I hope my title at least piqued some curiousity. I
've heard and heard about how our grandparents won WWII and made the world safe..... for what? Justice Roberts spoke an unpleasant truth when he said it's not the Supreme Court's job to save us from poor choices,(or something to that effect). Our chickens really are coming home to roost. How many of your neighbors can tell you who is on "American Idol," or which brainless, talentless movie star is in what rehab, or is going through their latest divorce-du-jour, and has no idea how their Congressional Representative voted last week, or in many cases, even who their Congressman(woman)is? I've heard people castigate Justice Roberts for his vote, and while I deplore it, I realize that this is the bed we made, and are about to have to sleep in. Voter ignorance and apathy got us into our current mess, and now some of us are mad because Justice Roberts, for whatever reason, chose not to bail us out? The current occupant of the White House is not there because Roberts put him there. Nor were Reid and Pelosi somehow magically teleported into the offices they either currently or previously disgraced. WE THE PEOPLE did it, and WE THE PEOPLE have to correct it. Get mad, get motivated and stay that way. There are more of us than there are of them, but it doesn't matter if we stay home. Will we be like Esau in the Bible, and give away our birthright our ancestors fought and sacrificed and died for, for a bowl of beans? Because we have more important things to do than vote? Politicians are our employees, not vice-versa. Unfortunately, many of our employees are apparently in need of constant adult supervision.
