By now almost everyone has heard about the horrible shooting massacre that occurred at the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, Colorado, on July 20, 2012. This story is so horrible on so many levels. I was surprised to learn that the theater where this tragedy took place was only about 15 miles away from where the Columbine shooting took place a number of years ago. I can’t imagine the horror that replaced the excitement of being among the first to see the much anticipated installment of the Batman movie series. However, one statement struck me in the head like a hammer. continue reading more

This time it’s Kansas House Speaker Mike O’Neal. Mere words cannot describe how disturbing this is! If he was joking, it is not funny. If he was serious….urghh. This is the house speaker yall. What kind of example is he setting for the people of his state? I hope he has been put under 24-hour surveillance and is given a thorough pat down from now on when he comes anywhere near President Obama. And to wish the innocent Obama children (who are NOT his political rivals) fatherless? He sounds like a terribly loose cannon to be a political official. In the words of one poster, this is frightening nuttery.
In the words of another poster, he should be recalled immediately for

Good Afternoon everyone. This picture right here speaks 2 million words. Arizonians you need to take your governor in the corner room and give her a stern talking to about how she’s representing you in front of the world. You don’t stick your finger in the President’s face. Wait a minute, it goes far beyond that. Even if he wasn’t the President, you don’t go sticking your finger in someone’s face.
As adults we have learned, or should have learned by now, that we speak and communicate our points of view with our mouths and NOT our hands. She knows good and well if he had been seen wagging his finger in her face, Gloria Allred (allegedly) and every feminist women’s group in the country would have been up in arms. Well that goes both ways lady! Put your hands in your pockets if you can’t control yourself. Thank you.

I am beyond appalled by an article I read this morning. You can read the sordid details of the article here . Even though there was no profanity used, the level of insult is exceedingly high and disturbing.
What disturbs me about the situation is that Congress member (I can’t even bring myself to call him a CongressMAN right now) Jim Sensenbrenner is setting a dangerous and insulting precedent in the already volatile world of politics. continue reading more
By now we’ve all heard about the demise of the marriage of Chris Humphries and Kim Kardashian. But what is a little surprising to me is that some media outlets are implying that the whole thing might have been a scam. Many are saying that Kim orchestrated the whole thing in order to have a huge wedding celebration as a ploy to continue garnering hefty ratings for her family’s reality show. She has been accused of using her wedding to attract sponsors to pay for every flower, napkin and decoration in return for their names being featured on the wedding show. They say she got married for any reason you can think of, with the exception of true love. Well I believe there’s a possibility that Kim may be getting a bad rap. continue reading more
