Welcome Christmas Season!

Last night our local FM Soft Rock station switched to full time Christmas music. Yay!

Tuesday I heard a woman at the craft store say "Wow, Christmas really snuck up on me this year." -It was November 17th!

Seriously, I like it.
I too, used to complain about Christmas being commercialized, but now I find it a blessing in a sense. Christmas is being eradicated from the schools, public buildings, and other PC venues. It's true that businesses do it for the revenue, but at least they are honest in admitting that a large part of our society celebrate this event, and they know that they can tug on our heartstrings a little because Christmas is special to us.

We can teach our children what Christmas really means, and even tone down the commercialism with a tradition of giving homemade gifts.  But I would much rather live in a country where Christmas was hyped with a joyful hysteria than a place where there was no mention, no display, and believers had to quietly shuffle home to have their private celebration.

So keep that in mind the next time you see an all out festive commercialized Christmas display!

Mark Levin Interview with Sarah Palin

Here is a link to her recent interview with Mark Levin.

Palin T I have had her T-Shirt since the election.

Her book is on my Christmas list (and it’s going to kill me to wait that long),

And her appearance on Oprah gave the show a huge ratings boost.


Yay for Sarah Palin. There are so few sensible conservatives in politics. And is it significant that most of the conservative leaders are women?

Let me answer that question in this way. My husband thinks most republican leaders become so bad because everyone who goes to Washington ends up corrupted. Not necessarily by vice or illegal activities, but by the popularity, the press and the flattery. I know that happens, but unlike Jon, I believe it is POSSIBLE to go there and stand your ground.

And who can stand their ground better than a stubborn woman?

So here’s to the women who are stubborn in the cause of LIBERTY!


Agree or disagree? What’s your comment on my ‘Stubborn Woman’ theory ?

Learn to Play ‘I Call Obama!’

Follow this link to my sister’s site at Better Than We Deserve to learn how to play “I Call Obama!”

It’s better than Monopoly, more rewarding than UNO.

Have a political smile today.

You won’t regret it!

Missing the Polls

Mail in Ballots 

No, I didn’t forget to go vote.

Now, where I live in Washington State voting is 100% by mail in ballot, and I don’t like it.

Absentee and mail in ballots were at the root of the problem in many close elections of the past. It makes it too easy for votes from certain precincts to be ‘lost’, and you never are quite sure your vote is counted.

Not only do I think we should stick with the polling places, I think absentee ballots should be limited to those who are certified homebound, not just for those who like the convenience of not going to the polls.

And while I’m at it, we SHOULD have to show picture ID and proof of citizenship (not to mention I would be delighted to have to stick my finger in purple ink!).

I think those who oppose those safeguards are those who are secretly hoping to cheat somehow.
