I am trying to be calm and rational. I am trying not to overreact, yet am. I just got some news that shook me to the core.
My Niece is....... I can't say it!.........is......oh the humanity!..........in love with a R E P U B L I C AN!
My brilliant left wing beautiful niece that I adore is now telling me I need to be open minded to her Republican boyfriend. I wonder if she had the same converation about me to him. The difference being I didn't choose to be gay or part of any organization that not only is destroying the US, but causing death and turmoil all over the world. An organization whose very platform says Emilio and I should never be considered a family with the ability to enjoy all the rights and privileges they enjoy.
To put the icing on the cake this kid joined the military and is going to Iraq. It just breaks my heart how stupid that political party makes people, to the point they are still signing up for the insane war on Iraq as an act of misguided patriotism. I am sending her a copy of "The Deserter's Tale" by Joshua Key.
