Elsewhere on the Internet…

Ok, this time I have an excuse for being so late with a wrap-up post – Someone died. Honestly, I haven’t even thought about rounding up my posts from elsewhere on the internet because I’ve been walking around in a daze since last Thursday. So please forgive me, blogging buddies, for being just a leetle bit behind schedule.

Last Week at The Stir:

The fact that Media Matters for America is a nonprofit organization is infuriating enough, but their CEO David Brock is a joke. He needs to go.

Obama’s reelection campaign manager Jim Messina sent out a fundraising email full of lies about the Koch brothers. They fired back.

Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith was attacked again. What is with all the bigotry?

Last Week at Moms Matter 2012:

I don’t care how much money a presidential candidate has. I’m more concerned about how they live their lives and the decisions they make.

Elsewhere on the Internet…

Only one day late! I’m off to a great start bringing back these round-up posts, huh? Sometimes I impress myself with my timeliness. That’s my plan to live forever, actually … just be perpetually late for death.

I think it’s a great plan. I’ll let you know how it goes. In about 500 years.

Here’s the stuff I wrote on teh internets that wasn’t here:

This Week at The Stir

Was Clint Eastwood’s Halftime in America Super Bowl about politics? I say yes. You’re shocked, I know.

Get yer tinfoil hats ready, I’m talking about drones coming to the private sector.

This Week at Moms Matter

Which candidate do I support over Obama? The Republican.

It is past time for the Department of Education to go.

 

Happy Reading!

Back by Popular Request: Elsewhere On the Internet…

I stopped doing weekly round-up posts a couple of months ago because I was sporadic at best, and honestly, I didn’t think the interest was there. But I’ve gotten tons of requests for them recently, so I decided to resurrect them. The majority of my weekly articles are usually published by Thursday, so I’m marking Thursday on my Google calendar as Elsewhere On the Internet Day.

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

This Week at The Stir:

I wrote about author Charles Murray and his ‘elitist bubble’ concept published in his new book, Coming Apart, The State of White America, 1960-2012. I scored a 37. I think that number, like my age and my weight, is just a number.

Apparently food stamps are going to fix the economy. They’re going to fix it so well that the government is giving out $75,000 grants to groups that devise ways to sign more people up for food stamps.

This one on Susan G. Komen defunding Planned Parenthood got such a hateful reaction that Mark Davis’s producer Susan contacted me to be on the show tomorrow morning to talk about it. Some people are just mean. If you’d like to listen in, I’ll be on at 7:04 Pacific, which means I’ll be locked in the garage or something while poor Leif wrangles the kids to get ready for school. I love you, Honey!

The Latest on Moms Matter:

This State of the Union Analysis is technically from last week, but seeing as CafeMom hasn’t posted this week’s article yet, I thought I’d include it anyway. Hey, it’s my site, I can post what I want to! :-)  (Even emoticons!)

What Happened on Glee:

Glee was new this week, which means I shut everyone out of my bedroom at 8pm on Tuesday to watch high school musical drama, write about it, and call it ‘work.’ My job kinda rocks. I ended up talking more about my marriage than the show though.

 

Happy reading!

Elsewhere on the Internet

Hey guys! What’s up? Has it been long enough since I’ve done a wrap-up post? Could it be any longer?

Sorry. I’ve been watching Friends on Nick-at-Nite recently, and Chandler Bing’s quirky personality seems to have rubbed off on me. And yes, I just said Friends is on Nick-at-Nite. Could I feel any older?

Dang. Did it again.

Anyway, I wrote some stuff for other sites recently, and you should read it. Or at least click on it, because honestly, the web traffic monitors won’t know if you don’t read it. But really, you should read. It’s good stuff! And then you should send links to your friends and family. Because the best advertising is word of mouth, and if all eight of my readers sent my links to two people each, and then those people sent them to two people each, and so on and so forth, I’d be crowned Queen of the Internet by 2013.

Nevermind. That sounds dirty. Moving on.

Stuff to click read:

PETA sued SeaWorld because they’re enslaving Shamu. Seriously. I can’t make this crap up.

Did Men’s Wearhouse support the Occupy kids, or was it just a ploy to avoid vandalism? Hmmm…

Should homosexual imagery be played during G-rated TV shows? By the way, my editors choose the pictures that go along with my articles – not me. Just wanted to make that clear.

Gloria Allred gives me a headache. Can Herman Cain recover from her venom?

Mississippi voted down the personhood amendment. Not like that matters; it wouldn’t have stopped abortion in the least.

