It’s me, Uppity! (Blows dust off self, coughs)
It seems that the 2016 election narrative is heating up already. After all, the press bobble-heads are so very anxious, aren’t they? Why, it won’t be long before the Hillary Nutcracker goes on sale again! And how about that bloo dress!
And what about those millions, I say millions of deleted emails from private servers! Oh wait! That was George Bush, Karl Rove and and Dick Cheney over at gwb43.com. Wrong private server. Sorry!
And Hillary hasn’t even announced yet!
One quadruple bypass surgery, 3 transfusions from complete strangers, one dead kidney, two failed grafts, three hospitalizations and one stent later, I am still standing strong. Just in time to fight for Hillary! Doesn’t that just fry my detractors’ ice?
These events in my life in a short period of six months have made me less apt to be patient with idiocy for some reason. I am impervious to threats these days as I have already cheated death once. I had my chest cracked open and put back together with stainless steel wires, and I walked out of the hospital in five days with no pain killers. I tell you this just so you know that any crap you can toss at me is nothing compared to what I’ve seen. So I figured I had best take the time to explain to newbees (or living fragments from 2008) who are passing through what this place is all about — you know, nip things in the bud. So excuse me if I am blunt as life is too short to placate rude blog-war-mongering fools. Recent visits from the CDS Zoo to this blog have convinced me that it is “Time” for this post.
For starters, this is a blog, not a democratic government. Blogs are not democracies. The rules of blogs are set by blog owners and moderators, the people who, you know, actually do the work. This blog is like our living room. Would you show up uninvited at someone’s home and do what you can to ruin the evening? Then why would you be so rude as to do that on a person’s blog? That is why Moderator Kitteh Bill is officially on board again to moderate your miserable butt!
So, newbees and leftovers from 2008, when you arrive here, you will find that this blog has two major purposes and you should bear that in mind:
1. This is a pro-Hillary blog. If you intend to come here to threaten us ala 2008 or to trash Hillary Clinton, please know that your ass will be kicked out of here before you ever make it to a published comment. Take it someplace else. Please also know that we are experienced. We can smell a Concern Troll at 100 paces. Dishonorable mention also goes out to those of you who pretend that “I was a Hillary supporter, but now [Fill in the blank]”. You have been warned.
2. This is a Second Wave Feminist, pro-women’s rights blog. Some of us stood in the rain and snow so half the country wouldn’t have to spend their lives getting coffee for mediocre bosses whose only qualifications are penises. So we are pretty adept at standing up for our own. We don’t argue our rights doing flash mob dances to “9 To 5″ and shaking our asses. We do it with the figurative torches and pitchforks. We are not afraid to break a fingernail. We will give no free passes to sexism or misogyny regardless of which pathetic, hypocritical major political party or Cable channel it hails from. We will not be placed on the back burner. Nor will we water our time down supporting other causes that, in turn, never reciprocate on our behalf. On this blog, women’s rights are Numero Uno! We believe women have the same rights as men and that they shouldn’t be “decided upon and legislated” (See Republicans) or “doled out” (See Democrats) by men, If that bothers you, hit the road now before we are inclined to help you hit the road. So take your “Radical Feminism” babble elsewhere. There is nothing “Radical” about demanding the same rights as less than half the country. If you have a problem with that, it’s your problem, not ours. So go deal with your problem,. You are not welcome here.
You know who you are. So why don’t you just hit the road now and avoid the rush?
I hope I have made things clear for you. If I haven’t, then please join DENSA. I’m sure you’ll pass the test with flying colors.
Love and kisses, Uppity (and the wonderful people who have kept this blog going out of sheer camaraderie).
