I seem to be getting up on the wrong side of the bed lately and falling into various arguments. For one i had a personal issue at home to deal with,got into a huge scrap and ended up at Confession.Now that the scrap is behind us there is still a problem.The words cannot be taken back. I can only hope for healing.For myself included; losing my temper that badly and not having more control over my mouth was a sure sign work needed on this end.
For another,i keep bumping into what is known as liberals,usually huge Obama supporters. Here i take a slightly different view.i kind of get the people who voted for Obama the first time around. Ok,it was a historical vote. The first black President in our history.
Terrific. I wish they had also asked what kind of person Obama was because there are some white people I would never vote for.Obama could have been the first purple President and i would never have voted for him and the chances of ever having a purple President are slim to none. What truly amazed me were the Catholics who voted Obama and the evangelicals who stayed home; they may as well have cast their vote for Obama anyway. Obama ran against Bush although Bush was out of office.He surmised how many people loathed Pres Bush.It was a winning strategy.He KNEW it would work. People voted Obama as the anti Bush President.It’s been all Bush’s fault ever since(or Fox news,or some office in Cincinnati’s fault etc).
Oh how i wish the American people had been smarter than this.I ran into Obama surrogates too-every single one of them accused me of being racist.Didn’t know me from a hill of beans but that’s the tactic they used. They were also told to get in our faces-they did.
That’s the first time around. How on earth could they fall for him the 2nd time around?
You’d think they’d have wised up by now.Liberals are another story. They have no problem with Obama and his policies. Some think he’s not moving fast and far enough but they’ll back him anyway if push comes to shove.
Do they make me angry? Yep. They support policies we never had the debate over. The American people are now expected to tolerate anything and everything. We’re a totally divided country-which Obama likes incidentally-because we haven’t had the discussions we needed to have. When the Potus can’t implement a policy through law or EO he gets it through the courts stacked with activist judges who think THEY can make law. He gets them through other agencies of the leviathan government. The tentacles are so far out and so wrapped into every day life now you can’t even see them.Not at first anyway.Not until there’s an IRS scandal where the over reach and unlawful entry of the arms of the government hit hard enough that people have to fight back.
You can’t tell me the Obama administration isn’t fully behind the ‘gay agenda’ and you can’t tell me they don’t have one.
You can’t tell me that the Obama administration isn’t fully behind attacking the Catholic Church.
You can’t tell me Obama would just as soon do away with any and all opposition. Liberals are hell bent on silencing other voices.
They don’t like Fox news because it doesn’t fall in line with the Obama administration. It actually does its job. Does it make me angry? You bet it does.
Nixon should have had the propaganda machine of the media Obama has today. I don’t hate Obama,k? I don’t hate people with same sex attraction. I don’t hate minorities. I don’t hate anyone.I hate what is going on in our country.Strangely the liberals won’t like it if a conservative candidate is elected Potus with a conservative Congress and actually uses the powers that Obama has given the executive office. How would they react if the IRS turned the targeting on liberal groups when the time comes? Do we really want to go down this road? If the ideas of liberalism are really worthy and actually worked they could stand on their own merits.You mean to tell me they have to be forced? You mean to tell me that opposing views need to be silenced? If that’s the case maybe there’s something wrong with liberalism?
Wait till the shoe is on the other foot. Yep,it can happen.
My advice to liberals; wake up and smell the coffee people.
Maybe we should get our own vocabulary too.
homophobia, islamaphobia…if you disagree with a liberal pov you automatically have one of these invented phobias.
Let me tell something to you-they’re made up words for a non existent condition.
Ok,i did get out of the wrong side of bed today. I got up to a ‘drop attack’ after one pretty good day yesterday. We’re under a little stress re our home buying. I’m under other stress because i haven’t heard from my brother lately. I had the thought he’s upset with me again.
BTW. Stress does not cause a ‘drop attack.’ It’s just a coincidence. You can have a drop attack at any given time and the temptation is go to the ER. I won’t do that unless i absolutely have to.On the best of days a drop attack can get you.(Mennerie’s).
As for the home;it’s perfect for us but if it’s meant to be it will be. IF not,it won’t. As for my brother;nothing i can do. I honestly don’t understand why this ill will goes on and on or it could be he’s very busy due to the time of year. Yes, it was my fault.Yes,i did something incredibly wrong and his being upset with me is perfectly justified. I can’t change it. I regret it but i can’t undo it.
Does it seem as if we’re all waking up to a battlefield every single day? I asked my hubbs what he thought would be a good blog topic sometime? He suggested i write about the high cost of goods these days,especially groceries. People are making choices between paying bills and buying food. He doesn’t look at the big issues of the day but he has a point that everyone is struggling with making ends meet.I may give his topic a few words later this week.For now, I would appreciate comments. How do YOU deal with these kinds of disagreements? Do you engage? Avoid? Do you get angry or just agree to disagree?
How do you deal with people who are so angry it does seem like they hate you? I know we pray for people we have problems with and we pray for ourselves because it may be us(and not them). How do you then go about carrying the burden?
For now folks i have to take off and head for the recliner(put head back). Need to get on my feet a tad,hope the vertigo settles down and work on the statue again.It’s almost done. Next week we’ll have the plaster to do the final steps. I will actually have it done before the month of May-the Month of Mary-ends and take it over to Mary 🙂 Very excited!!
I have to be reminded OFTEN.
