The Gloves Are Off

When did it become acceptable for adults in this country to act so childishly, selfishly angry? Was it during the 80s, when the pendulum swung back from rationalism and we elected a movie star president, not because what he said made sense, but because his nonsense gave us an excuse to be irresponsible, and the childish anger of the "oppressed" white male was a natural outcome? I vote yes.
So when I see cops dousing pepper spray on a group of sitting kids, despite the constitution's prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, and the cops are cheered by self-styled "patriotic" Americans, then I have to say that this country has hit a new low in immaturity and it's time to call out these fake patriots for being the children they really are.
