About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

What we have in common

Ok, I was shocked this morning when I learned that Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen had said that the wife of the presumed Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, was unqualified to speak about the kinds of economic issues facing women in America because she had never "worked a day in her life." I am shocked! That is like the democrats stating that anyone who does not own a car, can not have an opinion on the energy issues facing the American people. Huh? No, that makes no sense what so ever. Well neither did Hilary Rosen's comment make any sense discounting one women's opinion simple because of her choice of career.

Isn't it time that women stop attacking other women because of their choice in jobs. Don't we have more in common as women that unites us? I think so! As a women voter in this country I believe that we have a lot in common! What we have in common is what we care about, and what we are concerned about. Here is a list that I think we have in common:

We care if the price of gas hits $5.00 a gallon.

We care if the price of groceries rises.

We care about if the schools we send our children to are safe.

We care if the schools we are sending our children to are effective in teaching our children.

We care that U.S. students are falling behind other nations test scores.

We care and are concerned about the standards and quality of food that is available for us to buy.

We care about the price of health care.

We care about our aging parents and grandparents.

We care about how we are going to pay for the orthodontist.

We care about how ANY country handles nuclear material!

We care about the treatment and respect of our armed forces and the retired armed forces.

We care about the after effects if an uninsured motor vehicle operator hits our vehicle.

We care about drunk driving.

We care about our unsecured borders.

We care about the illegal immigrant situation here in the U.S.

We care about tax codes and how they impact us.

We care about sales and property taxes.

We care about our neighborhoods, and the safety of our families.

We care about cancer research.

We care that our justice system works for everyone.

We care if x-rays at the dentist are bad for you.

We care about skin damage by the sun

We care about paying for eye glasses or contacts.

We care that autism is excluded under health insurance provisions.

We care that America is struggling and losing their battle with weight.

We care if our children are being bullied at school.

And I think it is safe to say we care about these concerns, and worry about these things and many more, probably All before lunch!

Now we may All have different views or opinions on how to solve, or fix the above concerns. However, wouldn't it make better use of our time talking about how to solve or handle the above concerns instead of attacking each other personally? Maybe the first step towards getting respect is giving it to others.


  1. Great post Amy...women care a LOT about a LOT of different things and shame on anyone to allude otherwise. The state of our economy is getting so fragile...just makes me sad!

  2. Amen! I'm curious to know if this 'expert' has any children of her own. She'd know what real work is. The hardest--but most rewarding--job around. One without a time card or vacation days. One with the best perks you can dream of though!
