I have been taking a break from blogging. I didn't really plan to, it just happened. I have been blogging for over 2 years and have to admit I am in a complete funk. Call it writers block, a brain fart, a non-verbal protest against tiredness, whatever you want to call it, call it, it's fine with me. I stopped to take a breath and to soak up a little bit of my current surroundings and my objection to it, so your honor, I object. I hope it is duly noted judge and jury so I can move onward and upward. That probably only made sense to me and that's okay just skip it.
Politics is my passion. I love it. I could discuss it all day and write about it everyday, but lately I needed to step back and focus on some other things, so pardon the absence. Not that anyone cares, but I did want to acknowledge that I did vacate the premises for a while and still may continue to disappear.
As I was saying repeatedly, I love politics. I always have. Not everyone does and political blogging is different than other blogging. Political readers are almost always political junkies and are always needing a fix. They are opinionated, informed people who want to know what is up in the political world and must discuss sometimes ad nauseum the latest topic among like-mided or opposite minded politicos. If these junkies don't get their daily hit, they'll find another political crack dealer and move on. It's cool, sometimes you just gotta say WTF and sit on your ass for a while. It's all OH SO good. My blog has always been and will always be a place for me to blow off steam and say exactly what I am thinking. A lot of my steam is conveyed sarcastically and irreverently and yes, that is how I think, sarcastically and irreverently. Even in church I have a few non-verbal sarcastic eye-rolls going on in my irreverent, sarcastic head. I am a self-proclaimed jacked-up Mormon or what some in my culture refer to as a "jack Mormon". I'm solid with it, I resemble both titles. Either way I believe God accepts my heartfelt desire for honesty above a cultures desire to portray a candy-coated looking reality. I choose to see things as they truly are and not as I wish them to be and sometimes bitches, the glass is totally and completely half empty. It's a flawed reality I know, but so goes the life of a realist and like life, so goes the rant of a political realist. Life is positive and negative regardless of our attitude, define it accurately is all I ask. And then pick your flowers and make your garden grow with beauty, but don't tell me shit doesn't stink when it obviously does. You won't find me sitting around acting all perfect and anal retentive. I don't have time for make-believe. I live life on a street, in house and in a neighborhood, not on a stage with pretty props. Life is messy for all of God's children and I am here to report that it is no different for me, but he is here to sustain you and me, this I know and this is not just my reality, this is a universal truth.
Honesty is always the best policy and perhaps reality is fogged by a damaged psyche or a petrified and tormented soul, but in the end the truth is all we have, so why fake it? I'll give it to you straight and at first it will go down like hard bitter liquor, but soon the taste is acquired and it's as smooth as whiskey. Stay tuned folks...I'll be back. Until then, keep blogging and stay true to reality and not the cheap hooker impostor version called, Obama. I AM OUT! MWAH!
