The Pledge of Allegiance

Published June 12, 2018 by lynn k scott

My sister used to post the Pledge of Allegiance on her Facebook every day.  After reading a post, from a Canadian no less, commenting on our country, it never ceases to amaze me the ignorance of some people.

I consider myself a conservative and I’m REALLY tired of the liberal agenda we’ve had to endure prior to this last election.  While no president is perfect and will never appease everyone, at least Trump is trying.  He’s not setting race relations back to the 1960s, unlike his predecessor did.  He is upholding current laws, holding people and countries accountable and showing respect to our military.  Don’t like how he presents stuff; too bad.  Sorry…not really…but there is nothing wrong with a direct approach to saying what needs to be said.

Just really tired of seeing people wanting to be placated or having an opinion on something that’s none of their business (*cough* Canada).  Today, is one of two days per year, I don’t tolerate anything and I will say whatever I feel needs saying; filter be damned.

I rarely write political posts, but the older I get, the less I give a shit.  I firmly believe liberalism is a disease and should be treated as such.  I’m about to get a bunch of “hug-me-jackets and rent some padded rooms for those who get all bent out of shape and need their “safe” space.

We need to go back to live and let live.  And while the (many) 20-somethings are finding out who they are, they might want to respect their elders and observe a bit before opening their mouths to speak on topics they really have no clue about. NO life is more important than another.  You get what you work for so stop using excuses as to why you don’t have what you think you should.

Will I lose followers?  Perhaps.  Do I care?  Nope!  I know this post makes me sound like a bitch.   I, however, know, and own, my bitch status.  If you don’t like the U.S., turn off social media (if not in the U.S.) or feel free to leave from any airport or nautical port.  Either way, I’m an American and I’m proud of it!

Breastfeeding

Published January 19, 2016 by lynn k scott

Reblog:  Originally posted on, A Momma’s View.

I’ve had conversations about this very topic with a lot of people.  I have several breastfeeding mom friends.  They go through an awful time when they are in public.

I shared this blog post because one, I have seen and I LOVE the bad-ass breastfeeding momma in the picture.

I also want to say, if you have a problem with a mother, in the USA, breastfeeding her child, please note:

  • What you would do in her situation is irrelevant (nurse in the car, use a blanket, seek out a discreet location).
  • You DO NOT have a right to intimidate the mother and make her feel wrong about nursing in public because your beliefs, upbringing or whatever else doesn’t agree with her decision doesn’t count.
  • Know it’s a Federal law and breastfeeding women are a protected class; including in the work-place.
  • If you’re worried about your young children witnessing breastfeeding, use it as a teaching opportunity that this is how mammals (including humans) feed their children and it’s OK.
  • If you still have a problem with it, Shut-up or Get up (and leave the area-quietly)

I support those mothers who acknowledge their children need to eat and do the responsible thing and feed them, when they need to be fed; on the child’s schedule, not the public’s.

I seriously wonder what’s wrong with people. Why is it a problem to breastfeed in public? Why do people get offended by it? If you don’t want to see it then just don’t look! Turn your head and don’t look!

It’s the most natural thing in life. I don’t believe that mothers want to shock people, that they want to find a way to show their boobs. They just feed their babies.

Why do you think people feel offended by public breastfeeding?
