The Common Man Gets a Rebuttal Part I: Dems are Dumb Responds

The Common Man got a rebuttal for his article “Whatever Happened to My Party?” from a Left leaning detractor. As A Lady of Reason welcomes civil debate, I posted her comment in the comments in the article itself, but Dems are Dumb offered some counterarguments to her rebuttal. Here is Dems are Dumb’s rebuttal to her points… The original headings from the detractor have been preserved. Dems are Dumb does not address two points, so I chose to omit them. His rebuttals are in RED:

On accepting welfare as a substitute for education, training, and employment:
Have you been on welfare? I was for a brief period in the late 1990’s. Applying for, receiving, and keeping welfare is a full-time job. You have to show up with a list of every job you applied to, and the contact person so they can call to make sure you’re being honest. And they do. Our government does not offer low-cost job training, employment opportunities, or low-cost education via the welfare office. I thought welfare was only slightly harder than completing a Master’s thesis. (Interesting that the writer found a welfare application more difficult than a Master’s thesis. Considering that many people on welfare in the U.S. are functionally illiterate, one must question how challenging this commenter’s Master’s program was.) The cycle is, the person works 1-2 jobs at minimum wage and can’t afford to live. If the person has kids, it’s worse. They have to take sick days for their child, they have to have access to medical care, they have to pay for childcare before and or after school. They put their low paying job at risk because they do not have a lot of rights within the parameters of their job. They want to get a decent paying job, but education seems out of their reach. Maybe they can get financial aid, a pell grant, etc. Maybe even a scholarship, but what about food, housing, books, supplies, etc. They have to continue to work a lot of hours at the minimum wage job, letting their school work take a back seat, thus perhaps losing a scholarship due to harsh life situation. Student loans today are out of hand largely due to the sharp increase in college tuition. College is no longer a place where anyone can go. It is becoming more and more elite. (Doesn’t this contradict the earlier comment that a welfare application is more challenging than a Master’s thesis? Wouldn’t that seem to imply that the average welfare recipient is educated to the point of being capable of post graduate level work? If that’s the case, it would appear that economics have not been a bar to education. Another issue with the above paragraph is the commenter’s assumptions about minimum wage jobs. Most minimum wage job holders are teenagers and others with minimal job skills. One takes a minimum wage job to acquire basic job skills. As people gain experience and skills they generally progress to higher paying jobs. The economist Thomas Sowell and others have cited IRS figures that show those at the lowest level of income usually progress to a higher level within a decade and often reach the highest quintile (20% of income earners) during their earning career. Those who choose to start a family and raise children while they are still at the minimum wage level create problems for themselves because they did not build a stable economic situation before taking on that added responsibility. Sowell also points out that the poverty level for married couples with children is in the single digits. Given all that, I would suggest that someone who has earned a Master’s degree in some marketable field and has not been able to find work paying more than minimum wage and nevertheless chose to raise kids is a bit of an anomaly.)
I live in Norway now (moved here 4 years ago). We are a welfare state. Our unemployment benefits feature free job re-training into a new field of work if desired, or if necessary. Weekly job fairs that are easy to attend. All jobs here pay at least $20/hour, meaning that virtually no one can find themselves in a situation of not being able to live, making government welfare mostly only necessary to the disabled (intellectual and physical). If everyone in America had access to universal healthcare, imagine how much medical costs would drop. I paid 24% taxes in the US, plus I had an insurance premium, co-pays, and deductibles, had to save for college for my boys, and for my retirement. This put me up to at least 40% of my salary if not more. Now I pay 32%. University will be tuition-free for my boys (they will need to buy books, and a living space). My pension comes out of my tax, plus My job puts in an additional 5%. I pay a co-pay every time I go to the Dr. Once I hit about $350, everything is free including prescriptions until Jan 1st. Prescriptions are cheap because the government does not allow drug companies to set the prices. I can buy private insurance as well, and it is very affordable due to the low-cost of medical services. I have found I do not need it though. Imagine how much cheaper healthcare would be if 300 million people paid $30 a month out of their paycheck, had to meet a $350/$400 cap, etc. The cost of medical care and procedures would drop because everyone would be covered and paying. In the long run, it would be so much cheaper than medicare and medicaid which are a joke. Every sick person that goes into an emergency room uninsured gets medical care, which is then charged back to the state. This stuff is coming out of your taxes, yet you are not benefiting for it, and it is not helping the greater good of society. (And here I thought all the issues with healthcare in the U.S. were resolved by the Affordable Healthcare Act, silly me. One factor that a quick Google search indicates is that Norway is a country with a small population that is able to subsidize welfare programs via oil revenues. That allows the government to provide education and healthcare below cost. It isn’t a question of how efficiently the Norwegians are able to organize a welfare state but rather how much a county with a small population can distribute oil revenues. I know very little about the Norwegian health care system. I can say that in countries such as Great Britain and Canada where the government provides health care they have longer waiting periods for that care and fewer available options for treatment. Such health care isn’t free, the system just separates the price of it from the actual cost. Aside from what one pays in taxes, one pays in terms of those longer waiting periods and fewer choices.Hidden costs have a habit of coming back to haunt you. I also know little about the Norwegian university system but I have some experience with the German system which is also government funded. Although admission is free, it is also very competitive depending on the field of study. My quick Google search does indicate that the more desirable fields of study, there are more applicants than places at Norwegian universities. To me that indicates that those who are able to attend pay only part of the cost through their taxes (and their share of the nation’s oil revenues) while receiving subsidies from everyone else. If the actual costs weren’t disguised in the welfare program, I wonder whether those who didn’t get to go to a university might have wanted to do something else with their tax dollars and their share of the oil revenues than paying for someone else’s education.)

