tuesday rant

I am a fiscal conservative, with a very left leaning sway towards social issues.  Most of my friends think I don’t post about political things on insta or FB because I don’t want to admit my evil Republican side. Because all Republicans are raving lunatics, right? This couldn’t be further from the truth.  In fact, I keep my social media outlets politics-free because I don’t want to read/see/complain about the horrors of this country on a place I go to for an escape.  Yes, it is an awesome platform for awareness, and I do love to look at things from all sides.  I definitely do not follow a line in the sand.  My viewpoints are made up of all kinds of sources and opinions.  Some of my closest friends feel completely opposite from me on issues – yet I value our conversations and their dialog, so that we are all getting it out there for thought.  That’s important to me.  But, I do not want to go through this exercise on my social media.

But I want to discuss how a jewelry and footwear designer, a reality show participant, that’s a WOMAN has been given a position as a government employee.  Ivanka Trump has entree to the to the most sensitive relationships in this world.  She is seemingly active in every sense of our government.  I know this isn’t the first time a family has supported the President, and nothing “bad” has happened with her inclusion so far.  I can’t decide if she is helping or hindering in the big sense of the work.  I do like that she is a well educated, smart woman that’s active in the political field, but I would hate to discount the other women that have earned their keep and fought to get to where they are now, i.e. Kamala Harris, which for the record, I disagree with many of her stands on things.

That’s all.  Felt like I needed to rant a bit today.  I will go back to dealing with high winds in Corsica.  Yep, that’s top on my work list today.  Don’t be jeally.  No really, don’t.
