As the California primary approaches, I am hell bent on NOT PROSTRATING MYSELF FOR AMERICAN GOVERNMENT.
I admit my memory for politics is bad because during my developmental years, I didn’t give a fuck about voting or politicians or environment or this or that, etcetera. In 2007, having been defeated by a crack addiction and sobering up, I began to get involved because I was incensed at the state of my city, state and country.
This lead to extreme anger, which led to improper and inappropriate outbursts which only resulted in losing “Facebook friends” and getting banned from Twitter. Oh, I guess I could add that it compounded my depression.
Anyway, I am now back to my original position that I refuse to prostrate myself before my city, state or federal government. One only has to look at the offerings for governor:
Antonio Villaraigos & Gavin Newsom
In 2007, Villaraigosa was caught in yet another extramarital affair, this time with Spanish-language television newswoman Mirthala Salinas, prompting his wife to file for divorce for the second time and last time.
In January 2007, it was revealed that Newsom had a romantic relationship in mid-2005 with Ruby Rippey-Tourk, the wife of his then campaign manager and former deputy chief of staff, Alex Tourk. Tourk filed for divorce shortly after the revelation and left Newsom’s campaign and administration. Newsom’s affair with Rippey-Tourk impacted his popularity with male voters, who viewed his indiscretions as a betrayal of a close friend and ally.
I am very firm in that if one has issues of honesty, one would be a fool to put someone with trust issues into office. How the hell can you trust what they say? Wake Up America! If your companion is cheating on you, they have are “in your face” telling you they can’t be trusted! Sleeping with your best friend’s companion or a relative’s companion is vile and the doubly low because the suspect is betraying both their spouse and friend/relative. Why would you trust these types?
Seeking re-election to the senate – I tried to figure out how many times, but I can’t figure out the math. I can tell you that she has been serving twenty six years total and that is way overdue for her to be voted out!
Her current commercial states that she is for universal healthcare, yet after 26 years, the United States of America is a third world country in comparison to other progressive and humanitarian countries that believe healthcare is a human civil right, and in my opinion, constitutional right because how many sick people are pursuing liberty or are even able?
Then there is the opioid crisis. I watch 60 Minutes: The Whistleblower, Redemption; Season 50, Episode 4. I was appalled when I saw the scene where the opioid bill passed with no hesitation or opposition for anyone in the senate of which Dianne is a part.
