I think I'm going to scream now....listen if you like, and don't if you don't

Per usual, all kinds of craziness is going on in the news today. Crazy stories exploding all over my TV set like the 4th of July, until I can't take it anymore, I'm nauseated, and I jump up and change the channel, asking the cat why she turned this neocon asshole on, as she must have, because I'm so sure I wouldn't have done it myself. Rush Limbaugh calling Sonia Sotomayor a racist woman because she's Hispanic and she isn't afraid to say so to whitey. What? Since when did anybody even remotely intelligent take Rush Limbaugh seriously, anyway? It is 2009, correct? Maybe I'm confused. What goddamn year is this??!!

Newt Gingrich said Sonia Sotomayor isn't qualified for the Supreme Court, basically because she's a woman and she's Hispanic. Why else? Oh, yeah, she might be pro-choice too, right boys?? Abortion being, as it is, the be-all-end-all issue of scared little white boys like Gingrich and Limbaugh. Limbaugh, you really need to go back to pill-popping. That shows more character and it's far more interesting than listening to your racist, sexist ranting and raving. GTFO of my living room while you're at it. And don't come back.

Craziness. The Proposition 8 decision in California the other day is just another example of insanity en masse. Why are all these straight people so damned afraid of the gays of this world, anyway? What is really going on here: straight boys all have nightmares about being raped by gay men?? What the hell is really at the root of this idiocy about saying certain people can marry and other people can't?? WHY THE HELL DO YOU CARE if someone who is not you gets married?? Why? Really, though, why? No one seems to have an answer to that other than the usual neocon, homophobic, Bible-thumping hate-mongering bullshit.

And while I'm at it, what is with this whole Jon and Kate Plus 8 TV show hysteria?? Go the grocery store, and you can't get out without seeing 17 covers of magazines with pictures of Jon and Kate plastered all over them like yesterday's vomit. What is the deal with this now? This woman was married when she had her 90 children, so she didn't get raked over the coals like the Octomom, who had the nerve to be unmarried and even man-less when she bore her brood. But now Kate is an ice queen. A bitch. A bad wife and a rotten mother. A person who needs to go back to church and read her Bible more often. Why? Because she drove her pathetic passive aggressive husband away! She might have even driven him to cheat on her with a coed in the backyard! Golly Jee Willakers, does it get anymore scandalous than that??!! God save the queen! Run for cover! Man your battle stations!! Goddamnit the world is going to fucking end now because some woman wasn't a good enough Christian to prevent her obviously stupid, loser husband from finding a girlfriend. Get a life, Jon. You actually were not as smart as your wife, as anybody could see from day 1 of your lame TV show, and she really shouldn't give a damn where you go or who you're with anyway. That's my humble thought on that. Women don't drive men to be assholes who cheat on their wives, folks. Women do not hold the blame for everything bad that has ever happened in your life. Wakeup, Rush, because the whole 'feminazi' thing got old and lame about 15 years ago.

I'm sick of all this craziness coming at me from the media. I don't care about Brad and Angelina and Jennifer-I-got-cute-hair Aniston. Who really cares about this crap? Who cares what any neocon pundits have to say anyway? Really, who cares?? I have been putting some thought into this, and I'll tell you who cares. It is the idiots of this world who care. It is idiots who can't read, so they all have to take reading classes (which 75 percent of students at my college have to take), idiots who don't know how to find a book in a library, idiots who take their beliefs directly from the screen in their living room and the moron at their church pulpit. Idiots who hate others for simply BEING WHO THEY ARE.

Idiots.

They're really getting on my nerves.

I actually haven't had television for about a year now and I don't have a flash player installed on my computer (because I'm a computer dunce), so I can't get video. Still I do get some news on the computer and from my brother. So I pick up on some of the stuff you're pissed about.

It does bother me that some heterosexuals are freaked out about gay men and women wanting to marry. If anything, the gay men and women who want to marry are trying to follow the traditional way, but that may just be the problem for the homophobic heteros. They don't want gays to fit in to society. I just saw a newsheadline though where a gay Californian teenager was voted to represent a school at their senior prom--not sure whether the kid is male or female and gay, but it doesn't matter. Perhaps it's a small form of protest against the Proposition 8 decision, or maybe, hopefully, our culture is changing for the better.

Thanks Polar Bear and Kate. I think I was a little too irritable when I wrote that post. Ya think? I will try not to vent my frustrations at the world on here again. At least now *all* of them.
