Chopped Liver

My son in law’s stepmom “Someone” I know wrote a glowing (public at the time she write it) report about her family on FB last night. She apparently considers him and his wife..our daughter… and their child to be “nothings” as she left them off her list of blessings. When I inquired about their family status being chopped liver she deleted my post.

Pretty sad. She’s missing out on a lot AND no one should ever be made to feel unloved, especially by family.

Quoted from “Someone”:
After looking at all the Christmas pictures and picking up the remains of last night I was reminded of how truly blessed I am. I have a wonderful husband, 2 beautiful, loving children, a caring, sweet son in law, a quirky, fun step daughter and 5 absolutely gorgeous, energetic grand children. I couldn’t ask for anything more!

There were lots of comments in a 20 hour period. But then, Poof, no more comments.

Much to my amusement, my post from late last night, along with all the comments that went with it, has vanished from FB.

“Someone” must have been offended and reported it as spam or as offensive.

Sadly, she works for her church and announces her Christianity at regular intervals but her actions and words in a public forum like FB show something else.

The (fake) Hate Crime Epidemic

Kathy:

What is wrong with people? Whatever it is seems to cause many to say things which are totally untrue simply to get attention for the hate crime they are say happened. It’s going to become like the little boy who called Wolf too many times and, I fear the true hate crimes and stories will go unnoticed in a field of ‘made up” hate crimes, bullying and ridiculous stories and behavior.

There are victims in this world, and I’m sure they’d agree with me when I say this: you shouldn’t want to be one of them. In America, we’ve turned Victimhood into a billion dollar business. We are apparently so bored and so comfortable that we gaze enviously at the “lucky” souls who have endured the slings and arrows of actual persecution.

Maybe it’s part of our obsession with being noticed. We find admiration too difficult to earn, so we settle for admiration’s whiny cousin: pity. Our grandparent’s generation never wanted pity, even when their situation warranted it. We, on the other hand, find it to be more profitable and…

I Am A Racist?

Kathy:

By these standards I must also be a racist. Of course, it’s also racism to cal me one based on the fact that I don’t like someone’s policy and the someone happens to be a different race than I.

The University of Alabama’s student newspaper has been forced to apologize after printing a profoundly disturbing, offensive, racist political cartoon about the president. Here’s the cartoon [Warning: NSFW]:

The students of UA — leaders of the future, the greatest young minds in the country, the best and the brightest — were driven to the edge of rebellion by this sick and twisted, racially motivated attack against the Greatest President to Ever Preside Over Any Country Anywhere at Any Point Ever.

Here’s just one of the hundreds of angry comments that poured in after this horrible hate crime cartoon was published:

“I am completely and utterly disgusted with The University of Alabama. No matter where you stand with your beliefs and how much you disagree with his decisions, [Obama] has EARNED his position in office and deserves the respect that all of the past presidents received. Ask yourself, what does this…
