Double Standard: Democratic Staffer Tweets Sexist and Racist Tweets, Walks Away Unscathed

Rice.jpgAccording to the National Republican Congressional Committee, a campaign staffer employed by Democrat candidate Kathleen Rice tweeted out offensive tweets over the weekend and walked away still holding his job. 

Zach Tierney, Field Director for Kathleen Rice's campaign, tweeted out the following messages: 

#ImInTheFriendZoneBecause I have progressed past public physical abuse of women, but not quite past viewing them as property.

When white tourists watch 4 black people walk by then stop you to ask how to buy a metrocard you’re supposed to tell them it’s $50 right?

What About OUR Kids, America?

Few things can be said about the southern border crisis that hasn't already been said. The story is dominating the 24 news cycle, with talking heads and political 'leaders' feverously offering up their opinions and pointing fingers.

Meanwhile, everyday Americans have to endure watching a true humanitarian crisis unfold that will likely have epic ramifications for years to come. Especially if people with the same mindset as political pundit Kirsten Powers starts to take hold.

Reason Magazine’s Insightful Millennial Survey and What the Right Should Learn From It

Reason_Mag.jpgOn July 10 2014, Reason Magazine published the results of a survey conducted on 2,000 millennial voters and their politics. The study concluded that “ between the ages of 18 and 29 finds 66 percent of millennials believe government is inefficient and wasteful — a substantial increase since 2009, when just 42 percent of millennials said government was inefficient and wasteful… nearly two-thirds of millennials, 63 percent, think government regulators favor special interests, whereas just 18 percent feel regulators act in the public’s interest. Similarly, 58 percent of 18-to-29 year-olds are convinced government agencies abuse their powers, while merely 25 percent trust government agencies to do the right thing.”

Are We Ready To Date Naked?

Naked_Dating_Blog.jpgDating in America may be reaching entirely new lows. I’ve stated in past articles that I’ve tried many different things as a single woman looking for “the one” and how difficult or dangerous it can be. However, tonight on VH-1 a new reality series is premiering that literally makes me shudder. Dating Naked is exactly what it sounds like, a group of people baring it all in an attempt to do away with pre-conceived ideas and inhibitions while “dating”.

At first, I thought this was a joke. I thought there could be no way people would strip down on national television and expose themselves that way.

I was wrong.

I'm Not That Desperate

Married_at_First_Site.jpgAs a single woman and mom, I’ve tried many different things in an attempt to find “the one”. Nothing was off the table. From online dating sites to being “fixed up” by a friend, I’ve tried it all. I understand the risks that come with dating and that first meeting. After all, we never really know what we’re getting until we get to know the other person…right? So why would anyone put themselves in the position of marrying someone they have never met?

A new reality show debuted yesterday (July 15) on the FYI channel (part of the A & E Digital network) called, Married At First Sight. It’s described on the website as a reality show based on a “social experiment”. The premise is simple, a team of four individuals, a sexologist (not sure what that is), a sociologist, a psychologist and a spiritualist, match up couples for compatibility. The couples then meet each other for the first time at the altar where they take their vows. The show then follows the couples for the first several weeks of their marriage and at the end of the series, the couples will choose whether to stay together or separate.
