Why The F%#& Are We Still Marching?!?

I have never considered myself a political person and I have no intention of using this blog as a platform for my political views. In fact, I’ve spent the bulk of my time recently bouncing around between nine different posts covering various topics like the worst reasons to have children, my anti-bridal shower manifesto, and reasons why my dog is my spirit animal.

One of the few that doesn’t compromise my quarter-assed (the amount you can muster when halfed-ass is just too much) commitment to my fitness and nutrition efforts. In addition, The Bachelor is one of the few shows that I typically watch live. My 97%-full DVR appreciates this.

So if I love it so much, why give it up? I’ve narrowed it down to three main reasons…
