Ugh!

I debated on writing this post, but I am not one who is quiet about my political mind. (By the way I have already been interrupted 3 times in writing this, sheesh! doesn't ER know I am busy and the 20-year olds they have down there are not having heart attacks. Trust me). Anywho I have been able to push the election out of my mind and enjoy the holidays but alas tomorrow (inauguration, blech!) day is looming and I am all spit and vinegar. I just DO NOT like Obama. I am very anxious and worried about the "change" he wants to bring about. My Dad says he won't be able to meet his campaign promises and all I can say it, PLEASE DON'T! My greatest blessing would be if he is a pansy and does nothing he committed to do. The greatest thing weighing on my mind tonight is his commitment to have his very first act as president to be passing the Freedom of Choice Act. I have signed the petition and will pray excessively that this will not happen. Maybe some of you will join me. Why you ask? Because this act will make abortion easier and more accessible in every possible way. Minor, sure you can get an abortion without parental consent, too far along--partial birth abortion (how disgusting can you get?) is fine for you, your state is quite stringent, not any more!, your doctor doesn't perform abortions? We'll make him or we'll take his license. I have been morally against abortions as long as I have known what they were but since having children my disgust for the practice has increased exponentially. It is murder of the most innocent blood and I am not ashamed to say it disgusts me. It is wrong, that's all there is. And this man wants to make it easy and cheap. If that doesn't make you question his character, I don't know what will. There are PLENTY of other things I disagree with him on but this is my topic for today. Heaven help us (please!).

I agree, Heidi. "Change" isn't always a good thing. I'm afraid things are just going to go from bad to worse. I *hate* how everyone acts like he is a celebrity, more than a president elect (well, now pres, I guess). I *hate* how everyone is so, I don't know, enthralled/enamored/swayed/excited, etc. by him. I look at everything going on around us and think, "Wow, the Second Coming is closer than I thought!"

I share your sentiments. Completely.

I feel less safe today. I am also sickened by the FOCA. It should be called FOMA - Freedom to Murder Act.

I feel the same as you! I try not to think about it because it brings on major anxiety! :(

Hope you r hanging in there. the single baby is wonderful!! you should try it!
