Open mouth, insert foot. When someone makes a comment that gets under my skin, I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut. I was reading blogs, just hitting "next blog" at the top of the page, and one was bad mouthing the US for only sending 35 mil for the tsunami victims. I read that it was either 135 mil or 350 mil, and only second to one other country. I put a comment to them to check the facts before they bad mouth. Geeeeeeeesh. Now, someone I don't even know is going to get pissed. Probably. Why should I care? I do. I feel like I am just a wishy washy wimp most of the time, but you don't mess with my kid, or things I feel strongly about. I think if you are going to criticize something, you need to check facts before you do it. Do I? Not usually. Its "do as I say, not as I do." Now I don't even know what blog it was. :(
I am just tired of everyone talking about Americans like we are trash. I voted for Bush. Not because I approve of everything he has done, but Kerry scares the crap out of me. I don't trust him either. I think with those 2 to choose from, I had to make the choice I did. I am not a political minded person. But enough is enough. Most of the Americans I know are hard working class, getting by the best they can. When someone steps in and talks about "those lousy Americans" it gets under my skin. There are all types of people that live here, not all are lousy. Not even most. The lousy ones are the ones you get to see in the news. Most of us are good people. (except when we get crappy on somone else's blog. :(
I apologize to that person, whoever it was. After reading blogs slamming us, I got fed up. It wasn't horribly awful what I said, it just wasn't necesary. Even if it was necesary, I didn't need to put it that way. And what if I am wrong?????? I'm going to bed. Its been too long of a day.
