Save Tibet, Save Darfur, save the freaking whales I read as I drove in the rain soaked streets around Washington DC. Although I noticed many stickers on cars that forced their intentions to save one thing or another I thought, man these people are so deep in the forest they can’t even see the trees.
While deployed, we were all about saving. Saving a country, humanity, lives and democracy and by God we did. Back home we are so worried about saving other “mammals” in some cases we are missing the mark back at home. We have beauty queens getting hammered by the press (not that I really give two shits about the press) because she has more testosterone in her little finger than those have in their whole body that are pointing their fingers at her. By the way she has much more than testosterone including brains and guts and oh by the way she is Miss California, God Bless America! Those ass bags that are giving her hell for believing in what she stands for I’m sure are real brave and their parents I’m sure are real proud of their representation too…not. Hey beauty queen bashers, here is a news flash, I feel the same way as Miss Cali does, now come beat up on me, what not the same? Didn’t think so, cowards.
That’s just it, what are we doing getting so wrapped up about someone’s opinion and what they believe in when our own country is going to hell in a hand basket? Really, you want to utilize the free world press to bash a beauty queen because she doesn’t believe in same sex marriages? Good call, don’t worry about unemployment that is in the shitter or that the democratic party nor republicans know which way is up and all we can do is deplete our own country and give the farm away. I can promise you our enemies are laughing their ass off right now at us. They don’t have to attack us, we are killing ourselves step by step.
Here is an idea, get a backbone, reinforce your beliefs (I could care less what your beliefs are, just have some for a change for the love of God…or perhaps look back at the ones your parents taught you….some call them morals ) and let’s make America what it can be or should I say should be. If you don’t get a backbone, if you don’t give a crap and prioritize your “major” concerns then be ready to be very, very uncomfortable and restricted in everything you do, everything.
Sheep follow, sheep dogs lead. Now is the time for new leaders to stand up and make a difference. How? You know how, do some soul searching, you’ll know. Leaders are eager for times like these because true leaders like to win for what they believe in. So instead of crushing ourselves from within as a country, worrying about saving this or that or some things we don’t even have control over, I say we win and let’s try here at home and save America!
