No matter where you stand politically, whether you are a Republican, Democrat, Independent or just sick of the political system as a whole, you can’t deny that last night’s presidential nomination of Hillary Clinton was monumental.
I hate hearing all these women (and men) bash Hillary Clinton while ignoring the huge fact she has done something amazing for women and girls in our nation. You may think she is a liar, dishonest or stupid for staying with her husband for cheating on her many years ago, but you can’t take away the fact that she has done something that no other woman in America has ever done. She is the first woman nominee for President of the United States of America.
Are all the people who hate her forgetting that she has broken this glass ceiling we hear so much about? I have to be honest, that glass ceiling thing was never of much interest to me, until last night. When I saw that graphic on television of the glass cracking, I felt proud. I’m no feminist, but that was a moment that all women and girls, no matter what your party affiliation or political stance is, should feel empowered, proud, and strong.
So while Donald Trump goes on to makes some silly speech today and people continue to bash Hillary all over Facebook, take a moment, whether you’re a man or a woman, and realize that Hillary Clinton just made it possible for your wives, daughters, granddaughters, nieces and friends to literally rule the fucking world!

Have you heard about the protests and boycotts coming to an airport near you this holiday season? I’m thrilled as I get ready to hop on a plane this weekend.
I’m baffled that so many people are as angry as they are about these new full-body scanners being installed at airports all across the country. They’re complaining that the government is interfering with their flying and that the scans are an invasion of their privacy. Some are even claiming it’s sexual molestation. Are they flippin’ serious?
First, do any of these passengers really think TSA personnel want to look at or touch their “junk,” like John Tyner thought? (Tyner is the passenger who argued with agents while going through security and video taped his encounter, which is now a YouTube sensation.) Personally, I don’t think any man or woman behind that screen wants to see or touch any part of us, let alone our junk. He/she probably just wants to do their job and get the hell out of there. Has anyone ever seen these agents? They certainly don’t look like they want to be there. Do you really think they want to see your cellulite ridden ass or that gross mole with the hair growing out of it on your back? Having to look at your body is likely not what makes their day rosy and bright.
And the cries about government involvement. Please! This country doesn’t know what it wants. For months, Americans have complained that the government interferes in everything they do, but when it doesn’t get involved or step up, everyone’s like, “Where’s the government?” When we need our skies or airports protected, unemployment benefits extended or health care instilled, we run to our government. Yet, when we don’t like what they’re doing, we blame they for everything. It’s like being a teenager who hates your parents, yet you still live under their roof, eat their food and ask them drive you everywhere.
Why would anyone protest security measures being taken at airports? Haven’t terrorists taken enough lives while in our skies already? They continue to try and will go on trying. All the government wants you to do is stand in a scanner or have someone pat you down to protect you and those you love from a harmful attack? Why fight that?
If you have to go through extra steps to ensure the safety of yourself and those you care about, do it. Stop being ignorant, jump off your soap box and don’t make it harder for those of us that don’t oppose making our skies safer by any means necessary.
