Fundie paranoia about Boston and public school

Recommended Posts

So I have been trolling around FB and their blogs. The whole lot of them are friends on FB, the Servens, Coughlans, Bradricks, MacDonalds, etc.

They are truly paranoid people. I would have thought that they would have been rejoicing that the terrorists appear to be Muslim and it was an attack. Instead it is proof that Obama is going to take over the country since Boston was on lockdown, people's freedoms are being infringed upon due to the lockdown, it may have been a "false flag", and of course gun control. I had no idea that they were such conspiracy theorists. I mean do they not see how they sound like the 9/11 ones?

Their paranoia about public school makes me laugh as a teacher. I called them out on it on Generation Cedar's blog and was told that it isn't me as a teacher it is the system. Um okay.

Let's look at their track record for homeschooling: Deanna Coghlan: works at Dairy Queen, married at 19

Benjamin Serven: valet, Botkin children: not sure.....Not to insult those jobs, I have WORKED those jobs however I became a teacher. What is their goal for homeschooling? To not have a real job with benefits, insurance, upward mobility?

What do you all think?

I have a large number of friends who are very conservative, thought not to my knowledge, fundie. My conclusion is they view the world more in black/white (right/wrong, good/bad) absolutes rather than shades of grey. They are subject to being guided by fear -- have to have guns to defend ourselves from all the bad guys in the world, alarm systems, etc. -- fear which is constantly being reinforced by the media outlets they watch. Fundies are probably like this x 10,000.

Half of them probably are. I'm pretty sure ZsuZsu is, for instance.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
