Okay... Someone asked my I no longer write on romantic relationships. Those posts did seem to get a lot of attention. I feel my not being in a relationship (a conscious choice), kinda makes it funny for me to write on relationships. Kinda/ sorta like telling people how to raise children though you have never raised one yourself. LOL! Actually, I don’t think not having children or not being in a relationship excludes a person from sharing their experiences/ knowledge. I've had enough experiences on the relationship tip! *grin* After all, a doctor can treat cancer though he's never had it... right?

“Intolerance of ambiguity is the mark of an authoritarian personality.”
-- Theodore W. Adorno (1903–1969)
Today I was going to post something on relationships, but last night, after a long, challenging day at work, I walked in my apartment and was treated to the following demonstration of ignorance compounded by arrogance:
I’m almost speechless.
I mean, do people in the country vote for scum like this? And if they do, what does that say about the people in this country? Fortunately, this dry stupid cunt is fast becoming an extinct species of the right. One benefit of the current financial crisis is that it fractured the tenuously cobbled together right. Once a formidable coalition of right-wing libertarians and far-right religious fundamentalists, the right has been exposed for what is: a pox o our society.
For those that haven’t been paying attention, a Hate Crimes bill was passed yesterday. Much of the propaganda surrounding this bill was centered on the myth that the bill would be used to crack down on religious freedom. This is patently false, though it’s been reported as fact on certain media outlets. In fact, the bill has provisions specifically design to stop this kind of censorship. In that way, the American Taliban, the Christian Fundamentalists, will still be allowed to preach hate and intolerance from the relative safety of their churches.
I would make jokes about the neocons, but how do you caricature a caricature? I mean, they make assses out of themselves. But this woman saying what she said, a bald-faced lie, this is a new low. Consider also that Matthew Shepard’s mother was in the audience listening to this poor excuse of a human being.
Just so that you know: Matthew Shepard was a young man who horribly tortured by a group of homophobes and left to die to exposure on a face. They cracked his skull, beat him, tortured him, and who knows what else to him. And why? The only reason, as admitted by at least one of the baboons, was because he had the gall to be gay...
I am ashamed and embarrassed to live in a country in which people vote for bigots like this. I am ashamed to live in a country where many people think like she does.
May your Christian God have the mercy you obviously don’t have on your pitiful souls...
