Why Do “Atheists” Get So Mad At Religious People?

the problem with some christians Why Do Atheists Get So Mad At Religious People?
Well, if you’re an atheist, and I am, the answers are obvious.  However, this little rant isn’t for atheists.  It’s for religious people.  Mainly Christians because there are just simply more of them and most of my experiences with religious people have been with Christians and trying very hard to tolerate the stupid, shallow things that they do.  But, that is not to say that all of them are shallow and stupid.  And, that you rarely hear about other religions doing terribly stupid things unless it’s a Christian bashing on Muslims because of their irrational fears of 9/11.

So why do we get so mad at religious people?  I have religious friends, I love them, I think they’re all mental but for the most part good people.  In fact most if not all of them I would consider to be far better people than myself.  So why do I get so mad at the shit they do?  Well, there are many reason, I will try to hit on the top issues that lead to the frustration that then leads to the anger. Also, please keep in mind, this is rant.  There is no specific order to this list of reasons and explanations.

First up, is the inherent hypocrisy of most religious people.  The whole concept of most religion is based on status.  That status is, I am better than you because I believe in the one true god.  Now, religious people can deny this all they want but the simple fact is that it’s true.  Their is an arrogance that comes with religion.  Specially Christians.  How many times have you heard or as a Christian, have said, “As a Christian…”  For example, “As a Christian I don’t smoke.”  Or, “As a Christian I don’t believe in per-marital sex.”

A long time ago I was selling cars.  I was trying to sell a car to a Christian family.  Their little two year old was wearing a Rugrats, Burger King crown cardboard hat.  To help break the ice, I comment, “How cute, my friends son, loves the Rugrats.”

The Husband responds, “As Christians, we don’t let him watch that show.”

So, with that one sentence he set the tone.  He let me know he’s a Christian and that makes him better than my friend.  It also says that he’s an insensitive, arrogant  and believes he is better than those lesser mortals that allow their kids to watch such filth.  It also says that he is a hypocritical idiot for allowing his kid to wear the hat but not watch the show.  You see, the kid was crying, to appease him, they gave him the hat.  So it also tells me, that their faith is so weak, they will break with their beliefs over something as simple as their baby crying simply because the spoiled brat doesn’t get his way.  This kid is probably in his late teens by now and I wonder if he turned out to be just like his douchebag parents.  I would love to talk more about this douche later but I am thinking I will save it for another rant.  In fact, it’s quite possible I have already ranted about this jackhole and the many others I have encountered over the years.

Hypocrisy comes in many forms with religious people.  Most of all it comes down their very core beliefs.  With Christians, hypocrisy is supposed to be a bad thing.  Yet, we constantly see them be hypocrites in almost everything they do and say.  For example, Christians will bad mouth the Westboro Baptist Church.  I don’t understand this at all.  The WBC isn’t telling lies from the Bible?  It’s not making stuff up.  It is simply doing what nearly every single Christian does.  It is picking and choosing what they want to believe in and while simply ignoring the rest.

In all the times I have gone to church in my life I have never heard the priest or preacher talk about Ezekiel 23:19.  If you don’t know it, it’s referring to two sisters as whores who crave men with cocks the size of donkey’s whose semen is just as plentiful.  The religious will make excuses for this.   They say that it’s taken out of context.  It’s not taken out of context it.  The whole chapter is about what whores they are because they like dudes with big junk.  It’s sexist with a with a touch of beastiality to add to the level of class the Bible was written with.  Churches tend to ignore the bad stuff in the Bible and showcase the good things.  The WBC, uses the same damn book you all preach from and you’re going to criticize them?  Could you be any more hypocritical?!

My point is that if you’re a Christian, you probably pick and choose what you want to believe in the Bible based on nothing more than what you already agree with and simply rationalize or flat out ignore the things you don’t agree with.  It’s really that simple.  Just accept the fact that being a hypocrite is not going to get you into heaven.  Accept it, own it and hopefully learn from it.

