Gay Republicans Offended That Obama Supports Gay Marriage. Seriously.

Well here’s a Blog post that this Hippie doesn’t have to write herself!!

Gay Republicans Offended That Obama Supports Gay Marriage. Seriously..

Rant: Trying not to Judge

I recently posted a Devotional from the “Stillspeaking people” about how we should avoid judging people.

I did NOT get thru the day without seeming to break my commitment to be more understanding, to try harder to understand how people can arrive at the political, religious, and spiritual positions so at odds from mine.

Let me rephrase that:

“…to try harder to understand how people who avow that they are Christianscan arrive at the political, religious, and spiritual positions so at odds from mine.”

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who tell the most outrageous lies?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who feed racial dividions by promoting and speading bseless sterotypes?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who impute the most horrible motivations to anyone and everyone who is the least bit different from them and/or their base in order to raise money or gain polircal office?

Is it judgemental to wonder what the motivation is of “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politians, spokespersons, politcos – who call Donald Trump, Glen Beck, Newt Gringrich, and Rush Limbaugh Christians, but refuse to acknowledge that Obama is a Christian?

Is it judgemental if when it comes to these “christians” – religious figures/leaders, politicians, spokespersons, politcos – I stop calling these people “my brothers and sisters in Christ”?

Seriously yours,

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary — the evil it does is permanent.

In many parts of the world the people are searching for a solution which would link the two basic values: peace and justice. The two are like bread and salt for mankind.

So NOW you’re Mad?

I emant to ree-post this awhile ago, but in light of the the fact that Super Tuesday is on supposed to be Tuesday, March 6, 2012., I thought this might be wirth sharing NOW. – Ninure da Hippie

So Now You’re Mad

By and via Vanessa Johnson Butler...

“IF ONLY THOSE WHO SEEM TO BE SO MAD AT PRESIDENT OBAMA WOULD READ THIS AND REFLECT A MOMENT, THEY MIGHT SAY:
Hmmmmmmmmmm… YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT!!………

Now, since Obama’s regime, all of a sudden, folks have gotten mad, and want to take America Back…BACK TO WHAT/WHERE is my question?

After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?

You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq.
You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn’t get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn’t get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.

You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn’t get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.

You didn’t get mad when they didn’t catch Bin Laden.

You didn’t get mad when Bush ran up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.

You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans, drown.

You didn’t get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the 1%, over a trillion dollars in tax breaks.

You didn’t get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.

You didn’t get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.

You didn’t get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.

You finally got mad when a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick…

PS. This one definitely needs to be circulated just for a reminder sake!”

I’d like you to think about this when thinking of Dr. King – a Hippie Rant

I’d like you to think about something:

Not talking about prejudice or racism is NOT the same as taking a stand against racism.

When people say “I don’t see color” I don’t hear you saying that you don’t have bigoted ideas/feelings about me. I hear you saying that you have no interest in my history, my culture, the discrimination I face BECAUSE of my color….

No we are not living in a post-racial society.

If Obama tied to catch a cab on the Northside of Chicago, odds are high he might not get picked up,

NEW ! The 244 ACCOMPLISHMENTS of PRESIDENT OBAMA

I really needed to make sure this gets shared more widely….

NEW ! The 244 ACCOMPLISHMENTS of PRESIDENT OBAMA.

Things I’d like to see for real: I voted

Seriously, I am getting so figgin’ tired of people who voted for Obama complaining Obama “didn’t/hasn’t none anything” or “hasn’t done enough”.

Seriously.

Sick of it.

Would these people tell “me” what have they done in the the last years to get anything done after casting their vote in November 2008? Made phone calls to elected officials? Write letters? Join in protests/demonstrations? Any community service? Supported any organizations?

I wanna ask “So you got your “I voted sticker and went home, and that was it. Did you really think that Obama (or anybody else you voted for) was supposed to use magicto make things happen without you doing a thing?”

voting sticker

You voted, now do more!
