Just another opinion, another idea to think about…


February 2012

Ann Romney says she was, “just kidding”.

Ann Romney made the news this evening, and it seems the trials and tribulations of being a candidate’s wife are getting under her skin. This writer has news for her though. She ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!

It’s understandable to be a bit blown away at the constant barrage of questions, requests for just one more picture, or one last autograph. Afterall, it’s not everyday one reaches the pinnacle of success the Romney’s obviously have reached.

I am sure it must get overwhelming having to deal with photographers, reporters, overdressed and over-heated politicians and other small-town dignitaries, all just trying to make you feel welcome and part of the family.

According to The National Review’s Katrina Trinko, Ann Romney is so upset at the media’s coverage of her husband that she made several comments, which she said were in jest.

Speaking openly about how it was “getting harder and harder to be cheerful,” she laughingly says, “I am so mad at the press [that] I could just strangle them! And, you know, I think I’ve decided there are going to be some people invited on the bus and some people just aren’t going to be invited on the bus.”

This writer will leave it to you, the reader to decide what to make of all this.


The Virginia General Assembly and personal choice

It’s been a hectic few weeks here in Richmond, but after a lot of bickering back and forth across the isles, the legislature was able to get one, that’s right, one ultrasound bill through to a final vote that passed the senate today.

It’s such a shame that this particular bill got as far as it did. I myself am neither for, nor am I against abortions. Where I do draw a line is when some old fool in our government tells me or another woman that we have to do this or that to our body.

I have very strong feelings about the federal governments’ role in our private lives, and there is nothing more private, to me anyway, than having an abortion. It’s not something you would discuss with your congressman, that’s for sure.

So, by the same way of thinking, when did it first happen that some busybody, with nothing else to do, obviously, decided that her neighbor had no right to have an abortion, just because she herself didn’t like it?

If that wasn’t bad enough, this busybody takes her complaint to the Supreme Court, and they take sides with her. Well, you can see it gets worse and worse by degrees. It amounts to this, there are some things that no one has a right to interfere in, and what a woman does to procreate, or not, is her business.
