Funnies from IMAO

Cindy Sheehan and Code Pink have started their "Bring the Troops Home Fast", where - in exchange for the following demands:
* The withdrawal of all U.S. from Iraq;

* No permanent bases in Iraq;

* A commitment to fund a massive reconstruction effort but with funds going to Iraqi, not U.S., contractors.

they promise to eat regular meals.

Amusingly, Sheehan's idea of a "fast" isn't the normal one of "no food, just water". It's "a diet of water, teas and juices". Possibly the occasional Wendy's Frostie, too, although I don't know if soquids are allowed.

And for those who aren't even willing to give up solid foods - no problem! You can join in the "rolling fast", where you only stop eating on designated days. Yes, you too can share quality hunger-time with such celebrities as Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Willie Nelson and the Rev. Al Sharpton.

"Stop eating on a designated day"? Guess what, Lefty Idiots, that's not fasting, that's DIETING. Of course "Bring the Troops Home Diet" just doesn't have that martyr-like ring to it.

Okay, wouldn't something like, oh, I don't know, withholding sex, work better?

I mean, the muslims have been fasting between sunrise and sunset for a whole month for hundreds of years (as well as assorted other religions' fasting times) and mostly people don't really care if it doesn't hurt them...

You haven't seen this women, have you? I don't think not having sex is much of an issue ;)
Ow. :)

But the core problem is pretty much the same: in certain areas of life, society doesn't much care what one does as long as their own pleasure and enjoyment isn't interrupted.
Exactly. I mean, I don't care one whit. But I wouldn't care if they were actually fasting, either ;)
