First and foremost a huge mucho thank you to Ken for inviting me to opine here. I’m not sure he knows what he’s gotten himself into. But why dwell on that? It’s too late for him to change his mind…I have his passwords. I suppose the most logical place to start would be to answer the question “Who is this woman and what’s her point?”. Never having been accused of possessing what most would recognize as logic I choose to start elsewhere.
I’ll start with a warning. I have many, many opinions and feel that it’s my duty to share them with you. If you’re reading this I will operate on the assumption that you’re enthralled by what I’m saying and are thirsting for the wisdom I seek to bestow. Why wouldn’t you? I used to make the statement, “Don’t throw up your liberal bile on me and I won’t attempt to enlighten you with my conservative values.” Unfortunately I found that I could not adhere to that promise so I’ve changed the statement somewhat. It now goes something like this: “Bring on your liberal illusions and through actual facts I’ll show you the error of your thinking.” Nice, huh?
So now you’ve determined that I am a conservative. Brilliant! You can be taught! I am also a Christian, a Constitutionalist and, as of today, a card-carrying member of both the NRA and the Right-Wing Extremists. I am also a stay-home mother of three future conservative voters, ages 16, 11 and 7. Strangely enough I am married to a man who has zero interest in politics but at least he has the good sense to not try and debate with me. He sees things as I do. He has much wisdom.
Geography molds a person’s value system as much as just about anything so I’ll tell you that I was born in Tulsa, OK, lived in Dallas, TX and now reside in Lancaster County, PA. I’m not a great fit here in Amish country but, like any good Okie, I can make anything work. Just give me some Duct tape and I can handle it.
So, love me or hate me, I know you’ll be entertained by me. I’ve never been afraid to say exactly what I’m thinking and I always listen to other people and their ideas. No one has accused me of being politically correct (thank the good Lord for that) so if you’re easily offended, watch out. I’m always Right, usually correct and forever conservative.
