Get excited, get pumped up because you know, my guest today, except you might not know her by her new name, which is the Patriot Barbie. She’s been on my show before and now she has a book out. It’s pretty incredible. Her book is one mom’s Fight for Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Lindsey Graham.
Hey, Rick, nice to see you again.
Good to see you. I love the background you got going on. It’s just incredible. I obviously follow you on social media. I see all the amazing things you’re doing and see how there’s a lot of fantastic things happening.
I knew a year and a half ago when my life turned upside down. I knew stuff was gonna be good someday. I didn’t know when and I just in faith was like, alright, Lord, do what you’re gonna do when you’re ready and I feel like the time is coming. So I’m super excited, but a long time coming.
Yeah. Just a process.
Yeah, we are really loving our new life in Arizona though. Everything is falling into place. I feel like every day I wake up and I am just waiting to see what’s today. Gonna bring. I have a whole new whole new life. That’s so cool. It’s so weird to have left my old life behind. I don’t even mourn it anymore. And so yeah, I just have so much exciting, exciting news to share with people who follow my story.
That’s so awesome. If you want to catch yourself up to go back because Lindsey was on I think it was about a year ago. So we’ll link that in the show notes, but you can listen to that because that’s where we delve into how we met and everything that took place before your move to Arizona with the state of Oregon and the stupidness that you endured there.
Yeah. So for those of you who don’t know. Real quick, Rick and I go way back. So I was one of the first Americans to reopen my business back in May of 2020 against the mandates, and because of that, I was made a national spectacle by my government and the canceled culture and became almost an overnight, you know, viral public figure, and I’m still fighting the state of Oregon that’s got some updates on that. Don’t even live in Oregon anymore, and they’re still coming after me with new things and Rick had me on, Rick actually flew to Oregon to help produce Liberty lockdown, the very probably you’ve never seen before because it’s being censored documentary on the lockdowns and that’s how we met the person, and then he had me on his podcasts shortly after that, maybe a few months. Then you actually have me back on after I moved to Arizona, and I was like, just moving in my house. I had my laptop set up on a bed trying to get the best light and just updated everyone on what my new life in Arizona looks like, and even then, Rick, when you had me on that it was like, I don’t know how to move to Arizona. I moved out of Oregon. Fighting the people like, you know, fighting the man and I had no idea where my life was going. But now that that was I think, Gosh, that was like around September, October, November of last year. Yeah. So it’s been a year since I’ve been on and I feel like it’s a whole nother story. Good thing to be on. There’s so many things that have changed.
It’s so cool. Because at least as of today, you are the only three time guests that I’ve ever had on the show, and it’s so exciting that it’s YouTube because it’s been like following the story and just you and I staying connected personally to is just
That’s awesome. I’m very honored. Thank you.
You gotta keep rolling with this and I want to encourage you for this too because you have to keep rolling with everything that you’re doing there’s there’s ways as I’m sure you found to get your voice out and to continue in those ways you know, even though I’ve been shadow banned by social media you know, countless times I’m sure you have I actually went to follow your partner the other day. And this was interesting to me because you’re because you have a podcast too now, right?
Yes, yeah. We have a radio radio show and podcast called The She’s So Right show, and yeah, my co-host Brandi Barclay. I swear she was not censored until she started hanging out with me.
Yeah, this was so intriguing, and I mean, we could probably publish this for everyone to listen to, but I went up because I follow you. Right, and then I saw that she was your co host and that Brandi was your co host, so I went to follow her on Instagram, and I’ve never seen this message before on social media. At all messengers talking about Yeah. Are you sure you want to follow? Randy Barkley? This account has repeatedly posted false information that was reviewed by independent fact checkers, or went against our community guidelines. I’ve never seen this before. It was like IG saying, hey, this person is stupid in speech shit.
We were following them because we don’t think that they’re reputable. So you may not want to listen to their information. Yeah, that I’ve had that message on my Instagram probably for close to six months.
