Does Paul Ryan have a point?

Yes, I am breaking my blog hiatus a few weeks before the big election so I can walk through this with you guys.  Obviously between the conventions to now, there has been quite a bit of drama and unraveling on both sides of the aisle. 'A bit' is an understatement, ...

Day 4 evening session

Scenes from the DNC

Well history was made. We finally have our first female nominee for the president of the United States. Take a second, first of all, to think about what a milestone that is, no matter what the political landscape. 240 years and here we are. It was quite a sight in ...

The 'Amor' sculpture was constructed for the Pope's visit last fall to take the famous "love" sign international.

DNC Chaos Day 3

Well it was more of the same on day 3. Bernie supporters were still out and about claiming that they would never support Hillary, and the DNC committee was trying their hardest to steer the ship back in her direction. Not entirely sure that they succeeded, but the vibe was ...

Celebration as Clinton is declared the nominee.

DNC Chaos Day 2

What can I say about day 2? I have racked my brain about how I even begin to explain what the day unfolded. Personally, my phone started blowing up before I even walked out of my hotel room. That in itself is a dead giveaway that the day would be ...

Day 1 evening session: Bernie Sanders

DNC Chaos Day 1

Day 1 in the books for the Democratic National Convention. For the record, since I have had people “correct” me, it is indeed the DEMOCRATIC not Democrat. Look it up. Anyways, the crowd at this place already blows the crowd at the RNC out of the water. The arena was ...

Celebration in the arena after Trump accepts the nomination

RNC Madness Wrap UP

So here we are. The end has come. The craziness settles for 72 hours and then we do it all over again. Day 4 was nothing short of insane. For me, I had several celebrity sightings, including the Duck Commander himself, Phil Robertson. We did an interview with David Muir, ...

RNC Madness Day 3

I know you are waiting with bated breath with what I have to say about Day 3. It was a crazy day full of interviews and running around. I got to have lunch with Brian Kilmeade (Fox and Friends), and actually enjoy watching the speeches somewhere other than the arena. ...

RNC Madness Day 2

Day two I woke up to news all about… Melania. My phone was blowing up with news about the speech even before my feet hit the floor. If you are interested in this angle of a story at all, here is the side by side, if you haven’t heard it ...

RNC Madness Day 1

The first thing I saw when I stepped out of the car was a police perimeter and a group of protestors. Bullhorns and bicycles were the scene as I walked towards the Arena. Thus, my first Republican National Convention begun. This blog will be a little different the next two ...

Politics for Days

Well, here we go. I hope you are sitting down, and have had a large cup of coffee, or whatever gets your going in the morning, because we have a lot to cover. This week is a little bit more commentary than normal because it is all about politics, but ...

#prayforOrlando

Like most, I struggle with how to talk about what happened on Sunday. How do you say more than just “I’m sorry for your loss,” when even that doesn’t seem to cut it? I always find it interesting how people express emotion on social media. I like to sit back ...

Going ape over a gorilla

The story of Harambe seems to be all that anyone is talking about this week, so therefore we also must talk about it. So to catch up, a 4 year old boy found his way into the gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. The boy was then found by Harambe ...

Ode to the mighty Facebook

Oh, our beloved Facebook. I hate to even think that our digital queen (Google obviously king)  is doing anything controversial, but alas, here we are.  (Please hear the sarcasm.) As a member of the Facebook generation, I am not surprised that this has happened, and the fact that only those ...

Caitlin back to Bruce?

"After all that?" I felt the same way too when I read it. I actually thought it was fake, but alas, multiple sources have this bombshell in the headline from a source that is close to the family.  Apparently, Bruce/Caitlin discovered that he/she still likes women and "regrets" transitioning to ...

Opinion are like toilets...

Okay friends. It is time to talk about the elephant in the (bath)room. This story has been all over social from Target’s new policy to memes to North Carolina and the feds suing each other to people just ranting on their own. Warning you ahead of time that this blog ...

Baby, calm down

Can we talk about how boring the trending news was yesterday? I think it included Kaley Cuoco’s hair extensions, and the fact that a Jenner got to go to the Washington Correspondence Dinner. Snooze fest. Anyways, today is a little better: Some UK employers are giving time off to new ...

The one about another Super Tuesday

5 primaries down in one night. Shew! We are getting closer and closer to whatever kind of historical name you want to put on the 2016 campaign season. However, fun things always come out of the primaries no matter what the outcomes. For starters, we have Governor Chris Christie’s wife ...

Beyoncé/Facebook

Fresh honey from the Bey hive

Apparently a yellow fruit mixed with sugar exploded over the weekend. I kid you not, my mind is blown with 4 stories related to Beyoncé’s new drop that I just can’t fathom people caring about, but seriously this thing is like an ice cream sundae with all the fixings. So ...
