Pissed beyond belief…

I woke up this morning to the phone ringing. It was mom. She was a bit upset, as she had just received an email from my Aunt Jacquie. Apparently, My cousin Brian saw a bulletin I had sent on Myspace about the double standards in the current Presidential campaign. He emailed it to my aunt saying I had EMAILED it to him, when in fact, I did not. They were appalled, and I don’t see why. My aunt then emailed my mom saying, “Hi, Denise.  Did you know this is the way that Aimee is thinking?  She’s scaring Brian, and now she’s scaring me!  I’m going to have to let her know not to send Brian e-mails endorsing Obama.  Me neither. Jacquie” I couldn’t believe it. My opinion, though it differs from hers, is not scary. Also, I can’t believe that neither she nor my cousin, Brian, had the respect to email me. I am a 30 year old woman and I have the right to defend myself, not have my mommy do it for me. Now for my mom. I have the world’s best mother. She is also, like Aunt J and Brian, a supporter for John McCain. Our political views could not me more different. But my mom, who disagrees with my views immensely, stood up for me. She understands that our views differ and respects my ability to make an intelligent and informed decision. She may not agree, but she raised my sister and I to believe in something and stand for what we believe in, no matter the adversity we face. She is my greatest supporter and ally. I used to think that my Aunt J was also, but I guess I was mistaken. That not only makes me mad, but it breaks my heart as well. She just learned that I am not the person she thought I was, but I learned the same about her and Brian. So, here is the bulletin that I posted that scared Brian and Aunt J:

Black teen pregnancies? A ‘crisis’ in black America.
White teen pregnancies? A ‘blessed event.’

If you grow up in Hawaii you’re ‘exotic.’
Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, you’re the quintessential ‘American story.’

Similarly, if you name your kid Barack you’re ‘unpatriotic.’
Name your kids Trig and Track, you’re ‘colorful.’

If you’re a Democrat and you make a VP pick without fully vetting the individual you’re ‘reckless.’
A Republican who doesn’t fully vet is a ‘maverick.’

If you spend 3 years as a community organizer growing your organization from a staff of 1 to 13 and your budget from $70,000 to $400,000, then become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review,create a voter regstration drive that registers 150,000 new African Amerian voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor,then spend nearly 8 more years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, becoming chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, then spend nearly 4 years in the United States Senaterepresenting a state of nearly 13 million people, sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you are woefully inexperienced.
If you spend 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, then spend 20 months as the governor of a state with 650,000 people, you’ve got the most executive experience of anyone on either ticket, are the Commander in Chief of the Alaska military and are well qualified to lead the nation should you be called upon to do so because your state is the closest state to Russia.

If you are a Demoratic male candidate who is popular with millions of people you are an ‘arrogant celebrity’.
If you are a popular Republican female candidate you are ‘energizing the base’.

If you are a younger male candidate who thinks for himself and makes his own decisions you are ‘presumptuous’.
If you are an older male candidate who makes last minute decisions you refuse to explain, you are a ‘shoot from the hip’ maverick.

If you are a candidate with a Harvard law degree you are ‘an elitist ‘out of touch’ with the real America.
If you are a legacy (dad and granddad were admirals) graduate of Annapolis, with multiple disciplinary infractions you are a hero.

If you manage a multi-million dollar nationwide campaign, you are an ’empty suit’.
If you are a part time mayor of a town of 7000 people, you are an ‘experienced executive’.

If you go to a south side Chicago church, your beliefs are ‘extremist’.
If you believe in creationism and don’t believe gobal warming is man made, you are ‘strongly principled’.

If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.
If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years with whom you are raising two beautiful daughters you’re ‘risky’.

If you’re a black single mother of 4 who waits for 22 hours after her water breaks to seek medical attention, you’re an irresponsible parent, endangering the life of your unborn child.
But if you’re a white married mother who waits 22 hours, you’re spunky.

If you’re a 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton, the right-wing press calls you ‘First dog.’
If you’re a 17-year old pregnant unwed daughter of a Republican, the right-wing press calls you ‘beautiful’ and ‘courageous..’

If you kill an endangered species, you’re an excellent hunter.
If you have an abortion you’re not a christian, you’re a murderer ( forget about if it happened while being date raped)

If you teach abstinence only in sex education, you get teen parents.
If you teach responsible age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

 

 

With Peace and Abundance, 

 

Aimée
