A Little About Me
Who cares about my “Commentary”? I do, so I write it. You might, so you read it. If you really do, you may even comment.
Though originally intended to be “a Political Commentary”, I have since decided I may like to stray occasionally, and changed it. Yet, my instincts drive me to write when my passions are ignited by something… when I feel outraged… when I feel I can’t be silent. Politics seems to do this most often.
Think about it: How many times have we been told that Quinnipiac or Gallup has determined a certain opinion for the entire country, yet that opinion in no way reflects ours? The words, “no one ever asked me” can be heard in my head every time I hear poll results – and, for that matter, “no one ever asked anyone *I* know.”
Well, no one has to ask me. I have a blog now… :-)
I’m Debi, writing under NomDebPlume. I am dangerously close to middle-age and have lots of opinions. I live in Pennsylvania, in what tourists refer to as “Amish Country”, but – as one born and raised in Brooklyn, NY – in no way resemble the Amish… :-/ I have 4 children who range in age from 8 to 25, which I think certifies me as a lunatic, but please don’t disregard my opinions as a result. ;-)
We might as well get THIS out of the way right off the top: I’m a Republican (No, say it isn’t so!), though I don’t like being pigeonholed with labels. I like to think of myself as a [somewhat] open-minded Republican. Yes, I subscribe to traditional values, as a Christian woman, I must… but I also hate guns. With the Party being touted as geared toward the rich, I truly don’t fit in on that count. It’s a ‘pick-and-choose’ kind of world. You’ve got to be able to sleep at night and look at yourself in the mirror in the morning. And since I ain’t no Hollywood starlet, being a Republican helps to accomplish that for me.
Never stop asking questions… seeking knowledge… or seeking The Truth,
