Least I Could Do

Written by dee32693 on March 25, 2010

Rant by a Web-Artist



There’s little in life that scares me, or has me worried (aside from Vomit, Choking and Ninja Leprechauns) but the current political climate does both of those things.

Some would call the debate going in the US ‘heated’ or ‘impassioned’. I call it dangerous.

You can argue a point with someone without hating them. You can disagree with everything they say without throwing a brick through their window.

Can’t you?

Look at someone like Glenn Beck, who is so full of spite and anger, and incites his viewers into a frenzy. On paper, the Tea Party Movement is a peaceful group who opposes government spending. In reality, many Tea Party Movement members are extremists filled with hate who are on their way to becoming vigilantes, attacking anyone on an opposing side. You also have Al Sharpton, who will use any tragedy to his own advantage.

I’ve listened to senators, congressmen and governors say things I wouldn’t utter in while in a drunken stupor in a bar.

It should be noted that I place the blame on both sides of this latest row.

The worst part of all of this, is that the majority of what people are slinging is not based on facts, but instead on assumptions, hearsay and whatever hate-speak is being published/produced as ‘news’.

This needs to be stopped before it gets worse. A country should be led by debate, facts and bi-partisanship.

Not a mob carrying signs and pitchforks.

- Because I can.

Quote of the Day

“It might seem I don't think our country's so great,
But intolerance, bigotry, greed's what I hate.
Most folks are honest and decent and true,
Peaceful, compassionate, good through and through.
That's what it means to be red, white, and blue,
And if you don't think so fuck you”
- America, by Stephen Lynch


The End

It was worse in the 19th century.

Chameleon said: This might be irrelevant, but apparently the Texas Board of Education tried to cut Thomas Jefferson out from their history textbooks, and whitewash or minimalize coverage of the roles of ethnic minorities in American history. Am I the only one who finds that kind of depressing?


Why'd they try to cut Jefferson?


Apparently some of his beliefs or policies or whatever don't "fit" with Texan beliefs, or something like that. Kind of like how a lot of bio textbooks teach Creationism instead of evolution. :p
