Signs Of Liberal Guilt

Signs Of Liberal Guilt

Even I couldn't have a bone to pick with such a harmless and innocent gesture as the stick figure families that are adorning the back of vehicles across the country, right? Wrong. Yes, these cute little characters seem to spread a happy little message of love, joy, and family. They should bring hope and happiness to all who see them. They should fill the heart with warmth like a tiny little ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. But not so fast. I don't know exactly what it was the first time I laid eyes on these anorexic heathens, but I knew that something was amiss and I was determined to figure it out. Want to hate these poorly illustrated representations? Read on!

At first glance, the message sent by these figures seems to be quite clear. Mom was once attractive and happy, and the world was at her fingertips. But one day she got a little to drunk and decided to marry a guy with a head that was way to big for his body. This resulted in them giving birth to a girl with curly hair that stands straight up in the air, and a boy who looks like an alien, complete with 3 fingers and a skateboard. He is mildly retarded and waves at everyone he sees. One of these biological disasters wanted a pet so the family purchased an over-sized rat with no tail. See? I get it. But is that the last of the message, or is their more that they are trying to tell me?

After these things started showing up, I noticed that they were appearing almost exclusively on the back of mini vans and suv's. Why would this be? Are you telling me that no family purchases a car anymore? Does every single person who breeds immediately follow the act with the purchase of a Suburban or a Grand Caravan? Certainly somewhere there is a family with a Grand Prix or a Camary. Then I started noticing them in another place. On Prius'. Or Priui? Whatever the plural may be for an idiotic battery powered death trap aside, there is no way possible that these vehicles are transporting the number of quasi human entities that are being depicted on the piece of low grade plastic right below the brake light and just above the emblem that shows the world that you are a liberal idiot with no taste in cars.

And that is when it hit me. It's liberal guilt. You know the deal. It's 11am on a Saturday and your little alien and his nappy headed sister are watching cartoons. You try to wake your wife up but she's been dealing with the little brats all week and she's taking this opportunity to catch up on the sleep she missed out on while simultaneously dreaming of you with a head that is better proportioned to your body. So you stumble out to your Lincoln Navigator to run to Burger King for a sausage egg and pasteurized processed cheese food biscuit.

You're in the middle lane at the traffic light when a smart car pulls up beside you with two vegans on their way to a "I don't eat anything that tastes good" convention. They take one look at you riding alone in your planet killing monstrosity and promptly shoot you the look. Yea, the "I saw you murder that cute little baby polar bear look." And that's when it hits you. It's too late for these two, but what if there were a way to inform everyone who approached your vehicle that you didn't always ride alone in it. What if Paul Harvey could sit on the roof with a megaphone telling "The Rest Of The Story." Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the Stick Figure Family.

This isn't a ray of sunshine, or a happy happy joy joy moment at all. This is a cheap and flimsy attempt to pacify liberal guilt. When you see these creepy people hanging out on the back windshield of a Range Rover they aren't there to tell the tale of a happy family. Not at all. They are there to say "I have a reason for driving this boat. I have to tote the freak show around." Well guess what? Be sure your sins will find you out. Prius dude ain't buying it. He loaded up his traveling band of gypsy rejects into a cat kennel powered by a Duracell. It's the check mate of liberal elitism. It's the "I see your clan and raise you dozen mpg." This creep is willing to strap his side show into the hybrid chair and sentence them to a minimum of sympathetic stares and a maximum of fiery death under the wheels of a W900 Kenworth. He's toting his posse and still saving the planet.

Well shame on you, SUV driver. That's what you get for thinking you could one up these clowns. That's what you get for not embracing your inner polar bear killer. I, on the other hand, drive a semi truck by day and a Suburban by night. I beg the family to stay home, or to hide in the back if they come along. Why? Because I have an Environmental Napoleonic Complex. I might be 5' 8" tall, but I have a carbon footprint that would make Goliath look like a midget. Some day an archeological team will unearth my my carbon steps and swear up and down they found Yeti. It should be small consolation that they think they found proof of the missing link when they find your Astro Van window. So I ask you... "What's on your window?"

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

  • Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
