Response to Reply #133
136. i apologize for
my snarky reply.

I live close enough to this situation to be tired of hearing about them- and tired of their foolishness- It seems like so many people are trying to give these people so many 'passes'- and instead of them realizing that they are so fortunate to live here, and NOT in Iraq, or Darfur, or Somalia- or Haiti- and being reasonable and rational they play games, and waste more money, time, and effort-.... why???? do they really have a legitimate reason to behave this way?

I do give a shit that they are getting prefrential treatment- i don't want them killed- or for them to be put into a place where they can attempt to justify their use of the violence they have threatened.

Remember Kanye West? Remember the graphic example of the African American people in NOLA Looting- versus the "White" people "getting supplies"???? this is just another example of much the same thing-

I'm tired of people using the meme of 'god' or 'freedom' or 'the constitution' to justify doing what they know- deep down inside to be WRONG-

They were convicted in a court of law- they have jerked the authorities here around time after time.
I don't respect- or admire them-

BUT- i don't mean to dump my frustration about them on you- and I'm sorry that i did.

i do wish you peace, and hope you'll excuse my attitude-
