Physicists Find 'God' Damned Particle | GlamTribale: "Hang Tight! The Goddesses Are Coming!" | Mermaids Debunked!

French Roast News

Anne is reading …

It’s not often that the New York Times and FOX News agree on anything. But today the Times writes CERN Physicists May Have Discovered Higgs Boson Particle and FOX weighs in with Physicists find evidence of new subatomic particle that resembles Higgs boson.

FOX writes:

To cheers and standing ovations from scientists, the world’s biggest atom smasher claimed the discovery of a new subatomic particle Wednesday, calling it “consistent” with the long-sought Higgs boson — popularly known as the “God particle” — that helps explain what gives all matter in the universe size and shape.

Physicists don’t use the term ‘God particle’, coined by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Leon Lederman, who said he chose the word in an attempt to explain its intrinsic relevance to physics but also, in humor, that his publisher wouldn’t like him call it the “God damned” particle.  

Two independent teams of researchers have worked on the long-sought Higgs boson. In December, the same teams hinted at positive news that’s critical to a full understanding of the physics of the universe. This time, each team used independent ways of hunting for Higgs bosons, and found compatible results that literally have a 1 in a million chance of being wrong, writes the Christian Science Monitor.

Nada to Mermaids

We note with amusement — but also growing concern for the future of American women —  that the National Ocean Service posted on June 27 that mermaids don’t exist.

Christopher Columbus in 1493 documented seeing three mermaids from a distance near Haiti. Live Science reports

Up close, the sea maidens were “not as pretty as they are depicted,” he wrote in his journal, “for somehow in the face they look like men.”

Spittin’ Sisters News

A new book “Pioneers of the Possible’ explores the contributions of 20 women who have changed the world. Comprised of artists, activists, business women and poets, the book examines the lives of successful women from different latitudes and cultures, from the Far East to South America.

The Goddesses Are Coming

Spittin’ Out the Pitts on Facebook

Smart Sensuality wisdom does involve elements of intellectual seduction, a womanly knowledge of what constitutes the irresistible.  Delicious food and sensual images tend to attract attention, and I admit to using them with wanton abandon in the determination of our national group of Spittin’ Sisters to unseat PA 16 Rep Joe Pitts and elect Aryanna Strader.

GlamTribale Says “Hang Tight, The Goddesses Are Coming!”

Do note that ‘Bathing Beauty’ legs are open, revealing her genitalia under the water. The inference is that our lady of the harbor is nude and ready to receive.

It is this aspect of female nature that monotheism, in particular, seeks to conquer.  We note with amusement — but also growing concern for the future of American women —  that the National Ocean Service posted on June 27 that mermaids don’t exist.

Scientists believe that Columbus may have seen manatees. Perhaps Columbus actually saw Mami Wata in action. She has a long history in Haiti on her voyage from Africa to Brazil with many cultural stops along the way.  As the slave trade spread, so did Mami Wata’s influence.

Is PA 16th Joe Pitts A Threat to the Personhood of American Women? | Planned Parenthood & Prochoice Republicans

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

PA 16 Congressional District Joe Pitts(R) and Former Michigan Senator Bart Stupak (D) Anne is reading her own article on BlueAmerica: Joe Pitts — An Existential Threat To The United States and Why He Must Be Defeated.

When PA 16th district Representative Joe Pitts became the head of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health after the 2010 mid-term elections, some American women knew we were in for a rough ride.

Congressman Joe Pitts has been an anti-abortion advocate for decades and an avowed foe of Planned Parenthood. The only form of sex education Pitts will endorse is the failed program of abstinence. And of course, Pitts is anti-gay marriage.

Finding a Voice, Taking a Stand

In the fall of 2009, American women and the men in our lives certainly took our right to contraception and other reproductive health services for granted.

Yes, the anti-abortion debate swirled constantly around us. The tone was shifting but still not in a truly frightening way. My group was being called murderers of countless innocent children for having used an IUD as my favored method of birth control.

The voices that had stalked me for a year in the 70s, threats marking me for death and putting me in police protection for a year in Buffalo, New York, grew more pronounced. In the late 70s, I walked away from a career in journalism after decapitated animals, bloody knives and my hanging rope arrived daily.

When my masked stalker finally flew across the windshield of my car on a cold fall night, I fought for my life, gunning the accelerator in self-survival mode. Sobbing on the phone to the now well-known and very supportive lieutenant of my police department, I explained that I didn’t know if my pro-life stalker was dead or alive in the parking lot.

My crime? As an American woman in a free country, I did not understand supporting the Supreme Court Roe decision on a TV panel would put my life at risk.

Luckily, I am talented in business and was able to redirect my career, once I understood that being a journalist who agreed with Supreme Court decisions was reason to kill me. I was young then. Read on.

