I know that there is an upcoming election and every party is vieing for control of both congress and the senate, but do we really have to be so damn hateful and mean to each other? I have yet to see one single political ad that states what the candidate wants to do for the country, they are all filled with accusations of what the other one did or didn't do. No one is willing to stand up and take responsibility for their actions for it is easier to just throw the blame on someone else.
Now I know that I have some anger issues and for the most part I think that most people are lazy, incompetent lemmings that seem to follow the newest thing, but have we gone so far as to hate everything. The right hates the left, the left hates the right, Christians hate the Muslims, Americans hate all foreigners, everyone who looks Hispanic is here illegally and should be deported right now, if you are Muslim then you must be a terrorist, if you are a democrat then you must hate this country and be a socialist, if you are republican you must hate everything that is not republican, if you are straight then you must hate everyone who is gay, if you are gay you must hate everyone who isn't gay because they must hate you. Where will it end and why do we do it. America is up in arms about a religious center being built two block away from ground zero in a building that has gone unnoticed and ignored since the attacks. Why is this an issue there are two churches right across from ground zero, oh yeah because the only people who died in the September 11 attacks were christian, right. No it is an outrage because political leaders have chosen to make it an issue and proclaim that it is really a front for the Taliban to gloat over their victory. Give me a fucking break people. Stop acting like sheep being led to the slaughter and believe everything we see or hear on CNN or FOX or MSNBC.
I guess what pisses me off more than anything is that there is so much blatant meanness out there. In KY a gentleman and his family lost their home, their possessions and their pets because he had not paid $75 fee for firefighter service. The fire dept came and watched his house burn to the ground. Really this is right. Here in the Pacific Northwest a 25 year old woman shoved a two year old down in anger because he wet his pants, the child is in critical condition after hitting his head on the pavement. A college student secretly tapes and broadcasts his roommates most intimate time to the world outing him leading to his suicide. Where does it end? We as a generation need to take up the mantel and restore human dignity to our existence. Pay it forward, random acts of kindness, tolerance or just plain humanity. We are not perfect in any way shape or form, but the ability to show compassion to me puts us up one step closer to a higher power (God, Buddah, Mohamed, Jesus, etc..)
Let's all do something to help pull our heads out of our asses and make it a better world for our kids, grand kids, nieces, nephews and ourselves.
