Well, let's see, they've gotten all the minorities to think big bad whitey is out to get them.

......all the women to the think that all the big bad white men are out to get 'em.....

.....all the non-religious to think those big bad theocrats are out to get 'em........

Next will be "the War on Children"

I can hear it now. "How dare those evil parents expect you to clean your room AND do all that homework?" The ACLU probably has a faction working on it as I write this. I never worry, the left will never run out of victims to save, even if they have to invent them, because it's what they live for.

Maybe it was just because Mr. Strinburger was an azzwipe. Blaming her friends for telling her she didn't need to stay in an abusive relationship,

Republican Senators Olympia Snowe, Kay Baily Hutcheson, and Lisa Murkowski have also called for a cease fire from their colleagues in the War on Women. Murkowski said, "It makes no sense to make this attack on women," "If you don't feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters."
Murkowski said that she would continue to support funding for Planned Parenthood, and that she stands by abortion and reproductive rights.

Meanwhile, back on the war front, Governor Walker used Good Friday to unlease a full frontal attack on women's rights and health.

And Yes...Republicans have waged war on children for decades in fighting clean air, water, and food acts. Children are precious in the womb only. And now more..
* According to USAID, 70,000 children around the world will die if Republicans make the cuts it wants to make. Approximately 30,000 kids would die from cuts in malaria control programs, 24,000 from lack of immunizations, and 16,000 due to unsafe birthing practices.
* Republicans are currently attempting to eliminate the ban on insurance companies that keeps them from denying coverage to children with pre-existing conditions. That puts 19.4 million children at risk of possible harm or even death.
* If Republicans have their way, kids will no longer be able to remain on their parents’ insurance plans until the age of 26 and pregnant women as well as breast and prostate cancer patients could be thrown off the insurance rolls.
* They are also targeting welfare, unemployment benefits, and food stamps. Nearly half of all US children depend on food stamps during childhood. Without food stamps, WIC, unemployment benefits, and welfare in general, millions of children across the country are at risk of starving to death.
* In addition to attacking the health and nutrition of children, they are also seeking to destroy their minds and their childhoods as well. Republicans in many states, especially in Missouri and Maine, are introducing bills that will repeal child labor laws.
* Republicans are essentially making it easier for pedophiles to rape children. In Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty, former governor and potential Republican candidate for President, pardoned a child molester while he was in office, so that molester’s wife could open a child day care center in THEIR home.
* The GOP is also waging war against the public school system. In their effort abolish public education in favor of privately run schools, Republicans are trying to slash funding that is used for desks, books, technology, and other materials that contribute to learning. That’s all in addition to their scheme to rewrite textbooks in order to indoctrinate children to the conservative philosophy.
* Republicans in Michigan and other red states are pushing for laws that will only allow foster children to buy second hand clothing. Thousands of foster children are being denied permanent homes because of Republican opposition to same sex marriage.
* Republicans also want to shatter our children’s dreams and aspirations too. Many Republicans have stated that President Obama is an illegitimate President, because he is an illegitimate child.

Statists need to create victims as an excuse for creating an ever more powerful federal government to protect them. A coercive central government like that is the exact opposite of what our Constitution calls for--but this president and his faithful have contempt for the Constitution. So-called liberals claim to respect the rule of law and to love individual liberties, even while they work to undermine them both. They pose as the defenders of all things good and kind, but they want to control everyone's life. Nothing very good or kind about that.

Posted: 4/9/2012 11:42:19 AM

From the hundreds of anti-women's rights bills, to the name calling, shutting out women in giving testimony, and politicization of womens health care in general, it's becoming widely accepted that there is indeed a war on women, prominently from the far right of the US. Seeking to set back women's rights and health care decades or in some cases a century or more, the attacks on women via legislation is escalating to an obsecene level with yet more absurd bills.

