Looking to bust your stereotypes. 

Tired that the Christian Left doesn't really have enough of a voice in the world.

It's lonely out here: planning for a natural childbirth

Who knew we were such a nation of drug pushers? Here is the conversation I am having at least once a day, with moms and non-moms alike. Them: “Are you taking childbirth classes”? Me: “Yes, I’m taking hypnobirthing. I want to have a natural childbirth.” Them: “Good luck with that (wink wink). Or, “Yeah I did too, you’ll get over it.” Or: “You’re nuts! Take the drugs”! ...more

Winter for Conservatism?

Last night I received hate mail and was at the business end of scathing Twittentary, from both sides, oddly enough. Democrats were angry with me because I disagreed with them on things and Republicans, well, there were some hot-headed Republicans that railed against me when I exploded on air and online about the deficiencies of the party. At some point in political discourse we must have honesty. ...more

Well, it all comes down to who the GOP sees as the "real conservatives".  The ...more

The Palin Mistake

I had an interesting experience while volunteering for Barack Obama's campaign tonight.  The room was packed with women.  Dozens of women in one tiny little local office.  They were all there for the same reason I was: they were terrified of the idea of Sarah Palin as VP, or worse, as President of the United States of America.  Fear of Palin and her radical, anti-woman views had moblized the whole room of us.  One woman had brought her young son with her.  He ate his supper and colored with crayons while his mother called voters in New Hampshire.  I enjoyed the sort of warm-fuzzy fe ...more

Send Sarah In

John McCain has issued a statement asking "that the first presidential debate be postponed and he will suspend his campaign so he can focus on the economy." To which I say, fantastic! This is a real world scenario.  This is the primary equivalent of McCain being elected to office, kicking the bucket, and Sarah Palin having to step up to the plate. ...more

Could You Survive The Great Depression?

I had a telephone conversation with my “new” Momma and my Daddy this morning.  We spoke of many things one of them being their trip to Hawaii by way of California.  The other thing we discussed was the state of our nation’s economy.  Both of these intelligent septuagenarians said the same thing to me.  They said that my generation, the baby boomer generation, would not make it throug ...more
