What Happened to Truth, Justice and the American Way?

“Even wearing two pairs of glasses I can’t find the Truth ”
“Before the world of truth can come, the world of lies must disappear” – Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Kook
And if one is a believer then one believes that He doesn’t like that. In fact, He gets really, really angry and has made cities and even countries disappear. So, based on Jewish history, we should be shaking in our boots (or here in S. Fl ,flip -flops.)
When I was a little girl I used to watch Superman on our black and white TV every afternoon. The opening line, ” It’s a bird. it’s a plane- no, it’s Superman- fighting for truth, justice, and the American Way. This was what all of us, whether here or living in the hell hole of a Communist country believed. America stood for principles and virtue. Somewhere in our history that all changed. People can point to Watergate- but I disagree.Today we are inundated with lies and corruption and we’re so used to it we don’t even blink.

All we have to do is look as the Obamacare Supreme court debacle. Citizens were told over and over again that it wasn’t a tax. In fact, we were told that there would be no new taxes on the middle class. So what does John Roberts do? He bases his decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare on the fact that it’s a TAX. But, it’s much more than that.

How about our attorney general Mr Eric Holder? He has wrung every ounce of integrity out of this justice system. To those of us paying attention, we are appalled at how corrupt and insincere our attorney general actually is. We, as citizens, are supposed to accept his sly alibis and legal acrobatics with shrugs and move on to the next problem in the news cycle.
The only way we can turn this around. and it doesn’t matter what religion one is, one has to understand that there is an ABSOLUTE greater than government. Fires in the west, draught in a big part of the country, massive heatwaves and loss of electricity for weeks are signs that something is terribly wrong. If the past is any indication of the future I would say it’s time for repentance and obedience to Ha Shem. We’ve seen this movie before and it doesn’t turn out good. Maybe we should get back to the slogan Truth, justice and the American Way.

About Pamela

I have been around the block more than a few times and I see the streets getting dirtier and dirtier. I left the country in 1973 and moved to Israel. There, I became a founding settler of Yamit, and became a victim of the first catastrophic mistake of swapping land for "peace.
