The Thank You to my Followers and Readers

Dear readers,

I’d like to thank all of you, whether you follow me or not, for reading and viewing this blog. Right now as I type this, watching the Campbell’s Soup show with jack Carson, and it’s old. yes, I like old time radio. The thing I don’t like is some of the racy things they come up with in story lines. I’d like to thank those of you who supported me especially last year, especially during the difficult months of the pandemic. I know we’re not over the hump as far as that virus goes, but still, I want to address something very good. Followers are coming. Thank you bunches for following me. If you want to hit me up on Twitter, please visit http://www.denverqueen.com and click under the Connect with Me heading, the Twitter link is there.

An update: periscope will be sunsetting its app, and Twitter will take over the livestreaming capabilities of Periscope, so you won’t see the Periscope link as of march of this year. My website guy, Trenton, will be helping with fixing things along the way. I’d like to also tell you guys that parlor sucked anyway, and it wasn’t accessible, so I’m glad it’s gone. Thank you all for follows and reads, so please keep those up. Comments have been disabled here because of trolls. I’d like to thank a couple of cool people. Tim Applebee from Canada, thanks for your follow and thanks for your liking stuff. BB Cole, I don’t know you but thanks for following. For those of you who want me to follow you, I have followed people with the buttons next to their names. BB’s blog doesn’t have that, but I need to look into subscribing in the blog undoubtedly and figure out but then I also have the same prob with the Dog Training Blog. Thanks to dog people, I have more need to write about dogs. But i don’t own a dog, I just happen to think dogs are great animals who serve in all kinds of ways. Dogs and cats make great pets, but don’t expect the seeing eye to register a feline any time soon.

All in all, I’d be glad to call out more names if I know who else is interested in follows. I need more followers here, but 80 is great. Let’s make it to a hundred.

This is How you Form a Trumpist Autocracy … Or Not

Dear readers,

Want to know how to form a Trumpist autocracy? Not. Well, you just saw it on the news today, a bunch of angry people stormed the Capitol because their man didn’t win. First and foremost, that’s like someone stealing the checkerboard because they didn’t win your game of checkers. Or someone telling a football team they sucked and punching them out after they win instead of shaking hands with the footballers after they win. Sadly, people don’t know how to lose. Please, parents, teach your children that losing is okay, but winning is optional. If you don’t win an election, do not under any circumstances insult your opponents. Guess what? I have an example of people accepting defeat.

I was at a sports game with an intramural team or two, and we had an opposing team. Brother jason, a guy who was leading the prayer at the time, actually asked God to bless his opponents on the other team. Guess what? That’s how it’s done. We don’t pray for our opponents to get sick or die, or for people to storm the places where their government is. No, if you want to uphold the government, leave the Congress alone and let them do their job.

The violent incidents at the Capitol actually reminded me of the Handmaid’s Tale, when we could have had the following scenario: we could have had our Constitutional rights suspended under martial law, could have been conscripted as handmaids or in the army to fight a civil war, and worse off, this country could have been split yet again. To those who sought to believe the handmaid’s Tale is irrelevant fiction, you’ve been proven wrong. It almost happened today, but you know what stopped it? Mike Pence had his brain turned on, there was a swift action taken by the national guard people, and the FBI was deployed. Awesome, right? Well, talk about extreme whiner syndrome going on in the privileged class, it was awful. The Handmaid’s Tale could have become a book in which I couldn’t or no one could escape from, a reality that could have meant I was unable to type this blog, my daughters and granddaughters would have not been allowed to learn a skill like typing and reading and writing, and the embroidery would have been required. I don’t want to learn skills that are useful only in a hobby or craft to please a man. I want to participate in politics and government, and I will do so because human rights aren’t up for debate. Here’s what the Conservative side would have done had they done anything.

Probably the first thing on a Republican’s mind is to kill off those who don’t believe in the cause. Usually, a dictator will print up a hit list of people who don’t believe, hunt down those he doesn’t like, and kill them. This happened in Venezuela, and it could have happened here in the U.S. This is unreal.

