Change the Channel (mini rant) PIOG

In this current climate of anti government extremism, today on the 15th anniversary of the OKC bombing is the time to remember that we were facing this same climate 15 years ago. Certain "news" personalities are fueling the hate and heating up the anger. This will only lead to another Timothy McVeigh and more Alfred P. Murrah Federal Buildings. Change the channel people. Turn off the haters.

Rise up this morning, smile at the rising sun; Three little birds, pitch by my doorstep; Singing sweet songs, a melody pure and true; Singing, this is my message to you-ou-ou; Singing Don't worry, about a thing; Cause every little thing is gonna be alright.

I was in OKC back then.  Personally, I think the current hate speech is way worse now than 15 years ago.  I believe the "political" nutjobs who are spewing and stirring right now are looking for a climax - be it an assassination attempt or another building in rubble.  JMO.

I think they are hoping its an assasination attempt, but I'm sure they'll settle on something they can blame on liberals and Obama.

I can get behind that opinion. So many scare tactics. Why now? What is there to be so afraid of???

I don't know if you noticed the semi-black man who is the cause of all our nation's problems - drip, drip, drip.

Yeah, but so MANY insist that it is 'policies' not race, that I just have to believe that. Right.

Eh, people don't usually admit to being ignorant or biased.  The world would be easier if we could make people wear signs.  Mine would have a big tree getting a hug :).
