Social Conservatism

I believe the definition of marriage is one man with one woman. I agree with the Republican National Committee’s Platform that states, “the well-being of children is best accomplished in the environment of the home, nurtured by their mother and father anchored by the bonds of marriage.” My commitment to social conservatism includes the fundamental…

Same-Gender Marriage

I believe that marriage should be exclusively between one man and one woman. I believe that marriage was created by God as sacred and ordained it since the beginning of civilization. I believe that children benefit most from having both a Mom and a Dad. In New York State, same-gender “marriage” advocates are intolerant of…

On Republicanism

Yvette with former 44th Assembly District Leader, Susan Cleary, and State Senator Marty GoldenWhat does it matter if a political party wins an election but loses its principles, loses its soul, loses its foundations. That was the phrase that rolled around my head when I declared my candidacy for State Assembly. I hear so often…

Education Reform

I believe school choice for children stuck in poorly performing public schools is a civil rights issue. The achievement gap between those that can afford alternate educational opportunities and those children in our public school system is ever widening.

While electronics that deal with such important factors as lighting, heating…

True Blood is surprisingly good

Honestly, I was a bit wary of this show (based on the novel “Dead before Dark” by: Charlaine Harris), but I just finished watching all four episodes on my tivo and I really enjoyed it. I had this predetermined idea that the show was just going to be a senseless bloodbath with random nude women…

When you poke Russell Crowe in his tummy he goes, “Ooohoohoo!”

Russell Crowe apparently hates being a Pillsberry Dough Boy look alive. According to IMDB, he wants to stay away from roles that make him gain weight, like his recent role in the movie Body of Lies: Crowe was so disgusted with his appearance, he will now think twice about accepting a similar role again. He…

Nick and Norah: An Infinite Review

Attention Hollywood: Michael Cera and Kat Dennings have arrived. Please take note. Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist first and foremost is not the film that you expected it to and for 90% of the audience its not the film that they want it to be. This is not a Judd Apatow film, nor it is…
