Hey-o. I had a minute this morning where I felt all bad again about being righteously indignant and then Facebook suggested I “friend” the wife of an ex-boyfriend and, as I looked at the woman, it all came flooding back to me. The wretched little drama that played out publicly in a small town with people taking sides like some pathetic, redneck version of the Aniston-Jolie thing. I’m pretty sure I was the Aniston, although I’ve since become a lot more Jolie. Anyway, I was reminded how much I cried and how awful it was to see them get married, even though I’m pretty sure I didn’t want to marry him. He fell too easily for this woman and her schtick, and there was something about that that really bothered me. I mean I get that people are trying to find their thing in life, and that they break vows sometimes and are imperfect. I have a friend who went through something similar and she owned her part in it. She blamed herself and really had to work out what she had done. And I respect that. But this chick — I heard her say once that Yoko Ono was the love of John Lennon’s life. I mean come on. Read up on that relationship and you’ll know why that’s just a hokey thing to say, and I’m pretty sure she was saying it to justify her own infidelity etc. And I just wasn’t righteous enough back then not to get trampled on and I have some regrets about that. So yeah, I think I’m going to stay strong going forward. Besides, sometimes it’s just good to call it like it is. Like this guy.
I need to get moving as I have a softball game in a few hours but on the subject of Israel — it’s pretty simple y’all. Hamas threw some bombs and Israel answered. Anything else you may read about occupying forces etc is not only inaccurate but bait for suckers. Think of it this way — if a Palestinian were to move into your neighborhood and was a peaceful, law-abiding citizen who was just trying to give his kids a better life and some crazy Christian fundamentalists threw a Molotov cocktail through his window, would it bother you if he came outside and cracked a few skulls on the hoodlums? Think about it and get back to me.
Beyond that, this is great. Have a good weekend and stay righteous.
