I Warned That This was Getting Political…

I usually refrain from politics. I am no politician. I detest politics because to me it is equal to corruption.  You have people vying for power, but they want that power and are negligent of the people who are subject to them.  In the name of progress, they destroy–lives and land. In the name of security they lie and take from the people.  In the name of “betterment for society” they take what is not rightfully theirs to take or preside over that which they have no business getting involved in.  This is what America has come to. No person knows how to mind their own business and let people be who they are, and I think that they do not care how many cultures and peoples they wipe out to make THEIR world a better place.   I could care less who one marries, but I do care that our children are the ones who pay the price for all the division this country has become embroiled in.

Yet nobody seems to know or care that this nation is imploding.  As long as  they get to watch their next NFL game, episode of “The Voice”, “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant“,  NCIS or whatever, they do not care that they are being trampled upon and laughed at by those in Washington D.C.

We are to blame for this.  For too long, America has sat back and let their next door neighbors run over them–with regard to the subjects of how to live their lives and how to raise their children.  Well if some of these people had stood up to these neighbors and raised their kids right, our prisons wouldn’t be over-crowded–and yet THIS is the crowd running the country?  It is time for America to take back its schools, its children, its local governments, state governments and then the Federal Government. It is time to clean house.

Now we can become involved in yet ANOTHER  Middle Eastern conflict.  I would like to know how it is that usually the White House circumvents Congress when given half a chance and now all of a sudden these “representatives of the people” are going to give this person free license to enable more blood of our precious sons and daughters to be shed?  These people say that those who agree with the Constitution cling to “guns and religion”…Well my question is this: “What do our enemies in the Middle East cling to”?  What? I can’t hear you.  However,  I think I just heard a pin drop in Washington D.C.

Great Britain took to the streets and stopped involvement in this and it is time the moms in America did the same thing. If the dads want to join in, that’s even better!  If this offends some of my friends, I make no apology for it. My son almost died and he is never going to be the same. I do NOT want to see any other person endure what my boy had to deal with. I have no desire to see the plethora of flag-draped coffins that would come out of this disaster either.  Not that D.C. gives a damn.  They really don’t care about us as a people. However maybe this is something we should look at:

http://www.theonion.com/articles/poll-majority-of-americans-approve-of-sending-cong,33752/

Perhaps if all members of Congress were required to go and live in a place like this for six weeks or 4 months they would think twice before getting our children, brothers, sisters, parents, etc…killed.  Look , we sign their paychecks. They are supposed to be working for us, but in the past 8 years, they haven’t. It is time to put them in their place or vote them out. They don’t care about you, me or anyone else. If they did they would be listening to the majority of people, who disagree with this administration, its policies and the way Congress is allowing itself to get stomped on at every turn because the Senate doesn’t give a damn either. Wake up, people! We and our children have been  at their disposal long enough!

How much longer do we have to pay for the mess this country has gotten itself into with the sweat of our brow and the blood of our sons and daughters?  Take a long pause and think about what I just asked.   I do know this much, I will support NO CANDIDATE from either party in the next round of elections if they support getting us into another war.  It is my tax money that enables them to live among the 1-2% people keep complaining about. Maybe we should take that back and the power over our bank accounts as well. You do know that they gained power over your bank account, right? Read the Affordable Care Act in its entirety and get back to me. They gained far too much power through it. Here is the link to it. WARNING: It is over 900 pages long so we should also be voting out the congressmen/women who voted for this WITHOUT reading it.

At least if you read it, you will KNOW what is in it which is more than I can say for the ones who passed this thing and thus betrayed us all.

http://www.kaiserhealthnews.org/final-health-reform-bill-patient-protection-and-affordable-care-act.aspx

In short, we have been betrayed by them and are slowly being enslaved. That is their real goal and I want better than that for my sons and my grandson…It is sad that a majority of our representatives in Congress now only represent their own interests and not the American people who put them into office.

 

Yale’s War on Women…Part 2…

This post is only going to put forth some rather inflammatory questions. Why isn’t Yale facing the same scrutiny and penalty in the public eye  that Penn State had to face over that child sex abuse crap/Joe Paterno controversy?  Are the leaders at Yale saying it is quite alright to abuse women by only giving reprimands and downgrading rape on campus to a charge of “Non-Consensual Sex“?  Who are they to decide penalty for what IS still a crime in this country? Better yet, who came up with that policy? Whoever came up with it should be exposed publicly for being such an insensitive, uncaring excuse of a human being.

