Hmmmm...

Found out this morning that 2 of our St. Simon of Cyrene Trucking Ministry trucks have had things like catalytic converters stolen out of them and the third has been vandalized.  We use these trucks to deliver fresh produce and household goods like toilet paper to food pantries throughout WV as well as parts of VA, MD, and PA.  

We also are the only charity in the county that picks up and delivers large furniture and appliances to needy folks.

If it was just theft, I would think it was just that.  But the vandalization of the third makes me wonder if the pro-aborts (and since the one who dies has no choice, there's no such thing as pro-choice in abortion and I will not use the term), knowing that they would be quickly bundled out the doors and into the arms of local police if they interrupted Mass, have chosen to attack us this way instead.

I also wonder if any one of the screamers currently stomping around at any time in their lives has ever done as much as we do to make sure that women really DO have a choice.  I wonder if any of them has ever been as willing to spend their time painting walls for someplace like St. Joseph's Mary's Refuge as they are to scream about the right to kill an innocent and defenseless human being.

Well, We Survived...

 ...the Winter of Death, but I guess now we will have to survive the Summer of Mostly Peaceful Protest.

Don't Get TOO Excited

Abortion will not end.  It will go back to the states, which is actually how the Constitution is supposed to work.  

Which means getting involved locally and state level.

Don't Know if T-Bolt Liked Flowers...

 ...but I took this pic right after I read Tam's post.  So this one's for you, New Jovian Thunderbolt.



Rest in peace.  Cancer sucks, and we can't shoot our way out of it.

I Am Not Amused

 

April 18, 2022.  Just so you know.  After I spent Friday and Saturday digging up and replanting part of the front flower beds.

I'm Sorry But...

 ..I said that I would prefer to spend the 80% of my property taxes that goes to county public education on things like private schools for my granddaughter or someone else's kid's private school education.  You know, choosing the best for our kids.  Since I don't have any family in this county's schools but I pay for them.

And I was informed that "the collective" is what's important.

I can't go back out there right now because I'm going to be traveling and won't be able to get to confession tomorrow afternoon.  And if I give my full and unexpurgated opinion on "the collective" I'll really, really need to go to confession.

I Am Woman, Hear Me ... Whimper...

 With no apologies to Helen Reddy.  Because I need to get this straight.  

Women are strong and independent and have their identities separate from men...

... but a black husband should be fired for what his white wife said... (isn't that racist too?)...

...and a wife needs her husband to smack someone for her because she feels a joke was insulting...(shouldn't she have smacked Rock herself?)...

...and a guy who is a failure as a guy can pretend to be a girl, steal trophies from them, and parade around naked in a girl's locker room clearly displaying that he finds females arousing (complaints have been made and ignored) and it's ok with Mom...(let alone with Dad?)...


...and this is considered a normal woman?...


And schoolhouse rapes are OK as long as the guy is wearing a blouse and skirt at the time 'cause he's transgender, you know...

The Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) did not tell the school community when the May 2021 rape happened, and instead, sent out an email saying that if students noticed police on campus, they should rest assured that it was not because of anything that threatened student safety. Police logs show that police were dispatched to the school to deal with an angry parent: Smith, who was unsatisfied by how the school was handling the rape.

Soon after, the school board sought to pass a policy that would permit transgender students to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with. To address concern by parents that this could cause a safety issue, Superintendent Scott Zeigler said definitively that there had been no bathroom sexual assaults in the Loudoun schools. 

Well, if liberal women are curious, no, I do not respect them.  And they give me reason after reason not to, day after day after day.

I Sorta Wonder...

 ... if major media - after, what, 2 years? - is finally hopping on the Hunter-Biden-laptop-is-real train because they see that Biden and his policies are going to absolutely destroy the Dem brand and they are preparing to get on the 25th-Amendment train?  And they have to get on THAT train because there is info about Joey B. on that laptop that would inevitably lead to an impeachment train?


Speaking of which, the ever-plummeting-in-ratings CNN decided to start a pay-for streaming channel.  I guess maybe the execs never considered that if your ratings are in the toilet when you are free it's unlikely people will pay for you either.  Heard something today about big layoffs coming maybe as early as May.

