Monday Randomness

My random thoughts seem to be a bit political this week, so bear with me…..

  1. These Mommy wars on Twitter have got to stop.  Really.  Is this high school? Aren’t we all grown women?  I always looked at the blogging community as a supportive one.  Yes, we have different opinions on how to raise our kids, but in the end, we are all MOMS.  We all have our kids best interests at heart.  I see the point of both sides of the story.( Don’t you hate it when friends argue?)  And that’s all I have to say about that( in my Forrest Gump voice).
  2. Tiger and Elin got a divorce. Thank God! I hope she got paid.  Now Tiger can get back to sleeping with all the low class bimbos he wants.  Maybe his golf game will improve.
  3. Paris Hilton got arrested on charges of cocaine possession……*crickets*.  And why is this news???????
  4. Sunday was the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.  I watched all the specials, newscasts etc.  C-Dub asked me why I was watching it AGAIN? Wasn’t I tired of seeing the same images over and over, year after year?  Wasn’t it enough the first time?  No.  I like to be reminded every year how the government treated/mistreated my fellow Americans that week following Katrina.  I want to be reminded that there is still classism and racism in America.  I want everyone else to be reminded too.  How else can we work towards fixing it?   This is still America’s dirty little secret.  It’s not all the land of the free and the home of the brave. 
  5. And on that note, how can we try to block a religious group from building a  place of worship in a country that was founded on religious freedom?  Have we forgotten our history?  Has we forgotten why a lot of people came to this country? Religious freedom!  Yes, it may be in bad taste to build a mosque so close to Ground Zero, but once again, this is America.  Land of the free, home of the brave……
  6. Glenn Beck.  Yeah right, you didn’t know it was the anniversary of The March on Washington?  I’ll believe that when pigs fly.  And if you wanted to make your rally have more clout, why did you invite Sarah Palin?  I mean really? 
  7.  And finally, this isn’t a random thought but..I know a lot of people won’t agree with ANYTHING I’ve written in this post.  You might even stop reading my blog.  But I’m in a mood today.  Just remember, opinions are like assholes.  Everyone has one. 

Happy Monday.

Stay tuned……….

    You totally missed the memo (#6) cause it’s religious freedom as long as you agree with the powers that be. It’s in the constitution somewhere. Glenn Beck is a loser. Sometimes I wish the media would ignore some stories. For the life of me I don’t understand why people get so up in arms about different people’s parenting styles. The only thing I can come up with is that it makes them insecure about their decisions. Which brings me full circle to religious intolerance. People get ugly when people do things that are different. It’s the American way. Hopefully I’m not on a no fly list now.

    I agreed with everything you said!

    But I only watched the Rachel Maddow show’s coverage of the anniversary. You are right that we need to be reminded, but I need my negativity in small doses.

    *is sometimes ambivalent about being aware*

    I don’t think I have ever even witnesses a Twitter mommy war. Is it about how to parent “the right way”? I would like to think that we mommies could respect each other’s opinions.

    I’m sure there are lots of people who would disagree with me for being an attachment-parenting, former babywearing and extended breastfeeding mom who did not vaccinate her child and who now homeschools him, but I would expect people to say so respectfully.

    Great blog post!!

    Count me in as another who agrees with you wholeheartedly. Um, except for the twitter stuff, but mainly because I don’t know anything about twitter mama-drama.

    I am from DC. When 911 happened, I was in DC living near Andrews Airforce base. We were all horrified and terrified when the plane hit the twin towers and the pentagon. How could we forget? Of course the mosque is in poor taste. But really, not all muslims are radical extremists who want to kill Americans. Do we punish the many for the crimes of the few?

    I agree with all that you’ve said, but heck, even if I didn’t you’ve got the right to say it. Especially on YOUR blog! *lol* I hate bloggers who feel like they need to say certain things, certain ways so as to keep the “amen choir” singing loudly. Whatever. We are all individuals and people should respect each others right to have an opinion.

    I do however think the Paris Hilton arrest is HILARIOUS and newsworthy just for the sheer comedy!

    I was born and raised on Long Island. I lost a cousin in Tower 1 on 9/11, but I still support the mosque being built. Religious freedom and tolerance should not be abandoned because of the reckless acts of a few.