No campus, be it high school, college, technical institute or whatever has any right to re-write the laws of the state they were built in OR federal law. The last time I checked, rape was (and still is) a felony.  As far as I am concerned, they are aiding and abetting criminals with such policies. The Attorney General for that state should also be raising hell at this point! Why is there only silence?  If there is a rape, they should all be REQUIRED to call the police immediately as they are not qualified to investigate a crime on campus. I am not even going into how many missing women ended up dead because colleges don’t report them missing when they don’t show up for classes and their belongings are still in their dorm rooms either…Yes, this has happened. Read the news!

Get real people! No one is exempt from the law–ivy league or working Joe… They are certainly not above them. Any college campus be it Yale, Harvard, Columbia University or whatever should be REQUIRED to report these crimes against women to the police in order to keep their certification status as well. If they fail to do so, they should be put on probation and if this behavior continues, SHUT THEM DOWN.  Their female students deserve a lot more respect than what such policies afford.  I am sick of these people re-writing terms to “sweeten” them so that they are watered down to mean nothing.

Yet we watch and still do nothing.  NOTHING…What is wrong with us? Do we not see that these policies are designed to bully us and reduce us to chattel again?  Is this what we want for our future women in this country? I don’t think that for one minute, and I do not think that Elizabeth Cady Stanton or Susan B. Anthony would disagree on that point either. If one basic tenant of our rights as women gets eroded, they all will eventually be eroded.

This is where women’s rights groups (Hear that N.O.W.?) should be raising hell but they won’t. The women’s rights movement has been very fragmented and disjointed for many, many years and if the women cannot unite long enough to take care of this, that organization might as well call it a day in this country.  They keep complaining that it is the GOP trying to take all of our rights away, yet Yale has turned out a vast number of political leaders.  Many of those from bygone eras are doing somersaults in their graves right now, and I am very certain of that. Why complain about the GOP when our very complacency as a group has rendered our voices to be so ineffective?

We spend more time arguing over gay rights and abortion rights than anything–and that is what these clowns at YALE are counting on. Put it aside for now. This is a bigger battle in this war and it is much more important. Anyone who thinks otherwise has never faced a rapist.

How can we raise hell for our rights when we cannot even agree on what those rights are? Alice, are you listening?  It doesn’t matter if we are Democrat, Republican, gay or straight, pro-life or pro-choice–we have to stand toe to toe against such policies to protect our daughters and grand daughters. Doesn’t anyone hear what I am saying? Get off the PC bullshit AND off of the ultra-religious bandwagon so that we can actually get something done to benefit all of us for a change.  We need to show these so-called “leaders in education” what we think of such policies and let them know that we will not stand for them.

Nobody deserves to be raped or abused and any policy that runs contrary to that particular train of thought should and MUST be challenged both legally and via demonstrations. It is time to stop shining the seats with our butts and take action. This is the beginning of a huge threat to our very existence as women in a free country.  It starts with such idiotic policies at the educational level. They really think we don’t care and will say nothing. WE have to prove them wrong!  It is going to be up to us to keep our freedom because no one else is speaking for us. NO ONE. Not N.O.W…Not Concerned Women for America…NO ONE.  That fact in itself is tragic. Someone needs to take up the reigns and guide the chariot. Where is that person?  Come on, Alice…Wake up!  Think!

It starts at the educational level. It starts with raising hell at Yale…Can we not unite long enough to rein them in?  Here’s an oddity for you: Both Bushes, Bill Clinton, Gerald Ford, and William H Taft all graduated from Yale.  Being that Yale churned out 5 presidents, one would think their standards of behavior would be more strict–but HELL NO!  They went back to the Medieval Era long before the GOP had a chance to get that going full steam–which is something the Democrats accuse them of on a regular basis…Well, if we sit silently and do absolutely nothing, the ultra-right wing of the GOP won’t need our help now will they?

 

Alright…Enough of the Stupidity

I have a huge problem with people who “aren’t good in math” being responsible for handling large amounts of money and having the authority to snoop into our bank accounts & finances. After all this crap I am convinced that anyone working for the IRS  should have to pass a literacy test AND those in high positions–a psychological exam.

The government does not want to take care of the people–it wants to control them. HUGE difference.  The biggest problem our government has is that like most of our neighbors, it has not yet learned to mind its own damned business since we sign their paychecks.  I don’t care who you marry, or what you do with your personal life, but when the government starts trying to control others at the expense of those who don’t agree with them, it can lead to tyranny and I have a huge problem with that.

