Duck Commander- Phil Robertson

As I settled in front of my computer at work and read my daily Google news, I was informed that Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty has been banned indefinitely for his remarks in GQ about the LGBT community and something against black people. This is ridiculous. Laughable, almost. His opinions were just that, his opinions. Here is what he said in regards to homosexuality being sinful.

"It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me. I'm just thinking: There's more there! She's got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I'm saying? But hey, sin: It's not logical, my man. It's just not logical," 

Hubby completely agrees with this and that's his opinion. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I'm sure he knew there would be repercussions of his words.From a Christian stand point, he is right. God frowns upon this, but God frowns upon a lot of things. Like Gluttony, for instance, and we all know America has a huge (no pun intended) issue with Gluttony. Pride, Envy, Anger, Greed, just to name a few, that we all have been guilty of a time or two. The cool thing about God is that He does forgive. He loves all His children. I have lesbian and gay friends, but honestly, I don't even see the sexuality in any of my dear friends. I don't care if they're gay, straight, or into crazy dominatrix shit. They are just my friends. And what they do in their life is not for me to judge whatsoever. They will have to answer to the "Man Upstairs" just like I will.

And then, good Ol' Phil went into his opinion on black people. Which I didn't find it offensive or even slanderous.

"I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once," he told GQ. "Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I'm with the blacks, because we're white trash. We're going across the field. ... They're singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, 'I tell you what: These doggone white people' -- not a word! Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues," GQ quoted Robertson as saying.

The NAACP and the Human Rights Campaign wrote a letter to A&E together. Basically stating that Phil must have not been there when black people were "lynched" for simply walking down the street and that being LGBT is "not a choice." If Phil had acted a fool, like Dog the Bounty Hunter did in his N-word rant to his son, then I could understand the reason for the letter and for A&E actions. But, he didn't. He simply stated what he believed in and that doesn't mean that's what you believe in, and that's OK.

People need to get their panties out of a wad and stop pulling the race and rainbow card over everything that could maybe be offensive. I completely stand-by what was said by Phil Robertson.

What do you think? Do you think he was just speaking his mind or was he out of line?

Pretty Wicked Moms

Have you seen this show yet? I watched it for the first time last night on LifeTime. This is like "Mean Girls" all grown up. I never knew there were real moms that acted like this. If you want to see a botox-dead face and fake group of women, this would be the ones. There is the Queen Bee, Southern Belle, Alpha Mom, Divorced Mom, Newbie Mom and the Doggie Mom.


The Doggie Mom has to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. I get you love your pet and they are your world, but you just can't compare an animal to a human baby. I don't care how many strollers, car seats or outfits you buy, your dog will never be a baby. Sorry, sweetheart, it's not the same. You can leave a dog in a locked kennel all day alone while you are at work. If you did that to a kid, CPS would be banging on your door and you would be fried on the 6 o'clock news.

The Queen Bee and Doggie Mom sit their skinny asses in front of the mirror and put on make-up all day long. I swear that's all they do. Last night, Doggie Mom was 'sick' and they cancelled on their Jew party for Divorced. Didn't lay in bed or take some Pepto. Just whined and put on more make-up.

The only one on this show I can kinda relate to is Alpha Mom. She is pretty down to earth. She is very health conscious, which that part doesn't relate to me at all. Although, I make sure our children eat healthy.

I'm just getting a really bad taste in my mouth about Atlanta, Georgia. Real House Wives of Atlanta is a joke. You want to show me a real housewife. Show me a mom with a messy house, kids acting crazy, a husband complaining and an average bank account. All of these shows are just grown up mean girls or Jersey Shore, without the Brooklyn accents, with money and kids. It makes me want to slap them.

Weekly Insanity 7-21-2013

This week has been insane, sad and happy all at the same time.  

I had a dear friend pass away. He lost his short battle to cancer and joined the angels Monday. He was such an amazing man. He loved my children as if they were his own and treated me like his little sister. His wife is my best friend from 6th grade. I am amazed by her strength through this entire deal. You make me proud to call you my friend. I love you, doll. 

On a brighter note, my sister-in-law married this evening to the man of her dreams. This short month of planning this amazing wedding. I know it was stressful, but the wedding and reception were beautiful. Y'all looked great.  I wish y'all the best of luck. May you be as miserable as the rest of us. 

My Fav Topics***

I think I missed the Honey Boo Boo 'Scratch and Sniff' event. Damn. I really was looking forward to smelling some body odor and a bodily function or hell, buttered spaghetti. Nasty. This is what makes Southeners look like fucking morons. This is WHY people think we're idiots and can't read or just flat out don't have class. You're a disgrace, Boo-Boo's Mother. You can't blame the child and I WILL blame the child's dumb ass mother. Shit.

Wal-Mart sucks and we all know this.  If I lived closer to Target, I would be a frequent shopper. However, I'm a lazy bitch that doesn't want to drive across town. 

Hubby No-No is a frequent read. I love the list and the add-ins I keep coming across. Like yesterday, for instance, at the rehearsal dinner. The Groom stood up to tell the story of how he and the Bride had met. He started off with I first met Bride in the 7th grade and she knew who I was, but I didn't know who she was plus I liked her friend. And he went on and on about how he NEVER noticed Bride until a couple of years. I would have beat my husband. He wouldn't have made it to the wedding. 

That's all I have tonight. It was a hectic week, but nothing I can't handle in this crazy thing called life.
