As a woman

As a woman I am getting pretty damned tired of being considered a mere collection of body parts to be governed over by men in black robes, people, (including ignorant women who kowtow to men) who preach at me on the floor of the people's house about what I can do with my body and by priests who can't keep it in their pants. Most of the people who do the preaching wouldn't know an elbow from a uterus, claim to be "pro life", but couldn't care any less about the lives of women and in fact couldn't be more dismissive of the lives of children born into this world to parents who for whatever reason, did not want them and could not care for them.

I am a woman, fully grown with all the capabilities to reason, probably better than any man alive. If people don't like abortion, then don't have one. If you don't like Planned Parenthood, don't go and don't send your money to them. There are many things my government supports with which I disagree and yet, I am compelled to pay for them with my tax dollars. People need to grow up in this country.

I know this has been said before, but I am angry and needed to repeat it.

Newt Gringrich and marriage

Ii think I would love it and possibly fall over backwards if some debate questioner (so called journalist), actually opened the questioning of Newt Gingrich with:

Can we just cut out the sanctimonious baloney? You blast people for having the audacity to ask about your marriages and affairs, and out of your mouth at the same time you talk about he sanctity of marriage, all the while wanting to deny gay people who love each other the right to marry. What kind of hypocrite are you? And why would anyone NOT question your integrity after the way you divorced your first two wives and carried on an affair all while trying to impeach Bill Clinton for doing the same thing? And, how dare you blame the media for your many shortcomings. That may play well with Fox news(?) viewers, but the rest of the country is too intelligent to fall for your garbage. So the questions are: explain your hypocrisy, why is marriage between one man and three women more righteous than two men or two women who love each other and how does gay marriage threaten your marriage. And of course, are you having an affair now with possibly your fourth wife?

A question:

My husband received this from one of his conservative friends. If its true, I'm upset about it, but my feeling is that since the congress won't act to prevent GE and other companies from doing this, it isn't the Obama's fault, but rather the congress' Still, I know that many people have complained on this site about Jeff Immelt being on the Presiden't jobs commission. What to do?

Subject: GE moving stuff

General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from
Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing. In addition to moving the headquarters, the
company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers
and create six research centers. This is the same GE that made $5.1
billion in the United States last year, but paid no taxes-the same company
that employs more people overseas than it does in the United States.

So let me get this straight. President Obama appointed GE Chairman Jeff
Immelt to head his commission on job creation (job czar). Immelt is
supposed to help create jobs.

I guess the President forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed
to be creating those jobs.

If this doesn't show you the total lack of leadership of this President, I
don't know what does.

Do all your family and friends know this, be they Democrats, Republicans
or whatever other party they are affiliated with?!

Bumper sticker I would like to see

I would love to see a bumper sticker of the picture of Newt in a diaper (the one that was on the cover of the NY Daily News, IIRC) with the words "do we really need a whiner in the White House"? Does anyone think that's too nasty?
