Headlines and Head-shaking

Sometimes we all should look around our great nation and ask ourselves, “what have we become.”

I look at the headlines from all over the world on a daily basis and all too often I come away shaking my head in disappointment over the human condition.

I know I shouldn’t, but I do.

For instance: These headlines.

In Seattle protesters broke windows on looted during a May Day rally. What is wrong with these people?

The British parliament dumped all over Rupert Murdock and his media empire and declared he was unfit to run a multinational empire. Do you know how many people in the United States listen to this man’s media outlets and think they tell them the truth?

Government Graft? On the cusp of the GSA scandal about embarrassing expenditures in a Las Vegas conference, now comes words that a high-ranking homeland Security official has pleaded guilty in a travel fraud ring.

Five idiots were arrested in Ohio and accused of plotting to blow up a bridge near Cleveland. They are self-subscribed “anarchists.” By the looks of their police photos these guys couldn’t spell anarchist. Where does this kind of ignorance come from?

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie reminded Wisconsin voters that the impact of a recall decision before them holds major national implications. Why is New Jersey’s Governor preaching to Wisconsin voters?

Maybe he does want the GOP vice-presidential spot. He says he's not ready for the top spot, why is he ready for veep? He doesn't make any sense.

I’m still shaking my head.
