Found this picture on the DRUDGE REPORT website. It was a photo taken in Washington after inauguration. Was going to write something about it, but saw a comment posted underneath the article which said it all:
I have read this article, and then happened to glimpse the top of the Drudge Report today (Wednesday). You will see an appalling scene at the Washington Mall, Monument in the distance, absolute destruction of public property in the foreground. If we are dealing with a "messiah", maybe he can transform this collective mentality of apathy and irresponsibility. Ironic, that we've heard nonstop rhetoric describing how we are in an age of self-responsibility, yet a National landmark is left looking like Woodstock . Is this photo a metaphor for what we are about to see in our country? So, this "crowd" was too "mesmerized" to take their trash with them? I cannot help but make this connection, the scene looks like a landfill, and it speaks volumes about the crowd who stood there. Lack of responsibility, lack of forethought, lack of respect, and expectations, expectations, expectations.. Messiah? No one was really listening, obviously.
