and you are surprised why?

I do not normally link to anything on CNN but was too lazy to look this story up on Fox (if, in fact, they are covering it) but for those of you - like me - who are basking in your ignorance of what a woman's virginity counts for.....guess the world will soon know. At least the U. S. will know what one young woman's is worth. If you read the story you will see that a young woman (22) is auctioning off her virginity.

Yes you read that correctly: her VIRGINITY. One of the lines in the story comes from a woman who runs a sex site on the internet that virginity can be "a burden" at some point -- wow, now there's a 'trusted news source' to go to for comment & this story concerns the fact the young woman claims she has a 3.8 million bid, from a guy in Australia but she has not closed the final price yet. She is doing this through a house of prostitution in Nevada (legal in that state) even though she lives in California. She also seems to follow the 60's mantra of 'if it feels good, do it' allowing that prostitution is not a problem with her even though this is certainly equivalent. She wants to be accepted for herself. Whoever that may be. What ever her thinking may be.

Get in line honey. EVERYONE wants to be accepted for themself. You are no different. You are simply paving the way for people to ogle you, devalue you, degrade you, decide that you are simply a waste. If your virginity is/was such a problem, then maybe you should have had sex with one of those exes you've supposedly talked to who support you in this. It's a stretch but so what?

Now we get to the central point for ME though: I was a feminist was back when it meant the equality of every person. Not the bastardized version being sold today that women are better than men or that color of skin has one whit to do with capability - it actually was a time when we women had to put up with male customers ogling us, hitting on us at work with little/no recourse other than to change jobs, a boss that promoted based on a guy being his buddy, less pay for the same job as a guy. We had to work twice as hard to be thought of as half as good at our jobs. And we did. We worked hard, fought hard, made inroads into corporate America.

And along comes this bimbo putting the struggle in jeopardy by her very acknowledgment that she is simply a piece of meat to be bought &  sold. She is selling herself.There is no pimp to blame. There is no crisis to blame. She simply wants money & this is a means to an end. Selling herself -- her very physical being -- will have consequences. After reading, rereading & rerereading the article, I realized it won't be anytime soon that she will understand that, no matter how much money she whores herself out for, it won't be enough to cover the fact she whored herself. She did it to herself. She will have to live with it.

Silly me! With 3 children - here's what I wish for each of them: that they are old enough to understand sex will involve very intense emotions; that the person they experience their 'first time' with will be someone who loves & adores & values the person they are. Ideally, I would like it if they wait until marriage, however, as they are older & more mature, they must make that decision on their own. I want them to be able to talk to me about making the decision & I hope & pray they will each be deeply, committedly in love with the person & believe there is a future for them together. Again, these are their decisions & I will certainly support them & love them & provide answers if they have questions. But, most of all, I want their first time to mean something more than a sales transaction or a drunken one-night stand. I want them to be as treasured for the person each of them is, as I know them to be: special, warm-hearted, caring, funny, fun, loving, kind. 

Some day, if she should ever have a daughter, I wonder if she will advise her to wait until later & then auction off herself as a whore also. What a legacy to pass on.

In a short period of time.....warp?

There are many who would have you believe that because a) Republican governor was elected in New Jersey & Virginia AND b) a Republican Senator was elected to replace Kennedy in Mass. we should all believe things are fundamentally changing in Washington, DC -- that by some miracle of miracles those in 'power' are suddenly going to hear the ground swell that has been since April 15th of 2009.

Not to rain on your parade.....but I sincerely doubt it. Right now, everySenator & Rep who is up for re-election is busy running around saying/doing "all the right things" to convince voters that they have HEARD, that they are LISTENING, that they are RESPONDING.

What these seasoned politicians are responding to/listening to/hearing is their seat being flushed down a drain & now is the time they (much like the POTUS) will say or do ANYTHING to get re-elected. As soon as that happens, they will return to business as usual.

