    You can only say that because the nuclear holocaust didn’t happen, yet.

    Whereas the nut with the gun happens all too often.

    In the 50s the USSR was “the enemy”. You could point at a map and say “here they are” and you could build weapons that would at least make sure that they won’t laugh about you “afterwards”.

    -

    Today the enemy is terrorism. They are nowhere and everywhere. They are foreign and domestic. They are invisible until they hit. They cause PTSD in soldiers because you always have to have your back against the wall, anybody in theater could be a deadly enemy.

    In a broader sense that change from the 50s to today has also affected the civilian population. There is a lack of community across all people. People don’t look each other in the eye anymore. There is a lack of common sense and an abundance of conspiracy theories, sensationalist reporting and a general “sinking feeling”. Just look at that stupid Mayan calender thing, or the three times (!) this religious nut has called the “Rapture” to happen in as many years.

    America has lost it’s direction. A normal life seems boring compared to that of the superstars (“Honey-Bo-Bo”…), a little wealth seems irrelevant in the context of billionaires and their excesses. Everybody is talking about their freedoms and nobody about their duties to their fellow countrymen. Is it possible to have too many freedom? Can this lead to a kind of madness?

    When I picked my nickname for this site I played on the notion that you system of government is broken and you should try Tyranny for a change. Of cause that’s just a joke, but given the way the citizens of the U.S. behave these days something has to be done, has to be changed. For example filibuster reform in the Senate might be a good step forwards that leads to more laws being passed, more problems being solved, a more positive outlook for all people. But it’s just a first step, and if you want to avoid becoming a nation of nutcases a lot more has to be done, by all levels of society. But the precondition for betterment would be – by a lot of people – to accept that they are part of a society, and that their freedoms don’t mean they can actively try to destroy it!

    How do you explain to a 6 year old that his or her best friend has been taken away from them by a guy who was mad at his Mom, or upset since he lost at his latest video game, or some such excuse?

    Laws don’t solve problems.
    People solve problems.
    Govn. isn’t the answer, responsible, resilient, resourceful citizens are the answer and no law can make that happen.

    Could have been worse. A portly former coworker died of a massive heart attack while flying his small airplane with a full load of fuel on board. He crashed into a field far from any buildings. Had he crashed into a school many children would have been burned.
    I also remember the fire in the Our Lady of Angles school in Chicago on 1 December 1958. 92 children and 3 nuns died. Google it for complete story.

    @narrowminded

    You seem to have a disconnect there. Unless you’re an anarchist, “government” isn’t the antithesis of “people”. Government and law-making should be the collective means by which those “responsible, resilient, resourceful” citzens" work together to establish a framework wherein their individuality can flourish.

    If you don’t believe that, I fear that you’re part of the problem rather than part of the solution. If you do believe it, then you should ask yourself what you’re doing to bring that about.

    @Ms. Ima

    You better look and see if someone hijacked your name for a short time. There is a response to the Nick Anderson cartoon under your name that is actually compassionate, and caring…unlike your usual FAUX Noise scripted drivel…

    Would you be surprised to find out that I live in a part of the country that does NOT have Cable installed, and I cannot get television reception as I am on the far side of a mountain from the nearest town, so I watch NO television at all?
    Seriously, I don’t have any television reception at all. The only T.V. in my house is hooked to a DVD and VCR so I can watch movies.
    Yes, I could get satellite Television, but I do not choose to.
    The only reason I know what FAUX Noise spews is from the few times I visit someone who does have reception, and they happen to have it on. That, and I read the dumbest, most inane comments on here, and extrapolate their content.
    In other words, if it’s an incredibly boneheaded, hyper-conservative, whacko thought, it HAD to come from FAUX Noise, or Rush Limbaugh.
