Republican War on Women Alive in My Beloved Bucks County

Carversville General StoreYour Anne’s Carversville heart is breaking in two. The house, the land, the people that I love are voting to defund Planned Parenthood. My friends, gym mates, a date or two (most are from New York), my shopkeepers and fruit stand owners are committed to turning back the rights of American women, taking us back to the Fifties with Donna Reed in the kitchen, minding the kids.

For all who believe that I am exaggerating, you must get real. This IS the Republican plan.

The back roads of Carversville, Pa.I was horrified yesterday boarding the Philadelphia-based Planned Parenthood bus to Washington, when I opened my information packet to read that Mike Fitzpatrick, District 8 Republican for Bucks County is determined to defund Planned Parenthood.

I am registered now in District 1, led by pro Planned Parenthood representative Robert Brady.

District 8 has historical flip flop Democratic/Republican election results that reflect that divided nature of its soul. I fear that it’s my friends and neighbors who didn’t turn out to vote in November 2010, based on the numbers.

Defeat Republican War on Women Bucks County US Representative Mike Fitzpatrick

I give the women of Bucks County and America my word that I will work regularly to defeat Republican Mike Fitzpatrick in 2012.  Hearing the utter lies that are told about Planned Parenthood, I will go local in my support of the organization.

Anne Incorporates Her Uterus After Republican War on Women Nightmare

RedTracker| The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida has launched a new website IncorporateMyUterus.com.

The idea was launched in response to Rep Scott Randoph’s (D-Orlando) statement on the house floor that making a uterus into a corporation may be the only way to protect Florida women from lawmakers determined to fully regulate her body. Writes The Florida Independent:

“The Florida Legislature – and extreme social conservatives across the country – are taking rules and regulation off of businesses and adding them to uteruses,” said Howard Simon, Executive Director of ACLUFL. “People who really understand and respect personal freedom have to do something.  Maybe telling lawmakers that your body is really a business is the best way to get them to leave it alone.”

When I first heard the report, I said ‘We should incorporate our uteruses.’I have incorporated mine and will proudly post the declaration when it arrives. Men can register an ‘honorary’ uterus.

Rep Randolph’s wife Susannah, has added her voice to the Facebook page for the project.

I am shocked that across the state legislatures, men are reading every control imaginable over women’s bodies into the public records. But Rep Randolph is reprimanded, as he tells Rachel Maddow, for saying the word ‘uterus’ in a pro-woman, pro-privacy, pro-freedom manner.

America is roaring back to the McCarthy era unless concerned people take action. There is no doubt.

Rachel Maddow Interviews Rep Scott Randolph

My decision to register my uterus results from a terrible nightmare — the first in my life — about the Republican war on women. My profound dreams have always had a positive ending. Not this dream; it left me terrified and ready to board the bus to Washington tomorrow to once again stand up for American women, who are under assault from every direction.

The Republican War on Women Gives Me Nightmares

In his new book ‘The Social Animal’, David Brooks stresses that our unconscious mind is the driver in human behavior. Mine has been operating on steroids this week.

Last evening, I sent a message to a friend explaining that I can’t continue our discussion of Hillary Clinton right now. We fell into a heated discussion of Hillary’s effectiveness as Secretary of State, based on my Monday post. His comment about Hillary not helping the women of the Congo caused me to erupt into a passionate defense of her commitment to women worldwide. I couldn’t bear to have her ripped apart on my own private Facebook wall. 

My friend believes that Hillary is too masculine, whereas I am feminine and still powerful. This man is an ‘enlightened’ male and so the ferocity of our debate caught me off guard.

Forty years after women marched for our rights in America, we are not only losing them but still fighting the same sexual political arguments about sexuality, sensuality and the idealized visions of what women must be in order to leverage appeal and effectiveness. How depressing!

My friend was married to a very dominating woman for years, and he says that Hillary reminds him of himself in ways that he doesn’t like. Call me confused!

My week has gone downhill since our argument, except for hearing David Brooks speak at the World Affairs Council in Philadelphia Monday evening.  My woes are nothing compared to the poor women of the Congo, Afghanistan, Peru and Zambia, of course. We are not in the same league, although certain universal truths tie us together.

Women As Incubators

I can’t believe I have to get on the Planned Parenthood bus and start marching all over again Thursday for the right to be more than an ‘incubator’, which was Stupak’s term for women in the health care debate. Women can die because we are only ‘incubators’. The focus of the social conservatives is protecting the unborn, unconceived, unimagined.