During the 'process' they will try to convince you that what you have seen thus far is not REAL, that what you have seen has many INTERPRETATIONS, that what you the voter already know, is fundamentally WRONG about them. They will sing, dance, repent, pray, bow down at your feet & beg you to give them another chance.

My feeling is this: IF A REP or SENATOR HAS BEEN IN OFFICE LONGER THAN 2 TERMS, THEIR TIME IS UP. It is time to put in new blood. It is time to start over.

ALSO, if, during their last 'run for the roses' they made promises that they have directly/indirectly contradicted, it is time to cut them loose. If you have children, please explain to me how many times you will be happy about them LYING to you? Then apply the same standards -- nothing less -- to your Rep or Senator.

Remember as they promise, promise, promise: we had a lot of hope & change promises in the elections of 2008. We are now in a depression -- funded by tax dollars all the way into this abyss. We are now faced with a POTUS who can stand in front of his teleprompters & blame everyone from the Supreme Court to Bush (geez, that is SO old), to those nasty Republicans to tea party people (tea baggers as he has called us) to everyone except the one most important: HIMSELF.

Why does he bear no responsibility other than those named above not falling into line with his demands? I hold him very accountable. I believe the buck stops here -- at the White House where he has gathered many moneyed people like Soros & the fat-cat union leaders -- yet he bears no claim to responsibility. It is always someone else's fault.

As far as I am concerned, it IS his fault. It is his failure to lead in the war on terrorists, the closing of Gitmo, the enabling of terrorist trials in the U.S. for war criminals, the spending of money, the pork, the special interests.....the list is darn near endless.

So, remember as you receive calls, mail, emails, etc. -- the election will tell the rest of our country not so much about who we elect as who WE are that are doing the electing.

Are you up to the task of separating b.s. political jargon & reality? I hope & pray so. Our country is truly, honestly, completely at stake here.

And so it begins

AGAIN we are about to hear the potus stand up, read from his teleprompters & tell us peons how HE plans to engender job growth through GREEN jobs.

Has he bothered to read the papers regarding what happened in Spain when that country moved to GREEN jobs? For a short period of time, unemployment actually went down. For a short period of time. Then the jobs ended. The unemployment rate went way up AGAIN. And has stayed there. The jobs have been shown to take permanent jobs away from the private sector as well as reducing output. Then you add in the burdensome costs these GREEN JOBS added to every single family. There are major scientific & financial reports available for everyone to read. Simple enough to find on the internet & I am certain these people in the the administration already have them.

Does this mean that none of the potus' advisors can read or that they simply are choosing to ignore the reports? How about our (supposed) representatives in congress? Surely of 435 house of reps plus their staff members & 100 senators plus their staff members -- surely someone can read & comprehend what is imminently comprehensible to us simple peons.

Or am I expecting too much from those 2 branches of government?

Is there any hope any more that any of those in Washington are actually looking out for us?

Here is a link everyone needs to go to:

 The reason will become apparent to you. After all the lies, the pork, the fakery, now those in control (Obama, Reid & Pelosi) have decided the rest of us absolutely do not matter. At all. Tea partys be damned. They plan to bypass the correct procedures & ram through this health care mess that will provide healthcare for no one who truly needs it - FOR OBAMA.

Only YOU can stop it. Only YOU can get involved.

Please's past the time of expecting these people will listen to ordinary Americans.

FCC forges ahead to takeover the internet

If you value your ability to go anywhere on the internet, check out anything on the internet, blog about anything on the 'net then you had better go to the site to the left (under Interesting Places) called


Check it out.
Please do the research.
Read what the FCC is trying to do.

ACT NOW please.

If you choose not to get involved, do not be surprised when the FCC takes over the internet in ways that limit your ability to USE the internet as you please.  

Time off....

