Moving Forward



I'm glad the election is over so we can all move forward. And I'm glad Barak Obama won. I wasn't necessarily an "early adopter", but I knew Bush and his cronies needed to go, I was afraid McCain would die in office, and I was certain the US could not survive another Republican presidency. If there ever were any doubt in my mind, McCain's selection of the lip-sticked-pig airhead from Alaska made my vote solid. So it's done! Yea!

Everyone who reads my blog knows I'm not a hater- but one thing I do hate is bitterness! All it takes to shut my ears is for someone to start ranting bitterly, and I'll take my "get over it, Mary!" stance and tune them out. So I'm thrilled that the world's bitter queens (there seem to be so many these days!) don't have Bush to blame things on any more! It's time for them to be happy! As Daddy Ginger would say: "s&%t or get off the pot!" Our man won! Our voice was heard! And people rallied behind our causes! If you're ever gonna be happy, now's the time to do it!

And you're not allowed to be bitter about the gay marriage ban unless you live in one of those states where it passed. Angry? Yes. Dissapointed? Sure. Hurt? Maybe. All of those are emotions, and they ebb and flow, and will heal over time. But bitter is not an emotion- it's a state of mind. It's an unwillingness to participate, and often a conduit for blame. In the words of Miss Ginger- "Get over it, Mary!" Don't be bitter, be convicted! Be convicted to do something different than what you did last year to bring the issue forward. But don't be bitter. Miss Ginger don't do bitter!

A lot in this election was made of the economy. President Obama's choice for Secretary of the Treasury will be of utmost importance! Anyone have a crystal ball to predict who he will tap?

Here is hoping that we start to heal. It is unfortunate that the Prop 8 was successful in CA, we have friends/spotters there that could be impacted.

We voted for Obama, and have no qualms at all about it.

Hope all is well in GingerLand :o)

Bitter is so unattractive, isn't it?

I wouldn't mind seeing Warren Buffet as Sec. of the Treasury.

Hugs, Beth

I am angry. I hate what that ridiculous proposition has already accomplished. But you are right. Anger solves nothing. Time to wade into the fray and see what we can do to get this overturned!
