The Truly Godless One

As hard as it was, I bit my tongue the first time Ann Coulter came out to publicize her book Godless. I bit my tongue until it bled when she called the 9/11 widows harpies whose husbands were probably planning to divorce them when they were killed. But if I don't speak out now I may well burst a blood vessel. Ann Coulter was just on Hardball with Chris Matthews on MSNBC. Once again, she was promoting her book. Matthews was interviewing her outside with a crowd of people around.

Into the interview, he allowed the people watching to ask her questions. One woman asked Ann how she could call other people Godless when her own words regarding Al Gore were so mean and judgemental. Ann's answer was to insult the woman and saying she just obviously wasn't as "perky" as the woman was. Another guy asked her a question about how she handles opposing viewpoints from the liberal press and she turned around and said she had no trouble with liberal press people unlike little miss bubbly.

I have noticed that Ann never answers questions by actually answering the questions. Instead, she just attacks whoever is criticizing her and anyone else. Everything wrong with the world according to Ann Coulter is the fault of LIBERALS. Anyone who is a liberal, according to Ms. Coulter's highly Educated opinion, is a traitor to this country and a coward. Let's explore that opinion shall we? Hmm, Bush and his entire White House are conservatives. The majority of the House and Senate are conservatives. Ann's a conservative. Just how many of them are either serving or have a child serving in the military? How many of them or their children are over in Iraq on the front lines? How many of them or their children have been killed? Answer to all 3 questions....NONE!

Yet these people have had the nerve to call people like John Kerry, and even republican John McCain cowards and defeatists. People who actually SERVED! Now, back to Ann Coulter's opinions as quoted in her book. According to Ms. Coulter the 9/11 widows should not be allowed to criticize the Iraq war because no one can challenge their views without looking like insensitive idiots. Like Ann doesn't look that way anyway. But Ann, once again, you have made a false statement, no surprise there. You can say that while you respect their opinions and why they have them, this is why you disagree with their viewpoint. And you still look respectful...what a concept.

Then there is Ann Coulter saying the 9/11 widows are harpies whose husbands were probably planning to divorce them. Once again, I prove my point that Ann can NOT make a point about anything without resorting to insults and extremely cruel and uncalled for statements of opinion. Yet Ann has the audacity to call LIBERALS godless. Uh Ann, I hate to break it to you but shouldn't you have given up name-calling in grade school?

Next up, Ann has had the nerve to say the 9/11 widows are actually happy that their husbands are dead because they have gotten famous off the deaths. Not only is that assertion ludricrous, but isn't that what Ann Coulter has done without having been related to anyone who died that horrible day? Isn't the whole message of her book, which she is trying to SELL to the public, spawned on the backs of those who died? Isn't her fame and money coming from the exploitation of a terrible tradgedy? Yet she has the gall to attack the 9/11 widows for demandng answers from the government about why their husbands died? Ms. Coulter, the only GODLESS one in this debate is you.

I am asking anyone who reads my blog to please boycot anything Ann Coulter does. This woman is without a doubt the most hateful and spiteful woman I have ever had the misfortune to hear from. I myself am a liberal and proud of it. But unlike Ms. Coulter, I do respect people with opposing viewpoints. I think people with different opinions are what makes this country great. Ann Coulter, on the other hand thinks anyone who dares to have a different opinion than hers is a traitor to this country. But then, as the picture of her shows, she would gladly bring back the era of McCarthyism.

Upcoming Book Not To Be Missed

If you have read Annette Blair's first two hilarious witch novels, than like me you are looking forward to the next installment due out in December of this year. The Scot, The Witch & The Wardrobe is the next witch tale to come down the pipeline of Blair's imagination. Here is a synopsis of the story.

Victoria Cartwright inherits an old trunk. A magical trunk passed down throughout her family line along the female side. This trunk is sealed shut and can't be opened until it passes to one who possesses the first family member's magical powers.

