GCB – Good Christian Bitches

Posted by madjillmom on March 12, 2012

Evidently, Newt Gingrich has opined on this new show on Sunday nights.  I don’t know what channel it is on, but some of the previews I have seen look at least cute.  Thank goodness, there are shows like this in America. Thank goodness, we can run shows that poke fun at Christians.  Thank goodness, we can offend some ladies in a Baptist Church somewhere in America.  I hope they vote to boycott the advertisers of this show.

They can do this because they know that Southern Baptists won’t come and shot the people the play in this show in the head.  They can do this because the only current censorship existing in this country is a self-imposed censorship on insulting the religion of peace, Islam. We censor ourselves because we know that insulting this religion might get us dead.

We have personal choices.  We can watch this show or not.  We can boycott the advertisers or not.  America is great in this way.

Happy New Year

Posted by madjillmom on January 3, 2012

Its going to be a year of change for our family. Our second son has graduated and is going out into the world.  Fingers crossed.  Our third son is graduating in May and going into the Army.

My husband of 31 years was laid off as of Dec. 31st.  He has never been without a job our entire time together.  He has never had to look for a job as the company he worked for when we met was bought by a larger company, that was then bought by a major corporation. So, changes are afoot.  I am looking forward to something new and exciting coming into our lives.

2012 will be an interesting year.  As you know, there are predictions that the end of the world is upon us.  If things go badly in November, it really won’t matter too much.  Regardless, I hope this is a Happy New Year for all of us.

Dance, Bristol, Dance

Posted by madjillmom on November 17, 2010

I do not watch Dancing with the Stars.  I have seen probably 1 minute worth of clips on the news showing Bristol Palin over the last 6 weeks.  Of those clips, I can honestly say that the most recent clip showed a much improved Bristol.  I have seen earlier clips that show  her dancing way better than I ever could, though she wasn’t what I would call fluid. Evidently, the longer she goes, the crazier the Palin haters get.  That is a shame.  I was prodded to post this because of a great paragraph from Althouse.  Here it is:

“Maybe she will! Congratulations to the shy, unassuming teenager who didn’t particularly ask to be thrust into the spotlight 2 years ago, who went through an accidental pregnancy in front of millions of people (many of whom didn’t mind insulting her in any manner they found amusing), who didn’t hide herself away in shame, and who tried, again, in front of all of us, to dance. How many of the people who snipe at her, are too big of a pussy to dance anywhere, including on crowded dance floor at a local club?”

If you want to see the entire post regards Bristol, go here.

Chilean Miners

Posted by madjillmom on October 14, 2010

A whole lot of things had to go extremely right to pull off the rescue of the 33 trapped miners.  Some in charge seemed to know to under promise and over deliver.  It is a great story.  I could have lived without seeing each and every one of the miners pulled forth from their earthen graves but that is the 24 hours news cycle.  Now I will await the made for TV movie and the 10 books that will tell us the “real story”.  Congratulations to everyone involved in the rescue.

Sara Palin’s an Average Woman

Posted by madjillmom on July 15, 2010

I like Sarah Palin. I have from the beginning. She isn’t perfect. No one is.

When Sarah Palin saw the US Weekly cover where Bristol and Levi announce their re-engagement, I am sure that she felt just what any of us would feel. Having your child bring home someone who has proven to be or will prove to be unacceptable is a heartache. Most of us haven’t been publicly maligned by your child’s new intended all over the press. I never heard Sarah say much about Levi except that she was sorry he was doing what he was doing and that it hurt the family. I think she stayed above the fray and tried to protect the family from further damage. Levi will have to face the music. So will Bristol. Remember they are young and stupid.

I have been blessed that, so far, our sons haven’t brought home any girl that we didn’t like. Still, I feel Sarah’s pain. Some other mother might want to get ahold of Levi and really tell him what an ass he is. Plus, my mother’s alarms go off about the possibility that this new relationship is more about avoiding his financial responsibility than missing Bristol.

Obama’s Commencement Addresses

Posted by madjillmom on May 12, 2010

I’ve heard recaps of Pres. Obama’s two recent commencement addresses. Last week, he basically told a graduating class the those who oppose the great increase in the size of government oppose all the wonderful things government provides including the wonderful college you are graduating from. A few days ago, he told the graduating class of a black college that they needed to beware of I pads, I phones, video games and technology that might give you a point of view that doesn’t jive with the administration’s view of things. Yes, he was preaching moderation and critical thinking in what you ingest from electronics. That is a good thing. It is also kinda ballsy to bemoan electronic media and blogs when such things were used prominently by the campaign that put you into office. Something about the pot calling the kettle black.

In a few weeks, we will be attending Obama’s commencement address at West Point, one of the nation’s great institutions where all the students are supported by taxpayers in exchange for military service. I am working hard to prepare for a fine speech, filled with lofty rhetoric, praising large government that can limit graduate’s time on video games and the internet.

Too Many Crisises

Posted by madjillmom on May 3, 2010

I truly do not have time to post. The TV is on. The world is coming to an end. Oil spills, high unemployment, terrorists targeting South Park on Time Square, Tennessee drowning, GM lied about loan repayment, Puerto Rico may become 51st state, Greece if failing, inflation is up, and I am down. This doesn’t even address Obamacare and a new lefty Supreme Court appointee. It really is hard to get ginned up about all the problems. I should probably become insular and deal only with what goes on with just me. You know, a blog about doing the dishes, walking the dog, comments on my favorite shows. It would be way easier. They are winning. Soon I won’t care. Whatever…

No, I have never seen silver dust polished into wood on a car console. It looks lovely.  Who thinks this stuff up?

Merry Christmas to All

Posted by madjillmom on December 24, 2009

Our kids are home, the gifts are mostly wrapped, and the weather is blustery and cold. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. We are cooking in a few days, delaying our meal until some others are here to help us celebrate. Having some tamales tonight as is our ritual.
