Cotillion Tuesday

Hello, hello. I think I might be back. There's so much to say right now, but this isn't about me; it's about Darlene. This spectacular woman is hosting Cotillion this week and deserves a visit from my whopping 3 readers now. Actually it's not that bad, but close. Stop by and say hello, she has an excellent round up.

We Appreciate Our Veterans

I am pleased once again to host this week's sampling of the finest right-of-center female bloggers in the 'sphere. As we approach Veteran's Day we would like to salute those who have sacrificed in order for us to live in this fine nation. From the minute to the grand, every detail of our daily lives are possible because of these fine men and women.

Kathy at Right Wing Sparkle is in good company these days. (uh, uhm, uhm) She also is frustrated by the mindset of the left in regards to black America.

The Democrats had good intentions in the 60's. They did not forsee the vicious cycle of poverty that would become generational because of welfare. They did not see that handing out checks to unwed mothers would discourage marriage and make the man unecessary. But that is what happened and that is the root cause of the problems in the inner city.

Bobo Blogger reminds us of how not to be; just joking honey. Actually it's a glimpse back in time and what reminds us of those moments. Every scar has a story and those moments combined make up our life stories.

Girl On The Right posts a tribute to her husband's grandfather who recently passed away. Knowing one's past is the gateway to one's own future. How lovely to have known the past so well.

Many of you heard of the recent decision by the 9th Circuit denying parents their rights on how to instruct their own children, young children, first grade children; on sex.And Rightly So tells us what she thinks.

Talking to children in first grade is way out of line. They do not have the ability to even remotely understand this stuff. You know what I think? This is bad…I think these judges are fucking perverts who want little kids to be in the know about these sexual things…these judges want the kids to be taken advantage of. They have a thing for the most innocent of our citizens. Why can’t they just go jack off or masturbate in a corner and let the kids be…kids. Fuckers. And since it is the parents who pay for public education, via taxes, they DO have a right to overide what is being taught.


Tammy at A Mom And Her Blog has posted about the case of Carlie Brucia; she was the Florida girl whose abduction was caught on video tape.

Living here in the Sarasota area, I’ve been trying to keep up on what’s going on in the trial of Joseph P. Smith, the man accused of abducting, raping and then killing 11-year old Carlie Brucia. I’d imagine that because it’s been like a year and a half, alot of people have forgotten this case…unless you live around here.

I've had a difficult time getting to Tammy's page, hopefully all of you can. We need to remember this girl and witness the outcome of the trial.

Charmaine at Reasoned Audacity breaks down the numbers for us regarding the upcoming vote on Judge Alito. Will it be a filibuster? A constitutional option? Charmaine's round up on the 'Gang Of Fourteen' and the possibilities is a must read if you're a SCOTUS watcher.

Jane's (the gusty one) latest piece regarding changes with Centcom in Yemen is a must read. Her fortitude, I know for myself, is always appreciated.

So the Yemeni regime is potentially withdrawing from the command center but not the alliance. Otay. The regime has recently issued repeated statements in support of Iran (and its nuclear program) and Syria. And bi-lateral ties with Iran have increased markedly in the last months. Trade relations with North Korea are good. Salah is the one Arab leader who sided with Saddam in Gulf One resulting in billions in economic losses for the Yemeni economy.

Darleen shares her writing skills with us. Blogging should not be your main focus, dear. That was moving.

Maxed Out Mama is on a mission; a mission to raise funds for wounded vets. Go check out her article and hopefully you'll be moved to donate to this fund.

Sisu has a great take on the riots in France.

It assumes that by providing the basic subsistence to people, that would be enough to keep them content. People are never content with bare subsistence -- especially if it comes in the form of hand out and charity. It degrades them and robs them of their self-esteem. It is a shameful existence. Men need pride from their own labor. Self-reliance brings personal honor and pride -- a sense of ownership over one's own life. This is why the free-market economy is not only an efficient and effective system -- it is also a humane and honorable one.

Beth is also chiming in on Project Valour It. This is a good cause and I hope it moves many of you to contribute to this fund.

Please enjoy the posts by these fine women and remember Friday, November 11th, Veteran's Day. On behalf of all of us at The Cotillion, thank you, thank you ever so much.

