And this time, I don't think it's a train!
Oh my stars. Saturday was one of the worst days of my life. In bed all day, writhing in pain and agony. Either food poisoning (but no one else who ate the same as me got sick) or some horrifying 24 hour intestinal bug. Talk about pain. Oh my WORD am I glad that's over. I've been in bed sick more in the last 2 weeks than I have since I've been out of the hospital in 2000.
I'm FINALLY feeling more normal today...(yes, I know, har har, I've never really been normal!)
Woke up with a migraine, but that's easing up, and I'm still a bit weak, but so so so much better. Thank the Lord!!!
I've been really getting into politics lately. Which kind of cracks me up because I hate politicians. It's just such a shame when you really look at the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and compare it to where we are as a country. It's shocking. The power the government has is crazy! It's not supposed to be that way!! Since when does the President of a supposedly free, capitalist, free-market society insist the CEO of GM get fired in order to continue supporting the corporation? Since when did the government start supporting private corporations at all??? I'm afraid we're skipping the road to socialism and heading down the crooked, forked path of communism. Shocking, but not that far off, if you're really paying attention.
I know there are a lot of things out there that demand our time and energy, but I am prevailing upon everyone who reads this and values their freedom to stand up and be heard. There are Tea Parties (taxed enough already) going on all over the country, where you can peacefully make your voice heard. We are a governemnt BY the people FOR the people. They work for US, we don't work for them. That's the way it's SUPPOSED to be.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their powers from the consent of the governed---that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likey to effect their Safety and Happiness.....But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their DUTY, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
-Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1776
How have we gotten so far off track? And more importantly, what are we going to do about it?
