Do you need any more reasons to not vote the republican ticket and to get those in office who support this action out ASAP?

It should be chilling that they think they can get away with this before an election. If they are willing to do this now, imagine what they would be wiling to do if they win the next election. It's just plain scary. How far right do they want to drag us, back to the Dark Ages?

[-] -3 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Yes it is insane to watch and then wonder how they figure to survive as a party. What is even stranger ( though I wonder what they are paid ) to see women speaking up for the party. They are either paid very well to betray themselves or are into bondage would be my guess.

Are they going China Syndrome?

Lots of fun and crazy news hitting the forum today.

Think we will hear reports of the criminals beginning to jump out of skyscraper windows? Or being found in a bath tub sans blood?

NYPD loses in court.

Jp under investigation blows own defence.

What next?

OH almost forgot thousands reported to have signed on to repeal corporate personhood.

What a day.

No sign of reigning in the troll beast I see. Well it just kind of makes me feel good all over seeing the signs that things are starting to go the wrong way for some of the greedy corrupt criminals.

HaH!

Why would we Rs listen to women on women's issues ?
We Rs wouldn't listen to the Big Branch Miners about mining ?
Or listen to teachers about teaching ?
Or Deepwater Horizon workers ?
WE don't need to listen - WE KNOW - just ask us

I, personally, don't. They have grossly underestimated independent women in general. They like to play to a non existent imaginary era. This is something that they will regret.

[-] -3 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I hope to see every woman and every man who loves them stand-up and spit in their face.

I do, too. I don't think that these people are in touch with Americans. I don't think they have a grasp on reality.

How could they possibly be meaning anything good? For anyone?

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21785) 2 years ago

They don't mean anything good. In fact, all of their policies are harmful to Americans.

[-] 1 points by rayolite (461) 2 years ago

Comprehensively correct.

I'm wondering if anyone can see how there is a relationship to women having to fight so hard to get a vote in 1920? A great mystery in some ways, beyond the surface of what we think we know.

Why were women treated as inferior in medieval time? A part of the same mystery.

Why are matriarch-el societies mostly found amongst indigenous people?

The below is still missing the proper perspective to answer the above but does provide some perspective.

http://www.ratical.org/many_worlds/6Nations/EoL/chp11.html The use of Indian women to provide an exemplar of feminist liberty continued into the nineteenth century. On May 16, 1914, only six years before the first national election in which women had the vote, Puck printed a line drawing of a group of Indian women observing Susan B. Anthony, Anne Howard Shaw and Elizabeth Cady Stanton leading a parade of women. (See figure 38.) A verse under the print read:

"Savagery to Civilization"

We, the women of the Iroquois Own the Land, the Lodge, the Children Ours is the right to adoption, life or death; Ours is the right to raise up and depose chiefs; Ours is the right to representation in all councils; Ours is the right to make and abrogate treaties; Ours is the supervision over domestic and foreign policies; Ours is the trusteeship of tribal property; Our lives are valued again as high as man's.

In the colonists current society we have this.

http://soldiersforjusticeandpeace.com/2010/09/army-col-denise-r-lind-denied-ltc-terry-lakin-constitutional-rights/

WHY?

I guarantee that no one can come up with the bottom line answer. WHY?

I hate being enigmatic, seriously, but its the only way with this information.

[-] 0 points by childseyes (85) 2 years ago

Girls and women are more easily hypnotized, that's why! I've got 2 years of psych, and there was some1960's research material brought in that showed case studies. I found it fascinating because there is very little alternative study except in Europe. I saved this scan.

http://tinypic.com/r/2hqgjsy/5

But what are the implications here? Really! We know both parties are controlled by one theatrical company, so why are we falling for the stupid show?

I wonder if it was a democrat that appointed that judge in Lakins case? If not then it looks like the repugs might know more about women than we think. Or, which ones will do their bidding and eliminating their influence.

[-] 1 points by rayolite (461) 2 years ago

OMG! Someone actually knew! A professor actually brought that into a university? Which university? Oh, maybe you better not answer, they'll lose their job:)

Did you know how much history this kind of persecution of women has? Would you believe that it starets officially in Babylon?

http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/ancient/hamcode.asp Charles F. Horne: The Code of Hammurabi: Introduction

[Hammurabi] was the ruler who chiefly established the greatness of Babylon, the world's first metropolis. Many relics of Hammurabi's reign ([1795-1750 BC]) have been preserved, and today we can study this remarkable King....as a wise law-giver in his celebrated code. . .
  1. If a "sister of a god" open a tavern, or enter a tavern to drink, then shall this woman be burned to death.

Or the Magna Carta.

http://www.constitution.org/eng/magnacar.htm 54. No one shall be arrested or imprisoned upon the appeal of a woman, for the death of any other than her husband.

Both of those sets of laws, one by an ancient King and the other forced upon and agreed to by the elites of England in 1215, have socially beneficial laws for women, but discrimanate in bizarre fashions.

In the US, slaves were freed in 1867, ' http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1072053/posts

but women were not given the vote until 1920. The elites of America were afraid that the unconscious spiritual forces, mostly Indigenous Americans would be voting through the colonizing women, so would not allow their vote until the Pagan people were subjugated.