And if a person is NOT an expert in the field of medicine, then he/she should not have access to ANYBODY’S medical records either.  The IRS has no business overseeing the Obamacare program–there should be a separate agency entirely made up of people who have worked a few years in the field of MEDICINE overseeing that program. Those people should also be required to have 15-20 years of experience in the field of medicine in order to get a supervisory position.

NOBODY in the IRS is qualified to diagnose medical conditions and such and therefore should not be deciding who gets care and who doesn’t.  The IRS was never meant to be an extension of governmental power over the people, and if that is what it is becoming then it should be dismantled. We have the technology to use a flat rate tax for all and deduct THAT from the paycheck anyway and the people in that outfit are obtaining far too much power. They are not law enforcement. They are not homeland security…They are, for lack of a better term, auditors and book keepers. That is where their ability lies and nowhere else.

I have a duty to let people know that this is one agency that should never wield so much power over the American People.  It is far too dangerous being that they can rob us all with the simple push of a button attached to our bank accounts.

Why Must this Nation Be Divided So?

Freedom…Does anyone truly understand what the word really means any longer?  I remember a day when people could speak their minds without being labeled and hated by their neighbors. They simply agreed to disagree and left it alone.  We now live in an age that seems to give rise to a sentiment that change of heart can be brought about by bullying in courts or in the educational field.  If there is one thing people need to realize is that all the legislation one puts on paper will not change the hearts of the oppressed.

When a group is oppressed by another group to the point to where speaking can lead to being severely penalized–whether speaking about beliefs or political philosophy, that is tyranny.  There is no freedom in granting rights for one group without extending the same rights to another group and this is especially true when it comes to freedom of speech and expression.

To prosecute one individual for a hate crime without prosecuting others equally under the statute is no better than the discrimination suffered by minorities in the 50’s and 60’s.  IT is still discrimination because such laws are only applied subjectively and enforced as such.

It is a sad day in our country when someone murders a Native American and no hate crime is prosecuted.  It is almost always downplayed in the legal system.  It is also a sad day in this country when a woman can be killed simply for being a woman, or a girl killed simply for being “too American” and yet no one sees these as the hate crimes they truly are.   If we are going to prosecute “hate crimes” in this country it needs to be made clear that if the motive for the murder has anything to do with race, gender, ethnicity, political affiliation, etc… then it should be equally prosecuted and punished under those same hate crime laws, otherwise the laws are worthless and will result (eventually) in chaos.  There have been murders of women of different ethnic backgrounds based on pure misogyny and yet EVEN when the perpetrator admits that was the motive, it is STILL downplayed in court.

Our country should not be basing legal decisions based on the cultures of other countries. That is not done when a citizen of this country is incarcerated or killed in other countries.  We are expected to know the laws and such and even in this country, ignorance of laws is not an excuse for breaking them so how is cultural background now being considered in such matters? It is ludicrous.

WE the people have one rule of law and that is based upon the Constitution of the United States and  courts should ONLY be operating under those laws–not those of another nation or entity.  We also have only ONE financial system and that is the ONLY one that should be allowed. To allow these practices to gain a foothold will result in this country being devoured from within. Remember the Texas Revolution? Remember the American Revolution? If not, I suggest that anyone unaware of what led to those should actually research what led to them.

Even with all of this there is new group of haters emerging in America and that hate based on the following things: Geographic location, which is regional bias and political haters on both left and right who are trying to force their agendas in such a way that if either side gains too much power, we could be living under a new type of apartheid system–if not a totalitarian regime in a few short decades. But no one seems to give a damn.  People are willing to conform to anyone that says what they want to hear. They will believe any false promise made, as long as they can believe it is not THEIR rights that will on the chopping block. They will feel secure as long as they are being spoon fed the load of crap that is keeping them from actually seeing that they are being used as well.

One can rest assured of one thing. Once they get what they want, they (those controlling the agenda) will go after supporters they didn’t desire to be in their little “clique” to begin with. This includes the artists, the dreamers, and those who towed the line until that line penalized them.  It all goes back to this:  Those who gain too much power are the enemies to America. There has to be a check and balance in this country to prevent that from happening–and that is slowly being eroded right before our eyes.

They are being eroded by those who, when they run out of opponents to “eat for lunch”, it is their own colleagues they will  harass, and when they either stop resisting or are silenced, they will then start on their own young. Such is the nature of this beast that is rising among Americans.  We must learn to work together. That beast is feeding off of, and encouraging the division.  It is time for citizens to sit down together and straighten this mess out.  The “divide and conquer” strategy is an old one and those who seek to divide us are doing so to keep us from working together.

