What Is Happening to US!

I've never wanted this blog to be a place to air politics. I still don't. But I am afraid. I can't watch the news anymore, I can't hear what is happening in our country. I've never seen such division, such hate, prejudice, heard such hateful fear mongering, and never thought I would in the United States. United. That's what we used to be. But not anymore. Far right conservatives striking fear into every one's hearts, spreading their propaganda, I feel like the days of Nazi Germany have returned, only we are the targets this time. I fear for our President, who by the way is NOT the anti-Christ, and I fear for the black members of congress who are facing threats, racial slurs, violence and hatred. I fear for a country that has senators who can block congressional hearings at will, totally ignoring the needs of the people they were elected to represent. I fear for my family,and yours, who will suffer from the results of this upheaval, from those who have such disregard and disrespect for the people they serve. I want no comments to this from those who believe that this type of treatment is o.k., is deserved, or warranted. I've already heard your side. I ask all of you to please pray. Pray hard. For our leaders, for our President, and for us.

It may be an unpopular view in blogland, but I TOTALLY agree with you.
He is our President. We asked for change. What is this, we take one step forward and 3 steps back??
People, what are we teaching our children about respect, about the value of listening, about valuses at all?

Yes, please pray..for ALL OF US..

I do not condone the hate thats being spread (BY BOTH SIDES!!!!!) but I cannot support what I dont believe in. So I will respect your wishes and not comment any further because I do NOT believe in our President!
