United States of America-WE ARE A SECULAR NATION--NOT A THEOCRACY--WE SHOULD NOT LET THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TURN US INTO A THEOCRACY




The Tea Party has intensified social pressure on conservative-leaning Americans to shun science and academia.

" Evolution is hardly the only scientific reality to suffer from conservatives' growing sense that their ideology is not compatible with science. In the short period between 2010 and 2012, the percentage of conservatives who accept global warming declined from half of conservatives to only 30 percent of them. That doesn’t reflect any kind of major shift in the evidence or the arguments around global warming--the scientific consensus that warming is happening and human-made has only solidified in the past couple of decades--so much as the strengthened perception that conservatism and believing in global warming are mutually exclusive. As the political media pays more attention to conservative distrust of science and liberal embrace of it, the image of who believes what will only intensify."

For the Good of America--the United States needs an intellegent workforce, which means Educating our Children is of vital importance. This can only happen if and when we American Parents get on the same page--Math and Science are too important Not To Study--It is bad enough that America has fallen behind. We need to work hard at catching up, Not Turn Back To The Dark Ages.
But, Most Importantly, This Election Should Be About the Economy--This Presidential Election Should Be about the ECONOMY, BUT Every time I turn around there is one Republican or an other Republican or group of Republicans saying something to take the attention AWAY From the Economy---Case in point-->

Rally for Healthcare Reform and to Stop Stupak at San Francisco City Hall From denying abortion to military rape victims, to aiming for total bans in the state, the GOP's assault continues. READ MORE





I DARE--I DOUBLE DARE--TRIPLE DARE--ANY ONE AND ABSOLUTELY ANYONE TO READ THIS ARTICLE AND TRY TO TELL ME THAT THE GOP HAS NOT DECLARED WAR ON WOMEN. 
After all, some things will not be changed without a fight, since I remember back when I was in the Army Reserve, which was during the Cold War Years--the 'Religious Right' even then, did far far more to DE-moralize Military women that the Soviet Union did. 
After all, I can still remember how it hurt--had cut like a knife in the heart-- 'the 700 club'--which I watched at the time along with as many other news as possible--since I was in PsyOp/Loud Speakers/Military Intelligence--it was part of my job to keep up with the news from as many angles as possible and then some; But back to my point--I remember how it was said that American men enlisted to make the United States Stronger while women like me--enlisted to make America Weaker, as if we women are not as patriotic as men are. 
IF ONLY The GOP(and Republican Voters) would wake up and smell the Coffee, the United States Does Not have the Population to field an All Male Air Force and an All Male Army and an All Male Marine Corps and an All Male Navy and an All Male Coast Guard--Most Especially An All Heterosexual Male Military, Unless there is a draft of 100% of the Male High School Graduates, which even then would have complications and would beg the question--how many of these Conservatives who do not support women/ Gays in the Military will then turn around and complain about their sons being drafted??


Eleanor Roosevelt understood that labor union fights are about giving people a voice -- not about partisan politics. READ MORE


 
Please Read, because this is why We Americans Need Strong Unions. After all, with Unions come a livable wage and a strong Middle Class. The Middle Class is the True Backbone of Society. After all, what good does it do a Business to make the best goods--No Matter how good they are or how cheaply made they were--those goods are worthless if there are no one or too few who can afford to buy them.

Oh, Where--Oh, Where is Eleanor Roosevelt when we Really Need Her!!!!


Potential VP Candidate Thinks Businesses Should Be Able To Fire Someone For Being Gay


Potential VP Candidate Thinks Businesses Should Be Able To Fire Someone For Being GayWASHINGTON, DC — Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), best known as the “boring” choice atop Mitt Romney’s vice presidential list, told ThinkProgress Thursday that he doesn’t believe it should be illegal to fire someone for being gay because doing so would make businesses less “comfortable.”
In an interview at the Faith & Freedom Conference, Portman explained why he opposes the Employee Non-Discrimination Act, which would ban firing someone because of his or her sexual orientation or gender identity. “What I’m concerned about in Paycheck Fairness and other legislation like that is the fact that it will spawn a lot of litigation the way the legislation is written,” the Ohio Senator said. He worried that the legislation “would make it more difficult for employers to feel comfortable.” READ MORE!!!!!

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE WORKMAN/WOMAN IS WORTHY OF THEIR WAGES?? BY WHAT STRETCH OF THE OVER ACTIVE IMAGINATION SHOULD A WORKER BE PAID FOR ANY THING OTHER THAN THE WORK THEY DO??? 

WARNING!!!WARNING!!! THIS IS WHERE I LOSE MY TEMPER!! After all, IF Any One Should Be Standing Up FOR TRUTH--FOR JUSTICE--FOR ONE AND ALL--IT SHOULD BE THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST--WHO IS THE WAY & THE THE TRUTH & THE LIFE, WHOM PEOPLE HAVE THE GOD GIVEN FREE WILL TO REJECT ALSO!! NOT, That there are alternative ways to be a Christian--but in a Secular Society we have the freedom to believe or not believe as we chose to.  
THIS is where I confess that I am too busy and wrapped up with what is happening in Ohio and the U.S. to even begin to solve other problems else where--I mean take a look at all our problem children--Is it any wonder that the best I can do for Greece and Russia and every other country is to hope and pray that their citizens do the best and the mature thing--in short Do Not Follow the U.S. Congress' example--do better-Please--Thank You.
