This has been a difficult week in the political sphere. The tone of political discourse has become totally foul and ugly and I blame many on the left for it. The problem seems to be that we can't courteously disagree. I am in complete agreement with the following quotes from Mark Steyn and I have provided the video sources from which they come. I double dog dare you to listen.
If you don't want to have the debate, you're the fascist; if you're wearing a mask and beating up people at a book launch, you're the fascist; if you're sending a female professor to hospital, you're the fascist. ~Mark Steyn
(Oddly enough, I am not allowed to embed it. I am invited to try again later, which I certainly shall.)
Right, and if you're shooting Republican senators at a baseball practice or cheering about it, you're the fascist. If you are pretending to stab the President or decapitate him, you are the fascist. (Sorry, I know the word should be capitalized, but I refuse to do it.)
We don't actually need unity; we need robust, civilized disunity.
Now wouldn't that make the best sense of all? Imagine...robust and civilized. We can all heed this good advice.

from last night's speech to a joint session of Congress:
My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America.
And a hearty amen to that. Finally, finally, finally, a president who knows his job.

To all the politicians, donors and special interests, hear these words from me today: there is only one core issue in the immigration debate and it is this: the well-being of the American people. Nothing even comes a close second. ~ Donald Trump

As more folks find this place, I thought it would be interesting to share a post from 2010 that illustrates my evolution from being on the front page to now when I keep things on a back page. I do this so no one feels compelled to comment. (Comments are not allowed here.) We have been through (and still are in) a period of time when many are quite certain that punishment has been doled out to those who speak up in a political way.
I am, by nature, a political gal. I enjoy the discussion and I like to keep up with what goes on. If we visited in person, you'd know that quite quickly. So"Let's Get Political" is my way of not being too forceful on the average reader. For some crazy reason, I have attracted a lot of liberal leaning readers whom I love, but with whom I do not agree. Consider this page my attempt to be true to who I am.

We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it.~Patrick Henry
So you have found IT again. Yes, this is the repository for my thoughts through the coming four years: 2013–2017. My thoughts will be placed here in this one post with a date. The ticker of the national debt will continue to fire off at the bottom. Newer posts will be at the top. If you want to comment about anything you see here, feel free to email me as comments here are closed.
Often, one can settle down after an election when realizing that, while things may not be to one's liking, everything will level out. Not this time. This time there has been a decided shift and if you are a reader of persons, you know this well. You, too, can hear and see it in "the tone." Be wary, pay close attention, and stay well.
