Top Comments: Role Model Edition

by brillig

Photobucket

In the midst of 24/7 exposure on social media to the horrific mess that is admitted child molester Josh Duggar and his felony coverup parents, I read a variety of tweets under the hashtag #TeamDuggar. Much like reading conservative websites or just about any newspaper online comment section, I recommend not doing so. It was vile. One series from a highschool girl gushed on about how this dysfunctional family are her role models and how she desperately wishes she could be a "Duggar girl". The thought of anyone in that family being a role model sickens me, and after a discussion about it with K1, posted as such on social media. A friend commented "Who did you discuss as proper role models?". Good question! Follow me below the orange cloud of radical cult deprogramming after a word from our sponsor...

Top Comments: Keep or Cull Edition

I wrote earlier this year on my commitment to decluttering the house. As with many things, Life gets in the way and sometimes days go by before I go "Oh crap, I need to get back to it!" And I do... more is leaving the house than going in, and new patterns of keeping clutter at bay ARE settling in. But tonight's topic is another type of decluttering... that of the people kind.

As I thought about tonight's topic, I knew I'm in a musical phase. A quick check of diaries past quickly nixed the "Irish/Celtic-themed music" as soooo last year.