Wow. That’s incredible. I’ve never seen this and what’s interesting to me when I looked at this too is it’s just blatant and almost like, like non arbitrary whatsoever and how they’re phrasing this even though it’s a very arbitrary statement. They’re phrasing this as if this is 100% truth. There’s two things that stuck out as false. Information. This person has posted false information. You know, so one somebody determined within the meta because it’s a meta now right within the meta that this is false information, but that was a human being that works on social media that doesn’t work in any of these other industries. You know, that you’re talking about or anything, whether it’s vaccines, whether it’s government, whatever, but then it was reviewed by independent fact checkers. Who the fuck are the independent fact checkers?
Well, now we know I mean, Facebook was set up in a court. Did you see that just a few weeks ago, they had to say in a court of law, that fact checkers are really just people with opinions. Yeah, and so the people with the opinion were different from what I was saying. These people are spreading false information. You know, honestly, it’s crazy to me because to fact check the millions and millions of people on Instagram and now we’re talking millions and millions of conservatives, the amount of man hours that would actually have to go into checking just one, just one meme from one person would be hours it would it would take days to say listen, this is a science. We need to make sure before we flag this person as a liar. That the facts are that this is a lie. That would take days they’re flagging these things within minutes and saying the same stupid memes over and over and over again.
Right on. In contrast, because this is perfect for our show today. I saw this other thing because he was Dr. Jordan Peterson you know, which is a phenomenal dude to follow. You know, I don’t know if you have it all. But he is going on Joe Rogan’s show coming up, and there’s one thing because Joe Rogan, of course, has been censored across the board with a lot of things too. But Spotify of course continues to let him stay on, you know, he signed a big deal with them, and this is in contrast, because there’s a lot of stuff of his that gets flagged but this is what Dr. Jordan Peterson said about him. It’s like they were wondering it’s like how in the world because Joe just goes after the truth right? For the most doesn’t care what it is, you know, and he had the recent doctor on about the vaccines who that entire episode got wiped from the internet. Yeah, yeah, where? Right and this is what Dr. Jordan Peterson said he goes, That’s because he doesn’t lie, or talk down to his audience or manipulate for his own narrow advantage. Those were his words, you know, and I feel that you are exactly the same way so I’m encouraging you to keep going. Keep going.
I will. I will. I like what I’m doing. I like having a voice for conservatives. I like doing a lot of work with candidates here in Arizona, political candidates that stand for the things that I stand for, and I’m enjoying it, but realistically, I have to keep going because the one time I spoke up and stood up and defied mandates changed my life. I mean, I lost my entire career. I lost the ability to maintain that career. I lost the ability to even try to get past what I did, and try to rebuild and honestly, I have considered after my move to Arizona, well, I’m really good at being a salon owner. I’m really good at hair. I’ll just do that again while I’m down here and I can build back up which really sucks because I’d spent 15 years building in Oregon. But I tried and there that desire was completely gone. Like God had just removed the desire to start a salon to be a hairstylist to go through that whole route again, and every door that I tried to open on my own to do that. He just slammed shut, and he said, “You’re going to be on the radio. You’re going to be a podcast, you’re going to be a voice for conservative women. For moms fighting back for their kids. That is your role.” aEvery time I try to step out of that role. There is a door slammed in my face like this is where I’m supposed to be even though I love it, which is of course the way God operates. He’s not going to force me into something I hate. He has literally created a new path for me that I enjoy more and more than I’ve ever enjoyed running a hair salon.
