I feel like ranting tonight, so bear with me.

First off, why are people so quick to criticize the government when things go wrong? Now I know it isn't perfect. I've been known to complain about a few things myself (such as the lack of states rights). But think about it. What other country in the world has a better government that ours? The only one that comes to my mind is Ireland, but even there you have a divided country half ruled by Great Britain. Of course, there's always the "start our own colony" idea that's been proposed. However, this would be rather impossible, as awesome as it sounds.

Another thing on this note that's really been bothering me is the conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11. (Well, actually most conspiracy theories bother me, but I don't have time to talk about all of them) Apparently there's an organization called "9/11 Truth Movement" that is dedicated to proving that the accounts of 9/11 were falsified. To explain all the theories would take a while, but basically they believe that the World Trade Center was intentionally demolished up by the US government and that the plane that crashed into the Pentagon was actually a missile fired by the US.

To begin with, a lot of this is ridiculous. What purpose would the Government have for causing national panic and blowing up three of their own buildings? If this were true, it means that everything several of my friends, family members, and all our nation's soldiers have been fighting for the last 7 years over nothing. Yes, it united our Nation in many ways. But no one except a terrorist would have murdered tons of innocent people. And if you're calling our government terrorists...well, then we have a problem.

On a totally different note, one of my favorite scenes out of one of my favorite movies:

That's funny. My latest post is on how I'm tired of all this government stuff too. You must have been talking to Lizzie. :)
