What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

There’s a lot on my mind lately. Personal issues, of course, are always on my mind. But there are many other issues that really get my blood boiling! 

“My Body, My Choice” seems to be the go-to slogan for those opposed to mask wearing and vaccines, but when it comes to women having autonomy over their own bodies, that slogan doesn’t apply. Such hypocrisy!

I don’t believe that abortion should be used as a form of birth control. However, no female should be forced into having a child that was forced upon her; the result of a rape. And why shouldn’t a woman (with her partner, if applicable) be able to terminate a pregnancy that isn’t viable for some reason, like in a tubal pregnancy? There are many circumstances that can result in the death of the woman. Why isn’t her life important? Women should have autonomy over their own bodies! If you don’t believe in abortion, then don’t get one but don’t go pushing your damn beliefs on others!!

Anti-Vaxxers and Anti-Maskers where the hell do you get off harassing others for getting the vaccine or wearing masks? If you have the right to choose for yourself, then others should have the same right, even if that choice is different than yours!!! STOP making asses of yourselves and mind your own business!

I just don’t know what’s wrong with some people! Why would people go into businesses, such as restaurants, drug stores, and airports, screaming and yelling at the employees? It doesn’t matter the reason. So what if they’re too slow or if they ask you to wear a mask. The employees are doing the best they can, perhaps working with less staff than normal, and they aren’t the ones who have ordered the mandates. STOP making things more difficult for them! They’re just doing their job. Here’s a solution: GO SOMEWHERE ELSE IF YOU DON’T LIKE THEIR PRACTICES!

Let’s not forget the protestors harassing women and children walking to and from school! It is NOT child abuse to get your children vaccinated! Vaccines save lives. Do a little research and you’ll see how many lives have been saved from diseases like polio, measles, rubella, pertussis, etc. over the past decades! If you don’t want to vaccinate YOUR children from Covid-19, then that’s on YOU if your child becomes ill and dies. THAT would be YOUR fault and THAT would be child abuse, IMO!

Do I sound angry? You bet your ass I’m angry. I’m sick and tired of people behaving like spoiled rotten children. I’m saddened at what the future of the United States looks like. I grew up with a great love and respect for this country and I still love my country, but I am totally ashamed and disgusted with some people, hypocrisy, and hatefulness that seems to have swallowed us whole. 

 

What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

Oh, so many things are eating at me these days. It seems the state of this country is in the toilet. Everything is such a mess! It’s exhausting and I know I’m not alone in feeling the way I do. Here’s a quick run-down of What’s Eating Aunt Debbie:

  1. You’d think the damn police would be on their best behavior these days and following procedure, to-the-letter, to protect themselves and their department from bad publicity and lawsuits. But no. More police shootings occur. More wrongful deaths happen. Unnecessary violent treatment on routine traffic stops. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! You don’t need to draw your gun on a routine traffic stop. You don’t need to shoot an unarmed person! There is no need for excessive force when you’ve already got the suspect on the ground and handcuffed! You do NOT need to shoot a man in the back!
  2. Joel Greenberg, Seminole County, FL tax collector faces a total of 33 federal charges…including sex trafficking, fraud, and bribery. What the hell is wrong with people these days? Give them an inch, they take a mile. LOCK HIM UP! What scumbag will have that position next?
  3. Matt Gaetz. Where to start? The investigation into Greenberg led the feds to Matt Gaetz, who faces charges of sex trafficking and sex with a minor. Gaetz reportedly asked then-President Trump for a blanket pardon. Who the hell does that? Requesting a blanket pardon tells me all I need to know about someone. Another scumbag in politics. LOCK HIM UP! 
  4. Many people, when asked why they have a problem with the LGBTQ Community, they will say, “that way of life is against my religion.” That’s ridiculous. Their lifestyle doesn’t have a damn thing to do with you. If GOD thinks it’s a problem then let GOD take care of it! Here’s a thought: If God created everyone, then he also created every single gay, lesbian, trans etc., person in the world. Maybe God created them the way they are. Maybe it’s all a part of God’s plan. Maybe God is trying to teach us all something! Pay attention!

Well, that sums up the bullshit that’s clouding my brain this this time around. I’m sure more will come next week! What’s eating you these days?

If you don’t like what I have to say that’s your prerogative. This is my blog and I’ll express my opinion as I please. Just remember, I know how to delete comments and ban people from my blog/page

 

How Stupid Can They Get?

I’ve heard some absolutely ignorant things before and I just can’t keep it bottled up anymore! It amazes me how stupid people, commercials, politicians, etc., can be and I’ve decided to make lists here periodically, maybe weekly at the rate these morons are going! So, let’s see how many people I can piss off, shall we?

