Bass Ackwards

That was my grandmother’s phrase for something like this when she wanted to use profanity and knew she couldn’t as the wife of a very prominent deacon in the church. (Grandma was a pistol, let me tell you. If you’ve ever seen The Beverly Hillbillies, you’ve seen a version of her. Granny Clampett was theContinue reading “Bass Ackwards”

Persistent, Passionate, and On YOUR Side

I went to and participated in the Candidate Forum hosted by the LaGrange/Troup County Chamber of Commerce and the Lagrange Daily News. My opponent was there, of course. I really don’t care for the things because you cannot get into the topics with answers that are only one minute long and ‘off-the-cuff’. I’m a moreContinue reading “Persistent, Passionate, and On YOUR Side”

Now THAT’S What Scares Me

Halloween is not my “thing”. I just have never gotten the point of the whole thing. But then I don’t do circuses and clowns either (at least the Barnum and Bailey kind. Cirque du Soleil-yeah, I can get into those.) Scary masks, pranks, and boo-ing people, though? Nyah. I’ll meet you over at the hotContinue reading “Now THAT’S What Scares Me”

Rules and Regulations, And Why That’s A Good Thing (But Republicans Don’t Want Them)

I spent 25 years of my life learning how to make everything I did conform to the rules and regulations of not one but several government agencies. I was darn good at doing it, too. Now one of the things that most people do not realize is that these Rules and Regulations have the forceContinue reading “Rules and Regulations, And Why That’s A Good Thing (But Republicans Don’t Want Them)”

Okay, Who Is She Anyway?

I mean, other than being this retired older woman who has crazy ideas about how to do things, has cats, dogs, and horses, strong opinions, and does all things with a passion, just who is Ellen Wright? I am a native of Georgia. I was born in downtown Atlanta because at the time that’s whereContinue reading “Okay, Who Is She Anyway?”

Can We See Those Job Descriptions Again? I Don’t Remember Seeing That..

Most teachers are great people. They’re like nurses in a lot of ways. They want to help people, particularly children, learn things that they think is really fun, interesting, and helpful for life. (I know what you’re thinking and just don’t even go there. We all have different experiences.) It’s a challenging job. They haveContinue reading “Can We See Those Job Descriptions Again? I Don’t Remember Seeing That..”

Deadly Weapons

Let’s talk about weapons. Legally speaking, a vehicle is considered a “deadly weapon”. If you really want to get nit picky about it, a lot of things can go on that list (the hands/feet of a black belt martial arts master, sharp knives, bats, etc.) But we will stay with these two for clarity ofContinue reading “Deadly Weapons”

Constitutional Carry Turns Into Controversial Carry

In April of this year, Brian “Brainless” Kemp signed into law the bill that made it possible for darn near anyone to carry a firearm on their person. Now, supposedly, they are still supposed to get a background check done, but we all know that “private sales” do not have that restriction. That’s a problemContinue reading “Constitutional Carry Turns Into Controversial Carry”

BUT They Claim To Be FOR Our Military And Our Veterans. Yeah? Prove it!

If you go back through all the bills and legislation that has EVER come through both Washington, DC or through the state houses of this country, you will be extremely hard pressed to find ANYTHING where the Republican Party members have voted IN FAVOR of anything that has to do with taking care of ourContinue reading “BUT They Claim To Be FOR Our Military And Our Veterans. Yeah? Prove it!”

That’s The Logic Anyway

Now what REALLY buffaloes me is why any man who used to be in law enforcement would want to make it possible for every Tom, Dick, Desmond, Naomi, Diamond, and Ruby to be packing a weapon in concealed carry. But our Very Own State Senator did exactly that and he did it in spite ofContinue reading “That’s The Logic Anyway”
