Pros and cons of Our President, Donald Trump – My Thoughts

Pros and cons of Our President, Donald Trump – My Thoughts

Today I am using one of my own blog writing prompts for my post. I know that political discussions, especially those about our current President, Donald Trump, can be quite upsetting to many. The one thing I like about that is that it at least means people are thinking about politics and how our elected officials impact us not only as a country and community, but also as individuals. As … Continue Reading →
How to Prepare for Voting

How to Prepare for Voting

First off, this is not a political post in the sense that I tell you what my opinions are about different candidates. This post is just to give you tips and ideas to help you prepare to vote in the upcoming election. I know that there are issues with the electoral college and such with voting for presidents, but the upcoming election has a lot of local things, in most … Continue Reading →

Voting Information Resources and Logistics of Voting Infographic

The first Tuesday in November is a major election day across the United States. Growing up I remember going to the polls with my dad and it instilled in me that voting was an important duty and right of citizens. When my son was younger I then took him to the polls with me for the same reason. When I talk about voting though I often hear people saying they … Continue Reading →
I Voted

I Voted

Yes, I voted today. I actually took a photo of my ballot – just the small area for president and – and then after I was back home I shared it over social media. Imagine my surprise when a gazillion people on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram informed me there were laws against sharing a photo of your ballot. Who knew? Well, they knew. Apparently most people knew, except me. You … Continue Reading →

Why Herman Cain Is Like a Mom Blogger

Why Herman Cain Is Like a Mom Blogger

Let me preface this by saying I am not a Republican – I am (as my regular readers know) a pretty liberal minded person. However, paying attention to all the people vying for the presidency I feel is important to all citizens. Also, this comparison has nothing to do with the types of accusations made against him as a womanizer. This afternoon I watched the press event where Herman Cain … Continue Reading →
Happy Women’s Equality Day!

Happy Women’s Equality Day!

I am happy to see this day. It really was not all that long ago that women did not have equality in this country. In certain situations we still need to keep moving, but we have gone miles and miles from whence we started. Women’s Equality Day is the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which is the amendment that prohibits any US citizen to be denied the right to vote … Continue Reading →
Weiner Twitter Scandal

Weiner Twitter Scandal

So the other day when the Weiner Twitter scandal started making news I saw that first picture and thought big whoop-de-doo. I still feel that way about that picture (it’s the only one I’ve seen). However, my opinion is changing the more I learn, maybe…. The problem is that more and more seems to be coming out and then today they are saying his wife is pregnant too. This bugs … Continue Reading →
President Obama’s Back To School Speech This Tuesday

President Obama’s Back To School Speech This Tuesday

The other night we got another automated call from our school district. They do a lot of these, when I was a kid we just got flyers sent home, but I guess this is easier and gets more folks attention. Anyway, it was about the annual Back To School speech that President Obama is going to give this Tuesday which will be broadcast out to all the schools around the … Continue Reading →
