"Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home--but not for housing. They are strong for labor--but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage--the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all--but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine--for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing--but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it."
-Harry S. Truman

I have been receiving numerous phone calls from Republican groups lobbying for my money to support the anti-Obamacare campaign and whatever other dickish things that god-awful party supports. 

1) I fucking hate the Republican party. I abhor it vehemently. I support women's rights, gay rights, minority rights. I support legal abortions, marriage equality, immigration with an easier path to citizenship. All these things because I believe in promoting humanity, not oppressing and subjugating anyone. 

2) WHY would I donate money to stop Obamacare? I love Obamacare! Sure, it has its problems, like any government plan would, but um... if you claim to love Americans, how can you even begin to fight against something that protects their health? Makes zero sense, you idiot Republicans.

Seriously, stop calling me. I have no idea how you got my numbers in the first place, but I will die before I ever support your campaigns of inequality/misogyny/bigotry/racism.

fuck off,

ps no, I'm not a Democrat. I'm a human being with a conscience.

Car Owner Once More!

"You are not your job, you're not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis. You are all singing, all dancing crap of the world." 
-Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

While I may not be the car I drive, it feels damn good to have a car to drive once again! Welcome to my life, you cutie little black prius! 

Tom and I flew up to Waxahachie Saturday to see the family and to get me in some wheels. Overall, a highly successful weekend. I hate being far away from my family; it's hard and it sucks. But now since I have this fuel efficient vehicle, hopefully we can travel up there more. :) Plus, their move to Waxahachie cut off an hour of driving time, at least, for us. 

We just made plans to go to the State Fair of Texas on October 5th to eat everything fried. Mooo.