And I have a few Glee updates on Big Hollywood:

‘Glee’ Recap 11/1/2011: Baby Mama Drama, Poking Fun at Bachmann’s Campaign Style

Last Night on Glee, 11/09/11: Gay Teen Sex — Let the Controversy Begin!

Last Night on ‘Glee’ 11/15/2011: ‘Angry White People’ Edition

I wrote some schtuff recently. You should go read it, because I love my readers and my editors enjoy the web traffic. See? Everyone is happy! Well, except for my liberal friends that don’t like to be reminded of my conservative leanings. So you guys are excused from reading. Except that you really should read, because it will help you to see another perspective.

Perspective is good, people.

I went to Las Vegas last week with a $51 Spirit Airlines ticket. After purchasing said ticket, I found out about the $35 fee for overhead bin usage. Each way. Needless to say, I packed everything into a bag that fit under the seat in front of me. Viva la capitalism!

President Obama is fear mongering again, trying to get his latest stimulus jobs bill passed. You know, because it worked so well in 2009.

In the latest edition of Crap My Veep Says, Joe Biden says he wishes Republicans knew what rape and murder felt like. Yup, he actually said that.

President Obama continues to push the jobs bill, even as we’re finding out that the 2009 stimulus gave money to electric car company Fisker … who sent jobs to Finland.

Guess what happens when the government takes over health care? Rationing!

And last but not least, Muslim students at the Catholic University of America are peeved that there are crosses on the walls of classrooms where they are allowed to perform their prayers toward Mecca.

Happy clicking reading!

Elsewhere On the Internet (and an Early Morning Story)

It’s 5:15 a.m. and I’m awake. I’ve been waking up at 4 recently, unable to go back to bed after my third bathroom trip of the night (thank you, childbirth) because by that time I’m no longer exhausted enough to drown out my darling husband’s snores with sleepiness.

Side note: Isn’t snoring the worst sound in the world? Ok, maybe the third worst, following nails on a chalkboard and cats in a blender. Not that I’ve ever heard cats in a blender. But I can imagine, and it’s not pretty.

Sometimes I can jam earplugs in and throw a pillow over my head and find a couple more hours of elusive rest. But I’ve had this cold recently, and the stuffy nose and the cough and poor tender head make me ache while I wait for the meds to kick in, and by the time they do … I’m pretty much awake.

By the time the clock hit five, I knew I was done, so I threw the covers off and headed down the hall to write this very post. The light was on. Huh. Strange. Stranger still was the sound of the TV. Ok, no longer strange.

Here’s what I found:

This little goober didn’t go to sleep until nearly eleven last night, even though she was put to bed before nine. It was the same old But I Need game, which (I’m pretty sure) children have played since the dawn of time. You know the one.

But I need a drink!

But I need to go potty!

But I need my night light!

But I need socks that don’t bother my feet!

But I need a hug!

But I need a different song on the ipod!

But I need to be tucked back in!

You get the idea. Anyway, my little non-sleeper was out in the living room watching TV. Which she is not allowed to do on school days. Apparently, she thought that rule only applied to afternoons and evenings, so she forced herself awake after six precious hours of sleep to enjoy some tunes.

New rule: No getting up until 6:30.

Except for Leif. If he wants to get up pre-crack of dawn and leave me to sleep in peace … I’d be ok with that. Love you, Honey!

So I wrote some stuff last week that I’d love for you to read. Click, read, comment, share – especially share. Word-of-mouth is where it’s at, baby. Plus, I really can’t afford fancy advertising. It’s ‘spensive.

The Occupy Wall Street goons are still on display. President Barack Obama feels their pain and understands their frustration. Iran thinks they’re swell. Iran also stones rape victims for ‘sexual immorality.’ As a general rule, I like not to agree with Iran on pretty much everything.

Obama called Mitt Romney a flip-flopping flip-flopper, which is completely true, of course. However, there’s this saying that come to mind about glass houses and throwing stones…

Priorities in Topeka are messed up, y’all. Social welfare programs and inflated benefits and pensions are not more important than legally protecting victims of domestic abuse.

I can barely believe it myself, but here is a Roundup post! I know, right? It hasn’t even been a whole month yet. I am hoping to make these weekly things, so that by the time I link you guys to something, it’s not horrendously out of date. For instance, it’s hardly news now that Texas Governor Rick Perry has entered the presidential race. But two months ago, it was big news!

Anyway.

I wrote some stuff last week that you should read. Then go tell your friends! Word of mouth is the best advertising, y’all.

Writing about Sharia is always fun. I get the best most interesting comments. Usually along the lines of me being a hater or Islamaphobe or something. I roll my eyes. Of course I’m a hater of any doctrine that instructs people to kill a rape victim for sexual impurity. In this particular case though, I give props to a young lady’s family for defying convention and not murdering their daughter.

