In which i have an opinion

opinion

I don’t usually write opinion pieces on this blog, mostly because I don’t feel like dealing with the bullshit that comes with opinion pieces.

 

Also because I’m not a person that usually feels the need to express my opinion to others because to each their own is my typical philosophy.

 

However, last week I do want to address the Supreme Court. First, I’m thrilled about the Affordable Care Act aka Obama Care. That is the only way that Keely, who will turn 26 in October and come off our insurance, will ever get insured.

 

All the haters out there either don’t need good insurance or don’t care if they have it. People like Keely, with a billion preexisting conditions, would have a hard time even getting healthcare without it.

 

Also, gay marriage: YEAH! I believe that people should be able to love who they want, marry who they want and BE who they want. As long as you’re not pushing your beliefs on me then I’m fine.

 

I don’t understand all this crap about it’s against my beliefs. I don’t think that two men or two women being married has one iota of affect on my marriage. And if you are worried about your kids then perhaps a CONVERSATION about openness and being tolerant would be in order.

 

Seriously, if we can’t even be more tolerant to each other then what hope do we have?

 

I can’t actually believe how awful some of the “dissenters” on the Supreme Court were in their writing.

 

Also, the confederate flag. I think it should be in museums and all this crap about “heritage” and my ancestors is ridiculous. I mean, millions of Germans died during WWII and you don’t see them displaying the swastika!

 

And yes, they’re the same. They represent armies that were systematically putting down certain segments of the population.

 

Anyways, that’s a bit of my two cents. There’s more but I don’t feel like dealing with it.

 

Except it’s a fact that racism is rampant and we are all guilty of it, even those of us who think we’re not. I don’t excuse myself; I just try to remain conscious of it.

 

Ok, bye.

    Not that this is meant to contradict what you said about the Confederate flag… the swastika is illegal in Germany. It’s a punishable offense to display it. The German radical right falls back on substitutes from other periods in German history. It will be interesting to see whether the current southern sympathizers come up with the same idea. There were plenty of flags used by the Confederacy.

      Yeah. I’m curious about what all these states will do

    As a Canadian, I have “free” health care but I pay for it with higher taxes but I wouldn’t change a thing about it. I have 2 chronic diseases and really like knowing that I can go to my doctor or local hospital at any time and not have that bill over my head. As a pensioner that is important. And same sex marriage, nice that the US has joined the 21st century. It has been legal in Canada here for 10 years and the world has not stopped spinning and “normal” marriages haven’t been made meaningless. The flag issue to me doesn’t mean anything but I think some people are trying to be too politically correct sometimes. But then again, I don’t have to live with it. Great blog.

    Opinions are great….they open up discussion. It’s when people start telling you your opinions are wrong because they are different from theirs that the problem arises. Opinions are personal. They don’t all need to be the same. That’s what makes life interesting.

    agree with it all. And opinions do matter and some are better than others because some have to do with the greater good. And the greater good is the the most reasonable way to think. :)
