Ho-kay.

Normally I don't do politics here; I like to consider my posts somewhat light-hearted and not very polarizing.

However, I...I had to share this monumental stupid with those of you who follow this blog.

This little ditty comes from the Urban Legends Reference Pages; specifically, their latest entry as of 8/5/08. As are the brunt of their more recent entries, this is very likely an exact reproduction of the contents of one of those oh-so-fun chain letters that get sent around. I'll cut it - and the rant - in case none of you wants to get your blood a-boilin'.


Tyson drops Labor Day holiday for Eid al-Fitr

You can bet that this action by Tyson is only the begining to removing more of the holidays and other symbols that made the United States of America the greatest country on earth.

FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR FAMILY, BE VERY CAREFUL WHOM YOU VOTE FOR IN NOVEMBER.


...

Yeah, real special, huh? Stupid, far-right-wing rhetoric pulled out of nowhere, including the ever-popular "Obama = Muslim = Evil" sentiment none-too-subtly implied with the last sentence, even though Obama isn't mentioned in the summary at all. "For the sake of your families" indeed, because Heaven forbid a company wants to celebrate a particular religion's holidays -_-
