this video taught me what the electoral college is about and why it was made

but i still dont buy the negatives

why should the less populous states have more of a powerful voice than the more populous ones

these states were created quite awhile ago.

so long ago that the current parties dont look anything like what they did back then.

neither do the states nor the people in the states.

one person, one vote would get more people into the polls

because right now, my vote in california doesnt matter

it would mean so much more in arizona or ohio or michigan

and thats fucked up and no way to figure out who should be president.

the first black attorney general agrees with me



of all the things i dont understand

women top the list

which isnt to say i understand:

remove under penalty of law pillow tags
jews for jesus
vegetarians who eat fish
any romance concerning the dh
why some tv looks worse in hd than it does on regular tv
why we insist on the electoral college
why people who are sexually active dont get tested regularly
the popularity of jay leno
21st century fm radio
why Ulysses was once banned
the lack of bs called on these $4 a gallon gas prices
the multitudes of intelligent people who live by an ancient book theyve never read
men who wear crocs
women who wear thongs with labels still in them
generic dog food
how pat obrien kept his job for nearly 3 years after those phone calls
why beck peaked so early
the decline of top hats over the years
why we dont get uptight that osama hasnt been found
why presidential candidates dont say elect me and i will find that fuckr
why tsar didnt sell millions
why counting crows did sell millions
why people buy minivans when none of them grew up being driven in them and life was fine
how anyone can be bored these days
why some people still get married very young
why classic rock sounds 100 times better than current rock
why some people insist on doing things they hate instead of things they love

but mostly i dont understand women any more today than when i was 14.

dear karl rove,

karl rovei saw you on meet the press this morning saying how the nation has moved in the republican direction and you know youre full of shit but youre so easy on the eyes that i’ll let it slide. this time.

you know as well as anyone that if the dems could have gotten 100,000 ohio democrats who had registered to actually vote you wouldnt have been on meet the press this morning, youd been helping the bushes pack their shit.

this nation hasnt moved anywhere. bush won all the same states that he won four years ago as if nothing significant had happened since 1999.

however the nation has surely moved towards a direction of greater intolerence. if you want to claim that as a republican direction be my guest.

intolerant of people choosing who they wish to marry, intolerant of a woman choosing what she wants to do with her womb, intolerant of americans choosing not to be believers in the easterbunny/santaclaus/godblessamerica Christianity that has more to do with politics than scripture

intolerant of facts

intolerant of the UN, fiscal responsibility, and the US constitution

edwards was right about two americas and you need to look no further than the electoral college to see that. or some of the better maps.

theres the city folk and the country folk.

the city folk are educated and worldly and diverse. they work with gays and foreigners and unwed mothers and people with turbans.

they know these people and see that theyre no more fucked up than the country folk or other city folk. if anything the city folk understand that everyones fucked up but the way to make things better isnt to exclude, shun, or discriminate. it’s to embrace.

the country folk live in suburbs or farms, on acres or culdesacs. only bus they know is the school bus. the only gays they know have moved or keep quiet.

when the country folk dream of sending their kids to great colleges they dream of city schools, where all the best art is, all the best music is, and all the best companies are.

giving middle america the chance to ban gay marriage is like giving urban america the chance to ban country music. its an orgy of ignorance. a fiesta of fear.

a bukkake of bigotry.

and definitely nothing to crow about mr. rove or spin as something positive about who your party attracts.

while the cockblockers came out in droves to screw the gays they also voted for your guy and then lied to the exit pollsters

in embarrassed shame.

meanwhile republicans in ohio and florida tried to intimidate, confuse, and prevent democrats from voting in those key states.

is that the gop direction that you’d like to see continue in this nation?

heres my suggestion to you mr rove: keep the president away from the press as you did so smoothly last term

keep america in fear like you did so flawlessly last term as well.

but knock off this shit that this is a republican country

this is a divided nation stuck with an idiotic electoral college

and the line in the sand isnt big government vs small government

it’s love your neighbor vs write laws to discriminate against your neighbor.

and dont think that even the country folk dont know that.

yes i am a little dissapointed

why im singleand suprised that not more people took me up on the honest-blogger quiz.

i thought more bloggers had the courage to answer a few questions so that others could learn more about them and so they could be up-front to their readers.

but we dont really live in a time when courage is rewarded as much as mediocraty and image and status.

it takes courage to do things like say the war on drugs is a pathetic waste of time and money.

it takes courage to do things like say the war on iraq is a pathetic waste of time money and american lives and how dare we have the nads to propigate the belief that iraq cant figure out how to move on without saddam unless WE teach them how to set up their new system when our system produced a fucking retard as president who didnt win the popular vote and probably didnt win the electoral votes either. why do we have an electoral college again?

it takes courage to say i voted for these five people as president.

it takes courage to put your name on it and present it to the blogosphere which includes people who might want to disagree with you.

it takes courage to say i believe that Jesus is God and i have read and agree with the Bible.

and it really takes courage to say i believe in Jesus and i havent read the bible.

but i know the game. dont make yourself vulnerable, dont put yourself out there, dont reveal the truth about yourself or else you give your “enemy” ammunition and you shock your supporters.

it takes courage to say that you dont give a flying fuck what your readers think about your beliefs, here they are, love it or git.

one thing you have to say about our sitting president, he doesnt give a rats ass what you think of him, his lack of education, his fucked up brand of Christianity, his disdain for the press and the constitution, how the world views this country, how his actions effect the economy, or how much oil prices are costing americans.

all he cares about is himself and his friends and their ideals.

hes a dumb as an abusive soldier smiling at the digial camera, but at least he’s comfortable with himself. and that we could all learn from.

in the same way that we can learn by noticing how much retards laugh.

my pallie kitty bukkake wrote an addendum to the honest-bloggers quiz. below are her new questions and my new answers.

1. Do you try to look hot when you go to the grocery store just in case someone recognizes you from your blog? i live in hollywood. im the last person anyone is going to recognize.

2. Are the photos you post Photoshopped or otherwise altered? that would take some sort of effort. not to mention time and talent.

3. Do you like it when creeps or dorks email you? creeps no, dorks sure.

9. Have you ever rubbed one out while reading a blog? How about after? at 110 years old it takes a little more than what ive seen on the blogosphere. although raymi, bunny, bunnie, and zulieka intellectually turn me on a great deal.

10. If your readers knew you in person, would they like you more or like you less? probably less. which is why i dont encourage interaction, and why i dont seek out meeting the bloggers who i like to read.

Do you care? my counter has been public since i started. right now it says that i am averaging 2,000+ but sitemeter’s averages has never worked right. i average about 1,000 a day. heres why i know it doesnt work right. for nearly half a year i have averaged about 1,000 a day. last week atrios linked me and i got 7,000 in one day and 3,000 the next day. now all of a sudden sitemeter is saying i average 2,000+. nuts.

19. Do you have another secret blog in which you write about being depressed, slutty, or a liar? im not depressed very often, but the times that i am i wish i had a secret blog because if i write about it i would prefer to turn off the comments on that particular post because i wouldnt want it to look like i was pandering for pity. sometimes i just want to tell a sad story starring me. otherwise im rarely slutty and i only lie on the blog.
