People in America like to talk about how
snitches and rats are bad until they themselves become defendants facing
dozens of years in a cell and then decide snitching and not being in
prison sound just fine.
Not too long ago, the school of thought
espoused by those who liked George W. Bush when he was giving speeches
that sounded as if Ricky from Trailer Park Boys wrote them was
that people who don’t like the president are not American.
Sometimes you hear about a particular
thing you don’t care about with such frequency that you wonder if you
are supposed to start caring about it or if those who shape our society
are just hellbent on distracting you from important things that are
occurring in the world we live in.