The borders are wide open:
How do you think most illegal immigrants get to the United States? Over half of illegal immigrants arrive on a travel visa and just never go back, or arrive via border crossing cards and never go back. Our borders are more secure than they have ever been, and this is backed by statistical scientific findings. Also, illegal immigration has been steadily decreasing since 2005. Immigration from Mexico has decreased by 57% from 2008-2012 (Pew Research). Fact: The borders have never been so secure. There is no indication that people coming illegally are being allowed to vote. If and when this is happening it is a clear case of voter fraud. A more serious issue is Russia hacking into our voting machines, and influencing our political discourse. (I agree that a significant part of illegal immigration is from those who overstay their visas. I question those studies that indicate they outnumber those who cross the border illegally because I am skeptical of our ability to determine the latter figure. Ranchers who have land on the border and others see illegals crossing in significant numbers regularly but achieving a reasonable estimate of their number is guesswork especially given the active attempts to cover up their presence in sanctuary cities and elsewhere. If we can’t count them, how can we tell how many there are? As for the numbers going down, doesn’t that reduction in illegal immigration cited above coincide with the rise of sanctuary cities and other efforts to frustrate the counting of illegals? It reminds me of the famous “body counts” in the Vietnam war that proved to be wildly inaccurate. One other distinction between those who overstay their visas and those who enter illicitly is that there is some vetting as part of the visa process to exclude dangerous criminals and terrorists. Even if someone so vetted overstays a visa, they pose less danger of crime or terrorism because of the vetting. Regardless of the relative numbers, the potential risk increases with the lack of vetting. As for the claim that there is no indication that illegals are being allowed to vote, anyone claiming that hasn’t been following the reports of the many instances where they have been allowed and indeed encouraged to vote. As for Russia hacking into our voting machines, then President Obama stated just before the 2016 election that it hasn’t happened and couldn’t happen. If the FBI knew of it, I find it difficult to believe that they didn’t bother to inform the White House and I am skeptical that there exists evidence of it and the special prosecutor just hasn’t decided to announce it yet. As the saying goes: “You’re entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.”)

Enemies of the state emboldened by the left:
Like Russia is emboldened to meddle in our democracy and has not been condemned by the current administration? Like pandering to Kim Jong Un and treating him with more respect than our European allies? Like pandering to the Prince of Saudi Arabia, and just taking his word? When Saudia Arabia has produced those members of Al Qaeda that our government sanctions and gives a free pass to? I would say there are plenty of enemies of state emboldened by the right as well. (As regards Russian meddling, vide supra. Now as for the “pandering to Kim Jong Un” is this coming from the same anti-Trump people who criticized Trump for calling Kim “Little Rocket Man” and reminding him that although Kim might have a button, Trump’s was a lot bigger. Somehow, I missed the reports of Trump saying anything similar about our European allies. I assume that the comments about the Saudis refer to the death of Kashoggi. The sentence immediately following the criticism of Trump’s alleged pandering to the Saudi Prince takes him to task regarding the members of Al Qaeda whom the Saudis “gave a free pass.” That seems like another attempt to have it both ways. Kashoggi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group, an admirer of Bin Ladin. He was a supporter of Al Qaeda and ISIS. He was more than just an journalist. To me it appears that the worst that one can say about the Saudis is that they expired Kashoggi’s “free pass.” We use drones, they chose a different method. Also, the current Turkish administration has a pretty bad record regarding journalists. Is the left criticizing Trump for pandering to Erdogan? How about China?)
Obama is a far left Globalist:
I am a moderate conservative, and I was not a big fan of Obama, because I felt that he was too conservative and didn’t change anything very much from the Bush era. Globalist, maybe. Far left, no way. (Sorry fella, but saying that you are a moderate conservative who felt that Obama was too conservative just doesn’t pass the laugh test. If that’s your position, you obviously have a different definition of “conservative” than most of us who call ourselves conservatives use. I suspect that you are so far to the left that you think that you are in the center. I suggest that you have a few conversations with some real conservatives to get an understanding of how most of the country understands the term.)

Far left liberals resorting to increasing violence:
Factually both the far left and the far right are resorting to increasing violence. (Check out the recent riots in Portland, OR. The right has no counterpart acting on anything like the scale of Antifa. One doesn’t see the right mobbing politicians and bureaucrats at restaurants or in the halls of Congress. I would also suggest that it isn’t just the far left. People high in the Democratic party support and encourage it, for example Maxine Waters, Keith Ellison and Hillary Clinton to name just a few. In addition, the Mayor of Portland Oregon encouraged violence by preventing the police from protecting citizens from Antifa rioters. If you encourage the mob you share responsibility for their actions. You don’t see anything like that from people in authority on the conservative side.)

The nation has been polarized since the 2016 election:
Wrong. The nation has been becoming increasingly polarized over the last two decades. Some argue that it began with the 24-hour news cycle (Fox, MSNBC, CNN). (I agree that it has been increasingly polarized over the last two decades however the rate of increase has gone up dramatically since the 2016 election. Where was Antifa in 2008 and 2012?)

Democratic party controls the media:
No, they do not. News can show a definite bias, and that is something the reader needs to be aware of. One thing I think is really great here in Norway is that a newspaper or tv news has to pay a fine if they print/broadcast anything that cannot be factually backed up. Maybe try reading foreign press in regards to the US. Most of Europe is strict about reporting factual based news, and calling out non factual. (While the party might not actually control the media, the media is dominated by those who share the Democratic party’s agenda. During the Obama administration, they were caught agreeing to use administration talking points for their news stories. As for Norway’s fining the media for what they publicize if they can’t back it up factually, doesn’t that indicate a degree of government control over the media? Who decides if it is backed up? How many stories critical of the government are killed because the media is afraid to tangle with bureaucrats who have the power to fine them. From my own experience working in a (non-media) business highly regulated by the government I know how much power the threat of sanctions gives those bureaucrats. Consider this, a media outlet might be able to challenge government fines in court but they still lose because the government attorneys are paid for by the government but the media outlet must hire their own attorneys. That means that even though you beat the fine in court, you are still out the legal fees which often are more than the fine. ( if you don’t believe that, you’re lucky because you’ve never had to hire a lawyer.) Such control can be insidious. While the government might be inclined to fine someone for a news story critical of the government, they would have less incentive to do so with a story critical of the opposition. Similarly, they would have incentive to go easier on a newspaper or broadcast station that generally supports the government than one who is more often critical of it. Although you can readily see where the government chose to impose a fine, the cases where the government could have imposed a fine but didn’t are less apparent. Reasons for that forbearance generally are invisible because such cases are unlikely to be challenged in court, but those regulated will get the message. It’s like having a baseball umpire that is part of the home team. It’s hard to avoid the suspicion that whether he calls a pitch a ball or a strike isn’t influenced by his support for his hometown.)

