do you feel it?
I'm not quite sure how to describe the confusion I feel at the moment.  I realize this blog is not dedicated to politics, but it is mine and I can do what I please.  Many of you are probably aware of this whole Chik-Fil-A ridiculousness going on all across the good ol' U. S. of A.  For me personally, the thought of eating that food knowing where (or rather NOT knowing where) it comes from, how the animals are treated, how the meat is prepared and grease-i-fied for your eating pleasure, is enough of a turnoff.  Chicken nuggets are not my thing.  But beyond that, knowing that by paying them for their fast food, I would be contributing to the promotion of hate, my Chik-Fil-A appetite is no more.

On top of the anti-gay funding, I have also learned about the Eat More Kale fiasco, and how CFA continues its hot legal pursuit of a guy in Vermont who prints (in his house) shirts that apparently rival the slogan "Eat More Chikin".  REALLY???

Then there's this whole voter ID business.  Let's try everything in our power to disenfranchise the Obama voters.  Take away one of the only ways people have to feel included in our national debates.  Let's move our country backwards.

Don't get me wrong, I am glad (after being reminded by an old friend who lives in a much different nation) to live in a country where we have opportunities, healthcare, clean water, mandatory public education.  But why are there so many people here intent on hating others?

I wonder if just one of these haters had a major life crisis and found a community of people immediately activated in their support, perhaps they might value community differently?

I do believe in the power of community love and passionate people.  And not for nothing, I do believe we are here on this planet to help each other get through tough times.  If you're not helping, at least get out of the way.

Your good news for the day:  Judah had his yearly check up today for a kidney condition he was born with (discovered in utero).  The doctor looked at his ultrasound and could not detect a problem!  His kidneys are gorgeous and lovely and he no longer needs to see the specialist.  Luck and love.  Hallelujah!
