I don't claim to have an answer, and why does the government always have to be it.
What I'm saying is that in a nation such as the USA, to have senior citizens having to chose between food or medication is more than a shame, and for
veterans of our wars, right or wrong, to be homeless, living in their cars, that too is a shame, a shame on us all. This is america for petes sake,
te 21st. century. the 21st. Century. In the USA!
You don't see anything absurdly wrong with this?
I don't have the answer dude, never professed to, but it makes each and every one of us appear so self absorbed that we should feel shame for it, but
as americans, we have no shame.
Situations like the ones I list above are not unusual nor far fetched, this junk happens all the time.
We, as americans, as AMERICANS, in the 21st. century, should never allow for things like that to happen, and if it does, we should all have an
interest in making sure that is doesn't happen again.
But we don't. we don't care, as long as we have our x-boxes, our i-pods and our pay-per-view.
That is, unless it's YOUR grandparent, YOUR veteran Brother. We hav all let each other down, we have all let ourselves down.
