In this section, you will discover my rants. I rant on about politics, apathy, and a great many other subjects as you will discover.
I have this burning curiosity. Why do so many people chose not to vote? What percentage of voting age Americans are going to vote?
Now this is a totally bogus poll. Afterall, I am having to take it on faith that none of my visitors from foriegn countries, will take part in this survey ( I would love to hear what you think about this question though, so feel free to leave a comment). It is not being run scientific at all. But my curiosity is burning …
There is the “Buffet Rule”, the Ryan Tax plan, flat tax proposal and 739 other tax related bills submitted to Congress as of today, April 17th 2012 (the day our taxes are due!) Are our elected officials working for us or taking too many vacations?
So, let me start this rant – and yes, it is a rant – by saying that I am very biased on this subject. My bias is caused by the fact that one of my close family members is a naturalized citizen. She came into this country legally, studied for her citizenship and became an American citizen following the process that the government has in place. I admire the fact that America is a melting pot of different cultures, beliefs and nationalities. That is part of what makes America great. However, the large influx of illegal aliens is currently weakening this country.
I wanted to post a very quick update to let everyone know that I have not forgotten about my follow-up. I have become very entangled with the research. There are stats on the FBI’s website that I have downloadeded to look at the violent crime trends for children and I have found much interesting reading about violence and the media.
An apology to the reader
Last night I got incensed about a movie that was just released. Okay, if I am going to be totally unbiased, it wasn’t just the movie. It was the recent school shooting that occurred on February 27th in Chardon, Ohio. It was the teens who have highlighted the news with scenes of murder. Hunger Games just happened to be mentioned many times by my Facebook Friends and I allowed my emotions to overtake my good sense by writing Part I of Children Killing Children.
