To Salute or Not to Salute, That Is the Question

My country tis of me

Sweet land of hackery

Hack into emails, I don't care

Does it get me my candidate?

In politics, all's fair

My country tis of me

That's how I roll

Get dirt from an enemy?

Goodness, how droll

I would never do that

Not in 5,000 years

Why just look at my record

Least that which appears

I'm the model of decency, virtue and strength

Just look at my fingers!

Look at the length!

Oh my dear fellows

You bore me with fact

The only thing matters

One knows how to act

Never admit things

Deny and deny

They cannot dispute you

The truth is a lie

Its fake news and politics

That's all that it is

The sooner you learn this

You'll get far in my biz

Now let us not tarry

Dear dotardy chaps

We have countries to rob!

Jeeves....get me my maps

According to Some, A Criminal



The Man and His Country

He served with distinction in Vietnam, receiving the Bronze Star, two Navy Commendation Medals, the Purple Heart and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry as an officer in the Marine Corps. Returning stateside, he resumed his education at the University of Virginia Law School, serving on the Law Review and earning his J.D. in 1973.

Michael Sand is a former Green Beret, and comes from a family of military servicemembers. As he wrote on Facebook, his father was a World War II veteran fighting fascism, he served in Vietnam fighting communism, and his son is currently serving in the Army fighting the Taliban and terrorism.

"Three vastly different enemies, but enemies who shared one common trait," Sand writes. "ALL of them stifle free speech. All of them bully, degrade and terrorize those who hold opposing views and who peacefully express them."

And then the ultimate act of terror: A car accelerated down a narrow street in the city’s quaint district near the Downtown Mall, a street lined with peaceful protesters, and slammed into the crowd, leaving one dead and nearly 20 injured.

The hatred, the bigotry – the bloodshed. How could this be happening at the home of my beloved alma mater and in a progressive city that boasts a warm and inclusive environment?

The Big Switcheroo

The Democratic Party started in 1828 as anti-Federal faction and grew to become one of the leading political forces of the United States.

The GOP started in 1854 – few years later than its Democratic counterpart – to stop slavery, which was viewed as unconstitutional.

The world is a glorious mismatch of all kinds of things.....let us not mistake one for the other.

There is such a thing as black. There is such a thing as white. You can mix them up and get gray.....

But the black and white still remain.

I like to consider it as the words to this old saying goes: "To be kissed by a fool is stupid. To be fooled by a kiss is worse."

Oh Marge, your time is short.

Engaged in what? Seditious conspiracy to take down the USG? Oh my……

Like Trump tweeted, “Jan 6, be there. It’s going to be wild!”

And you can’t erase what’s on the internet……I mean….they did it right out in the open. Just like Russia, 2016. Meeting with Kysliak…..Sessions, Flynn, all of em! Kysliak and Lavrov in the Oval Office! Laughing and joking!

And now it’s Facebook time in the barrel… and Twitter just admitted it gives more clout to rightwing media. And Facebook says it feared trumps anger……

And Trump met with Zuck in the white house… was all out in the open!

Right in front of our noses.

Meeting with a Russian SPY in trump tower! C’monnnnnnn

Oh well. The voters did you in, in 2020. They stood in looooong lines, in the rain, Covid or not. DeJoy shenanigans or not.

WE knew what it was, though you still can’t see.

And Biden knows more than you can imagine. Buckle up. YOU are in for a ride. The rest of us already know.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 23, 2021:

Current Iranian sanctions were imposed by USA in 1987 (Reagan) when Iran supported terrorism against shipping. Were expanded in 1995 (Clinton) & in 2006 (W Bush). Trump has circumvented these with Turkish bank, and Trump properties in USA It is money laundering crime for a NATION.

When Putin invaded Ukraine in 2014 and annexed Crimea, Obama slapped biggest sanctions in US history against Russia. Trump then worked with Putin to circumvent these, partly with Putin's bank with offices conveniently in Trump Tower.

Weisselberg 3 is a Federal investigation into Trump breaking sanctions on behalf of Russia. This we knew to expect.

Giuliani 3 - just now we find out the Turkey connection is IRANIAN money. A DIFFERENT case of sanctions busting, now for Iran. Trump ASSISTED IRAN (with Giuliani)


This is real shit. Anyone who helped him knowing what he was doing is guilty of treason against the USA.