The Third Reich started controlling what people saw and heard:
This only happened after the Reich won the peoples’ trust. Before they were able to control it, they had to poison the peoples’ minds against the press (hence the use of Lügenpresse, or lying press). Hitler launched a huge campaign to his rabid followers that they couldn’t believe what they were seeing, hearing, and reading (fake news). He told the truth, everyone else was lying. He was charismatic enough and had a following that had blinders on to everything besides him as a leader. Only then was the Reich able to actually control the media for propaganda purposes. (Hitler’s voter support peaked around 36-37%. He came to power in a coalition and he had street thugs similar to Antifa to support him as well. Once he controlled the police, he could let those thugs attack anyone who spoke against him (by the way, similar in kind though Hitler’s SA acted to a much greater degree than Portland Oregon let Antifa run wild.) Also, the concentration camps for political opposition opened early in his rule. It’s questionable how much he won the people’s trust and how much he won their fear. He promised much to the German people as well as made sure that they, disarmed and helpless to oppose him, knew that there was a stick as well as a carrot. That didn’t require general trust, just control over the government. If you don’t believe that the threat of violence can inhibit the press, I suggest that you ask your local paper to put on a “draw-Mohammad” contest and see what their reaction is.)
Anyway, I wanted to point out that by seeing one side as being inherently right/good and the other side as being inherently bad/wrong, you are a part of the problem and not the solution. (I agree that neither side has a monopoly of being right, but then again, you can say that about most any conflict. I suggest that the question isn’t who is 100% right but who is better at transferring power from the government back to individuals. After all, the individual is the ultimate minority.)

10 Scary Issues The Liberals Conjured Up…

Halloween is here and everyone’s in a spooky mood! Like most people, I can appreciate a good scare around Halloween. However, fact can be stranger than fiction any time of the year, and the scariness of the real world is no trick! Here are some of the scary issues going on today spurred on by radical liberals and the culture of political correctness (click on the links to read more in detail about each issue):

1. “Hook up” Culture

As said many times before, in our current culture, sex is just a handshake. Marriage is just dating 2.0. Young ladies are told they can dress like skanks for men. Traditional values of committed life long marriages, and striving for marriage as your ultimate relationship goal, not just a hook up, being a virgin on your wedding day, the things our grandparents did, is going away in our society in favor of cheap sex or instant gratification and pleasure. It’s society’s reflection of the “I can do whatever I want consequence free” attitude of irresponsibility and instant gratification. Sites like Tinder and others don’t help the matter! Nor does the mainstream media, TV and movies! Our youth is being taught this sleazy lifestyle, and many boomers are embracing it too, on to their 2nd and 3rd marriages in a culture rife with divorce, STD’s and unwanted pregnancy! When did we decide instant gratification took precedence over the desire for a better future down the road? When did it become acceptable for our daughters to fling themselves at every guy they see to be “empowered” women? When did marriage become dating 2.0? Scary if you ask me…

2. “Any Family is A Real Family”

To add to this list of horrors, and on a related note is the disintegration of the nuclear family. In a culture that goes for cheap sex and hook ups, more and more people who start families break them up for baser urges. “I’m leaving you for my secretary!”, “I’m divorcing you because I hate you and the kids!” “She’s hotter and gives me what I like…” etc… Then, many single mothers go on and whine then, and raise sons to be weak and feminized, and daughters to hate men and reject traditional femininity and marriage. Children are the ones who pay the price on this one. Children for broken homes are much more likely to have issues such as depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, trouble in school, “daddy issues”, a promiscuous lifestyle and repeat the cycle as adults! The glorification of single parenthood and the oppression of fathers in their children’s lives is rampant, and reflected in every psychology journal, magazines, TV, movies and the media! Even events like the father-daughter dance are being eradicated thanks to bitter single mothers! That’s not all though, the concept of same sex parents, who are in essence one parent since they don’t have the perspective of the other sex are being normalized too. The politically correct platitudes of “every family is a real family” go down the drain of reality when one sees the children who come out of it.

3. The Welfare State

Oh, this is a biggie! All the minorities and immigrants on welfare crying “victim” of past oppression and won’t better themselves or their communities but settle for government housing! They drain our school system who has to raise their children for them, drain our healthcare with all their problems and unwanted pregnancies, drain our economy, our government, our charities, our food supply, our housing, and certainly our tax dollars! Indeed, it’s you and I, the working class and the middle class, who foot the bill through our tax money. A portion of your salary goes to these leeches! And who would blame them? We enable them and they’ve been doing it for generations! Welfare should be for those who genuinely can’t work, like our wounded veterans, and respectable families who need that leg up to get back in the workforce. However, now, people are leeching off it and are they grateful? No! The people who bombed the Boston Marathon sure weren’t! Nor are the ghetto hoodlums in low income areas around the country, only bringing crime and continuing the cycle of poverty and anti-intellectualism (lest you be called an Uncle Tom). To make matters even more frightening, many literally believe WE owe THEM welfare from cradle to grave, and they reason why they have so many problems in their communities is due to white oppression! Even if that were true, why keep your neighborhood in crime and disarray? Why want nothing better for your children except to repeat the cycle and torment any good kids who want a future? Why bring nothing to this country in return for its charity? Appalling if you ask me, and guess who subsidizes all of this? (Hint: Liberal Democrats who want more votes…)

4. “Gender Benders!”

The issue of sex vs. gender is big now, and propagandized by mainstream psychology and science! In the “before time”, gender (which now the liberals say is distinct from biological sex) was determined the same way as sex. XX or XY human chromosomes. In recent years, due to influences like radical feminism that hates traditional gender roles, they decided it’s all arbitrary, and you can be anything you want regardless of genetics or settled science! People with what used to be called gender dysmorphia, are now normalized and victims of gendered oppression! Instead of a deep mental illness, it’s now perfectly normal for little boys to want to be little girls for instance! For grown men to “transition” into women and dismantle their families! Now, I don’t demonize the transgender people themselves, many do genuinely feel that way and have a real mental disorder. However, it’s not all harmless, such as the fact predators now are enabled to merely claim to be women to enter girl’s and women’s restrooms and locker rooms! More and more young people are being brainwashed by the idea gender is merely a social construct, not a normal biological one in normal people, and decide on impulse they’re the opposite gender, or even “other” that is neither gender! Until society stops normalizing a mental disorder as being progressive from the chains of gender roles, real women will be endangered by men pretending to be women to access their spaces, little boys and girls will be confused and brainwashed, families will be torn apart, and established objective science will be thrown away for popular sentiments and subjective propaganda!

