yolen: (What's this?)
So, as MB & I were waiting at the bus stop on the corner of the park that's a 2 minute walk from our building earlier today (on the way to meet [personal profile] fings for lunch), I saw a dude a few park benches down fall on the ground and sort of just start to flail around. I became alarmed and started fumbling for my cell phone when I noticed that Willie the Hot Dog guy and some of his crew were sitting on their plastic chairs calmly looking down the guy at Flailing Guy. "Shouldn't we call 911, isn't that guy having a seizure?!?!" I asked. "No", said Willie the Hot Dog Guy, "He's not having a seizure, he's just crazy". His 2 buddies quietly nodded in agreement. Ok, then!

After a few minutes, I was glad to see that someone had called 911 and an officer approached him and went away a few minutes later apparently satisfied that he wasn't in danger or anything. By that point, Flailing Guy was just muttering and gesticulating wildly. But he wasn't bothering anyone.

Poor guy, I'm sure he's in need of some serious long term aid.

Still, I am laughing about how this dude was flipping out on the ground, and how calmly the fellows at the hot dog stand were watching. It was like a scene from a movie, or something.

Rant ahead, hopefully mostly coherent, I'm running on fumes these days...

This is just plain appalling and wrong. And offensive and infuriating, speaking as a FAT Hispanic who has a 16 day old baby. I was fully aware of the fact that I needed to be careful with my weight gain during the pregnancy. My weight fluctuated towards the end of the pregnancy because of water retention, but I basically gained 15 pounds in real baby and baby related weight. My baby was 7lb 9oz and I was negative 5 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight a week after giving birth. My fat ass carried a baby and he is FINE & HEALTHY, he scored 8 & 9 on the apgar. I made sure to eat when I was hungry (and sometimes that hunger was so fierce, I felt I could cut a bitch if they got in the way of me and food) and not abusive "pregnancy privilege" and go insane "eating for 2"--I cannot for the life of me imagine what I would have been like and gone through if I was trying to shoot for no weight gain, or how that would have negatively impacted my son. My doctor, bless him, never gave me shit about my weight or weight gain and when I needed to be put on hypertensive meds halfway in the pregnancy, he didn't pontificate about how it happened cause of my weight. These assholes are full of shit, and certainly aren't giving a real shit about these mothers and their babies.

An hearty and robust FUCK YOU to all the assholes who voted against the civil rights of same-sex couples in AZ, CA, and FL. Oh, yes, and you assholes down in Arkansas who just voted against homosexuals fostering/adopting? FUCK YOU. Fucking SHAME on each and every one of you. I wish I could be more articulate than that right now, but I am too bitterly disappointed and disgusted by these fellow Americans of mine.

Oh, and Elizabeth Dole is running ads about her opponent being a godless atheist. And so what if she fucking is, BITCH!? This has fuck-all to do with working in the government! These people are making me crazy! The NewsHour w/Lehrer is making me sad with tonight's political sound bites. I can't fucking wait for this election to be over! If it weren't for my condition, I'd be getting so skunk drunk on Election night like I haven't in ages.

"Let's not retreat from wars that are almost won" said Sarah Palin at a campaign rally today. Really? The wars are almost won? How so? It's a fucking quagmire out there, sucking billions of dollars, and killing American soldiers and Iraqi/Afghani citizens; and has done nothing that I can see or understand to make us Americans safer at home or abroad. If I'm missing out on something, someone please enlighten me.
