then, last week, josh left me stranded on the couch nursing while bill o'reilly was on. it just so happened to be wednesday, so dennis miller was on for his weekly comedic relief of the nation's crazy antics. the biggest topic was why we (the u.s.) cannot use the term "terrorist" even to describe the worst political criminals, but we throw the term "pirate" around like peter pan and the lost boys.
yesterday, it happened again. but this week, a few more stupid mishaps have occurred. first, the drama over miss usa. since when did your personal opinion determine whether or not you win a beauty pageant. and, what attributes qualify perez hilton as a judge in any pageant, other than maybe the drag queen of the year. this has caused a bigger uproar than watching toddlers in tiaras get spray tanned!
next, they discussed a new British study that says obesity is bad for the environment. they interviewed a girl (in her early 20s) who works to prevent childhood obesity who said that obese people who eat more than their body needs are causing others to subsidize them. they discussed how the government in all their love for the earth may choose to tax obese people or credit the physically elite. are you kidding me? how did we get here?
hundreds of years ago, the pilgrims came to america to escape religious persecution and now we are taxing the obese and requiring that you believe in same-sex marriage. really? REALLY?
i told josh watching these channels may cause me to loose my mind. well, at least what is left after birthing 3 children in 4 years. if i watched this stuff every day, i would be huddled in the fetal position waiting for the world to implode. am i the only momma out there who chooses not the be politically aware?
