Taking a Moment to be Political

So.. Z is pretty smart when it comes to politics and really, they've always just annoyed us. I keep reading all these blogs with some really great points, and I have to agree with some things, and I have to point out some things that.. well, drive me nuts. So, not to be offensive or stir up more drama, but just to put my 2 cents in & practice my right to free speech while it's still existent.. :)

  • I agree- American has come a long way in the area of equality. I'm glad that we are no longer blinded by racism towards blacks. I fully support a BIRACIAL president (just pointing out that he's not 100% black like some have made him). However, I was listening to the radio yesterday when a listener called in and admitted that he voted for Obama for the sole reason that he was black and so was Obama and now was actually taking the time to look at his policies, and didn't like them much. So, blogland, I ask you, is this racism? If I as a white female were to vote for a certain political figure based solely on our common skin color, would I not be considered racist by the black community? I'm afraid I would. I am VERY GLAD blacks are past the oppression of slavery, but.. has it gone to far? Has racial pride turned into a new form of racism? I'll let you decide..
  • I will respect the leadership position of president, and believe the entire country should- for presidents past, current, and future. I am not an Obama supporter, however I wish him luck in his attempt at running this country- God knows it's not an easy job. I only ask the same respect from those who are not Bush supporters. He wasn't my favorite guy either, but really, must we stoop to this????
America, this is your new chief of staff. I do believe he needed to listen to the part of Obama's speech where he said "The time has come to set aside childish things". Reports say that this face was directed at our former president.
Oh, by the way, terrible american who did this, the George Bush that you painted on hasn't been president for quite some time now. If you're going to do something stupid, you could at least paint on the right guy. Genious.

And, last but not least: To the Americans who sang "Nah nah nah nah, Nah nah nah nah, Hey hey hey, Goodbye..." yesterday.. get a grip, and some respect.

*takes a deep breath* Ahhh.. okay done with the rant. Some things just get me fired up. Tune in later for the regularly scheduled program. :)

I'm laughing at someone painting the wrong statue... I'm hearing you on needing to "take a deep breath" -- Ugh :)
