Q: What is my responsibility to my country as a citizen?
We must each play our part in supporting the democracy and it’s our job to make sure our government is doing what it’s designed and assigned to do, not just running amok, literally hell-fire rampant over the wishes of the people. Trying to govern by force from a minority of power securely tied to corruption and money. And now, with a rich real-estate “tycoon”s help they have amassed an army that they can feed verbal dribble to and watch them suck it up like they are starving. Their toxic, vile rhetoric is full of black powder that poisons the minds of those who absorb it in any form; causing them to become brainwashed and violently compliant to ridiculous “commands” from the demon himself in Florida.
He’s caused these country loving people to fall prey to the oldest trick, lie and deceive them and change it up when they least expect it. Poor people don’t understand they are disposable to these rich guys who are using them as protection pawns in a lame attempt to overthrow a country’s government – our own – to give them access and gain to wealth and power. They will then destroy their temporary army, sadly.
It’s just over 5 months since the day of the Insurrection on our capital. Five months since officer Sicknick took his last breath and died of his injuries suffered when he was beaten by Trump loving Americans with a Blue LIves Matter flag and hit over the head with a fire extinguisher.
I am personally very concerned and even scared of where our country is going of what will happen next. It causes me anxiety that the democrats haven’t made any move on the Voting Rights Act and that Manchin is holding the whole party back – now they say he’s actually doing it for several other that do not want to come forward themselves….WTF???
We need some very new, very progressive blood in our House and Senate seats. Younger democratic politicians with balls and vision for the FUTURE of ALL not just a pack of old white guys who have been riding the rail to retirement with a guaranteed government pension and are petrified of losing that…bunch of cowardly dotes.
It’s time for democrats nationwide to stand up, gather together, show strength and unity and take our country back from the white supremacists and corrupt white collar money grubbers. Time for a March for Demcracy – on our capital as well as EVERY state capital and EVERY politicians office across America.
The time is now to come together and force through a permanent protection of every American’s right to vote and to instill universal, country wide standard voting practices.
It’s time to push for full, functional, futuristic infrastructure that is envisioning today and the future, not that keeps us in 1980 perpetually stuck. The GOP wants us to revert to horses and carriages, but still buy their gas and oil so their stocks remain high. They think of NO ONE and NOTHING other than themselves. As long as THEY are paid and taken care of they will block anything that’s good for the country and promote everything that will suppress votes and be bad for the country. It’s evident in their words, their moves, their votes on different bills. I urge you to check your Senator’s voting records, understand what they have voted on and why they voted as they did…then if you are outraged CALL them!!!
The time is now to come together to protect Black lives, LGBT lives, Asian/IP LIves, Jewish lives and every other minority that makes up the American melting pot. Stop the hatred by stopping hateful practices and any practice that harms any group in the name of boosting the wealth of another.
We also have to deal with stuff that is very difficult – like what’s happening with immigration and refugees at our southern border. Everyone talks a big game about it but i have YET to HEAR ANYONE put forward a REAL PLAN with step by step items to deal with this issue, deal with the root causes and deal with the people who are AT the border properly, humanely and with love and care for them as human beings! We need to get the hell out of the middle east and put some of our power in this hemisphere where it’s needed to quell the violence and horrific attacks on civilians happening in central and south America. We have more reason for peace here than over there.
We must take care of our poor and our food insecure children here within the borders of the United States. Deal with the homeless veteran issue, gun violence, racial violence and anti-semitism. We are a kind country, but we treat our own citizens like crap sometimes. Just because someone doesn’t look like you or make as much money or have as big a house doesn’t mean that they are ANY LESS THAN YOU.
