Liar, Liar, Meaningless Symbol on Fire!

Now, I'm not an America-hater, but sometimes shit just gets too ridiculous.

See, a bunch of people that don't actually give a flying fuck about anything that goes on in the country that doesn't direclty involve their acquisition of as many blowjobs and fancy cars as possible (two things that I, myself, am very adamant about as well), decided that they weren't going to allow people to burn the flag anymore.

To these people (the same ones who actually believe the Pope has magical powers and that John Edwards talks to dead people), if somebody burns the flag, then they feel like that actually, somehow makes less of the United States. I don't want to get all preachy and shit, but that's what makes America good, you fucking douche bags. The fact that people can openly protest the management of the country in which they live and not face any penalties for it as long as it is done without causing harm to anybody else is why America is what it is. Once some goddamn red staters decide that "Every time a flag burns an angel gets raped by a cheese grater," so they're not going to allow it anymore, is the point when America is no longer actually standing for what it should (free porn on the internet and Brownie Batter Blizzards from Dairy Queen).

Once again, I'm coming off like the filthy left-winger that I am, but I can't believe that people in Congress and the Senate actually think that it's about time we stopped allowing people to burn the flag. Because we all know that burning the flag is the gateway drug into burning harder things like American flag t-shirts, bandanas, toilet seat covers, band-aids, and vibrators.

I'm not going to head out and start burning any flags, but what these idiots don't understand is that the flag is merely a symbol. I mean, when you break it down, they're just burning cloth, kevlar, or a sheet of circumsized Jewish baby foreskin, or whatever flags are made from. It's a goddamn metaphor, you retards. They're not flying planes into the White House or wearing explosive British Knights on a flight; they're operating on the same fucking level as Alice in Wonderland.

The simple idea that people are saying that it has a good chance of passing this time (though, hopefully, it will get shot down by the Supreme Court again), shows just how much I have no idea what actually goes on in the minds of a majority of Americans. The Wal-Mart robots of the Red States have control of America right now and it's scary. People who believe that the universe was created by magic are in control of the most powerful nation in the world.

Suck on that one, logic!

Interesting thought of the day:
Autoerotic asphyxiation is a good first and last line for a haiku.

Incidentally, free porn hit a tremendous snag here a few weeks ago with the passage of a few new laws/regulations dealing with the adult industry.

While I'm not sure on the specifics I do know that several of the websites I used to frequent have shut down or are on some type of standstill since these went into effect.

I know that the new Attorney General, a guy who is actually a bigger religious douche nozzle than John Ashcroft and who has a name that reads an awful lot like an illegal immigrant's, has declared war on the adult industry.

It's good to see congress picking up the slack though and slowly strangling the first ammendment to death in their own way. Really, that should be the goal of the republicans now that they have control over the White House, Congress and after a few of the supreme court justices die/retire (If you add up the ages of these folks the number looks awfully similar to PI in numberical form with no decimal point) and Bush appoints new ones (which should be a snap getting them approved by the republican senate) the republicans will have control over all 3 governmental branches, and each one should be held responsible to further limit first ammendment rights.

My head smells like pizza.