I can think of a lot of such people. And many are sitting in the US gvt.

And this is international crime of such proportion, i see why it’s called the crime of the century……and it was decades in the making……

Salute to Bob Levinson. And RIP. Your hard work and dedication has paid off.

And I’m not even mad they had to sacrifice Hillary……they had to let this plan come to fruition….catch them in the act, you might say.

Man, don’t mess with the feds. They have one thing that many of us lack: patience.

The mob has patience, too.

But gd……do not try and mob the freaking USG!

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 22, 2021:

Biden says America is committed to helping Taiwan against any possible China attack.

This is the truth, so when magops start lying about “China Joe”, you’ll know it.

“Police said bystanders saw a rape on the train but failed to stop it. The DA now says that didn't happen.”

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 22, 2021:

This is why it’s called systemic racism. Those who run the system are racists…..get it?

Oh, and this is going on now, 2021.

Also, we see things most of us want always held up in the senate…..there’s a reason for that, too. And oddly enough, Trump told you about it! Back when he was conning you that he was a “man of the people…one of you”

It’s really not that hard to understand. Money talks, the people can walk.

"The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence."

Remember, Trump told us that he buys politicians to make policies that benefit him? Right, and so what’s the first thing he does after he gets in? Says, “You’ll get your tax cuts”, to wealthy patrons in a Manhattan eatery.

And, the carried interest loophole is still there….something Obama wanted to get rid of, and Trump said he did, too…..

And you can bet most of us citizens do, as well. But there it sits.

“Critics of the US Senate say that for years now, the chamber has not been a field of fair democratic play, paralyzed by its own internal rules and insulated from the popular will by a 230-year-old formula for unequal representation.

Instead, its critics say, the Senate has become a firewall for a shrinking minority of mostly white, conservative voters across the country to block policies they don’t agree with and safeguard the voter suppression tactics that shore up Republican power.”

It’s a rigged system, because the founders had to kiss southern rich white men’s racist asses to get them to join the Union.

And it’s still kissing them.

And what do they want to do? Leave the Union anyway!

The ideals and the words of the constitution and bill of rights are worthy……

The actual implementing has not occurred.

We want what our constitution promises…..a minority is holding it up.

This is what the “war” is about.

Those who are left out of the promises by those who get all the benefits.

We have made great strides, yes. But it’s time to remove 230 yr old barriers to equality.

If you don’t want equality, move somewhere else.

"Over the decades, whether feeding tens of thousands of tons of dirty waste coal into the power plants in northern West Virginia or subjecting workers to unsafe conditions, Manchin’s family coal business has almost entirely avoided public scrutiny."

Biden had acknowledged the First Nations. Something maga likes to conquer.

Biden is trying to give back women our rights.

Maga wants to take them away.

No such thing as independent. You’re either for Trump or your not. HE has made it that way.


Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 12, 2021:

Does anyone not remember that trump called the virus a “democrat hoax”? After Russia, the next hoax?

He maligned the vaccine and mask wearing.

Have people forgotten?

I hate him, and I hate the sound of his voice.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 12, 2021:

Trump said in his propaganda spew that Ilhan Omar married her brother…..

If he does end up running for prez again, dems need to say he violently raped a 13 yr old girl.

“As of tonight, at least 65 of the Jan 6 defendants have been charged with "entering a restricted area with a dangerous or deadly weapon"

A counterpunch to those who argued this didn't appear like "an armed insurrection"


Oh please….those dummies think it was antifa!

When….WHEN does common sense and intelligence kick in?????

This was a military style insurrection. Planned and executed with knowledge of the building, where the senators would be, where the access points were, and equipped with weapons, zip ties, and plans to KILL our gvt!

Unless and until Trumpers can admit it, they are the enemy, too.


Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 07, 2021:

“Judge Emmet Sullivan, "The American public is getting stuck with a big bill" in the damage/repairs from US Capitol attack.”

Why all of us? Bill Trump, Inc., the GOP, and all the people who were in that mob.

Are they grown ups, or children? Do they preach “personal responsibility”, or not?

For once….make them practice as they preach.

As a judge told my daughter once….”you enjoyed doing it, didn’t you?”

She got sent to a cell.

These people can pay for the damage they created. And that includes any bills for psychological counseling after being targeted for death by a violent mob.

