Snowmen, Balls, Liberty, and Behinds

30 Oct

I have a developed a crush on all things Snowman. If I become disenchanted with a Snowman,  I can allow him to melt and toss his parts out. The worst mess a Snowman makes is that little puddle around the toilet. Snowmen do not leave dirty underwear lying about. Nor do they spit or fart. Granted they can be a little cold…. Well, cold shoulders are nothing new. It might be difficult to snuggle with a snowman, but I have a dog for snuggling. Just hope he doesn’t decide to pee in the snow.

We rarely have snow in this part of the country. Building snowmen and sledding do not rank in Arkansas’ top ten winter sports. Probably not in the top 100. That may have some bearing on my obsession.

Then again, it may not.

 

This brings me to the 7th Pinterest Inspired project.  It is complete. It is a hanging Four-headed Snowman. And no, he/they is/are not a Halloween Snowman/men. He /they is/are made with a tube sock and he/they is/are kinda cute. The tutorial will go live tomorrow. Pictures must be taken.  I’m a little behind.

I’m actually a big behind.

There is no reason to further investigate that statement. We shall leave it be.

My daughter discovered once again that finding a liberal in Arkansas in a needle in the haystack proposition.  Of course we’ve known this for some time, but it never fails to baffle when confronted with an evangelical righty. My daughter asked where they get their ‘facts’, using the term loosely.

People hear what they want to hear and believe what they want to believe. They will pay good money to have someone reinforce those beliefs. Look at talk radio….there are a few of those supposed right wing conservatives that have made a killing speaking bullshit. And most of them are probably laughing all the way to the bank.

Take it to heart America. It isn’t about your personal morality. It’s about HUMAN RIGHTS. I wish I could find a way to make this universally understood. I think America would be a better place.

    Just watched “Inherit the Wind” on TCM the other night and mused that the Tea Party would have fit right in with the crowd singing, “we’ll hang Bert Cates from a sour apple tree…” Facts are a scant and scarce commodity, always.

      and always interpreted in a manner confirming the closely held belief system of the interpreter. It is a serious problem when otherwise reasonably intelligent people don’t do due diligence fact checking on everything they read or hear.

      We have a serious problem.
