Kevin and Jennifer Lawver's blog about whatever we want to talk about.
I suppose that in Washington, you’re only as moral as the last bill you voted on.
The Shiavo case just irks me from the standpoint of ‘Big Brother’ watching and interfering in the last little detail of everything. And teh parents bug me too, that they would do all this just seems sad.
Well, I’ve been waiting for a place to type this and since we are on the “what a country” post, I have my chance.
I have a HUGE problem with the fact that the child rapist/murdered, Couey, who was a CONVICTED child molester, with a 30 year criminal history, was able to walk around freely and yet Martha Stewart has a monitoring device. WHAT kind of sense does this make?! How can I be proud to be American, to find strength and hope in our system when we do this?! A convicted child molester is asked nicely to check in with his parole officer when he gets a chance and Martha Stewart is the one we put an ankle monitor on?!?!?! HELP ME to understand this, please! I think I know. She lied about money… it’s all about the mighty dollar. Children? Seriously, talk about them being left behind…
Canada would welcome you with open arms and dancing in the streets, you know…
So that’s the answer. If you don’t like the country, get out- don’t point out that change needs to occur? So cliche.
I’m sure it was an invitation from our friendly neighbors up north (Neil’s Canadian, eh), not a call to abandon the “homeland” (does anyone else hate that term?).
Thank you, Kevin. Didn’t realize Neil was Canadian. But apparently, they won’t take me!
Which term, “homeland”? Yeah, that makes me cringe a little every time I hear it. But at least Bush & Ridge knew enough to not pick “fatherland” (although suddenly I’m picturing the two of them sitting around in the Oval Office singing ‘Tomorrow Belongs to Me’)…
