    JRod 89: Straight Reppin Baphomet

    A facebook live on a Saturday night? What could Deadbeat Dave and his JillyBean be up to? *Well, they are at Lowe's in the "tow behind" car, because something electrical broke in the RV. Jill is sitting in the car facebooking while David goes inside. I guess there's no way she could've stayed behind with her precious children; he NEEDED her, right? That's why she stayed in the car instead of going in with him. Right? *It's Sadie's week, so she got to go into Lowe's with David. SO SPECIAL. *Today's facebook live is the same as her earlier written facebook rant (check it out in groups if you can): choosing joy. Jill immediately gets distracted by facebook comments and greeting everyone. She looks through the list of people online watching her and coos over the names. (Note to self: never watch Jill live) Now Jill returns to topic and brings up her sister Amy (again) and how Amy chooses joy. The gravity of her message continues to be undermined by her shout-outs as people watch her video. Don't compare your life to others. *Jill breaks off again to do some sign language, apparently in response to a hearing impaired viewer. Jill can only sign with one hand due to holding her phone. I'm not sure that all Jill's signs are actually ASL. Jill wishes she could be an interpreter someday because she's so expressive. *ANYWAY, choose joy. Someone in the comments mentions that sometimes depression is chemical and you can't choose your way out of it. Great segue, random person, because ***Plexus*** can help!! Jill's totally not trying to sell Plexus to you, by the way. It's just that she's had all these kids (and she lists them all out) and she was super tired. David told her when she only had 6 kids that she needed royal jelly like bees give the queen for energy. Jill says she's a queen bee. Plexus has become that royal jelly. Plexus doesn't work quickly, though, so don't try it and quit if it doesn't work. You have to give it a long time. It might not even show on the scale! But the difference will be there. (You just have to believe, I suppose). Plexus burns fat, but not muscle, so that's why if you aren't losing weight. *Plexus balances blood sugar and hormones. So it can help depression, too, if you're struggling "medically". You don't need medicine--some of those have bad side effects. So don't take pills that cover up your problems...you have to actually solve the medical problem. Through Plexus, of course. You can use skin creams and probiotics and other fabulous plexus products to cure yourself. Medicine will just hurt you. *God, David, and the kids come first. But then it's alllll Plexus. It gives her goals to work toward, like winning trips to Hawaii. David then arrives at the car and knocks on the window to get Jill's attention. She unlocks the door and keeps talking. Be on Jill's Plexus team, even if you aren't like minded with her (but she really really wants homeschooling Christian moms with a shit ton of kids). Ask your husband and use your income tax money to sign up. *And, oh yeah, choose joy. Jill loves you. Plexus, plexus, plexus, amen. The end

    I feel this way about assisted suicide. My mom was suffering so badly when she died at 91, on a ventilator and not coming off. I authorized removal of the vent, and she passed right away, so it wasn't suicide. But she should have been able to end her suffering when she wanted to, which may have been before I was ready to let her go. Death is not the worst thing that can happen to a person, unwilling suffering is. She died exactly one year ago today, and I miss her but I'm not sad because I did not want her unremitting pain to continue. Wonderful woman.

    That's what they're told secular life is like though, right? Especially by recent converts. The testimony of the Sinful Secular World is always framed as "Secular society made me cheat on my spouse, do a bunch of drugs, gamble away all my money, and sacrifice the odd goat to Satan every now and then." The complete lack of personal responsibility in the choices and circumstances that lead people to cheat, substance abuse, black magic, etc., implies that no one could withstand the temptation of SATAN that permeates the entire culture. It's always framed this way so that people like Joshley can confess and be immediately forgiven without ever facing real consequences or taking actual responsibility. So, if a good godly person falls to such temptation, which they do all the time, well that just proves that the secular godless people of the world must be doing sins ALL THE TIME. Because they don't even have Jesus to help them resist all the temptation to have sex with strangers on the bus in public, while snorting MDMA, bathing in the blood of the innocents, and listening to music with cursing in it!!! So that's what they all do. All day every day. Drug-fueled cursing and satanic bus sex. Now, the heathens out there will claim none of that is true, but don't you listen t them! They're all lying because they're all under satan's influence! That's why you have to be homeschooled, wear denim skirts and way too much makeup, and never leave your parent's umbrella of protection. Anyway, thank you for coming to my TED SOTDRT Talk.

