Election Eve 2016

I'm sure there will be a dozen posts about this election. The country is absolutely divided. 

Trump vs. Clinton

Trump has made promises of slowing immigration, building this infamous wall Mexico will pay for, deporting 11 million undocumented immigrants, banning Muslim Terrorists, defeating ISIS, creating more jobs and cutting taxes. 

I will admit he changes his mind like I change my panties. He needs to make a 'Mom To-Do List' and stick with it. I believe he truly wants to make American great again and he believes he will do right. 

Now Hillary, good Lord. This woman makes me sad for having a vagina. I really have nothing nice to say about her. She is an embarrassment. She is, at the very least, a liar. Why can't she just say, "Yea. I deleted the e-mails. Oopsy!" Shit. Keep a little credit on your side, Hil-dog. Did you know that felons are not allowed to vote? I'm not talking about the ones sitting in jail still. I'm talking about the people who served their time and are trying to live right. I can go on about that, but that's a post for another day. 

Anyway....where was I? 

I am all for a woman President, but this cow is more embarrassing than Trump's spray tan. Which brings me to what happened when I went to the store for my energy drink this evening. I visit this store often. Kind, good kids. Two of the employees were behind the counter, laughing and joking back and forth. They were talking about the election. These are two of my favorites at this store and I quickly join in with them. The little girl, she's 18, volunteered that she voted for Hillary and proceeding to tell me her reason why. 

Go ahead, take a seat and hold on. 

"I didn't vote for her Hillary because she is a woman. I voted for her because she has more experience. Plus, I don't want to see a cheeto in office" 

Yes. Your eyes do not deceive you. I'll let that sit in for a moment. 

Didn't vote for her because she thought her ideas were better such as raising minimum wage or her ideas for their age group 18-25 will be beneficial. 

No. Not even close. 

Because. She. Doesn't. Want.  A. Cheeto. In. Office. 

My mind was blown. This is why we are in trouble. The 'Millennials' are more concerned about looks than what really matters. You don't like Trump, fine, but come up with something better than he resembles a cheeto.

Louisiana Looters

Have ya'll heard about the "Louisiana Looters?" This whole ordeal has really chapped my ass. I'm not one to jump on the PA boat with my high horse and condemn these particular people, but this is ridiculous. Let me give you the quick scoop.

Last month, Xerox was doing a routine system check and the system crashed. When this system crashed, they alerted all EBT accepting retailers in 17 states. Some stores put up signs stating that shoppers wouldn't be able to use their cards due to technical difficulties. However, Wal-Mart, being huge idiots, agreed to allow shoppers to use their EBT cards thinking they would use that trusty honor system. When food stamp recipients found out about this in Springhill and Mansfield, Louisiana, they went insane. They cleared the shelves, throwing anything and everything edible in their carts.

I'm curious. At what point did the managers of Wal-Mart realize that people were being deceitful. Was it when people were acting like the sky was falling and stocking up for a Zombie Apocalypse? Or maybe when they had to call the police for crowd control? Maybe it wasn't until they announced that the system was up and people left their completely full carts all over the store and walked out.

I just don't understand this. I don't understand why people receiving benefits were taking full advantage of the system and Wal-Mart, to an extent, absolutely knew what was going on and allowed it to happen. One lady, rolled on up to a cash register with over $700 of groceries in her basket. The system came up in the middle of her transaction to find out she only had 50 cents on her card. The police tried to arrest her and Wal-Mart released the woman.

So, who do we hold accountable? Wal-Mart for not using the emergency protocol and allowing recipients to over spend by hundreds? Or is it the recipients who knowingly took advantage of the system during a major malfunction? The Governor of Louisiana has released a statement saying these people will be held accountable and will face consequences of their actions. Consequences include banning from the program for a year, two years or life. All in all, the ones that will truly suffer are the children because their parents made a horrible, thoughtless decision. There is a process to determine eligibility for the program and they obviously qualified or they wouldn't have had it to begin with. So, will baning these people really solve anything? Children will go hungry and who knows if these parents will find a job or a second job to make up for their benefit loss. I don't agree with life sentences of receiving benefits. I think this should be a "wean off" program. Welfare was created to help people in bad times. A program to help them get back on their feet, not a way of life. I hope the people who took advantage of a technical malfunction will have to pay the consequences. I just hope the children of the irresponsible parents don't end up being the victims.

What are your thoughts?

Honestly Annoying

This morning,  I was over at People I Want to Punch in the Throat blog page. (I love that lady. She is great and funny and one day I hope to meet her. Jen, if you're reading this, you are awesome and I pretty much looooovvveeee you. More about that another day.) She was pissed about this Jessica Alba owned company attacking another Mom Blogger. I did my research and I'm pretty pissed, too.

1. Why did Honest Company ever do an interview with The Honest Toddler? Honest Company reserved the domain name of in 2012.  Shortly after this interview they asked for The Honest Toddler to shut down and start over because Honest Company was afraid people would become confused between expensive diapers and a sneering toddler. D you really think mom's are that stupid, Honest Company? I know the difference between a $10.00 bottle (By the way, what the eff is that? A $10.00 bottle? geeeez) and a hilarious comment from a baby about daily life. Not baby. Toddler. They state that being called a baby is the same as a racial slur. Shit. Please accept my apologies. Thanks.


C. Is Honest Company going to go after every company with Honest in their name or are they just bullying a mom blogger? There are so many different things with honest in their name, but why won't Honest Company go after them? Well, there is Honest Tea and Honest Kids which are ran by Coca-Cola. Yea, I wouldn't mess with them, either. Or what about Honest Mom? I don't see them attacking that Mom Blogger.

They have gone after this Mom because she has been so successful. Her blog, social media and book has really taking off. She's put in all the frustrating hours of trying to publicize her blog and it's paid off. However, Honest Company will not take her down without a fight and will not bully any of us Mom's. We stick together and we fight for what's right. That's what we do.

I encourage you to share this blog and also Tweet, Honest Company and Jessica Alba (it makes them nervous), to leave Honest Toddler alone.  #thehonestcompanysucks
