Wedding_ringsHaving read Steven Crowder’s (@scrowder on twitter) latest controversial column on the benefits of getting married, I feel compelled to voice my opinion as a single, unmarried conservative woman.

The non-marital cohabiting trend seems to have grown more popular in the past decade than wearing tights as pants, and, similarly, leaves bystanders trying not to ask the obvious, awkward questions:

“Oh, nice to meet your…husband? brother?”
“When’s the wedding?! Er…oh…”
“You DO know your butt crack is clearly visible through those things, right?”

Okay, so that last one was for the tights-as-pants crowd (seriously though, ladies…tights aren’t pants). Either way, I’d rather live without the awkward questions.

Quite frankly, when I see couples living together without being married, a phrase comes to mind: “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?” Sure, plenty of these couples end up getting married, but only after getting a little…

Drudge pulled this out from the way back machine. But this should be a positive for Mitt Romney. The voters he is trying to win over are more likely the vote for a Mormon anyway.

Here is Ann Coulter’s piece, “What’s Their Problem with Romney?”

The theme of Ann Coulter’s piece is that Romney is the “Outsider” and not a part of the “GOP Establishment”. I will not argue against the “Outsider” view, but Romney not being a part of the “GOP Establishment” is very debatable.

I think Coulter has a very different definition of “GOP Establishment” than most folks in the country.

I think Ben Howe has a good point that conservatives are sucking at winning the argument of income taxes. He has some ideas of how to convince folks not paying income taxes that taxes are bad. Not sure I buy it, but we should try and walk a mile in the “47%”‘s shoes. People are acting in their self interest as they know it. Show them the error of their ways.

We are Losing the Tax Debate Even Though We’re Right

For names on the new website. I suggest Liberty Cantina (taking from JD). Got any other ideas. Want to place to be inviting, open setup, tends to have more liberty loving folks, but to have a variety of opinions, views, personal life experiences, personalities, and skill sets. Give me ideas in the comments.

In case there is a Brokered convention, At this point, the polls say Christie is the popular choice vs Palin, Jeb Bush, Daniels. Christie is a moderate but he would be my choice. He has a backbone and will defend the 70% of stuff I agree with him on with 100% effort. Yes, I am a RINO.
