Why People Piss Me Off-chapter 1

     I'm a pretty easy going person.  It takes a lot for me to get angry.  Having said that, I should say there is one sure way to piss me off. TALK DOWN TO ME.
     I do not assume to know anything about a person I have never spoken with at first glance.  I don't talk down to anyone.  I CAN'T STAND PEOPLE WHO DO!!!!!  What is the point of it?  To put me in my place?  To make yourself feel wrongly superior, or to just be a big old bitch?  Is it because you always get away with doing it?  Is it that you think because I am NOT a raving lunatic bitch, that I will just put up with it?
     I have to say that I had this happen to me today.  I thoroughly enjoyed making the woman, who spoke to me like I was her dog, look like a complete idiot.  The person who overheard this conversation was laughing so hard that she had to walk away.  (and I never even raised my voice)
    Maybe if people took their heads out of their asses, and realized that there is more to see in this life than just their own reflections, the world might actually be a better place.  Maybe. (but what do I know)

Rules For Reword the Retweet Friday

So, since we've already turned Follow Friday into a complete freakfest, it seems a fun new mind melting game has come about.
It is called Reword the Retweet Friday.
Quick rules:
-you can change any part of the tweet you are going to retweet. You can add or remove parts of the original tweet
-you must put everything you add to the tweet in ALL CAPS
-you must use the hashtag #rwrtf at the end of the tweet

Only reword the retweet  of someone who is playing. LOL
Have fun. See you on twitter!

Disney channel shows

     So, the Jonas Brothers have a new show on Disney channel.  You would think that this would make me wretch.  I should really hate it.  I really don't!  It made me laugh.  (more than once).
     It seems that I find myself watching Disney channel more and more these days, even if my kids are not home.  I know all of the shows, all of the characters, and all of the theme songs (this includes playhouse Disney), but WHY?
     I think it might have something to do with the fact that the shows are all comedies (which I love), and that they are more like the sitcoms I grew up with than anything on the big three networks.  They remind me of a "Happy Days" kind of sitcom- safe, silly humor. They have just enough "adult" jokes hidden in them to keep them interesting. The Jonas Brother's show actually reminded me of "the Monkeys".  Nickelodeon's "ICarly" and "Drake and Josh" are pretty good too.
     I like shows that I can watch with my kids without having to explain why they shouldn't say the word asshole.  They're aren't too many of them left.  Reality TV is neither reality nor good TV, so that doesn't leave much else.  They're are plenty of dramas, but they are pretty boring.  (except for LOST).
     So there it is, why I watch Disney channel all...wait... Hannah Montana's on.....gotta run

Thank You Public School

     I would like to thank public school for the following:

Teaching history- revisionist history that is nothing more than an attempt to sway the children to a liberal point of view.  

Covering the election- by introducing middle school children to campaign issues such as abortion, capital punishment, and gun control.  The shrine to Obama in the main hall was also a nice touch.

Attempting to teach values- not MY values, but yours. Which I don't agree with. Basically because you don't actually have any.

Assigning projects- such as "Which amendment would you remove"( of course the 2nd was encouraged) and "Build a GREEN house of the future" or "write a letter to our senator about global warming". 

Celebrating Holidays- every Holiday EXCEPT Christmas.  But I'm pretty sure if there was a "Go fuck a goat in the name of satan day" we would be allowed to celebrate that.

Not tolerating bullying- by having the most ass backward policy of never taking one child's word over the other and actually punishing them both if an incident occurs<---I kid you not.

     All in all, it's been quite an enlightening experience.  I have had to unteach more than I could have ever imagined.  The politically correct atmosphere at public school has run amok.  The teachers feel free to bring their own political views to the classroom, and to tell the children what they SHOULD be thinking.  Really? My taxes pay for this?
     I am lucky that my children do NOT just sit back and accept that their teacher's OPINION is the only opinion.  I am glad that they have the balls to argue when they know something is wrong, or goes against what they've been taught at home. What happens to the children who accept half of the bullshit thrown at them as FACT?

     The one thing that I AM thankful to public school for, is opening my eyes to what is really going on in society.  No wonder there are so many whining assholes who think we can cuddle information out of terrorists, or that disagreeing with them makes you an extremist or a racist.     So, thank you public school for trying your hardest to fuck up my kids- and for giving me the opportunity to stop you before you succeed.
