There is so much OUTRAGE over the Casey Anthony not guilty verdict. People are furious that the jury acquitted her. One restaurant owner in Florida has gone as far as banning members of the jury from his restaurant. I wrote a blog about this because there seems to be a huge misunderstanding about the U.S. trial system and the way it is designed to work. It's not about justice for the victim - it's about protecting the rights of the accused and I'm glad.It's well thought out and carefully…See More

It's a topic that might make us feel a little uncomfortable but it's so necessary to talk with our kids about.

If you're like me, you might not be up on all the popular rap singers that your kids listen to or talk about with their friends. When I was surfing my son's Facebook page, I came across a picture of Lil Wayne as a little boy. It inspired me to write a blog post about him then and now. How did he go from a cute, happy, innocent little boy, to a convicted convict messed up in drugs?It's a story that isn't uncommon and is what teens face everyday. It's important to be on top of this kind of…See More

"It's sad that his parents didn't know any better. I imagine that it would be hard on a parent to find out that your child is gay, but acceptance is key and I admire the parents who don't pass judgement."

Dangerous Drug alternatives - Spice, K-2, Relaxation Brownies

The new craze is getting high off of bath salt, marijuana substitutes, and now brownies laced with melatonin. These products are sold in convenience stores and the like and are easily accessible to kids and teens because there's no age limit on buying them. We moms need to talk to our kids about these things.Http://www.imouragednow.comSee More

Do effiminate boys grow up to be gay?

AAn interesting experiment called the Sissy Boy Experiment took place in the 70s to show that unwanted homosexuality can be "cured" The story is a sad one about Kirk Murphy, his family and his eventual suicide. Moms should read my blog entry because the effects of rejection from parents can be devastating to a child. http://www.imoutragednow.com See More

College Grads Asking: Is It's Worth It?

Posted on March 2, 2011 at 2:57pm 0 Comments

I went to visit the College of Charleston last weekend with my daughter and met a nice kid who recently moved to the area from the Northeast.  A job opportunity brought him there which led us to a conversation on colleges. He's a recent graduate from James Madison University and is $50,000 in debt.  His story is like a lot of kids' and they are questioning whether going to college is really worth it? According to the Project on Student Debt, the average debt carried by college grads…

MIke Huckabee, "I Don't Want Obama to Fail"

Posted on February 22, 2011 at 8:29am 0 Comments

Could this be the first Republican politician that has said publicly that he doesn't want Obama to fail? In an interview yesterday on Good Morning America, George Stephanopoulos gave Mike Huckabee a chance to promote his new book, A Simple Government,  and to reveal his intentions on running for president in the 2012 election. In the interview, Huckabee stated that he thinks Obama will be tough to beat. After all, in modern times, every president except Carter  and Bush Sr. has…

Great Illustration on Balancing the Federal Budget

Posted on February 17, 2011 at 5:09pm 0 Comments

Yesterday I posted on my blog (http://www.imoutragednow.com) about a great illustration on balancing the federal budget given by Johnathon Karl with ABC news. If anyone is interested, go to ABS News and look for Balancing the Budget: Where Does the Money Go?

He demontrated using a bunch of pennies on a table to show that what Democrats and Republicans are squabbling over is a nominal amount of money relative to the whole budget. Unless we're…
