Hail to Bristol Palin!

P90X is really kicking my butt. Even only doing it twice a week has my body sore non-stop. After a night of working out, it’s time to work on the blog a little as well with some other things :)

I’m finally updating my iTunes music to my iPhone. My iPod decided to die sometime last year and I’ve been too lazy to transfer music onto my iPhone. I would buy a new iPod but I don’t have the money to currently and there’s really not a huge need for it given my phone. I prefer to carry an iPod around as the battery life on it is considerably longer than my iPhone. I’ll have to leave my iPhone plugged to a charger in order to listen to music for a while. There’s a new software update as well for the iPhone. Instincts tell me I shouldn’t do it given what happened last time, but I’m going to do it anyway and hope I don’t spend the rest of the night fixing anything.

I made some changes to the last post about Glossy Box’s debut. Some more information has been added in regards to the subscription/service. I originally typed the blog post at my parents house and didn’t have a lot of time to touch up on everything. Some new information has also been released since then, which I’ve added to the post. I also will be adding more to the Holika Holika Bulgarian Rose 12 Hr Moisturizer post later, maybe even tonight if I have the time.

I’m really tired at the moment but this is something that I really wanted to blog about. Hopefully, it will come out the way I want it to. Normally, I don’t like to get into politics but I also don’t like to deal with stupidity on a day to day basis. Bristol Palin recently made a blog entry in reply to President Obama’s take on gay marriage. You can read all about it here. I’m giving her more publicity but not like I really care. Her main point on her blog is the fact that President Obama’s view on gay marriage is influenced by his wife and daughters.

Obama: It’s interesting, some of this is also generational,” the president continued. “You know when I go to college campuses, sometimes I talk to college Republicans who think that I have terrible policies on the economy, on foreign policy, but are very clear that when it comes to same-sex equality or, you know, sexual orientation, that they believe in equality. They are much more comfortable with it. You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we’re talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn’t dawn on them that somehow their friends’ parents would be treated differently. It doesn’t make sense to them and, frankly, that’s the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective.

Okay…so which part of this makes it seem like his stand on gay marriage is solely influenced by the views of his daughters and wife? From what I see, he’s spending good quality time with his family. Isn’t that something that a “Christian” nation emphasizes? What family do you know doesn’t affect each other? Just because you’re family might not care about anything you say doesn’t mean that every one else’s family is the same. If you’re kids are important to you, you listen to what they have to say and if there’s nothing wrong with it, why tell them no?

Bristol: So let me get this straight – it’s a problem if my mom listened too much to my dad, but it’s a heroic act if the President made a massive change in a policy position that could affect the entire nation after consulting with his teenage daughters?

This logic is dumb to begin with so I’m going to give a dumb answer in response: Yes, if his teenage daughters are smarter than both you and your mom combined.

Bristol: While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads.

How is he not being a dad? He’s interacting with this daughters, taking the time to talk to them and listen to their opinions. Last time I checked, that was good for a family. We all know what happens to children that are neglected or told that they are wrong all the time.

Bristol: In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.

Oh, Bristol…you really out did yourself on this one. Let’s focus solely on the “thousands of years of thinking about marriage” part. Did you know that thousands of years of thinking about marriage also emphasizes the importance of marriage and family? Last I checked, you got knocked up at 18 and your baby daddy is now expecting a child with another woman. You can’t even set an example, yet you will bash the view points of someone else?

I wouldn’t quote Jershy Shore members on anything but JWoww did say something worth quoting.

JWoww: Bristol should keep her uneducated, ignorant mouth shut. If you’re living in the past you wouldn’t have a kid without marriage. Hypocrite. It’s 2012!

I couldn’t have said it better. Before you start pointing out flaws of others, you should start with yourself and that of your family. It’ll keep you busy for a while.

Bristol: we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.

Right….cause we all know you turned out to be the loviest of people growing up with a mom and a day. End sarcasm. If father’s help shape their kids’ worldview, I would strongly encourage Obama to keep doing what he is doing. Your dad, on the other hand, should have been removed far far away from you and the rest of your family. His viewpoints have done nothing to this nation but create a family of ignorant, worthless pieces of crap.

Bristol: I guess we can be glad that Malia and Sasha aren’t younger, or perhaps today’s press conference might have been about appointing Dora the Explorer as Attorney General because of her success in stopping Swiper the Fox.

Dora the Explorer comes with some pretty good life lessons. Watch and episode or two, it might turn you into a decent human being. Again, dumb comments deserve dumb responses.

Bristol: Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee.

What is the right way? The way where your children will always be wrong but you’re right? The way where you keep them in the smallest of bubbles that they don’t even realize there is a real world? Believe it not Bristol, there are real world issues…not something you only see in Glee. Maybe you should stop watching Glee…

Personally, I do not care if you are for or against gay marriage. Everyone is entitled to their opinions as I am to mine. I do not expect to change anyone’s view points nor do I expect anyone to change mine. However, for anyone to take such a strong stand point on it, I would also expect you to fully support and practice the ideals of a perfect marriage. Yet, you’re not even married. If you can’t practice everything you preach, you have no right judging and bashing others when you’re full of flaws and lash out at people who do point them out. I would have much more respect for her if she was against gay marriage but stood her ground on all views as to what marriage in America should be.
