How weird Dean

Another Reant by: BettyJean Kling

Behind the Scenes of the 2008 Presidential Election

I got a call from my friend and she could hardly contain herself – I couldn’t even make out what she as saying . Robin – I ‘m sayin “Slow down  slow down !” When she finally caught her breath she managed to explain that she just heard our dear dear Howard Dean going on and on and on about how badly women were treated in this election …. at that point I cut her off and asked what in the hell was she smoking, inhaling, drinking or snorting!

“That’s what I am trying to tell you”: she said.

Apparently the damned fool was trying to convince the audience on C-Span that although Hillary people thought he was all on Obama’s side — are you sitting readers? — Obama’s people were sure he was all for Hillary!!!

Ok- are you up off the floor now?

He then goes on to rail at the media for what they did to her … and because I can not do this story any justice and because you just have to hear it for yourselves before it goes poof- here is the video,  it is almost 7 minutes that must be kept for posterity!

Listen to the first man – he is pretty interesting too and then How Weird Dean does his Oscar award winning bull shit story of the century and you simply have got to hear it to believe it- he sounds like he really means it. If I had not been here to see him never lift a friggen eye brow – I would have thought he was on all those marches with us and cried all those tears we cried and  — well you get the picture.

Twisted Logic Celebration

Dedicated to Gerri, Hillary and Sarah

Tears were shed in the streets, throngs celebrating in Times Square could be heard from 1st. Ave., the media was in a frenzy, Obots were in heaven, black leaders were lined up to tell us how proud they finally were of America (Michelle was thinking it to herself no doubt) and headlines read “History” was made on Nov. 4th 2008 in America because a black was elected to the White House. I was in tears too but I scratched my head and asked what the hell is so historic about placing yet another man in office?

 

Hold your celebrations folks. We are not there yet- history was not made – we did not overcome- and Martin Luther King’s dream was not realized. Wasn’t it King who said “I have a dream that my four little children will one day be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”? Weren’t some of those little children daughters?  

 

So now all of a sudden skin color became the factor that everyone is judging how we make history? Was it because his face was black and for a short blip in our history blacks were kept as slaves? Or maybe some would say we are celebrating a black man reminds us of slavery and somehow this partially black man with no slavery background transcends that dark part of our history? Well that may be quite a stretch but we are still not there yet!   

 

Women’s slavery has yet to be resolved – it is not a blip in history — it is a fact of a life for woman, and it’s been going on since the beginning of time. Women have been ignored, blamed, talked down to,  laughed at, held  back, paid less, worked harder, kept down, smacked around, humiliated, degraded , victimized, beaten, raped and are  murdered at the hands of men — their own husbands and fathers and are still daily victims right now.

 

This so-called historic Black candidate was not a product of the civil rights abuses of this country; he did not suffer mistreatment by during his candidacy as did both the female candidates. So I ask again what was so euphoric that millions were crying – some for joy and some from the release resulting of shedding their white guilt. Guilt they willingly accepted as their responsibility and obligated the rest of us to carry with along with them while they turned a blind eye to those of us who have been enslaved since the beginning of time and who were left behind yet again.

 

No- I maintain as do up to one half on this nations citizenry who is taxed yet not fully represented, history will not be made until every enslaved, mistreated or otherwise unrepresented citizen is equally represented, until Jeremiah Wright does not call anyone a nigger, until no women is ever again called a cunt, until women support other women whether they fully agree on every issue or not and until a woman is elected as president of the United States of America.

 

Then let there be dancing in the streets and celebrations in every home and tears of joy to celebrate a truly historic accomplishment to be proud of. In stead you stand there with tears in your eyes as if you accomplished some great feat you damned so-called civil rights leader hypocrites! Civil rights include human rights!

I am Woman Hear me Roar

 

Dedicated to the Jackasses who insist I hate Hillary and Men I’m just asking for a little R E S P E C T for all women

By BettyJean Kling

 

Women have always been so misunderstood. The minute we try to get some respect we are immediately shut down. Today I got a comment to one of my posts entitled reply “anti-male sexist much?”

Why?

