Fun Subjects: Rape, Incest, and The Master Race (The Culture of Death, Part 2)

Warning: Foul Language Ahead Any time you talk to anyone about abortion, unless they are one of those soul-less “free abortions for everyone!” people, you will always come back around to this pro choice question: “What about in cases of rape and incest?” This is a valid question.  There are no easy answers.  Both rape […]

Welcome to the Culture of Death (no guns allowed)

One of the reasons I’ve stepped away from my blogging a little is because the political climate over the last two years has been, well, exhausting. In trying to deal with my increasing anxiety and a possible excessive use of alcohol to calm my nerves, I’ve cut myself off from people quite a bit.  Let’s be […]

Doggy Destiny

I thought some of my dedicated and loyal fans (hi mom!) might be interested in learning about how we ended up where are right now. Last February, I took my entire crew to our state capitol to participate in a medical marijuana rally. Obviously, there were tons of like-minded people there to talk to.  One, […]

(not so) Compassionate

It is no secret that West Virginia has a problem.  Truthfully, the word “problem” fails to grasp the true magnitude of what is happening here in the Mountain State. They call us pillbillies.  In the (not so) distant past, one of our larger towns, Huntington, was declared the opioid capital of the country.  We have […]

Prozac (not so) Me

Do you ever get the feeling that God is speaking to you? Maybe sending you a sign?             Not those kinds of signs, but the kinds that only you see.  I’ll give you two examples. Wednesday of last week was Ash Wednesday.  My sister was watching an episode of Roseanne. […]

(not so) Tongue Tied

Here’s an unusual way for The (not so) Special Mother to start a blog post: with some Bible verses.  Check it out. James, Chapter 3, verses 3-9 If we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we also guide their whole bodies.  It is the same with ships: even though […]

Hillbilly Strong

To say the State of West Virginia has had a rough couple of days would be a massive understatement. To make a long and extremely depressing story somewhat shorter, suffice it to say we received record rainfall amounts across much of the state, and as a result we had record flooding.         […]

Roman (Catholic) Mythology

Easter of 2013 was a big occasion for me.  I was confirmed into the Roman Catholic Church. Interesting for a girl who was raised by a Baptist minister, right? I won’t use this post to go into what lead me home to Holy Mother Church.  What has troubled me nearly every day since my confirmation […]

Tear Jerkers (Sorry, Mr. Sparks)

I just watched a video which listed the biggest tear-jerker movies of all time. I think movies based on Nicholas Sparks books made the list at least three times.  Maybe more.  I sort of lost interest about half way through. We just can’t get enough of the sappy, drippy, romantic tragedies, can we? What is it? Maybe […]

The (not so) Skinny

I’m fat. I’ve always heard that the first step in dealing with a problem is admitting you have one, so there you go.  I said it.  I’m fat.  Obese.  Portly.  Robust.  Chubby.  Rotund.  Chunky. Round. Not thin. You get the picture. I’ve never been what one would call a “skinny” person.  Certainly I’ve never fit […]
