Here’s my Brief Blogger’s Bio!

Back before the year 2000, my husband started talking to me about this guy named Drudge. I hate to admit it, but I listened with one ear because I didn’t understand why he was so enthused about him. Then came Election 2000. I became glued to the computer after I discovered the internet had the most recent information about what was happening in that scrambling aftermath. We were living in New Hampshire at the time, but because I’m a native Floridian and a relative was a county elections supervisor in the state (not one of the counties with recount problems!), I wanted to keep up with the latest news. So I began my journey into the world of ConservativeCyberPolitics.

I found Scott Ott’s ScrappleFace blog and started reading my way through his blogroll. In summer of 2004 I took the plunge and began commenting on a political blog. In 2006 I started writing posts for the first of several group blogs that I’ve joined. In 2010 I began my first personal blog to encourage Christian women.

Now I’m branching into blogging on politics with a focus on home and family. Those happen to be two of the hottest political buttons today, and since I’m a wife and mom I do have some definite thoughts on those issues. I have a degree in math education, and I’ve enjoyed dabbling in history. You bring to writing who you are, and I can contribute insight as a Christian woman who has reared children and taught them at home, along with my interests and analysis honed by my mathematics training in proofs and logic. That’s why you’ll find links in the sidebar not only to other blogs, but to articles on reason and propaganda and to resources that include historical documents and current writings on our nation and issues of the day.

HS Senior Year

Further into my past, you might be interested to know that I was in college during the late 60’s and early 70’s during that time of questioning existence and meaning as war protests and radicals overran campuses. The Left is not a stranger to me—the generation I took classes with and knew then, now walks the halls of power. I became a Christian during those years, and so I encountered not only their politics, but their scorn and disbelief of my faith.

I watched Watergate unfold on television, survived the Carter years, and voted for Reagan. While I may not immediately remember all the details, that means I can at least usually recognize when a talking head is trying to put a revisionist spin on the past!

My husband enjoys reading and commenting on financial sites, although he still checks in with Drudge! He’ll be helping me with comment moderation. Our children are now young adults; our daughter is a freelance artist and aspiring writer, and our son is a computer science major who is also in R.O.T.C.

Thanks for joining me here. I hope you take away some thoughts, information and encouragement!

  1. Ms. INC
    I have been reading Hot Air for about 6 months now, and am anxiously awaiting the next open registration. In so doing, I have become familiar with the “regulars”–who they are, what they like, how they react, funny, serious—they almost feel like friends.
    Today I was reading the thread about Obama calling his former employer, BI, “the enemy”. We all know about, or have read “Dreams from my Father”, where this experience was first introduced.
    I don’t know if you have seen or heard about the new movie, “2016”. Written, directed, produced by Dinesh D’Souza, it’s a documentary that basically explains his book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage”, and his very compelling theory of what’s behind Obama’s, shall we say, “marxist” tendencies.
    I tell you this because of your comment and interest in Alice Dewey. I believe this woman was interviewed in this movie; it shed some very interesting and heretofore unknown (at least by most people) information on Obama, and his family and early upbringing.
    The movie was released as a limited engagement in Houston (where I am and where I saw it). From what I understand, D’Souza does not have the kind of money or backing to get it released nationally, yet, although several conservative radio hosts and stations are trying to help. He is talking to people in Los Angeles and New York.
    Again, I only mention this due to your interest in Dewey. But I believe this is a film that needs to be seen by all Americans, and soon, i.e, BEFORE the election. Any way that I can get the word out, or pass on info to those bloggers and websites that might be helpful to this end is my goal.

  2. Kathy, I’m glad you dropped by and hope to see you over at HA eventually!

    Thanks for letting me know about the documentary. I’ve heard of his book, although I haven’t read it, but I don’t think I’ve heard of the movie. I will look into it. It’s fascinating that Alice Dewey was interviewed for the movie. I’m a bit surprised that she would go public, but I guess she’s proud of her Obama connection.

    BTW, I deleted your last name from your comment to protect your privacy.

  3. Dear Mrs. INC,
    Thank you for providing a link to the Witherspoon Institute on Hot Air. The links there and on this blog are great.
    Regards,
    Peter.

