Summer Tripping

Not sure about you, but this blogger has been busy! And there just hasn’t been a lot of time for blogging – besides it’s Summer in DC and as with all things, in August, the town slows down, moreover it slows down even more as August draws closer. There’s a sort of slow down before…


Uh No Trump.

That Donald Trump, he’s really getting out there with the running for President in the GOP stuff, eh? Nevermind that a lot of evidence has come out that he would put or has admired super liberal/progressive politicians and thought of them for positions in his administration. Or that he has created a quagmire with the…


Changing the Picture

This blogger promised to put up new pictures with each season, er, sort of with each season. Recently, she made a Hello Kitty and flagĀ  July 4th style centerpiece for her dining room table. It only seemed fitting after the new Southern Hello Kitty flag debued on the social media circuit, to let the world…


Dat Social Media Tho’

Social media has gotten rather odd over the past few weeks with all the crazy news events coming out at once. And when you look back at this year, heck, your life, you will remember the up and down and all over the place news cycle of the Summer of 2015. It’s really been a…


Beta

You probably didn’t or can’t miss the fact that a man was brutally stabbed to death this past week-end on the metro. And this blog post from “The Federalist” probably summarizes the ridiculousness of the man being stabbed to death in front of other men pretty well. On the afternoon of July 4 in Washington…


Not So Nice Anymore

The area has become less nice. People used to value manners, they used to value keeping their nasty opinions to themselves at…


Changing Titles

Everything changes over time. And this blogger decided it was time to change the name of this blog, it’s been Deborah Corey for years, about 5 to be exact. Before that, this blogger wrote for and ran The Polireport and Confessions of a Red Head blogs. Those are both retired now and long in the…


Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! Be safe and look after your pets. The Oatmeal even made a special PSA on the topic of pet safety for the 4th of July this year! And one last thing, this blogger just had to run a patriotic email message that my Syrian American cousin Brownie used to run, he…


And the Women

This is a straight up politics, Women and the GOP post. After spending several years, well actually many years doing work for the GOP one thing this blogger has learned up close is the dynamic with women. As one male friend and leader (from the actual GOP) put it “Women are the backbone of the…


The Real Unemployment Rate

You may have saw the report on the real unemployment rate this week – it’s kind of disturbing – but the news explains a lot about the U.S. In a memo to clients provided to Secrets, David John Marotta calculates the actual unemployment rate of those not working at a sky-high 37.2 percent, not the…