    DWreck should be recognised as a hate group.
  5. I apologize if my comment above offended anyone. I'm a fatty myself, and yeah body-shaming isn't cool. But the snarky side of me was stronger and I couldn't not make the quiver joke, the setup was right there. Honestly I don't care what Jill and David look like body-wise. I care that their kids look scrawny, I care that Jill spends money on makeup and diamonds while her kids look like hungry ragamuffins and David's suit comes nowhere near fitting well. Weight is personal and difficult, and nobody else's business. The fact that they grift for a living, yet Jill seems to always get pretty much whatever she wants? While the kids share chicken legs and the babies sleep in cages? While Timothy can't come up with money for books at college, but sends mama fancy gifts? Those things bother me. Fat, skinny, I don't care, just take care of your kids!
  6. I agree with seeing the good in tough situations. Two weeks after my stroke, I could finally tie my shoes without help. I have a little sign by my bed that says, "You can still tie your shoes." Even on my worst days, I always remember that.

  9. I remember my younger brother getting "husky" size pants when he was in his pre-teens. Once he turned 15 or so, his metabolism may have changed, or maybe he just grew several inches, and he was back to wearing "average" size pants. I didn't mean to fat shame David. I too am overweight and have been for years. I used to have a real hate-hate relationship with myself and my body and that was a miserable experience. No one could have been more unkind to me than myself. So I definitely do not purposely fat shame anyone. My irritation with David stems from him 1) voluntarily quitting a steady job when he had over 10 children and a wife dependent on his income; 2) the fact that all of his umpteen children are stick thin; 3) seeing pictures of him waltzing into the bedroom at night with a plate pile high with food; 4) reading Jill's posts about all the times she and David go out to dinner, or away for a week-end getaway, leaving all or most of the kids at home to fend for themselves; 5) Jill working her ass off while pretending she's not, probably because David is doing the exact opposite. I have zero respect for David as a father or a husband. He is probably overweight due to a variety of factors, including being fairly sedentary, probably a poor diet consisting of a lot of carbs and sugary treats, perhaps he's genetically predisposed to a big belly, etc. If he was a hard-working guy, making every effort to provide the best life for his children, including opportunities to educate themselves so they could have a decent life, I'd not think twice about his body size. But in conjunction with his general horribleness as a father and husband, sometimes his weight comes into the picture. It's just so stark a difference between him and his painfully thin and pale children that I find disturbing and problematic.

    Jill did another video today. She must be bored or really in need of that sweet, sweet Plexus cash. I was diagnosed with the flu today and am definitely not in the mood for her screechy voice and shit-eating grin. *She's in the RV and her hair is strangely deflated. It looks better than usual. She spent the whole video wiping at her face and sweeping her hands through her hair. She points out a stain on her shirt and says she didn't bother to change it for the video. Today she wants to talk about "idle words". *Sometimes Jill feels "fuss-trated" and put upon. Sometimes people are mean to her at stores and stuff. Be careful what you say in response to being "fuss-trated". Jill reads some scripture out of a blinged out Bible devotional journal thingy. Jill talks about "worldly things" with obvious disdain, which is ironic as she sits there in her sparkly jewelry, bleached hair, and 20 lbs of makeup. *Jill and daughters were in a store recently and a lady complimented Jill's skirt and asked if it was "Christian Day". And…. I'm not sure why she shared that anecdote as it goes exactly nowhere. *You shouldn't swear or have a dirty mouth. Jill says you shouldn't use idle words like that. Her definition of "idle words" seems pretty fluid. She says she loves Trump (*barf*) but she hates his dirty mouth because it diminishes his testimony. *Jill and her teenage girls love to talk and dream. They are best buds. But sometimes they need to stop talking and get to work if they want to realize their dreams. Only prayer and hard work will do that. People can become poor in spirit and even in wallet if they do nothing but dream. (Coming from a grifter like Jill, this statement...well...it "fuss-trates" me.) *When people are mean to Jill it makes her sad, especially when they are Christians. You should pray for people like that. Jill tells her girls not to use idle words. She keeps saying that idle words "gurgle" out, which sounds really gross. If you see a bratty kid in public, don't say anything about it then; wait till you get home and use it as a learning tool as you gossip about it with your teenagers. *Jill says she uses idle words all the time when she gets mad about stuff, and she should stop doing that. I imagine that she gets mad a *lot*. *Jill hopes this rambling video encourages you.
  11. Random people’s weddings, ladies’ retreats, mom and dad’s anniversary trip... Sounds like every graduating senior’s dream vacation.
  12. I was a skinny minnie gymnast all through my childhood and through college... as few years into my adulthood I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and gained a bunch of weight due to lack of exercise (from pain) and medications. And then last year i had to have an emergency hysterectomy, and so I've gained about 40 pounds since then as well. It sucks. I was anorexic and bulimic all through high school and college, and I find myself resorting back to those behaviors when I'm feeling low, and it is awful. I am trying very hard to love the body I'm in, and thankfully I have a wife who loves me no matter what size jeans I'm in. But I often find myself projecting what I think of myself onto the opinions I think others must have of me. "She thinks I'm huge." "He thinks I'm a worthless fatass." It is a struggle every single day. So, I'm thankful to people who are judgment free, as we never know the inner dialogue someone is having.