  4. INC:

    I praise God for you and your faithfulness to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    I have always enjoyed your well-informed, thoughtful posts at Hot Air.com. You are well-read, and your reasoned posts (along with your considerate and respectful tone and Christian attitude) bring Honor to our King.

    You and (JGAPINOY — who is now known as ITSNOTABOUTME) are my favorite HA commentators.

    Keep up the great work.

    Your Labor in the Lord is Not in Vain.

  5. Hi ColtsFan! I’m glad to see you over here! Let me say that over the years I’ve always appreciated what you brought to HA.

    Thank you for the encouragement. It came at a time when I needed it, because writing about home and family brings with it a spiritual battle, and part and parcel of that is wondering if it’s worth the trouble, if it does any good, or if I’m even doing what the Lord wants me to do at the moment. I have to keep praying for wisdom and soldiering on, and a comment such as yours helps shed continuing light.

    (I’ve made all the corrections and deletions as you requested).

  6. Hi INC! Super thoughtful blog you have here. Don’t know why it took me so long to get here, but I’ll be back often.
    Your pal at HotAir,
    petefrt

  7. Hey, Pete! Thank you for your kind words. Things have been slow around here, because I’ve had so much going on the past year. Our son got married, my husband has a new job, and we moved to another state. I hope you poke around a bit. I’ve worked at building a library of links in the side bar..

    BTW, there was a delay in your comment posting because I have to approve the first comment anyone makes. It helps keep down trolls and spam.

  8. Congrats to you, your hubby and your son.

    I’ll check links. Titles look interesting.

    Yes. Moderation, good. Trolls, bad.

    Speaking of upstream of politics, do you use Twitter? #PJNET?

  9. Thanks!

    No, I’m not on twitter at the moment. It’s something I’ve thought about doing, but have yet to take that plunge.

  10. I started with it several months ago, not because I enjoy social media, but because social media… like it or not… is upstream of politics. With Buffer and PJNET you can establish quite a conservative presence using a couple hours/day.

  11. Please tell me the SOURCE of the quote by Dewey:
    There is no god and there is no soul. Hence, there is no need for the props of traditional religion. With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable truth is dead and buried. There is no room for fixed and natural law or permanent moral absolutes.

    John Dewey

    It is NOT from the Humanist Manifesto. Where did he write this?

    Many thanks

  12. Hi Mary, Thanks for your comment and question.

    When I used the quote several years ago I sourced it from Accuracy in Media. I went back and checked, and they do not give an exact source. At the time I probably used the quote from AIM because I trust them as a source. I also may have done so because I found it used elsewhere by an independent source. I really do not remember.

    Searching for it today I found issues4life.org sourced it from Teachers Magazine, September 1933.

    http://www.issues4life.org/blast/2010333.html

    I do try to double-check and sometimes triple-check sources to make sure something isn’t just being made up. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    I can’t do any more extensive research on it right now. As you may have noticed from a front page post I’m in rehab right now recovering from two broken arms, and I’m limited by ability and energy on what I can do.

    Thanks again for your comment, and I hope you find some profitable and helpful information here.

  13. Oh my heavens God bless you for even attempting to answer. I am so sorry about your situation. Be brave and I will say some prayers for you. I hope this quote pans out. I have spent hours and would like to include it in my book but honestly, knowing John Dewey and all the cryptic Marxists I doubt he would be that forthright. But I’ll try to track it. Will let you know.

    God bless and get well. We need you for the fight! John Dewey caused more damage than Hiroshima. Mary Nicholas

  14. Thank you Mary!

    I really do appreciate your prayers as it has been a long and difficult time for me. I agree with you on the huge amount of damage Dewey caused. His ideas and philosophy spread to teachers colleges and in turn those colleges spread Dewey’s thinking to teachers. Now we see the results in several generations of Americans who came through the public schools.

    Also, I want you to know that when I approved this last comment of yours, I did so from an administrative area that only showed the first three lines. After approval, when I saw the entire comment I found there was information that came through in the comment box itself that looked like some data transfer from your phone. That info included my original reply and your email address.

    I don’t know why this happened. I’ve not seen it before. The email you left in the specified email box remained hidden as it is supposed to be.

    I quickly deleted the email and the data in the comment box. It was only up for about a minute or less, but I did want to let you know about it. In the future I’ll go to a different administration area that shows the entire comment.

    May God bless you and give you wisdom as you write your book!