In Kansas, the right to lie bill for doctors puts women and fetuses in dire danger, merely because a health care provider has a different religious view of health care.
https://www.aclu.org/blog/reproductive-freedom/kansas-pregnant-women-little-lie-your-doctor-wont-hurt-you

In Arizona, the Theocrats want to allow employers to decide if women are allowed to obtain birth control via the employers insurance plan, and even further to have the right to fire a women merely for using birth control.
http://www.aclu.org/blog/reproductive-freedom/use-birth-control-youre-fired

How far do you think this will go before the war on women implodes on itself or will we do that slide back decades? Will serious numbers of women desert the GOP for good over this assault?


I'm choosing to drop the label of "War on Women" and simply address the facts that I have briefly read and experienced myself.

The health legislation affects both genders. AZ passed a legislation that prohibits men from having the benefit of full health exams as well, for example.

I feel it breaches upon my right to liberty (for me, defined as freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control) to say that I can't have a full health exam ( the bill isn't limited to abortions- it includes routine mammograms, cervical cancer testing, etc.,,, yet I have the right to choose the insurer. If they are all limiting this provision, then I see it as an across-the-board control to place controls on routine health issues.

As individuals, we have the collective right to demand what we want- in this case, better routine benefits, but few, if any, will enact a mainstream effort in that direction. It could be done as simply as only using providers who have the best benefits for routine care- as well as overall benefits- thereby causing other companies to compete.

One can also exercise their rights with their vote.

Part of the war on women has been an assault on sex education and reproductive options for kids vulnerable to teen births. Dumbing down the curriculum and stressing abstinence only over BC has been an utter failure, ignoring horny human nature at that age.

Will serious numbers of women desert the GOP for good over this assault?
Earth, on March 8th this year, I punched my LAST Republican ballot. For 42 years, I had voted at least...98-99% Republican candidates, but NO MORE.

Personally, I don't give a hoot about birth control, equal pay or any of the rest...BECAUSE..it no longer applies to me...so I have nothing to gain or lose personally. As an intelligent and decent human being however, the Republican party (ideology) has become so....bigoted, rednecked, ignorant and hypocritical that they make me sick. One of the biggest harangues by Republican candidates is their FALSE claims of being conservative Christians. NEVER in my 59 yrs on this planet have I see such ANTI Christian behavior out of any group of people as we now see from so called conservative Republicans.

These "conservatives" claim to be "Pro Life", when in FACT...there is NOTHING "pro life" about them at all! They are "pro-birth", but that is where it STOPS. IF they were truely concerned with reducing welfare roles, preventing child abuse/neglect...all of which cost taxpayers billions of dollars a year, would you not think that THEY would be completely supportive of the MUCH cheaper option of helping males AND females to PREVENT "unwanted pregnancy"? As a taxpayer...I certainly find it a much more sensible and economically feasible plan. But, Republicans....want these parents to give birth...and then USE that innocent life to force "responsibility" onto the adults, who WERE actually BEING "responsible" in the first place...but recognizing that they didn't want to be/ could not be successful at...parenting. Republicans FORCE the "responsible"...into a position where they can barely be anything but "irresponsible". The Peter Principle.

Republican supporters want everyone to believe that "we" are being asked to PAY for a woman's birth control. NO! Sorry Rush Limbaugh, that nobody asked "us" to provide the Sandra Flukes of the country with birth control. ALL that is being asked for....is EQUALITY in medical care! She was talking about a PRIVATE health care policy, which SHE pays for...and one which COVERS all the Viagra that any male can consume...so that HE can be a "slut"....but that uses the FALSE argument of conservative Christianity to deny the covereage of birth control pills for women. IF.....IF this were in fact a Christian principle, then these people would, 1)...NOT write Viagra prescriptions for men who were....NOT married....or who's wifes were beyond child bearing age!!! PERIOD. If they want to USE the Bible...then USE IT....don't abuse it! Biblically, the "spilling of seed" refers to men DELIBERATELY not impregnating FERTILE women and propogaging the race. So EVERY Republican who advocates the distribution of Viagra to men who are single, or who's wife is over the age of 50....IS committing a sin, by encouraging adultry...being a "stumbling block".

