I just about lost the plot today.
I saw one too many posts about the gov't giving refugees and immigrants huge amounts of money.
Taking food out of the mouths of pensioners.
Not true, proven over and over.
What are people afraid of? What?
We have so much in relation to these people, can't we give a little?

The religious right, wtf? Are you not reading your own bible? You feel it nescessary to instill such hatred toward *Muslims*  You want prayer back in schools, but your good Christian prayer. Not any other religion. Just yours.

The lazy ass who sits at home smoking and drinking and eating garbage, is outraged because some kid who overdosed is getting *free* narcan. Really? You have to pay for your lipitor? Fuck off.
Where's your compassion?

Just today I saw a picture of refugees coming into Canada with this hateful caption; Illegal immigrants have child porn!
Please, these people have a few clothes in a bag plus oodles of kiddy porn? Again, fuck off!

I try to be nice, respect other views, but I'm not a saint. So today I say to all of you that think any of these things are true to just this once think before you open your cake hole. And fuck off! Really, you and all your bigoted racist mysonginistic cunt friends too.
I'm so mad I'm not punctuating or spell checking or worried about my grammar.

*They lost Ryan*

The world according to Trump. Just today, (only today) he's Tweeted that *they lost Ryan* blaming the Seals for the death and failed raid in Yemen. Then he said that Obama was behind all the leaks in his administration, and finally (hopefully) that the Jews are behind their own spate of anti-semitic acts and threats. Whew, glad that's been straightened out. I'm going to be cleaning the litter box and cutting the cling ons off the dog's ass later. Will give his address a miss.

Just doing some reading on Rev. Franklin Graham. I see now where the more extreme views from some of my Christian friends come from. 

What an intolerant bigot. I feel sorry for you if this is the "way" you wish to worship. Hate is so overrated.

 Live and worship in the way that helps you look in the mirror at the end of the day. I choose to live and let live. I respect your views but will in no way ever be convinced to hate a person for being gay or a refugee or a (insert religion here.)

 I'm also hoping that people in the gay, refugee, (insert religion here) don't paint us white, over-privileged people with the same brush as the Reverend. (or Westboro, or the KKK, all factions of WHITE Christianity.) Like you do to extreme factions of (insert religion here)

 I keep coming back to this. It isn't sinking in I guess. So I'll keep blogging and writing and saying it over and over.

 Love one another, be kind.

I wrote this in August of 2007. Wildly prophetic. 

And we danced
We danced for the sheer joy of it. We danced solo, in couples and in groups. We danced under the full moon, we danced because it was Wednesday. We danced because we could, we were un fettered and free. We danced because our Grandfathers fought for our right to dance. We were happy.

Soon the puppet master came. At first he tried to tell us whom we could dance with. We obliged. We weren't happy but we did as we were told. Then the puppet master decided we should have strings attached. Strings on our arms and legs, strings on our heads. Some of us decided that we weren't going to dance for the puppet master, we decided that the strings were binding. So we danced in secret. We still danced together, but we were selective. We privately danced in couples, solo and in groups.

The puppet master soon found out and made it so even our private time had strings attached. We were sad. We couldn't dance any longer for the sheer joy of it. We couldn't choose our partners or groups. We couldn't dance the way our Granfathers hoped. Some of us chose to capitulate to the puppet master, tell him what he wanted to hear, so we could still dance. Others gave up dancing all together, the puppet master wasn't going to tell them what to do.

Our troupe faltered, we became discordant, the puppet master pulled our strings willy nilly, we could no longer dance together. We were sad.Then a revelation, one dancer decided that she would just cut the strings and dance to the beat of her own drummer, her Grandfather fought for her right to dance, she had a strong group of friends, and quite frankly decided that the puppet master could kiss the fattest part of her ass. Now she's out there, totally alone, dancing under the full moon, dancing with her friends and loving it. Life was good again. She wants the puppet master to know that she'll be a stone in his shoe. Everytime he tries to orchestrate the group or make them dance to his tune she'll be there. She'll cause pain, she'll make the puppet master wonder how he'll ever get rid of her. Oh, she might go, but it won't be quietly. No sir, she'll be outside dancing to the tune of her own music, directed only by her inner drummer, not by some Johnny come lately puppet master.

