My head is exploding.  I am on Facebook and Twitter and follow so many progressive and liberal blogs, tweets and sites that every day I am bombarded with articles about all the "dreck" the 'Rethugs' spit out.  I listen to progressive radio, especially in the car, and wonder how I haven't yet wrapped myself around a pole listening to what all those right wing nuts are up to.  I'm trying to figure out how to squelch the vomit impulse I feel when I read or listen to their craziness.  I go on some websites of the right and leave quickly to head to the bathroom.

I write to my Senators and Representatives and let them have it on issues, I sign petitions with sites like MoveOn, etc.  I blog and tweet my head off.  I am slowly getting followers from the enemy camp so I must be getting under someone's skin!  My AZ politicians do not speak for me, do not represent all.  It's as if I have no voice.

If only I could find SOME common ground with the other side.  But it is absolutely incredible that there isn't one thing I agree with them on except a need to reduce the federal budget.  But their Draconian approach to everything is beyond the pale.

Why is it the Rethugs want to take away only from the poor, the working class, the frail, the aged, the children, the sick, the veterans, the college kids, education.  What have they taken away from the rich?  What?  They keep throwing money and tax breaks at corporations.  And none of them have created the jobs the Rethugs keep saying those tax breaks will do.  None!

They are slithering snakes in the grass with addlepated brains, hell bent on bringing to its knees anyone or anything that does not look, or think like them.  If they, those crazy Rethugs, ever get their way, this will be a White, Christian nation reminiscent of the 18th century and the rest of the world will shun the U.S.


  1. Reisa, I empathize with your dilemma. So much information and so much to do. For me, it's not letting the hatriots infect my soul. Love your style...

  2. Thanks for your comment, Michael. I believe that I, along with those who believe that a more humane & equitable country must exist, must continue to write and speak out against those who would suppress those who don't think like them. There is room for agreement, compromise & negotiation but with intellect, compassion, understanding, tolerance & caring, none of which the Republicans/Tea Partiers have.
