Today I am NOT happy; in fact, I am PISSED OFF and ANGRY!
I talked about it with my beloved SBF today – I feel like a child that has been lied to OVER and OVER and OVER again. Specifically, I am talking about the “comprehensive” immigration outline that was released that made NO MENTION WHATSOEVER about an avenue for gay and lesbian American citizens to sponsor their foreign-born permanent partners for immigration. None. Nada.
How many times can a group of American citizens get thrown under the bus before someone FINALLY says, “THIS SITUATION HAS TO STOP/CHANGE?”
(Out4Immigration is a not-for-profit group that lobbies tirelessly for gay and lesbian inclusive immigration reform – they are rock stars!)
Viewed through a “larger lens,” quite honestly I am tired of politicians lying and kissing ass to get elected then forgetting everything they promised. I am tired of living in a country that professes to be the greatest country on the planet yet we still are jerking around with the question of marriage equality. Huh? WTF?
Hey, remember this promise, Dems/Mr. President? I mean, I know you made it almost seven months ago…
Those LGBT issues aside, I guess what I am REALLY tired of is the inhumanity and lack of compassion mankind displays almost daily, as well as the general apathy and lethargy consuming our society. It SUCKS and I am frankly tired of trying to change it.
I totally acknowledge that by giving up the fight I am allowing the “bad guys” to win but, today? I think I will indulge myself in a long-overdue pity party and (hopefully) tomorrow I will be re-energized and re-inspired.