Time to stop molly coddling these people….. 300 years of it is enough!

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 06, 2021:

Do Americans realize, those who still support trump are ok that he tried to overturn the last election….with violence. Stopped Covid ppp to democratic states…..was ok if we DIED. Still spitting on 81 million of us by not admitting he lost.

They are ok with all of this….so why are you nice to them?

They don’t care if we died. Do you get that?

Scales being peeled back on the past 40 years….

The Pandora Papers.

Reagan, Iron Lady…..EFF YOUZE

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 03, 2021:

Thinking about it more…..the three elections that are questionable to me: 2000, 2004, 2016…….all had one thing in common. Bush was the darling of the religious right. Trump, the darling of the evangelical right.

Kavanaugh and Coney- Barret were both involved in giving the election to Bush in 2000.

And then…..

"Needless to say, Christian Right leaders were very pleased when Bush nominated John Roberts to the Supreme Court. “It is time to make good on those campaign promises, Mr. President,” said Troy Newman, president of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. “You have been given a mandate to end abortion in our nation by the American people who cast their votes for you.”

Many of the people in Trump’s early rise were from Council for National Policy.

Bannon, Conway, DeVos……who else? And why did we have Pence? Trump wanted Chris Christie.

And where did Miller come from? Why was he in the cabinet?

This reminds me of what I heard the Operation Rescue people used to do: “Get on schoolboards. Run for office. But don’t tell them you’re anti abortion. Once we’re inundated in gvt, we can get rid of Roe v Wade”. (something like that)

They are operating in secret and in subterfuge.

Remember the story in the Bible about the mother who stole the fathers blessing at his death bed?

That’s the Maga type Christians in America (formerly Tea Party)….and I bet they justify everything they do because they think it’s ok if it gets them power.


Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 02, 2021:

It’s all becoming a lot clearer….

Jennifer Cohn:

“BTW, this is almost certainly a national campaign. Manufacturing outrage over CRT & mask mandates was a key component. It was never about making public schools better. It was about taking them over to destroy them. Recall that “school choice” began in response to desegregation.”

I didn’t know that. But now it makes sense, putting DeVos as Sec of Education…..the charter school Queen, with zero experience in education whatsoever.

She’s CNP.

Its really looking like these far right weirdos used trump to get their way in our country. And he didn’t care…..he was in it for Vladimir.

Dues to pay.

Trump is gone….the weirdos remain. And I do mean weirdos. This guy making laws for my kids? Oh hell no.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 02, 2021:

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 01, 2021:

If money is not the solution to problems, what’s the big deal with the 1% paying more than 8% of their wealth in taxes?

Seems like when poor people need money because they have none, it’s a problem. “Entitlement”

When billionaires don’t want to pay taxes, it’s smart, not entitled.

Not in my book!

It’s capitalism. Spread the money around. Hoarding at the top is a ridiculous policy, imo.

This guy says the biggest criminals on the planet are the oligarchs.

The Cree prediction will have to come true: only after we’ve destroyed everything will we learn you can’t eat money.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on October 01, 2021:

“After fiercely criticizing the Biden administration for abandoning Afghan partners, all 50 Republican senators vote to curtail aid to Afghan evacuees who are granted parole to quickly enter the United States.”


This is why I never believed their crocodile tears in the first place.

They never cared about Afghani’s. They care about bashing Biden.

If they cared about women and children being persecuted, they can look plenty of places right now. Including USA.

They talk the talk….for political gain. They don’t walk the walk…..because they’re phony.

“You ever think about how when wages stayed stagnant from 2008-2019, that was just "the market" and not wage-fixing by companies?

But as soon as wages started to go up in the last year, it was "lazy people on welfare" and not the market finally correcting itself?”


A very profound answer;

“Agreed. The rationale behind wealthy individuals & corporations keeping workers chained to low wages goes back to the Founding Fathers who could conceive of freedom & Independence but were blindly attached 2owning others for-profit, IE slaves. We haven't changed much.”


There is still this divide. I:e…..

One is superior to the other.

This is the thing….

Democrats don’t do this.

These maga people don’t deal in truth and honesty. It’s all phony.

There’s big money behind it all, big perverted church, huge big corruption and sleazeball people. The dregs of society.

It’s not the Republican Party……

It’s something else.

