I thought Sarah Palin was pretty out there. In the Land of Duh a new queen has been crowned. She is Christine O’Donnell , the Tea Party candidate from Delaware. Even the Republicans think she is politically deficient. Below are quotes of Ms. O’Donnell’s and my responses to them.
“It is not enough to be abstinent with other people, you also have to be be abstinent alone. The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery, so you can’t masturbate without lust.” -MTV Interview
From what I understand the Church fathers were/are against masturbation because it was/is (depending on what you believe) a waste of seed (sperm). Nowhere have I seenwhere it says a woman cannot masturbate. In a way, lusting after oneself is called narcissism, and how can you cheat on yourself? Maybe with a clone that would be possible? However, what doesthis have to do with the politics of now?
“We took the Bible and prayer out of public schools. Now we’re having weekly shootings. We had the 60s sexual revolution, and now people are dying of AIDS.” -Politically Incorrect
I haven’t figured out how you related one to the other. If we put the Bible in the classroom, can we then have the Vedas and the Koran put in there as well? You can’t force others to believe what you believe. You cannot convert the entire nation. It doesn’t work that way. People can pray or not pray when they want to, and in all religions. Ms. O’Donnell taking the Bible out of the classroom has nothing to do with society’s problems such as school shootings, any sexual revolutions (there is always a sexual revolution somewhere), and AIDS. To try and make a correlation between these things is unacceptable.
“God may choose to heal someone from cancer, yet that person still has a great deal of medical bills. The outstanding bills do not determine whether or not the patient has been healed by God.”-Live Leak
Firstly I believe that G-d can and does heal various people of different religions through divine intervention. However, money has nothing to do with his healing. If He saves you, don’t you think He’s going to help you find a way to pay those bills? Then again,in situations like these, bills are not something one worries about to begin with. You do all you can to get better. If you were trying to argue that America’s healthcare costs are ridiculously high,I agree, but you need to find a better way of phrasing what you are trying to say. Maybe hire a speech writer, fact checker, or someone who has half a clue of what they are doing.
“America is now a socialist economy. The definition of a socialist economy is when 50% or more your economy is dependent on the federal government.” ~Campaign Speech
Dictionary.com defines socialism as: “a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole,” and “Compare capitalism an economic theory or system in which the means of production, distribution, and exchange are owned by the community collectively, usually through the state. It is characterized by production for use rather than profit, by equality of individual wealth, by the absence of competitive economic activity, and, usually, by government determination of investment, prices, and production levels”.The previous statement is taught in most high school history classes. Crack open a textbook once in a while will you? Perhaps read the Communist Manifesto and other documents? Go on line once in awhile? Facts?
“I dabbled into witchcraft. I never joined a coven.” / “One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar.” -Politically Incorrect 1999
By-the-way there is a HUGE difference between Witchcraft and Satanism. Apparently you do not know the difference. Not only that, but further on in the quote you mention that there was blood on the altar. Instead of calling the police you had a picnic. No comment, but you know what I’m thinking.
“American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains.” – Fox News’s The O’Reilly Factor, 2007
Is that why Mickey Mouse can speak? Where are you getting this drabble from? Where are your facts to back this up? I don’t think I’ve laughed this hard at a politician in along time.
“You see Tolkien’s wisdom applied to just about everything: Tolkien and communism, Tolkien and industrialization. … In researching this topic I even found a book on Tolkien and sexual fetishes. … [It’s] surprising, then, especially in today’s very hyper-sensitive, post-Gloria Steinem world, that there’s such a lack of commentary on Tolkien and women. … Is it that people assume that women don’t have an interest in Tolkien?” — December 18, 2003,CSPAN
Wait, what? Is Tolkien back from the dead and running against you? What does this have to do with anything?
“Absolutely, but let me qualify that-I consider myself an authentic feminist. Not as defined by the modern movement. And, let me clarify that a little bit more. I was an English major, so break it down: -ist means one who celebrates. As a feminist, I celebrate my femininity.” — July 2010, Interview at Americans for Prosperity’s RightOnline Conference
I was an English major myself,. Your previous quote on Tolkien shows that you obviously cut class a lot. I have not figured out how you came to put the two together in such away that makes me think “are we the same species ,let alone the same gender?”
“Adolph [sic] Hitler once said that to engineer a society you must first engineer its language. Starting with the youth, he set in motion a design to erode the power of words, to steal the significance and beauty of a single word. We can see the unfolding of that plan in our society. Society’s ‘sexual liberation’ has unleashed an entirely new lexicon. For example, ‘gay’ has always meant joyful and gleeful. Yet, today, when we say that Ellen is gay, we’re certainly not talking about her emotional well being.” — November 9, 1998
1. A word can have two or more meanings and be spelled the same way. This is called a homonym. You were an English major-tisk tisk!. 2. Quoting Hitler is absurd and in poor taste when running for a political office in the United States. 3. What you and Hitler are describing is called brainwashing. 4. Hitler and sexual liberation–somehow these do not go together in good context.
“By integrating women into particularly military institutes, it cripples the readiness of our defense. Schools like The Citadel train young men to confidently lead other young men into a battlefield where one of them will die. And when you have women in that situation, it creates a whole new set of dynamics which are distracting to training these men to kill or be killed.” –Delaware GOP Senate nominee and Tea Party favorite Christine O’Donnell, during a 1995 C-SPAN interview when she was press secretary for Concerned Women for America
I thought you were a feminist?
