You Don't Know What You've Got 'Til It's Gone

Published:

Last Edited: January 31, 2014, 7:00 am

Sometimes when I think of how the Democrats are intentionally destroying our country, I recall a song from way back when.

I don't know the name, maybe I'll look it up and post it later.

 

But the verse I remember went something like this:

 

Don't it always seem to go

That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone

Pave Paradise and put up a parking lot. 

 

(or something like that)

 

I've also noticed that as the people who hate this country are now at the helm and consolidating their power and have almost achieved total and possibly permanent control, that I find myself appreciating more the little things that remind me of the old days and the way people used to love this country and be proud of it.

This video below is a rendition of the National Anthem that at one time not long ago I would have thought to be irreverent and disrespectful. But now, as age mellows me and I see our freedom and liberty quickly slipping away, I just appreciate the fact that it's sung by young people who just might still love this country as much as I do.

It saddens me to think about the America my grandkids might be inheriting.

Joni Mitchell

Big Yellow Taxi
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel *, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They took all the trees
Put 'em in a tree museum *
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to see 'em

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Hey farmer farmer
Put away that DDT * now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please!

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

By Junius P. Long

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion ... Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book, but you don't have to show ID for the right to vote on who runs the government ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If, in the largest city of the country, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because the government says a 24-ounce sugary drink might make you fat ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hi-jab is only subject to having her neck and head searched because of her religion ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher’s "cute," but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If hard work and success is rewarded with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If the government's plan for getting people back to work is to reward them with 99 weeks of unemployment checks with no requirement to prove they applied for it ....Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more "safe" according to the government ...Then you might live in a country run by idiots.

If you are offended by this article, then I'll bet you voted for the idiots who are running and "ruining" our great country!

I agree sully.
I wish we could fast forward to the elections to see if the country is doomed or will be saved.
God help us.

I too look back at some of the little things that meant a lot before, and realize those little things just don't have the same meaning as they had years ago. Little by little our rights and aspirations being stripped away from us and all the while everyone just stays dormant and does nothing...

Sometimes I wonder if this is a Test from God, Because so many people want him out of the way.
I will put my faith in God and I will pass the word.

If someone has not really lived the American dream they do not know what they are missing. Could be a reason why they are for liberal government.
