About

I’ve been pissy for a while, but I do smile.

I wish I had fancy qualifications to impress people with – to make you guys “oooooh” and “ahhhhh.” But I don’t. I’m just a random, extremely, maybe too opinionated Generation X.0 chick from the San Francisco Bay Area. I love politics and travel. My two passions. Traveling internationally has definitely shaped some of my political views. I’m almost 100% non-interventionist.

On the homefront, I identify with the Democrat Party.  Socially Liberal to the core. My parents are ultra Religious Conservatives – (mom voted for Huckabee).  I think I was left at their doorstep by gypsies.  That, or the Liberal university I attended brainwashed me. 😉 I’m not parroting what my professors told me from *ahem* 20-ish years ago. I can think for myself and have some views that are definitely not Liberal.

Anyway, the screaming heads of the GOP and Conservatives and their followers piss me off to no end.  The news and commentary I read and hear from them started my addiction. My sad, sad addiction.

I became addicted to the comments section of news articles, mainly on Yahoo! News. That place is The Jerry Springer Show of political commentary. Most responses to my comments were examples in eloquence, such as “Shut up, Libtard” or the clichéd, “Liberalism is a mental disorder.” I’d usually smack them around in my replies. Sometimes I would get pretty nasty, which made me worry about my karma.

I started this blog in January 2011 as a way to wean myself from the comments sections. It was also a way for me to write longer, mouthier, and more maddening (to some) comments.  I can also avoid not being called a Libtard every 30 seconds, comment-punching anyone, and I can read posts with substance. I’m not new to blogging. I stopped after Live Journal went “kaboom” and so did my entire blog.  I am new to political blogging, though.

This helps my head which gets too “spinny” (hence, the name) with politics.  It’s cathartic. It will probably get messy because it spins out of my head and drips from my bleeding heart.
