What IRKS me….

I am REALLY TIRED of calling DirecTV or my Part D Medical Insurance company, or TracFone, or many other important calls, and getting someone whose accent I have trouble with.  I am a person who gets accents…My mother has one, my husband certainly had one, my stepkids have one, my grandparents had one, I’ve lived in France and Germany, etc.  But, I am tired of having quite important info I’ve called for so difficult to grasp due to a very thick accent.

I’d write more but every time I type a ‘t’, I get a ‘g’ , too, due to the  bandage packing on my cut finger and it’s driving me crazy 🙂

YOU TELL ME….does this accent tghing irk you?  (I left tghe ‘g’s’ on purpose!)…..

I NEED INFO….SPEAK CLEAR ENGLISH, PLEASE!!

What Does a Country DO with People Almost (?) as SILLY AS THIS?

The New Green Deal….even USA TODAY seems in favor of what they know about it.

What scares me is that the Right is laughing about how she wants “no more air travel, salaries for those who don’t want to work, etc.”   A man who helped her write this ‘Deal’ says those aren’t in it.  If they aren’t, please make the Right STOP because people will not pay attention to what it DOES SAY if the media has them laughing and mocking the Right so hard for misrepresenting it that they don’t notice the true mess it is.      Get it!~?   THOUGHTS?

Sunday Faith Blog…………

THIS INFORMATION REALLY BOTHERED ME SO I THOUGHT I’D SHARE IT AND ASK YOUR OPINIONS:

If someone is against gay marriage, are they to be taunted and derided in the news?  If someone is for gay marriage, is that person a better person and applauded for speaking against the other?  These are the impressions left by our media.   Also, we must realize that young wannabes only have to say one thing that supports whatever the media’s bias might be and they become famous!   You can call a decent person out for going to a church you don’t agree with and we’re suddenly saying your name?  Meanwhile, really decent people suffer from unfairly damaged reputations.

If someone follows Biblical teachings, is THAT now “The Big SIN!” in our culture?

Now actors and the media are going after Chris Pratt and his fiancee, Katherine Schwarzenegger, for going to Hillsong Church, whose founder follows the Bible and God’s word on homosexuality…From one article on this:

The actor’s church, Hillsong, has made headlines for not “affirming” the LGBTQ lifestyle. In a statement released in August 2015, Hillsong global pastor Brian Houston said he “holds to traditional Christian thought on gay lifestyles and gay marriage” and that “God’s word is clear that marriage is between a man and a woman.”

“Hillsong Church welcomes ALL people but does not affirm all lifestyles,” the statement reads. “Put clearly, we do not affirm a gay lifestyle and because of this we do not knowingly have actively gay people in positions of leadership, either paid or unpaid. I recognise this one statement alone is upsetting to people on both sides of this discussion, which points to the complexity of the issue for churches all over the world.”

IS THIS THE FUTURE OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN AMERICA?  WHEN SCRIPTURE IS UPHELD, SILLY AMERICAN CELEBRITIES MOST PEOPLE DON’T EVEN RECOGNIZE CAN INSULT THEM TERRIBLY, THEREBY DRIVING THEM UNDERGROUND OR SHAMING THEM OUT OF EXISTENCE?  HOW MANY PEOPLE MIGHT HILLSONG CHURCH HAVE LOST OVER THIS KIND OF PUBLICITY?

What i’d like to say to celebrities insulting people like Chris Pratt is the following:

We really don’t care that you don’t follow the words in the Scripture, though, for your sake, we wish you did.  That’s your right.   Following those words in Scripture does not make you a hater anymore than it does us.  Our right is to follow those words.   We wish you the best, you should be wishing others the best.  We do not hate anybody, you should show the same concern.

“And now I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (John 13:34)

“as I have loved you”...yes,  God means you who are farther than far from perfect, whether you attend church or not.  You who have had abortions, you who are homosexual, you who have killed, you who have stood up for Scripture, you who have derided Scripture…YOU.  And all of you are welcome in His church.

