We are NOT the greatest country in the world anymore.........


Once Britain had an Empire and a significant one, half the world map was coloured pink. Then later we had a fairly successful Commonwealth. These days we just watch our legacy go down the plughole. The USA is still the first world power now that the USSR has gone, closely followed by China it has to be said. Militarily you are at least.

I think all that have a history of greatness have witnessed it go downhill as of late. Once you reach the apex, there is nowhere to go but down.

I would just as much expect Americans to stand up for their own country as we do for ours. But, the world order as we knew it a couple of generations, or even decades ago has radically changed! Are we dealing with it all in the best possible way?

Of course it really depends on how you define "greatest" and who is doing the defining.

I suspect a lot of countries in Europe, the middle east and definitely the far east never for one moment considered the USA the "Greatest country in the world"

It's a matter of perspective.

Of course. I don't know who considers themselves to be the judge.

I was just trying to make a point, as I sometimes uselessly do.

I love the USA. I was granted by God to be born and raised here.

Do not know my by any other color than Red, White, and Blue.

Toby Keith said it well....... Much world peace amid war has come of the RED, WHITE, and BLUE.
We'll put a boot in yur arse, it's the American way.
Brought to you courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue.

Stop and think what the world would be without our intervention?
Really think about it. Not that it has all been without reservation.
What might have happened if we had not stepped in or helped?

I think many thanks should be given. Or some of you would not have the grace or freedom to do so today, believe me.

MeowUSA.

The Sound of Music was the story of the German occupation in Austria, and the escape therefrom. You did not see that?
They escaped to live another life.

Pardon me if I have my history wrong.

But, indulge me for the few meowments it takes to view the clip.

You are as allowed as anybody to review and criticize my selections.

Besides.......these are the things most of us wish for and love.

Raindrops on roses. And whiskers on kittens.

Those things that make us what we are rather that what we must be at times.

LOL, what I gave to be a simple whisker on a newborn kitten........

You had to be there, I guess.

I have. Nothing like the love of a newborn, my friend.

Nothing like it.

What some of you do not know or accept is that my mind often travels bounds that yours cannot.

I know love that you cannot accept, know travels that you cannot make.

I live this life, apart from yours. I know it's distant from what you accept as your reality. I spend a lot of time here, searching your archives.....and find it really enriching. You have spent a lot of time with what you call movies and such trying to prove out your existence. You have done well at times. And then, you have proven once in a while that your efforts were fruitless. I will continue to watch.

And you.....at times my greatest friend......and then, my greatest adversairy.

You, of all people should understand.

I cannot control any of you. I can only guide you. You can accept me, or you can shun me. I don't control which path you take. I can only guide you if you choose to follow me.

If this sounds something like the second coming of Jesus........

Well, that's yours to interpret, my friends.

It's yours. I only offer what I have to give.

You take it or leave it.

I have kitties............
