“Politics, politics, politics, politics…..” – Comicus (points if u get the reference)

I do keep up with the election somewhat, but the thing that is puzzling me is not the people running (more of them later) but the voters and the people of this country.  I watch my friends on facebook join groups for one party or the other.  Now don’t get me wrong here, I am all for activism and all for taking a stand in what you believe in, but does no one see the blatantly obvious staring them in the face?  

Generally, people will talk about politicians in a very bad light, they are all thieves, liars, just general all around bastards that you wouldn’t want living on your block.  There is an exception however, usually when we are talking about our local politicians (and by local I do not mean the mayor, i mean your congressman, senators etc) they tend to get a pass, its always the other guy that is slimy.  

So here is the obvious thing…and here is what is annoying the living crap outta me here.  Both sides are boldfaced liars.  They will both do and say whatever they think will get them elected.  Period.  The problem is that you can not trust a thing that comes out of any of their mouths.  And yet…people listen to them and support them like they don’t know that they are being lied to on a daily basis.  My vote would instantly go to an honest guy or gal regardless of what they stood for because I would actually know what they meant.

Do I vote for McCain or Obama?  This is the first election that I really do not know who to vote for.  For the first time I really do not know.  Dirt on both sides comes out all the time and they try to dig at each other and push what they think is important even when its monumentally stupid.  Palin for instance talked about her foreign policy experience being governor (governess?) of Alaska and it being the closest state to Russia.  She forgot Canada as well, geography must not be her strong point.  But seriously, so the fuck what!! As Gov. of Alaska she didn’t really do anything that had to do with Russia, probably never even read a copy of Pravda (even the english edition).  OK OK maybe she organized the buying of some fish from some russian fisherman but that does not qualify as foreign policy experience.  Do not get my point wrong here, my problem is not her lack of foreign policy experience, few presidents had that, it is her saying that she has it when she doesn’t, of her pushing that on us like we are stupid enough to but it, and sadly….we seem to be.  Just one example of tons you can pick from.  

It is a smart thing to tailer your words to an audience, you are taught that in public speaking, but there is a difference between that and just telling people what they want to hear.  

So where do I stand?  What do I think you wonder as I sit here bitching?  I used to be a republican, but now I am far more of an independent.  My views depend on the topic, generally I tend to go with the republicans on financial issues, but lately even republicans dont even follow conservative economics.  <tangent>You want to fix the economy, enact the FairTax, plain and simple, do it right the fuck now to take effect Jan 1.  For those of you reading this, go harass your congressman about it.  </tangent>  I tend to be more liberal on social issues, I really could not give a fuck if u are straight, gay, black, white, pink, red, man, woman, lolcat, rich, poor, or whatever.  I consider myself a human and citizen of the world foremost.  I detest politicians playing to the lowest common denominator and detest the people who let it happen even more.  It annoys me that people talk about building a wall or fence and spending billions on it with the illusion that it will stop (or even slow for more than a couple months) illegal immigration.  I am not for illegal immigration, so don’t get that idea, I just want solutions that work, not ones that sound good in the press and get dumb rednecks up in arms patrolling the border.  FYI I am married to an immigrant, a legal one, who went through the whole pain in the ass process.  My wife’s english is better than mine (shes on facebook too you can add her, and my daughter is bi-lingual.  I am not that concerned about immigrants learning english well as it is a single generational problem, the kids learn english. 

So the short version is even with all their talking (hmmm, the real cause of global warming?) no one really has any fucking clue as to what the people running really think and really want to do.  Based on that, how can anyone really made an informed decision?

Ben Stein Vs. Sputtering Atheists by L. Brent Bozell on Creators.com – A Syndicate Of Talent

Ben Stein Vs. Sputtering Atheists by L. Brent Bozell on Creators.com – A Syndicate Of Talent: “”

L Brent Bozell vs. Knowledge

You state that “Theirs is an ideology that preaches the freedom of thought and expression at every opportunity, yet practices absolute intolerance toward dissension.” referring to the ever so specific PC liberal media I guess.

Mr. Bozell, there is a difference between intolerance towards something serious and towards something ridiculous. If someone made a movie of the intolerance in the scientific community towards the green cheese moon theory that does not mean that valid views are being stifled. It means that most scientists won’t even waste their time to talk about it because we already know otherwise. Just stating that we believe the moon is made of green cheese does not make it so.

Doc, what’s up with snooping? – BostonHerald.com

Doc, what’s up with snooping? – BostonHerald.com: “”

Ok, let’s start this post with a nice big WTF?!?! Massachusetts has pediatricians asking all children about their parents drinking, drug, gun and other habits. Other habits meaning, do your parents make u feel uncomfortable, or are u sexually abused? Now I will be fair here, if there is some clue or reason to ask then fine, I have no problem with that. But in MA they HAVE to ask.

Where they fuck does a state get off with doing that? Just by asking the kids those things they are making them wonder if mommy and daddy are doing something wrong even if they are not. For the people in MA, to whatever crack addled, dim witted, mentally challenged fuck wits who came up with this, Fuck You! This is from a parent.

