So here I am thinking of reviving the blog that acted as my outlet for pain and anger after Katrina. At some point the pain gradually subsided and I decided that the anger was too unhealthy to maintain. Today I am writing to try to cure another personal foible, my total apathy towards anything that does not affect me. I have become an apolitical person not being able to side with any political group whose extreme solutions seem totally insane to me. My opinion of government is that is is so corrupt and influenced that only those who are a part of the system will benefit from it. I find it absurd that people accept as fact whatever comes out of the mouths of people with influence, including politicians, main stream media, and the blogosphere. I research every crazy bit of B.S. I hear from any media in order to determine what the truth really is.
One might think all of this does affect me. How can I be apathetic towards it? Well it doesn’t really, I am gainfully employed have no spouse or children, I can live the life I want to as Rome burns around me. So why am I getting back on the soap box? I have just heard so many naive and just plain wrong statements made by people who believe they are true. I let them pass not wanting to get into the conversation, justifying it by saying it is not my responsibility to confront ignorance. My decision to Blog again is due to the fact that I think this mis/dis information is a dangerous thing and could lead this country to a ruin that it certainly thinks can never happen here.
Stay tuned I will try to write informative interesting and well researched pieces, as I play the blogosphere’s version of the card game Bull shit.
