The whining of America.

Post  fshnski on Wed Aug 21, 2013 10:50 am

It was a good run. But for America, it is now officially over.

We survived abhorrent British taxation. We survived savage attacks from Indians on the frontier. And we survived the Civil War. We survived all of that only to voluntarily give it all up in this, the easiest of times.

No, I am not talking about making a mockery of our “nation of laws” by granting amnesty to 12 million illegal immigrants, most of whom bravely risked their lives to come here precisely because we are a nation of laws.

Nor am I talking about the staggering debts we have piled up so high that we have no realistic hope that even our grandchildren might one day pay them off.

Nor am I talking about this pernicious plot by the federal government to take over our health care system so that the last few Americans who can still afford to pay taxes will be on the hook for everybody else’s poor health choices and crappy eating habits.

No, I am talking about Major League Baseball’s decision to invoke video replay on virtually all calls made during the game. This means close calls at first, disputed infield fly rules and whether the outfielder catches the ball or not. By castrating the umpires on the field, the league is destroying the sport.

Football has become all about the thuggery of human violence. Hockey is all about the fights among the Slavic snaggle-tooths. NASCAR has always been all about the fiery wrecks.

But baseball is the last of unspoiled American goodness on a large, popular scale. It is the final redoubt that remains free from the litigiousness, whining and nanny hand-wringing that has sapped the joy and good out of just about everything else. I mean, the local rodeo clown cannot even pull off one little goofy stunt without launching a national outcry over invented racism.

I like the replay system in football and I like the home run video replay in baseball.  Why have a team lose a game on a blown call?

Everything I post I confirm on another site. If I'm depressed it's because I'm sick of seeing the greatest country in the world be led downhill by the left. They have infected every sport and every news and every entertainment outlet. I know my opinions won't make a difference. I think our nation is unfixable. But I refuse to go down without a fight. If I depress you don't read what I post.
