I believe women, particularly conservative women, need to have a voice in the fight. The feminist movement has become the voice of the left and all other women are left behind. The feminazis do not speak for me and nor should they be allowed to speak for other conservative women. Together we can take back our voice, our place in society, our country, and be heard above the raised voices of the left trying to shout us down!

Well, I would love to know how much money the GOP wastes on the endless emails I get asking for money? I have heard so many conservative friends say they are sick to death of the endless spamming from the GOP. I think along with less money, and voter turnout…there is a need to try a different approach to attracting voter support. Adding the word personal in ()‘s isn’t going to get me to open the email…especially when I look down my page and see that I have three of those with the same heading!

AWESOME! This was such a great piece and if makes me sad I never got to know this friend of yours. She certainly seems like the kind of hero I’d have loved to spend time getting to know!

Loved this piece! Excellent points there is a time to be outraged and this example from Men’s Health Article..is not one of them! I love sports…played in high school, played in college, Coached high school and Coached in College. I know plenty of stats considerably more than my non-sports watching husband!

Had Obama came out after being elected and stated something like, “Since I am a civilian and have never served, I do not feel it appropriate that I return salutes. I understand President Reagan started this tradition but I feel no sense of obligation to carry on with something that President George Washington would have objected…blah blah” then MAYBE it wouldn’t seem like such a rude gesture. There would still be those on the Right who would call him out but I could swallow his “I never served” logic much more easily than his ill attempts at demonstrating proper military bearing! Just my opinion as a veteran.

Heartbreaking to think these monsters could escape justice because justice wasn’t blind and took into consideration the religion, ethnicity, race, etc. of the perpetrators in-spite of the harm done to the victims.

Yes, it does seem that Americans are overwhelmed with one crisis after another…to the point they have become immune to them. I attended a Town Hall meeting recently held by our US Congressman and only around 65 people bothered to even show up…but you can bet hundreds or even thousands in the Congressman’s district will complain about the border issue on Facebook and elsewhere!

Great points…I had read her article and thought it was over kill to charge her with a crime. Had she been gone for half an hour or longer then yes it may have been criminal neglect…maybe…but not 5 minutes. What about the parent who lets her child take the subway alone at age 5? She is perfectly within her rights but many think it’s dangerous. A 4 year old is capable of getting out of the car if he or she is so hot it becomes dangerous and the risk of them being kidnapped is probably less than the risk of being shot by a robbery gone bad in the store.

It is a small thing but the fact they allow as little as a $1 to be donated is huge…Many people will not give $10 but almost everyone will give $1…so if you set the floor at $10 and reach 1000 people with 50% saying, “No thanks”…you have missed out on a possible $500 because maybe that 50% would have given $1…just my thoughts. It is also nice to see an artist giving back in a positive way!

Excellent points Shannon…just as you admitted you could not speak for all children raised in single mom households…Whoopi and View Crew…should also realize they cannot speak for ALL children in single parent/mom homes. Trying to say that a woman can do everything a man can do or that a man can do everything a woman can do is simply a lie. Great article
Shannon E. Grady commented on Rape, Self-Defense, and a Culture of Feminist Lies 2014-06-13 01:24:22 -0400
Cate, I don’t think anyone including Miss Nevada is insinuating that learning self defense is a solution for stopping rape. I think we all understand that it is a cultural attitude which puts women in danger. (However, there are also individuals who just have psychological disorders that preclude it being merely about cultural up bringing…some rapist are simply monsters and no amount of “retraining” or “reconditioning” would make a difference) Going back to your point, yes we need to stop the idea that a woman in a short skirt has given her consent to have sex by virtue of what she is wearing. However, this will NOT happen in the next 5 maybe even 10 years…so what are the ladies who are living through this “cultural training era” suppose to do while we wait for boys and men to learn to “know better”? I think learning self-defense is a wise course of action not only to help prevent rape but also assault and other acts of violence that are perpetrated on women by other women as well as men.
