After the Convention

I enjoyed those parts of the Republican convention I was able to watch. Much of it hit a cord for me... made me want to take another look at Romney and Ryan. I hope adding Ryan was a good move... I originally thought another would be best suited.

It annoys me to find out that people think Romney's comment about calling on an American for the really big stuff is a comment that Obama is not American. Not everything is about Obama! And it seems to me that those who read that crap into what was clearly a thank you to Neil Armstrong actually have their doubts about Obama's place of birth or they wouldn't keep bringing it up.

ROMNEY: Tonight that American flag is still there on the moon, and I don't doubt for a second that Neil Armstrong's spirit is still with us -- that unique blend of optimism, humility, and the utter confidence that when the world needs someone to do the really big stuff, you need an


For example, much like when someone singles out an individual or group and claims they are against gays. Most of the time, I can't tell if someone is gay or not gay. I don't think to myself "gee, I wonder if that person is gay". I treat everyone the same. 

But apparently there are people out there that make a big distinction between gay or not gay and they are usually the ones pointing fingers and yelling intolerance. They are the ones who distinguish... they are the haters among us. 

Granted, there are those who truly do hate people who are gay or any number of reasons to hate another or a group of people. Those people are not the majority of humans... they are the minority... they are the true haters; them and those who continually pull us apart.

So after the convention I am left baffled, once again, as to why certain people feel the desire to tear us apart and form us into groups that are separate. We are the same... we are human... but to them we are numbers, sexual persuasions, religious groups, skin color, pro-this, pro-that... they WANT us to be against one another so they can control us. 

Don't let them!



May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
