The best way that I can describe this blog is that it is as complex as I am. After all, I have many interests, many concerns and a few 'pet peeves'(otherwise known as issues that I am still dealing with) and a thing or two that just simply 'IGNITES' this Czech/German/Polish Temper.
This is where I testify that I am alive and part of the whole world and to save other people from repeating my mistakes and/or bad experiences.

Monday Evening's Call to my Fellow Americans--my Fellow Independents--my Fellow Women
Politico reports that Republicans are busily hatching a plan to try
and gut the Affordable Care Act should the Supreme Court ultimately
uphold its constitutionality. Given that the GOP has made it clear it
has no interest in providing policy solutions that serve women and their
health care needs, it’s a good time to remember just how much women
gained with passage of the ACA.
Right now the law allows millions of women to get preventative
services like mammograms and colonoscopies without a co-pay, and it also
prevents insurance companies from dropping anyone’s coverage simply
because they are sick. When other provisions of the law kick in later
this year millions more women will have access to well-woman exams and
birth control without a co-pay. All health plans will have to include
maternity care. Once the law is fully implemented, insurance companies
won’t be able to charge women higher premiums than men.
With all these benefits on the line, it’s no wonder women are speaking up to let Congress know we will not be denied access to critical health care services.
Of course, the GOP and their candidate Mitt Romney are not 'Anti-Women's health care' or 'Anti-Women's Rights' or 'Anti-Equality'.

Ok! that does it, Now I have got to read the book.
In other words, when a
woman is paid less than a man for doing the same work, does the
presumptive Republican nominee support her right to fight for the equal
pay she's guaranteed under the law? That's exactly what the bill that
bears my name ensures -- it simply gives workers a fair shot to make
their case in court. . . .

(CNN) -- Congress is reaching a point where it will
no longer be able to function at all. Over the past two years, some
members of the Republican Party have ramped up the partisan wars on
Capitol Hill. They are threatening to bring the legislative process to a
For many years,
journalists and scholars have lamented the rise of partisan polarization
on Capitol Hill. The number of moderates has vastly declined and the
number of bills that receive bipartisan support has greatly diminished.
The usual culprits range from the advent of the 24-hour news cycle to
changing demographics. . . .
