It's about the Squad Thing

Dear America,

it started with this...

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly..........and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how.......it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!
Trump's twitter fritter strikes again.

one itty bitty problem --  so only one of the four congresswomen was not born in the great US of A, only one. And namely, Ihlan Omar came from Somalia.

details.

His message was meant to sting and scorch the earth underneath their feet in equal portion. 
He then moved into this...
So sad to see the Democrats sticking up for people who speak so badly of our Country and who, in addition, hate Israel with a true and unbridled passion. Whenever confronted, they call their adversaries, including Nancy Pelosi, “RACIST.” Their disgusting language.......and the many terrible things they say about the United States must not be allowed to go unchallenged. If the Democrat Party wants to continue to condone such disgraceful behavior, then we look even more forward to seeing you at the ballot box in 2020!

then this:

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions! If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S. “We all know that AOC and this crowd are a bunch of Communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own Country, they’re calling the guards along our Border (the Border Patrol Agents) Concentration Camp Guards, they accuse people who support Israel as doing it for the Benjamin’s,.......they are Anti-Semitic, they are Anti-America, we don’t need to know anything about them personally, talk about their policies. I think they are American citizens who are duly elected that are running on an agenda that is disgusting, that the American people will reject..........What does it mean for America to have free Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants, no criminalization of coming into our Country - See how that works for controlling Immigration! They talk about Israel like they’re a bunch of thugs, not victims of the entire region. They wanted......to impeach President Trump on DAY ONE. Make them the face of the future of the Democrat Party, you will destroy the Democrat Party. Their policies will destroy our Country!” Need I say more? We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country....
July 15th was a busy day in twitter world.

Wonder what Ihlan Omar has to say about Hodan this morning, or like yesterday, or even the day before that?  what? like  nothing?   Read her feed for yourself, but only if you are on an empty stomach...go here.

But you would think Ihlan would have some stronger words to use with regards to what IS happening  in her home country, for that's what Somalia truly is -- her one, true, home country; and it's a crappy,  sh@*hole country as it falls apart today.   

To say that Ihlan would not have the liberty to say what she wants to say in Somalia, against the atrocities going on there, against the acts of terrorism upon her home country and people every single day, is an understatement.  She would be attacked, if not killed, if she tried to improve conditions on the ground. let alone aim to improve the Somali government.   SHE would be murdered, just like the Canadian-Somali Journalist --  the one who was pregnant and nearly about to give birth -- Hodan.


We may be a diverse country, but the thing is, America works because -- on our best days -- we aim to assimilate, to become one American culture, as one body of citizens.  There is no white America, black America, brown, red, yellow America; America is designed to be color blind, race blind, religious blind, gender blind....and so on and so on. (Remember some of that from Barack Hussein Obama?...of course you do, it was the speech that led him into the spotlight at the 2004 Democratic Convention.)

A perfect example of what is racist and/or discriminating, is thinking that everyone of a certain color should vote a certain way.  And it goes something like this:

 "We don’t need any more brown faces 
that don’t want to be a brown voice. 
We don’t need black faces 
that don’t want to be a black voice. 
We don’t need Muslims
 that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. 
We don’t need queers 
that don’t want to be a queer voice”


You are all welcome to come on over to the other side any day of the week, just sayin'.
Wish I was seeing the president tweet a response to this!

Are her words uniting or dividing us, as a people, as a whole?

but thank you, to the people's representative, Ayanna Pressley, democrat from Massachusetts, for making it so easy to understand how ya'll roll in the squad.  Appreciate the refreshing, raw honesty.  (for more on this, go here)  You can bet she sounds like a racist through and through, even if she isn't.

I wonder what would happen if Trump actually called Rashida Talib a motherf*&er...it's just her words, not mine.  January 4th, 2019 -- "we're going to impeach the motherfucker."  Is it because he is white and is fighting to protect America's foundations?  You can bet she sounds like a racist, too, even if she isn't.

oh but let's return to Ihlan Omar, from one immigrant to another (although illegal!), and in her own words:

"If you are an undocumented immigrant, 
please know that you are 
in my thoughts and that I will keep fighting 
to make our immigration system 
welcome all who seek a better life in our country."

You say this, and in the next breath or on another day, you dare say, "I probably love this country more than anyone who was naturally born... I want America the great to be America the great."

When, in fact, your first allegiance, Ihlan, should be to American citizens, American sovereignty, and America's protection and security, including securing the border. 

