Do you see my point?
I agree that my example was terrible.
But people are blowing this off.
I was not impressed by the MA Governor’s speech tonight nor that of the FBI agent. I saw liberalism written all over their face. They need to be held accountable. It’s hard to do that if we’re laughing at the terrorist attack and making hanging limb jokes. That’s probably some kid’s dad and I would assume that kid’s probably experiencing a late night in the hospital was we speak (and as you joke)
The last thing we want to see is these liberals Benghazisize the Boston terrorist attack. They should have been prepared.
Everything we love in this country has been blown off by our supposed leaders for some time now. It’s terrible to be cynical, but I think it’s a natural reaction to being told that nothing matters, nothing sticks as if it is worth fighting for. A person can’t have outrage unless they believe in something, and we’ve had every cynical game in the books played on us. I think the feeling people are having is that if even life itself is just something to exploit for a political agenda, then count us out. Politicians and media, if you’re going to take us for a ride if we show we care, then we’ll just stare ahead and not make contact with you slimy carnival peddlers prostituting everything we love.
I don’t know the answers. I don’t like any of the options.
As much as I felt for the grieving families, I just didn’t want to even think about Sandy Hook because I knew it was being exploited for politics. And it’s hard to view ANYTHING differently than that, because the media people who are setting the narratives and doing the supposed reporting are all trying to take us fools for a ride. I think we don’t trust them and instinctively withdraw our emotions from their agenda.
It sounds cold. I don’t know what other response makes sense when there just isn’t anybody who deserves our trust.
I’m not going to joke. I just feel an empty spot in the pit of my stomach. But I want to be with others who “get it”, who understand how tired I am of having life and liberty deliberately trampled under by the foreign enemy combatant in our White House who then expects us to shed tears and jump on board his bandwagon so he can tear down even what’s left. They’ve told us this country is not our business, and I’m really tempted to say Boston is their problem; it’s not our business; any of the things that could have been done to make things safer have been shouted out by us for so long and we were told to shut up. It’s their bed, now let them lie in it. Just stay away from me and the people I love. Let us protect ourselves and just leave us alone.
Like I said, not something to feel good about, but it is what it is. And it’s all anybody will be capable of if the politicians and media throw away everything of value while telling us all to go to hell. You can’t muster up feelings when you’ve been forced to give up everything that matters.
I can’t even earn a wage without being forced to help subsidize somebody like that baby butcher Kermit what’s-=his-name. And they want me to be outraged over the senseless loss of life in this attack? I think if I was with the people I would feel for their pain. But when all I have is the media that lies with every breath, I don’t think I can do it. Or at least it’s a struggle.
I think we’re numb. Don’t want to laugh, and have forgotten how to cry.
