Why? Why? Why? 9


So, yesterday was the first day of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. I’m not really a fan of hurricanes, though I’ve never actually been through one. I’ve been through a tropical storm before. Typically, hurricanes don’t come to this part of the state.

Right now on TFL’s board, we’re discussing why other countries hate the US. So far its been pretty interesting. Let’s see, there’s the typical anti-Bush stuff that most folks have going on. Then, there’s the whole “Americans act like they’re better than everyone else” stuff. But perhaps the most interesting is that some folks hate America because we have so many fat people. 😡 EXCUSE ME?! People hate an entire country because there are overweight people in it. How is that right? How is that justified? How can you hate an entire nation because some people have weight problems? I had to keep from screaming when I read that comment. I just can’t believe the ignorance of some people.

Someone else said that people shouldn’t bash Bush and should support him until he’s out of office. Why? I’m not going to sugarcoat how I feel about Bush. I mean, I don’t hate him, but I’m not going to lie and say that I like the man. (I should be given bonus points for not hating the guy.) I’m also not going to back him when he’s only backing the rich, white, straight, Christian men in this country. Why should I have to back a man who I disagree with? That would be being dishonest and wrong.

Anyways…I didn’t go vote yesterday. The Democratic candidates were (for the most part) uncontested. I couldn’t force myself to vote for Republicans. Unfortunately, Tom Parker got the nomination. Why? He’s not qualified. He’s only going to be a lap dog for Roy Moore. He’s probably going to end up causing more problems than he’s worth. So, why did people vote for him?

I made it so you can ask me questions without going to the Q&A page. I hope people don’t abuse this feature, but I hope people begin to ask more questions.

    I think its more the image that is potrayed to the outside world about America, I must admit when people here think of Americans its usually associated with them being over-weight, its a stereotype that is put out by American sit-coms and bad press that is extended to the rest of the world. It was a bit narrow minded of them to give that as a reason for hating America! but on some level I can see where they’re coming from
