Third Party? Party!

gag me

After this week’s revolting media saturation with Sarah Palin’s cheesy hair and totally insane ideas, I’ve come to a really cool conclusion. The utter insanity that has taken over the Republican party has made way for a real, viable third party. I voted for Obama, not because I think he’s qualified or because I think he has an inkling of a clue how to run a country, but because I am just so terrified of the Christian right. That’s sad.
I think Obama is doing a terrible job in office, and the fradulent reports he has cooked up for the “stimulus package” are just plain insulting. How people are still blindly supporting his every move is beyond me. I’m beginning to think that 90% of my peers are delusional. Most of them won’t even listen when i try to show them proof of anything that could possibly make Obama out to be anything other than the most perfect person on earth.
Hopefully, the next 4 years will find my naive Democratic friends and some oldschool Republicans who have flown the coop banding together to figure out a way that this country can be governed by a realist.

The TLC Channel

The current lineup on the TLC channel makes me sick to my stomach.

10 Years YoungerAdults are told they look haggard then receive instruction on how to look like a teen harpy

There are more shows on there but I’m too grossed out to look at the TLC site anymore.

Christianity

Nothing makes me more confused and angry than Christians, especially the group called “The Christian Right”– a bunch of people who actually have a HUGE amount of influence on the way the entire USA works. It’s beyond comprehension. The fact that the last president of this country actually went as far as to announce publicly that his decisions were guided by “god” is totally outrageous.

I just want someone to explain to me how anyone could think that everyone on earth should have to live their lives according to a certain set of religious guidelines.  I understand morality, and I realize that a lot of the current debates going on in the US are moral issues.  I fail to see how anyone would think that the population at large would give a shit about quotes from religious texts like the bible.  I went to a bunch of the Prop 8 rallies and it blew me away that actual adults who looked semi-functional took time out of their day to cite biblical passages on picket signs and scream about Jesus to a huge crowd of people who really REALLY do not care.

There’s nothing wrong with religion.  I’m not religious, and to be honest I am slightly jealous that some people can find solace in blindly following the contents of books written thousands of years ago.  The thing that blows me away is that we live in the USA and this religious stuff is an issue in everyone’s daily life.  People sailed months and months on boats to get here and found this country because of religious persecution and now one of the two major political parties is completely controlled by a bunch of self-important zealots.
