How much more disrespectful can you be?

More politically correct nonsense, now from the fashion world. Chanel did a show for its pre-fall collection in Texas. The theme of the collection is south-western with a Native American feel to it. They had the audacity to use headdresses as part of the finale of the show.
Heaven forbid do something that shows of the beauty of the Native American culture. Then you are, at best, insensitive and probably racist too.
When you look at the clothes that they were showing you can clearly see a Native American flair to them. Personally, while I wouldn’t wear the pieces with the fringes on them, just not my style, they are quite beautiful and obviously well crafted pieces. But of course with the hypersensitive culture we live in, the demands for apologies abound.
Chanel has issued a statement:
“Native Americans are an integral part of Texas’ rich history and culture and the feather headdress, a symbol of strength and bravery, is one of the most visually stunning examples of creativity and craftsmanship. We deeply apologize if it has been misinterpreted or is seen as offensive as it was really meant to be a tribute to the beauty of craftsmanship.”
This constant need that some have to turn everything into a conversation about race really needs to stop. The word has lost its true meaning at this point. People should be very concerned about that because when real cases of it come up, people will not take them as seriously as they should.
Take a look at some of the photos and you can see for yourselves that nothing was meant as disrespect to Native American culture. They were simply doing what fashion houses do at fashion shows, making the outfits over the top.
A server from New Jersey became a nationwide sensation after claiming she wasn’t tipped because she is gay. How exactly the family is supposed to know if someone is gay or not just by looking at them is beyond me, especially in the world of metro sexual men. But she put a receipt out on social media that showed no tip left on a $93 tab along with a note saying they couldn’t tip due to her lifestyle. She has been getting donations pouring in from all over the country and become sort of like a folk hero for donating some of her windfall to The Wounded Warrior Project.
A family has come forward with a receipt that matches the one that Ms. Morales has been showing off, the problem is that their receipt has not “hateful” note but does include a tip. Actually quite a nice one, $18, close to 20%. The family also has a copy of their visa bill that shows that a charge at that restaurant for that date with the dollar amount that matches the tab plus the tip.
The woman in question said she believes that it started out as a misunderstanding that she thought the hostess told her that her server was named Dan and said
“whoa, you’re not Dan.”
The server story is slightly different:
“oh I thought you were gonna say your name is Dan. You sure surprised us!”
The family decided to come forward because the story didn’t seem to be going away. I am glad that they did come forward because this young woman is profiting off a lie that she is somehow a victim of bias and hate.
“I just felt like people have a right to know that — it’s fine if people want to donate to her or to the Wounded Warriors, but they’re doing it under a false pretense,”
One would think that this young woman has some sort of agenda. Whatever could that be?
It is a very sick world we are living in. NBA star J.J. Reddick apparently got his model girlfriend pregnant in his rookie year in the NBA. So what do people who have lots of money and fame do in this situation? Get a lawyer of course.
Apparently the two were dating, or at least sleeping together, and broke up. Shortly after the break up she discovers she is pregnant and wants to terminate the pregnancy. In return for terminating the pregnancy he agrees to start dating her again for a period of one year. In case he decides in less than one year that the relationship isn’t working, he can end the relationship once he gives written notice, and of course a check for $25K. Now, if either party decides to try to contact the other after the relationships ends, it will be legally considered stalking and arrests could be made.
It is a brave new world we live in isn’t it? People wonder why we don’t look at life as being something of value anymore.
Another issue here is why would want to date someone who would agree to this? It is bizarre in every way.

