Slather on the Mustard

I’m hungering for your intellect.
Let’s objectify each other’s minds.
Until we’re satiated and out of time.

I’m craving your principled stands sticking it to the man.
Let’s take a road trip to the other side of this fractured world.
Until we’ve exhausted our bank accounts and good will.

I double dog dare you to slather the mustard on your corndog until it resembles the yellow line running down your “The sun’s not yellow it’s chicken” back.
Patriotism is such a loaded word especially when the second amendment kills more people than it protects.
Yes it’s true I’m a liberal, but I’m hardly a bleeding heart and I will refuse to call myself a progressive until the day I breathe my last exhausted breath.

Senator Bernie Sanders being a Democratic socialist isn’t what’s keeping him out of the Whitehouse. Take it from a fellow Hebrew when I tell you it’s his being Jewish that makes it less than palatable for most people to vote for him.
We’re all about showing our love for Israel, but when push comes to shove most people could care less if Israel was pushed into the Sea of Galilee.

It’s not that I don’t want to give thanks. I’ve just never been very good at seeing the glass half full and oftentimes wonder why we cannot just smash the glass and stand or fall on our own two feet.
I’m not hiding in the closet, but I still refuse to discuss my sexual orientation with you. Oh, I’m as straight as they come, but even if I wasn’t what business would that be of yours?
I grew up with Bruce Jenner on the Wheaties box and I’m wondering if putting Caitlyn Jenner on that same box has been seriously discussed. I can’t stand Bruce and I’m really not sure what to make of Caitlyn and yet when I was eight years old it meant so much to me to see him on that box of cereal and I believe it would mean just as much, if not more, for children to see Caitlyn Jenner on that same Wheaties box.
