My Mother’s Day Pet Peeves.

I don’t expect much for Mother’s Day as I just became a proud grandma of my fourth grandson. What more can I ask for? A granddaughter maybe, but…all in good time.

But I would love to eliminate a few overused, misused, annoyingly cute, crass, or unnecessary terms, practices, phrases, or words used by the general public, politicians, celebrities, and the media that make me cringe whenever I hear or read them. But I won’t hold my breath.

In no particular order:

  1. woke, wokeness
  2. new normal
  3. critical race theory
  4. systemic racism
  5. “systemic” anything
  6. existential threat
  7. racist
  8. gaslighting
  9. vaxxed
  10. “emojis” in emails
  11. insurrection
  12. white supremacy
  13. LGBTQ
  14. disinformation
  15. 1619 Project
  16. autonomous zone
  17. “It’s not who we are.”
  18. “Pay our fair share.”
  19. “We’re better than this.”
  20. “I’m a vegan.”
  21. gentrification
  22. white priviledge
  23. face masks required
  24. social distancing
  25. flatten the curve
  26. cancel culture
  27. ghosting
  28. unfriending
  29. doxing
  30. “rescue” dog
  31. court packing
  32. “champs” for champagne
  33. zoom learning
  34. foodie
  35. virtue signaling
  36. BLM
  37. selfies
  38. mani and a pedi
  39. reparations
  40. racial equity and justice

If I never heard the aforementioned terms or phrases again, I wouldn’t miss them. If we could stop hearing or seeing half of these, we’d all be better off. There’s probably many more, but these top my list. I could rant on each one of these on my list, but I’ll just do one.

Why don’t I like the foodie word is because it implies that the person calling himself or herself “a foodie” has a more refined taste or palate than we do. We all like food; we’ve always liked food. Let’s not promote ourselves to top chef because we like food. Unless you went to a culinary school, I don’t want to hear you’re a foodie.

“A foodie is a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and who eats food not only out of hunger but also as a hobby. The terms “gastronome” and “gourmet” define the same thing, i.e. a person who enjoys food for pleasure.” Urban Dictionary In other words, a foodie is a snob who thinks he’s better than the rest of us gluttons.

We don’t need to have you post what you’re eating or drinking on Facebook unless it’s a special dinner occasion like an anniversary or your job is a food critic. We’ve all been to a restaurant and know what entrees look like. And if you’re vegan, no need to announce it to your friends. I’m a moderatarian (eats in moderation). Just saying. I’m sure they feel the same. They don’t care. It’s not a religion. Just find something on the menu that meets with your silly agenda and leave the chef out of it. He has more important things to do than to cater to a fad. Someone had to say it.

Those are my Mother’s Day pet peeves. Will they go away? Not likely in this social media driven country right now. Twitter controls the president and all that he does. In fact, they interfered with the 2020 election by suppressing news of Hunter Biden’s laptop and are one of his biggest contributors, thus the protection by congress when they ban conservatives from their platform. Will Biden be investigated for colluding with Twitter to effect the election? I think not. Twitter is violating one of our rights: freedom of speech and still are today. Notice they never ban liberal speech from their platform. Hmmmm…I wonder why? No I don’t.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers out there, especially conservative ones and our beloved, deceased moms. Go out to brunch with your loved ones but please don’t say foodie or take a selfie or wear a mask. Maskless group photos taken by the waiter are fine. Enjoy yourself like it was 1990: before the internet, PC, smart phones, covid, masks, foodies, vegans, and definitely before Facebook and Twitter. My wish for Mother’s Day: Live like it’s 1990 (before the liberals ruined America).

Banks, Social Media, and Some GOP are Banning Trump.

Cancel culture is now being used by some businesses and the GOP. The way some companies and GOP are treating President Trump is so ungrateful it will surely backfire on them. The banks that are refusing to do business with Trump will get thousands of accounts closed, their stock plummet, and reputation ruined. Social media is already experiencing this backlash and there will be more. Liz Cheney might as well join the Democrat Party. She’s done. She made a grave error in judgment by jumping ships and calling it voting her conscience. If that’s her conscience then she needs to grow a new one.

If it weren’t for President Trump some of these social media companies wouldn’t have even gotten off the ground like Twitter. Trump had the most followers on their platform and now, out of spite, they cancel his account along with all other conservative accounts. It’s clear to everyone that the socialist Democrats want only one party, one voice, one opinion. And that they want to erase any mention of voter fraud or stolen election from the minds of America. But that ain’t gonna fly with conservatives. We have long memories.

Yesterday the MSM news networks didn’t show a Presidential Oval Office Message. Probably the first time in history an Oval Office Message got blacked out. It was a beautiful message of peace and what Trump wants America to know. He has always been against violence and would never, ever incite it. Google has been our “go to” search engine but I feel it is banning some searches. I looked for a Biden speech but it was nowhere to be found. They are all suppressing the news.

McConnell better grow some you know what and dismiss or postpone the Impeachment Trial as irrelevant and punitive. Why impeach a president after he has already finished out his term? Unheard of. They just want to leave an everlasting stain on the president whereby he will lose some supporters. Trump’s previous lawyers for the impeachment have shown no interest in this second one. What does this mean? I don’t know. Maybe they know something we don’t. Maybe something bigger is going on behind the scenes whereby Trump will not need defending in the Senate. An impeachment trial is nothing more than a show trial for Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. She has gone bonkers and so has the House.

