31st Rant: Celebrities and what REALLY matters in America

For those of you who had either followed my blog for some time or who are new, permit me to explain why I first started blogging. The year was 2005. I was on the internet reading a few articles when my mom and uncle were talking about Martha Stewart and her release from prison. Mom had asked me for my opinion on it. A couple of days later, I was watching the news and all that the pundits and reporters could talk about was Martha Stewart. What infuriated me was not the fact that they talked about her release but that they kept at it for 5 solid hours. In fact, I was so infuriated that I had started a blog and led off with it.

And now here we are, seven years later and yet we have another celebrity making news constantly. This time it is Whitney Houston and her death. Granted, she was a good singer and everything, but I just have one question to ask everyone. What effect does she have on your life, liberty, or property? I mean, we have a Republic to save from Obama and a deficit to clear up. Right now more people are worried about American Idol, Justin Bieber, and what is on Extra or Entertainment Tonight than things that TRULY matter. If I am not mistaken this is how Rome fell. People were worried about the sporting events or the plays that they did not see the Empire falling from within until it was too late. 2010 was a wake-up call for us to take our Republic back, and if we learned anything from the CPAC meetings of last week, it is that this year we need to do whatever we can to ensure that Barack Obama and the Democrats do not maintain control of the government.
