October 3, 2018

A few days ago, I wrote about being mortified --- once again, embarrassed to be female --- at the sight of two hysterical women cornering Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator.  He stood there cowed, stricken like a child whose puppy had just been stomped on, as they cried and shouted nonsense like (I’m paraphrasing), “If Kavanaugh is confirmed, it means victims of sexual abuse are not being heard!!”

See, RIGHT THERE, that is an example of the kind of cracked “female logic” that smart women for generations have tried to rise above.  I’m (barely) old enough to remember that women of my grandmother’s generation were thought of as fragile, emotional, irrational, and likely in need of medication (“mother’s little helper”) just to get through the day.  There’s an old song I've never liked, called “Roses and Lollipops,” about how men should treat their wives, with lines like  “One day she’ll smile, next day she’ll cry...minute to minute, you’ll never know why”...and “Fourteen or forty, they’re kids in their hearts.”  It was meant in a loving way, I know, but even as a little girl I found it condescending, though lollipops were fine (then).

Numerous times, during my college years and later, people who’d spent much time talking with me told me I “think like a man,” and they intended that as a compliment.  They meant I was logical and articulate, the implication being that women in general were not.  Logic was (wrongly) considered a uniquely masculine trait, emotionality a feminine one.  It seems to me that everybody should strive for a good balance of rationality and emotion, logic and intuition, independence and compassion.  Many women could be described that way, and so could many men.

That scene with Sen. Flake in the elevator took us right back to the old stereotypes about women.  So does the radical leftist incarnation of the #MeToo movement, with its stupid hats and inane chants.  Thanks to such behavior, women, OUR elevator is going DOWN, and it could be a long climb back up to real equality.  It is my intention to distance myself from you as much as possible. 

Incidentally, we’re finding out more about those women in the elevator, and the others who have been doing the “in your face” routine with senators.  As noted last week, the women on the elevator with Sen. Flake were from the Center for Popular Democracy, a liberal activist group based in New York that leads an $80 million anti-Trump network primarily funded by George Soros.  They orchestrated the whole thing.  Ana Maria Archila, one of the women screaming at Flake, is a co-executive director of the organization.  Later, she posted an account of the confrontation, bragging that Flake “would not make eye contact” and that CNN had reported he was “visibly shaken,” and taking credit for the delayed vote.

There’s much more about the Center for Popular Democracy at the link, here.

And activists have revealed that the protestors arrested for disrupting Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings (before any allegations of sexual misconduct had been made public) were paid cash.  From the day of his nomination, those near-constant disruptions were scheduled as part of an organized effort to derail the confirmation process.  The cash was for post-and-forfeit payments, to keep those arrested from going to jail.  Money courtesy of George Soros, of course.  This information appeared on September 22 (link here); have you heard anything else in the media about it?

The protestors are reveling in the effect they've had so far.  When they get their way, as they did with Sen. Flake, they smell blood in the water and only become more thirsty for it (blood, not water).  Why did Sen. Flake have to just stand there and take it while those women screamed at him?  Did he feel guilty, as a man, for their anguish?  Men as a “species” are not responsible for what some terrible individuals do.  It’s not right for them to be sacrificed, like Jesus on the Cross, for the sins of others.  Brett Kavanaugh should not be seen as the symbol of anything –- he’s a real, flesh-and-blood husband and father with legions of female friends, an educated and thoughtful American citizen with a long history of solid judicial rulings.  He has rights, believe it or not.  And Sen. Flake needs to stand up for Kavanaugh’s rights and the rights of all accused.

When Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy was confronted by one of these protestors in a Senate walkway on Monday, he didn’t just stand there like a human dart board.  He responded with thoughtful answers.  This, essentially, is how the conversation started:

SHE:  Why are you supporting Kavanaugh?

HE:  Well, how would you feel if your loved one were being destroyed by unsubstantiated charges?  Why WOULDN’T I support Kavanaugh?

SHE:  Because rapists are bad!

Now, there’s some logic.  It goes on from there, and the video is available courtesy of THE DAILY CALLER (link below if you’d like to experience your head exploding).  As a woman, I am pained by the lack of reason shown here by the protestor.  It reminds me of the song Rex Harrison sings –- well, talks, actually –- called “Why Can’t A Woman Be More Like A Man.”  I wonder why, in 2018, any woman of normal IQ can’t use her mind better than this.

