This ridiculous ad on my FB feed this morning might be my wakeup call to take a step back from reading Lori's insanity!

So Ken thinks everything has been rosy and financially easy since World War 2? The US was in a recession when the war ended.  And there have been 11 periods of recession since that one.  
You’d think he would at least be aware of the 2008 one. What a pair of idiots. 
As for lecturing us all to have rainy day funds: never assume you know people’s circumstances, Kenny Boy.  
In mid-February, our refrigerator died.  The day after we ordered and paid for a new one, I had a car accident that left me  unable to work for nearly a month. I have no paid leave.  We had already been through a rainy day prior to this hitting.  We have savings. But it’s going fast.

Lori and Ken have never struggled financially. Her dad gave them the trailer they lived in early in their marriage. The same trailer they flipped for a very healthy profit. They have never worried about not being able to pay bills or worried about how to buy groceries. Both of them need to shut the fuck up.

Also, according to Lori, it isn't any business of a wife's what her husband's decisions are. Telling women who aren't "allowed" to question their husband's spending or saving habits that they should have a rainy day fund is stupid. Unless Lori is insinuating that from their "allowance," the women keep a secret fund? Sound like not putting your trust in the Lord to me!

Hm, if we are to stupid to get the same education as men, why should we be the ones to educate our sons at home? 

There are those who believe that mothers shouldn’t homeschool their sons past a certain age because that would be giving them “unbiblical authority over a man.” :pb_rollseyes:

Ken and Lori are doing a lot of grumbling about this pandemic and stay-at-home guidelines. It’s really starting to irk me from them and other “Christians” who are always whining on social media. They are sewing discontent and it’s not helping anybody. It certainly has nothing to do with being a keeper of the home, which is supposed to be what Lori’s online presence is all about. 
So, I’d like to remind them of these words  

Philippians 4:11-13 

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

I definitely read the name of the company as “Lady Ho” and was really confused until I realized I skipped a letter. I cannot think of a context where those would look “chic.”

About those chaste Elizabethans -- has Lori never read "Othello" -- "your daughter and the Moor are now making the beast with two backs"

Oh wait..., she probably never even heard of Shakespeare. She didn't learn anything in college and doesn't remember any of her classes.

I've always wondered -- if she didn't learn anything in college and she doesn't remember any of her classes -- how was she in anyway qualified to homeshcool her children (for years and years and years she pretends)?

 Last time I checked being a fundie Christian wasn't a qualification for being a teacher.

She's been everlastingly harping on homeschooling again, public schools being cesspools of vice, sin, drugs, sex, curse words, socialist atheist indoctrination, bad company and just all around dens of iniquity.  Imma just gonna say that in my limited experience the worst children in my small town public school were the born again fundies/ preachers' kids.

Drinking (lots of drinking), drugs, sex (lots and lots of sex), married at 16 then a bouncing  8 lb baby seven months later, "visiting relatives" in another state after a weight gain and then coming back a few months later svelte again, mysterious "appendix" operations, knocking up your 2 girlfriends in 2 other towns and denying paternity, hushed up arrests for B&E, drunk driving, petty theft, etc.  These "Christian" kids were out of control yet we non-born again fundies were supposedly the bad influences.

Oh ..... and those bullying mean girls hanging out in the bathrooms who tortured Lori -- born again fundies/ preachers' kids. Preachers' daughters were the worst.

Are there areas where the curve has been flattened? All I see are headlines about higher numbers of infection and the number of deaths. It definitely hasn’t flattened in our area- it’s expected that our peak will be in the next couple of weeks. 

It does look as though Washington state is bending. The last two weeks in March we were averaging more than 300 new cases a day. The most recent two weeks it's averaging around 200 a day, with the trend heading lower. And we're testing more, finally, so maybe the posted results are getting closer to reality. On the other hand, outbreaks are coming to light in meat processing plants in Eastern Washington, where the virus was rare until fairly recently, so we may be getting another bump.

