Everyone has an opinion about something

You would think by now that we would all understand that EVERYONE has different viewpoints and opinions.  That we all don't fit in tiny boxes and form to each other.  However, looking at facebook, the news, or any place that you can get some information, clearly we have not learned this.  Not even a little bit.  How is it that we can't figure this out?

I have stated this many times, I'm pretty conservative, AKA I'm a republican.  I'm not always vocal about it.  I don't put it out there all the time.  But, I do lean different ways on different issues.  I don't always agree with what MOST republicans are agreeing on.  This is not what this is about, but I wanted to put it out there.  

I think that it is so stupid that we are all up in arms about a coffee company with a stupid cup.  It's kindof like that Hobby Lobby/ Chick-fil-a thing.  I mean really?  This is what we are going to get upset about??  It's a cup for goodness sake.  A cup.  Now if you really want to think about it, doesn't the Candy Cane signify the blood of Christ?  So, why can't the red cup?  Or even better, who cares it's just a cup.  Oh and having a Christmas picture of a cup DOES NOT make it Christian.  New Flash, Santa is not the Christian symbol of Christmas.  

And I want to go on about Santa.  Can't we just let a man in a big fat red suit be the magic of Christmas for kids?  I mean we can teach them about other things, but can't we just let that be something?  Kids grow up WAY too fast.  They are not little for very long.  They don't believe in things for long.  Please let them be little for as long as possible.  Why is it such a crime to let a child grow slow?  I'm just not understanding that.  Yeah, I don't understand a lot of things.

Getting back to the red cup, if you don't like it don't buy your coffee there.  There are other places that sell coffee now, you don't have to go to Starbucks to get your fix.  Just like you don't have to go to Chick-fil-a to get your chicken fix.  There are many choices.  Choose something else.  Don't make a big deal over a cup.  Let's make a big deal about more important things, getting our troops home, helping homeless people, or letting our kids be little for as long as that is possible.  Stop all this madness over a cup.  Enjoy the holiday's celebrate how you want to.  And take a break from this madness of getting upset over every little thing.  We are going to end up being the generation that dies of Heart Attacks because we don't know how to let anything go.  Stop it, move on!!