Rory MacKenzie is desperate to restore his family's honor in the small Scottish town of Caperglen. A town that is very superstitious. Many years ago, his family was tricked into giving away a unicorn with a zodiac sign attached to it. The family was tricked by a witch. Drawn to Salem, Massachusettes by a description of the unicorn, Rory seeks out Victoria. And although strongly attracted to Victoria, Rory refuses to give in to a woman he believes to be a descendant of the witch who tricked his family.

Unfortunately for Rory, ignoring his desire for the sexy clothing witch is proving to be as difficult a task as getting so much as a glimpse of the unicorn.

I read both The Kitchen Witch and My Favorite Witch. They were great and supremely funny. I have The Scot, The Witch & The Wardrobe on pre-order through Amazon and I am so looking forward to it. It's gonna make the perfect Christmas gift. I love these stories. I've put up a picture of the cover. Just click on it if you want to see a larger image.

Lynsay Sands Does It Again!

I just finished A Bite To Remember by Lynsay Sands. It was hilarious. Lynsay's Argeneau series is awesome and A Bite To Remember is the latest installment of her funny vampire series. Lynsay's quirky sense of humor shines throughout the whole book. Here is what the back cover says:

Rule number 1: Never get involved with someone who won't be there for you when the sun comes up.

Once bitten, twice shy, and sexy PI Jackie Morrisey wasn't going there again. Vincent Argeneau may be the hottest guy she's ever met, living or dead, but she's here to stop a killer from turning this vampire into dust, not to jump into bed with him.

Rule number 2: Never kiss a vampire...it can be a pain in the neck.

Okay, so Vincent's had four hundred years to perfect his kissing skills, and he does look rather tempting when he runs around the house shirtless. He's also charming, protective... did we mention he can kiss? Jackie needs to be on her guard, or else she'll have to come up with a new rule:

If your going to fall in love with a vampire, make sure it's a bite to remember.

I could not put this book down. I stayed up all night reading it. Each book in the series is capable of being a stand alone, but if you'd like to read them in order of events happening, they go A Quick Bite, Love Bites, Single White Vampire, Tall Dark And Hungry, and A Bite To Remember.

For those of you who have read this series thus far, I have talked to Lynsay via email and yep, there will thankfully be more. Next in line is Marguerite's story. She's the 700 year old mother of the first four vamps and the aunt of Vincent. And if you have read the books, you know what a character she is. In fact, there is a hilarious surprise ending with Marguerite at the finish of A Bite To Remember.

I know I'm gushing, but this book was just so good and funny. In the beginning, you want to slap Jackie so hard. You think she's just nasty. But you quickly learn why she hates vamps and you just can't help but love her. Her partner, Tiny, is so funny. Really, I highly suggest reading this book. Go out and get a copy, or maybe two or three.:-) I bought 2 copies because I know I'll wear out the first really fast from re-reading it. It's that good.

I am a total bug freak. I fear all insects whether they bite, sting, or just plain look ugly. Big bugs, little bugs, doesn't matter. And I am not talking minor fear here. I am talking heart-pounding, chest-bursting panic type fear. A fly comes into my house and I can't rest until I have hunted the thing down and killed it. I drag my cats from room to room because they have better eyesight than we humans and can tell me if the bug I am hunting is present. I make my Mom stop whatever she is doing and help me look. Drives her batty.

If a bug buzzes past my ear, even a harmless little fly, I will yell in sheer terror. Hmm, we had a pre-emptive war or terror, can we declare war on insects? They terrorize me so why not? I have been this way all my life and I don't know why. I just fear bugs....ALL BUGS. I mean I literally have panic attacks when they are around me.

My apartment complex is upgrading our apartments to be more energy efficient. They are adding energy saver windows and doors. To do this they are spending the summer knocking out the old doors and windows and leaving big gaping holes in the walls. This is definately gonna let the bugs in. They haven't gotten to our apartment yet, but you can imagine I am not looking forward to this.

I hate summer. I would much rather it be winter all year. No bugs in winter. They are all hibernating, far away from us poor people. Bugs, eww icky yuck. I hate em all. Happy 4th of July everyone. I hope you have a safe and happy holiday.
