Where’s Pheisty?

Where have I been?  Living.  I’ve been vacationing, helping my husband with repairs around the house, painting, visiting with friends, and of course, working. However, I have to admit that I’ve been very pessimistic about the state of our country lately, so that’s the main reason I haven’t been blogging.  …

Today’s Tent Preachers

My pal and fellow Ban the Ban-ner, Ryan Evans, had a great post on his blog today that I totally relate to.  The title is “Why it’s Hard“, and I feel his pain. It’s pretty easy to feel defeated once you’ve finally opened your eyes enough to see that no …

Why the hate?

A fellow blogger linked to my post about “Earth Hour”, and asked a fair question: What is it about conservation, done voluntarily, that gets some conservatives […] so upset? Let’s get something cleared up right now.  I take no issue whatsoever with people voluntarily doing anything that doesn’t harm anyone else.  That’s part of …

Vomit of the Day: ‘Earth Hour’

Disappointing Legislator of the Week: Senator Sheila Harsdorf

This morning, I woke up and found a Google alert in my inbox, and found that  my last remaining hope in a politician – Sheila Harsdorf – was squashed. State Senator Sheila Harsdorf (R –River Falls) and grassroots supporters of the American Cancer Society will join together in support of a statewide …

My Resignation from the Republican Party

What follows is a letter of resignation from my position (member-at-large), and withdrawal of membership, from my local Republican Party.  I sent it off today.  I’ve just had enough, folks. Ladies and Gentlemen, It is with regret that I inform each of you that I must withdraw my membership from …

The MSJ’s Assault on Private Property Rights Continues…

When something is being forced upon me, I tend to be skeptical of what it is that’s being forced.  Call me crazy. No more than two weeks ago, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published a borderline retarded op-ed about smoking bans.  (See my scathing – and somewhat pissy – review, here.)  Well, they’re …

I’m a Neti Pot Believer

No, I’m not talking about the wacky tabacky (although in my younger days I was a believer in that, too).  I’m talking about the amazing neti pot nasal and sinus cleansing system. As for what follows in this post, I will warn you that I’m going to travel down a road that …

Raped by Global Warming

I can’t remember anything over the course of my lifetime being so forced upon me. Everywhere I go, I’m lambasted by “Green” messages from media and even retailers.  Today I was in Target and was assaulted by “Green” T-Shirts.  I went to Caribou Coffee and got the same crap from …
