When The Wealthiest Among Us Control The Narrative, Our Children Suffer The Most

Do we really want to live in a country where children die so that the wealthiest among us control the narrative? The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) still hasn’t been reauthorized and the consequences will be as real as it gets for the 9 million children affected. Families who qualify for this program earn too […]

Dear Donald: Grow Up, Will You?

Oh my goddess, Donald, grow up already! If the above tweet isn’t enough to see that you’re completely off your rocker, then I’m sure all any of us needs to do is to head over to your Twitter timeline. Donald, this looks like something a teenager might tweet about another teenager, not something we would expect […]

We Really Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For

Maybe we lost our way long ago. Maybe the ground was already established for the vitriol many of us now experience. Someone on social media that I’ve been friends with for a while became snarky with me when I commented on a news article. The person apologized, but it’s so upsetting when it happens. I […]

In Support Of Safety And Dignity For All

In Support Of Safety And Dignity For All

Full disclosure in case you’re new to the blog: I’m not a supporter of our current president nor do I support his policies. Instead, I’m a supporter of families, women, truth, integrity, shared sacrifice, unity, and progressive thinking. But when he was tragically elected nearly a year ago, besides having a panic attack, I wondered […]

We're Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

We’re Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

So much for humanitarianism. I woke up in time to watch the last half hour of Joy Reid’s show on MSNBC this morning only to hear from Rep. Luis Gutierrez that the situation is worsening in Puerto Rico while the White House believes their response has been a 10 out of 10. Instead of waking […]

He Knew What He Was Getting Into?

He Knew What He Was Getting Into?

Donald, I used to say the following to my boys when they were growing up: every day you have the opportunity to choose who you are, to yourself and to others. And I must say, they both grew up to be honest and compassionate men with integrity that’s endless. I couldn’t imagine losing one of them […]

Witch Notes: October 13th ~ A Day Of Reckoning

Witch Notes: October 13th ~ A Day Of Reckoning

I turn sixty today. I plan to observe it by joining with other women who are boycotting Twitter today protesting the suspension of Rose McGowan and other issues experienced by women on that site. So, I’ll wait to post this after midnight on Twitter in solidarity with the sisterhood. Social media is an interesting place. […]

Witch Notes: Tragedy Requires Compassion Edition

Witch Notes: Tragedy Requires Compassion Edition

After the recent hurricanes and the mass shooting in Las Vegas, it’s hard to imagine that things can get any worse in this country. But then Donald tweets or does a photo op and then reality smacks us all in the face again. He’s unbelievable. He’s allowed to run amok while others behind the scenes […]

All We Needed Was More Paint

All We Needed Was More Paint

Why do I ever leave the house? We needed more paint for the cover over the new well and the pipe from it to the cistern so we headed to the local home improvement stores in the area where we bought the first gallon. My husband is the system operator for our community well and […]

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Donald, who are you praying for today? Are you praying for your soul as you tell somewhere in the neighborhood of 800,000 DACA recipients that they have to go back home when they’re already home? They come out of the shadows after it was finally safe to do so and they have to now deal with […]
