Rise and Shine --- Ideas

Good Morning and welcome to Tuesday!

Sometimes while driving around I'll flip around the radio. Most of the time it's music stations, but once in a while I'll venture into the world of AM. It's a place where opinions flow (and more often than not 'hate' is the key word).
Most of the time when I hit that station, it's good for a laugh. The radio hosts bemoan the fact that their people are no longer at the head of the government. No matter what this new administration does, it's wrong.
Somebody actually said it was ironic that yesterday was 'Pearl Harbor Day' because we were under attack in this country again.
Whatever. Everybody, I guess, has their right to an opinion (no matter how off base it might be). We have been taught through the years this country gives us the right to throw our opinions out there. You have to respect that.
When it starts getting too much, I can quickly change the channel and forget the vitriol.
This morning, there were television reports about a gay marriage proposal in New Jersey. It's headed to the Governor's desk.
Once again, this is getting some loud mouth people up in arms. One person actually said it will damage their children if gay marriage becomes law in the state.
For the life of me, I don't see how that is possible.
No matter where you stand on the issue, how does it really affect you. Just because two people of the same gender want to be married, shouldn't really matter. If they want to do it, it is their God-given right.
If two people love each other and want to get married, they should be allowed. Those who protest this need to find something else to yell about.
We have also been taught through the years to treat people as we would want to be treated.
Opinions are just voices. Throw it out there and more on. If you don't like something, that doesn't mean it's wrong.
