What Will It Take?

I am musing tonight … trying to understand the folks who continue to support Donald Trump. What low blow will be the final straw that shakes them into understanding just how evil this man is. In fact, he has said he could get away with murder:

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and wouldn’t lose any voters,” then candidate Trump said during a January 2016 campaign rally in Iowa.

So why should we be surprised that he continues to attack deceased Senator John McCain. Republicans ‘en masse’ are still supporting Trump and not calling him out for this transgression … even though he is attacking a fellow Republican.

“I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve. I don’t care about this, I didn’t get a thank you. That’s OK,” Trump told workers at a tank factory in Lima, Ohio.

“We sent him on the way, but I wasn’t a fan of John McCain.”

Donald Trump always thinks it is about him. UGH! Arrogant ASS!

This is not okay folks. This says a lot more about you all than it does about Donald Trump. This tells me that your sense of fair play is completely warped. YOUR own ethics are now being called into question. Your SILENCE tells Donald Trump that he CAN get away with it. If you can condone this thoughtless and blatant disrespect of a man that many consider a war hero and an honest man worthy of the highest consideration, and still allow that Trump insults McCain’s memory almost daily with his deplorable speech tirades and Twitter posts.

I am not a Republican, but many of you are. And yet, YOU ALLOW even this. Trump is corrupt in his heart and in all his dealings … beyond all decency. Donald Trump is exactly who he says he is and this is who you choose to represent YOU.

I cannot ever be friends with you. Seriously.

Please find your soul again and call this asshole out!

My Spirit Is Just Not Religious

01232013 Morning Light

Everyday I feel confronted by people that feel the need to shove their religious beliefs in my path. Yesterday it was a couple of nice old ladies at my door with a bible. I was nice and thanked them for worrying about my soul but sent them on their way.

Everywhere in this world people have their own culture that is based on their beliefs and religion. Socially it brings people together. It helps to give meaning to their worldview. I get that. I do not wish to change their view. I just don’t know why so many religious people feel the need to “sell” their religion to others by way of their own personal crusade.

Throughout mankind’s history and throughout the world, clashes of religions have caused wars and death. Why can’t people just “live and let live”. I have learned to avoid religion, avoid the labels and avoid the dogma. I love the people, not the dogma. Please don’t worry about my soul.

My Spirit is my own and it is one with all of nature and the natural beauty of this world. I do not need to be “annoy”nted by someone else’s idea of a god or belief. I do not need to make myself right to be accepted. Mother Earth has already accepted me as her own and the Creator does not judge.

I have found my own path and it is a good path.