Attorney General Eric Holder is either a liar or he’s incompetent. The end.

I wrote about the importance of strong missile defense in America. Here’s the bottom line: It’s mega important.

Some have likened the Occupy Wall Street squatters to the Tea Party. Hahahahahahaha! ~deep breath~ Hahahahahahahaha! Yeah, not so much.

The latest round of Obamacare mandates are guaranteed to raise the cost of health care. Who cares if the care is crappy as long as everyone gets has to wait six months for it?

And there’s the Week 3 Recap for Glee. The show wasn’t that bad (politically speaking) last week.

Happy reading!

I wrote some stuff that I didn’t write here.  You should take a gander, or at least click on the links, because let’s face it, I have no way of knowing what you’re doing over there on your side of the computer. And that might be a good thing.

Anyway.

President Obama unveils his plan to create jobs. It goes something like this: “Because I said so!” Yeah, that’ll work.

AttackWatch.com is born. Republicans die laughing.

The Solydra Scam continues to unravel…

Is anyone else getting sick of hearing the phrase ‘fair share’? You know who should pay their fair share? The 47% of Americans that don’t pay federal taxes.

The food police almost ruined my daughter’s birthday dinner. Thankfully, Daddy shared extra fries with the birthday girl.

Have you picked a GOP candidate to back yet? I haven’t. But I’ve narrowed it down.

I went to a training session on citizen journalism when I was in Florida. I learned some stuff. I shared it with you.

Over on Big Hollywood, I started writing a weekly Glee report. Because I will take any opportunity to do something fun and call it ‘work.’ The first and second installments are up for your reading pleasure.

Happy clicking reading!

So. It’s been a little while since I’ve done one of these. Not sure if you could tell or not, but it’s been sort of a long summer three or so years. But good news! I’m getting my mojo back. Both kids are in school right now. I’m training for a half marathon. I get paychecks now (good for both the ego and the budget).

I’ve done dishes TWO nights this week.

Anyway. I wrote some stuff over the past week (or two … three?) that I’d love for you to click on. Maybe you could even read them! That would be awesome. Hopefully you’ll learn something, even if it’s just a different perspective.

A certain state is using taxpayer money to pay for babysitters for underprivileged kids. Except they’re not running background checks, so many of those sitters are rapists, child-molesters, drug dealers, etc. Which state it is? I’ll give you a clue: It starts with Ill and ends with nois.

In other skeezy news, ex-gangsta Cornell Jones took over $300,000 dollars of federal taxpayer dollars to build a strip club. How about we end some of this disgusting spending instead of raising revenue taxes?

Back in Illinois, it’s apparently illegal to record on-duty police officers. Where are we? Soviet Russia?

James Hoffa (not the one buried under a football field) of the Teamsters (not technically part of the mafia) opened up for President Obama at a pro-union rally on Labor Day. He told the president that the union workers were his army, and they were ready to take the Tea Party son of bitches out. The White House had no comment.

The lights went out in San Diego (and parts of Arizona and Mexico), which made me ponder what life would be like if we lost electricity suddenly and unexpectantly. As it turns out, EMPs are a real potential threat, and we’re going to need strong missile defense to combat them.

And finally, union thugs in Washington State went bananas on the port of Longview, destroying property and holding guards hostage. They were back at work the next day.

Happy reading!

PS- Thanks for putting up with me as I’ve been trying to navigate my new normal. Y’all are the best.

So it’s been two weeks since I’ve done a roundup for y’all. What can I say? This summer his kicked my hiney. Between the heat and the kids and the chores and Leif’s crazy work schedule … sometimes not everything gets done. Like the laundry. But that’s another story for another day.

So go click my links (my editors like web traffic, yo!) and maybe even give my articles a glance. You might even learn something! I know I did writing them.

Just after Governor Rick Perry announced his run for the presidency, I wrote about his jobs record in Texas. Spoiler alert: It’s better than Obama’s.

I wrote about the truth behind those ‘budget cuts’ we keep hearing about. They aren’t cuts at all. They’re an increase in spending. Only in Washington … sigh.

I never thought about this problem before, but how do women get bras in Saudi Arabia? They’re not allowed to work, and men aren’t allowed to fit them. My breasts salute America!

We need Social Security reform. The Ponzi scheme is going to collapse, and soon.

In Idaho, a man is being prosecuted for killing a grizzly bear that was on his property. The bear was approaching his family, which includes six children, aged 10 months to 14 years. Bottom line: People > Bears.

Environmentalists are now going after our clean clothes. Leave my fabric softener alone!
