The Tao of Martha

Last month I wrote about my summer reading list.  On the top of my list is the latest from Jen Lancaster, "The Tao of Martha."  I love Jen because she's one of us, but doesn't wear it on her sleeve.  Instead, she writes witty, entertaining bestsellers that all women can enjoy.  In an interview she told me, "But if my goofy little stories just happen to emphasize conservative values like morality, self-determination, and liberty, well… let’s just say that’s not unintentional."

Feminists Ignore Former Model's Story Because of Her Christian Faith

Another aspect of feminists' philosophy is that even in 2013 there is oppression from the patriarch around every corner.  They tell us that the sexy models on the magazine stands, in commercials, TV and movies are hurting young women's self-esteem and body image.  Then why are they ignoring a former Victoria's Secret model's recent story about giving up the modeling business because it made her feel like a "sex worker" and "like a piece of meat"?  Because the model also says she gave up her career because of her faith.

Big Government's War on Women

During the 2012 election we heard about "Julia," the woman who benefited from government programs or more specifically from President Obama being in office.  What we didn't hear (because Republicans failed to make the case) was the harm that big government does to women.  May 14, 2013 11:43 AM PT

I was tired of hipsters before it was cool

A new survey finds that only 16% of Americans have a positive view of hipsters.  Of those surveyed, 10% consider themselves hipsters.  One can only conclude that the remaining 6% are dating hipsters. May 13, 2013 3:17 PM PT

Ann Coulter is (Still) Right About Dating in D.C.

I'm currently reading a galley copy of "Men on Strike" by Dr. Helen Smith (aka InstaWife).  A thought-provoking book that I'll write about more after I'm done reading it.  Basically, it talks about why men are boycotting marriage and fatherhood.  Smith likens it to "Going Galt" in that men are taking their production away from a society that oppresses them.  May 13, 2013 10:40 AM PT

I don't want to live in a world without Sam Axe

If you follow me on Twitter (@LisaDeP) you know that I'm obsessed with USA's "Burn Notice."   More specifically, obsessed with Bruce Campbell (on right), who plays "Sam Axe" on the show.  (There's also a prequel TV movie called "The Fall of Sam Axe," which was pretty good.) May 11, 2013 2:57 PM PT

The Dangers of Government Paternalism

Thanks to big government nannies, it's become commonplace for bureaucrats to pick winners and losers by taxing or regulating businesses out of existence.  They identify the product -- sodium, soda, trans fats, foie gras, tobacco, even food trucks -- they deem not good for you or the community and then develop tax codes or regulations to hurt the industry or attempt to curb people's consumption.  In addition to the issue of government interference in the free market is the government's poor record on these matters.
