The ELEPHANT in the room. OPTICS - MAGA dog whistle alert

SO because tRump ABUSED the National Guard by sicking them on peaceful protestors and wanting to send the Army in for BLM protests, NOW they are worried about "optics".

BULLSHIT. They don't want people seeing National Guard dealing with WHITE vigilantes.

Sund told the Post that House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving was concerned with the "optics" of declaring an emergency ahead of the protests and rejected a National Guard presence. He says Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger recommended that he informally request the Guard to be ready in case it was needed to maintain security.

12 Year Old HOLDS UP GAS STATION with a GUN. Michigan



Reading "If God Is Love, Don't Be A Jerk" by John Pavlovitz

I've been out of "box church" for a long time.

I still respect people who go and find the new Pope refreshing in his sincerity.

Because so much of the politics seem entangled in the Church, it's hard for me to get reattached.

In the past, I've gone back to listen to what God has for me and done my best to ignore the rest.

This book is challenging me to think exactly what my view of God is.

My hope is by the end of it, I will figure out where I belong in the Church world.

Anyone else read this book?

If so, did you get any good insights?

Never really thought about Meghan Trainor before, but I like this song.

No Excuses



Lyrics
What you sippin' on that got you talking crazy?
Lookin' at me sideways, always coming at me
Why you, why you acting hard when you just a baby?
Boy, I keep it real with you, but you trying to play me
Have you lost your mind?
Open up your eyes
Huh!
You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) There ain't no excuses, excuses, babe
(Someone else) Your mama raised you better than that, huh!
What you sippin' on that got you talking crazy?
Lookin' at me sideways, always coming at me
Why you, why you acting like you never met a lady?
I don't disrespect you, don't you disrespect me
Have you lost your mind? (lost your mind)
Open up your eyes
Huh!
You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) There ain't no excuses, excuses, babe
(Someone else) Your mama raised you better than that, huh!
'Cause your mama raised you better than that
'Cause your mama raised you better than that
Have you lost your mind?
Open up your eyes (your eyes)
Huh!
You must have confused me, confused me with
(Someone else) There ain't no excuses, excuses, babe (no excuses, no, no)
(Someone else) Your mama raised you better than that, huh! (how she raise you?)
You must have confused me, confused me with
Your mama raised you better than, better than that
There ain't no excuses, excuses, babe
'Cause your mama raised you better than that, huh! (she raised you better than that)

Help. My son is drinking the kool-aide. He thinks DEMS stole his vote.

He says that his wife's vote counted, but his didn't that he checked and he wasn't registered, and it shows he did not vote.

So I asked him, "Who is it who wants to restrict voting rights?"

"Oh, so you have to show an ID." He said dismissively.

"And in states where people have to wait hours to vote, and it's dangerously hot, who put in legislation to prevent people from bring water to voters in line?"

The DEMOCRATS he said.


NO NO NO NO Never the DEMS. But he insists.


So my southern friends, can you help me find the legislation and the backers of these horrible bills? I might find them first, but in case he thinks I am lying.... or misinformed by the main stream media.




What does a nosey pepper do?

It gets jalapeño business.


Anyone heard if VISION FOR A JUST AMERICA is a scam operation?

Since it came into Minnesota from Alabama, I am a bit skeptical that it is legit. It sounds like it could be Southern Poverty Law Center, but it could be referring to Jeffersonian or Federalist ideals as well.

Down south there have been large voter purges based on common names or alias of felons, ie: any John Smith, Maryia Jones or Pedro Hernandez more likely.

The spelling of the first name on my "survey" possibly suggests non-white as it is an off spelling of a common name. So it makes me think they are targeting African American names.



If other people get misdirects to their address feel free to use this format and substitute your details for my blanked or XX'd out ones. My main concern is that one of the names that popped up is an elderly person who is probably in a nursing home and they have already been targeted by scammers and had their party affiliation switched in some areas.