Has McConnell always been this way? No, he has not. He is now saying if he’s Leader next year, he won’t let Biden have a Supreme Court seat!

After the scam he’s already pulled with Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett?

What kind of American politician does this? Goes against his own country’s rules and traditions?

They are working for someone else. They have all been captured.

Democrats have not. Some of them, yes. Most of them, no.

It’s not an honest opposition party……it’s a terrorist organization.

Repubs know it…..the real ones have left.

But these creepy, gross, violent maga bots do have a fight on their hands.

If they think for a moment that we’ll let these lunatics have authority over our kids…..they need to have their heads examined,

Wisconsinites LOVE the idea of paying for it all by raising taxes on the 1% & corporations.”


We can’t get it, though. Why? Because the 1% have all the money.

So, we have minority, rich, fundamentalist, icky, pervert religion rule.


It would be wonderful to have build back better. But republicans control the senate, and we still have the filibuster, electoral college, gerrymandering and unequal representation.

How long you think this can go on? And why is maga with the 1%?

Anyone see the report of Trump’s lawyer and his 6 point plant to overturn the 2020 election?

How about the report that Kushner and Zuckerberg made a deal….”you let us say what we want, regardless of the rules, we won’t regulate you.”

Early Facebook investor, Roger McNamee: "Facebook's research said two thirds of the time that people join an extremist group on Facebook is because of a Facebook recommendation, which means Facebook radicalized about 2 million people into QAnon."

“What we need are criminal investigations.”

Meanwhile, right wing media carries on a coordinated character assassination attack on the president of the United States.

MSM is pretty much on that bandwagon as well.

It’s really exhausting living here with simply a decent guy in charge.

He gets no break.

Meanwhile, Trump, who planned and carried out an insurrection to overturn the elected gvt of the USA, was impeached twice, through neglect, caused hundreds of thousands of deaths…..yet is planning another run for president!

It’s unreal.

And proves my point: righting rules the world.

Listen to Whitehouse….the Federalist Society big money and mouths bough the dam Supreme Court!

When women and gays lose all their rights again, will you admit it?

Oh sorry. You? Admit anything? Not in my lifetime.

I bet you blame democrats for Jan 6, huh? 9/11 was Obama, huh?

Oh. Bailout of the banks in 08 W Bush put into law.

That big sucking sound NAFTA HW Bush put into law.

And I know you still blame Obama and Clinton.

Not only are you oppressors, you’re also dumb.

The EU made a trade deal with China. To counter China’s power, Biden made a nuclear sub deal with UK and Australia…..and Macron doesn’t like it.

Biden is going to piss a lot of people off…..already has.

But, if you want to see real tuff man stuff…stay tuned.

When my Swedish grandfather died, all these old tuff guys came to his funeral. I was shocked!

Wearing the coat and cap my grandpa used to wear….

That’s what Biden reminds me of. A first or second generation immigrant tough guy.

No guns needed. Use the fists.

That kind of thing.

And I like it!

Plus, I live near Boston…..gotta love anything Irish.

“Are the rioters at the capital being treated differently than the summer's riots all over the country, even though there were far fewer people hurt or killed at the capital?”


Yes! Trump said 10 years in prison for defacing federal buildings.

These maga subversives are allowed to go on trips to Mexico pre trial!

Allowed to live with mom and be free, after STEALING PELOS’S LAPTOP!

And some of them are finding out what the justice system is all about….what the prison system is all about…..after years of staunchly defending it when “other” people are in it.

“No tv, no books, no nothing. They deserve to suffer, that’s what they’re there for” ….remember? I sure do.

They definately get better treatment than BLM. Cops were letting maga IN to the capitol! And, if it was BLM, a lot more than one woman would have been shot.

This is what we saw with BLM:

Along with tear gas, beating with clubs, pulling people and throwing them in vans.

I expect the same today.

Time to get tough with spoiled white people.

They threaten to kill people in our gvt. Stop treating them like innocents.

Each death by Covid is completely unnecessary. The more republicans push for death, the clearer their motives become.

If you fine people for saving lives, what does that make you?

If you push lies that get people killed, what does that make you?

None of the killers can see the big picture….they are too caught up in the agenda…..

But, there will be backlash…..and someone is going to Pay.

And I am telling you, from my experience here in earth….

Don’t be part of the lies that get people killed!

