TRY MAKING LEMONADE

lemons

Poor Joe has been dealt a lemon.  He tries to make lemonade with mixed reviews!  Not enough apology, too much apology, didn’t say I’m sorry,  too much sugar, he said I’m sorry but for the wrong reason….

I’ll just jump into this Joe Biden fray.  I am not a Joe Biden fan; in fact, I think he gained his fame by being a  go-fer.  He got where he is by being a “yes” man and saying dopey things that no body took seriously (his being a Democrat and all that).  His standing up to defend the USA is not my hope.  Be like sending a chicken to the fox den.  After she lays the egg all negotiations are over.

However… Out of the woodwork come the ladies who have “felt uncomfortable” with his hand-on approach.

Now let me state I would not have liked it!  It is far to “hands on” for me.  But someone should have told the poor guy forty or fifty years ago, “keep your hands to yourself, Buddy.”  Poor ole Joe just thought he was spreading a bit of love around – you know the kind “let’s make love, not war.”  It did not dawn on him that some people are not smitten with “handsome, fame, and power” deigning to whisper in their ear making them “queen for the day” with a snuggle to the neck and a kiss on the head.    The Duke and the Commoner.

Now back to the ladies (?).  So he made you “uncomfortable?”  I remember being uncomfortable one time in high school when a “juvie” stuck a porn picture in front of my face, in class.  I couldn’t have made a scene even if I would have.  Of course, I would not.

Here is where the feminists are right.  I should have stood up, asked the teacher permission to go to the principal to handle a personal emergency.  I bet “juvie” would have stewed in his own pot for a bit!

However, I think it would have been wrong to bring it up even a year later – let alone ten, twenty, thirty…  People change!  Even onery ones sometimes turn out to be quite nice gentlemen!  Poor Joe.

I am fed up with the women who seemingly (according to them) suffer in silence until the perfect day of revenge, which is always when the political cause needs them.  If their male victim is a Democrat he will likely survive – notice how quickly Virginia’s scandal has disappeared.   If he is a Republican – rarely.  Where, by the way, is Judge Roy Miller, a Republican judged guilty because of political expediency?  The deciding vote is generally cast by the news media whose reputation for truth and fairness is not notable!

Women, if you are hurting from unjust treatment in the past, go tell somebody today!  Don’t wait for the time someone might be willing to buy your story from you.  Quite likely you, like I, have put it in your “stupidity” file, forgiven the creep, and lived to see the day he has matured and contributed something good to the world.  Most of you are not holding out for “Is The Price Right.”

Now back to uncomfortable.  A good number of you women over fifteen years of age know you are making a guy “uncomfortable” when you are wearing high-lift- bras with cut-to-the-navel necklines.  You finally understand your biology teacher, you enjoy having bait on the hook, and you enjoy watching the worm squirm.

Imagine this scenario:  You, a woman, have been years now doing good, making wise choices, taking responsibility, and paying your own bills.  Now you have been selected as a nominee as first woman Mayor of your small city!  Looking good.  However, one of those guys you made “uncomfortable” when you were seventeen, comes out of the closet and charges you with making him uncomfortable.  Come on now, who’s the victim!  Who gets sneered at?  Honest, now, do you want equality?

Well, at least you will have the media on your side seeing as how you  are “woman” – a diversity victim!  Poor Joe, no diversity.  Even “dopes” are not recognized as a diversity group.

****************

I will, maybe, be back with the squirming worm later. See if I can get him free from the hook without too much damage.  😀

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. I mean really….just a little more craziness to go around in our crazy, lost its mind, culture!!!!
    #iditos!!!

      New fresh crop of nuts provided daily. Sec’y Neilson resigned today – a rousing cry about there’s going to be trouble if anyone gives her a job. What! I thought we were supposed to be fussing about people who employ illegals! Not American citizens! Hard to believe.

  2. Salvageable says:

    I greatly appreciate your approach to this topic.
    But a word about the title: I don’t know who started it, but I really like this saying–“When life gives you lemons, throw them back at life and demand chocolate.” J.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Yes, I like that. But i sure like lemonade, nice fresh lemons with sugar not sweetener. I’m tempted to go make some. But I might not make it past the chocolate aisle. 😀

  3. Haha! Great point. “What’s sauce for the goose … ” Oops. Poor choice of words. Hope I didn’t make anyone uncomfortable.

    American Politics if possible is more screwed up than Australian and we are hitting rock bottom as far as integrity is concerned. Voting for a ‘party’ instead of the individual who is representing your area can be an insane decision. Criteria circulating here is 1. Are they connected to the U.N? Do they put UN policies above the policies of their nation? (then ask them why?)2. Do they support Israel?3. Do they support the down and out and the struggling or just the big boys at the big end of town? 4. What are their personal ethics…..Christian or pagan in nature?. Yes I love the comment above. When life gives you lemons throw back and ask for chocolate. Hope it works in OZ.

    So are you worried about any can of worms coming out during your bid to topple Trump?

    • oneta hayes says:

      President Trump is still producing good things. Unbelievable how he is hated! But in answer to your question, yes there will be continual worms thrown out to topple the president. Nite, I’m shutting up shop as soon as I answer these comments.

      • pranabaxom says:

        Including spewing hatred and lies.

        • oneta hayes says:

          Half the country loves him. And lies? I haven’t been pointed to anything of much significance yet. Those who have said he has lied 2000 time probably count the 1500 times he said he had not colluded with Russia. How did that turn out? Oh, I understand, it hasn’t turned out yet. 😀

          • pranabaxom says:

            Audited tax return to be released for one thing.

            • oneta hayes says:

              Yes, we have a new issue since Russia-Gate has fizzled. Tax returns? The last I heard was that he wasn’t going to release them. What difference would it make to you. You would only have more gripes about things that have nothing to do with his success as a leader for our country. Whatever his tax returns, they must have passed IRS, so your complaint should be with them and congress. But – no, that’s not who we are gunning for, is it? Of course, maybe he was a Democrat so it was easier to slip by. IRS was busy auditing conservatives. Did you notice any of that scandal? 😀 I let you have the last word on some of your comments because there was no more room on my theme.

              • pranabaxom says:

                Russia Gate? Not fizzled yet (though I am sure you wish) just as for Trump, Hillary or birther is not finished yet.

              • pranabaxom says:

                As far as I remember, IRS was found to be auditing both conservative and liberal organizations.

              • pranabaxom says:

                As far as law of the land is concerned, he is the elected president. I have no qualms about that. Also by the laws of the land, I should have the freedom to criticize him as you should have the freedom to criticize pro choice policy or advocate pro life policy.
                And even with a Me Too movement, I will give you a hug (with your permission of course) when you are on your campaign trail😂

  6. Very good! Thank you for posting. 🙂