In my county, 80 miles north of Seattle on the I-5 corridor, we've gone from lots of days with new cases in double digits to mostly days with just one or two.

As a state we've been lucky, or maybe "lucky," in a couple of ways. Since we had one of the first cases in the country, and we thought at first that we'd done a fabulous job containing it and contact tracing, we learned early on not to be so overconfident. That one case had actually spread the virus quickly and silently and we were pretty much clueless until it devastated a nursing home.

Another thing is that the Seattle area that has been the worst hit so far is also well supplied with affluent techies who can work from home and aren't as likely to be pushing hard to reopen everything. Not so the rest of the state, but Seattle carries a lot of freight in statewide decision making. Having a Democratic governor and Dem majorities in both houses of the legislature makes it easier to set policy, too.

The governor just reopened some construction work today, as long as it's outside and social distancing is possible. Next up is supposed to be elective medical procedures.

At Christian school a parent told me I couldn’t call their son down in class for behavior because as a woman I had no authority over him. Another parent harassed me for a year with long theological letters saying the same thing which he even applied to my blocking the play if there were boys in the scene.  His son was thoroughly horrified.  And also stopped attending church in college.  That family was like a mini cult. These kids can and do leave.

I thought they were kind of cute - reminded me of those weird Jersey knit capri length wide leg shorts that were super popular in 2005. But definitely not chic, as advertised. More like "comfy, bohemian, for painting"

I went to public schools in a big city so no issues with fundie/preacher kids however the place to really run into that were in the church run schools.  Younger sister was sent to a parochial high school, she came back with a lot of stories.   Shocked my parents who realized that they sent their daughter to a bigger den of iniquity (and paid for the privilege) than the public high school.  

Mr. No attended a parochial elementary school for a time and reported that pastors' kids (or kids of other church big shots) were the worst.

They don't know how it is living paycheck to paycheck and worrying what will happen if something breaks down. Their rainy day fund is not like mine. Theirs is likely managed by a professional made up of different assets using every tax incentive. Mine are two envelopes where I put in every spare cash that I have every month, one for emergencies and one for a new kitchen. But they also don't know the pride and joy by looking how these small amounts grow steadily every month by your own hard work and you start to worry a little less because there is this small nest egg and a car repair or visit to a vet won't be a total financial disaster.

Before or after they have their first wet dream and soil the sheets? Or how do they define the point where a boy becomes a "man"?

@louisa05 Mozart died at 35 of mercury poison, which he took for a syphilis infection he got from one of his mistresses. And Goethe (Lori quoted him once) had long string of mistresses and all of his children to Christiane Vulpius where born out of wedlock. So much for the chaste past.

Or put their money where their mouth is and use their money to help others who aren't so fortunate.

According to DR. Lori the sun kills all viruses including covid. So everyone should go to the beach. Also face masks are a joke and don’t really need to be worn because DR. Lori was hot in hers so she took it off.

this is the best response I saw to Lori’s post about having a bunch of kids so they will be with you in heaven. 
Lori does t do scriptural support for anything. When she tries she doesn’t do it correctly.

The very loudest people shouting about the safety guidelines and the stay-at-home orders are the conservative Christians on my Facebook timeline. They are convinced they are losing their freedoms. One is a preacher. I lost my temper (God forgive me) and told him that I would rather keep people safe than continue to worship at the altar of America.

They are so blind that they have set up the Bill of Rights as their idol which, if I am remembering the 10 Commandments accurately, is one of those "do not do's".

The current pastors' kids I know are good, normal, non-troublemaking people. (One is bi and out, and apparently still totally accepted, so I think parenting makes a big difference.)

However, the ones I went to high school and college with? Every one was super promiscuous, though a few were "technical" virgins. "Technical" meaning open about doing literally everything but PIV. It was crazy, but true.

 

Lori is a lazy, lying sack of slime, IMO. Nobody needs to be listening to a single word she says.
