Check out this list of mom bloggers who have strong political opinions and aren’t afraid to share them.
Last week we talked about the definitional differences in political parties. As you saw - there are as many different combinations of political views in the world as there are parenting styles. Whether or not someone is on the same point of the political spectrum as you - you can usually learn a thing or two from hearing their opposing views. With that in mind, I decided to create (and share) a list of my top favorite political blogs from moms in a variety of political ideologies. All these ... Continue Reading
Gary Johnson will be listed on the ballot in the majority of states. Why not Oklahoma?
We have talked about the fact that not everyone in our nation prescribes to one particular political party. In fact, a third of the citizens in the US are registered as Independent or in another party aside from Democrat or Republican. However, when the presidential elections come around every four years we typically only see debates for the two candidates from the major parties. And sometimes those are the only two we see on the state ballot. Many of us assume that the presidential ballot is ... Continue Reading

Are school lunches healthy? And what can you do about it?
Education and educational spending is always a hot button issue in political campaigns. However, one area that seems to take a back seat is the school’s lunch program. Many students’ lunches are subsidized by the federal government due to families meeting certain income guidelines. The program is designed to allow children of low-income families the opportunity to eat at school on the free and reduced lunches program. It also now extends to breakfast for most schools. The issue that has ... Continue Reading
Frequently traveling across state borders and between cities means taking many political factors into account.
Many people view my family as a little unconventional. When my husband or I are asked where we work, we can both happily reply, “at home.” Likewise, when asked where our children go to school, we give the same response. As you can see our home is a little busy. We have two adults working full-time jobs while schooling our children, all from home. As if that isn’t enough to turn heads, we also chose to embrace the world (or at least the contingent United States) for all it has to offer. ... Continue Reading
Are GMO companies getting the best of both worlds – obtaining patents and avoiding labeling?
I have discussed genetically modified food a number of times in regards to the outcry for labeling. Obviously people feel they have the right to know what is in their food. However, producers of these genetically modified seeds continue to say that there is nothing to label. "Corn is corn," as they would say. Organic corn is corn - just as Round-Up Resistent corn is corn. Even if I fully believed that genetically modified food posed absolutely no health threat to society at all and that the ...