Ok so MA, the state with Boston, with a nice big irish population, and you have the docs asking if mommy and daddy drink, and if so how much, they are irish for fuck sakes, of course they drink.

If parents weren’t drinking before, or doing drugs, worrying about the state forcing docs to ask kids about their parents behaviors is a damned good reason to start. Pass me the needle, a Guinness, and the glock please…

Geek Squad trip lands child porn “trafficker” in slammer for 10 years


Geek Squad trip lands child porn “trafficker” in slammer for 10 years
: “”

While I certainly applaud anyone getting child porn people, this one is a bit odd I think. Now let me be completely clear here, I do NOT know all the facts of this one. That said, it seems odd to me that Geek Squad would be trolling through somebody’s files on their computer. I mean ok if it was on the desktop and labeled something suspicious, like naked kid pics or something yeah I can see checking then calling the cops.

Even assuming he is not a techie kind of guy, which is a fair assumption since he took his comp to geek squad, I would think he would hide files like that a little bit. Does Geek Squad just dig through tons of files on everyones computer? If someone has a pic of their kid in the tub should they worry?

Apparently this is twice this week GS found something on peoples computers, do they now feel it is ok to go through and read or look at anything on anyones computer that is brought it? I hope no one has their credit info saved on quicken or something…..

Halloween party dumped at school in Broomfield

Rocky Mountain News – Denver and Colorado’s reliable source for breaking news, sports and entertainment: Education: “”

This blog is really just a ranting place for me I guess. There are just so many things to rant about too. This story is about a school that is dumping halloween for a fall festival. This happens a lot now I guess, I know one of the biggest churches in the town I work in has their fall festival on Trick-or-Treat night.
Is there a serious worry about kids becoming infatuated with the occult due to halloween? To a kid Halloween is about dressing up and getting candy. I am a parent, and for the last 2 years and this year my daughter has dressed up as a ladybug, uniqua (from the backyardigans), and this year it will be cinderella. All very occult and scary of course.
This is the same thing as Harry Potter, people (meaning mainly churches and religious nutters) saying that it’s corrupting the kids, turning them to the occult, making satanists out of them. Oh sure I am positive that there are some harry potter fans that have gotten way too into it, and think that they can do magic, but maybe, just maybe, these kids had a problem first?
Whatever the origins of the holiday might be, thats not what it is now. So you christians know, christmas is not a christian holiday either, you stole it from another religion, rebranded it so it fit yours and moved on. By walking through any walmart, you can see how little christmas has to do with christ anymore either.

If your kid is really at risk of becoming involved with the occult due to Halloween, you need to do a better job at parenting.
For schools, drop the fall festival garbage, if u are going to have a halloween party, let it be a halloween party, let the kids dress up.
For churches, stop taking away a fun time for kids, let them be kids, let them dress up, let them go get some candy. Stop trying to take away a simple and fun time for kids.

Teacher: I was fired, said Bible isn’t literal

DesMoinesRegister.com: “”

Sigh, you know, as much as I really do believe that people have the right to think and believe what they want, it does not mean that you should be stupid. Yes religious fanatics, I did just call you stupid, this is going mainly at Creationists and ID’ers.

But let’s assume you are right even, ok…

Assuming he’s able to master the feat of controlling his rebirth, as Dalai Lamas supposedly have for the last 600 years, the situation is shaping up in which there could be two Dalai Lamas: one picked by the Chinese government, the other by Buddhist monks. ‘It will be a very hot issue,’ says Paul Harrison, a Buddhism scholar at Stanford. ‘The Dalai Lama has been the prime symbol of unity and national identity in Tibet, and so it’s quite likely the battle for his incarnation will be a lot more important than the others.’

So where in the world will the next Dalai Lama be born? Harrison and other Buddhism scholars agree that it will likely be from within the 130,000 Tibetan exiles spread throughout India, Europe and ”

Daily Kos: Festival in Milwaukee to Honor Terrorist UPDATED

Daily Kos: Festival in Milwaukee to Honor Terrorist UPDATED: “Two radical anti-choice groups are looking to honor Paul Hill this July. Hill was executed in 2003 for the murder of Dr. John Britton and James Barrett at an abortion clinic in 1994. The event is sponsored by Children Need Heroes, Street Preach, and of course The Paul Hill Memorial (I’m not going to link). The press release says that:”

Why oh why is this shit ok? What is wrong with christians? OK, yes most christians probably don’t agree with the murder of someone even if it is a doctor who did abortions, but where is their outrage? Where are the christians deploring this violent action? This shit gets me so ill and riled up.

Teachers drop the Holocaust to avoid offending Muslims | the Daily Mail

OK I havent posted for a while, but this one needs posting…You do not stop teaching things that happened because it offends someone. The same with evolution, i’m sorry some creationists don’t agree but its fact folks, if you don’t believe it then it says something about your either stupidity or ignorance. You should be offended at the Holocost, but not because of its teaching, but because it happened. If your religion says that it didn’t happen, then you should reexamine your religion, not the other way around.

Deal with it you ignorant people.
