Something Beautiful…

Imagine if we could only treat each other as human – as equals – wanting to help all people and not let barriers get in the way. Imagine if we sought to include rather than exclude. That’s the world I want to live in. Those are the people I want to live with.

High fives and cliques

For those who are high-fiving and celebrating the confirmation of Kavanaugh I can only shake my head.

Maybe it’s because they believe their side won. Maybe they think he’s an upstanding man – he’s not just from his comments last week. Maybe they believe he’s more qualified – he’s not. Or maybe it’s basically because they believe K will overturn Roe v Wade and side against “those homosexuals and liberals who are trying to take over” *their* country. I think it’s because they believe *their* rights are being infringed upon. Sigh.

Liberals/progressives push for rights for all people and not just a few. They/we want more inclusion rather than exclusion. We want people to be treated equal. We are tired of the patriarchy telling us to shut up.

I hate politics but I’ve embraced it. I treat others like I want to be treated every day. I’m literally hated where I live. It’s 70% voting republicans. Many businesses I patronize turn to fox news all day long. I’m truly hated but I fight hard not to hate them.

I used to be more conservative but for the life of me, I can’t see why I was like that other than it was the circle we were in just like a clique. It is hard to see out of the bubble.

While some are more interested in telling others how we should worship, how we should treat our bodies, who we can marry, and on and on I’m fighting for people who get passed over, those who are marginalized, victims of sexual abuse, fighting for better education, single payer healthcare, and a better way of life for all. I don’t see a choice. I see those cerebrating K as fighting against all of these things, except for themselves of course because they are selfish. Sorry but that’s what I see.

Note: It is my blog. I only publish comments I choose to publish. 🙂