That’s awesome. That’s so cool. I love how you’re saying you know moms who are fighting for control of their kids or however you phrase it, I’m sorry, but this is the thing that boggles my mind too, right? Because the stuff that we’re talking about just like when I go and talk about cybersecurity when I bring you know, because China and Russia they are the largest nation state threat actors that exist on the face of this planet. You know, I mean, look at what’s happening in the Ukraine right now, and people forget that when it was 2015 that Russia hacked the Ukraine to shut down the frickin power grid in order to take the peninsula you know, to make it easier to take the Peninsula that was there. Yeah, and these are the things that still exist today. But when you talk about moms being able to have to fight for their kids rights, and that’s what you’re advocating for. Just like where I’m at. I don’t ever see this as a partisan issue. I see it as a human issue. Right? Because whether you’re liberal, whether you’re conservative, if you’re talking about blue, red, Democrat, Republican, we’re just talking about humanity. The things that you and I are talking about,
That’s one of my hot topics. If you’re right it’s complete. It’s not political, that a mother and a father or or a single mom or single dad should have authority over their own children’s medical decisions. Schools, how they parent what is taught to their kids in the school, we pay taxes to fund and I don’t care what your belief about the science behind masks is. I care that you’re fighting my right to decide for my children, whether it’s healthy or not. Because no one on this earth has more authority over their children than the parents and the government’s trying to take it. Other parents are trying to take it and the school board is trying to take it and honestly I’m getting really fed up with parents who are sitting by and allowing it because as a parent, the minute that that child is in your life, you say “Oh, I would die for this child. I would do anything for this child. I would take a bullet” yet, we’re talking about just simply removing masks from children or removing the authority of the government or the school systems to say you have your child has to be masked, it’s out of your control now, and we are supposed to be fighting harder for our kids than anyone. Yeah, and we are not, most people are not. And no one cares about your kid no one as much as you do. And so if you think no one else is going to step up, even me if you think I’m going to step up and fight harder for your kid. That’s a false statement. It’s a false narrative. You’re the one who cares the most about your kids. So you have to be in that role.
You got it the most horrible thing I think and that whether it’s children or adults, because if you look at kids, you know if we we started there and kept talking about this is let’s say a child doesn’t speak, as well as some of the other kids but they can still communicate okay, this is the same to me as another parents telling you or telling me it’s like you know what? Your kids shouldn’t be in the same class as my kids, unless they’re at the same level of speech. So they need to go to speech therapy right now. In fact, you know what the government’s going to enforce when your kid goes to speech therapy in order to participate with the other kids? Yeah, when that’s a straight up medical decision right there.
Yeah, and you know what? People would say, well, Rick, that sounds ridiculous. That’s such an overreach, that’s such a stretch and yet, it’s really not. Because we’re so close. We’re so close to that and with such a slow boil and slow, slippery slope, that the same people fighting against what we’re saying, would sit here and say that we sound ridiculous, and we sound like conspiracy theorists, and yet, if you were to ask a mom a year ago, if her kid would be forced, you know, to get vaccinated, they would say that that’s ridiculous, and we’re so far from that and yet here we are. Yeah,
It’s mind boggling. The worst part for me as I see this is that and this has been talked about all over the place, too is a lot of these whether it’s masks, whether it’s vaccines, whether it’s anything having to do with this, anything to me, that creates classes of people that pertain to commerce is something that this country is absolutely founded against. Absolutely.
Yeah. There’s so much to say. No, yeah. Well, we are a lot of what a lot of what I feel my role is here in Arizona, and God just continues to kind of reiterate, this is it went from you know, I was a small business owner. I was fighting for business owners, and standing up for business owners and and I still am, and I’m still suing the state of Oregon for all the things but a lot of what I’m seeing now is affecting me not as a small business owner now it’s affecting me as a mom, and I’ve had to pull my kids out of public school because of some of the situations we’re discussing and my rights being violated as a parent, and my radio show is really focused on empowering other women, other parents to to advocate for their kids and fight for their kids, and if you watch there’s some crazy stuff happening in Arizona, like the Scottsdale Unified School District, we’ve got the president of the board Doxxing moms like me, who’s who come to the school board meetings and fight back and speak up sharing pictures of their kids.