Next up, preaching.  Stop it already.  You want to preach, go to church.  Here’s another Bible quote that Christians love to ignore that really frustrates us.

Mathew 6:5-8
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

I have had Christians tell me that I am taking this out of context.  That Jesus isn’t saying this to Christians, he is saying this to Jews.  So, it’s the Jews that are hypocrites than?  Or are they heathens?  I guess it all depends on the Bible you chose to read from and the crap you choose to believe in.  It’s obvious the point that was being made here, don’t pray in public, keep that to yourself.  Jesus wasn’t teaching a history class, he was obviously telling all of you in as polite a way as possible to shut the fuck up already.  Take hint!

This next thing is part of the whole prayer in public that really, really bothers atheists.  Thanking god every time successfully take a healthy shit if is so offensive on so many levels.  And, by shit I mean, God didn’t help you score that touchdown.  God didn’t help you win the Super Bowl.  God didn’t help you make it through the day.  He didn’t keep you safe in that accident.  He didn’t keep you from catching that virus.  He didn’t heal you.  Stop with that shit already.  It’s ridiculous, selfish and completely arrogant.

Every time you do that, what are you really saying is that all the work you and everyone else put into you completing that touchdown pass or catching that TD pass had nothing to do with your natural talent and all the hard work you put into your training.  Praying to win a game, win an award or anything else like that is so fucking anti-christian you might as well, just tattoo 666 on your stupid fucking head and praise the devil.  Prayer wasn’t intended to pray for yourself, it was intended to pray for others.

If you’re praying that you’re team wins, it means that you’re also praying that God makes the other team lose.  When you pray that to get healthy, you’re being a selfish asshole.  When you get better and you thank god for that what you’re really saying, is “Thanks dear Lord for making me more special than all those poor suffering bastards that you let die for whatever fuckall “mysterious” reasons you had.”  You’re not any better then anyone else.  You’re just a human being that got well when other didn’t.  Sometimes there are medical reasons for your recovery and sometimes there just aren’t.  It doesn’t mean that because you don’t get it, your god did it.  A great example of what I mean about this can be heard in a song titled Sam’s Mom by Tim Minchin.

Stop lying about your religion.  Stop making excuses for it.  Just accept the fact that you use the Bible to justify whatever crappy shit you want to believe in.  Some people are assholes like Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty that uses the Bible to promote racism, sexism, bigotry, hate and homophobia.  Or, Pat Robertson, of the 700 Club fame, who loves to do the same.  Just accept that you’re a hypocrite and stop making excuses for you’re flawed religion.  Just because there are good things in the Bible doesn’t make it a great book.  There are more stupid, insane things in that book then there are good things.  You’re beliefs are just simply ridiculous.  Just because you choose to believe in the more positive things in the book doesn’t make you a good person.

So, if you’re a good person, it’s because you’re a good person.  If you feel that you need a book to tell you how to be a good person, you’re not really a good person.

I am reminded of this quote, Morality is doing what is right, no matter what you are told. Religion is doing what you are told, no matter what is right.
attr. H. L. Mencken.

Oh there are so many outrageous annoying things that the religious do.  Killing and making excuses for killing has got to be one of the worst crimes of religion.  It takes all shapes and forms and it makes all kinds of excuses for doing so.  From an eye to an eye to Jesus talking about how he will return and kill lots of people including the children of those people.  Seriously, Jesus plans on killing children.  And, this is the guy you are trying to tell me is all about love and hope?  Please stop with your bullshit excuses.  It says, right in the Bible, thou shalt not kill.  It was so important, God magically etched it in stone and made it one of the ten commandments.

The Redskins Controversy: Whatever Happened To Tolerence In America?

