PSA Reminder

As we get into the thick of winter, I would also like to remind us all we are getting deeper into the season of


Image result for wedding cloak

Remember, you can do your part to discourage use of this hooded monstrosity. Help brides who are in the throes of infatuation and unable to think clearly. No one wants to look back at their wedding photos and realize that their beautiful dress that they exchanged their firstborn's college education for was hidden the entire time by a thick, white, fur-lined hood.

However, know that if you do choose this hooded cloak, I won't boycott your wedding. I'll still come, support you, bring a gift, and I won't even make any comments about it.

But I'll be thinking them.


Side note: Claire just happened by, saw the picture, and screamed, "SANTA CLAUS!!!"

Need I say more?

Ok, I have a legitimate question, but for fear of being attacked on social media, I don't put it there.

I honestly don't understand why our government is funding Planned Parenthood at all.

I'm not even talking about different beliefs on abortion and contraception and what services are performed there, etc.

If it's a federal mandate that everyone has to have insurance, and that all insurances must offer coverage of contraception, why are they funding this?

I understand not all insurances do offer contraception coverage, that there are exceptions...I used to have coverage through one of the exceptions.

But do you get my point?

To me, it's like the government saying:

You must all enroll in dance classes.

And if you enroll in dance classes, you'll get free ballerina slippers.

Here, we're going to give tax dollars to this random place that sells ballerina slippers so that they can give ballerina slippers to people who can't afford them.

Surely it must be more complicated than that; I'm not trying to be crass. I honestly don't understand why this is going on, what the point is.

Why not just keep the money and use it elsewhere, or expand Medicaid or lower healthcare costs for the public? Or not take the tax dollars in the first place?
