A Family Conversation: The Cousins Deal with Sacred Cows

“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog.

“A Family Conversation” is published on Wednesdays.

*******************************************************************

This week, we go IN by delving into Ron’s post, “Sacred Cows make Tastier Hamburgers.”

In his post, Ron offers multiple examples of America’s greatest patriots engaging in healthy critique of their homeland.

Ever hear of George Washington?

How about Abraham Lincoln?

Neither President Washington nor President Lincoln saw our country as infallible and, therefore, exempt from criticism.

Make no mistake, both Presidents, at times, leveled very radical sounding indictments on the country.

In fact, if you didn’t know any better you’d think you were reading the words of a fringe dweller seeking to overthrow the government by any means.

These days, some folks would have us believe that if you criticize America, you are not patriotic.

They say things like, “This is America, love it or leave it!”

First things first, what gives them the right to say that?

Why would folks do that?

Where are folks going to go?

The key point here is that you can disagree with what a country does while continuing to love it.

Just like you do with a spouse, a sibling, parent or child.

This transcends race!

All of us have the right to disagree with, or question our county’s actions, inactions, behaviors and stances.

Now…

A word to the wise, proceed with caution.

This post is NOT for the faint of heart as it is VERY raw and it contains adult language/adult situations. You might get called out if you are aligned with certain factions.

Radio licenses were not free but the fee was very nominal.