Gosh, they had a teacher at Scottsdale, that was accused and found guilty of sexually abusing a mentally retarded special ed student, and this is the new battle. I feel like you know, a year and a half ago it was Lindsey Graham, the small business owner that’s fighting back and I’m going okay, well now I’m not a small business owner. I understand what small business owners are going through still, and yet I lost all my businesses, so that’s really not my fight anymore. I feel like the fight has now become, you know, vaccine mandates which I will never hopefully be forced into because I’m my own entity and I don’t I don’t answer to anyone for a job. But the kids are fighting for the kids. It’s scary to think what’s going to happen to them mentally, socially, and sociologically, being masked up, being forced to mascot, being chastised for not masking out. Yeah, yeah. You’re not a dad. Are you though? I am. Oh, you’re okay. I was like am I like talking to your three kids?
Two are going to be 15 this year and one is turning 12 Just in about a week or so. Okay, and they have not been in public school since even before all this started. So at that point, that was just a decision around education because of the gap that I saw between what the education system was teaching and what my kids really I felt could do, you know, that they weren’t challenged. Everything was meant to be a mass group. I mean, I’ve seen the comparisons of school, public school being you know, like getting them ready to work at a factory or something like that. Because every kid is taught the same, you know, everything is there, and my kids would not get the attention that they needed when they had a question, or it was my daughter would always be like, Oh, well, they just told me to go back and read the book, you know, and I’m like, Well, that’s what they’re there for is to answer the questions and this is adult educators is really good educators out there, too.
But globally, it was like the straw that broke the camel’s back was when we have for me it was when my oldest son, because I’m in technology, right? He had to do this PowerPoints, and they were learning how to use Office 365, Microsoft applications and PowerPoint he had to create this presentation in a group and somebody in the group, one of the other kids that he was in decided to pop in a slide with the word fuck on it, just just right in the middle of it. So then it became corporate punishment by the teacher because none of the kids in his six kid group would speak up, and nobody really knew who did it. within that group, either. So all the kids got punished. I was like, this is stupid, because he came home he was my son was so upset. I’m like, Dude, you have a right to be upset. You have a right to be angry. He’s like, I need to say some words. You know, and this was, you know, four years ago when he was 11. You know, I’m like, Dude, look, let them let them rip. Because of justified and,
The school system. I feel like I’m having a hard time remembering of course the things that I was taught in high school specifically, but the school system I feel like it’s supposed to be the curriculum is supposed to be directed more towards or we should be directing it more towards real life experiences and what’s going to happen when you become an adult. So fiscal responsibility, knowledge of how the economy works. Yeah, basic math, you know, things that prepare you for whatever career you choose, you know the basics.
Yeah, or even like this, the basics of technology, right? Yeah, I showed. I showed him I’m like, dude, all you do is click up here, and then click down here at the activity log, and it will show exactly who made the change At what time did they figure it out? Oh, yeah, I showed him I’m like, you go. I’m like, your teacher doesn’t know this. Like no, I’m like dude, that’s the project.
Yeah. The teachers are teaching them to do something that the teacher doesn’t even know how to do. Yeah, you got it. I’m so weird, and, and even as you’re telling that story, I’m seeing the slippery slope of the potential of what you said right? So he’s forced to work in a group of people that may or may not have the same motivation, skills, determination, some people don’t like it’s kind of a socialist thing when you put six kids into a group and say you’re all responsible for this project. That’s kind of a socialist mentality. Now it’s like, “Well, my kid is working harder. He’s got a parent that supports him and wants to help him with his homework.” We are in a different class, potentially, than the five other kids that you’ve grouped him with. His greatest dependence on it. Yeah, and so when you start creating that in a classroom, you automatically start seeing parents who are seeing the difference in and it starts at home, right? It starts at home with parents that either support their kid, help them do their homework, brush them off. Things like that. Creating a different class, because the education system did it on their own. Yeah,
No doubt, no doubt. That’s when we decided to pull them out, and it was the best choice we ever made. It was a little rough for three months just because they were conditioned to the processes that they were in in the system that they were in. But I’ve seen issues with education. So obviously with everything shifting to remote learning over the past couple years to and this is about, you know, when you’re advocating for your kids, that’s really what we’re talking about here, and I’m glad that they were already in the essence of remote learning because they had zoom classrooms, some of the stuff was self led, self taught with videos and self paced, which is phenomenal. You know, Bridgeway Academy for anyone who’s listening right now. It is just a phenomenal program. There’s a lot of live classes and there’s a lot of self paced classes too with videos. It’s great. They work in groups over zoom, you know, they’re still involved in local activities. Here.
