Posts I Liked and Wanted to Share

I find it interesting how quickly many Americans rush to judgement when it comes to President Obama.  While I often criticize Republicans for their attitude towards the president, Democrats are often just as quick to throw backlash his way whenever it seems he might be doing something they disagree with.

The moment a situation comes up where liberals don’t fully agree with his stance, they seem to freak out. Like his budget proposal he made public a few months ago (which included a chained CPI that liberals did not support), and now more recently his comments about his desire to seek Congressional approval for military involvement in Syria.

I 100% agree with what this first segment has to say. Unfortunately this is how a large majority of American politics works, as we have all seen very clearly over the past five years of Obama’s presidency. I think this post does a really good job of taking the time to try and get into the President’s head and see it from his point of view. It makes you look at him more as a human being rather than just some figurehead, which is something I think a lot of us forget when it comes to big important people such as the President. We forget that they are human beings just like us. He doesn’t have some life handbook that gives him all of the answers to the problems we all face each and everyday. He’s on the same floating spaceship we call Earth, and just like everyone else he’s trying to make the best of it.

I know it’s a touchy subject for a lot of people, and there’s so much other content out there, but this one really stood out to me and I wanted to share it with you guys because I want more people to read it. Seriously, go read it.

What do you think of it? And if I dare ask, what do you think of the whole situation with Syria in general? Let me know below, I’d love to hear what you guys have to say.

Okay guys I’m gonna be real for a second.

So that alphabet soup of an acronym for lgbtqaaiwhateverthefrick+ is getting a little out of hand. And if you keep adding more letters to it to please more people, double of that is going to come asking for a bandage on their butthurt and demanding a letter of their very own.

Why don’t we just call it WEGAF, ‘We Give A Fuck.’ We do not care who you are, what you identify as, or where you came from; we give a fuck about you as a person and what rights you should have as a human being.

This is a post my sister wrote on her tumblr that I feel should be shared with the world. There is also another post here that discusses a similar idea. I figured I would share it with you guys because, like I said, it’s something that I would like to see more widely discussed. What do you guys think? Let me know! 🙂
