My son is driving me crazy. He's a tRumper.

I was thinking we were beginning to have some halfway civilized conversations and then he blew up over something today and I just want to write him off, but that means I write off the grand kids too.

My sister has older kids that are having issues. One daughter "S" is a off and on meth addict. So when "S" is clean, my sister lets "S" see her own daughter who my sister is the guardian for due to "S" is not a healthy parent.

My sister had the "audacity" (my son's words) to hurt his kids feelings. She bought tickets to a water park so that my son's 3 kids could attend a B-Day party with the daughter of "S". The water park is like 5 cities away from my sister's house, but she drove everyone out there (because it was really close to my DIL's parents house where they are house sitting) and called my DIL to say they were picking up the cupcakes and would like to meet at the water park.

Everything was fine until my DIL found out that "S" would be there at her daughter's birthday party. She often leaves these events early but her daughter was having so much fun "S" stayed a bit longer.

My son is blowing up about it (because it cut down the time his kids could be there by 4 hours) and doesn't want anything to do with that side of the family any more because he wants to support my DIL's sobriety - "S" got DIL the meth and DIL fought the issue for 3 years and is finally keeping it together.

Now if he said this calmly, it would be one thing, but he is screaming at me and my sister for wrecking his children's lives.

I told him he is over reacting and he says, "No" I have am tired of bending over and not being heard about this."

As I see it my sister bent over backwards to accommodate them and it was a free water park invite that he chose to pass by for reasons that we can support.

In fact, my sister said she will make a special trip to pick up the grand kids on another day to take them without the involvement of "S".

My son rejects this as any kind of solution.

He is so unreasonable. One thing he said is that if "S" shows up at his house, she will get a shotgun in her face and my son doesn't care if he goes to prison for it. He will "probably" give her the chance to just leave, but not certain about that. He is off the wall on this issue and many others.

What do people do in this kind of situation?

I can't just ignore it, normally my son and his family live with me (rent free - but he blames me because they had a chance at section 8 but I wouldn't sign saying they paid rent for a year because they haven't and I refuse to lie in that manner and wind up in prison for welfare fraud.)

DeSamtis IS REMOVING Free Speech from Universities because the only "diversity" they need is white


https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/24/ron-desantis-florida-governor-bill-indoctrination-colleges

The new law requires colleges and universities to conduct an annual survey measuring “intellectual freedom and viewpoint diversity” on their campuses. It’s an effort to gauge “the extent to which competing ideas and perspectives are presented”, as well as how free students, faculty and staff feel “to express their beliefs and viewpoints”, the bill says.

....


But critics fear the assessment will instead end up intimidating teachers, chilling free speech and disproportionately representing the perspectives of those who feel aggrieved. They are also concerned the data could be wielded to punish faculty or universities.

At DeSantis’s behest, Florida’s board of education also recently banned educators from teaching critical race theory, which analyzes racism as a systemic, persistent part of American life and has been weaponized by Republicans who say teaching about oppression in this form is divisive. The board similarly barred materials connected to the New York Times’s 1619 Project, a widely lauded effort that focuses on slavery’s consequences as well as Black Americans’ contributions.

Guess I might as well leave DU again

I will still be out there doing the best I can in whatever way I can.

But a lot of these discussions go in circles.

If you want to understand, they say look it up.

If you want to be understood, they say it isn't about you.

Well if you want my help but you can't tell me WTF you want, specifically, then it's stupid to have the conversation.

If I have to figure it out on my own, I will and peace to y'all.

I'd take a bullet for you but I damn sure can't handle these ridiculous conversations any more.

Peace Out.

Very interesting article about how Anti-Racist Activism can have a backlash on Interracial Couples

I know I personally look at the idea of "white" domination as more of something that is under the surface culturally and that if you are NOT racist, you don't dig in that toolbox.

Sometimes being white we have learned things unintentionally that need to be unlearned also, but I agree that to assume all other races are "victims" isn't appropriately respectful or helpful.

To acknowledge actual equality is to SEE their power as valid whether everyone else acknowledges it or not.

What do people here think of the article below?

