Monday Rant of Randomness

This isn’t my typical Monday follow-up post, ie. this is what I did, this is what I watched, this is what I read, etc. Instead, I’m sharing random thoughts because my head exploded so many times this past week and weekend that I had to follow my PTSD counselor’s advice: “Get the anger and rant out by writing it down. Then delete it.” I did that. I didn’t delete the rant, but I didn’t post it. Instead, I offer these observations. Warning: There are bad words ahead.

The White House Correspondents Association needs to rename the group. I suggest The Middle School Mean Girls Club. Good grief. Grow the hell up and act like adults.

Some chick who claims to be a comedienne decided it was fine to body shame, denigrate, verbally assualt and otherwise flame three working mothers who have amazing families, intelligence, and careers. And not a peep from the feminists, because those women were conservatives. Hypocrisy much?

When did it become cool to mock an immigrant for her accent? Lookin’ at you, Jimmy, but you haven’t been funny, relevant, or cool for years.

According to many institutes of higher learning, the first amendment only applies if you lean liberal. Again, hypocrisy much?

I thought the Hippocratic Oath was sacrosinct to doctors. Not in Great Britain. That ol’ time socialized medicine strikes again. Rest in peace, sweet Alfie.

I’ve owned firearms since the age of 8. I’ve never shot anyone. Hrmm… Oh, wait. I did pull my weapon once. The threat of my loaded .357 was enough to deter the angry boyfriend who threw his shoe at me and then threatened to beat me and fuck me until I did what he said. Did I report that as a #metoo moment? No. Because I used my 2nd Amendment right to bear arms and defend myself. Plus, once the police arrived and arrested him, I had nothing further to do with the asshole. I’m #NotAVictim.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a class act. Chin up, lady! You got this.

I write romance and my heroes are alpha males who protect, defend, win bread, succeed, compete, and oh, they fall in love. According to the Univeristy of Texas Counseling and Mental Health Center, “masculinity is a mental health issue.” WTFH? (Look it up. It’s a real thing.) That’s one more school my grandson won’t attend. And FYI, if you have a problem wiht Alpha Heroes, don’t bother reading my books.

Another FYI, I’m married to an alpha male and I wouldn’t have it any other way. According to some (lookin’ at you, HRC), that makes me a Stepford Wife. *shoots double birds*

My husband, who has managed to live a full life as a traditional, masculine male, is an honorably discharged veteran of the US Army. He is a disabled vet, the injuries occuring while serving this country and defending all the rights we enjoy. You have the right to spew any stupidity you want. But when you start trying to shut up those who hold different views and you do it with incivility, and with an eye to denying those same rights? FUCK YOU! I’m like that character in the 1976 film, “Network.”

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more!”

So, yeah. Got that off my chest. How the hell was your weekend?

    Amen to you Silver. I too married a Vietnam alpha male and wouldn’t change a thing in our 50 years of marriage.

    • Silver James says:

      Thanks, Fran. And thank you and alpha male for your service. Spouses serve too, as my guy reminded me every day of his active duty service. And congrats on 50 years! ❤

    You go girl! Absolutely agree with everything you said. 😉 Love your books!

    Wait… There was a White House Correspondent’s Dinner this weekend? And labeling them “mean girls” is insulting to mean girls everywhere. I can’t come up with a name for those slime–at least, not with only one cup of coffee in me. As for the UT Counseling and Mental Health Center’s assertion, what do you expect from those steers in Austin?

    Obviously I agree with everything you said. +1 on the “You go girl!”

    KB

  4. I second and third the ‘You go, girl’ with a side of “Sing it, sister!”

    And a heaping helping of :hugs: because even we strong women with our Awesome Alpha Males can use a good hug now and then.

Got something to say?
