Avery's First Tea Party...

...and I don't mean the kind with little girls eating cookies and sipping tea in fancy glasses...

I mean the kind with outraged citizens who think it is time to stand up and demand answers! 


I am one of those outraged citizens. 

As I've mentioned before, I try my very best to keep this blog about Avery. I love politics and if I had time I would make my own blog and only blog about politics, but let's face it...I don't! So, when the two worlds collide and Avery is involved with politics...It's the perfect storm :)

I can't understand a government that wants to make everyone equal. I can't understand citizens who feel like someone owes them something. I can't understand why we spend Trillions (yes, that is TRILLIONS with a T) of dollars on government programs and pure waste. (Click the link to view just a few absurd examples). I want to understand. But there is no explanation, so now I'm angry. Angry about this so-called 'change'. I hate change, have I mentioned that? And do you know what I really hate? Change that says the government can take as much money as they want from whoever they want, whenever they want and give it to anyone they want. I certainly am not saying I completely agreed with the Bush Administration, or that I didn't want anything to change, but I certainly am outraged at what is taking place...and do you know why? Because our generation won't pay back all of his 10 trillion dollars in spending bills...but hers will... 


I'm also mad because I don't know how she will ever be motivated to become something magnificently wonderful if we are all told we are going to be the same. Live in the same size houses, wear the same clothes, drive the same cars. I love the United States of America because we are all different...some of us are poor, and some of us are rich and most of us are somewhere in between...and it IS fair. Because if you want to succeed in this country, you can. Isn't the President pure proof of that?


So, I will step off the soapbox and let you see the pics of Avery's first tea part (of many more to come, I'm sure). I think she really liked it :) Now I'm off to have a bowl of homemade soup, made lovingly by my beautiful mom!


Anyone from Vi-Lou remember Nathan - yes he is a local TV new reporter! All grown up now!

wonderful post! sorry to be late! you are teaching her the right things. we may have all been created equal but we are not all equal in life. we make our way ourselves. we live in a democracy, not a communist country.
