Some Lazy American Stuff

So Ebola is, like, a thing now. I mean it’s here. In America. For a while the only thing we heard about Ebola was that it’s all over West Africa and that a lot of people are sick. But now, it’s here. So I guess now it’s time to start freaking out?   That’s what we Americans do best isn’t it? Waiting until something actually affects us to care about it? To be fair, some people are a little over-eager and they get all worked up as soon as something happens somewhere in the world. But for the most part, we sit on our haunches and wait until we must to do something. We are after all the lazy Americans, are we not? And no one has even died of Ebola in America yet. Our health care system is so out of this world amazing that we can cure anything! Okay obviously not anything cause we have all this cancer stuff and HIV/AIDS and diabetes and polio and a few others. But we can cure Ebola! Honestly, I think people need to chill. Maybe if you’re in Texas you should be a little worried. But otherwise, just chill.ebolavsidiocy_590_429 I think people need to calm down with this whole ISIS business too. Like, what does that even stand for? Don’t get me wrong, it sucks that people can’t get along and just talk their problems out but really, this is happening on the other side of the world. We’re fine. Last time I checked, we have the strongest, most powerful military in the world. I mean okay we are kinda everywhere right now  and, sure, we’re reducing the military’s budget but does that make us weak? I don’t think so. All I’m saying is that we are the B-E-S-T best of all the rest. ISIS-War And now, every time something happens we’re all like TERRORISM but that seems a bit rash, doesn’t it? Sure that’s a huge fear of a bunch of people right now, that America will get attacked and it will be doomsday because we won’t be able to defend ourselves, but shouldn’t we wait until something big happens? Until there is definitive proof that we’re screwed? Why be proactive at all when you have the best military in the world to stand behind? I guess what I’m really trying to say with all this is that as Americans, we have grown up being taught how to be as lazy as possible until it is absolutely necessary to step into action and we do a pretty damn good job at it. We freak out when things happen here, at home, on our turf. Because why worry when it’s someone else?
