I've still got some smart friends though....
"Now who the hell do I vote for?"
"10 years, 2 wars, 919,967 deaths, and $1,188,263,000,000 (interest and inflation not included) later, they managed to kill one person. Worth it?"
"Just a puppet folks."

The whole thing makes me sick. Not only are they celebrating the death of someone they honestly know nothing about outside of what the TV tells them, but they're bringing out their 4th of July patriotism that appears once or twice a year. Only a few of them have actually lost things (like loved ones) to this "War on Terror". Most of them sit behind their computers and act like they've given up things because of bin Laden, when the truth of the matter is, the closest they will ever come to knowing about what this man is accused of is what the TV shows them.
I have a few friends that seem to get it, though. One even made a joke about how it sure is hard to survive dialysis in a cave for several years. Another brought up that we shouldn't become complacent with our faux-freedom. I guess there is some hope out there.
