I refuse to accept Michelle Bachmann as part of the human race - she is a parasite and seems to be a badly educated one at that.

I can accept that some people are uneducated, I refuse to accept blind deliberate ignorance and hatred  as such that falls out of this beings mouth with great regularity.


I shun you, I shun you, I shun you.

The rest of the world will continue to rotate.

I've been a little ashamed and appalled at some of the commentary that folks have posted in social sites, but more so with comments that I heard in classes today.

As a Funeral Services student, one of the first things we learned and continue to learn is respect for the dead. It is not our place to 'do' unethical things to a body of someone who we considered bad. That's not our place and I find it horrendously offensive.

Let me be clear and frank - my husband served, my brother in law served, my uncles served, my grandfather served, my son in law serves today, many friends who I love and respect all serve in the military. I am not upset with the military - they did their job.

What I am upset with are those who choose to criticize the military for taking out Osama bin Ladin, some feel cheated that he wasn't brought into to American and placed in prison where he could be abused and tortured. Really people? Really!??!!!!?!? Others bitch about the fact he was quickly buried at sea, after all why should he get a fast burial?

Again I say, Really?!?!!?

I can give you several reasons why:

  1. It keeps his grave site from becoming a place to gather, to make him a martyr.
  2. He was Islamic - it is required that they be buried within two days of death.
  3. Who actually thinks bringing the body of this man to America would be a good idea? It would just be another reason to attack this nation.
We aren't showing any preference by allowing his burial according to Islamic custom, instead we are showing that we can be a compassionate and kind. It costs us nothing but could gain us much.

As for the naysayers who claim that he's not really dead, and for those doofuses at Fox News who reported "Obama" bin Ladin dead this morning - please stop being so stupid and insulting and polluting the intelligence of the rest of us. Buy a clue and become real journalists.

In the real of other things that piss me off - I apologize in advance if you are offended by my post, I am not doing it o offend, but rather to vent and get it out of my system.

I am not "Pro-Life" I never have been. Our world is heavily overpopulated with unwanted and disposable children and I find that horribly offensive. Rather than trying to restrict my access to safe and sane birth control and adequate health care, why don't you do something for these children?  Is it because they are of mixed heritages? Poor, born disadvantaged? Not white enough for you?

What is the governments obsession with looking into our bedrooms?

I am Pro Choice and I am not ashamed of my beliefs - I got a phone call this afternoon from a Pro-Life Advocate asking me for money. I wasn't rude but I was clear that I would not give them money nor did I wish to be contacted by them again.

I have no idea of how they got my name and number, but it offends me... a lot.  Just in case you missed that.
Enough ranting for the moment.

I hope you had a good day and tomorrow will be better.

If you are offended that I make fun of your particular beliefs feel free to defriend me and don't let the internet door hit where you sit.

I believe in social change and equality.  I believe that the vast majority of people who pay lip service to Sarah Palin and the Tea Party are knuckle dragging neanderthals that shouldn't be allowed to breed without an IQ test.

I believe that there are true Christians out there, but they are few and far inbetween and that if Jesus were to appear today he would be thrown into jail for being a terrorist.

I believe that denying someone the right to love another person, regardless of their gender is a crime against humanity.

I believe that denying someone the right to worship as they choose is another crime against humanity.

I believe that if we do not make changes to our society and our world that we are doomed as a species and we deserve it for being stupid idiots who cannot learn.

This is not a road, this is a river in Louisiana that is covered with dead fish and other sea creatures.

I understand if you want to skip this -- but I felt this was a very well written commentary on the viewing of privilege.
