Women thinking with what is between their ears not between their legs

Worried more about the children and family they do have rather than the babies they never want to have and these women have waged their own battle in the war against women! Finally the left has insulted typical women long enough to spark the fire that inflames the majority to fight back against being treated as walking vaginas. We are so much more than just reproduction systems who count as votes but have no brains beyond our so called reproductive health care!

I knew we had it in us! Woo Hoo for the ladies who have had enough with the abortion and birth control debate. Women are more worried about taking care of the children they have than the children they don’t want to ever have!

In the swing states, the power of women

A new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll of the Swing States shows Mitt Romney with a lead among likely voters as he strengthens his standing with women in the nation’s top battlegrounds.

9:06PM EDT October 15. 2012 – WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney leads President Obama by four percentage points among likely voters in the nation’s top battlegrounds, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, and he has growing enthusiasm among women to thank.

Exposure to Sexual Content in Popular Movies Predicts Sexual Behavior in Adolescence

Science News

ScienceDaily (July 17, 2012) — Intuitively it simply makes sense: exposure to sexual content in movies at an early age probably influences adolescents’ sexual behavior. And yet, even though a great deal of research has shown that adolescents who watch more risky behaviors in popular movies, like drinking or smoking, are more likely to drink and smoke themselves, surprisingly little research has examined whether movies influence adolescents’ sexual behaviors.

Until now.

Over six years, psychological scientists examined whether or not seeing sex on the big screen translates into sex in the real world for adolescents. Their findings, which are to be published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, revealed not only that it did but also explained some of the reasons why.

Sue Else: Even one death resulting from an ineffective NNEDV program is one too many

BettyJean Kling- TMU WOMEN Coalition

The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) has concluded a recent survey revealing the strain across the nation on agencies providing services to the victims of domestic violence. Reports show that more than 80 percent of domestic violence programs report an increased demand for their services, while nearly the same number report decreases in funding.

Sue Else, president of NNEDV, said that programs around the country are struggling to provide life-saving services to victims.

“The economy is exacerbating domestic violence, and victim advocates across the country are struggling to do more with less,” Else said.

Sue Else said a mouthful, about “programs around the country struggling to provide life-saving services to victims.” Let’s take Wisconsin for example. According to a report, on Sept. 15, 2010, domestic violence victim advocates answered more than 20,000 emergency hotline calls but more than 9,000 requests went unmet, largely due to lack of funding, said Tony Gibart of the Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence (WCAD).

A recent statewide survey indicated that 88 percent of Wisconsin’s domestic violence programs have experienced funding cuts in the last three years. … Meanwhile, more than 40 percent of Wisconsin programs have had to reduce staff to deal with budget crises.

The year 2009 set decade-high records for domestic violence homicides in Wisconsin, with 67 people losing their lives in 52 incidents. This rise in fatal domestic violence corresponds with recent increased demands on local victim service providers, the study notes.

People Against Domestic and Sexual Abuse (PADA) finds itself in a critical position across the United States.

“Over the last couple of years, we have lost significant funding from the county government and a private foundation,” said Amy Venables O’Neil, executive director of PADA, based in Jefferson County. “We had to make difficult decisions just to maintain basic services. This has all happened while demand increased.”

Clearly, Sue Else, president of NNEDV, has been aware of the severity of the problem for years, she is aware of the 80% rise in demand and corresponding funding cuts yet no cuts in the NNEDV Staffing and administrative costs. Give me a break Sue- have you met any of the goals? Violence is up, laws have not changed nearly enough and exactly how many lives has NNEDV saved because of effectively holding perpetrators accountable?

Mary Kay Foundation and Phillip Morris the biggest contributors to The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) should be notified and encouraged to contribute directly toward saving lives rather than toward the exorbitant salary compensation package for Sue Else amounting to nearly a half million dollars and more than many of the projects themselves i.e. Amy’s Courage fund shown above.

According to the Mary Kay Foundation money is given to NNEDV to fund women who need immediate help: If you or anyone you know needs immediate help, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-SAFE (7233). http://www.marykayfoundation.org/Pages/WomenAndViolence.aspx

Is there any accountability at this national network? Have there been any oversight or performance evaluations? Let’s find out and while we are at it lets get an accounting for where the 25 million went? Did it go to shelters in all 50 states as claimed? The foundation claims: The Mary Kay Foundation has awarded nearly $25 million in grant money to shelters for women and children in all 50 states since 2000.

It is time for us to start asking questions and insisting on answers! The time is now! The proof is in the pudding- after 15 years http://www.nnedv.org/about/history.html what are all these folks getting paid to do and what is being accomplished besides the staff all having a high paying job and a fancy title. Are the victims getting the voice they were promised or the benefits of the listed signature programs?

 NNEDVsignature programs promise but in 15 years have not delivered:

  • Empowering domestic violence survivors to lead independent lives free from abuse;
  • Supporting the 56 state-wide and territorial coalitions against domestic and sexual violence;
  • Advancing economic empowerment and financial literacy for domestic violence survivors and their allies;
  • Improving high-profile media coverage of domestic violence cases;
  • Educating survivors and their allies about safe technological practices and how batterers misuse technology to further abuse;
  • Building the capacity of local and state-wide coalitions against domestic and sexual violence;
  • Providing state-specific legal information for domestic violence survivors; and
  • Promoting federal legislation that effectively holds perpetrators accountable and strengthens services for survivors and their children.