WE cannot have “all or nothing”. That is not reality and people on both sides of the political fence need to sit down together and work on a new 3rd party manifesto in their own communities to address this issue and then fix this mess.  It may be what saves this nation because those in power now sure as hell won’t get the job done–that is, not without destroying those of us who know what it means to be  free and accept others as they are while allowing those who hate other Americans for various reasons to continue to unleash not only their verbal vitriol, but their violence toward each other as well in order to push their agendas upon each other…This is not the way to bring about change. It is a way to destroy our nation.

The only danger to free thinking Americans is the status-quo. This must change and our elected officials are failing the people–both parties.  They toss a crumb while they sit at the table of America like gluttons and devour the working people‘s earnings in their feasts and then try to justify this by saying it is to pay “the deficit” yet they exempt themselves from the very laws they pass upon us.  Is this the type of entity we want our children and grandchildren to be subject to? I don’t think so.

My ancestors learned long ago to never put any trust in the government. They break every treaty and they find a way to get around what they subject the rest of us to.  The sad thing is, the American forefathers and my ancestors would be very saddened to see what this nation has become today. Maybe we should take a lesson from Iceland.  Here is how they fixed their economy:

I think they should apply this here–to homeowners and to those who got duped in the student loan schemes, which has almost resulted in a new form of  “servitude”.

Nana Shudders at What May Come…

Forty Five years ago I stood in a classroom in Louisiana. I looked up at the flag that was at the top of the chalkboard near the door,  put my right hand over my heart and recited the “Pledge of Allegiance” with the rest of that class.  I remember my teacher, who seemed to be in a time warp, as her hairdo was worn up in a “beehive” type of style that day.  After we said the pledge, we sang “America the Beautiful”.  I wouldn’t know the National Anthem lyrics  until 3rd grade.

We said the Pledge of Allegiance every morning until I graduated on May 29, 1981 from Ranger High School, in Ranger, TX.  Fortunately, we were taught the meaning of the colors on the flag at an early age.  However, many did not know that originally, when the flag was adopted in 1777, there was not a “meaning” attached to those colors until the colors were defined for the Great Seal when the Continental Congress met.  The Secretary of the Continental Congress, Charles Thompson stated the following when reporting to congress about the seal:

“…”The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice…”

Eventually, many of us were taught that this is what also applied to the colors of Old Glory.

I submit now that our nation is no longer pure and innocent, represented by the white, due the greed and corruption in Washington, D.C.  No…Not Wall St.  They are only part of the problem.  The real problem lies within the nation’s capital.  This has resulted in a violation of the trust that the American People had in a system which once worked for them to ensure their freedoms,but  is now working against them in order to deny them.

This is not about the 23 executive “actions”–which translates to “orders” which congress must approve of. President Obama failed to realize that there are three people any American citizen should be able to seek guidance or services from without fear of reprisal.  Those three would be their lawyer, their doctor and their priests/pastors.  These “actions” require medical personnel to ask patients about guns in their homes and THEN report back to the government.  Does anyone see a problem with this besides me?  Roe v. Wade is even violated here.  Roe v. Wade does NOT guarantee the right to an abortion, but the right to privacy, so yes this will affect both the left and the right.  It is time for America to get its head out of the sand and stand up for what it once believed in: Freedom. TRUE FREEDOM.

I do not own a gun and most likely never will.  This is not about the guns.  This is about control. This is about your right to decide your own destiny whether you want to buy weapons or not.  To tie these measures in with the Affordable Care Act only proves that the right-wing was correct.  As I said, this will affect even the left so they need to pay attention to what I am about to say here.  Before I go into the meaning of the  red on the flag, you need to know EXACTLY what those orders say, so here is the link–and pay particular attention to #16! :

http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2013/01/16/here-are-the-23-executive-orders-on-gun-safety-signed-today-by-the-president/

There is NO reason to try to tamper with doctor/patient confidentiality.  For one, that violates the Roe v. Wade ruling which guarantees MY right to privacy.  No pun intended here, but women should be up in arms over this already.  It doesn’t matter what side of the gun issue one is on, this can be used as a two-edged sword to slice away at rights so many women before me fought hard to acquire because it will be applied at the whim of whatever party is in charge of things. Seriously. Think about this. This will be ran according to the whim of politicians, not the people,  and a few Constitutional Amendments have to be wiped out to achieve it. THAT is my problem with it.

