I’ve been seeing this term being thrown around a lot lately and I’ve begun to question it. Most of the people that I’ve seen use it, cling to one wing or the other, right or left. It’s such a vague term. Wingnuts. That could apply to whom? Either nuts on the left or right, right? It really isn’t specific. The ones using this term could be talking about themselves for all I know.

Wingnuts this, wingnuts that.

I don’t think I need to tell you that there’s nuts on both sides of the aisle. As for use of the term wingnuts, I think only those who don’t cling to either wing should use it.

What is your take on this term?

Health Care

I am tired of hearing the supporters of this bullshit ObamaCare bill claim the opponents deny that there is a need for reform. I haven’t seen anyone deny that there is a need for healthcare reform. There is a need for reform! We just disagree on what “reform” means. Government takeover of Healthcare is not what this country needs. Government intrudes on our life enough as it is. Why the fuck would you want government controlling every aspect of your life? And of all things, healthcare? You’ve gotta be insane. I know your heart is in the right place. But think with your head, not your heart. Don’t be naive in thinking that this bill will make life easier for everyone. Government usually fucks up whatever it touches. If this bill comes to pass, Government will be fucking with your lives.

I hear people say all the time, “this is my favorite (book, movie, song) of all time.” They are very insistent on it too. It’s their absolute favorite. I don’t know how it is possible to have one absolute favorite of anything, be it song, book, or movie. There’s just too fucking many of them! There are so many wonderful songs, movies and books. How can you single out just one?

I can, however, understand singling out your favorite singer, actor/actress, etc. I can absolutely name a favorite singer, but totally stuck when it comes to a favorite actor. Though, it may help that, my favorite singer was an actor too. But, when it comes to movies, books, songs, I couldn’t name one absolute favorite to save my life.

My favorite singer of all time without a doubt, is Frank Sinatra. My second favorite happens to be female and she is Ella Fitzgerald, the female counterpart to Frank Sinatra. I couldn’t name my favorite song by either of these artists. They recorded thousands of them. I’d have no problem creating a favorites list containing hundreds of their songs, but to name just one? One single song? I can’t do it.

How about you? What do you think? What are your favorites?
