Apparently this isn’t a joke. Tennessee has made it illegal for shocking or offensive images that could cause emotional distress to be posted on the internet. I don’t even know what to say about this. You guys are fucked in the head. That’s about all I got. The governor actually signed this into law… an elected official. Well suck my dick and call me Sally this is just absurd. Fuckin’ twilight zone shit down there, they can just ignore the First Amendment completely and the only thing we say is “jesus those people are stupid”.
Just read this great article that provided me with some, I’m assuming, legitimate data for something I’ve considered many times: the quality of a democracy depends on the education level of the average voter. My thoughts are usually more in the form of “why are there so many god damn retards out there?” There’s an actual graph of the relationship between gov’t quality and avg. education, but here’s an excerpt:
In order to evaluate the actions of politicians, voters need to be able to process the available information and understand the impact of the actions of elected officials on their welfare. Voters unable to process information and make rational decisions are as ineffective as uninformed voters. Winston Churchill, who had a dismal view on voters’ ability to process information, once said: “the best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter”.
When we’ve got Mike Huckabee–a legit candidate in 2008–saying “[abortion] transcends all of the political issues”, then we’ve got fuckin’ problems. Huckabee, as much as I don’t wanna admit it, is obviously a pretty smart dude. But do you think he actually believes that bullshit? Heeellllll no. But there are PLENTY of people in this country that do… and he’ll gladly scoop those votes when he needs them. I mean seriously. Not the economy. Not education. I’d even accept fuckin’ airport security over this shit. Abortion! But… what are ya gonna do?
It’s hard not to feel depressed about all this. I mean I regularly bitch about the bullshit politicians do, but the reason they vote in lockstep over every single partisan issue is because that’s how they’ll get re-elected. The political process isn’t dangerous, it’s expected. What’s dangerous is the amount of people who vote for someone based solely on their party-affiliation, or their position on one or two issues. Down in Alabama, Billy Bob doesn’t know jack shit about the Dodd-Frank Act. But you can bet your sweet ass the second he finds out his district’s rep wants to close down all the Chic-fil-A’s in the state, he’ll be voting for the other guy.
Just remembered this video… laughing at the beginning and screaming at the end:
Dimepiece at 2:15 tho… that stutter is cool with me cutie.
Well I’m gonna be completely honest here. Ain’t shocked in the least by what this guy is admitting to right now.
- Has had online relationships with at least 6 women in the last 3 years. Word
- Never met any of the women. Ok, I’ll believe that
- Will not lay out what happened in the relationships. Good move.
I am on the other hand loving this little part. The reporters are hounding him now for the age of the women, saying these girls were only a few years older than his kids. Ummm… I’m gonna go ahead and say he’s prolly not tryin’ to swap dirty talk with a 40 year-old housewife. If anything that’s the most relieving part of this whole thing. Hey guys, at least the bitches weren’t old right?
Best quotes from the whole press conference, both happened as he’s walking off stage:
- Were you fully erect or flaccid in the photograph?
- Do you plan to support Governor Schwarzenegger’s love child?
Let a player play.
