This is Part 2 of a re-blog from PamelaGeller.com (formerly Atlas Shrugs). Geller is President & Executive Director of American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and sponsor of the Draw Muhammad Cartoon Contest as well as a staunch supporter of our First Amendment rights. The re-blog below is by AFDI Geller Fellow Nonie Darwish. Darwish by the way, would bring my count of moderate Muslims who do not agree with violent jihad to five, but she is a former Muslim (born in Egypt, and now an American citizen) and a strong critic of Islam. Part 2 follows:
I wish that the American media would recognize the danger of how modern-day Western Feminism is taking women back to bondage; the Islamic head-cover is being romanticized by feminists today, and American schools are encouraging young women to try it.
I wish America would treat its citizens as adults who can deal with the truth, make decisions for themselves and take the consequences.
I wish that American seniors were given back their important role in the lives of their grandchildren; to end Western banishment of seniors to live together alone in some permanent vacation or senior homes where they are told they are no longer needed in the family unit. Different ages have different roles and are needed within any group. I love to see parties mixed of all ages.
I wish that disfranchised African American youth understood how their “lives matter,”: that it is up to them to make their lives matter and no one should ask other human beings to make his or her life matter, especially in America. We are all the children of God, and are all in need to matter to one another, but no one is responsible to make the lives of others matter.
I wish that every American would not graduate from high school or college without basic education in economics and how wealth is created.
I wish that Americans had no drug or alcoholism problems.
I wish Americans understood that health care is not a right, because doctors and nurses cannot be forced to give their services for free. If a human right is tied to the services of others, then it cannot be a right.
I wish that every American teenager would visit a third world country before starting to vote, so he or she would be able to see for himself or herself what works and what does not.
And finally, I wish that our educational system would not shy away from teaching our kids a healthy dose of patriotism.
