Americans are losing touch with themselves. Many of us are numbed by mindless television, medicated on brain altering pharmaceuticals, and eat what could hardly be called food. It’s time to help each other wake up. Last night’s shooting in Oregon was a tragedy, not due to a lack of gun control, but rather because we are all being poisoned. As we are being poisoned, our domestic police force is slowly being turned into a military operation. Remember Iraq? Or Afghanistan? Unfortunately, it’s coming home. Look at the “police” patrolling after the shooting in the photo below—case in point.
The vulnerability we all experience after tragedies always seems to be used for gain—but for who? Certainly not US citizens. With each tragedy we lose more of our Constitutional rights, adding insult to injury.
