that seven year old school kid chewed his Pop Tart into the shape of a gun (I thought it looked more like the state of Massachusetts.) and was suspended from school? We were irate. We wrote blog posts condemning the school officials who were being politically correct stupid. But then we forgot about it.
There were some high school kids in Virginia who were suspended for wearing clothing that depicted the Confederate flag. We were mad about that, too. And then we forgot about it.
How about the little girl who was standing, spread-eagled, crying while a TSA agent touched her where her Momma had told her nobody was supposed to touch her. Or the Granny in a wheelchair being humiliated by another agent digging around in her Depends, looking for a bomb. Those incidents upset us and then we forgot about it.
We were irate when we realized that every word we say during a phone call or every email we send or every word we type is all saved to be used against us if somebody with power decides to do so. And it got worse when we found out about the huge facility being built in Utah to store all that data. Guess what. It is still happening - in spades.
Then there is the Black Lives Matter gang. You know - the ones whose organization is based totally on untruth. The same ones who like to march and scream, "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now." Or..."Pigs in a blanket. Fry 'em like bacon." Yeah. Them. Same ones whose leaders were invited to the White House not too long ago.
And then there is the presidential candidate who wouldn't know the truth if it bit her in the butt. The one whose arrogance and quest for power has gotten people killed. The same one who does whatever she pleases and continues along without any consequences whatsoever. That one.
What I want to know is this: How much more are we as citizens expected to take.
And when will it be enough.
