I've pretty much stopped paying attention to politics. It's just too big for me to get a handle on. For the first time in my life I feel truly powerless over what is happening around me. I wonder if a lot of people feel the same as they grow older and see their ideas and thoughts squashed under the enormous weight of the world, and the people who run it. At one time I actually thought I had a part in running it, and what I said and wrote made a difference. Silly me.
Military action in Syria? Have we lost our minds? Again? Flashing pictures of gassed Syrian Citizens, playing on our emotions, justifying war-it's all madness. Shock and Awe my ass, there's people on the other end of our bombs, people getting blown to bits, and it hurts just as much as being gassed. I'd rather my own government gassed me to death than be bombed to smithereens by a foreign power. I'll never forget how sick I felt when we bombed Baghdad and the big three news outlets ran patriotic music while images of the destruction – from afar of course- played on. Things on the streets ain't so pretty, and when the bombs come raining down I don't care how precise we think they are, lots of people are going to get killed. This country can be great, and the people in it want it to be. But we cannot be great while sticking our noses in other people's wars. Perhaps we have gotten too big, and think we need to prove just how big we are. I for one do not give a hoot about being big. I'll get big enough when somebody attacks me or my people, until then, I have plenty to worry about in my own backyard.

Sleeping then and now
Most of the EMT's and FF's I know work a minimum of 24 hours straight and are on call all night long, I know of several cases where they had call all night long, so after going without sleep for so long, who can blame them. Put yourself in their boots before you say anything.

Sleeping then and now
most of the emt's and firefighters I know work 24 hour shifts and are on call at all times of the night. Does the person know what their shift was like during the night. I personally know of cases where the fire dept only got 1 to 1/12 hours of sleep because of call outs…
