How Did We Get Here?

Once upon a time people used to talk and maybe even throw a few fisticuffs if they had a disagreement. Nowadays they’re quick to shoot, stab, or bludgeon someone to death over the most menial thing. Frankly, I think all those ragers who think killing is the answer are just big, stupid pussies: not smart enough for verbal sparring, and they’re not brave enough to fight.

How the hell did we get here as a society? Sad.

I see our society degrading constantly. Sense of family is lost. Communication is degrading. I am right there with you Carlos.

begs the question...what brought this on?

FlyinFox: I do too. Ever see that movie Idiocracy? I swear that's what we have in store for ourselves.

Gator: Just the shit on the news - the usual bullshit about people killing peop (or trying to). I particularly hate the fact that our local news sees a need to cover plain vanilla crimes in other states or countries. As if we don't have enough in our own hometowns.

Idiocracy is funny. Its sad that we will end up that way before too long.

Re the news: Wow you must live in a small town if they are covering small time shit in other states.

Not so small....San Antonio is like the 6th biggest city in the country. The news is just fucked up, that's all. In all fairness, it's not isolated to here. I've seen the same thing in bigger cities, like Philly, Newark, and Baltimore. If it's sensational, it'll be covered....sad
