This is How Effed Up We Are


May 1, 2009 by Marj Hatzell

You know, I knew we were a bunch of loony toons in this country, but stuff like THIS takes the cakes.

Now, I realize that the results are a bit skewed, due to the fact that they did NOT take a representative sample of exactly who lives in our country.  But the fact that they asked supposedly-religious-diety-fearing-folks makes me want to vomit in my potatoes. And you know I don’t mess with my potatoes. That’s how disgusted I was to read this. You know, Christians. People who treat people the way THEY want to be treated.  Love one another, as I have loved you?  Yeah, them.

Of course, these are the same people who support Prop H8.

And we’re the same country that has produced Lady Gaga and Brit-Brit.

And we basically invented serial killers.

And we invented fast food. And cars.

(Don’t argue with me when I’m on my soapbox. You can’t win. I’m that crazy.)

Then there’s Barbie.  And Bratz.

And GTA.  If you don’t know what that means, consider yourself warned when you check Teh Googles.

And we have the Internets.  Thank you, Al Gore.

And Gentleman’s Clubs (yes, I know it was the French. They can be blamed for everything. Trust me on this one).

And time wasters and video games. And FB and Myspace.  And Hulu.  And wiki.  And…and…

I think you see what I’m getting at.  This country is WHACK, yo.  But not WHACK in a good way.  WHACK is in WHACKY, WHACKED, WHACKO.  Like Whacko Jacko.  Are you down with that?

    I am totally not surprised. Not at all, and that’s sad.

    I saw the news this morning and have to agree. I was going to post on it, but you are much better at the self-expression thing. Pardon me while I go back to my fetal position, sucking my thumb, and humming Mary Poppins’ tunes….

  5. It’s all how the questions are asked. Pew does a good job, but I’d like to know more about how the questions are asked.

    For as much as America has progressed, the ride in the back of a pick-up truck crowd still exists and supports the higher up GOP crowd.
