#SoCS: Political Passion Hurts Feelings But Heals Communities


Any time I speak of politics I hear ‘you’re too intense.’ ‘You’re too controversial.’ ‘I’m not interested in politics any more.’ Well, buddy, politics is interested in YOU.

Medium.com recently deemed Nixon the worst President ever. However, less than 70 days into office, Trump and #russiagate are looking to be at Watergate level. Not to mention his trial for FRAUD was just given a final judgement and he must pay off $25 Million to the plaintiffs he defrauded with his fake Trump University. Meh. Who cares, huh?

What is wrong with people? Is this a qualified sitting President? One who rode the backs of the White Supremacists, Evangelicals and uneducated Whites into office (now there’s an interesting mix…or are they so different? Hmm…).

#SoCS: My Men

There is a man in my life I love dearly but he has me blocked off everywhere. Ironically, it’s because of my last SoCS post. I have found out some news; some wonderful, exciting, thrilling news and I want more than anything to have this man open the doors of communication again.

There’s a man in my life whom I don’t know where we’re headed. We care about each other. I’ve kept our relationship very private and it’s gone on for a long time now. He’s witty and egotistical. Enduring and exasperating. I’m sure I am worse;)

Yesterday, instead of focusing on #NotMyPresident‘s Day, I did something non-hateful and spent some time enjoying National Love Your Pet Day. I posed for some super-lovey-dovey pics with #hillarythecat and encouraged others to send me their snap shots of themselves and their pets.

Dear Hillary

You told us we needed a champion in the White House. We still do. You promised you would fight for us if we fought for you. We NEED you to fight now; to dare to compete.

In 2004, I was part of a group that pushed for you to be president but you were not ready to run. I was only age 21. In 2008, after it became clear your primary victory wouldn’t be a shoo in, I had invested years and yeas in my education, earning two BAs, an MA and was in my last year of law school, but I dropped my semester to run around the country for your campaign.
