I’m Listening; Please Speak Up

One of my big frustrations is:
If I say I believe in one particular thing, people assume that I also hold to several others.  For example, if I say that I believe the scientists who say the planet is warming, I must also believe all that is declared by the Pro Choice Movement, LBGTQ comunity, anti conservative sentiment and anything else deemed “libreral” or “progressive.”  I may or may not be inagreement; I may concur to one degree or another.  The deal is, I don’t really fit in any one camp.  I find truth on all sides AND I find error (at least as I see it.)

All of this to ask you what it is you believe.

Here are some pump primers:
*On a scale from 0-100, how would you rate your approval of Mr. Trump?

*On the same scale, how would you rate your approval of

-The House of Representatives
-The Senate
-Your representative specifically
-Your senators

*On a scale from 0-10 (0= “I don’t buy it at all”  10= I absolutely hold that to be true)  where are you?
-Climate change is real and needs serious, immediate attention.
-All illegal immigrants should be rounded up and deported.
-The Affordable Care Act is good for the most part; a little tweeking would make it better.
-The US should impose ttariffs and import taxes on goods shipped from other countries.
-A wall between the US and Mexico is a good idea.
-We need to continue funding Planned Parenthood and programs like it.

 

Okay, now that I have warmed you up a bit, would you please share:

The most important issue(s) as far as you are concerned?

Now it’s your turn.  What questions do you want to ask?

I am looking forward to your comments.

Revolution, Resistance, Reasonability

 

There are changes coming that are completely contrary to all that we hold dear.  They are hurtful, prejudiced, based in fear and judgement.

 

Many groups are calling for resistance and even revolution.

 

While my own ability to join in might be limited, I tend to agree with that call.

 

What I and everybody else can do is to insist on reasonability.  We can contact senators and representatives to support them when they take a stand, offer ideas and challenge them when we disagree.

 

We can join marches, refuse to go along when our faith and/or consciences are involve, offer shelter to vulnerable people and support services that are being defundedd.

 

We need each other right now.  we won’t be able to face the oncoming onslaught alone.

Here are some organizations to check out:

Thank you.
