It’s Friday. . . and I’ll take The Cure over Rebecca Black any century. I express this in excessive degrees of the passage of time because even if there is no afterlife my corpse will be rolling in its grave every time that song plays. Of course, I would take Rebecca Black over the current Republican government congress any day too. At least her inane creations don’t torment the children of America with pizza-vegetables just so some corporation can continue to make loads of money off of government contracts to supply the nation with overweight 8 year olds.
vote your values, not your party. And spend some time figuring out what
YOUR values are, not what Fox News and the Grand Ole Fuck-Ups tell you
to believe. I have some real news for you: Fox News is legally allowed
to partake in yellow journalism, thanks to the fact that they were
recently ruled an entertainment station and thus can’t be held to the
same standards. This comes as no surprise to me, as they clearly don’t
have any. Moral decency would be a good start. Accurate, unbiased,
objective news would be a good second. Firing Bill O’Reilly would be a
third. Hmm. . . That may fall under one & two. That man is a sick,
vehement, vicious fucktard. Yes, today is one of those days where I
appreciate the irony.
we are at it, let’s revisit our education and use all those useful
tools that have been around since ancient Greece, the ones that show us
where the fallacies in both our own argument and the arguments of
others. I realize the babble box is doing most of our thinking for our
these days, but I encourage everyone to do a little thinking for
get me wrong. I fully support differing beliefs. I am just of the
opinion that in order to have an opinion worth bringing to the table you
should have developed it on your own via an unbiased source of
information. This means one must be educated enough to recognize what
biased versus unbiased sources are. A good, well-rounded education means
not having people who have never heard of the different fallacies, nor
incapable of recognizing Michelangelo’s David when they see it, or, for
the love of God, staring blankly when someone makes a joke that refers
to Gregory Mendel. How about Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Einstein. Know
any of them? It means being aware that Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo,
and Donatello weren’t just turtles.
will have to forgive me if I don’t think Jersey Shore, So You Think You
Can Dance, Real Housewives, Antique Road Show, Maury, Survivor, et
fucking cetera are worth anyone’s time. Ok. Maybe you might learn
something about history on Antique Road Show, but I couldn’t say for
certain. . . I dislike listening to people talk about trite TV shows
even more than I despise watching them. And I won’t even bother
mentioning commercials, because I am already ranting enough as it is.
thing that has started bugging me recently. Just because I have little
respect for Republican politics, doesn’t mean I’m a liberal. A man I
know apparently thought it was necessary to point out that he is a
“gun-waving politician.” As if I cared. I am not concerned with the
status of the Second Amendment. It wouldn’t do me any harm if someone
got rid of it. But most people I know own guns, including my dad, who
owns more than most people I know. And he openly admits that he carries
one on him because he’s more worried about people than dangerous
animals. I even own a gun, technically. It’s just not in my house.
all those people who are worried about the Second Amendment, which
isn’t going anywhere, it amazes me how much it blinds people to all the
other attempts to trample on your rights is going on. Corporations being
recognized as people, CISPA and SOPA, LGBT rights, women’s rights.
get so mad at Obama, as if he weren’t just the most visible person
being held in contrast to a group of people, CONGRESS who are really out
to fuck us all over. Do we know what a scapegoat is? How about sleight
of hand? Because the Republican party and its supporters, like Fox News,
are using one hand to point at the Big Bad Wolf while the other hand is
jacking up your basic human rights and much of what else makes America
great with other hand like a kleptomaniac in Scrooge McDuck’s mansion.
you can’t tell, I live in the middle of territory controlled by the
Religious Right. These things start to boil up inside after a while.
And a thousand words, goodnight