This was a question that I had to ask MYSELF....a very long time ago. AM I truly "pro-life". The answer must be...NO, I'm not. (I am a Christian) I WISH that no one would ever have an abortion, but am I happy and willing to SUPPORT that life after it's created? NO, I'm not. I WISH all people would be decent and responsible...but it's NOT my choice, and I can't LEGISLATE it so. Republicans SAY (hypocrites) they believe in staying out of the personal lives of people...but WHY then are they even IN these arguments? They will tell you, that they are doing "Gods Work"...that is a LIE. "Gods Work" is NOT done through lies, deceit and hatefulness, it's done through MEEKNESS, CHARITY, LOVE, and a Peaceful Spirit. 1 Corinthians 13:4:
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
SHOW ME, a Republican candidate who LIVES this...and I may again vote Republican, but until that time, the Democrats ARE more honorable in that...they don't deny being "liberal". They don't DENY not having a conservative Christian base.

Had you asked me 30 years ago if I might ever consider being a Democratic supporter, I'd have called you insane. I don't necessarily LIKE the fact, and I certainly don't agree with many of their goals and philosophies, but my CONSCIENCE tells me that I can no longer support the hypocritical and unGodly stance that the majority of Republicans today represent.
Luke 9:1
One day Jesus called together his twelve disciplesa and gave them power and authority to cast out all demons and to heal all diseases. Then he sent them out to tell everyone about the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick. “Take nothing for your journey,” he instructed them. “Don’t take a walking stick, a traveler’s bag, food, money, or even a change of clothes. Wherever you go, stay in the same house until you leave town. And if a town refuses to welcome you, shake its dust from your feet as you leave to show that you have abandoned those people to their fate.”
Jesus did NOT tell HIS diciples to force healing down the throats of anyone! He simply said....if they reject you...then do not take even so much as the dust on your feet from them! The Republican party really should find a TRUE Christian to enlighten them to the FACT that God is a gentleman...and He does NOT force Himself onto people...and that THEIR actions are REALLY...the work of Satan (through them)...which actually turns people AGAINST God, not toward Him.

And, with this...I apologize to any of you who are offended by MY opinions, I would hope that as I RESPECT YOUR right to believe as you wish, and to voice the same...that you might offer me the same courtesy. Thank You. In any case...THIS Woman....has turned against the Republican Party....you have my reasons.

This War on Women and Sexuality promotes the opposite effect of what conservatives actually want to accomplish. It's no different then the War on Alcohol was (prohibition) or the current War on Drugs. Trying to force people to do as you wish fails miserably. It just makes people more curious about why and so they try it. Just like any War this is counterproductive and only lines corrupt individuals pocketbooks while taking away more freedom from us all. I cannot for the life of me see why anyone would want to allow others to determine what they can and cannot do to their own personal body. It's insanity!!



1. The Netherlands



The Netherlands has a reputation for being one of the most pro-sex countries in the world, and it isn’t hard to understand why. From comprehensive sex education to legal prostitution (Amsterdam has one of Europe’s most famous red light districts) to nude and topless beaches, the Netherlands is a social conservative’s worst nightmare. On top of that, the Netherlands was the first country in the world to legalize gay marriage (the Netherlands legalized same-sex civil unions in 1998 and gay marriage in 2001). But while Rick Santorum would no doubt view Amsterdam and Rotterdam as a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah, the reality is that all that sexual openness is having positive results in the Netherlands. Sociologist Amy Schalet (author of “Not Under My Roof: Parents, Teens and the Culture of Sex” and a professor at the University of Massachusetts) has done extensive sex-related research on the United States and the Netherlands, often asserting that Americans would be much better off if they had the sexual openness of the Dutch.



