It is amazing to me that just days after a call from the president to tone down things, Sean Hannity is calling for war. He wishes for us to go to war to secure oil. http://thinkprogress.org/2011/01/14/hannity-invade-iraq/ This neo-manifest destiny coming forth from him is indicative of one of the problems with my country. Who are we to demand that someone gives oil to us? In the Christ spirit I ask, what makes us so much better than the Chinese? Do we really wish to give into the same spirit of superiority that claimed the soul of Hitler and destroyed a nation? Would it not be a better usage of our young to encourage them to develop new means of transportation and new fuels than to send them off to fall on the sword of a finite source of fuel? It is amazing that we need to cut our budget but yet someone is calling for war to fuel his SUV and private jet.
Sometimes people become so wrapped up in their own little world that the hint of discomfort forces "stupid" from their mouths. The sad part is the "stupid" that emits from their mouths sometimes fall on the ears of those whose sole purpose in life is to destroy. Those people sit and wait for any word to come along to justify their intent to destroy. It has been 7 days as of today since the Arizona shooting, yet in our minds we have forgotten the lesson of the shooting. When will we stop seeking violence as the means to resolve our issues? I wonder just whose children are Hannity in a rush to put into harms way?
Are the lives of these children worth less than his SUV or private jets? The thoughts of these children, in my view, are worth more than the gas I put into my Ford Ranger. I am not willing to send one child to war so that I may ride even to my mailbox. I am willing to do more than pin a flag to my shirt or a yellow ribbon to my jacket, I am willing to make real sacrifice. I wonder how many others using the airwaves to speak violence into being are willing to do the same?
