About Me – Charlotte A. Weybright
I own an older home in the West Central historic district in Fort Wayne, Indiana, directly across from the St. Marys River. I have four grown sons and nine grandchildren - five granddaughters and four grandsons.
I enjoy working on my home and gardening, and I enjoy all types of crafts. I have my own library, now approaching 1,000 books. I am also a vegetarian and have been since 1990.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Indiana University and a Juris Doctorate from the Valparaiso University School of Law.
I enjoy the political scene with all of its passions and faults. Writing is one of my favorite activities, but it seems that I never have as much time as I would like to devote to the task.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Dan Coats is a whiner. We pay our elected officials to complete a job which includes up to the day they leave office. But that seems to be too much for Coats to bear, and, instead, he would rather have … Continue reading
Marlin Stutzman couldn’t bring himself to vote for an international effort to end violence against women around the world by working to protect girls in developing countries through the prevention of child marriage. What kind of mindset drove 157 Republicans … Continue reading
The quarterly candidate financial reports are out, and, according to the FEC reports, Marlin has had no trouble raking in money from PACs and other special interests. As of September 30, 2010, Stutzman’s fund raising looks like this: Total Receipts: … Continue reading
Rumor has it that the powers that be have advised Stutzman to lay low because he has the election “in the bag.” Maybe that’s why Stutzman makes half-hearted appearances at functions and leaves before they conclude. Or why he has … Continue reading
Marlin Stutzman has a credibility problem. On one hand, he decries subsidies and states, “I think it’s time to get rid of farm subsidies.” “The subsidies only manipulate the market.” But on the other hand, he accepts subsidies for his … Continue reading
As we morph into a society increasingly obsessed with tracking its members and assembling as much personal private data as possible in mega-databases, I would never have dreamed that my Homestead Exemption would become a vehicle to gather personal data. … Continue reading
I read everyday about the Indiana budget and how education, salaries, social programs, etc. must be trimmed in order to ward off the state’s financial problems. So what does the Little Napoleon do? Here is the release in the Journal-Gazette: … Continue reading
The angst over ACORN has led to introduced legislation that – whoops – well sweeps in such entities as military contractors and could conceivably lead to defunding of some of the military-industrial giants. Representative John Boehner, the ever-omnipotent partisan pol … Continue reading