Based on what I’ve experienced firsthand, what women callers tell me on the radio and based on stories from our coalitions partners reported from their readers, bloggers and friends, there are a lot more abusive men out there than we ever realized. It’s way past time we do something about it. And it is way past time we stop settling for window dressing organizations like bogus charities, that collect money just so they can exist but actually use very little of the income for their intended purpose – ‘Network to End Domestic Violence.’ Hell this network isn’t even making a damned dent in it! Like many other Government programs in DC- it’s another failure- victims should do an occupy the NNEDV or at the very least shut ‘em’ down and send the money to the volunteers to use for the victims. We are the ones working for the victims and we are doing it for free!

I am getting fed up with the salaries of these folks remaining high while there are shrinking funds to actually help victims. Much like charities – the lion’s share of the funds go to running the enterprise rather than to those in need! Enough is enough, I say we expose this exploitation of limited funds at the expense of victims!

*WEBMASTER NEEDED:

The TMU WOMEN’s Coalition founded the National Domestic Violence Oversight Committee NDVOC.com. We are a non-partisan volunteer group determined to reform domestic violence and stalking victim resources and public policy so that no victim is left behind.

The purpose of the NDVOC web site is to serve as a forum for survivors to share their experiences and rate victim service providers in the United States. The goal of this site is to hold victim service providers, courts and public safety agencies accountable and to ensure the needs of victims are met.

According to Alexis Moore of Survivors in Action, This is desperately needed. “I still remember like yesterday being turned away and ignored by the DV shelter, National Stalking Resource Center and other national, state and local crime victim agencies wondering where do I go to file complaints for being re-victimized?” Today after talking to thousands of victims across the country with the same complaint—NDVOC is vital in the efforts to reforming victim resources and ensuring that no victim is left behind”.

Maria DiBari of Tri-County Crisis Center agrees there is no oversight and no one is watching those who should be watching where the DV funds are going.

Together with TMU and others we have been three years forming this committee and now we need volunteers across the country to make it happen.

Did Bloomberg order a knock-down of the 911 Rally?

BettyJean Kling

Police lied about numbers at rally…Press too…well we expect it from them, but the police? They must have been given orders to knock down the numbers. Check the photos and ask BettyJean who was in the staging area before it started!

I was there and they were chasing us away – I was moved 7 times! I was moved so far away I had to go around the block and could not get back never heard all the speakers at all they closed access. The truth is they finally refused access to thousands.

I was there at 1:30 before the rally started, I was with several of the speakers in the staging area and had a few words with Pamela Geller before her detail men put me and many of the speakers out of the tent for security reasons and because the staging area was too small to hold us all.

Once placed just outside the staging area the police arrived demanding we leave that area immediately. First they allowed us to step across the road and stand on the curb but another set of police forced us behind the barricades even though we explained we were with the speakers. By that time what seemed like thousands coming in from the ground zero ceremony arrived and the Police went crazy and closed down the sidewalk entirely. They kept shoving us backwards until I, along with many in my group were forced right out of the block. Not being a speaker I just went the way of the crowd but many of the speakers were scattered about.

I tried to re- enter by walking up each block as far back as the eye can see but the streets were full and the crowd was thick. I kept backing out and going another block further away and trying again. The camera cannot show you around corners where I was forced to go only to be out of range of both the camera’s and earshot.

I went from standing next to Pam Geller to not even being in the picture. Don’t let anyone tell you there were 1500! And shame on Geraldo and others for inviting Pamela Geller as a guest draw an audience then not allowing her to have her voice or voice ours!

Police lied about numbers at rally…Press too…well we expect it from them, but the police? They must have been given orders to knock down the numbers. Check the photos. peaks! Historic 911 Rally Draws 40,000

The media pretends these people don’t exist. It’s criminal.

We will be heard.

Tens of thousands descended upon Ground Zero today to remember those we lost nine years ago, and to save the American principles of freedom that the sharia tramples.

Crickets are chirping in taqiya media newsrooms nationwide (although they were all there). There has been no coverage.

We organized a rally of remembrance that dwarfed the opposition. If the America haters had 4,000, we had ten times more. The media is playing the dueling rallies; it was no such thing.

Free people came from all over the country and all over the world to stand in solidarity with the 911 families and to declare our iron determination that no victory mosque will be built on their graves. The crowd was young and old, black and white …….. politics of all stripes. The crowd was beautiful. The crowd was proud and good and decent America. All the speakers were excellent. Rousing.

But the highlights included Geert Wilders, who was greeted as the great hero that he is, and spoke about how a sharia mosque at Ground Zero would be the death New York’s proud tradition of Dutch tolerance.

Ambassador John Bolton spoke bluntly and unequivocally via video link about the affront to American values that this mosque would constitute. 

Other powerful voices included Joseph Nassralla, who was the unwilling media darling of our June 6th rally, when a misunderstanding was blown out of proportion by the mainstream media as a racist incident. Joseph Nassralla was the Arab who was supposedly in a confrontation at that rally. At this rally we were proud to feature him, and he was so passionate and rousing in his love for America and fierce denunciation of the thousand-year-old Islamic oppression of the Coptic Christians in Egypt that the crowd went wild as Joseph led them in cheers of God Bless America!

But his warning was clear. The Ground Zero mosque would be the beginning of the end, and Egypt shows where the presence of Islam leads in a free nation.

Steve Malzberg and Mike Gallagher were greeted by huge cheers. It was an historic day in American history. Here is the first of El Marco’s peerless coverage. More pictures and video will be going up continuously. So check back. And El Marco and Pamela Hall will have the definitive post tomorrow (hopefully).

Listen to my friends, the 911 families, Rosa my friend spoke for many and I am so proud of her.
