Damn. I am so mad that I missed the big announcements made by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Thankfully, due to the intersection of tubes and whatnot, I am able to stream them at my convenience. The boys, who in my opinion provide the best news coverage anywhere (although I like Rachel Maddow, too), use comedy to tell it like it is and shoot us straight in the irrational ass.
If you have not already, you should watch these videos:
Here are some suggested rally signs/posters, thanks to Stewart:
- I disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.
- 9/11 was an outside job.
- I am not afraid of Muslisms, Tea Partiers, socialists, immigrants, gun owners, gays.
If you have ever called, labeled, implied, suggested or even mentioned Hitler in the same paragraph as a given political party or it's leader(s) then you are in need of rational thought. Not that you are a bad person. It's okay. Everyone freaks. As Stewart said: "take it down a notch."
I've noticed liberals and conservatives linking to these videos (or news stories about these rally videos) all over Facebook and it gives me great comfort to know that there are people aplenty who desire rational thought above emotional and illogical hate-mongering.
A little peace does the soul a lot of good, whether it's given by God or your own intelligent mind.
