I was just thinking | whatsandrathinks

Not sure if I should post this. But I’m going to trust that you are mature enough to be civil in the comments even if you disagree. Everyone has a right to their opinion. You have yours. I have mine.

Is there anyone who ever remembers
Changing their mind from the paint on a sign?
Is there anyone who really recalls ever breaking rank, at all
For something someone yelled real loud, one time?
Oh, everyone believes
In how they think it ought to be
Oh, everyone believes
And they’re not going easily

Arguing is pointless anyway. It is extremely rare for someone to be swayed. See above lyrics so kindly written by John Mayer.

All of that being said… I have not used today’s O word at all in this post. And I haven’t read the 300+ page report (You know the one). (Or 400+ or 700+ pages? I don’t know I’ve heard so many different numbers.) But I turned on the television this morning and saw this…

I didn’t think it was real. I thought maybe I was watching Stephen Colbert or Seth Meyers. But it was the wrong time of day. And if George Stephanopoulos is there, it must be real.


p.s.— I’m still super anxious about posting this. But then… I also can’t help myself. I’ll turn off comments if there’s a problem. Or I’ll remove the post. We’ll see…

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. I don’t want to comment on politics, but it’s your blog and you can post whatever you want!

  2. At this point in the term, I don’t want him out. Pence is FAR worse. Now, if they want to wait until he’s got a few weeks left before roasting him, I’d be fine with that. Oh, and screw them if they disagree with you. You don’t have to explain yourself or justify your opinion. Period.

    I read your post as more about the arguing that goes on among everyone with an opinion. I’m not sure there’s anything this president can do to alienate his base. Including get indicted. The next election is going to be monumental.

    The fact that you are already anticipating some cyber-blow-up to occur is telling and actually disturbing enough in and of its own… but that’s for another day, perhaps…

  6. It is not beyond the realms of possibility that Trump may be re elected. Just sayin’!

    Trump seems like the kind of guy who will spoil the ending of Avengers: Endgame in one of his tweets. That’s the worst thing I can think to say of a person.

  10. I think your poem well fits the O-word “Opposition”. And I agree. A study showed that the only thing posting volatile, divisive views on social media does is push people more strongly toward the view they already had. The only way to come together is through actual, mutual, respectful conversation. Not online engagement.

    I usually don’t wade into that pool. So, I shall smile and nod.
