Letter: I don't recognize my America anymore

What happened to my America?

I have served two years in the U.S. Army, 14 months of that was in Korea. I have taught 36 years in public and private schools. I also wrote my own history book, “America, The First 500 Years.” In watching our nightly news, I don’t recognize the America I taught anymore.

Our EPA restrictions are strangling our industry.

Our Oregon Congress has allowed the Feds to close our timber industry.

Obama and Hillary Clinton stonewalled the truth about Bengazi, where four Americans died.

Eric Holder still gives little border security on the Rio Grande. Are 20,000,000 illegals going to stay?

The Boston bomber, Dzhokhar, has four public defenders jumping to his aid. Why? And while the FBI was questioning him, a judge read him his Miranda rights; ridiculous.

Pro basketball player Collins just announced he was gay. Obama said he was proud of Collins for bravely coming out of the closet, like he was a hero. Please shut the darn door! In a Sunday talk show Billie Jean King said it’s about time gays get equal status. Sure. She said she lost millions of dollars in endorsements when she said she was gay. Boo hoo.

Abortions: America has killed millions of babies under the guise of Planned Parenthood. It’s more like absentee parenthood. What a joke. The Dr. Gosnell trial is a good example of such “caring Americans.”

Our schools have tolerance for anything except God or the Bible.

This is not the America I grew up in or knew. How about you?
