18WT 015: In today’s
Episode after a few jokes, and laughter, Janet asks Patrick “what does it mean
to you to be an American? Janet tells
Patrick, you know, some people call that “home grown, born and bred right here
in the good ‘ol U.S. of A. you know, America.
Patrick responds with “MERICA” as some like to say.
are those that would describe that as Patriotic. And there are those that would
describe that as Traitorous, don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord
split ya. This immediately brings up
talk of the border, the illegals, the homeless.
Janet heard that in San Diego they emptied out a stadium of homeless
people to let immigrants live there.
However, it is children, what do you do when it is children? In St. Louis, the news showed some men came
to the border and dropped two young children over the border wall and ran
away. How do you leave your children and
run away? Janet cannot fathom that.
Janet discuss how you will do anything to better your child’s life. But they throw in some jokes at the expense
of Kyle, of course. And this turns
briefly to the term “step-monster”.
track after some singing…the border and America. They both believe you can come here legally
and be an American. Then Patrick
rewinds, briefly and they go over “the rules” again. Born here, you are an American; came here,
passed the test, you are an American.
Here illegally, go home.
election, when you are saying you are leaving, Janet says leave and quit
talking about it. Patrick argues her
bringing up election, but she dips her toe in it anyway.
up that these are big stars that do all of this “I am leaving” talk.
There is a
brief pause for Patrick to fix a shirt that turned. This brought up the fact that we have created
three t-shirts to help support Breast Cancer Awareness. 50% of the profits between now and the end of
October from these three shirts will go towards Breast Cancer Awareness. This of course makes Patrick bring up
tits. We also have a giveaway, be sure
and vote to win!
If you are
interested in being on our show, email Patrick to be on our show. We loved talking to Paul from N.Y. He works for the post office and gave them
some information. He was keeping them
laughing. He is proof that there are
nice postal workers.
Be sure and

As they get
back on track, Janet mentions that they (the loud people) seem to believe that
if you are not screaming you are not active, not American. You are either part of the problem or part of
the solution. Quiet equals part of the
problem in some eyes.
interrupts her to talk about no longer wanting to be called Caucasian, he now
wants to be called Saltine. Janet
mentions that he is far from saltine, he is more like a Ritz cracker, she is
the whiter person, more like a Saltine.
But their pug Frankie, she thinks he is bacon. This brings up more white jokes about Janet,
she is the whitest person they know.
like Janet believe that no matter what race, color, financial status, religion,
or sexual orientation. I think that is all the variables. We all seem to agree
that the world, not just the United States, is a hard place right now. There is
a lot of crime, a lot of good people who die for the wrong reasons (is there
ever a right reason?). However, standing up and screaming about it isn’t the
answer. There are people who do not deserve the wealth that they have and
people who have nothing to give that give it all anyway.
standing on the corner with a sign does not equal patriotism in Janet’s eyes. Then Patrick brings up guns, Janet likes guns
and being a girl. This of course changes
the subject again.
Our right to
speech, to our opinion is here on the podcast.
When we look at our friends, we just see our friends. Neither one of them understand the way people
are now with the desire or need to identify people by race, sexual orientation,
religion, or whatever when we speak of them.
instance, when we get past our partially black grandchild, that we do not say,
this is our beautiful partially black grandchild. Or our black friend, or Janet’s half Hawaiian
half Taiwanese girlfriend, or Jewish girlfriends, all they see are friends. They don’t see the need to identify them by
anything other than friends. They
brought up race and religion, Only for this conversation.
changes to the energy of children briefly.
both raised to see people as people.
Janet says she thinks that the problem is that the bad people are vocal
about their beliefs. The good people are
the silent majority. The good people do
not care about race, color, financial status, religion, or sexual orientation. Janet’s sister was a good person, she was the
type that never had two nickels to rub together. But she always had a meal to share and room
to help, even if it was just space on her floor for a few days. We are the type
that help people out.
