What has happened to us?

What has happened to America? It seems that all or most of the problems we have are caused by a lack of one or all of the labels below. It seems to be true what I heard from my parents years ago; 90% of work is done by 10% of our work force! No where is this more evident then in the automobile industry! I have heard and seen of workers taking items, and even almost building vehicles from parts that have been gotten but not paid for! To many people have the opinion that "if no one finds out it is OK"!! Now I know this happens in other industries but I am just speaking here by what I know first hand! When did it become the norm in this country to NOT do what is right, just what makes us money or some other gain?? Why is it that when we meet someone with good morals or integrity, we think is so unusual? From stealing pens at the office to stealing parts or tools at the plant to taking anything that does not belong to us; this now is the way allot of society operates!! I would think after the huge things that have happened with the economic system that people would change, that is truly my hope!!

Mosque at 9/11 site

Everyone else is airing their opinion, so I will too!! It is very insensitive to build on the site of the worse tragady of the decade! Particulary by the people that were responsibile for the deaths of over three thousand Americans! Islam means submission and thats just what the greedy contrators and even the president are doing...Submitting!!!

Nature- lovely, people- NOT SO MUCH!

Last week I spent a week on Lake Michigan. I was about 7 miles from Mackinaw city so I was out of the hustle and bustle of tourists. While the beach and the lake were beautiful, as soon as I went to anywhere near a group of people, trash started showing up!! Even at Wilderness state park on lake Michigan, campers do not respect nature. On the public beaches it is very sad to see how some people disrespect the land! When I go to Metro beach, it is one thing to see trash, but quite unexpected to see this on Lake Michigan!
