MY LAWYER SAID I DIDN’T DO IT

When I read the story of the little 18-month old who fell 11 decks to her death from a cruise ship, I was horrified.  I chose not to have children so I couldn’t even begin to imagine the loss felt by her parents.  The initial reports said the baby was accidentally dropped by her grandfather […]

WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

That’s the first thing I said to myself when I heard about the $190,000 grant received by the University of Washington from the National Institute on Drug Abuse which will partially fund a study to explore the effects of marijuana on an unborn baby.  Between me and my husband, we have almost 50 years of […]

I SAID IT BEFORE AND I’LL SAY IT AGAIN

In 2011, I wrote a column entitled “Let’s Ban Another ‘N’ Word” because I was sick and tired of people using references to Hitler and his Nazi regime to label and describe people and their actions with whom they disagree.  I’m talking about people and their actions here in the United States.  Whatever the situation […]

THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING!

With few exceptions, every time I turn on a news program or open a website, the so-called reporters or journalists are screaming “the sky is falling!” In the mainstream media, there’s always some catastrophic reportage about the President Trump and/or Mrs. Trump.  So many great things are happening in this country, but you’d never know […]

DECADES OF DOING NOTHING

Despite what the dishonest media want us to believe, President Trump didn’t create the current illegal immigration mess.  Congress and the courts created it and it’s been around for decades.  And President Trump isn’t the first to bring our attention to illegal immigration.  There was a time when Liberals, such as Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, […]

SEATTLE’S HEAD TAX – PUNISHING SUCCESS

When I read the Seattle City Council passed the head tax 9-0, I was stunned.  Although the original proposal called for a $500 tax per employee, the Council voted “yes” to the reduced $275 after the Mayor threatened to veto the original bill.  The punitive tax will affect for-profit companies that gross at least $20 […]

IF DONALD TRUMP CURED CANCER….

If Donald Trump cured cancer, this is exactly what I would expect to happen.  The Left would be outraged and I would expect headlines in the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, on CNN and MSNBC to read, “What Took Him So Long?”  “My Body, My Choice!”  “Trump Cures Cancer But Unable to Tackle the Common […]

SILENCING THE OPPOSITION

  For the Left in this country, free speech doesn’t matter.  Opposing views need to be silenced.  Period.  Although we hear all the time, “let’s have a national conversation,” the Left really doesn’t want to hear anything other than their own voices. The latest case on point surrounds the recent shooting at the Marjory Stoneman […]

GUN CONTROL AND THE LEFT’S CONTINUED PREDICTABILITY, HYPOCRISY AND DISREGARD OF EVIL

  I wouldn’t bet we’ll have three straight days of sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest, but I’d always bet on the Left’s predictability, hypocrisy and disregard of evil when it comes to mass shootings.  The Left’s knee-jerk reaction will always be more “gun control.”   Whether it is the Sandy Hook shooting, the Las […]

CAN WE LEGISLATE EVIL?

If you don’t believe evil exists, you might as well stop reading and continue to believe that gun control will cure all of society’s ills.  I wrote about this at the time of the Sandy Hook shooting, and I’m writing again because the left doesn’t seem to get the point. Having worked as an attorney […]
