Thank you Unity_99!!! I don't post often, especially not to start a thread lol, but there are rare occassions when a topic makes me feel; really
FEEL and those I will respond to or even start a thread!!
What gets me is the fact that only two other people even had anything to say about this situation!! I'm not even upset with their positions on the
topic really (disappointed? Certainly!!), but just the fact that there were only TWO other people besides us who FELT enough about the topic to
respond! Are we seriously that far gone as a species?! I am not looking for stars or flags or accolades on any level, but I expected this topic to
rouse emotion among my fellow human beings! More and more often as of late mankind has simply been disappointing *sigh*!!
I feel an increasing frustration as I watch us decline, rapidly, into an abyss there are no words for! How have we allowed ourselves to get to this
point? My OP is about a blatantly obvious stripping of basic human rights and that should piss us all off!! We should be filled with righteous anger
and join by their sides to protest the injustice of it all! And not just in this situation, ALL situations where our human brother's and sister's
are having their rights stripped away by TPTB! Our numbers are great, we are many and could (notice I said could not are :-() be a "force to be
reckoned with"! The amount of change we would see around the world would be astounding, but instead we choose to live in fear and complacency with a
"don't rock the boat" mentality AND IT MAKES ME ANGRY DAMMIT!!
Why aren't we, the collective, angry?! What are we so afraid of?!
I have long been of the belief that people are fundamentally good, that we are all capable of love and compassion, in fact I ruled my life by that
belief! I no longer feel that way and that makes me angrier than anything else, so angry in fact that I am becoming jaded and it effects my daily
life, even the way I'm raising my children!!! I don't want to be this way, think this way, feel this way.... but what other way is there at this
point? There is true strength in numbers, but where are the numbers, where are the masses, where are those that want to be the change they wish to
see? I'll tell you where; at home watching TV, at the store buying something "better" than their neighbor's things and making sure to not rock the
perverbial boat while the rest of the world pays the price!
Now I have successfully derailed my own topic, but I guess that's my perogative, especially given the fact that no one's even paying attention to it
lol! Maybe now the thread should be moved over to "Rant" haha!?!
