    Sheriff Todd Pate, DUI’s and Breckinridge County

    It’s no secret that I have disdain for Sheriff Todd Pate. He violated my rights on two separate occasions, abusing his authority. The second time he and his deputy assaulted me, and kidnapped my children. The effects of his actions left lasting scars on my family, my children. For that alone I feel he should have been removed from office. I admit, part of me wants him to suffer. His actions towards my family are not the only concerns we the community have with Sheriff Todd Pate.  There are many complaints about Pate and his office not upholding their responsibilities. I have personally witnessed the sheriffs department refusal to address…

    Trayvon Martin

    In February 2012 a national story caught the attention of most everyone and divided us as a nation. Trayvon Martin, a young black teenager was shot and killed. Many people were outraged that an innconent black teen was murdered, others claimed the teen was a threat and was killed in self defense. I was the latter. I defended George Zimmerman. From my perspective he was in the right. I supported Florida’s stand your ground law and still do. However I was wrong. I believe Trayvon Martin was murdered. I am a firm believer that I would rather a guilty man go free than an innocent man go to jail. And…

    How Was Your Experience?

    Earlier today I saw Radcliff Police Department sitting outside my salon. Due to past traumatic experiences I have anxiety when I see Law Enforcement approach so I was watching closely. I was curious, yet thankful, as they went to the businesses around me but not mine. I later found out what they were doing. It seems Jeffery Cross RPD police chief wants local businesses to let him know how RPD is doing. My daughter said, “Seems they only give them to people who would give them a positive feedback” RPD isn’t short on emails and verbal reports of my opinions of them as an organization. I have met a few…

    Super Controversy

    I don’t watch Super-bowls and I don’t have any interest in half time shows but I have a strong opinion on dress code hypocrisy. 2004 Super Bowl is infamous for the wardrobe malfunction heard around the world. The world went berzerk over a female nipple exposed on live TV. I’m a fairly modest person and I am not bothered by seeing a woman’s breast, especially not by accident. I support a woman’s right to breastfeed uncovered. I support equality in dress codes. Last night Adam Levine, who I had no idea existed, went topless during the half time show. I only know of this because of an article I read…

    Pro Choice and Pro Life

    I have always been opposed to abortion. I’ve also been mostly opposed to abortion laws. I don’t think someone else has the right to decide delicate reproductive choices for others. However, I do feel that we need more education and compassion when dealing with such matters. A few days ago NY state passed a law that granted a woman permission to end the life of her unborn child at any stage of pregnancy, if the life of the child or mother was in danger. I tried to avoid the newsfeeds, because it’s an upsetting topic and most conversations are useless, but it was still on my mind. I did make…

    Another Brick In the Wall

    I use to be a statist. I remember cheering for big government to push for more laws to make us safer after 9/11. Since then I have come to understand that the government is the biggest threat to our freedoms. I use to be a supporter for strong borders. I don’t anymore,  I’m the polar opposite. I support open borders. I see various arguments for a border wall. I disagree with most of them. Conservatives will say “well why don’t you just invite them into your home then” proving they have no understanding of private property rights vs public property. We have a lot of issues with conservatives not understanding property…

    I’m Offended That You’re Offended

    As a highly opinionated and outspoken person I am aware of the risks of offending people. It doesn’t really matter what you say or how you say it, if you challenge someone’s beliefs, they are likely to be offended. I have been an outspoken blogger for well over a decade. So the range of people I have offended is probably larger than most. And for the most part I’ve kept my opinions pretty tame, because I am aware people are easily offended.  I think the important thing to note is that a mature person will say “that comment or photo is offensive but I can move past that”. Can you…

    Axolotl Science 🧪

    I’ve always been interested in animal science. In high school I took several science classes including a  marine biology class. Keeping aquarium pets requires knowledge of biology, chemistry and ecology. I always hated the chemistry part. Our aquarium has always been fairly easy to maintain but now that I have Axolotls they are a little more work keeping a balanced ecosystem. I had been doing well, doing a water test every 3-5 days or so. Well last week I noticed my Axolotls were acting off. Thing 1 is usually a bit shy but Thing 2 was sluggish and hiding. I offered worms and they weren’t interested. I did a water test…

    Facebook Nazi

    I’ve fussed about Facebook and their ridiculous community standards for years. I’ve reported things that are clear violations of standards and in some cases probably violated law, only to be told it didn’t violate. And I’ve seen Facebook take down posts that clearly didn’t violate. A while back I had a post taken down that said it violated FB terms. I have no idea what that post was. It didn’t show what it was on any device. I’ve never been in FB time out for attacking another individual. But Facebook has allowed that to happen to me. I wish FB would explain how and why a post was removed. The…
