------------You are mind friend........
But, 'ease off' from what, exactly?
My reality? Yours? Or just to try not offend anybody in any place?
That does not work for me.

My party or lack of same just lost the last election,, if you did not notice.
And that, grieves me dearly.

Not because me party lost and I am reaping sour grapes.? Or more because I weep for my country?

Now, what is it that nobody wants to disagree with me about?

Come back, red rider.

That's just cause Republicans chased away too many voters and cause Democrats ran a better ground game to get voters.

Carville: GOP routed by reality

In short the GOP stepped on way too many toes, reality bites.

Oh, this is sooooooooooo going to get moved to Politics, but still I feel compelled to respond.


People should vote for what's in their best interests,...

I am determined to vote AGAINST what is in my personal best interest, when in comes to securing a better life for others.

Eric and I were never lucky enough to have children. Should I vote AGAINST taxes that might benefit public education? That would benefit me.

The lucky birth lotto happened to place me in a stable and comfortably resourced family. Should I then favor policies and politicians who work to eliminate inheritance taxes? That would benefit me.

I was fortunate to have been born to parents who were highly educated, who valued education and who worked hard to fully finance the college and graduate studies of me and my three siblings. Should I sail blithely though life thinking that people can succeed in this country without the many social, cultural and financial "hands-up" I have enjoyed? Shouldn't I rather put my money and my votes towards trying to level the playing field in this country?

Would you have me change parties, my friend?

As I walk through life, I hope to promote social justice through my words, through my actions and through my votes.

Angela, that was a heartfelt and honest post in many ways, and I salute and respect you for it. Gosh, even an accolade from the Kittyman. Eric is one lucky man, but I'm sure he knows that as well as we do. You just keep on being you, we luv you for it :-)

There once was a guy who loved his kitten
He was chastised for what he had written
He authored many words
with too many turds
Until finally they'd had enough and he was smitten

Some fellow named "Guy"
Writes verse that is wry
Shields barbs with his poetic flairs

I hope he gets wise
Picks on someone his size
I challenge Sir Guy, if he dares

Cafe over yonder
Where happy folk wander
We happen to "poetry slam"

Some day, when life's stable
I hope to to disable
His pen, and a new place it cram...
