Happy Black Friday You Crazy Bastards!

If you set your alarm and got up at 4:30 this morning to go Black Friday shopping, kudos to you. I have never done it and I probably never will. Mainly because I keep finding that the stuff I want to GO OUT and get that's on sale, I can get online.

This year it was some Nano bug habitats from radio Shack that I needed and was going to go ahead and get out at ass crack of dawn to get them HALF PRICE. But after talking to some of my Twitter folks about it one of them suggested trying to buy it online and see what price I get. Well, I did just that. I found the items on radio Shack online and added them to my cart and they were the Black Friday price ON THURSDAY!!

I did get out today and ended up at Walmart but I didn't go until almost 1 p.m. I figured most of the crazy pushy Black Friday bastards would be done by 1 and I was right. It was almost back to normal in the store by the time I got there. I even got a decent parking space, which usually doesn't even happen on regular days.

My oldest son came over today and had Thanksgiving dinner. I coked everything last night because I got bored and just reheated everything today for him. The two youngest kids are still at their dad's house visiting with out of town cousins. I have had 3 days of a quiet house. I may get used to this. They might need to go ahead and come on back home before I get so use to the quiet I don't allow them to talk or make noise anymore. =)

I am almost through Christmas shopping. I only have a few more items to buy. It's all back in my closet waiting to be wrapped. I hate wrapping presents and I usually put it off until the last minute. My kids are already asking me why they don't have any presents under the tree yet. They know I have bought stuff. But I just haven't wrapped anything yet. I haven't even bought any tape yet. I couldn't wrap anything if I wanted to unless I used BOX TAPE. lol.

So how was your Thanksgiving? Did you go shopping today? If you did, did you get your hands on what you went for or were they sold out?

Today my daughter used the word Ergo in a sentence and she used it properly. I know she hasn't heard me say that so I asked here how she knew that word. She said, "I'm 10 mom, duh!" So, I said "Ok, miss smarty pants what does Ergo mean? Explain the word to me." She said, "Ergo means therefore." Yes, why yes it does. But she didn't hear that from me. I have taught her what ET AL means in crossword puzzles (AND OTHERS) =) I told her what Carpe Diem meant, what Mano e Mano meant, but not Ergo. One point for the daughter.

I have a lot of stuff backed up on my DVR from Sunday through now like Dexter, Snapped, and about 5 other shows I haven't watched so tonight is DVR night. It was Tuesday new release at Blockbuster day but there was only 2 movies I rented. One is a new Tyler Perry play and one was a movie my husband wanted me to rent, Expendables with all the OLD actor guys in it. Also, I may be saying goodbye to Blockbuster in store. I use Blockbuster by mail and BB in store every Tuesday. But they have recently went from NO LATE FEES to bringing back late fees and making it to where you have to bring movies back in 5 days or pay one dollar per day per movie in late fees. As of today the new rental is same price (5 bucks) for a THREE DAY rental. Now the movies you rent on Tuesday have to be back by Friday night. The only positive change is any movie older than 6 weeks old is just $2.99 now and the old family favorites movies are just .99 now. I rent brand spanking new movies, so my rental fess has not gone down only my rental time has decreased. Now to rent a movie for 3 days at 5 plus tax is way more than it costs to rent a movie at Redbox. They are just one dollar per day. I have never used Redbox but I may start.

I am going to have my husband get one of those cables that allow your computer to work through your TV and change from Blockbuster to Netflix so I can still get movies through the mail but I can also stream TV shows and movies through the computer onto the TV. That will save us about $120 a month from me no longer renting movies from Blockbuster in store.

Do any of you use Netflix streaming? I was curious how old the movies have to be before you can stream them? From what I understand you can't stream the brand new movies, right? You have to stream older new releases? And you can have a membership that allows you to have movies by mail AND the streaming feature also?

My two youngest kids will be with their dad for Thanksgiving through Friday or so, so it will be just me and my oldest kid/son for TGiving. His girlfriend has to work Thursday. I was going to possibly wait and cook Friday so they both could come but she won't know if she has to work Friday until she goes to work I am not sure what to do on that one. I went to Kroger and bought a smoked turkey and a regular Honeysuckle turkey (for Christmas) since they had the Honeysuckles on sale for 37 cents a pound or 39 cents a pound one or the other, not sure. But I got a $19 turkey for 5 bucks and some change. If you have a deep freezer now would be the time to stock up on a few turkeys. ONLY THING IS, you can only buy one turkey per visit with an additional 10 dollar purchase. So I would have to GO BACK and buy 10 more dollars worth of shit and get another turkey, but I don't really have enough room in my deep freezer for more than one turkey. It's full of other things like frozen pizzas, TV dinners, frozen bacon, chicken patties and chicken know...all those processed foods we shouldn't be feeding our kids. Yep. I suck like that. =)

I have recently had some incidents of step mom spanking my kids. And before you drop your jaw to the ground and tell me I should have her arrested... this is not the first time this has happened. We have been through this whole scenario one other time. She is not hurting the kids. It is impossible to physically hurt these 2 kids. You could whoop their ass all afternoon and they wouldn't cry. So there's no point in actually doing it because it is ineffective and in some places, illegal. I have made it clear BEFORE when it happened that my ex husband was NOT to allow his wife to put her hands on my kids, for any reason, ever. I thought we had this understanding already. And not only did she "pop" my daughter on her ass, she did it in PUBLIC at Kroger in front of a bunch of other people and humiliated my 10 yr old daughter. Supposedly my daughter wouldn't leave my son alone, kept picking at him, then put her hands on him. Daughter says she just wrapped her arms around him from behind, the stepmom says daughter was practically CHOKING son. 2 different stories. The worst part is not that she "popped" my daughter in public even, it's that she told her she was about to pop her and "don't care if it makes your mom mad" YEAH! She knew I wouldn't want her touching my kids and she did it anyway.