Yes, it's true I needed time off from my blogging, however, the reality is that I have been busy flying back to Wisconsin, going thru rounds of tests at the U of Mn Hospital to make sure the melanoma hasn't returned (it hasn't), found that I do have bronchitis - time for antibiotics! Good news from Mark Reding, my Oncologist! Thanks to the staff, the team of docs & the care, AND MOST IMPORTANT, all the prayers, I am still going!!! 

About life...enjoyed seeing all 3 of my kids over Christmas break. Bear came back from college, Fred came home from his study-abroad in Spain, Taylor was able to come up from Dallas & work from home. The older they get, the more precious the time is because there will come a day when 1 or more are not able to be home for Christmas. They have all headed back (2 to college, 1 to job) to their lives. So, for now I am grateful they were here & am blessed to have the family time!

Now, on to politics. Are you keeping up? Me? sometimes yes, sometimes no. Quite frankly, I could not care less about the Tiger Woods story if you paid me. He & his family have to deal with whatever is going on at their home & in their lives -- I do NOT need to know. It it, quite frankly, none of my business! So, why in the world is there so much reporting on it? Another idiotic move on the part of so-called journalists. Enough already!!! The same goes with the Kardashians or any of the 't.v.' celebs -- I DO NOT CARE. Stop trying to create news from gossip & garbage. 

Start reporting on things like the Navy SEALS who are to be court-martialed because they did their job, brought in a much-sought after terrorist & now the terrorist is claiming abuse because he had a split lip? How insane is all this? The terrorists know all they have to do is cry 'abuse' & the tables turn. Is anyone surprised they do this with regularity? How anyone, especially in the military, could take this jerk seriously - put these 3 SEALS  their families through hell - is beyond any comprehension. Is it any wonder that the Armed Forces (all branches) are reporting moral is low? Go to my section on 'Interesting Places' & check out The JagHunter for more info. Be ready to be sickened by what you find though.

About our politicians....isn't it amazing they voted themselves nice raises, exempted themselves from their beloved 'health care reform' AND decided there will be no COLA (cost of living adjustment) for those on Social Security? Is there anyone, anywhere, who believes our politicians are working for the ordinary, everyday American? Every single one of those in politics need to be gone. If you continue to vote for 'your representative' because you think he/she is good, you need to rethink & do the research that will teach you that NO representative is worthy of being office. They all need to be GONE. I hope you have the guts to do what is right when it comes time to vote.

I am reading Going Rogue by Sarah Palin. Revile me if you want, but I admire the woman. She was an ordinary person & that is something (I believe) the press & the good-ol-boy network were not going to stand for...if she came into being politically without owing anything to PACs or groups or certain other politicians, then she had to be ripped & shredded. How dare an ordinary person run for office? Now, as I read her book & have listened to interviews since she was slaughtered by the mainstream media & the 'press', I can understand that they did not accomplish what they set out to do - destroy her. I like her for that. 

It is truly shameful that we as citizens, allow this garbage to happen. TVs should have been turned off mainstream channels with letters written to show WHY & the same with newspapers - they are hurting already, begging for the prez to rescue them, & all should have been canceled with letters to their board telling WHY. There was no fairness in the reporting or the interviewing. The current prez skated into the White House with no more vetting than is done for paper towel brands. He is a fraud, a liar, a cheat, a narcissist & will say or do anything to pretend he knows what he is talking about. Unfortunately, with him & the congress we have now, our debts will NEVER BE PAID OFF.

What scares me most is that my children are supposed to inherit a better world from me. That is not possible. They were bamboozled by the flash & the press & the 'instant' news. Now, unfortunately, they are beginning to see how much trouble their generation is in & are trying to figure out what to do about fixing it. My advice is to THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE. Investigate. Read. Talk to others. Listen to all candidates without prejudice of party. Then make a valid decision. Unless these things are done, don't bother to vote. Those who fell for the 'flash' are now sad that their own future is now a mess. They should have stayed home rather than vote for a pretender. Only now are they seeing that.

Enough wandering for back soon!
