I hope everyone had a terrific weekend. Mine was spent at the East Texas Book Fest where I connected with some of my author friends, met some new ones, and chatted with visitors about how much fun it is to read. There is a real passion on both sides of the book, and I find […]

In keeping with my theme of celebrating strong women, I want to acknowledge the birthday of Althea Gibson. An American tennis player and professional golfer, she was born in South Carolina on August 25, 1927 and was the first black athlete of either gender to cross the color line of international tennis. In 1956 she […]

Rick Perry recently vetoed two bipartisan ethics bills and rescinded state funding for the prosecutors unit that is investigating his cancer research fund.  In an article in The Dallas Morning News written by Christy Hoppe and Robert T Garrett […]

Friday Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 28, 2012 |

Texas Gov. Rick Perry either had a recent meltdown, or he truly believes that the doctrine of the separation of church and state is a myth devised by Satan to drive Christians from public life. He also said, “American families are under siege and that Christian Warriors must defend the nation against secular attack.” Separation […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Rick Perry dropped his campaign for the Republican nomination for president. I couldn’t help but wonder at the timing of the announcement. It was just before the debate yesterday. Had he forgotten to prepare? And what did you think of Newt’s rant against the press? In last night’s debate, CNN moderator John King directed the […]

Heaven help us, we have twelve more months of campaigning that brings out such wonderful points for voters to consider such as this from the recent GOP debate: Rick Santorum: Mitt, you’re a lying hypocrite and I’m the only one here who cars about family. Herman Cain: Nine apples, nine oranges, nine lives, whatever. Mitt […]

In Texas, the Sons of Confederate Veterans want to have a license plate commemorating their part in the Civil War; a request that has raised all kinds of responses, most of them negative, and some downright strident. I will admit that I was agreeing with most of the negative, and even some of the strident […]

I never thought I would find myself defending Rick Perry, but I have to agree with a recent column by Steve Chapman who said Perry’s mandate that all teen girls in Texas get the HPV vaccine was the right call. Michelle Bachmann, and others, have taken Perry to task saying that making the vaccine mandatory […]
