Come Dance with Us

Two women.jpg

This week I am honored to be one of the hostesses for the Cotillion Ball. Joining me are: Cassandra of Villainous Company and Sissy of SISU.

Before the music begins, Kathy of Cake Eater Chronicles needs your support. Her six-year-old nephew James has Type I Diabetes Mellitus. For the uninitiated, that is Juvenile Diabetes, the really bad kind. Make no mistake, both kinds are bad. Please read her post The Walk To Cure Diabetes, then figure out how you can help. Thank you!

Now, get your dancing shoes, we have a number of lively and intelligent women to take us for a spin around the ballroom floor.

Pamela of Atlas Shrugs has been staying abreast of issues involving the lives of the subjugated and abused women of Islam. She discusses ten different articles. Her reports are sobering.

My dear friend Oddybobo of Boboblogger has given her thoughts regarding the recent terrorist attacks in London. She has written honestly and with great emotion. She is also on to something. She says we should take the fight to the fanatic's doorstep. I agree. Well said.

Juliette of Baldilocks is definitely a woman who speaks her mind. She has done an excellent analysis of the effect of the Supreme Court's ruling in Brown v. Board of Education [Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483 (1954)] on the Klu Klux Klan and the terrorism of today. If you read about politics and current events and are not reading her daily, you are missing out.

The lady of Are You Conservative announced her solidarity with our British friends and has graciously provided a beautiful flag combining our American flag with the Union Jack for any who wish to download it.

Janette of Common Sense Runs Wild asked the question: How Did I Miss this Headline? Thereafter, she provides an interesting discussion of the Muslim reaction to terrorism.

Dr. Sanity has written a fascinating piece on what the voices of appeasement will do after the London attacks. She advises we interpret the defense. This lady has just become a daily read.

The insightful Jane of Armies of Liberation asked the question: Is Yemen going to be another Taliban state? She then provided one viewpoint here. She is correct, that article "nails it."

Annika of Annika's Journal displays her ability to "think outside the box" and play the "devil's advocate" in her post: Let Me Put On My Leftie Hat For A Second...

Darleen of Darleen's Place has a gift for satire. She has featured a list of questions for the next SCOTUS nominee culled from what she described as "the patriotic, selfless groups of NARAL, NOW and People for the American Way."

Another of our intelligent and indepedent-thinking skeptics, Ith of Absinthe & Cookies says: "It's in TIME, so it must be true." She references an article which seeks to "define" moderates and conservatives on the Supreme Court. Indeed. I'm with Ith on this one.

The outspoken and delightful Sissy of SISU takes on a ride which began with "We will not be terrorized," as well as the death and resurrection of her 5 1/2 year old computer. From her politics to her choice of computers, she and I are like-minded.

Tammy of A Mom and Her Blog posted some very personal thoughts regarding the terror which struck London last week. Along with Tammy, I am grateful her son is home safe, too.

Crystal of Crystal Clear has a provocative post regarding free speech and problems with a commenter on her own blog in: Maybe on Your Front Lawn & Blog.

Raven of And Rightly So is a very direct and to the point lady. She is indignant at the antics of one Hitlary Clinton, and rightly so: ….MS. PIGGY shut the hell up

As most are aware, Carol of An American Housewife lost her husband just over a week ago. She has posted a Thank You "to everyone who sent in their comments of condolence, prayers and thoughts." She has a difficult time ahead of her, as noted here. Please keep Carol and her children in your thoughts and prayers.

God Bless.