Universal Health care should not be used to erode the rights of every American citizen.  The Constitution should not be held hostage by it either. It is time to revamp the system, everyone. It is time for a new party with fresh ideas to be put into power because the major parties only care about taking our tax dollars and furthering their own interests. They will NOT pay off the deficit with the runaway taxation they are going to support for each other and it is you, I, our children and grandchildren that will pay for this if our country continues on this course. I am also really tired of them exempting themselves from their own legislation. If it good enough for WE THE PEOPLE, it is good enough for them. Remove the perks. Remove the taxpayer funded travel expenses and $500 steak dinners–not to mention the trips to resorts when they want to run and hide at a resort rather than do the job they were paid to show up for work to do.

Now for the meaning of “red”…Some teachers say it is for blood shed to ensure freedom, but it stood for “hardiness” and “valor” when the Great Seal was created in 1777.    I will take this definition of hardiness:  Capable of surviving unfavorable conditions .  Remember the lyrics to the Star-Spangled Banner?   “…And the rockets red glare…The bombs bursting in air gave proof though the night that our flag was still there…”

Well people of America, we are under a different type of siege today.  The question is, will we and our flag survive it or will be ripped further and further apart by self-serving politicians in Washington?  Stay tuned on that one…Same bat time! Same bat channel!

Now for the blue…Vigilance, perseverance and justice… 

I submit that it is WE THE PEOPLE who deserve justice and the government needs to stop trying to further its means by exploiting the dead as well as the Constitution of the United States.  Every time a government tries to get its people behind a sweeping and life-changing reform, what is that reform usually tied to?  Children…It is true and it isn’t the first time in History this has happened. Remember a man named Adolph Hitler?  Children are vulnerable and they shouldn’t be used as pawns by politician because that is just another way to manipulate the populace. Stop them from doing that, and they’ll have to talk about the issues, rather than tying them to “the children” stir up the “emotional vote” rather than relying on logic to solve issues without jeopardizing our rights–and I am not referring to just the “right to bear arms”.  It will begin to erode others as well.  These orders already fly in the face of Roe v. Wade, yet not one reporter has bothered to address this. Why is that?  Maybe they are pawns themselves.  However, this is now no longer a question of right-wing or left–wing, gay or straight, etc…This is a question of whether or not the people on both sides can wake up and see what is being done to them. Hopefully they will and soon. “We the people” have been used and manipulated enough by politicians on both sides of the political spectrum, I think.

 

I Support The Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty

I know that with some  friends and family, this is not going to be a popular announcement, but I have decided to join the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.  Usually, I will write or talk about it but it’s time I took a public stand for what I feel is the right thing to do and blogging is simply not enough.

Furthermore, I support that every state that uses the death penalty should be required to add an option for juries to select the “life without the possibility of parole” option in all cases that capital punishment is sought by the Offices of the D.A.’s around the country.  This way if it is not going to go away, it will be assured that the death penalty will only be used in the most heinous of cases, and juries can issue verdicts they can sleep with at night.

This will also take away the political division on the issue somewhat since unless there is another United States Supreme Court ruling to the contrary, the death penalty is not going to vanish in all 50 states any time soon.  The politicians will no longer be able to say “I support Capital Punishment” to get elected in those states because they will still have it. It is the people that will limit its use with such a provision in the penal codes around the nation, and that is how it should be.

Only offering capital punishment or “life” leaves juries in a catch-22. If they don’t want to use that sentence but fear that the person could go free under current provisions for a “life” sentence (since it really doesn’t mean LIFE), they will use the death penalty. On the other hand, if given an option of issuing life without parole,  many will not vote for the death penalty–especially in some of these cases we’ve seen in Texas where much of the evidence used to convict is circumstantial.

Anyway that is all I have to say on this matter. Even  some of my family members do not agree with me on this, but that is fine. We all have to stand by our own convictions and my conscience will not allow me to remain silent any longer.  I have come to realize that taking a person’s life never eases the suffering of a family member of a murder victim. There is no closure.  Even if the killer of my aunt were caught tomorrow, it would not matter if they decided to execute him/her/them because it will never bring her back and it will not stop other murders from happening so NO, it is not a deterrent.  There was a time when it might have been but that has long since passed.

It is time to change things. Life without parole is a lot more difficult than the death penalty is for an offender. Their suffering ends but that of the survivors remains so yes I do know what I am talking about.  As for those who wish to flame me on the issue, when you go to work for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice as a qualified executioner–get back to me…80%  of those who join in on the mob mentality would never be able to take a life themselves. Anyway, that is all I have to say on this subject. Thank you for your time.

