Even if you just marginally follow politics, you have probably heard of Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Nevada, Sharron Angle. The crazy-bitch running against Majority leader, Harry Reid.
For those that are oblivious to what is happening in the world, she is the women who has advocated multiple times that people should resort to “Second Amendment remedies” if things don’t turn out how they want it to. Like you know, if she doesn’t get elected.
Here is a Sharron Angle quote of the first time she mentioned the use of these types of remedies…
You know, our Founding Fathers, they put that Second Amendment in there for a good reason and that was for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. And in fact Thomas Jefferson said it’s good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years.
I hope that’s not where we’re going, but, you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying my goodness what can we do to turn this country around? I’ll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out. -Sharron Angle
Did she just propose to shoot Harry Reid? Oh, I’m sorry.. she said “take Harry Reid out”, I’m sure she just meant out of office… right. That is strange to me, considering the context she was speaking. Seems to me this was just clever rhetoric, making her statement a bit more subtle and a little less incriminating.
Sharron Angle is one of the Tea DoucheBaggers favorite candidates running for office. Which, in my opinion, is prime evidence for how fucking crazy the Tea Party folk are (or at least most of them). Yes, I am aware that some of you Tea Baggers are just disgruntled unemployed members of society venting your anger at our current economical downturn, and are not necessarily out of your minds, just going through some phase (like emo-goth teenagers). But I think it is safe to say, most of the tea baggers are out of their fucking minds.
If this situation isn’t as shocking to you as it is to me, then you are either ignorant or you aren’t seeing this for what it really is. This is a crazy-bitch advocating violence if things don’t go the way the minority wants it to go. AND SHE IS A VIABLE CANDIDATE FOR PUBLIC OFFICE. I don’t know what exactly disqualifies someone from running, but this seems like it should be on the list. What is ironic is that Tea Party members say things like ‘we want our country back’ and ‘we’re trying to protect the constitution & the republic’, etc. etc. Yet, supporting a candidate who proposes shooting people, er I mean using “second amendment remedies” when and if a genuine, honest election does not go the way you hoped, does not seem very constitutional to me. In fact, I’m pretty sure that it is destructive to our ol’ U.S. Constitutional Republic.
What is scary is that it is possible that this women will be elected as a United States Senator; if not from fear, from the indifference of those that choose to smoke pot and watch cartoons instead of staying informed while the crazy Teabaggers gain power. We’d like to think that the Tea Party movement is just some silly nonsensical group. But….
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
For those that dislike politics: Yeah, I understand. Politics can get really frustrating and sometimes even bland, but you live in a democratic republic. You are required to pay attention to what goes on; you are apart of this. In fact, it is downright irresponsible if you don’t. When the masses don’t give a genuine shit and refuse to put in some effort to get involved with politics, people like Sharron Angle get into office.
[Quote] “I’m ashamed of what happened in the White House yesterday,” said Rep. Joe Barton (R-Tex.) during a hearing on Thursday morning with BP’s CEO Tony Hayward.” I think it is a tragedy in the first proportion that a private corporation can be subjected to what I would characterize as a shakedown — in this case a $20 billion shakedown — with the attorney general of the United States, who is legitimately conducting a criminal investigation and has every right to do so to protect the American people, participating in what amounts to a $20 billion slush fund that’s unprecedented in our nation’s history, which has no legal standing, which I think sets a terrible precedent for our nation’s future.”
“I’m only speaking for myself. I’m not speaking for anyone else, but I apologize,” Barton added. “I do not want to live in a county where anytime a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong, [it is] subject to some sort of political pressure that, again, in my words, amounts to a shakedown.” [Unquote]
As I’m sure you’ve heard; Opponents of Barack Obama, News Pundits and everyone in between have been criticizing the President because he is not showing enough emotion towards the Gulf Oil Spill situation. Even comparing Obama to Mr. Spock.
First of all, as a Star Trek fan, comparing Obama to Mr. Spock (for me) sounds like one hell of a compliment. Sure, he had some trouble with emotions… but he was exceptionally awesome at everything else he did; and was pretty much the best character on the show.
