So, here is a recap of things in my world that has been in my sphere ~ probably yours too ;)
First off, redistricting in NY state has been finalized ~ and it was great for us here in my district. Our representative is still able to run for us! The district lines were favorable and fair. So glad I'll be able to vote for Rep. Buerkle. She has been a good voice for us in New York. Plus, she is a confirmed speaker at Smart Girl Summit this year! Yay!
Now, the other things is where my "dander gets up", so to speak. I was saddened by the news that Sen. Santorum suspended his campaign. He was my pick, and I am so sad that I won't be able to cast my ballot for him in 12 days. But, I don't blame him, although I was looking VERY much forward to having a homeschooler in the White House. But, not yet.
Another one that gets me just plain angry ~ This whole fiasco. The liberals are set on starting a Race war. And the rhetoric and parties involved are ramping it up to a level that is totally not necessary. And this one just boils my blood. I see a total "Top down, bottom up, inside out" possibility which spells hard times ahead.
And finally (well, not really, but the last one I will mention) is this ~ Faux apology to Ann Romney . UGH. I repeat UGH. And this war on women that the left has launched. It's despicable. And let me tell you, as much as they like to scream that they speak for all women out there. They don't speak for me. They don't speak for conservatives. They don't speak for us.
Don't let them speak for you! You are strong. Use your voice!
