EQUALS?

“Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.”—Margaret Atwood. Let me preface this that I am not speaking about all men.

LET KIDS BE KIDS

After a chat with my mother-in-law this past weekend, I realize that I need to clear up something that is important to me. I am not trying to take away anyone’s Second Amendment rights.

IS IT TIME TO TALK GUN CONTROL YET?

I must admit to you that I am really tired of having to write about innocent people being killed by deranged people who should never, ever be allowed to own firearms.

My mom is the strongest woman I … Continue reading INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY (belated)

Dear Rafael Edward Cruz, (aka Ted Cruz) As a person who is older than you by eight months, it’s time for you to sit down and listen to your elders! When I woke up this morning, I had no idea what I was going to write about, but then I turned on MSNBC and you … Continue reading DEAR TED CRUZ
