yes, the dictionary is in that list.
Right before I left work today I very quickly read an article saying that Palin had tried to have some books banned (they didnt name which). but that she apparently made overtures to have the head of Library Council replaced when the individual wouldn't "offer their full support".
she's apparently really fond of that move (replacing people who won't do what she wants). but really, the canterbury tales? i thought it was boring, but christ, i can't think of one thing about it that any conservative would fuss over. i haven't read most of these but those that i have, i can only understand her grudge against a clockwork orange. huckleberry finn? is it too liberal for ya, sarah?didn't she start the whole paying alaskans money so their natural resources could be tapped? i thought she did but i could be wrong. and she doesn't believe polar bears should be listed as an endangered species.... nice.
Don't you fuckin passe liberals get it? Am I the only one who gets it? Sara(h) Pailen is a true artist and the last great futurist. She looks at the sad state of contemporary literature and knows no invention is happening cuz this culture of hippies keeps sucking the teet of the past. Should we wash ourselves in lye? Go to the toilet in an outhouse?Sara(h) says slash and burn the outgorwn past to step boldly into a new realm of artistic and cultural futurism. Shakespear ruined writing the same way Pickasshole ruined painting-people think its so fuckin great and sets a fuckin standard- look idiots you can't go anywhere if you think there's nowhere to go.So Sara(h) is taking away your Harper Lee baby bottle- wah wah wah. So Sara(h) is taking away your precious dictionary- how about some NEW WORDS for a change, you "artistic" types.
Ah yes, everything you say is correct Carli, much in the same way creative genius Jon Voight is absolutely on the money when he refers to the upcoming (no doubt hilarious) An American Carol as a "satire much like Voltaire".
Liz, The Canterbury Tales have ribald humor and loose women. Our children can't be exposed to that shit.
The press responses to that bitch's speech are hideous "perfectly populist", and "answers all the critics".
oh yeah Jackie just reminded me, the time on Saturday for the family outing (guess which one of is a queer!) is NOON- 12PM, straight up and down on the sundial
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told ministry students at her former church that the United States sent troops to fight in the Iraq war on a "task that is from God."what a cunt.we are outing people this weekend?? that makes it a little more special.
What press are you reading? Everything I'm seeing says that it was well-delivered but vapid, with no policy points AT ALL.I don't typically drink on school nights, but I had to get shitfaced last night in order to handle it. Romney's speech made my skin crawl, and it only got worse from there. I did get a kick out of the major emphasis on tokenism--the crowd shots never showed anyone other than the two black people and women.
when we read the canterbury tales in school, we only read parts, so they must have skipped the parts about loose women. i guess that's too much trouble for teachers in alaska. why don't they just stop reading all together. it's sad because alaska is so beautiful but all i ever hear about the people is how much they suck.anyway, i can't wait for the mca!
The William Shakespeare thing is the one that really gets me. So insane I could never argue as to why its insane.
i've been reading the justin webb thing on the bbc website. most of the people like her. one guy from alaska said that she's really conservative but doesn't force her views on people but if elected would "definitely put conservative judges on the bench." that's not forcing views on people? that's what this country needs! no books, and no abortions to any woman regardless if her pregnancy was caused by rape or incest.
Rich, Shakespeare also had sex and loose women...along with men in drag and slightly humanized Jews.The one I'm surprised about is Faulkner. Wasn't he really politically conservative? No sense, no sense at all.Alaska deserves better people. Let's move there!
I hope this link gets spread wide. A conservative blogger contacted the author and confirmed that this is real.
so i have a "i'm from out of town and i don't know how transportation works" question.if i wanted to take the train from logan square (i believe it is fullerton/california), how would i get to the museum? i'm looking at the map and i think i get it, but i'm not sure.
Jackie, you could:--Take the Blue Line to Chicago and transfer to the Chicago eastbound bus.--Take the Blue Line to Jackson and transfer to the northbound Red Line.--Take the Fullerton bus to the Red Line and heading south.
thanks deanna! the 2nd option is what i had figured out but i wanted to make sure.
