I rest my case.
Meet Meredith Lowell, 27, of Cleveland Heights. She is an animal rights activist, Her convictions, like her Patchouli oil, are strong. She believes that freeing animals from fur farms, medical labs, zoo's, your back yard, is not unlike the freeing of the Jews from concentration camps. Meredith started a face book page to solicit a hit man, or woman to shoot or slit the throat of a fur wearer. Said fur wearer needed to be at least 13, preferably 14 or older. I think the age limit has less to do with killing a kid, and more to do with the fact that a 12 year old might not leave a big enough mess when they bled out. Her plan was to be in the area when the killing took place, then she would pass out leaflets until the cops hauled her ass away to the booby hatch. Meredith hoped to be arrested so she could call attention to her beliefs and to get out of the home she shared with her parents and brothers who eat meat and eggs and use fur, leather and wool, investigators said. Apparently her convictions were strong, but her motivation to get a fucking job and move out on her own were not.
On the opposite end of the spectrum we have this guy.
I rest my case, again.
Rep. Bob Morris, a Republican representing Fort Wayne. Morris is raising a ruckus over the Girl Scouts, because their agenda is promoting communism, lesbianism and subverting "traditional American family values," . Apparently Planned Parenthood is in cahoots with the Girl Scouts to turn all the little darlins into Canyon Yodelers and Feminazis. I'm not sure why PP is involved with the Girl Scouts, but I'm guessing they are spiking those overpriced cookies with Ru480 and estrogen. Which explains why I have started to develop man breasts and spend lots of time at Camp Lickasnatchee. Which is Indian for, "If I was a dinosaur I'd be a lickalottapuss". And by Indian I mean Casino Indian not 7/11 Indian.
I'd pay cash money to sit in on a debate between Meredith and Bob. I'm pretty sure it would turn bad about the time Bob started quoting his family values dogma, and Meredith bit his face off for wearing leather wing tips.
Before you smug libs think you got away clean, lets talk about Maxine Waters.
said at a Democratic Party event in California, referring to screens at the events. "Don't ever let me see again, in life, those Republicans in our hall, on our screens, talking about anything. These are demons. These are legislators who are destroying this country." Maxine, who is under ethics investigations, but only because she is a strong black woman, has built her career around saying outlandish and inflammatory, racist shit. If you think this woman is sane, you're crazier than she is.
My point, and I actually have one............. There are two kinds of crazy. Meredith is typical crazy. A loner, slipping under the radar, with her fucked up ideology until she does something stupid like try to hire a killer through facebook. Bob and Maxine would also fall into that category except for one important detail. The last two nimrods have a voice beyond crazy ramblings on facebook, or Myspace, heh. The reason Bob and Maxine have a voice is because the morons in their particular districts voted them into office. Maxine, more than once. That shit is scarier than a whole busload of tofu eating, cardboard shoe wearing, hippy activists.
The fact that there are people who have twisted, fucked up as a soup sandwich ideology and beliefs is nothing new or surprising. What is surprising and more than a little disturbing, is that there are enough like minded slack jawed doofus voters to put these clowns in office. The people of each party who are supposed to be normal, love to point out the crazy on the other side, while ignoring the crazy within their own party. Which is why I will be leaving the country for Amsterdam, as soon as I can get off that no fly list from the time I cussed out the Expedia customer service rep in India. Which was a total bullshit call from the TSA given the fact that the dude clearly couldn't understand English.
