Why don’t I feel sorry

This afternoon’s headlines just made me shrug it off. “Congressman’s SUV carjacked!”

I don’t know the congressman personally or even heard of him until today. But when I heard that a congressman’s SUV was jacked! The first thing that popped in my mind was, “go ahead who cares. That’s probably how he got his in the first place.” But maybe not in such violent means. But for me to think of that sort of thing. Such horror!

Such horror that I would think that a congressman would steal a car. But still, why would I think that way? Would I think that way if they actually did something to help the country? Would I think that way if they can spend MY HARD EARNED TAX MONEY on something else rather than LIVING INSIDE CONGRESS HIDING FROM THE POLICE! Can they spend more time writing and passing bills that would protect our rights on the web and content that we create such as movies and music and ideas.

Maybe if they did something more productive than just grandstanding on television about how the president should resign. I would probably feel sorry if their car got stolen. Maybe finally someone will do something about it now.
