Tall Tales and Ripping Yarns from The Great State Of Texas

“Everybody Gets A Month!”


February is African American history month, March is women’s history and Irish American heritage month, May is Asian Pacific and Jewish American heritage month, June is now Pride month (too many identifiers to call it Gay and Lesbian month any longer), September is Hispanic-Latino heritage month, October is Italian American heritage month, and lastly November is American Indian heritage month. But to list some is to exclude many. Where are the months to celebrate Caribbean, German, Scandinavian, French-Creole, or people from India? When is enough, enough?

So now friends and neighbors, June will be known as “Pride Month.” What about Juneteenth? June has always been the month for celebrating the end of slavery. Is that canceled now? I wouldn’t be surprised. Our black Americans are not going to be happy about this one. Why doe’s our government, (mostly our Democrat government) think a group of folks should get a month celebrating their sexual preference? I don’t give a tinkers-damn about who humps who, but when you try and cram this “Wokie-sock cap wearing-Birkenstock feet-hipster-skinny jean-I Phone talking-snow flake ” crap down my throat, then I get irritated. Gays can be Gays and boys can be girls and vice-versa, no problem, and most American’s feel that way. It’s not the 1950s anymore. Hell, even 40 years ago, Kermit The Frog sang about Rainbow Connections.

Old Sippy-Cup Joe, gave orders for all American Embassy’s and government buildings to fly the rainbow flag for “Pride Month.” Doe’s this include our embassy’s in Muslim countries? Muslim law and Muslim folks don’t have much love for gay and trans peoples. I’m still waiting for the news report on this one.

We can assume that this will be made law by “Old I’ll Sign Anything” Joe. Doe’s he realize the cost to change all the calender’s in this country? Just imagine; January, February, March, April, May, Pride Month, July etc. Doesn’t flow too well. For a point of argument, one could say, “well, this is harmless, let’s give those poor down-trodden folks their own month,” they deserve it. What have they done to deserve their own calendar month? The few gay folks I know, have great professional career’s and make a load of change and are definitely not down trodden.

Everyone needs their own month, so let’s make July “Grumpy-Ass Old Men” month. Us senior have to put up with this new world order, love-love Panda Rainbow crap, so give us our Du. We’ve earned it.

Dr. Gustav Scaramouch, head of Social Behavior’s Department at the Freddie Mercury Medical Institute in Queens, New York says, ” this is a slippery slope. Once we give the LGBQRSTUVWXYZ movement their own month, then we will be obliged to give other groups their own month. Our historical calendar will be decimated. Imagine starting with the first month of the year, January, will be “Black Lives Matter Month”, then February will be “Antifa” Month, then March will be “White Supremacy Month”, then April will be “Illegal Immigrants Month,”there will be no end. Then, they will come for our American Holidays. I called President Biden about this, but he was taking his fourth nap of the day and he couldn’t talk.”

How’s about we just leave things alone. It’s been working for over 200 years because our founding fathers were much smarter than us.

  1. Lynn Fay took my comment, so I had to think up something else.

    My grandfather used to say, “If’n it ain’t broke, don’t mess with it.” This was the kind of down-home wisdom you’d expect from folks who value their Bibles and their guns. Um … he also used to tell me to leave the wheelbarrow alone on account I didn’t know enough about machinery.

    Frankly, I understand “Juneteenth” as much as I understand Kwanza … both of which are “made up” observances of … well, nothing, actually. Besides, as you pointed out, there’s a lot more “observances” than there are months, so right off there’s a problem trying to recognize everyone and everything. Rather than having monthly observances maybe we could just assign a day to celebrate “whatever.” Today, for example, could be bacon sammich day.

    Like you, I don’t give a fig what people do in the privacy of their own homes, and I also don’t give a damn if Bobby wants to transform himself into a freak named Bobbi. So that being true, why does the government keep bothering me with this crap? Grandad also used to say that no one who understands the government has much use for it.

    I think we should give up all those silly-ass observances and just go back to the basics: the first day of spring, Christmas Day, etc. That way, we don’t have to worry about hurting Bobbi’s, or any other one-cell organism’s feelings — which I’m sure only matters to the US Director of Calendar Silliness.
