Rogue Justice Book Review

Rogue Justice: The Making of the Security State

Regardless of political views, I think we can all agree that the lives lost on 9/11 were more than a tragedy! This book shadows the constitution and privacy, yet somehow inter tangles it all as one and shows the reader the difference in how things have been and should be.

This is a book that shares many details with the reader and is easy to follow without any "mumbo jumbo" in legal terms that the average reader can't follow or understand. I'd recommend it to anybody!

"The day after September 11, President Bush tasked the Attorney General with preventing another terrorist attack on the United States. From that day forward, the Bush administration turned to the Department of Justice to give its imprimatur to activities that had previously been unthinkable—from the NSA's spying on US citizens to indefinite detention to torture. Many of these activities were secretly authorized, others done in the light of day. 

When President Obama took office, many observers expected a reversal of these encroachments upon civil liberties and justice, but the new administration found the rogue policies to be deeply entrenched, and, at times, worth preserving. Obama ramped up targeted killings, held fast to aggressive surveillance policies, and fell short on bringing reform to detention and interrogation.

How did America veer so far from its founding principles of justice? Rogue Justice connects the dots for the first time—from the Patriot Act to today’s military commissions, from terrorism prosecutions to intelligence priorities, from the ACLU’s activism to Edward Snowden’s revelations. And it poses a stark question: will the American justice system ever recover from the compromises it made for the war on terror?

Riveting and deeply reported, Rogue Justice could only have been written by Karen Greenberg, one of this country’s top experts on Guantánamo, torture, and terrorism, with a deep knowledge of both the Bush and Obama administrations. Now she brings to life the full story of law and policy after 9/11, introducing us to the key players and events, showing that time and again, when liberty and security have clashed, justice has been the victim."

The Great Chattanooga Bicycle Race Book Review

This blog has affiliate links and sponsored articles. Check out my disclosure policy for more details. 


The Great Chattanooga Bicycle Race















The Great Chattanooga is a book written by Mike H. Mizrahi. I found it very enjoyable to read and read it quickly! As a woman, reading a book about a woman's desire for freedom and independence in a time when women were viewed as "the lesser" was liberating.

Chattanooga society is turned upside down as a young woman has the audacity to ride a bicycle–in bloomers!
It’s 1895. Anna Gaines, 19, struggles to conquer her insecurities after a horrible fall years ago from her beloved horse, Longstreet. On a visit with her aunt in Brooklyn, she’s drawn to the new pastime of bicycling. But back at home, cycling is a scandalous sport for a proper lady. Southern women did not engage in activities meant for men.
Anna has her eye on Peter Sawyer, president of the Cycling Club. As community outrage grows, an unexpected turn of events pits Anna against Peter in a race between the sexes.
Will Anna prove that women deserve the same right as men to ride “the wheel?” Will she choose to live a quiet, traditional life of a housewife and mother? Or will she pursue college and become one of the “new women” emerging into the twentieth century on the seat of a bicycle? What will become of the spark between Anna and Peter?
Faith, patience, and courage help Anna to become the person she was meant to be.

I would recommend this book to anybody! It's wonderful!




Finding Someone Online (Dating In The UK)

This blog has affiliate links and sponsored articles. Check out my disclosure policy for more details. 

Not everyone is lucky enough to meet that one person who understands them and sometimes cannot find them on their own. Some people depend on dating sites to help them with that. If you are in the UK, there is an adult dating site that can help you do just that! 

You can find profiles of people looking for the same things as you. It gives you the chance to see if someone is looking for more than what you want or less and you have the chance to meet up with them if they are a match for you!

Online platforms have become a more common way of finding someone/something that you want with the convenience of doing it from your home. Look at it as a way of putting you in touch with someone that you wouldn't otherwise have known. 

Meeting someone doesn't have to be overwhelming, it should be a smooth and fun process. You can sit back, check out profiles and decide what works for you and who you are interested in. No strings attached!

If you're sitting at home on a Friday or Saturday night, why not make it fun? Don't sit home alone, go out and enjoy it! If you're lonely, change that! It can be that simple. 

You deserve a fun night out and you don't need to do it alone! Find someone that fits your needs and go from there. Don't stress, enjoy the fun of choosing first and then look forward to the night!

There's nothing worse than wanting to do something and having no one to do it with. There's plenty of people out there waiting to meet you. The nice part about the online process is you can read all about them first so you are sure to have a fun night. Nobody likes a dud! So, what are you waiting for? If you are looking for fun, stop! Look for that fun person instead.

ökocat Cat Litter from Healthy Pet




For the past week or so I have switched out the cat litter to this ökocat Natural Cat Litter by Healthy Pet and I must say I'm happy! 

A clumping litter made of reclaimed timber and lumber materials. I love that it's good for the planet and my cats! There isn't any harsh chemicals or dyes & is formulated to control odors for up to 7 days. 

It has a high absorbency yet the pellets are firm on the outside & soft on inside. It's also biodegradable!



This really did work well on odor control & absorbed the urine pretty well! It's also dust free which I love! The cats took to it right away and didn't have any issues with not wanting to use it.




I would recommend this to anybody looking for a good way to control odor while keeping a low impact on the environment. You can order directly from Chewy.com for quick delivery right to your door!
