She has struck again.  Poor thing.

Fox actually posted a fairly good article today titled ‘Show Me the Economist Who Says We Are in a Crisis Because of a Birth Control Shortage.’

Very rarely will I say this in response to anything biased affiliated with Fox News, but Amen.

I can understand the concept of  ‘fewer mouths = less food.’  However, I am somewhat confused on the prioritization shown by Madam Speaker.  Of all the things to spend taxpayer money on in this crucial time, let’s federally fund some condoms; perhaps Pelosi sat down with Mobile Mayor Sam Jones while he was in Washington for the inauguration and he mentioned our lovely moonpie.  Okay, I admit, that was harsh.  But really.

Newsflash: condoms (inexpensive, if not free) are readily available to anyone who is concerned about birth control.  Oral contraceptives, including Plan B (or the Morning-After pill) are so easy to obtain it’s embarrassing.  The problem is not the lack of options, it’s people who just don’t care.

We all need to pray that nothing happens to the line of succession ahead of Ms. Pelosi. I will continue to post my commentary on things political.

and Matt – if you agree with Pelosi, I’m gonna punch you.  You are my favorite economist, yes, but I will still punch you.

Good night.

Why am I having chest pains? Is it the untidiness (is this a word) of my room?  the fact that I’m panicking over finals? the prospect of failure? all of the above?

ugh.

Can I go to London now? kthnx.

Today I had a really great chat with my lit professor. She’s a great lady, and she really understand my intense passion for family and dreams and goals. We talked about majors and marriage and school and children and movies. It was really nice to just have someone who could play a huge role in my future tell me that I’m doing okay and that I’m on the right track.

In class today we talked about a Dr. Simpson in the econ department at the university who is under federal investigation for possession and distribution of child pornography. REALLY?! ugh.
