Democrats - Enslaving African Americans for over 200 years!

Recently Sheila Jackson Lee once again tried to characterize the Republicans as racist for opposing raising the debt limit ceiling. She urged Americans to "Read between the lines,"..."What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not recieve the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th Amendment." "I hope someone will say that what it appears to be is not in fact accurate,"..."But historically, it seems to be nothing more." As with most things that come out of this blithering idiot's mouth, this is historically inaccurate or perhaps she doesn't remember the crap the Democratic party pulled regarding the debt ceiling in 1984.

It isn't about the facts though. It's about the race card. The Democrats have to play the race card because if they fail to do so, the truth may come out that the Democratic party has a long history of enslaving and subjugating African-Americans for political benefit as the despicable Ms. Jackson-Lee and other members of the Democratic establishment continue to do to this day. Don't believe me? Let's take a look at where the Democrats have decided to stand on race relations in the past:

13th Amendment -Abolishing slavery (but not giving blacks equality) - The Republican Party (which was formed for the purpose of abolishing the abomination of slavery) voted 100% to pass it. 77% of Democrats opposed this measure.

The Civil Rights Act of 1866 was passed over the veto of Democrat President Andrew Jackson because the majority in House and Senate was REPUBLICAN!

14th Amendment - Yep the Republicans struck again for the equality of all people regardless of skin color.

Even the Civil Rights Act of 1964 had higher support from Republicans than Democrats. Albert Gore, father of the former VP and current environmental fear-monger, voted against it as did Robert "KKK" Byrd, and J. William Fulbright (who I assume was so close to President Bill Clinton because of his kindred spirit to Al Gore's daddy).

The Democratic Party even ran a segregationist for president in 1972, George McGovern. The Democrats racial history is abysmal. The only way that they can possibly avoid facing the facts about their history is to use the slight of hand known as the race card. The charge is so reprehensible that those who are unable due to a lack of intelligence or unwilling because it requires effort and challenges the worldview they have adhered to for 40 years repeat the lie that Republicans are racist over and over again. In the meantime, when a Democrat actually does something racist (such as the white thug who beat up Ken Gladney as he spewed racial epithets) there is a cognitive dissonance throughout the Democratic party.

All facts point to this: The Democrat's use of the race card is not about race. The Democrats have never held the best interest of the African American community. It is a way to shut down debate...a shell game if you will. If you are not an indentured servant today, thank a Republican, if you are a slave to the Government because you receive public assistance, thank a Democrat.

Campaign slogan for 2012 - No, I couldn't give credit where credit was due.

The day after President Obama announced that Osama Bin Laden was dead, a friend of mine of facebook changed her status to read, "Obama's new slogan for 2012 has changed from, 'Yes, we can,' to 'Yes, I did.'" I replied that unless Obama acquired a presidential wizarding skill that caused Osama's head to explode, it was more likely that it was the hard work and dedication of the U.S. military that caused the top of Bin Laden's skull to detach (or something to that effect).

I can rejoice in the death of Osama bin Laden with my liberal brothers and sisters to a point. However, the fact that Barack Obama was fortunate enough to be in office at the time that the hard work of the U.S. military over the last 10 years paid off by eliminating the United States number one enemy doesn't cause me to forget the fact that leftist politicians, including Obama, have been denigrating the military and their reputation for years. I was beginning to wonder if Jack Murtha was an honorary member of Al Qaida when he called the U.S. Marines murderers and rapists, but then I remembered that Muslim extremists don't like pigs. Just last month, Obama threatened to hold military pay hostage in the event of a government shutdown rather than make much needed cuts to his entitlement programs (unlike his predecessors Reagan and Clinton) which is another post altogether. The investigation which led the military to Osama bin Laden began before Obama ever took office (approximately 4 years ago). Don't get me wrong, when the time came, Obama gave the order and I've seen pictures where he is anxiously waiting to hear whether the mission was a success. Here's the deal though, the left continues to obliviously continue their denigration of the military by not giving credit where credit is due. Our military personnel put their lives on the line, walked into a dangerous situation, and actually shot and killed the man who ordered an attack on the U.S. Can I get a "WOOT WOOT" for the military? Maybe a hooah? No?

Alright then.

The flu is barftabulous!

Two out of the five family members have come down with the flu in the last week, so my mind is understandably consumed with whether or not I'm going to get it.
I'm awful when it comes to nurturing a kid with the pukes. While I don't deliver food to them as if they were serial killers in a maximum security prison, I do run and scrub my hands and arms with antibacterial soap and scalding hot water. I show my concern by scouring the toilet to give them a "clean" place to barf.
I have a fear of puking in front of others (among my other phobias). Once, I had an adverse reaction to a medication that I was taking and puked in the parking lot where I work. This was witnessed by another person who had the NERVE to ask me, "Are you alright?" Had the shoe been on the other foot, I would have walked away, not acknowledging that person's existence. After I managed to squeak, "I'm awesome! Nothing to see here!" in as chipper a voice as I could muster, I spent the next 20 minutes trying to figure out if I would have to quit my job. I wound up deciding that since I didn't recognize that person, the odds of me ever seeing her again were slim enough that I didn't have to quit. However, if that lady ever gets transferred to my department, I would probably surrender my job before I surrendered my dignity. Note to others who enter my hijacked life, if you ever see me throw up it is best to pretend that it never happened!!!!

