So then, your Jehovah Witness boss can tell them no adding blood?

And your Satan Worshipper boss, can bar you from Last Rites? And your Vampire boss can insist on drawing blood for his use?

This will not end well. They are pushing Obama to go single payer, for the protection of citizens. Watch all businesses allow bible study etc in their basement, and call themselves a church. Also watch new "Rugged opposed to all traditional medicine, for those employed under me", religion. Managers would be forced to attend.

Michael Steele confirmed my hypothesis.

On the Melissa H P show, the discussion was latino voters, and why they aint buying Repub Nuthin. And the first woman said Repubs drove them away, with antilatino campaigns. And Michael Steele said, it is all and only about the numbers. Then said that the impending Latino majority is driving all of it. They are trying to segregate states that are reactionary. Red States. Romney's depiction of self deportation.

I go one further, and say the other blood enemy of Repubs, women, and the surrounding reproductive choices debate, is all about the numbers. Their need for greater numbers of Caucasian births. And less brown births. Therefore, my article here.

Now I find, that Repubs are charging Obama with feticide. Classic projection. They say he is aborting black children. Also, they accuse him of promoting gendercide. Another projection of diminishing white MEN. And patriarchy.

As I have said for some time, its all about the demographics. All the insane social conservative issues boil down to the Caucasians, fear and loathing of losing white hegemony.

The Repub attacks against the poor, are also attacks against a majority brown community. Or, brown VOTERS.

The attacks against Student voting eligibility, are self explanatory.

It is almost worse, that they rail against things, using scapegoating, knowing full well it is about their white privilege. And crushing anything that threatens it.

PS. This puts the Israeli/Palestinian issue into perspective as well.

Extinguishment

is when the bell is rung intermittently, after ringing to announce food. Thus diminishing the tie in of bell to food, causing the dog to drool.

Tucker Carlson says Iran should be glassed. Ann Coulter says, why wont Obama pay attention to me? As she flung non sequitor insults at him. Jeb Bush laments how Republicans are so mean and emotive.

I said long ago, that Saul Alinsky references, calling Obama hitler and all the emotive drivel will peak too early, and leave Republicans without any motivational speech. Fear and Emotion can only be used appropriately. Or, it loses it's zing. This is the fear of those still capable of rationality.

When it is time to transition to the general campaigns, the Repub narratives will feel lackluster and droll. And fundamental and radical act just like Gulliani's noun,verb 9/11. Even the dog whistles will jam up.

Should Obama open up the oil reserves, the last dig left will be unusable by repubs.

I use the taunts to stoke anger, like everyone else. But they are doing real harm. I know several women on this forum, that are suffering psychic harm from the war on women. We must honor women for being our chum, and bait. Same with the poor and ill.

So, to honor the targets of Republican hate, we must place the Repubs heads on rhetorical poles. Use our anger to rid us of their influence. Otherwise, they will institute the hatreds they have telegraphed.

But, lets not forget, for the sake of our own sanities, that much of the hate speech, is designed to evoke a reaction from the reactionary. Not intended to be carried out. Should we take much of this to heart, it will incapacitate us, like the war on women has sidelined a few.

And try to remember, that Obama will anger us, with his inflections to the right. It is politics. War by other means. Often posturing, and not dignified.

Looks like Palin is thinking about running.

She is doubling down on her victimhood.

http://news.yahoo.com/palin-resignation-cant-anymore-015601847.html

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) In the final months before she resigned as Alaska's governor, Sarah Palin displayed growing frustration over deteriorating relationships with state lawmakers and outrage over ethics complaints that she felt frivolously targeted her and prompted her to write: "I can't take it anymore."

The details are included in more than 17,000 records released Thursday by state officials nearly 3 1/2 years after citizens and news organizations, including The Associated Press, first requested Palin's emails. The emails, most from Palin's final 10 months in office, illustrate what Palin has said all along: The intense scrutiny of her family and work was a financial and emotional drain that forced her to step down as governor.




{Even complaining bitterly about Todd having to WORK. }

She expressed anger at having to pay for her own defense, with a bill that at that point totaled more than $500,000, saying her husband had to go back to work on the North Slope because of it.

Are online ads becoming toxic to my computer?

The latest type of ads seem to cause faults in my browser. Requiring constant refresh, and BACK. They seem to ruin the screen, if I move the mouse, while their shit is loading.

Is my computer operating system hosed, or are the new ads pushing the limit?

Indisputable proof, that abstinence, is not the only 100% effective pregnancy prevention. Wear your

Jimmy, or should I say, Dickie.



Used inappropriately, it can still cause unwanted lust.



While most contraceptives are reversible, the Dickie is a lifelong impenetrant.

Failed State

Dont see much of this here, and think it is about time.

Social indicators

1.Demographic pressures: including the pressures deriving from high population density relative to food supply and other life-sustaining resources. The pressure from a population's settlement patterns and physical settings, including border disputes, ownership or occupancy of land, access to transportation outlets, control of religious or historical sites, and proximity to environmental hazards.[7]
2.Massive movement of refugees and internally displaced peoples: forced uprooting of large communities as a result of random or targeted violence and/or repression, causing food shortages, disease, lack of clean water, land competition, and turmoil that can spiral into larger humanitarian and security problems, both within and between countries.[8]
3.Legacy of vengeance-seeking group grievance: based on recent or past injustices, which could date back centuries. Including atrocities committed with impunity against communal groups and/or specific groups singled out by state authorities, or by dominant groups, for persecution or repression. Institutionalized political exclusion. Public scapegoating of groups believed to have acquired wealth, status or power as evidenced in the emergence of "hate" radio, pamphleteering and stereotypical or nationalistic political rhetoric.[9]
4.Chronic and sustained human flight: both the "brain drain" of professionals, intellectuals and political dissidents and voluntary emigration of "the middle class." Growth of exile/expatriate communities are also used as part of this indicator.[10]