But when they’re still in, or when the remote learning took place. I saw a lot of teachers getting frustrated around kids sitting in their homes, because now this was another thing that kids were forced to do. Right when the schools were shut down. Granted, the teachers were at the same time, which is still another issue. But still it was government mandated that the school shut down. Yeah. And then the educators which is where they didn’t really have the they weren’t prepared for starters. But second, they weren’t taking into account the considerations of the kids because in a lot of different areas of our country. Some parents almost require that their child care, right? At a certain age, I’ve got no issues with that. But when the teachers got mad because a dog ran across the screen and I saw this it was a story coming out of California with this that the teacher said, you know, gave the kid detentions or some kind of punishment because the dog ran across the screen or something like that. You understand that? It’s a family of five people that are living in a three bedroom 1000 square foot apartment because that’s all that they can afford right now. And it’s not the kids choice for the environment that they’re in neither is it the parents and they were forced into this scenario. Absolutely. And you’re going to punish the kid because of this. Yeah.
One of the things that drove me absolutely insane during the school shutdowns with moms, and they’re still they’re still saying this. When mom stood up and advocated that our kids need to be in school. Yeah, the left’s you know, the mob culture would say the school system is not your child care. And no woman births kids and says it’s fine. They’ll be in childcare when they’re when they go to kindergarten, you know, when you put your kid in school because you pay taxes for that school, and your child is attending from 8am to three, if you’re a single parent, or you got out of an abusive relationship or marriage because you thought I can now provide for myself because my child is in school, I can leave this abusive husband and I can get out and I can start a new life. That’s like you know, whatever.
Rare percentage scenario, but it’s a scenario where a single parent can provide for themselves because the child is great school age, then yes, I I’ve planned my entire life, my entire career, my choices around the idea that the school that I fund, that that teaches my kids like gives me time to provide a living for those same kids. Now you’ve taken that away. Honestly, I don’t know what single parents did. During that time. You either quit your job to stay home with a kid that is now being schooled on a computer or you go to work and leave your kid at home. But if you quit your job to stay home with your child, which is the safest decision, you also can’t feed or provide for that child. I would love to find out what a single parent did in that situation. They devastated families when they did that. They gave the parents no choice. They gave the child no choice, and they gave the teachers no choice. The teachers I sat there watched my son try to do a computer Zoom class, and most of the class was teaching the kids how to work the zoom. And I was like he doesn’t need to know how to work zoom. He is in first grade, and can we move on to the alphabet or whatever it is please. They created an entirely different job for teachers that actually distracted them from educating the child and put on them a quick you’re gonna spend this year relearning how to educate on a computer. Yeah, like they lost that entire year.
Yeah, we talked about you know, I’m sure there’s listeners like oh, that you know, that was a year ago or through that phase. It was just a week ago because of a meeting in Chicago. Just a week ago. They said all the teachers and students home again for the Chicago Public School System. Because of the latest wave that’s going on. This was just a week ago. You know, and I read this morning that they came to an agreement with the teachers union as far as when they’re going to go back, you know, so it was negotiated at this point. But so it was a week ago because this is the same thing as when they instituted the vaccination mandate in Chicago and the surrounding county that you have to be vaccinated in order to eat in a public restaurant or be in an indoor gym or anything like that. This just happened a week ago and they sent the schools home.
That is crazy. It’s unreal. To think that at one point we really did think two weeks on the curve. And week three, I mean, at week three, I was like you guys like you live your life anymore, and there are some people who still think that this really is for everyone’s safety.
