I'm just as proud as a peacock here. My sister is now a published writer..well published as in she wrote a letter to the editor and it got published but get it...

Shoot I couldn't be any happier if Steven brought me home a BIG OLE HONKING 12,000 BTU AC...Just Sayin... is a link to the article and then her response...

An article from has been sent to you from Jen. The link to this article is:

Not responsible

After reading the article about payback for slavery, I was incensed. I believe that slavery was wrong but do not see the good that would come from giving monetary retribution to descendents of slaves. We (the people of the United States), as a whole, cannot be held responsible for the actions of our ancestors.

My husband is a second generation American. Why should he and his family be held accountable for something that happened many years before his grandparents came over from Italy? And what about the people who had little or nothing and whose families didn't own slaves because they couldn't afford it? These people would be wronged if the United States started a retribution program for descendents of slaves. If a private corporation wants to do this, then fine, but do not hold those who are innocent accountable.


YOU GO GIRL...Now my five fans are calling me..

AHHH It's the Life for me...

Connor has decided that he no longer--you know now he's 2 and all--needs to take a nap..

I'd be a little more umm insistent but the little shit BROKE his crib---yes I said BROKE...tore apart broke...I tried to fix it like the little redneck my daddy taught me to be (with duct tape) but he got that off too, so I had to put him in his pack and play until Steven gets home..(Sunday, but I'm not counting the day's)

So, anyways, since he's decided he's too old to take a nap and he also wants to party late into the evening I've had to come up with a way to make him TIRED OUT so he goes to SLEEP easier at night..hence the hours and hours of outside play we've been doing.

I have my set up (chair, footstool, TV tray, book, glass of water, both phones--German and Stateside) and they have the pool, slip and slide, etc etc play the time we get in they are TIRED and ready for sleep...only problem is he wants to fall asleep when he eats which requires a quick out of the high chair--let him play some more until he is almost out on the floor then put him too bed...

Maybe I'll post pics tommorrow...ya know if the digital camera decides it's one of those day's it can work...

Ok now bear with me..I'm SO NOT a political person. I don't play the politics game. I sit back and watch so my sister Jennifer calls tonight and tells me to go to my hometown paper and read an article

this is taken from the Charleston, South Carolina Post and Courier's website

Slavery: Paybacks coming?
Reparations activists gaining momentum
Associated Press

Advocates who say black Americans should be compensated for slavery and its Jim Crow aftermath are quietly chalking up victories and gaining momentum.

Fueled by the work of scholars and lawyers, their campaign has morphed in recent years from a fringe-group rallying cry into a sophisticated, mainstream movement. Most recently, a pair of churches apologized for their part in the slave trade, and one is studying ways to repay black church members.

The overall issue is hardly settled, even among black Americans. Some say that focusing on slavery shouldn't be a top priority or that it doesn't make sense to compensate people generations after a historical wrong.

Yet reparations efforts have led a number of cities and states to approve measures that force businesses to publicize their historical ties to slavery. Several reparations court cases are in progress, and international human rights officials are increasingly spotlighting the issue.

"This matter is growing in significance rather than declining," said Charles Ogletree, a Harvard law professor and a leading reparations activist. "It has more vigor and vitality in the 21st century than it's had in the history of the reparations movement."

The most recent victories for reparations advocates came in June, when the Moravian Church and the Episcopal Church apologized for owning slaves, and promised to battle current racism.

The Episcopalians also launched a national, yearslong investigation into church slavery links and into whether the church should compensate black members. A white church member, Katrina Browne, also screened, at the denomination's national assembly, a documentary focusing on white culpability.

The Episcopalians debated slavery and reparations for years before reaching an agreement, said Jayne Oasin, social justice officer for the denomination, who will oversee its work on the issue.

Historically, slavery was an uncomfortable topic for the church. Some Episcopal bishops owned slaves, and the Bible was used to justify the practice, Oasin said.

