Disliked and Dejected

Apparently, I am disliked.  I had no idea.  Know why I was unaware?  Because those who dislike me are chickenshit, cunty, and would rather skate around behind my back than face me head on, and really, that's the part that bothers me.

I didn't realize I was disliked until today when someone decided to treat me as one, huge, ongoing problem, and then this person informed me of the general dislike among peers.  Huh.  Well, excuse the fuck out of me.  Everyone involved should be ashamed of themselves.  Two-faced and backstabby is no way to go through life.

I need to be friends with people who are more like me, only not to the extreme like in that episode where Jerry Seinfeld was dating a girl who was exactly like himself.  Someone a BIT more like me would be nice, though, so I wouldn't have to pretend about everything.  I do so get sick of the smiling, nodding, and trying not to offend anyone when inside I'm screaming for something real.

I hate all the smiling and nodding I have to do in order to try and seem likable.

Today was crushing.  Just crushing.  I'll get over it, but I won't be the same.  I feel sorry for people I meet in the future.  They're going to be rejected without even knowing why before things even get off the ground.

After today, I am just done trying to make friends.  Done.  There is no point.

SB277 Sabotaged

It is with a heavy heart that I return to this forsaken blog, but what I am writing today needs saying.  Californians have screwed themselves and the rest of the nation, and they are too brainwashed to realize it.

Today, I learned that the SB277 referendum was sabotaged.  In case you've been living under a rock, SB277 is the law that mandates forced vaccinations for all children in California in order for them to attend school.  Read more about it here.

Everyone should be outraged by this law, unfortunately "pro-vaxxers" saw it as a way to get everyone else to conform to their way of thinking instead of realizing the magnitude of the government removing a civil liberty.  By the way, it is illegal to interfere with recall and referendum activities. Hopefully the guilty parties will be caught and charged.

The wording of this law is such that any vaccine the government deems necessary for school attendance in the future will have to be administered.  Currently, the vaccine list includes MMR, chicken pox, tetanus, Hepatitis B, just to name a few.  The rest are in the link posted above.

Let's pretend a family is fine with the standard childhood vaccines, but feels the HPV vaccine, or perhaps the flu vaccine, isn't right for them.  Under SB277, if the future government says every child MUST have the Gardisil shot, or a flu shot, or both (or any other vaccines they deem necessary and there are currently 271 new ones in development), in order to attend school, the choice for that family to reject both of those vaccines is now removed.

The law says kids who are homeschooled do not have to get any vaccines.  It also says medical exemptions can be applied in order to remain in public schools.  The problem is, many families cannot afford to have a parent stay home to educate the children and medical exemptions are nearly impossible to obtain even after children suffer horrifying reactions to the vaccines.  The California Constitution says it is the right of every citizen to have a free public education. SB277 removes this right, which means it is not constitutional.

It is also in violation of the Nuremberg Code.

The Nuremberg Code was enacted at the end of WWII.  It stipulates, and I quote,

"1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. 
This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision."

"7. Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death. "

Vaccine injury is skyrocketing due to the sheer amounts of shots our children must receive according to the CDC schedule.  Our government removed the ability to sue pharmaceutical companies for vaccine injuries in 1982, and there have been no safety studies performed to ensure the ingredients in vaccines will not harm anyone, which means, basically, vaccines are experimental.  Read the Nuremberg Code portion of this post again.

Think about how often you have taken your kids to the doctor for a shot, and how often the doctor has allowed you to read the vaccine insert before administering the injection.  I can tell you I've never actually seen one in person, nor was I told of possible side effects, except the children might "be a bit more fussy than usual." When my children had reactions to the vaccines, the doctors said the reactions were "coincidence".  I cannot tell you how many videos I have watched, and how many accounts I have read where parents were told the same thing, and their children, tragically, had more adverse reactions than mine did.

To compensate these parents whose children suffered terribly, life-alertingly, after vaccines, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created.  Since its inception, over $1 billion has been paid.  If vaccines are safe, why has so much money been dispensed?  Sadly, anyone who participates in this program is slapped with a gag order.  This helps ensure that the mythology surrounding the safety of vaccines remains in place.  Adding insult to (vaccine) injury, the cases take, sometimes, years to be resolved, which is in violation of American civil liberties because it denies due process.

