Talking Politics

Now, I made a promise to myself in the past that I would never post anything regarding my political opinions on this blog. However, I can no longer remain silent. That is not to say this post will give you any insight as to  whether I'm a republican/democrat/tea party/etc. I have just heavily disappointed in our president and our administration over the past few months as well as some of the comments people are continuously making.

 Some of these comments include;


  • YOU ARE RACIST! (If you say something against Obama or his family)

Someone from every single party ever;

  • You're so stupid! Here is a list of reasons as to why you and your party are so stupid!

Once you call someone with an opposing viewpoint 'stupid' your political point goes out the window.

We all live in the same country. Stop trying to tear the people down who have different opinions than yours. Everyone has a right to think whatever they want and trying to get them to be on your side with these types of retorts is absolutely idiotic. We all need to stop this. Talk about the issues, debate one another, be informed, don't talk smack.

As for the reason I am writing this very political blog entry tonight;

We all know Jay Carney resigned today as well as Shinseki (no big surprise on that last one),  but that's not what I'm going to talk about.

It has come to my attention that apparently Obama is planning to run for a 3rd term. I'm guessing this is a lie because not only is that impossible, that is not how the government works!

According to the 22nd Amendment;

Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.
Section 2. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several states within seven years from the date of its submission to the states by the Congress.

Basically there is no way in hell Obama can run another term unless this amendment is repealed. To do so that would require 2/3rds of both the house of representatives and the senate to vote to amend the constitution, or by a convention called by 2/3rds of the state legislatures. Then 3/4ths of the states (38 states) need to vote for the amendment for it to become part of the constitution.

 I don't see this happening anytime soon. Plus, Obama stated once that he really has no desire for a 3rd term. so I'm almost positive this news story is a lie. But that doesn't stop some people from making idiotic comments like these;

I can't wait for President Obama's 3rd Winning Term!- He hasn't even said that he's running for a 3rd term yet! Calm down!

The 2nd Amendment is old-fashioned and outdated. We need more gun control laws to make America safer.- What in the world does this have to do with anything?!?!? 

Dude, the Constitution is, like, over 100 years old. - Dude, the Constitution was written for a reason! Educate yourself. 

Barack Obama needs a third term to accomplish what he did in two terms......nothing.- That is not true. He has done a few things, whether or not those things are good is up to you. 

I'm really hoping I didn't offend too many of you by writing this, but if I did I truly apologize. I'm just sick and tired of seeing such uninformed and idiotic comments on every news story I ever read on the Internet and after that announcement of a possible third term for President Obama today (and the comments to go along with the article) I felt I needed to state my opinion on this issue before my head exploded.

Scared of Graduating

Today I went back to my college and gave the people at the registration desk my ID so I could pick up my cap and gown. I'm graduating on Thursday and truth be told when I first started college I never really expected to graduate. None of my family members did and I only know of three people who have graduated from a college/university setting. I'm proud of myself but also kind of terrified.

What some of you may not know is that in high school I had the most stressful time before graduation. On the day before graduation where all of us students practiced walking, one of my teachers wouldn't give me my cap and gown because I  didn't give her back one of her books. So after the practice walk, instead of having cake with the rest of my fellow classmates (who hated me) I had to run back home, find the book and turn it into her before I received my cap and gown. The secretary was about to put the caps and gowns in storage before I ran up to her in the hallway where she proceeded to have a convulsion about my fast pace of speed until finally handing me my graduation attire.

Oh and I had no one to walk with. Usually people tended to find their walking partner their junior year, but because I had no friends in my grade I had no one to walk with and got stuck with these two guys who were a bit odd. My moms best friend in high school's kid was walking with me, and that just seemed to tickle her peachy so all and all it could have been worse.

I guess I'm afraid that college graduation is going to somehow turn out to be like high school graduation, despite the fact that this will probably not be the case. I'm afraid that I won't know anyone. I'm afraid the college will decide at the last minute that we all have to choose a walking partner and I will be alone again. And there's always that fear of falling on your face when you walk the stairs to get your diploma. I won't be wearing heels but because I have a habit of falling down on a regular basis this could be a problem. But just so we are clear, if I was to fall down, it wouldn't be because I want to draw attention to myself. I can actually see someone doing that. Those types of people deserve to get a concussion while they pretend to fall just so they can look 'cool.'

But although I have my small little fears, I will not let anyone or anything ruin this day for me. Graduation is going to be spectacular and although I have no idea what will happen after, I know that on this day I will feel like I accomplished something and that is enough to make me happy.

That is the number of people who have read my post about the cold water challenge. I am in shock. I am in awe. I am really amazed. I never really expected anyone to ever even read this blog EVER. But to those 507 people who have read that post, I just want to send out a huge thank you and shall now provide you with cookies (or biscuits as they are called in basically every other part of the world besides the US and Canada) and tea for your awesomeness! Even if you didn't agree with what I had to say on the matter I do appreciate that you took your time to read a 23 year old girls little blog post. In a way, it makes me feel kind of special. =P And if you are one of those people who just read that post and gave it a 'view' or whatever it's called on here, I give you many hugs and thanks as well.
Now onward to the cookies and teeeeaaaaa!!!

For those of you who despise cookies and tea, here is a unicorn. Nobody can dislike a majestic unicorn.
