Random Thought June 1, 2013

 

 

Anne Coulter is the Leni Reifenstahl of the GOP

   
   
   

 

It is 2013, right? April 30, 2013

   

*Today’s NaPoWriMo poem was inspired by the following situation:

 

On Saturday, April 27, 2013 held its first integrated prom. Not the first prom ever; apparently they’ve done prom for years. First integrated prom. Ever. Up until then there was a black prom and a white prom. The kids all attend school together, but you know prom just has to be separate because, well, um … you know … um, er …

 


*crickets*

 

Actually one City Council member said the separation had nothing to do with race; it was based on different tastes in music and dance. Um, yeah right.

 

 

BULLSHIT

 

 

Since the proms weren’t actually segregated by the school, nobody’s breaking the law. What law, you ask? You know that little teeny tiny insignificant Brown v. Board of Ed thingy. I mean, my gosh that whole “separate but equal” kerfuffle is from ages ago. Who the hell can remember any of that?

 

The proms have been privately sponsored by parents, by invitation only. Now apparently the black prom was open to everybody but the paleface version was not. But you know, tradition and all. Tradition.

 

And different dancing styles. Nope – still not buying it.

Paul Ryan: Obama Preying On ‘Fear, Envy and Resentment’

   

 

 

 


 

Are you serious with the crap? Is this the political version of “I know you are, but what am I”? Next they’re gonna try to grab Obama’s hand, slap him and say “Why are you hitting yourself? Why are you hitting yourself?” Rethuglicans have been “preying on ‘fear, envy & resentment'” and spurring on divisiveness since before Obama got into office!!!

Grab the nearest book (or website) to you right now. Jump to paragraph 3, second Sentence. Write it in a post.

Bonus: Make up a sentence to follow the first one, but make it go in an entirely different direction that the actual book or website does.

 

THE BOOK:

 

 

THE SENTENCE:

 

For one thing, the expression bullshit is often employed quite loosely – simply as a generic term of abuse, with no very specific literal meaning.

 

MY FOLLOW-UP:

 

I can think of no connotation in which the exclamation of bullshit! could even remotely be construed as a positive or worthy endorsement.

 

THE ACTUAL FOLLOW-UP:

 

For another, the phenomenon itself is so vast and amorphous that no crisp and perspicuous analysis of its concept can avoid being procrustean.
