Sorry I haven't been keeping in touch. I have been pretty busy in an attempt to keep my brain from exploding with my office struggles while campaigning for the Obama Biden ticket as often as possible. Which unfortunately isn't as often as I would like.
Florida is a swing state and I think (hope) democrats have learned a lesson assuming votes don't count. Registration ended in the state this past Monday and I am proud to say I got every single person that works for me to register. Obviously it is inappropriate for me to campaign at work but I think my Obama/Biden tote bags, bumper stickers and screen saver is a dead give away who I am supporting. I just think it is important that people use their voice in government no matter which candidate they support. It does matter. Anyone in Florida that witness the hanging chad debacle should be convinced of that.
There are also several amendments on the Sunshine state ballot that are very important. I have spoken of Amendment Two and the fucktards that want to get the wording in the state constitution that marriage is between a man and a woman. If you want my opinion on that, you need to click the link because I simply don't have the strength to rag on ignorant fools today.
Well, maybe I do a little but I have another issue more pressing. A fucking forward that I received not once but twice yesterday.
It went like this:
As I was listening to a news program last night, I watched in horror as Barack Obama made the statement with pride. . .'we are no longer a Christian nation; we are now a nation of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, . .' As with so many other statements I've heard him (and his wife) make, I never thought I'd see the day that I'd hear something like that from a presidential candidate in this nation. To think our forefathers fought and died for the right for our nation to be a Christian nation--and to have this man say with pride that we are no longer that. How far this nation has come from what our founding fathers intended it to be.
I hope that each of you will do what I'm doing now--send your concerns, written simply and sincerely, to the Christians on your email list. With God's help, and He is still in control of this nation and all else, we can show this man and the world in November that we are, indeed, still a Christian nation!
Please pray for our nation!
I am ashamed that I have such stupid acquaintances.
For a brief moment I considered responding and pointing out their ignorance but what would be the point? If they forward this shit, they believe this shit and I am much better off moving them to the people I will avoid at all cost and delete mail from list.
Did Obama say this? Kinda. What he said was that we are not JUST a nation of Christians.
Ummm, OH MY GOD..HELP! CHICKEN LITTLE ALERT! THE SKY IS FALLING!!
But, wait...were we ever a Christian nation and I missed the memo? Silly me thought when our nation was founded the forefathers specifically put the big no fucking way on paper about an established religion.
Oh yeah, here it is: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...
As a matter of fact, they weren't all Christians.
I for one would never vote for a president that thought Christianity should take precedence over any other religious belief. Kinda shits all over the "all men are created equal" thing..doesn't it?
