The question of the day is Loyalty:
A subject that I know nothing about.

I refused my Eagle Scout badge because of it.
I had run away from my father’s house
I had not spoken to him in three years.
I’m disloyal.

My older brother is a PCP addict.
In a drug induced rage he attacked me.
I will not stand beside him or support him.
I’m disloyal

My oldest sister uses people
She has two children with two men other than her husband.
I will not even talk to her.
I’m disloyal

My youngest sister does not take responsibility for herself or her children
Dumps her kids with family and steals family identity to buy things on credit
I will not take them when ever she wants to get rid of them.
I’m disloyal.

Loyalty is a two way street.
I am loyal to you
You are loyal to me.
We are loyal to each other.

After giving the US Government my soul and my body
I get BS from the US Government
The plausible deniability used by the Government
Do they deserve my loyalty?