Ex husband shouldn't be leaving his/my kids alone with the step mom that SO OBVIOUSLY doesn't like the kids. This is hunting season and he likes to go hunting TWICE a day and leave the kids with step mom. Keep in mind he rarely has them to begin with, but when he does he is dumping them off with someone who doesn't want to be keeping them. She is all about her grown kids and her little grand kids and she could give a shit less about her step kids. She is pretty obvious about her dislike for them. They are not bad kids. They just aren't HER KIDS.

I wrote my ex husband a very strongly worded email that told him basically if his wife touches my kids one more time I am going to take his ass to court, get full custody of the kids (we share them now) and get a big ass paycheck of child support from him every month. And considering that his wife has HIT my kids numerous times, there is no doubt in my mind that I would win against him and he knows it. Instead of talking to his wife about it like a grown up would, he FORWARDS her my entire email that I wrote TO HIM. She responded BACK TO ME from my email he forwarded to her and basically told me that I won't have to worry about her touching my kids anymore because she won't watch them for him anymore and she refuses to be left alone with them anymore. I guess she figured if she can't hit them then she just can't watch them. My daughter begged me not to confront them about it or say anything to her dad about it because she knew her dad would say something to his wife about my daughter "telling on her" and she is going to treat my daughter badly or differently. Now she is embarrassed to go to her dad's house for Thanksgiving because she has to face step mom. It's a phucked up situation where it basically boils down to me having the kids even MORE than I already do. He won't give up his hunting and if SHE won't keep the kids while he goes hunting then he is just going to NOT GET THEM so he can go hunting.

Makes you feel better about your own life, huh? =)

So what are your holiday plans this year? What does your family do for Thanksgiving? And do you have Netflix? Clue me in on how it works!

What does the Easter Bunny have to do with Jesus Phucking Christ?

I was bored today and got to pondering how exactly it is that a mythical magical hopping Easter Bunny became part of a holiday that is based on religion? How exactly did we go from Easter (The day that Jesus supposedly- and I say supposedly cause you know I don’t believe it) rose from his burial tomb and ascended to heaven? Yeah. SO where does the bunny & eggs come into play? Well, you know I have a love/hate relationship with my good friend GOOGLE, and sometimes SNOPES, but this is what I came up with as far as information on how the Easter bunny came to be.

As it turns out, the Easter bunny has a long history as a pagan symbol that predates the Christian holiday. In fact, my snooping suggests that early Christians purposefully co-opted the pagan hare to popularize their own holiday.

Quite a few pagan cultures hold celebrations in the spring. It's the time of year when plants return to life after being dormant all winter and when animals mate and procreate. These festivities celebrate the renewal of life and promote the fertility of crops, animals, and even people, which was important in these agrarian communities. The Saxons believed in a maiden goddess of fertility named Eastre or Eostre (Oestre in Latin) and honored her with a spring festival. Hares and rabbits were considered sacred to Eastre because they are notoriously fertile animals.

In the second century A.D., Christian missionaries tried to convert northern European tribes. To help make Christianity attractive, the missionaries turned pagan festivals into Christian holidays. The pagan Eastre festival occurred around the same time as the Christian celebration marking Christ's resurrection so the two celebrations blended into one, rabbit and all.

Over time, Eastre became Easter, and the symbolism changed as well. Instead of the Easter rabbit symbolizing fertility, the rabbit may symbolize an innocent, vulnerable creature that can be sacrificed, similar to the lamb. To Christians, these innocents are tokens of Christ and the sacrifice he made.

The Easter bunny we know today was influenced by German traditions dating back to the 1500s. German children believed that the Oschter Haws (a magical rabbit) would leave them a nest of colored eggs at Eastertime if they were good. Pennsylvania Dutch settlers brought this tradition to America in the 1700s.

On a related note, eggs have long been a symbol of rebirth and thus associated with spring celebrations. In the 600s, Pope Gregory the Great forbade the eating of eggs during Lent (the 40 days proceeding Easter), and this helped make eggs a special treat at Easter. Many European cultures also have old customs of decorating eggs and giving them as gifts.

So, there ya go heathens & Christians alike. You both played a part in making Easter the stupid commercial egg coloring holiday that it is today. Are you proud of yourself?

Mom, What's second base mean?

OMMFGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG my 10 year old daughter asked me tonight what the "bases" mean. She heard a guy refer to going to second base with a girl and knew from the context it had something to do with sex and asked me what second base meant. I knew I had to choke down the vomit welling up in my throat and do the responsible thing and tell her the truth. I had to be open & honest with her about it so she would always feel comfortable talking to me about things. It would have been so much easier to tell her OMFG They are talking about baseball so STFU and go to your room right now!!

