I don't know if it's because we have a black president but all the racists feel like they can justifiable enough to march out on the main street and raise hell. It's completely chaotic. The ongoing Arizona immigration shenanigans are already horrible, at least the rest of the country are closely monitoring it, cities and states are starting to sever their relationship with Arizona. Activists are urging people to boycott Arizona based company for added pressure. Surprisingly Arizona Ice Tea is not from Arizona but New York, while U-Haul, Best Western and Stone Cold Creamery are, so draw your own conclusions. It's not like I patronize any of these establishments right now. At least I don't plan on it.
Arizona Governess Jan Brewer who signed the Neo-Nazi inspired, extremely discriminatory bill into law palled up with Sarah Palin and wrote this on her FaceBook page: "Had such a great time with Sarah Palin last night that we went to the Diamondbacks game today before she left town. It was great talking to her about my efforts here in Arizona of securing our borders, fighting Obama Care and preserving our 2nd Amendment rights." Apparently for to be a top Republican these days, you have to perform ridiculous acts to appease to the so-called "American values". Here's how another chum does it:
Yup, eliminate driving tests in foreign languages. Make everyone else learn English! Republican candidate for the governor of Alabama Tim James claimed that eliminating the test would save the State of Alabama money. "Maybe it's the businessman in me, but it'll save money and it makes sense, does it to you?" It makes no sense to me, of course. You don't have to know English to understand most signs, and it turns out billions in federal transportation funding are contingent on multi-lingual driver's license tests, so by eliminating these tests Alabama will be giving up these fundings. Common sense? Are we going to boycott Alabama if this bozo gets elected?
Another bozo comes from Iowa Republican governor candidate Pat Bertroche who suggested "I can microchip my dog so I can find it. Why can't I microchip an illegal?" First, comparing illegals to dogs or pests is insulting beyond belief and second, if you can round up the illegals and plant a chip in them, why can't you deport them? Some bloggers are saying that the GOP are committing demographic suicide, but I think it's not that simple. There are a lot of crazies/uneducated folks out there that will agree with this sentiments or vote Republicans no matter what. It's scary, George W. Bush was a 2-term president, let that be a lesson.
Often, I'm glad that I'm not a woman. I too will be upset if I have to bleed out of my hoo-haa every month and suffer pain, it's an innate inequality, a monthly punch in the stomach from nature or God depends on how you see things. To add insult to injury, the state of Oklahoma just passed a law requiring doctors to perform a vaginal-probe ultrasound for pregnant woman who wants an abortion. The purpose is to show them the fetus as an attempt to coerce the person out of their decision to get an abortion. Classy. I doubt that it's an easy decision for anybody and that's before considering extreme cases like rape or incest victims. They will ALL be force to get probed and persuaded out of an abortion.
Fox News is now the number one cable news channel for the 100th month and the top 5 iPhone free app. Louisiana's failure to include gay adoption to its adoption law. An executive from Goldman Sachs trying to argue something that is written point blank on paper and this crazy chick from a Texas state-run University giving an highly inappropriate bizarre religious prayer/speech where she repents for her peers for worshiping the intellectual mind on her graduation day, crying and then go into a seizure. Seriously, doesn't the University approve the speech before they let her give it? Isn't there any more suitable or stable candidates? Once again, I fear for the educational system in Texas. All this have me pretty dismayed of the state of this country. Maybe just because I'm a gaysian and feel the discrimination from both side but it's hard to feel great with chaos like these.
