I am not one to ever talk about politics. I hate it. In my experience, all it leads to is arguments. We all have our own opinions and some people think they can always change your mind so in my opinion, unless your having a healthy discussion or you know who your talking to can keep a level head, I won’t discuss it.
It didn’t matter where I went today. Whether it be on blogs, the Internet or on TV, all I heard about was Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol being pregnant. Does any one NOT care as much as I do? I was planning on voting for McCain in the first place. The only time I “wavered” was when I thought Hillary might sneak it out. Obama was never an option for me. I would have thought more about it and probably would have ended up voting McCain but I was being “open minded.”
My husband asked me a few weeks ago, “why don’t you write a post on all these negative ads on TV.” I really didn’t know what to write about since they are always on. They are horrible I know but it will be over soon.
But this has brought out the REAL UGLY in people. This is a young woman who has nothing to do with anything. So her mother “LET” her get pregnant. Really? So all the other teenagers who have found themselves in this situation, it was really their mothers fault? If she can’t “CONTROL” her daughter, how in the world can she be VP? Can you tell me of anyone in the history of the world that can “control” a child of any age? When your child is out of your sight, anything is liable to happen. How can any sane person say this is her mother’s “fault?” Think very carefully about this. Is there one person among us who can say they were never in a backseat making out or never done this? Maybe some of us were just lucky it didn’t happen to us but I don’t for one second believe it was a mother’s fault. Any mother. She wasn’t even there. Or did everyone here wait until their wedding night to “consummate” things?
I feel so for this young girl who is just starting her life. How can this be “fair game?” This is just wrong. If one of my boys had come to me at 17 and told me he was going to be a dad, I wouldn’t have been jumping cartwheels but I would have hugged him and said “what are “we” going to do?” What is she supposed to do? I feel this has nothing to do with politics and has everything to do with human kindness. I have lost a lot of respect for some of my fellow bloggers after today and have taken them off my blogroll. One person wrote that “she didn’t judge this girl IN ANY WAY” but then left a link to see pictures of her drinking. Nice huh? Caring and compasionate too! I guess none of us took a drink before legal age either!
To all the McCain is old crowd and he “could die”, well Obama could get hit by a bus. We all know that anything in this life “could” happen. Let’s leave this poor girl alone and unless you have a totally clean slate and live in that nice big ol glass house, ye dare not throw one stone.
Let’s be gracious to our fellow human beings and not let something that has nothing to do with politics, hurt this girl.
