Say It Isn’t So!! Please!!!

20 Jul

About the time that I was born an important American icon was presented to the United States for the first time.  It took me a few years to become a loyal follower of this man, only because it took me a while to be able to read.

Then he jumped from the colorful pages into the world of radio, then eventually into TV and movies.  Throughout the years his actions put forth a call to all of us that right is right; and right will always win in the end.

He came to us in the form of two individuals: a mild mannered reporter and the super hero he became.  Some thought his standing for good against evil all the time was boring.  So they strayed off the path of righteousness.  Others let his values sink in and by so doing we inherited a stick by which we could measure the merit of our own deeds.  But no matter where one stood on the issue of his moral excellence, there was never any doubt that he was an American through and through.

I’m speaking of course of the man of steel, Superman.  You know the faster than a speeding bullet guy.  The one that can jump buildings in a single bound.

Now the word I hear is that this hero of mine is about to renounce his U.S. citizenship.  That’s right!!  The 900th issue of Action Comics is reported to state that Superman is going to the United Nations to proclaim that he is “tired of having my actions construed as instruments of U.S. policy.”

Have they gone mad?  Are they teaming up with the Joker (oops, wrong foe), or Lex Luther to undermine his credibility?  Or is it that they have morphed into some lillie-livered, PC emitting, sad-sack, know it all, elite bag of blithering idiots?  Words escape me (oh how I wish I could come up with derisive words like the liberals use when describing Republicans).

At times like this, I find it hard to worry about what will happen to the United States should we default on our debts.  Or even the damage that President Obama’s policies are doing to our great nation.  How can such trivial issues such as these outweigh the impact of seeing Superman succumb to the drivel emanating from the pages of our newspapers, mainstream media, liberal news networks, and yes, regrettably even Action Comics?

All I can say is: Say it isn’t so!!