Parents are right to question the safety of vaccines.  Many parents, dismissively labeled, "anti-vax," or "pro-disease," are not actually against the idea of vaccinations at all.  They simply want assurance that what medical professionals inject into their children is safe.  There is nothing wrong with questioning and wanting accountability!  Please see the Nuremberg Code portion again.  The problem is, the CDC and the AMA, including Dr. Richard Pan, the creator of SB277, have all gone on record as saying vaccines are safe, and that they do not cause autism, nor autism spectrum disorders.  They have spent lots of money trying to "prove" autism is 100% genetic.

Unfortunately, they have never actually performed safety tests.  Things like motorcycle helmets and seat belts undergo safety testing, and they can be removed, so while laws are in place saying everyone needs to use them, they are still a choice.  Once injected, a shot cannot be removed, so it should undergo the most rigorous of safety tests, and yet, it hasn't.

Speaking of safety and the CDC, you heard about what they did, right?  Taking evidence that vaccines cause autism and throwing it into the garbage can?  Never mind the safety of millions of children is at risk, they took what they had, and instead of saying, "Wait a minute, we need to change these ingredients and change the schedules to ensure everyone's safety," they just tossed it all and covered it up.

Let us examine the ingredients of common childhood vaccines.    Ready?  Aluminum sulfate, bovine tissues, human diploid tissues (tissues from aborted babies---look to the Planned Parenthood videos and scandals for more information on that), calf serum, MSG, formaldehyde, monkey kidney cells, phenol, thimerosal, chick kidney cells, egg albumin, fetal bovine serum, just to name a few.  There are lots of other ingredients, too, that mere humans cannot pronounce.

Here is an article from a chemist about why he doesn't vaccinate his kids.  It's worth reading.

Vegans are often against vaccines due to the animal cells.  Religious people are often against vaccines due to the tissues from aborted babies.  And who wouldn't be?  Would anyone really feel great about injecting the cells of a dead baby into their own, brand new, sweet, innocent gift from God?  Because of the objectionable ingredients, parents should have the choice as to whether or not to inject them into their children.  It should never be a mandate.

Parents should also have the right to discuss a vaccination schedule with their pediatricians and decide a shot schedule based on individual medical histories.  SB277 removes this right, as well, forcing everyone to adhere to the CDC schedule, or else.  Due to individual physiology, vaccines should never be administered in a "one-size-fits-all" method, and yet, they are.  How unfortunate, Dr. Richard Pan didn't take this into consideration when he drafted the bill.  As a doctor, he should have known better.

Pro-vaxxers say that anti-vaxxers should not have the right to make the pro-vax kids sick by not vaccinating.  Well, if their kids are vaccinated, that means they are safe from disease, right?  People do not generally carry around germs for things like whooping cough or polio.  In fact, those who are freshly vaccinated against those things are actually more of a danger to those who are immunocompromised. Some vaccines shed for a month!  This means the newly vaccinated person is a walking incubator and  spreader of disease.

"Well, that's where herd immunity comes in," the pro-vaxxers say.  Herd immunity is a myth.  Dr. Blaylock can explain it better:

That vaccine-induced herd immunity is mostly myth can be proven quite simply. When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population was unprotected for decades.

If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%. Yet, we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50% or less of the population having vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations.
When we examine the scientific literature, we find that for many of the vaccines protective immunity was 30 to 40%, meaning that 70% to 60% of the public has been without vaccine protection. Again, this would mean that with a 30% to 40% vaccine-effectiveness rate combined with the fact that most people lost their immune protection within 2 to 10 year of being vaccinated, most of us were without the magical 95% number needed for herd immunity. This is why vaccine defenders insist the vaccines have 95% effectiveness rates.
- See more at:

Have you heard about the "outbreaks" of disease recently?  Things like whooping cough and measles?  Guess what? Every person who had the diseases had been vaccinated for them.  Guess what else?  No one died.  Another truth--the outbreaks consisted of very few people.  The Disneyland measles outbreak had a ripple effect that included 147 people across 7 states.  How many millions of people live in those 7 states combined?  I'd say it's hardly an outbreak or an epidemic that 147 people were affected.  And again, no one died.

