Right now I feel compelled to write, though really I am at a loss for words. I have just read that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D- Arizona, along with several dozen others, was shot by a lone gunman while meeting with constituents in Tucson. Six people are dead including a federal judge. The man who did it is currently being held in custody.
While the man’s motives are, at this time, still unclear part of me is almost dreading to learn any more details. I really and sincerely hope that this is just some lone nut who thought that he was following instructions from the mother ship. But part of me is thinking that this might be one of those loons who believe in Black Helicopters and that Obama is a Kenyan Muslim Socialist infiltrator out to destroy America for kicks. It seems as though he is the former though due to the fact that his posting on YouTube seem to be about as coherent as a David Lynch movie, but sadly this does not change a very ugly truth. The political discourse in this country has been becoming more a toxic each and every day. The other side is not only wrong, but an evil that must be purged by any means necessary. And, while no one shall ever admit it, there are some who just will not accept that fact that we have a black president. This country is slowly but sure tearing itself apart. I am afraid of where we are heading.
