Conservative Women

Tonight as I read a book to my three year old daughter I was thinking about all the influences she would have in her life. Me of course, as well as her Ma and Papa(my parents), and her grandad on her mother's side . I drew a blank after that and it upset me. In about two years she will be going to school and God help us, we live in the very blue County of Edgecombe here in NC. I know there are some good teachers out there but on the other hand some push their liberal agenda even at the kindergarten level. So, by now I am thinking what the heck am I going to do? Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. I have just been introduced to a whole plethera of great,wholesome,and conservative women! Thanks to Twitter I have found a group of conservatives that have given me hope that my daughter will not be alone and will have mentors available to help keep her on the right path. Strong women such as Tabitha Hale , Katy Benningfield ,and all the women of SGP who are heart and soul conservative. These ladies live and breathe the very core of the conservative values I uphold. I know there are a lot more of you out there and I apologize that I didn't list you all. I just want you to know that I am thankful for everyone of you and I do expect that you will be there to teach, to lead and to mentor young ladies,especially my young lady, to walk the walk and to live a life of truth, justice and righteousness. So BLOG on ladies. Keep the truth rolling !

Special thanks to another great conservative lady Decidely Right for the help!

What has happened to the world?

On the way home from work today I decided that I really didn't want to cook as cooking for one is such a pain in the butt sometimes . So I decided to shoot by Hardee's and grab a burger. As I pull in I receive a phone call, so I pull into a parking space. No sooner had I put the truck in park,there was a guy standing at my window. Mind you it is dark at 6 pm now but I didn't think anything of it other than being annoyed that the guy is there. So I roll down the window and ask him," what do you want?"He stares at me like I am the crazy one so I say again," what do you want? I know you want something, now what is it?" I was very rude and annoyed and he knew it but basically didn't care. He then proceeded to ask me if I had three dollars. "No", I say and roll the window back up. I am still on the phone when I realize how rude I was and now see the guy coming back to the window. Oh no, I think. Now my mind is racing and I tell the person on the phone I would call them back. My thoughts are now full on this guy and I roll the window back down and ask him very nicely what he needed. He then asked me if I "needed anything". I politely refused him, backed up and drove through the drive through. I explained the situation to the drive through lady and she did get the manager over . He asked me a couple questions and then walked around the building to see if the guy was still there. He had left, so that was pretty much the end of that. After I leave, I start thinking about what I would have done if he had a gun or if my three year old daughter was with me.This made me mad and the more I think about it the madder I am. What has the world come to where I can't even pull up to a store or restaurant without being accosted or asked for money or someone trying to sell drugs to me? Why can't people stand up and take personal responsiblity ? Get a job,make a living or at least try,for God's sake! I know times are tough but I don't see that as an excuse. If you don't put forth the effort, then there will never be a reward. I know this isn't very likely to happen but I can always hope , can't I?