Supposedly, SB277 was enacted because California was below the 92% or 93% vaccination rate needed to ensure the mythological 'herd immunity'.  The truth is, 97% of California's children were vaccinated, making this law completely unnecessary.

Also, a good chunk of Californians supposedly felt the government needs to stay out of everyone's medical business.   Did this poll strike fear in lawmakers and Big Pharma?  Possibly, but it's hard to say.

Let's get back to the point of this post.  There was a movement to get SB277 on the ballot in November, 2016 so everyone could vote on it.  Without it being on the ballot, it will go into law in July, 2016.  As I said before, regardless of where anyone stands on the idea of vaccines, people should be up in arms over  this bill.  As I said earlier, it removes the choice of parents to decide what it best for their own families if they want their kids to remain in public schools.  It removes the choice of parents to decide which vaccines they feel are safe, and which they would like to avoid.  Pro-vaxxers insist everyone needs to get all the vaccines all the time, however, if someone has a family history of being allergic to eggs, for example, it is best to avoid shots that contain egg albumin and egg protein, but as I said, obtaining medical exemptions can be nearly impossible, and SB277 removes the rights of parents to choose a schedule with their pediatricians.

SB277 sets a precedent for the rest of the nation, so California's struggle will soon be everyone else's struggle.  Pro-vaxxers were so enmeshed in spreading their hate of people who do not vaccinate, they forgot to read the fine print.  They didn't see the forest for the trees.  This is about freedom in America, and it would have been nice to have their signatures on these ballots. They don't realize what they've done to themselves, their children, and future generations.

What has happened is that there were signed petitions that were turned in with the front pages ripped off.  This invalidates the signatures on the petitions.  Other petitions have gone completely missing.  If pro-vaxxers would have climbed down from their soapboxes long enough to really look at what this law was saying, instead of hollering, "Just vaccinate your damn kids," from the rooftops, it wouldn't matter that some signatures are missing.  It wouldn't matter that some petitions were invalidated.  There would be enough signatures to make up for the fact that someone deliberately set out to sabotage this movement.

The SB277 Referendum was not about whether or not to inject kids with substances.  It was about retaining freedom of choice, which is one of the foundations of this nation.  Anyone who can't see that is a very sad individual.  The fact that this movement was sabotaged in this way tells me there were  people who were scared it would actually pass and they couldn't afford to let that happen.

Thanks a lot, Californians.  You really blew it this time.

More From TeaParty

Oh, the animals in my Animal Crossing: New Leaf game crack me up.  They can be so lazy sometimes.  Here we have my character, Cupcake, having a common discussion about delivering packages.  Please notice the cast of characters.

Biskit the dog wants me to make a delivery for him.  OK.  Easy enough.  He wants me to make the handoff to Ribbot.  See that robot-y frog?  Guess who that is?  Please note that Sylvia the kangaroo is eavesdropping.  She is a total noseybody, but has no role in this scenario.  Anyway, why couldn't Biskit handle his own delivery since Ribbot was RIGHT THERE?  hahaha

 After the gift, which was a shirt, was given to Ribbot, he decided to get all super pumped and give me a major award.  A BANANA.  Um.  I have bananas growing on the beach.  hahahaha   A BANANA!  He couldn't do better than that?  All the gifts I've sent to him in the mail, and he hands over a BANANA!  So amusing.  And I love how jazzed he is about his gift.  He really thinks he's giving me something special.  "it's all you, money!"  hahaha

Let's talk about Sylvia, now.  She is one of my favorites because she is clearly mentally disturbed.  She's the one from the other Animal Crossing entry who said she likes to take tape and pick up all the lint from her carpets.

She's talking about a sheep in our town named Wendy.  Wendy thought Sylvia didn't have enough furniture.  Sylvia has plenty of furniture, and spends way too much time inside her house doing the cleaning.  She uses tape to get lint off her rug, for Tom Nook's sake!  I should give her a vacuum.