Yet, we know
people who are filthy rich who if we went to and said we need a meal or a place
to sleep for a night, they would refer them to the welfare system. They would say not my monkey not my circus.
majority are the good people in Janet’s opinion. The people that just live life, enjoy
friends, be happy good people. The
people in the news screaming the loudest are the squeaky wheel, the minority of
people number-wise. Most people just
live and try to be good people, good to each other, their family, and friends
and those they come in contact with. No
matter race, religion, wealth, etc. Just
people trying to be good people.
So how do we
the good people, get America back online?
Back on track? Janet’s manicurist
said she wouldn’t want to grow up today where people are being raised (by
society) to look at people as “this is my black friend, my white friend, my
Hispanic friend.” In her grandchildren’s
pre-school they are being taught to address their peers by race and name. They also have pulled all books that address
characters by sex “he, she, her, him”.
So this brought up the conversation of when all of the applications and
i.d.’s will have “other” as a choice.
explains briefly how the two of them get off track. Which of course brings laughter. Go figure, them laughing and getting
side-tracked. He pokes her for
fidgeting, deflating, and talking 100 miles per hours. Somehow this brings up that she likes her red
framed eyeglasses. They are reading
glasses, but she really likes them and is thinking next time she may get red
frames for her eyeglasses. Could you
smash the like button for her red frames please she says.
brings up the news in Minnesota. Patrick
brings up Jessie the Body Ventura being the governor. Janet brings up the trial and they wonder
what really happened. Janet talked
briefly about day one. Judge talked for an hour, prosecutor talked for a few
hours, defense for a few minutes. During
the prosecutor’s opening speech, he showed was the full video.
watched it and was appalled and told Patrick about it. She told him that she is not striking
controversy. And explained it to
him. She told him the cop is going away
for a cold long time. They did not
discuss the multiple funerals. They did
discuss how long he would live in jail.
His only chance for survival is solitary confinement. Patrick googled if MN has the death penalty,
he will die in jail by a shank, Janet said assuredly. Or sheet hanging is option two. Janet feels he at least has a chance at a
fair trial. As opposed to the American
girl accused of murdering her roommate in Italy. No matter what your opinion is, he has a
chance at a trial. They both wonder why
the other three cops could not pull him off Floyd. A very touchy subject, Patrick pulls them
back on subject. Part of being an
American is the right to a fair trial.
if Patrick finds it funny that most people who move here legally and try are
successful. A lot of people, depending
on where they come from and settle, the government gives immigrants houses, an
income for three years, an education, everything you can think of. Most Americans would love that benefits. The shame of this was the education many of
these people have in their home country.
Then they come here to work menial jobs, washing dishes or whatever and
must go back to school for the job they already know.
they get sidetracked with the discussion of the Clint Eastwood movie “The
Mule”, and the words that come out of his mouth are like listening to Janet’s
Dad. It brings back great memories of
her Father, may he Rest in Peace. Much
of the similarity is the generation and that the story being true and a man
from the same area as my Father. Point
of Fact, Patrick sidetracked her here.
America to improve, and the good people need to find a way to help. She is tired of seeing the hate on the
news. The news makes it seem like
everyone hates everyone. Janet points
out that the apartment complex behind them is multi-racial, younger, louder
music. But friendly, we talk to them and
wave. Now if you wave at someone in a
car, you might get shot here according to Patrick. Janet points out that when she used to drive
Kyle to work at Amazon thru the barrio, she never had a problem. Windows down, music up, talking to the
locals, loving their music, and smiling.
She really believes if you approach people with fear in your eyes or
hatred in your eyes, you will receive hate.
It is rare for Patrick or Janet to have problems with people. It is because of the way they treat people.
Janet say be Proud to be an American, Live your life and be Happy about it
too. If you don’t like it here, leave. They then tell people to leave in several
languages. Don’t forget to love, like,
