Current News – Alleged Allegations

Current News – Alleged Allegations I saw a brief segment (current news) on CNN last evening and I’m now wondering if the news about Bill Cosby is true.  I had heard a report a week ago about a woman who had made a statement about abuse occurring many years ago, but to have so many women step forward blows my mind.  My understanding is they are stepping forward in support of a woman who has a pending case regarding sexual assault allegations and they intend to offer testimony about their experiences with Mr. Cosby, if asked. Do you believe...

The Opinionated Bitch – Teach Your Children Well

Teach Your Children Well One week ago, within minutes of the verdict in Steubenville, I posted my weekly column.  I gave the Reader’s Digest version of events, spoke about why it happened and then talked about the Rape Culture that has taken this country by storm.  And by Rape Culture, I’m talking about the rape apologists who think the perpetrators of the crime were “children”, their little brains weren’t fully developed, thereby absolving them of the responsibility of their crimes, and those who would heap blame upon the parents of the victim for permitting her out of their sight...

The Opinionated Bitch – A Case of Legitimate Rape

A Case of Legitimate Rape In August of last year, members of the Steubenville, Ohio High School football team raped a heavily intoxicated 16 year-old West Virginia girl.  Those who did not actively participate stood by and did nothing.  No, actually they did worse than nothing.  The bystanders memorialized the event in photographs and video for social media and it was shared across the Internet.  When the men were formally accused, a town rallied around the football team, called them the victims and vilified the girl involved.  A community moved to cover up the crime.  It may have gone...

The Opinionated Bitch – Buckle Up for 2013

Buckle Up for 2013 A week ago, I started to write my expected year-end piece reviewing the highlights of 2012 and thought better of it.  You were there and frankly, no one needs to be reminded of the idiocy of 2012.  I’m still a little pissed about the whole “Mayan Apocalypse” thing fizzling.  There went my retirement plan.  It was disappointing after being screwed out of two perfectly good raptures in 2011, but life’s tough – wear a helmet. The last year here was spent attempting to put social issues in some reasonable perspective and to teach you to...

The Opinionated Bitch – And Yet, No One Is Offended

I’ve often said the hate mail I receive is something to be expected, given that my opinions are unvarnished and I’ve never been shy about throwing punches at those who would oppress another American.  The hate mail comes not from the oppressors, but from the sheep being blindly led to slaughter.  People find my political and religious positions offensive – though I always seem to come down on the side of the poor, the elderly, the downtrodden and those who have no voice.  Many people  find my language offensive – to which I say, life’s tough.  Wear a helmet....
