Honestly Margaret, I cannot believe that Susan Boyle went undiscovered for 47 years but that crazy Celine Dion has been wailing away for decades making millions. I just don’t get the appeal. Where is the justice? Sort of the way it’s just not fair that we lost Ann Richards but George W. Bush is allowed to live.
And speaking of Texas Governors, that Neanderthal Hairy Perry is just plain out of his mind. Does he realize that the United States might take him up on his offer to secede? After all that would finally rid the U.S. Senate of two more idiot politicians from Texas: John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison. Talk about Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dipshit.
I find it very interesting, and even a little bit entertaining, that the likes of Perry, Cornyn, Coulter, Hannity and Limbaugh are all calling for a revolution because Obama is ignoring the will of the people. Who exactly do they think elected Obama?
When Perry recently spoke of secession he offered the following comments:
“My hope is that America and Washington in particular pays attention. We’ve got a great union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, who knows what may come of that.”
It’s a variation of the same theme being offered by conservative Republicans everywhere. So here is my question: Who exactly do they think runs Washington? Suggesting that the government is not “the people” is akin to suggesting a church is merely the building rather than those who choose to worship within.
We have always been a government of, by and for the people. Nothing has changed – except the people. And the people spoke loud and clear in November. If you have an issue about what’s coming out of Washington, get up off your lazy ass and get involved. Granted 56% of the voting age population turned out this past election but if you see the cup as half empty then you have to be shocked that almost half of the nation’s voters took a pass. And honestly folks, those of us who do vote keep sending the same people right back to Washington.
The fact that you Republicans gave Joe the Plumber a microphone again just proves that you think your shit doesn’t stink. Well it does. Flush the plumber and move on. We can’t even get together to make sure every child has health insurance but paying taxes is cause for every tractor pull in the country to suddenly become a tea party. Where’s the humanity? Where’s the Christian spirit? Where’s the Pepto Bismol?
I know that I seem all over the map on this one. I have been sick and have had nothing better to do but watch cable news all day. All this finger pointing going on right now has me really pissed. The fingers should be pointed at ourselves. Your Congressman has an office in your district. Have you stopped by? Have you written a letter? Do you know his or her voting record? Do you rely on more than one source to get your news? Honestly, do you even care?
I am so tired of idiots who forward emails to me about “fantastic” letters to the editor or “I agree totally” with what this person has to say… You know the emails I am talking about. Those stupid, factually incorrect rants that get passed around like fleas in a dog pound. My brother is one of those idiots, sending out mass emails as if his life depended on it. I’ve got some advice for all you rabid emailers out there. Read the damn thing before you send it on and do enough research to determine if it is even true. Honestly, you might as well be passing on a stomach virus with as much shit that gets sent to my email box.
Most recently the subject matter of these emails seems to more and more be about immigration and the downfall of the American way of life.
People – when the population of Latin American begins to look like North America and North America begins to look like South America and East finally does meet West, it’s not such a bad thing. A global society means we finally have to figure out how we are all going to live together peacefully on this planet.
If you want to preserve Christian values you might start with living like a Christian and not some racist asshole who can’t stand how many Muslims have moved into your neck of the woods or what your neighbor is doing in the bedroom. And if you want to preserve American values then don’t elect a President who condones torture. But if you want to stop the globalization of nations and the blending of the world’s population then use a condom, support Planned Parenthood and legalize gay marriage. Because those are the only things I know that actually don’t add to the growing population on this finite planet we call home. For crying out loud Governor Palin – the kids were in the next room and didn’t use a condom. For someone going on and on about family values, you seem pretty clueless about what is happening within your own family.
OK. I think I am done for now. I guess being laid up meant a bunch of stuff was stuck in my head and it just needed to come out. If you come back again, I promise that next time I will focus. Thanks for all the well wishes. I mean it. Really.
