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.

In October 2014, the first patient on American soil infected with the Ebola virus sits in isolation in a Texas hospital, prompting calls for travel restrictions between the United States and Ebola-stricken countries. Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States. The CDC had proposed the regulations in 2005 under the administration of George W. Bush, reported USA Today in 2010. The

AUSTIN -- A divided federal appeals court ruled Thursday evening to allow Texas´s tough new abortion regulations to take effect, a decision that is expected to force all but seven clinics in the state to close. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals at least temporarily reversed a decision by a local judge who struck down two provisions of the law as unconstitutional in August. The order signed by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith found that Texas officials were likely to ultimately win their appeal in defense of

As many as eighty (80) people may have had contact with the Liberian Ebola patient who is now is isolation at a Texas hospital, Dallas health officials told MSNBC on Thursday. (snip) "The CDC over the last several weeks to months have been really putting out the message that when people come in with symptoms that are compatible with Ebola, that it´s important to ask for a travel history, and to factor that into what your decision is. Unfortunately that did not happen in this case. I think we just need to put that behind us, and look ahead --

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

Another weird Obama pronunciation

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