5. The Cult of Victim-Hood

This encapsulates so many groups, minorities, women, LGBT etc… The common denominator though is the world is out to get them, and owes them compensation and reparations! They seek not to better themselves, or appreciate the work that was done to help them, but rather to constantly whine, complain and demand more and more! If you don’t comply, they go full blown tantrum, with vitriol, ad-hominem attacks, and straw man arguments! They don’t want you to speak frankly or give any honest critiques of them. They pretend to be helpless against their misfortunes, such as crime, gangs, and poverty, or “sexism” and the “patriarchy”, or traditional marriage, gender roles, biological sex, the nuclear family and such that they deem oppressive. They’re “triggered” by an opposing view, “microagressed” on by innocent people who have no clue what they said was even remotely offensive. They’re the snowflake generation that feels doomed for life and doesn’t lift a finger to build their own future because of propaganda by liberals about our doomed economy, workforce and prospects for young people. The women who cry #metoo for a sexual mistake after the fact decades from when it happened. The minorities that claim “white privilege”. The transgender people who demand science be overturned for their gender dysphoric disorder and the world cater to 1% of 1% of the population. The bitter single moms who hate men and the traditional family set up as the norm. Basically, a generation of snowflakes with no resilience and immense fragility!

6. Uncontrolled Borders

Immigration is a huge hot button topic. So are refugees. While many of us came from immigrants, it’s fair to say these ones are a bit different from the hard working industrious ones who helped build our country! The ones coming now, are draining our welfare system, medical care, schools, jobs etc… They’re bringing 3rd world cultures over to our country and making more crime and poverty. Many of these war torn refugees also bring the threat of terrorism in addition. Now, of course, there are exceptions to the rule. Some groups do bring more industry, and technology here, working in high powered careers. Not all Hispanic or Muslim immigrants are the lazy, backwards, stereotype and do work hard and try to better themselves and their families. Many do come here through legal channels, and don’t hop our borders only to leech off our system undocumented. I do genuinely feel for many in poverty and desperate straits who were forced to leave their culture and country. However, we can’t care for every person who is in need around the world. What about our own citizens? The homeless children and veterans. The poverty in our own country. Why is it always on America to take in these people and baby sit the world? Why can’t other countries pull their fair share too? People from war torn areas who have nothing are raised to be in a dog-eat-dog world. They bring that attitude of brutality over to 1st world nations like ours. Europe is in shambles over refugees bringing violent crimes like assault and rape as well as terrorism! MS-13 gangs and others plague our country from Hispanic countries. Why can’t our immigrants bring more assets to our country, not leeches? Until we can screen them more thoroughly, the bad apples get though too!

7. “Clash of The Cultures”

On another related note, comes the cultural clashes between 3rd world vs. 1st world values. Ones like freedom, equality and democracy! Ones where women aren’t assaulted, and people robbed at gunpoint, or killed! Ones where hard work is the norm, not victimhood and leeching off the welfare state only to bite the hand that feeds you! The extremes the PC liberals go to cater to them are astounding, with special Sharia law set up, or ethnic neighborhoods where any outsider will meet their doom, or turning a blind eye to 3rd world criminals and gangs so you can be politically correct and not face uncomfortable truths. The traditional American work ethic of the working middle class who supports themselves and brings more to the country than takes is going away for fragile snowflakes who cry oppression. Not just immigrants and refugees of course are guilty of this. Minority groups here in the US like the much of the poor black community for instance! A culture of ghetto life, welfare, crime, and poverty that hates education and intelligence is not good for the country! It’s all a slight to every one in these groups who is NOT like that and does work hard at an honest living and values our country.

8. Radical Feminism

The “Nasty Woman” movement really showed the extremes of the radical feminists. They brainwash our daughters to hate men and cry victim too. They infantilize women through the #metoo movement, painting women as helpless and clueless little children when it comes to sexual coercion. They try to say that traditional femininity is oppressive, traditional strong men are misogynists, and women ought to take part in hook up culture to be “liberated”. They do anything but make women look dignified! They replaced feminine elegance and grace of past generations with vulgar promiscuity, loose morals and masculine wannabes who resent men. From this movement stems callous attitudes like “her body her choice”, to misguided ones like shunning traditional femininity, the guidance of fathers, feminization of men, and more scary happenings!

9. Reverse Discrimination

White privilege and affirmative action are prime examples! It’s unbelievable what the victimhood culture has duped many to believe is right! They claim that only whites are racist, or men are sexist, due to social power, but discrimination is discrimination no matter whose side it’s on! Many white men and women too, are refused job offers, college acceptances and other opportunities like housing or even being chosen for promotions for instance due to their sex or color of their skin. Now, for some groups it’s racist or sexist, but others it’s not??? Pretty scary to think that inequality is being done in the name of equality!

10. Censorship of Conservative Views

Lastly, but certainly not least, the most scary thing of all is you can’t publicly say ANY of the above!!! I am forced to use a pseudonym as any of this would derail me socially and career wise! Almost all mainstream news sites are liberal and demonize conservatives (minus Fox News for now…). Major search engines like Google are blatantly liberal, and censor conservative sites, and social media like Facebook and Twitter also censor conservatives, even YouTube! Which are all owned by Google 😉 Even offline, people will shun you, and spew vitriol over conservative views. You can’t speak out even in your own family many times, and indeed, at least one family member shunned me over my blog! People have lost jobs, friendships, even family over being conservative. Some were even assaulted and lost their lives over conservative views! I guess we’re “in the closet” now! It’s a scary world out there for our lot, but there’s a silent majority rising, and pushing back. We need to support each other and speak out, to make our world a bit less scary 🙂

Lastly… Happy Halloween!

Leftist Parental Fears in Their Own Societal “House of Horrors”….

In keeping with a spooky theme of the Halloween season, I wanted to bring light upon this very pertinent, and honestly sad and disheartening observation: The Left sees everything that was once innocent or innocuous as sick and perverted in some manner or another! From extreme examples in parenting, to aspects of our #MeToo culture, to the Left, the world is a scary, predatory, unforgiving place! Ironic much of their fears revolve around sexual matters, when they advocate for sexual anarchy and hook up culture! The innocent is now perverted, and the perverted is now innocent! Thus, the paradox of the Left…

My first example, which inspired to to write on this comes from the many parenting forums and magazines I’ve read over the years. See, there seems to be this sense of moral panic, especially about raising girls. Questions of modesty, sexuality, and such are hotly debated, which seems appropriate for concerned parents, but many of these discussions take on paranoid extremes. For example, and I’ve written on this in specific detail before, the topic of little girl’s kitten heels and standard summer wedges are now seen as a way of exploiting and over-sexualizing girls. I’m not talking stripper stilettos mind you, but shoes such as these:

Image result for girls kitten heels rachel shoes      Image result for girls kitten heels rachel shoes

Now, do any aspect of these shoes scream “sex kitten” to you??? Are they the shoes you would imagine on a prostitute or stripper, or a little girl in a poofy flower girl dress??? If you’re like minded and reasonable, your answer would probably also agree with mine being the latter conclusion… 🙂 However, many of these “woke” mothers, radical feminists, look at such shoes in disgust, only seeing the worst possible interpretation, that they make girls look at themselves as sex objects and have low self esteem! Whatever happened though, to the image of the little girl wanting to look like mom and look like a grown up lady and that’s literally it? How exactly does 2 inches of kitten heel make you magically turn into a sex object???

