This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
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.
