In today’s political climate as women are becoming empowered an idea is emerging that somehow the ship of state will be righted if women are elected.
A potential exists in that but solely dependent on the character and qualifications of elected women.
I believe that women should be represented in government and would bring a lot to the table – but also that gender alone is a far cry from being qualified as has been shown to be the case with men.
If you doubt that take a look at Betsy De Vos, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Ivanka Trump, and Kistjen Nielsen.
These are subjugated women, women who jump when told what to do, who serve a loud mouthed overbearing man and at least figuratively toddle along in his wake picking up after him as he flings his rhetorical dirty socks and underwear about the house.
Women can be every bit as malicious, corrupt, manipulative, greedy, and vindictive as their counterparts so let’s not fool ourselves as election cycles and opportunities present themselves.
The spotlight is on women, how they respond, how they conduct themselves and the decisions they make will be highlighted and impact future generations.
As a man I don’t view women as inferior, a domestic servant, short order cook, nor a recreational device – I don’t champion patriarchy or matriarchy, rather a balanced equality – but when it comes to integrity and being worthy of respect I won’t lower the bar for men or women and don’t believe anyone should.
A door is opening I encourage women to step through with grace, dignity, and worthy purpose – don’t try to out man the men you rail against or nothing much will change, bring your gifts to the table, and if you would hold men accountable don’t hesitate to do so with women as well.
If it takes a village to raise a child it takes men and women of good character on equal footing to guide a nation.
Sometimes you just throw your hands up, shake your head, and wonder why?
Intentionally darkened this and no Barnabas Collins or Johnny Depp. Look closely, what do you see?
Here we go again readers – buckle up as I refuse to remain silent about this:
Shithole – if any are offended by profanity a couple of options exist, one being read no farther and the other being to accept the reality that a shameless, morally reprehensible, mentally deficient hybrid human orangutan occupies the WhiteHouse fully supported by more of the same.
Accept the reality that the WH is rapidly becoming a festering shithole of dysfunctional ignorance and something of a rallying point for white supremacists.
Accept the reality that the only organic material to be found in this presidents cranium is feces and that a “family values” base apparently not only embraces that but find it cause for celebration.
If poverty, need, lack of opportunity, flagrant inequities, culture and ethnicity are seen as indicators to merit a nation or geographic location being designated as a shithole then I submit shitholes abound in this country in every state in the Union from inner city ghettos to Appalachia and every rez in this country.
Shitholes that are forgotten, ignored, castigated, and ultimately fueled by the indifference of corrupt racist conservative and evangelical ideology.
Shitholes that in many instances have been crafted and maintained by governmental policies.
But what of the shitholes of corporate boardrooms and behind closed doors legislation that panders to them and their lobbyists?
Are they somehow more acceptable – do wealth and influence carry a self sanitizer?
As far as I’m concerned being as it is that the current administration has made of career of wallowing in shit then they can all eat their own.
As an indigenous person with a cultural history of enforced silence and government authored cultural degradation I’ m over entertaining buffoons, failing to say exactly what I mean, or making a pretense of political correctness.
Never has the axiom of “it is what it is” been more obvious – this administration is what it is, and that is racist to the core.
If you elect to watch the video take note of the statistics given by the second commentator Van Jones and then take note of Trumpkin apologist Jason Miller’s attempt to spin, evade, and conflate.