Planned Parent Spotlight

Dayna Smith/AP PhotoSusan G. Komen’s chief fundraiser Julie Teer is leaving the organization for a position as senior vice president of resource development at the Boys and Girls’ Clubs, reports The Daily Beast.

Planned Parenthood & Republicans

Journalist and former television news reporter and anchor at CNN and NBC Campbell Brown wrote a NYTimes op ed called Planned Parenthood’s Self-Destructive Behavior. Brown cites Ronald Reagan’s comment “the person who agrees with you 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally — not a 20 percent traitor.”

We don’t see prochoice challenges in this light, believing instead that it’s women’s reproductive health rights and other women’s issues “shiny objects” — to quote the Romney campaign — that lay in the heart of the 20 percent of backroom deals made in Congress and state legislatures, focused on controlling women’s bodies. 

Will Planned Parenthood back any Republican candidates who are prochoice? That question lies at the heart of Brown’s piece. She cites the distressing turn that Planned Parenthood took against Senator Susan Collins of Maine, one of five Republicans who stood by the organization last year, when she supported the confirmation of Bush Supreme Court judge Samuel A. Alito.

While the vote was a challenging one for Senator Collins, she says she came to it after speaking with Mr. Alito about his respect for precedent and whether he considered Roe v. Wade settled law. (Senator Collins has since also voted to confirm Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.) Ms. Collins was acting in the traditional (and admirable) spirit of the Senate, which tends to confirm judicial nominees unless the person is clearly unqualified.

Planned Parenthood turned against her, says Collins, who now calls the group “infuriating” and nothing more than “an arm of the Democratic National Committee.”

Campbell Brown raises valid questions about Planned Parenthood’s willingness to support prochoice Republican candidates, which is a position that AOC endorses. The organization must rise above partisan politics, which is darn difficult when the Republican War on women is so real.

UniteWomen.org Calls Out PA (R) Congressman Joseph Pitts, Sponsor of HR 358 "Let Women Die" Bill

Joseph Pitts (R) PA

Open Congress Summary: Amends the new health care law so that no federal money could be applied to health insurance plans that cover elective abortions, even if the abortion coverage is paid for entirely with private funds. It also states that a federal agency can not force a health care provider that accepts Medicare or Medicaid to provide abortion services, even in cases when the mother’s life is endangered.

The above need to know about PA (R) Congressman Joseph Pitts is a public service announcement by UniteWomen.org.

MS Magazine wrote about Joseph Pitts and his Catholic bishops-driven vision of women’s rights:

The provision of the amendment that frees hospitals that refuse to perform emergency abortions from even the legal obligation of stabilizing and transferring individuals also creates a direct conflict with the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), which since 1986 has required them to do so. This “conscience clause” would also overturn the recent Health and Human Services Department decision that requires contraception be covered by insurance at no additional cost.

Based on a recent Catholic survey, conducted by Jon O’Brien, president of Catholics for Choice, only about 14% of Catholics support Joe Pitts’ bill as Catholics who refuse to accept abortion under any circumstances. “Another 37 percent said it should be legal in just a few cases, 27 percent said it should be legal in most cases and 21 percent said it should be legal in all cases. The margin of error was plus or minus 3.2 percentage points,” writes PolitiFact.

Just yesterday, Cardinal Dolan admitted that the majority of Catholics don’t stand with his church on not permitting contraception or the demand of Catholic bishops that the Obama contraception mandate compromise infringes on their religious liberty. Listen to Cardinal Dolan at 2:30 on religious freedom.

Even more interesting, listen to Cardinal Dolan talk about Republican attitudes about immigration and substitute dying women in hospitals for immigrant families. With all due respect, I’ll agree that Cardinal Dolan is smooth. But let’s just get all the facts on the table in the Catholic bishops war on women.

The Catholic Church now owns one hospital in six in America. Even without HR 358 American women now are left to die in emergency rooms and not even stabilized, if a needed drug or medical procedure could possibly harm her 1” zygote. Her existing children don’t matter nor does her distraught husband, because SHE has no right to personhood.

We all need to listen to each other and let the voters decide what’s right for the future of our daughters and granddaughters in America. As for contraception, Cardinal Dolan says that the bishops must “get our act together on contraception”. It didn’t sound like the bishops would be bending but rather launching a major new legislative assault on women’s rights to contraception in America.

Is Joe Pitts the Catholic bishops’ man to ban birth control in America?

(R) Congressman Joseph Pitts works for the Catholic bishops and not for the voters of Pennsylvania OR the rights of American women, men and families. Pennsylvanians must FIRE Joseph Pitts at the ballot box in November. Let him become a Catholic bishop because he refuses to represent the beliefs of the vast majority of Americans and American Catholics and to uphold the core Republican-led Supreme Court decisions giving women the right to control our reproductive choices.

The people MUST claim our rights in November 2012 by firing Republican Joseph Pitts. ~Anne
