you're probably right...i'm just not seeing it.
rather, i consistently see/read about those lazy bastards on welfare, who are soaking us dry...
and never/seldom read about those (on public assistance) who are genuinely hurting and struggling to stay afloat.
i consistently read about those who are rabid at the perceived thought of losing their guns...
and never/seldom hear the frustration and despair of those who have lost their lives through gun-related assaults.
i consistently read that our leftist potus is madly and irresponsibly spending us into a hole, yet never heard a "boo" as the billions of dollars a day that wars cost us...
or, never heard a "boo" to the lives wasted and lost because of these stinkin' wars.
i won't even get into the veterans benefits that are waning away to extent that homelessness and hopelessness (and other mental disorders) are now a way of life for too, too many.
yes, i can go on, but i won't.
so perhaps we do want the same things - although i doubt it.
our priorities are clearly different.
ftr, i am not speaking on behalf of anyone but myself...
and am not going to pretend that we all want the same thing.
i am not seeing it.
i suspect many of the "moral majority" hear the same as well.
all this said, i do feel that on a micro level, i.e., within the parameters of our immediate geograpic domains, many have compassion for those who are in need.
who knows...perhaps this collective compassion will manifest in a concern that reaches all who need it.
i'll take that, too.