After I told her what second base is then she wants to know what all the other bases are. OMFG JUST SHOOT ME IN THE FACE RIGHT PHUCKING NOW!!!

I think I had 7 hot flashes in a matter of 5 minutes and almost puked twice. All this with my 9 year old son listening on.

This is what I told her. OMFG I am getting sick to my stomach just thinking about it.

I told her first base is kissing, second base is feeling a girls boobs, 3rd base is feeling on each other's private parts through your clothes and 4th base is a.k.a home run or SEX.

I almost defecated just typing that.

In funnier news, my kids like to play the trust game... You know that game they play at team building seminars for work where you stand in front of someone and you let yourself fall back towards them and you "trust" them to catch you. Yeah, that one. My DS9 just let me DD10 FALL. He intentionally let her hit the ground when she fell back towards him. It would be sad if it wasn't so phucking funny. I know I SUCK!! But I laugh my ass off when ppl fall down. Even if it's an old person and they get hurt it makes me laugh HARD. Not much ever makes me LOL but ppl falling down does it for me.

How is your day going? Anything horrible or funny happen to you today?

Randon Scattered Thoughts

I brought this up on Twitter already so if you tweeted with me about it just STFU skip this paragraph and keep on reading. =)

My dad flew to Texas last month to visit my brother and he was bugging me to look up online how big a carry on bag can be so he would know if his suitcase was small enough to be considered a carry on bag. I told him "Just check the bag and don't worry about it" And he proceeded to tell me "NO" he wasn't going to check the bag because it cost $25 EACH WAY to check a bag. I told him he must have lost his mind because I use to work for American Airlines and I had to answer luggage questions all the time and that you can have 2 checked bags as long as they are under 50 pounds and that heavy bags or more than 2 bags and you had to pay. He told me "UM LOOK IT UP ON YOUR GOOGLE" SO I looked it up on my Google and sure enough OMFG you have to phucking PAY MONEY for your checked bags! You don't even get ONE free MF'ing checked bag. The first bag is $25 EACH GD WAY and the second bag is even more at $35 EACH WAY!

I understand when the airlines stopped serving food on short flights to save weight on flights and save money for the airline, but when ppl travel they are going to have phucking luggage!! And that fee is for EACH GAWD DAYUM WAY not just a one time charge for a round trip flight. I couldn't believe it. SO  he has a suitcase that fell with the dimensions that carry on bags can be but when he flew American Eagle, the tiny little bitty jet, none of the bags would fit inside the cabin in the overhead compartments so they "comped" everybody's bag to be checked and put under the plane.

Now there is one overhead compartment over every 3 seats. The overhead bin is big enough to hold one suitcase and maybe a small duffle bag. SO if 3 ppl need to put a suitcase up there and there's only room for 1, then what? If everybody is carrying their shit ON now since checking costs money, how are they fitting all those bags inside the cabin? It makes me phucking sick that airlines have resorted to such bullshittery!


I am curious. I read the MOMLOGIC blog and they post articles about anything and everything you can think of. A wide variety of topics and they usually post between 6 and 12 articles a day. They are usually pretty quick to post about something that is going on in the news or a current event that's happening in real time. HOWEVER, not once have they posted ANYTHING about the scandal involving and the pedophile's book. I understand it happened fast and it only lasted a day before amazon finally pulled the book, but not once did MOMLOGIC post anything about it. It brings up the subject of other child molester's that have E-books on Amazon's self published department, but still NADA, NOTHING. They must have some financial interest in not posting something about Amazon in a negative light. They must have some kind of AD ass kissing sitution going on. I decided to go ahead and NOT spend my Christmas money with Amazon. Just their early defense of the book and refusing to pull it gave me a bad taste in my mouth. I may eventually go back to using Amazon, but not now. Not this year.

Selfish people who always want a bunch of something for nothing can suck it. My local FREECYCLE message board is a joke. It's all people asking for shit and never giving stuff away and today the same lady posted 9 DIFFERENT POSTS asking for different stuff from furniture for her grown daughter, to maternity clothes for herself and space heaters. NINE different posts asking for stuff. I doubt anybody is going to give her jack shit. She just decided to post her Christmas list on Freecycle and figured if she asked for enough shit she might get SOMETHING.

My kids wake up every day and never know what they want to eat for breakfast. We keep the same kinds of stuff in the house for breakfast and yet every day they ask what we have. Most days they end up both asking for something that is not even breakfast food. My son wanted a chicken pot pie this morning. My daughter wanted breaded cheese bites. Do your kids eat weird stuff? My son likes to eat peanut butter with corn dogs. He once made a scrambled egg sandwich out of pancakes.

I told you it was random scattered thoughts but you didn't believe me.

Co-sleeping can suck it.

This is something I saw on MOMLOGIC today and wanted to share it with you basically because I totally agree with this entire article. Everything about NOT co-sleeping and having my own bed to myself, I agree with. I have heard all the fluff promoting co-sleeping but then you don't hear those same parents tell you 3 or 4 years later that they have 2 or 3 toddlers taking over their bed and they have to sneak around in odd rooms to try to catch an intimate moment with the spouse. I never had kids in my bed. My kids were always put in thier own crib from birth and they all slept well and I slept well and didn't wake up with elbows and knees in my ribs or wet pissy sheets from diaper leaks, etc. Here is the article.

