    That Eisenhower was the only Republican she ever voted for President. And that was a rebellion vote as her Dad told her to vote for Stevenson (she thought).

    Also, that after the birth of her third child, she was experiencing severe menstrual cramps and bleeding and was prescribed BC, without her knowledge. Her neighbor, whose husband was a medical rep informed her that those were BC pills and what was she, as a practicing Catholic, doing with BC? She confronted her doctor, and he asked,"Are you feeling better? Would you have taken them if you knew?" I, once again, pointed out the utility of the 'helpful/not helpful' reality test.

    Then she really floored me. "I will vote for Obama again, but I don't agree with him wanting to take over healthcare and undermine religious freedom". Whaaaa?

    I suspect she's getting quite a load of bunkum from her church pals on this. No other real explanation, really.

    I AM the Chosen One, according to my emails, so listen up!