Women, this behavior is just embarrassing and is going to set us back DECADES.  I don’t care how strongly you believe in Roe v. Wade, or how much George Soros is paying you, or what, but you are making all of us women look like idiots.  Even worse, if it turns out after all this that any of the witnesses against Kavanaugh were making things up --- as it seems they did --- how are legitimate victims ever going to be believed?  How can we expect to be treated as equals when we’re acting like screaming toddlers?  I'm only slightly kidding when I say men may decide they’ve had enough and start thinking, “Do I really want to be heterosexual?”  Maybe they'll just decide to be celibate, or to have exclusive relationships with those new female robots, which I understand are very lifelike now.  That may be just fine with some of you female protestors who really have it in for men, but I think it would be a darn shame.

    I agree with you 100%. I was disgusted with the way Flake acted. I believe he is a very weak man, and he had a problem with these yelling women. I wonder if he ever found out that they were being paid to do that. Most of the women I know are not in the #metoo movement. I was more than disgusted with what happened to Brett Kavanaugh. No wonder he lashed out at them because he was hurting, and his family were hurting. The Democrats caused this because they did not want Kavanaugh on the court, and they played dirty pool. I hope it comes back and smacks them in the face. I am sick of the entire thing that is going on in our country.

    I know many straight-thinking, logical women on either side and in the middle of the political spectrum . (Most) Men are not fooled by those nuts, such as the one in the elevator. Just like a nut allergy, we avoid them. Take heart, most of us love the independent, classy feminine women of today of today. You seem to be one of them.

    I agree with your editorial. I was disgusted by the behavior of those women. I was even more disgusted by The woman testifying. To me it was all put on. I don't even remember her name. She acted like a child at times and I may have been prejudice but I didn't believe her at all. I can't stand people who act like wimps. Sure things happen to us; but a lot of it we let it happen. Why did she continue too attend those parties knowing what might happen?

    The other woman was M Gallagher. Since I spy on CNN, I know that both Ana Cabrera (the CNN talking head who twisted the truth so badly she may have had to apologize) and Anderson Cooper invited Ana Maria Archila, who is from Colombia, to be their guest. While cornering Sen. Flake in the elevator, she accused Kavanaugh of "violating" a young girl. "Violar" in Spanish is "rape". Can't she be sued? Kavanaugh wouldn't want to but suing her and Adam Schiff, who also said publicly he was a rapist, might make them think before opining. I live in El Salvador where foreigners sign a paper when we come promising not to participate in political protest, even campaigning. The U.S. should have a similar law for foreigners. The Alien and Sedition Act was under Pres. Adams, I think. Dems love him.

    I agree with your article. Women, especially those who have been attacked, are being set back by these emotional protests. I don't understand how they can say that Brett Kavanaugh should be considered guilty in spite of the total lack of any evidence against him. They are saying hateful things about Sen. Susan Collins because she said that she believes that Dr. Ford was attacked, but not by Kavanaugh, and they think that I'm evil because I agree with Sen. Collins.
    These women are either purposely using this #metoo situation in order to get power, or they ARE emotional to the point that they cannot think rationally. Whichever is true, it's bad. So maybe those condescending songs are right...about some women, though I hate to think so.

    I couldn't agree with you more. I am almost ashamed to be a woman right now. Like you, I've been told all my life that I think like a man. It is humiliating to see females either acting stupidly, truly being stupid or whiney, disingenuous and, even worse, corrupt.

    Funny but I was thinking along the same lines myself. I was born and raised a democrat but it's embarrassing to say that now. I would probably have voted for Biden but not Hillary. I voted for Trump. I'm now glad I did. He's doing a great job but at the time it was the lesser of two ridiculous choices. There might have been a woman in the foreseeable future but right now not a chance. We'll be lucky if we don't lose the right to vote.

    FEMINISTS WANT ALL THE JOBS, MEN NOT USING THEIR FULL ABILITIES, ALL THE BOYS IN THE CORNER LETTING THE GIRLS WIN AND LEARN, AND ALL THE MEN IN PRISON...AND AMERICAN WOMEN TURNED INTO A HAREM..."Act/dress like a harem whore to entrap, demasculate or manipulate males--they are fools for our boobs and butts; and learn to give a hand-job and they will be moaning dullards forever and you can claim sex assault later" is our conquering motto--THANK YOU CONTRACEPTION AND ABORTION SO WE DO NOT HAVE TO BE LOYAL TO NATURE.

    deplorable ad hominem pamphleteer

    "Unnatural deeds do breed unnatural troubles: infected minds to their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets. More need they the divine than the physician."

