Sincere Excitement

EXCITING NEWS EVERY PONY! I mean, what. My sticker came! It's beautiful, isn't it? Although, don't pay attention to the fact that it is super crooked in relation to my equality sticker which is fading and it's sad.

Today in American Government (by far my favorite class so far... and I'm not just saying that because the instructor will probably read this at some point), we looked deeply into Elizabeth Warren's latest big quote, I'm sure you've all heard it or read it by now. For those of you who are way behind...

There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there — good for you!
But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that maurauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did. Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea — God bless. Keep a big hunk of it.
But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.
I love this so much. I love her a lot. Mostly because you would think she would be incredibly conservative looking at her history, but in reality she is really open and in my opinion, really right-on.

What are your opinions on the Occupy Wallstreet deal? I honestly wish I could be there shaking my fists in the air with rage wearing my radical 100% cotton smock. Mostly because I think the whole situation is riveting, exciting, but I have one little concern. Have the rioters lost their spunk solely on their disorganization? MSNBC suggested they are lacking leaders, and that's what really is differentiating them from the London riots earlier this year. I could see it.

UM, so I have a job interview tomorrow... My do nothing days that happened for about two weeks could potentially be gone. That is so sad. But so okay, because I will actually be able to afford my car. Hoorah!

Our favorite Malkin at the Fox News Station has made a very... fox-y claim. "Obama is the guy who is shaking around his brass knuckles every time... someone criticizes him". Ha ha! Yeah, okay. Honestly one of my only complaints about Obama is that he doesn't do enough shaking of the brass knuckles. Hell, I think he should be whippin' them around at all them congress members.

Walmart Adds Transgender Provisions To Employee Non-Discrimination Policy today.What, does that mean we're supposed to put them on a floating carpet and praise them for their concern? Let's not forget about all of their ABUNDANT line of history in incredibly blunt anti-LGBT regimes. So yeah, this is a good thing of course. But dammit Walmart, you make so many lives miserable every single day and make people think you're being charitable by selling less than acceptable in the level of quality items for a great price! You suck. Go die.

I'm off to stress out about my interview, and do some homework now. Stay fresh, ya'll. And go be active on the Lame and Forceful Facebook page!

Please Do Not Control My Vaginal Rights

The wonderful Ezra P. Miracle has been giving me advice on maintaining a blog without getting distracted from it and neglecting it. So I now have a whole two pages in my journal titled "shit to blog about". Yay!

Herman Cain (I always say "Hermain Cain"... which is kinda funny. To me, anyway...) recently came in first as a GOP Presidential candidate in a Florida Straw Poll. For Hermain, this is a first. Are you wondering what his secret is? A campaign that an NPR writer called a "Buy one pizza, get one free", which is fitting. His pizza campaign is also known as the 9-9-9, this clever abbreviation stands for NINE percent flat income tax, NINE percent corporate tax, and NINE percent nation sales tax. If you  are lost, so is the rest of rational America. But hey, who needs rational America when you've got irrational Florida!?

*Takes break from blogging to do French homework*

Congressman Cliff Stearns is still a big 'ol douche bag. This time he is using a "backdoor tactic" to shut down Planned Parenthood. Has he been combing his eyebrows too long to realize this battle should be over by now? Please do not try to control my vaginal rights, Stearns. You were already on my bad side anyway.

You can sign one of the many petitions here.

Today on Faceboook, "Have you ever deceived other people for an extended period of time? NPR is looking for personal stories of public deception that involved a large amount of self-deception as well. If you’re willing to tell your own story on air, please tell us about it in the comments. Thanks!"

There's a whole party of those folks, drinking tea and being stupid. Maybe NPR should contact every single one of them?

The Daily Beast today is worried about Rick Perry's blueprint for America (I am still laughing at the Pizza CEO, Hermain). But hey, who needs a blueprint when you've got the perfect presidential face? Why not run for President completely on your handsome American next-door neighbor looks? George W. Bush had a similar tactic... well, his was based on sincere lies and cheating. But Perry seems to be easily lying and cheating through the roots of society, right? Making you feel like he is some kind of angel? We all know, or at least I hope everyone reading this blog knows, THAT is certainly not true. 

You can read more on that here. 

President Obama needs me.  Or at least that's what I am telling myself. In his back to school address today, he announced that  we are 16th in the world of students with a college degree. "That's not good enough. And so we need your generation to bring us back to the top. If we do that, you guys will have a brighter future. And so will America."

I don't even care about my super-mega-liberal-socialist beliefs. Obama's got me hooked. I love him. And when he addresses my generation, I think of him the same way I think of my dad. Like, all I want to do is make him proud of me! I think I will use his speech to reflect upon when I am having one of my "poop on school" days. I'll make you proud, B. I'll make you proud.

Now I am off to get some "Caramel and Cinnamon" towels from Kohl's because my dad is going through his mid-life crisis. Is that appropriate to post publicly? I don't know.

Be kind to one another.

Oh hey there American Government class...


Alrighty, my classes are shaping up quite nicely. French, Speech, and American government. I think this will be a super fun term! Full of... voicing my opinion. Especially in American Government!

My instructor wants to show this blog to the class, so I figured I had to clean it up a little. If this is being read out loud right now in the class I am awkwardly sitting in, well, I don't know what to think. Just don't look at me, okay!

What's wrong in the world today? Well, first of all, my Obama 2012 sticker is STILL NOT HERE. That's annoying. And the other day I saw a bumper sticker that said "NOPE" and in smaller print "Let's keep the changes in America". I'm disappointed in myself for ever thinking there was any sanity left in these ignorant people. So, I am forcing myself to accept the fact that they will never make sense(as a side note that I cannot resist, KEEPING CHANGES? Is that possible? Does that make any sense at all? NO).

Aside from my oxymoronic encounters, what else is going on?

Chris Christie is not in fact running for president. I am relieved, as I hope most people are, but at the same time I am afraid of the potential stupidity these other candidates could cause. Michelle Bachmann makes me want to cry for all of my fellow gay kids, and Rick Perry makes me want to cry for America. Well, okay, both make me want to just cry in general. Which means it's time to buff up and voice my opinion!

Oh, and President Obama is just a "bystander in the oval office". I chuckle to myself as I sit in lotus position on my school-book-covered bed and listen to my favorite cheerful Celtic band. Chris Christie is so dumb.

Guess what, I'm still not old enough to vote. But hey, there's always my dad to influence!

I have recently begun the process of starting up an organization called Salem Youth For Change. Basically, it's an attempt at getting the younger generations aware and active. I'm looking for speakers and helpers for our first meeting! Which will basically be a democracy style discussion.

Here's the blog:
Here's the Facebook:

So even if you aren't "youthful", we would LOVE to have your support and ideas included. You can also email us at, get added to our emailing list yo!

But enough advertising. My internet is having a poopish connection. That has no relevance. Continuing...

Glenn Beck is becoming the new Oprah, everyone! McKay Coppins headlines a post on the Daily Beast with "Former Fox News firebrand Glenn Beck is busy building a Winfrey-esque empire. He tells McKay Coppins exclusively how his new GBTV online network will rival Fox—and why all politicians are liars".

My position has changed to a ninety-degree angle with my back rested against a pillow, and I sigh in with a feeling of both disgust and sincere hope that Americans can stop being ignorant assholes who actually believe a word that comes out of Beck's mouth. My second sigh is accompanied by a head-scratch.

That's all I have time for tonight, holy geebs it's already 10! Sleep must reign upon me now!

Au revoir!
