Author Says: My Book Is A
Lie & I’m A Head Case

American Conservative, by Rod Dreher

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 1/11/2013 6:13:38 PM

An update on the Feminist & The Cowboy story, one that deserves its own separate post. This is from author Alisa Valdes’s blog. A week after her book was published, here she is saying that the Cowboy is a roaring turdbucket who dumped her, and the book is a disaster that it will lead women astray. Excerpts: I believe very firmly that the truth is the only currency a writer has, and that if there is any hope of redeeming this book and making it meaningful it lies in the full story of my relationship

Comments:
We´ve heard from her before - google ´Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez´ and ´resignation letter.´

Let´s shed a little more light on this - FTA: "The book was true, when I wrote it. But life changed. I didn’t try to fool anyone, or to exploit anything. Rather, I believed in a man who didn’t deserve it. I fell for the incredible charm and manipulations such men are capable of. I failed to see what women who are wiser than I was are clearly seeing as they read my book — that this man was “a jerk,” as one reviewer said."

Yes, it takes time for a manuscript to become a book and during that time she apparently woke up and realized that her cowboy was wearing a black hat. So glad I wasn´t tempted to waste my time on the book!

The publisher should move the book from the non-fiction shelf to the fiction shelf.

Valdes whines a lot, doesn´t she?

Oprah refused to tout any of Alisa´s books and Alisa screamed that Oprah was raaaaaacist (against Latinas) on her blog for not doing that for her.

The Left: Grocer Trader Joe´s has pulled out of a planned expansion to a poor area in Portland, Ore., after a community organizing group objected. The organizers can now take a bow for the neighborhood´s loss. Hectoring the private chain with racially tinged language, wealthy poverty-racketeers from a foundation-funded group called the Portland African American Leadership Forum claimed that a $2.4 million store on a vacant lot in a run-down part of northeast Portland would gentrify the area, driving up retail prices and driving out the local black community. "This is a people´s movement for African Americans and other communities for self-determination,"

Venezuela´s Maduro: "We´ll

"We will expropriate whatever needs to be expropriated," Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro cautioned in reference to the new Law of Costs and Fair Prices. Concomitantly, the president urged private companies to comply with the new law. His statements came during the commemoration of the coup attempt of February 4, 1992. The Venezuelan president threatened to take "the most radical measures to protect our people´s economy." "I make an appeal to the country economic sectors, for work and self-regulation of commodities and prices. You have time until next Monday; otherwise, I will take the most radical measures," Maduro specified.

Politics: California Gov. Jerry Brown has blasted as "unwelcome and divisive" a desperately needed drought-relief bill in Congress that will likely win in the House soon. That´s rich coming from a man who´s done nothing. In case you haven´t heard, the drought that has plagued California´s southwest Central Valley, one of the great breadbaskets of the nation with $26 billion in production, is still going on. Extended for three years now, the nation´s prized fruits and vegetables — its vineyards, its almond, orange and peach groves, its vegetable fields — are all drier, dustier-than-ever wastelands.

Venezuela Goes from Bad to Worse

Not only Nicolás Maduro has inherited the presidential chair, but has he the heavy economic legacy from Hugo Chávez. With two devaluations of the bolivar currency this year and a third looming in the horizon, the battered economy of Venezuela is starting to put the president of the Republic against the wall. It has all been as if hunger and an urge to eat had had become accomplices to create this situation. By forcing businesses to lower their prices, without a criterion of rationality and in a gesture of obscene demagogy, the Government recently gave the country’s commercial establishments a surprise

During a Google Hangout session on Friday, fry cook Darnell Summers told President Obama that his hours were cut due to the Affordable Care Act. “We were broken down to part time to avoid paying health insurance,” he said. Summers explained that he makes $7.25 an hour and has been on strike four times seeking a wage increase. “We can’t survive, it’s not livin’,” he said. The president responded by urging states to increase the minimum wage. “I am working to encourage states, governors, mayors, state legislators to raise their own minimum wage,” Obama said. “Obviously, the way to reach

ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA — Jose Calderon, 42, of Sterling, Virginia, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for engaging in a bribery scheme that resulted in the issuance of driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. Dana J. Boente, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, and Valerie Parlave, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, made the announcement after sentencing by United States District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema. “Schemes such as this, trading cash for DMV documents, undermine the enforcement of our immigration laws and potentially threaten public safety,” said

Shhh. The President Is Sleeping

President Barack Obama is out of gas. Pooped out. Gone fishing. Or rather, golfing. He’s just not that into it anymore. The republic is safe from any further vast left-wing legislative prescriptions for our ills. But Obama’s increasing job fatigue is, paradoxically, cause for serious concern. While he sits back, aides in the White House and in the agencies are busy enacting a stealth agenda of rules and regulations. And on the world stage, Washington’s withdrawal threatens national security. The president on display at Tuesday’s State of the Union is one who has shrunk from the pretension of becoming a president on

Argentina´s Luck Is Finally Running Out

Argentina’s luck is finally starting to run out. It devalued its currency by 15 percent last week, marking the beginning of a possible economic crisis of the kind Argentina has become known for. Argentina’s problem is that it has followed the logic of populism for more than a decade and President Cristina Kirchner is showing no interest in changing course. In the 1990s Argentina combined far-reaching but sometimes flawed market-reforms with irresponsible fiscal policies, culminating in its 2002 default on $81 billion in debt—the largest sovereign default in history. The country delinked its currency from the dollar, experienced a severe economic

