YES! It’s Friday and the beginning of a long weekend, so everyone should be in a good mood. I know I am :D. I have been really busy this week making and shipping candy so I apologize for not having a story for you, but I will next week. In the meantime, I have a really fun weekend planned which is sure to include a lot booze, drugs, hookers, music and maybe a little silly putty…but not necessarily in that order. Anyway, I’m just excited to relax. Yeah, that’s how I relax, don’t judge.
Did anyone watch the Republican National Convention last night? Let me start by saying that I’m not on either side anymore. I’m disgusted by everyone in politics and I’m disgusted with all the lies and never knowing what to really believe. But do the Republicans always have to bring god and family into every freakin’ thing? You know, god and family aren’t for everyone. They have this way of making it seem as though if you don’t believe in god and family, you’re not even worth acknowledging. Quite frankly, most people shouldn’t even be starting their own families anyway. What’s the divorce rate again? Oh, yes, I believe it’s over 50%, so this whole “family” thing isn’t really working out anyway, so why value it so much? It’s not even a solid institution for most of the people that do it. And anyone that relies on religion that much, just frightens me.
But you know my favorite quote so far from the Republican side was from genius Todd Akin, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down”. Here’s a picture to illustrate:
It’s so dumb, it’s funny.
Anyway, I hope all of you have an excellent, fun-filled weekend! Enjoy the fruits of your labor, whatever those fruits are :P