"Why not (take these steps) 100 years ago?" she said. "Let's talk about the complicity of the Episcopal Church as one of the institutions of this country who, of course, benefited from slavery."

Also in June, a North Carolina commission urged the state government to repay the descendants of victims of a violent 1898 campaign by white supremacists to strip blacks of power in Wilmington, N.C. As many as 60 blacks died, and thousands were driven from the city.

The commission also recommended state-funded programs to support local black businesses and home ownership.

The report came weeks after the Organization of American States requested information from the U.S. government about a 1921 race riot in Tulsa, Okla., in which 1,200 homes were burned and as many as 300 blacks were killed. An OAS official said the group might pursue the issue as a violation of international human rights.

The modern reparations movement revived an idea that's been around since emancipation, when black leaders argued that newly freed slaves deserved compensation.

About six years ago the issue started gaining momentum again. Randall Robinson's "The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks," was a best seller; reparations became a central issue at the World Conference on Racism in Durban, South Africa; and California legislators passed the nation's first law forcing insurance companies that do business with the state to disclose their slavery ties. Illinois passed a similar insurance law in 2003, and the next year Iowa legislators began requesting, but not forcing, the same disclosures.

Several cities, including Chicago, Detroit and Oakland, Calif., have laws requiring that all businesses make such disclosures.

Reparations opponents insist that no living American should have to pay for a practice that ended more than 140 years ago. Plus, programs such as affirmative action and welfare already have compensated for past injustices, said John McWhorter, a senior fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute.

"The reparations movement is based on a fallacy that cripples the thinking on race, the fallacy that what ails black America is a cash problem," said McWhorter, who is black. "Giving people money will not solve the problems that we have."

Even so, support is reaching beyond blacks and the South.

Katrina Browne, the white Episcopalian filmmaker, is finishing a documentary about her ancestors, the DeWolfs of Bristol, R.I., the biggest slave-trading family in U.S. history. She screened it for Episcopal Church officials at the June convention.

"Traces of the Trade: A Story From the Deep North" details how the economies of the Northeast and the nation as a whole depended on slaves.

"A lot of white people think they know everything there is to know about slavery. We all agree it was wrong and that's enough," Browne said. "But this was the foundation of our country, not some Southern anomaly. We all inherit responsibility."

She says neither whites nor blacks will heal from slavery until formal hearings expose the full history of slavery and its effects.

A look at slavery reparations efforts

Some key recent developments in the push for slavery reparations:

--Every year since 1989, Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has pushed unsuccessfully for a federal law ordering a study of reparations.

--Disclosure laws have prompted companies including health provider Aetna Inc. and financiers Lehman Brothers and Wachovia Corp. to apologize for slavery ties. After JPMorgan Chase reported that two of its predecessor banks owned more than 1,200 Louisiana slaves taken as collateral in the 1800s, the bank established a $5 million scholarship fund for Louisiana blacks.

--Several lawsuits against 19 insurance, textile, railroad, financial services and tobacco companies with similar ties are making their way through federal courts.

--Advocates are calling for boycotts until such companies make reparations, said Kibibi Tyehimba, national co-chair of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America, or N'COBRA.

--Academics are researching the issue and publicizing their work at conferences, including one in February at the University of California, Berkeley, and two in March at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Another is scheduled this month in Ghana.


Ok now here's my lil ole rant..and I'll just put on my flame suit afterword. First of all..Why in the HELL am I paying for something my so called ancestors did...(and I know my ancestors didn't even do it cuz we were the poor damn white southern people..hell we were probably with the slaves too).

Second, how did it exactly hurt the one's alive today that their ANCESTORS were slaves and they need reparations and "black only" housing and business loans. I could understand if we were giving reparation to people who were slaves but come on..people whose ancestors were slaves..give me a break. Why don't we just say that my ancestors were poor white immigrants so I need reparations because I feel they were discriminated against by the rich white immigrants.

