Leaving America

 Leaving America 
             So you don't like it here?
     I think I've found a way to satisfy the people in America          that are never happy and can never quit complaining about               how bad things are in this country.  Let them go to the 
country of their choice freely, where they can do all the 
different things they loved doing here so much. 
    They can go out in public and shout their distaste and 
hatred for the country they are in. Let them block the entrances
and doors to stores and restaurants and public events, shoving and
harassing the innocent patrons and their families, keeping them 
from enjoying a day or evening out safely.  
     Let them demand a government card for gas, food, and all the 
free contraban they can gather by using the card illegally.
Let them spit on that countrys flag, let them burn it and stomp on
it (just like they do in America). And let them spit in the face
of the police officer that is on the street trying to keep
them from hurting innocent people, (just like they do here in
America). 
     Let them riot and burn and loot the stores of all the hard
working local merchants that serve their community each and 
every day (just like they do here in America). Let them smash 
and burn police cars and ambulances enroute to life saving emergency
calls (yes, just like they do here in America).
     And finally, let them pretend that they are discriminated
against and that their lives do matter more than others, just like 
they do here in America.