What in heaven’s name was this young woman thinking? Seriously, I also would like to know who sold her this dress. If I owned a business selling wedding dresses, I would let the small amount of profit go by the wayside, would you ever shop at the store that sold this?
A mother in Canada has taken her own nuttiness a tad too far. Donna Giustizia, a mom of two is trying to get all the oak trees near her child’s school removed because of nut allergies. The school itself is nut free (which was mistake number one) but the school property gets acorns from the surrounding trees. Her solution is to remove all the oak trees in the area.
Now this from the director of Allergies and Asthma at New York University Hospital
“There’s no relationship between acorns and peanuts,” Bassett said. “If people have food allergies, they need to work with an allergists on prevention, avoidance and preparedness. People with food allergies need to be careful and have a plan.”
But this mother doesn’t appear to be willing to give up. She also says:
She appeared before the Vaughan, Ontario, City Council last week to plead for the removal of the trees, saying : “The acorns are not only presenting a risk to the tree-nut-allergic students, but it is also becoming a great cause of anxiety among all students with nut allergies.” Giustizia also said, according to The Star, that “acorns can also be used to bully and torment children.
Luckily, she isn’t suggesting that entire town cut down their oak trees, just the area near her child’s school.
So, the school system is preparing a report to address her issues. For what purpose is beyond me. There is no scientific link between acorns and human allergies to nuts. So this school system is going to use limited resources and funds to research a problem that doesn’t exist all to please one over protective zealous mother that doesn’t have any idea of what she is talking about. What I find so comical about her testimony is that she already prepared an alternative reason for getting rid of the acorns, as they are a bullying tool.
If I were sitting on this school board I would be telling this mother to take those acorns and stuff them where the sun doesn’t shine and I would charge her for the time that she wasted. I am sick to death of people taking their obscure and often wrong ideas and expecting the entire world to bow down to what they want. No child is going to die due to being near an acorn. Get over yourself lady.

After looking at this, can there be any doubt why we have allowed the government to get this much in debt? Truly, people are idiots. How can you live in section 8 housing and say that you don’t take government benefits?

The very sad saga of Octomom continues. She has filed for bankruptcy which shows she is about $1 million in the hole and her house is scheduled to be auctioned off on Monday. She and her 14 children are living off welfare, food stamps, and credit. That still isn’t enough to pay the bills for 14 children even though she received money for posing topless several months back.
She is considering porn as a way to make ends meet. Although, she is asking that it be a one woman show. How exactly that will be all that exciting I am not sure. The problem is that Octomom expected to gain fame and fortune from having 8 babies at once. It didn’t seem to occur to her that already having six and adding eight more constituted a great deal of work, especially on a single parent such as herself.
She has brought into the world, by artificial means 14 children without any idea of how to care for them, let alone how to support them. The very sad part is that it puts the state in a very difficult situation. The states do everything that they possibly can in order to keep families together, even when they end up in the foster care system. It will be next to impossible for California to find one home for all of these children. So these kids are likely to be separated at some point; and I would venture to say it won’t be in the all that distance future.
At this point she just looking to make some money off these children:
“She is not interested in having any filming or doing any interviews of any sort, especially entering her home and filming her kids for no compensation,”
She seems to more than willing to pimp these poor children in front of the cameras as a way to make money and keep up the illusion that she is not completely government dependent for her every need. She used welfare money to pay for her in-vitro babies expecting that would be her way off of welfare. People wonder why conservatives say that welfare is trap. Sadly, this time it has ensnared 14 innocent children who had no say in all the bad choices made by their OctoMom.
Maggie over at Maggie’s Notebook made me aware of some hacking issues that I am experiencing as of late. She has gotten some rather lengthy and not very nice comments using my blog’s name. I didn’t write them.
So, if anyone else is getting these from “Just A Conservative Girl” I apologize in advance. There are not from me. They are using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org as the email address. That is not my email, nor do I use the one that is listed on the side of the blog as a contact when I comment. So if either of those email addresses are coming up with comments, they are from someone else.
I had gotten an email with a long letter attached about Newt and Muslims and some other disjointed messages asking me to have the courage to print it. I wrote back to the person that if they want their opinion out there, they should write their own blog. This person may be the culprit.
So again, I apologize if there are any nasty comments out there. I assume the person will get bored and move on at some point or find another target to get out their obvious anger.
Thanks Maggie for letting me know. I apologize your spam filter got filled up with this hate.