“I will give them a heart to know that I am the Lord, and they shall be my people and I will be their God, for they shall return to me with their whole heart.”   Jeremiah 24:7

A secular celebrity deserves to stay secular and a religious celeb deserves to stay religious, so be it.   If people are coming to Hillsong or any other church which teaches TRUTH, let their hearts be changed in His love.  This is not evil.  If they choose not to come to a church, all Christians wish them blessed, not criticized, which I do believe borderlines evil, unkindness.

 THOUGHTS?

BLACKFACE

I have a question that nobody on the planet has asked as far as I can tell:

AS LONG AS PEOPLE AREN’T ACTING IN THE HORRID GENERALIZATIONS OF BLACK AMERICANS (ROBBING, RAPING, BEING LAZY…YOU KNOW WHAT THEY ARE) WHAT THE HECK’S WRONG WITH BLACKFACE FOR A ROAST OF A BLACK WOMAN OR A HALLOWEEN COSTUME OF MICHAEL JACKSON?

Am I SO non racist that I just don’t get why dressing as a Black American is HORRID because I see them as “just another American” or am I too naive to understand?  I told a Black kid at the high school about the white teacher who darkened her skin and donned an African costume to do a soliloquy of a native African woman in her village, to draw the students in….and she was fired, did he think she was so wrong?  Yes, he did.  I was surprised.   Does he think it’s wrong because the media and the Left tells him he has to or does it hurt somehow to have ‘his people’ mimicked?  What would I care if somebody donned Armenian clothing from an Armenian village in Turkey?  Of course, they’d not blacken their skin (and here is the rub) but that’s only because Armenians are not Black.  If they were, what would I care?   Would I care if a Black teacher made her skin lighter to appear as an Armenian village woman?  NO!!!

I AM NOT BLACK….I DO NOT PRETEND TO  UNDERSTAND, BUT I JUST DON’T GET IT!

DO YOU?  I hope I’m not being insensitive but, from the reactions we get across our country to the Virginia situation, maybe I am?

On Facebook, in response to the 2 blackface incidents and one sexual attack by the bigwigs in Virginia government, there was a picture of a janitor sweeping the floor and the caption said something like “If the succession of Virginians keeps getting attacked for inappropriate behavior, this janitor might be the in line for governor!”  🙂

THOUGHTS??  You can tell me if you find me inappropriate or insensitive; I just don’t get the big woop.  (and yes, having a K-K-K guy there in the picture with the governor was WRONG WRONG WRONG…THAT, I TOTALLY get…but I’m not talking about that here~)

IS TRUMP FEAR MONGERING ABOUT THE BORDER?

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D), rejecting President Donald Trump’s claims of an immigration crisis, said she would withdraw most National Guard troops deployed at her state’s southern border.

New Mexico will not take part in the president’s charade of border fear-mongering,” Lujan Grisham declared Tuesday shortly before Trump’s State of the Union address, adding that she rejects the “federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis” at the border.  (Z; DOES SHE SEE THE ‘CARAVANS’ COMING IN?)

She elaborated during a news conference on Wednesday. “I’m not going to participate, nor do I think it’s appropriate in any shape or fashion to use the National Guard to attempt to militarize the border where we’re dealing with asylum seekers who their constitutional rights continue to be breached,” Lujan Grisham said, according to CNN (Z:  ILLEGALS HAVE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS BEFORE THEY COME INTO OUR COUNTRY?)

A majority of the 118 National Guard personnel stationed at New Mexico’s southern border will be withdrawn in the coming weeks, KOAT-TV reported. Only a small number of troops will remain in southwestern New Mexico to help with humanitarian needs, Lujan Grisham said.  (Z;  DO OUR AMERICAN CHILDREN HAVE HUMANITARIAN NEEDS LIKE NOT CATCHING DISEASES THE MIGRANTS ARE DEFINITELY BRINGING IN?)

