I'm afraid, more terrorist attacks are inevidable, regardless of who is President...Bush being re-elected serves no more threat then if Kerry were.
These people (the terrorists)are insane...and want our country...want our freedom to rule in their own way, it's what they know, what they've been taught to believe and trust, they know nothing else.
Unfortunately, most people do not get it, or ignore it...ohhhh if we only knew what is already going on right here in our own coutry, if we'd only open our eyes, and become involved....if only we wouldn't think, It won't happen to us. It will!
If only our society would demand more astute laws....reform our social policies that have been left adrift....
I fear for all of us....not only because of Bush, but because of us
We have not progressed as a society, but have regressed...we've become very lazy and uninvolved...more concerned about the material rather then whats really important
rules and regulations mean nothing....we back our parties even when they're wrong...we're to proud to stand up and shout, hey, this is unacceptable behavior.
Our laws are corroding, along with American businesses....institutions, consideration for rules...which should apply to EVERYONE, no matter who you are or what position you own.
Remember the old cliche Welfare breeds welfare....welp, so does lack of confidence...greed, immoral insights and perspectives....feeling like we deserve it?
Judge a countries society by it's homelessness, infostructure, beliefs...concepts...what they deem at entertainment. We laugh and joke about what we should deem immoral and courrupt, and we fuel gossip and force our opinions and beliefs down everyone else's throats....we're a mess, and this is a great time to attack...we're not ready...we should have taken all those forces we sent over to Iraq and shurred up our holes...
We should be much further along....
We've become a nation of material need, we're forgetting moral obligation to others, concern for others...working together as a team to serve a good fit in public awareness, teaching our children manners and consequence for their actions.
We believe everything we read, the media, we assume, just as they do, without getting the facts...and we bash each other, backing up our arguments with the publishings of others.... and we need, we need, we need this and that? Gosh, if a catastrophic attack ever occured, we wouldn't know how to survive, cuz we no longer get our hands dirty, we rely on electric heat, malls 3 miles away, we've lost those old fashioned ways of survival, doing without, improvising?
Maturity, moral obligation to others, courtesy are slowly becoming prehistorically extinct.
Oh, it isn't hopeless, and it may take another hit or two (terrorist attack) before people get smart and start screaming, SEAL OFF OUR BOARDERS and fight the terrorists who are right here right now.
They're waiting, patiently...and our government knows they're here?
It's sad, but it will take a catastrophe to wake people up....and besides, we're also a society who doen't think to ask questions....instead we bash and blame....we lack common sense and education...education to become strong again....and the money mongers like us this way. They love our divided country....
We're experiencing the same things that happened years and years ago, only difference is more people, less ethic....we thrive on gossip, money and what's in it for us. We allow our TV's, movies and newspapers to control not only our thinking, but the way we should think....and we're being sucked up into it....
sorry folks, I'll remain an eternal optomistic
praying that President Bush wakes up to, and changes this mess, we've all gotten ourselves into...he can't do it alone, no one can, cause he's a puppet to, in some respects....and until the people stand up side by side, together, and forget about controlling peoples beliefs....???? Sigh???
There are a lot of good people out there
who are like children, afraid to fight for whats right, it's peer pressure, people are afraid to stand up for fear of being banned from society or family, or their jobs. So, we keep quiet...but deep down inside, we all know what's really going on, don't we?
And this hype about not owning the 10 commandments....has nothing to do with religion, but a great deal to do with organized conduct towards each other...without it, we're dead...in more ways then one....
I really do miss the old Religious Christmas Carols, I miss the caroling and the privilege of calling it Christmas....I miss knowing who my neighbors are, baking cakes when new neighbors move in....I miss it when no one comes to help shovel snow, and the guy across the street owns a snow blower.
When my foster dad was alive, he shoveled both sides of the streets, with the other husbands....I miss hearing kids reciting the Lord's Prayer...jeeze louise, at least that gave our children something to believe in?
A role model so to speak?
OH well, down off my soap box I go...forgive me for being so long winded...
I don't believe things are hopeless, just a little out of joint is all.
