Democracy in Action! Vote for the Sunday Rant!

Dear Everyone:

I’m loving how this blog has fallen into a pattern: advice Monday through Thursday, feedback (hate mail) on Friday and the Sunday Rant.  What has also been a recurring theme is polling the readers on Saturday for the Sunday Rant topic.  This is great for three reasons:

1. My readers have the chance to experience what it feels like when their vote truly counts for a change.  Let’s face it, that isn’t happening anywhere else.  I voted for Obama because I didn’t want any more senseless killing in foreign countries, and that shit has been stepped up in the form of pussy drone attacks.  Damn you, Barack.  I so wanted to love you, but maybe that was my white guilt talking.


and this:

Obama cartoon

2. It gives me a light writing day so I can focus on other things like my hangover and taking care of my kid for once. Where is he, anyway…?

3. I already forgot the third point.  Fucking hangover.


OK, here are your choices for tomorrow’s rant.  If you have other suggestions, please email them to me at No, Dad, I am not going to write about the “Baby on Board” stickers.  Those are obnoxious and stupid and relevant about, oh, 25 years ago.  Stop asking (5 times already!) and consider a visit to a neurologist.

[polldaddy poll=7567389]

As usual, here is my weekly plea for help: please share the blog with anyone you know who has a high threshold for being offended by what they read.  I am writing a guest blog next week on a site that gets 15,000 hits PER MUTHAFUCKIN DAY (more on that Monday) and I feel a momentum surge happening.

Anything you can do to help will be much appreciated and rewarded when my ship comes in.  I will let you come to the pier and wave at me on my ship, and then I’ll throw some autographed singles down to you as the boat pulls away and heads for Hawaii.  Can’t you just picture it?


Things are happening, children, I can feel it.  I always knew I had something great in me, but when I gave birth to Jake I thought that was it.  Turns out there’s something else in there!

Gotta go, suddenly I have to use the potty.  Cheers and enjoy the day.  And GO DUCKS!

    After you vote, it suggests leaving a comment, so I did but was not able to find a button to post or submit the comment (which was profound) but maybe it’s the cheapo iPad. Ps–i still love Obama. It is a failing of mine.

    Just curious re whether the stupid fat munchkin massaging her own belly with the message about secrets of losing belly fat pops up all over your devices. Drives me nuts, but not worthy of a Sunday rant. Also the anti-gluten gospelettes preaching the terrors of wheat. What would happen to life as we know it without pasta, cookies and bread:)

    Politics. Yuck!! Enough said on that topic. I rhink Baby on Board stickers have been largely replaced by My kid is an honor roll student stickers. Which are also annoying. I like my stickers. Women who seek to be equal to men lack ambition. Then there’s Stop Lifetime Alimony in NJ sticker. At least they represent me rather than applauding that your kid can memorize facts for a test. Maybe you can do a rant on annoying bumper stickers one week.

      I like the bumper sticker that says “My Golden Retriever is Smarter than your Honor Student.”

    I voted for gossip simply because you’re not old enough to write about the aging body/what the fuck/who is that old woman in the mirror. Try again in 10 years, kiddo.

      You got THAT right! And you are not old enough to refer to yourself as “Ancient Auntie” either! And last time I saw you outside Janet’s house, you looked like a million bucks, so quiet down young ladies! Smiles all around.

        I beg to differ, and this is why I am a huge fan of plastic surgery. Lift it, pull it, tuck it, suck it, I don’t care – just get in there, good doctor, and do yo thang.
