so, don't mistake this for political commentary... more of a social observation. so i go to check my email this morning and of course all the advertisers are there, along with the news. first thing that catches my eye... a picture of the first lady. what's the article about? HER SHOES and how they are a "fashion flub". seriously? really? our nation is financially in the toilet, we're still fighting a war that we won't win... and the front page article is about the presidents wife wearing ugly shoes? anybody else see something wrong with this? why aren't we worried about what her husband is doing, what policies are being put in place, how we're gonna get this country back on our feet? why? cause we're too busy voting on our favorite singer for American Idol. 58% voter turnout at the last election?!?! and that's the highest it's been in ages!?!?! Cuba has a nearly 100% voter turnout... and the only canidate on the ballot is FIDEL!!!! other countries would KILL to be able to vote for their leaders, and we shove it off like it's a chore to get off our asses and get to the polls. who gives a crap what dog obama is planning on getting! or if he's still smoking or not! or if he's replacing the white house bowling alley with a basketball court! i forget who first used the term, but it's perfect.... the stupification of our country. distract the population with shoes, and dogs, and the presidents kid's and you can do whatever the hell you want while everyone is looking the other way. don't get me wrong, this isn't me being critical of the current administration.... i'm very optimistic and hopeful everything gets better.... but c'mon people, wake up. if you can't realize that the mainstream media is feeding you whatever dribble they want, then sit back down on your couch with your Guitar Hero 3 and shut your mouth.
