Another Reply to Another Article About Women Making the Wrong Choices

Last week Jezebel ran an article titled, "Quitting Your Job to Be a Full-Time Mom is Probably a Bad Idea."  Even though I'm single and not a mother I've been writing responses to articles like this for over 14 years.  Time and time again feminists/women on the Left tell women that they have choices, but they get angry when women don't choose their idea of a fulfilling life.  Aug 11, 2013 10:44 AM PT

10 Secrets to Seduce a Politician? Et tu, Jane Pratt?

When I was in middle school and high school I adored Sassy magazine.  It was (ok, slightly) less vapid than Seventeen and other teen magazines.  It's founding editor, Jane Pratt, was a hero to a girl like me who wanted to be a writer one day.  In addition to the usual dating and fashion spreads, there were career advice columns and features on real issues.  Instead of the "101 Tips to Drive Him Wild," one cover story was "Make Colleges Want You Bad."  I was too young to know if they had a political bent (I'm sure they did given Pratt's politics).  Either way, I didn't care.  I loved it and wanted to write for a magazine one day.  After Sassy went under (after becoming more like Seventeen, incidentally), Pratt started a new magazine called Jane.  If I recall it was billed as Sassy's older, cooler sister.  I immediately got a subscription to that one, too.  There were the standard "How to Make Him Notice You" articles, but it always struck me as more substantive than magazines like Cosmo or Glamour.  Eventually, Jane went under, too.  Aug 6, 2013 4:09 PM PT

This Health News Brought to You By Citizens for Sugar

When it comes to picking winners and losers in the food industry, I prefer the whims of the free market.  Give people information, let them decide how healthy or unhealthy they want to be.  Who am I to say a marathon runner can't indulge in a 1,000-calorie sodium-laden burger?  Or that a right-winger like myself can't buy organic when it suits her mood and wallet?

Killing Jobs Not a Byproduct of Obama Economy, It's the Plan

The President is hell-bent on injecting Leftist politics and the Chicago way into practically every government agency.  We already know how the administration used the IRS to intimidate political enemies.  His latest picks for the National Labor Relations Board is no different.  Even though the Board exists to represent the interests of employees and protect their rights in disputes with businesses and unions, President Obama keeps appointing those who have worked on behalf of unions for years.  These picks hardly represent the Board's pledge to be "fair and impartial."  From Red State: Jul 24, 2013 12:42 PM PT