When my daughter was born, we bought a co-sleeper. She hated it. She also hated the Moses basket and the swing. For a few short nights, we had her sleeping between us, all swaddled up. But I was paranoid. They say the rule for sleeping with your baby means getting rid of fluffy pillows and blankets. I need my comforter, and I feared her suffocating. I'm a light sleeper, so I knew I wouldn't squish her, yet what if my husband rolled over on her? Her crying wouldn't even wake him. But above all of that, I feared having a child in our bed each and every night for years to come.

I decided our bed was our bed. It's a place for my husband and me to be intimate, to relax and decompress and to escape from the world -- even the baby. Our bed is our sanctuary, and we are allowed one room not totally taken over by baby. There was a reason we bought my daughter a crib: so she would have her own bed.

Friends in favor of attachment parenting or cosleeping had told me horror story after horror story about how they couldn't get their toddler out of their bed; how their husbands now slept in guest rooms. I couldn't help but wonder, how do they have sex? So now their husbands were in another room and their baby was with them? What effect was that having on their marriage? Not a good one: Most people complained of distance and lack of intimacy, not to mention all that money wasted on a cute crib and its bedding.

At four weeks old, my daughter left the co-sleeper for the crib. I found that she needed to be in her own room because every moan and noise was waking me. With her in her own room, I could relax and sleep and be awakened only by crying, not by all of her moans and coos. I also found it allowed my husband and me time together. After the baby came, I felt like we were passing ships in the night. I felt so distanced from him. And someone sleeping between us would only further the wedge.

I also knew that getting my daughter used to her own bed at four weeks old was going to be easier than any other time. Every morning, we bring our daughter into our bed for twenty minutes to cuddle and play. But that is all she gets. And she is one of the best sleepers I know -- most likely because she gets to sprawl out in her own cozy bed.

Everybody's Boycotting Amazon

I have heard the story of the Pedophiles Guide Book being sold in the self-published department of in the Kindle version, an E-book. I think it is disgusting. I am SHOCKED that Amazon doesn't screen it's books better for trash like that. Censorship MY ASS. Choosing to not sell a horrible book about molesting children is not censorship, it is prudent business practices.

I am not one to boycott anybody. I don't boycott Nestle. I never will. I buy the shit out of Stouffers and Nestle products. But I think I am going to try to make a little bit of a difference in the bottom line over at Amazon and not do all my Christmas shopping through them like I usually do. I usually spend over a grand every November/December using mainly Amazon. If everybody who is incensed by this perverted sick ass book will NOT spend any money with Amazon, they may see a difference in their sales numbers and realize that allowing the sale of that 4 dollar piece of shit book is not worth all the money they are losing from moms and dads who refuse to spend a dime with them until they remove that piece of trash PEDOPHILES Guide Book.

I am not going to post links to the book on my blog. I don't want to be linked to it in any way on here. I won't even post the real whole title of the book because if anybody does a search for it WANTING the book, I don't want those phuckers to end up on my blog.

To me, pedophiles are WORSE than rapists and WORSE than murderers. Anybody who would sexually abuse a child deserves TO DIE in my opinion. And I don't care if you have a cousin who was charged with unlawful sexual abuse of a minor and she happened to be 15 and not 7, sexual abuse of a child is sexual abuse of a child. I think they should all get the death penalty, but while they are waiting for the death to happen they have to be housed in a section of the prison with big burly men who HATE child molesters. They deserve to get butt raped with broom handles and baseball bats for years. They deserve to get the shit beat out of them every day for years. And then when they have suffered beyond all human suffering, then we should electrocute them. No lethal injection. That's too humane. I say fry the muther phuckers.

I feel strongly about perverts who sexually abuse kids, people who look at child porn and people who engage in sex with minors of any age. They are a waste of human space and don't deserve to breathe air.

But there's not a LOT I can do to prevent sexual abuse against children. I can decide who I spend my money with. And until that book is gone, it won't be with Amazon. If they never remove the book then I won't ever go back to buying anything from them. That's how strongly I feel about this particular issue.

For my Homeschool friends & NON homeschool friends and whoever just accidentally found my blog today.

Those of you who read me that are homeschool moms I just wanted to let you know I listed 2 sets of complete CALVERT 5th grade curriculum on EBay today as well as a parent set of textbooks for the 5th grade. If you want to look at them or pass them onto one of your homeschool friends you can find the 5th grade complete curriculum here and the 5th grade parent set here.

For my non -homeschool friends I can update you on what I did ALL WEEKEND LONG. I watched DVDs of HOUSE. The TV series about doctors. They try to diagnose hard to diagnose patients and the like to argue alot and Dr. House is just an ASSHOLE and I think I love him!! I am halfway through season 4 now. I skipped the whole first season because my local Blockbuster store didn't have it for some reason. I watched most of season 2, I think I missed one disc of season 2. I saw all but one disc of season 3, and now I have all 4 discs of season 4. I am going to get season 5 using my Blockbuster by mail DVD program.

I saw a part of an episode of HOUSE on TV awhile back and didn't like it right away because of what an ASSHOLE Dr.House was. I watched for about 10 minutes then just changed it. Well not too long ago some episodes of it came on satellite (repeats) and my kids were watching it so I just watched it half ass out of the corner of my eye and after about 2 episodes I was very interested. It was a HOUSE marathon I guess because we saw about 3 or 4 episodes in a row. That's when I decided I was going to veg out on HOUSE DVDs.

