I think we (mamas) are the most underestimated and patronized creatures on the planet. Anyone who has to figure that out the hard way will be sorry a single pinky toe ever crossed us :)

Awesome article. When I try to talk to people about truly free markets, actual capitalism, I get blank stares and dropping jaws. I also get questions like “don’t you think the government should….set prices/determine minimum wage/ break up monopolies….?” etc. etc. My answer: NO. People don’t understand that we do not have a truly free market system, that setting prices and wages increases prices and limits jobs, and that all the monopolies we have are government ones. in a truly free market, IF any monopolies arose (which would mean that all people would have to be buying that product and no one else would be competing for that business in some way – anathema in a free market), they wouldn’t last long because another competitor/start up would want a piece of the action and offer a different/better product. I hope Sen. Rubio really means what he says, and really believes in “true free enterprise.” I’d hate to be disappointed….again.

My man can stick to cammo and Hawaiian shirts. there are a few pics of men on that site where their faces are photographed (the pillow fight pic, and on the FAQ section). However, it’s not the men’s faces that are interesting, it’s the women’s faces. let’s just say, they don’t look amused.

Brandi, nicely done. The PC police have achieved their objective. Have you noticed when someone says something, people say “can you use that word?” Never do they focus on IDEAS, just the words. And that’s what they want, that no one think about the ideas underneath, just that we all use “appropriate” words. The way they have changed the language is just hideous.

Jennifer, they have a whole white privilege awareness campaign in Wisconsin, rooted in the public education system- disgusting. That’s why I pointed out those Korean guys- I’m pretty sure they’re not white. I’ve said it in a different article, but we are going to tolerate ourselves into extinction. You absolutely cannot tolerate people who want to kill you. I’m tired of hearing that we need to understand them and know what we did to cause that…sounds a little like calling blaming the rape victim, if you ask me.

Shannon- awesome! you know, I know a lot of humanists. but, they wouldn’t call themselves that. I honestly think they are thinking new and un-thought thoughts. they ridicules dogma (well, conservative dogmas), but don’t realize they are spouting the progressive/humanist agenda that has been strongly with us in this nation since the 1910s. part of their agenda I believe, especially in classrooms, is making it look like they have no agenda or system at all.

I think the death penalty is a moral imperative for crimes like this. If you deliberately take an innocent persons life, you can no longer be part of society. The death penalty judiciously meted, contrary to popular belief of feelings, is actually a mark of civilization because it does show that we value life, because we won’t tolerate it being taken on a whim or callously. However, I agree with you that Gosnell, being the locus, may put this matter to rest if he is put to death, just because as a society we have a short attention span.