It's not due to any racist malintent that I worry these crucial gains are being undermined. Quite the opposite in fact. In 2020, American had a great racial awakening, after George Floyd's horrifying murder was caught on tape. More and more people started to confront racism, which was of course a very positive change. Yet as the movement progressed, the necessary correction began to take a troubling turn.

I learned that some activists claim all white people are oppressors, while people of other racial groups are oppressed victims. I learned that they think that a racial power dynamic exists in every interaction between white and nonwhite people, and thus oppression is present in every activity of life. Acknowledging and fighting against white people's oppressive role, I learned, is essential for "anti-racism." And refusing to acknowledge it is "White Fragility."

As the people around me became more deeply mired in this worldview, I wondered, where does interracial marriage belong in these narratives? Why would oppressed persons want to marry oppressors? And if these activists are right, wouldn't we have to conclude that no authentic relationship could exist between white and nonwhite people?

So how does Biden's approval so far compare to whathisface?

It's probably an easy confusion... Dump sees bigger numbers and thinks he's winning, but the Disapproval is bigger than Biden's approval. That's apples and kumquats, dude.

Ever heard of Scopolamine being used for interrogations? IE Guantanamo Bay??



SCARY THOUGHT.... toward end of second *USH there were pushes for a drug to make people more susceptible to suggestion...

THERE IS ONE OUT THERE... called Devil Breath (aka-scopolamine)

https://www.thecabinchiangmai.com/blog/colombian-devil-breath-world-scariest-drug-kills-your-free-will/


Possibly a product of Nightshade... it's been used in various strengths to combat sea sickness, as a TRUTH SERUM and can ZOMBIFY a person (street drug is called Devil's Breath.)

IN ALL THESE MASS RALLIES... what if this drug were pumped out into the crowd?


WOULD it be possible to find it in the blood stream?


How long does Devil's Breath stay in your system?

It's also nearly impossible to detect, as it's only in your bloodstream for four hours. So by the time you emerge from your zombie state and go to a hospital, the remnants are gone.

I FEEL LIKE A CONSPIRACY NUT someone tell me this IS NOT possible.



BUT it would explain why seemingly normal people are CONVINCED an insane man is perfectly right about everything and fit to be President.

Not the ONLY explanation, but IF in the next violent wave, and it's happening in August...

IF WE TEST THE INSURRECTIONISTS for Scopolamine within 4 hours of the start of the violence AND it is found in their systems, that would be proof of intentionally INCITING (DRIVING) a group to violence against the government.

Asian girl is a wonderful "home maker" (wink) Share something positive about Asia or Asians

A whole channel of unique "off grid" builds by a young woman with just survivalist tools.

Such an industrious young person, so much knowledge and tenacity.

Just WOW!

IF so many creepers are going to hate on our Asian brothers and sisters, let DU show some love here.









Hand Sanitizer RECALL

https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/fda-updates-hand-sanitizers-consumers-should-not-use

[3/25/2021] FDA is warning consumers and health care professionals not to use Durisan Antimicrobial Solutions Hand Sanitizer manufactured by Sanit Technologies LLC doing business as Durisan in Sarasota, Florida, due to microbial contamination. Durisan has voluntarily recalled its hand sanitizer product.

Durisan tested its hand sanitizer and found microbial contamination including high levels of Burkholderia cepacia complex and Ralstonia pickettii, which can lead to serious infections, including infection of the skin, soft tissues, lungs or bloodstream. Individuals with compromised immune systems are at increased risk. Infection can occur with use of the contaminated hand sanitizer by consumers or by health care professionals who may also transmit the contaminating bacteria to patients. Use of this contaminated hand sanitizer by health care professionals who tend to an at-risk patient, such as one with cystic fibrosis, could lead to adverse events ranging from a localized infection to lung or bloodstream infections, which could require patient hospitalization or extend an existing hospitalization.



YIKES!!

Life is BETTER with Biden. Let us count the ways.

1) Trump had Andrew Jackson, the previous WORST pResident ever, slaver, white supremacist and Indian massacre architect as the chosen portrait in Oval Office

1) Better with Biden - Ben Franklin - Inventor and mainly good guy.
