Werd: Pirate - Part Three

Where, precisely, is the line crossed that separates Robin Hood, the hero to the lower class, from Robin Hood, terrorist? As usual, it seems to be a matter of perspective.  If you were sending gilded coins to your dear mother by way of carriage to pay for her The Plague medicine and Robin Hood up and stole your ducats, surely you would see Hood as the terrorist.  Even if the money Hood swiped was going …

I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t love pirates, right? Whether it’s their eye patches or their peg-legs, pirates are a beloved part of human history.  So long as there have been valuable things moved over water and poor people with a taste for the sea, there be pirates trying to steal them some booty. And why not?  Thievery on land is a naturally risky business.  Most centers of wealth, private or otherwise, are located in densely …

Who knew Abortion and Christmas fit together so nicely?

As the holiday season reaches a climactic dud, I thought - “What would be a couple of ideal gifts to give that ‘special’ liberal in your life?”  A sudden wave of cheer and warmth shuddered throughout my body and the first gift can be given to anyone, not just to those pesky elitist friends of yours. No worry about the recession as this gift is free of charge. I know this might seem like a …

It took me a long time to figure this out, but when I did it was quite liberating.  During my dating years I became obsessed with a jerk.  He had none of the qualities I wanted in a man, but I think that’s what attracted me to him.  He was the quintessential “bad boy” and I was intrigued. We dated officially for only about four months, but he stayed in my life for over three …

For the invocation of the Werd, I have made a pirate joke for your enjoyment: What’s the difference between an AIG CEO and a college student downloading a CD? The CEO won’t be criminally prosecuted! Hi-HO!  And now, for something completely different: ...

When my husband and I started dating, Christmas was just around the corner. We decided to exchange gifts and I happily started poking around to get to know him better so I could get him something awesome. When he told me all about this great computer game that he wanted, I went out and picked it up for him. He had also been complaining that he didn’t have a laundry hamper, so I went to …

Now, first things first: I can bake. I’m a wonderful baker. I just get no enjoyment from it at all. Zip. So I rarely ever bake anything, depending on my local grocery store instead. But every year around this time, I get a hankering to bake. I don’t know if it has to do with all the chocolate treats being sold, or the candy cane scent in the air, but I feel the need to …

I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone for coming here and reading our blogs. I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. I wanted to share with everyone, the real story of Thanksgiving. Our schools like to teach us that early settlers came here and like savages, killed every native, raped and pillaged, and spread disease and famine to this land. That’s not the case.  ...

The Bush Legacy

When George W. Bush vacates the White House on January 20, 2009, the floodgates will open, as political pundits line up to take pot shots at his eight years as Chief Executive. Presidential rankings are nothing new. Every former president has one and have eschewed the usual practice of getting an objective view of a president’s legacy after leaving office. These days, the Internet and instant readers’ polls have made the tried and true method …
