Shall I Amend My Previous Post?

Sure, why not?

The biggest threat we've got just got bigger.

It's not just Obama and his belief that he's the second coming. It's Hillary Clinton and her belief that she's untouchable, too.


Obama and Clinton now have "truth squads" which will be roaming your state if you're one of the Super Tuesday participants.

This comes from my local newspaper and it includes some highlights, such as:

"Nick Kimball, Obama's Minnesota spokesman, said the squad's response to a negative attack will vary depending on the situation but might be something like a news release to debunk bad information.

"'This sends a notice that if these false negative attacks we have seen, if any of that comes to Minnesota, we do stand ready and prepared to respond forcefully and quickly,' Kimball said. 'In the age of the Internet, rumors and innuendo spread very quickly.'

"The campaign will introduce other Truth Squads in most of the 22 states caucusing on Super Tuesday.

"Chief rival for the Democratic nomination Sen. Hillary Clinton posted a news release to her campaign site Monday announcing similar teams of 'Rapid Responders' in all Super Tuesday states made up of elected officials and community leaders who will 'track distortions of Hillary's record and answer quickly'."

Does anyone see what I'm leaning towards by reporting this? Does anyone get what I'm hinting at? Does anyone see an armband with a swastika in the middle of it? Does anyone see Kenya-like results from this kind of bullshit? Does anyone else think of Egypt or Burma or Saudi Arabia, where opposition is crushed simply because opposition cannot be tolerated?

Since there are elected officials on these "truth squads", which sounds like something that Orwell could have only had a wet dream about, what's to stop them from raising someone's property taxes based on how they think or feel? What's to stop them from ordering police to conduct "routine traffic stops" or issue tickets simply for being on the other side?

Do you understand what I'm saying, people?

This is not alarmist. This is reality. All it takes is for one of these schmucks to decide that they're going to go over the edge and send a message so that no one forgets not to fuck with them.

And I can see this Nick Kimball asshole going right over that edge. He says as much when he says that his squad will "respond forcefully" and that the response "will vary depending on the situation".

A brick through someone's window, a harassing phone call. Just a step away from burning a cross in someone's yard, isn't it? Not too far from invading someone's home and arresting them in the middle of the night and then putting them on a train somewhere, isn't it?

Mark my words, ladies and gentlemen. This is going to get very ugly, very fast. I'm trying to stop it before it does by making you aware of the crap that we're about to be fed.

Barack Obama: The Biggest Threat We've Got


With a title like that, you know I've got to have lost my fucking mind, right?

Nah. Not today.

Barack Obama is the single biggest threat we've got in this country and if you don't believe me, just hold on for the ride.

What constitutes a threat to this country? Someone or something that could do great damage to the country, right?

Before you Obama cultists out there get your underwear all knotted up, Hillary Clinton is a threat, too. The difference between her and Obama is that the Obama cultists are drinking the Kool-Aid, actually believing that he's going to do something for them, that he's "uniting" the country.

I think these people should seek professional help. They've been brainwashed by the culture and by the media that perpetuates that culture.

You'd never catch me voting for Hillary Clinton. You'd also never catch me voting for Barack Obama.

Understand something about Barack Obama. Virtually everything you've heard him say and everything you've heard someone say about him is either a lie or a complete twist of history as we should know it.

Today, Ted Kennedy, in endorsing the Illinois senator, said that Barack Obama opposed the Iraq war.

This is a complete twist of history.

Allow me to explain if you need it.

Barack Obama could not have opposed the war in Iraq, at least not on record, because Barack Obama never had to vote for the damn thing in the first place. Ted Kennedy's a great liar, isn't he?

What Teddy Boy didn't tell you or me or anyone else for that matter is that his friend, his new coattail pal, has voted on numerous occasions to fund and thus extend the war in Iraq.

Barack Obama's history gets just a bit murkier, doesn't it?

Further, Obama has never once said that he intends to end the war. I haven't even heard this at one of his numerous rallies with all of the Kool-Aid drinkers waving their signs and their banners and their flags.

He has no plan to end this massacre and guess what, ladies and gentlemen? You're going to be sending your children to this massacre under President Barack Obama just as surely as people have sent their children to the meat grinder under Bush.

And that leads me to my next point.

Barack Obama knows nothing of history.

And this is truly sad for a guy that has degrees and a college education and is revered as being very well learned.

A couple weeks back, he had an interview with the Reno Gazette, in which he said, "Reagan changed the trajectory of America in a way that Richard Nixon did not and in a way that Bill Clinton did not. He put us on a fundementally different path because the country was ready for it."

