But I cant in good conscience sit around and let random people spout absolute nonsense. Im really involved in this campaign. So passionately involved that I cant even begin to wrap my head around all the issues, but I stand by my candidate and must respect anyone who stands by theirs...
BUT IF I HEAR ONE MORE PERSON SAY THAT "BARACK IS GOING TO RAISE YOUR TAXES". I might scream. I overheard a man on the bus telling the passenger sitting next to hime..."Barack is a con man!!" (Because con men ALWAYS get elected as president of the Harvard Law Review and opt to turn down multi-million dollar job offers to pound the pavement and work on community service - which is apparently a joke to Repubs)
Here it is - PRINT IT OUT -
and when you hear someone spouting off complete LIES about Barack rasing taxes - Hand them this leaflet and let them move on to the issues they really care about - crying "Sexisim" on the "liberal media", whining about journalists DOING THEIR JOB to get information on an unknown candidate, COMPLETELY AVOIDING REAL ISSUES and of course, talking about why Sarah Palin is perfectly acceptable to run our country because "SHE REALLY INVIGORATES THE BASE!" Are these qualifications for potentially running the worlds largest nuclear arsenal? From a person who recently admitted she "Really hadnt thought much about Iraq" ???
While we're on the subject, I think the press has really been unfair on Sarah Palin. Sure underaged pregnancies happen. They happen in all families, and all family are well within their right to deal with those situations however they see fit. But its unfair that no one has pointed out the biggest, saddest aspect of the situation:
WHY, WHY, WHY did this woman think that the American public feel so much more at ease by knowing that the babies father (A self-proclaimed "F**king redneck") was going to marry her daughter. SHES SEVENTEEN FRICKING YEARS OLD!!!!
What I would have liked to hear was, "Our daughter Bristol, is currently pregnant. While we are happy that the father wants to be involved in the pregancy and the babies life, our focus is our daughter, and assuring that the choices she continues to make are going to provide her with the best opportunities for her future. Our family will work together to help her raise this child with the help of its father, as we see Bristol through high school, and should she wish to pursue it, a college education. We want to see that she takes advantage of all the opportunities given to young women, and, when she feels she has achieved everything she could possibly want to achieve, we would be thrilled if she would want to take the plunge and become Mrs. F**king Redneck."
THATS WHAT I WANT TO HEAR. Dont preach to me about the "Glass Ceiling" and in the SAME BREATH yank the womens movement by the ponytail back to the 1950's. Many young women dont have the opportunities that Bristol Palin has - shame on her family for not ONCE mentioning an education.
Im ok with people getting married young. They did it alot in the past and it still happens today. But young is NINETEEN, TWENTY!!! Come on people!! Seventeen? She is just a child!
Our country doesnt think she's old enough to choose the leader for the next four years, but she's well within her rights to make a LIFETIME commitment like that?
Oh geesh.....Talk me down KJ....I know you want to!!
Really, Im really sorry about this outburst....I know many of you read this blog NOT to hear my political views, but this blog is pointless if I cant every once in a while vent about something I feel so passionately about.
Ill try to keep my mouth shut in the future. Really. I just gotta get it out every once in a while. I even mentioned to John just going and getting hypnosis to NOT think about the election for the next few months.
