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.

Tuesday Morning Post--As This Election Gets Uglier and Uglier--Thanks to the Republicans and To the Christian Taliban.
Welcome to Dispatches,
your round-up of the latest news
from the frontlines of
the War on Women. Have a
story from your state or an
idea on how to push
back? Share them here and
fight back against the War on Women. Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) did the unthinkable in conservative politics: he said publicly what
should only be said in private. For Akin this happened during an
interview when he claimed that science backed up his assertion that it
is very difficult for a woman to get pregnant via a “legitimate” rape
because her body can magically shut it down. Of course, this is not
true. But that hasn’t stopped conservatives like Akin and Vice
Presidential candidate Paul Ryan from using it to justify banning
abortion in all contexts. There’s been an uproar over Akin’s comments,
but so far Akin insists he staying in the race. And the real story with
Akin isn’t what he said, but the fact that it represents the truth among
conservative circles.Read more!!!
This blame the victim mentality should have ended in the 18th century. The one we should have out grown decades upon decades ago---WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE PEOPLE BLAMING THE VICTIM--WHETHER WE ARE TALKING MURDER OR RAPE OR WHATEVER--IS WRONG--NO ONE CAN BE EXPECTED TO EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED 24/7--THE ONLY WAY TO STAY 100% SAVE IS TO LOCK YOURSELF AWAY 24/7--BUT THAT IS BEING A PRISONER--NOT LIVING--THAT IS WHY THIS MUST END--THE REPUBLICAN REIN OF TERROR MUST END!!!!
Rep. Todd Akin’s (R-MO) spiritual mentor Reverend D. James Kennedy
harbored extreme and sometimes flatly misogynistic views about rape and
abortion, according to a ThinkProgress review of Kennedy’s sermons on
the topic. The Senate candidate, who set off a massive controversy by claiming this weekend that victims of “legitimate rape” don’t get pregnant, has deep ties to Reverend Kennedy, having cited some of his sermons as key intellectual influences and having been named in Kennedy’s book How Would Jesus Vote? as one of the Reverend’s “favorite statesman.”
Kennedy, who the Anti-Defamation League has termed a “Christian supremacist,” repeatedly railed against legalized abortion, calling it the “American Holocaust” and suggesting that it would lead inevitably
to genocide in the United States. But Kennedy’s discussions of rape and
abortion in particular betray extraordinarily disturbing views about
rape victims:Read more!!!
AS IF Jesus would have more compassion for the child than for the woman. AS IF Jesus would be the Advocate for the offspring only. AS IF Jesus was No Longer the Man of Sorrows Who felt all our pain. As If Jesus became the Rock that destroys. AS IF JESUS WOULD BE COLD, MEAN SPIRITED, HEARTLESS AND CRUEL ENOUGH TO ALSO BLAME THE VICTIM.
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE--IT IS THIS KIND OF PREACHING OF A GOD WHO HATES AND DESTROYS THAT WILL SPELL THE END OF CHRISTIANITY. AFTER ALL, THIS KIND OF PREACH WILL ONLY INSPIRE HATE--TEACHING PEOPLE TO HATE JESUS AND TO HATE WHAT THEY ARE TOLD THAT JESUS STANDS FOR--THIS IS THE CANCER THAT CAN AND WILL DESTROY CHRISTIANITY FROM WITHIN.
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REAL GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST--CHECK OUT WHAT JESUS SAID TO SIMON PETER--AFTER HIS RESURRECTION--3x HE SAID FEED MY SHEEP/LAMBS--NOT JUDGE--NOT ARREST-NOT BLAME-BUT FEED--DOES THAT NOT COUNT FOR ANYTHING?????

BUT Columbus is too far and I work Saturday--I can only hope that they have a good showing of women and men who care about others. After all, there is a slippery slope that we are on--TIME AND TIME AGAIN--IT HAS BEEN SHOWN--THAT DESPITE THE CHRISTIAN TALIBAN LIES AND DECEPTIONS--THE REAL SLIPPERY SLOPE IS FIRST END ABORTION THEN END CONTRACEPTION AND THEN END WOMEN'S RIGHT TO VOTE. AFTER ALL, IT HAS BEEN ARGUED THAT WE WOMEN ALL TOO OFTEN VOTE DEMOCRAT WHICH IS WHY I HAVE HEARD SO MANY REPUBLICANS QUESTION WHY WE WOMEN SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE VOTING.
