The Opinionated Bitch – Where The Right Went Wrong

Where The Right Went Wrong The Conservative Spin-Machine is in high gear in the days following the election.  So far, the reasons (excuses) for the Romney/Ryan loss have been attributed to: Chris Christie/Hurricane Sandy – Obama suppressed voters (courtesy of Karl Rove) – Loss of “Traditional America” (meaning White Supremacy, courtesy of Bill O’Reilly) -The Lone Black Panther (courtesy of Fox News) – The ‘Liberal Media’ didn’t do enough stories on Benghazi (also courtesy of Fox News) – Too much fact-checking (Steve Doocy also of Fox News, who seems to believe that facts have a Liberal bias) -Union thugs...

The Opinionated Bitch – Voting in My America

Voting in My America We’re down to the wire.  24 hours from now, I will have cast my vote and will have no choice, but to wait it out like the rest of you.  Over the last year, I’ve spoken at length about the kind of America I see and the challenges we face.  The choice for women, the poor, the unemployed and the underemployed, immigrants, all Americans of color, veterans, homosexuals and in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, those in need – the choice should be a clear one.  In this past year, I have urged you to...

The Opinionated Bitch – On Equal Opportunity vs. Equal Outcome

I know, gone for a week and then post twice in two days.  I warned ‘you people’ when I started this column I’d write whenever the mood struck me.  I’ve been moodstruck. Dateline August 11, 2012: “We look at one another’s success with pride, not resentment, because we know that as more Americans work hard, take risks, succeed, more people will prosper, more communities will benefit. And individual lives will be improved. America, America is just more than a place, though. America is an idea. It’s the only country founded on an idea. Our rights come from nature and...

The Opinionated Bitch – Dear Conservatives, I Got the Memo

It’s been a busy, busy week of messaging from the Right-wing this week and I want them to know, I got the memo: I’m a lazy whore who feels entitled to everything in life and take no personal responsibility for myself.  I get it.  Women can be so disgusting. Vice-Presidential candidate Paul Ryan was a featured speaker at the Values Voters Summit and he talked about “The Makers” and “The Takers”, a subject we’ll delve into shortly.  The very good folks at Think Progress alerted me to another group at the Values Voters Summit who call themselves “Modesty Matters”. ...

The Opinionated Bitch – On Intellectual Dishonesty

The Republican National Convention is over and I for one am exhausted.  You see, I’m considered a polished researcher.  Facts and figures are my stock and trade and I’ve long prided myself in being able to back up the opinions proffered with at least three independent sources.  Public figures and politicians alike have hired me to ghost write speeches and short remarks on their behalf, primarily because I understand the power of words and language and understand the impact they can impose on others and truth is something I prize above all else.  One politician in particular hired me...

The Opinionated Bitch – On Why It’s Not About Rape

My visceral response to Missouri Congressman Todd Akin’s ridiculous commentary on Sunday regarding “legitimate rape” and a woman’s ability to secrete something in her body that would prevent pregnancy, was to mock his stupidity and I did plenty of it.  A good nights sleep and a pot of coffee later, I awoke to the revelation that his views run far deeper than the tin foil hat thinking so common among Conservatives.  This isn’t a discussion about rape at all.  This is a continuation of the attack on women’s reproductive rights.  It’s about abortion. Todd Akin’s quest for power has...
