Accomplishments of women should be celebrated

Posted: March 23, 2012 - 8:29am

Culturally, International Womens Day, Week, Month and Year and the many accomplishments of women around the world need to be emphasized more by our news media. Maybe men would begin to realize the value of including women in discussions of their health concerns, maybe the ignorance and hatred for women expressed by our Republican leader Rush Limbaugh would begin to be minimized, maybe male politicians would understand the damage being done to our world by Rush Limbaugh, Karl Rove, Republican governors, John Boehner, Mitch O'Connell, Eric Cantor, maybe Democratic men would not be so afraid of criticising Rush Limbaugh, maybe men would become aware they are being left behind and young children are being damaged by their attitudes. Already the world is becoming a better place because more women are showing up, stepping up, asserting themselves and making good things happen around the world. Wake up men, take your heads out of the sand and get with it.

Read the latest Newsweek. Listen to the news. Push for President Obama, our Commander in Chief, and Leon Panetta, Secretary of Defense, to remove Rush Limbaugh's program from Armed Forces Radio. Just maybe the number of sexual assaults against women taking place in our armed forces might decrease and our world might become a much better place. The number of sexual assults and domestic abuse cases in Alaska might also go down.

Maybe we should....

Maybe we should vote against ALL liberal democrats (especially our illegal, unatural born and noncommander-in- chief impostor president) and get them out of office?

Maybe we should elect Rush Limbaugh into office?

Maybe we should recognize women who need recognized for the good they have done (Betty Ford, Sarah Palin, Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Janice Brewer, Rosa Parks, Ann Coulter)

Maybe we need to recognize the women for the evil damage and destruction they have caused to society (Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Ilse Koch, Michele Obama-mama, Diane Not-So-Fienstein, Oprah Winfrey, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Odonnell, Ellen Degenerres, Aileen Wuornos and finally Rachael Maddow)

Maybe we should print your story and put it to good use in the nearest outhouse?

I agree that women need more

I agree that women need more support for violent actions commited against them.
I did notice the slick way you are trying to garner more power for getting Obama & other Govt. involved in censorship of free speach. More control from the master controller seeking a OWO and Hearlded as the Chosen One to bring it about is not whats needed here, Thank You. Please forgive me if i misread your intentions here.
If ya don't like whats being said don't watch or listen to it. I will say that what Rush has said is totally uncalled for & very inappropriate, but i have never listened to him on anything.

I did see this morning that Canada has a booming sale of a New book on how to abuse your wife and get away with it. It's a Muslim best seller and something that is becoming more of a problem WORLD wide due to the mind set of it's ok, we can't interfer or pass laws that regulate or restrict Islamic law.
How can women, children or anyone ever obtain equal rights when this type of behavior is not only excepted, but allowed to be sold as a training book to commit it further?

Governments can regulate books & stand by it's nations laws to protect women, instead of buckeling under to sharia law obediante muslims. My question is this if they are allowed to beat & kill their women under their laws that we refuse to stop here in OUR nation, what will they try to impose next under sharia law?

Lets take for instance what the wannabe black leader Al Sharpton, who is actually a racist trouble maker said about Blacks being under attack by this young black man being murdered by a hispanic in Fl.
What a crock that is. Yes Travon was murdered, but every day black kids are murdered by other blacks all across America, not only that, all colors are murdered each day some where. So if anyone is under attack, it's all of us humans, but you don't see this wannabe supposed Reverand Al Sharpton saying anything about all thes others. He only pipes in when it's a black person killed by a nonblack person, for the spreading of HATE, nothing else.

What we have here is really a desire to abuse & even kill every humanbeing on earth, no matter race, gender or age.

Actually a war is being waged on all of creation by the powers that rule in high places, powers of darkness, and these powers are using us to accomplish this end. We humans out of selfish desires hurt & kill others for a plethra of reasons, many of which actually result in wars world wide.
If ya want to read this accusation against govts. & the powers that rule them read Ephesians 6:12 and James 4; shows that our own desires of self is another main problem.
Why isn't this being shouted out from wannabe freedom & justice for all leaders? They really don't give a flip about anyone, only want to line their pockets with filthy luker and power status.

