Politics and Bible Thumping Ain’t Gonna Solve No Problems!

“I’m about the furthest thing from devout, but even I have to admit that Jesus said some pretty amazing things. His main message, if I may be so bold as to summarize, was love and take care of each other.”

I’m sick and tired of politics and the bible! They don’t mix and they don’t solve a single problem.

But that’s where we are in America and it’s getting worse not better.

Everytime I try to have a conversation about “loving each other and taking care of each other, it’s the same fucking stupid response.

“Trump is a fool and racist!” “Biden is a pedophile!” “Trump hates America!” Biden hates America!” “A good democrate is a dead democrate!” Or worse yet, things I don’t care to discuss any further, especially right now.

I think we are all fools if we don’t start talking about how to talk to each other again.

Stop it right now!

Stop thinking about us and them!

Stop whining, complaining and blaming everyone and everything.

Stop being judgemental. Stop being “holier-than-thou!”

Just stop this shit and start talking to each other about solutions. Leave Trump, Biden, religion, politics and other stupid shit at the door.

And, most importantly, leave your ego at the door to conversation out in the hallway…

Just stop it!!!