As hard to find as the fact that girls and women are more hypnotizable is the fact that hypnosis on children under five years of age creates a deep trance basis and can have lifelong effects. Pagan peoples used this to expand the unconscious mind and create better and better oral histories within their uses of the circadian rhythm and sunworship. Some genes work better for this, hence the "bloodlines" aspect of royalty.

This is another premeditated attack on the American public at large. It should be a non-issue, it should be an accepted common sense fact that this should be an insurance coverage item included in and covered in all policies. Instead it is being used to sow divisiveness and to distract the population from other things that need to be addressed.

I just hope that all of those in office that are part of this effort get kicked in the balls.

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (21785) 2 years ago

Well, they have been and this is why so many of the old time Republicans are not running again or refused to get into the presidential run. There is even talk of them knowing that they have failures and wanting Jeb Bush to run for president. I think it is too late in the game. I think that they are going to have to implode and start over from scratch.

I am not crying.

It should be a lesson to all. You just can't shit this openly on the public and not expect to end up drowning in it.

Well, there is a pattern of capitalizing on areas that have been destabilized. I think that the most uncontrollable element is human nature. I think they may have mistakenly attempted to hedge bets when they shouldn't have.

Republicans are crypto-fascists, holding onto actually illegal media, to distort our lives. Women aree not the only targets. Too bad the Democrats don't really oppose the Republicans, in any practical ways, whatsoever. Examples: Zionism, drug war, wars in support of oil, Zionism, and the drug war, oil instead of biomass (including hemp).

[-] -3 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Truth and facts are what you will not look at, truth and facts are that the repubs in office are attacking women. Truth and facts are you are sadly miss-informed or are in denial or are in their pocket and like what they have been up to.

Well you are in a small minority.

Thank God for that.

Dan --

There’s no question about this.

The Republican War on Women is real, and it’s extremely dangerous.

If you agree, add your name to our petition: 1,000,000 strong against the Republican War on Women >>

House Republicans are pursuing the most comprehensive and radical assault on women’s health and reproductive freedom in our lifetime. Over just the last year, Republicans in Congress have voted repeatedly to limit women’s access to health care and reproductive services.

They voted to redefine rape in order to limit women’s access to health care. They held a panel on denying access to birth control coverage with five men and no women. They voted to give corporations the power to deny women access to contraception. And last year, they nearly shut down the government in an attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.

As you know, Planned Parenthood is a critical provider of preventive services to millions of women in need of health care, including cancer screening, breast exams and HIV testing. Mitt Romney has already said, “Planned Parenthood, we're gonna get rid of that.”

On the state level, numerous Republican governors have already forced through radical anti-women legislation.

We cannot back down in this fight. We must stand strong for women’s health. Will you join us?

Senate Republicans are trying to eliminate the Violence Against Women Act:

Dan

Add your voice and take a stand to protect women. Sign the petition. I wish I didn't have to write this, but we are days away from the latest in a long line of Republican attacks on women.

So far this year, Rush Limbaugh called a student women's health advocate a “slut” and Mitt Romney pledged to shut down Planned Parenthood.

And now Senate Republicans are trying to eliminate the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). House Republicans already voted to end it last month, and now a critical vote will be held in the Senate.

This vote is expected in only 5 days, and we need your help.

Click here to join Senate Democrats and EMILY’s List and demand Republicans vote to reauthorize VAWA.

https://dscc.org/salsa/track.jsp?v=2&c=hjmLA3%2BewN9gRIdMd%2BMKjZClofJsmSpJ

The Republican agenda is intent on defining women as second-class citizens. Twice before, VAWA was reauthorized with widespread, bipartisan support from both houses of Congress. But now, Republicans have grown so radical they won’t even commit to protecting women from violence.

We have to take a stand for VAWA. Join Senate Democrats and EMILY’s List -- demand Republicans reauthorize this law.

Click here to add your voice in support of women.

https://dscc.org/salsa/track.jsp?v=2&c=35OGwojD86Ztx6Ylt/oLGpClofJsmSpJ

Everybody should stand up in support of women. Join us now.

Thanks for all you do,

Now's a chance to tell repubs what you think of their war on women and generally also on the American people.

From Credo:

Who would you pick?

Dear Dan,

I need your two cents quickly. We're narrowing down the field for the final two Tea Party extremists the CREDO SuperPAC is going to defeat.

Who would you chose?

Tell us which Tea Party Republicans you want to hold accountable. Click here to submit your nomination.

In the most extreme congress in history, it's hard to pick just ten.

There are literally hundreds of guys who have voted to deny science, to wage the war on women, to abolish Medicare and Social Security!

We're excited that we've already got staff on the ground and campaign offices open to defeat eight of the most odious Tea Party Republicans: Joe Walsh (IL-08), Chip Cravaack (MN-08), Sean Duffy (WI-07), Dan Lungren (CA-07), Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-08), Frank Guinta (NH-01), and Steve King (IA-5) and of course Allen West (FL-22).

Who are we missing? Who is on your list? Where you would like to see us build two more accountability campaigns?

Tell us your nominations here: http://act.credoaction.com/r/?r=6877563&id=38788-4904244-ytBx9px&t=6

It wouldn't be a grassroots campaign without your input. Thanks for sharing,
