Only problem is though that we can't just call a time out. This is the real world, and if we aren't the ones setting the bar, others with maybe not the same intent would.
No, you don't sound like a Bitch, but rather an American worried like the rest of us when we see what is happening to our country. It isn't pretty, and will not be easy. I too struggle with the terms of being the most prosperous nation on earth, and with that comes not only the good things like our cushy standard of living, but responsibility in the larger picture. I think we can all agree that we would love to see nothing but rainbows, and candy chocolate streams, in a world without war, and the ugliness that is inherent in mankind, but we really need to live in reality now so more than ever.People fighting, killing and blowing each other up in other places is not really on my top of the list radar screen since we have so many problems right here. I sound like a bitch but would rather our focus be making sure no kids go hungry, get killed by gangsters, etc. than worrying about someone that could give a crap less about us and wishes us death to worry about it.
Again, you can't just call time out. But the so called 'War on Poverty' has been a colossal failure, what makes you believe that dumping more money into it would be any different?Spend money here, get our homeland straight and then maybe try to save the rest of the world. Those that hate us should be the LAST on our to do list. JMO
