Fundamentalism, Intellectual Voting, and the Job Search

4 Feb

A friend on Facebook shared this link with me: http://www.goddiscussion.com/106957/christian-fundamentalists-are-driving-our-country-into-the-dark-ages/.

It is a well thought out thesis on some of the issues fundamentalism should bring to the mind of any person casting a vote.

People, please, before you cast that vote, research and think carefully about the candidate’s agenda. Is he/she really representative of your convictions? Do they have an ulterior motive? Are they playing to your emotions and not your reason? If so, why? Let me encourage all who cast a ballot to do so intellectually, not emotionally.

Arkansas has a state representative, and apparently an entire legislature, that is frantically trying to take us all back to the fifties. Women’s rights are being assaulted. It even made the Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC.  Beam me up Scottie. Where is the rational, reasonable pol?  Isn’t there some way to get these lunatics OUT!

So I wrote a note to the Governor and asked him to intervene in some way. The least he can do is publicly denounce this travesty.

Nuff said. At least for now.

Zach is no longer delivering pizza. Now we have to find him a job.

We have to find one for me too.

I’m finding it difficult …I just can’t seem to work up the…whatever it takes…to enthusiastically seek an 8-5 job. Perhaps it is the commitment I’ve made to seeing Zach, with all his idiosyncrasies,

through college… Perhaps it’s the bad ending to the last job of 13 years…or the fear of commitment…

Perhaps it is the sheer dread of routine.

Routine…the intellectual/emotional killer. Set me up on a routine and the brain begins to shut down. Days consist of the sameness…. Get through the eight hours, read, and sleep.

It’s a Zombie Apocalypse…of one. Me!

The arms slowly rise, the head tilts, the eyes glaze and bold shadows appear beneath, the gait shuffles, the clothes shred, and Kathy-Zomb is born of the rut and daily commute.

There is no hope. Kathy-Zomb is a grumpy, snappy, bitchy, shell of a woman. Sense of humor? Zilch. Loving meals prepared? Hahahahahaha! Projects completed? Uh, not so many.

Routine…the killer of creativity?

<big sigh>

When is the next lottery drawing?

    Ah the lottery; known as the poor-tax. I have little of the luck of the Irish and much of the penny-pinching Scot aboot me. But if anyone should hit it big, you all should.

Oh please, oh please, oh please share your thoughts!
