When I was a child, I was taught not to run out into the street because I could get hit by a car or truck. Twenty years later, I taught my son not to run out into the street because he could get hit by a car or truck. So what I need to know is when did it become ok to walk out in front of a moving vehicle? If I’m not mistaken pedestrians do not have the right away unless they are crossing at a crosswalk with the light. But for some reason, all kinds of people believe that it is ok to walk in front of a moving vehicle. They look at you like they are daring you to hit them.
And when did it become okay to set fire to a restaurant’s Christmas tree because you had to wait longer than you wanted for your check? I mean COME ON, REALLY????? Was that really necessary?Man Sets Fire to Denny's Christmas Tree, Causes $150K of Damage
When did it become okay to shoot people just because they piss you off? I read this article about all the gun violence since Sandy Hook. U.S. Shooting Deaths Since Sandy Hook Top 100
Now, it’s easy to believe that this violence happened but why did it happen? When did it become ok to pick up a gun and kill people you don’t like or agree with? When did it become to pull off the side of the road and shoot someone because they cut you off in traffic?
I have to pause and ask myself….”If there had been 20 6 year old kids killed in INDIVIDUAL EVENTS on the same day/date, would it even had been noticed?
When did America become an armed camp? If you listen to the NRA’s strategy, which represents a large percentage of Americans, every adult in America should be armed. Our schools, churches, shopping malls, homes should all be heavily armed for protection. Of course all these gun sales and ammo sales certainly make for great corporate profit taking. Hmmm, what was that saying…...”The Love of Money is the root of all evil”????
I laugh at the notion of arming the head of the NRA and putting him in the middle of a gang related neighborhood in somewhere likes Los Angeles. Now there is an idea for a video game….NRA versus REALITY. I’m quite certain it would be a big hit.
When did watching violence on TV become the problem? I’ve probably seen over 1 billion acts of murder on television in my lifetime. After all, I was the first generation raised on television. I don’t go out and kill people.
When did it become okay to blame other people for your mistakes? I always hear other people especially politicians talk about taking responsibility for your own life, your own actions. But those same people/politicians, NEVER EVER TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for their actions. How can any informed citizen have respect for a government that fails to behave in the same manner they demand from their constituency?
I find it extremely ironic that the GOP wants no rules for corporations but lots of rules for individuals.
When did it become OK to do nothing and hurt everyone for your own personal and political gain? Perhaps, it became ok to not compromise even though you know it will cause the very result that you advocate against. Look the tea partiers say they are protecting America when they are really destroying it. And government has become so partisan that neither party will allow its members to cross party lines and work for the good of the country without punishment.
When did it become ok to represent truth as propaganda and propaganda as truth?
