Black Lives Matter

I was going to write a post about being entirely disgusted to find myself cited by the infamous Ann Coulter in her 2009 book Guilty: the blah blah I hate liberals they are ruining the world book to make me money crap fest. She wrote and released this book when I was in the worst of the throws of my Lupus diagnosis. You know, having strokes, losing organs, being hospitalized and having multiple surgeries ....more

I Believe

I don’t want to talk about Michael Brown. I don’t want to talk about Trayvon Martin. I don’t want to talk about Tamir Rice ....more

No Fight at MY Fridge

I’m not going to lie, this family, sometimes, has (!gasp!) fast food for dinner. We allow our children to have pop (you crazy people call it soda) while at a theme park and occasionally at home or elsewhere if the situation warrants – we love pop for belly aches, or to wake up sleepy kids who were up late gaming (another no-no) because they like the flavor or because Mom or Dad has one sitting on the table and they want a sip of something. We even, now sit down when I tell you this, feed our children junk food, sugary cereal, sports drinks filled with sugar! ...more

When You & Your Dirty Kids Are Just Another Number

It’s been awhile now since I stood before the judge in that cold courtroom on Wilshire. Since I heard the worlds “entirely disabled” and “incapable of any work in this economy.” It was like a punch in the gut and a weight off my shoulders all at once. I would continue to collect my long-term disability benefits, as contracted to me by my employer…however this appeal meant the long-term disability benefit insurance company could now deduct what I would be receiving from Social Security and what my kids would be receiving, since their Mom was now entirely disabled ....more

No Fight at MY Fridge

Kids absolutely love to do all the things we as parents want them NOT to do. I'm certainly not going to make food and drink a battlefield when there are so many more important wars to be fought from drugs to sex to education....more

An Attack on Valerie Jarrett is an Attack on ALL Women

You might have missed my twitter rant over the weekend. I had officially HAD IT with the attacks on Senior White House Advisor Valerie jarred and I basically LOST IT via a TweetRage: RAGE inducing. An entire article on why POTUS should fire @vj44 with 0 reasons given http://t.co/iGfYSBI8xH They’d never say this of a man — Erin Kotecki Vest (@QueenofSpain) November 8, 2014 & WHY should POTUS shake up a damn thing? ...more

The Gray Area

It would be every easy to say politics are black and white, especially in today’s climate. R vs D! Blue vs Red! ...more

It’s a SPOOOKY Halloween: I’m VOTING REPUBLICAN

No really. It’s going to happen. And it REALLY does not get any more scary than voting GOP ....more

Hey Mom, What Does “Die Feminist Gamer” Mean?

My 9-year old daughter can jump in and out of a first person shooter game and then quickly morph back into a bunny to go to someone’s “den” for a bunny dance party. She’s a gamer. A girl gamer ....more

I’m Over Being Ashamed & Voting NO on Prop 46

I landed myself in the hospital against this week. Despite feeling relatively well. Ok, that’s a lie ....more
