Why Guys Can’t Ignore Valentine’s Day

No matter how silly and ultimately meaningless this “hallmark holiday” is, every girl hopes that someone will acknowledge her on Valentine’s Day.  When I was a single girl, I dreaded Valentine’s Day (and most holidays for that matter). But like most single girls, I still hoped and prayed that some secret admirer would send me flowers, candy, or some cute stuffed bear wearing a red tee shirt with some cheesy phrase like “be mine” on …

Global Cooling

Why do people believe politicians when they talk about things other than politics? Why are the only scientists that say the earth is warming, the only ones getting government grants? I wish people would realize that this “Global Warming” is nothing more than a scam to collect more taxes. ...

In these times of economic crisis, people everywhere are looking for ways to cutback.  This week, Netflix reported their highest sales growth in years.  Could it be that those ridiculously high movie tickets are just too much of an expense these days?  Last week Husband and I spent $30 on a trip to the theatre.  Now while it’s not something we ultimately want to cut from our budget, signing up for a DVD rental program …

For an Easy Hair Update, Go Old-School!

Things I love about winter: boots, coats, hats, Christmas lights, steak (somehow, red meat tastes even better in cold weather), sidewalk cafes with heaters, and tamales. Definitely tamales. Things I despise about winter: drafty houses (mine). MY HAIR! Winter wreaks havoc on my otherwise moderately well-behaved hair. It’s the static. Mixed metaphors aside, my hair is a friggin’ lint trap for static. I can’t straighten it, I can’t wear it wavy. My only recourse, which I’ve …

People Have Been Fooled By Radical Obama

Categories: Editorials,

This is for the people who swear Barack Obama is for change, and “non-partisan” politics. In a past blog, I wrote about a letter President Obama submitted to the left wing site, The Daily Kos. In that letter, he calls out to fellow liberals to basically flush out any moderate Democrats, and take the “fight” to the Republicans. Where is the change? Where is this “end of childish” politics he’s talking about? I haven’t seen …

You Cannot Multiply Wealth By Dividing It

How great does this quote by the late Baptist pastor, Adrian Rogers, relate to what our government is trying to do? I wish people weren’t so uninformed. You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of …

Getting Drunk on a First Date

Sometimes, having a drink on a date is a great way to calm your nerves. Having three, four, or even five can lead to disaster. The reason I bring this up is I recently had a conversation with a friend about one of her most recent disaster dates. While she is not a big drinker, she finds herself a little too tipsy when she’s out with a new guy. She truly is a “drunk dater”. …

After two years of analysis, the government decided that their plan to “inject” money to the economy did nothing to help it’s condition. It didn’t help. ...

Feelings Over Facts

This is for all of you “give Obama a chance” people. “He won, it’s time to support your president,” is what I keep hearing from his(President Barack Obama) drones…uh…I mean, supporters. It seems like they don’t realize he has his chance. He won, didn’t he? I’m starting to get frustrated when I use real facts, and historical evidence to prove points when debating an Obama-maniac. The talking points I get from one of these people …
