What’s Up With The Tea Party

This entry was posted in Politics by Cleave on

You know it is great that a 3rd party is trying to make strides but I am not so sure about the platform it is being built on. They claim right on their website that they are “A community committed to standing together, shoulder to shoulder, to protect our country and the Constitution upon which we were founded!” I am not convinced of that at all. If they were to interact with our founding fathers I am sure they would have tried to have them lynched or burned at the stake as heretics. Our founders were not right wing Christians nor were they straight laced homophobes. Some played on both sides of the fence and no one cared about it. Many of our founders were not even christian. You can find many articles and books on just how “interesting” our founders were. The Tea Party says they want to take us back to the values of our founders, Right….

Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Bull Crap

Dont ask dont tellI just don’t understand the Republican party and all these religious right wingers, or is it the left wing nuts. I just can’t keep them straight, or is that twisted, any more. We go on and on about how we need to have young people join the military and serve our country but they just don’t believe it or they would allow our young gay men and women serve as well. Have you actually ever seen how a gay man or woman treats others? Have you wondered why they seem to have such a better capacity to love then straight people? They can because they are true to themselves. They don’t deny who or what they are. They are happy being what it is that they are. They are human, they feel, they bleed and can be hurt just like everyone else. The don’t ask don’t tell policy is nothing more then a farce and a political ploy and control mechanism.

Stupid Politics

This entry was posted in General Musings, Politics, Stupidity by Cleave on

I really don’t get it. I really don’t. The United States is supposed to be about the people and for the people but instead lately it is all about corporate greed and how much a politician can make and how much they can control the lives of people. That is just down right wrong and I wish I had the money to be able to get in the arena with them and try and make some difference. The problem is that if a person is flush with money they really don’t see and sometimes don’t even care about what is happening around them. The only way I see things really changing is if the entire house and senate were emptied and then everyone wanting to run was forced to use public funds and not one cent of anything donated directly to the person running or the party that they belong to. The playing field needs leveled again if this country is going to get straightened out.