Another example goes of course, with lightly padded bras for tweens and teens. Some parents literally sought out to decry a lightly padded training bra accusing it of over-sexualization, but the padding was merely to cover indecent nipples on a developing girl!  Or panic over the lace underwear that looks regular, not lingerie mind you, just plain old panties! I don’t understand this immense fear, as underwear is UNDER your clothes! The point for a modest girl is to NOT see it in public! Ergo, it makes ZERO difference if it’s plain white, lacy or leopard print. It will not be seen by anyone but you!!! Also noting, push up bras are not the path to promiscuity, I’ve worn them for years in my teens, with no thought of hooking up, nor unwanted advances. Your brain, not your boobs, ladies, decide how you act 😉 I’m so grateful my parents did not let such paranoia cloud their judgement, and raise a rebellious girl who was starved for autonomy, but instead one who thought for herself, and chose to be modest in action and dress as her own intrinsic choice!

Oooh!!! So sick and perverted! The Horror!!!

Parents, there are FAR bigger battles to pick than underwear and 2 inch heels! I honestly  feel sorry for the parents, who parent in such extreme fear. I mean, what made you feel that the world is so sick and perverted, that a little girl’s kitten heel signals a toxic view of her sexuality she doesn’t even have yet?! I’m inclined to think some of these pearl clutching parents have had some traumatic experience of their own, by the level of fear they write with in discussing these issues. Perhaps it’s also radical feminist brainwashing that anything feminine is oppressive to women. Hook up culture is real, but kitten heels and training bras are not the path to it…

On a related note, comes the paranoia of the #MeToo era. I’ve written about this in great detail too in several posts already, however, I wish to bring to light the paranoia it spawned in what many would have seen as completely innocent and innocuous things even a year or so ago! The Girl Scouts, for example, told parents to stop having girls hug their relatives, or else it would set them up to take sexual favors in the future! I mean, seriously??? Hugging grandpa will send signals of sexual coercion being permissible? Is that the message YOU got from your childhood??? What about the idea that a fairy tale with the prince kissing Snow White or Sleeping Beauty sends a message of male sexual aggression and rape? Now a fairy tale must be “unpacked” to uncover its dangerous rape apologist side? Now think back: as a child, growing up with these stories, did you truly believe it was okay for a man to forcibly kiss or touch a woman because prince Charming kissed the princess awake? What about the idea that a little boy being a boy was a sexual threat if he kissed a girl on the cheek and she said “Eew! Cooties!” or a 5 year old boy being seen as a sexual assaulter because he hugged his teacher? Does this seem even remotely realistic, that a child who is years away from puberty could be some perverted sexual predator? What sort of sick perverted, twisted view of the world does one need to think on such terms? A world where a hug from grandpa is a set up for accepting sexual coercion.  A world where a little boy, in kindergarten is a sexual predator for kissing a girl in an innocent way as children do. A world where hugging your favorite teacher is an assault of the vilest degree. A world where the innocent is now evil, and the evil now innocent (as in many Leftist agendas)… What a strange paradox!

Hook up culture, promiscuity, immodesty, are all a-okay now and promoted. Broken families, divorce, sub par parenting, a consequence free attitude of entitlement are all perfectly acceptable to the Left, but heaven forbid a child hug her grandpa, kiss a girl, wear 2 inch heels to a party, try on her first training bra, enjoy a fairy tale, just be a little boy even! Such things that were once innocent and innocuous are now seen as perverted and damaging! I ask again: What leads a parent, or anyone really, to have such a distorted view of the world and society??? Things a generation ago were perfectly okay, and a part of everyone’s childhood!

Is our world really so perverted and disgusting, a cesspit of toxic sexuality and promiscuity hiding behind every corner, that a kitten heel is the same as the stripper’s stiletto, or the innocent elementary school crush toxic masculinity at work? That hugging your relatives on the holidays will lead to a life of sexual abuse by men? If they are indeed correct, maybe it’s their own fault we have fallen so far! A society where hook ups are handshakes, girls sleep around, and not save themselves for marriage, women are told they can dress as sleazy as they please, and are “empowered” to do so, divorce is normalized, broken homes rife all for the thrill of the next partner, I guess we have fallen far from being a more virtuous society!!! Thing is though, it is not us conservatives stirring that pot. We want a world where girls cherish their purity, and have self-respect. We want a world where every billboard has something else than a half naked lady on it. We want a world in which girls can be girls, and boys can be boys without some Freudian fantasy of sick perversions and uncontrolled ids!

The Left, and radical feminism has told lies of sexual anarchy equals empowerment though. Hook up culture is on them, not us! All the Leftist parents cowering in terror for their children’s innocence have played a part in creating this monstrosity by drinking the radical feminist kool aid about hook up culture as empowerment while sending mixed signals to repress one’s sexuality or see adult themes in innocuous things! Good news is though, I don’t think our world has indeed fallen as far was we think. Hugging grandpa is still just hugging grandpa. A playground kiss is a playground kiss. A little girl’s party shoe is for a party, nothing more. A training bra for tweens is a rite of passage, not a passage into promiscuity. Stop cowering in fear, people, and just see innocent things for what they are, not what your fears tell you they are. This sick perverted worldview is unhealthy and mentally damaging for you just as much as your children! Often, there really is nothing to fear but fear itself…

When Incivility Becomes Explosive: A Guest Post by Time Foolery

Time Foolery is a wonderful “Lady of Reason” I met through Twitter! She has insightful ideas and a talent for writing! Here’s her insightful take on the current bomb scares:

On Wednesday, October 25th, a series of non-lethal “bombs” were “delivered” to leading Democrats and, before anyone can begin looking for a culprit, CNN et al. immediately jumped on President Donald J. Trump and blamed his “rhetoric” for the event, which many see as merely a false flag operation meant to enrage Democrats and get them voting. Republicans are currently out-voting Democrats in early polling, and many Dems literally walked away in the past month with vows to vote red this November thanks to Democratic bad behavior over the Kavanaugh hearings.

