SusanLife15 Comments

I’m not sure if this is a new thing for Dr. Laura or if she’s always been big on broadcasting her disgust of fat people, but this week, again, she’s got the solution for obesity. Hint: it isn’t “love yourself as you are.” This taken from her “call of the day” page. Lynn: What do you do with an eating … Read More

There has been a lot going around the internet these past few weeks regarding the conventions. I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to most of it, because I think that the conventions are little more than unpaid advertisements for either side and while the speeches can be inspiring, there isn’t much new.

Oh, the Nice Guyâ„¢. You know the type. “Why do women always go for the jerks, why don’t they go for Nice Guys like meeeee?” The Nice Guy syndrome is problematic in and of itself (like people should be rewarded for their kindness with sex), but this crapdate takes it to the next level.
