Is there something in the air?  Or is it in the water?  What is it with people these days?  So many senseless attacks, so many senseless murders.  And that's just in this country.  The story of the two toddlers, left alone in their apartment, who put their baby sibling in the oven and turned the oven on just absolutely floored me.  What is going on with humans?  Is there some kind of subliminal signal being broadcast over the airways?  I am not ordinarily a conspiracy theorist but something sure as hell is going on.  Or is it just that the news stations have to provide us with violence for ratings.  I don't watch U.S. news but I do read some stories on Facebook.  Once in a while I turn on BBC news to see some of what is going on in the world that the U.S. stations wouldn't broadcast.  Violence seems to be the new entertainment these days and it is distressing, to say the least.  It's as if Rome is falling again.  I'm glad I don't have to raise children and that I have lived the years I have.
Questions.....I'm told that Syrian men are fleeing so they can get work in another country so they can establish a place for their families to come to.  The question is...why aren't they fighting to keep their country instead?  And why aren't our law agencies doing a better job going after the arms dealers who are supplying the enemy (such as ISIS)?  And why does our government continue to give money to countries that want to destroy us?  Something's gotta give and I'm afraid it's going to be soon.
Am I a doomsayer?  Maybe, but I sure don't see things getting better soon without something being done to stop the madness.

I agree with you 100%. Why does the US think we have to pay these countries to make war on us, attacking our people and allies? Makes no sense or cents at all! Why not just cut off the funds - it isn't going to the "people" anyway, that's obvious, or they would try to stay there and fix things at home.
Speaking of which - isn't that what the American Revolution was about? Ok, we're here - y'all are there, let us do things our way and make our own mistakes. We'll fix it ourselves. . .Don't need your soldiers or paying your taxes to fix it for us. Rather simplistic, I agree, but hopefully you get the point.

I feel the same. I cannot figure out for the life of me what is going on in the world! Things seem totally out of hand. Makes me tired and almost sick to see the death and destruction everywhere!

Wonder how many others feel the same way but are afraid to say so. Thanks for stopping by.
