This is just plain wrong

This isn't what I was going to say today, but a friend pointed out that "Deviant Art" is dropping the ball big time.  Here's what my friend had to say:

Dear Deviant Art:
How long will it be before you open your eyes and see that the 'joking' stamps about rape are not jokes, that they are warning signs that the person who makes them sees rape as funny and encourages others who think like they do? We report them and you seem to just giggle and ignore us, as if you agree with these sociopathic cretins that keep making these violent stamps. Well starting today, each time one comes to my attention there will be a post about it on all my blogs and on FB and Twitter. Oh and on Care2 as well. I want the world to see that Deviant Art seems to have a hatred of women and encourages that attitude. 
Shame on you for supporting rape, for that tells me you care little for the welfare of the women in your lives and I feel such sympathy for them. 
And so people can see what you support, let's share a link or three shall we? And I ask all who read this to report these stamps and even reblog this to get more people to pressure DA into doing the right thing.

Really? Some things are just plain wrong, and this is one of them. Okay, Deviant Art, time to wake up and fix this.

Tea Party? No!

Until the "Tea Party" is officially designated as a viable political party, we really need to stop using that term. At the very least, add in the word "Republican." Why? Because there will be no "Tea Party" designation on the ballots come election time. There are those who will look for their favorite "Tea Party" candidate....

Second, I really don't like the term "Tea Party" since it kind of means that they are patriots of some sort. Patriots with a very skewed sense of history. Apparently, all that tea was dumped into the Boston Harbor to stop the British from taxing us and the "Tea Partiers" are all about no taxation.... They forget about the other two words: "without representation."

I say we go back to calling them "Tea Baggers" since the term fits... "Tea Bagger Republican". I like the sound of that......
