The Nitty Gritty

But more than all of those I am an entertainer. I carry around a ukulele with me for the same reason a gangster carries a gun; better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Stage or sidewalk, Your Pal Pete shows are just where they happen.
Currently, I'm working on a musical, RagnaPOP(or she's got the bomb), set to premiere at this year's Capital Fringe Festival. I'm also working on music, comedy, and musical comedy; for kids and/or adults.
The fruit of these projects will be available on this site, so check back regularly!

Conservatives Are Terrible At Being Gay!

"This is a baby, This is a blessing from God. It is not a political statement. It is not a prop to be used in a debate by people on either side of an issue. It is my child."- Mary Cheney, openly gay daughter of Vice-President Cheney talking about her pregnancy. Really? Don't think so? I disagree, we live in a country where every gay family is a political prop; why is Mary Cheney exempt? The answer: she's not, saying she is doesn't make it so. She's obviously decided that the rights of people with her sexual orientation isn't as important as other issues facing this country, but she played "house lesbian" while this administration had made it clear that they cannot recognize two lesbians and a baby as a real "family". So questions will be asked, rest assured.

And what of Ted "completely hetero" Haggard? He wasn't really gay, he was just acting out and after 3 weeks of prayer and counseling and all his homosexual urges are gone, while the rest of us sit in front of the schadenfreude channel and wait for the next time he "acts out".

This shows the intrinsic flaw in social conservative demonizing. Criminals are evil and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law, unless you're related to one and then it's just a bad decision. Celebrities are all rich elitists that have no right to express political opinions, unless you're Arnold Schwartzenegger. Homosexuals are trying to subvert the American family and recruit unsuspecting heteros into their "lifestyle choice" as part of a larger "Homosexual Agenda" unless you have known a few and realize that they're just like everyone else; we're all just trying to find our place in this increasingly confusing world.

Now, not only does she have to take crap from far right conservative nutcases, she also has the privilege of being crapped on by someone like you.

Congratulations!!

She has a special obligation to speak out against her daddy's administration's hypocrisy, and instead she's saying things like "She deserves to get crapped on if she's making statements like "This is a baby, This is a blessing from God. It is not a political statement." I'd say she deserves to get crapped on.