Secondly, the Conservative angry people would have demanded that transgender and gay people be erased from society. This might have meant the wall, and if you remember watching or reading the Handmaid’s Tale, the wall is where all the bad guys are hung and the girls too. The wall would simply display a symbol on a plaque that would denote the charges the person had been charged with, example includes a pink triangle for being gay. And the person’s body would hang on the wall. This is something we cannot afford.

Thirdly, the Conservative Gilead would include rules for marriage, encourage child marriage, and other problematic cultural traditions. Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been fighting tirelessly for the end of child marriage because when a girl is eighteen, she can get protection if the dude beats her up. Sorry, guys, but gals need protection too. So do young boys. So here’s an act of contrition you need to consider if you think marrying off your girls is a solution. Don’t. Girls need to be able to make choices about their lives when they see fit. This also includes when and where to have children, to have or not to have children, and at what age they marry. I married at 34 years old because I couldn’t do it earlier. My parents denied me that choice because they were stupid. They were toxic and Conservative for the most part. Though my mom was a Democrat, I was frequently called a “baby killer” by Conservative students at THS because I wanted John Kerry to be President, but then I thought about the babies. Now I think babies aren’t the problem or the solution. It’s the women who are the ones who are in most need of care if they don’t want a baby. Babies can kill women more easily if they aren’t placed properly in the womb, and if a woman cannot carry without fear of death, she should abort without question. In any case, Conservative Gileadean society would forbid divorce, abortion, and single motherhood and put all women in a slave class. Blacks would be exterminated, which that would mean the end of me and Trenton altogether. We couldn’t travel to Florida with our own children, who would by this time be considered bastards. Exterminating people like insects is not the solution, but that’s what Trump’s allies wanted. Because of Trump’s visceral lies and threats, now his Twitter is gone, his Facebook blocked. That’s something that the Gilead founders did not have. Thank the Lord above for Facebook and Twitter doing their jobs to keep us all safe. On WordPress, I blacked out people for commenting and getting into the business of my blog unlawfully. I can do it again if I had comments on, but please. IF you read this, comment on Facebook or Twitter.

Thank you for reading this, and if you’re in D.C., stay inside and stay safe.

Letter to the Racist Hackers who Threatened My Partner’s Life

Dear readers,

I know none of you readers here are responsible for the Denver Post’s twitter account being hacked, but let’s be clear on this. No newspaper or journalistic site deserves hacking, especially by racists. My partner’s black, and I won’t evacuate the city on january 1, as one tweet said. Do not use racial slurs when you tweet about this entry, by the way. I don’t tolerate racial slurs and epithets. You don’t know my wordpress passwords, I’m sure you readers know the rules. Please read the rules on my blog, and there are indeed two different rules pages I’ve created. I need to be frank though, the hackers should be prosecuted for hacking the Denver Post and posting all those racist things on the twitter account. The Denver Post’s editor in chief clearly said that the tweets don’t reflect the views of the post, but Trenton, my partner, and I do not ordinarily read the post unless it’s important. That’s the paper for Denver, but still, if you don’t live in Denver, this doesn’t apply. Hacking pranks aren’t nice. They’re pranks, and they can be scary and lead to prosecution. Here’s a run down of what I will never write here in this blog.

1. I will never write racially charged epithets or slurs against any group of people.

2. I will never support ableism.

3. I will not threaten a bomb on anyone as happened on the Post’s twitter account.

4. I will not bash a particular organization but only state facts.

5. I will never write something that could threaten someone’s very core of life, however if the person I’m writing about committed a crime, including my ex, Nathan Larson, and others, their names go here no matter who or what it is.

6. I will not write that a religion is a cult unless it has the three characteristics of a cult: rigid boundaries, a godlike charismatic leader (such as Jane Whaley), and a rigid chain of command. There you have it.

Please note that this blog is not a bad place for anyone, and I want to make every effort to make sure that whoever is responsible for hacking my friends and the Denver Post and or my blog or anyone else for racist purposes is prosecuted under the full extent of the law. Period end of topic.
