We say that technology is ruining our children’s attention span and giving them ADD.
What about the rest of us? Is it possible that society, at large, has ADD?
These subjects come up, everyone gets worked up, and a week later, we are on to something else.
Meanwhile, all this time, 50% of all the taxes you pay are going to private contractors to fund wars that we’ve been fighting for 15 years, with no end in sight, no master plan, no actual goals. People are getting rich on your dollar, your dollars that are funding murders of innocent people overseas, dollars that are funding the murders of our boys overseas. Still, nary a word about it on the cable news.
That’s how you beat Americans. You keep on with something until they forget about it and move on to the next thing. War hasn’t been a hot topic since 2003/2004.
Take your meds and wake up.
Call your representative every day until he moves to get us out of these wars.
I send letters once a week to all my representatives and Senators. It hasn’t amounted to anything, but if we all did it, I imagine they’d be forced to listen for fear of losing their job.
Fear of losing their job is the only thing that makes them listen.
And that’s why, at least for now, wars continue. Wars make money for the people that fund their campaigns.
We need to unite, act in unison, and let them know we won’t continue to vote for them each November if they plan on allowing us to stay in these expensive murderous wars.
