Fun Monday

My Bestie is hosting Fun Monday.  Here is what I feel.  I have learned in my short life even though you think you know someone, politics and religion can rip you apart. So I really refuse to talk to anyone outside of my immediate family about my views. 

I know what party I'm voting for and what way I'm voting on the State Questions. 

I just don't get all the hoopla.  I don't care how much of their own money a Politician has put into their campaign, does it make them a better person, and are they going to fight more for my rights as an American?
Doubt it.

I'm so glad tomorrow is the day, maybe the phone calls will stop, and the commercials will stop, the mud slinging will stop(this one I doubt will ever happen.)

I was so applaud to find out one of our candidates for Governor, accused the other one of playing the "mommy and wife card". What the hell?  Are you not allowed to be proud of being a wife and mother now?  It's upsetting to me to see what things come down to.  I haven't even lived my life yet.  What about our grandparents, think about how much they have seen.  It scares me sometimes to think about what this great country will be like in a few short years, when my son is old enough to vote.

A quote from my Preacher yesterday.  "Get out and vote early, and often."


  1. Someone's always accusing someone of playing one "card" or another. And, if you think about it, we all fall into a set of roles. It's not like you can be a mother and have it not affect you or shape your thinking. The same holds for being a retiree, or a business owner, or a student, or an unemployed person, etc. We all have mindsets.

  2. Our preacher told us if he voted he'd be deported. They just moved to the US from Australia, though. I think all the media hype just has everyone confused all over the place.

  3. I am so glad that you played along with Fun Monday! Hopefully we will get some really good new recipes next week. :)

  4. yep - always playing a game rather than taking a stand. how sad.