But really, all this fuss over President Obama not being on his knees yelling towards the heavens, “NOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!” is ridiculous. I know you people are scared, horrified and vastly upset over this Oil Spill, but what is showing more emotion going to do? How is it going to help anything? Will it plug up the hole? No, the only thing it might do is plug up your fucking mouths. Actually, probably not; because once he shows emotion, critics will say, “Oh, he’s angry. Wow. But what is he doing about it?”. There is no pleasing you monkeys.
Personally, I like having a President who is capable of distancing himself from his emotions, not letting them get the better of him, while he does his job as a fucking President, clear headed and appropriately.
We didn’t elect him to cry and make a hissy-fit every time a natural or man-made disaster happens. We elected him to run the country and deal with those disasters.
This whole controversy is just ridiculous. Get a grip people.
Hmmmm.. Although, I do see somewhat of a resemblance…
Along with television commercials like the one I showed you in my last post, BP is also purchasing paid search links on search engines like Google to further help protect its polluted public image.
If you search for something like “Oil spill” or “Gulf Oil Spill” on any given search engine, you will see an AD by BP at the top of the list under those “Sponsored” search results, linked to a favorable webpage.
We shall see how well this marketing campaign will improve BP’s image two months from now when the gulf is transformed into an oily spew of death and the Gulf states are covered with oil. My moneys on, not so much.
Earlier this morning I turned on the television and saw this commercial.
Later I find out that BP has spent millions of dollars on an advertising campaign to protect its public image.
You know what Tony Hayward. Fuck you, and your bloody image. No matter how much money you spend on corny, disingenuous commercials, it will not help your image.
You know what would be a better approach to ‘protecting your image’? All that money you are wasting on advertising, use it instead for the relief effort. Putting a genuine effort (and some of your billions in profits) into fixing your mess is your best bet to get some of your pathetic excuse of a life back.
I have once again transferred to another blogging platform. I went from a self-hosted wordpress.org platform, to Google’s blogspot, and now to wordpress.com. Just so my readers know (the ones I haven’t lost from my excessive blog transformations), I will not be transferring again to any other platforms; I am here to stay.
So why the transfer from blogspot to wordpress?
Not that anything is wrong with blogspot ( in my opinion), but for some reason there is a stigma attached to using blogspot in the blogger world. I myself do not find anything particularly distasteful about blogspot. In fact, I find some features of blogspot to be more pleasing than wordpress. Particularly, the freedom of design.
Today as I searched through wordpress’s limited themes available for the free-hosted users, I almost vomited from the site of a few of them. No, seriously. I actually felt nauseous at the unbelievably ugly site of some of these themes. Of course, I know the reason why wordpress chooses to make only the most hideous themes available. WordPress is trying to encourage folks to buy the custom CSS option or go with a self-hosted platform.
While this is a brilliant marketing tactic, I feel a bit of spite towards them because of it. I was about to say, “fuck you, wordpress. I’m using blogspot” but, as you can see, I submitted. Why? Because unlike the stigma that is attached to blogspot in the blogosphere, wordpress on the other hand has a reputation of being a professional blogging platform. For the real bloggers.
And I am a professional, god damnit.
Whether this is ultimately true or not of wordpress, I am a professional blogger of awesome damnit; and I shall use the platform that will best convey this. And I feel my content will transcend the ugliness of whatever theme out of the 94 available I may be using at any given time anyway. Fortunately, wordpress occasionally comes out with new themes. So I have that to look forward to. I just hope they will show some mercy and provide some pretty ones.
At the moment I am using a theme called Regulus. It is one of the few not-so-bad ones I found. And this particular one allows me to customize the header, so that is a plus. However, I cannot change the colors of the layout (other than the pukish ones available). So as of now I am using the ‘plain white’ option, which makes it bearable.
Well, anyway. There it is. I’m a wordpress blogger now. I hope I will not come to regret this decision…
