Bad behavior

If you're from the state of North Carolina, this would be the appropriate time to feel a bit of embarrassment that you voted this man into office. His so-called "apology" (accompanied by statements such as "I've been spit at and assaulted") falls far short of being genuine. It's more in the strain of I'm sorry I got caught. Watch this video and you will see that this college student was both polite, and appropriate in his behavior. Is this who we have making those all-so-important decisions that will have repercussions for generations to come? A bunch of bullies that feel no need to control their impulses (can anyone say assault here?). My kids know better than to behave this way.

*INTERESTING to note: In spite of this video getting many views (it has made the news in many media outlets) youtube is not adding any additional numbers to the views. I'm usually not into conspiracy theories...but give me a break. I'm not buying the technical difficulties here. No doubt there are those (who will remain un-named of course) who would rather it be thought this is NON-news. If youtube "fixes" it, and the numbers are adjusted, I'll admit I was wrong. Maybe ;)

I have once again found my voice

There was a part of me that was just a little bit intimidated after the results of the last major election in our country. While I suppose it's natural that those moments in time cause one side or another to makes claims of doom and change (does that last word ring a bell anyone?), I have to admit that my own feelings were less than positive.

Talk is cheap. And there are some claims too impossible to deliver.

Well, I didn't want to stick my neck out too much. After all, once your words are on the world wide web (is it actually called that anymore?), they're out there for all to see. And you can't exactly take them back. Not to mention the fact that they can be used against you. Need I say more?

Well, I have found my voice once again. I am more than disappointed. I'm downright irritated. Watching the Politicians of today (from both sides I might add) messing up things for our future generations is infuriating.

Not to say that I have all the answers. But it's very apparent that these same politicians don't have the best interests of their fellow Americans (especially the tax-paying ones) in mind. It just makes you wonder whose interests are taking up that space?

That's all for now. If you think a Christian, homeschooling mom should keep her nose (not to mention her blog) out of things, stopping by here may not be the best idea. Everyone has their interests, and this happens to be one of mine. Hiding my head in the sand won't make a difference, but maybe adding my voice will.

To be continued..:)