    I'm fat. Definitely don't believe in fat shaming. I think it comes up in the JRod threads because David is in such stark contrast to the children, comments about chicken legs, photos of paltry platters of food, and Tim looking so much healthier away from home.

    I think I could argue that. I'm currently pregnant as we speak and right up until a few weeks ago I did not really think of my child as "alive." For a few reasons: 1. All through the 1st trimester, I was aware that around 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. I knew, no matter how excited we were in those first few weeks, it might not be meant to be and could end at any moment. 2. Up until recently, I knew they didn't have a fully developed brain yet, so could not be said to have awareness or thoughts or dreams. That's a big part of what makes something alive in my mind. 2. I knew that should premature labor happen (which was a very real possibility for a long time) they would not likely survive outside my body. Which made it more like an extension of my own life, rather than a separate life. It was/is a part of me until it is ready to sustain itself independently. You can get bogged down with the semantics of 'well, babies can't take care of themselves either' but their organs and brains can at least support their bodies. There's a huge difference between needing to be fed and cared for and needing outside help to sustain blood flow and organ function. To me, it is much like when someone is on life support. Their family can decide to turn off life support and we don't generally call that murder. I think it's great that you felt that way from so early on, but I did not. However, I'm also glad that I did not. I had dangerous complications during this pregnancy. Had things gone poorly we would have lost it. We would have mourned, but it would likely have been harder to cope with if we had thought of it as a whole living person already. We have been very lucky and well cared for and, as a result, I have now come to think of this child as alive in the last few weeks before full term. We knew at 32 weeks and beyond that survival was very likely, and that brain development was beginning to leap forward. That's when I started to feel it was "alive." Before that, it was only the potential for life. In my mind, it's the difference between a caterpillar and a butterfly. There is a potential butterfly there, but it cannot be said to already be a butterfly when it is clearly still a caterpillar. This has been on my mind a lot lately because of my pregnancy complications. I had to have an emergency cerclage placed in the hopes of maintaining the pregnancy. It was a very painful and scary procedure, and there was no guarantee it would work. I did it willingly because this is a wanted pregnancy. But what if I had my complications and decided maybe I didn't want the pregnancy at that point? A horrifying decision and I hope no one is ever in that position, but in a world without access to safe, legal abortions and contraception, it's a position I could easily imagine someone finding themselves in. Would someone like me be forced to undergo this surgery for the sake of an unwanted fetus? It makes me sick to even think about. I also had to have an MRI at one point. There's no proof that it is harmful to the baby, but could something like that be denied to me because someone somewhere, who's never met me or even glanced at my medical history, decided it wasn't worth the risk? I also think some of the problems in the way we frame abortion comes from the idea that death is the worst thing that can happen to a person. Personally, I do not believe that it is. Much worse, in my mind, would have been to give birth too soon to a child that lived its brief life in only pain and suffering before finally dying. That was my biggest fear during this pregnancy. If my choice was between that or terminate, I know unequivocally what my choice would be. It makes me so angry that anyone would try to stand in the way of that choice. The idea of being denied the ability to choose mercy for my own child makes me desperately sad. Editing to add: This post ended up longer than I intended. But like I said, this has been on my mind a lot lately. All that to say, everyone's situations and beliefs are different and I don't think we can, or should dictate such monumental decisions for each other.