Tuesday Stew

Item 1

IT'S COTILLION DAY!!!!!!!!! Portia Rediscovered is our lovely hostess today; stop by and say hello.

Item 2

Computer problems. UGH!!!!!!!!!!! Direcway stinks, you all know it, I've told you before. So my computer was sort of, kind of acting like it had a browser hijacker again; but no . . . it was Direcway. Like many companies Direcway has outsourced their tech support to India. Each and every time I've called (except for the one time when I had a real live American man) these Indian men have been VERY rude towards me. I came to the conclusion yesterday that it's their societal structure. Women are subhuman in their world and how dare an American woman voice herself. How dare a woman speak in that tone to a man. How dare a woman use something as complicated as a computer . . .GASP!!! I'm going to look into Wild Blue and see where there tech support resides. Not only is their English difficult to understand, but the attitude, THE ATTITUDE!

Item 3

DON'T FORGET TO VOTE!! Well, here in Colorado we are voting today. It is suppose to be the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, but not this time. I guess they like keeping us on our toes.

I'll check in with everyone later.

Cotillion Tuesday (And Some Other Stuff)

Debra has taken on the entire task of hosting herself this week. Make sure you stop by and read her round-up.

Some of the other girls decided we needed a King for our Cotillion; after all, what kind of fun is it to just dance with other girls? Go place your vote over at Beth's place.

(Oh, geezzzz; I hope they don't chose this guy. He's just scary.)

Other stuff:

I have some newbies on my Blogroll that I would like to point out.

Camp Katrina is a mil blog highlighting their activities in New Orleans.

And A Blog From The South. She's a God gal that does a lot of soul searching.

Give them both a try.

A Nasty Virus

My computer has picked up one of those horrible browser hijackers. I can't accomplish anything in IE, the browser that works best with my ISP, but am able to do a few things here in Netscape. I have someone coming out tomorrow to see what they can do. From what I've heard so far, they often have to erase your entire hard drive, I'm not happy.

But it is Cotillion day and there are a few ladies you should visit. So far I only know that Carol is hosting. I haven't been reading all of my Cotillion mail lately. My bad. I'll come back later and update this, or you could just pop on over to the Cotillion hub site and check for yourself. Anyway, I'm hoping to post later on today. Thanks.

Too Pooped To Party

Well, we've all been staying up too late chit-chatting. This weeks dance has been cancelled, so, sorry; no dance cards this time around. But a few things for you:

About a month or so ago, Carol (from An American Housewife) shut down her blog, took a deep breathe and decided she wanted to approach her blogging differently. To all those who were fans of hers she has a new locale. You can find her at The Gray Tie. It's been nice having her back and she has returned to her no-bs blogging.

I am considering quitting the blog thing myself. Because of the growth of my blog, I have been ignoring more important matters. I receive a decent amount of hits for a little ol' page like mine and have gotten caught up in the numbers. I don't like that. I will most likely take this weekend off again and access where I'm going with my blog. I miss my old life and not having to deal with the idiocy of trolls would be nice.

And something important for everyone to know, even those with blogs on the left:

If you ever quit your blog, DO NOT LET GO OF YOUR URL! Web addresses that receive good traffic, and have been abandoned by their owners are often snatched up and used by others trying to jump ahead in line. I use to frequent a blog by a student in Texas; she recently started college and left behind her conservative blog. The URL was picked up by someone promoting gay porn and I know that she is most likely upset by this. I still have control of my Blogger address and I on occasion post something in order to keep that address active. As I said, this is for the left as well. If you have a URL that promotes a liberal democrat ideology, you also do not want it used by someone who you disagree with. Now that's fair and balanced guys.

I'll check back in later, I have something rather large to get off my chest. Take care.

We had a hostess MIA for Tuesday's Cotillion dance, so Jody was kind enough to throw one together for the left-out wallflowers. Go check it out.

Also, who else has had it with the word verification at Blogger? It's reminiscent of high school typing class. They need words, not qctblvxw. It's hard to not make a mistake.

