Dear Mr. Politician

  Dear Mr. Politician;

  It is my hope that you will listen to Clint.  Because, you see, while you stand upon your soap box, decrying the horrible concept of two adults who cherish each other coming together in an American Civil Right of Marriage for no other reason than both are of the same sex, you ignore the very important things.  As you line your pockets, you starve our children, our grandparents, and our neighbors.  You allow waste and pollution to run rampant while you dither the philosophies of men of 4000 years ago, ignoring what they were saying and cherry picking your tennants from the minor limbs of the tree of life. 
  Do you believe yourself to be so far above it all?  Ask Dick Cheney about his daughter.  Ask Nancy Reagan about her husband.  Ask John Edwards about his wife... if you can find him.  Don't you see? 
  If you put half your energy used keeping homosexuals from marrying and put it into feeding our kids, you wouldn't have starving kids in your district.  If you spent a quarter of the money in American Schools as you have in Iraq, Johnny would know how to read.  If you spent half your time on insider politics and spent more on the streets, bridges, and woods, you would see our land being destroyed.  And, if you cared just a bit more about your country and a bit less about your party, you wouldn't need to be told any of this. 
    -a voter!

Hello Randy
Very well said, but coming up against one very large real life hurdle, I fear - the business of most politicians, as far as I can see, is to get themselves elected/re-elected, and not to represent the essential interests of their constituents. Altruism is a commodity sadly lacking across the whole political spectrum.
Despite my cynical pessimism, I'd still like to wish you a Happy New Year. I hope 2012 is a great year for you.

Love & best wishes
Sammy B

I totally agree with everything you and Sammy said. Politicians are just too concerned about their jobs and getting re-elected that they don't bother bother to see what the people they represent want. We really need to start spending more money in our country on our people.

I hope your new year is great.

That is an interesting analogy: My employee is so concerned with keeping his job that he isn't doing it. Hmmmm.

hugs all!

Hello Randy. I have always wondered at the comment that the relationship Ron and I share has any effect on any other couples relationship. Except maybe to show that you can have a long lasting loving and very happy life sharing relationship.

I do not understand the need for some people to have to micro mange other peoples lives. I have enough to do, a big enough job, just tending to my own life. I couldn't not imagine trying to manage others lives, especially ones I don't even know.

Hugs and loves,
