Sheep & Change – One-Liner Wednesday

Change for the sake of change isn’t necessarily a good thing. 

My mother-in-law, who is 76, and her boyfriend are Trump supporters. When we talk about it, and I ask her why on earth she would even consider voting for him, she always says because this country has a lot of problems and change is needed, and that Hillary would be four more years like the last eight. In her opinion, nothing would change.

I’ve been unemployed for three years, and something needs to change soon – but that doesn’t mean I should kill myself, become a prostitute, or start ripping people off to elicit change. Change often needs to be thoughtful. This isn’t like taking a different route home from the grocery store.

I’ve got so much to say about change and the last eight years and other things, but for today . . . in the spirit of One-Liner Wednesday, I will keep it brief. Thanks Linda – lately I haven’t written much for various reasons, but I always think about this prompt you provide 🙂

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that our president gave an amazingly energizing, genuine, insightful, hopeful, and positive speech tonight. Unfortunately, those who needed to hear it the most probably weren’t listening.

OH – and Trump’s treasonous comment made at the news conference in Doral, Fla. More to come on that – I’d love to find a video that actually showed the faces in the audience as he made those comments. A picture of his kids slapping their foreheads at that moment that crap tumbled out of his mouth would be priceless! 🙂

More soon . . .

Just something I was thinking about . . .

  1. You should tell your MiL that under Obama things have changed. The economy has become at least a bit more stable, employment numbers show some improvement, and our relationships with the rest of the world are much better.

    Ironic that the President has gotten more respect from the rest of the world than from large parts of his own country. He’s not perfect by any stretch, but compared to just about every other politician, he’s pretty awesome. So is Michelle.

    1. Hard to reach people in the bubble, WS – My husband and I both have tried to educate her. She’ll say, “Oh I hadn’t heard that or I didn’t know that,” then she goes right back to change & Benghazi & the emails. We keep telling her to quit “listening” & start becoming truly informed. We’ll see – we’re working on her gently 😁

  2. Hi Sadie – been thinking about you on and off all month my friend –
    and whew- like your points about change – and can’t really go there on the choices – even tho it is hard to believe that those are our choices….
    but at the end of the day – I put my trust in God and know that somehow He has it all covered….

    anyhow, sending you a blog hello and hoping that your month is going well….
    xoxo