    Hillary Clinton finally told why she lost the election to President Trump: because she was a woman. "You know you're going to be subject to unfair and beside-the-point criticism," she said in response to a question on the difficulties of women running for office. As one of the most emancipated "equal" women who ever existed (except for maybe the brutal first Queen Elizabeth), Hillary proved she does not deserve the presidency or major anything. And maybe no woman does. Her words make men scream: "ISN'T THAT JUST LIKE A WOMAN!" -- words said for centuries by men bewildered by the idiotic intrinsic double standards of women carrying on as if they were really equal to men and then whimper "I am a woman" to protest being actually treated like a man. Women never heard of the Equal Misery Amendment--act like a man, get treated like one. Being "a man," she was treated like one and refuses to believe it--she wanted the door held open for her. They play "the female card" to get sexist advantages as they pretend equality.
    Abstract: Feminism is really a big victimism entitlement con stupefying males into deferring to women as a pretense of "equality" by becoming: a "do not assert your full male virtue and abilities in job hunting or anything else fool, a deadbeat unnecessary dad, an incompetent family man, a gay cult genital maniac, a drug-using uneducated unemployable parasite, and a criminal. That also was the celebrated "women's march" in January 2017. It really was a LOSERS' MARCH--women who are not able to "lose like a man", wearing what they called their "pussyhats"--and having what lesbians call a "cuntfest" and some chanting "cunt" as the audience is led to do in the play Vagina Monologues--all really created by the genital maniacs of the gay cult. It was all over the world in January 2017, which actually had women (a word they no longer deserve), upset over a woman losing an election, hating, assaulting, demeaning and doing what they claimed to be protesting. Isn't that just like a feminist? For 500 years, the OED has "man, male, manhood" meaning all members of the human family regardless of sex, race, or age. Now, feminists will want to delete from "woman", "person", "humanity," "human," "mankind," and wherever "man, male, son, etc. are found. Feminists are intellectually dishonest and selfish beyond belief in their pseudo-equality pretensions, as they demand to be treated "equally as men but like a woman" at the same time...and please continue the world's largest expensive sexist social prejudices: engagement rings, jewelry stores, and jewelry advertising (a simple law could outlaw these anti-male crimes in a minute).
    After watching the same television ad several times, I concluded that it was the most discriminatory thing I had ever seen, even worse than Donald Sterling's disgraceful comments about Blacks. It was an ATT ad of a young saleswoman pitching four older executive women, each of whom had a comment, while a wimpy dumb executive man at the periphery and back of the group looks stupid, says nothing and then postures himself in imitation of the women's gestures. This mockery of men is outrageous and much more elaborate than the N word or Sterling's private mutterings. This thing is being shown many times daily for months. Worst, the message conveyed to boys is harmful and hateful. Those responsible should be expelled from all advertising forever just as Sterling was from the National Basketball Association.

    As I reflected on this ad, several points about feminism seemed evident:

