Fast Lane/LP Convention 2016!!!

So, we meet again and dust off the building blocks of my blog.    I, a recently more involved Libertarian before, and you, a random person whom I need to entertain.   😉 Life has been a whirlwind these past few years.   I moved into a new home, my husband lost his job, I … Continue reading

Why More Gun Control Won’t Fix Anything

  I was unsurprisingly unsurprised today when I opened up my favorite news app and greeted by the headline, “Obama says fight for gun laws ‘Ought to obsess us’.”   I’m a huge fan of background checks and streamlining the way signs of mental illness or criminal activity flag individuals as being unfit to purchase guns.   … Continue reading

Zimmerman v. The State of Florida : Justice Served?

In a case filled with idiotic decisions, tragic outcomes, and a defense lawyer who opens with what he perceives to be stand up comedy,  the final verdict was a surprise to me. At first glance, it seems to be a no-brainer.   Nearly everyone in the country knows the major facts in the case (and I … Continue reading

Get Realistic : My Opinions on the Paula Deen and NSA Scandals

After a too-long hiatus from writing on my oft neglected blog, I finally had to take to the keyboard after being barraged with news for the past week. Paula Deen :  (Wo)Man or Monster? I love the way the media is throwing this debacle up at every turn now that the Food Network and Smithfield … Continue reading

IRS, surveillance, and bears, oh my.

I can barely stand to read or watch the news, more than usual.    I’m sure everyone on the planet is more than aware of the recent “scandals” involving certain acts by the IRS and the NSA.   I’m pretty sure even my neighbor’s dog knows about it by now. As usual, I am unsurprised.   When GWB … Continue reading

Book-to-Television Review : Hemlock Grove

I was debating another book review, or perhaps another fitness-related post, but after watching this made-for-Netflix series at the behest of my better half, this seemed the better choice.    Besides, who doesn’t enjoy writing about a fantasy/sci fi/horror show filled with nudity and excessive gore? My husband introduced this to me as a possible show … Continue reading

Book Review : Furies of Calderon

I’ve done quite a bit of ranting and thoughtful dissertation in the past few weeks, according to my better half.    So to keep things light, I thought I would do a couple book reviews of things I have been reading in my spare time. Up first is Furies of Calderon, the first book in the … Continue reading

Life, Liberty, and Freedom

With every atrocity, there is a predictable rhythm of contraction and expansion. When the crisis begins, we hold our collective breath as a nation.   There is a great waiting until the suspect (or suspects) is caught, with an explosion of social media and news outpouring information and a sense of national solidarity.    We come together … Continue reading

It’s happening to all of us.

We let elementary schools give our children 20-minute silent lunches and 15-minute recesses, and reward them for not speaking for nearly half of their day. We take them to doctors and psychiatrists beginning at age 3 or 4 for “ADHD”, giving them medication that alters their brains to treat them for one of the most … Continue reading
