I’m not even religious but..


With less than 2 weeks left and Obama fully awake now, astute, comfortable and funny, so much is at stake. I scratch my head wondering who has brainwashed some of these women and men, but especially women.

The few on the other side of the aisle, in my circle are educated, independent and successful in their own right. But they’re not multi-millionaires and the few of my friends that are, understand what’s at stake.
Are these other women at sleep or in total denial? I am concerned.  Have they been drugged ? Amnesia ?
Even Mark Cuban, the billionaire, said he wouldn’t hire a CEO without a plan. It’s not just the economy, helping veterans, where Republicans didn’t think they wanted to spend a billion dollars over five years to help integrate veterans back into the work force. Wait, you mean the same veterans they sent to 2 wars costing us billions per month ? Those Republicans ?

There’s Wall St reform, college loans, equality for gay and lesbians, and how about equality for women ? There’s so much at stake. So much to lose. So Much. I have grave concern. So all I can say is when it gets down to the wire, let us pray. Really. That’s all I can think to do as a last resort. And if you’re listening, I hope to God it works.

About aboomersvoice

First and foremost, I'm a baby boomer and damn proud of it. The ones reading this post survived. Some didn't..We are the generation that crashed through barriers, broke through the norm and made our own rules. We paved the way for others to follow their bliss. One of the largest breakthroughs was probably equal rights and opportunities for women. Thank you Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan. We burned our bras, well, most of us did. We marched against politics we didn't believe in, staged protests not knowing we could easily be silenced by a bullet, experimented with drugs, meditation and guru's. We traveled with backpacks across the country and throughout the world..We had a voice. We had a choice. We had a mission. We had freedom and we were united. I am a writer, traveler, explorer, observer and participant in life. I am part of the expansion of baby boomers who still believe in the original message of peace and love. Take this journey.with me. Who knows where it will take us next ?