I love my 2 sons and my 6 grandsons and my sons-in law (well 2 of them anyway) and I cry for my son Mikie daily who passed 8 years ago. No I do not hate men – I although I am not liking Mr. Anonymous who didn’t even have the balls to sign his name.

Anonymous said…

Geesh!! Anti-male sexist much?

That this long after your so-called candidate (presuming we’re still talking Clinton and not Palin) lost, and lost BIG in the primary you are still whining, wringing your hands and moaning hugely betrays your feelings of female privilege.

 

Clinton LOST LOST LOST by all rules agreed to by all parties before the contest ever began to the better candidate. Just because she has an “innie” instead of an “outie” does not qualify her to be selected over the one rightfully elected.

 

This election WAS historic. For the record, it also would have been historic, although tragic had it been won by Clinton or McCain (due to Palin).

 

If you honestly believe women are so “oppressed,” you need to read some unbiased authors like Hoff-Sommers or Farrell.

 

·          Battered women have advocates and shelters in every large US city. Battered men have one shelter in California and one help line in Maine.

·          Women in divorce get custody almost 100% of the time they ask for it. Men get to “visit” their children and pay backdoor alimony aka child support.

·          The second a man is (falsely or not) accused of rape, his name is plastered throughout the media. Should the allegation prove false, she is almost never publicly identified.

·          Women criminals who murder their children get counseling and probation. Men criminals who murder their children get prison or death.

·          Women homeless get shelters and vouchers. Men homeless get a newspaper and an underpass.

·          Girls who get statutorially raped by men get a “victim” label and their abuser prosecuted. Boys who get staturorially raped by women get a “lucky #$#$” label and their abuser returned to their community.

·          Men make up 99% of on-the-job fatalities — to pay money to court, and sometimes directly to, women who work comfy inside jobs or often not at all.

·          In a committed relationship, women get the choice to work full time, work part time or stay at home. Men get the non-choice: work full time.

·          It is recognized as racism that blacks die years younger than whites but not as sexism that men die years younger than women.

 

It just goes on and on, once you open your eyes to it. By refusing to acknowledge it, you only perpetuate it. November 12, 2008 7:01 AM  

And this jackass has the nerve to ask me if I am “anti-male sexist much?” Yikes – he answered this post with this canned speech before the pressed were even cold I can tell he is a card carrying “anti-female sexist much!”

Why is it always about everyone but us – why are we always last? I like to say I was born a feminist because from my earliest memory – I always knew I was treated differently and I did not like it.  I always asked why? And the answer was always the same. “Because you are a girl.”  My reply was also always the same- So what?

I have been married a few times – I’m not real good at it- they always say they are going to understand my 100% concept but they never do – so I keep my end of the bargain and when they break the contract – I’m outta there!

You know if couple each gave 100% – doing for one another would be great then whatever we did would never seem menial but done of love and concern – but when what we do for the other is demanded – expected and disrespected or taken for granted – and we are mistreated because of our choices – it becomes a problem.

I chose to keep all my children and to stay home and raise them- I chose to put my education on the back burner – I chose to do traditional things while my friends became professionals early on in life. I say chose to put my life on hold but truth be told I had 4 kids and a divorce by 19, I started so damned early I missed the sixties altogether and I’m  running around doing all those things – less the drugs  so far- in my sixties instead.

Today my sisterhood and I – we all stand together equal in strength and character and value as we should. Some conservative- some liberal and some independent. Some married- some divorced – some never married and some gay. Some with children and some childless. I finally caught up with these women thanks to Hillary and for that I will forever be grateful to the 60 year old who pulled us all together and reminded us what we started fighting for in the sixties and never got and why we need to start the women’s movement again.

Can you hear me now?

John Lennon Lyrics – 1970’s (?) Woman is the Nigger of the World Lyrics

We make her paint her face and dance
If she won’t be a slave, we say that she don’t love us
If she’s real, we say she’s trying to be a man
While putting her down, we pretend that she’s above us

Woman is the nigger of the world…yes she is
If you don’t believe me, take a look at the one you’re with
Woman is the slave of the slaves
Ah, yeah…better scream about it

We make her bear and raise our children
And then we leave her flat for being a fat old mother hen
We tell her home is the only place she should be
Then we complain that she’s too unworldly to be our friend

Woman is the nigger of the world…yes she is
If you don’t believe me, take a look at the one you’re with
Woman is the slave to the slaves
Yeah…alright…hit it!

