insomnia has its uses….
It occurred to me while I was not sleeping that there was a serious lack of frilly girly stuff on ye olde blog site.
So, I decided to toss together some stuff. I stole borrowed the ‘Chicks with Guns’ label from Breda (librarians love it when you borrow stuff) and added a new section to the left sidebar. Then I poked around the link lists of various well linked gunnie folks (and by that I mean LawDog*) to find additional sites I’d previously neglected.
I know I’m vulnerable. I know I could very easily be a victim, and I HAVE been a victim.
My first husband was/is abusive. I know other women who have been or are abused. I know women who have been raped, and I know women who have been otherwise victimized. I recognize the danger, and I recognize that I am particularly vulnerable BECAUSE I’m a submissive.
Then I got mad. And I plan on staying good and mad. WE ALLOWED this nation to evolve in a manner where women and children can’t walk down the street safely. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH US?
I think its a crying shame that women are forced to protect themselves from criminals because our society’s values are so piss poor. I’m speechless to explain how OUR GOVERNMENT can think for a second we should be disarmed.
Can anyone out there honestly tell me that McCain and Obama were the best choices on any list? Pick your race; mayor, congress, senate….. I WOULDN’T PAY A POLITICIAN TO PICK UP DOG POOP. What the hell are we doing to this country? Our children grow up in a make believe world and their idols are reknowned for beating the system. 200 years from now when the children are learning American History (I hope) which names and faces from this group of elected/appointed officials will they revere?
I’m a part of this society and I’m forced to realize through my lack of action in the past I’ve contributed to the current situation. I have not been idle, but I can do more.
There’s a serious lack of frilly girly stuff in the world .. and its our fault. There is no excuse.
Next time you want to complain about our situation, find a mirror and take a good look at the voter you see in it.
*me adding stuff usually starts with a visit to LawDog’s as he was my primary inspiration for plunging into the blogging business in the first place.
