The Things I Absolutely Hate about the United States

July 16, 2015

“Hate” is such a strong word. Perhaps “greatly dislike” would be more correct, but I don’t think so. I think “hate” is exactly what I mean. There are things that I don’t hate, like specific people and specific ways that some people think. No, the hate I express is for most things related to government and government interference in the United States. I won’t even go so far as to say it’s isolated to the federal government. Each of the 50 states endorse things I will never be a party to unless it’s done without my approval.

The List of Things I Hate

Here is a list of things I hate, in no particular order. I’m writing this list as I think about it. Don’t worry, it shouldn’t be long.

I have Every Right to Hate

I lived in the United States for 45 years of my life (I’m approaching the age of 55). I spent 20 of those years as an active duty United States Marine. I spent another 10 in the Fleet Marine Corps Reserve. The paperwork I received at the 30-year mark says that Congress still owns my ass.

I receive a retirement pension. It isn’t as much as an active duty marine would get, if he retired today, due to the financial wranglings of Congress over the years. By the time I can receive social security payments, it might all even out.

Although I’m an expatriate, I’m still a patriot. If I’m ever called back to serve my country in any capacity, I will do so as long as I am still medically qualified.

This List will Probably be Updated

I’m sure I’ll think of other things I hate. I’ll be sure to add them to the list above as I think of them. I’ll be happy to clarify any particular item if I’m asked to do so.
