Standing in McDonald's yesterday morning, waiting to order, a song came on the sound system that I couldn't immediately identify but oddly knew by heart. Apparently the song rose to 3 on the billboard charts that year, but I honestly have no recollection of ever hearing this song, and yet I know every word of it. I was never an Eric Carmen fan. I never owned an Eric Carmen album. It probably hasn't been played on the radio since
We provide lifelong support to our Armed Forces and their families. If you know me, you'll know that running for me is like drowning for everybody else! No joke. I completely suck at it. But on every single run there is always one man in my head who reminds me I am a VERY lucky woman who has a choice to go running. My Uncle Robert.
Cartman is sometimes the main antagonist of an episode, for example " Trapper Keeper ". None of the other three main children really consider Cartman their friend and do not know why they started hanging out with him in the first place, but a certain form of unstable friendship ends up being born between them. However he is usually Kyle's first choice when he breaks his friendship with Stan.
His decisions are almost always driven by his own material or personal desires, and often feelings like sympathy or guilt are completely foreign to him, with the upmost rare, genuine exception. Cartman has often detailed his greatest desire since he was two years old, as being nothing less than ten million dollars, cash - and he is always willing to do whatever it takes, or to pursue any scheme, that will advance or achieve this end. No discussion of Eric Cartman can go by without covering his long and storied history of racial discriminatory behaviors, prejudice against various other groups, and other forms of bigotry. Taking responsibility for his actions is unnecessary when he can simply blame other groups for problems personal, local, national and even international in nature. Over the years, Cartman has exhibited anti-semitism, classism, homophobia, transphobia, internalized fatphobia, ableism, Islamophobia , unapologetic misogynism, racism towards African and Asian Americans, and also a particularly curious discrimination against Gingers , motivating the creation of a dangerous Ginger Separatist Movement.
