A Republican War On Women – ‘Gov. Corbett: Reform Liquor Laws So It’s Easier For Women To Make Dinner’   1 comment

*reads blog article below* …there are no words here. No wonder Gov. Corbett’s in such dire shape politically speaking…

Too bad all you women are too busy doing all that shopping but the Governor of Pennsylvania has the soultion to all your problems…….

‘Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) thinks his state should reform its liquor laws. That way, he argued, women would have an easier job making dinner’.

‘Corbett made the argument in July during an appearance on The Sam Lesante Show. The clip of him making those comments were reposted Tuesday by the Democratic political PAC Fresh Start PA, which supports Corbett’s opponent Tom Wolf (D)’.

WTF2

“I think a lot of people want to be able to walk into a grocery store,” Corbett said. “Particularly, a lot of the women, want to be able to go in and buy a bottle of wine for dinner, go down buy a six pack or two six packs, buy dinner, and go home. Rather than what I just described, is…

What’s Going On In Kansas?   Leave a comment

Politically speaking, Kansas is as about as red a red state can be..on the surface, that is. Inside, not so much.

Why? Well, there are two statewide races of note this year in the Sunflower State: (1)the Kansas Gubernatorial election involving deeply unpopular Gov. Sam Brownback, who seems to be in a fight for his life opposite Democratic challenger Paul Davis, and (2)the Kansas Senate election, a three-way race between equally unpopular incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts and challengers Chad Taylor (D) and independent Greg Orman.

Most years, odds are both Brownback and Roberts would be cruising to re-election but this is not one of those years; if current polling for both races (KS Gov. & KS Sen.) holds up, Democrats’ could have a better-than-even shot of knocking off either Brownback or Roberts (and that’s just for starters: in a head-to-head btwn. Roberts & Orman, Orman easily dusts Roberts in November) Given how close the overall margins for control of the Senate are going to be this November, an Orman win all-but-sinks GOP hopes in that regard. 

Make no mistake: these are definitely two of the races one should be watching from now on through Election Night 2014.

Watch as Short Film Exposes Severe Abuses and A Human Rights Disgrace

By Melanie Nathan, August 27, 2014.

Global Rights, Partners for Justice is doing work for LGBT Human Rights in Africa, bringing into focus the plight of gay people in Cameroon: “In Africa, homosexuality is illegal in 38 of the continent’s 54 countries and punishable by death in four. In Cameroon, people are prosecuted for consensual same-sex conduct more than in any country in the world, and in many cases, people are charged with “homosexuality” based on extremely scant and specious evidence. For example, a Cameroonian judge convicted two transgender people in 2011 of practicing homosexuality because they were spotted drinking a particular liqueur that the judge deemed “a woman’s drink.” (Global Rights, Partners for Justice)

The legal basis in Cameroon for prosecuting homosexuals is Article 347 of the Cameroonian Penal Code, which…

Michael Klonsky: Who Is Sucking the Oxygen Out of Classrooms?   Leave a comment

Diane Ravitch's blog

Mike Klonsky knows who is sucking the oxygen out of classrooms and killing the joy of learning: Arne Duncan.

Don’t take Mike’s word for it. Arne confessed. He said he would give schools a one-year reprieve from his testing mandates. One year to breathe deep and suck in some real oxygen. Then he returns to take your oxygen away again. Makes sense, no? No.
