An Open Letter to Ann Romney


Stop it.
Stop it right now.

Stop using your illnesses as a campaign issue if you’re never once going to talk about the need to further awareness or the need to raise money for research or for anything other than furthering your own selfish agenda — all the while denying you are doing anything of the sort.

It’s disgusting.
So, stop it.

Because what you’re using it to snag is the White House. And the White House is the residence of the most prominent public servant in the United States. But public service is most assuredly not what you are advocating with the Ann Romney Pity Party Road Show.

The ME ME ME interview-train you are steering into seemingly any and every station with a broadcast signal or rag with publication privileges has steered very clear of any meaningful discussion of what real illness really does to real people.

But then it kind of has to, doesn’t it, Ann.

Because you wouldn’t know about any of that.

Because your situation is not representative of what real illness really does to real people.

Trust me, I know.
Because I am a real person really affected by real illness and I’m tired of your act.

I am Multiple Sclerosis – each and every day since my diagnosis on May 15, 2009.

I am also married with a mortgage, a full-time (and then some) corporate manager, and I am in the game.
And I — like the mostly 400,000 other Americans living, dealing and coping with the real realities of Multiple Sclerosis — do it all every day without spinning my sad tale of woe to manipulate situations for my own personal gains.

Because that’s disgusting.
So, stop it.

“I want people to believe in their hearts that we know what it is like to struggle,” you said this past Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet The Press’. ” … our struggles have not been financial, but they’ve been with health and with difficulties in different things in life.”

Ann?
If you can lament MS as your ‘cruel teacher’ yet have absolutely no comprehension of financial hardship that often goes hand-in-hand with long-term and/or incurable illness, then I once more must advise you to stop it. Stop it right now.

No one begrudges you — or your husband — your success.
That is not what this is about.

The dream, the promise and the hopeful realization of financial success is part of the very foundation of our country.
Congrats on making it.

What this is about is that you put yourself front-and-center and go on and on (and on and on) about your struggles with MS and how you “don’t know how much is it going to chew me up and spit me out?” … and you, like the rest of us wonder “How sick am I going to get? … Am I going to be in a wheelchair?” … and you, like the rest of us, know “It’s a very, very frightening place to be.” … yet you never once ever (ever!) talk about why all of that is why we need to bring the issue to the forefront, to make health care a true and meaningful part of a national discussion, to raise awareness, to raise money for research, to find a cure (because we could) — for it and all of the many other diseases out there for which there is no cure, little money, even less discussion and scant hope … and so on and so forth.

What this is about is that you, Ann, are in the perfect position to do just that.
But you never talk about the bigger picture.
You never speak of or to the greater good.
Ever.

Shame on you!


It’s just the never ending Ann Romney Pity Party Road Show.
A true story about Ann Romney.
Starring Ann Romney.
Talking only about Ann Romney.

So, do not attempt to class yourself with me or other folks like me when it comes to Multiple Sclerosis.
Ever.

Because ‘The Hug’, the skin flips, eye jumbles, pulls, seizures, spasticity, word fishing, fog, falling, paralyzing fatigue, constant pain, more than occasional Krueger Claw and all of the other ruthless physical and emotional realities of daily life with MS are but a part of the conversation that speaks to that bigger picture you don’t talk about.

That bigger picture that, for the rest of us includes things like:
The worry over what to do about work when you can’t walk or think.
::: You don’t work, so this is not something that weighs heavily on your mind. Why talk about it, right? That’s not your MS. :::

The fear your colleagues will find out and feel you’re suddenly ‘less than’ capable.
::: Your colleagues on the campaign eagerly have you play the victim card, so this is not fundamentally significant to you. Why talk about it, right? That’s not your MS. :::

The financial stranglehold imposed by uncovered insurance costs.
::: We all know that ‘financial struggles’ are not intrinsic to your way of life. Why talk about it, right? That’s not your MS. :::

And so much more I don’t need to get into here because why talk about it, right, Ann? That’s not your MS.

But it is mine.

My MS means nearly $4,000 every month for just 4 Avonex injections (that’s just a one-month supply, Ann).

My MS means as much as $5,000 twice a year for brain or cervical spine MRIs to monitor my progression.

My MS means feeling helpless and very, very (very) scared when people I know and care about die from MS.

People like Dan Aronie …

People like my high school classmate Clay …

Oh but that’s just my MS, Ann.

Not yours.

And I know you don’t concern yourself with those things not Ann Romney.
::: Choo Choo!! And the Ann Romney Pity Party Road Show MUST go on! :::

Ann, I don’t doubt that you do you understand a small smidge of the physical plight the rest of us MS patients endure, but you cannot even begin to understand what it is like to live with (and in spite of) the rest.

So do not try to ‘relate’ to me, girlfriend. ‘kay?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am a working professional living with (and paying for) MS … and I approved this message.

