When I manage to get out amongst friends and non-familiars, I usually end up in a political debate at some time or another. The thoughts going through my pea-size brain keep returning to "how can some people be so stupid?" The disagreements typically begin with the other party spouting off a Hannity, Ingraham or Beck comment - verbatim, as if that is the solemn truth.
No matter, that I pose the question, "have you listened to any other views in this area?" The response is usually "You don't know what you are talking about!" Depending on my mood at the moment, I usually have a quick retort or I plain old tell them to "get the fuck out of my face!"
Media Matters has been closely monitoring Faux News of late, and this video clip pretty much says it all.
And now, it appears that Bristol Palin is going to be a spokesperson (ambassador) for the Candies Foundation. She will be speaking out against teen pregnancy. I find this a little hypocritical and until she gets her own life in order - is taking the wrong path. Does anyone remember her statements to Greta Van Susteren, that she thinks it is ridiculous for kids to practice "abstinence?"
I say, little girl, straighten out your own life, figure out your future education and also how the baby's father is going to fit into the picture. I personally, feel there is a lot of maneuvering from the Palin family, to disallow Levi Johnston his parental rights. Any father that has the desire to be a major factor in the child's life - is a good apple to me. I've seen to many sperm donors - just run fast and hard - to spread their DNA without responsibility.
No, I do not think young Bristol is the right person for this role.
Okie dokie, it's dinner time and I am not cooking - Outback's is serving me tonight, so have a good evening and I shall return....later.........