It's all about me.

We all have aspects of our personalities that are shaped by our past experiences. While I don't believe that we are the things that have happened to us, I do think that we have to make a conscious effort to recognize those aspects of our personalities that have been shaped (good or bad) by our experiences. Realization of this, ironically, can only come from within, not from outside input. This blog is, in some small way, my way of working through who I am. It is all about me.

From time to time, I may glibly approach subjects that hit other people very close to home. Maliciously rubbing salt in somebody's wound is not my modus operandi. I may be cynical and my sense of humor tends to be as dry as month old toast, but I'm not hateful. In fact, there are very few times that I have shot venom in the face of anyone that I knew personally. I'm a fairly easygoing person. If you know me, you will probably find things in my posts that make you wonder whether or not I'm talking about you. I'm not. It's all about me.

Because this blog is all about me
, I open myself up to a lot of criticism. There will be people who criticize my parenting, my marriage, my weight, my face, my writing skills, my religious beliefs, and the list goes on and on. If a gave a steaming pile of crap for other people's opinions, I would have conformed to their vision of right and wrong a long time ago. Chances are, I have probably thought about it in depth, examined your point of view in one form or another and found it lacking and therefore decided to discard it. It probably didn't fit in with what I know from my own personal experiences. Critical people are as common as pennies and not worth nearly as much. Those who can criticize creatively have somewhat more value to me but chances are that's not you. So unless you are convinced that you can either convince me with your rock solid reasoning skills that my p.o.v. is wrong, or you can criticize me in a way where I think, "I'm gonna have to steal that line and use it when I feel especially mean." Shut your cake hole.

We all have choices, my particular brand of cyanide may not suit you. It's okay not to subscribe. I'll still write the blog anyway, even if nobody reads it. Why? Because, it's all about me.

A cynic is born

It's hard to pinpoint the exact moment when I became cynical. I can point to a number of humiliating experiences and will probably share them when I run out of other things to blog about, but if you think of my cynical nature as a jigsaw puzzle, this event that I am about to relay would be one of the center pieces of that puzzle.

The year in 1989. I walked through the halls of Kirby Junior High with my pants tight-rolled to my ankles and my bangs matted and sitting six inches above my forehead. My generation decimated large swaths of ozone by resolidifying our mile high bangs between each class period with Aqua Net. If you would have touched my hair, I have no doubt that it would have shattered like the bad guy in Terminator 2 after he was dipped in liquid nitrogen.

The day was like any other day. I was dreading my daily humiliation session in second hour, P.E. When I walked in the gym, however, I knew that something was amiss. The rest of the girls were lined up against the wall in their "street" clothes. Some, toward the front of the line were weeping softly. As soon as the bell rang, the masculine-looking gym teacher, Mrs. L*** started calling the girls into the locker room one at a time. Within minutes, the girls would be dressed and take their place on another wall, rocking in the fetal position and mumbling to themselves. "What's going on?" I asked the girl in front of me, "Scoliosis exam" she replied. Not wanting to look stupid, I didn't even ask what Scoliosis was. When it was finally my turn, I entered the dungeon-like locker room. Water dripped ominously from the showers. "Take off your clothes, leave your panties on!" Mrs. L*** barked. My mind, failing to comprehend this order, would not allow me to follow this suspected-tranny's instruction. "Do it, I haven't got all day!" I did as I was told. "Turn with your back towards me and touch your toes!" She barked. My mind screamed, "WTF is going on here???" Within seconds, the exam was over. I wasn't sure what this woman was checking for since I was on one side of the locker room touching my toes and she was on the other side of the locker room and hadn't seemed to look up from her clipboard. I was instructed to get dressed and did so quickly. I sat next to another girl who was still mumbling and rocking and tried to evaluate what had just happened. I figured that scoliosis was some type of anal parasite, which explained why the teacher never left her post on the other side of the room. What I couldn't figure out is how someone with no medical experience whatsoever was qualified to check a whole school-full of pre-teen girls for butt trolls (BECAUSE I DIDN'T YET KNOW WHAT SCOLIOSIS WAS). Later, I found out that Scoliosis was curvature of the spine, but from what I could tell, our gym teachers weren't qualified to judge that either. It was then that I learned that people in authority could degrade you. A crucial lesson in Cynicism 101.

