Headlines That Caught My Eye

I've been pretty discouraged lately with all the garbage floating around out there in our American air (and I'm not talking about swine flu, bird flu or even the deadliest... donkey flu).

There comes a point when I have to focus on what's directly in front of me... my family. I must take care of them even when the country seems to be falling apart. Imagine the helplessness people must have felt in the past when there was no such thing as the Internet (a place where we can post our opinions about what's going on when the "real" media only reports what they want us to know). It makes me wonder truly how much in the past either was exaggerated or buried. I just wonder...

So here is a very long list of links to posts I have been saving to draft in order to make comments later. Well, I don't think I'll get to them fast enough before the news they bare is so old that cobwebs have formed around them. I have always tried to focus my posts on what matters most to me or strikes me as important to speak out against or speak out in favor of whatever the issue may be. Lately, there is so much going on that there is no way for me to keep up. I have often wondered how other bloggers can keep up with events until it dawned on me that some blogs have more than one person making all those dozens of posts in one day... duh.

To those blogs who actually only have one author... I commend you on being able to keep up. All of the events are mind boggling and I do wonder if it is the purpose of this new administration to do so much, so quickly, that there is no way for Americans to keep up and hold them accountable for their actions. If they keep their hands moving in spastic motion, maybe we won't notice that each of them actually have three hands and the third is pushing the truth cautiously to the floor and burying it under the carpet.

Obama calls for voluntary sacrifice while his wife wears $540 sneakers.

Guess she already had HER stimulus money spent, huh.

I think all of us who blog solo struggle with exactly what you describe- sometimes there's just no time to say everything we want to say. Let's face it- we blog for many reasons- because we love to write, because we feel strongly about the issues, because we need an outlet, because Obama is the Antichrist. BUT...we're also managers, paralegals, cooks, parents, etc. You've got a quality blog, and your readers understand
that sometimes events move faster than our ability to post. Keep up the good fight!

Bug, you do a great job with your blog. I used to have more time to devote to mine, but that has been reduced some days (more than others) lately. We (you, me, others) blog when we can and when we can make the time. If we were getting paid for it, heck, that would make it all the better.

Thanks for the mentions in your wonderful list of links.

May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