Violence of any kind is deplorable, but incivility in this world is nothing new. Democrats who are holding on tooth-and-nail seem to have a serious problem equating the behavior of their leaders to what happened, if it was indeed a true terroristic threat. In the past two years, Republicans have faced harassment in restaurants and at their jobs. Cars with Trump- related bumper stickers have been vandalized. Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot. Candidates were attacked just last week. Antifa creates riots every chance they get. And WHO has encouraged such behavior? NOT Republicans.

Maxine Waters, Eric Holder, and Hillary Clinton all recently have called for incivility towards Republicans, with Holder telling his mindless followers that when Republicans go low, “we kick them!” With this truly violent rhetoric coming from the Left aimed at their less-than-intelligent base, it’s no wonder places like Berkeley became a scene of rioting, at the direct behest of Maxine Waters no less!! And they wonder why someone from the Right might do something like this??

The fact is, Republicans have been tolerating the Left and their calls for Communist-style incivility for the past two years simply because we won and saw this behavior as being to our benefit ultimately. The ongoing temper tantrums and craziness caused the #WalkAway Movement to be born, then gave it over 20,000 new followers in the short time since the Kavanaugh hearings. People who are critical thinkers saw the theatrics for what they were – a George Soros-funded “Free Fer All” designed to damage the entire legal process by trying to discount it completely. If they can’t get what Soros wants honorably, he gives them money, printed signs and his blessing to wreak havoc. This time, it didn’t work and he didn’t want to pay his minions afterward. Apparently he only pays on results, and the protesters began protesting that their checks never arrived. That certainly told the tale for anyone who was left wondering what the hell they’d just witnessed in the hearings. It was no longer a suspicion, it was a confirmation that a Hungarian outsider is, and has been, seeking to subvert the Constitution, and the United States itself.

And yet there was still no outrageous reaction from the Right. It was all “par for the course” in recent years and again, letting them misbehave did more for Republicans than it ever did for the Democrats. And early voting proves that.

So, next ploy: a caravan of Honduran and other illegals is paid to head north to invade the United States. Who exactly is footing the bill is ambiguous, but Soros’ Open Society has its name written all over it. It’s an idea – challenge immigration law and ICE by sending people supposedly looking for a better life to engender support for the abolishment of our immigration laws. But then the stories started coming to the fore that it’s mostly men on the move; that there are criminals and MS-13 amongst them; and that the few women and children on the march are being sexually attacked by men in the caravan. Nothing that wouldn’t scare the pants off any free thinker who realizes this isn’t a group who’s truly looking for a better life, but know they’ll get it anyway in return for their votes if the Democrats have anything to say about it. This was meant to drum up sympathy for illegals, but instead it has frightened Republicans and Democrats alike who realize this is a disaster walking our way. Another failed attempt by Liberals to excite their base.

So, what else to do to get sympathy and “righteous” indignation going? Trying to take out a good man and his family didn’t work. Harassing and attacking Republicans and their leaders didn’t work. And now the caravan has backfired tremendously. You can almost hear Hillary Clinton’s cogs turning, “I know! Let’s have a fake bomb scare!”

This wouldn’t be the first time in history that a political party has created a false flag operation to shore up flagging political power. Hitler himself had the Reichstag burned and blamed it on a Communist patsy to build up angst against his political enemies with those who weren’t already on the Nazi bandwagon. And it’s a play straight out of Saul Alinsky’s own directive on how to take down your opponents. In short, it reeks of Democratic desperation and very few are buying CNN’s line that Trump caused this. This isn’t to say that some less-than-normal nut job didn’t do this, and it’s certain someone has already been lined up to take the fall if not, but how long did Democrats expect Republicans to keep taking their bad behavior before clap-back commenced? How many Antifa roadblocks need to go up before normal citizens get fed up and someone less able to control themselves returns the favor? Two years almost exactly.

Whether real or false flag, this divisiveness and the violent rhetoric of the Democratic Party has the full blame for this current climate and are already receiving their punishment in having caused their Blue Wave to fizzle out. It will be interesting to see what happens after the election and the Democrats have lost yet again.


Thanks so much Time Foolery for your insightful take on the issue! 🙂 I will stress the caveat though, that until we know more we should not be too confident this was not one of our own gone rogue. However, the case she presents is a strong one for sure! If the perpetrator was a conservative all I have to say is this:

We must condemn violence on any side of the aisle including our own! No matter how loony the Left gets we must never stoop to their level and incite violence ourselves! I strongly oppose the targets threatened but I will never condone intimidating them with any violence of any kind. Ideas must be fought with ideas, not threats of violence! I am glad all are safe and unharmed! Threaten the ideas; NEVER the people holding them…

All Cultures are Valid… Except Ours!

So, an academic topic I really enjoy is cultural anthropology. I find it extremely fascinating to study what makes up elements of culture, and the cultural variation around the globe. Perhaps the most fascinating thing to me, and I’m sure many anthropologists is the idea that an idea or concept in our worldview, can seem so “normal” we take it completely for granted and feel it’s just the way the world works, not culturally bound. For example, our idea of time as linear, we can go forward in time, but not back to most, including me is just another law of the universe. However, some cultures see time as cyclical, which to many of us in the West, is a completely foreign concept! Even things such as a shared word meaning between two languages that can be translated the same, can have different definitions to different cultures! Confused??? The word in each language would be translated the same such as “bara” in Ancient Hebrew, is “to create” in English, but in the West, we think of creation as “ex-nihilo”, out of nothing, you create something by putting materials together for instance, whereas in the Ancient Hebrew conception of creating, it really meant more in the sense of everything is there, but they reorganize it all to bring order from chaos. Think of this analogy: We can “create” a closet out of wood and plaster, or we could “create” order within the closet by rearranging all our misplaced junk inside of it! Point is, much of what is true in people’s worldviews are relative, not always the same objective way of thinking. I love studying these cool differences, and appreciate the wide variety of thought within the human species! It would be quite boring if we were all the same!

However, issues do arise when cultural differences are more of a moral and ethical nature. Values we reject as deeply unjust and unfair do not sit well with our cultural view of the matter. It’s hard to be the objective anthropologist when you’re morally offended! Therefore, they came up with the principle of cultural relativism, which basically is the idea we should’t judge other cultures for their way of life, nor feel ours is “superior” and we’re above the rest of the world. This is all fine and dandy, within scholarship and objective study, but what about when cultural clashes happen in our own lives???