    Jill and Trump have so much in common, though! Both of them are SEVERE narcissists whose only interest in their kids seems to be "what can you do for me", both of them somewhat obsessive about the oldest daughter, both live on money they didn't earn, both of them are soooo persecuted. . . Did I miss anything? Oh, yeah. The hair. Really bad hair.

    Keeping in mind that I am extremely science oriented, my definition of "life" begins when the new human becomes separated from the mother's body and can sustain their own life - meaning, the blood has drained from the umbilical cord and that connection to the mother's body/nutrients/support ends and the infant is alive/breathing/heart beating independent of the mother. I am not against interventions at birth to save lives or the medical technology that can keep micro premies alive, however so long as the fetus is attached to the umbilicus, attached to the placenta, attached to the mother's uterus, it is only another part of the woman, growing inside of her body. It is totally and completely her body, and therefore her choice what happens from there. Friendly reminder that pro-choice does not equal pro-abortion. Pro-choice also allows those who believe life begins at conception to make their own choices based on their own wants, needs, and beliefs.

    Jill went live from the state of Georgia. The RV is parked so the Rods can do laundry. The video is the standard "sign up to sell Plexus under meeeeee" spiel, but there were a few highlights: *Jill is wearing the ugliest sequined ball cap and a top/shirt that looks like one I wore in the early 1990's; both are glorious. I think Jill's eye makeup is the heaviest I've ever seen it. *She was scrubbing/scratching at her face, picking at her hair, and diddling with her necklace so much I considered getting my knitting counter and restarting the video to count. I've never seen such a fidgety person, and I have three kids under 10 *My favorite moment was when Jill said she loved someone that was watching the video, then breathlessly followed that statement with how she couldn't wait to meet them someday. Gee, Jilly, that kind of implies your love is pretty damn shallow. Do you love everyone you "know" through facebook? *My husband's favorite moment (as he prepares our dinner pizza) was Jill pronouncing "February." Now he keeps repeating "Febba-ary" to be obnoxious. *Jill has 6 waivers for the Plexus startup fee. Sell to level 2 or what-the-fuck-ever and you'll get to go to a resort with Jill in the fall!!!!!