  1. Regarding Dr. Seuss….Dr. Seuss was NOT cancelled! I wish people would actually read and try to comprehend what they’re reading for once. The publisher, NOT Joe Biden, has pulled 6 titles (titles most of us are unfamiliar with) for racial images that are offensive. The publisher has decided that those books would not be printed anymore. There are still dozens of Dr. Seuss books for you to choose from, in book stores and libraries everywhere, so just stop being stupid!
  2. Ron Johnson…Those rioters on Jan. 6 “were Patriots and were people that loved this country,” he says. Give me a break! Patriots would not have tried to overturn the vote. Patriots would not have attacked this country’s Capitol. Patriots would not have threatened the lives of our elected lawmakers and the Vice President. He says, “and if those tens of thousands of rioters were Black Lives Matter and Antifa protestors, I might have been a little concerned.” Umm… Those rioters whom he called Patriots, battered police with a multitude of weapons: metal flagpoles, baseball bats, wrenches and clubs, and guns, bombs, stun guns and other weapons were also seized. He didn’t feel threatened? He goes on to say that those rioters “love this country, that truly respect law enforcement, would never do anything to break the law, and so I wasn’t concerned…” They respect law enforcement? Really? They wouldn’t do anything to break the law? What fucking planet is this guy from?
  3. Ted Cruz…So, while his constituents and fellow Texans are without power, water, and heat Ted Cruz packs his bags and heads to Cancun for a vacay with his family because their house is “freezing”! Then he tries to cover by saying he was being a good dad. He could have been a good dad by sending his family to Cancun and a good leader by staying to help the people of Texas. He says he was coming right back. Liar, liar. Pants on fire. Do these politicians think we the people of this great country are that stupid? Well, apparently some are but I digress.
  4. Lindsey Graham…Graham says migrant children “are children today but could easily be terrorists tomorrow.” HIS orange leader and his followers attempted a coup of the US government, which resulted in the deaths of at least 4 people, and threatening the lives of elected officials and Graham deflects the blame to poor, tired and ill treated immigrant children? Put a sock in it, you old douchebag.
  5. Hate Crimes against Asian Americans….There’s a special place in hell for people who are blaming Asian Americans for the Coronavirus! Just because that idiot 45 called it the “China virus” does not mean it’s the fault of Asian Americans. Just stop being assholes, please. Stop the violence against these Americans who had nothing to do with the virus in any way, shape, or form!
  6. Black Lives Matter…. For those who still don’t get it, ALL lives won’t matter until BLACK lives matter. Stop the stupidity!
  7. Progressive Insurance…Please discontinue the stupid ass commercial with the half-human half-motorcycle!! It’s not funny. It’s not even slightly amusing. And it makes absolutely no sense. You think it sells your insurance? I’d buy any insurance before I’d buy yours. Just stop.

So, there’s my list for this time around. At the rate things are going I’ll be making a list every damn day. Now, before any of you Republicans jump down my throat because I’m a Democrat and bashing Republicans, tell your fine leaders to think before they speak and we won’t have a problem.

What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

Oh, so many things to say but less than an hour to write!

Who’s Trying To Steal What?

It looks to me like Donald Trump is the one who’s trying to steal the election. They counted and recounted the votes in several states. Biden still had more votes. 60+ law suits put in front of various courts, were knocked down! NO evidence of widespread voter fraud was presented in any of those cases. Biden is still, clearly the winner of the 2020 election. Still claiming to have won the election, Trump riles up his base and makes them believe the lie! Now look what has happened.

He Told Them To Come

Peaceful protests are one thing; a riot is quite another. Donald Trump told his followers to come to the Capitol. He told them to fight. They knew what he wanted them to do. He knew they would do it. He used his followers to do his dirty work, the fucking coward! Desecrating the Nation’s Capitol Building is unacceptable! Donald Trump incited this riot that resulted in 5 deaths, property destruction, and theft. Let us not forget that these rioters came with weapons, zip ties, a constructed gallows and noose, Molotov cocktails and the like – for what purpose other than to terrify and inflict harm? It is clear what their intent was. They threatened the life of the Vice-President; shouting “Hang Mike Pence.” All because Trump expected Pence to overturn the vote, which is completely not up to Pence. His job was to oversee, not overturn. Trump just can’t accept that he lost the election and refuses to give up “power” because he’s a big, whiny-ass crybaby! But…but…but…BLM, Antifa, yadda yadda… Just staaahp! It doesn’t matter who did what, when, or why. The people that stormed the Capitol Building are simply, domestic terrorists. Destruction and violence is unacceptable. ANY destruction or violence committed during a protest of any kind is unacceptable! Insurrection and sedition is CRIMINAL. The riot on Wednesday was a direct attack on our Democracy! It was an attempted coup.

Speaking of BLM…

If those rioters had been black they’d have been shot/beat/pelleted and arrested before they could have even walked in the doors of the Capitol. Why were these white Trump supporters allowed to do what they did with little push-back? We all know why. 

