Shootin' my mouth off again...

Oops, I did it again...bleeeeech.

I shot my mouth off and got verbally slapped in the face. Not the first time this has happened, believe it or not. I got mouthy with the spokesperson for Duran Duran, who in turn got snotty right back. I'm not "tolerant of the band's views." No, uh, more like I'm not tolerant of those guys still primping around twenty years later, but no, I don't agree with their politics either.

One would think I'd learned my lesson after yesterday, but hell, I shoot first, know what I mean? I am just an "overweight, SUV driving" mother, after all, too fat and stupid to know what I'm doing.

Stop that.

I posted a couple comments just now, and I'm sure someone will get a fart crosswise about it, but you know what? One puts these things in a public forum and opens themselves up for this kind of stuff. I realize that, why doesn't everyone else? My goodness, have we all forgotten that treasured battlecry "First Amendment!!!" Free speech, we hear it all the time from those who tend to lean a bit left, huh?

You know, I've come across quite a bit of Republican and Bush bashing stuff in these blogs. Up until today I never made any kind of comment because I know that anything I say would just be moot and make me look narrowminded. I can't change their minds anymore than they can change mine. It is still a free country, no? I roll my eyes and move on.

For the record, I'm NOT overweight. I'm just not happy with my post-baby body. So I drive an SUV. Do I pick on those who drive Japanese cars or minivans? NO. So I'm a stay-at-home mother. Does that make me stupid? Gosh, I hope not. I have a degree, thank you very much, and I do have a brain that most of the time works quite well. Do I pick on working mothers? NOT ON YOUR LIFE. That is unfair. I realize not everyone can afford to have a parent stay home with the kids, and there are single moms who can't do that.

I don't pick, and in the days since the election I really try not to judge. I'm really trying to take the high road, especially with my politics being what they are. Yes, dammit, I'm a Republican, and I willingly drove three hours to see President Bush make a campaign speech. Did I yell rude things back to the Kerry supporter who started heckling a bunch of us on the street? No, I just put my head down and stifled it.

"You say it best when you say nothing at all."

Okay, I vowed I wasn't going to go on here and defend myself, but come on! If you disagree, fine, but don't get all rude.

So to anyone who happens upon my blog, that's it. I will not apologize for what I think or write. I'm not a journalist, but yes, I want to write. This is an outlet for me, nothing more. And I'm really won't write about my childrens' bowel movements.
