Meet the New Class: The
Senate Swears in a Historic
20 Female Senators

ABC News, by Sullen Miller

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 1/3/2013 8:06:05 AM

Today the Senate will make history, swearing in a record-breaking 20 female senators – 4 Republicans and 16 Democrats – in office. As the 113th Congress is sworn in today on Capitol Hill, ABC "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer has an exclusive joint interview with the historic class of female Senators. Diane Sawyer´s complete interview will air on World News this evening. "I can´t tell you the joy that I feel in my heart to look at these 20 gifted and talented women from two different parties, different zip codes

Comments:
FTA "...that women´s styles tend to be more collaborative," You see, men are different than women. Except when they´re not. And don´t you dare mention it. That is sexist. But then women are "less confrontational" except when they are not. I love the logic of women!

SAid to my wife this morning; and lived to tell y´all about it- that we made two mistakes in America:

We chose not to harvest our own crops.

We thought that women could handle the repsonsibility of voting.

Wrong, wrong wrong...........present company excepted of course but if I had to sacrifice your vote to regain the America we all knew and love I´d do it in a heartbeat.

Well, as angry as we all are at congress, perhaps realizing that these men will have to deal with all these women pmsing at the same time will be some comfort.

Seriously? Why don´t we judge these women on their performance rather than their gender. I have a feeling that these women have more cajones than some of the GOP men.

Pardon my overt sexism but why is this a news story? What is is about women that everytime they do anything, they want special recognition?

Unless, of course, it involves staying home and raising their children.

The democrats are rapidly destroying our country and ABC is crowing about the number of women in the Senate. God what an awful organization ABC is. Aptly named writer, too, Sullen.

God help us.

Query: What makes conservative women so intelligent and liberal women so blasted stupid (especially the purportedly "book smart" ones with "Professor" in front of their names. See, e.g., Warren, Elizabeth)?

I demand answers.

"... more collaborative," Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said by nature women are "less confrontational."

Sen-elect Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, says that women are "problem solvers."

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., says that women have a camaraderie which helps in relationships that are key to negotiations on Capitol Hill, something she says comes natural to women more than men.

Uh huh, oh yeah, you betcha, sure thing, without a doubt, no question about it, whatever you say, dear. [Did I just arrive from Mars or am I to disregard everything I´ve observed since the first day 60 years ago when I first attended co-ed kindergarten?]

You watch. It´ll come down to the pants vs. the skirts as gals have taken to heart "save the women and children!" leaving men on deck to sink with the ship. Men are inferior wastrels after all, no? Animals-- deserving of uproarious crotch-kicks.

Cat fights, cliques, snubbing, back-stabbing. Yeah, girls get along great. Maybe not as overt and violent as the males, but it´s still there.
I´ll be glad when we stop having this all "historic" nonsense. Wait, what, it´s not ever going to stop? (sigh)

I agree that it´s too bad that after all these years a story like this is still news.

I am, however, glad to see some Republican faces among the female Senators. Let´s hope they indeed have the cajones (as #4 says) to keep their lefty sisters´ ideas in check.

Does this mean they will stop blaming white men for all the problems in the world? Does this mean when they do the same thing they usually do (women certainly haven´t proven to be effective in cutting spending, just the opposite) that the Kneepad media will put the blame on them and not the men? Does this mean that the killing spree in Chicago will suddenly stop? Does this mean that the welfare state will suddenly come under control? Will unlimited unemployment welfare stop? Of course not. All this means is we have a new set of incompetents with no desire or intent to actually goobern.

It´s not their gender that matters, it´s their policies and their ability to lead. I´d take 100 Margaret Thatchers in our Senate over one moderate male RINO.

I attended a Pennsylvania Bar Institute training session in 1980, the only non lawyer present.
And during the lunch break, I sat with several female and male lawyers. We had a discussion about the increase of women practicing law, and I offered the comment that with more women attorneys, perhaps legal conflicts, especially divorce proceedings, would become more gentle.
A woman lawyer glared at me, and said that when she represents a woman in a divorce proceeding, she will rip off the husband´s testicles to win.
I stopped talking.

Voting against Bushes is an act of love
Daily Caller, by W. James Antle III    Original Article
Posted By: jackson- 4/18/2014 8:23:53 AM     Post Reply
A popular online dictionary offers four definitions for the word “bushed.” The first is “overgrown with bushes.” The second is “exhausted, tired out.” The third is a Canadian colloquialism meaning “mentally unbalanced as a result of prolonged residence in a sparsely inhabited region.” Each of these definitions seems to describe the Republican Party’s feeling about the Bush family. If that’s not true and the GOP nominates Jeb Bush for president — the third Bush since 1988 — then perhaps the fourth definition applies: “unable to find one’s direction; lost; confused.” There’s a case to be made that George H.W. Bush is an underrated president,

An unexpected lesson in diversity

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

Obama taps gay bishop to wrap Easter

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity. The crowd immediately started

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016. Forget political dynasties -- Bushes, Kennedys and, yes, Clintons -- the former first lady told NBC last year. "We´ve had enough Bushes." She also said: "There are a lot of great families, and it´s not just four families or whatever." Listen to your mother, Jeb.Heed her words well, Hillary. My sweetest dream for 2016 would be for a bipartisan pact: that 2016 will not be a sequel to the 1992 Bush-Clinton faceoff. Is it a deal, Dems? I won´t vote for Bush if you

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying. This speech recalls last December’s address where the former KGB chief spoke of Russia as standing against a decadent West: “Many Euro-Atlantic countries

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
