Wish Them Well

Friendship is a funny thing. Some are strong,  some go beyond certain bonds and some fail. I value the friendships I've forged throughout my lifetime.  Some have endured since childhood,  some are new, some are real life, some are contained to a virtual world. But there are times when one fails and you have to walk away, if only for the sake of your own sanity. Sometimes it needs to be done. Just say goodbye in your own way and move on. This is probably more than I am going to say on this topic,  but it's something that has been plagued my thoughts.  "All that you can do is wish them well..."

Facebook Rant 07/10/2014 regarding Immigrant Children Crisis.

[Begin Rant] I don't give two fucks if you're a racist, Xenophobe or just a complete asshole combination of the two. We have a humanitarian crisis involving children traveling hundred and thousand of miles, on their own, to this country. The government is doing it's best to get it under control, but the fucking Republicans are not doing SHIT!!!! Yes, these children should be sent back to their home countries, but in a safe and humane way. These ignorant pig-fuckers in Murrieta, CA, aren't helping. By law, which was signed by George W. Bush ( William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008), the women and children are supposed to be turned over to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
I don't give a fuck what you might say, or throw at me with your Jingoistic and Xenophobic bullshit. These are CHILDREN, and as such, they should be treated with compassion - but many of you don't care. You lack empathy. This is not just our problem. It's everyone's problem. So pull your heads out of your goddamned asses!!! You don't like Hispanics, not my problem. You don't like Immigrants, not my problem. We are all children or grandchildren of immigrants - whether documented or not.
As far as Senator Marco Rubio is concerned, he can fuck right off, too. He doesn't want to help, either. I should tell him to repeal the Wet foot/dry foot rules concerning his Cuban brethren and deport every fucking one of them - let's see how fast he helps these kids!!!
Remember, these are CHILDREN. If you have no empathy for them, you're not worth my time or energy. [End rant].

Quick note about the Media to Republicans

Dear Republicans/TeaFuckers/Conservatives: 

Next time you say "Don't trust the main (lame) stream media", here's some food for thought: Fox News is broadcast into millions of home and watched by millions of homebound senior citizens and stupid people (like yourselves)..... Yeah, Fox is part of the mainstream. WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!

Filibuster this, Senate Republicans... Rant 05/06/2014

[Begin Rant] The Republicans in the Senate aren't making a stand against anything with they way they are voting. They aren't voting on any bills, they are voting on whether or not to debate on the bill. COWARDS!!! The whole lot of them. They are afraid to go on record as to why they oppose the legislation at hand. Why do they constantly filibuster bills to help the people in this nation. No debate on raising the Minimum Wage. No debate on Unemployment Insurance. No debate on Climate Change. No debate on moderate gun laws. Again, COWARDS!!! They don't want the people in their states to know what they really think of them. They don't give two shits about he people in their states. They only care about the slimy cumstains who line their goddamned pockets - you know, the Kochs, the Adelsons, the DeVos'. They want us to die, to live in a dirty environment, to be ruled by their Oligarch overlords, begging for a pittance to buy gas, food, and the other necessities to survive. This is a big election year and if you're voting for one of these motherfuckers, you deserve everything they take away from you. This election is just as important as any presidential election. Get out there and vote like your life depended on it. They will stop at nothing to STEAL your Social Security trust fund, your Medicare trust fund and hand them over to private entities and Wall Street. Keep those fucking dirty hands off your money you worked and slaved for all these years. And to the younger voters - this is about you, too!!! Once you move out of mommy and daddy's basement into your own home, they might have to move into yours. VOTE!!!! [End Rant]

"General Welfare" Rant 04/27/2014

[Begin Rant] The words "General Welfare" appear at least twice in the US Constitution, yet the ignorant, greedy, Constitution-loving cumstain Republicans and Libertarians kind of overlook them, expecting the survival of the fittest mentality (ironic taking an Ayn Randian stance over the Jesus way, while they claim to be "god fearing" ignoramuses).
The "Preamble": "We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, =====> promote the general welfare <=====, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Article I, Section 8, Clause 1: "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and ====> general welfare <==== of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;"
They don't give a shit about the common man. It's all for the rich and the newly formed persons, (no thanks to a corporate owned SCOTUS), Corporations. If you're a greedy scum sucking Republican or Libertarian who doesn't care about your fellow American, or if they starve, or the old lady down the street has to live on cat food, or a child has to go hungry before or at school, this I say to you: Go Fuck Yourself!!! You're not American, you're a selfish piece of shit!!! That is all!!! [End Rant]

Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired [Facebook Rant 02/16/2014]

Begin Rant] "Henry Drummond: As long as the prerequisite for that shining paradise is ignorance, bigotry and hate, I say the hell with it."

