Wow! A blue critter in nature.
Think of how many critters that you know are blue.........times up! Not many other than birds.
Blue cows? Blue pigs? Blue elephants? Nope! A rare critter indeed.
Rare also is the concern for the goings on in Iraq right now.
I have been attempting to figure out why the average Joe just plain does not give a shit.
We in the US live in an isolated world separate from the rest of the world. A land of plenty and room to move around where ever we please if we can afford it.
Over the years we have become used to this arrangement and as long as it continues we will continue to believe we have nothing to worry about, nothing can stop us from doing what we want to do when we want to do it, we are self-important and very spoiled.
Look at a spoiled child and how he relates to the world around him. As long as nothing interferes with his existence, he will continue to believe he is the center of his own universe, no matter what occurs outside his narrow view.
We have become like this spoiled child, comfortable, complacent, and indifferent to the happenings of the world. 9/11 thrust us into the world and collective sadness rained down upon us like it did with Pearl Harbor.
What was the first thing we did after 9/11? Seek vengeance upon those that would disturb our existence of course.
Until then we will continue to do nothing except get along in our little world of imaginary bliss, not wanting to be disturbed by menial things like troop loss and foreign blood being shed daily in Iraq.
That is of course until.......
