So in the middle of my workout, I was feeling pretty miserable. This is no picnic. But I’m glad it’s over. I’m also glad I got the treadmill out of the way before I checked out the news.
Oh yeah…it’s Political Rant Time!
Dolores Huerta was granted the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama. She joins the ranks of other honorees such as Walt Disney, Gordon B. Hinckley, Jackie Robinson, Charleton Heston, Pope John Paul and the like. Okay, who is this chica? Let’s look at her resume for a moment. She is an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. Gee. Wow. Super.
I find it immensely ironic that a medal representing FREEDOM is being given to a Socialist. Socialists don’t espouse freedom, and don’t try and tell me otherwise. Huerta has admitted to revering Hugo Chavez and his regime in Venezuela. She waxes on and on about how glorious life in Venezuela is: ‘they have these medical co-ops right in the factories where people can go to the dentist and the doctor for FREE’. Question for you, Huerta. If it’s so damned wonderful in Venezuela, why aren’t you there? Or the millions of other illegal immigrants? Please tell me, because it makes no sense whatsoever for people to ask ‘why can’t America do this’ when there are supposedly countries out there doing it and doing it great. Flock to THOSE countries, for Pete’s sake. Leave my America alone. Socialism is great until you run out of everyone else’s money. (I stole that quote, possibly from Madeline Albright?)
What’s so bad about Hugo, you ask? Oh I don’t know, maybe it’s the KIDNAPPINGS of political opponents? Maybe it’s his joke of a college that turns out doctors in three years instead of seven, and engineers in two years instead of five. How come people aren’t traveling to Venezuela to get special surgeries done? Who knows?
Another quote by Huerta: “Republicans hate Latinos.” Thank you so much, Huerta, for putting emotions on me. I took several years of Spanish in high school and college. I routinely would translate for latinos in my church when there wasn’t anyone else available. (Almost anyone else is better than I!) I used to have several latin American friends. Guess what? These so-called friends started accusing me of racism. Thanks so much! I don’t agree with their politics, and all of a sudden I’m a racist? People like you, Huerta, are causing rifts among people. So screw you and screw your Medal of Freedom, and screw President Socialist Obama. I am so sick of people like my former latina friends saying, “Don’t tell me I’m socialist”. Guess what? If Obama isn’t a freaking Socialist, then he at least is having a love affair with every Socialist person within throwing distance. Huerta, Anita Dunn, Van Jones, Carol Browning, Valerie and Vernon Jarett and so on and so forth. These people I’ve named are currently serving or have served under Obama’s administration doing ‘important office things’ (quote from “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead” love that movie). Don’t even get me started on the Muslim Brotherhood.
In case you couldn’t tell, I am seriously ticked off right now. Democrats, Liberals…open your damn eyes to who is the sitting president and what his agenda is. Romney wasn’t my favorite pick, and I’m a Mormon, but he’s going to be a darn sight better than our current SOB. (Socialist Obama, Barack). Maybe I shouldn’t listen to the news anymore…
