It appears that Virgina Senator McDougle’s (R) support for trans-vaginal ultrasound legislation has not gone over too well with at least a few folks, judging from the raunchy comments being left on his Facebook page. Staff has caught wind of the comments and have now deleted them all. But some smart cookie got some nice screen shots before the censoring commenced. Here are a few quotes as well as some screen shots. Some very creative people out there. Kudos to you all!
That’s right. You read the title correctly. Senate Bill 507, introduced by Senator Grothman (R-West Bend) on February 23, 2012, would require the Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board to emphasize that non-marital parenthood is a contributing factor to child abuse and neglect. Single parents make up a third of all Wisconsin parents. Once again, I am livid! What the hell is going on in our country? We seem to be going backwards in time as people’s rights start disappearing.
THE INVISIBLE WAR is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of our country’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within our US military. Today, a female soldier in Iraq and Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire with the number of assaults in the last decade alone in the hundreds of thousands.

Oklahoma women yesterday marched on the state capitol to protest a Senate bill that would grant a fetus full 'personhood' at the moment of conception.
The bill sailed through the state Senate a few weeks ago and reportedly is expected to pass in the Republican-controlled House as well. Governor Mary Fallin (R), who has signed other anti-abortion bills, is expected to sign the "Personhood Act" if it gets to her desk.
The arrests include four people in Spain, ten in Argentina, six in Chile and five in Colombia as part of a worldwide sweep carried out as part of Interpol operation “Exposure.”
The American Life League released an absurd (and unintentionally hilarious) propaganda video meant to smear Planned Parenthood. In this video, Planned Parenthood is actually called “these perverts”; is accused of selling pornography to children under the name of science; and the gateway drug is masturbation. The speaker, Michael Hitchborn, actually tries to correlate how a drug dealers goal is to make drug addicts, Planned Parenthood’s goal is to make sex addicts.
Private prisons are one of the largest corporations in history to profit directly from the misery of people, and now they want to buy out state-ran facilities. The main stream media is not helping matters either as they simply sweep the details under the rug, and promote the false notion that criminals get what they ask for. Most American citizens live under the philosophy simply because they grew up hearing, “Lock them up and throw away the key.” What would you think if you found out that most of the inmates in private prisons really do not belong there? Not in prison, anyway. Laws are being created due to the heavily financed lobbying by CCA and GEO Group which are purely passed to increase the prison population. Why? Because for every inmate housed, those who own stock in a private prison profit each day per each inmate. There are no losses… pure profit.
LOVE this photoshopped image! Found this on a site called, SnarkySnatch, and it is just perfect! Hey, fair is fair. If only…. (sigh).
Ladies – and men who support women’s rights – a war has started by the Republicans which will set us back hundreds of years. Time to stand firm and let the public hear your voice. I am woman, hear me roar!
Now, first of all, this is a satirical post from the website Free Wood Post. However, after this article went viral, so many people questioned it’s validity that snopes even researched and posted that it, “…is not something actually uttered by Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum….” Although this is hilarious, it is also very sad that we have a man running for the GOP POTUS candidacy who is so off the chain, that so many citizens actually thought it may by true!
Antonio Darden, a popular stylist who runs Antonio’s Hair Studio in Santa Fe, said he cut Martinez’ hair three times, but that’s it – unless she changes her mind about gay marriage.
That is IT! I have HAD it up to my pre-menopausal eyeballs! Ladies, and men who support women and see us as your equals, it is time to get MAD! Or get even MADDER! Time to be vocal, time to stand up for our rights!!! I am going to rant, and I mean rant hard! This may end up being a babble-fest, but damn it, I’ve got to get this off my chest. Or should I say breasts, as I am a woman and freakin’ damn proud of it!
Last night when I posted about the protests at the Westminster, I also included the image below which has the blurred out dog in the middle. The original image was not blurred out but featured a cute little puppy. Today, I received an email from a very kind woman, who I will call “Jayne Dough”, who informed me that she originated that graphic by using a photo of a puppy she found on the internet.
