Now, before you get your panties in a bunch, I am not against mom bloggers. I am a mom blogger myself and blog almost everyday at www.thismamasays.com. I created this entire web site based off some content I had read online about how “unethical” mom bloggers are becoming.
It’s been 100 years since March 8th was designated International Women’s Day, and women worldwide have yet to achieve the equality they envisioned so long ago. In times of war, they are still the primary targets of systematic rape, torture, displacement and pillaging....more
I just saw a story on ”Sunday Morning” about the man who founded Tom’s Shoes. His name isn’t Tom, it’s Blake Mycoskie. ”Tom’s” stands for “shoes for tomorrow.” Cameras followed Blake while he gave children their first-ever pair of shoes. I’ve always loved watching a man tie shoes for a child, and today’s show explained how that simple act represents much more.
This past weekend, thousands of conservatives descended on the Marriott in Washington, D.C. for the annual CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference). Ten thousand conservatives, to be exact. From all corners of the country. In one place. To meet each other.Sounds terrifying, right? Well, trust me. It is. And I'm conservative....more
I’ve worried for a long time about animals in captivity being forced to perform. It feels morally wrong. This time, the whale killing the trainer decided it for me. I’ve also been increasingly uncomfortable at zoos. Now I believe we shouldn’t have them....more
I wanted to really get to this topic. I myself, have been a victim of "comment bashing". When I wan on twitter the other night, I noticed I wasn't the only mom blogger that this was happening to. It is a crucial issue that needs to be resolved. While there's nothing we can do about these harassing comments, we all need to get along and stop the bickering from one social media mom to another.I am not sure if any of you out there have been a victim of comment harassment, but it's time for this nonsense bullying to stop.*From one social media mom to another*...more
Today is Super Bowl Sunday, and even if your hometown’s team is one of the competitors, none has completely escaped chatter about the brain-injury controversy—from CNN’s report on the long-lasting damage suffered by former players, after years of impacts like those at left, to stories from ...more
When I arrived in London that November morning, the 2003 Bush & Blair protest was well underway. I quickly managed to get to my London Bridge hostel and drop off my backpack to join the march, already at Waterloo Bridge. There were tens of thousands of people and they were all chanting and carrying banners and signs. There were several amusing effigies and there was a palpable buzz in the atmosphere. Because I was on my own, I wanted to be sure to find others to march with for safety. I managed to find the Democrats Abroad banner and joined in with them....more
I swear that I will one day get over the miserableness that was the previous ensuing decade, but for now I will continue to harp on yet another failure of the previous decade. In January 2009, President Obama started the year off right by signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act into law.