“I recognize and appreciate the legitimate concerns of residents and officials in southwestern New Mexico, particularly Hidalgo County, who have asked for our assistance, as migrants and asylum-seekers continue to appear at their doorstep,” the governor said in a statement. She added that the state police would send six officers to Hidalgo County to support local law enforcement.  (Z;  YOU DO?)

Lujan Grisham’s Republican predecessor, Susana Martinezordered National Guard troops to the border in April following a proclamation signed by Trump deploying the National Guard to the southern border.

More than 2,000 National Guard troops are currently stationed at the border. About 2,300 active-duty troops have also been deployed there.

Trump said during his Tuesday State of the Union address that he’s ordered the deployment of an additional 3,750 active-duty troops to the border to prepare for a “tremendous onslaught” of undocumented immigrants.

Trump’s deployment of military forces to the border could cost taxpayers an estimated $1 billion by the end of the fiscal year, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

As Lujan Grisham’s decision to withdraw National Guard troops made headlines, the governor shared a campaign video showing her literally careening through walls and criticizing Trump’s promise to build a massive wall at the border.

“Here’s what I think of Trump’s wall,” Lujan Grisham shouts in the viral clip as she breaks into a run and smashes through a wall bearing a photograph of the president.  (Z;  THANKS FOR YOUR RESPECT TOWARDS A SITTING PRESIDENT, LUJAN….AND, BY THE WAY, IF TRUMP DOES BUILD HIS WALL,  I’LL ASK YOU TO RUN VERY QUICKLY AND DIRECTLY INTO IT AGAIN.   HARD.)

READERS;  WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS?  I FOUND HER STUPID AND FAR MORE CARING TOWARD ILLEGALS THAN AMERICANS.

YOU?

Election Day

The Left has introduced a bill to make Election Day a Federal holiday.

I think it’s a grand idea but there’s much fighting between the Dems and Reps.   I think what’s causing the fighting is about an additional part of the bill which involves ETHICS….more about this:

“It would also put stronger ethical constraints on the executive branch, in part by making it more difficult for people to move through the “revolving door” between public and private sector work, and by strengthening the Office of Government Ethics. The bill also contains a section on campaign finance disclosure.

Cummings, the committee’s new chair (“oh, God!”), called the bill “one of the boldest reform packages to be considered in the history of this body,” adding that it would “clean up in government, fight secret money in politics and make it easier for American citizens across this great country to vote.” …which is probably a buzz word for ILLEGAL VOTING, NO ID NECESSARY, and “COME ONE, COME ALL” …..stupid, stupid, stupid.

But what do you think of Election Day being a day off?  If they do that, I believe we should ONLY vote on THAT DAY.

THOUGHTS?!!

STATE OF THE UNION….

My favorite line among many good ones:

“AMERICAN SOLDIERS WERE PROOF GOD EXISTS!”   Said a Jew whose family was about to be exterminated until they realized who was coming into the camp!!  Oh, yes…yes.

As the speech progressed, I wrote down….

The Left keeps mentioning Trump’s forgetting INFRASTRUCTURE when Obama promised good infrastructure work and did ZIP.

“Govern as one nation”….YES, YES, DJT…EXCELLENT HOPE, excellent line.  (Dems do not clap, let alone stand)  The Dems looked AWFUL from time to time, not cheering at pretty good pro-American stuff…but they started to a bit more as the speech progressed…

Why did Pelosi READ during the speech?  How rude can ONE GET??

“CHOOSE GREATNESS!”  YES YES YES….even better than MAGA! But the Left didn’t clap or stand…”Greatness” for America?  fogetabutit.

“LOW UNEMPLOYMENT!“” Pelosi sits…looks bitter.  She hates that!!??

WHITE CLOTHING ON WOMEN….was it only Democrat women?  Why do they feel feminist to not believe in equality?  Republican women wear normal clothing, they are TRULY EQUAL.

Alexandria Ocasia-etc looks like a deer in headlights……..sickening.  Immature.  Stupid. In white.

