The Real War On Women

Real Talk

There is a war on women. That cannot be denied. What needs to be realized, however, is that the war is being waged by the very Democrat Party which claims to be their champion.

Gone are the days of women trying to break through the glass ceiling. Real women, the biological, anatomical kind, that we were taught to never hit and always protect, are being replaced with a subset of men pretending to be something which they are not. A man won “Woman of the Year”. Men are winning women’s weight lifting titles, track titles, acting awards, etc., while women are being relegated to the symbolic back of the room.

Just the other day, actress and singer Demi Lovato stated that there are “boys with vaginas and girls with penises”. No, Demi, there are not. What does exist, however, is an obvious rise in mental illness that no one wants to address. People, primarily on the Left, just want to coddle those afflicted and push them into the spotlight. And…they do it all at the expense of “real” women.

Actual women are now having to face the very real probability that they will share locker rooms with an actual penis. But, hey, move along. There’s nothing to see here.

I’m married to an actual woman. She and I are raising two little actual women of our own. They know the difference. We taught them. They also know not to hate, discriminate against, bully, or mistreat anyone who falls into the “trans” category, or any other category under the alphabet soup umbrella. We taught them that, as well.

It is absolutely wrong to show hate towards the trans community. It’s also absolutely wrong to brush actual women aside to give away everything they’ve worked for to men.

Now Can We Move On?

Trump survived a second impeachment trial. I’m glad, but not for the same reasons as you may be.

Look, I freely admit that I voted for President Trump…twice. I have no regrets about it. In my opinion, it was the correct way to vote. I stand by my decision.

If Trump could’ve shut the hell up from time to time, and learned that every single little thing doesn’t need a Twitter response, he would still be President. As I’ve said before, Trump was Trump’s biggest obstacle.

It must be recognized that the Trump administration did some great things in regards to policy. It must also be recognized that it failed in other areas where it could’ve made a real difference. Those are just the simple facts.

Also fact: Trump is not the best thing since sliced bread. He’s not even the greatest President in my lifetime. That honor goes to Reagan, and rightly so.

But…back to the point. Trump has been acquitted for a second time. It’s over. It’s done. The friggin’ obsession can finally end.

We now need to focus on getting our country back. Not “back from the Democrats”, but back from the ever growing bureaucracy that is our own federal government. We need to commit to reining in a Washington that is out of control, power hungry, and corrupted to its very core.

This was never the “Land of Trump”. It’s also not the “Land of Politicians”. This is America, a nation whose power is derived by her people. It always has been, and, God willing, it always will be.

It’s time to move on, refocus, and regroup. There’s still work to do. We can’t depend on a bunch of D.C. elites to do it for us. It’s up to regular folks, like you and me, to fix what is broken, and maintain what isn’t.

Let’s get it done.

Adore Your Children (World Saving Tip #11)

Real Talk

“When my kids become wild and unruly, I use a nice, safe playpen. When they’re finished, I climb out.” – Erma Bombeck

Any of us who has children know this quote to be a true statement of a feeling that we have each had at one time or another. (My wife has most likely actually put this into practice…and failed to tell me of it.)

Where do I begin?

Children have a way of making us feel the entire spectrum of human emotion, and they cause it to happen in mere seconds.

I never really felt fear until my first daughter was born. Now that I have two daughters, fear is the common denominator in my daily existence. I fear for their safety, fear that I am not setting a good enough example, fear that I’m not doing enough, fear the fact that they’ll eventually start dating, and fear them getting married. Being a dad with daughters just seems to set an expectation of living a fearful life.

But along with that fear comes a joy, and a capacity for love, that is unmatched by any other experience. It is those two emotions that have a tendency to bring out the best in who I am, and who I want to be. They cause me to truly push myself to be the protector and provider that I am supposed to be. They make me better.

And shouldn’t it be that way for all of us?

Imagine a world of parents, each striving to be better today than they were yesterday, each smiling and laughing more, each playing more, each loving more…simply because the children are watching.

Maybe we would argue a little bit less, and fight a little bit less frequently.

A world of parents such as these, holding on to the things that make them better for their children, would, quite possibly, be a better world for all of us.

There is no single thing that can make us be greater than we are than the love of our children. So…love them, hold them, and, most importantly, adore them.

Until next time,
