Truth in Love President Doofus
Author: Monty Pelerin

Doofus is an unusual but appropriate appellation for President Barack Hussein Obama.
What Is A Doofus?
"Doofus" is slang referring to a boob, for which the thesaurus lists the following synonyms -- idiot, nitwit, dunce, fathead, fool, goof, goon, imbecile, jerk.
Some might argue that these synonyms may be inapplicable. Perhaps, but a
diminishing percentage would argue that none are applicable. Such a
characterization of the president five years ago might have seemed
radical or harsh. Even the few who felt that way are probably surprised
at the incomparable ineptness of Obama and his Administration.
Our current situation should not surprise. There is a reason that any
properly run organization requires qualifications for each job.
Experience matters. No one hires a car mechanic to perform brain
surgery. Why should it... (more)
What it may be. People don't really know
Okay so I am generally a very calm and understanding person. I need to clarify that because I really need to BITCH about two people in my life and I am going to sound like the most insensitive bitch in the world.
First off, Cary is a rude, self serving bastard. He comes from a very poor family (like I do) and unfortunately it didn't teach him anything. He is super greedy and is so disconnected with reality. Honestly, not everyone can have a sugar daddy who pays you just to allow him to have sex with you. When you tell me I should quit my job without having a backup when I have bills to pay is RIDICULOUS. I can't be the only one who feels that way. Plus, I know you think that you're clever but really you aren't. When you say something rude and expect us to take it positively, you are really wrong. God forbid I don't like a certain Tom Petty song or super hero movies. Seriously, everyone is different. I have different interests than you. Do I shove metalcore down your throat? No,... (more)
Dark of the Moon Happy Birthday
Timothy Leary, born October 22, 1920.
I first came across Leary as a young girl in a Canadian Tire (I think) of all places. There was a Time Life book that I was flipping through, and there was a picture of an old, white haired man with this colorful, psychedelic backdrop. The picture itself was quite memorable, but the thing that really stuck with me all through the years was a quote. The exact wording escapes me now, but it was about how he had "lost it" and was just some crazy old man now. I've tried to find the exact quote or book since then but to no avail.
I still have a lot to learn about him, but he holds a special place in my heart as someone who was true to himself and his ideals, despite criticism and ridicule. A free thinker who in turn made us think and question things, to "turn on, tune in and drop out."
