(So I'm skipping some of the Every Day in May prompts. Some of them just don't appeal to me.)
Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)
There are no shortage of things in this world that get me up in arms, that's for sure. It's no secret that I am a huge bleeding heart liberal, and therefore pretty much the entire conservative agenda pisses me off. It's the blatant hypocrisy that kills me. They can tell us we can't marry someone of the same gender because of the "sanctity" of marriage, even if they've been married four times and had extramarital affairs. They can eliminate sex education, then force women to give birth to children they can't support, and then de-fund all the programs that are in place to support the children they cared so much about when they were in the womb but apparently become mooching parasites as soon as they take their first breath. They can scream and yell about taxes and hide their money in offshore accounts but are the first ones to send our military (funded by tax dollars) to war. They lament that we are falling behind other countries in academics but slash education funding at every opportunity. They say that terrorists "hate us for our freedom" and then seek to impose laws based on their own personal religious beliefs. And please don't get me started on religion. Oy vey.