Well, leaving aside the fact that Reagan was a scumbag and should have never been president (but again, like with Obama himself, the people of this country drank the Kool-Aid and fell for the actor who lied to their faces), let's take that statement apart.

Let's start with Bill Clinton.

Far be it from me to be a fan of Bill Clinton. I consider the man to be an unindicted war criminal, as I consider every president of the United States to have been. If I had my way, Bill Clinton would be in prison, wiling away his days, scratching hash marks against his prison wall. So would Old Man Bush, Dumbfuck Bush, Reagan's bones, Jimmy Carter, and so on all the way back to Washington. Dig 'em up, toss them in a cell and let's get on with telling the truth.

But I digress...

The statement about Bill Clinton was made to provoke a reaction. Obama's learning politics fast.

The comment about Nixon, however, proves Mr. Obama's ignorance of history. And he can almost be excused for it, because Barack Obama was six years-old when Nixon became president for the first time, ten when he became president the second and twelve when Nixon flew away in disgrace.

The thing is, I can't excuse him for it because he's speaking as if he's some kind of authority on the subject. And because he wants to be president.

Anything Barack Obama knows about Richard Nixon, he knows from history books. Thus, I feel as qualified to talk about Nixon as Obama does. But, unlike Obama, I don't presume myself to be an expert on these things and thus I don't pass judgment as arbitrarily as he does.

However, because I'm just an asshole, I do want to talk about what appears to be Obama's hero worship of Reagan.

Obama says, "[Reagan] put us on a fundementally different path because the country was ready for it."

And that fundementally different path had sign posts like Iran-Contra and union-busting and arming Saddam Hussein on it.

And the Kool-Aid continued to flow as a spokesgeek for Obama came out and said, "But Hillary Clinton liked Reagan, too." Not an actual quote but it might as well have been. His actual quote ended with this:

"It's hard to take Hillary Clinton's latest attack seriously when she's the one who supported George Bush's war in Iraq, the most damaging Republican idea of our generation."

That spokesgeek's name is Bill Burton and Burton shows his ignorance by, of course, leaving out the fact that the Democratic Congress, Barack Obama included, has voted to continue this war, which, by the way, started not in 2003 but in 1991 and continued right up through Bill Clinton's eight years (just one of the reasons Bill Clinton should be in jail) and right on through the eight years of Bush.

Is it just me or is everyone in the Obama camp ignorant of everything?

I quote now from a piece by one of the few decent journalists on the planet, John Pilger, as he wrote in June of last year:

"In the meantime, Iran is being softened up, with the liberal media playing almost the same role it did before the Iraq invasion. And, as for the Democrats, look at how Barack Obama has become the voice of the Council On Foreign Relations, one of the propaganda organs of the old liberal Washington establishment. Obama writes that while he wants the troops home, 'We must not rule out military force against long-standing adversaries such as Iran and Syria.' Listen to this from the liberal Obama: 'At moments of great peril in the past century, our leaders ensured that America, by deed and by example, led and lifted the world, that we stood and fought for the freedom sought by billions of people beyond their borders."

Pilger writes earlier of the absurdity that is/was John Wayne.

I want you to re-read Obama's final comments in the paragraph above and tell me that it doesn't sound like John Wayne should be reading them.

If there's one thing I can't brook, it's bullshit like the statement as made by Obama as read by John Wayne.

Moments of great peril? In the last 100 years, what moments of great peril?

Leaders leading by deed and example? Whom?

Lifting the world? Yeah, to see if they can find oil under there.

And standing and fighting for freedom for billions in other countries? Name one of these countries that didn't have people already inside fighting for their own freedoms. In many cases, when the US decided to get "involved", it destroyed the movement. In many cases, the US then declared these movements to be outlaws, rebels, terrorists.

Again, Barack Obama proves his ignorance towards history. And the Kool-Aid continues to flow.

And this is why he's the biggest threat we've got. Because he can sit there and smile and talk about how he's going to bring change and how he's good for America and how he's a uniter and not a divider (where have I heard that one before?) and, meanwhile, he's got no substance, no plans and no sembalance of difference from the current puppet that sits in the Oval Office playing video games.

I've stated already that I wouldn't be voting for Hillary Clinton so for those out there that think this is a hit piece on Obama for the purposes of making her look oh-so-much-better, please read slower.

For those that plan on voting for Obama, I'd dearly love to hear from you. Tell me why you think Barack Obama is the man to lead this country and why you think that he's not going to be beholden to the puppetmasters behind the throne. And please don't mention the names Hillary or Bill Clinton in your explanation.

