We're Not Materialistic

The above is in my own hometown which has a population of less than 20,000 people...

Considering most of these things could have been bought online for the same price, are complete scams, or will be even cheaper before Christmas arrives, I think we can see why this country has gotten to the state it's in... We're completely gullible morons.

The Hermanator

The latest polls still show Herman Cain is in front of the pack in the GOP race...well, he and Mitt Romney are neck and neck. That, in itself, is absolutely horrifying.


1. He quoted Pokemon in the closing statements of a debate, and instead of being honest, he cited "a poet." Did it not occur to him to maybe, possibly get on the internet and find a more meaningful, less generic statement from an actual reputable source? That wasn't the first or last time he has quoted the great poet Pokemon.

2. He has referred to himself as both "The Hermanator" and "Cornbread." This person who wants to run the country and act as Commander in Chief wants the Secret Service to call him Cornbread.

3. Cain has proposed the 9-9-9 tax plan. This plan is a total ripoff of The Sims. The economy of a struggling nation would benefit from the utilization of a computer game's economic plans?

4. On numerous occasions, Cain has lacked the knowledge necessary to answer questions about foreign policy. Yet, he cites half the American public as "clueless" in his book. The same person who called a country "Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stan" instead of Uzbekistan and cited that country as "significant and small" despite the fact that Uzbekistan has been vital to our efforts in Afghanistan implies that half the population is beneath him? That's fine for just anyone, but it's not so fine for a Presidential candidate. Foreign leaders are already looking at him distastefully which cannot be beneficial for American foreign affairs if this guy wins.

5. Numerous women have now come forward and accused him of sexual harassment. Not just one. Not just one type of situation. A variety of women each with their own story to tell.

6. He was quoted as saying "I myself have 12 hats, and each one represents a different personality. Why just be yourself?" So, we want a guy with 12 different personalities running things?

7. He called reporters who quote the exact words coming out of his mouth "stupid" and called comedian Jon Stewart a racist for doing what he always does.

Isn't that enough to wake people up? Not hardly it seems which is unfortunate. I suppose some people actually believe him when he says he has been marked as blessed by Jesus because of his J shaped scar.

Weddings Are Serious Endeavors.

There's been quite an uproar in recent years about the definition of marriage and legal measures to set that definition in stone. According to nearly half the population, marriage should be legally defined as a union between a man and a woman and anything else is violating the intent and sacredness of marriage. Basically, for a good part of the population, gays and lesbians should never be allowed to marry.

So, heterosexual relationships are upholding the sanctity of marriage, right?

Heterosexual relationships like the one between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries?


Kardashian and Humphries were married on television with the wedding reportedly costing over 10 million bucks. Rumors have circulated about whether or not the Kardashian family actually profited from the wedding, but ultimately, it's not about any profit the Kardashian family made. For one thing, a Las Vegas nightclub paid Kardashian $50,000 to hold her bachelor party there. She was given 3 different designer wedding dresses totaling $60,000, $10,000 worth of invitations, and a $6,000 cake. That only scratches the surface of the "donations." Instead of being known for donating to those in need--the 1.5 million homeless children, these companies would rather be part of something which turned out to be nothing more than a publicity stunt. 

After just 72 days, Kardashian and Humphries are calling it quits. They took the vows which are meant to be sacred commitments of forever to one another only to admit those vows meant nothing after less than 3 months. 

In reference to the split, Kardashian says:

I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and didn't want to disappoint a lot of people.

Kardashian married for television and called it love, but close to half the population is concerned gays and lesbians would ruin the very idea of marriage. 

Sensible, right?

All the money spent on that sham could have done a lot for homeless children, but Kardashian couldn't possibly stop thinking about herself long enough to understand that concept. 

The one-two punch of this is deafening.

We treat our military personnel with pride and pay them well for their selfless work.

So we pay them on average less than 50,000 a year and trick and fuck them on and into long deployments.  Where they not only go into combat situations but also have the pristine jobs like cleaning up shit-water and fighting fires or just welding up steam pipes for catapults that launch F-18's all day.  And using ventilation not for the personnel but for the equipment the personnel work around ( in the middle of the gulf and in 107+ average temperatures ).  Seems the people that keep the equipment maintained and running are less important that the equipment itself.  Priorities. Check.

At least four Republicans and one Democrat in Congress have had children serving in Iraq.

So five out of a 100 tough it out? No wonder we still fight this pointless errand. The majority could careless.
