I only know enough about politics to get my ass chewed, then handed back to me, by someone who does know what their talking about. I’m a logical person and things that aren’t logical or don’t seem logical or seems inanely and unnecessarily convoluted don’t make any goddamned sense. Hence, I don’t understand politics. Electoral votes? Why not make it SIMPLE and make it a true vote of the people by allowing whoever wins the POPULAR VOTE to win the election? That shit doesn’t make sense to me. Then someone said (and I don’t know if this is true or not) that the electoral college is made of up of actual, real live electoral-college-people who are SUPPOSED to vote the direction the people they are representing but are not required to? WHAT THE FUCK DO WE EVEN VOTE FOR? This shit makes no fucking sense to me. If I’m going to cast a vote for Mickey Mouse and these twats aren’t going to submit my vote for Micky Mouse then there was no goddamned point in me even casting my stupid vote. Who gives a fuck that Micky Mouse is even in the running if all that’s going to come out of it is, “Well, Micky Mouse was the most popular choice, but he didn’t win because the people representing the people who voted for him didn’t cast their vote for him.” Also probably why Colorado swung hard blue even though Mittens was the popular choice. Because there are only 538 peoples votes who actually count.
Anyway, I’m mostly totally excited and really only care that I won’t get 10+ automated calls a day, 7+ mailers in my mailbox every night, and won’t have to watch 4+ political ads every commercial break. So. Goddamned. Grateful. It almost hurts how grateful I am.
You wanna hear something that ground my gears this morning? So, it’s national news that our lovely state has legalized pot, right? Which I couldn’t care less about one way or the other since I don’t smoke and don’t care about those who do. Anyway, some foolish assbag popped off online and said “I don’t want to year any sad stories about 5 year old kids getting ran over on the national news……cause you did it to yourselves.” Aside from the glaring grammatical errors littering his ignorant post, erm, I’m sorry. Motherfuck what? My kid gets run over by someone who CHOSE to get high and CHOSE to get behind the wheel of a 1 ton moving metal and glass death machine and runs my child over its MY fault? As the mother of a 5 year old little girl, I dare any stoner any where to blame me for pancaking my child. Excuse me, SIR, but I DID NOT DO THAT. And anyone willing to step to me and say otherwise has another goddamned thing coming because I promise that if you run my child over, I do not have anything else to live for, and will not hesitate to run YOUR STONED ASS OVER in retaliation. Have I made myself clear?
IF YOU KILL MY CHILD AND BLAME ME, I WILL MAIM YOU.
Woofuckingsah, man. That shit got me all wound up.
Something else I also noticed this morning: There are a whole shit ton of people hootin’ and hollerin’ and gloating and “YES YES YES”ing about Obama’s re-election. Also the same people who didn’t care to keep their opinions to themselves in the first place. Good for you guys. I like winning too! I’m totally on board with that! I also noticed that no one that I know on the other side of the spectrum is whining or bitching or moaning about how Romney didn’t win, which is really quite surprising because I know a lot of whiners. So pleasantly surprised that, from what I’ve seen, that one side is elated and one side is quietly licking their wounds and silently hoping things don’t get worse as they don’t have any alternative. Very adult like, if you ask me. I’m quite proud of my fellow republicans for taking their loss in stride.
I’M SORRY YOU GUYS. This was really political, wasn’t it? I love you. And you. And you. xoxoxo
UPDATE: Here is something else that just wound my watch too tight. I saw an argument, from a mother, about how we as parents are supposed to educate our children on the dangers of drugs (and alcohol). By passing this law, we are essentially condoning it! Not only that, but that in some instances the money raised by taxing marijuna will be bookmarked to provide drug/alcohol/substance education and awareness classes! Heavens to Besty, no! I saw this and thought, “Eh. Her opinion. That’s fine.” Then I saw that she “liked” and “commented” on a picture of her under(legaldrinking)age daughter holding a red Solo cup of beer at a Halloween party dressed as a “Sexy Baseball Player” which basically consisted of an oversized button down shirt and no pants. AND YOU’RE WORRIED ABOUT LEGALIZING DRUGS. Yeah, ok.