The Capitol is gearing up for a major disruption during the Biden Inauguration. They have brought in thousands of National Guard to sleep in the hallways. I thought the left said the National Guard incites violence. I guess not when Biden is president. Regardless, it looks ridiculous and is overkill. Now they have security whereby during the most important hearing of the year, they had a handful of security guards. Something evil is going on in our country and I fear for the future. We are not getting the truth from anyone, especially now that Trump is banned from all forms of communication except for the press core on the lawn outside the White House.

At the rate this cancel culture and lack of freedom of speech is going, I can foresee NPR being the only talk radio left on the airwaves and Hannity packing his boxes at FOX. Doesn’t the left realize that this is a form of DISCRIMINTATION. They always cared about any group being discriminated against. Well…now it’s conservatives being discriminated against. Maybe we can file discrimination lawsuits. I would, if I got fired from a job for going to a Trump rally. Are there any conservative lawyers brave enough to take these cases? Anyone? Anyone?

Lastly, if this is what Biden calls uniting America and representing all Americans he has broken his promise before even taking office. If he really had any integrity and decency like he ran on, he would have objected to the impeachment proceedings; but he has none. He is nothing more now than a sock puppet run by the likes of Pelosi. This is who the left stole the election for? Careful who you cheat for.

Conservative Think is Being Muzzled.

Dog Muzzles: What You Should Know about When, Why, and How to Use One –  American Kennel Club

Not only are we asked to wear masks to cover our mouths now we are being told to shut our mouths. Big companies are punishing those that even mention that the election was stolen. They are firing employees that believe this or that attended the Freedom March on January 6th. We are not allowed to voice what we saw right before our own eyes. Big Tech like Twitter has cancelled tens of thousands of conservative members from their platform. This is scary. This is communism.

So why, you ask yourself, is this going on? I certainly am asking myself. I’ve never worked at a company that told me how to think. They told me what the dress code was and that’s about it. How can they silence our thought process? By threatening our livelihood. The left and some on the right want us to FORGET how the election was stolen so Biden can have a peaceful term with no questioning his legitimacy. Isn’t that nice. Much like how they treated Trump. NOT!

I’ve never experienced anything like this before. I always doubted the fact that Oswald shot JFK simply because he was swiftly taken out by a man dying from cancer live on television. I saw this on my round-screened RCA tv as a teenager. It convinced me then that we do have conspiracies in our country and coverups evidenced later by the Watergate scandal and Benghazi. But nothing like what I’m seeing today. To even mention that the election was stolen gets you fired or asked to resign from your senator job? I think I’ll mention this at my next California HOA Zoom Meeting and see what the liberals do to me. Maybe they’ll fire me from my volunteer job. Bring it.

This is a full court press to erase our minds of something we saw and witnessed. Both parties are partaking in this suppression of speech and thought. They way the congress has jumped on the bandwagon to impeach our president for a second time is so obviously disgusting that I think they have overplayed their hand. They are calling January 6th a MAGA Civil War. They sound and look like idiots. Why are we paying these clowns to represent us? Anyone that votes for impeachment should be voted out of office. This is just their last ditch attempt to erase and tarnish Trump’s presidency. They won’t even hear that Antifa overtook the Capitol too and that some of the police were in cahoots.

Geez, these congressmen and women are so afraid of Trump it is pathetic. Maybe they have aspirations to run for president in 2024 and are taking out their competition ahead of time. This is a stain on our country as we look vindictive and vengeful in the eyes of the world. I wonder what other countries are thinking about us. I can’t be good. But we are making up with China now that they think Biden won. Amazing.

If I have to see shifty Schiff and Beijing Swalwell up on their soapbox arrogantly debating whether to impeach Trump again, I think I will throw up. These two men are a stain on congress. Our government has taken this nonsense too far.

We won’t be silenced. I mean, we may lose a few friends or family members but that is the cost of freedom. Besides, one of my New Years’ Resolutions was to make new conservative friends in my liberal towns. Mission impossible? We’ll see.

“First They Came” Poem. Rewritten.

FIRST THEY CAME

By Martin Niemöller and rewritten for today.

First they came for business owners
And YOU did not speak out
Because YOU were not a business owner.

Then they came for churches

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU were not a church member.

Then they came for your cities
And YOU did not speak out
Because YOU did not live in the city.

Then they came for the police
And YOU did not speak out
Because YOU were not a policeman.

Then they came for our schools 

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU were not a student.

Then they came for our freedom of speech

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU were not a journalist.

Then they came for our elections

And YOU did not speak out 

Because YOU believed they were fair.

Then they came for our Congress

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU weren’t a member.

Then they came for our President

And YOU did not speak out

Because YOU were not the President.

Next they came for YOU
And there was no one left
To speak out for YOU.  

This is where we are headed folks if we don’t speak out. Don’t let them come for YOU.  This has been their plan all along to take out the president.  Don’t let them.  Speak out whenever you can, peacefully.

They is the Democrat Party and their drones like BLM and Antifa and Twitter.

Think about it. 

“Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Lutheran pastor in Germany. He emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. He is perhaps best remembered for his postwar words, “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out…”
