wow what a surprise another cis-gendered white upper-middle class american male telling someone what they can and cannot identify as. why don’t you go fuck yourself
Hey Dad, I have a question
Alright, lets see if it's within my reach
What do you think of cultural appropriation?
I think you mean acculturation.
yeah, I do. But I was using the term the Social Justice Morons use.
It's a necessary part of being human, you can't just keep the one culture all of your life!
So how offended would you be if a bunch of white people started speaking Spanish?
Offended? I would be glad, at least they speak my language!
What if a white guy made tacos?
what kind of taco? why would I be offended? Did I invent it and patent it?
Nope, just an ordinary taco made by a white guy.
Why would I be offended? It would like a German guy getting offended because I grilled a hamburger
Well, because it's a Mexican food, it was discovered and is integral to Mexican culture. What if a white person doesn't respect the history of the taco.
When the woman who first created a taco did that, did the Angels descend from heaven with a deed and a copyright form signed by God informing us that only Mexicans can make it?
Nope. It's just a taco.
Precisely, it's a taco, eat it. I would actually be happy for that white guy, tacos are pretty good.
What if Tyler wanted to celebrate El Dia de Los Muertos? On his own?
Tell him to pace himself the skulls are made of pure sugar.
What if he wanted to celebrate El Dia de la Independencia?
Culture is not something handed to you by God to protect and nurse, it's just something that happens to you, and when you think you have it figured out, it changes. That's what cultures do. They change. You know what these people are trying to do, right?
They want us all to hate each other and not speak to each other. They want us Mexicans in Mexico, Afro-Americans in Africa, Asians in Asia and none of us talking or being nice to each other. With no resources, no trade, no rights, and only the one language that only we're allowed to speak so that we can't communicate with anyone outside. And that's after they'd kill off all the white people. They're like the KKK, if the KKK didn't have balls.
I arrived at the same conclusion.
Make yourself a coffee.
Just be sure it's Mexican *laughs*

MY TIME TO SHINE FUCK YOU ALL
You know that feeling where you know you meant to say something but it came out totally different than what you planned? Yeah that’s what happened with my rant about politics. I don’t know if what I meant to say was better or worse but it’s definitely different.
I’m going to go on a rant about something I’m really not super interested in: politics. This is going to be rather long and not super well-informed but hopefully I can convey my thoughts and opinions in as concise and well thought out way as possible.
I keep thinking politics should be something to get interested in because the way it’s supposed to work is politicians deal with the people who they represent and the people are supposed to be represented fairly by their elected official so in theory I should have a great stake in every election and the right to vote should be super important. As I’ve grown up, though, I see this isn’t necessarily the case at all. Americans tend to have a cynical view of the voting process and every year it seems like a chore to get the American people to vote. And, in a sense, they are right. The idea that every vote counts may hold true at local levels like electing city council members or even the mayor of a town but the fact is these people fall under a lot of restrictions by the state and even the federal government so even to change something at a city level requires the politicians at the state or federal level.
This must mean that state and federal elections are important right? Yes, they are. But there are so many people that state and especially federal government officials have to represent that the people don’t count anymore and the idea that every vote matters gets lost in the sea of American people who have the right to vote. Also, every state and federal official has to fund his or her own campaign. Let’s face it, that’s not cheap. They get money from these sponsors, campaign partners, whatever they’re called and that money makes them no longer accountable to the tax-paying voter; or at least not as accountable as they are to people who give them money. If they weren’t it’d be like saying you don’t feel obligated to pay back a friend for money they lent you.
I’m not saying this is any new thing or that it’s some giant problem we need to fix. I get it, campaigns need funded and they always have. My point is that as much as Americans would like to think “democracy” equals complete freedom and total say in the government it can’t possibly be that way. The idea that some Americans think that what they think about how the country should be run is the only way to run it and if everything they want doesn’t end up happening they have the right to complain and in a way they do but there’s a huge difference between making constructive complaints about important and big issues that a person feels aren’t being addressed the correct way and throwing a tantrum because the person you’re blaming isn’t a gun-toting, Christian, all-American, white, male. I get there are people on the liberal side who are JUST as vocal about this stuff but where I’m from all I see is red. The thing is the idea that ONE person has the power to change anything (whether that be at the local, state, or federal level) is pretty much exactly the opposite of the way the government in this country was founded. There’s a million steps that have to happen for anything to change and for the most part, I support the steps. It keeps too much power from being in the hands of any one person. That being said, the biggest problem I have with the government today is the inability to work together to accomplish anything. Congress has become more of a playground for two cliques who rule the schoolyard to fight and bicker over who has the best ideas rather than working together to see that when you combine ideas from both sides you can actually get results. However, because these people in Congress have to make their party members happy so they can get support for their campaigns, that can’t happen and we end up in a state of perpetual stalling until all the red tape is done exactly right. That’s what irks me.
Another one of the biggest problems in this country is the idea that the President has the power to change things right away. This misconception has irked me ever since I learned in high school that really the only power the president has is to veto bills from Congress. I get that since the introduction of a global world the President has taken on role of the leading ambassador of the country and that other countries look to him to see what kind of a country we run first but that still doesn’t give him all the power. If a person is upset at something the President is doing (or isn’t) it’s more likely a problem with the way Congress is addressing the problem that is the reason why the person is upset. No matter what the President is accountable to someone. He’s never the sole ruler of the land and it would be unconstitutional to even come near the line. There are people who say the presidents are assuming absolute control but honestly these people need to stop watching FoxNews (or watch a comparable amount of a different news network that is biased in a way that isn’t to the right) and look at facts. News networks will always skew facts to make the story more appealing to their audience. To get the truth in any story (major, minor, or other) everyone should seek out different sources because there is no such thing as a completely unbiased news source.
I have a feeling I got off-topic here somewhere and though there wasn’t a clear thesis here (more like opinions about three or four different things related to politics) I think this will suffice for now. Let me know how much of this is just totally wrong because government is definitely not my thing.
i have lost my pants
someone help me find my pants
