My name is asiangrrlMN. I am a lefty blogger at the highly-esteemed blog, Angry Black Lady Chronicles. I am not Black or a Lady, but I am definitely Angry, and today? My ire is aimed directly at you. Because, you all fucking suck, first of all. You’re all about your fucking ratings and making sure that you don’t upset the status quo. You will report on shit like the Kardashians (the fact that I even fucking know who they are kills my soul a little bit) and the stupid British wedding (note, we are Americans. We fought against the British purportedly to get away from all this monarchy bullshit*) and all the other mundane bullshit that passes for news these days.
Confession time: I have very little use for you. I don’t watch any news, cable or broadcast, and I read very little old-timey news, either in paper form (none) or on the web (very very little). I read blogs I trust, and when they direct me to the latest chicanery of the day by the MSM, I sometimes click on the link with great reluctance. This means I don’t watch ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or any other so-called news network. I used to watch Rachel, but I haven’t done that in months, either. I rather imbibe my news by reading about it because I get to control the pace of the information download, and I find TV news to be seriously broken.
That said, I don’t live in a complete vacuum. I know what the MSM is babbling about most days, and my disgust has grown quantum leaps in the past few weeks since Donald Trump declared that he might declare, but he might not. But, at any rate, he’s a smart guy who, you know, is such a success**, and, you know, he’s not sure the president was born in this country.
Stop. Stop right there. This is one of my conversation-stoppers. If someone says s/he isn’t sure whether President Obama was born in this country, that person loses all credibility with me. As a terrorist anchor baby*** myself, I take much exception to this entire line of questioning and to the nerve of people demanding the president produce proof of his birth (beyond the birth certificate he’s already shown). If someone wants to make a ridiculous claim, it’s up to that person to prove his/her claim, not to the person being accused to prove it’s not true–which isn’t fucking possible, anyway. You can’t prove a negative.
