Rebuilding America


For
years many conservatives, and even most in government have been browbeaten for their beliefs.Many are now
afraid to say anything because they think no one agrees with them, and
they fear being called an old foggie.

Many of the so called conservative politicians have become more concerned about keeping their cushy job than they are doing the right thing and standing up for what they believe. Hence,in many cases, we have no one to speak for us in Washington.


I’ve discovered that when I come in contact with someone I believe to
be conservative, if I open up first, they will then chime in and start
agreeing with me. Many times I can’t shut them up,I find  it has been many
years since they have stated their opinion for fear of reprisal.

We
have to get past the name calling and ignore it,when they call us names it is only because of their own insecurities.

 Stop worrying about
someone getting mad at you. I have people mad at me, and I wish they
weren’t , however, they will get over it. I have been upset before , and
I got over it.

I
remember some of my  ancestors,they didn’t much care if we agreed with
them or not, they stated their opinions and their word was final.

 I would rather have someone upset with me and possibly calling me names,  than  live in a country where I wasn’t free.

Most
of us can’t individually change the whole world, we can only affect our
own circle of influence. In this way, it’s  like network
marketing, we get one and they get one,and so on, soon many people have joined us in our efforts.


There seems to be a trend where states and municipalities are starting
to fight back against the federal government. The people are finally getting
tired of being bullied by big brother.

 Our individual efforts and voices
are beginning to pay off. Maybe  in time through our individual efforts ,
we will reestablish a balance of power and bring freedom back to
America.

Feminism and Marital Discourse


In
this day and age there is much said about women not being under the
control of a man. The argument always comes down to some male jerk doing
something he shouldn’t have done to a woman and she responds in a
militant way, much to the approval of everyone in attendance.


While
I agree, there isn’t anyone who should be under the control of another,
there are limits. When you are in a relationship, married or otherwise
it has always been my belief you should try to cooperate and act in a
manner that is beneficial to each. If your mate does something that is
unacceptable, it should be discussed and the issue resolved, if
possible. Doing something for someone doesn’t mean you are under their
control.


Being
militant and demanding your rights will only create animosity and will
do nothing to make the relationship better. Just because you do
something for the other person they like doesn’t mean you are under
their control. It isn’t demeaning to iron clothes or fix a meal.


The
situation that brought this to my attention : a lady I know  was
discussing her grandparents, and an event that occurred some time ago.
It seems the husband didn’t like the way his wife ironed his shirts, and
wrinkled one of them up and threw it down the stairs in disgust,
exclaiming he didn’t like the way she ironed his shirts.


Grannie
got the message , learned from the event and proclaimed she would never
iron another shirt, and didn’t. It was hailed as a great victory for
feminism. Boy, did she show him. But what did she show him. Let him iron
his own shirts. She’s being just as chauvinistic as he is.


Well,
if she feels that way, maybe she should go out and plow the fields and
grow her own food. She can also cut her own wood for the stove to keep
herself warm. I’m sure that over time there was plenty he did that she
didn’t approve of and I’m sure she went out of her way to voice her
opinion about it.


Without
question, grandpa acted in an unacceptable manner, however Grannie’s
response was worse. She dug her heels in and by her actions created an
unresolvable situation. I’m sure grandpa also dug his heels in and as a
result, I doubt if there ever was much harmony in that house again.


I
don’t know what else happened before this little escapade, but grannie
was granted her independence , she was now a free independent  woman,
supposedly in total control over her husband,but what price did she pay?


It’s
not about control, it’s about doing something for someone else the way
they like, and thus trying to please them. What is wrong with that?


When
you are in any relationship there has to be give and take.If you aren’t
ready to do that, if you want complete independence and be under no
one’s (control), maybe you shouldn’t be in a relationship.
