Joining the Coffee Party For Sure

I'm an American woman. I'm 55 years old. I love America. I love my country, my homeland -- even during those times when I've been embarrassed by it, which fortunately has been only twice in my lifetime. I'm moderate in most things, liberal in several and conservative in yet other things. I am an honorably discharged Viet Nam era veteran. I served in the US Air Force from 1974 to 1979 and was relatively average as enlistees go. I've been married for 25 years and worked in a variety of fields. And I'm still fairly average. I have served my country publicly and privately throughout my life and I believe in that service as a moral duty. And the Coffee Party speaks for me in fundamental ways the Tea Party doesn't. I want public dialog. I don't want to be shouted down and prevented from participating in my own government process. I don't shout other people down because I believe in hearing people out in a courteous manner. I don't have all the answers. The nice thing about the Coffee Party is that there's room for many voices from many different places. I want to work together for the common good. I don't want disunity.

I hope you will take a little time and check out some of their members videos on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/CoffeePartyUSA#p/u/1/QX7hhqnxnYA

Interesting statement. I'll stick around to see how it goes. I believe on speaking your mind, without making a fool of oneself, so your words make perfect sense.

Nice blog!

Thank you for visiting, Magaly. I appreciate the kind words.

When I watch a news program that includes more than one interviewee, it always descends into what I refer to as the professional wrestling of news. There's always someone whose sole purpose in participating is to dominate the conversation while adding nothing of value except cheap entertainment for ignorant viewers.

At last, another crone. I too have joined the Coffee Party (with some hesitation because I am not much of a "joiner" and I dislike being pigeonholed as something -- but so far so good). Happy to have found your blog. I am at http://hagshaunt.blogspot.com/

Blessed Be.
