Things I’m Not Going to Write About – Miss Liberty America
August 17, 2011 by William K. Wolfrum
My desktop and browser is a place dreams go to die. Half-written stories or ideas lay about in different forms, taunting me. Of course, generally when I look back at them, I feel nothing but slight revulsion.
So it’s time to clear stuff off. Like the link on my browser to the B-Movie Title Generator. Or the notebook file that just has “Eco-Glamping” written on it. I’m never going to write of these things.
Nor am I going to write about the Miss Liberty America pageant, to be held July 4, 2012, so they say. Here’s how they describe it:
The ultimate mission is to promote Liberty, the military, and the Constitution. The contestants will be judged in categories of personal interview, swimsuit, evening gown, beauty, talent, the Constitution, and Marksmanship! This will be the first pageant of its kind to introduce competency in the handling, safety and use of firearms, and CPR! The contestants must be able to save a life as well as defend one!
Miss Liberty America pageant will bring a fresh and modern approach in promoting and reeducating our youth on the Constitution. We want and need our youth to reclaim America and bring her back to Greatness! Let your voice be heard, your passion be felt, your talent and beauty be seen! Miss Liberty America will shine as a beacon of hope…
“PROMOTING LIBERTY AND THE AMERICAN WAY!”
Hell yeah. Don’t get me wrong, I’d watch this event. You’d be crazy not to. Finally, a beauty pageant that almost certainly will end in gun violence and CPR. And swimsuits. And repeated call for government overthrow.
Seriously, tho, I see the humor there. It just creeps me out. So I won’t be writing about Miss Liberty America.
