Giving a chance

"Well E we have our new president." He jumps up and yells, "Did McCain win?" "Noo MR. Obama won" I shit you not he jumps to the floor like he is having a seizure and says "OH MY GAAAWWWWDD. OBAMA IS SO BAD HE WONT LET US PPRRRAAAAAYY AND HE KILLS BAAABBBIIIEEESS IN THE MOMMY'S TUMMY!"


Ummmm What?

"Where is the world did you hear that E?"

He gets this strange look in his eyes like he thinks he is in trouble. "I don't remember."

"Its ok I won't be mad I just need to know ok?

"Me and Daddy were listening to the radio and this man said it." "Daddy says that he is a very bad man."

I am going to kill that ex husband of mine one of these days. When I do I will post every detail on the Internet. Smiling. From my jail cell.

Needless to say we had a very long talk before school this morning and cleared a few things up. I can not believe that my child is subjected to that shit. Well. I do believe it but I wish it were not true.

My child is not allowed to watch anything that is not PG rated at his father's but for some reason it is ok to terrify him of our President???

No matter what is floating around about our future President. No matter what anyone believes about him. It is now a time to support the person that has promised change and has a vision for our country. Lift him up as he is about to face the most difficult 4-8 years of his life. So you didn't vote for him. So what.

Over half of the United States did so get over it. Stop with the dumb jokes while you are at it stop focusing on his color (in a good or bad way). The color of skin is not what is going to make or break him. Lack of support could though and for the good of ours and our children's future..Lend your Support.

I am not going to say who I voted for but I am going to say that this afternoon my 24year old cousin got on a plane headed to Iraq. The thought of him being over there in the middle of this useless war is torture on my family. The day he comes home safe to his wife and two children will be a treasured day. I have a feeling that it will come a lot sooner because of the candidate that was chosen. That to me is more than enough to stand behind my future president.

That is certainly some interesting things to tell a child. I will visit you in prison. :) I'll slip a file in to you in a cake.

Io said...

What the hell? Who tells a little kid crap like that? I'll totally bring you a file too. Jen and I will break you out.

I'm with Jen and Io..I'll TOTALLY break you out ;o) I agree with you on the color of his skin. It's frustrating that it's such an issue. I SO wish it wasn't! Enjoy your day!
Hugs,

What an asshole. Nat says crap like that to Ben (not about Obama) about other things. It infuriates me.

Morgan said...

Ugh! Sorry he filled your sons head with the bologna! As far as what you said about the other, all I can say is "THANK YOU, amen sister"

I wish I did. I don't doubt the president-elect's sincerity, but I do doubt that we can get out of that horrible war so easily. :( I don't want to see more of my friend's husbands or M. return to Iraq.
