Open letter to Lowe’s

Dear Lowe’s,

I do believe your staff is under trained. I keep hearing about how so many of your staff will ignore a woman who is shopping only to ask a nearby male (adult, teen, or whatever) if they need help.

Believe me, when I am shopping with my husband in tow, he’s there merely for pretty.  I do the work around here or I hire someone to do it.

This is not the 1950s.

Women do electrical work, plumbing, dry walling, tile setting, and any other job a man can do.

More women do yard and home repair work than ever before mainly because we’re our husband’s caregivers, we’re single mothers, we are widows. We outlive our men.

Train your staff. teach them that a woman will spend as much or more in the store as a man especially when treated like an equal and not like a 1950s trophy wife.

Also remember that women talk about places that treat us like second class citizens. We tend to avoid those businesses and tell our friends to avoid them too.


Me and every other woman who is tired of this crap.



No way #Cheeto man….

“an egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.”

I beg to differ. It was nothing less than a display of terrorism, bigotry, misogynistic, racist, Nazism.

Arrest them all as the terrorists they truly are and, as their leader, turn yourself in for prosecution.

This hatred and violence has no place in our nation. A nation founded on freedom.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Condemn these people for the terrorists that they are. For they are nothing more than homegrown terrorists.

Shame on #45. Shame on anyone who condones what happened in Charlottesville, VA!

Republican Congressional Candidate In Montana Assaulted A Reporter

Another thug running for office who needs to be kept from being elected.

The Republican Congressional Candidate In Montana Assaulted A Reporter. He body slammed him, knocking him to the floor, breaking his glasses.

This is assault and battery.

as·sault and bat·ter·y

noun: assault and battery
  1. the crime of threatening a person together with the act of making physical contact with them.

In Montana it is a misdemeanor to body slam someone to the ground.  Therefore, Montana Republican Greg Gianforte has committed a misdemeanor the day before the election. He should be arrested and jailed.

Please Montana, do not allow this man to gain a seat in Congress.


Still true these days

If you ever injected truth into politics you’d have no politics. WILL ROGERS, Weekly Article #31, Jul. 15, 1923

I wonder what Will Rogers would have to say about #Twitler #TheWhitehouserat #Cheeto? I’m sure he’d be as disgusted as most of us are. Only he’d word it so much better.

I’m betting he’d have a good time with The #idiotincharge’s nepotism. Never one to mince words and always on the side of the little guy, Will would’ve had a blast with twitter and #derTwitler’s Childish temper tantrums.

Hey, Will, if you’re listening. I’m willing to channel your comments any day.


Another WTF is that idiot doing day.

We have truly fallen down the rabbit hole and unfortunately it’s not Alice’s wonderland we have found at the bottom.

This is a rabbit hole of despair, horror, and insanity.

A man with the temperament of a spoiled rotten three-year-old holds our people hostage. #Twitler #TheWhitehouserat and his evil cronies are stripping away all that made this country great and have turned us into the country that may well destroy this world of ours.

We will have factories belching toxic smoke again. Rivers, streams, and lakes polluted and burning. Air quality so poor you’ll have to wear respirators. Oh yeah #theorangetroll will make us great again. Great destroyers of beauty and life.

Please countries of the world sanction the #whitehouseidiot! Help us impeach him and drive his cronies out.

This cannot stand

It saddens me that #theorangebaboon  and the Republican party are out to rip apart all the legislation that protects our air, lands, water, and animals.

It saddens me that they have no desire to work for us as they should but are so greedy that lining their pockets ranks number one on their agendas.

It frightens me that #Twitler is ignoring our laws and doing as he pleases. Really, giving titles and offices to your son? Your daughter? Nepotism at its best.

It angers me that The Republicans and #Cheeto seem to have a need to gut all programs that aid women and children.

Education, so important, is tossed aside and his person who is responsible for it is completely unfit for the job. All she brings to the table is her wealthy ignorance and large bank account.

The whole ‘let them eat cake’ attitude of this administration is detrimental to us all.

Rise up! This cannot stand.


And now from the realm of you have to be fucking kidding me…

As seen on the internet

1.”The Texas Senate passed a controversial bill on Tuesday that critics argue would empower doctors to lie to pregnant women.

Senate Bill 25, which will now be sent to the Texas House, prevents parents from suing their medical provider if their baby is born with disabilities, even if that doctor discovered the condition during routine prenatal testing and failed to inform the parents.”

2. The senate just voted to undo rules covering your internet privacy

3. The Senate voted 52-47 to remove protections for wildlife in Alaska. The bill overturns protections for wildlife in our National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska. One protection these bills overturn is allowing the killing of wolf pups and bear cubs in and around their dens, even by means of gassing dens. It also allows “hunters” to use aircraft to hunt bears.

4. A republican senator ridiculed women with breast cancer. A Kansas republican senator apparently thinks women’s health care is a joke… (I think they each deserve a mailbox full of bras.)

5. Not. A. Single. Woman. Was. At. The. White. House. Meeting. On. Women’s. Health.

6. Oklahoma state representative says rape and incest are the will of God. Oh, please tar and feather this guy!

And those are just the highlights from yesterday.

More things to rant over

Has anyone noticed the ‘natural gas’ ads that claim they are good for the ecology and all?

Did you also notice that the ads are Exxon/Mobil ads? Oh, yes they are. Look at the last few seconds of the ads and you’ll see Exxon/Mobil owns the ads.

Yes, big oil wants you to support them and forget that they are the biggest enemy of our delicate ecology. Think fracking, their desire to drill in our public lands without regulation, and the pipelines…mustn’t forget those nasty, polluting things.

Their ads are banned in the UK.

What gives?

Is it a small penis compensation thing?

What is this fascination with a stereo in a car so loud that it rattles the houses?

Huge speakers in the trunk and equipment spilling over on the back seats that makes the car utterly useless for anything but transporting a single person. (And the man has a growing family.)

Do these people know that dragging a child around in said loud vehicles is akin to child abuse? Do they care? Doesn’t look like it. Poor little girl will be deaf before she’s three.

Where’s my freaking package?

To our mailman: If you can’t do your job, stop lying about it, find a solution, or find another job.

Our mailman is a liar and lazy as hell.

He often doesn’t deliver our neighborhood’s mail for days on end. He also lies about attempts to deliver.

The Curmudgeon’s chair is about eight feet from the door he knows if the mailman has been there or not because he’s always in his chair.

We have a package that was supposed to be delivered yesterday and again today. Never got here.

I wouldn’t have known about the ‘attempt to deliver’ had Amazon not e-mailed me. We know there was no attempt. The mailman never arrived on our street. We watched for him!

The USPS is not reliable. The employees no longer take pride in their jobs. And we get screwed again.

I’ve notified the USPS and the Inspector General of the USPS. Do I expect results? Nope. But doing it purged me of the anger.

Oh, and he can’t use the disrepair of our steps as an excuse. They are fixed. Have been for a week.
