There is another thing that bothers me. Why are they are so secret about what they see on the moon, Mars, and in space itself? You would think that they would want us to know that they were successful in getting to those parts of our universe. We did see the landing on the moon and the astronauts stepping foot on the moon. Or did they? Have we, the American people, been hoodwink into believing that we have been there and done that.
Another thing that I wonder about is the hanging of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the demise of Gaddafi at the hands of the people. Can we believe that they are gone and not just hiding somewhere till it is safe to come back on the scene and take over the countries again? There are still many who believe that it wasn’t Osama bin Laden who got taken out, and that may be so. There always were reports that these men had others who would take their places whenever there was the chance of being taken out. Hopefully, they are gone from this world.
I guess that in time, the world will be a safe place to live, but in the meantime, why should we, the people, live in fear of others who do not share the independence that we have? You come to America to live, you should have to declare your desire to take the means to be a citizen, which means you promise to honor and work in togetherness and respect the laws and of our land, with no exceptions.
As citizens, we follow an oath to keep and maintain the laws of the land which were set up for all and not just a few. It is not fair that outsiders refuse to honor our land.