Every outlet that allows these lies will pay a price. Not now, but in the future.

We will find out who is behind the anti vaxx movements….I’ve already seen CNP mentioned.

Russian intelligence, obviously.

Talk radio….hellerrrrr

Anyone who wants Americans dead. It’s not going to end well for them.

This, is proven fact.

When Trump falls, the whole thing falls. And those who bought into the phony baloney will see how they’ve been duped……and how many died unnecessarily for lies.

Something new: COVID 19 accountability.

Doctors are going after doctors who spread Covid conspiracies.

It will come to media as well. And CNP is going to be exposed for its 40 year war on America.

And hubpages will be shown to harbor paid mouthpieces for some of these extreme organizations. IMO only.

But we know of one called Lady Love….rumored to have worked for the federalist society.

And we already know people here were gung ho for the insurrection.

And don’t tell me it’s “free speech”. They banned me for criticizing Israel’s treatment of Palestinians.

It’s a political agenda going on.

A far right one. Brutal and inhumane.

And that is what’s killing Americans. You won’t survive unscathed.

I’d just like to know why this crowd has found a nest here.

IMO, as always.

Sometimes the talking points are really so stupid….

Dear magats, Biden is not a leftist. Pelosi and Schumer are not “radical”.

It’s as if you forgot the whole Bernie vs Hillary thing that went on in the dem party.

What Biden is, is a true blue dem. He really believes in it. Like, for decades. Read the platform. That’s him.

And he’s not afraid of youze. He doesnt kiss your butts, like the media and people like tulsi Gabbard, joe Manchin and Kristin Sinema do.

He believes in what he says. And he won’t be rolled over.

I know you think trump is mr macho, but obviously, your idea of macho and mine are miles apart.

So, as Biden said recentjy to the maga politicians….”have at it”.

Keep it up. Soon, you’ll be drowning in your sea of hypocrisy.

Like how you crave control over women, but will let kids die for your own personal freedom.

And again, you are not free to kill people. Spreading a deadly virus is not freedom, it’s murder.

When do you see that this is not a joke?

There are going to be consequences for it. That, you can take to the bank.

“Biden was responding to a question from a reporter about the alleged role of "platforms like Facebook" in spreading falsehoods about vaccines and the pandemic.

The White House has been increasing pressure on social media companies to tackle disinformation.

Facebook says it is taking "aggressive action" to protect public health.

"They're killing people," Mr Biden told reporters at the White House on Friday. "The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated."


When you get it through your thick skulls that’s it s cyber war, and you are promoting enemy info… them legitimacy against fellow Americans…….

What should the penalty be?

Because you do it knowingly. And we all know others who have been banned…..for what?

Russian psy op, you allow. Why?

“In 1905 Supreme Court said: The community has a right to protect itself against an epidemic. What POTUS did was a brilliant use of his power to protect us from death and prolonged economic harm.”

Again, Cape Cod is open and busy. Why? We vaxx.

Who has mask mandates and full ICU’s? Those who don’t. Simple reasoning.

Business will have to get involved, as they are. Biden mandates for those he has the power over.

Businesses must do the same.

I’m 5 months out from my jab. Hubby is 8. When do the dire side effects come?

I don’t know. Next time you put a Big Mac in your mouth, drink a beer, or have a cigarette, let me know.

Oh, and stop whining. Remember when they started testing for drugs at jobs? I was like 18, I think.

Myself and all my friends said , “I’ll NEVER work for a company that does a drug test! Its my business what I do after work!!!”

Welp……where are we now? Lot of places drug test, make you wear certain clothes……I heard UPS doesn’t allow facial hair.

Get it?

No shirt, no shoes, no vaxx, no service.

And when hubpages bans people, guess what you freedom fighters say?

“They can do what they want”

So. Knock off the phony freedom shit.

“The vaccinated ones got their decision to get vaccinated out of a tremendous fear”


Common sense. If you don’t want to take advantage of the miracle that modern science and medicine have to offer, don’t put down those of us who do.

You are the ones afraid. Afraid of looking like “weak sheeple”, that you accuse us of being.

Surely, youve seen the woke pro Covid people? It’s like they want to get Covid, so they can prove they’re superhuman, unlike us weaklings.

And now it’s your superior consciousness, is it?


