Happy Valentine’s Day, America. I don’t believe in the whole thing, as it’s a cheesy, manufactured holiday for the card, salon, floral, and restaurant industries, etc. It’s not an American or Jewish holiday, so it’s simply not important to me. Men spend way more on it (than women), not because they want to, but because they feel obligated and forced to spend on women. Who wants something someone is artificially forced to give you, rather than something they spontaneously want to give you of their own volition? But guys gotta do it, or they’ll be “in the doghouse.” Sad.
On the other hand, our “friends”, the Saudis, are prohibiting red roses today, because they say that the flowers and the whole Valentine’s Day thing is against Islam. Why? Well, it encourages men and women who are not married to mingle. Islamist crackdowns on Valentine’s Day isn’t anything new. But, gee, I wonder what happened when Saudi Ambassador Adel Al-Jubeir and his homely pro-HAMAS then-concubine, er . . . girlfriend, Campbell Brown, “mingled” (euphemism) on a trip together to Saudi Arabia.
As you’ve noticed, all week, I’ve been posting JPEG images of candy hearts with different politically appropriate messages on this site (including many that angered the whackjobs at the Nazi-funded Media Matters for America, yesterday). I made them at the Candy Heart Generator, and it’s kind of become a fun, time-wasting addiction. You can make your own in a choice of several pastel colors, plus black goth hearts for things and people you hate.
Here are some more of the hearts I’ve produced, followed by some of the ones I’ve previously posted that got the liberals so hoppin’ mad. Most relate to things I’ve discussed on this site, and for those you might not understand, I’m trying to link to the appropriate columns and posts on this site.
Happy Valentine’s Day, America, and especially to our troops overseas and their families. . . .
