This Bible Verse is on My Mind
Few know of my religious background or my beliefs. Mainly this is because I’m a fairly private person and I’m respectful of the religious beliefs of others.

What Will It Take?

We used to watch out for one another

Subjugating Our Women is Long Past Due
We knew as soon as we gave women the right to vote, things were going to go downhill. Now they are taking our jobs, leaving our children with strangers in daycare, and think they can tell us what to do. Alabama, Georgia and Missouri are getting it right. They are helping our cause in letting… Continue reading Subjugating Our Women is Long Past Due
