There, but for the grace of God


I seldom wish bad things upon people. You really have to offend me to my very core to make me hate you. Michael Savage has done this. To my core.

Apparently, I am an inattentive parent and have subsequently spawned a brat. According to Savage (the irony of his name isn't wasted on me), this is the reason for my daughter's Autism. This brainiac says, all I have to do is tell my daughter to "don't act like a moron" and all will be well. Thank you Dr. Savage. I think the clinicians we see at the University of Michigan Developmental Disorders Clinic may beg to differ with you.

edited for meeeeeee.  Although I've not yet forgiven, I will.  Michael Savage can **** himself.  I'm a good girl, I won't stoop that low.

I'm not doing so well these days in the coping department, at least when it comes to my daughter. This 24/7/365 job of being a mother to someone with an IQ of 25 (at best) has got me down. For pity's sake, the damn dog has a higher IQ. I can't begin to explain what my life is like to someone who doesn't parent a child like this. I try my best to just ignore my feelings and fatigue and then out of the blue, I'm in tears. People like this, with their insensitive statements, just infuriate me and push me over the edge. If he were in front of me, I'd smack his filthy little mouth. Perhaps this asshole would like to spend 24 hours in my shoes. Perhaps, with some good luck, he'll infarct his tongue. I hope it rots right out of his mouth.

So listen up asshole! In the words of my Granny, "if ya ain't got anything nice to say, don't say nothin' at all." It is a good lesson to learn.

For everyone else, please pardon my french.

Why in the world do people think they can say anything they want, and it won't come back to them???? I feel so bad for you dealing with everything life has been handed you and doing the best you can, and then along comes this asshole saying this shit who has no clue what he is talking about. He absolutely should spend just one week trying to cope, and then lets hear what he has to say!!!

Thank you....

I don't disagree. On further reading up on this putz, I discovered that he was fired from MSNBC for telling a caller "I hope you get AIDS and die." His back peddling audio on his site is disgusting. People like him have tongues so sharp, they don't need a knife to cut their food.

Why do people put up with this nonsense? BTW, I don't think he'd have the skills to last one day under my roof.

I can understand your anger, what I don't understand is why you would even let a moron like that annoy you. What he said is so stupid, it doesn't warrant the energy.

Rudee said...

You're right wt. I'm just a bit sensitive these days. I worry about people who listen to him and believe the hate he spoon feeds to them. I'm just giving him my own two cents right back. His is a very old fashioned opinion of autism. Back in the day, they blamed mom. Here we are, many decades later and with recent genetic proof and this moron keeps spouting out-dated beliefs.

I saw this on CNN last night and was thinking of you. Your are right, he is an asshole, a giant one and I'd help you beat him up. Don't despair friend, I'm not in your shoes and can't even begin to imagine how difficult it would be. I had a small glimmer of taking care of my Mom 24/7 for three years but I can't imagine doing it for as long as you have. Your grandma was right, he hasn't learned that lesson...ciao and hugs

Brenda said...

I must be a "sitting on the fence" kinda gal, because I read Rositta's comment and thought yeah I'd help you beat him up too, and then read WT's comment and so agree...why give the guy any attention at all. It was all just healthy venting though and now Rudee is back with a beautiful project to work on. Love that sweater and the color!

Rudee said...

I feel better about it now. SOmetimes, a good venting is just right for things. You're right Brenda, he isn't worth the time or effort. I'll put it away now. But he is still an asshole.

I came back to this post because I was looking for the yellow sweater post, and noticed you deleted parts. Ha! It is funny because as a rule, I don't say the f word, and really don't like movies that can't have one line of dialogue in it without having the f word...however...get me upset about something and every foul word I have ever heard in my life may come flying out of my mouth! I think I even create a few I have never heard of before...Ha!

Rudee said...

Brenda,

It's just a word to me. It isn't uncommon to trip right on out of my mouth. It's my anger I attempted to edit. However, I still can't do it. Eventually....
