Something is Wrong in America

Today (06/06/2011) 5 Americans were killed in Iraq, marking one of the deadliest days for our troops in 2 years.

The nation’s unemployment rate is 9.1%, while the unemployment rate for Blacks sits at 19%. Then we have to face the fact that Black-on-Black crime isn’t going to diminish anytime soon.

Our political leaders are debating whether or not to cut funds for Head Start programs, which are vital to our underprivileged youths.

The politicians want to cut funds for the Meals-on-Wheels program, which are vital to our senior citizens.

Our elected officials want to cut funds for Medicare, which are vital to seniors and disabled Americans.

The people we voted into political office want to cut funds for Planned Parenthood, which is the number one program to deter abortion.

I could go on and on about the wrongs our elected officials have perpetrated on their constituents, but the crime of the century is what the media is doing.

Out of all the facts mentioned above, every media outlet number one story is about Congressman Anthony Weiner’s photos on twitter!

It’s a reason why our children lag far behind most industrialized nations when it comes to education. The people who have a platform to reach the masses are dedicated to feeding us sensationalism.

Conservatives are busy demonizing Liberals, and Liberals are busy demonizing Conservatives; for some reason it’s always a morale struggle when it comes to the left and right wing way of thinking.

What complete fool can’t understand that it’s to our advantage to come together to figure out a way to leave a life for our children better than the life we lived?

Demonizing each other, dam sure aint gonna get the job done; and believe me, there is a job at hand. The question is, who’s ready to go to work?
