Aspie with Attitude

Sure, I'm just another Southern Recovering Alcoholic NPR- and Sweet-Tea Addicted Comic Mom with Asperger's in the SFV, but I can tell you now that I don't necessarily fit the stereotype.

While The Masses Watch and Cheer

What happens when a student is arrested for asking a question? Mainstream media automatically try to paint him as a kook, of course. Hey, did you see that guy's other videos? They are like, really weird! And he dares to say that celebrity news is not worthy. Why, why, he probably doesn't even watch Oprah!

And so the lemmings are once again sidetracked into an issue that's not so important from an issue that's very important: John Kerry did not a thing to help him, either showing blatent disregard or ignorance for the U.S. Constitution. Then, Kerry had the gall to state that it wasn't any of his concern, that the police, those always benevolent folks funded by federal tax money, must be right. Well, until the police decide to arrest Kerry, which they probably won't, being that he is part of the elite in this country. I don't care if the student was dressed as Coco the Clown, he asked some excellent questions. As our country becomes communist, the crowd merely watches and cheers. So do illegally elected Senators, by the way. Some of my friends who call themselves liberals still have those "Kerry/Edwards, for a new America" bumper stickers. Maybe they should mark out the "c" in America and replace it with "Amerika."

Here's an excellent analysis of the situation by a true patriot, Paul Craig Roberts:

You Think We're Not Living In A Police State?

Check out this story. Then tell me that we're not living in a police state. A McDonald's worker's arrest because a hamburger was oversalted is amazing. It sounds almost as though it's a story in the satirical "Onion" publication. I hope that this girl fights the charges and the police officer is dismissed from his job. But probably, he'll receive a promotion, laugh at the situation with his buddies, and not give one thought to the girl who will now have an arrest record because a burger was oversalted. As bizarre as this story is, it should make every red-blooded American (any of those left?) stand up and fight. But then again, it's so much easier to watch American Idol.

Another Reason Not To Vote For John Edwards

I really wish John Edwards weren't a socialist. I'd like to vote for him. Really, I would. After all, he's from North Carolina. And his wife seems nice enough. But come on, mandatory health care, for everyone? Whether you want it or not?

You can read all about it at this story, but the bottom line is that far, far too many people believe that health care is a human right. I was talking with an otherwise intelligent woman the other night, someone I've always admired, who told me just that. She's over 60, which is supposed to mean that someone is wise, but the fact that people can't see that insurance and health care in general is a HUGE privilege that only those of us born in the past few decades have been lucky enough to enjoy shows me that socialism is all around us, and, unfortunately, gaining ground.

What if I don't want a mammogram? Tough cookies, according to John Edwards. What if I don't want to have my children immunized or checked for "mental health" by a government expert? Health care for all means all, whether you want it or not. And not having the freedom to decide, to choose and purchase your own health care, if you wish to have any (and some people do not want insurance) is one of the fundamental rights of living in a free country. John Edwards would like to change that and make his particular brand of health care, financed by the many pharmaceutical companies that support him, mandatory for everyone.

That's one of the MANY reasons I'm supporting Ron Paul.
