My friend Gail recently took me to task about my usual blog subject — trying to eat healthier. “Nobody gives a damn if you’re on a diet, Josie. You’re smart, you’re a good writer. Why don’t you write about something important, like politics?”
Ok, Gail, this one’s for you.
My Take on Politics, by Josie Kinkade
The single most important issue in America today is repealing Citizens United. Without this we can’t elect people to represent the People. If you don’t know what this is, Google it.
Today’s Republican Party seems to be dominated by fear, hatred and greed. I can’t fathom wanting to part of such a group. Yet I know numerous kind, nice, generous (if misguided) people who do. Go figure.
It is high time we had a woman president. Hillary is perfectly capable and wants the average citizen to get a fair shake. Sure we can talk about her hair, her bitchiness, her lies, her vote to enter the Iraq War, and her pantsuits, but she’s smart, caring, and capable.
Oh, and she’s ripping good at foreign policy, despite that stupid but politically necessary vote she made as senator of — what state was that? Oh yeah, New York, where the Two Towers (sic) were taken down. Goddam it, I want a woman president before I die, and I don’t want it to be a Republican.
Unless it’s Condi.
Bernie Sanders, I think you’re terrific, and if I thought you had a chance in hell of becoming President I might almost consider forsaking my alter-ego Hillary to vote for you.
Black lives matter.
Narcotics should be legalized. All that wasted prison money should go into prevention, rehab and social justice.
We should stop subsidizing corn and soy beans to feed to animals, and start subsidizing fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and whole grains including soy and corn for human consumption.
Obamacare doesn’t even come close to what we ought to have, but it’s the best the poor bastard could do. (I love the poor bastard, by the way.)
Feral cats and TNR should be protected by federal law.
I haven’t got the slightest idea what to do with Syria. The American perhaps most qualified is — wait for it — Hillary Clinton.