Education: What does it take to turn an ordinary school official into a red-star commissar remorselessly yanking lunches from hungry kids and tossing them in the trash? Try an anti-school choice union and a big bureaucracy. It actually happened at Uintah Elementary School in the Salt Lake City school district. The story from the embattled school administrators is that a "child nutrition manager" sought to correct the arrears of parents´ payments to their subsidized lunch program ($2.50 a day) and, after giving a day´s notice, had food service workers yank the trays of served food right out of the children´s little

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro took part in the opening of the Hugo Chávez Museum located in San Carlos de la Cabaña fortress, Havana. The ceremony was held within the framework of the Second Presidential Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, (Celac).

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Mayor Bill de Blasio may have harshly criticized New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for his administration’s recent “bridgegate” scandal, but for one night, at least, it was all water under the bridge. The pair kicked off this weekend’s Super Bowl festivities with a joint appearance in Jersey City last night. And if Mr. de Blasio had any lingering harsh feelings about the alleged traffic shutdown over the George Washington Bridge, he certainly didn’t show it. Instead, the bipartisan pair looked like old friends as they appeared on stage together to count down to a fireworks display at the

CHILPANCINGO, Mexico – Hundreds of armed men belonging to community self-defense groups occupied eight small towns near Chilpancingo, capital of the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, and detained a dozen suspected extortionists, a spokesperson for the vigilantes said. The action was taken due to the “federal government’s poor response” in ensuring the security of the state’s inhabitants, Gonzalo Torres, a coordinator of the Citizen Safety and Justice System, or SSyJC, organization, said Friday. The vigilantes said they seized control of the towns, all part of the municipality of Chilpancingo, because their residents are the victims of criminal gangs that extort and kidnap

The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of full-time workers by 2.5 million over the next decade. That is mostly a good thing, a liberating result of the law. Of course, Republicans immediately tried to brand the findings as “devastating” and stark evidence of President Obama’s health care reform as a failure and a job killer. It is no such thing. (SNIP) The new law will free people, young and old, to pursue careers or retirement without having to worry about health coverage.

Just days away from the administration’s deadline to extend the nation’s borrowing authority, Speaker John A. Boehner told House Republicans he sees no reason to pick a fight they cannot win on the issue. “There’s no sense picking a fight we can’t win,” the Ohio Republican told members in a private conference meeting, according to sources in the room. Leadership has been looking for a plan that could draw Republican support for a debt limit increase, and Boehner urged his members to coalesce around a plan. If they do not, he warned, the Senate could move first and tack a provision to

The Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, became law almost four years ago. It became operational last Oct. 1. Yesterday, Feb. 4, 2014, the ACA may well have been dealt its death blow. The Congressional Budget Office released a major study of the government’s budget and its effect on the overall economy over the next 10 years. In dull bureaucratic language, it delivers a devastating analysis of the inefficiencies, ineffectualities and problematic social costs of ObamaCare. The one-two punch: Virtually as many Americans will lack health coverage in 10 years as before the law was passed — but 2 million fewer

President Obama, outlining his push Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet access to more U.S. schools, said Americans should demand the same level of technology in learning facilities as they do in coffee shops. “In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools,” Obama said in Adelphi, Md., highlighting $750 million in new commitments from private companies to put digital learning labs in schools. Under his plan, the Federal Communications Commission will also spend $2 billion to connect 20 million students to wireless technologies.

Seven seconds of total silence. The nation´s top intelligence officials have answered the question countless times over the past year and a half, but they seemed stumped during a House hearing Tuesday when a Florida congressman asked them one more time: "Can anybody at the table tell us when somebody will be held responsible for the murders in Benghazi?" For seven seconds, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA director John Brennan, Defense Intelligence Agency director Michael Flynn, National Counterterrorism Center director Matt Olsen and FBI director James Comey sat quietly – each one seemingly waiting for one of the others to

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said the Congressional Budget Office report that shows Obamacare will make the labor force lose 2.3 million full-time workers by 2021 is positive because it lets Americans be “free agents.” “We have the CBO report, which rightfully says, that people shouldn’t have job lock. If they — we live in a country where there should be free agency. People can do what they want,” Reid told reporters outside of a close policy luncheon. “And what they’re saying here is — and the fact checkers have already done this — the Republicans talk about losing

During last weekend´s Meet the Press, Gregory insisted that Obama just isn´t getting enough credit for an economy that Gregory feels is "getting better." Paul Bedard calls Gregory´s claim the "mainstream media scream" of the week. During the February 2 broadcast, Gregory wondered why Americans just can´t grasp Obama´s great success.

CVS Caremark is kicking the habit of selling tobacco products at its more than 7,600 drugstores nationwide. The nation’s second-largest drugstore chain says it will phase out cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco by Oct. 1 as it continues to focus more on health care. CVS Caremark Corp. and other major drugstore chains have been adding clinics to their stores for several years. Their pharmacists deliver flu shots and other immunizations, and their clinics also have been expanding the care they deliver.
