How lucky do I feel that I live in America? I feel damn lucky. Tonight's show was over Iran. You know that evil country on the other side of Iraq. I just don't understand how their country is still allowed to treat women like DOGS. Doesn't make sense to me. Here in America we are able to have women as Judges, Lawyers, Doctors, and even have a woman Senator run for President. However in Iran the men do not look at women. Nor do they show any affection towards women in public. The women have to wear their"Hijab". Hijab is is the Arabic term for "cover". They have to wear this out into public at all times. I am sure you have seen them around here in the USA. Which I don't think they should wear them here. They have freedom here, why do they do it? I just don't get it. Do you?
One segment of the show they did say that some women in Iran were trying to take them off. The women in Iran are getting stronger and stronger each and everyday to stand up for what they think is right. They showed one lady getting arrested. The lady was kicking and screaming.
Again, I just don't get it!
And you know what? Another thing that gets under my skin is that you have these people that are from Iran, Iraq etc., that come to America and they complain about how America is wrong, or should do this or do that, but yet they are forgetting they are in our COUNTRY....If they don't like how we run things then LEAVE.
My point for this blog is just remember that we all need to be PROUD to BE AMERICANS! Be thankful that we are able to choose where to work, what to wear, and go from point A to point B without having to answer to anyone.
Remember to Vote in 2008!
Until then...Peace OUT!
