I missed the President's speech last night. Well, I really didn't miss it at all. I didn't watch it. I'm sure it was a fine speech. I sure he told us all how tough things have been but brighter days are coming. Am I close? I don't have anything against President Obama. I just didn't want to watch the same speech that the prior 10 Presidents have given. I have really become apathetic toward politics. It seems no matter how many people stand up to tell what's wrong in this country, the general population doesn't hear it or doesn't want to hear it. I think it's because we have become such an eggshell society. People are afraid to say anything because they might offend someone. Take for instance, immigration. Yes, we are all ancestors of immigrants. But to save our bankrupt society, we need to control illegal immigration. Which means putting troops on our borders. But wait that might offend certain groups.
So I don't see any reason to watch another rah rah speech. If you politicians really want to get people going in this country, start passing legislation that helps our country and doesn't involve giving yourselves a raise.
