Some Things Make You Say, “Huh?”

October 14, 2009

Alright, let me get this out of the way right up front: I’m not that into politics, and I’m not no WASP sympathizer. I voted for Obama; who wouldn’t have when given McCain? Thing is, I’m not that much of a “political party” type of guy. They seem like tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum to me, if ya know what I mean. Here’s my point, my rant for today:

Why the fuck did Obama get a Nobel Peace Prize? For crying out loud, the damn country he represents is in the middle of bloody war! Soldiers likely died while that very award was being given. Doesn’t anyone think this is weird or ironic or HYPOCRITICAL? To repeat myself, I’m not hating on Obama. I tried to share these ideas with a friend the other day, and they looked at me like I’d commited blasphemy. I’m not hating on Obama. I’m just saying, I really don’t see that much of his promises have materialized in the year since he’s been president, but hey it’s only been a year. What really gets me is the president of a country at war accepting the Nobel Peace Prize. That seems.. I dunno.. weird?

No offense to the man who was clearly the better choice and made history, and who seems like a down-to-Earth and level headed leader, but can we really give the Nobel to the leader of a country at war? Is there a parallel to the Bushie? Something like an Obamite?

One Thing I Don't Get

Religious people sometimes hold themselves to the most absurd of double standards. Take for example the fact we see religious signs literally all over the place, especially in the midwest, yet now all the religious people are going to piss and moan about this sign or that from the FFRF? (By the way, when I start making some good money, I think I’d like to join an organization like that, one that supports freedom of thought).

Seriously I mean we’re supposed to tolerate who knows how many crosses and Holy Virgins and whatever the fuck else (Oh my mom would freak if she knew it was me that typed that one), and now those who are religious can’t have any sort of representation? Taxation, but no representation? Make the money equal then damnit!

Sadly, it’s going to get to the point where nobody’s allowed to express anything because somebody will be offended by something anybody says regardless of anybody!!

9/11

September 11, 2009

I remember it was early in the morning. My buddy called, and said, “They’re attacking us!” I had no idea what or who he meant, I just turned on the TV, and that’s when I saw.

I don’t wanna commoditize this day and get all emotional or preachy like the rest of ’em, I just wanna remark that everybody’s got their own agenda even still to this day. I just remember the horror and the scenes of people jumping. I’m not gonna blame it all on religion like some are willing to do, for those involved bear responsibility (I’m not one of those strict determinists yet). On the other side of that coin, any dumbass who wants to say religion isn’t dangerous or can’t be used wrongly is crazy. Just look at 9/11. I mean, scientists have disagreements and stuff, but do they go around bombing “rival” universities and killing innocent people? OF COURSE NOT!

But, not to rant too hard here, I don’t want to be cliche about it. Other ranters better than I have ranted about 9/11 plenty before, it’s just that I had a discussion with a neighbor who lived near there and worked grooming dogs near ground zero. He told me some crazy stories. Stuff about nightmares and other high trauma type incident stuff. It’s stuff none of us need to share or see again, and stuff we can all avoid if we can just learn to relax and coexist a bit. I know, that sounds cliche too, but it’s true. Smoke weed! Chill out!

If You Dish It Out, Take It

May 9, 2009

So, I know it’s last year’s news and all, but I’m sure this year we’ll have an equivalent fiasco.

What I’m talking about is… (drumroll, please) religious signs! If you’re from the midwest like me, then you know exactly what I’m talking about: big, in-your-face, sometimes clever sometimes revolting signs that advertise for God.

Well, I heard about the FFRF and how none of the religious folk really cared much for their sign, now isn’t that sort of strange? For 200 years, Christians get to bombard everybody else with all their “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” crap when in full reality December 25th is the solstice, but Mr. Barker – who coincidentally used to be a Christian – isn’t allowed to place the FFRF’s, which advocates celebration of the solstice?

Am I the only one who sees that something that isn’t really right here?