We insult her every day on TV
And wonder why she has no guts or confidence
When she’s young we kill her will to be free
While telling her not to be so smart we put her down for being so dumb

Woman is the nigger of the world
Yes she is…if you don’t believe me, take a look at the one you’re with
Woman is the slave to the slaves
Yes she is…if you believe me, you better scream about it

We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance

Alegre’s Corner denies me free speech

 

Another rant by: BettyJean Kling

I got booted from Alegre’s Corner today!

Why?

Short answer- I think it had something to do with me telling her to stay in her fucking corner!

Just so I can have my say which she deprived me of. Apparently they can rake me over the coals but think I can’t fight back- next time send an email and let’s discuss it – I am not your ememy- I am not a troll- and I certainly did not deserve two days worth of your attacks on my character for expressing my opinion of what this means to democracy and to the woman’s movement – I am not alone!

For those of you who live in the real world and want to face facts here is my long answer.

I got booted from Alegre’s Corner today!

Why?

Because I expressed my concern that Hillary’s actions on behalf of the Democratic Party and Obama was wrong both because it clearly abrogated democracy and I felt it set back Women’s rights. She and her other guests did not simply disagree they launched an all out attack on me and probably others entitled When Hate and Revenge Overrule Reason and Results  when I attempted to rage back ( and believe me I was definately going to let them have it – my entry was removed as well as my ability to post on their site.

My point was – I love Hillary and I worked very hard for her but- Hillary decided that to support her party and the candidate that we all agree gained that position illegitimately and in doing so destroyed democracy and the sactity of the vote which many died for. I value my vote but thanks to the Dem party and those who support it – we no longer own our own votes!.

In January Illegal voters were bussed into Iowa-voters were intimidated into voting for Obama and called racists- when he won that night he played 99 problems (and the Bitch ain’t one) and he and his wife and two daughters danced out on the stage to the song! The Media the DNC and the pundits began telling Hillary to step down.  Let me say this again- He bussed in voters – he won Iowa illegally and the DNC began urging Hillary to step down within the month! The Party has used and abused her since 1992 and will continue to do so until they finally kill her — WAKE-UP! 

As for how this impacts us as a country -On May 31, 2008 we all watched Democracy itself be trampled upon- the disenfranchised voters from 2 states – hell thy took some of her votes and gave them to him- You folks attacking me ovdr at Alegre- who like to sign  “I own my vote” how ‘s that working for ya?

We fought like hell to get Hillary to Denver and we fought to get her on the Ballot- I am not sure what it is that I have to remind anyone of here- we all know damned well what the party did and why we should not be supported or enabling them to do this again to us to the people of the United States of America. If we should not – Hillary should not case closed!

All I did was make that case and remind them over there that to say “I OWN MY VOTE” and then back a party because you idolize a woman who chose to back a party who did this to her and to her country is tantamount to being an abused wife who goes back to your abusers for more! 

And I told them if they think they own thier own votes yet fawn over the party that denigrated the value of voting- well frankly they are full of shit and they better stay in Alegre’s fuckin corner.  

Not sure of my exact words- I was pretty hot by then but this is close- she removed my comment and me from her corner but not my freedom of speech!   

Thomas Jefferson said, “The price of democracy is eternal vigilance”

We believe our founders meant the government to be one of the people for the people and by the people not of the party for the party and by the party. The subscribers of The List while concerned about issues are more concerned about Democratic process that has been abrogated.

“Should the ISSUES, that have come to define the Democratic Party to democrats, be the reasoning we accept the party’s selected candidate? Even if it means sacrificing such PROGRESSIVE values of respect, honor, loyalty and democracy itself?