My Thoughts On The Death Of Heath Ledger, And The Aftermath

Heath Ledger is dead. May he rest in peace!!

The man hadn't even been dead more than three hours when the vultures started circling!! Over on CNN Primetime News with Erica Hill, the ridiculous gossip was flying fast and furious. It was on this show that the suggestion was made that perhaps his role as the Joker in the upcoming Batman movie had something to do with his death or his mental state. Excuse me? I would be more inclined to believe that he's dead because of the writer's strike before I'd believe he died because of a movie role. Both suggestions are ridiculous at the very least!! The more their mouths opened, the more outlandish it became!!

Nobody knows why Heath Ledger is dead, and the media is shitting in their pants today because the autopsy was inconclusive. Last night they were trashing him to hell and back, and today they're pissed off because they don't know how he died. Typical!! It's Anna Nicole Smith all over again!!

People may never know how he died. But it's really nobody's business. This man is dead. He should be allowed to be dead in peace!! Any speculation about his death or what he did in life doesn't matter anymore. He's DEAD!! I'm tired of hearing these bitches out there commenting on the life and death of a man that they didn't even know. Quite frankly, I hope their asses get sued.

To Fred Phelps and his loser followers, I hope you all rot in hell. They're all worthless pieces of shit taking up oxygen. In case you're wondering what I'm talking about, Fred Phelps and his people have announced that they will picket Heath Ledger's funeral because he dared to star in Brokeback Mountain.

Pro-Lifers Should Be Committed!!

In what I can only describe as completely INSANE, a pro-life group in Wisconsin decided to mail plastic fetuses to residents in Racine. They didn't just send it to a few people. They sent it to 44,000 people!!

Right To Life Group Sends Plastic Fetus In Mail

RACINE, Wis. -- A right to life group in Racine is under fire after mailing controversial material to 44,000 people.

It included an informational letter, a fundraising envelope and a small plastic fetus.

Mystical Listrom said she was not happy with what she found inside when she opened a letter from Wisconsin Right to Life accompanied by a plastic fetus.

"It's my right to choose to do what I want with my body. I shouldn't have people telling me what I can and can't do with my body," Listrom said.

Her neighbor, Glenda Pollock, got the same package.

"If they had sent a letter explaining why they think abortion should not be allowed, I wouldn't have a problem with that. It was the plastic fetus that bothered me," Pollock said.

"We thought it would be appropriate to send out some information to get people talking about the subject," said Dave Obernberger of Wisconsin Right to Life.

Dave and Bonnie Obernberger, with the Racine County chapter of Wisconsin Right to Life, are the people behind the mailing.

They said the plastic figure represents an 11- or 12-week fetus.

They sent it out this week to mark the 35-year anniversary of Roe Vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.

"I pray that they'll look at it a little more than being offended by it, but being educated by it," Dave Obernberger said.

The Obernbergers said they have already gotten some response, and they expect more.

Pollock wasted no time having her voice heard. She brought the package to the post office and mailed it back.

"I had to pay to have it returned because it was a non-profit mailing, which I was happy to pay. It was just over $1 and it was well worth it," Pollock said.

Pollock filed a complaint with the U.S. Postal Service; however, it doesn't appear to be illegal.

Postal officials said it doesn't fit their standards of obscene or lewd, but they said people can fill out a form that would prevent them from getting mail from Wisconsin Right to Life in the future.

The mailers were sent to every home in Racine and to some of the surrounding suburbs.

So not only did they send a plastic fetus in the mail to 44,000 people, but they had the audacity to send a "fundraising envelope" too!! Gee, could that be because they spent all of their fucking money on this shit? Nah, couldn't be!!

These psychotic people actually hope that people won't be offended by it. Really? If people aren't supposed to be offended by a plastic fetus and a donation envelope being sent to them in the mail, I would like to make a suggestion. I would suggest that 44,000 people send the Obernbergers CONDOMS along with information on how to use them. Let's see if they're offended when 44,000 packages arrive in their mailbox containing things that they don't agree with. Along with the condoms, people should enclose pictures of dead women from around the world who were denied access to a safe and legal abortion if they can get their hands on the pictures. Will that offend them? Perhaps they should look beyond the offensive nature of the mailing and educate themselves!!

I love the suggestion that the Post Office has. Filling out a form will not prevent these psychos from sending people mail. They will just change their name so that they can bypass the mail blockage.

