I sense we may indeed be kindred spirits on this issue of grave concern to all life forms in this nation.
First, please allow me to say there simply are no words to describe the horror of reading accounts of sociopaths A-OK with nuking their own nation, their own people, their own families...
Well, I suppose one could reason that, as the ol’ saying goes, what’s fair is, after all, only fair. I know everybody says what’s good for the goose is good for even the Nuker-In-Chief’s dander. As this logic would go then, the poisoning of America’s health and environment – via Depleted Uranium, nuclear power plant emissions, and other dispersal methods of radioactive poison gas - must, out of necessity, also include first families, too… right?
I don’t know. With my Catholic school upbringing and all, I’m just not so sure about this.
Call me old fashioned perhaps, but those of us with a morsel of compassion left in our hearts admittedly do feel a tiny crumb of concern for our American quasi-royalty, too… even if the nut jobs in power are apparently quite A-Okay with radioactively poisoning not just others - but themselves as well.
And as unpopular as this might make me for all those who believe an eye for an eye is the only way to go at this point in what my Revelations-believing friends truly consider is now the prophetic End Times? I am just going to come out and speak what’s in my heart… so here goes.
I do not want young Jenna to inhale dangerous radionuclides into her lungs any more that I wish that fate upon my own young adult relatives… yes, even despite who Jenna’s pop and poppy may be. There, I’ve said it. I don’t want the twins or their families to die a slow, painful death due to radiation poisoning… any more than I would wish such gruesome horrors upon my own flesh and blood.
Look at it this way, if you will. We could have done more and we could have done it sooner. After all, if we had an emotionally unstable child hell bent on inflicting pain and harm on innocent pets and playmates, wouldn’t we have already done our utmost to try to protect the lad and society - by shielding the troubled youth from rendering harm unto himself and others… a long, long time ago?
By the same token, I wonder why then are we – as Americans of strong moral conscience - not doing the same thing with our psychologically unstable political first family? By all rights, should we not already have joined together and physically removed these sociopaths from power – all of them, in all levels of power – to a safe place where they would be able to do no further harm to themselves or others?
