A good spanking!



The Republican Party received a good spanking on Tuesday night. A well deserved spanking, I might add. Did they really think American women were going to go back into a 1950's box where old white men could fling billions at an election and tell us what we will and will not do with our bodies? Did they really think baby-boomer women, who fought hard for equal pay for equal work, the right to choose when they will bear children, would hand those rights over for their daughters?

I have never felt abortion was right for me, but I have no desire to make that decision for all women. Especially women who have been RAPED. As for insurance companies paying for contraception - why is it okay for them to pay for Viagra and not contraception? Men that want to be sexually active long after they are physically able to do so, without help, are more important than choosing when to bring a human being into the world? On what planet?

 It's not like these same people will take care of the little babies once they're born. No, instead they want to cut funding for anything having to do with families, children, and education.

This spanking was long overdue. America's voting demographic is at least 52% women. It's time they start asking us what we want - not what they want to shove down our throats.

Yes! We are rising up and saying NO MORE! I am thrilled with the fact that twenty women (20!) will be in the Senate next year. Yes! :-)

Hurray! Karl Rove is really trying to spin the loss...Good for women, hispanics, afro-americans, and everyone else who stood in long lines to vote.

I love how all that money the wealthy GOP spent, couldn't buy the election results which they wanted.

Just-plain citizens beat Citizens United. I am relieved and happy over so many victories across the country.

Raksha said...

You have to wonder what they were thinking, running such a hateful misogynistic campaign. Who exactly did they think was going to vote for them...and WHY?

karen said...

Right on!!!

Hilary said...

Very well said. But you're preaching to the choir of women.. and dear Brian, of course. ;)

Linda Myers said...

I wish they could have spent all that money on something lasting - like roads, bridges or homeless shelters.

Hi!
Very well said! I am happy he won! I can't believe some of my conservative friends said that women voted with their vagina!

As someone who has a loved one who got raped and then got pregnant, I totally cannot dictate what other women should do. I don't approve of abortion, either, but I can't tell a woman who's been raped what to do!

Hear, Hear!!!! and Amen too.
