Freedom Isn’t Free

May 28, 2012

I watched the flag pass by one day. It fluttered in the breeze. A young Marine saluted it, And then he stood at ease. I looked at him in uniform So young, so tall, so proud, With hair cut square and eyes alert He’d stand out in any crowd. I thought how many men like […]

Need a Lawyer, Don’t Hire Sandra Fluke!

March 7, 2012
Sandra Fluke

I know you have heard of Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law School student who recently testified to members of congress about the subject of birth control. She has been a prominent media fixture this week as a figure of public mockery and an example of the “sexism” of the Republican party. To be clear, I […]

The Occupiers: More than Just a Mental Disease

November 18, 2011
Could the occupy movements be more than a mental disease in our country

My brother in law, who goes to USC, contracted mumps. Which was crazy to me because isn’t mumps a rather obscure disease?  I mean, didn’t it kind of go extinct in the 1950’s?  According to my pediatrician, an outbreak of mumps has occurred in Downtown Los Angeles.  Upon further research, I have found that an […]

Goodbye “Professionally Offended”

November 12, 2011
"Dancing with the Stars" judge Bruno Taglioni

For over twenty years a group of people have ruled our lives.  These people have told us how to act, what to say, and even what to think.  They are a group of people known as “The Professionally Offended”.  The Professionally Offended have had so much power over all of us, all they had to […]

“Dancing With The Stars” Misplaces Its Values

October 30, 2011
Chaz Bono

As you my loyal fans may know, I have really bad taste in television. I love to watch the worst, most brain dead stuff. Now that I’m pregnant, it’s gotten worse. I’m the only person in the world excited to see the new Adam Sandler movie, Jack and Jill. I have not gone so far […]

Steve Jobs – Far from Evil Capitalist

October 8, 2011
steve jobs steve Wozniak

On Wednesday Apple CEO Steve Jobs died.  When I learned of his death, I immediately burst into tears.  For him and his family, of course but also for me:  he has done so much to make our lives better. I am not a person who ever understood computers.  I am horrible with them and am […]

Insanity on the loose in Malibu

September 23, 2011
Friday Night Lights

9-22-2011 The Malibu High School football field needs lights for night games.  There should be no controversy about that:  after all, who wouldn’t want their kids occupied with wholesome school based activities that parents and school officials participate in on Friday nights?  Currently, they only play afternoon games and most parents can’t watch their kids […]

Babysitter Blues

September 4, 2011
Mother Holding Baby

I have to say that I really admire the California legislature.  I really do.  I am in total awe of the imagination it takes them to find ways to get crazier and crazier but they have managed to outdo themselves yet again. There is a bill pending in the senate now dubbed “the babysitter bill”. […]

Celebrity Baby Naming Foolishness

June 4, 2011

I recently had a daughter and one thing that struck me was the profound responsibility of naming her.  I know how deeply a name can affect one’s life:  my family has never been talented in the naming department.  I come from a long line of people with names that constantly have to be explained.  My grandfather’s […]

Qaddaffi and Bin Laden

May 19, 2011
Qaddaffi and Bin Laden

The Democrats are predictably politicizing the killing of Osama Bin Laden.  Even more predictably, they are using it as an opportunity to jump on George W. Bush.  I’m not surprised:  These are people who politicize light bulbs and would blame the former president for Cancer and Rebecca Black’s song “Friday” if they could.  I am […]