I didn't even sew anything today. I just watched house DVDs. Well, I did get 3 things listed on EBay and ran some errands with/for my dad.

So that's what I have been up to. And what am I going to be doing tonight with no kids around you ask? OH I dunno WATCHING MORE HOUSE I suppose. I am going to knock out these 2 more discs I have of it so I can take them all back when I go to Blockbuster tomorrow. Tomorrow is TUESDAY people. New release day at Blockbuster. If you are a serial killer stalking me and want to murder me you can find me at Blockbuster tomorrow between 10 and 10:30. =)

That's a picture of David Berkowitz by the way also known as SON OF SAM the serial killer. I think he stalked me for a little while. I was too quick and too cunning for him. I eluded him. Then he got caught before he could kill me.

What's Up Phuckers?

I was reading one of the blogs I follow in My Google Reader, RED SHOE CHRONICLES and he posted a link to a GPS cell phone tracker that you put a cell phone number into and it tracks the location of the phone. I wanted to share it with you just in case there is someone you want to track. Don't blame me if it tracks your husband's cell phone and finds him somewhere he's not suppose to be. I am just sharing the technology with you.

Also, I am curious... How many of you have actually removed all those extra mystery keys from your key chain that you don't know what they go to? I have 4 mystery keys on my key chain and I hold onto them just in case I come across that lock I need a key to. I think the minute I take them off and get rid of them that I am going to need one of them. Even though I haven't needed one of them for the last 5 years. I am thinking about taking them off and just keeping them in a baggie in my desk drawer or in the kitchen junk drawer. That way they're not GONE but they're not on my key chain either. I already have a bunch of those key chain reward cards for like blockbuster and Kroger. The member cards you have them scan when you go in to buy something. I have about 7 or 8 of those things on my key chain. So I don't need a bunch of extra mystery keys. I think you talked me into removing them, thanks.

My weekend is quiet and lonely. Well, not really lonely. My kids are at their dad's house for the weekend. I watched an entire DVD of House season 3 (5 episodes) yesterday with no breaks and no interruptions. However, I did get very scared yesterday evening in here all alone. I heard a noise at the back of the house that sounded like a creaking noise my daughter's room door makes when it is opened. I know I heard the noise and immediately thought OMFG THERE'S A SERIAL KILLER IN MY PHUCKING HOUSE!! I even used the front bathroom to avoid walking to the back of the house to my bathroom. I avoided going to bed for as long as I could but fell asleep watching TV in the living room. When I woke up from my cat nap I walked back to my bedroom FAST and hurried up and shut and locked my bedroom door. I figured if the serial killer was hiding in my daughter's room waiting to butcher me that he would get tired of waiting and leave before morning. I woke up ALIVE and there doesn't seem to be any serial killers in my house. But it does go to show you that watching a bunch of episodes of I Survived and hearing people talk about home invasions can make you very paranoid. I even have a gun safe with guns in it in my house but I am scared of the guns so I don't ever touch them. I guess if someone was kicking in my front door I would work up the nerve to go get a gun and shoot the phucker breaking in my house. I hope I never have to find out.

I have 3 more DVDs of HOUSE I plan to watch this weekend while I have no chillens around. I should be sewing and making tote bags, but I am feeling more lazy and TV oriented. =)

But if you want a tote bag, feel free to go get one. (My Etsy Shop)

Ok, phuckers, go forth and multiply. Or Twitter. Or watch TV. Whatever you want to do. Go do it. Thanks for stopping by my little ole blog.

Obama's GREAT huh?

I was reading one of the blogs in my Google reader yesterday MOMOTICS.COM and this is a post she wrote and how I responded to it. You may agree with her, you may agree with me, or you may be middle of the road and agree with some from both sides, which is where I land. Read the blog and response below and let me know what you think. Let me start off by telling you that I use to consider myself a DEMOCRAT and I voted for OBAMA. Her post is about all the good things OBAMA has done since he has been in office/defending OBAMA so I thought I would counter it with some of the bad things he has done. Let’s give both sides of the story right? Fair is fair! I no longer call myself a Democrat nor do I call myself a Republican. I vote on issues now not on party affiliation. This blog post may lose me blog followers and may even lose me Twitter followers but you know how I feel about that... If you don't wanna follow me because my opinion is different than yours SO BE IT. I won't lose sleep over losing one follower or even two.



Now you should make a big long list of all the things he has done wrong and a list of his obvious mistakes. In politics it's always better to be fair to both sides right?  How about that our deficit is bigger than it's ever been? The US National Debt increases at over $4 billion dollars a day.I actually voted for Obama so I had very high hopes for him but along with all of the good things he has done, he has done just as many bad things/bad decisions/wrong moves. They way he bows down to foreign heads of state and apologizes for the US like we have done something wrong. He is not a strong leader. Here's a few more…

He wants to close Gitmo...he feels we should have sympathy for terrorits and/or terrorist suspects

He wants American tax dollars to pay for abortions in other countries

He wants American tax dollars to pay for health insurance for children of illegals

He keeps picking people who did not pay their taxes to have a position within his administration

He promised the American people that they would be able to read bills before they are voted on...they stim-u-less passed and we were unable to read it first. He breaks his promises.

