Mrs. Buffy Jones-Smith-Hudson-Dayton
So, once again I was ahead of the curve.
I was reading Instapundit the other day and ran into this article. I was fascinated that NPR would do a story that is so critical of their base. I mean, isn't almost everyone who listens to NPR a pretentious ass?
Now let me tell you my story.
10 years ago I was in college, and taking an English course that basically consisted of writing for review. Lots of writing style, and I enjoyed the hell out of it. One week, instead of instruction, we were required to write a piece extemporaneously. We were not given any notice that we were having this assignment.
Classes were 4 hours long. we had the first two hours to read our choice of several articles and do online research. Then the last two hours we were to hand write the assignment. You may not know this, but my handwriting sucks. always has, and probably always will. But, I can make it legible if I write very slowly.
So I took ten minutes to select and read an article, and then started writing. The article I choose was about the trend toward hyphenated names. And on how unwieldy they were, both in the first generation, and even more so in the 2nd, and we don't even want to think about a third.
Once again it is the liberal, pretentious asses, thinking only of themselves, causing unintended harm to others.
Missy and Poindexter didn't think about how this hyphenated monstrosity would affect their children and grandchildren. All they thought about was how it 'Felt Good' to them in the present.
The hyphenated name debacle is a short course in liberal thought. We did it because it made us feel good; now you go live with the consequences.
More evdence of how liberal 'thought' isn't really:
They did this to THEIR OWN CHILDREN.
