I have been kinda confused about what exactly the government has been trying to get across to us about the war on terrorism. I mean for all of us who are not fighting overseas or are not part of the military establishment no one has really been able to tell me. Since 9/11 the government has told everybody to just go about their business. Buy that house! Get that car! But at the same time saying what a dangerous situation we are in and we should not question those in authority because they know what’s really going on.
During all the other wars there were drafts, blood drives, rubber drives, the government put the people to work making tanks, airplanes guns, ammo and machine parts. What should the American people be doing to help combat this evil threat that is bent on world domination?
It took me a while to distill down what the main thrust of the message from the Whitehouse is, but I think I finally figured it out.
