THIS PUSSY GRABS BACK

This weekend belongs to the women. Marches yesterday and today world wide.

The women marching assertive.  Don’t tread on me the message. Things are going to change.

I did not pick up on pussy hats last year. Did this year because a lady friend told me the other day she had to get a pussy hat. A pink one, hopefully with two ears. Knitted.

The knitting came into play while planning for the first march last year. Women knit! More than you think. I had another lady friend several years ago who owned a small knitting store on one of the less busy streets in Key West. The store was a gold mine. Especially when a cruise ship was in.

I googled pussy hats this morning. Featured was also a baseball cap. The wording on the cap: This Woman Grabs Back. Shades of Trump’s ill gotten words.

Pink because it is the female color. It speaks for itself re femininity and women’s rights.

Many women are attired in black this year. To voice their support for me too and opposition to sexual harassment.

Spent yesterday in bed. Still sore all over. Bruising becoming more evident by day. Slept on and off during the day. Was awake all night because of it. Thank God for television and old movies!

Bed today, also. The new adjustable bed helps me select the most comfortable/painless  position.

Words that reflecte what we were as a country for one hundred years are becoming meaningless. I refer to the Statue of Liberty…..Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.

There are those who only want the well educated to arrive at our shores. Those that can be of immediate value. My grandparents and mother were poor uneducated southern Italians. Not doctors, lawyers, scientists, etc. Hard working laborers.

My mother at 13 worked 14 hours a day in a shoe factory in New York City. The men dug the sewer lines, prepared the streets for trolley car tracks, dug ditches, etc.

Their descendants became the doctors, lawyers and Indian chiefs!

If only the intelligentsia are admitted, who is going to do the low paying dirty work?

The political bickering is bitter. Each side pointing the finger. Being an elected official has lost its luster. Congress for example is a battlefield. Corruption exists. Job satisfaction lacking. A job well done not part of the mix.

The unqualified will be elected. It is already happening. Nothing will get done.

Supposed to be warm today. Seventy five degrees. Good! I hate the cold.

My afternoon will be enjoyable. Watching two pro football games from bed.

When Bill Clinton was President he recognized how government had developed. He snidely remarked one time that “the purpose of government is to rein in the rights of the people.”

This weekend belongs to the ladies. Two separate quotes by former Presidents re women. Presidents of the modern era. The quotes reflect the nature of the men.

Richard Nixon…..”I’m not for women, frankly, in any job. I don’t want any of them around. Thank God we don’t have any in the cabinet.”

Ronald Reagan…..”If it wasn’t for women, us men would still be walking around in skin suits carrying clubs.”

Enjoy your Sunday!

  1. I think the words on the Statue still apply.

    Unfortunately, the Democrats have created a welfare state. (The Republicans have created a welfare state.) Which attracts not those “yearning to be free”, but those wanting to sponge off the system. At the same time, our own native born have learned “helplessness” with the dole. (Similar to what is happening in England!) And, a large segment of the population (of various hues) is revolting.

    We need more “makers”; not more “takers”. (And, I include the non-brown people in that. As well as, the native-born “takers”, who probably through no fault of their own, have “learned” in Gooferment Skrules to be “disabled”.

    As EVIDENCE, i off the many studies that show certain immigrants arrive in the USA with nothing (no money; no education; no friends; no family) and in a few decades are middle-class or rich. I personally know two examples of this who diligently work their butts off to accomplish that. Hell, they are better off now than I am. (and, who by the way, despite their children going to Gooferment Skrules, DEMANDED that their children learn, by ASSIGNING them more “homework”. (The one child once showed me how she had done EVERY problem in her math book, while her Mom stood behind her beaming.)

    And, on the topic of “shitholes”, why do we think those folks want to come here anyway? And Booker, the ex-mayor of Newark, only has to look at his city as an exemplar of “shitholes”. Why are many inner city “shitholes” run by the Democratic machines?

    Sorry, but “we” need to end the “welfare / warfare” state, as implemented by both “major parties”. “Charity” done by the Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. And they are untrustworthy as well. The geniuses, who created welfare, destroyed the black community. Remember that purpose of Prussian-system Gooferment Skrules was to get cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite.

    We need everyone, who wants to work hard and “melt into” being an unhyphenated American. As usual, the Gooferment can’t distinguish between them and criminals. Between them and parasites. Between good and bad.

    Argh!

    • and another thing. I am sorry but after hearing they want to sing the National Anthem in Spanish – enough is enough. Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German or any other language because of immigration. It was written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it was written The news broadcasts even gave the translation — not even close. Sorry if this offends anyone but this is MY COUNTRY – IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP — please pass this along.

      I am not against immigration — just come through like everyone else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the past — and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

  2. God gave man free wiil. the difference between us and the ants that have been around for many millions of years in many more numbers than humans. That means we can chose to toss that ciggy butt out the car window or dispose of it properly. That, in a nutshell, foretells the future of the human race.
