Let's Be Honest - Nobody Cares



Thomas Jefferson once noted that “lethargy (is) the forerunner of death to the public liberty”. It’s sad to ponder what he’d think of this. It appears that President Obama, when looking for a time suitable to explain why he declared war on Libya, made sure not to interrupt Dancing With the Stars.

This shows a number of things. One, the American people could not care less about our too numerous to count foreign wars. Second, the American people could not care less that the President, one man, launched the country into war all by his lonesome, in direct violation of the US Constitution. Last, it shows that Thomas Jefferson must be spinning in his grave.

As the great punk band Green Day sang, “I don’t care if you don’t”. Today, circa 2011, it's obvious that nobody cares. America, I fear your liberty is well past its expiration date.