We have got to learn that sometimes, some people are going to be offended by things. I am offended by a lot of things. Cruelty to animals, child abuse, murder, rape, pedophiles to name a few. The fact that an NFL team is called the Redskins is so not offensive to me or to anyone I’ve ever met. The only people I have heard complain about the name are some uptight white people. Not saying they are bad people. They are good people who have just lost their ability to tolerate. Oh! And, I did see one native American express his offense at the teams name. (I am sure there is more than one) But, I have seen countless native Americans speak up that they do not find the name offensive and yet well meaning white liberals refuse to accept this because as usual, they think they know best.

Please, don’t get me wrong. If you have read an article on my blog you know I am not some crazy right wing conservative. I vote democrat all the time because the republican party is being run by absolutely the most crazy people on the face of the planet. I mean “legitimate rape”? Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell? Crazy, simplistic and shallow human beings. Seriously? These people should be fired for their ignorance and lies. But, in this case, I truly believe that white liberal America really needs to get over this whole politically correct thing. They are taking it to the extremes and it’s just ridiculous. Even the best ideas fail when taking to the extremes.

Where do we draw the line with this politically correct issue? I am not religious but I always found the word Jew to be offensive because to me it always sounded like a racist way to refer to a Jewish person. There are millions of people that fear spiders, should we go ahead and ban them from TV and film because just the sight of them can cause very serious distress for some people? Just the sight of then can put some people into a panic attack. What about them? What about clowns? I know people that are terrified of them. Should they not be allowed to exist anymore? I am really offended by the word “Bitch”. I even cringe when I hear some call a dog a bitch. I just don’t like that word. Because it offends me and I am sure it offends others as well, is that enough to get the word banned? Is that what who we are now?

george shuba whose handshake heralded racial tolerance in baseball 300x156 The Redskins Controversy: Whatever Happened To Tolerence In America?What about tolerance? Doesn’t that matter anymore? It used to be that we were told to be tolerant of others. The black community preached tolerance in the 50’s and 60’s. Gay’s preached it in the 70’s and 80’s. And, I agree with tolerance. We all need it. It’s what makes us great. And, it seems lately that if we don’t talk a certain way it’s going to offend someone and because of that we have to change the way we talk. I am not saying that we should walk around and be offensive as possible. We should strive to be better. But, most of all we should really strive to be tolerant of the things we don’t like and don’t understand.

I used to be a smoker, I quit over a year ago and it had nothing to do with all the cry baby non-smokers and some of the many flat out lying commercials with misleading facts about smoking and second smoke. It wasn’t the constant shaming in the media or the stares I would get while even smoking in my own car. It was simply a health issue. I really enjoyed smoking, I would smoke again if I could do it and not be killing myself or making myself stink so bad. But, it made me really learn that we’ve seemed to have lost something in this country, the ability to be tolerant. If we don’t like it, we seem to be against it and anyone that disagrees is horrible. Well, that isn’t always true. Some things are going to offend us and we really need to get back to that place where we can learn to live with one another’s inconsistencies and flaws.

If the team name offends you, then don’t watch their games or maybe root for the other team. Just because you find the name offensive doesn’t mean that I have to. I am really offended that someone like Michael Vick is allowed to play football. The man killed dogs literally with his bare hands. He made a flimsy apology and now he’s a Quarterback for the NY Jet’s. Every time I see them, I root for them to lose! The man KILLEED dogs! It’s one of the signs of an up and coming serial killer and he is allowed to play in the NFL. Adrian Peterson beat his 4 year old with a stick leaving injuries to his back, leg’s and testicles. Testicles! And, there are those that openly support this horrible person. Another player (Ray Rice) hit his wife so f’ing hard she went flying half way across an elevator, was knocked unconscious and was then dragged out of the elevator by him and there the players union is defending him! These things are offensive. What doesn’t offend me is that some people are offended by name that is not meant to offend. There is no malicious intent behind the name.

I don’t agree with the KKK, or the Westboro Baptist Church but I do believe in their right to exist. Freedom of speech not only protects the speech we like but also the speech we don’t. Also, I like to keep the crazy in identifiable groups so I know where they are. I know my opinion is unpopular and I am sure to be slammed for it but enough is enough. I know that my ideology isn’t flawless and my opinion has some holes in it that I am sure some are going to point out to me. However, it’s my opinion. I can’t help what offends other people. I can work only work on what offends me. Because, it is my problem, I am the one that is offended. That does not and should not give me the right to tell someone else what to say or how to express themselves in every single case. Sometimes, I just have to practice tolerance of the things other people say and do that offend me.

