The View, #MeToo, and Kevin Hart

abby-huntsman

I am going to take a rare exception to something I heard on The View yesterday.

One of the women said something to the effect that, “The #MeToo Movement was not giving those men accused a chance to change’.   I take exception to that because most people don’t change things that are working for them.  And that goes double and even triple for sexual predators.

And that predatory behavior was working for Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and Dr. Nasser.  .   Their predatory behavior was working so well for them that they took it to their offices, homes, and medical practices.  And it is still working for the family stalking me!

I’d like for the young woman who said that to stop for a moment and think about what her daughter would have faced, in the future, if we, the women of the  #MeToo Movement had not spoken up.

She, herself is in journalism and imagine what would have happened to her daughter if her daughter had applied for an apprenticeship at FOX, NBC, or CBS and that culture of sexual harassment had not been stopped.

P.S.  My stalkers are lesbians and that has not made me homophobic.

I was all set to give Kevin Hart the benefit of the doubt, thinking it was something he did to get noticed, until I read them.  I was shocked.   But, by calling him out, I’m willing to bet he wouldn’t be doing any more tweets like those.

George H. W. Bush’s Funeral

I just finished watching George H. W. Bush’s Texas funeral.   And I was absolutely touched.  I know a lot of people remember him for his “Thousand Points of Light’ speech and program, but what I remember most, and think we still need today, is his ‘National Day of Prayer’ program.

I was living in the Bible Belt then and I vividly remember starting those days with prayer for our country and troops, taking time at lunch and pray, and before going home in the evenings, attending a prayer service.

With this country under attack from without and from within, I think could use a few National Days of Prayer.

Also, before I end this post I’d like to commend all those from the military who participated in the funeral and especially the Honor Guard.  You made this nation proud and that England is not the only country that can put on a royal show.

Immigrant Caravan Walked Through These Mexican Cities?

Zamora, Michoacan Mexico

Now, I know a lot of you think that I’ve been too hard on the immigrants trying to get into the country illegally, but you need to know that these same people challenging armed border guards in Tijuana are the same people who would not challenge armed guards in their countries.  And one wonders why.

Mexico. It’s not what you think.

In my new novel, Eleanor Grunsback, my character Eleanor is deported to Mexico when it’s found out that she committed green card marriage fraud in order to keep a friend in the United States.

So, I had to do a lot of research on Mexico.  And it’s a good thing I did, because I thought all of Mexico looked like this:

However, I had to do a major story revision because most of Mexico looks like this:

This San Angel a neighborhood in Mexico City, Mexico home of Juan Carlos Rodriguez in the story

The Tijuana Border Crossing

Not to far from where all this is happening is Baja California and Baja California Sur.

But are you like these people and most Americans thinking that Baja Claifornia and Baja California Sur are part of the United States?

I sure did.  But it’s not.  It’s part of Mexico.  Here’s what these people are passing up by being laser focused on the United States.
