In the past few months (or maybe it's been longer and I've chosen not to pay attention) I've had people make some comments to me that were overly racist. Most days I just shrug it off. I'm not racist, I'm just not.
I don't give a rats ass where you're from, I just care you treat me right - if you don't, then we'll have issues. Otherwise... *shrug* whatever.
I don't think like that. This has brought many issues to my plate, because I make off handed comments like, "I really think this government needs an overhaul." Which I do and I have since about 2000 when I started hearing people tell me they were voting for George W. Bush (by far one of the WORSE presidents in American history) solely on one issue. <- this pisses me off. It pisses me off even more when I hear it's because of abortion. "I'm pro-life!" No you're not, you're "pro-baby." Don't talk out both sides of your face and tell me you're pro-life but we should be in Afghanistan killing "THOSE" kind of people. What kind? The ones with families? Or the once just trying to get by, just like you.
George W. Bush was about as Pro-Life as Genghis Khan, but at least Genghis Khan didn't hid behind some political curtain and pretend he was something he wasn't.
Like most politicians do.
So now it has been approved to build some super sized Mosque on the sight of Ground Zero in NYC. I'm for this. Why? Because labeling an ENTIRE CULTURE for what a handful of people did is ignorant and down right insulting to human beings everywhere.
This annoys me to no end. It pisses me off that people would rather be living in hate than realizing the picture may be, in fact, a lot bigger then the scared little person you have chosen to be.
I'd apologize, but you know what? I'm not sorry.
I'm not sorry for feeling like this. I'm not sorry for not agreeing with you. I'm not sorry one little bit. Places like the Middle East and Afghanistan are rich with history and beauty that we may never see again because of our hell bound need to go over there and "make them like us."
What the hell is so special about us? Every American I know tells me they're "nationality" is of another country. Bad new folks, if you were born here you're American. You're not Irish, Italian, German, Polish - your ancestors CAME from there, but if you have garage sales and lemonade stands you're 100% American.
So, please, tell me why you think living in fear of everyone else on the planet because they don't look like you, act like you or talk like you - makes you so special that we should model the rest of the world after you?
I'm me, I like being me and I don't want you to be me - in any way shape or form.
I still think this government needs an overhaul, and why? Because it's run by people who think this attitude and behavior is ok. Just look at AZ and Palin. This isn't the land of the free, this is the land of capitalistic pigs who think it's better to spread hate as long as it makes them richer than take the time to educate our youth into understanding diversity is a beautiful thing.
This is what anger gets you - nothing but more hate and anger.
Want to be a real hero? Go help out the millions of Americans who are dying of starvation because we have no money due to the long stupid wars were in.
Want to be a real hero?
Stop thinking your shit doesn't smell.
