I Am Not Ashamed To Be A Feminist

I am not ashamed to be a feminist. I’m not worried what people on the blogosphere will think of my “audacity” to call out what I see. I’m not going to stop talking about the injustice and equality that women in my generation and the generations following do face and will face. I use my voice to speak out, and I will continue to do so....more

I Don't Want to Wake Up In 1972....

There are a myriad of reasons that, without a doubt, I will vote for President Obama's second term...such a myriad, in fact, that I am only going to discuss one reason.  .  My daughter's uterus.I am a happily married woman, and I couldn't imagine life without my children.  Like any parent, my ultimate goal is to raise them in such a way that they are able to be happy, successful, productive members of the human race. ...more

Women, If Romney Wins, We Should Be Very, Very Afraid

According to yesterday’s USA Today, Mitt Romney is leading in the polls with women voters.  I am against using scare tactics in the media in order to gain votes.  You know, those messages from both presidential campaigns that in essence say, “If you vote for my opponent you should be very, very afraid because ...more

Mom-In-Chief, But Not on the Payroll

Michelle Obama and Ann Romney are prominently featured in their spouse's presidential campaigns. Both have made prime-time speeches during the Tampa and Charlotte conventions, which were parsed in detail by the media. Did they make their husbands more likeable?

Why is this still an issue 47 years later?

 Boy, the things you will miss when you are out of commission for a few days! I come out of the hospital only to see that the debate over birth control has heated up and I have to pick my jaw up off of the floor after some of the things I have read....more
Yes, I am as pissed off about this as you are.  I know this was posted in 2012, but not much has ...more


The Freeze. Here and at Augusta National Golf Course

I knew it was too good to be true.  My summer shirts are still hanging on the bottom rack of my closet because I knew there was no way that we would have spring from here on out.  Mother nature has been teasing us with temperatures warm enough to trick the trees and bushes into blooming 6 weeks early....more