I'm going to send these pyschos some condoms. The Post Office can't consider them lewd or obscene because condoms are shipped all the time through the mail. Who would like to join me? Their address is below:

You're Poor If Your Salary Is $100,000 Per Year

You're poor if your salary is $100,000 per year. Well, that is of course if you're a Fox News pundit!!

Fox News pundit: I was ‘poor’ at $100,000 a year

In 1995, current Fox News judicial commentator Andrew Napolitano left his seat on New Jersey’s Superior Court to begin a career as a news commentator. Napolitano told the Washington Times recently that the reason he left the judiciary is because “I really was tired of being poor.” His salary as a judge? $100,000 a year.

Gee, I wish I could be poor and have a $100,000 salary per year!! I didn't know that we had redefined the "class system" in this country. So if he's poor and makes $100,000 a year, where does that leave everyone that makes less than that? Are they the ULTRA SUPER MEGA POOR?

Hey shithead, why don't you spend some time with the real POOR? Perhaps then maybe you'd learn a thing or two about what it really means to live in poverty. Oh wait, you can't be bothered. You have to spend your time pretending that you live in poverty, instead of actually doing something about the poverty issue.

Contrary to the beliefs of assholes like Andrew Napolitano, people don't choose to live in poverty. Who the hell would? People don't purposely live in poverty so that they can get "handouts".

Ridge Says Waterboarding Is Torture

This, my friend, is why you're no longer the Director of Homeland Security. You don't read the Republican talking points. You don't repeat them ad nauseam!!

Ridge: ‘No doubt…waterboarding is torture.’

Former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge told the AP in an interview, “There’s just no doubt in my mind — under any set of rules — waterboarding is torture.” He added, “I believe, unlike others in the administration, that waterboarding was, is — and will always be — torture. That’s a simple statement.” In a separate interview with The Associated Press on Thursday, the current Homeland Security secretary, Michael Chertoff, refused to say what he thinks of the interrogation technique.

For the millionth time, waterboarding is torture!! If you use waterboarding, you're committing acts of torture. For those who think it's not torture, I suggest that you volunteer to be schooled in waterboarding. Perhaps when you've spent a little time thinking you're going to drown, you may change your mind. Perhaps when you're having your "Come to Jesus" moment, you might think twice before you ever suggest that waterboarding be used on anyone else!!

Kerry Endorses The "Savior"

In what I can only describe as a slap in the face to his former running mate, John Kerry has endorsed the "Savior" over John Edwards.

So what exactly was John Edwards to John Kerry? Was he just a means for Kerry to become President? Let's face it!! A lot of people in this country didn't want John Kerry as the candidate but we were stuck with him!! We were told to hold our noses and vote for him. When we did that and he walked away from the stolen election, he became the ass in the party's mascot. Had I been John Edwards, I would have handed Kerry the biggest ass-whooping of his life for walking away from the Presidency when it was clearly once again stolen by the Bush regime!!

Having said that, John Edwards should actually consider himself lucky that he didn't get endorsed by John Kerry this time around. After walking away from the Presidency that was stolen from him, anyone who is endorsed by him is only going to be hurt by it. I wouldn't choose a guy who was endorsed by a man that had the Presidency in his hands, had it stolen from him, and walked away without putting up a fight.

On another note, I received the mass e-mail that this story was making reference to. What e-mail was that? It was the one that they claim is going to be a huge thing for the "Savior"!! Even if I hadn't already decided not to vote for the "Savior", this e-mail wouldn't sway my vote in the "Savior's" direction.

Here's a look at the e-mail that this story is making reference to!!

Martin Luther King said, “The time is always right to do what is right.” So I'm choosing this time to share an important decision I've made, one I believe is right for this country.

The JohnKerry.com community has been very important to me and very important to the Democratic resurgence over the last couple of years, so I wanted to let all of you know my decision before I confirm it with anyone else. I want to share with you my conviction that in a field of fine Democratic candidates, the next President of the United States can be, should be, and will be Barack Obama. Each of our candidates would make a fine President, and we are blessed with a strong field. But for this moment, at this time in our nation's history, Barack Obama is the right choice.

Please join me in supporting Barack Obama’s candidacy.

I’m proud to have helped introduce Barack to our nation when I asked him to speak to our national convention, and there Barack's words and vision burst out. On that day he reminded Americans that our “true genius is faith in simple dreams, an insistence on small miracles.” And with his leadership we can build simple dreams, and we can turn millions of small miracles into real change for our country.

