‘Sorry’ Doesn’t Really Cut It, Josh Duggar

I have never watched an episode of 19 kids and counting, so you could say that my opinion regarding Josh Duggar molesting young children is pretty unbiased. If we’re being blunt though – when a crime is committed against a young person who is unable to defend themselves – there shouldn’t even be the option of being biased…period.

People are reaching out and showing support simply because he owned up to it? Where is the support and outreach for the children [some being his sisters] that he assaulted? Since when does justice take a back seat to an apology?

If this was not a white guy with a well-known christian faith and for lack of better terms – celebrity family – the news articles would read much differently.

I’m shocked at the amount of support he is receiving with little mention of the victims. I am appalled that there are people in positions of power who are going on the record saying, “Good people make bad mistakes”.

Well, no shit. The problem is that molesting a child is not simply a mistake.

I made a mistake the other day when I yelled at my kid over something minuscule. I make mistakes often; to put something as inappropriate as what Josh Duggar did in the same category makes me want to vomit.

In his pubic apology he says, he confessed to his parents and received counseling and follows that with, “…I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.” 

His life, can’t ruin that…

Josh Duggar did not beat someone up. Josh Duggar did not name-call. Josh Duggar did not pull a prank that went too far. Josh Duggar did not accidentally mistake anything… Josh Duggar made the decision to grope and molest his sisters and other kids. 

4 out of the 5 victims were his own family members & to say they went to the authorities, like many media outlets are reporting – the truth is, they didn’t go to the authorities until a year had passed, and it was only because he had done it again. I’m sorry doesn’t cut it & if it did – the prisons here in America would be much less crowded.

In other news: Josh Duggar is a much larger danger to society than any gay person I’ve ever met.

TLC – Waterfalls [I was 10]

I was 10 when this song came out.

My son will be 10 in 2 years.

I jammed to this.

A lonely mother gazing out of her window
Staring at a son that she just can’t touch
If at any time he’s in a jam she’ll be by his side
But he doesn’t realize he hurts her so much

But all the praying just ain’t helping at all
‘Cause he can’t seem to keep his self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money the best way he knows how
Another body laying cold in the gutter
Listen to me

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you’re moving too fast

Little precious has a natural obsession
For temptation but he just can’t see
She gives him loving that his body can’t handle
But all he can say is “Baby, it’s good to me.”

One day he goes and takes a glimpse in the mirror
But he doesn’t recognize his own face
His health is fading and he doesn’t know why
Three letters took him to his final resting place
Y’all don’t hear me

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you’re moving too fast

Come on

I seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin’ a trace of not one God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days

And like His promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries

My only bleedin’ hope
Is for the folk who can’t cope
With such an endurin’ pain
That it keeps ’em in the pourin’ rain
Who’s to blame
For tootin’ ‘caine into your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else’s brain
You claim the insane
And name this day in time
For fallin’ prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin’ true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you’re moving too fast

And now I’m a grown up… & I don’t want my kid to listen to music anymore.
