ON MY SOAPBOX…Life needs a rewind button


WRITTEN BY: SHEILA TOLLEY

 

Heavens to Murgatroyd….was an expression popularized by the cartoon character Snagglepuss, a regular on the Yogi Bear Show in the 1960s. Murgatroyd!  Do you remember that word?

Tell a youngster that in your youth, you drove a Jalopy. They will be totally confused and ask, “What is a Jalopy?”

Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and get a Chuckle from it.

Some old expressions have become obsolete because of the unstoppable invasion of technology.  These phrases included:  A kodak moment, Don’t touch that dial, Carbon copy, You sound like a broken record, and Hung out to dry.

Back in the olden days we had a lot of  moxie.  We’d put on our best bib and tucker, to straighten up and fly right.

Heavens to Betsy!  Gee whillikers!  Jumping Jehoshaphat!  Holy Moley!

We were  in like Flynn and  living the life of Riley; behind our backs we may have been called a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill.  But not to our face….Not for all the tea in China!

Remember when life was SWELL? When is the last time anything was swell? Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes, and pedal pushers.

Kilroy was here…..but he isn’t anymore.

We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, “Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle!” We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed as common as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues, pens and  keyboards.

Poof,  go the words of our youth, the words we’ve left behind.  We blink, and they’re gone.  Where have all those great phrases gone?

Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it.  Hey!  It’s your nickel.  Don’t forget to pull the chain.  Knee high to a grasshopper.  Well, Fiddlesticks!  Going like sixty. Okidoki, I’ll see you in the funny papers.  Don’t take any wooden nickels. Wake up and smell the roses.

It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff! (Carter’s Little Liver Pills are gone too!)

Leaves us to wonder where Superman will find a phone booth.

See ya later, alligator!

 

WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE FABULOUS PAST. NO ONE WILL EVER HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN.  WE WERE GIVEN A PRECIOUS GIFT:  BEING BLESSED TO LIVE IN AMERICA WHEN ALL AMERICANS LOVED OUR COUNTRY. THANKS TO THE DEDICATION AND MORALS HANDED DOWN TO US BY THE “GREATEST GENERATION!”

“Commie Joe should move to Afghanistan and “toss his hat in the ring” to run for president. Afghanistan has two vice presidents, he could take Piglosi and AOC. What a THREESOME!”

Prediction

“Oh my …the dems have placed us in a terrible Stolen Election predicament, haven’t they? We either remain stuck with the garbled, stuttering of Chatty Cathy with the tangled pull string or we end up with Cackling Kamala. Our choice is like picking the tallest dwarf from a Communist Circus.”

Democrat Cat Day:  I’m giving news that the Democrat voters and Congress wanted according to the 2020 election.  The first are inflation and lack of product.  If you can get it, it cost 6 % more.  People won’t fill jobs when Biden and Pigleosi keep giving them more than they can earn at work by drawing unemployment.

WHERE ARE THEY?

What Happened to the White People in America?

 

Why is the national speed limit sign a white circle with black diagonal line?  That seems so vague to me: AskUK

 
Of the 328.2 Million total citizens, there are 236.5 Million Whites in the United States or 72% of the population!

A spreadsheet of TV commercials shows the following over a 4 month period:
 
White men have all but disappeared.  When they are in commercials they are either old, ugly and sick or they are the partner of a black woman and have no speaking part.  In 3 of the commercials  the white men are doing laundry and always paired with a little girl to whom they are delivering  the clean clothes.

There were zero commercials of White fathers and sons.   None!
 
Equally disturbing, young white boys and teens have also disappeared.  The study found a majority of the children were white girls with a black “brother.”  Mostly TV commercial couples consist of a white woman with a black man. Are they trying to program the young people of today?

Amazingly, in the month of December there was an uptick in good looking white male models.  Research determined that in each and every case it was a cologne commercial and every one of those commercials were made in Europe where they still use muscular, masculine white men.

One insurance commercial featured a good looking white guy in his 20’s.  He was so mind-numbingly stupid that he was incapable of delivering his lines and couldn’t even say “Liberty Mutual” the insurance company featured in the commercial.

Over a period of 4 months it concluded that while the African American population in America is only 12% they were in 94.3% of the commercials.  Black males are only 5% of our population yet were in 89.7% of the ads.

White males make up the largest segment of our population, yet were only in 4% of the TV commercials!  In most of those cases they are in their 60’s to 80’s and were pushing medication for debilitating diseases, reverse mortgages (Tom Selleck) or Medicare plans.  While the study had many, many more alarming facts, one that really stands out is that each and every ad for new cars featured a woman driver except for Lincoln.

Only one ad included a white male passenger and he is not behind the wheel, a black woman is.  In the commercials for automobiles there were more black women drivers than white women.  Again, Europe was the exception here Mercedes and BMW had NO VISIBLE DRIVERS!!  They showed the cars cruising highways with license plates that were obviously European but never allowed a view where the driver was visible.  I found that very interesting. 

The questions:

Who casts these commercial shoots?
Who directs the directors to cast certain ‘types’?
How did this trend in commercials happen all at the same time? at federal government direction?
Can you say conspiracy?
What is going on here?

Looks like white lives don’t matter and Black privilege has taken over!

Can you say Critical Race Theory – the crap being taught to our children and grandchildren in school today?
.

“I want to know the following information. If we could only trust the government to report the real results or go by the rules, WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE!

I would like to know the $$$ amount that non-white people paid in taxes for 2020.

I would like to know the $$$ amount that white people paid in taxes for 2020.

‘We can’t do that,’ says the government!

‘Why not,’ I say, ‘you knew how to track down black farmers in order to provide them with FIVE BILLION $$$ of PINO Biden’s massive stimulus relief package.’

So, C’mon Man….HOP TO IT! I want to see the taxes paid..Non-White vs. White. 

While you are at it…Go ahead and extrapolate the benefits paid using those same parameters of Non-White vs. White. Don’t forget the Illegal Aliens. They are either Non-White or White. You know where the benefits go and I need to know.

RUN ALONG NOW…I WANT RESULTS!”
