It’s a knitting blog, but I write about a whole lot more. As a matter of fact, there’s been precious little knitting recently (although I’ll be posting some cool sketches from the book I’m working on – why, here’s one right now…)
At any rate, every now and then I have to speak out about the current political situation. I’m sickened daily by the way the mass media ignores what is up with our administration, and it’s come to the place where even my Republican relatives are up to here [hand held over head] with the lies.
Slowly, slowly, I feel that our belief in ourselves as a free, open and rich society is dissolving, those who are thoughtful are quiet just when we need to be loud.
We’ve been lulled into a false sense of insecurity – by that I mean fear is used as a tactic to supress dissent. This is a time for us once again to hear and believe, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
I apologize in advance if some of you are bothered – I know you don’t come here for political content – but it’s reached the point that to not comment is a political statement in itself.
