“Why MAKE AMERICA GREAT “AGAIN?” What part of our history was GREAT that you want to go back to. I’d rather see: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT, ALWAYS!” Here’s a statement from Walt Disney that was featured at the end of Meet the Robinsons.” “Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious… and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. –Walt Disney” -courtesy of Peter Borreggine
Peter, but America isn’t a fairy tale and Walt Disney was loaded with them! And there were periods in American History when values and morals were much better than they are now; I think that is a big part of making America Great again! When they took prayer out of schools and no more civics class as mandatory this country started to decay in many ways and some then saw America as a roll of toilet paper or nation to take advantage of; like Rodney Dangerfield used to say “I get no respect!” America has given so much help to other nations and peoples and then many of those same nations tell us to take a flying f-k! I think I would like going back to Post WWII American stature and values, or even the early 60’s before all the social revolution madness started and Vietnam became a thorn in her side!
“Lawrence- that’s the first time I’ve ever heard a justification of MAGA like that. Bravo. I mean it.”
Peter, don’t get me wrong Walt Disney is an American icon and was an amazing person as well as leader in a new pioneering frontier, I love em! But, when we get down to the nitty gritty reality of what makes a country good and right to claim the title of being a world leader, entertainment and the arts aren’t going to cut the mustard or get the job done! The world is an ever increasing dangerous place loaded with many dangerous players and enemies of the American People! We need our Government Leadership to be exemplary along with having the “Best Military” bar none to hold onto that leadership position because we know full well there will be a host of devils out in the world looking to knock the leader off that perch!
This is a precursor to a much longer article to come!