At this particular moment, with our country faced with great challenges in our economy, in our environment, and in our foreign policy, and with our politics torn by division, Barack Obama can bring transformation to our country. With Barack, we can build a new majority of Americans from all regions who can turn the page on the politics of Karl Rove and begin a new politics, one worthy of our nation's history and promise. We can bring millions of disaffected people – young and old – to the great task of governing and making a difference, child to child, community to community.

Please click here to give what you can to Barack Obama’s campaign for President and help build this future for our country.

The moment is now, and the candidate for this moment is Barack Obama. Like him, I also lived abroad as a young man, and I share with him a healthy respect for the advantage of knowing other cultures and countries, not from a book or a briefing, but by personal experience, by gut, by instinct. He knows the issues from the deep study of a legislator, and he knows them from a life lived outside of Washington. His is the wisdom of real-world experience combined with the intellect of a man who has thought deeply about the challenges we face.

History has given us this moment. But we need to decide what to do with it. I believe, with this moment, we should make Barack Obama President of the United States.

Please join me in supporting his campaign.

Thank you,
John Kerry

Um John, you didn't convince me!!

It's Bill's Fault!!

Hillary is where she's at because Bill had affairs. That's how Chris Matthews explains Hillary Clinton's success!!

Matthews: Hillary’s succeeding because Bill ‘messed around

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe today, Chris Matthews baselessly claimed that the only reason Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) is running for President is because of her husband’s affairs:

Matthews: I think the Hillary appeal has always been about the mix of toughness and sympathy. Let’s not forget, and I’ll be brutal, the reason she’s a US Senator, the reason she’s a candidate for President, the reason she may be a front runner, is that her husband messed around. […]

That’s how she got to be a Senator from New York. We keep forgetting it. She didn’t win it on her merit, she won because everybody felt, “My God, this woman stood up under humiliation,” right? That’s what happened.

As ThinkProgress has tracked in the past, Matthews has consistently been obsessed with Clinton’s sex life.

Hillary couldn't possibly be a Senator because people actually voted for her based on merits. Hillary couldn't possibly be a Presidential candidate because she wants to or because people want her to run. Hillary most certainly couldn't possibly be a front runner or the President because people want her. It must be because Bill had affairs. Yep!! People feel sorry for her because her husband cheated. Using that logic, every person who has ever been cheated on could and would be a U.S. Senator, and a candidate for President.

This couldn't possibly be sour grapes over her win in New Hampshire, and because the polls were proven wrong when Barack Obama got his ass kicked!! It certainly sounds like it!!

Hip Hop Artists To Educate Americans If Obama Is The Democratic Candidate?

It only took a few years of being in Washington, D.C. for Barack Obama to go insane, and that's exactly what it looks like to me. According to this article, if Barack Obama is the Democratic candidate he will use hip hop artists to "educate" the American people. He says that he would use Jay-Z, Kanye West, and other hip hop artists that he likes.

Really? Obama is going to use hip hop artists to educate the American people? Educate us on what? What is Jay-Z going to teach us? Is he going to teach us how to make millions, and waste it on shit? What is Kanye West going to teach us? He has a song that is supposed to educate people on the horrors of "blood diamonds" and the diamond trade. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but I've seen pictures of Kanye wearing diamonds. Yeah, that's really educational!! His message is to not wear diamonds but it's okay for him to. If he decides to use Snoop Dogg, what is he going to teach us? Is he going to teach us how to use the "N" word by making it sound cutesy with an "izzle"? If he decides to use Diddy, what is he going to teach us? Is he going to teach us how to make suck-ass bands, and flee from night club shootings? If he decides to use 50-Cent, what's he going to teach us? Is he going to teach us how to get rich or die trying? Or, how to get shot nine times and survive? Perhaps he'd like to bring in Suge Knight to "educate" us. I'll leave that one at that. If you want to know who I'm talking about just wikipedia his name.

In the great words of Lil Jon, WHAT? WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?

Obama has lost his mind if he thinks that the American people are going to go for this shit. Hip hop artists are now educators? Am I living in America or is it as I suspect, HELL?

Everyone had this man crowned the King, and the King was knocked off his throne!! Bra-fucking-vo!!

I think it's even better that she gave John Edwards a complete and utter ass beating!! He deserved it after his comments about how he felt Hillary was done and would quit after losing in New Hampshire!! She beat your ass John!! She beat your ass by over 60,000 votes.

These men needed their asses beat last night, and they got their asses beat last night!! Bra-fucking-vo!!!!!

