Are You a Coward?

Do you think your friends on the left are keeping their mouths shut? Nope.



Are you a coward?

Here’s some straight talk for some of you conservatives. I hear from people all the time how appreciative they are of me for standing up for the truth, and that’s great, but then some of you ruin the whole thing by saying something along the lines of, “but I just can’t do that because it would affect my business.”

You, my friend, are a coward.

Do you think your friends on the left are keeping their mouths shut? Nope. And that is why they are destroying our country even though they are in the minority. Every time you remain silent, you give tacit approval to those who will win simply because you are afraid.

Here is an example: When they tell you that man with a penis is a woman and that he should be called she/her and you just go along, you are demonstrating cowardice. And that is how we got into this mess. The inmates are running the asylum.

I’m really glad the founding fathers of our great nation were more concerned with truth than with money. Frankly, they knew that without standing for the truth, within a generation or two their freedoms would be gone. Better to stand for the truth and risk it all than to hide in the corner sucking your thumb and lose it all slowly, guaranteed.

Here is how it affects me. I will regularly get calls from people who want me to speak at their events. Now you must understand that I never talk politics at my events (maybe a reference or two but ALWAYS in a non-partisan manner). I talk about leadership and influence and success. We will talk on the phone and decide that it’s going to be a great event and they say that they’re going to send me a contract. Then a few days later I get that phone call. “I’m sorry, but someone on our board saw that you were a Trump supporter and said that we can’t bring you in.” That’s it. The left will destroy and cancel with impunity and the right just gets in line and follows along.

Or I will have people who love my work but are too afraid to have me on their podcasts, not because I will say anything negative on the podcast, but because of my politics OFF the podcast. And these are political views that are shared by a majority of the country!

In many ways, I have been canceled, and that is okay. I can look in the mirror and know that I am standing for the truth and fighting the destructive forces of liberalism and progressivism.

My challenge to you: Stand for something. Take a stand. Speak up. We need you. I need you. This can’t be done without ALL of us.

If you don’t, it is only a matter of time until your freedoms are gone. The left is pushing hard to destroy every fabric of our great country. It is time to forget about our “money” and our “businesses.” If you try to save them only, with fighting for the truth, you will surely lose them eventually and your children and grandchildren will wonder why you didn’t speak up.

Eight Dysphemisms to Start Your Week

A dysphemism is a word or phrase that is more offensive than the words it is replacing



A “euphemism” is the substitution of an agreeable or inoffensive expression for one that might suggest something more bluntly or offend others, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. To say, for example, “He doesn’t have all his marbles,” is regarded as gentler than saying “He is stark raving insane.”

The Mighty Dysphemism

The opposite of a euphemism is a “dysphemism.” A dysphemism is a word or phrase that is more offensive, blunt, or harsh than the word or phrase which it is replacing. For example, instead of stating that the Manhattan District Attorney is “cognitively challenged,” you refer to him instead as a “total partisan whack job.”

For your amusement, at the least, here are eight dysphemism followed by the kinder, gentler, or at least more definitive terminology of what is being said:

“Biting off more than you can chew” – Orally extracting an amount of edible matter that exceeds what one is comfortably able to masticate.

“That’s a load of B.S.” – Your assertion reminds one of bovine excretion.

“Sh__faced” – Bearing an expression that one normally associates with the act of removing solid waste from the body.

“Can’t tell your ass from your elbow” – Unable to differentiate between your dorsal side orifice and the joint connecting your forearm and upper arm.

“Stepping in a pile of crap” – A pedestrian venture into an accumulation of animal or human waste.

“Go F-yourself” – Engage in the act of physical consummation with yourself.

“Up to your eyeballs in crap” – Finding yourself surrounded at the visual level by unpleasantly aromatic organic waste.

“Carnal knowledge” – Having a close encounter with another, free of garments and other impediments, leading to direct tactile stimulation.

A True Time Saver

Thank goodness for dysphemisms. In a most fundamental way, they are true time-savers. Without them, we’d be groping for tedious phrasing all day long. “Up your nose with a rubber hose,” if you don’t “catch my drift.”

Nobody Gets Enough Rest

Few adults sleep each night for all that they need



Here is my creation, Nobody Gets Enough Rest, based on the theme of Nobody Does It Better, original music by Marvin Hamlisch, with lyrics by Carol Bayer Sager, and sung by Carly Simon:

Nobody Gets Enough Rest
by Jeff Davidson © 2023

Nobody gets enough rest,
no one gets all that they need.
Too many people gyp their sleep time:
When it comes to rest… they’re in neeeeeed…

I wasn’t looking
but somehow they found me,
all of the things that lengthen my day aaaaaaaaay.
Like the TV above me
and the friends who love me,
up all night so we can play aaaaaaaaay.

Nobody gets enough rest,
no one gets all that they need.
Nobody takes enough naps, aaaand
sure enough, we’re all in nee ee ee eeed.

Nobody gets enough rest,
no one sleeps all that they need.
Yet people come to work like its
some kind of brea ee ee ee ee eeze.

The way that it’s going, all day-long going
there’s got to be some kind of pau au au au ause,
That keeps us from running,
all 24 hours, disobeying nature’s basic law aw aw aw aw.

Nobody gets enough rest,
no one gets all that they need.
Too many people gyp their sleep time:
When it comes to rest… they’re in nee ee eed…
