I honestly can’t write today. I can’t ignore the elephant in the room, but I can’t stand for another minute to hear people argue with rationality.
I can’t write how disgusted I am without being called unpatriotic. I can’t write how proud I am of Obama without being told I’m being hoodwinked by the media. (I AM the media?) I can’t write how offensive it is as a “regular” American to be told it’s unfair the military has to take pay cuts while millions of us “regular” folk around the world are completely unemployed. I can’t write how absurd I think it is to put the troops before the larger percentage of the country (the homeless, the sick, the jobless, the hungry) without being told I’m un-American. Maybe wanting to sacrifice some of my own for the good of others IS un-American these days. Canada, are you hiring?
Today, all I can do are my own thing. If I dare open my mouth, I am sure to be attacked by an unintelligent fool or under-informed person or a too-conservative psycho.
Sidenote: just because I’m letting this go without writing a diatribe of terrifying proportions doesn’t mean I’m not going to post this…
