I feel bad that I haven’t updated in a while. I know what a bummer it is to go to one of my favorite blogs and find it hasn’t been updated. Of course, that assumes this is a favorite blog of somebody.

I haven’t really had a lot of time for some reason. Oh yeah, I just remembered. My TV died, so my kid duty starts the second I force myself out of bed before I am ready to wake up. I don’t have that usual 1.5 hour window in the morning when they are watching PBS. It’s funny, I really couldn’t figure out why I have been so busy until I was just writing this.

The kids are finally figuring out how to quietly occupy themselves now that they have been without the drug for a while. So here I am with a few minutes to blog, but I have used it to tell this boring story.

I have a few election things to blog about. Also, I called for an absentee ballot so I could blog about all of the races with the ballot in front of me.

Okay, so, great posts coming up, I promise.

In the mean time, check out this Saturday Morning Rant from my favorite blogger from the “lunatic fringe of the US right,” Vermont’s own Alphecca.

Hell will freeze over before I vote for ANY Democrat or Republican again. And spare me your fucking “would you rather see so-and-so…lesser of two evils…throwing away your vote” bullshit. We need a revolution — in politics, in thinking, in rights, in America and the world, — and you will NEVER get it from anyone in the two major parties. We need a nation where men start acting like men again. This country needs a big fucking shot of testosterone.

Be sure to read the whole thing.

  1. A rabid conservative-libertarian using Public Broadcasting as a babysitter EVERY day for an HOUR AND A HALF ???

    Goodness, Charity. Aren’t you worried that the communist-atheist-homosexuals on PBS are going to brainwash your children?

    And why should the rest of us have to pay for your children to watch TV ???? The injustice !!!!

  2. Hey, I pay Adelphia big bucks to see PBS in crystal clarity, so I am still supporting the free-market.

    I know using the TV as a babysitter is the big, bad parenting mistake these days, but bear in mind, I spend 13 waking hours a day with my children! Even if I let them watch the TV for ten hours a day, I would still be spending more time with my kids than most parents do!

    We have decided that they are so much better off without the TV, we are not getting another one, though.

    Oh, and I like to expose my kids to the things in the world that I don’t agree with. I want them to be independent thinkers. Or at least armed with the wherewithal to defend their views. (Unless they turn out to be liberals, in which case they are on their own to try and defend that.)

    Now why would you want to be anonymous for such a funny comment?

  3. I’m just joking with you Charity.

    I do believe that you are a wonderful mother.

    And I’m glad that your children are being exposed to our liberal propoganda machine. How else are we to recruit future members of the NEA (aka NAMBLA)?

  4. Our two year old, thankfully, has had minimal television in his life. My wife and I are diehard Sox fans, so he does get a dose of games on TV and radio, but now we are on hiatus until spring.

    It has been refreshing to not see all of the political ads on the television. I think it has made me do my own research on the candidates and not get bogged down with the 30 second spot.

    Actually, any shows I now watch are generally on i-tunes. No commercials too. Hmm, maybe time to dump my Dish altogether. . . .
