I'm going to start today off with a quote from myself.
"They ask me if I'm pissed. And I say, Never in my life have I been more pissed than I am now. But never in my life have I been less pissed either" That's from a poem I'm working on.
So why am I pissed off? Many reasons. First of all, my speech class was canceled after I spent so long preparing myself last night and sacrificing study time for my American Govt. midterm. Which was not canceled.
But that's not the main reason. The main reason is that there are so many idiots in the world. Ann Coulter, author of the book "Demonic" (which I assume is an auto-biography) commented on the Sean Hannity Show last night with "Our blacks are so much better than their blacks," talking of course about Herman Cain in comparison to Obama. "If you are a conservative black, they will believe the most horrible sexualized (making up words again) fantasies of these uptight white feminists,” UGH UGH UGH. She is so gross. Here's what I think. Republicans, not in all instances, are racist. Time after time they VOTE on anti-immigration laws. There is no way you can hide that those are fueled by racism against the latino culture. Against spanish speakers. Against brown skin. Are presidential candidates forced to be bilingual? And if you're going to be so "traditional" why are you completely ignoring the fact that this country was built on diversity? That every single person, aside from the natives, immigrated here?
I'm not saying all republicans hate Obama because he's black. I'm saying that you can't say you don't separate people based on race or ethnicity when you are constantly voting on things that prove you do. She says something about democrats always saying "blacks can't be republicans", which is understandable that she would think that's absurd. Because it is. They're just as much an immigrant as she is, but what doesn't make a whole lot of sense is that we as a whole aren't supporting further culture to be embraced by our country. We should be. It's the same with the fact that she's a woman. Constantly, there are clear signs of the right being very anti-woman in their comments and actions. So it's kind of odd that she is supporting a... "thing" that isn't supporting her.
Another reason I am pissed off. House of Representatives is expected to vote on... keeping America's motto as "In God We Trust". This is just annoying and disgusting. I believe this saying was taken on by the United States as a symbol of strength compared to other countries. Kind of a, We Are God kind of thing. It's creepy. I'm not one for religion, we all know that, and the fact the country (again, which holds a very sincere "freedom of expression" quota which involves religion) is forcing me to bow down, makes me very uncomfortable quite frankly. I don't care if you're religious, but don't push anything on me, and do not use "the bible" as your only source of "factual information". I'll be even more pissed.
That's all for now. You're welcome, Jill.
