So, anyway, I read this post on Facebook last night, and I thought I would post my own thoughts about it. I’ve never heard of this lady, nor of her site, MomBabble.com. Apparently, at least 219,941 people have heard of her, and “like” her. The link to the post is here: https://www.facebook.com/MomBabble/photos/a.771916006211188/2675148565887913/?type=3&theater It’s a long … Continue reading ON ELLEN AND GEORGE…
A weird thing happened yesterday. A friend, who is politically opposite minded from me, asked what I thought about New York State’s new abortion law. I told him I’d have to get back with him because I really had not read much about it at all. Last night I did a google search and I … Continue reading Anything but Smart

So it’s no surprise that a lot of the … Continue reading A Few Good Men(forgot what they stood for)
It's been seventeen days since the Pulse shooting and I still do not know what to say about it. I have much to say. I have many thoughts. I have many opinions. I have much anger, rage, bitterness, and sadness. Most people have a vision of "us" as a very passive, accepting, non-judging, easy-going lot. … Continue reading My Pulse Is Still Racing
It is but on a rare occasion that I will not make a joke about a tragedy. It is one of my flaws, I suppose. I say something woefully inappropriate at just the wrong time and to just the right number of people. This morning, I found myself in a peculiar situation. It was no … Continue reading It’s Different When It Happens On Your Street
A few weeks ago, I was listening to my friend’s radio show on a local station as I do every morning. Surprisingly, I agree with a lot of what he rants about, even though the station is considered a “conservative” station. For the most part he takes as many shots at GOP lawmakers as he … Continue reading Get Your Rainbow Rockets Ready: We Have a Religious Institution to Hijack!
