A Real Disaster defines disaster as

a calamitous event, especially one occurring suddenly and causing great loss of 
life, damage, or hardship, as a flood, airplane crash, or business failure.

I can think of many thing in my lifeime that are without a doubt considered disasters. There have been terrorist attacks, floods, Tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, fires, train wrecks, hurricanes, blizzards, horrific car wrecks.....the list goes on.

On a personal level, we've gone through cancer, sepsis, the death of loved ones, pulmonary embolisms, the pain of losing a child, job loss, homelessness and many other things we considered disastrous to our lives.

But, which public bathroom we are able to use when out and about has not one time presented itself as a disaster; not even a small one.

Bruce Jenner, a grown man who likes to dress up like a woman, has called it a "disaster" that President Trump reversed former President Obama's public school bathroom policy. He said, "This is a disaster." Read the article here

Contrary to what Bruce Jenner thinks, this is not a disaster. This definition of disaster minimizes the real disasters people actually face in life. Bruce Jenner is very privileged. He gets the opportunity to pose all sanctimoniously while defending something stupid while he acts all righteous and firm as though he's standing on something important.

I can tell you one thing for sure: one day he will meet his Maker face to face. Then he will know what a personal disaster really is. 

Be not deceived, God is not mocked. (Galatians 6:7)

Who the Liberal Media Should Fear

There's a lot of fear mongering happening within liberal, mainstream media. I used to watch more of the main stream media than I do now. I cut back mainly because I get tired of the fear mongering. It's a misrepresentation of's essentially spin.....and it's hyperbole, signaled by panic-stricken voice tones that belie the real truth.

Throughout any given day, I check internet sources and see the vast majority of news stories that the main stream media will cover later.....or not. Because I'm reading this news and not listening to it audibly, I can make my own choice about whether it's hyperbole or truly serious. I can look it up for myself. I'm not a lazy news consumer. I won't take your word for it, nor will I take your competitor's word for it. Give me real news and I'll give you my time and attention.

As an average American who is tired of the hyperbole and no longer trusts the main stream media, it's people like me they should fear. The average American who works hard for their money, appreciates their rights and first responds with compassion to their fellow humans are who the main stream media are supposed to be serving.

But, the MSM is turning everything into hyperbole, making every story dramatic, even when it's not. The Trump administration can't make even so much as a typo and the MSM is calling for a "full investigation," wanting to spend my tax dollars on frivolous pursuits while the world lies vulnerable to radical Islamic terrorism.

Enough already. I, for one, am no longer listening to you, MSM. Why should that matter? It should matter because it was you who said Trump didn't have a shot. It was you who thought Clinton had it in the bag. It was your polls that repeatedly - and falsely - reported on what you were sure Americans were thinking.

But, we blew you out of the water. I, a little nobody, saw Trump's win coming all while you were nearly laughing at him from your news desks. My thought was simply, "Well, I hear what they're saying, but they are wrong." I told my husband repeatedly that the polls were wrong....that they were a gross misrepresentation of the truth. I stopped listening to you.

The liberal media underestimated us - average Americans - because they were completely blindsided by what we pulled off right before their eyes. We elected Donald J. Trump and didn't look back.

All your efforts to discredit him, to undermine his work in DC and to malign his family are serving to do one thing: We will make sure he's re-elected in 4 years. We will make sure. You are fueling this, it is we average Americans you should fear because just as we quietly elected President Trump, we will quietly take you down through lack of viewership, trust and commitment to your news casts.

I am, to you, fairly deplorable. To my president, I am important, small as I am. So, keep on your witch hunt where President Trump is concerned and we'll quietly see you again in 2020. You see, we know we don't have to shout or protest in order to cast a vote that counts. We've already quietly done that ........and will again.

I used to have respect for the media. I no longer do.
The liberal, mainstream media should fear the average American voter, deplorable as we may be.

Donn Ketcham is FINALLY Going to Stand Trial

Just this week, WoodTV of Grand Rapids, MI, broke the news that Donn Ketcham, former missionary with ABWE (Association of Baptists for World Evangelism) is going to stand trial for at least one of his many sex crimes against children.

You can read and watch the news report here.

He, through his lawyers, tried to discredit his victim. He tried to invalidate her testimony. He denies what he did to her. She, on the other hand, remembers every detail, right down to what she was wearing that day.

Abusers always try to discredit their victims and invalidate them in one way or another. Always. Ketcham is using the typical abuser tactics and rhetoric. However, it's obvious to some of us.

ABWE is also mentioned in this piece concerning their cover up of Ketcham's crimes, and rightly so. Did you know that ABWE is still covering certain things up? All the men who were supposedly dismissed for their part in the cover up were sent letters giving them emeritus status. Yep. They covered up horrible crimes against children, then were quietly honored with emeritus status, which they apparently still hold. I've asked about this and no one will answer me. They simply don't answer.

Clearly, Donn Ketcham is still not owning what he did, which discredits any remorse he likes to pretend he has. I am so glad the judge in this case found enough evidence from his victim's testimony to move forward with this case.

Justice is finally coming to all his victims.
