An Assault on Women's Rights

By now you know that  Susan G. Komen has 'succumbed' to pressure to stop funding Planned Parenthood.  What you may not know is that some of the players in this horrific attack against women health are political tools.  This  post by Karoli on Crooks and Liars will take you deeper into this factor.  It is important to know who works for these organizations, who calls the shots and what masters they serve.

Susan G. Komen is not the only organization against Planned Parenthood, there are catholic, evangelical and other religious factions whose message boards are rabid over anything pertaining to Planned Parenthood.  They cloak their words with scripture specifically chosen to perpetuate the stereotypical role of women.

The Perfect Lover

Passion, love, lust and physical perfection -  What is there not to like? - This is the stuff that keeps us reading romance novels and drooling over the main characters.

For spicy conflict, the story line includes road blocks, hesitation, tantalizing visuals and the unavoidable stunted emotional growth of one or more of the characters.

The happy ending usually involves improved communication, uncovered facts and compromise.

Ah! the perfect love affair! - Twisted, tangled, sexy, and above all: Complex.  It is impossible to write a perfect love story without drama and trauma, not because it does not exist, but because it is just not as appealing without it. In fact, it is boring.  

What does the perfect lover have to do with a political blog? - Plenty.  

Since we elected President Obama we have seen people swooning when he gives that devastatingly open smile.  Yes, smiles like that are incredibly sexy.  No argument here.

We have swooned when he looks into Mrs. Obama's eyes and get the sense of people who truly love and are committed to each other.  Yes, loving your partner is incredibly sexy.

In romance novels, the male lead is the strong, silent type that is also tall, dark and handsome.   He remains cool under pressure and is the voice of reason in a storm of screaming banshees. - Sexy as hell, I tell ya.  

Amazingly enough, President Obama resembles those remarks, and so does First Lady, Michelle Obama. Why is this not enough for us? When have we ever experienced this in the past?

Letter to GOP Candidates

We wish this nightmare was over. We can't wait to re-elect President Obama and get on with our lives as we intend them to be.  

Your presence on the political stage is cementing the notion in our collective minds that CIVIL SERVICE is for people who want to serve the 99% not the 1% - For that, we owe you a debt of thanks.

Your party and the Koch brothers have forced our hand into activism and regardless of what anyone has to say about the Occupy movement, we are glad to see them off the couch and inconveniencing your lives.  You have destroyed ours - turn about is fair play.