That you really made me get a belly laugh there because I made it this point that was almost like that phrase was out of my mind. You know, I completely forgot about it because now it’s like, okay, we’re just pushing through at this point, and I don’t pay attention too much, except for the huge things that obviously affect my everyday life. It’s like, well, no problem. I’m just not gonna eat dinner there. That’s no big deal. Yeah, yeah. I don’t care. There’s plenty of other restaurants you know that they’re like, we’re gonna do our own thing just because we feel that it’s safe and it’s your choice. That’s all good.
Yeah. Two weeks to flatten the curve. That’ll be the biggest joke in American history.
Yeah, no kidding. No kidding. I’m sure these are things you talk about on your show. Oh, yeah. I love the name of it. She’s So Right.
Yeah, you get the poem there. You get the fun.
I get it. Yeah.
My mother in law is my biggest fan. She’s my biggest supporter. She’s amazing. I actually have to tell her you know, sometimes I’m not that cool. Like, be careful. Yeah. But she Every time she’s with me, someone asks me about my radio show, and I say it’s called the she’s so right show. She has to tell them. You get it like the right, conservative like writing. I’m like, I think they get it. I don’t think that they think that I think that I’m always right.
Yeah, yeah. So it’s still the part I mean, right or left, whatever. It’s still the thing that that really grips me is that it should for me it should never be that way.
Right? It shouldn’t be I wish I could go back a year and a half ago, two years ago. I don’t wish I wouldn’t wish to take back anything. I don’t have any regrets but I didn’t use to. I didn’t even still probably label myself a right leaning, you know, Republican, whatever. I still try to just use the word conservative because my beliefs tend to lean conservative they’re all faith based eccentric cetera. But um, what happened to me, forced me to take kind of an extreme ism, because the extremism placed on me and toward me and directed at me and with so much hate and violence, and vindictiveness. It changed I mean, it changed who I am, it changed how I handle certain things, how I talk about certain topics. I mean, honestly, obviously, it’s been a catalyst in my life if I’m like on a conservative radio talk show now but something I never would have done a year and a half ago, I was just a salon owner. But um, it’s it.
It’s so sad that even I I feel like you know, I play a part in being divisive, but mainly because I know that no one is speaking up or there’s not a lot of women being able to speak up about some of the topics and speaking up about because their kids are going to get threatened their job, they’re gonna lose their job, they’re going to get canceled culture. These are the things happening to people like in Scottsdale that are speaking up against, you know, the CRT and some of the politics in the schools. There. Yeah., and it’s like I feel like I have to. I’ve been given the opportunity to, and as much as I hate that people would consider me, you know, a divider in the political realm. The line for me was forced to be drawn when I got canceled, and I said, “Well, I picked my sight.”
Oh, right on. When did you finish your book?
Finished my book about six months ago, and just published it in September.
It was recent, right?.
Yeah and it’s been such a blessing. I’ve had so much positive feedback about people that have read it and gotten inspired, and, you know, to me, I’m still my main purpose. is still to encourage people to be non compliant and to stand up so that we don’t lose all of our rights as Americans. That’s my number one goal, and the book is sort of a you know, I did. I stood up for my rights. I stood tall, I was completely targeted for doing so and yet, I am blessed for it, and I have no regrets and it wouldn’t change a thing, and it’s sort of a guidebook, if you will, for how to find the strength to fight for your rights and fight for your kids and stand up for what you believe in.
That’s phenomenal. What’s next for you?
What’s next? Yeah, cuz it’s, I mean, a year ago when you’re on it’s like, you had no idea you’d be here today. I had no idea. You have no idea you were gonna be there.