Freedom of Speech

We, the people, have been granted the right to speak freely; to express our opinions, via the US Constitution. Twitter, among other social media platforms have banned Donald Trump for violating their policies. News Flash: Twitter is a privately owned company and they have every right to suspend or permanently ban people for violating their terms of use policy. I can’t help but compare this to the situation with my sister, who is constantly in Facebook “jail.” She speaks her mind, not always in the classiest way, and she violates Facebook’s terms of use. Why is Trump any different? He is NOT different. No one is infringing upon his rights! He has violated company policy by inciting violence, using hate speech, etc. Come on, folks! We are all HUMAN BEINGS! We are all the same! Just because someone else is being hateful, doesn’t mean it’s ok. We must remember, that with Freedom of Speech comes a certain responsibility. Just because you have the right to speak your mind doesn’t mean you should always speak your mind. Some things should remain unsaid. Some things are just inappropriate and unacceptable. Some things are just downright FALSE. See what happens when lies and conspiracy theories are spread and perpetuated by a US President?  

Yes, I’m A Democrat

What of it? Do you hate me now because I’m a Democrat? Are you going to call me names like libtard, snowflake, liberal, or angry Democrat? You damn right, I’m angry! I’m angry that Donald Trump has turned us all against each other. He has flipped our Democracy upside down! We have never seen the likes of such an incompetent, hateful, ignorant, racist, sexist, anti-American POTUS in the history of the United States! Anything, and I mean anything you might think Trump did that was good, is completely clouded by all the bad. If you still support this man, then you are the problem. There. I said it. Unfollow. Unfriend. I really don’t give a rat’s ass…all because I’m a Democrat. Well, let me tell you that I have several times in the past voted Republican. I’m smart enough to think for myself and vote for the candidate that I feel is the best qualified. Donald Trump was not and is STILL NOT qualified to lead this country. I didn’t vote for him nor would I ever

Conclusion

I knew what was going to happen before Trump was even elected in 2016. Of course, I didn’t know the exact events, nor did I know to what extent, but I knew things were going to end badly. He has ripped this country into shreds. My heart is weary. My brain is exhausted. I am sick and tired of the way Republicans think. Frankly, I am ashamed.

Click. There goes my last Republican friend. Oh well. 👋

 

The ABC’s of 2020

2020 was the crappiest year ever! I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that way. So many people have been affected in negative ways – those who died from Covid-19 paid the ultimate price. I can’t help but think that if things had been handled differently, we would be entering 2021 a little more hopeful. Don’t get me wrong, I am more hopeful than I was a couple of months ago, but we have so much more to endure.

I was thinking this morning about all the words there were to describe this shitshow of 2020 and came up with so many! I thought, why not choose just one for each letter of the alphabet? So, this is what I came up with, with an explanation for each along the way.

~~~

A – Apocalyptic – because it’s the end of the world as we know it. Our way of life will never be the same.

B – Bizarre – with one freakin’ absurdity damn near every day, nothing surprising anymore!

C – Clusterfuck – the entire year summed up in one word.

D – Disastrous – needs no explanation!

E – Exhausting – needs no explanation!

F – Fucked – we have all felt this way since at least March.

G – Gong show – an event that proves to be a disaster, as did this last year.

H – Hell – needs no explanation!

I – Ignoramous – as in being led by an…

J – Juvenile – again, as in being led by a…

K – Kaput – broken and useless; no longer working or effective, as in our government.

L – Loneliness – it’s been an extremely lonely year.

M – Mayhem – violent or damaging disorder; chaos…

N – Nightmare – 2020 has been a nightmare for all but most especially for those who have lost loved ones.

O – Ominous – giving the impression that something bad or unpleasant is going to happen; threatening; inauspicious…the feeling I have had all year long!

P – Pandemic – needs no explanation!

Q – Quagmire – a difficult, precarious, or entrapping position; a predicament, as in what we have all been experiencing this year.

R – Rancid – if this year had a smell or taste!

S – Shitshow – a situation or event marked by chaos or controversy, as in 2020.

T – Tragic – The fact that so many people have lost loved ones UNNECESSARILY is freakin’ tragic!

U – Unprecedented – never done or known before, as in 45 doing whatever the hell he wants without following any procedure or law! 

V – Vaccine – the only thing that can help save lives at this point because too many people won’t do the right thing and wear a mask, or use social distancing to protect each other!

W – Weakened – I’ve felt my spirit become weakened over the year.

X – Xenacious – yearning for change!!

Y – Yucky – I’ve felt this way all year long.

Z – Zilch – exactly what 45 has done for this country!

~~~

There ya go! That’s my ABC’s of 2020! Don’t like my words? Pick your own. Maybe you can think of better ones! 

I am done with 2020 and I’m ready to take out the trash! I am ready for REAL leadership, not an adolescent child pretending to be big and bad. Is Joe Biden perfect? No, and he doesn’t pretend to be, unlike Donald Trump. Joe will make mistakes, of course. But he will at least listen to EXPERTS and not Fox News hosts who don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground. Joe will listen to SCIENTISTS. He will listen to his advisors. He will not disregard policies and procedures. But I am getting off track…

Let’s join together and make 2021 a better year, shall we??

Happy New Year, y’all!
