BE A COMMUNITY ACTIVIST!on October 31, 2012 at 8:50 am
Greetings from Calico Blackie!
Usually, I write about politics and the seemingly insurmountable problems faced by the citizens of the world of today.
But this isn’t the immediate time to worry about politics.
This is a time to worry about ourselves and a time to help one another in their time of need.
I read comments after an article regarding Hurricane Sandy and, while most of them were supportive of the victims, you still saw the occasional idiot who claimed: “This wasn’t bad. What are those people crying about?”
All I can say is: What dicks!
I’ll bet they would think it was a HORRIBLE tragedy if they had lost THEIR home, THEIR POSSESSIONS, THEIR family members, or THEIR legs in a terrible storm.
Those are the same jackasses that sit complacently in their homes and hear about the poor, the homeless, the hopeless, our loss of our Constitutional rights, and the various everyday tragedies going on around them and don’t give a damn as long as it isn’t happening to them.
When something does happen to them, they’ll cry the loudest and look for a place on which to lay the blame.
They’ll want help.
They’ll want sympathy.
I’ve heard that Romney has said he would like to privatize FEMA and leave emergency services up to each individual State.
Think about it.
Would you like to see Halliburton come into YOUR area when a disaster strikes YOUR community?
Or, for that matter, would you like to see ANY private firm come in that will be tasked to assist YOU AND YOUR FAMILY as cheaply as possible in order to keep their profit margin up?
But, oh no.
We can’t have a government agency dedicated to helping the people in times of emergency.
It’s pouring rain outside here today out west. We’re subject to floods, wildfires, earthquakes, and even a volcano (Mt. Shasta), so it pays to never get smug and complacent about anything in our lives.
It also pays to never become complacent about the suffering of others. When you do that, you’re only hurting yourself. Let’s help our neighbors.
Be an activist in your community.
Lend a hand.
OCCUPY WALL STREET
OCCUPY ALL STREETS
They’re our streets.
