Re: The Little Girl Killed in Arizona: Your Fault. and Mine
That's an excellent article, I wrote an email for my friends and family after the shootings and pretty much said the same things. I'm a veteran and watching what's been going on in this country since 9/11 has made me sick. Does the Bill of Rights even exist anymore? For years my inbox filled up with jokes, bitches and complaints from people that have done absolutely nothing for this country, and yet speak like they actually know what they are talking about. If you hate something about this country, I guarantee you that there are 100,000's of people that agree with you and are working in a positive and non-divisive way to fix the problem. Instead of sitting behind your computers spreading hate with a click of a button, get off your asses and do something about it.
Our founding fathers demanded that we remain active in our countries success, and yet we allow ourselves and our country's reputation around the world to be tarnished out of shear laziness. From the baby boomer generation forward, there is this entitled attitude that we don't have to do anything for our freedom and that we are the greatest country in the world (voting once every 4 years for a R or a D doesn't count). Well guess what folks, we're not and it's our lazy apathetic attitude as the reason why we're not anymore. If any positive is to come from this tragedy, let it be that the American people wake the F*** up and start taking some responsibility for the state of our union. Next time you want to tell a joke making fun of the right or the left, do me a favor stand up and look in the mirror and ask yourself, "What have I done to make this country better?" If the answer is nothing, just keep your mouth shut. Looking at how many people vote and serve in the military, I'm guessing the political rhetoric would go completely silent. Just think then you might actually have enough time to at least look up some info on the drones you keeping voting into office.