AMERICANS GOING OFF FOOD STAMPS…  that’s not good enough news to clap for???  REALLY?

NANCY NEEDS BETTER DENTURES, what IS it she does with her mouth the whole time!?

I cried seeing the father of the USS COLE dead SEAL….God bless him!

I LOVE MIKE POMPEO.

“Happy Birthday” sung to Juda Samet was wonderful AND IT SHOWED A SIDE OF TRUMP I HAVE MENTIONED BEFORE….  he gets VERY tender and sweet at really lovely things like that and that showed at that moment.

MELANIA LOOKED LOVELY AND HAPPY TONIGHT…HURRAH!!

“IT’S THE AMERICANS!” Cried the holocaust survivor…Z cries again! 🙂

Lovely to see a soldier who helped free DACHAU!

GREAT LINE “ARE WE DEFINED BY DIFFERENCES OR DARE TO TRANSCEND THEM?”   GREAT, GREAT LINE, MR. TRUMP!

Question:  How do you “ELIMINATE” HIV?  GOod luck with that…outlawing SEX?!!

Question:  Was Venezuela really the ‘wealthiest country in South America?”

LOVED HOW HE ATTACKED SOCIALISM AND LAUGHABLE THAT  SOME ON THE LEFT STOOD UP AGAINST SOCIALISM….EVEN AS THEY CONTINUE TO MOVE CLOSER AND CLOSER….

AND BERNIE SANDERS SITS AND STARES…AND SITS AND STARES.  SHAME ON HIM.

‘AMERICA WILL NEVER BE A SOCIALIST COUNTRY,’ SAYS DJT….Only a few Dems stand.  WHAT??

Loved “WE WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR ADVANCING OUR AMERICAN INTERESTS!” hurrah!!!

UHOH:  “If I had not been elected, in my opinion, we would be in a major war with North Korea….”   I’m not sure about THAT, nobody can be, so the Left’s going to slam him on that.  BUT, he actually pronounced Kim’s name correctly!  it is “UN” (like unCola) it is NOT OON as 99% of journalists and pundits mistakenly call it (except my hero Bill Hemmer!)

Did I say above I love Pompeo?  Let me say it again anyway!

Marlo Thomas, Leftwinger Extraordinaire, must have dropped HER dentures when DJT mentioned St Jude’s….Not sure how CHILDHOOD CANCER got into the speech, but who can argue fighting THAT?  Lovely moment with the sweet little girl and Melania.

I’m not 100% for parental leave, but OK.   Ivanka got her way on that.

ABORTION!!!!  Joe Manchin is HIS OWN MAN…he STOOD AGAINST ABORTION…He stood for a LOT of things the Dems remained sitting for.

“We must cherish innocent life!” and the Left won’t clap.   again…WHAT???

Kamala Harris NEVER EVER can just keep a poker face, she must scowl, look disdainful.  God forgive me, I DESPISE her.  

Z LOVED THIS SPEECH………..AMAZED ME.  SO PROUD OF THIS PRESIDENT TONIGHT!

And did I say I love and trust Mike Pompeo?

TELL US WHAT YOU THOUGHT!

I thought Stacy Tracy’s rebuttal was better than most….but she’s so stupid or deceitful she mentioned Trump “Keeping children in cages” when that was OBAMA who began that.  She got a LOT wrong, but she was articulate and effective.    damn.

NEW SLOGAN!

SO!! Michael Moore thinks the Democrats just have to give it up and give it all to Alexandria!   She’s right, he says!  The Democrats need to move farther and farther left so’s to be more acceptable and WIN in 2020, says Mikey Moore!

SO, my slogan, since we all know that’s rubbish and even some Democrats don’t fall for quite as LEFT as he and she’d like to go (and the rest of the candidates, by the way):

THE LEFTER IS BETTER!!

