I just realized I typed all that and it really didn't say much at all, but basically my opinion on things is that I live better than 80% of the world thanks to people who lived before me in this country under our government and I am sure during those times things seemed controversial and conspiracy theories were everpresent, the difference today being the advances in technology allow the actions that spur those conspiracy theories to be more dramatic and more lethal. All I can do is just live my own life and roll with the punches and hope things that are out of my hands are handled with the best interests for as many people as possible. (Not to say that I think it is okay for other people to die in order for others to live better, that is just how things happen, it is unfortunate and out of our control for the most part)
We all, no matter how much we disagree with our government or those in it, have to be grateful because right now we are all posting on an internet forum, allowed to say whatever we like to a certain degree, about a sport that we put hundreds if not thousands of dollars into to allow us to go down a mountain (or hill in some cases) and enjoy ourselves whenever we would like.