And if you cared so much, how come you have voted, alongside your fellow democrats, EIGHTY times against a true blue Humanitarian Aid package to bring about improvements to the border chaos?

Not to mention another fact,  Ihlan -- that America's immigration system is the most open and welcoming in the entire world!  And this goes without saying, but will say it anyway -- the truth is, people immigrate to America because the whole world sees something in America that they like, that they want.  America must be doing something right, right?

My home country origins run the scope of England along with a good portion of European descent, west to east, east to west.  I don't want to go back... to any of my home ancestral counties.  I love America and I'm an American girl through and through. 

And NO, Ihlan -- you don't love America more than me.  Not even close.   I can say so based upon two things -- evidence of my 1010 blogs addressed to Dear America vs. your evidence of a nasty twitter feed.  Neither the color of my skin or yours has anything to do with it.

Is America perfect?  Of course not.
Show me a country without issues.... without a history... without reprehensible acts peppering the landscape with indiscretions, injustices,  and corruption...  and I'll tell you you're a liar.

hmmm wonder how Somalia fits into this conversation
No wonder you left.
No wonder you get so hostile if you are threatened with the idea of going back.

As much as I hate the over consumption of who hates what and why, I  must say, I like that we are having the conversation.  And I'm not a racist if I happen to side on the side of this American president.

Certainly, there are days when we expect more from our elected officials, ALL of them- - including our president; but when it comes to Trump, we expected no less.   He is fighting for AMERICA, and is willing to take the hits, left right and center.

The thing is --
Open borders will not make us more compassionate, as a people
Free college tuition will not make us smarter, as a people
Universal Healthcare will not make us healthier, as a people
Higher taxation will not make us richer, as a people of this glorious republic
and we can go on, but I'll leave it at this...

Taking the long view, indiscriminately throwing around the label "racist" will only desensitize us to the ugly reality of witnessing true racism and prolong our ability to come together as a people, as a country, as any group of  300 million decent human beings, striving to live in harmony, in a republic, in a democracy, alike, can be.

I think a long hard look into the mirror and quickly forgetting what color of skin we were born with, might be a good idea right about now.  enough already.

love this country or leave....amen
and this may sound totally out of left field, but if you don't love and respect this country, perhaps one should reconsider which soccer team to play for....but most especially stand and salute the flag during the playing of the team's anthem, duh (and for another view from Prager U dude, Dennis Prager -- go here!)
Love this country, in thought word and deed....amen


Make it a Good Day -- and nobody gets hurt,

It's a Good Day to be Back Thing

Dear America,

Happy Belated Birthday to the ATB...
 America the Beautiful...
with love and admiration, bae, from the G

so this girl was gone for a good chunk of the calendar...hit the wild blue yonder and never looked back, so it would seem.  Hail to the gap between June 21st through the 10th, yo

But surely, all's well that ends, as my mama says --  so here I am, finally, and all the while still stumbling for the right words in this process of getting all my wheels on the ground and coming to a complete stop before unbuckling my seat belt and jumping back into my life full steam ahead.

Yes, long gone is the steam engine.  good point.  


speaking of steam, oh to celebrating the nation's holiday of America's Independence in the city where it all happens -- in Washington DC!  It surely did not disappoint! 

Timing is everything and talk about fireworks. 

Yikes to the Nike's for caving into a false narrative of our founding and making a total mess of a certain HERstory -- namely, of Betsy Ross (and that link there, is a good one...love my Star Parker, you go girl).   Truth be told, although there were many women doing their thing way in the background way back when, Betsy was, like, you know, the one and only true symbol of women taking an active part in the American Revolution.

Colin, like, I thought your beef was with police brutality against the black man?  How did we go from that to this -- a full blown, knock down, war against America herself?

TO be clear, and to be more bold, offering up a little context that many of you might understand a wee bit better --  this Betsy flag --  the one celebrating our thirteen fire breathing colonies posturing to wreak havoc upon the king and queens across the pond.... that flag...that flag was like the first Rainbow flag!  k, ya dig?  You get it now?

Shame on you, Colin -- and how you got away with it, I have no idea. 

Every women's organization should be throwing down shade one after the other, every which way to Sunday and back,  upon this disgraceful show of disrespect...talk about misogyny!  Where's the ESPY award for that, cuz Nike and Colin are all tied up right about now and it's gonna be a photo finish.   And especially as we are coming into this new season,  of celebrating a woman's right to vote -- the 100th anniversary in August 2020 no less! 

