Please Do Not Condemn ALL OF US




Cries around the world today are condemning the United States for the actions of one idiot.

PLEASE do not condemn all of us.  Not all of us voted for the imbecile.  Not all of America agrees with his actions. He has gone against every value that America holds dear, all after promising to uphold them.  Is this grounds for impeachment?  I sure as hell hope so.  Because this is just the beginning--and the world cannot survive him and his actions for too long.

LOL--How to Destroy your Business in one easy step


Knitting store: no yarn for women's movement protesters




FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) — The owner of a Tennessee knitting store doesn't want anyone buying its yarn for arts and crafts for the women's movement, following weekend protests by marchers in knitted, pointy-eared hats.
The Tennessean newspaper reported that (http://tnne.ws/2k4Ne5u ) the comments Tuesday on the Facebook page of The Joy of Knitting store in Franklin drew thousands of responses — both support and vows of a boycott.
The social media post by Elizabeth Poe said that as a business owner and a Christian, she promotes values of "mutual respect, love, compassion, understanding, and integrity." She called the women's movement "counterproductive" to unity.
"With the recent women's march on Washington, I ask that you if you want yarn for any project for the women's movement that you please shop for yarn elsewhere," the social media post says. "The vulgarity, vile and evilness of this movement is absolutely despicable."
 
The post came after thousands of movement marchers Saturday wore the pink, pointy-eared hats they called "pussyhats" — partly responding to Trump's past caught-on-camera remarks about grabbing women's genitalia.
It's unclear whether the store sold any yarn to people who attended the massive march in Washington, .D.C, or the protest in nearby Nashville that was one of many held around the world Saturday.
Poe told The Tennessean that her phone has been ringing nonstop since she made the post. She said she has received more positive private messages than what's visible on the store's Facebook page.
Many commenters on social media called the post bigoted and hypocritical, and they vowed to take their yarn business elsewhere. Others applauded Poe for expressing her strong beliefs.
"This is starting to undermine their efforts," Poe told the newspaper. "... I think if you want to get your point across you need to do it the right way and I just think that walking around dressed as a vulva is gross. Hatred is not acceptable speech."

Well first off--Elizabeth Poe COULD have just kept her mouth shut and her hands off her keyboard, and this would have blown over fairly soon.  Instead, she has earned herself the Idiot of the Month Award.

Secondly--when did a cat hat with pointy ears become a vulva??  I, and my cats, are all offended by such an idiotic remark. Elizabeth Poe needs an anatomy lesson.

And last but not least, basically telling the majority of women that , not only are they not welcome to have the honor to buy your overpriced yarns, they should also be ashamed for standing up for themselves and all women.

In a couple months, if that, there will be an empty storefront in Tennessee up for rent--
just don't put another yarn shop in there, and you should be ok.

Umm Hmmm


So you voted for Trump............

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?????? 

And the really sad thing is, you don't even realize yet what you have done--but you WILL.  
Right up until Trump is impeached. And you will have no one to blame but yourselves.
You have basically put an emotional 13 year old  man/child in the highest seat in the country--
God Help Us.
And in case anyone is wondering--my own CHILDREN voted for this fool, believing he would change their lives for the better. Which only goes to show you three things--It is easy to believe lies when you are desperate;  BLM GAVE the win to Trump due to their ridiculous actions and the frustration they caused America over the past year-- and you can raise your children right--but you cannot give them common sense.

Such a Proud Moment (NOT)

I tried very hard to avoid all the Inaugural crap today, but honestly--
such a proud moment, to see our new First Lady walk into the Ball with a skirt slit up to her crotch.   Such class.
I guess she is making it easier for Trump to--you know---

 I guess it is true after all--money really can buy you anything, even the Presidency of the United States.
Today, I am ashamed to be an American.

Words of Warning as you get older!

The week I turned 64, I began to get mail--LOTS of mail, at least three a day and sometimes more--about
medicare
social security
burial plots
cremation
estate planning 
(and MEDICARE--did I mention MEDICARE???) 

I just want to thank all the greedy American companies who have spent a fortune in postage and mailing supplies in the past year, all trying to get my measly retirement dollars out of my hand before they are even IN my hand.

 I also want to thank you for reminding me on a daily basis that I am an old woman and that I am going to die. NEWS FLASH---
I already KNOW I am going to die, I don't need it shoved in my face Every. Freaking. Time. I. Open. The. Mailbox.

Being 5 months older than dear hubby, now it is HIS turn to get all the mailings.  I turn 65 this week, the mail for me has dropped off--I guess they figure I am already dead, so why bother?  So now the same letters arrive, addressed to Wade.  I wish I had thought of this a year ago, but now we take those letters and write "return to sender" on them, and throw them unopened into the mail. Let the idiots pay the return postage.  You can also open the dang things, usually there is a postage paid addressed envelope in them, and just write NO on a piece of paper and mail it back to them. Either way, they are paying double the postage--for nothing in return. Just my little way of saying "suck it up, Buttercup."

As with so many things in life, all I can do is shake my head (and sometimes my middle finger) .  America must be the greediest country in the world.  Is it going to get better when the circus comes to town on Jan 20?  LOL, you bet'cha!

You ain't seen nothing yet.
