The Rogue Speaks:
Here it is March and I haven't posted anything warm since January, when it was actually pretty cold in Brunswick. It's hard to think of warm-hearted things when our country is so politically fractured and there is just so much at stake. I have many friends around the globe, and they are just wide-eyed in amazement at what has happened to America in the last few months. They think this country is crazy! No, really!! They do!! Their countries have looked up to ours for so, so long, and to see what certain disgusting characters are getting away with here just leaves them stunned.
The bizarre characters alone are bad enough, but the media??? I hold the media in large part responsible for the way at least one candidate has moved up into the danger zone. We have him shoved down our throats on a daily basis, several times a day, for the sole purpose of ratings and advertising dollars. Not one single media outlet supports the guy as a candidate, yet they continue to let him come into our homes, talk trash, insult people, blatantly lie (especially about not knowing who David Duke is!) and make us get throw-up in our mouths. Yet they don't censor him, and in fact encourage him, all for money. Shame on them!!! Shame!! They went too far and now the train is totally out of control and speeding toward a collision of biblical proportions.
The Republican party is in a world of hurt right now, because they, like the media, didn't plan well for the way things are turning out. When things started to really get out of hand, they just sat back and watched, and made him sign a pledge. They should have washed his mouth out with soap early on, and kicked him to the curb, but they didn't. Another big mistake was moving up voting (Super Tuesday), and switching around the order in which certain states hold their primaries. The RNC decided to do this before the last election because they wanted Romney as their candidate, and the move would give him the numbers he needed to win the nomination and shut out the other contenders. They have the big old southern states, the bible belt, voting March 1, along with Texas. Lot of ultra-conservatives there--lot of evangelicals, racists, anti-Semites, and a whole lot of "poorly educated." Those folks don't always know what their candidate is actually saying, since he doesn't know how to finish a sentence, but they are just glassy-eyed at how rich he is. I think THEY think he's gonna make them rich, too! By moving the voting up in that particular group of states, they have given Satan a chance to garner enough votes to claim victory (at least in his own eyes) as the Republican nominee. Sad, isn't it!! "The love of money is the root of all evil."
I worry about this situation A LOT!! Probably too much for my own good, but I have grandchildren and I don't want the country to implode before they have had a chance to live a good life. I'm pretty warm-hearted when it comes to my grandchildren! There!! I did it!! I got "warm-heart" in before the end of this post!!! Now go visit our sweet Jenny and read more entries!
p.s. I live in a beautiful area of coastal Georgia. I love the live oak trees and the palmettos, I love the sand dunes and the soft air that is just so great for my skin! I love walking on the beach, collecting shells and taking photos. We always dreamed of living here. What we failed to calculate into our dream of Eden was just how many ignorant, uneducated, racist dunces actually live here as well. They have kind of seriously gotten on my last nerve since yesterday when a vicious, hateful, lying con-man won the GOP primary. So today we went to play golf on Jekyll Island, on one of the courses that winds itself through those live oaks, pine trees, and palmettos, and across streams with sunlight filtering through the deep shadows. I didn't get cold out there. In fact, I was WARM-hearted in all that beauty. A nice break!