“They Won’t Magically Turn You Into A Lustful Cockmonster”

Chris Kluwe Explains Gay Marriage To The Politician Who Is Offended By An NFL Player Supporting It

Background in a nutshell:
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo has spoken out in favor of a Maryland ballot initiative that would legalize gay marriage. Yahoo has published a letter that Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns Jr. wrote last week to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, urging him to “inhibit such expressions from your employee.” This is Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe’s response to Burns.

Dear Emmett C. Burns Jr.,

I find it inconceivable that you are an elected official of Maryland’s state government. Your vitriolic hatred and bigotry make me ashamed and disgusted to think that you are in any way responsible for shaping policy at any level. The views you espouse neglect to consider several fundamental key points, which I will outline in great detail (you may want to hire an intern to help you with the longer words):

1. As I suspect you have not read the Constitution, I would like to remind you that the very first, the VERY FIRST Amendment in this founding document deals with the freedom of speech, particularly the abridgment of said freedom. By using your position as an elected official (when referring to your constituents so as to implicitly threaten the Ravens organization) to state that the Ravens should “inhibit such expressions from your employees,” more specifically Brendon Ayanbadejo, not only are you clearly violating the First Amendment, Chris Kluwe is a heroyou also come across as a narcissistic fromunda stain. What on earth would possess you to be so mind-boggingly stupid? It baffles me that a man such as yourself, a man who relies on that same First Amendment to pursue your own religious studies without fear of persecution from the state, could somehow justify stifling another person’s right to speech. To call that hypocritical would be to do a disservice to the word. Mindfucking obscenely hypocritical starts to approach it a little bit.

2. “Many of your fans are opposed to such a view and feel it has no place in a sport that is strictly for pride, entertainment, and excitement.” Holy fucking shitballs. Did you seriously just say that, as someone who’s “deeply involved in government task forces on the legacy of slavery in Maryland”? Have you not heard of Kenny Washington? Jackie Robinson? As recently as 1962 the NFL still had segregation, which was only done away with by brave athletes and coaches daring to speak their mind and do the right thing, and you’re going to say that political views have “no place in a sport”? I can’t even begin to fathom the cognitive dissonance that must be coursing through your rapidly addled mind right now; the mental gymnastics your brain has to tortuously contort itself through to make such a preposterous statement are surely worthy of an Olympic gold medal (the Russian judge gives you a 10 for “beautiful oppressionism”).

3. This is more a personal quibble of mine, but why do you hate freedom? Why do you hate the fact that other people want a chance to live their lives and be happy, even though they may believe in something different than you, or act different than you? How does gay marriage, in any way shape or form, affect your life? If gay marriage becomes legal, are you worried that all of a sudden you’ll start thinking about penis? “Oh shit. Gay marriage just passed. Gotta get me some of that hot dong action!” Will all of your friends suddenly turn gay and refuse to come to your Sunday Ticket grill-outs? (Unlikely, since gay people enjoy watching football too.)

I can assure you that gay people getting married will have zero effect on your life. They won’t come into your house and steal your children. They won’t magically turn you into a lustful cockmonster. They won’t even overthrow the government in an orgy of hedonistic debauchery because all of a sudden they have the same legal rights as the other 90 percent of our population—rights like Social Security benefits, child care tax credits, Family and Medical Leave to take care of loved ones, and COBRA healthcare for spouses and children. You know what having these rights will make gays? Full-fledged American citizens just like everyone else, with the freedom to pursue happiness and all that entails. Do the civil-rights struggles of the past 200 years mean absolutely nothing to you?

In closing, I would like to say that I hope this letter, in some small way, causes you to reflect upon the magnitude of the colossal foot in mouth clusterfuck you so brazenly unleashed on a man whose only crime was speaking out for something he believed in. Best of luck in the next election; I’m fairly certain you might need it.

Sincerely,
Chris Kluwe

P.S. I’ve also been vocal as hell about the issue of gay marriage so you can take your “I know of no other NFL player who has done what Mr. Ayanbadejo is doing” and shove it in your close-minded, totally lacking in empathy piehole and choke on it. Asshole.

Toled-uh-oh …


Why can’t you people just let Chuck E. Cheese be the hazardous innocent, bacteria-infested kiddie-fun cesspool megacenter it was meant to be?
Why, people?
WHY?!

Is it something they put in the pizza?
Is it the non-stop flashing of lights and constant rattleclang of asinine arcade activities?
Is it the 60 dirty, screaming ankle-biters running around all crazy-eyed and jacked up on sugar and caffeine?

Maybe it’s all three — but it’s for damn sure something because some tweedlebutts out there just cannot handle Da Cheez and — sadly but predictably — some dumb butt every coupla months gets his freakout on, forgets his 20 and gets all shooty.