The Best Of The Fall Season!

I haven’t seen every show this fall.  But, I have broken my rule this fall TV season and started watching some TV shows before the season has ended.  I normally won’t watch a new show until it’s first season is over because too many times I get hooked on a show and then some dumbass executive cancels it.  Some good example of this are, Surface, Invasion, Firefly, and the one that killed me.  The one that bothered me the most was Miracles.

miracles 300x412 The Best Of The Fall Season!Miracles (Available on DVD thankfully) was one of the best TV shows ever.  It got cancelled because the executives at ABC at the time were complete morons.  The was  preempted almost every week it was supposed to air.  ABC had breaking news all the time over the Iraq war so anytime someone farted in Iraq ABC went live.  These idiots even preempted the show for a special about Michael Jackson.  This was long before he had died, he was just crazy MJ back then and ABC decided yet again to air Miracles at a later date.  Show could gain an audience and they cancelled it.  The irony is that it’s final airing, over 5 million viewers.  ABC still cancels it.

So, I don’t watch TV shows in their first season.  I am not going to get hooked and left hanging because some idiots that believe if a show isn’t an immediate hit, it must be cancelled.  If that were true some of most beloved shows would have never maid it, little shows, like Cheers and Night Court to name a few.

However I have been a little lax this year and last.  This year I have decided to rant about the new shows I really like or that I think have some potential.  My hope is that the 2.5 people that actually read this article will give these shows a try and maybe tell their friends about them.  TV Shows don’t have long, some shows after their first airing are already on the bubble for not getting high enough ratings.

So here’s some new shows worth look.


forever cover 600x243 The Best Of The Fall Season!Forever

It airs Tuesday nights on ABC.  It’s about a guy that for some unknown reason has been alive for over 200 years.  He can die but he comes back immediately and always in water for some reason.  Now he is a medical examiner for the city of New York and helps a detective solve crimes.  It’s Castle if Castle was more serious, never died and wasn’t as goofy.  And, I mean goofy in a good way, Castle is one of my most favorite shows EVER!

I really love this show so far.  It’s got smart characters, good stories and good mysteries.  It would be shame is this show got cancelled.

how to get away with murder 600x300 The Best Of The Fall Season!
How to get away with Murder

It airs Thursdays on ABC.  It’s about a college professor who is also a high price defense attorney.  The acting is great, the stories are a little hard to follow at least the first episode was.  It goes from present time to future time or maybe the future flashes are current time and the present time is the past, I don’t know?  As I said, it’s a little confusing and you have to really pay attention or you won’t even get what’s going on.  I was glued to my TV watching it on my DVR and shit happened a couple of times and I had to think, “Wait, who was that again?”  But, still the show has some potential.  I love the main character, she’s flawed and some of those flaws aren’t really good flaws.  Another good show you should check out.

bad judge 600x330 The Best Of The Fall Season!
Bad Judge

Just watched the show last night and I have to say I was at first disappointed when I realized it was only a half hour show.  That worries me and I will tell you why.  The idea is too good for a half hour show.  This happened to me last year when I saw the first episode of The Crazy Ones.  I knew it was going to get cancelled.  The shows concepts need a full hour, you can’t pack it all into 22 minutes and the heart of the show gets lost.  I even said so on their Facebook page after watching it the first time.  Sure enough, cancelled.  This show, same thing.  It’s a good show, worth watching, funny, witty but the themes need an hour.  If NBC doesn’t change it, it’s going to get cancelled.  But, we’re talking about NBC here, the once great network is run by complete morons so I am positive they will do everything possible to make sure all their good shows are cancelled.  It airs Thursday nights.


scorpion 600x337 The Best Of The Fall Season!
Scorpion

I watched the first two episodes and loved it.  It was action packed, entertaining and both episodes had me shaking my head wonder how they were over so soon?  The show just flies by.  It’s about a group of 20 somethings who are off the charts smart.  They are hired by Homeland Security to help solve problems.  The action can be over the top sometimes but you can’t help but suspend disbelief and just go along for the ride. Fun, show with heart.  Highly recommend.  It airs Tuesdays on CBS.