Mind over matter is nothing new. But Covid has a mind, too, and it’s smarter than yours. It has one focus: survival.

That’s actually our focus, too. Survival. And if that means cutting non vaxxed off at the be it.

Funny, I wonder if anyone remembers how people with AIDS were treated? A lot worse than you. Especially by big religion. Remember, they said AIDS was punishment for being gay.

Reagan wasn’t it? Treated them like crap.

So guess what? I have no qualms treating pro covids like crap now.

The cure is available……By not taking it, you are stealing lives who otherwise would be saved. ICU’s are full of non vaxxed emergencies.

Nurses and doctors are tired of watching people die.

Why don’t you pro covids on hubpages start your own clinic for mental cure of Covid?

Your superior consciousness and herbal remedies should do the trick.

Leave modern medicine to those who want it, and therefore, deserve it.

Thank you.

I bet he didn’t want to die. He had to, because people won’t get vaxxed. Then take up all the hospital beds when Covid gets them. There ought to be lawsuits. It’s like people driving drunk and killing….it’s irresponsible and should be held that way.

Don’t want the vaccine? Don’t use the hospitals. Tuff it out, freedom people. You are so much better than us weak sheep anyway! Isn’t that what you think? So live your truth. Tuff it out til the end. Because others are dying for you. Dying for you!

is one of the rare exceptions.”

“Anti-vaxxers, COVID conspiracy theorists and right-wing politicians have made the pandemic far more hellacious than it ever needed to be. We have been lectured endlessly by pundits and attention seekers on social media that we musn’t ever make them feel bad about their awful choices — no matter how many public, violent scenes they cause over health rules, heavily armed protests they organize to intimidate us and how much the death toll soars.

Their feelings have been deemed more important than the health and well-being of our families, because somehow if we kowtow to the worst people in our society, a few will supposedly be nice enough to get vaccinated or wear masks.“


Thanks for having the guts to say it. “The Trump voter” is endlessly catered to….and god knows why.

Bernie voters were catered to, as well.

I guess just being normal isn’t enough. You have to be extra to make the grade.

Well, us normal people are fed up. Covid is a killer. We don’t want to die. YOU will not hurt us anymore.

I’m sure we do it too, but heres the rub. Which side are you on? Wayyyyy too many Americans are on the side of Russia against America.

It’s been going on ever since. When I joined here in 2010, 2 tighty righty chicks used to follow me around asking “why do you hate America?” Just because I didn’t like the Tea Party.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on August 26, 2021:

And now, for “the rest of the story”…..

The reason my mom was a feminist is because she was never seen. She played a role, given to her by society: wife and mother.

When my mom was in school, a teacher singled her out. Told her she really was smart and talented, and should go on to college. My mom loved academics, loved the work world, loved being out there.

Unfortunately, her father didn’t agree. He said, “what do you need to go to college for? You’re just going to get married and have kids”

He saved his money for her younger brother, since he was going to be the provider of his future family.

So my mom put herself through community college…..really it was secretary school, but she became a teacher.

And then, she did quit when she got pregnant, and took on the role of wife and mother.

And that is why she pushed so hard for women……since no one pushed for her.

Anyway, she had a good life. My dad was a good provider, and they were high school sweethearts, so they had a good marriage, too.

But, truly, she lived vicariously through my dad. I mean, she had us kids, but dam, if you’ve had kids, I can assure you, working a job is easier!

Anyway, it reminds me of a story I read about an Eastern European town….

Two college girls were having coffee, and upon leaving the shop, a man tried to kidnap one of the girls. Luckily, she got away.

He was going to take her far into the country to be his “wife”. I/e be raped by him, have his kids, and be condemned to a life of slavery, working his family’s farm.

For my daughters, and my new great granddaughter, I want better. I want the world as their oyster, their dreams lived out, or at least attempted.

Not all women are meant to be homemakers…’s not who they are. Many are wonderful at it, and, as Jackie Kennedy said, if she failed as a mom, nothing else matters.

But don’t give me this shit that it’s a woman’s nature to do so. It’s a role we’ve been relegated to, just as men are supposed to be “tuff guys”.

I don’t believe in roles. Nobody has to do anything. We just do, to assuage society.

That’s why it’s breaking down. Too many rules and restrictions on your spirit.

Be who you are……and ignore those who assign you a specific role due to your gender.
