Last night while watching the boob tube, I turned to news.
There it was on The Five...dissing my show... Homeland. Apparently, The Washington Post feels it is the most racist and bigoted show on television. Whatever.
While discussing the Ebola crisis in Texas, a woman at our table said it was a problem down there because the newest patient was black and did not receive proper care. I scoffed at her remarks. Now, I see Jesse Jackson has arrived. It's a civil rights violation? Lord help us all.
Police shootouts. This comes from my past department's latest case and also other police shootings nationwide as I watch them carefully and read what is released. Comments from citizens on Facebook are hateful toward the police. According to so many educated cop haters, the cops now must be expected to "act like the military and not fire unless fired upon." Since when was that the case. In the same thread many were complaining of our nation becoming a "police state" and too much militarization was being implemented within police departments. So...haters...which is it?
I was chastised for referring to Wyoming as my "homeland" and compared to Hitler. Another person told me this only refers to Native Americans in the United States. In my mind, I was being snarky and it was just a playful wording of the "motherland" I call myself from-not my ancestral roots of Ireland and Germany, mind you. Are we so sensitive everything is now a careful word play?
Heavens to Mergatroid!