We are told to vote for a democrat to protect the Supreme Court, abortion, environment and human rights, issues, but what if it is fear mongering designed to keep us in line? What if issues usurp democracy as a means of achieving a goal of power over the concerned governed? Should it be rewarded with your vote by going with the party and in this case their selected not elected candidate? If citizens fall in line have they sold the long term goals of their values, for the temporally “hold us in line” issues that keep us fighting among
ourselves and under control?

These are salient questions to ponder because we are being asked to vote for a democratic candidate in November that was not elected by the majority of voters. We are being asked to Unite in the name of the party while the party did not a thing to help one of the best and strongest candidates during this primary. Why? I leave this for you to ponder and hopefully, begin asking question and challenge what just transpired in the democratic primary.”

Women Loose Again

Guest Post by: Janis Strope

Here’s the post I did on my blog the day after the Election. I don’t
think I shared it here then. In it, I tell women like it is, how
Obama didn’t stand up against sexism and misogyny under the brightest
lights and on the biggest stage, because *he didn’t have to*. There
are no consequences STILL for bashing women. And the women who are
squealing with joy that he won are fooling themselves if they think
he’ll do anything for women now:

http://spiral-gate.blogspot.com/2008/11/women-lose-again.html

As the first Socialist president elect prepares to take over America,
you women out there celebrating might want to take a moment to
consider what you’ve thrown away for the rest of us. Male domination
of the U.S. presidency and vice-presidency continues because women
will not support each other, and because too many of us are still
giving our power away to men, expecting them to give us what we could
so easily take for ourselves – with our votes and our numbers.

But we squander those votes and numbers again and again.

We keep men in power, and they know that they don’t have to do
anything to appease us because enough women go along with the tearing
down of other women that any outcry is muffled. They know the media
isn’t listening either. Not this election. They already had their
narrative, and it wasn’t about women, or covering the inconvenient
specter of misogyny that still hangs over the election.

Now we are muzzled again, our chance to create real change in womens’
representation at the highest levels of government gone. Poof!

Do you think Obama is going to work for womens’ advancement? Do you?

When Hillary was being trashed so horrifically, Obama said nothing.
When Ferraro was branded a racist, he said nothing. When Palin was
the victim of ugly rumors, frightening images of her being beaten, a
gun held to her head, and lynched in effigy, he said nothing.

And all that sexism and hate was on the brightest lit and biggest
stage in the world, with everyone watching.

He didn’t say anything because he didn’t have to. He knew he had your
votes in the bag. He had no incentive to put a stop to the horrible
abuse of good women because it was helping his campaign.

That should have made you furious. It should have offended you so
deeply that you’d still be soul-sick about it today. It should have
sent you running into the voting booth to pull the lever for the only
woman on a major ticket, and the decent man who stood up for her when
the media and the Obama-controlled Democratic Party went after her
with their sharp, woman-hating knives.

If any of you women who voted for Obama think he’s going to do
anything for us now that your votes are in the bank and the lights
are off, you are sadly and tragically wrong. When you wake up and see
that you are still making less than a man four years from now, let me
know how that change you can believe in worked out for ya, okay?

Of course I’ll be in the same underpaid boat with you, but at least I
didn’t vote to keep myself there by voting for Obama.

Contrast of Citizenry for Your Perusal

 

Although I do not know Citizen Larry Bumgarner- I am sending you a link to his hard work for your perusal. I wish him the best!

If Bill Ayers is afforded the space to write his bullshit wherein he laughs in the face of McCain and then both Hillary and Sarah as he asks us to swallow his crap all I can say is let’s give Bumgarner a soapbox of his own – he damned well deserves it more than a unrepentant terrorist!

No?

Below please find the latest from two citizens who choose to fight against our government. One man files a complaint that may never come to naught but he files it under the law and asks us to join him. The other who once chose to blow up buildings, kill innocent people, has taught our children to kill their parents from our so called esteemed universities, and even honored Bobby Kennedy’s assassin and was lauded as a great citizen for it and who now continues to chide us and laugh in our faces.

You decide!

You know Ayers past history now read his latest smack in the face from the shameless terrorist bastard! He wants Vitamin C he deserves arsenic.
