FOCUSING ON THE FLAWS OF FUNDAMENTALISM SINCE 2005
Welcome to Free Jinger. Before you dive in, here is a little bit about what this site is all about.
Free Jinger is a free speech zone. We do not moderate based on anything other than hate speech. If you don’t like what someone is saying, challenge them. We prize logic and reason here, as well as thoughtful debate. We do not believe in deleting content, except in very rare situations. In other words, the internet is forever, so think before you post.
If you found us from a Google search of "Duggars", you should know this is not a Duggar fan site. So what specifically is discussed here at Free Jinger? The main forum is Quiverfull of Snark. Primarily Free Jinger is used to discuss the ways of extremists and fundamentalists, mainly religious fundamentalists, and the impact that has on our society. We also have quite a snarky side. Sometimes the discussion is very serious, sometimes it is humorous. The discussions can get quite heated, and may even border on venting so please, no grammar or punctuation policing. 'Text speak' is not allowed. If topics religious, feminist, or reproductive will harm your psyche, consider carefully before you wade in.
On this site we also have forums to discuss misogyny and other issues going on in the world. And for when you're in a lighter mood, there are a few fun forums for discussing entertainment and hobbies.
If your viewpoint tends to the “traditional,” you don’t need to leave – in fact, you are welcome, because otherwise we’re just a bunch of hens agreeing with each other – but you do need a nice thick hide and the intellectual ability to defend your thinking. “Because Mama and Jesus told me so” is not good enough.
You have been warned.

OK Folks- I just remembered the ACTUAL worst candy I ever had, WAY WAY worse than Circus Peanuts.
Anyone here ever tried Pickle Flavored Bubblegum??
One of our neighbors handed these out for Halloween one year... if I'm not mistaken they might have only bought a handful for specific friends of their kids, and gave the other trick-or-treaters regular candy. Boy howdy, would regular candy have been better. It was this tube of pickle-flavored powder (on a necklace, no less!) that you poured in your mouth and it turned to gum as it mixed with your saliva. It was every bit as gross as it sounds. It took FOREVER to finish off the tube, because it was super disgusting, and it way out-lived any other Halloween candy I got that year. Eventually, whenever the tube was empty (and I can't remember if I actually finished off the gum or just dumped it out) I used it to hide tiny toys inside, and they always came out smelling like raunchy pickles. 🤣

That video is one big exercise in excess! I'm glad to see that Gwod wears gobs of 50+ spf sunscreen on her face, even though it doesn't photograph very well. (/snark) Is her message really that if you worship correctly, you, too, can have this incredible lifestyle? Her minions must feel like failures if they don't yet have a plantation, plane, or pilot.
I just don't understand the willingness to throw money at these creatures.
She DOES talk a LOT about receiving jewels for obedience. She has said that if we're obeying (particularly in the area of eating) then one day we will receive an unexpected compliment or something like that. She alludes to the fact that her material possessions are God's blessings for her obedience, because she has often told the story of how she was submissive to her ex-husband when he wanted to sell a previous home and god gave her an even bigger one! She did follow that statement up with, "...but you wouldn't want a house the size of mine to clean..." but then she seems to REALLY enjoy that house, so...

Am I the only one that finds it odd that Andrea’s meal cards appear to be in like-new condition? I guess there is the possibility that she recently updated them, but in many homes these would have worn corners and food stains.
They aren't really recipe cards. They are just meal ideas - they list the main dish, side(s), and dessert. She would rotate through them and I think she wrote the meals for the day in her planner. She didn't use them while cooking in terms of a recipe or while making food, just for the ideas. So it is no surprise to me that they are in good condition.
I think it's a great idea and one I always mean to start but haven't (lazy). I am good with main dishes but struggle with side dishes. This takes out the thinking once the cards are done.
I promise never to laugh at any of y'all if I see stains on your clothing. 🙄
But really, is that what we are calling "short shorts" these days?? You youngsters have apparently never seen a pair of booty shorts. PS Get off my lawn.
Now that this has its own thread I would like to add the BEC comment that
Medical, Evacuation, Disaster, Intervention, Corps Corps
Is the dumbest name. You can't use a word in your acronym and then say it again. It's just lazy.
You don't hear Canadian journalists saying the NDP (new democratic party) Party.
