Probably not. In years past, I’d think this was a pretty funny story, but, today, as the nation is on the brink of a fiscal disaster, I’m not laughing. A California Democratic lawmaker was lamenting the idea of having to possibly give up her salary if the government actually shutdown last week. Yep, on a […]

Tax Day, April 15th

Link: Tax Day, April 15th President Obama’s solution to the debt crises is to raise taxes on individuals making $200-250K yet I’ve heard nothing from him about why General Electric didn’t pay one penny in taxes in 2010 for U.S. profits of $5,000,000,000.00 – that’s right $5 billion. Considering that GE’s Chairman and CEO Jeffrey […]

Sen. Paul Rand Talking About the Budget

Link: Sen. Paul Rand Talking About the Budget I like what Sen. Rand Paul has to say.  What do you think?


Link: Gotcha! Anyone who’s read my blog knows that I’d rather set myself on fire than watch an episode of “The View.”  But I did see this short clip on The Factor the other night which I thought was priceless.  Elizabeth Hasselbeck actually left Joy Behar speechless.


I was talking with an attorney friend of mine who told me about a guy who, for no known reason, killed dogs and kept them in his freezer.  Sounds pretty bizarre, I know.  The police came to the guy’s door after neighbors complained about hearing dogs howling in the condo complex.  He wouldn’t let the […]

Eric Holder and the Department of Justice

Well, it looks like I’m not the only one who thinks Eric Holder shouldn’t be the Attorney General.  Some months back, I wrote an article, “And Justice for All.” Now, an article in Human Events, gives its own “Top 10 Reasons Eric Holder Should Not Be Attorney General.”


I’m a simple woman.  I don’t like complications.  I don’t always understand all the nuances.  I’m not diplomatic.  Maybe that’s why I write columns under the heading, “I Don’t Get It.” At the eleventh hour before a threatened government shutdown, an agreement was finally reached on the budget but not without a whole lot of […]

Who’s really to blame for the budget crises?

I really don’t get the outrage towards Speaker Boehner and the Republicans over the budget.  We’re talking about the October 1, 2010 – September 30, 2011 budget which should have been passed BEFORE September 30, 2010, when the Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress.  Charlie Rangel said last night on the O’Reilly Factor that they […]


You’re not going to believe this, and I really don’t believe it myself, but I’m going to defend those yo-yos on “Jersey Shore” – well sort of.  Just this week, I read that the “stars” of Jersey Shore are heading to the shores of Italy to start filming their next season.  Well, the Italians are […]
