Warning: Semi-political rant coming to a head

Call me crazy, but I'm not feeling all warm and fuzzy about the state of our Country these days.  Yesterday Osama Bin Laden was declared dead, the week before tornadoes ripped through the middle of the US, and the week before that a Kindergarten student in Houston took a gun to school.  Gas prices over Easter weekend were as high as $3.88 and continue to climb, and tomorrow my baby turns one.  It's all overwhelming.  As Rodney Crowell put it in a song, "It's too much to keep up with, It'll jangle your head; the whole situation's running way in the red."

... And it's true.  It is all too much to keep up with.  What with people like Donald Trump hinting around about running for president?  When did being an American come to this?
