Shit Together


Is our government thinking ahead enough on the War on Terror beyond the current, new offensives in Iraq? Thinking ahead enough and not too far behind in topical times so that we can feel safe as Americans?


Has anyone thought ahead enough so that when it is announced in the media Bin Laden has been caught we are ready for his followers who have been ordered to carry out X, Y, and Z plans against the U.S. and its interests and supporters?! This is may be a real scenario and I hope I can trust that we will be ready for this. Because we sure as hell weren't ready for 911 since we were still lost in the War on Drugs - and, unfortunately, like for some people who still have the battles of WWII in their heads, or Vietnam, there are still those out of touch people who would like to lock-up some kid for smoking reefer.


The War on Terror is the real battle (and not the agenda of the War on Drugs - busting those for victimless crimes and having our tax dollars pay for these people to, in fact, become more hardened and dangerous to society for spending time in prison for what allot of the country partakes in as part as their own social usage. The War on Drugs proven to be more of a smoke screen for previous administrative agendas and, pitifully, distracting us from real threats from abroad yet right here on the same streets that the War on Drugs was being fought).


So, let's ask ourselves in this precious arena of the media that can so waste our time, agitate, be useful and, sometimes even edifying, do we have our shit together yet?
