Dear There Should Be... Hmm... I'll have to think 'bout that... (I mean, should I really be starting my own fan club?)
I have yet to make a comprehensive list of things that get me fired up. Many have pointed out that I am opinionated, but there is no authoritative list. But, I guess I could list some of them here for you. I'm glad you enjoy my rants. But, here are some things that get me fired up... in no particular order:
-Far-left leaning Democrats
-Ok... Drunkenness in general
-Carnies (circus folk... small hands)
-Movies with absolutly pointless sex scenes
-False Doctrine (or "Space Doctrine")
-People who try to back up their space doctrine using only one isolated quote from Bruce R. McConkie (often from before he was an apostle)
-Silly Criticisms of the Church
-Silly Criticisms of BYU (for both, intelligent and respectful criticism is always acceptable)
-The "weird" side of BYU and Mormon Culture
-Hilary Clinton (Can I just say: "They run the House like a plantation... you know what I mean..." [as said at a MLK Day event])
-Howard Dean (Hiyyyyaaaaah!!!!
-John Kerry ("I would be a better president... but I can't tell you how...")
-People who bash George W. Bush without ever reading or watching one of his speeches
-Weird Mormon Art
-Middle East Politics
-People who think Arab = Terrorist
-Group Stupidity(which can sometimes lead others to descriminate against that group or others similar... racism for example)
-Dennis Kucinich (on my list of Top Ten People who should not reproduce)
-Michael Moore (who has sullied the word "documentary" by passing overt political campaigning as impartial documentaries, also on the list mentioned above)
-Undeserved Self Righteousness
-Overt Mormon Commercialism ("Stripling Warriors, Momma's Boys"... yeah... wretching in my face mask)
-Mormon Pop Music... with a few rare exceptions
-People who bear their testimony saying: "I know Janice Kapp Perry is true."
-Extreme right-wing conservatives (I mean really
-Israeli policies toward the Palestinian people for the entire last century
-Ariel Sharon... and the words "man of peace" used anywhere referring to him (one of my beefs with Bush).
-The Late Yassir Arafat - I used to like him a lot, but I realised that he was a greedy and dishonest tyrant. I am glad he finally passed away... for the sake of his people.
-The Isreal-Palestine conflict in all its intricate details... sigh...
-Brown paper packages tied up with string (I mean... who uses string
-People who Lie
-Silly Reasons to go Inactive
-US Immigration Policy (we need a guest worker program)
-Grammar worse than my own (which is a pretty wide berth)
-Feminist criticisms of the church
-Homosexual criticisms of the church
-Apple Computers (fired up in a good way)
-Windows (fired up in a bad
way... but I can still get work done)
-People who, when I'm walking, drive like I drive when I'm driving and others are walking
-Rap Ringtones (give me silly polyphonic tunes any day... I have a plethora of them).
Um... well... that is quite a list. I know... random stuff. If you think I have missed anything, feel free to E-mail me
and add to the list. Or, if you want to get me fired up, feel free to ask a question.
That is all.
PS: Any ideas on making a Horatio-tastic Fan Club? Maybe I should ask Optimistic... his fan club seems to be up and running.
