Sweeping Generalities

Judging from some of the emails I am getting, its time I address something.

This website is for your entertainment. If you are not entertained, leave immediately by clicking here. Otherwise, shut the F up and enjoy the site.

So I generalize. This a common tactic employed by most of the the mainstream news/entertainment industry today. All conservatives are rich, every Democrat is a hippie, all Black people have guns...etc... Its just how it works. When people can compartmentalize others, encapsulating the entire range of emotions, thoughts and opinions of another person into one simple word like "Liberal" or "Extremist", its more fun. Its safer, the generalizer feels more confident is his/her understanding of others, allowing for said statements above that either confirm previously held beliefs, furthers ones point/argument concerning said generalized person/group, or used to comedic effect.

Some of you, like I do, find liberal application of labels disturbing and misguiding, responsible for many of the problems in modern American society.

Additionally, most of you, like I do as well, find labels funny.

Am I contributing to the problem? Quite possibly. Do you like to read my blog? Yes you do. So shut up about it.

Of course I realize that things aren't exactly as I've stated them below, and of course I understand there is always more nuance in any situation which make statements like "everyone who works retail is an idiot" untrue. But whatever, in some, small way this label applies.

Plus, I am always right. At least on my website.

Peace.
