Congress is finally starting to look like the people they represent

Wow! It is so good to see a Congress that is starting to look like the people they represent! But as I watch all the news about it, I can’t help but think, “Won’t it really be great one day when this will be the norm, and it is no big deal.”

Because really, isn’t . . . → Read More: Congress is finally starting to look like the people they represent

Common decency is common decency

I am learning, though slowly. Someone who doesn’t really know me accused me of being negative on social media the other day. I thought about it for a bit, and then unfriended her. It was a political post I commented on, and frankly, right now, I see very little to be positive about in politics.

I am tired of political ads

I have to admit that I am getting very tired of all these political ads, from all sides. I have said this before; I notice that others are saying it also. Perhaps we need to change to a system where one is not allowed to speak of what their opponent is going to do, but . . . → Read More: I am tired of political ads

Please vote

I really wish that everyone felt their voice counted and would vote. I understand why some people don’t feel this way. I understand that there are people out there who feel that winning is the only object, and don’t care if they have to lie, cheat, or steal votes to win. And the only way . . . → Read More: Please vote

Turn about is fair play

I am very tired of hearing this from people: “Why didn’t she come forward sooner? Why did she wait so long?” Have you been paying attention? Have you seen how people treat someone who comes forward with rape or harassment charges? It must be one of the scariest things in the world to do, to . . . → Read More: Turn about is fair play

We must remain hopeful

My heart hurts mightily. The country I have always been proud to be a part of is doing things in my name that I do not approve of. We are turning people away at the border – people who are coming here to ask for asylum because of horrific things that are happening in their . . . → Read More: We must remain hopeful

Asylum

I have mixed feelings about making this blog too political, but at this point that is what I am thinking about, so I guess I will go there.

I am having a hard time understanding that there are actually people in this country who think it is okay to separate children (even babes in arms) . . . → Read More: Asylum

Do I want to know, or do I want to be in the dark?

These days I can’t decide if I want to be an informed citizen or I want to be kept in the dark. Of course, I really do want to be informed, but I sometimes have a hard time digesting everything that is going on in our country right now.

I am absolutely flabbergasted at how . . . → Read More: Do I want to know, or do I want to be in the dark?

Protest

I really don’t want to get too political here, but I am getting pretty tired of people deciding that what NFL players are doing is disrespectful of the flag and veterans. This was never about disrespecting the flag. These people are doing what they are doing in order to draw attention to something that is . . . → Read More: Protest

What is going on here?

What is going on here? People are re-writing history to be what they wish it were, rather than what it really was. Someone says things that are reprehensible – or at least they would have been a couple years ago – and people still think he is worthy of being president. People put their faith . . . → Read More: What is going on here?