I also love how people are so stunned. They were shitting their pants last night, trying to figure out how the polls could have been so wrong. Tis a shame!! Tis a shame!!

Barack Obama Puts Out Racist Memo

Barack Obama is an asshole to say the very least. I've been handed yet another reason why there is no way in hell that I will vote for him, even if that means that a Republican beats his ass in the general election. I wouldn't vote for this asshole if he were the last, best, greatest hope for saving the United States. He will never get my vote, EVER!!

This story actually came out in June yet we're first hearing about it now. Why is that? Could it be because the only person who had the balls to say something about it was Bill Clinton? Could it be because Barack Obama has become the darling of the media? I don't know, and it really doesn't matter.

The point is that his campaign sent out a memo that called Hillary Clinton the Senator from Punjab. What the fuck kind of racist remark is that? Would we dare refer to Barack Obama as the Senator from ___? Hell no!! Why? Because 1) Anything that fills the blank is racist!! 2) It's ignorant!! 3) It's rude and disrespectful!! 4) It's truly classless!! 5) It shows how much of an asshole you truly are!! So why exactly was his racist, ignorant, rude, disrespectful, classless, asshole-like comment ignored until now? Only the media can answer that question. But I suspect that they were afraid to attack his racist remark out of fear of being labeled RACIST themselves!!

I especially love the obvious attack against Indian Americans. As the spokesperson for South Asians for Obama pointed out, "the main thing people have a problem with is the implication that having ties to the Indian American community, that fundraising from Indian Americans in the United States, is a problem." So, it's wrong to have ties to the Indian American community? It's wrong to get money from Indian Americans for your campaign? If that is wrong, why is it perfectly acceptable to ship his wife off to London to raise money for his campaign? I don't give a shit if that money came from Americans that live in England or not. The point is, obviously there is a double standard here and it's racist in nature to boot!!

Barack Obama is not the Great Savior that is going to save the United States. Barack Obama is an asshole. To me, he's a racist. He's no better than the thugs that are in office now.

I can't wait for the dirt to start flying!! Bring it on BITCH!! I hope that they eat him alive. He may be the media darling right now. But they'll turn on him soon enough!!

Bring it on BITCH!! BRING IT ON!!

Two Trips To The Store, And A Bumper Sticker!!

I recently found myself in several interesting situations. A week or so ago I went to a store to return a Christmas gift. As I was waiting in line, I couldn't help but overhear a loudmouthed women that was an employee at the store. She was bitching to some other employee about the "horror" of a telephone language option. Apparently she was attempting to pay a bill over the phone when she was given the option of hearing the instructions in Spanish. Imagine that!! SPANISH!!

She went on to bitch about how you can't say Merry Christmas anymore, and that's the fault of the atheists!! Yep!! That's right!! Atheists are to blame!! The other employee that she was bitching to was a complete and utter "yes man" as my brother pointed out to me!!

I was really very tempted to either ask her if she had a problem with those who spoke Spanish or any other language for that matter, and atheists!! Or, we were going to walk over by her and start speaking in other languages. I would have loved to see her reaction!! These are some Americans for you though!! God forbid that you don't conform to their idea of what it is to be an American.

The other day I was in the drive-thru at a local restaurant. I found myself behind this woman who had a bumper sticker on the back of her SUV. It said, "If you can read this, thank a teacher. Since it's in English, thank a soldier." I proceeded to yell out my window that soldiers didn't teach me English, my mother did. Unfortunately her window wasn't rolled down so she didn't hear me. But imagine my surprise and hers when I was driving home the entire time behind her and this ignorant woman lives on the same block as I do!!


Finally, yesterday afternoon I took a trip to the local Barnes and Noble. After about an hour and a half I settled on some things to buy. I purchased a travel guide on India. I collect travel guides for places around the world because they are very interesting to read. I also purchased an Arabic language book with CD's. I thought for sure that I was going to get some comment about it because some of the people that work there are rude when it comes to those. Yes, I've purchased language books before and have gotten rude comments. However, the woman who checked me out was interested in my book on India. She asked me if I was taking a trip there. When I said no, she told me about how her husband has asked her where she would go if she could go anywhere in the world. She told him that she would go to a country where there were no white people or very little because it would be a hell of a lot more interesting!!

There you have it!! Three situations, and I finally come across someone who isn't an ignorant asshole!!

For those of you who are interested to know what languages I speak, I speak Russian and English. I know a little French, Spanish, Italian, and Japanese. I'm teaching myself all of those languages. I learned some Italian by listening to Italian opera music. And now, I will also be teaching myself Arabic. After that, I plan to try Chinese, Dutch, and whatever else I want to learn!!

