This is going to be quick. Here’s the article. This is crap. One of the few things I like about Gingrich is the fact that he usually speaks his mind. When did we become a nation of “I’m sorry”. Stop freaking apologizing. Guess what? I’m not saying I’m sorry about a political opinion. Gingrich doesn’t like Ryan’s Medicare plan. Get over it.
What a bunch of pussies! Yes, you read that right. We’re becoming a bunch of political pussies. If you have an opinion, at least have the freaking balls to stand by it. If people don’t like it, tough shit. We whine about how our politicians lie to us. Well, they do that because we jump down their throats when they tell the truth. So, they lie and tell us that the check’s in the mail, they love us and they promise not to cum in our mouths and we, excuse the pun, swallow it. Then, we get mad when the truth of how they really feel comes out.
Good Lord, people! Get a freaking grip!
I saw this article that Bristol Palin is apologizing for rants that she and her sister posted on Facebook. And, all I can say is, why? The article didn’t list exactly what the rants said, but isn’t that part of her Freedom of Speech? Why should she have to apologize? And, certainly, she shouldn’t have to apologize for her kid sister, Willow. Willow’s 16, I think if she felt that an apology was necessary, she would make it.
I think we’re going a little too far in this apology business. Someone says something that someone else finds offensive and the first someone apologizes. Well, what a bunch of bull. You said it, stand by it! Besides, I don’t ever believe those apoligies are sincere anyway. Public apologies are offerred to make the public happy – that’s why their public. I’m not saying that Bristol isn’t sincere, how would I know? And, how would she know? Who is sincere at 18 or 19 years old anyway?
So, let’s call a truce on apologies. Let’s all try to say what we mean and what we believe. If we find out later that our beliefs were wrong, then say, “Hey, sorry about that, I had my head up my ass and I was wrong.”
And, let’s grow some thicker skins out there. If someone says something you find offensive – especially if they’re a celebrity – don’t buy the products they endorse or watch the shows their on. Send them a message that you think they’ve got their head shoved so far up their rear end that they need a glass stomach to see. But, don’t expect an apology. I’m pretty tired of them.
How about you?