I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired of it all. I don't understand why the so-called religious are so up in arms over same sex marriage. They choose one line in Leviticus for their hatred and bigotry, yet they ignore the other laws in that part of the "good book". What is is about one verse in Leviticus that turns these people in to fucking lunatics?? There are other lines in that book that are ignored and ignored often. The Jesus said “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. (NIV, Matthew 5:17–18)," so wouldn't all the laws be applicable to all??? So until these fucking delusional folk give up the pork, stop getting tattoos, cutting their hair, etc., they will always be fucking hypocritical shitstains in my eye.

Now, onto science. When the bible was written by illiterate goat herders in the Middle Eastern desert, they still thought the world was flat, and the sun revolved around the earth. There are those who feel this "book" is historical fact and the earth is 6-10,000 years old. If the "story" of creation is indeed "fact", it's missing a whole lot of information. The biggest question is this, and no one can give a straight answer for it (which convinces me it's all BULLSHIT: "God" created Adam and Eve. They had two sons. One son killed the other. Where did the one still alive get his wife??? Sorry, but I will side with science. Then this "god" floods the earth and some sheep herder is ordered to build an ark and put two of every kind on it, but there's no way he walked to seven continents to collect animals. More BULLSHIT and fairytales. 

Religion has been the reason for most wars because no one can decide whose god is better. I'm not here to tell you to stop believing in whatever you believe, but when your beliefs infringe upon the lives of others or impede progress in the sciences, I will stand up and shout. My rights are not "god given", but rather "Constitutuionally given". There is a reason god is not mentioned in out most sacred text - our founders knew the dangers of mixing religion and state. Just because your god forbids you to do something, doesn't mean those rules are meant for everyone. When you push your beliefs on others, you deserve to be pushed back on it. You have zealots like Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee pushing their beliefs on others just because they don't like gay marriage, states trying to push bullshit theories like "Intelligent Design" (which is a pretty sounding name for Creationism), and crackpots like David Barton trying to rewrite history in some far out way. This country is a melting pot of races, nationalities, religions and ideas - many don't see eye to eye, but that is what makes this country so unique. 

I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired. I still have the fight left in me, I won't back down, and I will stand up to any and all bullshit I see. You're free to believe what you believe in, and I am free to believe in what I believe - but in this country I am free to call it out. 

♫Quick to judge,
Quick to anger,
Slow to understand

Ignorance and prejudice
And fear
Walk hand in hand.♫ [End Rant]

Rant to #GOP voters. Facebook rant for 02/09/2014

[Begin Rant] Don't kid yourselves. The Republican Party doesn't give two shits about you. If you don't make a million dollars a year, you're just a pawn for their re-election. They cut back on funding for the sciences (National Institutes of Health) that help people to preserve tax cuts for Big Oil & Gas, They cut back on funding for the FDA which protects our food supply, they cut back on the EPA which protects our environment (see West Virginia) - all the while feeding the massive Military Industrial Complex (that Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us about).

If you're not a fetus, they don't care about you - you can drop dead once you pop out of the womb as long as it doesn't affect them having to defend you or fund you in anyway - unless your fucking birth certificate is a goddamned corporate charter. Wake the fuck up people. The GOP has done absolutely nothing to advance this country in the last 40 years - they are holding us back. Fuck the billionaires like the Koch Brothers. Fuck the silver spooned trust fund babies like Paris Hilton. It's time they paid more in taxes to advance this country. Repeal all the tax cuts that started with Rotting Ronald Reagan, reduce the money feeding the military (it won't hurt them - we have the biggest military in the world), fix our crumbling infrastructure, etc.

So, if you're one of those "single issue" voters, I feel sorry for you - you're just a fucking pawn in the GOP's game. They don't like people of color (as much as they claim they don't), they don't like gay people (because the bible tells them so), they don't like the immigrant (because they will vote against them should they become citizens), they don't like the poor (they think they get everything they are trying to give to their rich benefactors). Wake the fuck up!!! You're voting against your own interests!!! [End Rant]
