Why one woman voted for Trump instead of Hillary

Hillary and her supporters assumed that the women’s vote belonged to her because she had a vagina which is a very sexist assumption. They assumed that American women would want the glass ceiling broken so badly that they would vote for a woman no matter what the content of her character was.They assumed that all women were pro-abortion and that they didn’t care about things like national security or national debt .They thought that American women would believe that the only way to protect the LGBT community and to take care of the black community and minorities was to vote democrat.

…I?m sick and tired of it. I?m sick and tired of these uninformed jackholes telling me that I?m racist, sexist, Islamophobic and homophobic.?They have no basis for those claims. They?re consumed by their emotions. ?Do they?honestly believe Hillary Clinton lost solely because she?s a woman? It?couldn?t?possibly have anything with her being a pathological liar who?s spent her entire life pursuing political power? It had nothing?to do with the fact that America?s?not satisfied with her vision for America? an America with open borders, higher taxes and?more bureaucratic scumbags in D.C. telling us?how to run our lives?

We?re not racist. We?re not sexist. We want people to come into this country legally. That?s not racist.?Progressive leadership in the big, urban cities hasn?t pulled the black community out of poverty. It?s worsened it. Liberalism has failed them. We acknowledge that. We want them to prosper. That?s not racist.?And as for being sexist? All issues are women?s issues. I have no idea why liberals continue to separate them. Do they really believe we only care about vaginas, boobs and killing our offspring? Liberals assumed we (women) would vote for Hillary based on those reasons alone. THAT?S sexist, if you ask me. Women care about the economy. We care about national security. We care about the?almost $20 trillion national debt. We care about the erosion of our freedoms. We care about the future of the Supreme Court. The list goes on and on and on.

Talking to a cynic about religion

538b62eb3f84b3a683af318cfd001c77

My daughter is a cynic and my conversations with her are very entertaining. This morning she said to me, “when one person hears a voice in their head it is called schizophrenia, when multiple people hear voices in their head it is called religion.” The conversation started because of her reaction to a book that she has to read as part of the curriculum she is following. We work at the dining room table and as I type blog posts she constantly interrupts my train of thought to exclaim about something she has just read in the book.

The hero of the book is meant to be an example of a good Christian. The theme of the book so far seems to be to trust in God.The problem my practical and logical daughter has with the character is that he ( and I quote my daughter here ) ” is stupid.” The character has taken trusting in God to extremes in her view.The examples she gave me reminded me of this joke.?

The Miracle of Cokeville

Some places are branded by disaster, by the stories of one horrible day that no one can forget: Oklahoma City, Columbine, and the Twin Towers. What sets Cokeville apart is that the story of its horrible day is about what almost happened but didn’t.

Cokeville Wyoming was the sight of a parent’s worst nightmare on May 16th, 1986 when a mentally disturbed man and his wife entered an elementary school with guns and a homemade gasoline bomb. ?They kept all the children in a single room while positioning themselves in the middle of it, David and Doris Young began a standoff that would last hours.

David Young, a former town Marshall, he had been the tiny towns only police officer in six months during 1979 and when he was fired, he moved to Tucson, Arizona. He and his wife returned to Cokeville in 1986 and carried out their insidious plan.? Young had a manifesto called “Zero-Infiniti”?and proclaimed “this is a revolution!” as he and his wife took an entire generation – over 160 children, teachers, and school staff, he held them to hostage and wouldn’t release them until he was given over 300 million dollars and a personal phone call from the President of the United States.

The heart-stopping events in this remote town ? so remote that in 1986 it wasn’t on some highway maps ? made headlines around the world.

A contest of ideas

Quote from Rowan Atkinson

Quote from Rowan Atkinson

What I love so much about democracy and Freedom of Speech is that we can have an open and honest exchange of ideas. We can debate issues, we can question. We do not have to follow any doctrine blindly and unquestioningly.

Today we do not have to buy anything off the rack, we can customise it to suit us and the same goes with our belief systems.

One size does not fit all and so as we grow we listen and observe, we debate and we reason, constantly re evaluating the beliefs we hold dear. At least that is how it is for the women in my family. My mother was brought up a Catholic and now considers herself a Humanist.

Take all their kids off them

These people are not fit to be parents, it was bad enough they let one kid die, but a second?

If they have anymore kids they should be taken off them permanently, and steps taken to ensure they can’t have anymore. What they are doing is child abuse.

A couple serving probation for the 2009 death of their toddler after they turned to prayer instead of a doctor could face new charges now that another son has died.

Herbert and Catherine Schaible belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that believes in faith healing. They lost their 8-month-old son, Brandon, last week after he suffered from diarrhoea and breathing problems for at least a week, and stopped eating. Four years ago, another son died from bacterial pneumonia.? Read more »
