I read her blog regarding the similar article I wrote on “War on Women” and I felt this article should be shared.

War On Women

20 Mar

Oklahoma Personhood

I am just outraged on all the news I am reading that are targeting women’s issues: abortion, birth control and rape.  All three are being demise in many states across the nation and I feel as if this is completely ridiculous.  I understand the majority of these lawmakers are in the political party that I represent, the GOP, but the issues and preposterous statements regarding these women’s rights are wrong.

These rights have been fought by many high-strong women who felt that us, women, should have the right to make their own decision for their own body.  Why should a politician who does not know me, tell me what I can or cannot do with my body.  We don’t restrict men from anything.  Us, women, don’t limit any of their rights, so why must they belittle/demean my gender?

Currently, I feel as if the focus on the GOP presidential Debate, especially with Santorum is mostly dealing with women and birth control. Santorum, think America‘s main focus is on how to fix the economy, not if I should consult with my employer if I should take birth control or not.  These bogus statements make me so irate.  It’s like why should you limit my right on if I should or should not get an abortion. You don’t want me (women) to have an abortion then don’t bitch when you (as in government) must increase the welfare budget to accommodate the increase in children.

Furthermore, the statements that claiming rape is another method for women to seek abortions. Seriously, Idaho, your state ideology is very backwards and, most importantly, your thought process is chauvinistic. This perplexes me.  How do you know if a women was really raped?  How dare you declare that these women do this to just get what they want.  Your ignorance to the female gender if baffling and I hope you don’t get re-elected, you don’t deserve it.

I do have a solution to this abortion and birth control debate. If you (as in politicians) feel as if these two women’s rights should be eliminated then why don’t you (as a government) think of a better solution than limiting a human being’s rights. I do have a solution that would really end all abortion and birth control debates. Why doesn’t the government mandate that every male MUST receive a vasectomy which will eliminate the abortion issue; in addition to, the birth control issue. However, this would never fly in committee since the majority of politicians are males.  Why should a male have to perform this act?  A vasectomy is very safe and simple procedure PLUS it is reversible. So why not?  If you (as a government) are planning to eliminate my rights on taking birth control or abortion, but, no offense congress this is 2012. Instead of going back 6 decades with in-stating ridiculous laws, move forward. 

These laws are long prohibiting advancement in our society and making our country a more socialistic society.  I really hope the women in this country start to stand up and fight for your rights.  These lawmakers are restricting your rights as a human and woman and I feel as if you don’t stand up, these politicians will use it against us (women).  I see it as an insult to the women who lost their lives fighting for our rights that we take for granted these days. Instead of worrying about Snooki and her illegitimate child, worry about the possible rights you (woman) are about to lose.  In closing, women it’s about time to standup, support one another and reverse the negativity that is going through congress. We are over half of the population in our country, we bare the numbers so less use them.

Happy Belated St. Patrick’s Day!

19 Mar

Top o’ the evening to ya!

I hope everyone’s St. Paddy’s day was full-filled with lots of Irish cheer and green beer. 

This blog will not deal with anything about my normal post about politics and current events but about the rarity of having an intelligent conversation at the bar. Today I was texting my guy friend about how great it was to actually have a conversation that isn’t regarding any IQ dropping topic (i.e. Jersey Shore or Snooki’s oompa loompa fetus) but having a conversation that really that had substance. I felt that everyone in our group was educated about many different topics but most importantly current events and politics. Most people go off by opinion but not by actual facts, however, everyone held their own.

It felt nice not getting pissed off at people’s ignorance to politics and to tell them to read a history book before acknowledging another political conversation with me. I refuse to talk to someone who has no understanding of who, what, when, and how things happened which usually gives them a different understanding of the truth. I’m not trying to sound like a know-it-all but I just can’t stand the ignorance of people, especially when it comes to politics. If I don’t know much about a topic, I won’t give my opinion because how am I suppose to share what I think when I have little to no knowledge about the topic (i.e. engineering). 

I know I am cutting this blog short but I really wanted to share the importance of being an educated and intelligent person and how rewarding it is to connect intellectually with people. I feel as if society, especially my generation, is lacking communication skills since texting and facebooking has changed the entire way of life so it’s harder for these types of conversations to happen. In close, yesterday’s all day drinking day not only was full-filled with Irish cheer, green beer but a surprisingly intellectual, stimulating conversation. Thank you all!

“Docket In Your Pocket”

7 Mar

I seriously love technology and proud how far we – as a society – has come. Today my best friend’s boyfriend was sharing with us about a new iphone application called Docket In Your Pocket (cost $2.99 and so far it’s only available for Pennslyvania Residents) and it literally allows you to check anyone’s criminal background and also civil suits. Since it is all public knowledge this data base bares all. My friend and I decided to get a little curious with this application and searched ourselves. Well since neither of us has been in trouble with the law – civil or criminal – we both didn’t show up in the data base (thank god!). However, we decided to get a little more daring on the applicants that we chose. We started out with recent ex-boyfriends – guys we dated and so on and so forth. Let me tell you, this application really is informative.

I honestly believe that everyone should purchase this app – parents, women, men, anyone who is doing online dating – you need to purchase this. This application can literally save you from getting yourself into unnecessary drama or even someone who may have lied about their “innocent” past.

Living in the 21st Century we must take particular precautions and I think this application is a good start.

Here are some screen shots of the app.

Occupy Wallstreet Protesters

7 Mar

What bugs me the most is that every morning when I walk from the parking garage to work I always have to walk pass the stupid “Occupy Wallstreet”protesters.  What erks me about this is that clearly none of the protesters have jobs since they would be working instead of standing out in the cold, waving their cut out pieces of cardboard with messages that states, “Honk if you are the 99%.” What annoys me the most is that clearly these protesters are wasting their days away holding a piece of cardboard when they should be contributing to society. Instead of complaining about the 1%, remember they are paying the most into the welfare, unemployment, WIC, etc. Furthermore, not only the 1% is paying into those programs but also the 91.5% of employed Americans. So instead of creating signs that are unappreciative towards the people who are putting their hard-working money into the system for your unemployed, “free handout,” maybe create a sign that says THANK YOU! Maybe us 91.5% employed Americans may be a little more okay with our taxes supporting you.

Since I loathe this protest, I’ve always joked about having a tent located directly on the opposite side of the street with signs that say, “Jobfair (that way)——->” or “Dear Occupy Protesters, You’re welcome! Sincerely, 91.5%” Yet… they already beat me to it….

… darn it!

 

Readers: Do you still have occupy protesters in your community? What are you thoughts are regarding this protest? Do you think it has changed anything?
