Do you Get Your Freak on In Your #SwaggerWagon ?

Wait! Have you heard that the latest technology in minivans makes it so that I can yell at my kids in the car without having to scream over the Kids Bop #71 millionth edition CD and the two of them out octaving one another to the tune of, “NO, YOU’RE THE worst sister ever!” What?

When You’re All Alone by Yourself, Do You like You?

When you’re all alone by yourself, do you like you? Do you? I never thought of it before.

We are all just a little bit vain and as much as we wish it didn’t, other people’s opinions matter when it’s perso... »

U.S. Immigration Policy has Obama Refusing Sanctuary and Sending Children to be Slaughtered

Immigration laws are very important to me. I am a Mexican-American Latina, first generation born in the United States. If my dad had not left all of his family and everything he knew behind, my story could be different. Immigration laws could mean life or death for me.
