    The political/professional LGBT has nothing to do with most gay people. I honestly don’t get how trans issues have anything to do with me. This guy gets it.

      We were in a place where the vast majority of Americans believed homosexuality is innate. Same sex marriage is the law of the land, and with that came all of the legal, financial, and cultural benefits that come with being a married couple. Anti-discrimination laws in housing and employment have been in place for decades. The LGB community had “arrived”.

      Unfortunately, the trans movement stirred up a lot of new controversies and renewed some old ones. People are angry at many of the things the transfolks are demanding, and that anger transfers to the rest of the LGB community because the community embraced them. The Ts are such a small percentage of the population they would have little poltical clout without the backing of the gay and lesbian communities. My attitude is “you broke it, you bought it”. Not you personally, but the larger community. The time to stop it was when you could still stay transgenderism, unlike homosexuality, is a mental illness and shouldn’t be grouped with us, but politically that ship has sailed. The one group that is speaking out are the lesbians who are being called out for not wanting to have sex with transwomen, but other lesbians are calling them TERFs. Decades of progress for the LGB community are at stake, but there’s nothing the rest of us can do as long as the Ts are your “family”.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Basically the T part of LGBT is about saying the LGB part doesn’t exist and is by definitely T-phobia. Waiting for the LGB types to notice the threat.

      • elliesmom says:

        Some lesbians are under attack for refusing to have sex with transwomen so they notice, but the attack is coming from other lesbians, not the general public. The LGB community invited the Ts in. With most of the LGB’s demands met, they were losing poltical clout. The Ts stirred things up again. Unfortunately for the LGBs, a lot of the attention is very negative. I look at it as “You broke it. You’ve bought it.” Kick them out. Say homosexuality is innate. Transgenderism is a mental illness. They have nothing in common. But the LGB community as a political force won’t do it.

      • John Denney says:

        LGB is now Let’s Go Brandon 😉

    • DeniseVB says:

      I lost all respect for the political LGBT community after how awful they treated Milo and Brandon Straka. They’re just another scuzzy wing of the Democrats’ My Way or the High Way bullying. For some reason they haven’t been able to destroy Scott Presler who’s been spreading the good word about conservatism for years and a hardcore Trumpkin 😀

    Good Morning.

    Love those beautiful pumpkins. 🙂

      That’s wonderful to see! Homeschooling is not for everyone, the parent must be organized and know how to be firm. It helps if the children are motivated too. It can get expensive though, that’s where groups like this come in. People can pool resources, not just physical resources. If you have a parent with a knowledge in a particular area that helps tremendously too.

      There are oodles of resources out there. I thoroughly enjoyed homeschooling my youngest. Admittedly there were times when I thought my head was going to explode, but thankfully the good days far outnumbered those days. It can be intimidating at first, but you quickly find a rhythm.

  5. DeniseVB says:

    Gotta love the Bee, predictor of the future 🙂 When I saw the story downstairs, do we know if parents signed permission slips ?

    • elliesmom says:

      My guess is parents did have to give permission. There’s a lot of legal liability attached to taking the kids off school property, both for the school and the bar owner. Not giving your child permission to go on a field trip doesn’t give him the day off, and there can be a stigma attached to being left behind. I’m guessing any parent who didn’t sign on was a parent with the option of keeping her child home. A lot of parents wouldn’t have a real choice.

      There’s too much legal liability attached to taking kids off school property for parents not to be sent a permission slip to sign.

  10. Helen Kenney says:

    just saw that the NAACP wrote letters to sports leagues telling athletes not to sign with Texas teams. I am from Philly so we do not like the cowboys but what the hell. Their reasoning is the abortion law and the voting laws. How many black babies are aborted each year. but maybe they do to give donations to the NAACP. How many illegals try to vote and take jobs from blacks each year, but what the hell , that does not hurt blacks does it?

    another just my opinion

    • Constance says:

      This is what is important about election forensic audits. Not that they are going to return Trump to the White House before 2024 but that procedures are established for de certifying corrupt elections. Up until now there have been zero consequences for election rigging.

    ps://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/10/sen_dick_durbin_goes_off_on_the_parents_ag_garland_wants_to_persecute.html

    remember all these attacks on parents at voting time. how safe are your kids in school now?