Why are we apologizing to people that we haven't hurt?? Why don't I just go over to the neighbors and apologize because she got a paper cut from licking an envelope??

I just think Black, White, Green, Red, Yellow, or Purple we are all human and we need to get over this shit. It's stupid and idiotic. We need to move forward and become one with each other. How can we expect our children to not look at color, outside looks,etc and to see the beauty within each other when we can't even get over something that happened to our ANCESTORS over 140 years ago. I personally teach my children that everyone brings something to the table and no matter what they look like or act like that there is something about everyone that is unique and beautiful, sometimes we have look to look hard but it is there.

Only me people, Only me

So the other day I went to clean a DVD disc for Lizzie to watch "quiet time" in my room and didn't have any alcohol in my house ( I had the kind you drink, loads of that actually, but I didn't have the kind I use to clean the DVD's)..anywho I had adult toy cleaner (For my family who reads this blog PUHLEASE people I know your dirty little secrets too so just close your durn mouths before the rest of the internet finds out.), which is basically alcohol and proceeded to wipe the DISNEY disc BAMBI down. I left it out on the bathroom counter.

Well, Katherine got up the next morning to do her hair and I guess found it sitting there and made SURE she left it sitting there with the "ADULT TOY CLEANER" sitting out on my counter towards me so I can see...

Any ideas when I can expect that one to come back and bite me in the butt???

OH and ED...I googled "Adult toy and Bambi" and nothing came up so sorry.

Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!!


he went from this..

to this

Now, my family and the other 2 of you who read's time for the obligatory birth story..YAY...says the crowd...

Here goes:
I'm one of those massively lucky women who don't feel contractions until well the VERY END...(no booing me people..I'm sorry get over it..)so, I got to pick Connor's birthday. Steven was at OTS (officer training school for you civilians out there) so I picked it because that was when the cutest doctor was going to be delivering...(hey a girl has to have her priorities straight)Umm Honey Love You/Mean It. Anywho back to the story..they tell me to be at said hospital at 6 too flippin early in the morning for induction and to EAT before. I said me, my sister Jennifer and Katherine ate at Waffle House and showed up and waited a short while before we were shown upstairs..

I got upstairs and waited 3 hours or so until 9 until the doc got there..seriously if he got to sleep in..why couldn't I??? so not fair.. They came in..said we're going to start you on some potossin and break your water. I said be ready with a lunch tray. I don't think the nurses believed me. Little did they know. So I sat and watched TV with Jen and Trisha and Katherine for a while and got a little uncomfortable and started peeing ALOT. I was getting up approximately every 4.5 seconds to go, until I couldn't get up anymore, then my darling sister and friend were changing the towels on the bed..Apparently the nurses would come in and say.."feel that one???" I'd say "nope" ...they'd say "hmmm" and leave..

Meanwhile the poor woman in the next room was in PAIN..screaming, hollaring, well you get the picture. I even asked if there was anything they could do for her.

Going back to me. A little after 11. I was feeling a little pressure and the nurses came in and said I had to lay on my side as the baby's heartbeat was going down..well duh lady wouldn't yours go down too if your head was squished...I kept trying but it was UNCOMFORTABLE. So, they checked me said "wow, you're ready to push"..2 or 3 pushes he was out. And the nurses said "you were'nt lying when you said to bring you a lunch tray were you???" Nope not me woman...bring on the food....

By the way..Katherine was there THE WHOLE TIME and did extremly well and stayed until the cord was still in the body and THEN she decided she'd had enough and went in the hall and waited.

That's Connor's Birth Story...

And not only is he one gorgeous kid..he's good too..'s my only but..he looks just like my sister if I didn't see him come out of my own body and I wasn't there the night he was concieved...I was there right steven?? (just kidding jeshhh)...I would wonder...

One of these days I'll get a picture of her and post it with Connor and you will see..
