Obligatory post noting delight in start of Obama Presidency/end of Bush reign

As a citizen of the world. I am pleased to note that today (soon) the free parts of said world will be getting a new leader. And getting rid of the old one. The getting rid of the old one is a very important part of the equation, but of course, there is much more significance to it than that as we all know. As I said I'm quite pleased, but those of you in the US (the reasonable sane ones anyway) must be downright chuffed! What a fine day!

About 9 minutes to go till things start kicking off so I'll celebrate with making fun of those people who are not exactly delighted at this turn of events. American Conservative Dickheads, otherwise known as "wingnuts". One of these wingnut organizations took issue with this:

“Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) is honoring American’s sense of
pride and freedom of choice on Inauguration Day, by offering a free doughnut of
choice to every customer on this historic day, Jan. 20. By doing so,
participating Krispy Kreme stores nationwide are making an oath to tasty goodies
— just another reminder of how oh-so-sweet ‘free’ can be.”

Oh my god the horror! Free doughnuts! People might get fat! And they used that word "choice" which means, something bad.. obvs. Yeah I know, what the fuck and why the fuck? Maybe someone from the American Life League can explain it:

“Just an unfortunate choice of words? For the sake of our Wednesday morning
doughnut runs, we hope so. The unfortunate reality of a post Roe v. Wade America
is that ‘choice’ is synonymous with abortion access, and celebration of ‘freedom
of choice’ is a tacit endorsement of abortion rights on
“President-elect Barack Obama promises to be the most virulently
pro-abortion president in history. Millions more children will be endangered by
his radical abortion agenda.
“Celebrating his inauguration with ‘Freedom of
Choice’ doughnuts - only two days before the anniversary of the Supreme Court
decision to decriminalize abortion - is not only extremely tacky, it’s
disrespectful and insensitive and makes a mockery of a national tragedy.

Oh I get it. They hate the word choice. They hate all choices and the very concept of choice because it's tied up with the whole abortion thing. Well at least they're being honest. Oh that and they don't like the particular free choice that their country made. Oh well.. watching these fuckers squirm will be as satisfying as everything else about the whole thing. Have a lovely Tuesday all :)

We are very, very chuffed, indeed, those of us who can think for ourselves. Thank you for your comments.
