WHAT CREATED US
IN THE 60'S WE LOST OUR INNOCENCE.
"Us" by Paul Genova

This response has been technically difficult. I do hope you'll excuse some of the typos(?)
I haven't said too much about this election since the start....but this is how I feel....
& I'm noticing that some folks aren't graciously accepting the fact that their candidate lost.
** It has been accepted that the Democratic loss was due to the candidate not having a policy stand.
& In fact you seem to be posting even more hateful things about those of us who voted for Trump.
** We are not posting things about Trump followers. Trump raised the degree of bias and allowed those so biased to follow through with actions – “because the president does.” It’s so much easier to blame your problems on a minority (any minority) than to search for a solution.
& Some of you are apparently "triggered" because you are posting how "sick" you feel about the results.
** We are “sick” about the result. Please note how your candidate is doing in the Oval Office thus far. He hasn’t succeeded in ANY of his promises. He IS NOT living up to his promises to his followers. When he fails, he is always blaming anyone besides himself. Can’t you see that he is blaming Democrats for now going along with his attempted takedown of the ACA. Did he not realize that Democrats would fight him? Many Republicans also voted against repeal without replacement.
& How did this happen you ask? Well here is how it happened!
& You created "us" when you attacked our freedom of speech.
** Who is attempting to do away with freedom of speech by attacking all news outlets except FOX?
& You created "us" when you attacked our right to bear arms.
** We are not against bearing arms but the Constitution does include the phrase “for an organized militia.” It does not OK everyone owning an arsenal.
& You created "us" when you attacked our Christian beliefs.
** Beg to differ but there are many Democratic Christians. The Democrats and Independents certainly believe in “separation of church and state” and definitely do believe that religions should not be a force in politics. The Evangelicals are constantly attempting to include their religious beliefs and enforce them on the rest of the populace.
& You created "us" when you constantly referred to us as racists.
** Racist is a hard label to accept. It takes some honest introspection.
& You created "us" when you constantly called us xenophobic.
** See above.
& You created "us" when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.
** The Republicans have been in the way of any progress this country needs to make (note: climate change.) The rest of the world believes it. Their insistence of it being a hoax (and note: Trump believes that climate change was created by China – that is until he had chocolate cake with the Chinese president.. Can you name anything at all that the Republicans have done for the good of this country? Name one!
& You created "us" when you attacked our flag.
** Please note that in the 60s or 70s flag burning was decided as an expression of “freedom of speech” by the Supreme Court.
& You created "us" when you took God out of our schools.
** God and religious teachings belong in homes or religious institutions. Schools should be interested only in knowledge of this nation and loyalty to it and how it’s run. There should be taught the contents of our Constitution. By the way, which god, aside from the Christian god, would you find allowable in our schools. I believe that ALL religions should be taught in schools; at least the five great religions of the world in a course designed for that purpose.
& You created "us" when you confused women's rights with feminism.
** It is sad that human rights must entail women’s rights. Most women (and feminists) are only asking to be treated like “a person.” On health issues, who would know more about what is good for the woman? Men, who have messed up the world so far are afraid, as they always have been, of women with brains. It’s been proven scientifically that the female brain is much better at multitasking than the males. The problem lies with the manner in which males are raised; why can’t they cry; why must they conceal their emotions. The only one they are able to show are those connected with mating. It has also been proven scientifically and sociologically that, when times are tough, men fight whereas women join together to look for solutions that would improve the situation and bring about peace.
Throughout history it has been proven that societies led by women remain helpful to each other and gain their strength through understanding.
In addition, having gone through childbirth, women are less prone toward destroying their own creations. They really don’t have anything to “prove.” Who created the idea of “carrying on” a surname? Certainly not women!
Years ago I read a book, “Circle of Stones.” Can’t recall the author’s name at the moment but it is a professor of anthropology in a California university. It made quite an impression and produced greater understanding for me. There is one instance when a mother of two (one still nursing) come upon a male and, having been told that males are known to kill children and (like some cats) kill the young. The woman sends the older child to run away and, in order to calm the male, simply bends over. I’m sure you will laugh at this but, think – has the male population changed very much?
The reason there is so much difficulty in accepting those of the opposite gender simply as “a person” is that it is accepted that in order to be considered strong, a female must adopt male attitudes. I do recall an era where it was impossible to purchase a suit with a skirt.
& You created "us" when you began to emasculate men.
** The word “emasculate” was created by men. As males do have control over the other mammals on this earth, they still need those of the opposite gender to also be subservient.
I’m sorry, dear, but this is a societal problem.
& You created "us" when you decided to make our children soft.
** I think your definition of the word “soft” is a misinterpretation. In societies like ours, females are raised brainwashed into believing that males are the stronger gender. I concede that but this protection from physically strong man is no longer necessary. During the period, beginning with the Neanderthal and up to the beginning of the 20th century when the family was firm, this was necessary. It no longer is since the family is not threatened physically by someone from another tribe. If you consider a man who does laundry and helps with the family feeding and housework while his spouse must enter the financial world is soft, you’re living in the wrong era. But then, as I stated before, you’ve been brainwashed. In addition, you Righties are still stuck in the wrong generation and are always trying to “get back” to the old ways. Civilization must progress or it dies.
& You created "us" when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.
** Please read my last paragraph.
& You created "us" when you attacked our way of life.
** Please re-read my last paragraph.
& You created "us" when you decided to let our government get out of control.
** This government has been out of control for the last 30 – 40 years.
& You created "us" the silent majority.
** I see how silent you really are.
& You created "us" when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.
** Perhaps you never counted the unarmed black people who were killed by your very honest cops.
& You created "us" when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.
** Of course you don’t want to recall the context and conditions those words come from. President Obama was initially attempting to put through the precursor to single pay. He had to sacrifice much just to get the ACA passed at all. Look at what is happening in Congress now.
& You created "us" when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.
** I have been under the impression that the majority of corporations are owned and run by Conservatives. It seems that those corporations – including the insurance companies – had a great part in demanding some considerations. At least he got them to the point of accepting pre-existing illnesses. It is the insurance companies who made the decisions regarding which doctors they supported.
& You created "us" when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn't remove your hat during our National Anthem.
** Have all, or only a few Democrats decided to display their disappointment with the manner in which our country has been run over the past 30 – 40 years. That’s called passive resistance.
& You created "us" when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.
** President Obama presented the “beginning steps” toward single payer insurance for all. Sadly, in order to get this bill passed, he had to compromise. If you’ve done your homework, the insurance companies had a very large part in including their demands.
& And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.
And we did it with ballots, not bullets.
With ballots, not riots.
With ballots, not looting.
With ballots, not blocking traffic.
With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of "us".
"YOU" created "US".** AND like your leader, you’re whining.
