Ironies and Paradoxes about Gun Laws and Ownership in the U.S.
Another paradox is the Second Amendment. Guns have changed quite a bit since the 18th Century when the Bill of Rights was ratified. Back then, guns took time to load and pistols were only accurate at close range.Read more →
Mayor Alvin Brown DO NOT RETURN FUNDRAISING MONEY
Do you know how unprecendented it is for a paid ad newspaper to hyperlink to two pages of a blogger in a content piece, especially a link as enticing as “you crusty ol’ c–.” This is worth hundreds of thousands in the PR world. For the record, just talking about someone does not require linking back. Something isn’t right. This is a big coup for Schorsch. Wonder who told Smith to do it.Read more →
The Women’s Party of America Unleashes on Congress
The U.S. Constitution is pretty clear about our Nation’s purpose if you just read the Preamble:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.Read more →
Supernanny Vs. Supermommy 2014
Yesterday, in between all the Fourth of July family celebrating, my sister and I relaxed in front of the television and happily got sucked into a Supernanny Marathon on the UP Network, only something between us had changed. Jo, the brilliant nanny from England with all the answers seemed to be doling out absurd advice. […]Read more →

Whose High Heels Are Dancing on My Ceiling?
For the past several years, I can’t help but notice a faint sound of tapping over my head. It’s not exactly loud enough to be sure of its location or even what it is exactly, but I’m almost convinced it’s the sound of high heels tap dancing on the glass ceiling above my head…only I’m pretty sure whoever is up there has put down a hardwood floor on top of the glass ceiling to secure it in place.Read more →
India Can’t Save Women from Rape: Creates Gun for Her
It’s hard to look at India and not wonder what happened to the once thriving culture and home to the man of peace, Mahatma Gandhi. Today, it is defined by violence against women that is brutal, systemic and pervasive, leaving no individual woman safe from its grip on society.Read more →
A Fact Brief: Why the Government Shutdown
There are a few things I know about healthcare. Under the Bush administration, the Republicans did nothing. I have seen no alternative to my rising premiums and I can think of no other issue that affects every single American. Congress has never had to petition or beg their insurance company to cover a sick child or an experimental drug. Congress has their own high end coverage.Read more →
What’s with the Pope’s Prada Shoes?
I remain embarrassed by how the Church conducts itself in public and still no one seems at all shocked. I mean, what’s the deal with the Pope’s Prada shoes?Read more →
Would Celebrities Refuse to Make Violent Movies in Defense of Gun Control
To me, actors do nothing more than people who act like people who do things. They aren’t the real people in the trenches every day trying to eek out a living, but they play them in the movies and make millions doing it, then we pay to go see them act like us. Quite the […]Read more →
How Powerful are Women? We’ll See…
Whenever women make strides into powerful positions, there are a number of people ready to demean them in order to minimize their influence. The lack of respect from political pundits on both sides is destructive, but for “conservative” CNN pundit Erick Erickson to liken women’s speeches at the Democratic National Convention as “The Vagina Monologues” […]Read more →
The Photo of Shame
WHERE ARE THE WOMEN???? Shame is such an icky word, but I use it here without hesitation. Yesterday, February 16, 2012, a group of sat on a panel to discuss the issue of covering birth control for women. I have nothing more to say. Draw your own conclusions. Don’t forget to vote.

The Catholic Assault on Women, AGAIN
The recent women’s health policy announced by the Obama administration has caused a blizzard of posts, comments, tweets and protests from…… MEN! Yes. The loudest MAN has been the Catholic Church. I was raised a Catholic and not a “new” Catholic. My family can trace our roots back to the crucifixion. I am half Irish, […]Read more →
Just when women make strides, they appear nude in ESPN magazine
WHY? I thought about just posting that one word. When I was a girl, few women were raised up to the level of idolatry in sports. They were a joke to many male athletes and the thought of women achieving success in any sports’ field was absurd. Perhaps, it still is. None of the female […]Read more →