Economic indicators

5.Uneven economic development along group lines: determined by group-based inequality, or perceived inequality, in education, jobs, and economic status. Also measured by group-based poverty levels, infant mortality rates, education levels.[11]
6.Sharp and/or severe economic decline: measured by a progressive economic decline of the society as a whole (using: per capita income, GNP, debt, child mortality rates, poverty levels, business failures.) A sudden drop in commodity prices, trade revenue, foreign investment or debt payments. Collapse or devaluation of the national currency and a growth of hidden economies, including the drug trade, smuggling, and capital flight. Failure of the state to pay salaries of government employees and armed forces or to meet other financial obligations to its citizens, such as pension payments.

Political indicators

7.Criminalization and/or delegitimisation of the state: endemic corruption or profiteering by ruling elites and resistance to transparency, accountability and political representation. Includes any widespread loss of popular confidence in state institutions and processes.[13]
8.Progressive deterioration of public services: a disappearance of basic state functions that serve the people, including failure to protect citizens from terrorism and violence and to provide essential services, such as health, education, sanitation, public transportation. Also using the state apparatus for agencies that serve the ruling elites, such as the security forces, presidential staff, central bank, diplomatic service, customs and collection agencies.[14]
9.Widespread violation of human rights: an emergence of authoritarian, dictatorial or military rule in which constitutional and democratic institutions and processes are suspended or manipulated. Outbreaks of politically inspired (as opposed to criminal) violence against innocent civilians. A rising number of political prisoners or dissidents who are denied due process consistent with international norms and practices. Any widespread abuse of legal, political and social rights, including those of individuals, groups or cultural institutions (e.g., harassment of the press, politicization of the judiciary, internal use of military for political ends, public repression of political opponents, religious or cultural persecution.)[15]
10.Security apparatus as "state within a state": an emergence of elite or praetorian guards that operate with impunity. Emergence of state-sponsored or state-supported private militias that terrorize political opponents, suspected "enemies," or civilians seen to be sympathetic to the opposition. An "army within an army" that serves the interests of the dominant military or political clique. Emergence of rival militias, guerilla forces or private armies in an armed struggle or protracted violent campaigns against state security forces.[16]
11.Rise of factionalised elites: a fragmentation of ruling elites and state institutions along group lines. Use of aggressive nationalistic rhetoric by ruling elites, especially destructive forms of communal irredentism or communal solidarity (e.g., "ethnic cleansing", "defending the faith".[17]
12.Intervention of other states or external factors: military or Paramilitary engagement in the internal affairs of the state at risk by outside armies, states, identity groups or entities that affect the internal balance of power or resolution of the conflict. Intervention by donors, especially if there is a tendency towards over-dependence on foreign aid or peacekeeping missions.

These indicators are present on all counts. It seems that Republicans have pushed for maximizing these for some time. Their roadmap seems to follow and promote these trends. It is unamerican, inhumane and will lead to unrest.

It seems to me, divide and conquer works on almost every group.

Developments in society, and that have been brewing for some time, are no longer sublimated. Add to this, a whole new governance. Chaos, and inability to find ONE purpose are to be expected.

Compassion is in short supply.

In my estimation, MEN have not had feminists backs. Even here in DU. It is time to support our sisters while they increase their sense of safety and belonging.

I feel helpless to help. It seems that groups, believing they need some protection, for good reason, war with each other. This resembles the animosity that Blacks and Jews feel at times for each other.

The feminist forum, seems not to trust their plight in the hands of the general jury system.

They dont even agree how to term themselves, adding things to FEMINIST,not that there is anything inherently wrong with that.

All I am trying to say is, we wish you well. We will help in any way we can. You should feel safe. And there are many men here that will take on the fights you face. As I have heard from my own lips, others, and echoed, we are in this together.

The growing pains shown here, are some of the same ones in the fledgling democracies we have invaded into existence. Democracy within forum is a new development. We didnt fight so hard when mods were appointed from the top.

Give some time, and most important, space to screw up, by mortals. Just because people care, dont make them infallible.

This dissention is exactly what our enemies count on, when they scapegoat women, or any other group. Let Roll.

Happy valentines day to my sisters.

I hope you find harmony soon in your group, however that is achieved amongst yourselves.

We all wish youall peace and unified purpose.

Isn't it time to teach us males, what you learned in 7th grade assembly?

Men havent a real clue, what is involved in being of the other sex. Hormonal therapies exist around cancer, chronic pain from endometriosis etc.

My high school girlfriend, had to go on the pill, and her mother was none too pleased.

Even disregarding the right of women to control their childbearing frequency, or at all, how males, in cloistered male communities, with vows of celibacy, often leading to bad effect, can dictate how women will be looked after, is bunk. It will not stand.

This disregard for womens safety, will split the religion. It is coming.

My father, layed in the hospital, dying, and was visited by a priest, as he was Catholic, as am I, according to baptism records. He required my father, who was facing open heart surgery, to repent from his using birth control. My father chose sanely, to tell the priest to get the hell outta here. In "78".

The Catholic religion, is over reaching. The power structure, is walking a tightrope, taking hubristic positions, against popular catholic opinion.

This whole subject will severely harm republicans, or the Catholic power structure will step back. They will lose women. IF they push this.

But we need an education about being a woman. Most of us are clueless.

Once they know that not allowing hormonal therapy will kill many women, and doom other women to constant pain, they will not continue.

But, again, we need educating.
