Lazy people = bad rulers.

Republicans have one path in this election and it’s called “False equivalency.” They cannot deny Trump is horrible, it’s on tape so they want voters to believe Hillary is just as bad. And in pursuit of that goal, they have a very powerful ally: lazy people.

People who like to say: “They’re all bad” because when you say that you don’t have to do any homework. Say “They’re all the same” and then you can sound justifiably jaded by the whole process when really, you just don’t know anything.

You say you are cynical about politics? Don’t flatter yourself!

Cynicism comes when you know too much. You, on the other hand, haven’t bothered to actually learn anything which people are capable of.

Noah Chomski once observed that when he listening to a sport’s calling show, he said that:

“It’s plain that a high degree of thought and analysis is going into that…People know all sort of complicated details. On the other hand, when I hear people talking about international affairs or domestic problems, it’s at a level of superficiality that’s beyond belief.”

Bill Maher.

One can only imagine it

Can you imagine a 69 year-old woman running for president after she married three times, had five children with three different spouses, openly talks about groping a male’s genitals…?

Jennifer Granholm.

I don’t think anyone can actually name one so we can only imagine it because society shame such women to oblivion when we are ready to have their male counterpart as a president.

Of blood and fibers.

It’s weird but when people learn I am a vegetarian, they always ask me why I don’t eat any fish and meat. And I gladly answer their curiosity without making any fuss. I assume they are genuinely interested and I am happy to tell. Generally, regarding food, unless I am asked, I don’t demand anything or bother anyone with my eating. It’s something between me and myself.

However, once in a while, when the discussion lingers on the topic, I venture myself into asking the same question to non-vegetarians: why are you eating meat and fish? Suddenly, I am facing a tide of “I do whatever I want, don’t I? Why do you care?!”, “Give us a break already!”, “Stop trying to convert me to your lifestyle!”, “Like all bloody veggies, a killjoy!”, “Why do veggies always have to question everyone’s lifestyle?”

I just asked…

I guess it’s the making a choice for yourself that will always bring double-standards.

My mother.
