There is a lot heavy stuff going down in the United States these days. The increased stress and tension level we all feel is perpetuated by the incompetence, indecision and dysfunction in Congress. In addition, we are also a nation continuously at war. Unfortunately, our collective consciousness of war is fading away. In case you didn’t know, our nations longest war, the Afghan War, started its thirteenth year today. Operation Enduring Freedom was officially launched on October 7, 2001.
All the dicking around instead of governing Congress is doing these days makes me wonder if they actually forgot the fact that we’re still a nation at war? Perhaps it’s more like a highly selective memory that has been disrupted by their own shutdown.
