Praise The Lard and Pass The Retribution – An Amazon.com Wish List for Sen. Joyce Krawiec

“Praise the lard and pass the retribution
Need a little bit more
Cause this pan needs greasin’
I don’t know where I’ll be ordering’
But it’s arrivin’ on a mail wagon.”

– Apologies to the Dixie Chicks for the small rewrite of “Sin Wagon”

If you remember the now famous tweet from State Sen. Joyce Krawiec, you know that lard has become a hot commodity in North Carolina.

So much so that it was reported in the Winston-Salem Journal‘s website this evening that,

“By Thursday morning, at least 10 boxes of lard had been sent to the Krawiec’s office in Raleigh, according to the Raleigh News & Observer. Many more packages could arrive today thanks to overnight delivery, according to posts on social media” (http://www.journalnow.com/news/local/kernersville-republican-who-insulted-marchers-receives-buckets-of-lard-in/article_426ac698-0541-5a33-9432-a168b36733b7.html).

I would say that such a gesture is priceless, but it’s actually not. Because later in the article it makes reference to a purchase by an individual on Amazon for lard to be sent to the senator.

Several Amazon users commented on different lard products that they had purchased for the senator, including a 64 ounce container of Armour Lard that sells for $16.

One user, ZimZimZimmer, wrote: “I just sent four pounds to (Krawiec’s) Senate Office in Raleigh and couldn’t be more delighted with my purchase! Highly recommend!!!!”

 

Sixteen bucks to make a statement? That’s a deal.

And yes, the reviews for lard on Amazon are really well stated unlike Krawiec’s original tweet.

Another review for another lard product:

But I still can’t really get past the greasy, non-stick apology and explanation that Sen. Krawiec offered in response to the deserved and quite swift reaction to her now-famous twitter.

She also tweeted, ““I apologize. I apologize. I was only talking to those who acted inappropriately. Forgive me, please. Twitter lesson learned.”

Buit who was acting inappropriately according to Krawiec?

Then I found this.

A blog post written by Krawiec on her MouthoftheSouth blog (www.mouthofhesouth.wordpress.com) entitled “FEMINISTS FOR WOMEN’S RIGHT TO CHOOSE. WHO SAYS?

It’s eye-opening and revealing. Here it is. From 2009. Over seven years ago.

You should read it. I have put a copy of her posting at the end of this post, but here are some of the highlights.

  • “Women were told they were used and abused if they “chose” to stay home and answer the highest calling a woman can have, to be a mother and teach and nurture.  This group has even equated motherhood to slavery. “
  • “These organizations, such as National Organization of Women (Now), have been reduced to hypocrisy in the highest sense.”
  • ” These women believe that everything in the workplace is sexual harassment.  That is, unless you are a powerful man who tows the feminist’s line.”
  • The mind is so open, perhaps the brains have tumbled out.”
  •  These liberal women’s groups paint women as being unable to make a decision for themselves on anything except abortion.”
  • These liberal women’s groups paint women as being unable to make a decision for themselves on anything except abortion.”
  • Although, there is a lot of data out there to support the notion that women, very often, “choose”professions that are less demanding and therefore, the pay scale is usually lower.”
  • Most of the mainstream media aren’t really interested in what real women have to say.  They usually feature the radical feminist organizations that have a political and social agenda that fits the media ideology.”
  • Most of us women have been busy taking care of our families, working in our communities and sometimes in our businesses, making the world go round, while these feminists have pretended to make a difference.  They’ve made a difference all right, and it ain’t a pretty sight.”

You can read below in the entire posting what she says about being “pro-choice” and abortion.

And she is entitled to say whatever she wants, but as a public official she puts herself willingly under a microscope, and this has exposed her as someone who seems out of touch with what happened last Saturday as millions of women on all seven continents (yes, Antarctica as well) peacefully demonstrated on women’s roles in society.

More feminists showed up in DC for the march than did people go to the inauguration for Donald Trump, whom Krawiec endorsed even after his famous locker room recording.

It’s simple hypocrisy by a woman who pretends to be a public servant.