Wendy, by the way, is normal.  I like her, too.  I didn't hear the exchange between the two animals, but Sylvia is paranoid.  She thinks people bury pitfall seeds around her house at night, even when they don't.  hahaha  She's too funny.

Yeah.  So, she's going to become a HOARDER now to prove a point to Wendy?  hahahaha  As if she weren't messed up enough. 

Then, Sylvia came to visit my house:

I realize the house is a bit... not as organized as it should be... but it's only because the house is a work in progress.  I'm still in the process of collecting the furniture I need to complete the rooms.  Sylvia is OBSESSED with cleaning.  The way I see it, she wanted to come over on the spur-of-the-moment.  I'm a big believer in coming over whenever you want if you want to see ME, but if you want to see my HOUSE, you need to make an appointment.  And, if Sylvia thinks my house is cluttered, then SHE can whip out her super industrial sized roll of tape and get to work on the carpets, cob webs, furniture, and whatever else she thinks needs to pass the white glove test.  It's a good thing I find her mental instability so entertaining.

In the above conversation, she told me she had just finished cleaning and rearranging all of her furniture.  I feel sorry for her little joey.  He just sits in her pouch all day long and never gets to come out and play.  All she does is clean house!  hahaha  She cleans and asks me for more pieces of furniture if I happen to see anything I think she'll like.  I'd really like to know how her joey turns out when he's grown.  He'll probably be a total slob and never even bother to change his shirt.  hahaha

Pictures! Argh!

My laptop refuses to speak to Blogger so I cannot use it to fix my lack of pictures.

Using my ipad allows the blog to access photo files that were posted before, however, I cannot scroll around to put the pictures back where they belong.

My next experiment entails using the MacBook to upload again, hopefully in proper places.

EDIT---OK, it works, but it is going to take more time than I've got.  I thank you in advance for your patience.  Please check back on occasion to see if the post you were interested in is fixed.  I will be chipping away at the entire blog over the  coming weeks.

The One About the Lack of Picture-y Goodness

Back in May, someone who wanted to see images of a post I wrote about Animal Crossing left a comment that said she could not see my pictures.  I have no idea what is going on, and apologize.

I have been Googling how to fix the issue and found a YouTube video that said all I needed to do was go to Settings, choose  Other, make sure the feed is set to Full, then save, and PRESTO, problem solved.  I have done this at least five times in a row to no avail.

Let us test THIS post and see if anything shows.

OK.  I have uploaded a sample photo that came installed on my laptop.  It is showing right now, we shall see what happens when POST is smacked about like it owes me money.

Well, this picture works, however, when an older post is viewed, no piccies:

All we get there is grey with a white dash where a pic should be, and I have no idea why, and all that can be said about it is, "AAGGHH!"

There is an option to "upload from blog," and those don't even seem to work.

Dear Teachers of America:

I am taking time out of my busy day to remind you of something that shouldn't need mentioning---if you trash talk your parent volunteers and/or our children, rest assured we WILL find out about it.

Also, if you trash talk your fellow instructors and tell us their personal business, it does not make you look cool and friendly---it makes you look disloyal and as if you have a 'divide and conquer' mentality.  In simple mobster terms, 'never go against the family'.  Present a united front all the time, even if everyone in the cast detests each other in the dressing room.  If parents decide to trash talk a colleague you should deflect the conversation as best you can, unless there is something unethical taking place, in which case, offer to help the parent who may feel lost or afraid to take action, then follow through.

When a parent comes to you with confidential information about her child, such as learning or emotional disabilities, that information is meant to remain confidential so you and the parent can become an educational team to help the student.  For you to break code and blab that information, especially in a negative context paired with, "I would normally care this child's feelings are hurt, but he/she is a crybaby and the smallest tic is the end of his/her world," is unacceptable.

Also, telling another parent you cannot pass a student to the next grade because "everyone" knows the child has learning issues and would never normally advance to the next level is unacceptable, as well as admitting you cannot pass a child because you  did not actually administer assessment testing yourself so you're unaware of the child's abilities and mastery of topics.