And the data bears that out. The United Nations reported that in 2009, the Netherlands had a teen birth rate of 5.3 per 1,000 compared to 39.1 per 1,000 in the United States that year (teen birth rates provided by the United Nations, the Guttmacher Institute, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Advocates for Youth and other organizations typically look at females in the 15–19 age group). Advocates for Youth has reported that the Netherlands had an abortion rate of 8.8 per 1,000 in 2006 compared to 14.8 per 1,000 in the United States in 2007 (abortion rates, as a rule, are based on the number of abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44). And Advocates for Youth has also reported that in 2009, the United States had three times as many adults living with HIV or AIDS as the Netherlands (0.2 percent in the Netherlands compared to 0.6 percent in the United States). Also, in 2006, there were roughly 13 cases of gonorrhea per 100,000 Netherlands residents in the 15–19 age group compared to roughly 458 per 100,000 in the United States that year. So when it comes to sexual health, the United States is clearly dropping the ball compared to the Netherlands.

Twilightslove..
I doubt that the War on Women was pretty much all about control, and sounding off the dog whistles for their extreme right base of voters. Women tend to favor candidates not from the far right and in their minds, must be disempowered, disenfranchised, submissive, less equal, paid less, made to carry sperm to term, even if the fetus is dead and may cause disease or death in women, and women's health and autonomy must be made to suffer for their uppityness. They never got over the New Deal, the Civil Rights Act, ERA, and other laws that with each added equality for others, they felt diminished the superiority of men.

It has never been about honesty either, as the facts and figures of the Alternet piece and numerous domestic studies here point out, every action they have been taking in their War on Women will have negative consequences in all their hot button issues. They surely cannot be doing this out of stupidity. It is dishonesty and desperation.

Aries, if you're sincerely more worried about a Sharia theocracy than a Christian one, then you ahve your priorities sideways. Because this kind of tripe ain't coming from the Muslims.....

MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - Tennessee senators approved an update to the state's abstinence-based sex education law that includes warnings against "gateway sexual activity."

In a new family life instructions bill, holding hands and kissing could be considered gateways to sex. Planned Parenthood said that allowing state government to define local sex education curriculum could backfire.

According to a 2009 Youth Risk Behavior Study, 61 percent of Memphis City high school students and 27 percent of middle school students have had sex. That's higher than the national average.

Planned Parenthood said these numbers are why a new sex education bill promoting abstinence is not realistic.

"If the state of Tennessee gets to create the curriculum, it has to create something that umbrella reflects everyone," said Planned Parenthood Director of Education Elokin CaPese.

Tennessee House Bill 3621 and Senate Bill 3310 are currently up for debate.

In the bill, a uniformed policy on sex education is defined with terms like "gateway sexual activity." Also listed are statewide instructions on how to teach family life curriculum.

"It's not detailed enough in a health-based way," said CaPese.

The bill prohibits teachers from demonstrating gateway sexual activity. CaPese said that would include health education models.

"It makes it very clear that you can't promote contraception," said CaPese.

If an instructor goes beyond the curriculum, the bill gives parents more legal rights, stating, "The parent or legal guardian shall have a cause of action against the instructor or organization for actual damages."

"They can opt out, and that means that parents already have the power that we want them to have," said CaPese.

The bill goes before the House Education Committee next Tuesday

The Republicans are courting evangelical votes because they're a good-sized voting block and that's about it.

The evangelicals are eating it up because it puts them back in power and gives them some relevance and that's about it.

None of it has to do with real morality, just politics and power and votes.

No, is the repetition of NOW´s agenda


No...It is a return to the THEN agenda, a simpler time in the 1950s and earlier when women knew their place, did not expect equal pay or rights, had few choices on family planning and reproductive rights and health. Men, the Bishops, and evangelicals are pushing this slew of regressive legislation toward reversing as much as they can of the gains by women in the US in the last several decades. It is part of the larger strategy to roll back the New Deal and Great Society programs. It's also an act of desperation in the dream of trying to establish and hold a permanent republican majority. As demographics are changing dramatically, this is a hail mary pass by the far right that will hopefully fail miserably for them and remove the threat of the permanent republican majority forever.