Unlike some people in this country, I have no problem with other languages. The more I know, the better. I don't think that people should have to speak English to communicate with me. It's not hurting me to learn their language so I can communicate with them. In fact, it's fun!!

Those Big Bad Evil Iranians!!

The Iran war drumbeat gets louder and louder by the day.

It really never ceases to amaze me what shit these people come up with. If they want to go to war with Iran, just say it already. We all know that they've been plotting this shit for a long time. They're not fooling anyone with this garbage!!

As I pointed out on another blog, if someone is intent on killing you they're not going to give you a GODDAMN HEADS UP!! They're more likely to kill you when you least suspect it!! But hey, you can't make this crazy shit up. That's right!! A mystery voice appeared over the radio. It said, "I'm coming at you. You will explode in a couple of minutes." Sure it did!! And I'm the Queen of England!!

I feel like I'm in one of those really bad Mystery Science Theater 3000 movies. No offense to Mystery Science Theater 3000, the writers, the directors, the actors, or anyone affiliated with it!! You're all great!!

Seriously though, when will this bullshit end? My guess is that the harassment and provocation, if there was any, was done by the United States and not Iran!! But hey, keep beating those drums!!

Sexism Is Alive And Well!!

Anyone who said sexism was dead was clearly a liar. At a campaign rally, Hillary Clinton was "treated" to it.

Protesters Ask Clinton to Iron Shirts

SALEM, N.H. (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign stop was interrupted Monday when two men stood in the crowd and began screaming, ``Iron my shirt!'' during one of her final appearances before the New Hampshire primary.

Clinton, a former first lady running to become the nation's first female president, laughed at the seemingly sexist protest that suggested a woman's place is doing the laundry and not running the country.

``Ah, the remnants of sexism - alive and well,'' Clinton said to applause in a school auditorium.

The two men were removed from the hall after raising a pair of signs that said, ``Iron my shirt!'' They also shouted the same slogan.

``Can we turn the lights on? It's awfully dark,'' Clinton said, cueing the lights to come and police to come forward to take the men away.

The overflow crowd burst into applause and some began shouting, ``Iron my shirt'' as the two were taken from the hall.

``As I think has been abundantly demonstrated, I am also running to break through the highest and hardest glass ceiling,'' she said.

Clinton later joked about the incident as she invited questions.

``If there's anyone left in the auditorium who wants to learn how to iron a shirt, I'll talk about that,'' she said with a smile.

Clinton placed a disappointing third place in Iowa's caucuses last week and faces a tough challenge in Tuesday's primary from Barack Obama, who leads her with just one day remaining.

Unless a "miracle" happens and every jackass like these two in this country have a forced lobotomy, there will never be a woman President of the United States.

This is the year 2008. Women can do whatever the hell they want. They can be whatever the hell they want. They don't need permission from a man. The problem with pigs like these two is that they're afraid of a powerful woman. They're afraid that she will kick their asses in more ways than one!! They don't like smart, educated, tough women because that means that they are no longer in control!! Tough shit!!

Voting For Obama? I'm Not!!

Many people have decided that they will vote for Barack Obama if he is the Democratic candidate for President. I'm not one of them. In fact, I'm not voting for anyone!! I'm not voting for anyone because the only person that is worthy of my vote will never be the nominee.

I don't get the fascination with Barack Obama. I don't know anything about him or what he stands for. He talks a good game. But that's all it is!! TALK!! If you look at his voting record, he has not voted 115 times. You can check that out at Project Vote Smart. With Chris Dodd out of the race, Obama has the worst record of the Democratic candidates for not voting. Why is that? Did he not bother to show up for the vote? Or was it that he didn't want to be on record as having voted for or against something? He was elected as a Senator. He was not elected as President. His job is to show up and vote. It is not to run around the country long before he is running for President, and ignore his duties as a Senator.

He says he's going to do this or that. Yet, he doesn't tell you how he's going to do it. He talks about CHANGE, CHANGE, CHANGE!! He would be a different person, but he would do the same old shit!! He's not a change!!

In 2004 we were told that we had to hold our noses and vote for Kerry so that Bush wouldn't get elected. I'm not holding my nose again. I'm not voting for a candidate that I don't believe in simply to keep a Republican out of office. I'm not going to do it, and those who want to tell me that I have to might as well keep their mouths shut because you're not going to convince me!!

