I just had to post this picture because it made me laugh so hard. It’s great.

I have to admit that I was not the one clever enough to come up with this, but I thought it was funny enough to share with the handful of you who stumble across my blog:

So let’s see here.. Both are white. Both have been in charge of large, cold parts of Earth. Both are hardliners when it comes to their core issues. Both have fired subordinates for lack of loyalty… I think you could come up with more if you dug a little deeper. Can it be a coincidence?

Funny. One of the responses read, “You forgot: both can see Russia from their house.” [sic]

Oh snap!

My friend Mikey sent me this video and there are just a few things I’d like to say about it…

The first man who speaks says he is “scared” of an Obama presidency. Oh really? Take a look at the last 8 years and tell me that Barack Obama is just going to make this country worse. Under Bush, our surplus has diminished and the country is now in debt and suffering a tremendous recession. During the last 8 years, we’ve started a “War on Terror” and pushed the Patriot Act. The United States went to war in Iraq against non-existent enemies – the War on Terror is not a war against a nation or a particular individual but a war against acts and ideals that will carry on and never end. America cannot stop it entirely so the war shall never be won. Hundreds of thousands of lives were carelessly lost under the Bush presidency. Hundreds of thousands of jobs were carelessly lost under the same administration. The man in the video says he does not want to raise his children in a country where it is presided by a man who associates himself with domestic terrorists. Does this guy really know who Bill Ayers is? I’ve said before that Ayers has done some very unpleasant things but has also made some good contributions to society – especially to educational reform. Afraid of an Obama presidency? Give me a fucking break.

Finally, there is the ignorant witch of a woman who calls Obama an Arab. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, racism still exists and is very much alive in one of the most diverse countries in the world. This may sound extreme, but given her clear bigotry, ignorance, and lack of an education of any kind, voting rights should be reconsidered. Those 18 or older who have received a formal education or are in the process of doing so should be allowed to vote. Otherwise, a moderate aptitude test should be passed in order to make it into the booths. A stupid idea, you say? Well, if you’ve never taken a math class in your life, there is no goddamn way in hell I would ever make you a NASA engineer. So, if you’re ignorant, a bigot and a racist, why should you be allowed to select the President of the United States of America?

I have to applaud McCain for standing in defense of Obama. It shows a lot of character on his part and it’s easy to see the disappointment in his demeanor when he addresses the two fools featured in the aforementioned video.

It seemed, to me anyway, that Barack Obama hadn’t spent as much time attacking McCain as McCain did Obama. Well, now that election day is drawing near and the McCain train isn’t letting up, Obama’s party has decided to do some smearing of their own. Finally! Over the weekend, Sarah Palin (the uneducated, hockey-mom, creationist that she is) accused Barack Obama of being associated with terrorists. She wasn’t referring to Osama Bin Laden, however, and instead talked about Obama’s history with Bill Ayers. Clever way to use the word “terrorist,” bitch. Sure, Ayers was a violent activist in the past, but he now holds the title “Distinguished Professor” at the University of Chicago and has since done a hell of a lot for educational reform.

The problem is your run-of-the-mill, ignorant, corn-fed Americans who are rootin’ for Palin and McCain (yes, I purposely named them in that order) believe all this garbage and fail to do research. So, Palin can muck around and hide behind that condescending smile while ignorant men of the States can think of nothing else but to defile her in ways unknown to most but those in protective custody and Catholic priests. This is how religious zealots are ruining the country: Corrupt and “religious” bureaucrats appeal to the religious fanatics (many of whom believe dinosaurs co-existed with man, the earth is 5,000 years old, and that ghosts and witches exist) and their personal beliefs find their way into our legislature.

Anyway, Barack has finally struck with accusations that connect McCain with a financial scandal during the 1980’s. McCain was part of the Keating Five, which was a group of 5 senators involved in the Charles Keating securities fraud. Even McCain has admitted that it was the “worst mistake of my life.”

Given the state of the economy and the massive recession the country is facing, Obama certainly struck while the iron was hot. This attack against McCain very loosely ties him with the people and the institutions responsible for our current financial crisis. Seriously, you know the nation is headed for pure, unadulterated shit if this decrepit old man and Puritan running mate make it into office.
