      I got push notices last night. Late. I was scratching my head because I was late getting home from the office and not one sigh indicated road or ramp closures. No helicopters. No increased police. Nada.

      So now they are going with the 70s playbook. The kids from the public school across the street spent almost as much time in our parochial school due to false flags as they spent in their own classrooms. We were not happy as it meant no breaks and messed with lunch period and we had to double up to make room for them. it got old fast.

    Rewatching Years and Years on hbo max. Pity the creater/writer was consumed with TDS because it paints a dystopian future. It was released in 2019. Trans issues, fake meat, rolling blackouts, ID cards, government over reach. If you can get by the unbridled Trump hate it is pretty good. Especially when you take into account all the negative things are actually on dims wish list.

    This interview is very disturbing!

    • elliesmom says:

      One of the things in the interview that I’ve thought about before- Holding a teaching license, even if you aren’t currently teaching, legally compells you to report any knowledge or suspicions you have of child abuse or neglect to the police. In some states you can limit your reporting to Child Protective Services, but if they fail to act, you’re still on the hook. I’ve had to caution young people who have started a conversation with me, “Promise you won’t tell anyone” that I can’t do that. While I don’t expect Dr. Jill Biden to ever be held accountable legally, if she knew or even suspected what Hunter was allegedly doing with her granddaughter and didn’t report it, she has broken the law. If she has seen or obtained knowledge of Hunter abusing young girls, but she can’t identify the girls, she still needs to report it. The law says “child abuse”, not one of your students being abused. I’m guessing her license is in Deleware where teachers and all other school personnel are mandatory reporters. Not just teachers. It includes the janitor and the cafeteria ladies.

        Does she actually have a teaching license?

        • elliesmom says:

          I don’t know if she still does have a license, but she taught high school English at one time so she has had a license in the past. She eventually moved to teaching in a community college. In some states a community college instructor is subject to the same requirements as a high school teacher. I don’t know about Delaware. The cost of maintaining a license isn’t all that much for the license itself, but there is a cost to the continuing education required. However, Jill Biden kept going to school to get advanced degrees so she had that covered. I maintained my license after I retired until I would have needed to take more courses. I was willing to pay a few bucks a year in case I wanted to do some subbing, but I wasn’t willing to put the time, effort, and money into taking classwork when I hadn’t applied to sub anywhere and still had no plans to.

        When my mother volunteered as librarian she was included. Now she was expected to tell the principle or rector and they filed anything with the city. She often figured it out faster as kids key their guard down when outside the classroom. Much of ours was more neglect or weird situations where one parent had walked and the remaining was overwhelmed and embarrassed to ask for help. But there were a few more serious. Like you, to her dying day, we would run into former students who remembered her fondly. My friends and classmates always said it was because she was always helpful and like kids but never a pushover and never tried to be buddies with students . The rules applied to everyone and she never named names or discussed details at home or elsewhere. I think that also led to more students approaching her. Gossip was no go area. .

    The article says he was suspended, but I am sure they want to fire him. For simply being there, he did nothing illegal. He did not cross barriers or enter the Capitol.

      I get ever-more-convinced that The Swamp sounded the alarm to all ‘good corrupt politicians’ of both sides of the aisle that Trump’s presidency was having an impact on who would be serving and in decision making power positions of all government agencies, making far more likely swamp creatures and their corrupt elected servants would not get the payouts and power they had been enjoying for years. ‘The Steal’ cannot be discussed because it was coordinated, real and obvious – and cannot allow the narrative to foster among the plebes. Hence ‘no evidence of widespread voting fraud’.

      Of course for saying the above I’m a Q-anon cult follower (even though I have no real idea what Qanon stands for or what they believe).

      Whatever. They ‘won’ but I will never forget and never stop telling all the libs I know (who I won’t hang out with anyways now because they are frauds) that they are hollowed out from the fact they know ‘something was fishy’ about the election even though they won’t admit it in their eaten-out black hearts.

    The mental break down occurring in Texas right now is telling and scary as shit. People are FURIOUS that the face diapers are coming down. There will be blood. I am not surprised because I knew this would happen. Fear has killed any type of analytical thought process at all. People WANT to feel taken care of, WANT to feel “special,” WANT to blame others for their problems, WANT to have govt. in charge…my GOD these people are zombies and they want me to give up my brain too. I am scared. Been scared. Not of Covid but of people and their desire to walk into the crematoriums willingly. We have the stupidest and most evil among us making rules that have no relation to reality that hurt us all and they want MORE. I am making list of all stores that will be still demanding face diapers and I will never shop there again. I am burning my mask Tuesday (btw it is mesh and full of holes and no one ever noticed and I barely wore it) and praying for people to wake up maybe more air will stimulate thinking 😦

    Hello everyone!!
    A quick report on Calamity’s birthday celebration. It was delightful! I have never experienced her as being warm and as loving a person as I did yesterday. I gave her a list of suggestions and she gave me one. Oddly enough, our ideas were simpatico. We spent hours at a target store that she loves and I was fully prepared for a tussle over toys that never occurred. In fact, she was so careful, it made me smile. At one point, after she loaded and then unloaded the cart with absolute delight, I asked her if she liked shopping. She said,”l LOVE shopping!” And she does. Not only did she find MANY items that she wanted for herself, she found several matching items that she and big sister could have. It was very sweet.
    We ended our morning shopping spree at a wonderful pancake house that had just reopened a week or so ago. The restaurant is an old place that is beautifully decorated with even older stained glass windows, lights, and wonderfully tiled floors. Youve seen the interior if you ever saw the movie, “Ordinary People”. It has been a tradition in my family to celebrate birthdays there. For the last twenty years of her life, I’d take my mother there. And whenever my sister is in town, we go there – birthdays or not. Calamity said she was last there for her 5th birthday, and was very excited to be going there for her 7th. She especially loved having their small chocolate chip pancakes “with whipped cream” and she “knew” that when she told them it was her birthday, they would give her a strawberry ice cream sundae. And they did. She was in heaven and so was I to see her so genuinely happy.
    After our delightful lunch, we went to a dollar store so she could get some “birthday decorations for my birthday dinner tonight”. It was so much fun. For both of us. Most meaningful of all was when she said (more than one time, actually) that she loved spending the day with me. 💞
    In the end, we got home and although she had quite a few things to show her mom, her favorites were the bike helmet and wrist and knee guards that she chose because her parents had given her a small skateboard (called a penny board). So, before almost anything else, she donned the helmet and guards and went out side with her skateboard and practiced “boarding”. So cute!
    Thanks to everyone for your brilliant and generous suggestions for this important birthday. It was truly a wonderful day!

    Seems pope climate the first warned of a great flood if we don’t heed climate warnings.
    Did he read a different Bible. Pretty sure the story I was taught God made a covenant with Noah. Something about colors in the sky after a storm. A promise to never flood tge earth again.

      I think they just did institutionalize voting fraud. The bill should be called HR1 “For Only The Right Kind of People Act”.

    Ashkenazi are predominantly Bourbon frogs and coneheads. That means French, not German. Not sure how Yiddish-isms became common language currency on the LES, UWS, and WEHO.
