Unhappy What language is this?

the underlying is written in English, but the writer's attempt to let us know what happened, is a bit mangled.

It sometimes gets some interesting results. You do sure enough have to proof read.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

For what I understands this text could be from someone of a foreign country, that used a translator to post a note.
I know because sometimes I use them to translate brochures form English to Spanish, but then I need to edit them to show understendable text, otherwise they'll look wrapped similar to the one you posted.
Didn't you noticed that when reading a manual or article of a Chinese product?

I just regrets the things I haven't done.

yeah,

I see a lot of products that are of Chinese origin with the "manuals" written by someone who is obviously not a native English speaking person.

usually they are so bad, I throw the "manual" in the trash

Chinglish. You want to read some poorly translated Chinese to English? View the signs here: https://www.boredpanda.com/funny-chi...slation-fails/ and here too: https://www.boredpanda.com/translation-fails/of other signs that are funny.

My guess? That's a bad keyboard or "swipe keyboard" text message. Swipe keyboards often replace "so" with "do" because of the proximity of those letters.

"Had a bad storm yesterday evening winds were about 25 miles an hour do my big tree in my backyard Mister vehicles did hit the night light little bit. Here to crack and two minutes later both trees collapse home to the ground amazing."

My translation:

"Had a bad storm yesterday evening, winds were about 25 miles an hour, so my big trees in my backyard missed our vehicles. Did hit the night light a little bit. Heard a "crack" and two minutes later both trees collapsed down to the ground. Amazing."
