadcasted to the whole nation on Thanksgiving Night, for god’s sake, (We’ll probably get the rerun on Christmas Day)  and I picked up the book, and read a few pages.

I wanted to share with you an excerpt from The American We Deserve.(Page 27)

It’s time to look around and its tie for all of us who care about the American Dream to change the political buzz from happy talk to straight talk. Here’s the bottom line: If a policy threatens the American Dream, we need to go after it.

I’m going to shoot straight about terrorism and about the foreign threat. I’m going to talk plain about the economy and how to keep the system solid at the core. If we do that, then we can ride out any storm. I’m also going to talk about Social Security. I’m lucky enough not to have to worry about getting A Social Security check, but most American do and they’re right to be worried about their futures.

And he goes on about the kids, and ends the chapter with this:

I’m not worried about whether or not the intellectual/journalist /political establishment thinks I’ve got the stuff to talk about saving the American Dream. I believe in the American Dream. My business experience shows me that it works, and I want to do everything possible to see that regular Americans can enjoy the same opportunity for success and security that I have had. That means the American Dream unencumbered by bureaucratic ineptitude, government regulation, confiscatory tax politics, racism, discrimination against women, or discrimination against people based on sexual orientation.

We must all have equal access to the American Dream. It’s a dream we deserve and a dream worth fighting for.

And he wrote this in 2000.

I SWEAR to you, I had no idea that I had this in my closet. But I really needed something tonight to keep me from the hopelessness of what seems an ever ending series of political disasters making everyone’s life miserable. I happen to think God just plopped  that book in front of me, as a sign, not to lose hope.

I can’t say, after seeing the entranced and powerful people coming at to destroy Trump, that even if elected, he would be able to pull of the miracle of trying to undo the damage that the Bushes, the Clinton’s and the Obama’s have done.

But…like tonight, I know deep in my heart the only answer is to have hope.

There ARE good people in the world.

And once in a while, miracles do happen. Sometimes in history, great men do make a difference.

Donald, I’m all in.

If a man can keep a dream that long, then he is truly, the real thing.baby cake

I only pray that the nation can hold on long enough to survive, until he can get into office.

Can Donald make America great again?

He is the ONLY one who wants to do it for us. For the Americans.

And we all know, who we are.

  1. The American Dream. I raised a glass in the Tavern to that and to all my fine American cousins. Thanksgiving has been changed. Perhaps getting back to the origins and recognising where things went wrong. http://parzivalshorse.blogspot.com.au/2015/11/thanksgiving.html