Mental Illness Is No Laughing Matter

Mental illness is no laughing matter. Nor is it material for a railroading on NATIONAL TELEVISION!! But that's exactly what Dr. Phil is attempting to do to Britney Spears.

Yes, I know what everyone is going to say. Who cares!! Up until the stunt that Dr. Phil reportedly pulled, I was in the "who cares" camp. To be honest, I could've cared less if Britney Spears had a nervous breakdown, was on drugs, using alcohol, or whatever the case was when she was taken to the hospital last Thursday night. But when I read the shit that Dr. Phil tried to pull and is trying to pull, I felt the need to blog!!

First of all, she hasn't been diagnosed!! From the looks of it, I would agree with those out there that have said she's Bipolar. But, the fact remains that she HASN'T BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH ANYTHING!!

Second of all, Dr. Phil had no business walking into the hospital and trying to have an "intervention" with Britney. Sure, her dad supposedly called him and asked him to come. But, Britney (the patient) didn't!! She didn't even know he was coming. If Dr. Phil knew anything about mental illness he would realize that you don't corner the person. You don't attempt to railroad them into anything. The hospital should be held accountable for allowing this jackass into the hospital in the first place. Also, he should have his medical license revoked!!

Clearly there is something wrong with her. But it is obvious that she's not going to accept any help right now. It's even more obvious that she's not going to accept help from an ass like Dr. Phil. Who can blame her? I can't!! If I had a mental health problem, the last person I would seek help from is a television talk show host. Forgive me if I'd rather get help from a doctor in a hospital!! At least I'd know that the help I was receiving wasn't being done for the cameras, the television ratings, and the MONEY!!

As I said earlier, mental illness is no laughing matter. As much as I could care less about Britney Spears, she needs help. She doesn't need a television quack attempting to railroad her on national television. She needs an intervention in the form of medical treatment in a hospital by a REAL doctor.

For more information on Bipolar Disorder and other mental health issues, check out the National Institute Of Mental Health website. You may learn something!!

Oh Please Bitch!!

This woman needs to spare us the fake tears!!

Mom apologizes for Hannah Montana essay

GARLAND, Texas - A woman apologized Friday for a "bad decision" in helping her 6-year-old daughter win tickets to a Hannah Montana concert with an essay that falsely claimed the girl's father died in Iraq.

Priscilla Ceballos said she hadn't intended to mislead the contest sponsor but got caught up in helping her daughter "realize her dream of seeing Hannah Montana."

"Instead I brought so much negative attention to my family," Ceballos said, reading a statement on NBC's "Today" show. "Please accept my heartfelt apology and please do not punish my child for my mistake."

Ceballos apologized specifically to the military and military families for falsely claiming the girl's father died in a roadside bombing in Iraq.

"I just wanted to help my daughter write a compelling story," she said. "There is no more compelling story than the struggle and sacrifices of our military and their families."

Officials with Chicago-based chain Club Libby Lu surprised the girl with the tickets and a makeover Dec. 28 at a store in a suburban Dallas mall. Club Libby Lu sells clothes, accessories and games for young girls.

The essay won her the grand prize: airfare for four to Albany, N.Y., and four tickets to the sold-out Hannah Montana concert Jan. 9. The opening line in the essay was: "My daddy died this year in Iraq."

Ceballos admitted later in the day to store officials that the essay and the military information she provided about her daughter's father were untrue.

Club Libby Lu withdrew the prize the next day and awarded it to another unnamed contestant.

"I meant no disrespect," Ceballos said on the "Today" show. "I just made a bad decision which I sincerely regret."

Oh please BITCH!! This woman meant all the disrespect in the world!! I guarantee you that if she hadn't been confronted by a reporter who investigated the essay claim, she would have never owned up to the fact that she lied and got her child to lie. The only reason she appeared on the Today show was because so many people were pissed off about what she did. Her "apology" is not even remotely sincere, especially given the fact that after she was exposed she said that they did whatever was necessary to win.

This wasn't a "bad decision". It's called FRAUD lady!! The reality of the situation is that people aren't pissed at the child. They are pissed at the mother. If we're supposed to believe that the child wrote this essay, it is obvious that this child was manipulated. I don't know of any child who would say that their parent was dead, even for a damn concert ticket. I still stand my belief that this mother wrote the essay, and had her daughter take credit for it.

On a side note, does this woman seriously think that her child should still be given the prize? It certainly sounds like it, given her comment about not punishing her child for her bad decision. Is she delusional? There is no way in hell that child is going to get tickets, especially after the rightful uproar over this.
