You go girl!


I’ve been proud because I’m assuming that women came out in this election and said…enough is enough.  I’m giving our gender the credit for booting out some of those who are trying to enslave us again. It’s about time.  I just couldn’t believe some of the stuff that came out of some of these politician’s mouths and they thought it was OK.  The stuff about rape, abortion and family planning. I sometimes had to check my calendar to make sure it really was 2012.  Then I’d do a quick mental status exam on myself to make sure my switch hasn’t snapped. Not easy to do on myself.  I might be a bit biased scoring that test. 

Women often disappoint me, seriously disappoint me.  They too often kick their sister’s in the face to stand by their man.  Not even their man, just any old man.  This country wouldn’t put up with some of the awful things that are said about women if it were said about any other minority and we aren’t even a minority.  I think we may even be a tad over half of the population.  The fact that Rush L still has his fat A on the radio proves that.  We have the power but don’t recognize it and we don’t use it. 

I saw little Malala on TV this morning.  She’s the little girl in Pakistan who was shot in the head trying to stand up for the right of girls to get an education. That’s true courage.  That’s what got me pondering on this subject.  She’s recovering, thank God.  She is certainly one of our powerful teachers.  You go girl!  Now, it’s time for the rest of us to get moving.

Great post, Carol.

We need all the good women roll models we can get. IMO, the United States would be an even better place with more women in government and other positions of power.

They provide a better balance and eventually change the landscape in the division of power (and financial benefits, as well as respect) between males and females.

Lovin' your upbeat attitude. Like I said before, it's contagious.

Chloe Falls said...

You too, Jan.
Always have found your attitude very uplifting.

Hope you and yours are doing well.

I went with my granddaughter and GGD (2 1/2 y/o) to a Build a Bear shop. That is quite an enterprise. GD picked out a pink kitty with a huge head - called "Hello Kitty" They blew in the stuffing while she watched. Then GD picked out some clothes for the kitty. This is not cheap. Someone had a good idea. It was fun and she loved it. Afterwards I took us out for lunch.

How about a pink kitty pic or some snow pics? Both sound nice to me.

I don't understand why Petraeus had to resign. We've already voted that affairs were OK, even those with a baby and abortion. Just don't add rape into the mix.

I agree, Carol. With all the time he's served this country... this story must be devastating him and everyone else involved (speaking of both families).

... and the timing is so weird.
