About Me

I've been a female working a "man's job" (mechanical engineer), stay at home Mom (6 kids), working Mom (6 kids to put through college), unemployed, underemployed, temporarily employed and now working from home! We live on an old, small farm with 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house, variable number of chickens out in the yard.

At this point, which do you think would be worse for the country?

Is anyone here old enough to recall the first days of Medicare?

What was that roll out like?

A confession -last night I saw a clip of Sarah Palin egging on the crowd

that went on to threaten the White House while carrying a Confederate flag -


and I used the "B" word.

I've never used it before.

I need help finding a book -

I came across it in a mail order catalog this summer- possibly Daedalus or a University Press.

The book compared the reasons for and nature of emmigration from Ireland and England.

Can anyone offer advice on how to search for this book?

Being such a specialized subject, I'm guessing a university press.

At the risk of exemplifying Godwin's Law -

IIRC, Hitler's early backers were wealthy industrialists. Obviously, they never expected nor wanted him to bring down the country around their ears. I think the money men behind the Tea Party and other right wing bastions are experiencing the same regrets. I'm afraid the Tea Party congressmen are out of anyone's control now.

Is Glenn Beck hard at work in DC today?


Glenn Beck, Mike Lee to ‘clean up’ D.C. memorials

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/10/glenn-beck-mike-lee-memorials-98181.html

I noticed he didn't volunteer to clean up the public rest rooms!

How many people are paying attention to the shut-down and/or debt limit fight?

I haven't heard anyone bring it up in conversation, but then people may be attempting to avoid talking about politics. Has anyone mentioned the situation to you?

About the South Dakota ranchers who lost cattle in last week's blizzard -

just because something has always been done a certain way, is that an excuse to continue?

If a dairyman in New York failed to provide proper shelter for his animals, he'd end up in jail. So why are cattle in the West not provided with any shelter when blizzards occur with some frequency?



I have no problem whatsoever with some kind of government aid/loans to assist ranchers in constructing shelters.

"White House faces an insurrection over metaphors"


he president will not pay ransom for ... " Carney began.

"You see it as a ransom, but it's a metaphor that doesn't serve our purposes ... " NPR correspondent Ari Shapiro shouted back with broad support from other confused reporters.

"You guys are just too literal then, right? Carney said.

"We just want to accurately report," Shapiro began before Carney interjected. "We're trying to be accurate in our description of what's going on."

Why are the Koch Brothers backing away from the Tea Party?

With more money than God, how would the association hurt them? It's not as if they can be voted out of office. Are they setting up a pre-emptive defense for a RICO investigation?