Oh, but to diss Betsy like so, to diss the first flag, to diss our long struggle of fighting for the freedoms every single one of us ridiculously enjoy every day...this first flag, celebrating the 13 colonies joining forces against pure oppression, against England, meant something so much bigger than Colin is even capable of recognizing, let alone understanding.  And same goes for that Nike guy and CEO, Mark Parker.  If you hate America so much, then maybe you two should consider living somewhere else.  Maybe, just maybe, you should stop exploiting Americans by making money off of such lies and steam engine fodder and go live the rest of your days, say, in Venezuela. 

Colin -- would it have been better if the revolution didn't work out so well?  If perhaps, this land and your land, in the company of so much of the royal colonization around the world, was STILL under the control of Great Britain and the Church of England?   Would that have been a better ending to the war that ultimately revolutionized the entire globe? 

Oh let the good steam roll...


You, dear Colin, are an idiot -- an ignorant, left-brained, small-minded peddler of nothing more than perversions of  America's truths, not only dating back to our founding, but including and up through the current day's climate,  which virtually binds us and buries us in untruths and fake news all the live long day.


it's exhausting already.  Calgon take me away.

And in other news in the hot and steam department -- how about this hummahummadamndinger:

picture a girl in a t-shirt, (not wet) and across her chest reads this:

CAPITALISM IS
UNSUSTAINABLE

rich in irony, right?

but quite poor in substantive proof, you know, given what actually happened after the doors were blown off, revealing more wealth and sustenance for more people, for more the world over, through the makings of industry outside agriculture with the industrial revolution!

As one good and steamy revolution turns into another...and another...


Here's hoping capitalism is so unsustainable for y'all who made the shirt, that the shirt doesn't sell!

But seriously, hail to the nitwits bashing capitalism while enjoying the benefits of capitalism, using the tools of capitalism, and marketing through all the capitalized social networks available to sell this kind of nonsense, right?

If bashing capitalism is so woke -- these yokels should at least start with everything "made in china," just sayin' --  at which point, full steam ahead with making your point to Apple, Google, Microsoft, um GEICO...um, Mickey D's....um what else, oh yeah, Nike, that should have been numero uno.....Adidas, Levi-Strauss...then there is Starbucks.... Ford, Chevrolet, Amtrak, United Airlines....yeah yeah.  the list goes on and on and on and on and on. 

let's just stop making everything and live in tee-pees and begin eating off the prairie, starting, like, yesterday.  I'm in.

oh let the good steam roll...

The thing is, THIS is why teaching history, HERstory, is so freeeking important!  CONTEXT is everything.   The era, itself, is meaningful.  The culture of the day gives credence to the day.  And fortunately, all things continue to change over time itself.    Betsy Ross, being a Quaker, was a fighter against slavery; she was on the right side of history, even while history revealed serious faults throughout the struggle of equality for all.

The thing is --  we learn so much when we are learned people and understand from which we all came --  the good, the bad, and the ugly notwithstanding.  (Oh to witness the books from Thomas J's personal library, all I wanted to do was break the glass and smell the pages of a book he once turned; an incredible place the Library of Congress, put that on your bucket list if you have not gone already. but I digress.)

 
Hail to the few and the proud who purchased the Nike Betsy Ross Sneaker before it was pulled; going to their capitalism war chest of tools and ammo, some scored $2000 on the after market collector's market instantly created upon her loss.    Isn't capitalism rich?  indeed.

This girl had a Fourth of July to remember back in the District of Columbia, leaving footprints all over the city, from DAR Headquarters and Constitution Hall, crossing the ellipse umpteen times, to visiting our National Cathedral, to the Library of Congress, to the rooftop of my darling daughter's first apartment (a roof with a view that spans all the way from the National Cathedral, all the way across town... where steeples peek out from the treetops, to the nation's Capitol building rising up against the twilight sky, to the Washington Monument, to the Kennedy Center and the majestic Potomac, all with a fireworks show that lit up hearts and minds in equal portion, no matter rich or poor, all over town).

Although every day was met with an unimaginable level of hot and steamy temperatures, making it unbearably difficult to truly enjoy the great outdoors, I must say, capitalism is alive and well in this fine American neck of the woods.  Alive and well.  What a beautiful thing to behold.

so that's all I got.
time for a hot steam before heading to work; scratch that, gonna go to work first, then return to a hot steam for my reward.   oh life is good.

And the whole truth is -- America is good -- and the more we emphasize the good, the good-er we all get.

Make it a Good Day, G
