Steampunk Granny Rants

My husband likes to point out the more serious goof-ups that our elected officials commit. I think he enjoys seeing my reaction to stupidity. Today, he showed me a story about a District Judge ruling against SEPTA and allowing advertising from a private group to be placed on city buses. The ad will feature Adolf Hitler meeting with Haj Amin Al Husseini a man who supported the lower than rat shit, Nazis. The judge said that since SEPTA featured ads against fracking, animal cruelty, teacher seniority, religion and contraception, that this ad was okey dokey and fit in with the First Amendment’s protection of free speech.

Free Speech?

The ad wanted us to stop giving financial aid to Islamic countries. Okay, but why put this on the side of the bus and, why only stop funding Islamic countries. Let us be unprejudiced and include everyone. ‘We the people’ are getting a bit tired of supporting the world. It hasn’t made the people living in other countries any better off and, it has bankrupted us. When we lend money to countries, the lender begins to feel that they can give ultimatums to the borrower. The borrower becomes bitter, resentful and, eventually they become our enemies.  Let’s keep friends by zipping up that purse, forever!

Maybe the ad should read like this:

Stop funding other countries! Keep our freaking tax money here in this country for our own people! Now that’s a message you want to see on a bus.

If Septa is required to feature ads to keep down the cost of a ticket to ride the buses and trains, then let them advertise independent businesses, healthy eating, better schools, clean water and untainted food.


The second part of my rant has to do with the hateful shaming and juvenile remarks made by the members of the Tea Party and Republican Party about President Obama and his family. I don’t care what they say, the attacks on our president have been dehumanizing from the get go. Shame on you! You can’t fool this granny. I’ve lived long enough to know bad manners and hate when I see it. The two parties have been so radically hateful towards the President, that other countries are now comfortable with insulting his wife; horrid and intolerable. Hello Congress! Don’t you realize that your nasty remarks have made us appear clownish to the whole world.

Is it the Fracked Water?

I am seriously trying to figure out why people in authority or on television are saying the most hateful and dumb ass shit. Excuse my %#*%$ language. I am certain that it has to be something in the food or water that is causing an entire political party to act like ding bats from hell. Is it the genetically modified seeds used to grow our food? Is it the water run off that happens wherever fracking is done? Maybe it’s a combination.

My sister says it’s because big oil and foreign corporations own our government and politicians and, by nature of the beast, politicians have large pockets that beg to be filled. Is everyone in politics, corrupt?

I’m still leaning towards the water and food causing the stupidity. In my apocalyptic series, Roof Oasis, greedy men under the guidance of one leader, contaminate the food and water to control the populace. It backfires, there’s a French Revolution type of zombie uprising, hence the apocalypse.
I began to listen to the BBC for my news. I could not stand to watch the news on television. It was causing me to become physically sick. There is only so much toxic waste one should be forced to take into one’s body and soul. Every once in a while, a story comes out that causes me to rant.

Rodner Figueroa, the host of Univision’s Say y Pimiento, appeared on the morning show El Gordo y La Flaca on Tuesday to discuss Paolo Ballesteros, a make-up artist who transforms into various female celebrities, including, Kim Kardashian and First Lady Michelle Obama via make-up. What got Figueroa into trouble and fired was his comment about Michelle. Here it is.

“Mind you, you know that Michelle Obama looks like she’s part of the cast of ‘Planet of the Apes,’ the film.”


There is too much hate in this world! We should respect people and not kill them just because of religion, race, age, gender, or origin. Men and Women are equal. Period! If you can’t handle it, then it’s tough. You can move to the moon and grow the fuck up! You are not allowed to force your religious beliefs on me. I’ll believe in the Creator my own way. Keep religion and politics a separate beast.

The World is on the verge of a total melt down, but no worries. I have a feeling that we, like the dinosaurs, will go extinct, and maybe, the rightful heirs of Mother Earth can take over.

Insects rejoice!
