About Dusty, hells most vocal bitch

I am a..brown Cali bitch that is quite the opinionated,political, pain-in-the-ass, in your face kinda girl that also loves baseball and music to a fault. Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.--Albert Einstein-*

  1. Agreed! I heart her to. I love the way she speaks- as though the whole time she's talking she's also whispering “Are you fucking kidding me? You sir, are a complete idiot.”

  2. I disagree that it is all racisim. I think some of it is. I think the root may be. But not all the people showing up are racist. They are just listening to various sources who use manufacured “facts” designed to lead them to believe something that is at beat only 1/2 true. And of course, these sources also convinced them that all other sources are “in the tank”, biased, or otherwise not to be trusted.

    So they only want to believe sources that sound alike. Anything that does not fit into their view is therefore wrong, biased, or whatever.

    So they get sucked in. Not because they are racist, and not because they hate minorities. They actually believe the stuff people like Beck, Hannity, and Limbaugh say is 100% true and that everything that does not agree 100% with the three stooges is biased and untruthful. They are convinced that the “facts” presented to them are true, and they are not interested in hearing anything else. 

    Using the charge that “they are all racist” only plays into the hands of the hard right. They are out there saying “the left thinks you are racist because you disagree”. Well to the people who are in fact not racist but disagree this does not sit very well. They are made to think that they are presonally under attack for not towing the line. They think that all dissent will be shut down using the race claim.

    Of couse this pisses them off, and gets them more on the edge. As it should. If I happened to disagree with a black elected official on non race related issues – using facts I believed to be real – and I was accused of just being racist I would be pissed. The right knows this and just keeps throwing out more of their “facts” and pointing out all the calls of racism being made.

    Again – I think SOME people out there protesting may very well be racist, but I do not think it is the majority. I think a lot of people are simply being taken for a ride.

  3. Hello Lazy, good to see you!

    I have to disagree as I believe the way the teabaggers have made it 'personal' by attacking Obama as a person. The whole lot of them do not want to hear the truth about any of it. The idiots bitching about the govt messing around in their health care and then they have Medicare just slay the shit out of me. Ignorance is bliss with these folks.

    Whether or not it's racist, the mindset that Ms. Garofalo states still hit's it's marks.

    Plus it was also a comedy skit..so she did embellish it a bit. 😉
