The campaign has certainly heated up. Romney’s STUPID remark about Big Bird will certainly go down in history. Obama was weak on the stage, but at least he didn’t say anything THAT regrettable! And you don’t tell the person moderating the debate that you want to cut funding and put him out of a job. Romney has the tact of a doorknob. No, at least a doorknob knows enough to stay quiet and be of service to the people who use the damn door.
I just wonder will happen to Burt and Ernie in all of this. No, I don’t wonder what will happen, I actually KNOW what will happen. If the PBS debacle budget cut doesn’t get them, the anti-gay marriage asshats certainly will.
Should we talk about Tinky-Winky?
Fookin’ PURPLE Teletubby with a PURSE! What more evidence do you need to realize that the future of America’s morality and fiscal crisis depends on getting rid of evil characters like this?
Oh, Lord. We have real problems. We are engaged in warfare that costs us billions and billions of dollars, and if I understand Romney correctly, that is exactly what he likes. So….let’s just go around the world foist ourselves on cultures that hate us – and then let’s have 2,000 of our own soldiers killed and how many thousands more living without arms and legs – just so we can be morally right about something. And we’re going to fix the budget and take care of all of this by removing EDUCATIONAL programming from television.
I am SOOOO glad I was raised with different values. I am SOOOO glad my uncle was best friends with Hubert Humphrey and I learned what it means to be a “global” citizen who values diversity and respects people’s personal choices. I am SOOOO glad my other uncle was a journalist in World War II and came back with the real story of the German occupation. I am SOOOO glad my father was part of the effort to create a world that was fair for everyone. I am SOOO glad I wore long hair and love beads and batik-print blouses. I am SOOOO glad I protested against people who would try to control what we think and believe. I am SOOO glad I stood up for a woman’s right to choose.
The political climate that lies under the surface of this country is frightening to the core. We are NOT a nation founded on “Christian” principles. Why do people forget that salient point? A former friend of mine was ranting on and on about the constitutional “right” for marriage to be between one man and one woman. There is not ONE FOOKIN’ WORD about marriage in our constitution. Not one! I also found the remarks quite amusing since the person had been unfaithful in marriage for the last 4 years or so. I find it quite hypocritical for someone to have such strong opinions about marriage, religion, or whatever and not follow the “rules” set forth by the dictates of the vows. Not that I am a perfect person, but I don’t rant on and on about being a vegetarian and then sneak off to McDonald’s for a burger when nobody is looking. It’s that same morality OOPSIE that makes me furious. If you aren’t faithful in your own relationships, do NOT argue with me about what other people want to do legally and morally. Just don’t.
And now…to chill your heart and drive home my point, watch this video and learn why God hates Nebraska and Iowa. I do believe if Romney is elected, we would be VERY close to the edge of accepting something like this as okay to implement everywhere. Radical right wing religious nutballs scare the hell out of me – be they in the Middle East or here in the United States. When you preach hatred against anyone, you are a sick bastard. If this is the world you think God intended, you must be the most unhappy fucks on the planet.
