Today, I'm regretting raising well informed clever children.As I was driving my daughters and my older daughter's boyfriend to the Avengers last night, I went on a political rant, which is typical for me.My family has been ignoring me for years. My daughter's boyfriend, comes from a prominent Republican family here in town. Quietly he asked, "how many books written by Republicans have you read?" I was impressed with this question for two reasons: he remembered that I read a lot and he had the guts to ask it. I want my children's special friends to be gutsy, but not too gutsy....more

I hate her cause she preaches til shes blue in the face about abstinence-not only a completely unrealistic thing to teach kids,but the stupid woman stands by it even in face of the fact that it doesnt WORK. Her own kid is knocked up & last time I checked she wasnt exactly married. Im sorry,but Im pretty sure that one needs to have SEX in order for one to GET pregnant.
