About the Author


Helga Hayse

Helga Hayse educates people on the role that money plays in family relationships. Her latest book Money, Love & Legacy: Conversations That Matter Between Generations is about the urgency for adult children and their parents to open the intergenerational dialogue they need to have about financial, legal, emotional, medical and end-of-life issues before it’s too late. She recounts her personal experience with transforming the pain of her own unfinished business into regenerative legacy between herself and her parents.

Her previous book “Don’t Worry about a Thing, Dear” - Why Women Need Financial Intimacy helps women understand why education about marital finances is vital for their protection if marriage ends.

Iowa Judges Go Too Far

The situation was similar to what voters said to Congressional Senators and Representatives last week around the country. You're just not listening to us. We're tired of your arrogance... get out. Americans have spoken with their votes previously on several issues only to have state and federal judges reverse the decisions on a whim. So many of these reversals do not have Constitutional backing.

State judges are just not voted out very often which probably gives them a sense of tenure. It also apparently gives them a boldness that makes them feel they can interpret the law however they want. Iowa voters do not want the definition of marriage changed to accommodate gay demands. The three judges overturned that vote. Bad idea.

I would think that this will send a message to voters (and judges) in other states that deal with the same frustrations. "We the people" are in charge here. We saw the message get delivered loud and clear on November 2nd. This same message can be sent again on any state or federal election when the folks suddenly realize they hold the keys to the car.

The people have spoken... office holders beware.
