I know I spend an inordinate amount of time reading online posts and comments. I do it for a reason. It's hard to put into words why I do it, but I'll try.
I can't help but notice that with all the trolls and bots out there trying to stir up hatred and divisiveness, people buy into their crap. By that I mean that for every post for or against something, someone always has a mean or degrading comment to counteract the post.
Suffice to say, all of this is getting us nowhere. The foul language, the nasty comebacks, all the degrading comments are doing nothing but feeding into people's perceived opinions of our situation. You're being baited, and biting like a fish to a worm. There is no civility left in our society, because people are afraid, and they have every right to be so! Our system of government has reached the breaking point. I usually do not give in to fear, however my greatest fear is that we are past the tipping point with this administration. They are thieves and liars, getting as much as they can while they can, thinking that they will be on top when the shit hits the fan, not realizing that they will be the targets.
We now are back on the gun debate, after the slaughter of 17 more innocents. It will not change! The NRA and it's 5 million members (mostly white supremacists) is another proud owner of our politicians. They will not allow you to "take their guns".
I go back to 9/11. The ease with which 19 men and a couple million dollars crippled our country and changed all for the worse is a prime example of where we are today. All they did was fly 3 airplanes into buildings and the Americans gave up most rights to their privacy, costing us trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of innocent lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Russians played upon our distrust of one another to overtake our government, with a few million dollars and the internet, without firing a single shot. They didn't need more weaponry, they changed peoples opinions of one another and took over an entire country. The money people are all behind this, financing both sides in a never ending war. And we are paying the price! It's called PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE! Not terrorism, not war, but psychological war, and you are falling for it!
Stop buying into this crap! Use what brain you may have to stop the anger and hatred of one another. Stop the foul language towards your fellow Americans and stop listening to the trolls. They're eating you for breakfast!
