Now's a good time to talk about my politics.
My blog tracker shows there are a number of new readers over here. Lately, I've only been blogging about my conversion and my family. So yah! There's been quite a bit religious talk around here. Groovy! However, this is not all there is over here.
For those of you reading who are new to my blog, I think it's important to say up front who I am. Just in case you haven't gone back and read any of my old posts, I need to put some things out here. Ya know? Give you a chance to make a more informed decision about sticking around. I hope you stay, but I won't be at all offended if you decide to leave.
First off, I tell the truth about Every.Single.Thing. On the surface, that may sound lovely. But it's not always. Sometimes my truth can induce fidgeting, sweating, and avoidance of eye-contact with others. My truth has also been known to make some people angry. That's my fairest warning.
One of the things I'm really good at talking about is the pink elephant of racial tension in our great country. Not the liberal-run-main-stream-media kind of racial tension blogging. I speak (write) from my heart and my personal experiences.
Second, while we're on the topic I don't like liberals. I don't hate them (unless I'm in physical pain, then I get cranky) necessarily, but I have a very low opinion about them. I don't have time to explain my dislike of liberals in this post.
Let's just say, that as a black person, I don't need anyone assuming that I need favors from the government on the taxpayers dime just because slavery of blacks was legal in America once upon a time. Liberal agendas have been pretty bad for black families. That's a fact, not just my opinion.
And I don't like liberals who feel they should bleed America's resources dry, so they can live off handouts, just because they feel entitled.
Third, don't say African-American anymore. Strike it from your vocabulary. Most blacks who live in America today have never even been to Africa. That's just a politically correct phrase that some liberal made up.
Fourth, since we're on the liberal topic, I did NOT vote for Obama. As a matter of fact, when he won, I was so devastated, I had to leave work mid-morning the day after the elections. I cried like a baby and retired to my bed for the rest of that day. You can read all about my 2012 election reaction here.
Last but not least, sometimes I'm snarky and/or sarcastic in my writing. This brings me back to my first point about telling the truth. Just because I love God and I love Jesus Christ doesn't mean I'm perfect. Sometimes I'm bratty and I need to vent.
Most of my readers have been reading my blog for a few years (I've had several blogs). So this is all old news for them. If you got to the end of the post, I'm guessing you'll probably stick around. Yay! If you got here and still want to leave, oh well. You'll miss a good party. Toodle-loo!
That's my truth and I'm sticking with it.
Yes, those are my feet. ;-)