These are just the ones that I have seen so far.  I am looking forward to seeing The Mysteries of Laura, Houdini, Black-ish, Stalker, Madam Secretary, NCIS: New Orleans, and Z Nation.  However, I will probably just wait and download the whole seasons when they are over or wait for the DVD’s

If there’s a show you like, talk about it, tell people.  Specially if it’s a new show.  If you don’t talk about it or don’t hear others talking about it, it will be cancelled.  So even if you don’t like the shows I mentioned, there must be some new shows you do like, talk about them.  Set your DVR’s even if you don’t watch them.  How to get away with Murder was the most DVR’d show this fall season.  They actually track that stuff, creepy, I know.  But, what’s on your DVR matters.

Once Again Republican Hypocrisy Rears It’s Ugly Head!

There’s a long list of things that make democrats and republicans hypocrites.  However, republicans seem to excel at it!  It’s as if they really do take pride in being known as the stupid party.  Seriously, some of them feel so strongly about being the stupid party they created a subset called the Tea Party.  These are for ignorant fools who feel the religious right isn’t extreme and hateful enough.  So it comes as no surprise to me when I wake this morning to see that republicans are once again attacking Obama.

In case you missed “Lattegate”.  While President Obama was exiting Air Force One he offended conservatives everywhere.  Not a hard thing to do actually.  All you need to do is be black, poor, a women, on welfare, unemployed, use facts, understand advanced concepts, go to college, to name a few.  Today, we add saluting while holding a cup of coffee.  Yes, that’s what has republicans in an outrage this morning.  It’s not the unemployment rate.  It’s not the fact that we’re dropping bombs again either, it’s all about a fucking cup of coffee.

Now, I will admit that when I saw the video of the president saluting with coffee cup, I thought, “That was kinda tacky.” and then I went back to scrolling through Facebook while sitting shirtless in my underwear at my home office.  (Don’t worry, I have pants on now).  I kept scrolling because my Facebook feed is interesting.  I have some celebrity stuff, lot’s of news stuff, horror movie stuff, TV shows I like.  If something happens in the world, my feed will let me know.  So I kept scrolling because I wanted to know what’s going on this morning.  I am on the left coast, the East Coast had been up for hours already.  I wanted to read the updates on Syria, ISIS or as I call them, “dumbshit cowards”.  But, I wasn’t getting the news, I was getting all this shit about Obama and a cup of coffee.

Here’s the thing that bothers me about the situation.  It was tacky I get it.  But, the outrage by republicans is fucking silly.  Let’s be honest here.  These simplistic morons do nothing but sit around and wait for democrats to fuck up and when they don’t fuck up, they make shit up or they make a mountain out of a mole hill.  And, what bothers me the most is that when these fucking idiots fuck up, they take absolutely no responsibility for it.  None!

republican hypocrisy 300x334 Once Again Republican Hypocrisy Rears Its Ugly Head!Getting back to Lattegate.  So there I was sitting here in my Fruit of the Looms and I decide to make a meme to vent my frustrations.  I create this nice piece of artwork.  However, as I finished and was ready to go about posting in various comments sections I realized that it just wasn’t enough.

I get so damn frustrated with the audacity and the hypocrisy of the republican party. I know the party well because I used to be a republican.  I decided that I just need to rant about it because their bullshit and pettiness has got to be stopped.  It must pointed out and their stupidity cannot go unchecked.

So I decided to come up with a short list of things that the republicans do that offend me.  The list is in no specific order.

