Description

What's bugging Tom? He's young, good looking, well-to-do, has a beautiful family, and a sweet car! And why does his friend, Paul, have to listen to his continuous babble, for crying out loud? Tolerance and complacency! Words not to bother with. Turning your head to look the other way doesn't reference crossing the street, but rather how we're handling a crossroads in American society. Ahh! The almighty dollar, what Americans wouldn't do for it. An oil company issues a $500 million retirement package to a single CEO. Outrage is contained while we mow our lawns and tend to our families. How many cars does a dealership need to sell to substantiate a $50 million executive salary in Detroit? Where's the money coming from? Car sales from empty lots? Can you say "paid in capital"? Why would we accept this and not accept a pay raise for teachers or cops? Is a society worth saving when it casts more votes for an "American Idol" than it does for an American president, or emulates "celebrity" rather than philanthropy? Some questions that haunt middle-class Colorado resident Tom Winfrey: What's going on here? Does anybody care? Why doesn't every state have an Amber Alert? Why do we have men on foreign soil, while our borders are left unprotected? Why aren't those men in Chad, Sudan, or Somalia? Could it be that those countries don't have the oil reserves to pay for the occupation? What happens when the perverted sicknesses of our society hit home? Tolerance and complacency are no longer an option! America under attack! Total panic! Self-preservation! A dirty bomb would be a welcome nuisance compared to a microbe no one can see or defend against. Who survives, and who deserves to survive, become irrelevant questions! How far would you go to help a friend? Tom will soon find out!show more
