When does it end?

My mind just keeps going back to this Joe Stack story. As a total news junkie American living in a post-9/11 world when I heard about an airplane flying into a building in Texas my Spidey-sense lit up. Then it was reported to be intentional and not an accident which piqued my interest. As I watched this story unfold via different news sites I watched it climb the ladder of relevant news. Then as the investigation hit critical mass the story broke that the Pilot, Joe Stack, was angry at the IRS and even had a “manifesto”. He was an American citizen, angry at the Federal Government, specifically the IRS and decided that “I’m hardly the first one to decide I have had all I can stand”. So he flew an airplane into an IRS building. Once that news broke agencies realized they had a serious hot potato issue on their hands and they didn’t want to ignite copycat radicals, so the story was buried across the board. Within 24 hours a little blip on the news cycle became a major headline and then an albatross. But this man, Joe Stack did exist. I don’t think he was trying to hurt “people” I think he had “had enough” and was trying to make a point. The media can try to shut pandora’s box but I don’t think he will be the last.

In an age when people are making careers out of causing conflict we don’t need more cultural isolationists, bigots or hypocrites. Politicians on both sides of the isle are not only lying to citizens, but are lining their pockets with lobbyist money from companies that do not have citizen’s best interests in mind. This is not new and this is not news. This is not a “who wants to push the cart/ ride in the cart” point I am trying to make. My point is as long as people are distracted and maintain outrage over he said/she said the general plundering of American middle class wealth is happening right out in the open. The stick up comes in the form of hiked up interest rates, fine print loop holes, legal gridlocks and federal tax oppression from which the average citizen has no defense, because even educating yourself about these pitfalls won’t save you from them.

We need to find some sort of pause button because the plundering of American capital has snowballed past the point of reason. Terrorist. Revolutionary. Fanatic. I think this was just the first shot.
