Michele Bachmann has recently caught my attention. She is hoping to represent the Republican party in the next Presidential Election. So who is Michele Bachmann? Well she is a House Representative from Minnesota. She also has five children, and 23 (yes, twenty-three) foster children. She is very conservative and like most conservatives she is a jackass. Here are some interesting things she has said:
- “Not all cultures are equal.” (…)
- “And what a bizarre time we’re in, when a judge will say to little children that you can’t say the pledge of allegiance, but you must learn that homosexuality is normal and you should try it.” (no judge ever said children should try homosexuality)
- “I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970’s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democrat President Jimmy Carter. And I am not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it is an interesting coincidence.” (swine flu broke out in 1976, under a Republican President)
The more I learn about politics, the more I hate it. These people are beyond stupid. How do these words even come out of your mouth? These days Republicans seem to be much more likely to say something completely asinine and try to pass it off as fact. I am not saying that Democrats never say crazy things, but with Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann on the Republican side they clearly have the edge. It is amazing that these people are picked to lead our country despite the fact that they are some of the most illogical people around. Bachmann, Palin, and Gingrich make the Republican party as a whole look stupid. Even if they all are not stupid, they are stupid by association. Below is a clip from Anderson Cooper 360°.
I’ve been playing a lot of chess lately, mostly because I have nothing to do at work. I also recently watched the HBO documentary on Bobby Fischer. For those of you who do not know who that is – Google him and watch the documentary. He was a great player and he was crazy. If you are interested in playing me my information is listed below.

Apparently it is “news” that Hugh Hefner’s bride-to-be, Crystal Harris, dumped him days before their wedding ceremony. Honestly, what does Hugh expect? He is 85 years old, surrounds himself with beautiful women who are less than a quarter of his age, and he is filthy rich. How does he expect to find love like that? You cannot possibly tell me that the women he dates actually love him. He is old enough to be their great-grandfather. Obviously, it is great for him to be able to mess around with all those beautiful women but he cannot logically expect for them to love him. If he wasn’t rich and did not have the power to make these girls famous would they still be dating him? Not a chance in hell. Harris dumped him because she felt that she could not handle the lifestyle that Hefner leads, especially with all the other women around. I guess that thought only crossed her mind a few days before the wedding? Whatever. In the end this is just celebrity gossip, all of which I really don’t care for. Hef, you’re still the man. You are an 85-year-old pimp, you’re not cut out to be a husband.
Former New York Football Giants wide receiver/special teams player David Tyree has recently stated that same-sex marriage will lead to “anarchy”. I guess I will start by saying I am in favor of gay marriage. I do not particularly care if gay people can get married, my life will go unchanged and so will every other heterosexual’s life. Obviously, it will not be in a church, thus it is not the typical marriage most of us think of. It does not even have to be called marriage, the bottom line is committed gay couples should have the right to the benefits of marriage (http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/marriage-rights-benefits-30190.html). Now going back to Tyree’s comments – first and foremost, anarchy is defined as 1) the absence of government or 2) the absence or denial of any authority or established order. So in Tyree’s mind, if gay people are allowed to marry then chaos will ensue and people will be fighting against the government like they are in Syria and Libya. Obviously he is speaking based on his religious views, and those religious views are making him sound pretty damn stupid. Gay marriage is legal in 5 states in America and those states still function normally. I do not consider myself to be religious and one of the reasons for that is I do not understand how a book written so long ago is supposed to tell me how to live my life today. It is 2011. Times change, people change, and laws need to change. It boggles my mind that gay marriage is consider a political issue. If you really care about the future of America then gay marriage should not be considered an issue at all.

If you have read my “rant” on why I feel Facebook has taken a turn for the worse, then you obviously know how I feel about most of it’s users. The link above is to an article on CNN.com about a woman who got a tattoo of her closest 152 Facebook friends. Honestly, that is probably one of the dumbest things I have read about in a while – exponentially dumber than “Weinergate”. I am not saying that the tattoo looks bad, but the idea behind it is stupid. Personally, I would not get anyone’s face tattooed on me if they would not get mine tattooed on them. And 152 people? I barely have 10 friends, never mind 152. Actually, I wouldn’t even want 152 friends in real life. This goes to show that some people take social networking sites too far. The line between reality and these websites is becoming seriously blurred. The article goes on to talk about other things people have done to pay tribute to their favorite social networking site. There is the Egyptian man who names his child “Facebook”, and then there is the Israeli parents who named their child “Like”. I feel sorry for every person who struggles to live a life outside of their make-believe one on Facebook.
I notice my Weinergate article has been getting a lot of views over the past couple of days. I think that can be attributed to the fact that Rep. Anthony Weiner recently admitted that the lewd picture sent from his Twitter account was indeed a picture of himself. Like I have stated in my previous article, he is beyond stupid for not denying that. He should have denied it until he actually believed that it was not him. I guess the next questions would be now what happens for him? Do people still vote for him? I mean, this does show everyone that he is essentially a creepy pervert. Would I vote for him for President? No. Senate? I think so. As long as his views were in line with mine, I don’t see why not. The reality of it is that he is a regular guy who happens to hold an elected position as his career. Being irresponsible on Twitter has certainly done some irreversible damage, but Americans are pretty forgiving when it comes to famous people screwing up. (Bill Clinton, Michael Vick, etc.)
Now there are multiple women coming forward saying that Weiner was involved in some form of sext messaging/relationship with all of them. It is a little too late for him to use my “deny til you die” strategy, so it should be interesting to see how he handles this. In the mean time, here is a pretty entertaining video of him doing his job.
