With your "all Katrina, all the time" comment. I can't tell you how many times friends will talk about Olive Garden and I'll remember the one we used to have. It's the little like that that really hit home. Things like how I now have to drive an hour to go to any decent clubs. The small piles of wood and debris. The wood chips that STILL are washed up on the beach shore. The bricks and pieces of building that one can find in the sand up to 30 feet from the shore, in both directions. The amazement at seeing a Wendy's rebuild where it once used to be, and feeling HAPPY over it. The somewhat scared feeling you get when you see "Trespassers will be shot" still spraypainted on the side of a building that has seemingly long been abandoned. Or the emptiness that comes from seeing lot after lot of cleared land.
And I'm just stationed in Biloxi... I don't even have family here.
I was never really interested in politics until the last few years as everything started to 'dawn' on me. Not sure if this was my growing maturity, or that the country got so bad I couldn't help but see it. Maybe a bit of both.
Before, I was never interested in politics cause I was an independent and figured both parties would screw me. I see the error of my ways now, but once things 'right' themselves, I doubt I'll be as activist I am now. I feel a sense of URGENCY with our politics today.
The President's number one duty is to uphold and execute the law... not defend our country.
There's an easy way to answer this question too. Which would you approve of... the President breaking any law to keep us safe, or having a President who follows the law even if we're less safe because of it?
