You gotta be kidding me!

Just when I think people are getting a clue, they go and get all silly again. This newest concept that has the American people screaming in outrage has me totally flummoxed. We live in a society where the public honestly believes that if one is in any way a celebrity, we are entitled to know absolutely EVERYTHING about their ... Read More

#atozchallenge: Justification (a political poem)

How do we justify? We always DO. Because I am to the LEFT, through and through? Or maybe others, they may cite, To the RIGHT is what is right. But between me and you, and maybe he and she … Is it possible that there might a middle road be? Could maybe a bit of RIGHT be wrong? ... Read More

Looking for some stories

Quick not to any of my female readers (I am allowing myself the delusion that I have many 🙂 ). A friend of my sister’s (Woman Wielding Words) is doing an article for Ladies Home Journal. She needs some contributions from woman ages 35 – 55 who are from the US. What she is looking ... Read More

Another call to arms

It has always been my impression that one of the core values of the US Constitution is the concept of “innocent until proven guilty“. That encompasses the basic idea of freedom of thought and expression. One cannot be condemned for something without having proof that they actually did something wrong. It is ... Read More

Tree Wisdom

In the last few years, We the People have displayed the extremes of humanity’s potential. We have pulled together to heal when disaster hits, while in the next moment we condemn others for thinking differently than us. We shout “Love Thy Neighbor!” even as we throw rocks at them. We boldly fight for the right of choice, ... Read More

Of the People, For the People, By the People

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the ...

I am trying a little experiment here. It is akin to one I tried a few years ago on résumé posting sites. I was (as is often the case in my life) looking for work, and was fed up with the minimal response when I posted my résumé on several sites. So as a test, I posted a new ... Read More

C is for Caring in a Crazy world

My “C” post a day late … Humans can be scary. They have great capacity for selfishness. They seem to relish power … especially power over those they perceive as weaker than themselves. This is no great revelation, and I am probably not even saying something that you don’t know very well yourself. All one has to ... Read More

Enough already!!

I haven’t had a healthy rant in a bit, and feel I am about due. Fortunately ’tis the season for humans, who have an idiocy gene built right in, to fully embrace their inherent gift. And if we cannot laugh at our own idiocy, even as we rage at it, well … might as well call it a day. ... Read More

The Power of Women's Voices (via Woman Wielding Words)

Just felt this was worth sharing 🙂 The post I had planned on writing before I was sidetracked by the disaster in Japan speaks louder because of that same incident. Given the disturbing attempts in the United States toward limiting women’s freedom, rights, and basic equality I have been thinking a lot about women’s roles ... Read More
