RANT: What happened to “I AM WOMAN. HEAR ME ROAR”?

You demand I buy your birth control, but you don’t even require your dates to buy you dinner before using it.

I have been beating the “young women of the world, have you all lost your minds?” drum for quite some time here at Haemet.  And I will continue to do so.  According to Fluke and the other lefties, the plight of women is so dire that they are left pleading before Congress to pay for the condoms and Pills that their lame-ass sex partners won’t pay for.  Could we humiliate young women any more?

*** end quote ***

We’ve already covered that the “23 old L3 young girl” is not what she appears to be. More “trojan horse”; than “poor student”.

Now let’s pick up this fellow good, but very crudely put, point.

Where is the pride? The self-reliance? The strength?

My paternal grandmother: married at ~13 on the docks in Germany, came steerage to the US, traveled the Oregon Trail, bore 16 children – three died in childbirth, her husband died in a construction accident while she was pregnant with her last — my Dad. Raised them all. I can only imagine what she’d say today about these whiney woman. “Pay for me to have sex.” Or even worse, “I’m powerless to control myself.” She’d have her infamous peach switch out in a heartbeat.

One advantage that the USA has over most of the rest of the world is that they oppress the female population. Barefoot and pregnant thinking. We, OTOH, have women that are powerhouses. Create wealth, Preform Bravely, and add immeasurably to the Commonweal. Not in the socialistic sense, but in that the fruits of their labor enrich everyone.

Let’s just take a quick look — Margaret Thatcher, Mother Teresa, Princess Diana, Madame Curie, Oprah, and on and on.

One of the appeals of Taylor Swift is that she empowers young girls. One of her videos shows here competing with a boy head to head in class. And, she wins. Unabashedly proud. She’s what we want more of. Fair competition makes everyone better.

We need all hands on deck for these struggles.

This “testimony” in front of Congress was so “disempowering” as to be embarrassing.

I have been helped, and helped others, many times in my life. But I can’t ever imagine begging for a handout for a recreational activity.

It disgusts me and it’s an insult to women everywhere. And, it’s an insult to the taxpayers.

I could understand a sick kid testifying that she like R&D into her condition as opposed to welfare / warfare items.

But this is unbelievable.

This is the biggest problem that the USA faces?

INTERESTING: Infringe on one right; infringe on them all

Police release media members after about 10 minutes

“Your First Amendment rights can be terminated if you’re creating a scene or whatever,” the officer said.

*** end quote ***

Sounds like the kops needs some sensitivity training.

“Released after ten minutes” sounds like some realized the big time screw up!

If they were trespassing, what is the “barbara streisand” about fail to press charges.

Sorry, but this stinks.

We expect that the Fourth Estate, The Press, will give us the facts. Their RIGHTS are as inviolable as ours. An attack on that RIGHT is an attack on all our rights.

What will that kop say to you if he doesn’t like your lack of deference to his exalted status? “Your Right to Life can be terminated any time I choose.”

INSPIRATIONAL: Why be anti-war?

The Horror! The Horror! Must-See War Films
by John W. Whitehead

*** begin quote ***

Saving Private Ryan: The Invasion Sequence (1998). The long opening sequence of this film is unlike anything in any other Hollywood depiction of war. It’s 25 minutes of barely comprehensible chaos and mutilation. Many veterans have stated that it is the most accurate re-creation of an amphibious assault. Credit for this sequence goes mainly to director of photography Janusz Kaminski – to be shared with editor Michael Kahn, sound designer Gary Rydstrom, writer Robert Rodat and director Steven Spielberg. Beyond this – i.e., the other 150 minutes of the film – Saving Private Ryan is a run-of-the-mill movie.

*** end quote ***

That opening sequence should convince anyone that war is the last option. The next time a politician or bureaucrat urges war, let them lead!

“We, The Sheeple” didn’t learn the lesson of Viet Nam, The Republic of.

55k of our best brightest warriors paid tuition. And ⅓ of the draft population went north or underground. It divided the nation and poisoned our souls.

When I hear them beat the War Drums for Syria, Iran, or whatever <insert name of favorite deity you favor> forsaken place they want our girls and boys to go die in, I get physically ill. In Fifth Grade, a Brother explained the “Just War” doctrine. He fought in the Pacific theater, and would say to us: “You JUST don’t understand. You know, but do not understand.” He was right. Many decades later, I know, but I don’t understand.

Dona Nobis Pacem!

GUNS: The right’s existence is all the reason needed!

Md. Gun Law Found Unconstitutional
March 5, 2012 1:29 PM

*** begin quote ***

States can channel the way their residents exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms, but because Maryland’s goal was to minimize the number of firearms carried outside homes by limiting the privilege to those who could demonstrate “good reason,” it had turned into a rationing system, infringing upon residents’ rights, U.S. District Judge Benson Everett Legg wrote.

“A citizen may not be required to offer a `good and substantial reason’ why he should be permitted to exercise his rights,” he wrote. “The right’s existence is all the reason he needs.”

*** end quote ***

I think New Jersey laws should fall. As with every city and state! It’s a shame that someone has to take on the Gooferment to get their rights.
