    No, that would be complacency and voter apathy.

    Football: War Lite! For when our REAL war machine is in its offseason (however seldom that happens).
    Also, George Carlin’s skit about the differences between baseball and football is still hilarious.

    Well,,,,, it IS a bit less violent than the Gladiatorial Games of ancient Rome were!
    And what American males (and not a few females as well) not seen themselves getting through the line, and running free down the field to a “Touchdown!!” to the screams and approbation of the crowds?
    Of course, by the time you are in your seventies as I am, it no longer seems quite so important anymore……sigh!

    The metaphor is sadly accurate to “American mentality” with regard to violence, and rationale for wars.
