    The Super Bowl: All an illusion

     
    Now that the Super Bowl is over, now that the media hype over this event is over, one has to ask these simple set of questions:

    Was it worth all that time, energy and money just to feel "safe?"

    Was it worth the bomb sniffing dogs, snipers and TSA molesting agents?

    Was it worth the illusion that everything is just fine, but simply surrender your liberty to feel safe?

    Why was so much effort put into this event instead of addressing the following:

    We are 17 Trillion USD in debt
    Millions of Americans have lost and are losing their jobs
    Millions of Americans have lost, and will lose their doctors and health care
    Illegal immigration is running rampant, but yet we were able to miraculously secure this event
    Our Congress is bought and paid for by bankers, corporations and lobbyists

    So in light of all the issues outlined above, all we have to ask is this, was this Super Bowl worth it?
