I work at a national helpline. A woman called yesteday to ask how to give some news to her finace. She was afraid to tell him. Over the half hour I spoke with her, I found out that she had been with this "douche" (thank you, Mel) since she was 16. Now they're engaged and will be married in 6 weeks. I asked her why she was afraid, and she hesitantly told me he had a bad temper. I asked her if he'd ever hit her. She was silent for a moment and then said, "Only twice." What?! He had clearly brai...Read Full Post »

It's been a while since I talked about this issue, so I felt it prudent to refresh your awareness by re-posting a previous blog.

The US isn't that great either when it comes to the Native Americans. I've just started watching another documentary. I'm only 10 minutes into it and I'm just sick and disgusted. If you don't know, Residentail schools (in regard to Native Americans) are schools that NA kids who were stolen/taken from there families were forced to attend. They lived...

I am sick to death of what this society has done to us as women. Watch the video at the link.

If you think about it, no other surgical/medical procedure can legally be performed on a minor without parental consent. Hmmm...

I'll tell you why I believe life starts at conception (that doesn't mean I may learn something later that changes my mind). First, there are the Bible references to God knowing us before we were even a thought in someone's head. Here are just two of them:

I could say that I couldn't have said it better myself, but we all know that's not exactly true (love you, Tom).
"Obama is President ? Now What?

I voted today, but I'm not happy about it. Actually, it was fine voting for some of the local issues, but our choices for President are woefully lacking. I know, I've talked about this before. I actually talked to one of my pastors a few days ago because I still didn't know who I should vote for. He said that obviously I'd have to pray about it, prioritize the issues and their stances on those issues, and vote for the candidate that I felt God was leading m...Read Full Post »

Well, anyone who's ever spoken to someone of the opposite sex knows that this is the case. I'm not here to try to explain why (people have been trying to figure that out for eons), but one of my friends recently shared his theory regarding how we think differently. While he was sharing this with me, I was thinking about the various people I know of both sexes, and what ...Read Full Post »

I'm pretty cynical, at least about our government. Well, really it's about the people in our government. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being all-out, perfect trust and a belief in an unerring government, I'm about a 3. I can't say that I'm a 0; if I did, then I should move out of the country. If I say it's 0, but I stay here, then I better shut-up about the government or ...Read Full Post »

I have some shocking news for some of you: sexual activity, even with protection will ALWAYS mean that pregnancy and STD's are possible. You can't "accidentally" have sex or "accidentally" get pregnant. You know what you're doing can cause pregnancy; therefore, it's not an accident. If I decide to sky dive, I know there's a chance my parachute won't open and I could die. SO, I don't sky-dive. Am I missing o...Read Full Post »

Or rather our need for it does. Why can't the days of Star Trek be hear now? No one would need money, I wouldn't be freaking out about paying my bills, no one would care about the price of gas, etc. That sounds heavenly. Unfortunately, I'm here and in this time, so I do have to deal with it. When is the government going to wise up? I'll tell you when: when they benefit financially from helping US citizens. This may sound cy...Read Full Post »

My friends convinced me to go see the Proclaimers in Pittsburgh. We had so much fun, which I'll have to write about later (too much happened). Anyway, on the way back, they were schooling me on the lyrics, and I found a song who's words I've needed more times than I think is fair. I thought I'd share:

I don't know how many of you already know this, but the founder of PP, Margaret Sanger, made it very clear on many occassions that she started PP to get rid of minorities and the poor. Even if you try to give her the benefit of the doubt when reading her clearly, unambiguously racist quotes, more than 75% of PP's are in poor, minority neighborhoods. Well, they've shown their stripes once again.
