The last year has been one for the Record Books, as many people are saying. We have all absorbed
and watched with "shock and awe" the political antics. Daily, weekly, minute by minute, it seems
one thing or another has happened to shake me, as well as many others to our core. What a horrible example for our children and grandchildren.
seems to me after the announcement last night that the man in the White House wants a Military
Parade, that I have reached that point. I sincerely hope those who can stop this insanity are at
the same point.
It is wrong in more ways then one. The cost, the stupidity, the absurdness of a man who was a draft dodger and who respects no one, wanting this makes me nuts! It is an insult to our military, to our
citizens and to our country.
The fact that so many important programs to help our citizens have been cancelled due to a "lack of funds" such as Meals on Wheels, help in Puerto Rico and on and on and on, but he wants a parade
that would cost millions and millions and millions of dollars, it defies common sense. Of course he could use all that excess money raised for his inauguration - $100 million that most of was not used - to pay for his own parade! Ahh, but I hear he has set it aside for his "defense" fund. Too bad.
This morning when I read the article, the funniest part were the comments by the citizens of the USA! That and the tweet by DT,Jr. of a photo of his father with a rapper which is supposed to
prove that he is not a racist. Made me laugh out loud.
Enough is enough. We are losing all the values, the traditions and the esteemed integrity of our
country, for what?
It is scary, first of all. It is infuriating, second of all. And then there is the lack of respect at this moment for our country and its government. How could this have happened so fast? Where are
the checks and balances that we were all raised to believe in? It is beyond astonishing.
I don't care what party you're in or if you're not even in a party, we as citizens of the USA should unite to stop this horrible debacle that is occurring right before our eyes.
If you don't agree that this is a debacle and you are angered by this post, feel free to stop reading
my blogs. My red hair is flaming. I feel like Joan of Arc and I'm ready to slay some "dragons".
My answer, "VOTE VOTE VOTE".
