Teh crazy continues…

Luckily I do not have a television in the house.  (Well, technically we have a television, it’s just not hooked up to the satellite.  I know, I know…poor husband.  How DOES he manage?    Well, himself just bundles up and trudges to the garage, uphill, 100 yards, through snowdrifts and below freezing weather…oh the unfairness of it all.)

And, yet once again, I digress.

Back to being grateful there is not television on this morning.  I get my news from the internet…both news sites (though NOT Faux News I must add)–as neutral as I can find…and other places around the net.

Yes, I frequent liberally slanted, left-leaning blogs.  I admit it up front.  However, in order to get a balanced, well-rounded opinion (so that I don’t go off half-cocked and sounding like a nut-job who thinks the entire world should think just one way)…I often visit those sites that have, well, a little bit of a right lean.  Hah!  “Little” right lean is a serious misrepresentation.  These guys are freakin’ nuts.  There, I’ve said it.  So much for love and tolerance and sweetness and light.

But…really.

Know what the N. R. of A. has done now???????????

Now they’ve got an ad running castigating the President for having security personnel for his daughters…and denying armed security guards (???) at every school in the nation.  Sort of to the tune of “well, my daughters deserve it…you’re kids don’t.”

Never mind the tiny, itsy, bitsy, little, teeny, weeny detail that this man is the President of the good ol’ U. S. of A.  Never mind the fact that the assassination threats against this president have increased like 400 times over those of any other president in history.  (Don’t quote me on that number…need to go confirm it.  I’ll let you know.)

Never mind the fact that the entire family has security detail everywhere they go.

All this does is start to solidify in people’s minds that the good ol’ N. R. of A. is slowly losing their collective one.  Mind that is.

I can guaran-damn-tee it that silly people like me who think there should be a modicum of sense regarding guns in this country are beginning to get slightly irritated at the antics of the schoolyard bully known as the N. R. of A.

I’m going to try to link to two sites with interesting takes on these topics this morning.  They have done their research (that whole blogger thing of data, facts and whatnot) and I simply don’t have the time right now to be original.

So…if you are so inclined…I suggest you visit these links.

Hopefully those will work.

If not, click on the links on my blogroll for http://www.juanitajean.com and http://www.prospect.org.  They should have the current articles up.

Hasta la vista baby. (ha ha…get it?  Isn’t that what the Terminator says before he blows someone away???  Sick humor.)

About madranchwife

Mother, Mad Ranchwife(as in--at times-- crazy, nutso, loco, off-my-rocker insane), Veterinarian, Physical Therapist, "Liberal, pinko, gay-loving, Subaru-driving Socialist" (as I've been called), proud to be a totally tree-huggin', climate change believin', granola girl environmentalist, ObamaGirl, Pro-Choice (don't even get me started here...), and in my younger days a feminist vegetarian as a result of time spent at CU Boulder (this lasted approximately 14 months, until all the Jimmy Buffett I was listening to caused me to crave a cheeseburger). Now I just get pleasure out of swimming against the stream and ruffling a few feathers here in the wild west state of Wyoming!