    Hush, little baby, don't say a word....
  23. Episode 3 – Sleepless in Laredo *TRIGGER WARNING* - previews indicate that there will be a pregnancy announcement TTH 3 dogs run from the front door Inside Jana and Laura are “helping” Jabbie prep for the wedding. They’re building the arbor in the middle of the living room. Jana explains that Laura is “included as one of my sisters”. They’re helping with the wedding and its “sweet” that Jabbie asked her to be a part of the wedding. There’s always pressure but it’s also a lot of fun. Jabbie – the theme is pink, but love is in the air, because I’m a pilot and we’re leaving on an airplane. They’re getting married in Oklahoma. Jana – this will be a challenge because we have to travel. We’ll pack everything into a giant trailer and cars and caravan to Oklahoma. Jer/Jed – we built it with no instructions. Jana had the idea and Jeremiah had the instructions. We are the instruction manual. Jana – Usually my brothers are good with projects, I just have to explain it to them… or I end up finishing it for them. Lauren walks in and side hugs Laura Lauren – I volunteered to do the flowers. I’ve never been in charge before. They finish it… it looks like something from my backyard. I’m wondering how they will get it out of the house. Jana wants to move a piano and benches. They drape more lights and flowers. Jabbie pull up. He says “here’s miss America.” They hold hands with Josiah following them. We’re shown the finished product from too many angles. They like that the flowers look real, but they’re fake. They think they did an excellent job. They joke they should just get a preacher and do it now. Tomorrow they’re flying to Oklahoma to look at the hangar the reception will be in. LAREDO Felicity cries (9:15 PM) Jinger bounces her and swaddles her in a muslin. She bounces her again and she still cries. (Per my experience, that swaddle is WAY too loose…) Jinger bounces her and says that she may want to eat. Jeremy jokes he’ll make her a PBJ. TH – Most of the attention is Jinger’s because she’s breastfeeding. Jessa – I did input, he did output Joy – Austin changed all the diapers for the first month. Sleepless nights were hard. Ben – lots of getting up in the night and being greeted by an interesting smell. Jeremy bounces felicity and says that he doesn’t have the bounce down yet. Jinger – we start the routine 2-3 hours before bed. It makes our lights longer. She bounces her and tells Jeremy that she could have eaten something, maybe that’s why she’s upset. Jeremy yawns Jessa TH – The sleep is hard, you’re used to sleeping 8 hours through the night and you start to feel it pretty fast. 10:53 PM Jeremy – once you hear her sigh she’s out. I used to have a close bond between myself and sleep. Felicity is a barrier, she’s worth it though. 3:55 AM Felicity cries, jinger goes to get her. HOLY LOOSE SWADDLE IN HER FACE. NO!!! She gets up once or twice, it depends on the night. Sometimes they hear her cry when she isn’t crying. Hopefully this phase will ease up in the next 3 years. PART 2 Morning in Laredo 9:30 AM Jinger bounces on an exercise ball with felicity. She gives Jeremy the baby to make him coffee. She isn’t drinking coffee anymore because it was affecting her health, but she may end up slipping some in here and there. Jeremy – coffee is a dear friend. We’ve bonded and you don’t realize how much you appreciate each other. Jinger swaddles Felicity again and bounces on the ball. She discusses how it’s hard not having family around to help with the baby. Jeremy takes her outside. TH – there are so many aspects of fatherhood that are rewarding. She hears my voice and looks. Josiah/Lauren’s house Lauren tells the camera that she’s expecting TH – at 1:30 in the morning we took our one test. Josiah didn’t know what 2 lines meant. They drive to the store to buy more and test. We’re now parents! We are excited. Lauren TH – Siah and I are the only ones who know right now. The kids are making dinner and everyone is coming, my family and the caldwells. My idea to announce is a t shirt. It’s hard to come up with new ideas because they’ve used them. SIah – They’ve announced it every way. Lauren – I wanted something unique (irons shirt) Lauren – I think it will take a little bit and it will be hard to read it. I think the first person to notice will be lily, she’ll know it’s a new shirt. Our plan is to lay low for a while and wear the cardigan covering the shirt. I’ll conveniently take it off and hopefully they’ll read the shirt. PART 3 TTH Bin explains that today they’re going to do math differently, and use a recipe. Michelle is part of the class… which is under the slide. I don’t recognize the girl in the grey shirt. They’re going to take a “field trip” to the store and make 40 servings because family is coming over tonight. Bin TH – A few months ago I started tutoring the kids. I’m still continuing my education, taking some online classes, this is a great job to have now and I enjoy teaching part time. (JOB???) Michelle repeats pretty much what Bin just said, in a baby voice. The J’kids (and others I don’t recognize plus Tyler) don’t look amused. Some of them didn’t even bother to get pencils for their pretend class and God’s miracle child wasn’t blessed with a nice, new, pencil. Looks like she got the short stick Jessa TH – We were homeschooled growing up. My mom was the primary teacher but sometimes a friend would come in to do a science project Flashback to 2001 