So much is going on in the news, I almost don’t know where to begin! But the immigration fiasco going on has me both sad and shaking my head. What on earth was “he” thinking? People who have been vetted for at least two years, board a flight and are en route when he signs his executive orders. Only to arrive at JFK, put in handcuffs and detained. It’s becoming more and more obvious that he has no clue how to govern! Something I’ve said from the time he descended that escalator. It’s also obvious there’s no communication and a total lack of experience in that White House. Yeah, not sure about you, but I don’t find any of this very assuring.
OF course we should not allow people who have not been vetted into our country! Seems to me President Obama and his policies were on top of this. Except for 911, the incidents here were done by home-grown terrorists. And now what is going on at JFK and airports across our country is exploding. Again I say…..experience IS everything and I’m afraid we’re all going to reap the results of a complete lack of it. And he’s so delusional, he says “it’s working out very nicely.” Referring to what’s going on at the airports. Nicely? Nicely for whom?
In other news…..have any of you knitters seen the news about the owner of the yarn shop in Franklin, TN, called The Joy of Knitting? Here’s the link. https://www.good.is/articles/knitting-store-marching
Yes, it’s her yarn shop and yes, it’s her choice to ban those who marched from purchasing pink yarn at her shop and to call the women “vile and evil.” Although, due to the backlash she’s received, she might be rethinking her decision. Or not. Where I have a huge problem with this is when mixing business and politics. I feel it’s tacky and very unprofessional. Those of you who visit my personal page at Facebook know I had a similar encounter with a business woman. The owner of a local tour bus company that my Red Hat group used.
When I had my contracts with Kensington, I did book signings throughout the southeast. Some were obviously owned by “Christian” women. They make sure you know this. And trust me, I had to bite my tongue a number of times. Especially in Mississippi and Alabama. And even if you don’t know me personally, you can probably tell from my blog that I speak out and speak up. Always. EXCEPT when it was business related. And signing books was my business. Although I could have contributed a lot to the conversations by the women customers in those shops, I did not. It wasn’t the place or the time.
And speaking of the right place and right time…I have another issue in relation to this, but I’ll save it for another time.
I’m just so sad about the state of our country. But sadness doesn’t accomplish anything. So now that I’ve vented, I’ll take a deep breath and focus on the upcoming actions my organizations and groups will be taking.
See you here next time…….
