Memo to City Mouse (9_9)*

By Margaret Curtis, PhD

Regarding Obama’s appraisal of small-town Americans as follows:

“It’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Thank you for your charitable characterization of small-town America. These words reveal respect for the First Amendment, promising freedom of religion, of course. (9_9) May we assume that Christianity was on your list of religions covered by that document—or did you never teach Constitutional Law in the city?

Did your course also cover the Second Amendment? It promises the right to bear arms, of course.  In the country, snakes are common.  Are you going to run to our aid when that rattler’s alarm goes off, ten feet from our children? Or maybe you spend your many vacations golfing, (9_9) instead of hunting, which we do to provide food for our families, too?

Do you really believe that ONLY small-town Americans object to your bigotry? (9_9) That we are the ONLY ones who object to your administration’s policies, including your refusal to defend the sovereignty of the US by closing its borders to invasions? Did you study the principle of SOVEREIGNTY in your legal courses?

We have visited the city, by the way. We CHOOSE to live in small-town America. Here, we endure close to God’s green earth, instead of empty warehouses, unemployment lines which reach around blocks, and crime rates which you have done nothing to lower. Don’t lecture us on being Americans. Study your law books. Then get back to us.