Yeah, who knows, you’re gonna need to mark this date and a year from now to be on again. Sweet Well, the beautiful thing about my life now is that I never expected to be where I am today. If you would have asked me two years ago, I would have had the salon in Salem with 25 stylists. I’d be running my extension company and that’s where I would be so every day, I wake up and I sort of give my journey to God and my life and say, open the doors that you want to open, close the ones that you don’t want me to go through, and this is something that this catalyst in my life is something I could not control. Even as I was watching it happen, and I was watching the canceled culture destroy everything. I tried to say I can get control of this. I can fix this, ano live video on Facebook was fixing it. I mean, it was completely out of my control, and I’ve learned I think that that was supposed to happen to me, and I was supposed to be on this new journey and God had a bigger plan for me. And I believe he has a bigger plan and I have no idea what it is, and if I did, I would just go get it right or it would be accessible. Um, so people say are you going to run for office and I say I don’t know. If God calls me to run for office. I’ll run for office. Are you going to run for Senate? I don’t know. They’re gonna write another book. I don’t know. Is your show going to be nationally syndicated? I hope so. I don’t know. So what is next is just as a surprise to you as it is to me. Pretty excited about it. Could you imagine living life like that?
That’s the adventure. That’s what it’s supposed to be. Yeah,
Yeah. I’ve got my own dreams. I’ve got my own goals and visions, and I don’t know if that’s gonna be what God has for me.
For sure. Even as I’m acquiring companies right now, cuz that’s the public roll up play that I’m doing. You know, there’s some there. It’s like they’re looking to be to sell and like so what’s your five year business plan? I’m like, I don’t have one. I know what I’m doing. Or two. Yeah, exactly. Right. But that’s going to dictate what’s going to be the next year or two after that. You know, all I know is that the team that I have in place is solid. I know where my heart is. I know what I’m going after. I know the general direction that I’m headed in. I know what I’m looking at as the outcome, and this is for anybody, right? You know, especially if you’re a parent with kids, oh my gosh, you know, right. If you’re thinking oh, they’re going to be a doctor, a lawyer, a carpenter or whatever you know that you’re probably going to be wrong first.
When they say they want to be in five is not really what they end up being usually.
Exactly right on so but it’s important to advocate for them every step of the way. You know, because some of those things and this is where the conversation is one of the some of those things could quite literally be threatening some of their dreams. Ambitions could be threatened by overreach by other people imposing certain things on their lives. So as a parent, it’s up to us to stand up for our kids.
Absolutely. I wonder, as even as you say that this is actually something I’ve never thought about, is how their life was changed by what I did, and the decisions that I now have to make. So I’m not homeschooling, but I put them in a private Christian school. Obviously, that’s going to be a change for the better for them. But what in the course of their life has changed? I remember two years ago, bringing my daughter to work and like she’s going to be a hairstylist. When she grows up, I’m going to teach her. I’m going to do her extensions when she’s 12. I had it all thought out in my mind, and now I’m talking about well, I’m going to speak at these churches in California. I should take her with me how amazing for her to see this is what Mommy does.
She fights with people, she stands up, she’s, she’s bold, she’s brave. She’s an inspiration. That’s who she’s seeing me be well, that’s changed the course of her life. Because I’m no longer like you should be a hairstylist. I’ll say, oh, you should have a radio talk show someday or whatever it is, but yeah, these are the decisions that we’re making as parents and these decisions that are being forced on us, they are altering the course of our kid’s life. And that’s something that we need to be thinking about. With every move we make and every you know, a choice that we are forced to make for them and which ones we’re going to obey and which ones we’re going to disobey, and thanks for that little token of knowledge there, Rick, I was you kind of just changed my day. Think about my kids’ future now from morning till night.
Really cool. Everyone can find you at real Lindsey Graham on Instagram and you’re going to get that message I’m sure that I talked about. Follow Lindsey, regardless of what Instagram tells you and stay on track with her because this isn’t. This isn’t a political thing. This isn’t left or right. This is human. These are parents for their kids, and go listen to her show. She’s So Right.
She’s so right. Yeah, guys, if you want to buy my book, you can buy it on patriot barbie.com. I actually, if you buy it with me, I autograph and sign and send out the cookbook myself if you buy them.
Yeah, that’s phenomenal. Yeah.
So thank you so much. for having me.
Thanks for being here.