It’s time to come together and remove the corrupt politicians from the seats they are clinging to for dear life. They’ve become drunk on power and money. They’ve become disuaded by dark money and promises of power in a new regime, from a cowardly FORMER president even. It’s time to stop denying the plain, blatant truth and return our country to her place of honor and pride in the world. That will NEVER happen if we allow our democracy to be taken over by the authoritarians gunning for it so very hard right this minute across the land. They will lie, cheat, steal, torture, maim and KILL to keep their people in power and to return some of those corrupt ones we thought we were rid of. They must be stopped – by the REST of AMERICANS who are FOR DEMOCRACY and LIBERTY for ALL WE must stop them now.
I believe that so much of what citizens are allowing to happen is due to a TRUE LACK of EDUCATION of our history, of civics and of world history. So much of what is happening now can be directly shown somewhere in history, history that shouldn’t be repeated. It makes me think about all of the US history that has been suppressed and/or deleted for the most part. We just recently came to a place of public knowledge of the Tulsa Massacre of 1921 because it was suppressed and hidden by order of the whites in power at that time.
Now you can ask a 21 yr old who Condalesa Rice is and they’ll tell you it’s either a stripper or candy name. We’re not teaching proper history or civics in schools anymore. Americans really need to look at their ciriculum and do a major upgrad across the board, adding classes that reflect what their needs will be when they step off into the world on their own, go on to a 4 year college, join the military, or secure a job in the technology industry – which is growing exponentially by the day.
Parents have been trying to keep their kids away from the news too much, teenagers need to SEE what is happening and to understand WHY – as much as WE adults understand anyways. They are the next generation that will be facing dealing with the aftermath of the pandemic, the damaged population that will leave it it’s wake, plus the destruction coming from the ex-president of the USA has yet to cease – our youth WILL be forced to contend with his followers for years to come.
A good cross-section of 5th graders could form a more decent and functional government – based on equality and fairness – than many of the idiots trying to do so now. Literally half of our government is working vigorously AGAINST America, AGAINST democracy and AGAINST voter rights, women’s rights, LGBT protections and are voting FOR racism and hatred.
June 16th, 2021, Wednesday night
…I’ve been working on trying to get this finished up and posted for like a week now…just not happening because it’s not coming together like I envisioned it. I’m not sure if I should change up my writing, such as do more writing about my thought processes, my inner turmoil and celebratory successes that keep me smiling…or if I need to stay on the political writing roller-coaster which is so deep and confusing now that the constant changing of words, constant lies and denials that things were said or done when there is VIDEO PROOF of the incidents…all of this frustrates me and makes the writing more stressful and FAR LESS relaxing like it used to be for me. I write to calm my nerves, not jack them up with hatred and violence. And it’s just gotten worse and worse since the beginning of the pandemic – followed by a landslide win election that the Republican party REFUSES to admit they LOST fair and square. They were prevented from cheating this time and the result is that they lost. Now they can’t handle that fact and are like toddlers throwing a tantrum. It’s just ridiculous.
I want to redirect my thoughts and write about other aspects of life – and less about politics and wars. Yet I always struggle with what exactly to write about! I am considering a podcast in addition to this blog and have a couple of other tie-in ideas. In order to do so I need questions to answer; things I can directly address from my point of view, personal experience and the such. So, please send me some questions or topics you would like me to talk about. I
Questions and topic requests can be emailed to me at MainelyButch@yahoo.com. Please put “Blog Questions“ in the subject line so that I don’t breeze by the email! I am willing to talk about most anything, if I encounter a boundry pusher I will let you know by return email. I just really don’t want to address any more right now about politics or politicians please!
I hope everyone is safe and relaxed on this Wednesday night. I’m ready to shut it down and get some rest. Working on the yard sale we are having this Saturday has been a ton of work the last 3 days…cannot wait til it’s over, but we are having fun preparing! I just hope we make some ca$h this weekend! I just had to put my car into the shop for front brakes and a wheel bearing…cha-ching! Thus my side-hustles are in full swing!
Have a great night!
Peace and Kindness ~ MB
One thought on “Tired of this…time to change”
We will finally get to go to Maine this summer. We surely missed our yearly “fix” last fall. Greetings and sanity to you.
