Outrage Fatigue.
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 03:00 AM by LynnTheDem
Plame...Iraq...medicare...social security...top fundraisers get bush Administration positions...forcing EPA to lie, which will kill many Americans...Iraq...constantly breaking federal laws...Torture R US(A)...Gonzales...Iraq...illegal campaigning...paying journalists for White House covert propaganda...Iraq..."Homeland Security" funds diverted to bush...war-profiteering...Columbian paramilitary terrorists 'working' alongside US troops...Fox News misinforms 80% of viewers..."You need to watch what you say"...still a shortage of ammo and rifles and body armor and armored vehicles 2 years later...OBL running free, 2001-2005+...$50 million, "army of 10,000", and $17 million security costs for coronation while troops die for the king's lies and lack of armor...

There's just no fucking end.

We're despised by the entire world. Even the UK polls show the majority of Brits don't like us. We have no moral authority and no credibility whatsoever. We're the biggest terrorists, the biggest bullies, and the biggest hypocrites on the planet.

Tomorrow there will be yet another outrage...

And 2 adults having oral sex is worse HOW???

2. I hope they do, before others decide to.
The blowback coming our way from the crap bush has done is going to be a real bitch.

3. THAT is the issue that matters.
And I hear you.
Oh you forgot Porter Goss...UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE, that outrage.
Problem is, most Americans are too ignorant to understand.
I think that is a HUGE component in my fatigue-
the complete IGNORANCE of so MANY people as
to what is happening and WHO these satanic people are.

4. Good description -- outrage fatigue!
I definitely have it, too! I am so fucking sick of bad news, bad news and more bad news...it seems like everytime we turn around "joe average citizen" is getting fucked by this president.

Shrub is digging us further and further into a hole and I don't see how the hell we are ever going to be able to pull ourselves out!

When is someone going to stand up to these criminals?

5. Good question...WHEN INDEED?
We have been screaming it from the roof tops,
taking horrific abuse for it from the IGNORANT
people who have not yet realized that the shitstorm
is going to destroy them too!
It is maddening.
You are in the house- it is burning down,
you tell the other people in the house with you-
"The house is on fire, RUN!"
And they just sit there on the couch, watching
fox news, and sipping diet soda.
Simply astaonishing, but the fact is,
they are ignorant.
Not bad, not stupid, just COMPLETELY ignorant.

6. Not all are completely ignorant.
Many of the freeper types I know are not uninformed people by any stretch.

They are simply evil people. Period.

They KNOW * is going to put many people out on the streets. They know there is no 9/11 connection or WMD, they simply do not care.

They believe, as the Straussian neocons do, that as the world's sole remaining superpower we can do what we like. Screw the rest of humanity.

They also follow the Straussian belief that 99% of the people are sheep and are to be used and tossed aside by leadership. They believe that deliberate deception of the masses is not only acceptable, but necessary, to achieve their goals.

They are selfish, greedy, fascists who do not care about anyone or anything but themselves.

Sort of sounds like their leader.

7. Outrage Fatigue, indeed,,,,,,
I am ready to bury myself in selfish projects & diversions, just to get away from all of this craziness,,,,

I cannot believe what's going on with our Government and am stunned when no one else (except in CyberSpace) seems to notice. I just got back from visiting my family and everyone voted for Kerry but none of them is angry, outraged, scared ~ or even really talking about stuff,,,, they seem to have all just shrugged and gone on with their lives,,,, I am truly feeling like a lunatic these days,,,,

Being this mad for so long cannot be good for my health or well-being!!

10. It would be much easier to stomach if ONLY we had a media
that MADE the American people AWARE of how hated we are and WHY. That's the outrage, the little communities on the Internet know and the country at now does not seem to have a clue, at least half of them.
