Someone please explain to me why we have turned into a nation of whiners, spoiled brats, bigots, racists, misogynists, greed monsters, morons and haters in the last 10 – 20 years?
I have watched this regression for the last 10 years and wondered. I’ve even lost sleep over the question. I realize some of it started in the ’80’s when money was king……but shouldn’t we be back to reality by now?
Is it because we elected a black president? Nope, started way before he was elected. Just remember, he was elected by a majority of the people…….twice.
Is it because this has been dormant in our society and people are now just getting the guts up to say it out loud? Maybe, but I doubt it.
Is it because the media and the politicians are so anti-everything, showing hate, ignorance and intolerance every chance they get? Quite possibly and most likely.
It seems like the whiners, haters, bigots and trouble makers all have the spotlight, these days, instead of being ignored as they should be. Social media and news media don’t report facts, they report opinions and blatant sensationalism. Want 15 minutes of fame? Do or say something so incredibly moronic and watch people jump while you get your face and ignorance plastered all over every form of media.
The people who are still capable of independent thought….i.e. those who don’t follow, and adore, fox news (and I use the term “news” very loosely) or live and die by social media are the ones who the so-called “liberal” media is calling “liberal” as if it was a dirty word. The media is praising people for not doing their jobs, praising them for killing innocent unarmed men, women and children; praising them for making a ruckus about a cup; praising those who think there’s a war on Christmas, Christians and any other bogus thing they can come up with.
Where has common sense gone? Where has ignoring these fools gone? Where has putting people in jail for murder gone? Where has the good of the people gone? Where has helping your fellow man gone? Where has raising our children to be respectful and not hurt others gone?
Why are boys being raised to believe they can do anything they want to anyone and get away with it? Why are men thinking that they can control women by limiting their healthcare and the way they dress? Why are people treating the homeless like animals instead of people? Why are people hating other people for the color of their skin or for their beliefs?
What has led this once great country to this?
Yes, I said once great.
As long as we treat some people like second class citizens, take away the right to vote from some people, dictate who can and cannot have healthcare, refuse to help those in need of saving, we are no longer the great leader of the world as we once were.
We have become pathetic as a nation. Intolerant. Childish. Racist. Hate-filled. War mongering. Greedy. Whining. Spoiled Brats.
Those who try to lift us out of this patheticism are ridiculed. Truth is belittled and rewritten by Christian Jihadists. Facts are ignored for sensationalism. People scream for war but don’t want to pay the price when it’s over.
In short, we have lost our empathy for our fellow man. We have let hate into our every day lives. Fear of everything is now rampant.
AND IT NEEDS TO STOP. NOW.
