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.

No more traditional democracy for Citigroup. The omnipresent international financial conglomerate with operations in consumer, corporate, and investment banking and insurance has decided that it is pretty pleased with progress toward a neatly done plutocratic society. Democracy can be … Continue reading
A recently released poll by American Republican Viewpoint, a firm that touts itself as a “leading Republican polling firm”, came up with what could be seen as an expected result – Stutzman – gasp, gasp – is ahead in the … Continue reading
In a convulsion of activisim, the Republican Supreme Court clan has handed an astonishing victory to big corporate America. In a 5-4 decision, all Republican appointees to the Supreme Court came squarely down on the side of big business by … Continue reading
After eight years of disastrous deficit policies – six of those years under complete Republican domination – Republicans have now decided that party unity trumps all else – hey, they’ve got their groove on again. They have turned into a … Continue reading
I have listened with fascination and outright astonishment over the past few weeks to Republican naysayers – right, middle, and left – scream about the evils of concentrating power by electing sufficient numbers to give one party – the Democrats … Continue reading
Thursday night’s debate triggered an incessant nattering about Obama’s use of the phrase “spread the wealth.” I find it interesting how Republicans distort the phrase and how conveniently they overlook the fact that when tax breaks are given to the … Continue reading
In the latest round of nonsensical twaddle in this year’s presidential election, voters are more focused on Sarah Palin’s glasses than on answers to real issues. One headline shouts, “Sarah Palin’s Much-in-demand Glasses Bring Sexy Back.” Wow, way to demean … Continue reading