    1. Feminists are frauds when they themselves use against males the very discrimination about which they complain has been used against females (The same applies to all other victimhood wackos who turn into chauvinist intolerant bullies as they ironically complain about the same thing done against them). Feminists rarely really praise and support males, especially their boys. Almost ALWAYS with boys (and almost all males), feminists will have a question (meaning he could have been better), a doubt (meaning he was likely to be wrong), an alternative (meaning he did not know the best way), or an absolute snarl (meaning he was just being wrong as all males really are all the time). Feminists do not want to listen to males. Males are always wrong. Boys are now raised psychologically castrated by feminists. This why girls have done so well in school and all else, compared to boys in some subcultures wherein the women are haremfeminists who destroy the boys by anti-male-virtue sexism and destroy the men by oversexualizing them into numbed incompetence and irrelevancy. That trend is "feminism."
    2. Feminists destroy the family when they hit on married men. In my youth, young women respected married women by never getting involved with a married man: "He belongs to her!" was the overt rule understood by all and almost universally followed. That a man is married is no longer respected as part of the female rights of his wife. The presentation of violent or prurient females to males by the routinely sexsational press and media is basically a "sexual assault" on the males.
    3. Feminists have adopted male sexuality incompetently--as one hears young women complain of "rape" after placing themselves in flagrant copulation expected situations but then feel guilty needing, once sober, to deny consent and reject readily seen consequences not cared about when high or enjoying the excitement of a copulation expected situation. In a masturbatory culture with sexuality reduced to simple squirting and sliming any way every way, feminists cannot complain when they place themselves where and when it is expected and can easily happen.
    4. Feminists have destroyed the prime dictionary meaning of female as "designating the sex that produces ova and bears offspring" (For male, it is "designating the sex that fertilizes the ovum and begets offspring."). Thus, the planetary and natural functioning of humans have been destroyed by feminists.
    5. Feminists openly demean and dis-empower males beginning in grade schools as the special needs of boys (because of their innate higher activity levels) are punished rather than converted into intellectual pursuits.
    6. Feminists consider "family" to be a problem rather than the natural traditional solution to incivility and lack of culture.
    7. Feminists want the natural traditional paternalism accompanying male strength and power to be replaced by passive transfer of the same paternalistic power to women who do not have to realize thankfully or even gratefully believe what they have convinced men to do. This further destroys the family as males no longer exert virtue for their family as first identified in the Moynihan Report on the Negro Family in 1965 as black males have been rendered obsolete for everything by black feminists.
    8. Feminists destroy the right to childhood by imposing adult sexuality and violence onto children so they do not learn positive life, sacrifice, virtue, love, humanity, peace, freedom and natural death without fear (the Catholic Mass Mantra).
    9. Feminists have increased violence against women by ignoring the most common sites of such violence: lesbian households.
    10. Feminists have become a genital cult, as party to the gay cult, which has de-natured "sex" into a selfish masturbatory culture deserving mockery, instead of love based sacredness in marriage offering unity and reproduction in concert with Nature and Nature's God promoted by the Founders.
    11. Feminists have destroyed marriage as the psycho-social pheromone for humans ever since we escaped from biological pheromones which rule in nature for the rest of the animal kingdom confining animals to sexual activity only between opposite sexed mature members of the same species at time of likely reproduction.
    12. Feminists have become promoters of "evil is good" authority-obedience of Adolf Eichmann well proven by Stanley Milgrim. Haremfeminsts are the biggest "enablers" of sex assault by their culture of masturbation.
    13. Feminists are SELFISH SEXISTS and all the words imply.
    14. To demand EQUALITY is a trap door. Think of the woman in the elevator who struck her NFL husband in a heated argument. An "I am a man too" equal proclamation. Of course, he decks her in a quick down and out and did not wail away like he would have if she were to be treated really as a "man". There is the other NFL guy in a bar and a pretty blond engaging in laughing then tense and hostile snarling, strikes him in the face with her closed fist--he decks her and all separate without his wailing away as if she were a man. Both gals proclaimed their womanhood after demonstrating their male-equal feminism. Both guys get penalized by the NFL who refuse to allow women to be men even when they act like men. Call it a violation of the Equal Misery Amendment as movies et al portray females as tough-as-men gals who do well fighting males--suggestible women imitate this but find the men do not crumble as on television. Then there are "fighting words" for men--perhaps women using those words should be treated equally as a man would be as a welcome to the real equality they claim to want.
    15. Feminists, by abortion's subliminal psychological effects, reject "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Transcendentals" which means: no Judeo-Christianity = no homemakers = no childhood = no manhood = no virtue = no culture = LOSERS! = TRASH.
    16. The utopian unequal feminism of Sweden is an outrageous example of feminists getting special treatment as females so they can proclaim "equality" as the Swedish males do their universal Swed'anger--or Swedish "regretful making nice (the meaning of 'anger in Swedish)"----calm, benign, self-righteous, --it really comes down to "unapologetic cowardly making nice"---which the only things Swedes really do...(like not joining the Allies to shorten World War II by a year or more had they any manhood then too)--It is sort of their remaining version of Christianity. Just know that Sweden's "feminist equality" everywhere is an oxymoron--It will be that way unless feminists are REALLY TREATED LIKE MALES every where, every time, about every thing--They will not like it.

    The outrageous ad first described above does and proves all this and it is not an isolated comment said privately like Donald Sterling's. It is an ad run daily for months. It is hateful, discriminatory, a sexist public health hazard and against the law of equality. Feminism is really a big sexist victimism entitlement con stupefying males into deferring to women as a pretense of "equality" by becoming: a "do not assert your full male virtue and abilities in school, job hunting or anything else fool, a deadbeat unnecessary dad, an incompetent family man, a gay cult genital maniac, a drug-using uneducated unemployable parasite, and a criminal. That also was the celebrated "women's march" all over the world in January 2017, which actually had women doing what they claimed to be protesting. Isn't that just like a woman?