And I read HB 1557 today - the Florida law that everybody is screaming about.  I assume that all those doing the screaming have also read it, so I don't get where the "Don't say gay" moniker comes from:  "gay" does not appear in the bill. Nor do "homosexual" or "transgender". What it DOES say is that sex-ed cannot be taught before 4th grade and it must be age-appropriate when it is taught.  But the main thing the bill lays down in law is that the school is not the parent and may not interfere with the parent without legal and financial consequences.  Of course, now the challenge will be to enforce the requirements of the law.  In little ol', theoretically conservative West Virginia, no sooner does the legislature pass a law then school boards figure out a way of dodging it.  But then WV keeps electing Joe Manchin and RINO Shelley Moore Capito, too, so the title "conservative" is a bit dubious. 

Heard some teacher whining that he couldn't tell his students about things like what he and his boyfriend did over the weekend.  I don't remember ever knowing ANYTHING about any of my teacher's private lives in any grade.  They were there to teach.  And that's IT.   And my education didn't suffer for it.

The Current Great Debate

 "Do I use my $0.10 in grocery point discount to top off the tank now while I'm in town or risk the price shooting up $0.30 while saving points for a $0.20 discount?"


On the other hand, thanks to senators like Patricia Rucker, there was a little bit of good news for WV today: 

"On Saturday night, the Legislature adjourned sine die from its 2022 session. During this session, they passed House Bill 4048, the WV Keep, Bear and Drive with Arms Act, and sent it to Governor Jim Justice for his signature. On March 9th, Governor Jim Justice signed HB 4048 into law. It will go into effect on May 24th, 90 days from passage

The WV Keep, Bear and Drive with Arms Act affirms that it is lawful to possess loaded and/or uncased long guns in vehicles. This ensures that law-abiding citizens may carry the firearms of their choice, in the manner of their choosing, with them in vehicles. Given that West Virginia already has constitutional carry, law-abiding gun owners should be able to exercise their Second Amendment rights with long guns while traveling throughout the state."

It Just Seems...

 ...like shooting bangity things at a nuke plant would generally be considered unwise.



Even if it IS in the country you are invading.

Just sayin'.

Gomer Pyled

 


Well, no, not really.  Anybody with half a brain has seen this coming because we've been seeing the "breakthrough" cases:  



Who didn't see this coming?  As the article states, in a reasonable world this would end all the b.s.  Right now.  But we live in times that are flat out evil.  That's not hyperbole.  These are EVIL times that demonstrate that no one has learned from history.  World War II cost between 70 and 85 million lives a generation ago but people are being required to show papers again.  And "othering", already well entrenched in the evil of abortion and the involuntary euthanasia being practiced in Europe, is being expanded as those who are "less" are denied treatment:  the NHS denied a woman with Down Syndrome treatment, resulting in her death.  Because she was "other."  And that made her less worthy.

These are evil times, run by evil people, and supported by the lazy and complacent.

Face Palm

Caused by conservatives.  If I understand correctly, there is much rejoicing among some because "Encanto", a Disney animated release, crashed and burned in China.

Deep breath now.  Thinking about the fact that South American culture is way different from China's.  Might think about that.  Might influence their preferences.

I'm having to defend my appreciation of it.  Very pretty with good music.  My favorite from this season is still "Sing 2" and I need to catch up on the Toy Story series because, well, watch the previews.  I love the previews.  

But, really.  When a company does a good thing let them know.  They are in it for the money.  At some point they will do more good things because the bad things cause them to go out of business.  It may take decades.  But eventually the worm will turn.

So Let Me Get This Straight

During a time of extreme stress and pressures brought on by soaring gas and food prices, the powers that be thought it wise to spend a day screaming about something that was pretty small compared to what was going on in the rest of the country.  We're tired of covid, we're tired of mandate stupidity, we're tired of paying taxes for our kids to not be in school. We're tired of being called Nazis and racists and white extremists  and any bad thing some liberal clown comes up with.  That was BEFORE today.   And that screeching bunch thought it would be a good idea to publically pummel us all day long? They thought it would raise their chances of getting re-elected?

I don't think they read the crowd right.

Two Years In...

 ...and I don't trust anybody anymore.  But at I am at least comfortable with any conspiracies the fur balls come up with.



They, at least, are only impinging on my freedom to have more than a tiny slice of my queen sized bed.