Bin explains they’re making Tagine-Style Chicken. It’s one of his favorite and it’s a “north African” kind of dish. He tells the class that the recipe is for 4 servings but they need 40. They need to multiply by 10. TH – In the Duggar family, doubling and tripling is essential. Michelle looks on smugly J’kids discuss what they’re favorite subjects are. Josie likes nothing, Jinger doesn’t like math. JD can use a calculator. Jessa lost her math book in 3rd grade but Michelle didn’t notice for several days. She got out of school for a few days. Bin TH – the most challenging part is keeping them focused. J’kids – talk about getting in trouble. They like homeschooling and you don’t have to hop on a bus at 7am. Michelle – Bin is really patient and he stays calm. Bin – the lesson went pretty smooth so we’re going to go to the store and use the math. ADA, OK They pull up at the hangar. Jana, Laura, and Karina are with them. They’re having the reception there because I’m a pilot and she’s a pilot’s bride… and we’re going to have up to 1000 people. Producer – did you think you’d have a wedding with 1000 guests? Abbie – that’s bigger than my town. They discuss that there are no bathrooms in the hangar. They’ll have to get a trailer or port a potties. Jana – it’s challenging not having a bathroom Producer – how many bathrooms do you need if you have 1000 guests? J’kids – all do math and get different numbers. Joy says don’t serve tea. JD – I don’t think there are federal regulations but it gets messy if they don’t do it in the proper place. They talk about where the plane will sit. He tells us AGAIN that he’s a pilot and they will fly away instead of a getaway car. PART 4 They arrive at the store. Bin says he is “tutoring” the kids and they’re at the grocery store to apply what they learned. This is the first field trip but he intends to do more in the future. It’s important for them to see why science and math are important. Bin (wearing sunglasses) marches around the store. Michelle comments that the Turmeric they selected is “organic, YAY!” They head to the produce and the kids are AMAZED at the water spraying on the veggies. It’s like they’ve never been in a supermarket or bought fresh food before… Bin TH – Having a group of kids in the grocery store can be challenging, keeping them focused… the kids want to go and explore and find new things. Jackson – those misting things were so cool. I’d put them over my bed to wake me up. Jessa TH – It was a big privilege to go to a store (flashbacks to Duggar days shopping). Bin tells them to find dried fruit. Bin/Jessa TH – We have our hands full with 2 kids right now. Tyler pushes the cart (he’s featured A LOT in this episode) Jackson messes around with the scale. Bin calls him back. They go to check out and Bin calls it a success. Jordyn is apathetic. She says its “the usual” to cook for 40 people. Back at the TTH they’re greeted (and ignore) a dog. They unpack and head into the kitchen. Bin warns them not to fuck up the measurements. Josie uses her fingers (there was no mention of hand washing). They realize its 6 and guests are coming at 6:30. Jessa suggests the littles go to the other kitchen and start the spices. Jessa blames the littles on slowing things down. Bin dumps a zip loc bag of chicken into the pan and tells Jessa to chop 100 prunes. Jessa explains that they’re going to be late because of Duggar Time. PART 5 TTH The kids finish cooking and dump a bowl of raisins and prunes into the pot. Bin says this was stepping out and hopes it tastes good. Jessa reminds him that the seasoning goes in last and they did it wrong last time too. Lauren and Josiah walk in, we’re reminded that they just found out they’re expecting. They needed to wait for everyone to get there. Josiah TH – it’s really hard to surprise. Kids like Josie ask all the time. Spurgeon wanders in the upper balcony alone. Jessa tells him to come down. Lauren’s mom breastfeeds on the couch. Josiah kisses Lauren. She takes off the cardigan. No one notices… Finally someone asks about the shirt and asks what it says. She reads it to them… they all screech. Her dad walks in and gets excited. Boob wanders over… more screeching. Lauren tells her mom it was so hard to keep it from her because she asks so many questions. They only waited 2 days to tell everyone. (I do not believe that this random dinner just HAPPENED to be at the same time) Boob gets everyone’s attention and Josiah announces they’re expecting. Everyone heads to the serving line to fill their disposable bowls and hot dog plates with chicken. Nothing says “I love and value you” like serving people hot food in paper containers and giving them plastic utensils! Bin says the recipe turned out well and didn’t know there would be a surprise announcement. Jessa – every time one of my younger siblings is expecting it makes me feel old. I keep thinking they’re 15. Joy – I’m so happy, this is something they’re so looking forward to. Josiah – there’s a relief not having to hold it in and hide it. It was the longest 2 days of my life. No "big surprise" other than Lauren is pregnant. They didnt show the shots of people gasping, so I'm guessing thats coming up next week when they say that Jessa is due at the same time. COMING UP NEXT TIME Felicity is back at the birth center to “show off” Discussing poop is normal Jessa, Jana, Kendra, and Lauren are testing cake for the wedding. Lauren cries and the producer asks what happened. FUCK YOU, TLC
