Pelosi: Women Were ´Starved,´
´Force-Fed,´ ´Could Barely
Speak in Their Homes´

Cybercast News Service, by Staff

Victims then, and victims now: American women were not "given" the right to vote. They had to fight for it, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told a conference call on Thursday. "It was a struggle all the way," she said. "Women marched. Women starved. Women were starved. Women were force-fed. Women could barely speak up in their own homes. "Women left their homes to take the message. And it was successful, and the right to vote, again, so precious, so hard fought...We hope women will continue to exercise forcefully, because then all of the issues we care about, whether it´s equal

Comments:
I can´t relate to this at all. I´ve traced my family history back several centuries. I come from a long line of rather strong, capable women.

She must be talking about what went on in her family with her father, her husband.

Even TODAY women are being abducted, raped, tortured, mutilated, stoned to death in the Muslim world. But not a peep out of Pelosi and her fellow Joans of Arc.

Watching women like Pelosi, Hillary, Debbie Washerwoman, Maxine Waters, etc..
maybe it was a mistake giving them the vote in the first place.
PS
I am female.
I´ll go step further, anyone who does not pay Federal Income tax should not be allowed to vote. We cannot continue to have freeloaders voting for the candidate who promises them more "free stuff".

And yet again, which party was opposed to giving women the vote and which party championed it? It´s right there in all the history books...Nancy Pelosi and her party forever remain on the wrong side of history.

My mother (born in 1906) told me they debated the question in school - "Should women have the right to vote?"

No starving etc. Freedom of speech was alive and well.

My Grandmother came here from Poland. She owned a small grocery store and several apartment buildings and built the business and bought the buildings all through her own hard work. Everyone, including men in the community, respected her. That is my experience. All of the women in my family worked and got themselves educated. The constant harping of "victimhood" is astonishing. The lying of the democratic politicians is frightening.

I wish to be educated...I thought the War of Independence was fought by men. It´s pretty well documented that men "fought for it", "Men marched", "Men starved", "Men left their homes".

Do we have documentation that women fought in the Revolutionary War? Otherwise I´m pretty sure Mrs. Pelosi has gender confusion.

Women did not fight to get the vote. There was already 14 states in which women were voting and in some cases running for statewide offices by the time Congress acted. As usual the Congress came late to the game and then tried to take credit for something that was already gaining momentum in the states.

What on earth is she talking about? It is true that yesterday´s society called for wives to obey their husbands and therefore many were silenced in their homes. Repressed. But "starved", "force-fed"? Is she talking about a hunger strike? Never heard about that.

Best to read the history of women´s suffrage in the United States rather than listen to crazy Nancy.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women´s_suffrage_in_the_United_States

The struggle for women´s suffrage in our country went on for far longer than most realize. And many men supported it.

Having done ancestry research, the women in our family from the 1600´s on were the driving force to make the families succeed. Ancestors from Germany, Ireland, Scotland and France settled the wilderness, became farmers, then small business owners, all while raising families. It was THEIR drive that brought my generation and then the children and grandchildren to be able to become educated and move on to a more comfortable life. They were matriarchs, and set high standards for all of us. If we stepped out of line, it was the grandmother that we feared the most! The men worked hard, too, but at least in my family, the women were the steady hands that kept the ship afloat during tough times.

Many men throughout history never went along with suppression of women no matter what "society" was saying. To Pelosi and whiny women like her, it´s all about their own insecurities. This is why the constant unattractive adversarial attitudes toward men. Thank you #11. Now there is a dose of reality that feminists should think about sometime as they enjoy their freedom!

I posted a treatise the other day, which explained why the founding fathers sat limits on whom were eligible to vote, and what happened when those ´standards´ were voided by constitutional amendments. Let´s see if I can give an abridged rendering of what I was getting at:

the framers of the constitution knew there were more stupid people in the world than smart ones. They also knew that the percentage of stupid women over smart women was much higher, when compared to the same ratio applied to men. That´s why they were disallowed from voting. Allowing women to vote drove the final nail in the coffin of the constitution.

Go ahead and yell . . ., I suggest you start with MALE CHAUVANIST! Than take a serious look at what I just wrote.

She talks about it being a gallantly lead fight for the right to vote.

But, then the Democrat party looks for every reason to diminish that hard-fought right by allowing anyone to vote without concern if they have the legal right to vote.

I say we ensure that Congress installs electronic fingerprint technology for voting. No one has to present any ID, we´d have it on-file.
This would be similar to the Iraqi´s who used purple ink to stain their fingers.

We´d be able to cross-reference to ensure no one voted more than once, or in any other district.