The pro Trump memes and anti Democrat memes I take with a grain of salt. That's high feelings and passion.
The direct hateful memes and comments about the woman's march. This sluts and baby killer propaganda is exactly why a misogynist got elected.
The hateful personal attacks and women turning on one another. You can be a Republican and a Trump supporter without attacking a whole gender.
These marches were FOR woman's rights, gender equality and fair pay, fair health care. Rights that our gender had to claw for.
To make it about abortion and attacking the women who courageously spoke about their morals and past behavior is bullying, at worst a hate crime.
Putting up a picture of a burning limo from Inauguration night that the same group who caused the hockey riot has claimed as their own, is just smoke and mirrors.
Love him or hate him, love her or hate her but RESPECT the women who made it possible for you to voice it online as you own original thought.
Attacking your whole gender based on a few *Trumped* up alternative facts doesn't make it OK. Millions of women marched from all over the world because it's not OK.
They did it peacefully, they did it out of love for their fellow sisters who have been abused, raped, unable to afford cancer screening and mammograms, to get counselling, who get paid less than a man for the same job. They did it for their gay children and their *not white* nationalities.
That's the one that gets me, the *registering* if you're Muslim. Smacks of Nazi Germany. That closed fist rankles me too. The new salute in my opinion.
It works both ways, if you want to send people back where they came from I guess I'll have to go to Sweden, even though I was born in Canada. Oh no, half of me has to go to Scotland!
A few of my more vocal *friends* will have to leave the States because they're immigrants too.
I'm not a baby killer, I'm not a Femi/Nazi/tard (wow offensive) I'm a Mother and Grandmother from Canada who has benefited from our health care system, and enjoyed the freedom to have a gay uncle, gay cousins, native cousins, and *gasp* a circle of female friends from all over the world.
Some cheated, some had therapeutic abortions, some were beaten, some raped, some molested, some are gay, some have cancer, some are dying, and some are brown.
I love them all.
However, I do not condone or feel love for any woman who would post such garbage. Especially when I know for a fact that they had/did many of the things on my list. Plus they've come home to Canada when they need operations and prescriptions.
We don't feel comfortable being told by a man (or anyone) when and where we can get heath care. The same men who thought that women could control when and where they had their periods, and (my personal fave) that women all have their period at the same time!
I know I'm not American, (my Dad was, so was the persecuted gay uncle, and grandparents) but if you think this Presidency will not effect us in Canada, you're so wrong.
Already talking NAFTA and pipelines and signed the gag order on abortion.
What's next?
All you fat ugly Canadian women have to go home? How does that feel?
Think about your words and hateful propaganda because I will never forget what you said and posted. I'll never pretend that it's not there when we see each other.
This wasn't easy for me to write, I'm all about screening what I see from certain people, blocking, unfriending.
I could have done this privately but that's not good enough in this case. When someone sees that we're friends on Face Book I don't want them to think I'm like minded.
Be Kind.

Go here, read this and remember why you marched ladies.

Be kind, don't turn on one another.

No more stooping, 

No more hate,

No more compromise,

Be Nice.

If you can't say it to someone's face, don't post it.

 I've been reading comments about Meryl Streep. She's being called down for her Golden Globe acceptance speech.

 In her speech she made it clear that mocking one another for race, creed or ability (disability) is unacceptable. She basically just reminded us of what out parents told us when we were 3. Be nice, play fair, show some compassion and acceptance for other people and their differences.

 She also didn't name him or call him names while doing so.

Now the people who are slamming her for this are in turn being insulted by people who like her. That's right, I've seen it several times. 

The people who profess to hate what Mr. Trump said or did are now attacking the people that didn't like what Meryl said. Thus completing the circle.

 I'm sure Ms. Streep didn't give such an impassioned and heartfelt speech to have her supporters do the same thing she abhors.

 I also read today that people elect who best represents them. Judging by all the hate filled comments from all sides we can see how Mr. Trump got elected. 

Like him or hate him, respect one another's right to do the same.
