Should Oprah Run for President?

Last night, after a rousing speech at the Golden Globes, everyone was like should Oprah run for president? Last night the answer was an enthusiastic YES! with fists pumped high in the air. Hell, last night, after that speech, I would have voted for her. In fact it reminded me of a speech given at the DNC years ago from a first year sentator.... It

Why I Deleted My #MeToo Status Update

Unless you're living under a rock, you've seen the hastag #MeToo all over social media. Legend has it Alyssa Milano started the trend on Twitter (though it appears she got the idea from a friend of a friend on Facebook so it would seem someone else who isn't a celebrity actually started the trend...). The idea was that if all women/(people) respond to her tweet

What I Learned on My Facebook Vacation

Recently I took a little break from social media, and this is what I learned on my Facebook Vacation. I needed a break from social media, but mostly I needed to get off of Facebook. Facebook is where I do most of my socializing.  Don't judge, you probably do too, or maybe you're fond of Pinterest, or you hang out with the folks on Instagram.

Live Blogging Inauguration Day

Today I'm going to be live blogging Inauguration Day. Today we will witness the peaceful transfer of power, a pretty amazing thing that you don't see in many western democracies. Knowing how divisive this election has been and how many rallies are planned, I suspect there might be a few blips, but I don't expect anything horrible to happen. In fact, in just watching a

It’s the End of the World as We Know It

If you're like a good chunk of the US population, and probably a large percentage of the rest of the world, you probably think that come Friday, it's the end of the world as we know it. Or maybe it will be the end of the world? Who knows, maybe shortly after Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States,

Thanks Trump

Thanks Trump, you've turned my me time into a hellhole of arguments, frustration and irritation. I used to look forward to spending time socializing with my virtual friends on Facebook each night while I unwind with a glass of wine and the dog curled up by my side. As the days get shorter that time on Facebook was even more important. But you've ruined it

Not Everyone is a Racist

It's been one week since Donald Trump was elected as our next President of the United States. It's still pretty unbelievable. Even more unbelievable is that not everyone is a racist. I know, it's hard to believe, especially if you venture out into social media, but that's the truth. Not even half the population, the half that voted for Trump, is a racist. Ugh, I