The Real America

Simply said, we live in the greatest country on God's green planet. Despite anything the left might have to say, witnessing the outpouring of generosity and assistance provided to the victims of Hurricane Katrina has been overwhelming. The funds that have been raised, the donated items, the offers of physical assistance to aid in the efforts; all done out of love and concern for our fellow man. Let's visit a few heroes.

Jane at Armies of Liberation continually informs the populace of the difficulties in Yemen and fights some political battles as well. I am always amazed by her courage.

Janette from Common Sense Runs Wild supplies us with links to sites assisting victims and their extended families. She has a great round-up to ease your web surfing.

Oddybobo, like most Americans, has had it with Cindy Sheehan and asks herself, and all of us as well "Does Cindy really speak for her son Casey?" Was he a hero? Make sure you read the comments, you'll find an interesting one in there.

Pamela lets us really know how she feels about the United Nations praising Ariel Sharon. The dishonest and corrupt actions of the UN are a slap in the face to Israel and Sharon. Thanks for always keeping us up to date on Israel Pam.

Ith from Absinthe & Cookies (who wasn't going to participate but I snagged something from her anyway) vents about Anne Rice and her comments regarding the "lack" of assistance in New Orleans. Pointing out the idiocy of the left with regards to Hurricane Katrina must be done. The lies need to end and it takes much tenacity to do it.

Raven has the intestinal fortitude to read what the foreign press has to say about America and Hurricane Katrina. CAUTION: It will make your blood boil. Here's a sample:

At the end of an unforgettable week, one broadcaster on Friday bitterly encapsulated the sense of burning shame and anger that many American citizens are feeling.

The only difference between the chaos of New Orleans and a Third World disaster operation, he said, was that a foreign dictator would have responded better.

It has been a profoundly shocking experience for many across this vast country who, for the large part, believe the home-spun myth about the invulnerability of the American Dream.

Tammy at A Mom And Her Blog has had to take a step back from the 24/7 reporting of Hurricane Katrina. One evening her daughter was overcome with emotion watching all of the reports. It's good to let our children see the world as it is, but sometimes we must draw them under our wing to protect them from that same world.

Are You Conservative does an entertaining, hypothetical senate hearing with ABC News President, David Westin, on the stand. I needed a good laugh after this week and it was provided here.

Annika is disappointed with the president; yes conservative Republicans can be upset with their chosen President. Here she analyzes his shortcomings addressing the nation with regards to Hurricane Katrina and what she thinks he should have said. Would you like a sample?

Bush's tone needed to recognize the reality of the situation on the ground now. The folks in the hell that was once New Orleans don't really give a flying fuck about Trent Lott's porch. They're not thinking about the rebuilding effort or whether the city will ever "be great again." They're worried about water, food, and whether they're going to get raped or killed when the sun goes down tonight.

In short, they're worried about survival, and they're understandably pissed at the government. Instead of recognizing that, the president tried to blow smoke up their collective asses. He should have let them know he was as impatient for results as they are.

Aaahhh, she does have a way with words, no?

Who else is a hero? Young Jabbar Gibson; this teenage boy used his common sense and took his friends and neighbors to safety. Well done, Jabbar, well done.

Make sure you go and visit the other fine hostesses today. The lovely Annika, the fabulous Right Girl and the stunning Merri. Please stop by their places and let them know that you appreciate their efforts.

Take care.

Non Cotillion Tuesday


Well, Katrina crashed our party, no Cotillion this week. We are all worried about Beth's home, she lives in the Mobile area and high-tailed it out of there Sunday morning. She's safe and sound in Birmingham, but who knows what there is to return to.

The little my mother has heard from the kin folk isn't good. Many of my relatives chose to stay believing that Katrina was going to New Orleans instead. I completely expect to turn on the news and see an aunt or uncle of mine being rescued.

Check back in with me later.

UPDATE: Em decided that she just couldn't live without Cotillion, so while sitting at the airport threw one together right quick. Make sure you go by and check it out.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Just spoke with my mother, my aunt in Pascagoula lost her house and everything's gone, even the car sitting in the driveway. I'm awaiting just as equally bad news from many more family members. Another aunt of mine living in Jackson (150 miles) away from the shore, lost the backside of her house. Geewhiz.

