Thought of the Day
(or 143 days to be exact)
We are working under a madman – a lunatic and coup – a rogue Congress that does NOT serve the people, and our planet is up for grabs. The press keeps trying to make SOME sense to this madman, his nonsensical speech, his…..crazy – and there is none to be had.
Are WE all insane? Is that what was and IS wanted by the Republican National Committee? What is the purpose of driving this country, its’ laws and respect into the ground and taking the rest of the planet with it?
Moral compass and humanity is in decay and we are being herded like Lemmings off the cliff – with evidently no voice or power to our millions of voices, as we howl to the moon (while there is one).
I believe that those who are invested in, or control the enterprises of, OIL look aside for the dividends that will eventually come – but how can we continue to step back from corporate control and enterprise, and watch the rest of the planet and peoples expire through abusive greed.
The common man surely is not benefiting from investment, and certainly not the Sioux …. and we will all suffer most severely after these rotters have long gone and lived high. How can they look at their children and grandchildren and say “But WE lived large, by destroying your future?” How can any of us?
And where WHERE is our government? What are their stances on this and the other pipelines that are being laid??
So I throw this down to you legislators: STEP UP!!! Show your worth!!!!!
To all of my FB, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram followers and friends:
Hereby unfriend, untweet, unpin and unchat me……if you want to sway
my opinions and convictions on:
A) Massive gun control for assault and automatic
weapons – I believe that they do kill people. Period.
Also, If you spend more time defending your
weaponry than you do defending and assisting the
daily rights and options for disabled, homeless and
poor – or fighting bigotry
………….Please unfriend me.
B) Women’s rights and Planned Parenthood: I believe
that women have the right to own their reproduction.
Period. I believe that the organizations that uphold
these hard earned rights and medical services should
be supported and upheld.
C) That political agendas should be unmasked
(on all sides) and only work for the benefit of all people – not the wealthy –
but for the average working American. I also believe that there
will never be a true democracy without socialized medicine and
uniform drug and pharmaceutical regulations.
If it is your opinion that the thought of the day is more important than a friendship or a human’s well being – if you think that your “post” will sway ethical and moral convictions that have taken 60 years to develop………..absolutely, unfriend me. I’ll survive…. guaranteed.
In this world of blogging and Facebook and Twitter and and and…..
What are your pithy facts and opinions worth?
Who reads you? Who (outside of your adoring circle of FB fans) spends more than two seconds on “liking” your post – or questioning the quality of your life – vs. the occasional RIP or blathering on over the latest “cute” kitty – dog – horse – frog pic?
(Guilty – I confess)
And what of the latest round of political b.s.?? EVERYbody has an opinion. And… I don’t care.
What does it all amount to? Beyond the hype, the propaganda, the game show hosts (or reality series) and Fox Media flapping does one stop and question what their candidate or political party (that you would swim the shark infested waters with) will actually do for you?
Will they call you next week for tea? Will they contact the mortgage company when your husband has a heart attack and you can’t pay your bills – or you’ve lost your business – or you’ve lost your job?? Try to reach out to them then, your buds. JUST TRY.
As for me…I simply want my candidates to stand up for ME – the little person. To do what is right for me and my family. To remember what the Great Depression was – and that a vast majority of Americans are standing smack center of a new, but not improved,
depression 85 years later.
Remembering what this country was founded on:
Life, (Education), liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Vote on that. Choose to defend that.
Senator Elizabeth Warren on Planned Parenthood
U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren is a touchstone to women’s rights and middle/low income America. I stand with Planned Parenthood and every service that they provide – to every woman.
The rights that we fought for in the 70’s and 80’s are founded on sacrifice and tears. Why doesn’t the GOP propose legislation – or Angel funding – or adoption that will sponsor a mother through pregnancy and the child through college, that is if they are truly concerned with the fetus and the eventual child?
This will never happen – as it is not their concern or agenda.
I think we need to ask each and every GOP Legislator what exactly IS their agenda. I, for one, will never surrender my rights, my children’s rights or my great great grandchildren’s rights as women.
Never give up. Never surrender!
Agreed — but so did Target and Sears and most big retailers. Government must demand more in taxing large corporations, closing loopholes and requiring more in social and family responsibility from ALL retailers – not to mention many of the so called “non-profits” that make millions on the disadvantaged.
We must also look at all of the major corporations and medical product suppliers who continually pay their assembly workers and support staff $10-12 hour. Who is going after them? Banks were bailed out of the giant mess that they created in the mid 2000’s and yet they remain immovable in sharing relief to a desperate economy.
I see Walmart as the scapegoat for the bigger picture. Yes, they should be included into the solution most definitely, but they are no worse, nor better, than thousands of corporations – and our Government is giving them carte blanche.
Howling to the moon? Probably.
