When I was in Georgia in August I sat on my sister's deck and watched humming birds feeding and then sitting on the edge to taste the sweet juice as it ran down their throats.
Today I am hanging onto the edge, feeling pretty much like this bird looks, but its not sweet juices I am tasting. It is stinging bitter juice that's burning my throat.
I am out of my comfort zone.
Whenever I get ready to speak my mind I have to take deep breaths before I say what I think. I have been taking deep breaths all day. Or longer, but I don't remember when I first read about the letter the rogue Senators sent to the Iranian leadership,
Now there is a lot more written and I am breathing even harder - are you?
Do you have questions like I do - such as -
Who are those guys in the Senate that did this thing?
What are they thinking? Are they capable of thinking?
They have been elected to the most respected leadership body in our land and they don't know how to conduct themselves?
They embarrass all of us in this country when they act so ignorant that they forget the good manners their mothers might have taught them - follow the rules and traditions of the Senate if you were elected to serve there.
Didn't that new guy from Arkansas get the hand-out with the rules when he checked in less than three months ago? Didn't any of the old-timers that signed the letter know better?
I tell you something. I am a southern woman - an elder southern woman - and I am embarrassed when I read that this new southern boy has been so dumb that he has messed with the President, the Senate where the home town guys sent him to serve, and all of us in this country. And the old-timers stood with him and let him do it.
Arkansas aren't you ashamed of this one of your good ole boys? Is there anyway you can get him to come home before he shows off any more than he has.
Bottom line for me - - I am more than embarrassed - I am scared!
I am going to clean out a safe place in my basement - a place to hide.
