I Walk The Line

by Stephanie

I don’t have much to say tonight. I’ve set aside some time tomorrow to sort out some thoughts. Yes, I have to schedule organized thought. If I don’t, it’s one complicated web of random thoughts that never make it to the computer screen.
But I read a hysterical article today and wanted to share it. Before I do, you should know two things:

1. Politically speaking, I am as moderate as it gets. On the conservative/liberal spectrum, I tow the line right down the middle. And I’m content with that. I don’t support parties. I support people.

2. I don’t consider myself to be particularly healthy. I’m painfully aware how bad my diet can be and what I should be doing to improve my overall health.

Now, that being said, here’s the link to the full article from Bill Maher on the Huffington Post website.


But if you’re not a fan of Bill Maher, as I’m sure many of you are not, here is my favorite part. The part that me laughing hysterically in my office this afternoon:

“President Obama has identified all the problems with the health care system, but there’s one tiny issue he refuses to tackle, and that’s our actual health.
And since Americans can only be prodded into doing something with money, we need to tax crappy foods that make us sick like we do with cigarettes, and alcohol — and alcohol actually serves a useful function in society in that it enables unattractive people to get laid, which is more than you can say for Skittles.”

I love this man’s unabashed brutal honesty and cleverness. It makes me happy.
