I have sat here and typed then deleted several times,
wanting to attack the Senator Kerry supporters that are writing all the nutty
stuff in their blogs. After several articles written in a fury and then
pondered and deleted I realized that I don't want to attack them. What
good would it do to make fun of or ridicule them. They, I guess need the
time heal after their loss and then maybe they will come around.
There are things that we will never agree on, but should
make compromises or at least see the other side.
1) Abortion - it need to be more than black and
white. I don't want any baby (embryo ) killed but, like in any situation
there should be a set of circumstances for it to be allowed. Such as rape,
but not for birth control. ( though I don't have a problem with the
morning after pill)
2) Gun Control - I believe that every citizen should be
trained to handle a gun by the age of say, 10. For all you in the bigger
cities that is the difference, rural kids( most of them) are trained in the
proper care and handling of guns from a very young age. To us guns are a
tool and provide forms of recreation such as hunting and target shooting.
The majority of us are responsible and don't turn into serial killers.
However, I do understand your fear. If I had grown up in the city I would
be fearful as well and yes, I would probably want some type of gun
3) Gay marriage - Hell, give it to them but don't call it
marriage. To me the term marriage means the union between a man and a
woman. Call it anything you like besides that. As far as the
adoption thing,. well I haven't decided yet. I don't believe that a Gay
man can pose as a mother, maybe it's just because that seems creepy to me, or
that a Gay woman can pose as a father, for some reason that isn't creepy. (maybe
a little weird though). But in this world of single parents maybe two of
the same gender wouldn't be that bad?
4) The war in Iraq - It didn't matter neither one will get
5) War on terror - Again it didn't matter neither one will
get this right either. There will be victories and defeats. And at each
one there will be people cheering or jeering the person in office.
One thing that we can agree on is that the country is
divided. Guys we need to meet somewhere in the middle and really listen to each
others concerns. Right now we are like a married couple at about year 3 of the
marriage, all fighting with no one giving in. We need to get on to year 4,
so we can argue just to make up! Think of the parties we could throw!
