So what? I have abortion rights and birth control!

WTF do I need ERA for? What do you mean I don’t have equal rights?

Tax donations needed: puppets or food banks, your money – your choice? Nov. 6

LET EM EAT CAKE!  Have these liberals no shame?

The 99% are on the East Coast this week yet the 1% in the entertainment Industry want our tax dollars for puppets? Ball players want their parades but throw us crumbs in return and insult us every chance they get with racial insults. If it were not for the viewing public there would be NO entertainment industry or spectator sports. Maybe it is time we send that message loud and clear. Let them eat cake!

If we are going to pay taxes – let it go to the devastated as a result of SANDY not to the 1% in the entertainment industry. PLEASE – I beg you pass that message around today and every day till the polls close!

Enough is enough- We have been told that wall street is the 1% but the entertainment industry and the Ball players and Hockey players make as much and hire so few- and where are they now?

Paid millions in salary, Sergio Romo wears ‘I just look illegal’ shirt at S.F. Giants parade paid for by tax dollars.

The entire billion dollar National Football League and players jointly, will donate a million to the Sandy effort while we spend more than that on parades for them when they win – where are they when we need them? http://www.footballnewsnow.com/2012/nfl-nflpa-to-donate-1-million-to-american-red-cross-to-aide-hurricane-sandy-victims/ Do you have any idea the tax dollars we spend on the roads to the stadium we spend each year here in NJ?

And now NPR and PBS who pay their executives nearly a million a year in salary are marching for tax dollar support on a day when the East coast is devastated? Gimme a break- let the entertainment industry pony up for their own – we have to take care of our own. No more tax dollars to the already rich and to the entertainment industry and sporting parades! Let those who have – pay their own way! 

Women’s Issues Ignored: ladies oblivious to the facts!

Survivors Justice begging for attention to women’s plight right here in America  has caused me to rant again: Author asks ” What are we going to do for them???” http://survivorsjustice.com/2012/10/31/what-are-we-going-to-do-for-them/ I responded and am posting my reply as an article- if you agree please let her know suou side with survivors!

Note- this is not about abortion- I am pro-choice for your personal rights! Tthis is about all the other rights that every other woman also has a right to demand and whose choices are not considered as important and whose life , liberty and pursuit of happiness depends on more than reproductive rights! There is more to life then the right to end it- some of us are struggling to live it!

Apparently the war on women has nothing to do with beating them, raping them, abusing them , starving them, or taking away their children to award them to the batterer who wants to avoid child support and alimony. It has everything to do with dividing women into two political groups; those who want children and those who want the right not to have them! In the process the majority is split into minorities without enough power to affect change for womankind but enough power to sway elections. We are being USED ladies and abused. WAKE UP!If you ask me – ignoring all the things that we really need- like the litany of problems I mentioned above and jobs, education, the debt, war, economy: price of food and utilities etc. etc. is the war on women.IGNORING all of US- is the war!

When is the last time you needed an abortion more than food, safety for yourself and your children , a place to live, a job, your batterer jailed for his crime, or a court to listen objectively before turning our children over to the pedophiles or batterers who abused them?

But what do we know – we are beaten, battered, stupid breeders who apparently don’t need equal rights, just a lot of rhetoric that reproductive rights makes us the most powerful beings on earth because we hold the power of life and death.

What a load of shit- we are being murdered at the rate of 4 a day by our intimate partners. We are beaten by those we love and trust every 9 seconds – we are raped every 9 minutes and they tell us all we want is to abort a possible pregnancy?

Gimme a break – I want the right to castrate the bastard who raped me and any other son of a bitch who rapes my child. I want these batterers locked away! I want pedophiles castrated and put on an island. I don’t give a rat’s ass about their civil rights.

I care about the civil rights of the majority – which in case you have not noticed – WE DO NOT HAVE! What we have is the right to abort and nothing more! I care about the rights of innocent children who have no voice and are victimized by adults, the courts, pedophiles and would be mothers who take their rage out on the child instead of the perpetrator.