    The results are protests and riots from the Losers (nee' Womens) March to Berkeley--ALL raging rioting protestors NEED Octavio Paz' "San Ildefonso nocturne":
    Good, we wanted good:
    to set the world right.
    We didn't lack integrity:
    we lacked humility.
    What we wanted was not
    innocently wanted.

    to beat with a cross,
    to institute with blood....

    to the General Secretary of the
    became philosophy,
    its evil has covered the

    If you do not think this is true, check the Moynihan Report again and all that has happened to any group with feminists.

    From my pamphlet: "What the Equal Rights Amendment Means to Men" of 1974:

    Typically ignored are the following fundamental constructs of feminism:
    Barbara Balogun (in Voices From Women's Liberation 1971): "I feel that the personal relationships of marriage must under go a revolution...the roles of male and female must be completely redefined--no, eliminated. I do not see this as possible in the present relationships of marriage...The only alternative, as I see it, is communal living...I also recognize that, conditions being what they are at the present time, most men feel so secure in their oppressive role that they will not give up their power willingly. Therefore, male-female communes will be impossible to establish. It may be that our only solution will be the dissolution of marrriage, with the foundation of all-female communes to eliminate the burdens placed on women."

    Also in Voices From Women's Liberation, Linda Gordon states: "Families perpetuate themselves and their bad values by educating children to see them as the only models for adult life...The nuclear family must be destroyed, and the people must find better ways of living together."

    On the book entitled The Second Sex published in 1971, Simone de Beauvoir describes a complete lack of satisfaction in motherhood and marriage: "The tragedy of marriage is not that it fails to assure women the promised happiness...but that it mutilates her; dooms her to repetition and routine...At twenty or therabouts mistress of a home, bound permanently to a man, a child in her arms, she stands with her life virtually finished forever. Real activities, real work, are the prerogative of her man: She has mere things to occupy her which are sometimes tiring but never fully satisfying."

    Feminism has always been "haremfeminism" and most accurately seen as the "Women's Selfishness Movement"---and it is against Nature when compared to male/female relations for all creatures on the planet except the disordered. Finally, feminism is against Nature's God whose Lovelution Religion gave mankind, males and females, the transcendental distinctions and nature-based relationship patterns necessary for ultimate salutary human purposes of truth, oneness, good and beauty.

    Dred Scott, Wounded Knee, Fraud Press, Children-To-Be-
    Four places in history.
    Dred Scott, Wounded Knee, Fraud Press, Children-To-Be-
    At each place someone cried.
    Dred Scott, Wounded Knee, Fraud Press, Children-To-Be-
    At each place someone died.
    Dred Scott, Wounded Knee, Fraud Press, Children-To-Be-
    For America committed suicide
    At Dred Scott, Wounded Knee, Fraud Press and Children-To-Be.

    Do not call feminists "women" or "female." They are "haremfeminists" who should be treated equally as males in all things. "Gender" is meaningless since Oberforge v. Hodges which declared mental illnesses to be normal if part of one's "heart of liberty." They want equality--give it to them. No engagement rings, which are the worst sexism ever for centuries. No traditional special considerations as for real women who know and love transcendence. No door openings. No soft ball pitching. No holding back after they hit you--treat them like the "men" they want to be. Always compete and do what you would do if they were men. Otherwise, in their supreme selfishness, they will walk all over you like you are an idiot.

    Thank you, thank you for this article. These type of women just make me want to scream. I can't believe they think they're doing all women a favor by believing and acting this way. It makes it awfully hard to try and trust them. I, like you, find myself relating so much easier to men... must be why I have so many guy friends and very few female friends.

    Ms. Ainsworth’s column needs to be a regular feature (at very least weekly) even after the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh. Her common sense insight into the issues rivals yours, Mike. And I, for one, would eagerly look forward to her take on many of the social issues of today.
    Laura, you are spot on. Emotions have replaced logic and angst overshadows hope today. We who seek to have an honest give-and-take debate on the issues are screamed at and shouted down by a vocal minority who has no logical stance so must resort to cursing and name calling. Since we are talking about logical thinking (or lack there of) of women today, I must say that most women I know and have interacted with over the years are extremely logical. To cite examples: my wife of 53 years whose logic has seen us through some unique situations in our marriage; the majoriy of women I’ve worked with over the years in the IT field. Intricate programming requires firm logic; and lastly, women such as you who don’t see every man as some kind of a beast but as an equal worthy of carrying on logical discourse. Of course, I seen the ugly underbelly well such as what was exhibited immediately after President Trump’s swearing in and almost every day since. So, thank you again, Laura. I look forward to many more insightful words from you.
    Sincerely, Bill

