DIY Double Decker Bus tiny house conversion – Family of 8

I love this.   As some may know we sold our Palm Beach home and bought a wonderful huge Extra large 4 door cab dually truck and a 40.4-foot fifth wheel with the idea of living in it for a long time and traveling.  In year two Ron’s happiness changed.   We suffered a tire blow out that was very scary to Ron, and it was during a time he was undergoing untreated anxiety panic attacks we did not understand.    He was having them, and we did not understand why.   The tire blowing incident caused Ron to freak out and demand we sell the entire set up as soon as possible.   He did not want to live in it another day and wanted it gone.  It was making him cry to even have to stay in it.   This caused a problem because we sank 125,000 into the set up plus other costs, but I adore him and even though I did not know what was behind this insistence on his part I sold the entire unit at a huge loss, half the cost we paid for it all and moved us into 1984 double wide in the first phase of the RV mobile home park we were in.  There were better homes we wanted and could afford but bigotry against us as one of the first well known gay couples of the park.    Many of the old bigots refused to sell to us or asked for outrageous prices.     Of course, after Ron got treatment for anxiety and panic attacks it was all better but far too late.  But if I had the chance, I would love this unit.    Hugs

DeSantis Pushes Right Wing School Board Candidates

No dissent will be allowed in the authoritarian kingdom of DeathSantis Florida, ruled by the Feudal lord gang thug republican DeathSantis.  We have a chance this midterm to stop him now.   We must.   Hugs

Florida Politics reports:

It appears Gov. Ron DeSantis isn’t just endorsing School Board candidates, he’s actively supporting them. Mailers paid for by his political committee have started showing up promoting his preferred choices for local boards.

The paid political advertisements came weeks after DeSantis started issuing rounds of School Board endorsements around the state. Additionally, Facebook digital ads started running this weekend targeted to voters in particular counties supporting endorsed School Board candidates.

The flexing of DeSantis’ muscles seems especially notable considering School Board races across the state are nonpartisan and will appear on the Aug. 23 ballot, with many decided there.

I am unaware of any school district that is threatening to close or force students to wear masks this September. Why is that even an issue?

Kids will hate school even more with these kind of people in power over them. That is the goal, of course, make every person hate education. That’s what the fascists like.

FIFY.

They haven’t been for quite some time really. The Creationists have been getting their people elected to school boards for years now, just to push that nonsense. Now the fascists are emulating them, but they’re a bit smarter than those walking rocks.

South Florida LGBT teen jumped for second time

This video is horrible and hard to watch.   This kid is given a vicious beating because he is trans according to his grandmother.   Notice the police and school have done nothing to help this teen and now with the don’t say gay laws no teacher can support him.   This is what the republican’s in office and the right wing maga thugs want with the don’t say gay bills.   This is the result of demonizing trans people to claim they are assaulting people in bathrooms, suggesting they are doing perverted stuff in locker rooms, and removing support for LGBTQ+ kids along with anti-discrimination messages that might help teach tolerance and acceptance.   This is what the legislator that wrote the Florida don’t say gay bill admitted he wanted to have happen.   He wanted LGBTQ+ kids targeted for abuse and harm.    Well he is getting his way.    With more abuse comes more suicide. 

To those who say that kids are transitioning on whims and doing so because it is a fad or perceived as the cool thing to do need to see the reality of this video.   This is the reality far too many gay, lesbian, and trans kids face.    Far too many LGBTQ+ face these threats of hate and violence in their daily lives made worse by the actions of DeathSantis and his anti-LGBTQ+ maga thugs.   When religious leaders scream that LGBTQ+ people should be killed, this is the result.    Some of these LGBTQ+ face this at home which is why they are not out at home, but now republican laws force teachers to out them to their parents.    Kids are not willing to transition and face this, living every day with the hassles of trying to find a bathroom, trying to make it through the day without support, suffering abuse and the danger of being beaten up unless they truly are of a different gender than they were assigned at birth. 

We are working so hard to remove this hate from society and the LGBTQ+ communities were gaining such deserved acceptance in society.   Schools had programs to teach tolerance, to show other kids there was nothing wrong with the LGBTQ+ kids, to establish acceptance.    To teach that diversity was a good thing.   Now in Florida married same sex couples cannot put up pictures of their spouses like straight couples and must hide from the kids their marriages / sexual orientation.    These red states / republicans / right wing thugs are trying to create a country where only straight white Christians are accepted and have assumed authority / privileges.   Everyone else must hide who they are and be silent.   50 years of work, decades of changing the perceptions in schools and the minds of the people, creating safer schools and workplaces, all destroyed in red states due to a small minority of violent thugs, the republican brownshirts, who won’t tolerate anyone different from them because they have the state authority’s permission to force other to live as these gang thugs’ demand.    The power / authority of the state is supporting and energizing these thugs.    If you vote republican this is the country you want.   If you vote republican this is the way you want the LGBTQ+ to be treated, along with women being second class citizens whose duty is to be an incubator for a male’s offspring.   Shame on you all for voting republican!   This is personal.   I lived through these beatings and worse.  I lived through the fears in schools, I lived with the mistreatment at home, and the discrimination in all aspects of adult life for being gay.    It was getting better until now.   We were moving away from this stuff being acceptable.   Now it is back.   What next?  Will black kids be the next targets of these laws, to make them the targets of more abuse?  Will LGBTQ+ adults not be able to rent, buy in some neighborhoods?  Will gays / lesbians get married on Sunday and be fired from work for being in a same sex marriage on Monday?     Hugs