Let’s get started…

The Iraq War.  Why is no republican taking responsibility for this?  We were lied to about about weapons of mass destruction and went to war over it.  How many U.S and allied troops died over that mistake?

President Bush Jr. had at least once had a chance to capture or kill Osama and he basically let him go at Tora Bora by twice refusing extra troop requests to keep Osama trapped in in his cave complex.  So with a simple bribe to the Afghan militias that captured him Osama got away.

Another lie that helped to lead us into a war with Iraq, remember being told that al-Qaeda was in Iraq? Well, in case you didn’t know, it was all bullshit.  Yet another lie to get us into a war with Iraq.  Even as the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence came out with a report exposing the lie, the Bush administration was still telling the lie that al-Qaeda was in Iraq.  Where is the goddamn outrage?  How many dead soldiers were caused by the Bush administration?

How about these moron republicans claiming that ISIS is Obama’s fault. They tried to spread lies that it was Obama who released the future leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.  It’s simply not true.  It was Bush that had scheduled the release, not Obama.  So what do republicans do?  They quietly let that go and return to their bullshit claim that ISIS in Iraq is Obama’s fault for getting the troops out of Iraq.  Really? United States soldiers were dying at a rate of about about 3 or 4 a week or a day until Obama finally got us the hell out of there.  Once again republicans and their short term fucking memory.  It was the Bush administration that started a war in Iraq over lies about WMD’s and al-Qaeda.  It was that war that actually brought al-Qaeda there in first place and that is why ISIS is in Iraq now.  Again, no claim of responsibility from the republican party, it’s always Obama’s fault.

Now let’s talk about all this bullshit over Benghazi.  How about we first look at how many times congress refused to fund more security at our Embassy’s.  How is it that the majority of republicans voted against the funding?  How about all the people that were killed in Embassy attacks under President Bush’s watch?  No investigation into those?  No outrage over them?  Really? They’re just going to let all those deaths slide? I wonder why.

sgt bowe bergdahl 300x270 Once Again Republican Hypocrisy Rears Its Ugly Head!The republican party has become such an embarrassing joke that I am ashamed I was ever part of that party.  They have been telling me total bullshit my whole life!  They complained that we traded prisoners for the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and yet they didn’t bat an eye when they did the same with the “Iran Contras” when we traded arms to secure the release of several hostages among some other dubious things.  No outrage, as it went before congress by republicans who basically snubbed their noses when democrats were upset with the concept.  Hell, they even made t-shirts wanting Oliver North for President!

Back when Dole was running for President against Clinton they tried to make Clinton out to be a pot smoking hippie communist. What he was, a Roads Scholar that had traveled the world.

The republicans have learned that they don’t need facts.  They live by the theory, “Why let a little thing like the truth get in the way of a good story.”  It’s become their way of doing business.  They simply make up any lie they want and spread it.  It doesn’t matter that they know it’s a lie.  Their sheep followers will believe it even when confronted with the facts they will ignore them.  These people have a cult mentality.  They have lost all ability to think for themselves.  They live in a world where they will only watch Fox News.

I know these people.  A long time family friend of mine is one of these crazy people.  He openly believes the most paranoid insane shit that Fox News tells him.  And, when confronted with the truth he simply denies it.  We don’t talk much any more.  I found myself calling him names to his face for being so goddamn stupid.  He used to email several times a day with all these bullshit and sometimes racist anti-Obama emails.  I was spending all my free time responding to him and factually pointing out where he was wrong.  He would never respond or admit the errors.  He would just keep sending new stuff.  I finally had to tell him to stop it.  I just couldn’t get any work done dealing with his nonsense.  He’s completely denial of facts and reality were just pissing me off and I had to step back.  He spends all his time watching Fox News and they have got him so paranoid and angry over things that  just simply are not true or taken completely out of context.

I am angry that a dumbass like Ted Cruz was able to shut down the government in an attempt to blackmail the president and make no mistake, that is exactly what he did.  If you think otherwise you might just be an idiot.

