I'm Offended That You're Offended
Life goes on.
I'm a little concerned about the disruption of NYSE and United Airlines being grounded for quite some time due to a "glitch". I truly believe we've been hacked. Even if it borders upon the conspiracy theory route -- you still have to wonder if this was a little 'test' from terrorists. I don't know. But you know what I noticed? Everyone on social media was more concerned over the South Carolina Confederate battle flag being taken down than they were about possibly being hacked by terrorists. Distractions come in many forms and when we stop looking at the pretty skyscrapers above, we'll finally notice that we've been pickpocketed down on the street. We are easily distracted with trending topics and shocking news. When Caitlyn Jenner came out, Christians were being beheaded left and right by ISIS. That's nothing new, but we flow with what's trending regardless. As a blogger, I enjoy talking about trending topics and discussions around the proverbial water cooler. I guess it makes you think of something other than yourself...or myself...or ourselves.
