Outrage Over The Outrage?

For years, people in the US and around the world have asked what will it take to get the Americans off the couch and to protest. Every time there was a riot in some far off country, people would ask “Why don't Americans do that?” And now that something has been a motivator, people are upset and outraged?

Bricks thrown through the windows of offices, vandalism of officials' property, threats of violence, death threats, murmurings of armed revolt, posting information of where officials live....the list goes on and on. Even House Minority Leader Boehner told Rep. Driehaus (the representative of an adjoining district) not to go home because he would be a dead man.

So why is it that now that Americans are finally expressing their outrage (although not in a spectacle like a riot) that people are outraged about it? Is this not what you have been asking for? Or is it because you disagree with the impetus for which it is occurring?

Do you really feel that people are only expressing their anger over the Health Care Reform? Do you not think that it was merely the final straw in a long list of abuses over the years? Ignore the media slants to the stories. Ask yourself who is only being partisan, the protestors or the one's decrying them?

The old curses are true: These are interesting times. And we are getting what we wished for.

Now why am I not surprised to see no comment has been made. Truth must hurt. Man, the double standards must be in effect.

I agree that this was the last straw, at least for me, I can't stomach this crap any longer.
have you seen that now our money will be used to buy Viagra to sex offenders?
I started a thread about it...this is out of control!!

Who are these 'people who are outraged' about the alleged outrage ?

I would have chosen to describe the mood as one perhaps of irritation leaning to boredom, resulting in people switching-off

Have you read the site or listened to the talking heads and politicians lately?

Quite the number are saying it is TEA Party Members and radical (Republican) Americans. Members of Congress are contacting the FBI over phone messages and emails.

Bottom line is they are being called out on their actions by a disgruntled public and rather than face it like a man they are playing a crying game and asking for pity parties.
