Dear Friends Of The Blog!
The site has been quiet because my job has picked-up recently and I’m super busy, working hard and — just as any other Mama Capitalist worth her salt — hoping for a nice pay raise. As usual, I’ll keep you updated on all my earnings as a working mom making it in a decent American company.
Inspiration has been brewing while I toil away, though. Here are a few teasers of articles in the pipeline…
Corporate Charity Is A Crime
I have had it up to HERE with corporations trying to bilk American moms out of more money to feed/clothe the poor — for profit.
Corporations are in the business of making profits and have found a way to make charity profitable. We should all beware of this growing practice. I will share my thoughts on that in a future post.
The Political Penis
All of the news surrounding Arnold Schwartzenegger’s dalliances and secret child have my mind moving in all things moms, penises and politics. The fact is we need more moms in politics and less penises (I mean that literally, I have nothing against the men themselves). The political penis problem entered our culture at the same time “The Lewinsky” entered our lexicon. The airing of sexual circumstances of politicians has degraded the context of important social and economic issues that we all need to be focused on. The affect of childish banter on our politics has been embarrassing and needs to be done away with.
Population Issues & The World’s Mothers
My new blogosphere friend, David from Population Oversights and I, have put together an article analyzing solutions to over-population. His blog is a smartly written assessment of our current population challenges and I invite you to visit his site. He’s got an interesting new article up on the film Avatar. And if the political undertones in the film were not interesting enough, it stars one my favorite actors. Our article will be running on both sites very soon!
Also, anyone out there part of Toastmasters? I am thinking about joining as I would like to take my ideas into a public speaking format. Any thoughts on the club would be appreciated!
For those of you that I read and comment frequently, I’ll be visiting again very soon.
