What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

I can’t believe the childish bullshit going on in today’s politics. Seriously childish! So your candidate lost. Big deal. That’s how it works. The people vote. Someone wins, and someone loses. You don’t cry, belly-ache, and moan when you lose. You take it like an adult. Gracefully. I’ve seen Elementary School kids behave with more grace and maturity in school elections than I’ve seen amongst political candidates in a very long time.

Oh, I can just hear the Trumpers moaning about how the Dems didn’t accept the vote and went all-in after Trump. Please. Don’t get me started. I can sit here for an entire week listing all of the absolutely UNacceptable (and sometimes illegal) bullshit Trump did and said and still not list it all. If Trump would have been a Democrat, the Republicans would all have aneurysms trying to take him down. It was obvious (and still is) that Trump is an unacceptable candidate for the Presidency.

Let’s not forget those so-called adult candidates. You can’t claim fraud or cheating just because you lost. You don’t act like a sore loser. You take your loss like an adult. They think that if they lose there must be some kind of conspiracy! Give me a break. Some of them tell their voters that they “can’t trust the vote” even before the election. Really? Then why should they even vote? And why the hell are you running if you can’t trust the vote? I wish these people would just grow up! If they’d just go away would be even better.

Since Republicans have control of the House now, they’re all about investigating Hunter Biden, impeaching the President (for what I have no clue!), and Merrick Garland, as well. Some say they want to fix the economy and solve other problems…but they never say how they’re going to fix it. They don’t have a plan. They just spout bullshit they think their constituents will believe.

I never thought I’d see such a circus in my lifetime. Integrity is lost and brains are scarce.

What the hell is going on in this country? 

Paul Pelosi is attacked in his home, Nancy Pelosi’s life is threatened, and it gets turned into a conspiracy theory. Political views should be set aside and this event condemned but instead the attack has been mocked and ridiculed. So much hatred in this country. It’s disgusting.

Kanye, you’re a real piece of dog…no, wait. Doggy poo is too good for you, you antisemitic asshole. I hope you lose all of your endorsements. Go, Addidas!

Kari Lake dares the NFL to withdraw the Superbowl from Arizona. What a joke. What does she think she’s going to do if they do? What the hell is wrong with these right-wing nut jobs?

Marjorie Taylor Greene says she’s talking with Trump about being his running mate. Good. They can both go to jail at the same time. 

Voter intimidation is against the law. Armed individuals in tactical gear were hanging about at a ballot drop box in Arizona. They should have been arrested. Leave people alone and let them vote! If there’s going to be fraudulent voting it will be those who are desperate for the MAGAt Republicans to win. MAGAt – that was NOT a typo. See what I did there? 

It seems to me that if you’re innocent or if you have nothing to hide, then why would you plead the Fifth? “The mob takes the Fifth,” Trump said at an Iowa campaign rally in September 2017. “If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?” How many times has Trump himself invoked the Fifth Amendment? 

Also, why would you refuse to testify if you’ve been issued a subpoena? If you’re innocent or if you have nothing to hide, then why? If I refused to comply with a subpoena, wouldn’t I be held in contempt? Perhaps even jailed or fined? Then the same should happen to those politicians, advisors, etc., who refuse. No one is above the law!

While Biden is not doing the most exemplary job as POTUS, inflation is not his fault! Inflation is GLOBAL. Gas prices are high everywhere, not just in the US. Food shortages are also not his fault. 

What’s on your mind this week? 

What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

Oh, so many things are eating at me these days. It seems the state of this country is in the toilet. Everything is such a mess! It’s exhausting and I know I’m not alone in feeling the way I do. Here’s a quick run-down of What’s Eating Aunt Debbie:

  1. You’d think the damn police would be on their best behavior these days and following procedure, to-the-letter, to protect themselves and their department from bad publicity and lawsuits. But no. More police shootings occur. More wrongful deaths happen. Unnecessary violent treatment on routine traffic stops. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! You don’t need to draw your gun on a routine traffic stop. You don’t need to shoot an unarmed person! There is no need for excessive force when you’ve already got the suspect on the ground and handcuffed! You do NOT need to shoot a man in the back!
  2. Joel Greenberg, Seminole County, FL tax collector faces a total of 33 federal charges…including sex trafficking, fraud, and bribery. What the hell is wrong with people these days? Give them an inch, they take a mile. LOCK HIM UP! What scumbag will have that position next?
  3. Matt Gaetz. Where to start? The investigation into Greenberg led the feds to Matt Gaetz, who faces charges of sex trafficking and sex with a minor. Gaetz reportedly asked then-President Trump for a blanket pardon. Who the hell does that? Requesting a blanket pardon tells me all I need to know about someone. Another scumbag in politics. LOCK HIM UP! 
  4. Many people, when asked why they have a problem with the LGBTQ Community, they will say, “that way of life is against my religion.” That’s ridiculous. Their lifestyle doesn’t have a damn thing to do with you. If GOD thinks it’s a problem then let GOD take care of it! Here’s a thought: If God created everyone, then he also created every single gay, lesbian, trans etc., person in the world. Maybe God created them the way they are. Maybe it’s all a part of God’s plan. Maybe God is trying to teach us all something! Pay attention!

Well, that sums up the bullshit that’s clouding my brain this this time around. I’m sure more will come next week! What’s eating you these days?

If you don’t like what I have to say that’s your prerogative. This is my blog and I’ll express my opinion as I please. Just remember, I know how to delete comments and ban people from my blog/page

 

A Few Thoughts

My faith in humanity has been restored…well, mostly. We have much work to do!

I’ve lost a lot of friends in the past 4 years. Not because of a difference of opinion, but because I was berated and ridiculed for mine, or told I was wrong, or that I just didn’t know something. I will not ever tolerate that shit again. I still have a few Republican friends who are mature enough to express their opinion without tearing down someone else’s. I don’t care about another person’s political affiliation. I care about their actions and their words. Trump has brought so much ugliness out of people and has done so much damage. Regardless of anything good his base thinks he’s done, he’s done more damage than anything else. It’s time for that to end and for us to try to heal this broken country’s heart.

I was sitting in front of the tv when the news broke of Biden’s win. Tears of joy, I tell you! I know that Joe Biden is not the answer to all of the problems in this country anymore than Trump was the answer, but I know that Biden has enough intelligence to listen to scientists and other experts in their fields in order to make decisions for our country. Will he make mistakes? Definitely. He’s human. Will he lie and spin the truth every single time he opens his mouth? No. He has more integrity than that and I have hope… For the first time in 4 years, I have hope for this country!

I’ve not written in so long it was difficult for me to write this post, but with some practice (and some healing) I will get back to my old self again! I hope you’re all doing well. Please be kind to one another! 

Peace & Love,

Want Respect? Show Some….

I am not a political person. I am not a religious person. I have my opinions and I have my beliefs. Just as you have your own beliefs and opinions. If you want me to respect YOUR opinions, then you must also respect mine. Keep it to yourself if you can’t be respectful. Simple as that.

When I say I am not a religious person, that doesn’t mean I’m not spiritual. I have certain beliefs and I choose to keep my beliefs to myself. Why? Because my beliefs are my personal choice. That makes them personal and I keep personal things to myself. I wish everyone else would too. I believe everyone has the right to his or her own beliefs but that doesn’t mean that they need to share. They don’t have to take every opportunity available to tell people all about it and push their beliefs on others.

(That’s the biggest problem with social media. Everyone feels the need to tell everyone how they feel or what they believe….. That’s a blog post for another day!)
