thespeechatimeforchoosing.wordpress.com “Women I know are outraged that Democrats think that women are nothing more than helpless and hopeless creatures whose only goal in life is to have a government provide for them birth control medication.” I know many women of various ages and I know many Democrats of varying ages, both sexes, and all races.

Sarah Says Sorry

Sarah Says Sorry

I was digesting her idea of an apology to Pope Francis, when I recalled that Sarah Palin is not much of a reader. I remember that from aught eight.

John Boehner – Big Gavel, Small … Heart

John Boehner – Big Gavel, Small … Heart

I wouldn’t trade places with John Boehner for all the money in the world. Speaker Boehner has been, and is still, very, very, very, very bad at his job. From the very first day, when he seized his oversize gavel from previous Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s small, capable hands, he has been trying and failing to […]
