Hey, Sharron Angle, I have a couple of questions.
You were quoted as saying:

"Right now, we say in a traditional home one parent stays home with the children and the other provides the financial support for that family," she said. "That is the acceptable and right thing to do. If we begin to expand that, not only do we dilute the resources that are available, we begin to dilute things like health care, retirement, all the things offered to families that help them be a family."


For 25 years you worked as an educator in the fields of public and private education. As well, you held your first elected position 20 years ago and continued to work in government for an additional 16 years.

My questions are these: 1) Was your husband the one parent who stayed home all those years? 2) If he was also employed during those years, does that make you a hypocrite to your own ideal?

1. I have several questions for her, including: what in the HELL do you mean by this:
"That is the acceptable and right thing to do. If we begin to expand that, not only do we dilute the resources that are available, we begin to dilute things like health care, retirement, all the things offered to families that help them be a family."


and, "what kind of god do you have that would have a woman get raped and pregnant as part of his (and naturally, it would be a him) plan. is he such an idiot he cannot figure out another plan?

I REALLLLLLY do not like your god, you brainless twit, and I don't like you, either.

May you know all the pain and suffering you would wish upon others in your narrow, ignorant, bigoted worldview.

2. I have a question or two as well Sharron Angle...
Hey Sharron Angle, if your 12 year old daughter was raped and became pregnant would you FORCE her to carry that fetus to birth?. Would you really? Would you destroy her life by telling her God wanted this to happen to her?

Or what if your husband raped her and she became pregnant? Would you prevent her from getting an abortion forcing her to live with the nightmare of being raped by her father for the rest of her life and have a child to always remind her of that evil and vile attack?

And Sharron, how can you speak for God when you have no idea what Jesus' teachings were? It's obvious you consider everything Jesus stood for to be a left wing, socialist, and evil so how can you dare suggest YOU can speak for what God would want to do?

Last question Sharron Angle, "Why do you hate people so much?"

Sharron Angle, you are evil. You worship no god. You are like the rest of the soulless mutants in the right wing who will do and say anything to get elected. You are using the typical right wing tactic of using hatred, anger, racism and fear to dupe ignorant people into voting for you. You are incapable of shame, compassion or empathy. You lack any positive human trait and are certainly are incapable of leading anyone except to hell, where you and people who think like you belong...

5. And I held back because this is a public forum :)
Remember when Bernard Shaw asked Michael Dukakis during a debate with Bush-Duh-First "What would you do if your wife Kitty was raped". Questions like that aren't asked of leaders any more. But they should be. All of the politicians who want to impose their nightmares on others should be asked if they would abide by the same laws themselves.

BTW, In the Dukakis example above the situation was completely different. The commentator was trying to gig Dukakis.

6. If I hear her say one more time "this isn't about me, this is about
Harry Reid" I'm going to pull my hair out. No, Sharon, this IS about you and your vile ideas.

7. Why is she even running for
office if she feels that way. She should stay home and be a housewife.

This isn't to slam housewives, just Angle.

8. I got to be a stay at home mom.
The entire time I was enraged that the culture was so hostile to working moms.

Now that I'm divorced, I wonder if I made the right choice, as my social security payout is permanently reduced.

I also hate it that sometimes people seem to want to promote a war between at home moms and moms who work. The two groups are NOT in opposition to each other. They are just two different groups. Parents, regardless of gender or other attributes, need a lot of support.
