I'm sorry. No I'm not.

I'm sorry. Anyone who still supports Trump has to have been blind or just don't care. I do. I care about this country and the damage he and his cronies have done. I care that the election was corrupted and interfered with by an outside source, RUSSIA for God's sakes! I care that the Republicans are in a position to completely destroy social security, medicare and medicaid. I care that the representatives in Washington are not working in the best interests of our country and our people but are whores for corporate money. 

I am not ashamed to say that I used to believe Nixon was our worst president until George W. Bush took us into two endless wars that helped destabilize the Middle East and created more enemies than allies. I really thought they had scraped the bottom of the barrel when John McCain picked Sarah Palin for a VP running mate. I won't even go into my feelings about HRH Ronald Reagan. But when the ELECTORAL COLLEGE defied their purpose and chose Donald Trump for president I saw a whole new level of ignorance and it all isn't on the Donald's shoulders. 

I see it in his followers who don't care about women and children and elderly who will be affected by the changes his administration makes. I see it when his followers say nothing when people want to steal national lands and use them and leave them in ruins like our national parks and public lands. 

I am sick of what Trump is allowed to do and I am on pins-and-needles waiting on Mueller to gather enough evidence to present to the courts to prove that Donald Trump colluded with the Russians in a money laundering scheme that spans nations across the world. 

I care when a man who is too stupid to try to understand his duties as the leader of the greatest country in the world, attacks our government and our laws and denigrates judges, lawmakers, news organizations, and constitutional scholars in an attempt to break the law and benefit from his office. 

TRUMP IS A CONMAN AND I AM NOT FOOLED.

Now, do what you will but I was really hoping you were beginning to see the light and realize Trump and the Republicans don't give two shits about you or me or anybody else unless they can steal from you.

One more thing: Remember how people treated President Obama?

Let me preface this with "I have never been mistaken for a Republican" 
Okay. This is getting better and better. The other day I had an experience at the hospital with one of my FB friends when she innocently whispered to me that she thought we were the only two Trump supporters in the waiting room, I was speechless. Well, not really. (You know me, right?) I looked around the waiting room and saw a bunch of elderly people and a family of Hispanic people. Hmm ... Believe me, not many people in Georgia are Democrats. We both had a good exchange and a few laughs with a stranger in the lobby. It wasn't contentious, just lively, if you know what I mean.
Later on, my mamma reminded me that her husband had written several letters to the editor in the local rag complaining about "takers" or whatever it is conservative, tight ass, privileged, white, males complain about. I don't take the Dalton paper, so I'd forgotten. It was enlightening but I still didn't regret complaining loudly about Republicans trying to take social security and medicare and medicaid from us.
She asked me if I wanted the government to support us from the cradle to the grave and I said, "Hell, yeah. If they can afford to take us into two wars they sure as hell can afford to feed people and give them healthcare!" ((I was a little loud.))
Anyway, I stand by my stance and believe that a country as prosperous as America should be ashamed to have homeless people and allow poor people, and children and elderly people to go hungry and be denied healthcare.
I told her that if she followed me on FB she should know I'm not a Trump supporter. I came back today and checked to find out she had unfriended me. I'm sure she hasn't been on my friends list for a long time because I don't have any less friends than I've had for months. Anywho ...
After I was with Mamma and came back to the waiting room I asked her how her husband had done. She said they had to put a stint in. I told her I hope he makes a speedy recovery.
I'm not trying to shame her but I want to know why Republicans think they deserve healthcare but people who don't have lots of money don't.
Despite the fact I embarrass my Christian friends sometimes I have a big heart and I bought into all that "Jesus says" stuff and believe his greatest virtue was his giving and loving heart and his compassion for others.
I also believed that this country was great because everybody was entitled to justice and equality for all.
Maybe I'm a dreamer (flower child), but I'm not the only one. I want healthcare for everyone, even the assholes who would deny it to others.

Later I got this message:
Pam. There are no words for what you wrote on your public face book page. I was in shock that you could lower yourself for such stupidity. There are no words for you..... and by the way I never de-friended you. YOU have defriended me. I feel sorry for you and never in a million years would have believed you were that evil and downright mean. I am sorry that when security was called they did not haul you out of the hospital for the vulgar cursing you used in front of the young adults and the folks that were there and worried and concerned about their loved ones. They did not want to hear your CRAZY political views. Every one was looking at you. I am so hurt and mad that you could have wrote such a stupid story.
*****
I responded:
I did not unfriend you. Really. I am surprised you bothered to read my FB page and I am sorry you got so upset. I didn't give you a hard time and I didn't KNOW SECURITY WAS CALLED, if they ever were. I was not trying to offend anybody and I was telling the truth. You DID say that we were probably the only Trump supporters in the hospital. I did not use your name and I did not try to embarrass you. I think your husband's politics speaks volumes about your crazy political views, not mine. Get over yourself. I was trying to point out that people deserve healthcare no matter who they are or who they vote for. If you can't see that it is your business.

I was in the hospital waiting on my 88 year old mother's procedure. I've been in the hospital about a dozen times since 2013 with Daddy and Momma and Donny and my son and myself. I do understand the pressure people are under while waiting on their sick relatives to get HEALTHCARE. I was not writing a stupid story but while I'm at it I'd like to ask WHY DON'T PEOPLE BELIEVE EVERYBODY DESERVES HEALTHCARE?
*****
I'd like an answer from someone. Why don't people in America believe everybody deserves healtcare?

Was I really too mean, for God's sake . . .

I'm Crushed

I looked out the laundry room window and got a shock today. We had wind damage and I must have slept through it.

Our yellow shovel is laying on the ground underneath the tree trunk.

The top broke out of a sweet gum tree and squashed my apple tree. This is the first year we've had a lot of apples on it. 

Bummer!

Springtime in Resaca

I have two great boys, well, men who are hard workers and who love to grow things. Colt is a price estimator in the landscaping company he works for so he's taken a great interest in plants. 

Last year, Colt rid the lawn of a fungus or something that burned my eyes like pepper every time I mowed the yard. This year he has turned his attention to gardening in our favorite spot in the backyard and planting flowers for me in all my window boxes and two new clay pots flanking the front door. I love having flower boxes. It makes the house look like a cottage.

Without further ado, I give you the proof of the pudding . . . . .
