Sarah Palin visited Madison, WI today and it snowed on April 15th. She had plenty of supporters, at least two hundred or so. They all came with eager earnest to hear their hero speak. I hope they huddled close, as her opponents filled the square with chants of 'shame' and drowned her out. If you lived downtown you might have been able to see Palin from your house, but you could not hear her. You could hear 'shame' from your house though.
That made me realize, if there is one person who I really want to meet before I die. I have many questions for him. I would hold these questions for God, but I have a niggling feeling that even God is wondering 'Why in the world too?' That man I want to meet is John McCain. Yes, I want to meet John McCain before I die. I kind of felt sad on election night 2008, seeing John McCain's sad face when he lost and conceded. It was like grandpa lost. I may have even voted for grandpa. But it really was his own fault. I actually liked McCain as an ethical person, with genuine desire to serve USA and moderate reason. The only reason I leaned against him is his lack of economic experience and just flawed economic ideas, but what sealed the deal was Palin. (PS: Actually I was also impressed by Obama and continue to love him like a fan girl).
I really want to ask John McCain, why he hated the Republican party so much. In India we have a saying 'apne hi pair par kulhadi', it means 'throwing the axe on your own feet', thats like making a self destructive mistake. However, there is another saying reserved for dumb shizzle who cannot help but self destruct its called 'kulhadi per pair marna', which means 'throwing your own feet on the axe'. When McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate he was not the axe murderer who hacked the Republican party with an axe, it was like a dumb decision of having the entire Republican party throw themselves on the axe and be hacked.
That woman rose from obscurity as some former beauty queen, full time hockey mom and Milf who also Governor of Alaska on the side to this behemoth of polarizing glory who makes intelligent people conservatives and liberals alike to go WTF!! She single handedly started a tea party movement that probably makes Samuel Adams roll in his grave and wish if there was a way to go back and do something different, or better yet smack the bitch and all her washed out zombie followers and teach them some true history of America and what the Boston Tea Partiers were all about. Its perturbing actually, its actually turning off people from enjoying their tea. I think I've actually subliminally cut back from drinking tea and am consuming much more caffeine.
Any way, only someone who wanted to destroy the GOP and divide the Republicans would have picked someone as neurotic and insane as Palin. To think there was a time I lamented that there would be no more George Bush to make fun off, and poof there was Palin. It was as if McCain wanted to give the people something to laugh about. So as you can see, I'm clearly confused as to why he would want to self destruct his own party that he is so proud of. Moreover, I want to ask why does he hate America so much. As a venerable war veteran, I always respected McCain as a soldier and true patriot. But now I want to know why he hated us so much to bring this mindless American to the forefront and paint the picture of Americans across the world as dumb bimbos. So after George Bush and now Palin the world perceives us as dumb apes and dumb bimbos. The mindless zombies of brain dead America were asleep in deep slumber and now she has awoken the hordes of zombies who support her (although I do believe many support her just for kicks or with the knowledge that its the likes of her who will have them laughing all the way to the bank). These are not the usual brain eating zombies, they are the deadly zombies that literally eat all of you and then leave your material possessions for their masters to become the Americans with prosperity.
Either way some people might be in doubt why a proud pro-union thug like me considered voting for John McCain and has a lot of respect for him (DADT aside). The thing is I'm actually a moderate. I do realize that I often come off as a bleeding heart liberal due to many of my beliefs. That is because we are now stuck in a phase of ideological warfare not one that is rooted in economic or political pragmatism. Socially I am very liberal, I believe that government should not just stay out of religion, but stay away from molding society to confirm to any ideological beliefs they may hold and focus on real issues. I'm actually a proponent of supply side economics to a large extent and the importance of private sector, especially in terms of globalization, free trade, reducing trade barriers and avoidance of double taxation policies. At the same time I do believe in the responsibility of the government and public sector to maintain stability, maintain accountability and oversight of the private sector and engage in practical social welfare so that the whole nation and society is prosperous, nor plutocratic individuals. In some ways I'm like a neo-Keynesian. After all Keynesian economics is what stabilized post war and post depression economies, helped new nations of the past century like India fiscally establish themselves but Keynesian principles need to be adapted to our modern global economies which was not there in the past.
But even if I was a pure supply-side economics, I could not support this preposterous trickle-down economics promoted by the tea-party. It is not even a well grounded or accepted economic theory either, just some gibberish fed to ignorant people as some magic form of supply-side economics that focuses on large capital and entrepreneurs and ignores the fact that labor and small capital also contribute to supply. So it does not matter if I'm a Keynesian economist, a fiscal conservative, a tax and spend liberal or what my economic approach is to solving America's crisis. Because if we practically thought about logical economic solutions like reasonable, intelligent and informed people we would have found a solution already.
As you can see this is fucking ideological warfare. Which ideological side am I on. Thats what this topic is about. Am I pro-life or pro-choice, am I pro-Walker or pro-Union, am I pro-America or pro-Muslims/Immigrants/God Forbid terrorists, pro-Christ or pro-Gay. Pro-Pro-Pro-Pro what? It is like the world's worst false dichotomy. You cannot agree or disagree with one side's value without being branded evil by the other side.
So this is it, I'm sick and tired of making flawed dichotomous choices. Do I go around screaming 'Hey abortion is awesome! Have one!' or do I go around screaming 'Abortion is sin, Jesus hates sinners'. You know what, it is a well known fact that I hate babies, but I hate people too. So there, I solve the dichotomy for both of you all, I am anti-choice, and anti-life. What does that mean? That means that when we can't agree to the answer to a simple question, or even agree do disagree, then you fucking get rid of the stupid question. There I said it, I propose killing all pregnant women. Problem solved. Actually many problems solved. Now we don't have to worry about women's health care and can get rid of planned parenthood, we don't have to be worry about the mom and child so we can get of their food stamps, we don't have to worry about the child's education and can fire all the teachers, we don't have to worry about the grown child's health so we can get rid of health care reforms, we don't have to worry about unemployment as there is no child or mom seeking jobs, we don't have to worry about them getting old and can get rid of medicare and social security.
It might sound cruel and sadistic to kill all pregnant women, but it is far more kind than having kids be born into poverty, struggle through childhood with no assistance, have sub-par education, then be unemployed and broke due to no opportunities, and then live on the streets with no welfare, and die old and miserable because of no medicare - that is if they are unlucky to survive till old age. It is confusing as to why caring for women's health and their reproductive rights, or caring to have high quality education accessible to all, caring for the health and welfare of people or caring for the well being of old people means that one has to be anti-American, anti-prosperity and destroying the nation. I'm confused how with all the wealth we make as a nation it is evil and anti-tax payer to expect people to give back a nominal amount to the society that gave them opportunities and as a small thank you for all the nation gives them. But apparently my compassion is misplaced and misguided, and I'm a patriotic American - so I propose to kill all pregnant woman henceforth.
PS: Actually killing pregnant women is a ruse. I would do no such thing. I could not even harm a fly if my life depended on it. The truth is I plan to kill all the people who did not get any of the sarcasm and think I'm actually a hater who wants to kill pregnant women. They are the dumb shit we could do without and my anti-choice and anti-life agenda is the mission to flush out the nut jobs on all sides.
