Episode 19 Transcript: Eat your Whiny cake you bastards…

Good morning, thank you for joining me on Savvy Spoons.

This is your host, Misty.

I wanted to talk today about whining.

It’s an art we’ve perfected here in the United States of America. It’s almost like you give some people a handful of inalienable rights and they stop learning about them and starting whining about what they think they mean without ever educating themselves as to what they actually mean and don’t mean.

Let’s uh… Let’s give you an example.

Our lovely Representative from Colorado, Boebert, whined on Facebook about Freedom of Speech being limited because Facebook won’t let Donald Trump back on.

No.

He violated a terms of service agreement and while I understand Mark Zuckerburg is pretty powerful last time I checked he’s not the United States government.

Which is where our Freedom of Speech rights stop.

We don’t actually have the right to enforce our Freedom of Speech on private entities, in fact, the Republicans made sure of that in the gay wedding cake fiasco that they keep forgetting which is why they now get to eat their cake too. See it turns out that there was a couple, a gay couple, who wanted to get married and they wanted to have their cake made by this lovely bakery that decided that they didn’t want to support gay marriage by making a wedding cake. They got sued for discrimination and the Republicans went wild because you shouldn’t be forced to bake a cake for a union you don’t believe in.

Deep Southern Accent: That is unconstitutional, that is unAmerican.

Because we don’t do that here in America, we don’t force people to make things that are against their religious beliefs or violate their freedom of speech we permit discrimination in public accommodations, or at least we’ve started to.

You know, if goes back to the whole “I’m a pharmacist and even though I hold the medical health and care of my community members in my hands I can choose not to fill RU486 prescriptions.” You know, that kind of bullcrap.

Anyway, in my own lovely home State; Masterpiece Cake Shop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, was the case in which the Supreme Court of the United States said that you don’t have to bake a cake for a gay couple if you don’t want to so; Congratulations Republicans it is because of YOUR hard fought efforts that Facebook gets to keep Trump off of it because it turns out you don’t have to suborn the bullshit lies of the ex-president of the United States of American just because he has free speech.

Mmm hmmm. Yeah. There’s your cake.

EAT IT.

Thank you for popping in today for this short but sweet episode. I promise you more in the future, I just had to get that off my chest.

Take care.


Misty opens up about withdrawing empathy for her countrypeople still refusing to vaccinate and her belief that if they want to have "Their body, their choice" then they can just shove that somewhere dark and moist.  — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/savvyspoons/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/savvyspoons/support

We need some empathy…

Another week, another white man kills a random group of people.

My father in law is known for saying “it’s not the bullet with your name on it that you have to worry about, it’s the one marked “To who it may concern.”

We are losing our people to white terrorists.

Join me in a winding podcast filled with poems and thoughts about privilege, being an ally, and empathy.

A haiku on Twitter, a mass shooting in Boulder, and the freedom of pain killers results in an open discussion on dismantling privilege and the desperate need we have as a nation for empathy in our citizens.  — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/savvyspoons/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/savvyspoons/support

O Civility…

duck your shameful head O’ traitor 
don’t show your face in my land of freedom.

tear down your lackluster campaign flags
cease your tone deaf rally cries.

you pressed your pestilent idol upon my nation 
and with overwhelming numbers you were rebuked.

your time of relevance is no more.

you tried to force yourself upon us 
like the cheapest of history’s cowards.

raging through our nation’s capitol
smearing shit on a symbol you claim to revere.

bludgeoning friend and foe alike
with every quisling blow.  

all for one who never cared a whit for you.

now your leaders quake in the murk
hoping to be unnoticed while you rot.

your sniveling idol pouts and putts 
as his reckoning comes due. 

and you lecture me on civility
telling me it’s time to end our divisiveness. 

your brazeness is boundless.

you do not get to come into my house
to set a bomb off in the living room

then get upset when I don’t offer you tea
to go with the shrapnel.
