Fear Driven Morons
I think its time we sat down and had a little chat. A chat most of you are loath to participate in, but one you must. We have lost our freedoms and with them what it means to be American. The dream has turned into a nightmare for most of us. While the rich just got richer and more powerful. And as we approach 10 years of war, we have to pause and ask ourselves, what happened to the country I was born in? Grew up in? Are we any safer? we sure aren't freer. Remember the rhetoric flowing out of Washington and propagandized in the media, about not letting the terrorists win, by changing our way of life? Yet they needed to pass the patriot act, they needed the ability to wiretap and search without asking the courts for warrants. 9/11 changed us profoundly and turned us into a country of whinny little sissies. You can't go anywhere these days without being seen on camera's because we're afraid of crime. Wiretaps and covert surveillance because we're afraid of terrorism. Just what are you people not afraid of? Muslims, Gay rights, and agnostic free thinkers are what the media tells you to fear. I'm telling you to keep your fears rational, you know things like spiders, tigers, grizzly bears, these are rational things to fear. So the next time Bill O'reilly or Rush Limbaugh tells you how afraid you should be, tell them to grab a Binky and hide in their closets. Freedoms comes with a healthy dose of risk and responsibility and if they can't man up and assume those, they can always move to China, but what they can't do is bring China here.