First, though, the winner of Best in Show was the Toy Group winner, a Pekingese: Ch Palacegarden Malachy. My house mate, Lyn, was pleased with the decision, and apparently she knows the owner of the Peke. Lyn said the dog was very deserving of the win, and since Lyn is the professional in this household, I will take her word for it. Personally, I thought Malachy looked like an alien. I was rooting for the Dobie. Now, on to the protests, both Dogs against Romney and the PETA women who barged into the show ring with signs….
The “Houston Free Thinkers” is a self-proclaimed civil liberties organization, and on January 27th, they were having a party. The party was located in the middle of a residential area at place called The Compound in Third Ward. Over 200 people were present and three bands were playing. The neighbors complained about the noise and called in the police.
February 1 2012 the entire parliamentary group of The Movement of the Icelandic Parliament nominated Private Bradley Manning for the Nobel Peace Prize. Following is the reasoning they sent to the committee explaining why they felt compelled to nominate Private Bradley Manning for this important recognition of an individual effort to have an impact for peace in our world.
McDonald’s very foolishly ran a radio ad in the midwest which said, “Trying a brand new menu item at McDonald’s isn’t risky. You know what’s risky… petting a stray pit bull…” Naturally, this created an outburst from the owners of pit bulls, formally known as American Staffordshire Terrier or the Stafforshire Bull Terrier in England. Especially angry, and rightly so, are those owners which rescued a stray or an abandoned pit.
This is a superb and magnificent letter written from a former slave to his former master in a response to a request to return as a “free” man and employee, no longer as a slave. When I reached the apex of the letter, which is a request of “some proof that you were disposed to treat us justly and kindly”, I laughed out loud with rejoice and respect for the writer’s forethought to do so – in addition to being a passive way of humiliating the former slave owner.
Meet Linda. Breast cancer survivor. Double mastectomy. Has lived through to hell and back from breast cancer and has a few words to say. Here Linda will give you the most heroic reponse to The Susan G. Komen Foundation you will ever see. If you have not seen this, please watch.
Recently, there have been two incidences at two separate schools in Georgia where slavery and racism have been openly displayed. The first was when a teacher used slaves in several math problems on the test. And just recently, a teach participated in a “slave game” being played by the students.
Talk about timing…. This story below came across my Facebook wall just a short while ago. It claims to be true, but I do not know the origin. Regardless, I believe you will enjoy the ending.
On the eve of the second anniversary of the much-despised Citizens United ruling, activists with the Other 98% and Backbone Campaign put a giant dollar sign light projection, along with a few other messages, on the Supreme Court building to protest the ruling that undermined government of, by and for the actual people by defining corporations as people and money as speech.

Think about this folks…. The government and the lackey politicians have been carrying on that the country needs SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and PIPA (Protect IP Act) in order to stop piracy of copyrighted materials. If we are in such dire need of these two acts, then how did the Fed take down Megaupload and duly make arrests?
The Keystone XL pipeline was denied today by Obama – at least for now. TransCanada will be allowed to refile. This is hailed as a huge victory by those opposed to the pipeline, and I am sure the earth, environment and wildlife appreciate this as well.
I checked out #keystone on Twitter a while ago and just happened to catch Boehners tweet that Obama is killing thousands of jobs. Well, horse hockies! Do people really buy this line of crap? And as if this is the only source of jobs available in this country? First of all, bring back all our jobs that are now overseas – such as the 200,000 jobs displaced to China via Wal-Mart. This alone will well exceed Boehners over-inflated amount of jobs from the Keystone XL pipeline. I just bet that ol’ Sam Walton is turning over in his grave since he did found his company on the belief of all Made in the USA products – then his money-grubbing children changed all that. What about a combination of American companies, not just Wal-Mart? The Economic Policy Institute, a Washington think tank, says American companies have created 1.4 million jobs overseas in 2010. More…
By far, this is the best summaries I have seen yet about why it is important to stop SOPA/PIPA….
It’s not a coincidence that the Global Democracy Movement is happening now, just as technology is emerging to allow the People to stand up to military dictators and banking oligarchies using Facebook and Twitter. You see, the fate of democracy and the fate of the Internet are intimately linked. This is why the movement to stop SOPA has been so powerful, and, this is why it must succeed. ~ Eric Byler http://www.coffeepartyusa.com/sopa
