Ass or Elephant?


Whew! It’s been awhile. I might be a little rusty so be patient.  Been quite a week these past 7 days. Elections, NBA, and of course football.  But lets talk whats on everyone’s mind. Elections or more appropriately, the results.

ImageEveryone knows there are three things you don’t discuss: money (or sex), politics, and religion.  Here at BLFC we do our best to discuss everything, so these topics are never too much for us.  For me personally, I don’t discuss my political beliefs simply because most people either a.) Can’t hold up their end of the argument or b.) are so caught up in the argument they can’t reasonably agree to disagree.  I tend to fall towards the first, but not because I don’t care, because if I did as much research as I’d like to, I’d become so disheartened and frustrated that I’d rather stay ignorant and foolish. So in light of that, I am republican and yes, I voted for Romney/Ryan.  Not because I think abortion should be banned, we can discuss my stance on that at later date, but because they more closely line up with my personal beliefs than the democrats do. I don’t care if my president is white, black, hispanic, or whatever else. I do care that he sticks to his word and does his best to improve America.

In my eyes it’s what can I do for my country NOT what my country can do for me…which sadly, is where I believe most of the population is going…how much help can I get off the government so I don’t have to struggle to find a job or pay my bills, or do the work to figure out what healthcare coverage is best for me and why I need a job to afford it. SMH. Please don’t misunderstand me, I know personally, that there are many people who struggle with finding a job and truly need government programs for food and a roof over their heads. But there are also those who lazily would rather depend on someone else than standing on their own two feet as difficult as it might be.  These are the people who get my wrath.  Perhaps we can all take a note from the Michigan man who suffered cardiac arrest while voting. CPR was performed and he was revived, and before they took him to the hospital he asked his wife to ensure that he had voted. Yes people. This man died, was brought back to life, and still wanted to make sure he voted. Now obviously I don’t know who he voted for, but the fact that his vote mattered so much to him?! Kudos my brother.

OK. Enough political talk. Shake it off.

Did you hear about the Chicago fans who traveled to Nashville for the Bears Vs. Titans game this past week?? Not only did they see the Bears demolish the Titans they also cleaned some out their taverns of tapped beer! As a Packer fan and Wisconsinite I gotta say–we need to step it up people! Bears fans are getting headlines as drunks! Is Wisconsin not #1 on that list? We’re slacking and I am ashamed. I too need to pick up the slack. Bottoms up Packer fans, whether it’s PBR, Milwaukee’s Best, or Miller Lite, use this bye week to prepare and make GB proud!

Lets finish with a quick NBA roll up (we have to get back to our mundane lives) so thanks for sharing your time with me.  Miami is on fire, Brown is out in LA after a 1-4 start (who knew!?), Nash is hurt, and is anyone talking about the Bucks? I know my brother is. As for me, I’ll be Keeping my eye out for Lam-Lam and Khloe Kardashian.

Stay safe out there people. Don’t drive drunk, and whether you’re democrat, republican, or anything in between, be grateful for the ability to vote, to cast your opinion and have the freedom to speak out. Pray for those who would take advantage of that and for those who use it inappropriately. Remember: “One Nation Under God.” You might not like it, but its the foundation that built this great country. We’d all do well to keep that front and center.

Oh! And if you want a nice pick-me-up this week check out the new addition above my hubby and I acquired. Isn’t she cute!? #DoubleD
