I'm over 60, and I think the show is great. But then instead of spending most of the year in sucky Arizona -- I come here only to run for President with the help of Tucson Weekly every four years and to run for Congress every two years -- I live in Brooklyn, where people have IQs and fashion sense a zillion times superior to anyone in a shithole like Arizona.
You don't understand: "Girls" is happy that people like you hate the show. If someone like you or most people in Arizona liked it, THEN it would be crappy.
Everyone in NYC hates Arizona and what it stands for.
In fact, the producers of "Girls" has asked HBO not to run the show on any cable providers in Phoenix and Tucson and instead run reruns of "Road Rules."
(Full disclosure: I am related to someone connected with the show and I write for Thought Catalog.)
And the only people I've ever advocated deporting are Republicans!:
People seem unable to understand irony. I was quoting those crazy people to illustrate just how racist, xenophobic and deluded they are. Those comments I was quoting were so over-the-top, I assumed that everyone realized that I was exposing them to show the utter bankrupt morals of the people who make up the Arizona Republican Party. Um, I got the Tucson Weekly's endorsement for President in the Green Party presidential preference primary last February and ran as the Americans Elect Party candidate in Arizona's Fourth Congressional District.
Only in checking back now, a week later, do I see people whom I agree with didn't recognize my motives. Evidently I need to stop being so ironic, but I live in Brooklyn and was born here and it's very hard.

Or just google me, for god's sake. But if you're too lazy, here's an excerpt from what one Washington political website called my "absurdist" campaign:

(b) receive in advance the written permission of Richard Grayson, who can be reached at richard.grayson (at) yahoo.com.
Arizona voters who disregard these requirements and vote for Richard Grayson will be considered presumptuous and merit our utter contempt.
I received the votes of the 1% in my race for Congress. Apparently, I'm not doing any better among the people who read Tucson Weekly online.
". Good morning, Mr.Grayson. Thank you for your entertaining and passionate posts.
But may I suggest reading the book of Matthew, Chapter 25?
Maybe after a few moments of respectful reflection, you could come back to tell us whether Jesus would have voted Republican.
I am not now and have never been a Christian.
But I do know that Jesus would not have voted Republican ever.
He had no photo ID!
Just from today at Sonoran Alliance, new outreach to Latino voters I happily repeat on "The Voice of Arizona Republicans" http://az-gop-voice.blogspot.com/:

This is so much Bull S__T. In other words give the criminals amnesty. We Republicans have tried for years to get School choice passed, that you can get a better quality education. God, God has always been first in our lives, but the hispanics having Illigitimate kid aftetr Illigitimate kid sure does not have God frist in their lives. And please tell me is God first when you criminals break the Law? Or is family first when you sneak across the border and drag a child with you? Is education first when you refuse to assimilate, want to be taught in Spanish, learn a bastardized form of Mexican history to form your own interpitation of what happened when America Bought the land you sold to us, and was generous enought to pay you twice?
You are a bunch of ungrateful interlopers, who have voted illegally to allow a Communist/Marxist in office, you fools it is going to be exactly like the third world Country you came from. Too ignorant to change your way of life in your country.

I am an American, first and foremost, with both my parents being born in Mexico. All of my family, whom are all of Mexican decent, are against granting any form of citizenship to illegal immigrants. I am not for destroying families which is not what enforcing immigration laws is about. The ones who have chosen to destroy their families are those who came here illegally knowing that the possibility of deportation or imprisonment was very high. Yes, I understand many came to better their lives but yet, they chose to break the law. No other country grants amnesty to illegals why should we? We have our own citizens and legally residents to worry about, provide them with jobs and opportunities to succeed. We have hundreds of thousands of people who obeyed our laws and did things the right way. My uncle is one for example. He was here on a work visa and when it expired, although it hurt him very much to have to leave this country which he loves, he chose to obey the law and return to Mexico. Republicans can grant amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrants, we will still not get their vote. They have the mentality of entitlements, of dependency. They come here now for the free handouts. Yes, the majority of Mexicans are social conservative but that wont matter to them. If they bishops and priests could not convince half of Catholics to vote pro-life, what makes us think ganting amnesty will gain us those hispanic votes?
Sgt. Flapjaw says: November 9, 2012 at 9:29 am Well I thought that just maybe all these progressives on here had dyed by rotting from within, guess not. Hispanics who are here illegally or on the dole, Catholics, youth, women who can’t have as much sex as they want because we won’t buy them rubbers, or provide abortions, kiddies who are affraid to loose Big Bird, Athiests who may see a religious symbol somewhere, teachers who care more about propagadization than education, LDS who care about filling the coffers than their god, Progressives who hate so much that they would ruin the country to feel good about themselves, On and on. All special interst groups, all political, all of the time. All of them looking for a free ride or power in some form or another.
patriotmom says: November 10, 2012 at 8:21 pm Nobama based his campaign on micro-campaigns to targeted groups. Wonder what all the kids who voted for Nobama will think when the money for school dries up, he doesn’t cut their student loan debts in half, the Obamaphones stop ringing and, thanks to Obamacare, there’s fewer jobs? To top it off, he wants amnesty for illegals so todays college grads will have even MORE people to contend against for jobs. What fun! Oh, and I would LOVE to see the faces on the young gals who voted Nobama back into the White House when they, as single women, have free contraceptives and NO JOBS. Maybe Eva Longoria can get them jobs as extras in Hollywood? They may not be working, but at least they don’t have to worry about getting pregnant…or a retirement plan. Then there’s the blacks who called themselves Christians while voting for the Party of Death. Their families will remain fractured, their illegitimacy numbers high, their unemployed numbers higher and their faith a pathetic joke. Calling themselves Christians while voting for a man who condones infanticide is beyond this evangelical. The Hispanics may actually get something out of their slavish devotion to the Dems, but I think there is already a movement afoot to slap Boehners overly-tanned face and yell, “Snap out of it!”. Illegals are already making demands and we know how well THAT worked in the past. As for the Asians, I don’t get it. Many are professionals and well-educated and yet they supported Nobama. Again, can’t wait for the bellyaching to start when the taxes hit- and MANY of them will be in the $200K range so they will be considered “rich”. Their curry will be cooked before they even know it. The gays are the only group who seem to be getting everything they want. Evidently the 30 years of brainwashing our young paid off. Next up will be the advocates for polygamy and incest ( as long as they are consenting adults, who is hurt? Right? ) followed by the NorthAmericanManBoyLoveAssociation (NAMBLA) and the sheep lovers. They make Sodom and Gommorah look like the Amish. I’m ordering my “Don’t Blame Me- I Voted Romney-Ryan!” bumpersticker. At least while the country is going to rack and ruin we can get some entertainment value out of it. Pop the corn and pull up the TV!