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      It occurred to me that maybe distance learning had a few side effects that the Ds had not envisioned. Did some of those kids realized the parental units were not as dumb as the school system told them they were? Did some parents encourage their kids more or get them to start asking questions or explore subjects off the officially approved and often narrow curriculums ?

      Garland and his ilk are not just being nasty tyrants there appears to be a level of fear of parents that give a dam and a resentment of reasonably stable families in general.

      • Helen Kenney says:

        when I had kids that were school age, one of the most important things that made my decision on where to live was the school district. Taxes and education figured into my decision. I am among millions who use the same things for the choice of where they live.
        Most parents want their kids to have a good education so they will have a good future. why can’t the benedicts understand that?

        • lateblum says:

          I believe the school bds and the politicians think that parents are so busy with work and then extracurricular activities that they don’t have the time to be as attentive as other generations of parents were. This makes for a perfect opportunity to introduce these unwanted and deleterious and wrong ideas into the children’s’ lives. I believe that the lockdowns and remote learning forced some parents to discover the treachery.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            They got to see exactly what was being taught and by whom. Up close and personal. The very good, good, could be better but try, the bad and the ugly.

    • lateblum says:

      I am not an “I told you so” person. Sometimes I wish I were. But it always is a good feeling when the opportunity arises even when I don’t say anything. Yesterday I ran into my neighbor who has been the bane of my existence here. We were at the grocery store and she began complaining – in a very low key manner – about how expensive life has become in the last year.
      Of course, I agreed. Who could not? She went on to enumerate all the ways life for retirees especially, costs have risen for her. She then said we needed to get Trump back in office. I think I surprised her when I said I doubted it would happen. This is my across-the-hall neighbor who is – like most people where I live – a RABID Democrat. The one who has all but driven me 🦇💩 over the past 28 years.
      Of course, she may develop amnesia and never recall our little conversation. But I’m accustomed to people doing that now.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I had been enjoying Perry Mason , Columbo and Midsommer Murders along some older documentaries and classic movies as background noise while working and the ads had been few and far between. But lately I have noticed there are more ads and a lot of bizarre ones on climate change and a green world and the need tear down walls. Now it will be interesting to see if these go away after mid term elections because groups have gone this route to get around what appears to be a policy of no literal campaign ads or of this is the direction of the services. . I tend to like voices as background working from home rather than music I use at the office but if it continues I will need to go haunt the used dvds section at the local used book store.

      • Helen Kenney says:

        if you like midsomer murders , watch Bergerac. John Nettles when he was younger, filmed in the 1980s. he was a hunk

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Just put it on my list!
          But it will need to be when I can pay attention as with reruns I can just listen to and know what’s is going on from the dialog.

      • elliesmom says:

        I watch Midsommer on Acorn so I don’t get any ads, but most of the ones for me on imDb are for erectile disfunction meds and some little kid chastising her mother for not having a hands-free holder for texting while driving.

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          IMDB is where I have been catching them but as I said I noticed that there are these weird just this side of political ads with words that I assume they think will trigger guilt to be a better bot running a lot now. I wonder if they have different mixes based on the ISP and being in swampland I getting a different mix. I found it odd because most people watching this type of show are not the target audience for SJW ads.

    So yeah, this is Peak Privilege Lady but I had a very interesting conversation with my manicurist today. Normally I don’t wear a mask in my own damn house, but she is diabetic and I didn’t want to worry her and she’s very talented so I did it. So I was very surprised to hear this very typical French Millennial talking like a Crawdadder about all of this vaccine stuff and how she too can tell the economy is going down the tubes and everybody who is gonna get the vaccine voluntarily has already done it and this MUST END.

    I would’ve fallen off my chair, but I didn’t want to mess up my cute Halloween nails.

    • lateblum says:

      It must be the season! See my little comment about yesterday’s conversation with my neighbor. It’s just above ⬆️.

