Crossing the Line
A long time ago, one of our favorite bloggers advised me that this blog belonged to me. I would decide what was posted. So keeping that in mind, I am crossing the line, firmly and directly and then I will step back to the Meredith you all know.
I have not been sleeping well and then I sleep far too deeply. Both are signs of the issues swirling around me. I decided if I was to be honest with all of you, I would need to do one post about something far more important to me than spanking.
I am a Patriot and love my country deeply. I have voted as a Republican and Democrat and believe an independent viewpoint leads to the best decisions when I face the ballot box. Right now, things are going out of control. We have a shameless President and a spineless Congress. We are a population not feeling secure or protected by the person who promised to do so and the same person who took an oath to uphold the Constitution. Our intelligence gathering agencies have been humiliated by a person who chooses to believe a tyrant.
The time for action in the form of protests is now at hand. The will of the people will be heard and this man at the top needs to go.
Feel free to respond but respectfully. Feel free to move on. You have a choice as well. Silence reflects acceptance of what is occurring. Silence now means you are not willing to acknowledge your own sense of privilege. Your privilege allows you to sit back and wish we would all shut up. I love my country too much to remain silent even here on this ttwd blog. I join bloggers Ronnie and Sunny. They needn't stand alone in this fight.
In case you do not know who this wonder woman is, she is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and she is almost single-handed protecting the rights of women in this country. RBG believes our bodies and the decisions concerning those bodies belong individually to each of us. I hold her dear and respect her totally.
So things are on ttwd/Jack and Meredith front are fine and moving right along. Jack and I welcome our ttwd friends here for a fun visit on Sunday. I am hoping I will sleep better.
I ask you to think about privilege, the acceptance of the differences between one another and this "notorious" great American.
I love my country!
