Enough with the Effing Effigies Already

If you're so bereft of social attention and so wantonly desire a semblance of social masochism that you need to hang an effigy of Sarah Palin or Barack Obama in public view then you need professional help. Kindly and voluntarily remove yourself from the American social mainstream and seek psychiatric asylum, for your needs vastly exceed that which can be provided by news coverage and general condemnation. You, like your mother always assured, are special.

Just kill yourself. I'm serious, I as a taxpayer do not want to pay for these idiots to get help. They should just go die. I am sick of these wackjobs.

Makes me wish Soylent Green was real...whack jobs make good compost...something about the extra crazy enzyme balancing out the ph levels in acid soil...

Freedom of speech is a responsibility.

I still wouldn't take theirs away.

If you can't make them shut up, turn your back on them.

By the way, in the movie Soylent Green, Charlton Heston was a pretty careless seeker after the truth, wouldn't you say?

After all, lots of people were/are going to starve to death once they stop grinding up the people for food.

Thanks for stopping by, Jay. You are right, it isn't over, yet.

This might interest you. Some Brits are burning a 20 foot tall effigy of Sarah Palin dressed as Rambo on the site of the Battle of Hastings.

H, thanks much, sir! Glad you liked it.

Eddie, really though don't hold back, how do you really feel. :)

GS, haven't seen Soylent Green. Sounds like an interesting film.

jsn, nor would I revoke their 1st amendment right but I will still make helpful suggestions. And thanks much for stopping by here.

Re: the Brits. The context is different, I think. Celebration of a comical/historic sort not the narcissism on display by the above mentioned lackwits.

They still have Solent Red to feed off.

Uhg...I bet there was also a soy based Solent Grey.

The kind of freaks me out that your photo looks like a younger version of my dad. You don't have Croatian ancestry do you...from upper Michigan / northern Wisconsin? Family lore has it that my dad's missing uncle headed west or southwest. We only have a a single photo he mailed back and looks to be in ranch hand garb in the 1920's.