American women are selfish for not wanting to die in the emergency room because our doctors refuse to induce the medical procedure needed to save our lives — a right the Supreme Court of America has given us. Congress portrays this woman as a self-absorbed alpha woman, when in reality she can easily be a mother of three in a deadly, life-threatening pregnancy.

Marriage Trends | Lily Aldridge | Victoria's Secret Bridal Spring 2011

Lily Aldridge | Victoria’s Secret Bridal Spring 2011 SN Living

The trend not to marry has major momentum worldwide, causing much controversy and concern, usually resulting in ‘blame the liberals’ or ‘blame the feminists’ for what is perceived as a dereliction of duty to marry once and for all.

While America retains one of the highest marriage rates among developed countries, fewer couples are making it to the matrimonial ‘I do’, causing me to reflect on Facebook yesterday that perhaps bridalwear could become a new form of seduction lingerie fantasy.

FB fans agreed, so there you go sexual trend prognosticators. My own view isn’t anti-marriage in any way. We know that children do better in stable, relationships when they function well.  The Scandianvian countries challenge the arguments that marriage itself, as opposed to permanent or long-term unions with involved parental support, produce problem children.

I’m pretty stunned reading just now that the cost of the average American wedding has increased robustly from 2005 to 2009. See statistics after graph.

The Bridal Association of America reports that weddings grew from 2.272,935 in 2005 to 2,326.485 in 2009.  Recession or no recession, the costs of getting married in America continue to skyrocket.

Hillary Clinton's Unyielding Commitment to Women's Empowerment

Stephanie Sinclair for Newsweek Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Abu Dhabi in January.RedTracker| A new Gallup poll reports that US Secy of State Hillary Clinton is the most popular person in the Obama Administration.

“Clinton’s popularity may be partly due to the nature of the secretary of state position, which is somewhat above the fray of partisan politics and focused on defending US interests globally,” writes Lydia Saad of the Gallup polling organization. But Ms. Saad also notes that Clinton “is seen in a favorable light by 45 percent of those who separately say they disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president.” via CSM

According to a recent Newsweek story on Hillary, two years into her tenure, she has out-traveled all of her predecessors, with 465,000 air miles and 79 countries under her belt. Secy Clinton is insistent that her ‘Hillary Doctrine’ is simple: the betterment of life for women and girls around the world.

Newsweek paints a portrait of Clinton as fully engaged, citing her presence on Egyptian news site Masrawy.com. Her presence resulted in more than 6,500 questions in three days—from young people across Egypt.

“We hope,” she said, “that as Egypt looks at its own future, it takes advantage of all of the people’s talents”—Clinton shorthand for including women.

Hillary Clinton Says World's Women Must Gain Power & Rights

A number of questioners accused her of meddling in Egyptian affairs with her persistent references to women’s rights. Clinton replied: “If a country doesn’t recognize minority rights and human rights, including women’s rights, you will not have the kind of stability and prosperity that is possible.”

Terry Jones, Randall Terry, Mike Huckabee At Work for God & Christianity

HopeTracker| Hated by many, a man with a few followers who is ‘basically broke’ writes the NYTimes, Gainesville ‘pastor’ of Dove World Outreach Center Terry Jones says he is ‘saddened’ and ‘moved’ by the deaths of innocent people in Afghanistan, but he would burn the Quran all over again.

Mr. Jones, 59, with his white walrus moustache, craggy face and basso profundo voice, seems like a man from a different time. Sitting at his desk in his mostly unadorned office, he keeps a Bible in a worn brown leather cover by his side and a “Braveheart” poster within sight. Both, he said, provide spiritual sustenance for the mission at hand: Spreading the word that Islam and the Koran are instruments of “violence, death and terrorism.”

Al Jazeera English published President Obama’s condemnation of the killing:

“The desecration of any holy text, including the Quran, is an act of extreme intolerance and bigotry,” Obama said in a statement on Saturday.

“However, to attack and kill innocent people in response is outrageous, and an affront to human decency and dignity.”

Terry Jones burned the Quran in front of about 50 people on March 20.  In this March 3 video, he stands with Operation Rescue leader Randall Terry (anti-abortion rights) on March 3 in Washington at a small anti-sharia law in America protest.

Jones is asked if he will really burn the Quran and another man says ‘that’s what the people voted for’. WHOA!!! If I am not mistaken, there are no women milling around this mini event.
