Beware of any political party who seeks to limit access to higher education… Here’s the headline and story, and actions that I am referring to: “The GOP bill to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, introduced by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) on Friday, would eliminate the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, which erases student debt for […]

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

0 comments

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad. This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of […]

I Began My Voting Life as a Republican

0 comments

Are you a Democrat? An Independent? A Republican? Have you ever changed your party affiliation? More often than not, people become affiliated with a political party based on their heritage (in my experience). It’s a family tradition. Even suggesting that someone vote differently than their parents can start an argument. (Now I was born and […]

Hugs – Campaign 2016

As I watch our presidential candidates eagerly campaigning for primary votes, I listen for their words of love as well as their words of wisdom, leadership and strength.  I look for signs of love for their fellow country men and women.

Biblical Principles for Voting

0 comments

For those searching the Bible for Biblical principles on voting in this presidential election… The Bible says:  Abortion or inflicted miscarriage is not considered murder.  Aliens deserve the same laws as everyone else – illegal or not.  We should be good stewards of the planet – so go green!   We are most Godlike when […]

One War is One Too Many

I don’t know who this young man is or where he is from, but when I look at this photo I just want to hug him and take him to his home – just snatch him right out of there. Opinions on war have never been more important than they are right now – during […]

Character in a Presidential Candidate

2 comments

I’m not so proud of many things I did as a young person, but I can honestly say that I never intentionally hurt anyone, physically or otherwise. Mitt Romney’s “hijinks” (as he calls them) as a senior in his “prep” high school which involved holding a gay boy down and cutting his hair, seem to […]

Supporting Gay Marriage Political Ploy

6 comments

Surely everyone has heard the news by now… Political Ploy? Doesn’t make sense! President Obama has become the first president in history to support same-sex marriage. Many are saying that supporting gay marriage is nothing more than a political ploy, but if that were the case, it is certainly one with a huge risk. While […]

FDA Publishes Problem Drugs on Web

1 comment

As of yesterday, September 5th, the FDA has finally posted a page at their website listing the top 20 potentially harmful drugs in compliance with a bill passed by Congress last year forcing them to report potentially unsafe drugs to consumers. Problem is, the percentages of people affected are not listed. So you don’t know […]

Hillary Clinton – Phone attacks in South Carolina

2 comments

Living in South Carolina and waiting for Saturday’s Democratic Primary … Wrong turn for politics – phone calls with accusations – not urging a vote, but discouraging a vote – I’m sick to my stomach – a sad day in America. Today is Wednesday. Approximately one hour ago, I received a phone call to my […]

About the Circus of Life Blog

My little rant at the beginning of my blog is taking up too much space, so I decided to turn it into a post – About the Circus of Life Blog. We are living at the circus in these United States of America, and possibly throughout the world. A circus of loose lipped media, not-so-worthy […]