The reason that this horrible life experience comes to mind today is because my daughter's gym teacher decided that she probably had scoliosis and wanted us to take her to the doctor. She doesn't have it, much to my husband's dismay. He thought that dressing her up like a turtle/human hybrid would reduce the number of boys who would want to ask her out. I'm sure that it would temporarily, but I know a girl who had scoliosis that now looks like a 35 year old Jessica Simpson. Regardless, I know why the unqualified, non-medical professional thought that she might be afflicted. My daughter slouches like Quasimodo. What is more disturbing to me is that even though I pay for a physical examination every year by a guy with M.D. behind his last name, they are still forcing kids to go through this "exam." Another generation of cynics is born.

Thank You Farmville!

I may not believe that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to but with a little concerted effort, I do believe that you can move significantly in the right direction. I have accomplished some things in my life that I'm pretty proud of: losing weight, maintaining an above average gpa while working and going to school full time, raising 3 great kids. These are all things that I wear like a badge of honor. Yet if you were my "friend" on facebook, you would have to wade through multiple posts about my Farmville accomplishments before you ever knew any of these things about me.

My previous posts have been as follows:
Maggie found scissors
Maggie found fuel
Maggie collected strawberries
Maggie needs chocolates (for a goal on farmville)
Maggie just got an award for harvesting avocados
Maggie posted "Who does your taxes?" on a friend's page.

Then there's ten more posts about what I've accomplished on Farmville.
If you were to ask my closest and dearest friends, they would tell you that on occassion, I can be funny and engaging. In real life, that may be true, but on facebook, I'm just another Farmville junkie. The worst part of it all is, I'm not the best "farmer" out of all my friends. Their little patches of land are overflowing with little squares of awesomeness. In the meantime, I can't get enough fake chocolates sent to me to acheive the Farmville goal of matching a ewe with a ram in time to get an amorous animal badge by Valentines day.

My awesomeness level diminishes with every crop I harvest. Thank you Farmville.

Not my farm :(

The Power of Christ Compels You!!!

People either love or hate scary movies. I love them. I'm not talking about the gore-fests where a self absorbed prosti-tot meets the business end of machete by a psycho who never worked out his "mommy issues." I'm talking about the movies that leave you jittery as you walk out of the theater, cause you to pray to Jesus as you drive home vowing to attend church on a regular basis, and falling to sleep only if every light in the house is on and there is a crucifix somewhere in the vicinity of your bed.

Unfortunately, there have been more mediocre and bad movies than good ones. During a particularly horrible movie called "The Unborn" I nearly got thrown out of the movie for "booing." Yet hope springs eternal so I keep going. This week, I wasn't disappointed. I went to go see "The Rite." It deals with the subject of demon possession, a subject that scares the hell out of me. Honestly, if my children were possessed by a demon, I would tie them up and drop them off at the nearest Catholic Church. I'm not a Catholic but let's face it, they have the best track record. What makes this movie all the scarier **spoiler alert** is the fact that it is a seasoned Catholic exorcist that gets possessed. Needless to say, this one met all my criteria but if you're terrified of glandular, machete-weilding freaks you probably aren't going to like it as much as Halloween V. Seriously though, Anthony hasn't been that creepy since the Silence of the Lambs. You should see it, the power of Christ compels you.

Somebody peed in my snow

Every once in a while, my life takes a turn for the weird. Today was one of those days. I was standing outside taking a break from writing an engrossing paper on the role that performance evaluations play in the role of discrimination lawsuits. I looked to the left and I noticied that someone (this was definitely human and not animal) had come over to my house, pissed in my snow and then vacated the premesis.

At first, I was a little put out. The whole yard looks beautiful except for that one disgusting spot. Then I was aggravated, there was no way to cover it up and it was only going to get colder. I was going to have someone's frozen piss on my property until the snow melted. In the end, I had to laugh. It's too bizarre. Someone had to pull out their junk in 7 degree weather, unload, which had to be difficult considering that shrinkage plays a major part in that kind of cold, freeze their little pecker off while they peed on my snow and then run off. Weird.

People are crazy

Is it just me or is the world getting crazier?

I used to fear that the world was dumbing down so fast that soon, the population of the world would be working on an intelligence deficit. I think we have surpassed that and we are now at a point where a good portion of the population may be insane.

My definition of crazy is broad. There is mildly crazy, like people who obsessively collect figurines of elephants in clown makeup. There's moderately crazy like the people who get irrationally angry when anyone disagrees with their point of view. This group is alarmingly large. You see them in the bars screaming down anyone who doesn't think that "Mad Men" is the best show on television. There's Keith Olbermann, who I could picture screaming "Do you know who I AM?!?!?" at fellow passengers on the subway. Slightly above that are the schizophrenics who fling poo at random strangers after making a visit to the local methadone clinic. The thing that bothers me is that this group seems to be growing. My statistics (a random poll given to a small number of close friends) tell me 60 percent of the population is insane to some degree. It looks like this:

I bet I'm right.
