Miss Ginger is feeling rather independant!

And that's independant, not patriotic! I'm not feeling totally aligned to a country where a black man can be elected President, but 2 gay men cannot marry each other. I'm not feeling totally aligned to a state where a straight couple can do whatever they want in their bedroom, but if a gay couple performs their most intimate act, they are breaking the law. I'm concerned for my friends in Fort Worth, whose freedoms have been radically challenged by an overzealous police force who created a dangerous environment where none previously existed.

Our economy is in the toilet. We are stuggling to control our borders. We're fighting a war in which we have no vested interest. And a crazy Korean has a nuclear weapon aimed right at us!

Our "friends" in Europe mock us. The middle east hates us. And the far east takes advantage of our greed. We are fucking up the planet, fucking up the oceans, and fucking up outer space.

SO, tonight I'm going to paint my face, put on sunglasses and a hat, and drive to Tony's Corner Pocket to finish getting dressed, because there will be cops and bad traffic all over the place, and I could get hauled in for driving in drag. We'll do a show that will hopefully raise a few fists full of dollars to support a community health service that is badly in need of funding, and then we will go outside and watch a multi-million dollar fireworks spectacular paid for by Shell Oil. (Think about that the next time you pay for a tank of gas!)

America's priorities are fucked up, people! So much for our government "of the people, for the people...!"

Happy Independance Day, GingerSnaps! How independant do you get to be today?

Miss Ginger, I feel your frustration. However, there's no denying that this is still THE greatest nation on Earth. Check out Behr Blather for my take on it all.

Happy Fourth and Behr Hugs!

Excellent post, Miss G! Brazilliant! But sad, there is much work to do.

Carlos and I are celebrating quietly at home--it's a big drunken madhouse in the red states, these holidaze.
Tomorrow, we'lll have our friends Neal and David over for a quiet evening of grilling and wine and maragritas.

Happy fourth!

Stay safe.

What a sad statement that you will finished getting dressed at Tony's, because you are leery of driving in drag. :(

Try to stay your optimistic self and know that although it's not happening fast, change IS coming. XOXO Beth

Miss Ginger, you really need to move to California! I hope your holiday is a good one! :) Julie

Miss Ginger, when you get political, you do it up right! That's a call to action for sure! It made me angry and sad at the same time.

Hugs and hugs and hugs!!!!

Hopefully things will get better

Beth said...

as a straight White woman in America, I get to be pretty independant. Hopefully, all of my friends will get this same right soon.

Happy 4 Miss Ginger! I know you put on one helluva show!!!
