Jen here and I hope you are Round Up Ready (bad Monsanto joke I’M SORRY)
This week at OK4RJ, Sandra wrote a piece about something I literally think about every day and that is dispelling the hideous myth that incremental change and moderate solutions are “what’s best for red states”. Thanks but no [...]
Hey y’all, I’m alive! I’ve been awakened from my blog slumber! From my writer’s block cocoon, I’ve emerged a beautiful, side-eyeing butterfly!
Hi folks! We’re a bit shorthanded this week, so forgive us our late and shortened roundup.
This Week at OK4RJ:
Several of us attended the Civil Liberties and Public Policy conference last weekend. Pearl wrote a reflection on her experiences with blue staters at the flyover workshops. You can also check out
So let’s get the marriage news item out of the way now. This week SCOTUS heard challenges to Prop 8, a voter initiative which bans same sex marriage in California.

This week, on OK4RJ:

We made it through the year…even through some strange, racist-y parties based upon people misinterpreting history from a culture that is alive and vibrant.
Moving on, let’s countdown some terrible/awesome news from this year combined with appropriate GIFs for your viewing pleasure. HOLD ON TIGHT!
Awesomish but eyeroll inducing: Nancy Keenan, President of [...]
Hi friends, so glad to be rounding up for y’all this week. I’ve been stress-eating homemade pie and plain tortillas, and I can’t even begin to think about how many gifts I still need to buy. YOU’RE ALL GETTING MIX CD’S.
Thank god and all her friends that Patricia Spottedcrow is finally free. But when [...]
Why do you hate America so much? You made the eagle cry!
I dunno about you, but I’m super tired and still nursing my 4 beer hangover from Tuesday. So we all that Obama won, despite the far right being told it wouldn’t happen, Ham Rove shook like [...]
