Back Again, For Now

The site is down.  Bluehost has been remarkably UNhelpful, bouncing me to another site to fix things, which other site bounces me back, saying that they don't have administrative permissions.

To H3ll with that!  I'm on Blogger again.  Email me if you know how to move a Wordpress blog back to Blogger.  I have multiple years of posts that I would hate to lose.

Other, more important things:

  • It seems that all the noise about Carly Fiorina's being excluded had its effect - she will be invited to the next debate.  It does seem fair - she is polling higher than many mainstream candidates.
  • The news about the cops that are being targeted makes me sick.  More Progressive Activist Street Action?  I expect that the posting of these videos and applause by the Leftist alliance will encourage more of the same.
  • Funny how the PP videos are all the talk among those who will not hide their heads in the sand, yet completely unknown among the abortion supporters.  And, please spare me the nonsense about how you aren't For Abortion, just For Choice - no, you're not.  You just haven't the guts to tell the truth.
  • Are the differences between male and female thought processes ONLY attributable to the effect of hormones?  Maybe yes, maybe no.  FWIW, I am a female in STEM, and find that many of these studies don't reflect my experience.  BTW, the women in the study were pre-op trans-people - that MAY have had some effect on the results.
  • I'm back at work, busy complying with all of the B$ paperwork.  No time for more.

Back From Bein' Busy

I've finally returned from weeks of running around the country, and am currently in one place long enough to get caught up on email and stuff, so -

  • Good news - I got an A on my final for my online course.  With an A for the mid-term, I'm feeling fairly confident that I did well.
  • Two of the kids are employed (as is a grandson), and the third is still interviewing.  She's hanging in there, about 2-4 job interviews a week (WAY above the average for her class).  We expect to hear that she's working within a few weeks.
  • We made it through the summer without any major catastrophes, other than READ MORE

Rape Victims - NOT What You'd Expect

Rape is a common crime in wars.  It's not uncommonly used deliberately, particularly in so-called civil wars, to demoralize the civilian population.  For that reason, many international organizations condemn it, and work hard to provide assistance to victims.

Unless that victim Read More:

It's Like Taking Off a Band-Aid

Y'all have to rip it off, quick.
I'm NOT in favor of closing down the government.  However, MORE:


The Debt Ceiling & Immigration

The show-down is likely to come soon.  The crucial question on our minds is:
How will the outcome, whether raising, lowering, or keeping the limit the same affect the country’s work in improving Border Security?

Religion and the Same-Sex Marriage Push

Why is this even a problem?
The NY law put in religious exemptions; that is, presumably, religions will not have to perform same-sex marriages, if their doctrine is opposed to it.
So, despite being able to marry civilly, gays cannot then force the Church of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons) to marry the couple.
Is this sufficient? MORE:

Keep Your D****d Hands Off My Constitution!

Obama is at it again. He references the “inalienable rights” guaranteed under the Constitution, without mentioning an apparently distasteful word – GMORE:


Random 4th of July Thoughts and links

I just love this day!  It’s NOT because I get a day off – as a teacher, I’m already on vacation.  Most of my life, I’ve not been obligated to report to work in the summer (child, student, housewife, teacher).  No, it’s strictly my love for America.
I was hopelessly retro, even in my youth.  While my peers were busy cataloguing the evils of our country, I was loving the sight of the Red, MORE:

Border Crossing - Reality Check

From Tony RogersIf you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years of hard labor. (Unless Al Gore is your friend and boss...)



The Road to 9-11 - Part 1

It’s been almost 10 years since that day, when a substantial part of the American population changed – myself included.
I remember that morning.  I was at work.  I had just started a new job MORE:
