Friday Firesmith – The Islamification of the Republican Americans

Friday firesmithI’m not sure when or where or how Islam became what it is in its current form. There’s a billion or so people who claim to be Islamic and, despite what you might hear, not all of them are terrorists or support terrorism. I’m fairly certain most of them wonder how on earth things got to be as screwed up as they are, and I’m equally certain there’s a good many who wonder how to stop it from getting even worse.

This has been an interesting presidential election here in America. Despite the fact that the man has said some things that are way of the charts of civilized behavior, Donald Trump continues to lead in polls that suggest that Republican Americans want to hear the language Trump is speaking.

The reality of it all is that Trump isn’t saying very much at all that makes sense but the other candidates are saying even less and Republican Americans are sick to death of their party standing for one thing on the campaign trail yet doing quite another once elected. President Obama, who the Republican Americans truly hate, has outmaneuvered the GOP lead house on the Affordable Healthcare Act and Planned Parenthood with practiced ease.

Nearly nothing that has been reported about Planned Parenthood is true but like the burning of the Koran to the Islamics, abortion is one of those hot button lose your mind and forget about reason topics that Republican Americans love to hate. Now, the Death to Planned Parenthood movement is picking up the same sort of rabid fan base as those people who shoot cartoonists for drawing Mohammad has. 

Donald Trump, in exploiting the twin weaknesses of the American election process, which would be unregulated campaign money and a grossly uninformed electorate, has inadvertently shifted an already disgruntled and rattled right wing party hard and away from middle ground on many issues, and severely to the fringe on hot button lose your mind and forget about reason issues.

I started noticing this about three months ago when reading comments on the internet. No topic was so far away from the Planned Parenthood issue that some wingnut couldn’t connect it and Obama in a single sentence. The myopic focus is just about what you’d expect from those people who think women should be stoned in public because their family pissed someone off in the village.

Colorado Springs Officer Garrett Swasey was murdered because of this mindset. An anti abortion Christian, who nevertheless put service to his community and his country first, Swasey was on the first to die when some moron brainwashed by the never ending jihadist rhetoric of the Internet and talk radio of the far right Republican Party decided to start shooting.

Now, we discover, it’s not enough to merely oppose abortion, or vote your conscious, oh no, now the Islamified Republicans have decided that there are no civilians, there are no innocents, and only murder serves the greater good.

How long before someone wearing a Trump hat flies a plane into a building?

Sunday Confession – Friends With Benefits

Sunday confession

I said I’m ok with being friends with benefits after the break-up. Truth is, the sex is fantastic, the spark and attraction will always be there, but I want more.  He made the decisions to break it off, I didn’t want to.  I’m still deeply in love and want more than sex, but I’m not ready to give the sex up either.  The heart and mind are waging war while my body waves the red flag in surrender.

FWB

Sunday Confession – True Love

Sunday confession

Many many years ago I got married because I thought it was the thing to do. I thought that I was truly in love. We have had a good marriage. There has been a lot of fun times and some bad times. About a year after we got married my wife introduced me to a relative (cousin) of hers. I knew the moment I saw her she was the one I was meant to be with. I’ve kept these feelings to myself all these years because I did not want to hurt anyone, especially the person I promised my life to. Just recently I found out (probably deep down knew all along) that the cousin felt the same way about me. Over the years we have seen each other at family gatherings and have never communicated our true feelings for each other. Now that we know how each other feels it it very hard not to see each other. We share feelings and thoughts thru email. Neither of us want to hurt the person who introduced us to each other. I am truly happy for the first time in my life when we are talking. The cousin is the most beautiful and wonderful person I have ever met. When she walks into a gathering, I get a warm feeling all over and cannot stop smiling. I thought I knew what happiness was all along. I was wrong. Now I know. I don’t know how long I can keep this secret. I am just afraid to cause anyone any pain. I have always thought I would rather be unhappy myself than hurt someone else. I don’t know anymore. Never have I had these kind of feelings before. Totally confusing. Maybe it’s time to start thinking about me for a change.

Sunday Confession – Missing My Friend

Sunday confession

Everyone around me is so damn Happy. In some ways I am also, but my best friend died this year, and all I want for Xmas is one more damn day with her. I’m not normally one of the Broken. I have a wonderful husband and awesome children, but I go off to hide every night to cry where they cannot see me. I don’t know how to fix this, and I do not know how the HELL I am supposed to like my life without her in it. There is this void in my heart that cannot be filled. I am not suicidal,  but if I didn’t wake up tomorrow? Maybe I would get to just see her again. Not gonna step out in front of a bus, but, while I don’t necessarily want to DIE, I don’t want to LIVE either. I feel like I am cheating on my Family with this pain. It’s a Catch-22. If I pretend that I am fine, I’m a liar. I go to work every day, I cook dinner every night, and I am happy taking care of them…then I wind down for the night and miss her so much.

Sunday Confession – Stop Complaining

Sunday confession

I wish everyone would stop complaining and just be thankful.  My 18 year old daughter had scholarships to every college not only in America and abroad to be a surgeon, but had a breakdown and ran away.  Have not seen her in over a year.  My wife died at 42 three weeks before Christmas.  I have no family so I had to send my 16 year old daughter to England to stay with her aunt.  So this Christmas I will be alone.  So stop complaining and be thankful that you have family and show them you love them because life is short.

Alone
