Women’s Rights

God didn’t send me here on earth this time around to judge any other person. You don’t want to have an abortion–that’s fine–that’s your choice. It’s also the right of other women to have an abortion.

In fact I wouldn’t have an abortion yet I’m not going to attack other women who choose to have an abortion. I still think abortion should be legal even though I wouldn’t have one.

I’m going to go against my vow not to write about politics in this blog.

The time has come to rise up and speak out against what goes on in our government.

Ironic that Republicans want women to give birth to disabled kids instead of getting abortions–yet they want to halt SSI “entitlements” that those very disabled fetuses would need when they reach 18.

Interesting that the 9/11 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia wasn’t one of the 7 countries Mr. Toupee prevented people from coming here from.

Here’s the truth via the Guardian report on Mr. Toupee’s travel ban. Mr. Trump has business dealings with wealthy individuals from Saudi Arabia.

The columnist who wrote the report I link to is right: Americans who do business and travel abroad are in greater danger than ever because Mr. Toupee is our president now.

The Republicans are making a mockery of the ideals that America is supposed to stand for: truth and justice–and life and liberty for all.

I don’t care if people are anti-abortion as opposed to pro-choice. I’m not going to judge anyone for their belief.

Simply, I just think that we can’t remain silent while women’s rights and human rights in America and elsewhere are being eroded.

I don’t like the isolationist fervor of the Republicans. I don’t like the war-mongering of the Republicans. I don’t like the illogical thinking that passes for the ideology of the Republicans.

Nor do I like the typical liberal ideology of Democrats. I don’t like the Democrats either.

It was prescient in my blogs that months if not years ago I wrote that the government can’t help ordinary citizens. That change will occur with each person helping each other one-on-one. I stand by this assertion.

Now I’m ready to take action to help people with mental health challenges live full and robust lives. Instead of just writing about this I’ve started a resume writing and career help business to serve peers.

We really can’t rely on the government anymore.

The Guardian columnist is right: it’s like Mr. Toupee has put a hood over the Statue of Liberty.

I’m going to write about these kinds of hot topics more in this blog.

Stay tuned.
