Women!

It wasn’t until 1920 (the year of my 92-year-old mother’s birth) that we even had the right to vote. Certainly this is no time for us to squander that hard-won power. Did you see Gloria Steinem’s recent email (October 2, 2012), laying it out flat why women not only have to support Obama, but why we also have to vote? […]

Recognition

Alyssa Hart Recently I heard about a woman who was struggling within a relationship that had become violent.  Concerned about the situation, well-meaning friends urged her to take her two young children and get out of the house.  I don’t know any of the people involved in this situation but the frustration they expressed is commonly heard:  “Why doesn’t she […]

They have exposed the horror, degradation, murder and rape that religion often fosters, the abuse heaped on children in the name of sanctity, and the extremists for their dangerous ignorance and denial of science.

The Devolution from Hunter Gatherers to Consumer Culture: We No Longer Live Life, We Consume It

As a hunter gatherer, we retained the behavior of building the safe base (i.e. the home) and continued the hunting strategy only we now project this impulse on a different platform. We are now the workaholic, grocery store shopper desperately trying to fulfill our needs.

I Am the 47

Dear Governor Romney: With less than seven weeks until American voters determine the fate of the free world—no, the whole world—in the presidential election, I wanted to ask you how you’re doing.
