Guest Post at C'est La Vie

I was invited by one of my favorite bloggers, Lydia of C'est La Vie, to guest post about what a lady should know about politics and government for her "Being a Lady" series.   Be sure to check out other thought-provoking posts at her blog.
Politics & Government
There are two things a lady should know about politics and government: #1 How to Stay Out of Jail, and #2 How to Vote Responsibly.  Many thanks to Lydia for inviting me to share the depths of my insights as someone who has only been to the police station a couple times, only been to jail once, and has met 14 Presidential candidates so far this election.

    1. Good to hear. ;) It's important to understand how governments work (and how they should work).

  3. That was a great read! If I hadn't been a fan of your blog before, the hatred of okra - something we share - would have done it for me :)

  4. "If the dictator decides he hates your hair color one day, you could be sent to a gulag"

    funny enough, Kim Jong-Un apparently told all North Korean men that they had to have his haircut. Which is silly because his haircut looks awful. Why not make the rest of the country suffer too?

    1. Ha, right. That is pretty sad. I hate the things dictators do to crush individualism and the human spirit.

    2. Thanks :-) -- The muscle is better now but for a bit there, yikes. I sneezed and just dropped to my knees and the sneeze stopped half-way on its own. Never had that happen before.

      Hope you had a groovy fun weekend.

  10. Your comments brought to light sloppy thinking on my part. I tend to equate a republic with majority rule which is less than accurate. As usual you offer a fresh perspective for me, Bethany. I do hope we both stay out of jail and vote responsibly! Happy Thanksgiving! xx

  13. I will definitely check out C'est la Vie. I am very interested in politics myself and cannot understand how so many citizens don't seem to care about events beyond their local area and vote just the way "daddy" did without bothering to think about the current issues.

    1. Yes, I wish people cared more about the fate of our nation (and the world).