And the gifts of lard are appropriate because not only can lard grease a skillet, it can be used as fuel, used to lubricate pieces of machinery, cooking, baking, and even for soap – to wash away the stain of pretense.

And it can also serve as a medicinal balm that can be applied to burned areas that have been scorched by bad tweets and double-standards.

Seems like the senator could use a lot of that lard.

And amazon.com has it for a decent price.

16$!

Or send the senator a Dixie Chicks album. This one is my favorite.

“Soon my husband and I will celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary.  There was a time when that was expected.  You married your true love and lived happily ever after.  Well, you lived together ever after anyway, whether happily or not.  Now, I realize that my husband and I are exceptions to the rule.  We’re special.  He sure is, anyway.

 Today it is too commonplace that families no longer stay together.  The divorce rate is way too high.  I’m not sure if anyone knows what it is. We can all agree, however, just from our personal knowledge, that the figure is way too high.

When I asked my husband why our marriage had lasted, he said, “what, are you crazy?  Why would you ever get rid of someone like me?”  He has a point.

Feminist ideology, which has strayed so far from its original goals, can share some blame for the decline in the traditional American family.  Women were told they were used and abused if they “chose” to stay home and answer the highest calling a woman can have, to be a mother and teach and nurture.  This group has even equated motherhood to slavery.  These feminists are in favor of any form of support, charity, welfare, etc., except a father in the home taking care of the family. Women were told, “do your own thing,” and men were told, “you aren’t responsible, it’s a woman’s choice” (in all matters).

This ideology teaches that the most important goal in life, is personal fulfillment and happiness.  When people are more concerned with their own self-gratification than the family as a unit, the results are inevitable.  Everyone Loses.  A family thrives when the individual units put the family unit as a whole in the priority position and work to make it survive.  Everyone Wins.

 The so-called women’s movement was founded to address some serious issues. It has now strayed so far off base, it has become irrelevant.  These organizations, such as National Organization of Women (Now), have been reduced to hypocrisy in the highest sense.  Their leaders do not speak for most women, yet those are the main voices we hear in the mainstream media stage show.

 These women believe that everything in the workplace is sexual harassment.  That is, unless you are a powerful man who tows the feminist’s line.  For example, say President of the United States who receives sexual favors from a lowly intern. On this issue, I once heard the NOW President speak of keeping an open mind. Perhaps, therein lies the problem. The mind is so open, perhaps the brains have tumbled out.

 These liberal women’s groups paint women as being unable to make a decision for themselves on anything except abortion.  The only reason we could possible make less money than a man is because men are discriminating against us. 

It never occurs to them that it just could be the “choices” we make. Although, there is a lot of data out there to support the notion that women, very often, “choose”professions that are less demanding and therefore, the pay scale is usually lower. It shouldn’t matter to anyone, what jobs women tend to seek, as long as it is her “choice”.

 Why, I wonder, are these women always touted out to speak for women?  I believe they represent only a small minority of women and “women’s issues” are the same issues that are important to all members of the family.  Surprise! Feminists, most women put their family first and want what is best for the unit as a whole.

 I belong to several women’s organizations that has a membership to make the NOW gang look like an afternoon tea party. Strangely enough, with many alternate media organizations now available, these leaders in these groups are finally being asked for opinions on the issues of the day concerning women. Most of the mainstream media aren’t really interested in what real women have to say.  They usually feature the radical feminist organizations that have a political and social agenda that fits the media ideology.

 Leftist women’s groups have preached the virtues of “pro choice” when it comes to abortion.  But when women make decisions regarding their choice of professions to pursue, it just couldn’t possibly be “choice” keeping them on the lower rung of the corporate ladder.

Nor could we little women, who are so suppressed, be allowed to “choose” the schools that those little ones we “choose” to birth and nurture should attend. But that’s for another day and another column.

Most of us women have been busy taking care of our families, working in our communities and sometimes in our businesses, making the world go round, while these feminists have pretended to make a difference.  They’ve made a difference all right, and it ain’t a pretty sight.”
