Not Sure, Should I Laugh or Cry?

bbbb.By Sherry Pasquarello/WWH – 

True, I am not sure what I should do, laugh, cry or look for a man behind the curtain. Those of you that have been with WWH for a while know that I am a true political junkie. Make no mistake following politics is not a hobby. It’s an obsession. It’s been one since the late sixties/early seventies. Like any obsession it’s grown though the years. Now that I have an abundance of free time and internet access and a DVR I can do more than scratch at the chicken feed the mainstream media throws.

I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist unless you count my deep hope that there really is a Loch Ness monster and that the Scottish government just doesn’t want us to know (a girl can dream).

Anyway, I have had a pretty good record over the years for ferreting out the reasons that, certain political parties or government agencies, local or national do what they do around election seasons. This time round, I am at a loss unless there really are some very convoluted schemes afoot.

What am I (or you) to make of this?

Palin interviewing Trump, why??? Now, a lot of folks laughed (it is funny/bizarre). Some people groaned. I’m sure a lot of the political big shots in the Republican Party may have thrown up a little and some of the other follow the leader wanna be types like Cruz may have been speed dialing Palin before the interview was even over. I want to know why this even found air time. Is it as it seems; just more ridiculous theatre from Trump? If so, what’s his game? Is it a shiny tinsel ball of deception so the electorate looks the other way? It’s so early in this political season is he a plant and if so by which party or which billionaire puppet master buddy of The Donald? Yes, he has money but with these folks there is never enough. Is he, by design so much of a complete loathsome jerk that he will make the rest of the pandering fools in his party look like sane alternatives? Or is he, like some of the normal Republican congresscritters and on air pundits claim a Democrat setting up the Republican Party for ridicule? I doubt that. This- go round the Republicans and their shills a FOX and right wing radio have done a damn fine job of that with no outside help.

So, what’s the deal? I’m tending on the theory that this is some sort of a covert plan. That isn’t good news but as they say, “forewarned is forearmed” and NO I don’t mean that second amendment bluster. I mean forearmed with knowledge and the time to really do something other than piss and moan about it.

All I do know is that despite what the fatalists in our ranks say, our vote, EACH vote must really count or the powers that be wouldn’t even bother with whatever theatre they’ve cooked up.

Peace, it don’t come easy!

Just in case there are some that think i have been overreacting when i warn against weakening the separation of church and state and give my opinion that once the minority religions in America are once again persecuted or at best marginalized once again; the Christian just in case there are some that think i have been overreacting when i warn against weakening the separation of church and state and give my opinion that once the minority religions in America are once again persecuted or at best marginalized once again; the Christian sects will be at each other’s throats all for the glory of their flavor of Jesus- here you go.

Jesus fight!: Furious fundies flood Texas governor’s Facebook page over Virgin Mary ‘idolatry’

Yeppers all you Catholics out there- including a boatload of Republican congresscritters and Presidential wanna-bes and a majority, if i’m not mistaken- of the members of the SCOTUS-you are all idol worshiping criminals with a history of burning REAL Christians at the stake!

In defense of the non-protestant Christians out there( and there are a lot besides Roman Catholics) i have to tell the Fundamentalists this-

I was, GASP, raised pre-Vatican II Catholic. taught by nuns ( the sisters of St.Francis of Mount Alvernia) until high school when i went to a very nice public high school (Go Foxes!). anyway, one of the VERY first things that the nuns taught us was that we “venerated” Mary but we worshiped only GOD ( the holy trinity-GOD the father, GOD the son and GOD the holy ghost/spirit). the second thing was that statues( some quite beautiful and some the stuff of nightmares) were only artistic representations, not objects of worship. More like 3D picturebooks. So i have to take issue with the idol worshiping part of the hate mail this man received.

Me? i am what i am. i believe in what the Buddha said:

Believe nothing on the faith of traditions,
even though they have been held in honor
for many generations and in diverse places.
Do not believe a thing because people speak of it.
Do not believe on the faith of sages of the past.
Do not believe what you yourself have imagined,
persuading yourself that a God inspires you.
believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests.
after examination, believe what you yourself have tested
and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

Buddha

Yeppers sweet hippies, if we don’t get out the vote, get ready for a whole lot more misery than we have now cause there aren’t any of us and precious few of anybody else, out there that will be up to the Christo- Talibans standards. Just look at the middle-east-oh and just for those that don’t quite get it- ALLAH is the Arabic language word for GOD- the same God of the old testament-whether you want to believe that or not!

We have a great opportunity to set things on the road back towards peace and brother/sisterhood. We CAN do this. Don’t let the cynics and the profiteers tell us otherwise. We know how if we have the will.

Peace