He lifted the ban for partial birth abortion

A few more bad things he has done:

Janet Napolitano- enough said.

Dribbling out the Stimulus Bill money very very slowly to his close political cronies only. So the bill is $787 Billion down a rathole with no impact whatsoever.

Khalid Sheik Mohammad will be tried in Manhattan. Such a travesty of justice to give him access to a civilian Federal Court

Closing Gitmo will turn out to be a hugely costly mistake. It's a 15 minute Public Relations victory for Obama -- a speech moment -- that will create huge complications, hazards, costs, and new problems that just did not have to be there.

John Brennan is not up to par to do his job as National Security Advisor to the President. He's an excuse maker. He feels that doing nothing is the highest form of doing. He favors the passive approach because he thinks it makes him appear more professional. Actually it makes him appear to be a toady toad of the Politically Correct Liberals who never want to take strong steps to catch and punish terrorists (the poor darlings, probably need some multi-culti counselling, and to be better understood, and given more rights). Fire Brennan, put Storm'in Norman Shwartzkoff in -- then you would get some national security -- that same day -- before the sun went down, the USA would be 50% safer.

Recently, Barack Obama has been urging us to negotiate with the terrorists, to sit down and have a heart to heart talk with the Islamic Jihad and the nations that sponsor such terrorism.

AND NOW FOR ANOTHER OPINION ON IT: Here’s an article by Mort Zuckerman for The Daily Beast on some other issues with Obama:

Obama punted on the economy and reversed the fortunes of the Democrats in 365 days.

He’s misjudged the character of the country in his whole approach. There’s the saying, “It’s the economy, stupid.” He didn’t get it. He was determined somehow or other to adopt a whole new agenda. He didn’t address the main issue.

This health-care plan is going to be a fiscal disaster for the country. Most of the country wanted to deal with costs, not expansion of coverage. This is going to raise costs dramatically.

In the campaign, he said he would change politics as usual. He did change them. It’s now worse than it was. I’ve now seen the kind of buying off of politicians that I’ve never seen before. It’s politically corrupt and it’s starting at the top. It’s revolting.

Five states got deals on health care—one of them was Harry Reid’s. It is disgusting, just disgusting. I’ve never seen anything like it. The unions just got them to drop the tax on Cadillac plans in the health-care bill. It was pure union politics. They just went along with it. It’s a bizarre form of political corruption. It’s bribery. I suppose they could say, that’s the system. He was supposed to change it or try to change it.

Even that is not the worst part. He could have said, “I know. I promised these things, but let me try to do them one at a time.” You want to deal with health care? Fine. Issue No. 1 with health care was the cost. You know I think it was 37 percent or 33 who were worried about coverage. Fine, I wrote an editorial to this effect. Focus on cost-containment first. But he’s trying to boil the ocean, trying to do too much. This is not leadership. Obama’s ability to connect with voters is what launched him. But what has surprised me is how he has failed to connect with the voters since he’s been in office. He’s had so much overexposure. You have to be selective. He was doing five Sunday shows. How many press conferences? And now people stop listening to him. The fact is he had 49.5 million listeners to first speech on the economy. On Medicare, he had 24 million. He’s lost his audience. He has not rallied public opinion. He has plunged in the polls more than any other political figure since we’ve been using polls. He’s done everything wrong. Well, not everything, but the major things.

I don’t consider it a triumph. I consider it a disaster.

One business leader said to me, “In the Clinton administration, the policy people were at the center, and the political people were on the sideline. In the Obama administration, the political people are at the center, and the policy people are on the sidelines.”

I’m very disappointed. We endorsed him. I voted for him. I supported him publicly and privately.

I hope there are changes. I think he’s already laid in huge problems for the country. The fiscal program was a disaster. You have to get the money as quickly as possible into the economy. They didn’t do that. By end of the first year, only one-third of the money was spent. Why is that?

He should have jammed a stimulus plan into Congress and said, “This is it. No changes. Don’t give me that bullshit. We have a national emergency.” Instead they turned it over to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi who can run circles around him.

It’s very sad. It’s really sad.

He’s improved America’s image in the world. He absolutely did. But you have to translate that into something. Let me tell you what a major leader said to me recently. “We are convinced,” he said, “that he is not strong enough to confront his enemy. We are concerned,” he said “that he is not strong to support his friends.”

The political leadership of the world is very, very dismayed. He better turn it around. The Democrats are going to get killed in this election. Jesus, looks what’s happening in Massachusetts.

It’s really interesting because he had brilliant, brilliant political instincts during the campaign. I don’t know what has happened to them. His appointments present somebody who has a lot to learn about how government works. He better get some very talented businesspeople who know how to implement things. It’s unbelievable. Everybody says so. You can’t believe how dismayed people are. That’s why he’s plunging in the polls.

I can’t predict things two years from now, but if he continues on the downward spiral he is on, he won’t be reelected. In the meantime, the Democrats have recreated the Republican Party. And when I say Democrats, I mean the Obama administration. In the generic vote, the Democrats were ahead something like 52 to 30. They are now behind the Republicans 48 to 44 in the last poll. Nobody has ever seen anything that dramatic.

