    As I was putting my coat away to go into work, I had decided, “Today is going to be a great day.” Because of my scheduled day, work would be a short 3 hour shift, and I had come in early to finish work I had forgot to complete the day before. I walked to [...]

    Buffy was not a role model of mine. Now Xena, there was a woman I believed in! Perhaps a bit violent for some, but with her seedy past, reinvention as a vigilante, what wasn’t there to love! I think we aren’t looking hard enough for role models. We might be suffering from the, “back in [...]

  • *Warning* This might be too personal for real “political” blogging My dearest Auntie J and I have not seen eye to eye on political, religious, or even lifestyle issues for years now. As a child, I spent a goodly amount of time at her home, playing games and hanging out with my cousins. I was [...]

  • Jade wrote a new blog post: Cain’s health plan – think happy thoughts   3 years ago · View

    I think of all of the GOP hopefuls, Herman Cain is probably one of the few who are making sense to me. In this recent article from liberal media website motherjones.com , Mencimer discusses what she thinks of Cain’s health care plan. She denounces the idea as standard GOP folly. Up to a point, I agree. However, [...]

    Well, whites also make up a small portion of the California prison system too. But it would be racist to just sent white people home with their kids over other minorities because we perceive whites to be more readily rehabilitated or better parents.

    I seem to remember reading how women who “misbehave” outside of their perceived gender roles were actually more likely to serve longer or harsher sentences. For example, because women are not perceived as being violent, if a woman commits a violent crime, they are more likely to receive the harshest sentence possible. Women who are [...]

    A fascinating move by the judicial system in California. Mothers who have been convicted of non serious and non sexual offenses, serve the rest of their sentences at home. In a bold move by the judicial system to drastically reduce over crowding in prisons female inmates are being reunited with their families and ordered to serve [...]

  • Jade commented on the blog post Appeals court upholds South Dakota “existing relationship” abortion law   3 years, 1 month ago · View

    I have recently moved to South Dakota, with the understanding it is a battle ground state with regard to comprehensive sex education and reproductive rights. When I read this article, I was hoping for more information on how I can volunteer and get involved in the fight, on the ground, here in South Dakota. Help?

    Is anyone watching CSPAN right now? Rep John Lewis from the 5th district (Atlanta, Georgia) is asking who is next. I don’t understand. First, the Republican party argues it is immoral to teach comprehensive sex education which would lower pregnancy rates. Then, Republican limit access to health care by cutting funding for programs like Planned Parenthood, and limiting access to the right to abortion. Finally, they cut WIC, a program to help women who have had children. It is immoral to have sex or abortions. Isn’t it also immoral to let children go hungry?

    Bachmann will “be so much more substantive,” Rollins said. “People are going to say, ‘I gotta make a choice and go with the intelligent woman who’s every bit as attractive.’” I find it stunningly incredible how the conservative base is pitting top female political candidates in a beauty contest.
