Hey, "Giuliana and Bill", 'Carry' On!
If you have been reading my blog posts for any length of time now, you know a little bit about me. In case you are new, I'll give you a brief introduction: I'm a conservative mom who home schools her children. I am a precinct chairman for my precinct, I serve on some committees for the local Republican part, in other words, a bad ass in every sense of the word. I believe that the government should stay out of the private sector, no meddling or spying or snooping or monitoring private lives and cell phone calls, etc.
With all of the things I mentioned, I think it goes without saying that I am for the second amendment, you know, the amendment to the U.S. Constitution saying that citizens have the right to keep and bear arms and that right shall not be infringed upon. I'm not sure how much clearer our founders could have been about that particular right. Hell, there's a lot that I thought was pretty clear in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, yet here we are as a nation saddled with a mountain of debt and the unconstitutional Obamacare looming on the horizon. Not only that, we have women that want to murder their unborn children all the way up until their due date and those same women are self-professed feminists who want to be empowered to have a career and a family and the right to choose.
Those are the same people who are advocating that if a woman is being raped or molested, they should pee on themselves or vomit on command. No, that does not say 'victim' at all. Those are the same group of people who idolize Wendy Davis, the democrat who is now running for Governor of Texas, who is supposed to be such a strong, independent woman. The same woman who we also found out, relied on her ex-husband to foot the bill for law school and, who immediately hit the road once the bill was paid. Oh, yeah, real independent.
I don't know if any of you have heard of the show on the E! Network called Giuliana and Bill. It's a pretty fluffy show and it's all manufactured drama, just like all of the other reality TV shows out there. I had it on as background noise while folding the clothes and I keyed in on something that really disturbed me. So, the set up was that Giuliana is afraid of staying alone at the couple's home in California. She decided a way to remedy the situation was to protect herself and get a gun to keep by her bedside. So far, so good, right? Well, Bill decided that he wasn't going to stand for that. In an effort to help her decide NOT to get a gun, he took her to a local gun store with a range inside.
She picked a gun to shoot and they went to the range for practice. While she's in there, she's jumping every time there's a bullet being fired. She fired the gun a few times and didn't seem to hate it, but after they left the store (empty handed, of course) she confesses she has a fear of guns and was really scared in the gun range. Then, her husband Bill, 'pats her on the head' and says something equally ridiculous like, "Oh, honey, guns should be in the hands of professionals, like the police or the military." Really?!?
I thought you and your kind were all about empowering women! But...but...I thought women should be strong and courageous! I thought the conservative movement was the one with a war on women and was the one who wanted women to be kept barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen making sammiches for her man.
Yeah, 'carry' on, Giuliana and Bill, 'carry' on.