Many cultures coming over to this country are in opposition to many of our values, such as a more egalitarian, democratic society. They are more hierarchical and rigid, whereas we want more social mobility and equality. They want to treat women as property, and we strive for a more egalitarian view of them as fellow humans, endowed with the same rights as we have and ought to have the same autonomy. They don’t want a sense of cultural relativism, and feel theirs is the only “right” way of doing things. We try to Related imageembrace more differences between peoples. They want unquestioned authority, whereas we want the ability to hold our leaders accountable. They want only one faith, while we enshrined separation of church and state. They want to speak their native language, yet demand we accommodate them instead of learning ours too to integrate with us. They want only to have their own ways, never thinking they could embrace both our ways and their own. They want to use brute force and fear, rather than diplomacy to settle disputes. They want to treat their children as property as well, while we want to nurture them into becoming autonomous adults. This isn’t the whole of the matter, but many examples of how Western values and other values don’t quite mix as well… Many speak of a “culture war” between the West and many other 3rd world countries, and its true, we want one thing, they want another.

The defenders of such 3rd world values say, but, isn’t much of this culturally relative? Who’s to say who has  the “better” values? Aren’t we just being bigoted when we impose our ways onto others? Those points would be valid, except that our way HAS shown to be more beneficial in objective, not just moralistic or culturally dependent terms. Think of it: more 3rd world immigrants come to the West, not their own fellow 3rd world countries. People have given up the culture and language they were born into, lost everything just to come over to the West! Why??? What would make us take such a drastic leap of faith? Our science has lead to technologies, medical care, and progress that has decreased mortality rates across the board at all ages! We now can treat disease and illness. People have a much higher standard of living over here. Compared to countries where slavery is still around, ethnic and cultural minorities and women are 3rd class citizens, a disease can kill you, infant mortality is sky high, people are slain for being “heretics”, dictators rule with an iron fist over the helpless people, corruption is rife, and so on and so on, Western values of democracy and equality and more technology to better people’s lives sounds a lot better for everyone! The data is in, and shows a thriving culture based on Western values here and abroad! This isn’t merely a moral argument on how things should be because I said so, but based on human quality of life supported by data!

The radical left, however, is not swayed. They still want to drudge up some of our more unflattering past of being imperialist and intolerant ourselves towards other cultures, but that has PAST! We’re far more tolerant and aware of being culturally relativist now more than ever! They want to claim that we must be “tolerant” of these 3rd world cultures coming into the West, but create a double standard when it is applied to our own culture!  Think of it:

  • We’re not allowed to say we want our culture to remain governed by our values, yet the people coming here from the 3rd world are allowed to live by theirs over here!
  • We are not allowed to proselytize our values over in THEIR country, yet they are free to do so in OURS!
  • We can’t impose our morality on them, yet they can on us when it’s convenient!
  • They can live by their own laws, in their own insular communities, and be governed by their own values, but when we demand that too, we’re “white supremacists”…
  • They can worship their own faith exclusively without criticism in their community, yet we’re held to the higher principle freedom of religion for all, yet they are exempt!
  • We must accept that cultural differences do exist, and are equally valid as ours, yet they are allowed to degrade ours!
  • Even a more innocuous example, other cultures all over the world are allowed their own standards of beauty for men and women, yet we are criticized for having our own cultural ideal of beauty because that’s not “body positive”!
  • They can think freely whatever they want, and be defended by “cultural relativism” while our cultural ideas are scrutinized and nit picked to the max!
  • When they treat others, women, minorities, those of lower social status, etc… as 3rd class citizens and property over here, we are supposed to shut up and accept that as “their way’, yet if we ever tried to pull a stunt like that, we’d have to answer for it!
  • The “West” is intolerant, rigid, and moralistic, yet other Non-Western cultures are put on a pedestal of resistance to the West and portrayed by the Left dare I say, as “noble savages” (which is ironic since that’s an imperialist stereotype in itself!)
  • Western medicine and science is devalued for more “natural” cures from 3rd world places which have no scientific basis!

When do we get our share of cultural relativism??? The principle goes BOTH ways, people! If we have to tolerate them, and all we disagree with culturally of theirs, why aren’t the same arguments made in our defense too when we’re criticized? Overall, the radical liberal snowflakes only have “tolerance” and relativism for what they pick and choose! Our culture is a-okay to bash, degrade and deride! It’s also amazing, I’ll add as my final point, that many 3rd world values are exactly what the Left accuses us of having that is immoral, which for rabid liberals, is quite the irony!!! 😉

The hypocrisy of the Left is astounding when it comes to cultural relativism!

My #WalkAway Story Series: Cautious Conservative

My #WalkAway Story Series is a bigger and more long term project for A Lady of Reason, and it’s all about YOU! This is your big chance at getting your voice heard and your own story out there! For many closeted conservatives, afraid for our livelihood, social networks, family connections, even physical safety now, being stuck in the closet can be extremely isolating and it’s easy to feel like it’s you against the world sometimes! I certainly feel that way! By sharing our stories collectively, I hope to give a voice to you, my dear readers and followers here on WordPress and Social Media, to show each other camaraderie and that in fact, we’re NOT alone, just in the shadows. Well folks, it’s time to come out of the shadows and into the light! The “silent majority” is at least half of our nation, so you’re not truly alone. Come and hear others, and add your own voice, your own story to the mix, of what it’s like being a conservative in an increasingly Leftist country! Send me an e-mail at aladyofreason@outlook.com or direct message me at @aladyofreason1 on Twitter to add YOUR story!!! 🙂 I’ll send you the standard question list, or you can just write it free form as a narrative…

This next #walkaway story comes from a Twitter follower who chose to go under the pseudonym “Cautious Conservative”. He has found the bravery to speak out and make the “silent majority” a little less silent 🙂 As a white, middle aged, Christian man, he is in one of the last groups left that’s socially acceptable to spew racism, sexism, vitriol, ageism, and religious intolerance towards. I commend him for speaking out, as unlike some conservatives, he has about zero “privilege” to use to speak out in his identities! Though it may seem like the world is against you, many many are right alongside you! This is his #WalkAway story:

When did you become conservative? If you were ever liberal, what made you walk away?
I was “raised” in a blue-dog democrat family (in rural Alabama) and thought Jimmy Carter was God’s gift to America when I was in High School. {Hardly “liberal” but not conservative.} Then, I went off to Auburn University, one of the most conservative public universities in the country, learned the value of hard work and taking care of myself, and my views evolved. There wasn’t a watershed moment, although the Iranian hostage release to Reagan was close.

