Attitude Reflects Leadership- Moving Forward

Attitude Reflects Leadership   The election is over, the results are in and the people have spoken. President Obama won the electoral vote by a distinct margin as well as the popular vote- although, admittedly by a lesser margin. The people also made their voices heard in several key Senate races, rejecting the misogynistic, xenophobic attitudes of the Todd Akins and Joe Walsh’s of the ...


Reality Bites – Lessons From November 6th

Democrats had an amazing election night, so much so one would think Republicans would be doing some serious soul searching. Instead what are we hearing? • We lost our momentum due to Sandy • Our country is made up of more “takers” than “makers” with those takers just wanting free stuff. • We weren’t anti-abortion enough • The liberal media is in the bag for Obama • D...


a cranky theory on Paul Ryan’s jobs plan, and why I have trouble sleeping at night

  Reflecting on the religion/abortion question from the VP debate, Ryan said that (flip flop alert!) he WOULD allow abortion in cases of rape, incest, and life of the mother. Note that he said life of the mother, not health of the mother, which are two different things-- if the fetus isn't definitely going to kill the woman, there's a chance she won't get the abortion she still needs, or w...


One Woman’s Demand

Women have not been treated as full citizens of these United States from the inception of this country, and our Declaration of Independence and Constitution through the amendment process, did not remedy these deficiencies, our lives have been restricted unduly because of false information and invalid ideas which depicted women as inferior human beings in mind and body incapable of self determi...


Silence No More

The first thing an abusive man teaches “his” woman is to be silent. I am sitting here wondering if I dare make this analogy.  I do not wish to make light of those women who find themselves trapped in the reality of abuse so please do not make the assumption that I am not aware.  I have seen the harm that a man can do to a woman or a child and somehow justify it in his demented diseased mi...


A Southern Lady’s Rant

UniteWomen.org-Vagina-Rant-GOP-War-on-Women-Unite-Against-the-War-on-Women-Silencing-Women

Gentility, decorum and just plain old good manners are the mark of a proper southern woman.  We pride ourselves on our hospitality and adherence to the social graces. That is, until some scurrilous individual takes advantage of our inherent good nature.  Then all Hell breaks loose and I am here to tell you all Hell is breaking loose all over this country. It seems they have taken our polit...


Have You Had Enough Yet Vaginas?

On February 16, 2012 thousands of women across this country were faced with an image that became the straw to break the camel’s back.  The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing on the contraceptive coverage rule called an all-male panel with no women representatives, prompting some women members of Congress to walk out of the hearing in protest. This was just another slap i...


This is not the end…

Two weeks after Bloody Sunday, Dr. King assured a gathering of organizers, activists and community members that they should not despair because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. On March 25, 1965, having completed the third march to Montgomery, the city that gave birth to the civil rights movement, Dr. King spoke these words on the steps of the Alabama State ...