So in reality what we need is a desire to put others first in life, a change of heart & love for others like Dr Martin L. King tried to spread, not this hate from Al Sharpton or Rush either or anyone else for that matter.
If we start restricting what people can say we will soon be regulating people like me that advocate the Love of Joshua, Yeshua as well, even to the point of relagating it to hate speach. It's already happening in OUR nation, this desire to regulate the love of Christ.

This problem of hate is not only against women, it's against everyone no matter what race, color, gender or age one might be, and it's spreading like wildfires everywhere with the intent to distroy ALL LIFE.

I read your comment, and I think you may have been suckered by the current administration and upcoming islam religion (and NO I will NOT capitalize the letter "I" in islam..) to use the term HATE too much in your opinion brief. I agree that the muslims actually HATE the infidels. But I do not HATE them...I think most red blooded Americans don't HATE muslims, we just don't appreciate their beliefs of crappy, evil, destructive, terroristic, satanic, violent and murderous ways.

But we don't hate them...

I see OUR thumbs down

I see OUR thumbs down advocate was here and as usual has nothing of any real importance to say about this very serious issue against women, as well as every humanbeing. But he has left his mark with a thumbs down for what i said.

So does this surprise me or others? Not in the least, it's his signature argument to follow many posts with his warped opinion of what reality is and his personal fight againt the Truth of reality that a blind deaf person can see clearly.

Hate comes in many forms & can be detected by many actions, i know, as i fight daily the desire to fall into the hate for others by traps set at every turn by some that thrive on it, and wish to spread it's deadly plague everywhere.

A plague, this plague of hate for others thats getting worse every second of every day.

Have a GR8 Day, and remember who loves ya, that would be Joshua, Yeshua, the one you hate most of all that loves you and died for you. Yeshua, the one that Dr Martin L. King died trying to be all people to Hope in for that Fundamental Change to Believe in, the Only True Hope of Change.

Wanna bet i get another thumbs down on this opinion concerning the Truth about Love & Hate?

What is this even about?

What a terribly written article. What exactly is the author advocating for? Being a democrat? If so, he didn't really make his case. Some non-specific vitriole against one political party, some equally vague cheers for Obama, and somehow it's supposed to be about women...

Try this. Discuss some specific legislation that you feel is helpful to women and why. Or discuss some specific legislation that you feel is hurtful to women and why. Cite pilot studies that demonstrate the impacts of such laws, programs or traditions. Identify the legal or cultural barriers that you feel are standing in the way of women's empowerment and what it takes to overcome them, and be prepared for feedback of possible negative consequences to this as well.

There are very few social institutions that exist without any reason. Sometimes these reasons are outdated. Sometimes the benefits of change do not justify the costs, or sometimes the benefits simply aren't equitable. Sometimes the same benefits can be achieved in other ways. The only way to find out is to be specific about your convictions and invite discussion. Remember that there are almost always pro's and con's to every situation, so be prepared to hear the con's against your position. That is, once you figure out exactly what you have a position on.

jimh: You will be seeing MANY diversionary letters, written by liberal democrats. You see, they elected absolutely to worst president in the history of our Nation.

They see the financial instability and destruction he has caused. He made Bush look like a King!

Now, with election time around the corner, they have got to find a way to divert the masses of uneducated, lazy, jobless folks into voting for him again.

The liberals used Racism as their first weapon of choice for his election: "If you did not vote for obama, it was because you were a racist".

Now, they have to get even more strategic: That is why the whole Trayvone shooting is in the paper ... and now we read about his hero liberal women activist. If he suckers women to agreeing, then of course you will have to vote obama!

What he does not see, is that MOST liberal women are absolutely racist (Whoopi, Oprah) or are detrimental to America (Feinstein, Hillary).

Hopefully people won't be as stupid as they were back in 2009...but then again, our nation is filled with uneducated idiots...
