Metaphor For America: Starving 4 Pound Baby Dies In Car While Parents Eat At Golden Corral
What should be done to parents that stuffed themselves full of food at a Golden Corral while their starving four pound baby girl died in their car outside? This actually just happened down in Florida, and it is a crime that is shocking the entire nation. Sadly, it is also a perfect metaphor for what is happening to the country as a whole. We have become an exceedingly selfish and self-centered society that seems to care very little that we are literally destroying the future of America. We are stealing trillions of dollars from future generations and destroying what was once the greatest economy in the history of the world just to make ourselves a little bit more comfortable in the present. We stand by and do nothing while our politicians flush the U.S. Constitution down the toilet and construct a Big Brother police state all around us. We have become a nation of “sheeple” and “zombies” that are so addicted to entertainment that we can’t even see how our society is rotting and decaying in thousands of different ways all around us. So yes, the parents that starved their precious little baby girl to death are guilty and should be punished. But what about the millions of Americans that are doing nothing while America slowly circles the toilet on the way to oblivion?
There are very few news stories that affect me deeply on an emotional level. But when I read about the starvation of this precious little baby girl down in Florida, I was quite upset…
A baby girl named Betsey died, having being starved to death while strapped in her car seat as her parents ate a Florida Golden Corral restaurant.
The parents of the 22-day-old baby have been charged with first-degree murder, police said on Tuesday, accusing them of neglecting the suffering infant.
Ruby Stephens, 23, and Roy Stephens, 48, of Indiana, were visiting relatives in central Florida on December 23 when they called 911 after discovering the baby was unresponsive in their car, according to Lakeland Police.
Betsey Kee Stephens was declared dead at the hospital.
‘She suffered tremendously over the 22 days that she was alive,’ Mike Link, assistant chief of Lakeland Police, told a news conference.
He called photographs of the baby ‘absolutely horrible.’
How cold-hearted do you have to be in order to do such a thing?
How could anyone neglect such a precious baby girl like that?
Inside the Golden Corral, her parents had access to an endless buffet. But they didn’t even bring Betsey inside with them. She sat outside strapped in her car seat as she died from starvation.
But like I said, this is such a perfect metaphor for where we are as a nation.
We have become a selfish, greedy, gluttonous nation that doesn’t care about others and that always wants more for ourselves.
For example, in 1962 only 13 percent of all Americans were obese. But today, 35.7 percent of all Americans are obese, and it is being projected that 42 percent of all Americans could be obese by the year 2030.
And of course it goes far beyond just being physically gluttonous. Much worse is… (to continued reading http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/metaphor-for-america-starving-4-pound-baby-dies-in-car-while-parents-eat-at-golden-corral).
