I just watched the Mitt Romney documentary and now I want to kick myself in the face over the fact that he lost the election because he and those who surround him all seem so lovely, intelligent, determined, and just flat out patriotic. He seems to have such a love for this country and a will to do the right thing. Do you think there's any chance he'll run again? I think he would make a fantastic president.

I really really hope he will. I don’t know what the chance is that he will, but I really do want him too.

Ferguson, Missouri: What’s Wrong With Waiting For The Facts?

Less than a day had passed since the incident that started all the current mess in Ferguson, Missouri when I received my first question about what my opinion on it was. To be perfectly honest, I had the flu at the time and I hadn’t been paying attention to the news at all, though I had seen a lot of incendiary discussion of the situation on my tumblr dashboard, but I learned a long time ago to…

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

Okay but the Black Panther party and gangs ‘supporting’ (weird word to use when someone’s dead) Brown kinda blows up your whole message.

Are the over dozen witnesses that corroborated the cops story considered KKK members? Just asking.

The KKK is on one side because Mike Brown was black, not because it’s been proven that the cop did anything wrong or that it was racially motivated.
The protesters supporting Mike Brown are supporting him because it was automatically assumed, based on witness statements (which the autopsy has now made questionable at best), that made it seem like the cop was definitely at fault.

Neither side is basing their support on the facts, because we don’t actually HAVE the full facts yet. The support on both sides is based on hearsay and automatic prejudice.

So no, this doesn’t tell us shit about the facts of who is right or wrong in this situation.

I’ve come to the conclusion that Tumblr leftists are basically Sheriff Lamb from the Veronica Mars movie.

I am coming to that scene (SORRY SPOILERS) where Veronica comes to Lamb’s office with Logan and presents him with evidence on who the killer is and the Sheriff’s response is, “I don’t care if Logan ain’t the guy, America thinks he’s guilty and that’s good enough for me” or something along those lines. 

Because its pretty much like that, they don’t care about what really happened in a situation, if someone reblogs it and says so and what happened, they believe it and the truth becomes a buried illusion. 

Now that I’m fully awake, I’m just going to say that I really hate being pulled into drama by people. I’m a nice person, I care about my friends, especially when they are upset, but we are all grown ass adults and we shouldn’t act like we are in high school.
I’m not a dramatic person, I don’t have the emotional capacity to deal with drama in my already high pressure life.
Sigh.
