REMEMBER TO BECOME A "FOLLOWER!" Click on the sidebar!


Tuesday, May 05, 2009


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.........

Enjoy your bloomin' onion and try not to tell anyone to "get the fuck out of my face!" Especially anyone directly involved with the preparation of food.

Would it be cynical of me to think that Johnston wants to be involved with his child only because that's where the money is? Were he some anonymous sperm donor living down the block from his anonymous teenage baby momma, would the talk show hosts have him on speed dial?

Lemmy: I will try my very best. It takes a lot sometimes! LOL

kirby: You have a valid point also! Sperm donors are everywhere - dontcha know?!

With all due respect, I swiped the video so I could post it on my blog. I really, really hope you don't mind.

I have to agree with you about the choice of Bristol Palin as a spokesperson against teen pregnancy. She is no where near grown up enough for that position, especially after some of her comments about it being ridiculous for kids to practice abstinence.

Levi may not be the brightest crayon in the box, but he does deserve the right to help raise the child he helped to make. The Palin family is being arrogant and controlling, which will eventually kick them all in the ass.

The Palin's are mutating like the swine flu virus, and are on the news almost as much. We need to close the boarder with Alaska and isolate them until they fade away.

**ZING** to fox news. it's all propaganda. i was told a long time ago, if i want to know what's going on in the US, check out http://bbc.co.uk. go outside the borders where there is less political and media influence.

Every survey done shows that the ones that know the least about what's going on listen to Faux Noise or talk radio. Those that are the best informed listen to NPR or PBS.
As for Bristol, she is the perfect example of how teaching abstinence doesn't work. What we need is good sex ed.

Those asses at FOX are shameless.

It is nearly impossible to go anywhere here that has a television that isn't airing Fox News. Even at the doctor's office you have to sit and listen to the constant chatter of nonsense and propaganda dressed up as journalism. Maybe that's why we don't go out much.
