122. agreed, BlackVelvet
Which is one reason I want to barf when I hear Obama and his converts put down the fights of the 60's. They take for granted all that those fights accomplished and denigrate the fight itself. Sometimes, fighting is all you have left and you damn well better be prepared to do it if you want meaningful change. The entrenched interests don't give up easily or just because you say you want to reach out to them.

Where would we be now if the colonists didn't fight back or MLK didn't fight back or the suffragettes who were jailed and force fed didn't fight back? Our rights were hard won by women and some men who were beaten, ridiculed, and jailed.

Some young women think abortion is set in law and can never be changed. They think that the glass ceiling is a myth. They're deluded.
