Freedom of Information Day

      No Comments on Freedom of Information Day

Given the current testimony coming out of the Dominion vs. Fox “News” case, this is an important day to recognize. As Americans we have the right to know what our government is doing (with the exception of items of national security).  We also have come to expect that news outlets- especially well known, national ones – will also access this… Read more »

Why Not Indeed

      No Comments on Why Not Indeed

We all have that friend of family member who frequently posts things from some obscure site no one’s ever heard of with the caption “Why Won’t the Mainstream Media Cover This”? Of course, everyone with an IQ over 12 knows the answer.  Because it’s complete and utter BS.  It’s the invention of a sad person longing to get noticed.   Frequently… Read more »

I’m Torn About Tua

      No Comments on I’m Torn About Tua

At the time I’m writing this I’m anxiously awaiting the return of Tuanigamanuolepola Tagovailoa as the starting QB of the Miami Dolphins.

Some of the dumber… Read more »

I’m offering a different perspective… Read more »

Grand Expectations

      No Comments on Grand Expectations

I have been a very vocal advocate of the child free life.  My husband and I have been married for 16 years and we knew going in we were not going to have human children (we have cats). I’m brining it up again not to beat that drum again, but rather to bring up another gripe of mine.  The expectation… Read more »

You Can’t Blame Joe for That

      No Comments on You Can’t Blame Joe for That

As long as the United States as existed blaming the President for things that he didn’t actually do/ control/ contribute to has been one of our national pastimes.  It’s easy to blame someone you’ve never met for all your problems.  Social media makes this easier to do than ever. Joe Biden is certainly no stranger to public critique, having been… Read more »
