We Are Just A Selfish Stupid Ass Nation That Deserves What We Get. [View all]

Last edited Fri Apr 26, 2013, 06:16 PM - Edit history (1)

Amazing that an FAA exception law will pass in just 48 hours so Americans won't have to face delays at the air port. Meanwhile people are starving, dying and being inconvenienced in other ways that are even more important shows who we are. There should be outcry and rage to get rid of all of the sequestration.

Meanwhile we have 84 million Americans who have been medically uninsured the last 12 months. Increasing taxes on the rich and corporations should be a done deal yesterday.

ADDENDUM: Where are our priorities? Airport delays and safety are important. But the consequences of the sequestration is important in many important areas as well. We do respond to disaster and tragedy as we should. But we are not responding to the dismantling of our society in important ways. The erosion of the common good on a day to day basis is critical.

We can see disaster and tragedy, but we miss the tragedy of hunger and people dying because of lack of access to health care. Those losses are important and the idea that as long as I am ok I don't care. Because one day it will be me who is suffering.