For you to fabricate lies about your parent volunteers is unacceptable as well, and yes, we do talk to one another, so we always find out what you are saying.  Always.  Perhaps you WANT us to know what you're saying about us and our kids?  Perhaps you WANT us to report you to the principal?  If this is your goal, what can be said except, "Mission: Accomplished"?

We are not on campus aiding the school and your classroom so you can give us the work you don't want to do because you're too lazy to do it yourself. We should not do your administrative tasks since those are confidential in nature, much like a child's report card.  Besides, how are you really going to know how your students are performing if you don't handle these assessments on your own?  See above paragraph.

Using your "fiercely guarded" personal time with your own children as an excuse not to handle your own workload is also unacceptable.  Your parent volunteers are there to help you, but there is only so much we should do. 

Keeping the children under control, keeping the class noise level to a minimum, keeping kids focused and on task and otherwise acting as authority figures to  them is YOUR job and supposedly what your mentor helped you learn.  YOU are responsible for keeping the environment conducive to learning, and saying you have 32 students and cannot possibly manage your own batch of kids is no excuse. You need to have a system, especially if you've been on the job more than 10 years. 

Other teachers also have 32 students and their classrooms run efficiently.  Other teachers keep their kids in check, and other teachers do  their own administrative work, such as assessment testing.

Another thing--your classroom should be as neat as possible.  I have two kids and my house can sometimes look untidy, so I know how hard it is with 32 mess makers, however, your classroom should never be full of your junk, and bags full of your crafting supplies, your leftover food, half empty chip bags, dirty food storage containers, etc. If a parent comes in and straightens the classroom, your desk, your storage cabinets, etc., you should be on the ball enough to keep it that way.  It should not look like it's never been cleaned the following week when that parent returns.  Just because someone is good at organizing doesn't mean she enjoys it and wants to keep doing it week after week because you have no idea how to put things away.  A tidy, organized room helps the children, believe it or not, because it's good for the environment as a whole, by helping decrease chaos and delays because supplies can be found more easily.  How many times as the class erupted into shouting and noise while you were assisting a parent who needed to find paper clips or glue sticks?  Keep it in its proper place all the time so no one has to ask where it is.

If you see yourself in this blog post, then you need to seriously reconsider how you behave, and maybe even consider a career change.

In the meantime, know that just because other parents aren't saying anything, it does not mean we are being complacent.  We are networking and we are documenting.  We are also reporting you to the principal, to the school board, and in some situations, the unions.

We are also watching out for each other's children to make sure they are being treated fairly, so even though a parent you have been lying about isn't present, rest assured the parents who ARE will be taking mental notes and relaying everything.

Big Sister is here, and she is the parent volunteers you don't appreciate and try to make trouble for.  There are more of us than there are of you, so you'd better toe the line.

New Knitted Towel

I really wanted to make a quick knit over the Christmas holidays so I grabbed some Dishie and made a kitchen towel.  This one is super easy.  Ready?

I invented this pattern because I wanted to knit something I didn't have to think about, and because I wanted something reversible.

What you need:

1 ball of Dishie, or other cotton yarn
1 set of size 7 needles, either straights or circs.

What you do:

Don't worry about gauge so much.  It's a towel.  It can be as small or large as you want.  This one measures roughly 21 1/2" by 19".

Cast on 75 stitches.  Determine if you want to begin with seed or garter stitch and go for it.

Work four ridges in garter stitch, then six rows in seed stitch.  Repeat until you're almost out of yarn, then cast off.

If you notice on my picture below, the very bottom edge has more than six seed stitch rows.  That was the cast on row, and I thought the towel was going to be 100% seed stitch, and then I decided I couldn't do an entire rectangle of just seed, so I switched to the garter rows.

Making the rows really fat, like 8 ridges of garter, and 10 rows of seed, would be interesting, too.

Wash and dry towel a few times to remove cottonseed oil, then enjoy your new, absorbent, functional, beautiful kitchen towel.