    Thank you for your thoughtful and insightful article. I am feeling the same way. I am a 73 year old former social worker with a Masters in Social Work degree and I had a 35 year career working in that field. I appeared before a lot of judges to testify as to the need to remove children from abusive homes, to protect elderly from being taken advantage of. I was respected by my peers and by those who worked in the courts. I worked hard to be recognized as a professional who could get the job done. This is so embarrassing to see a woman with multiple degrees and professional articles and studies in her history behaving like a little girl in front of the Senate Committee. I couldn't believe my ears or my eyes as I watched her squirming in her seat and preening like a child. I watched as the Senators talked to her in much the same way I imagine they would talk to a child. No hard questions. No hard ball being played. She was a professional and she behaved like a child. I wonder if they took her out for ice cream when she was finished with her testimony! She had NOT been raped, she had barely been groped or fondled!! She destroyed the credibility of thousands of women who over the years had been subjected to horrible actions by men they thought they could trust. Not a teenager their age. These were grown men - pastors, grandfathers, fathers, neighbors, teachers, the local storekeeper and the list could go on and on.

    And they turned their anger on Brett Kavanaugh even though there was NO proor, NO corroborating testimony by witnesses who saw him at that party (if there was a party), NOTHING to prove his presence. She did not know time, place, who was there, why there was a party, how a 15 year old girl got there or how she got home. Judge Kavanaugh was trapped in a corner by ravenous, bloodthirsty DemonRats. He could not fight or argue his way out of it. He got frustrated. I was frustrated for him. They would not listen to common senses, to reason. I don't know who was worse, the women or the men. Corey Booker (who admitted groping a young girl when he was 25)was despicable and so was Blumenthall (Stolen Valor). Feinstein was just awful. She is guilty of setting the whole thing up and I believe she leaked it to the press or had one of her staff do it.

    When did "advise and consent" become a Roman bloodletting circus? I saw the pain, the grief, the horror on the faces of Brett Kavanaugh's family. I saw the self-righteous, hypocritical judgmental pride on the faces of his tormentors. And his accuser seemed pretty smug, and very proud of her performance. They said he avoided answering their questions. I did not see that but I did see her avoid answering questions honestly and refusing to release records such as the transcripts/notes from her therapist and the polygraph test results.

    I worked in mental health for many years as a social worker. Part of that training included ways to control breathing, respirations, pulse rate, etc. to pass a polygraph. I checked with some of my friends from that era and they agreed with me. This woman had been trained in that. It was standard. Later I read that not only had she received the training but she actually wrote a manual on it. And calling up fake memories through self hypnosis. That is a very dangerous area to explore but apparently she is quite versed in that as well.

    Soon women will be just as they are in the Muslim culture, their testimony, their allegations, their witness will not be heard. They will be property! We are in a terrible place as a nation.

    You have said exactly what I think , only better. I, too, had problems with that song even though I knew it was meant as a tribute to women. What saved it is the release, where there is the line, "we've tried acting grown-up..." and "we're all little children..." But, you are right on!

    I have been a "liberated" woman for years, having grown up on a small farm. I feel that a truly liberated woman is someone who has control of her life and doesn't need to scream, and bully others. I am also very tired of women who need to be in therapy taking up time on the news channels, I pay for! Guess what, ladies...I have a life to live! It does not include all of your problems. This country has a lot of good therapist...find one! I mean that with respect...if you are a victim...get help.!!!

    Well if there is any good news here, it's that evil often destroys itself. I don't think most Americans think it's reasonable to scream and yell at members of the Congress, Senate, or administration in their personal life. I think most Americans are beginning to realize these tactics can be used on everyone, and will be if you stand up and disagree. If they go after me or my wife, I plan on demonstrating that we will not be intimidated.

    Now for the practical side. I may have an advantage: I may be louder in my retort than they are when they initiate the confrontation! Ouch!

    John Adams had to defend the British commander blamed for the Boston Massacre. He had a simple, valid point, namely, "Facts are stubborn things". The British commander was found not guilt of ordering the soldiers to fire. Adams' defense was accurate, and it overcame the hysteria.