Interesting. I would say they learned how to manipulate the system by watching how liberalism was able to work itself into laws through activism in local legislation.

Most of those annoying life restriction laws done at the local levels were done this way. So, that same 'weakness' in the system is being exploited in the other direction. You want to ban smoking, cholesterol, fat, fast food chains, certain vehicles, plastic bags, then move state wide for 'environmental laws' and other agenda driven policies.

Well... it is a very effective strategy.

It does seem as though those in GOP leadership read and listen like some of the posters here:

Confused McConnell Thinks Female GOP Senators Agree With Him That There Is No ‘War On Women’

By Annie-Rose Strasser on Apr 9, 2012 at 1:49 pm


Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is either confused about what’s going on in his caucus, or in denial.

On a local Kentucky radio show today, the Senate minority leader argued that the female members in his caucus agree with him that the GOP’s “war on women” is just “a manufactured issue”:


MCCONNELL: There is no issue. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and Kelly Ayotte from New Hampshire and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe from Maine I think would be the first to say — and Lisa Murkowski from Alaska — ‘we don’t see any evidence of this.’

Except that they do. Three of the four women McConnell names have already come out against the GOP’s war on women — Sens. Olympia Snowe (R-ME), Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK).

In fact, Murkowski specifically pushed back on claims like McConnell’s, saying, “If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters.” Maybe McConnell should take her advice.

funny you say that, ex- NHL (or at least, Toronto Maple Leafs) hockey player Rick Vaive was recently acquitted of DUI charges after testing at 2 X the blood-alcohol level because he pissed his pants.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/former-leafs-captain-rick-vaive-cleared-of-drunk-driving-charge/article2400404/comments/

or was it because he has lots o' money to hire lawyers and 'celebrity' status? or a combination?

maybe a good strategy if you are ever drinking, driving & are pulled over by the police?

Conservatives by far legislate morality, doing so based on ancient standards, fear and the old testament, where liberals tend to legislate out of logic, reason, and the Beatitudes of the new testament. The last time self-destructive behavior was banned was by prohibitionists pushing their biblical principles.

Liberal legislation tends to promote more freedom and equality, where the inverse is true of conservatives. Civil rights, womens's rights, the rights of LGBT and those who marry inter-racially have been championed by liberals. Laws to rescind or limit those rights are promoted by conservatives. Conservatives marched lock step in the methodical, radical reigning in of rights during the last administration.

The war on women is again, about control and limiting rights and personal sovereignty for over half the population. Watch out for the backlash.

Just because you talk out your backside doesn't mean anything you say is true. Go hug a tree and wish upon a star.

Laughing my azz off at this link to a 7 year old article bout some bill that never was actually proposed nor passed.

Single use plastic bags are banned....but, not the multiple use bag I bring to the store for my personal shopping....typical BS....you want to pollute yet don't want to be responsible for the clean-up.

Are you stretching it or what:

An article about Elk Grove CA wanting to let rental property owners protect their properties from smoking renters...get a grip...a clue...or at least post a link to something that isn't so far from the "facts" that it makes the one citing them look foolish:

Elk Grove considers banning smoking at apartment complexes
Sacramento Business Journal by Michael Shaw, 3/22/12

Elk Grove will consider banning smoking at its apartment complexes.

On Wednesday, the City Council is set to consider limiting smoking, including possibly directing staff to draft an ordinance banning the practice at apartment communities.

The Rental Housing Association of Sacramento Valley opposes such an ordinance — saying rental owners, not the city of Elk Grove , should decide on the appropriate policy for their properties.

The association said in a prepared statement that several other Sacramento communities have examined the issue and decided to seek to educate owners about the benefits of adopting no-smoking policies rather than outright bans.

Some complexes have adopted such policies while others have offered a certain amount of smoke-free units.

Landlords have the choice to designate their rental properties smoke-free under a state law that was enacted Jan. 1.
