Recently, Tiger Woods crashed his Cadillac Escalade resulting in some minor injuries. Unless you live under a rock, I’m sure you’ve heard all the speculations and rumor surrounding this unfortunate accident by now. It’s been about the only thing being covered by the main stream media as of late. Even Fox News is releasing stories about potential causes linked to Tiger’s scandalous doings.
My question: Who really cares? So Tiger crashed his car, it happens to about 6 million Americans each year according to the statistics. So what if the crash was caused by an angry wife who recently found out that Tiger had been cheating on her. If he was cheating, he deserved to be chased out of the driveway with a golf club, it’s even almost fitting. Again, who really cares? What does this have to do with me and how does it affect my life? Simple answer, it doesn’t! Sure, there are 100’s willing to jump on the bandwagon and claim that this more evidence of our moral decline, but this is a story of one man. Others wish to talk about Tiger’s lost endorsements and impact it will have to his career, but again, I DON’T CARE! Nothing Tiger does, or doesn’t do, in public, in his private life, or in any other aspect has any impact on me.
What this story does do is detract from the issues that are facing America today. Personally, I think that the current administration should be helping pay for Tiger’s divorce attorney due to the fact that it’s taken the media attention off of them and their current back room dealings. Thanks to Tiger’s silly miscalculations in judgment, America’s attention has been diverted for the short term.
Everyone, we still have a government trying to force an albatross of a health care upon it’s people. We have a president, who on one hand condemns those that attacked us on 9/11, but in the same breath calls the perpetrators members of “one of the world’s greatest religions”. A religion, that by it’s very nature, preaches hatred and death to American citizens, or infidels. He claims that there “has been no delay or denial of resources necessary to conduct this war”, yet refuses to acknowledge that it took him months to even talk with General McChrystal, then only allowing him a portion of the resources requested. We have a government intent on raising the taxes imposed upon it’s citizens while claiming that a failed stimulus packages is providing for an economic rebound, even tho our adjusted jobless rate is now sitting at roughly 17%. We have the issue of “"Climate-gate”, where it has been found that the so-called “facts” of global warming have been skewed, falsely reported, or in some cases, just plain fabricated, to support a broken theory aimed at trying to control the populace. Last, but not least, our government now wants to taken the broken TARP program and redirect the funds to a poorly attempted job recovery effort.
Folks, we still have a lot of turmoil ahead of us. There is still a major fight for our freedoms and prosperity brewing. We must not be taken off course by the story of a famous golfer crashing his luxury SUV. Don’t fall under the switch and bait tactics of the media and keep your eyes on the real issue, our dwindling way of life at the hands of our current government. Okay, we’ve all taken note, passed our judgments on Tiger around the water cooler, but now it’s time to start paying attention again. In the grand scheme of things, this story has no consequence, so stopped fanning the flames.
