If you're more outraged that some protesters blocked the freeway for a while than you are about an unarmed man being choked to death over some untaxed cigarettes, then I already know what our first fight will be about, and you can skip me.
If you're a die-hard republican OR democrat, then I believe you're missing the big picture, because both mainstream parties seem to have little regard for the bigger picture. I believe too many folks are ignoring the central tenets of every major world religion, which seem (to me) to all agree that we should love and support our neighbors, especially those less able to care for themselves.
Depending on your point of view, we're all divine beings with the power of the universe at our fingertips, or little more than tiny embers in the fire of the universe, smoldering helplessly until extinguished. I believe both may be true.