2 years ago I considered myself a DEMOCRAT. I no longer do. I don’t consider myself a Republican either. I am middle of the road now and only vote for someone based on what their stance on issues are and not just voting for them because they are Democrat or Republican. There was a time I would vote all across the board Democrat but not anymore. OBAMA changed that for me.

And unfortunately our states electoral votes didn’t even go to Obama so my vote for him really made no difference getting him elected. That’s my peace of mind now that things have turned out so differently than I ever expected.

One of the other blogs I follow RED SHOES CHRONICLES posted a very good political post yesterday. It's worth the read.  It descibes how/why I went from a Democrat to an Independent perfectly.

Random Ramblings Bishes. What's New?

I got my kids up this morning OMG GET THE PHUCK UP!! like I always do. Let them MAKE THEM get dressed and come into the living room where I am always HURRY THE PHUCK UP  patiently waiting for them. Asked them what they wanted for breakfast and DS said EGGS BITCH "Toaster Strudel" and DD said "I dunno BECAUSE I'M SO EMO just make me something" So I made DS his Toaster Strudel and made DD some bacon slices. I buy the thin pre-cooked OMG IT COSTS HOW MUCH? ARE YOU PHUCKING CRAZY? bacon you just heat up in the microwave so it took me 37 seconds TOO LONG to make her 5 thin slices of bacon, which is how much I usually give her.

We were about to get in the car to leave to go to the school to drop them off GTFO OF MY CAR and DD decides to ask me if she can go back in and eat some more "have a snack" because she's still hungry. I told her "Um, ARE YOU GAWD DAYUM KIDDING ME KID STFU AND GET IN THE CAR no. You can eat the school breakfast once you get to school" They serve breakfast at school and both kids have enough money on their lunch accounts they can MOVE TO COSTA RICA eat breakfast or lunch any day of the week and have plenty of money left FOR GAMBLING.

I didn't go back in the house an re-feed her because I'M A PHUCKING BITCH MEAN MOM LIKE THAT then that would have made DS not get to the school in a time frame that he considers 'early'. They both like to be ANNOYING LITTLE FUCKERS there about 30 minutes before the bell rings so they can chit chat with their friends, get their homework out, get their shit together TALK SHIT ABOUT MOMMY, talk to the teacher, etc. So I drop them off about 7:45 for a bell that rings at 8:15.

DD said she thought it was 'too late' to go into the cafeteria and have the school breakfast since they only had 30 GD minutes before school started. DS even said he would go with her and have breakfast too so she wouldn't have to do it by herself. (He's always sweet like that. She would have told him to phuck off if he had asked her to go with him)

SO, I'm not sure if the kids ended up having school breakfast or not. I doubt it. DD probably just decided to BE HER NORMAL STUBBORN ASS SELF let her stomach growl until lunch time 5 hours from now. I dont' even know why I am telling you this random useless bullshit information. I guess that's what blogggers do. Talk about shit. Stuff.

I read a blog yesterday where someone was talking about going to acupuncture OMFG ARE YOU SERIOUS PPL ACTUALLY DO THIS SHIT?. I subsequently tweeted that I think acupuncture is a big ole crock of shit. That I rank it as hokey pokey PHUCKING IDIOTIC and think it is about the same level of stupid as hypnosis. That's my opinion of it. If you don't like it, you can SUCK IT SUCK BALLS. Or not.

I know there are people out there that think you have this energy CHI flowing through you and to get it back straight you have to tap little microscopic needles at key points along your body I CAN'T SAY THAT WITHOUT GIGGLING IT'S SO STUPID. I also know that people believe if you arrange your furniture in a certain way in your house brings you good look and makes your energy BOWELS flow properly too. CROCK. I know some ppl think a person can take another person and hypnotize them and make them QUACK LIKE A CHICKEN say and do things against their will and that they can use it to help DRAIN PEOPLE OF HARD EARNED MONEY cure people of bad habits. I say this... Why don't you poke another pin in your voodoo doll of me and suck a sack of balls. It's a bunch of shit and just another way for people to find to get other people to blow their hard earned money.

Some guy tweeted me that "The Flat Earth Society lives" As if because I don't think acupuncture is real or worthy of anything that I must also still think the Earth is flat PHUCK YOU HOMEY. That's just a case of someone IDIOT trying to degrade the other person in order to try to make themselves seem right on a subject. That's how the politicians do to each other. Talk shit and untruths about the other side in order to possibly boost their position. It doesn't work. It just makes you look like a desperate douche who is reaching for something shitty to say because you know you suck balls AND ARE WRONG.

The guy wasn't even one of my followers. Which means he is sitting around doing SEARCHES for people tweeting the word acupuncture. He SUCKS BALLS sells acupuncture supplies so he probably mainly uses his tweet searches to try to FIND MINOR GIRLS sell products to people but he is also coming across people saying things about acupuncture and he is trying to pick arguments with them since they disagree with him.

I follow a lady who I saw one day kept tweeting people back about breast-feeding and I looked at her page and looked at their page and it appeared she was tweeting with a LOT of ppl she wasn't even following and they were all tweets where someone was talking about NOT breast-feeding or that they were bottle feeders LIKE ME and she was being argumentative to every one of them. She was doing SEARCHES for the word breast-feeding, then picking fights with people who disagreed with her. If she saw any tweets where someone was anti-breast-feeding she confronted them. Someone tweeted that they were disturbed because she saw a kid breast-feeding in public that looked like they were 4 years old, a BIG kid. And the lady picking fights started tweeting about how CUTE it is for 4 year olds to breast feed OMFG ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT HERE?. I have to just IGNORE ppl like that. I am all for a good argument but you can't deal with fanatics on any subject.

