It seems like every flippin’ day I turn the news on only to find my beliefs being insulted by somebody (and by somebody I mean mainstream media and people I’ve never met, not my liberal friends who are lovely people even if we disagree on things). Ordinarily I’d just ignore it. I’m good at that (I’m also good at holding a grudge but that’s another matter). But, c’mon, people, give the racist bigot card a rest! It’s got to be more tired of being used than I am of hearing it. And believe me, I’m REALLY tired of hearing it.
On another note, yes, I support the Tea Party. Get over it. I think lower taxes and smaller government are dandy ideas. I don’t need the government sticking its gigantic nose into every microscopic aspect of my life. I’m a reasonably intelligent adult and capable of making my own decisions. I don’t need You (“You” being the government) telling me what to eat, what to drink, what I can and can’t do in the privacy of my own home provided I’m not hurting anyone.
Maybe You should spend more time reading the Constitution and less time telling me “French fries are BAD!!!” I know French fries are bad. Bad but in an oh-so-good way. If I’m in the mood for them, eating a piece of fruit or some veggies isn’t going to make me want French fries any less. And I’ll take a bacon cheesburger with those fries, too, thanks.
