About The Wifely Person

I am a widow, a mother, a mother-in-law, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, and I guess since I have a grandpuppy, that makes me a grandbitch. I have survived it all and I'm still standing. Ziggy would be proud. I know I am. For the record...and to clear up a bunch of emails, I live in the Minnesota 5th District, and John Kline is my arch-conservative congressdrone. It used to be Betty McCollum (yay!) but we were gerrymandered (boo hiss!) Write to me at: thewifelyperson AT gmail.com And you can like me on Facebook now, too - just put THE WIFELY PERSON in your search box!

So-Far-Right-It’s-Wrong Kinda Thinking

A couple of really scary things happened this week. They’re not Freddie Krueger scary, more like Michele Bachmann scary in the worst sense of her Tea Party mentality. It’s the kind of scary that results in people talking about slippery … Continue reading