Yes, the LEFTER they go (“Free school! free medical! higher taxes! protect 11 yr old gay dancers,  let boys go into the girls’ bathroom, kill babies after they’re born, put America last on the foreign scene, etc etc,”)  the BETTER IT GOES FOR US!

Like it?  Should I send it to DJT?  HA!!!

If you use it, you must quote me…(no ego here!! )

WHAT DO YOU THINK?    Is Moore right? (for once), is my slogan a winner!?

Super Bowl Ad….Giving the finger to Trump

I watched the Super Bowl, but the ads, to me, were dull so I watched other shows during the commercial time…(thank goodness for remotes!).   The game, to me, was dull, too.  And the L.A. Rams lost.   But, I’m a Brady fan, so I’m not too upset we lost.

What I am a bit upset about is the Washington Post commercial near the end of the guy which I did happen to catch…..it caught my eye because it showed news people, Anderson Cooper, Brett Baier, and others, and the point was how important journalism is…I believe their slogan in the ad was “Knowing Keeps Us Free.”  Since when did newspapers tout journalism in TV commercials for the Super Bowl?

Clearly, it was a big MIDDLE FINGER to Trump.  I have NO doubt that was the goal of the Washington Post. 

And it ticked me off, BIG TIME.   “KNOWING” does keep us free, LYING does not, MISCHARACTERIZING does not, BIAS does NOT KEEP US FREE.  Is the hate and constant slamming, no matter how subtle, ever going to stop?

Did you see that ad?  OH! I just Googled and found THIS ARTICLE about it…..my favorite Twitter comment printed in the article amid all the others saying it was the best ad of the night is this one:

The Reagan Battalion   @ReaganBattalion

With the money the @washingtonpost spent on that ad, they could have employed 50 journalists for a year paying each a salary of $100,000.

Ladies and gentlemen, the ad cost the Washington Post TEN MILLION DOLLARS.  Good.

Sunday Faith Blog

My Sunday Faith Blog today concerns BABIES and abortion. 

THIS article caught my attention because, while Justice Alito says the delay in passing a Louisiana bill doesn’t reflect the merits of the case and it’s only a 5 day delay for them to better learn about the bill, the quote below seems hypocritical and fascinating to me……..here it is:

“The law, enacted in 2014, requires doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.”

I take that to mean that a doctor had better be on staff near wherever he performed an abortion just in case a mother needs hospitalization and for him to be involved in her hospital care since he’s familiar with her case.  In other words, in case the mother’s health is jeopardized by the birth.  I could be wrong, but that’s how I’d read it.

So, the Pro Choicers are less concerned about the mother’s health than they say they are, huh?   Most of us think that’s rubbish as an excuse for abortion because it’s SO rare that mother’s get into trouble during a birth….They SAY it’s the “Mother’s health” many times for which to perform an abortion, apparently it isn’t?  At least not in Louisiana?

I personally believe an abortion is between a woman and her God…….not so much her doctor.   I also believe the kinds of abortion laws we’re passing these days can’t make God too pleased and we know how He does lose patience with a country whose people constantly ignore Him. (see Israel in the Old Testament and, in fact, how persecuted the country of Israel is today…more and more so, actually!)

So today I particularly ask for PRAYERS FOR THE BABIES, PRAYERS FOR PATIENCE FROM GOD AS WE TRY HARD TO TURN THIS AWFUL TIDE, combating the hypocrisy I lay out above, hoping more people wake up to the awfulness of killing a child who’s already been born but whose mother and doctor decide it just shouldn’t live!

MANY say that the Bible doesn’t mention abortion.  They’re right.  But GOD IS LIFE.  God believes in LIFE, not killing life.   Enough said.

Those of you who really know the Bible, check THIS out!   Absolutely unbelievable….so untrue.  There are FAR FAR more articles on Google saying that babies aren’t people till they breathe on their own, with Biblical scripture tweaked to fit that notion, etc…it’s amazing.

HERE is a site which more reflects my opinions based on Scripture.

PRAY FOR THE BABIES!

Thanks, Z