Here is the link to the coalition’s website if you’d like to check it out. They are also on Facebook. Have a great weekend.

A Day in Huntsville, TX…View on the Death Penalty…

A Day in Huntsville, TX…View on the Death Penalty….

I Cannot Hold This Inside Any Longer

What I am about to say is probably going to upset people closest to me and at this point it does not matter.  I do not believe in living a lie and refuse to be pressured into going along with a mob mentality that is prevalent in the churches and in the streets.  I am an angry woman. I am angry because nobody in this country is taking care of their families and their own affairs before they put their nose into someone else’s business.

While I agree that the Constitution should be upheld, and the SOPA and RDAA rulings are nothing but a design to help enslave Americans, it is the public that is doing the job better than our government is.  America is becoming enslaved by the divisions within itself and it’s time to give BOTH major parties the boot… You have races hating each other for the color of their skin.  Neither party works to help Americans fix that. You have groups hating each other because they believe differently and you have groups hating women for having the courage to point these things out.   Yet nobody in our body of leaders wants to work to address the issues of the divisions that are destroying this nation. When I say “you” I am speaking of America as a people but if you are a bigoted individual,  you will know who you are by the end of this post.

You have Christians hating Atheists and Atheists hating Christians…Just to note:  A Christian who hates ANYONE is not a Christian and that goes for Rev. Wright, The Westboro Baptist Church and any other nut fringed and nut led religious group we hear about. Why not drop the labels and unite as Americans long enough to deal with the more important issues at hand, like keeping our basic rights to assembly, free speech and such in tact?  As long as those rights are kept in tact, this nation will remain strong but when those rights are removed, then this nation becomes in danger of being governed by those who crave absolute power and they will use the division of the American people to get it–and believe it or not, they are doing a damned good job at this point.

If people would mind their own business, believe what they want to and QUIT TRYING to force different belief systems on each other, we’d all be better off.  I am sick and tired of religion being pushed in school under the guise of “cultural education programs”.  IF you are going to teach foreign languages, they should be electives–not requirements. Most people will never live beyond US borders by their own choice so why force them to learn Arabic, Spanish or any other language they don’t want to learn? We certainly do not force anyone else to learn our language.  Make this all elective and save some tax dollars. But wait! That might make sense.

By the same token, I am tired of those who are in the extreme atheist fringe who sue to keep those of any faith out of political life. Yes, they are out there.  If there is to be true separation of church and state, then the Atheists cannot be allowed to force agendas either because of the free exercise clause.  The Constitution never gave anyone the right to not be offended whether they are of a faith or not. Solution: Stop the lawsuits and tell people to mind their own business because both groups pay taxes, therefore they can gripe and moan about whatever they want in public, and if they want to pray in public, it’s their business. Their taxes pay for their right to do so…

Now let’s discuss the thorn in every conservative’s side…Gay marriage.  No marriages are gay. In fact many married couples I know in the conservative world do nothing but argue and gripe about everyone else and are so miserable, I tell them they should get divorced.  They get pissed off because they say it’s “a sacred vow”–but I tell them if they don’t love each other, there is no more “vow” to break because they already broke the main one–you know–to the one where they said they would  “love, honor and cherish” each other? They really hate it when I point it out, but it’s messing up their kids to stay together in a situation like that.

If a same-sex couple wants to marry and such–let them.  IF the god of the bible is true, judgment will begin with the “House of God” and that means the Christians will get theirs long before anyone else.  Why bother?  It is not your job to tell anyone how to live. God (and yes I do believe in God) gave man a free will to choose his own path.  He also did not make you judge and the sole arbiter of one’s fate.  It’s certainly not my job to do his job.  That being said, I am closing with this clip from the “Ellen DeGeneres Show”.  She hit the nail on the head.  People really need to get over all this hatred because it is destroying this country, or as I should point out, what is left of it.

People  will love this post or they’ll want to burn me at the stake for it and I do not care.  It is our children and grandchildren who will pay the price for this stupidity if people don’t knock it off in this country.  I see little appreciation from people for what our country’s founders created, and even less for those that sacrifice themselves to support it, but that’s a WHOLE new topic…Later…

Note:  I have many friends who are atheists, gays, etc…and they have no problem with my stand which is this: IF everyone is minding their OWN business and letting people be who they are, then we won’t end up putting our nose in another country’s affairs and telling them how to live because we’ll be too busy cleaning our own nation up first!  I hope it makes sense, but if  not, I’m used to it…
