Who am I?

  I’m a woman who always expected, and wanted, to have a career, not stay at home with kids. I don’t like cooking. Housekeeping is not my forte. I prefer high heels to sneakers (OK, low heels – stilettos HURT!), and always have. I refused to wear pants until third grade and sweatpants until sometime […]

Your Political Intolerance Creates Hate

I didn’t like Obama as President. I didn’t like his policies. I didn’t like the way he conducted himself overseas. I didn’t like the way he was soooo quick to blame race for things before even looking at facts, like the events leading to Beergate. I didn’t like his choices for a lot of offices […]

Nearly a Year

It’s been nearly a year since I posted something on this site. I’ve been focused on our parenting website, WiseFathers.com, but I am inspired to start writing about politics again. Many other parenting sites discuss politics and the owners say it’s part and parcel of parenting because political decisions affect our kids. I completely agree […]

The Danger of Attacking a Candidate’s Supporters

In American Presidential elections, there are two candidates (realistically) in the final race. This election is no different. Politics is a dirty, brutal business, which is why very few good people are willing to enter the fray and even fewer manage to stay the course. Attacking the candidates, their beliefs, their life history, their relations […]

Fainting Hillary: What You May Have Missed

In this video by Zdenek Gazda, there are small details that make it hard to deny that Hillary has a serious, on-going medical condition. It is alarming that Hillary isn’t holding up her own weight even in the first frames, but what is even more alarming than the fact that she isn’t taken to the hospital […]

End the zero tolerance policies.

End the zero tolerance policies. There are very few things were a zero-tolerance policy really makes sense. When the PC-police prevent us from discussing any cultural, ethnic, or racial differences in even the most casual, passing way, they make it worse. It’s obvious to even the littlest kid that different people look different. Observing differences […]

Hillary’s Declining Health

This should be an issue – a big issue – because Hillary Clinton certainly seems to have one or more health issues that are serious enough to impact her ability to do the job of President of the United States. This image was taken a mere four years ago during her time as Secretary of State. She is […]

I’m Back!

My last post on here on The Moderate Mom was just a bit over a year ago. Not long after that, we found out my husband’s job was being eliminated. You can imagine the stress that created! I stopped blogging during that time and focused on my home and family. We are fine because we immediately […]

Why I’m Glad Gay Marriage is Legal

We can finally quit talking about it. Seriously. It’s done. It was already legal in 36 states, so please, let’s just move on. (Not to diminish the celebrations of those who have been waiting for this day. If that’s you – party on!) To be clear, I have always thought the only restrictions on marriage should […]

Hattie McDaniels Oscar

Read this article for more complete details, but the simple reality is that racism was so deeply ingrained in American life, and in every aspect of Hollywood, that the first black winner of an Oscar wasn’t even able to attend the premiere of her own movie. When you see people complaining about racism as though nothing has improved […]
