As recent events in Sanford Florida have unfolded, it is very clear that racism is alive, well and growing in our country. I’m not going to waste your time retelling the story of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. Martin is dead and Zimmerman pulled the trigger. While that’s sad and a tragedy, the happenings afterward are just as much a tragedy, that will likely cause many unneeded deaths in the future. The Corporate Whore Liberal Media has once and for all, failed the American people. They have proven that they do not represent the “press” as was intended when the Bill of Rights to the Constitution were written. Today, they represent the worst of the corporate world, misrepresenting the truth for profit, at the expense of innocent Americans. This should concern all Americans, regardless of political leanings or skin color. If you don’t believe you can safely walk anywhere you choose in this country without being in danger, welcome to Battlefield Amerika!
As a proud USAF veteran, I can say that when I was a young man, I believed I was working for the American people and doing my part to ensure freedom for future generations, including my children and other family members. More and more, I’m feeling robbed of everyday freedoms, spied on by an overbearing elite class who care not for me and those like me, but only for their bank accounts and powerful positions in society. I’m not one who hates Capitalism or the 1%, whoever they are, nor am I against the 99%, but rather, I wonder why we can’t all just get along and work together peacefully.
I would like to know if anyone believes they can walk, in any neighborhood, at anytime of day or night, and have no fear for your safety. I live in the country, far from anything bigger than a small burg with little more than a store or two. I feel quite safe from the human threat (still have to worry about loose dogs and other furry critters, LOL). Once I must leave and hit the stores for groceries and other items, in more populated areas, I legally carry a sidearm. Despite my license to carry concealed, I would not go into many neighborhoods in our larger cities, and that is a shame.
Our society is breaking down. Gas prices, food prices and overall energy prices are going to hit people hard, especially in the inner cities and poorest communities. I hope people are ready for more crime and even more government control. Last year we saw the Arab Spring, this year, we could see the European summer followed by the American Fall! Prepare for war, you may not have a choice. You are living on Battlefield Amerika.
