More personality s'il vous plait
I received an email today...I get these from time to time from another blog I have. I received another one from someone looking for a soup recipe who was incensed to find not soup but partisan crap when he clicked on my link. I almost wrote him back asking if it would be partisan if I were campaigning for Bush. I don't have time for the pain so I hit delete.
Back to the email I received this morning. The writer wanted to know why I didn't write more of my personal thoughts. I've been thinking about it and have come up with a couple of reasons. This is an issue because I've been wondering if I will continue this blog after the elections and if so, what will I do with it?
I'm a loner. I have evolved into this over the years for one reason or another. I enjoy other people but only on my terms. I feel no obligation to open my door if you knock. My sense of self is not hinged on whether I am liked or not. It was not always this way. As I said, I have evolved into who I am today.
I started this blog to counter the Bush administration. As an American living in France I was and am increasingly outraged at what I see happening there. For awhile I would write scathing blogs venting my anger. But, over time I have seen that too many just don't care what is happening in the US or the world around them.
That George Bush is still in office and may even be re-elected boggles the mind. This has nothing to do with being a Republican, Democrat, Independent or any other party affiliation. It's not about who's a better debater. It's not even about whether George did his time in the Guard.
It's about this man falsely tying Iraq and Saddam to al-Qaida and the attacks of 9/11 and in doing so being responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent men, women and children.
This is it in a nutshell. I post like so many others whatever incriminating evidence I can find to show the corruptness of this administration but what should be causing people, even Republicans, to remove this man from office is stated above.
So, being a loner is one reason for my lack of personality on this blog, being totally disgusted with humanity is another.
Where is the outrage at this President? Don't speak to me of Christian values in light of this President. He has none and if you support him you have obviously forgotten yours.
Don't speak to me of stem cells, abortion, and homosexuality in light of Christian values. Jesus Christ has nothing to say about these issues and homosexuals were very much a part of the world he lived in. But, he had much to say about taking care of the poor, sick and imprisoned the very things Bush policies do not take into account.
I have been here fighting my own war against injustice. Whether I will stay here after the election I have no idea. That this blog will change it's format to a more personal one is doubtful. I enjoy looking at other blogs and reading what people are saying. Only now and again do I have the desire to enter the conversation.
