  •  It's privilege, plain as day. (9+ / 0-)

    It's white privilege, it's US privilege. I mean, look at 9-11. Before that, people had been bombed in their markets and places of worship over and over worldwide. It was a pity, we said, but until it ::gasp:: happened HERE, we paid no notice, we let it slide.
    It also reflects in legislation for the general benefit. Unless someone in a legislator's own family comes down with an underfunded malady, an orphan disease, nothing is done for others with the same problems.
    It's some kind of sick Amer-egocentrism -- not a word, sorry -- where we're in our own private Idahos. If it doesn't happen to us, it doesn't happen. It's so arrogant and selfish.

    I ♥ President Obama. ~ Yes, we did. Again.
    NOW: Hands off SocSec, Medicare and Medicaid. NO Grand Bargain.
    Rich pay a bit more. DoD take a bit less. End war on Afghanistan sooner.