I am very disappointed in myself this year that I did not have my husband get down all my Christmas stuff before he left back for out of town this past Thursday. I always put up my Christmas decorations the day after Halloween. I like to have my Christmas spirit going around here for 2 months instead of one. But I let him leave town and forgot to have him get them down from in the top of his shop stuffed in the back of a wall storage thing that I can't get into. So now I have to wait until he gets home a week from this Thursday and get them down half way into November. NOT GOOD!! It's really cutting down on my Christmas time!!
The kids are use to helping me decorate for Christmas right after Halloween. I started to be lazy and just say PHUCK IT and not even get out all the Christmas stuff this year but the kids really want me to. They love having the house all decorated up and festive. I use to put up 3 different trees inside the house, but since I have taken over the dining room with my sewing and stacks of fabric I only have room for 2 trees this year. They both go in the living room. One is HUGE 8 foot and goes all the way to the floor. You can't get presents underneath it. And the other one is a standard 6 foot tree with room under it for presents. I know most people wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate for Xmas but I am not MOST PPL. If we have not established that yet, we have bigger issues.

When do you decorate for Christmas? Do you even decorate? And what do you think about acupuncture and hypnosis?

Happy Halloween Phuckers!!

HATE do not like Halloween. I never liked Halloween as a kid. I went trick or treating until I was about 8 or 9 but once my mom and dad got divorced I never remember trick or treating after that. So my Halloween fun SUCKED BALLS was cut way short, like everything else in my childhood. But that's a whole other post for another day. Halloween....

Our town/county's ball sucking Mayor CHANGES Halloween here almost every year. This year of course, it falls on a Sunday (Church day folks- we're in the bible belt) so the phuckers switched official trick or treating to Saturday night fromn 5 to 8:30. (I am not taking my kids to people's house at 5 in the evening when everybody is eating dinner) It was posted in the paper. If you didn't read the paper (like me) there was no way for you to know the day had been changed. Someone suggested it might be changed here so I called the town newspaper to ask them what day trick or treating was on, sure enough, SATURDAY.

It has fallen on a Friday night before and they switched it to Saturday night so that people didn't have to choose between trick or treating and local high school football. High school football is a big deal here. Not quite as fanatical as it was when I lived in Texas. Gawd dayum the high school football there is sacred and everybody goes to the games on Friday nights. It's redonculous.

But I had a point. Our town changed the phucking holiday to suit itself. The phuckers never asked the town people if we wanted Halloween changed to a different day, they just did it.

SO needless to say I wasn't thrilled about going trick or treating last night. I even offered my Twitter friends to come take the kids trick or treating for me and offered to pay $50 for it. Hell, that's $25 an hour. Top pay for around here!

I asked my oldest son to go with me to take the kids trick or treating so that I didn't have to ride through the subdivision in the dark with the kids by myself. (My husband is out of town working 3 weeks out of the month) We always go to the same subdivision in town as does half the rest of the people in town. It is a very busy, very crowded area. It has streets lined up one after the other for only about 6 or 7 streets. It only takes about an hour & a half to make your way through all the streets. My kids bumped into quite a few kids they know and even one redneck neighbor girl that lives right around the corner from us. (She went dressed up in camo as a 'redneck")

See I let the kids out of the car going house to house and I creep along the street in my car. (That's how everybody does it down there) But if there's a big gap in the houses where there's no lights on the porch for 5 or 6 houses in a row the kids get in the car and I ride them down to the next house with a light on. It saves time and energy.

My son started out the afternoon telling me he didn't even want to go trick or treating. He didn't want to put on his costume that he had picked and he didn't even wanna go. I made him get his costume on and made him go. I wasn't going to let his little attitude ruin it for his sister. I told him he would not be allowed to trick or treat without a costume on so if he didn't get dressed in his costume he was going to sit in the car and ride along while his sister went house to house getting candy. He decided to go along with the program.

The first 2 streets he complained that the costume was making him hot OMG STFU and that his legs were tired. I wanted to shoot myself in the face. I told him to just keep going and after the second street he finally STFU quit complaining and just trick or treated. It didn't seem much fun for them and they didn't really get a lot of candy FOR ME. Not like what I use to get as a kid when I went and came back with a heavy ass bag full of candy. You go to each house now and each house gives you one little tiny piece of gum or candy so it never really adds up.

Half the candy they get, they don't like and are trying to trade each other for something they do like or they are trying to give it to me. They don't get a lot of GOOD candy so I am not going to pilfer the little bit of candy they do get.

Back when my 25 year old use to trick or treat (In the late 80's early 90's) he use to get a lot of candy and we would be able to pilfer his candy after he went to sleep without him even noticing. LOL. I'm just kidding. YOU PHUCKING LIAR I wouldn't do that. =)

Here's a few pictures of the kids' costumes this year. DD made her own and DS was Snake Eyes off G.I Joe. He didn't wear the hood or mask.
