This past week was a big one for GOP women. Both Mia Love and Barbara Comstock won nominations to run for Congressional seats in Utah and Virginia respectively.

I recently read an article on PolicyMic called "17 Lies We Need to Stop Teaching Girls About Sex". I was led to this article by a link on my Facebook page that both Planned Parenthood and Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, had posted.

Obamacare is a dismal failure no matter how much gloss NBC tries to put on it. The amateurish foreign policy of the current regime is truly scary to everyone. And Obama's most loyal followers are mired in high unemployment, reduced welfare spending instead of sky-rocketing increases, and a general sense of being ignored.
A young girl attending the "Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" event at the White House handed her unemployed father's resume to Michelle Obama during a question and answer time.
