Who in the world can focus on all that is happening here in the states, especially the southern ones. Let's look at what is happening or about to happen in push back.
We have Perry wanting a high noon standoff on reproductive rights and angry people pushing back justifiably. We then have the Stand your Ground law in Florida with racism flying in the face of people of color. There will be trouble either way regarding the outcome. We have North Carolina and people in the streets. We have all of the gerrymandering there. We have the immigration bill that is probably not going to happen in the house.
We have espionage and leaking of the NSA slamming the 4th amendment. We have the gun lobbyists and the anti gun people pushing each other.
We have wars and backlogs in claims for veteran benefits. We have new info on cyberspying in Iran. We have the supreme court acting bi polar and making DOMA illegal but taking away the crucial part of the Voting Rights Act. The whole thing is about civil rights...Almost every major event is about freedom and civil rights.
Governors now including Christie choosing not to expand medicaid exchange. The money is tight on top of sequester. We have climate change and temperatures in the 130's on top of high tempers at peak levels. The dam is breaking and no one can stay on top of one story before another one breaks. We have not even had a big hurricane yet and that too will be another focus.
Is it me and my age or is there too much happening so fast that we are unable to stay current on how out of control this country is? The religious right is all riled up on the DOMA decision and people are now totally pitted against one another.
Every day is an uphill battle fighting the real evil doers... The policy makers sporting their fascism and flying it in the face of progressive and Americans who want to hold on to basic democracy.
I have to attend a reunion and will check back later if I miss some of the comments but please do comment as I feel like a ball of confusion.
