Sharing her “Birthday Wish” actress and Democrat party activist Alyssa Milano took a shot at “flag waving and gun toting” Americans, arguing that “True freedom is one good paying job, with a livable wage, that affords you time with your family without worrying about putting food on the table.”
Milano writes in the make-up free selfie post “No make up. Just my skin that I’ve become super comfortable in. My body makes crackling sounds when I walk. My daughter asked me the other day why my butt is so jiggley. Sometimes I forget things. I’m tired all of the time. But overall, I’m just grateful for this life. My life. If someone told me that for the next life I get to choose who I come back as—I’d choose me again. Even with the heartache I’ve endured.”
She continues “Like kintsugi—I’ve been broken open and mended and broken once more. I marvel at our capacity to heal. You have that super power too. We are all resilient. This resilience is taken advantage of by too many—friends, bosses, kids, our own government even. “Buck up! Pull yourself up by your boot straps! You’re fine.”
“Maybe. But it’s ok not to be,” Milano adds “True freedom isn’t not wearing a mask and going to the bar. True freedom is one good paying job, with a livable wage, that affords you time with your family without worrying about putting food on the table. That’s my Birthday wish. That we will live in a country that understands that providing programs for people in times of need is their fiduciary duty. And that there might be a day, that we are truly free. Free of worry. Free of stress. Free of fear of eviction. Free of the fear of how to feed our children. *That’s* real freedom. The flag waving and gun toting and refusing to wear a mask to keep others safe. That is not freedom—it is pageantry.
“So…my birthday wish… is true freedom. For you. And you. And you,” she concludes.
