I get so sick of this crap.

Maybe they need to take some advice;


Why do the Jews embrace the Old Testament? Because it justifies killing people. Why do Muslims embrace the Koran? Because it justifies killing people. Christians supposedly embrace the New Testament (which justifies peace) but most of them choose to ignore those teachings. People ask why I don’t believe in religion. Watch the video again and maybe you will figure it out.




With a big side of xenophobia.

The words batshit crazy barely begin to describe MN Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann. However, a competitor for the title of looniest loon in Minnesota has emerged to take on US Representative Keith Ellison.

Lynne Torgerson is running for US Rep. in district 5.To spread the word, she has created a website with her platform and views for all the world to see. Among these views is a healthy dose of ranting against Muslims in general, and Keith Ellison in particular.

Now, with all due respect, America, and its people,  should be lauded for its goal of promoting to public office and other high ranks, people of color,  women, minorities, etc.  However, quite frankly, in our zeal, we simply went too far with Keith Ellison.  Keith Ellison simply is not a proper person to have in our federal government.  I think it is interesting that Keith Ellison, in the past year or so, introduced a bill entitled “Global Peace.”  “Global.”  I think that word is telling.  Globalization of Islam.  It is also my understanding that when people of the Muslim faith use the word peace, that “peace” to them means the elimination of Christians and Jews.

Good stuff, right? Try reading it without hearing it in a monotone, 4th-grader-reading-in-front-of-his-class voice. It simply can’t be done. The entire website is written at a 4th grade level, with almost no compound sentences and very simple words. If this woman somehow passed the MN state bar exam, it must have been read to her and her answers dictated.

Is there something in the water in MN? Maybe a little too much lye left in the lutefisk?


It seems to get worse every year. Businesses, schools, and media outlets go crazy about this magical thing called “Holiday”.

I have what I would call a low tolerance for BS. So this whole idea does not sit well with me. I realize that not everyone celebrates Christmas, but for the love of all that is holy, please be honest about it. We aren’t decorating trees at the mall for Hanukkah, we aren’t preparing a delicious spiral-sliced ham for Ramadan, and we don’t cover houses, businesses, and public buildings in strings of seizure-inducing flashing lights for Kwanza.

There has been a lot said by some notable right wingers about a “war on Christmas” (why does everything have to be a war to these people?). I personally don’t think there’s any kind of  organized effort to marginalize Christmas. What I see is PC feel-good crap run amok. It’s an effort that probably started in the meeting room of a fortune 500 company’s HR department and spread like a virus to all corners of business and media. The same minds that brought us “Holiday” belong to people who have given us corporate buzz-words like “right-sizing” and “synergize”.

I’m tired of having my intelligence insulted by some PC meme telling me I’m shopping for “Holiday” preasents, attending a “Holiday” parade, and drinking 180 proof eggnog to be able to tolorate the relatives who come visit every “Holiday”.  I’m tired of commercials, which now seem to start in September, advertising a “Holiday” sale coming up with evergreen branches, jingle bells, and Christmas ornaments in the background. You’re not fooling anyone - just come out and say it: you want us to buy useless crap to give to people for Christmas. If you’re going to exploit a religious holiday for monetary gain, at least have the courtesy to mention the name of said holiday. I promise no one (important) will be offended.


Rant off.
