Ann Coulter Has Lost It

Yes, it is now official, Ann Coulter has lost her mind.  It is clearly evident that in an effort to stay relevant, she will do or say anything, no matter how outrageous. just so she is not forgotten by the wave of Republican't crazies who are running for President.

GOP Debate take aways

After watching the GOP Debate tonight from the Reagan Library I have a few observations;

  • Michelle Bachmann is no longer the craziest of the candidates, that now goes to Perry, Bachmann is now just VP of bat sh!t crazy
  • Rick Santorum has a lot of kids and a lot of bad ideas
  • Mitt Romney is correct, Tea Party does not require you to carry a card, cards, like reading, is bad
  • Rick Perry says Social Security is a Ponzi scheme and that science should investigate whether science is actually science
  • Herman Cain will never be elected nor nominated, he's being quietly marginalized by his fellow Republicans
  • Ron Paul thinks America needs to take air conditioners out of the Green Zone and a fence will keep Americans locked in, instead of illegal immigrants out.  In other words, Huh?!?!?
  • Newt Gingrich is still rewriting history to make himself out to be a hero and hasn't got an ice cube's chance
  • And finally, together none of these people are strong enough to be a serious threat to Obama gaining a second term
  • There is a sad section of people in this country that are excited about Texas executing 243 people since Rick Perry took office
It is true that America needs jobs, and it is incumbent upon President Obama to help make them a reality, but with Republican leadership like these people running to take him on, it will be hard to get anything done.  It is impossible to reason with unreasonable people.  None of these people are offering any new ideas, or are able to actually lead.  Other than Perry, I don't see either of them being able to make that call that President Obama did to send troops into a sovereign nation without notification to kill an enemy of the state.  I know Rick Perry will do it, Rick Perry seems to be amped up TO kill.

Reality Bites

Has it really come to this?  How can you not be sick of all of these "reality shows" that feature nothing but "unreal conflict" by "unreal people" in "unreal situations"?  I don't care if it is The Jersey Shore, or Real Housewives of (from wherever), all we see is people who are put into these pseudo "realistic" settings and are prompted to stir up mess.  I am plugged into Twitter and Face Book and I read all of the posts from people who talk about NeNe or whomever acting a fool at some trendy restaurant or how Shaunie said what to Tami and how vested these fans are in the lives of these women who are ACTING! Maybe it is too boring to live our own lives or even watch real people live their's, but to sit for an hour at a time and watch people call each other bitches and have cat fights at the drop of a hat in club can't be the best entertainment you can find, can it?
For years I have heard, from women, that Playboy magazine and publications like it, are exploitative of women.  I have heard mothers say that they would never allow their daughters to be video vixens or want their daughters to watch videos or even see those magazines, and rightly so.  Yet I KNOW for a fact that some of those same women will sit and watch these so called reality shows WITH their daughters and love doing so.  I can't imagine any self respecting parent from when I was growing up, looking forward to or allowing their baby girls to aspire to be a centerfold model.  When I was in school, and it was not all THAT long ago, young girls aspired to make something of THEMSELVES.  They wanted to be doctors, lawyers, business owners, business executives, government employees, or whatever.  For the most part girls aspired to be independent and successful. Did they all achieve those goals?  No, not many of us do hit all of our goals in life.  But the key is to have goals to shoot for.  If by watching "Real Housewives", or "Basketball Housewives", our young ladies and little girls think the best way to get ahead is to marry a "baller", or a "playah" and drive a fly car, live in a big house, drink champagne and basically become a kept woman, then there is something seriously wrong.  Don't get me wrong, true love is a special thing and yes, it does happen that athletes do find special people that are real and will love them sincerely.  For some it is not just about the money, but far too often we hear and read stories where it isn't about love either.
