This smears folks with ADD!

I'm especially close to a guy with ADD who has a PhD in theoretical physics fr a prestigious university. His ADD has been very successfully managed all his life with Ritalin. While in the 8th grade, his guidance counselor told me that his IQ test ranked in the .005 percentile, higher than in child in the history of the York County school system. Proud mom here.

This is why I'd rather not hear about the demented imbecile in the WH having ADD as a disqualifer.



Chances of that happening?

Can you imagine the non-ending prosecutions that should be happening?! And the costs?

I'm thinking of another thing too that I cannot put into print here. Over half of the elected officials in DC and their staffs are criminal. We're officially a banana republic.

Is there any possibility of real justice any more? They let the BFEE go without even a slap.

Watching Rachel. I don't have words for the summary of the political status she's presenting. I knew all of this but she's presented all of it together, back to back, and it's overwhelming. If something BIG doesn't change SOON, our democracy is over.


Misogyny has many roots but one main one...

This is a huge hot button with me and I believe it is rooted in our heritage of Middle Eastern religions.


"A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.”
1 Timothy 2:11-14

A wife is a man’s property: You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.
Exodus 20:17

Daughters can be bought and sold: If a man sells his daughter as a servant, she is not to go free as male servants do. Exodus 21: 7

A raped daughter can be sold to her rapist:
If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her.
Deuteronomy 22:28-29

No where is this attitude stronger than in our southern bible belt.



Not the knuckle-dragging rethugs I know.

They hate assertiveness in women, even some in their own party. Southern men in particular are misogynistic. And even the women bash other women who are successful!!
