Seems like Richard beat me to the punch here, but I wanted to formally announce our two new Pundits: Opie and KarateG. Both Opie and KarateG have been with Yabberz almost from the beginning since 2015, and we are so grateful for their contributions to the site. Opie and KarateG are strong and dynamic voices to the Resistance Movement. Their work and personalities have made Yabberz more interesting, thought-provoking, and engaging. Please help me welcome Opie and KarateG to the Pundit Circle.
Below is some information on Opie and KarateG in their own voices:
I have written for Professional Journals and have done grant writing to get start up funds for non profit health facilities for disabled adults in communities that didn't have them, and was successful in getting them built, staffed and operating in 5 different counties.
I have five remarkable grown children who now have loving families of their own.
I retired early from social justice programs, mental health, hospital health, and private practice, and I have owned and managed an Antique business I am considered liberal-minded; I care deeply about social issues, and I belong to no religion.
I love music, dance, books, good food, people watching, and antiques - including sculptures, paintings and misc. everyday items from the past; and I enjoy my family, my man, walks along the river, and my little fur ball - Abby.
I am active, politically and physically. I lean left socially, especially where civil rights and human rights are concerned. However, fiscal responsibility and frugality appeal to me as well. Fighting for those who remain voiceless or under-represented in our society is a call to action for me. I am a proud Feminist who believes in the power of women to help lead our country, and I fight for equality when it is not afforded to women.
I am a wife and a mother, who believes strongly in education to create a secure future for our children. I love the American spirit of independence, but also believe strongly in helping those who cannot support themselves, especially the elderly, children and those who are disabled.
Give me a good discussion, whether I agree or not, and I will listen to your views and share ideas. My philosophy is that to learn something new, one must first listen.
Congratulation Ladies to the Pundit Circle.
