Nicole has some requests. She wants to see pictures of our “homesteads.” I’m not exactly sure who “our” is, except that it surely includes me, but she also wants us to “do something.”
I’m gonna pop on here right quick to do a video because I want to make clear to anyone who is watching, especially Al and Lisa and Sally and Bethannie and whoever else that’s running all those stupid pages, um, I made a post earlier. And I have every person who’s ever commented on any troll page blocked. Um, I have like 100 people maybe. Some of them may be innocent bystanders, anyhow.
I made a post on my page to make it public and within twenty-nine minutes it was screen shot, which is fine. The person who posted it is blocked from me, so that means they have to use a fake page to go look at my pages, a fake profile, that I haven’t blocked, to go look at my pages to stalk me. It just goes to show how pathetic you people really are.
And, um, I saw that you’ve posted that and something about my timeline of plans, and really, I don’t care if you don’t think I am moving fast enough, I don’t care if you don’t think that my plans are, because I said three years ago I was gonna have something done, it really. . . why are you obsessed with that? I mean, seriously. Why do you sit there and spend so much time on how much I haven’t had done.
You know what? I plan to get my hair, my dreads fixed. (incoherent) Why don’t you write that on your calendar? . . . (incoherent) dreads redone. Write it on your calendar and, uh, I’ll send you an email when I get it done. Or maybe you could stand outside the hair salon while I get it done, because that’s how fricking weird you people are.
But, um, the reason I’m doing this video is because I want Sally and the rest of them to know that if you really want to make an issue of it, then stop being such pansy-asses and actually get off your ass and do something. I mean, seriously.
You think I frauded you with GoFundMe? File a lawsuit.
If you think I stole water from somebody, file criminal charges.
If you think I’ve somehow broken some other law you think I broke, bring it. . . (incoherent) harass or stalk you, where’s your police report? (incoherent)
You want to argue about this and debate my life, you know where I live, you know my story (completely not understandable).
Quit hiding behind other people and fake pages. Show me your courage. I don’t care if you like me. I don’t care if you think I have bad teeth or big buggy eyes or whatever it is you’re going to critique about this video because I don’t care. I really don’t. And there’s nothing that you can say about me that hasn’t already been said. And seriously, people don’t care.
People aren’t – normal people – aren’t obsessed with stupid stuff like that.
Um, you know, people that follow us (unclear) and they see aspects of that, but they’re not obsessed with critiquing every single thing that I do, I mean, really, Lisa, you have nothing better to do, you are a retired lawyer, you apparently have all these college degrees and all this worldly experience and you waste it doing a meaningless blog with like 150 people about me? That’s what you waste your time doing? Of all the things that you could be doing with yourself.
Sally, you have all kinds of paid blogs and you use them to harass and belittle people? You couldn’t do anything positive or good? You couldn’t share your knowledge – apparently you’re an expert homesteader – where’s your homestead blog? Where are the pictures of the beautiful house that you have? Show us all these things. Seriously,I wanna see these things. I wanna see.
You sit here and critique me about my crappy house and my crappy yard, my stupid kids and all this other crap you pull. Show me how perfect you are. I want to see your perfectness. I want to see you blog about it. I want to see you write a page about all this knowledge and share. (unclear) mocking me about my teeth and my belly and my fat husband or whatever else it is you wanna bring up, let’s see ’em. (unclear) Do something positive. Like actually do something. Actually, really, do something.
Other than just like, because I’m gonna sit here and plan to, I may never accomplish it, but at least I’m sitting here trying and not belittling people who haven’t been able to accomplish their goals.
Have a nice day.
So I want to comply with her request.
I asked around and got some photos of critic’s homes, yards, homesteads, scenery, and above all “doing something.” The only rule was that the photo had to be actually of the critic’s own property or event, taken by the critic (nothing pulled from the net).
First some living rooms:
A couple of kitchens, one indoors, one outdoor:
Now for yards:
And food preparation.
And the best is last. This is the logo from our son Nathan’s website. This was made for us by Al Wilson, who is an artist and a good friend. We didn’t ask him to do this. He just up and did it one day. The location is temporary. It’s going permanently on a lighter wall so it shows up better.
One last note: I have never mocked Nicole’s appearance or allowed anyone to do so. I have never seen a single person refer to her children as “stupid,” even though Nicole called my child a “dead junkie.” I have strictly controlled discussion of those children here, avoided using photos of them – and obscured their faces when I had to use a photo with one of them in it, in spite of the fact that Nicole has regularly bashed my child who is dead and cannot defend himself. I have never had a fake profile, although Nicole uses them frequently. I have never started a FB page about here, although Nicole doesn’t mind participating in dozens of them.
Second, I resent being lumped with every other critic. Every other person on the planet is not responsible for what I say here. Nor am I responsible for what is said on some Facebook page. But hey, if she’s going to lump us all together, then she can try to figure out whose property is whose.