Very few women fought in our Revolution. Those who did usually disguised themselves as men. But women were spies (one of mine reported to Frances Marion and his troops the British movements, because they were fighting, she was running the family farm and raising the kids), they ran the family businesses and farms. The HBO series "John Adams" shows how instrumental Abigail was in our fight for freedom. She supported John, counseled him, raised the kids, and kept their income flowing while he worked on that Independence thing. Women have always worked hard alongside their husbands to keep this country going.

Not stupid, #22. Disinterest leading to ignorance would be more accurate. Even today: most women are not interested in, nor do they condone talking about politics. Too many simply follow the subliminal or overt messages from their entertainment media stars and vote accordingly. There is also an increasing number of young men who are about as bad.

As to SanFranNan: I´m torn whether it is stupidity, insanity, or deliberate lies. Probably some combination of all three.

Force feedings were associated with the suffragette movement in Britain at the turn of the twentieth century. A hallmark of that movement was disturbing the peace, acts of vandalism, assaults, which led to arrests. In jail the women would organize hunger strikes, and would then be force fed. I highly doubt this was remotely typical of American women´s experience.

Pelosi, starved of any fealty to this country´s actual history, is force feeding the usual histrionic bilge to the gullible, willfully gullible or otherwise.

Having grabbed from British history to pump up the rhetoric, why stop there, Nancy? Why not pilfer from Chinese history too and toss foot binding into the mix? "And women had to crawl to the voting booth because the men had bound their feet!!"

The point of the conference call was to promote the Democrats´ agenda, dubbed "When Women Succeed, America Succeeds." Democrats aim to win the female vote by casting women as victims who -- 94 years after the 19th Amendment was ratified -- are still in need of government help.

Does this mean that the feminist movement that began 50+ years ago has failed to live up to it´s goals? And, giving women the vote didn´t change a thing?

Or do Nancy and friends just like to have a victim class to rally every couple of years with the same old campaign song.

I think everyone 18+ should be allowed to vote.

But if we want a dose of reality, Pelosi should grab a microphone and a camera and interview women out on the street as to why they vote for who they do.

If they are frank, she´ll get answers such as "he spoke better", "he was more handsome", or "he was more in tune with women´s issues", whatever that means.

Women brought us not one but two terms with this Idiot-In-Chief, so I really am not in the mood to hear about how great the women´s vote is for this republic.

Women should have gotten the federal vote earlier. I must point out that in local elections, some communities allowed women with property to vote.

I´ve got my hand out. Where are my reparations? Yeah, give me some money. I´ve suffered terribly because my grandmother couldn´t vote until in her 40s. Psychological trauma. Feelings of inferiority.

And I want the entire country to do an Act of Contrition and then sit shiva for three days and rend their clothes and put ashes on their faces.

The country must be punished and the government must have hearings and do impact studies and issue an apology for the crimes Pelosi speaks of.

An unusual Republican proposal makes medical sense, kind of. Let it never be said that Republicans are fighting a Forever War on contraception. In several states, Republican candidates are calling for more birth control—on demand and sold right next to the Tylenol. "The pill ought to be available over the counter, round the clock, without a prescription,” says Colorado’s Cory Gardner in a new campaign ad. For the GOP candidates supporting this measure, it’s a way to woo women voters while sidestepping Obamacare’s mandate that companies cover birth control on their health-insurance plans—and that health plans offer the pills without

The presumed presidential candidate´s speeches are long on pablum and short on content. This is the campaign we´re in for. Everywhere Hillary Clinton goes, a thousand cameras follow. Then she opens her mouth, and nothing happens. Clinton made a much-ballyhooed appearance in Iowa over the weekend, giving a speech widely noted for its substancelessness.

These deaths are believed to be the first resulting from resistance to international efforts to curb the Ebola outbreak in the region, Reuters reported.

Any whiff of scandal from any American institution and you can bet CNN and The Washington Post will demand accountability, an investigation and full transparency.

But when it comes to a serious plagiarism scandal in their own house, CNN and the Post dummy up into a bunker mode that makes Goodell look like a singing canary.

MarketWatch reports today that President Barack Obama will exert tight personal control over US airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria. The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential sign-off for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. (snip) Yet the war against the Islamic State shows no sign of progress. Overnight, ISIS captured 16 villages in Syria. Ever since the 1970s, every time US forces have engaged in any overseas conflict on

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

First Lady Michelle Obama visited sick children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she complained about living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and being married to the president of the United States. She made the comments in response to being asked about her "favorite part about being in the White House." "About being in the -- about being First Lady is being able to do stuff like this, really. And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys," Michelle Obama started. "Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a

Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from Aug. 23 through Sept. 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.The urge to sever ties with Washington cuts across party lines and regions, though Republicans and residents of rural Western

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Great Recession showed that a large number of American families are "extraordinarily vulnerable" to financial setbacks because they have few assets to fall back on, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said Thursday Yellen said a Fed survey found that an unexpected expense of just $400 would force the majority of American families to borrow money, sell something or simply not pay.
