Some of us think that just one man alone could radically change a country, if he's powerful enough.
It was an idea of years ago, this great man theory, offered by a Scotsman in the mid-1800s, in the time of idiot kings and dying monarchies. The Scot's name was Thomas Carlyle, and he believed that history could be read in the biographies of great men.

Hey! Everybody has a “smart” phone and some government freebies. They don’t care if the government is corrupt. They don’t want to be “judgmental”.

(fighting tyranny never goes out of style)
I’ve said this for a while, Americans have lost their passion, for anything. We all make comments or listen to talk show hosts who complain and rail against injustices but that’s it. That’s all there is.
No one could have defeated America if they’d overtly attacked so it was done by increments, death by a thousand knives. Now I fear for our country because I don’t know how we can turn it around. We’ve lost the Presidency, Congress, and the media. How can we fight back?

The outrage has not diminished, but people can only maintain that intensity for so long,
The laws have still been broken,
Zer0 is importing diseased kids into the country and is moving them around, sticking them in small communities.
They are in the streets in SanDiago and more is coming
Zer0 has a new outrage every week that he springs on the country
November is coming, America has not forgot.

The problem with this country is too damned many stubborn people who are dumb but think they’re smarter than everyone else. I’ve got some kids that fall into that category.

Obama's approval rating is effectively at 29%, so I don't think people are ignoring this or other seemingly daily outrages at this point. I think they are waiting for November to get here, but we won't know until the elections come around.

I don’t think so. Just a resignation that this big damn federal gub mint is out of freaken control.
This is not the America I grew up loving. This is thug ass Chicago politics at its worst.

And when a free people lose their capacity for outrage, they are susceptible to almost anything.
For decades, much of our popular culture's pursuit has been about pushing the envelope and challenging our definitions of, and capacity, for outrage. We just can't want to stop our selves.
All roads lead somewhere and, as the title of the 1974 Doobie Brothers album said, "What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits".
To all things a cycle and we've just about reached the point where Outrage bites back.

People are scared: We lost ordinary citizens / Tea-Party members here in the SF Valley, following the IRS scandal... They didn't want to become 'targets.' BULLYING WORKS. Right, Rats?

I think the silence is due to the 4th of July recess.
