I’ll have a slice. Oh, and please send a whole sheet cake over to the Senate please.
Big Beard music actually.
ZZ Top – Sharp Dressed Man – 1983
Ahh, the music of my carefree youth. Right now I need the solace ‘cause the news is crazy town. I’m counting the minutes to 01/20/2021.
The news cycle is important to keep up with. However for my mental health I must take a break for diversion, fun and some eye candy.
Broken Peach is my answer this morning.
Broken Peach – Take On Me – 2021
It was worth my time, hopefully it’s worth yours.
Inciting violence that overtakes the halls of Congress is treason. Lying about the results of an election is treason. Obstruction of justice is treason. Staging a coup to remain in office as an authoritarian is treason.
Period. Period. Period. Period.
I don’t care how few days are left, Impeach and remove the motherfucker from office immediately.
You, my dear reader, can reach your representative HERE
…and your Senator HERE
It doesn’t matter what your political party nor your Senator’s or Representative’s political party is, what happened today is not only wrong but unconstitutional and it is our duty as citizens to speak out and demand justice.
Otherwise your democratic government of the USA is over, it’s toast.
The results today in Georgia give me hope. Now it’s our turn to give the residents of Georgia hope.
Hope can be a complicated word for me. When one looks up the definition of hope the answers lean toward wish, or wishful thinking, however to me hope means more. Please don’t get me wrong as there is nothing wrong with wishful, but to me hope runs deeper.
Given that I am not a scholar, nor English major, I often look to the dictionary to help me refine the meanings of a word that I want or need for my expression. The typical definitions just don’t pinpoint the feeling I have behind the word hope.
To me hope is a very deep feeling, trust, desire and expectation for good. By this I mean good things that bring value. Values such as trust, honesty, equality, justice, kindness, service, humility, empathy, understanding and even love. Hope is something I feel from my being, my heart.
This morning I turned on this here iPad thingy to find news of hope coming from the election results in Georgia. Hope that restores my faith in us as a society. May this hope live and grow.
As I’ve stated, my goal on this here little blog thingy is mainly self growth. Since the start this has been a place for beards to contemplate and grow their souls. Please note this intention is for everyone, not just beards. We do our best to stay on the positive path and therefore while politics occasionally creep in, we try to avoid the stress politics can inject as much as possible. However there are occasions that simply cannot be overlooked with good conscience.
So when it comes to the state of U.S. politics the past few days, I’ll simply post this fabulous little gif just to release a little stress. With this little stress relief I may now move forward without having to say anything else at the moment. If it helps anyone else my efforts will be doubled!