This is that month and today’s role model comes to you courtesy of Toledo, Ohio, where a fight between two tweedlebutts left one of them hospitalized after a good old fashioned pistol whuppin’!
::: Because who doesn’t show up strapped to celebrate Junior’s seventh? :::

The dumbfuckery happened around 8:00 p.m. Sunday night at a South Toledo Chuck E. Cheese when two father-of-the-year candidates got their britches in bunches over one of them using an airhorn.
::: Show of hands for everyone who thinks alcohol was involved? :::

The men took their disagreement outside where one mentalist made his point by bashing the other one upside the head with the butt of his gun. Some witnesses say they thought they heard at least one shot fired before the cops came and Shut. That. Par-tay. DOWN.

GOOD TIMES!

Eh, whatever — but at least maybe — just maybe — during their investigation, Toledo’s finest can finally crack the mystery of just what it is about Chuck E. Cheese that robs some adults of their ability to reason and gives them a one-way ticket to straight Badecisionville.

Ok, prolly not … but it can’t hurt to hope.

There is no ‘team’ in Republican


Big Mac may want to suspend any further thought of suspending things in order to fix things he actually has neither the power, the political clout nor the cajones to fix in the first place.

Seems the Macster and her Alaskan Hotness can’t even count on support from their own party on a bill everyone pretty much agreed wasn’t perfect but was necessary.

You know that’s gotta smart … I bet they must feel like the two weird kids who never got picked for dodgeball.
::: someone’s gonna need a hug :::

Speaking at a rally in Columbus, Ohio Monday afternoon — or as I like to call it ‘Signin’ Day’ – the Mavster defended his bullshit political ploy controversial decision to “suspend” his campaign as an example of his leadership style.
“Inaction was not an option,” he said. “I went to Washington last week to make sure the taxpayers of Ohio and across this great country were not left footing the bill. I’ll never be a president who sits on the sidelines when this country faces a crisis. I’ll never do it.”
::: I’ll take the first five words of the last sentence for EVER, Alex … :::

Too bad no one told his Maveric Beefiness what was happening in Washington as he spoke.
::: current events r kewl, y’all :::

Yeah, he might have toned it down a tad had he known that, even after one of the few ‘working Congressional weekends’ in recorded history where actual thought, planning and … well, WORK took place; even amid marathon negotiations and a final, fatal four-hour floor debate — the House of Representatives voted to reject the purported knight-in-shining-armor $700 billion bailout bill meant to help right our blighted financial landscape.

Yup — the bailout bill, which needed 238 votes, came up 13 votes short — 228 to 205.

Seems some of the seventy-five House GOPers who had previously agreed to support the bill backed out at the last minute.
::: flippity floppity foo! :::

On Wall Street, where traders were watching news of the bailout bill’s bustedness, the Dow Jones sank like a ginormous stone of awful in a sea of enormous tumult — closing down 780 point for the day, which makes it the single largest one-day drop in history — which would be, like, EVER!

Way to go Retardlicans!!!

Mother Turned Loose In Mall, Stupidity Ensues


Oh gawd, another breeder got out of her cage and had a public freak out when slapped in the face with the harsh reality of the modern world. Can’t someone keep this ‘gina’s inside?!?

UR Mom Iz Stoopid CafePress shirtShe didn’t lose it over the high cost of gasoline.
She didn’t spaz over funding cuts for schools or go apeshit over the epidemic of suicides among soldiers returning from Iraq.

No, no, no … Sally Suburbia went all disturbia over the title of some books at a store in her local mall.

Yeeeaaaaahhhhhh …

It happened in Lynnwood, Washington when Moron Mommy Marci Milfs went to Urban Outfitters to buy her pweshuss teenage teetsucker son some clothes. But, alas, her credit carnival was ruined because there were all these scandalous books all over the store with titles like “Porn for Women” (which is a photo book showing men doing *GASP* housework) and Stephen Colbert’s “I Am America (And So Can You).”

“When I saw it, I was shocked,” said Milfs, who has an obvious zero tolerance policy when it comes to irony and sarcasm.
::: stop snickering at her last name — we get it too but she doesn’t (and probably hasn’t in a looooong time) :::

In fact, this dumbass is so concerned that today’s little innocents might just see the word ‘porn’ while shopping for new cords or board shorts and be instantly stricken blind by the Good Lord in Heaven that she is planning to detonate a doomed, comical, ill-informed one-woman bitchbomb on community leaders, government officials and anyone else who’s job it is to suffer fools like her.
::: stop pondering what’s screwing up today’s youth — you have your answer and it starts at home :::

I must admit I’m feelin’ kinda sorry for her kid right now. That dude has got to be one effed up pansy!

Oh, and just a word of caution to those community leaders, government officials and anyone else who’s job it is to suffer fools such as this — you better hope this bitch never makes it to Abercrombie & Fitch.