Do you feel at all afraid to be openly conservative? If so, how do you cope with being closeted?
Yep. I was raised in the South, worked for almost 30 years in the federal government. I learned to keep my best thoughts to myself *not* because it was politically-incorrect but because it was the law. But, it wasn’t very hard because almost every person I knew regardless of gender or race agreed on the most important issues, even though some voted differently. (Granted, Obama changed the definition of “what we could agree on” and made things much, much harder out in the wild.) Just three years ago, I retired and moved to Colorado for a new job. Objective folks may say Colorado is “a purple state” but Denver-metro and Boulder County are the real thing. I have had some people totally “unfurl” to me (on the job) because they assume everyone is like them. Raised in the South, I am quiet and reserved — so, I manage and I cope. There are just a few folks here that are “woke” to the South (to borrow a phrase) — when I first arrived, a few older guys that understood the South asked me around about questions like, “So, obviously you are Baptist — what else can you tell me about yourself?” Sort of a safe test, that I would confirm or deny and pretty much reveal my beliefs and politics. Typically, I’d just say something like “My mother taught Sunday School in a rural Baptist Church for 50 years but my granny was Church of God (which, if they truly know the South, make Baptists look like Catholics).” From there, we develop secret handshakes, codes, and ciphers (grin).

What advice to you have for other conservatives afraid to speak out?
Look, as a straight, white, conservative, middle-aged, Christian man, it isn’t about fear. It is about peace. I am angry as hell about the Christine Blasey Ford falderal. But, God save me if I dare say anything about it. #MeToo is very real, young lady. If someone like me questions Ford’s motives or integrity, I am admitting to be a sexist (if not a closet rapist). I have one very dear friend here at the office, a guy raised in Louisiana, as liberal as all get-out, but we seldom converse about politics; however, I strayed and mentioned to him my complete frustration with Senator DiFi making a mockery of the confirmation process. He lost his mind and was screaming at me about Merrick Garland (Obama’s lame-duck nomination). Yeah, don’t do it, boys. Just mind your business and vote every November. What I do try to do is read news from across the aisle, more so than from my own camp. (I try to watch ZERO televised “news” because it is thoughtless drivel regardless of the side.) READ. Sun Tzu said it this way, “If you (truly) know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” Finally, I’d say pick your battles.

Thank you so much! Your wisdom is awesome and much needed! I’m honored you took the time to share your wonderful story and advice with the world! Feel free to come again and write a guest post, or comment, here on A Lady of Reason. It’s nice to know allies are out there, and we must all speak out for each other! They may force us into the closet at times, but we will always find ways to step out! 🙂

#NotHim: Kavanaugh Is Confirmed!!!

 Judge Kavanaugh is now JUSTICE Kavanaugh!!! 

This is a huge victory for the common man and woman, to have an honorable man such as Kavanaugh in our judicial branch of government! For a man smeared so vilely, and had his family attacked, it seemed impossible for him to get in due to the paranoia of the Left! The #MeToo hysteria seemed to rage on, but evidence, facts and reason luckily prevailed in the end 🙂 The accusation of sexual assault, even gang rape of women is vile, and must be taken seriously, however, feelings must not rule the day over facts and evidence! Due process is a cornerstone of our democracy, as so many regimes can smear and punish people on whims and made up charges, whereas our nation demands more: solid proof of guilt before declaring it! “Innocent until proven guilty” in a court of law is the law of the land, but so often, it gets obscured in the court of popular opinion and the kangaroo courts of feelings! The Left has shown just how vile it can become, just to get its way, and I think that is why this political miracle, dare I say considering the rampant vitriolic Left, occurred!

You see, this is not just any supreme court nomination. No! I don’t often believe it when people say that an event is the most unique or unprecedented in history to be literally true, but I will say that Kavanaugh’s confirmation IS indeed a historic moment for the political fabric of this nation! Confirming Kavanaugh has shown that we the people, will NOT bow to the court of feelings and popular opinion. We will NOT bow to Leftist lunacy, and no due process for the accused! We will NOT “Flake” out 😉 of upholding justice and the laws of the land, and the values of our democracy! And most importantly, we WILL NOT condemn a man, or anyone without evidence and facts!

This is not just about Kavanaugh either! This was about every father, husband, son, brother, uncle, nephew, male friend, and every man in America! Men who could at the word of some spiteful accuser, have his life torn apart, attacked and decimated! Just look at Kavanaugh leading up to this monumental moment: his reputation smeared, his wife and daughters sent death threats. His 10 YEAR OLD subject of a vile, disgusting cartoon! A 10 year old little girl who was innocent of anything her father ever did!!! THAT people, is what the Left has shown us it is capable of: Attacking not only his wife, but his CHILD! And they say they defend the vulnerable…. (Grrrrr…..) This confirmation sets a positive precedent for all men in this country, one of due process, fair investigations, and FACTS over feelings! We should all rejoice, men and women alike, for you, gentlemen, are safer, and you, ladies, breathe a sigh of relief for your husbands, brothers, fathers, sons etc…. Will this stop every part of the risk towards men? No! Certainly not! We must still fight the fight. This is just one victory, in a larger war! However, we must relish in the victories, and brace for our losses. This vote has sent a message to the country, “We will not tolerate the kangaroo court of feelings and mob rule, we stand with the laws of the land and the values of our democracy”… That, for our men, is a victory! Rejoice!!!!

However, the fight is not over! Our victory must not make us blinded and lazy. We won the battle, but not the war! The Left is going insane as we speak! Just as bad, perhaps, as when Trump got in as president! They will want to impeach him now, but luckily that will be harder to do than keep him out now he’s in! Kavanaugh, although he won, still lost in many ways. He lost some of his reputation to slander. He lost countless hours worrying. He lost having joy in his home since this whole fiasco began. He lost his peace of mind for his threatened wife and children. The children lost their innocence, as yes, they know the truth of all the vile allegations! I’m sure they too, lived in fear of being hurt, attacked, slandered themselves! Imagine being 10 or 13, and having his family be YOURS at that vile time of chaos! His wife had to show an amazing depth of fortitude and loyalty. A TRUE virtuous wife ladies, we must all strive to be! Yes, today, the Kavanaugh family can rejoice with the rest of us, but the trauma they each faced personally, and as a family still must be addressed. They will always carry those wounds with them from the vile Leftist smear campaign! What can we do to help? VOTE!!! Vote for common sense and reason! Get your voices heard! Show Kavanaugh and every other man in your life that you will not stand for what happened these past few weeks, ladies! We walked a thin line today. He only won by 2 votes. A little more push, and the Left could have easily won! Rally the troops for the fight for reason, common sense and justice whenever we can, —and must! Kavanaugh’s confirmation, overall, lets us say with the greatest joy:

#NotHim!!!
