Hello, again!

I know I’ve been away a long time, and I apologize for that. (Okay, no one currently reads my blog, but I’m saying “sorry” anyway.) Every time I tried to write a post about Newtown, CT and the slaughter there, I choked up. Allow me to say I believe our deadly weapons should be at… More Hello, again!

What Private Enterprise Does for Disaster Relief

Mitt Romney is arrogant enough to believe private enterprise could provide disaster relief better than the federal government. Fortunately, New York’s Attorney General knows better. Quick to point to looting during a disaster (before it even happens), I haven’t heard conservatives using that same outrage to condemn price gouging.

Explain That to your Daughter: Democrat Mom to Republican Dad

Explain That to your Daughter. The most compelling argument I’ve ever read about the Romney/Republican ticket. LGBTQ rights, abortions, birth control, rape, state regulation of vaginas, Social Security and Medicare, student loans, stock market crash, and basic human decency–the conservatives-against-compassion will extend government control to help the richest and destroy the rest. As a Facebook… More Explain That to your Daughter: Democrat Mom to Republican Dad
