We live in a nation where it is ok to video violence and get paid for it.
We live in a nation where video pornography is being taxed.
We live in a nation where childrens services only act when the child is murdered and they are exposed.
Why is all of this ok?
We live in America, land of the free, home of the brave. However, here we are suffering the longest shutdown in US history, hundreds of thousands of government workers struggling for their next bite to eat, but yet we don’t stand in unison to fight. The brave suddenly become the cowards and the hidden. Where are those loud voices now??
45 is about to declare a national emergency amongst our nation, giving him the ULTIMATE power. Power that only a villain could desire. This will allow him to receive at least 7 billions dollars giving him the opportunity to fund his 5.6 billion dollar wall.
On June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan sent a message to Mikhail Gorbachev saying, and I quote “Mister Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”. It was during this powerful speech that President Reagan said to remove the Berlain wall which divided the city for 26 years. President Reagan powerfully ended his address by saying “Yes, across Europe, this wall will fall. For it cannot withstand faith; it cannot withstand truth. The wall cannot withstand FREEDOM!”
Freedom. That is what our country represents, does it not? But yet we find ourselves incarcerating wrongfully accused people for DECADES or more (people/NYS vs. huwe burton; people/state of Indiana vs. kristine bunch) because it is much easier to set the blame on someone then to make sure the actual guilty party is convicted! Better yet how about the hundreds of thousand of non-custodial parents living in NYS who once had promising careers but because of the 17% attack on their paychecks for each child, not only have their lives been ruined but their sanity taken as well!!
WHY IS THIS OK?? Why is it ok that police officers JUSTIFY the KILLING of young black men with PROMISING FUTURES ACROSS AMERICA!!! WHY IS THIS OK??
Yes I am angry. I am LIVID!! I am livid because this place that I live in, this place that I call home is full of CRAP!!! The contradictions that exist amongst our very own is humiliating. The media controls all of our minds!! We would rather video a woman being savagely raped instead of picking up any type of defense mechanism and SAVING HER LIFE!!! A life that not only was brutally sabatoged by the individual who sexually assaulted her, but also a life that now could possibly end because you, yes YOU, chose to record it, instead of stopping it.
This is not ok. It will never be ok. But this nation we live in, is so consumed by media, entertainment, violence, that we look passed what is ok.
Kudos, America. You have won the greatest nation of the year award.