      Enjoy your nails. I’m getting mine done in 3 hours. I 💗 my manicurist . She is a Trumpster and a common sense woman who moved here from Ukraine.

    • 1539days says:

      The libs (MSNBC) keep saying “mandates work.” If a mandate works, people do what the mandates say. The thing that was “working” in the US was economic terrorism. Employers telling employees they’ll lose their jobs if they don’t comply. That kind of thing also made women put up with sexual harassment and men work in unsafe conditions that put their lives in danger.

      I don’t fault anyone who took the jab to keep their job. However, there are already people saying “screw you” to crappy jobs and there are more who will retire early and take a break instead of getting the jab. Then the US economy will really go into the toilet.

          My CEO had a virtual town hall talking about how low employee satisfaction had gotten and how there was a plan to offer benefits (IVF and paternity leave) and pay for top performers. Someone commented online that performance metrics were being abused by managers and he said that maybe people who think that should find another job.

          And they wonder why they can’t find employees.

      • Constance says:

        The thing is a lot of my age group who are retiring instead of getting the vaxx are setting up cash only side gigs. I think that the black market or under the table economy is growing while the taxable economy is stagnating.

      And yet there are quacks out there that they permit to keep their license for decades even with one botched case after another.

    “we will undermine the morale of the people of America. once there is confusion and after we have succeeded in undermining the faith in their own government, a new group will take over. It will be the German American group and we will help them assume power. adolf hitler.

    seems to me that the left has adopted that philosophy now

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I think they just slowed those plans down and minions placed here from both Europe, the Middle East and elsewhere hunkered down and moved at a crawl creating networks of supporters and waiting for an opportunity to spring into action. Moving Barry forward with VJ constantly at his side over anyone else in 2008 pushed the the plans out in the open . if anyone pointed out those two and the convenient marriage partner all with fake rags to riches stories were suspicious they were called racists.

    something that msm does not seem to talk about in the logjam at the ports. the empty containers that are not reloaded on the ships so they can be returned and refilled. so the even after the current logjam clears it will be a while before new products can be delivered to the USA

    if the bid-on bunch gives illegals $450,000 to come here, how much do the illegals have to give to the cartels for bringing them under threat of harming their families back in there home coun try?
    is this a bid-on kickback to the cartels?

    One of the climate change/world ending/cancel ads just came on so I made sure to get the name of the group. There are a couple. This one is Sciencemoms* and shows the horrors of a world without their superior views. A “nonpartisan” group of “client scientists who are also moms” are targeting a few key states with their ads. This may be why I am seeing these and others are not.

    Most of the videos of their ads have few or no views and I am not going to give them any more. Most blips are behind paywalls – but this is the group.

    I finally broke down and subscribed to Fox Nation. Because I want to see Tucker’s show about 1/6 which comes out Monday. For my first show, tonight I watched his interview with Mollie about her book “Rigged”. I bought her book, but haven’t read it yet. The interview was fascinating and I liked that Tucker started out by asking her some questions about her background and how she ended up in journalism and DC. I still get so mad, disgusted, frustrated, sad – every word you can think of – when we talk about that election and what has happened since. I’m trying!

    • lyn5 says:

      You made me subscribe too, and Fox took PayPal.

    • elliesmom says:

      Tucker adds 3 new hour long interviews to his Fox Nation Today show every week. They hit the schedule around 4 pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. All of the older ones are there for you to catch up. My favorites have been Douglas Murray (2) and Victor Davis Hanson. Don’t miss Marjorie Taylor Green and Kirstie Alley. The only one I’ve had a hard time making it through was the two-parter with Rose McGowan. It wasn’t what she said. Her mannerisms were distracting for me. The priest who wrote the book “What’s Worth Dying For?” or a title something like that was fascinating.

      • taw46 says:

        Yes, there are so many I want to watch from seeing the snippets he previews on his regular show. I don’t know why I waited to do this. Maybe I needed to get out of this funk I have been in for too long. I will definitely watch the ones you suggested.
