Tolerance and Open Minds?

Tolerance as defined by the Democrats seems to be a one-way street as in ‘their way or no way’ and no holds barred if you disagree.

*Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant. Seems she may be facing
opposition to her freedom of choice at her own home now.

*Kirstjen Nielsen was harassed in her own home.

*Homeland Security staffers have been warned of “increased threats” from the open borders mob.

*Democrat Maxine Waters is calling for MORE HARASSMENT of the Silent Majority.

*Just Google ‘threats on Trump and Family’ and be amazed at all the horrible plots put out there by famous people and I have yet to hear about them being arrested.

Seemingly, the liberal left thinks that if you don’t agree with everything they say, you bring about harassment and hurt upon yourself and it is YOUR fault if you suffer.

During the 2016 election, it was condoned for Democrats or Bernie supporters to do their best to ruin any Republican event. Known conservators were attacked verbally and, sometimes, physically. The election didn’t end this as Maxine Waters immediately went on the impeachment train even before Trump moved into the White House. Now, she has incited her following to further discord and attacks on anyone that agrees with Trump. Now, the democrats are always quick to defend most anything or anyone in the voice of ‘freedom’ . . . unless YOUR freedom doesn’t come in line with their view of freedom. I once knew someone that warned me with, “You make me angry, you take your chances!” Seems to be the mantra of the liberals, too.

No Changes If The State Disapproves?

I came across this information this morning and cannot believe that a person’s freedom of choice can be against the law if the choice doesn’t come under what the State wants rather than the individual.

People should have choices and even if one doesn’t always approve of another person’s choices, it should be their choice, right? Not according to a new bill being considered seriously in the State of California. The bill will make it unlawful for a person who is gay to decide to seek counseling because they might want to change their sexual identity. The law would also take away the right to separation of church and state as even a priest, rabbi, or minister would not be allowed to do counseling to that effect.

I’ve been coming across this information for the last week or so and am wondering if NOW, our priests and bishops will stand up and speak against this bill as it does affect the way they can deal with parishioners in conflict legally.

In California, we tend to avoid musing over ‘what next’ as the future ‘what next’ is always worse than the last one. Don’t we have enough serious problems in California to keep our government busy that they seem to feel they have to meddle in everyone’s personal life? It’s truly not constitutional but that hasn’t really stopped many politicians up to now.

And the rest of the country shouldn’t get too complacent because the liberal factions are constantly trying to make the changes they want not the the changes that truly benefit the citizens.

Representing ALL American Citizens

These days, politicians always have their eye on the prize even if it means putting their needs/wants ahead of the people who voted them into office. Shamefully, even with scientific proof staring them in the face, many politicians refuse to consider all their citizens in their decisions. What is even sadder are the female politicians seemingly have no feelings for the unborn at any stage. I suppose the reason for ignoring the humanity of the unborn baby could cause them to lose future elections and figure the loss of their soul is a reasonable trade off.

I pray that the bishops of those dioceses remind the pastors that since these politicians have made their support for abortion a public declaration, they should not be allowed the sacraments.

Fantasy, Politics, and the World of Today

With every news report facing us each morning, most of us realize there is something really wrong going on in our world today. The fact that so many people seem to think everything is fine and work even harder toward causing division in the world is beyond belief especially when you consider the good such people could accomplish with common sense and a Christian attitude. Pipe dreams aside, you probably have trouble understanding the whys of so many events today.

The major issue that has always caused wrinkled foreheads trying to decipher the why of it all is the fact that if you hurt or kill a pregnant woman and, subsequently her unborn baby, you will be liable for murder of both the woman and the child. BUT, legally and up to the point of birth in some situations, it is very legal in our country to kill a baby in the womb without a problem of legality or a case of murder. When a concerned citizen exposed the selling of baby parts with proof in the Planned Parenthood clinics, the concerned citizen faces lawsuits and Planned Parenthood seems to be the victim . . . and babies still die needlessly.

Now we are faced with a lot of changes in our country and a multitude of refugees are flooding our borders. As good Americans, these people are provided for . . . while our veterans continue to receive substandard treatment in some cases and so many are actually homeless and mistreated. When I was growing up, my mother was generous with the little we had at the time but the family still came first even if we cut back a bit in order to help another. That doesn’t seem to be a priority today with the men and women who come back from war situations and have to fight for their lives to live here.

Although not nearly as rampant as Europe, we are experiencing hurt and death from some of the refugees who seek refuge here. Towns and cities are expected to take up the slack on this while the government keeps allowing more in than can be dealt with right now. Many of the Muslim refugees will not assimilate so we face many of their religious requirements that are not in line with life in America today. Welfare was stretching quite thin before this influx of refugees and isn’t getting any better now. You have to stop and think about how many citizens in our country do pay taxes and how much longer can we consider having the government look good and gracious on our hard-earned dime.

So many of the politicians we, the people, have voted into office care more about their agenda than represent the interests of the people who voted for them. Just this week, one politician was leading a crowd in chanting about impeaching the President. I know this isn’t a perfect world but with several other countries who wouldn’t mind seeing the United States fail and a small country who keeps trying to get their missiles to hit our coast, you would think petty difference and post-traumatic shock from the presidential election would be put aside in trying to protect and save our country.

The name calling, abrasive behavior, the distorted truths fire off from the losing side of the November 2016 election isn’t changing anyone’s mind about the way the votes went last year. They thwart every move President Trump makes and blurs the needs that have to be dealt with while they continue to obsess over the country’s rejection of their candidate’s election to office. There are gatherings (aka riots) most every week in mourning for their fantasies about how the world could have been perfect . . . if only.
Guess that common sense isn’t readily available these days. It certainly doesn’t seem to be coming from the halls of higher learning. We have a good many problems that need to be addressed soon in our country if only the world could come up with a miracle . . . not for the fountain of youth but for the sense needed to finally grow up.
