I took down my post of last week expressing my frustration with the insurance industry and the powers that be that support it. In the post, I called on either a posse of angry citizens or non-violent protesters. Given the insanity of politics, manifested in the recent shootings in Arkansas, I feel terrible to even suggest such a thing in jest. While the likes of Sarah Palin and her posse scrub their websites of references to "fighting the good fight, etc." -- I'll pull the ridiculous photo of the Wild West fighters that I put up.
The history of violence in our country -- the bullshit imperative of the right to bear arms -- wars in two countries that have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives in the name of liberty and freedom -- well, I want no part of it.