I literally could go on all day ranting about the extreme list of bullshit the Republican party is responsible for.  Their hypocrisy knows no bounds and as a country we have got to stand up and call them out on it.  And, the only way to do this is to get out and vote!  Get these assholes out of office.  Ted Cruz should be in prison not a member of congress.  Mitch McConnell should be fired for turning his back on the people when he openly said that the only goal of the republican part is to make Obama a one term president.  And, don’t forget this fucking coward said this at a time when, thanks to Bush, our country was in the middle of the worst recession since the great depression.

mitch mcconnell chicken shit coward 300x162 Once Again Republican Hypocrisy Rears Its Ugly Head!Hell, I could even let that comment go if he and the rest of his bat shit crazy republican party actually did something?  But, they did not.  They claimed to support the troops and yet refused funding to properly fund them.  They refused every single jobs bill.  They opposed nearly every single bill the Obama administration put forth.  In fact these people are so full of shit with their hatred for Obama that when Marco Rubio heard that Obama was ready to work on immigration reform he pulled his own bill off the floor!  Once again, they talk a big talk but when it comes to getting anything done, the only thing they can do is complain, blame Obama, vote to wage war and take long, long vacations while condemning the poor for being lazy.

Their actions border on criminal and the only way to solve the problem is to vote them out of office.  Vote democrat, vote independent, vote green, just don’t vote republican, not now.  I don’t care how level headed you think your republican politician is, he’s a republican and republicans vote republican almost all the time.  They are party of sheep plain and simple.  Now I am not saying that the democrats don’t have their fair share of sheep and crazy people.  They absolutely do.  The difference is that democrats don’t listens to the crazy ones.  Sadly the republican party is being led by the crazies and people like Boehner who is too much of a coward to stand up to the crazies.  At this point in time, the party cannot be trusted and it’s up us to vote them out of office.

Finally Watched Season 4 of The Walking Dead!

the walking dead Finally Watched Season 4 of The Walking Dead!

So with all the traveling I did over the past I finally got to watch season 4 of The Walking Dead. It started off good then they brought the Gov back and he was just nothing but annoying. Then I got pissed off that after all that time in Prison they didn’t have a better plan for an attack and they had the shittiest escape plan. The writing couldn’t have been any worse. It turns out that I was wrong, the writing did get worse.

They went and split everyone up! I get it, it’s a drama, if you don’t have drama, then you don’t have drama. But, you can have drama without having stupid.

It was just about this time when I had given up on the season. I was a little more than halfway through the season. I don’t know if to say “It got good” is the way to say it. But, I got hooked. The storyline with Carol, Tyreese and the girls. So heart breaking. What she does, wow! It was so good!

the walking dead season 4 beth 300x379 Finally Watched Season 4 of The Walking Dead!When I copied the episodes on to my flash drive for travel, for some reason episode 13 didn’t transfer over. If you skip that episode then are you left with the impression that Beth was killed. I was heart broken!

It was kinda funny, I had developed a little crush on her. But, I had been feeling guilty about it because this is the little girl that was in some of the Harry Potter movies. On TWD she’s the younger daughter of Maggie, she’s just a kid. I decided to look her up online. I just don’t really remember much of her character from previous seasons and how did I not really notice her. I discover, she’s not a little girl, I am thankfully not the pervert I had been feeling like I was. She isn’t a teen at all. She hasn’t been one for a while. She’s 29 years old! I had been feeling guilty that she was like 17 or 18. I felt so much better about my crush after learning she’s almost 30.

I finally watch episode 13 and to my relief, unless I missed something, Beth is not dead! She’s been kidnapped! I can live with that. That means she’ll be back!

Oh and on side note, I can’t believe they killed the old man! WTF was that all about!? Who didn’t love Hershel?!  After that, they couldn’t kill The Governor enough! His death should have been more violent and painful.

All in all it turned out to be a great season.

Season 5 starts on AMC Sunday October 12th according to their website.
