Roseanne Barr for President

You know, I may just write her in! Legalize pot. Forgive student loans. Forgive American debt. Grow nuts for protein to solve world hunger. Outlaw Bullshit. Embrace Matriarchy.

Sounds better to me than anyone else I’ve heard. Here’s a small quote:

“Women, let’s stop propping up bullshit and reflecting it back at twice its size!! Let’s drop out big time and stop buying things!  Let’s plant gardens.  Let’s not buy in, let’s get real.
Let’s take back the real estate between our ears and get green like a son of a bitch!
Let’s start our own schools and teach our kids to heal the world and not destroy it.  Let’s help each other first for once, before we help men or their gods!  Let’s be selfish for our own sake and theirs, just this once.  I know the thought of that seems blasphemous and horrific, but we have to do it!”

She’s irreverant and off the wall and pissy as usual – but some good ideas are better than no good ideas.

Really, I’m tired. I’ve stretched dollars till they scream. I’m selling our things. I am holding on. I still smile. I’m angry. I cry. I laugh at stupid stuff. I’m doing everything I know how to do without killing my pets, or my husband. When people tell me they are gonna do something, I need them to keep their word. I have momentary “rises in reaction” to people I love and they don’t mean I love you less. It just means I’m tired. If it weren’t for the fact we’ll be cold, I’d be calling the fall and winter to us so I can crawl inside my personal cave and hide for a while. I need it. The self nurturing time women need so badly as they cycle is practically non-existant when you are clawing to survive.

My son is selling his games on Ebay so he can have a new one to play. He’s an amazing teen. His front tooth has a huge cavity that he swears doesn’t hurt and I can’t get it fixed. I applied for peachcare but the system isn’t straightforward and I can’t figure out how to get it into place for us. I haven’t had generations of using the benefits to guide me through figuring out welfare. The offices don’t make it easy either. They are swamped and there are years of backlog because so many are in the line ahead of me. My dyslexia and problem with numbers isn’t helping either. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO IT!

I am tired.

About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.
