My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

It’s Time to Stand Up and Protest

Blog Prompt: Today is Disobedience Day. If you could protest about something, what would it be?

I would protest about our Governor Sanford’s behavior. He has made South Carolina a laughingstock of the nation and continues to embarrass us daily. First he disappears for four days with his staff telling everyone that he went hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Then we find out this married father of four children has actually gone to Argentina to be with his girlfriend. A few days later he talks about his girlfriend and how she is actually his soul mate and this is truly a love story (not a lust story) but he will try to fall back in love with his wife. By saying this, he is talking out of both sides of his mouth. He is like a snake in the grass and we need to see him for what he really is. He also agrees to pay back thousands of dollars of public funds that he used to go meet with his mistress. Now the State Law Enforcement Division says they investigated the situation and they conclude that the governor did nothing wrong and did not misuse public funds. Ummm…they must think we are pretty stupid. Or maybe we are if we don’t continue to pressure the governor into resigning. Everyone (including his wife whom he is now separated from) keeps talking about forgiveness. Okay, let’s forgive him, but geez, let’s get him out of office!

I am at the point where I don't want to watch the news or read the paper because I don't want to hear his "latest" confession. Why does he feel the need to air more and more dirty laundry? Personally I don't care if he had an affair. That is between him and his wife. I do care that he used our money to fund it. Paying the money back isn't enough for me. And I care that he isallowed to go to work everyday. If anyone else in the US took 4 days off without telling anyone, they'd be out of a job. What makes Sanford so special? ARGH!!

OH Pat. I didn't realize he was your governor. I didn't put 2 and 2 together. That whole scandal is rather sickening and I can't believe he hasn't resigned.

And I agree with Steph. Everyone else would've lost their job for sure.

I think Tammy and Steph have said it all. And I think his staff should get the boot too, for covering up for him.
