It seems now is the time to get your hate on. Political Agenda Style.

Anyone else watch the State of the Union address last night? I know Roomie & I did.

It's time to start calling these ass-clowns in Washington out. I don't care if you're a Republican or a Democrat. Shut the fuck up, sit down, and do something. Why are you in Washington if your only goal is to advance your personal agendas? The fact that Republicans are smug right now makes me sick. What do you have to be smug about? You're attempting to successfully railroad important agendas; like health care reform and the forming of a fiscal task force, and then lead your constituencies (through misinformation) to support your railroading. Good job.

Open letter to Congress:

Dear Senators of the United States of America,

Please, for one moment, be embarrassed. All of you. Be embarrassed for sitting on your hands, for disrespecting this country through your lack of action, and for being power-mongering, self-promoting, pompous individuals. Please, for one moment try to act in a cohesive nature. While Senators need to remain loyal to their constituents, they need to remember that they are not STATE officials. They are NATIONAL officials representing the people. Please work on bringing us together and not dividing us. Please do not be afraid of change. While change for the sake of change is not good; neither is lack of change due to fearing the unknown.

Hopefully, you took a moment to feel embarrassment or some sense of remorse.
Now sit down and get to work please.

Side Note. This HPC post was sparked due to a political text message battle between my father and I. Excerpt:

Dad: Must have been pretty embarrassing watching the collapse of your leftist liberal progressive party the last few weeks huh... [Let's see. He got Leftist, Liberal, Progressive. He forgot socialist & communist]
Me: Uh, I don't think we watch the same news. That's an interesting spin Fox gave you though.
Dad: Sorry honey. That's from your side. You guys are done. I'm serious. The great scam is over. [I'm really not sure what "your side" means. I'm assuming some "lefty news station"]
Dad: It's ok honey. We're more than happy to welcome you back to reality.
Me: Hahaha. Thanks for the offer, but I'll stay where I am. Believing that changing a dysfunctional system is neither scary nor apocalyptic.
Dad: I agree with you completely honey. Every single thing he (Obama) stands for and is trying to do to this country is totally dysfunctional and dangerous to our long term success. I think the country waking up to this and taking back control is great! It's a center right wing country honey. It will never be socialist. [See what he did there. Said we agreed, to trick me! I'm smart though...he was using word play. Also. He managed to fit the word "socialist" in.]

It goes on and on and on and on...I won't bore you with the rest...just to say we finally agreed to agree on the fact that the fiscal irresponsibility of the 4 years prior to Obama taking office was a travesty that neither of us can stomach. Then we said love you. awwww.

No one has to vent anymore?

I'm gonna be real.  Can I?  Oh wait, I'm posting and you can't so I'm gonna whether you are feeling it or not.

Ok...first off.  What?  No one has anything they need to get off their chest anymore?  Did everyone get all happy-go-lucky as last year wound down to a close?  I'm here with some serious positivity and shit, but for real, something's urking me and I'm 'bouts to unload a full clip of hate on you fuckers.

1.  I don't ever, EVER, EVER want to hear the phrase "social media" ever again.  NOT ever.  Not if it was the key to the holy grail.  FUCK "SOCIAL MEDIA".  Just call it facebook for fuck's sake.  Ok, call it facebook AND twitter.  What else is there?  No one is on myspace anymore, and if you are, i'm sorry for you.  (bands are ok still).  Then what else we got?  They're not counting texting, or emailing (the experts that is).'ve got facebook and twitter.  2 things....not 1.  Fuck Social Media.  Fuck it to death.

2.)  Since I'm ranting about a phrase...let's break it down to 2 of my other least favorite words of the last year.  The "r" word and the "e" word. know the ones.  YES YOU DO!.  "Recession" and "Economy" can go ahead and fuck themselves too.  Seriously.  Dear aforementioned words, please suck a dick and fuck yourselves.  Maybe the collective fucktards that make up the mass consuming public would feel a little bit better about buying that 3rd big screen TV for the kitchen breakfast nook if the media wasn't face fucking them with how shitty things are and how it's never gonna end and and and and and and....

maybe.  just maybe.

3.) Also, I hate dropping my keys.  A LOT.  
4.) Taking more than 1 trip.  I.E. carrying groceries from the car to the house...or something like that.  I'd rather struggle, loose my breath carrying 60 lbs up 19 stairs than go down them once more to get that last bag I decided to wait for.  Fuck that.  I hate 2 trips.
5.)  Doors slamming.  MY DOOR slamming.  Everyone knows it slams who's ever been over there.  I've even probably mentioned to everyone 3 or more times as they walked into or out of "don't let the door slam".  Still, it slams.  I'm gonna start going to everyone's house just pop on over unexpected.  Come to the door.  Invite myself in.  Slam the door, then proceed to walk out, slam it again...and go home.  Maybe i'll make it a double header and go to another friend's house.  

who's first?