Also people have reported being mysteriously dropped from their registered status after years of voting from the same residence in the same precinct within weeks of actual vote day. I think I saw one person had checked within 2 weeks of voting and was good, then showed up to vote and was out of the system somehow.





I just emailed - [email protected]

I got a misdirected "SURVEY" from Vision For A Just America to my address:

XXX XXth Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55407-2314



Addressee is: XXXXX A Martin.

There is a Participant Number assigned:

The survey arrived from Montgomery, AL Prepaid Postage Permit #



I have lived here since May 1995 and during all those years no one named XXXXX A Martin has ever lived at this residence. We own this house and there are no one but our family who have ever lived here. We are XXXXXX, XXXXXX and XXXXXX/XXX.



I did a Google search for possible misdirects. See below **



The first is my biggest concern since canvassers are changing voting registrations in nursing homes and this person is very likely a target of such a scam. Changing her voting address through a survey is another possibility. It could be an innocent, honest mistake, but if not, it’s better your office knows something is happening before many people are defrauded.



** XXXXX G Martin who lives at XXXXX Street, Mpls 55430

(May be deceased – Age 103 born Jan 1919)



XXXXX C Martin (Born 1985) lives at XXXX XXth, Mpls 55407

(Closest match)



Others:

XXXXX Martin

Address Hopkins, MN 55343



XXXXX Martin

Address Saint Paul, MN 55106



XXXXX Martin

Address CIRCLE PINES, MN 55014





I checked my voter registration online and it looks good today. My husband’s as well, but if this person is somehow assigned to our address and we are dropped… that could be a problem as I regularly vote and work 40 hours a week during regular business hours.



Your assistance in this matter is much appreciated.



Sincerely,



Grief makes families do stupid stuff.

My Aunt on my Mother's side recently passed away.

She was a wonderful person who opened her home to so many of the family for so many reasons. She was in ill health for a long time and her DIL was caring for her and her own 84 year old Mother.

My Sister sent flowers on a monthly basis and was asked to stop as this was "too much" for the DIL. Even flower cards were "too much" so my Sister complied even though our Aunt said on every occasion that these flowers made her feel loved and that she did not get any direct contact like that from other family members.

My Aunt had a stroke and while in the hospital they decided she needed a pace maker. She wanted to decline. She wanted to die. She wanted to go home to Heaven.

She got a pace maker and the DIL continued to feel the stress. It's been 3-4 months and Hospice stepped in and the DIL was under less stress. I don't know how long Hospice was involved, but my Sister still cared and kept in contact, speaking twice to my Aunt recently.

For my Sister's love and care, she has been told she is banned from the funeral and is not to send flowers. Not only that she is supposedly overstepped the "real" family's grief when she found out on my Aunt's facebook page that she passed by saying my Aunt passed away prayers etc.... Because supposedly it is the right/responsibility of the "real" family to do that FIRST.

Now it wasn't the DIL who banned my Sister, but my older cousin interceding on her behalf.

Now I want to go to the funeral and just glare at them, put some roses on the casket for myself and my sister and if they try to turn ME away, throw the shame bomb at them for their non-Christian behavior. I won't, but visualizing doing crazy theatrical stuff is a way to de-stress so I don't have to do stupid stuff.

Funny thing is my Sister and I had an argument when my Mom passed (we DID get through the funeral, though) and didn't talk to each other for a year. The fact that we got past it and are now closer than ever and I admire and respect her so much I want to go and take care of these idiots on her behalf is VERY ironic.

There are SO MANY SKELETONS in our family closet that I COULD make the entire family suffer for years and years if I so chose.

But that wouldn't be very nice or Christian of me.

Instead, I am leaving it up to God to teach these yokels the error of their ways and Karma is a real bitch. They think their lives so far have been hard?

Anyone who thinks they have the right to ban another family member from a funeral for simply loving and expressing that love to the person deceased is already on a crazy train and heading for the cliff.

Guess I will just pull up a seat and watch the show.