It's an earth-moving experience.

Preparing Ourselves For Presentation

Getting ready for our Cotillion dance is not an easy task. We can't just throw a blurb up on our site, we must properly prepare ourselves and it is a long and tedious task. In preparing for today's dance, it reminded me of how much effort we gals put into preparing ourselves to simply step outside the door. Let's journey through the regiments of a debutante together.


Since the dawn of time women have gone to great lengths to prepare themselves for presentation. Even Mona Lisa had a few beauty secrets.


Bad Hair Blog has a piece for us that I know eases my anxieties about pollution. It turns out the US isn't as environmentally irresponsible as the Greenies want us to believe. Dang girl, I told you not to use that hair dresser anymore.

b of f.jpg

What's more American than gun ownership? Not much for TFS Magnum. I called her to remind her that it was time to get ready for the dance, but she was busy. Plus she's day dreaming about an $80,000 gun.


What's your legacy? What will people say about you when you die? Yeah, Right, Whatever has a touching account of how recent deaths have affected her and she asked herself, and believes that we all should, contemplate what our story would be.

Its women like this that make me optimistic. I have felt for years now that the Feminist movement has abandoned it's original mission. Its so reassuring to know that that idea is indeed true and the results of this anti-movement are making themselves evident. Emily, if I had a daughter, I wish she would have been just like you.

I wonder if the original Women Suffragists help us get rid of this little number.


Have you ever sat and visited with an older person? Someone who has seen TRUE hardships? Someone who has witnessed more than anyone else we know? Soldier's Angels has. She is promoting podcasts of these interviews and is thrilled that she will be able to do this with her own family. There is much to be learned from generations past.

Back to getting ready for our dance; I asked a couple of the girls if they wanted to go to an outdoor day spa with me and I had some takers.


One girl was kind of shy and didn't want to join the rest of us.


The recent article from Newsweek regarding President Bush caught the eye of both Mary Katherine Ham and The Anchoress. Both of these ladies have broken down this article for you along with the critiquing of how President Bush was accosted on the Editorial page. Please make sure you go read both of them. They each have a unique dissection and are most definitely worth the read.

Raise your hand if you've heard about the recent NCAA communistic regime?

hairy pits.jpg
Whoa, they forgot to shave; better give them a call. Jody At Steal The Bandwagon has an opinion, that I think is shared by most people left or right, about the actions of the NCAA with regards to team names. This is the "PC Gone Wild Movement" that we have been attempting to warn you about for years.

Back to our dance; so a few of the girls couldn't make the mud bath but decided to give a different beauty treatment a shot. I think they went a little too far.


Jody is that you?

No? Whew, that was a close one.

My regular readers know that I'm constantly hemming and hawing about Islam. So when another one of the gals does a piece on it, it's hard to resist. Villainous Company has an excellent read up about the newly issued Fatwah and how much confidence we should put into it. It was one that I sat nodding my head all the way through.

Despite what anyone might believe, I'm one of those born-again Christians. God-fearing, Jesus-loving, death, burial and resurrection Christians. When I read this over at Who Tends The Fires I got goosebumps. It's an enlightening look at this woman's spiritual journey. I believe that we all need religion in our lives and I'm greatly pleased that she found it.

Okay, I'm not even going to ask about this one.

Lastly, SDA has a link to a Canadian newspaper reporting about a new cell phone being marketed to young children. Hmm. . .you decide.

I asked Right Girl if we could wear these little numbers to the dance, because she's hosting too; she wasn't too fond of that.

me and rg.jpg

Then I called Tammy because she too is a hostess. But she said that it brought back too many bad memories. So I now only have one more chance, Mary Katherine? Would you please go 70's with me to the dance? Pretty please? But seriously y'all, make sure you go and see the other ladies. We all work so hard to put on our dance just for you. Did we clean ourselves up well enough? You go be the judge.

Cleaning Up For Cotillion

All right, all right. We all know that I've been a bit of a pig lately.


In fact, I think I brought my husband down with me.


But I decided that this Tuesday I would clean myself up.

After all, we have some fine ladies pulling off this weeks dance. Please go visit:

Beth of My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy
