Another Sign Of The Times

This country is in the midst of selecting the next leader of the free world.

Islamic terrorists continue to torture, brutalize, and murder innocent people around the world.

Europe is being overrun by so-called refugees, in what many feel is not a humanitarian crisis but rather a slow motion islamic invasion.

A major sponsor of worldwide terrorism - Iran - is on the brink of getting hundreds of millions of dollars, as well as nuclear weapons.

Internationally, American prestige is dropping faster than the stock market.

Here at home, racial tension is spiraling out of control, the economy continues to stagnate, our military is being downsized and hamstrung, obamacare remains a ticking time bomb, unfunded liabilities (Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid) threaten our children's future, and the national debt is higher than it's ever been.

So where is the public's attention being focused?

Where else - on the Kardashians.
Two days after announcing their apps at the Apple store in Soho, the Kardashians and Jenners are still crushing the download charts — and beginning to rake in cash.

The new apps allow fans even greater access to the world of the Kardashians and Jenners beyond their existing presence on seemingly every social media network around, and it charges users a mere $2.99 a month. Of course, as BuzzFeed's Katie Notopoulos pointed out, that’s an insane $142.53 per year if you sign up for all four apps.

But that doesn't seem to be deterring people...
If only they would care that much about current events.

Maybe people can't see a way to influence events but can vote for something that interests them? Low information, but isn't that the norm?

My question is where the cash is coming from. If it's from an EBT card, all bets are off when that system crashes. Lots of folks are going to die....

WSF - sadly, low info voters have become the norm.

Old Man - don't think it's coming directly from EBT, but rather indirectly.

The average American Voter's motto:

"Ignorant is as ignorant does!"

We're in a downward slide, shit-pile of trouble that appears to me to be irreversible.
