liberal and fucking proud of it

saw this bumper sticker this morning on the drive home from dropping riley off at school.








i was curious about it legitimacy...so i looked it up when i got home.





















so next time someone says "you fucking liberal" to me i will say "thank you very very much".

although.....the only person who would and has said such a thing is no longer in my life.

sorry, but there is no room for bigots and racists in my family.




oh...and dan made a good point last night while we were chatting about this ugly election. how do you think the republican party would handle it if obama or biden had an unwed 17 year old girl who was pregnant? how do you think the country would handle it if one of obama's girls got knocked up at 17? the double standard is nauseating. do you think mccain would say families are off limits (like obama has)? it would be the end. the democrats would be slaughtered. because the way the republican party plays this game is by lying. by creating diversions from issues. by manipulating the dumb public. by pointing a finger anywhere but at themselves. and it works. people eat that shit up. and if you don't play the game you end up like kerry.

the high road doesn't mean shit in a country full of assholes.

sorry. feeling like i want to move far away. i think Iceland would be nice. (i had this same thought 4 years ago....except now it is worse)


my only hope...is here:

"Spare me the phony outrage. Spare me the phony talk about change," Obama said at the start of an education event in Norfolk, Virginia.

"We have real problems in this country right now. The American people are looking to us for answers, not distractions, not diversions, not manipulations. They want real answers to the real problems we are facing.

"I don't care what they say about me. But I love this country too much to let them take over another election with lies and phony outrage and swift boat politics. Enough is enough"

please please please, obama. please more of this.

Obama also said this week when he was talking about the impact of 9/11 that in spite of our political differences the fact is that we're all Americans. Seems to me that in spite of our political differences that, when it comes to family, we're family first and liberals or conservatives, republicans or democrats second. It is really a shame to put political differences above family. And just as he wouldn't let something like 9/11 distract from the point that we're all Americans, I don't believe for a minute that he'd let political disagreement divide a family.

i really wish my parents would stop commenting under "anonymous"...
and it is not about a member of my family being a republican, it is that he is an asshole.
it seems to me that just because you are "family" doesn't mean you have to pretend to care about someone you clearly don't give a shit about.
