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

Even if it IS in the country you are invading.

Just sayin'.
