“Ladies, I don't know about you, but when I'm choosing a political party I want the one that makes sexist jokes, insists that I don't deserve the same pay as men, and thinks I should leave my contraceptive choices to my employer. And gerrymanders state lines for their own purposes, cuz we women are too stupid to vote. And if you live in WI cuts Badger care for working people.”

“maybe not that there are pics of dead children who have been gased in Syria, this company could use that too. You boys and girls who think its funny, come to court and listen for hours about domestic violence against women and children. It starts like this.”

“It works for CNN, NBC, and other TV stations. Why do you think they put the most horrific stories at the top of their announcements? They want your eyes for ratings, so they tease you with "breaking news" and "top story at 6" previews of the horrible tragedy of the day.”

“It's great companies are progressive thinkers; however, why does not one business come out pro birth control ? I don't expect someone to say "abortion is great" But how about really talking human rights and advocating for educating people and making affordable birth control, esp. for women getting cancer screenings, etc. Then less unwanted pregs Planned Parenthood being attacked; concerned about N. Dakota and other states going anti birth control. from Wisconsin we know the Republican mantra "divide and conquer."”

“People who are convicted felons cannot vote until their voting rights are restored, which is not easy in most states. Good lawyers help wealthy people get better deals. Example: Rush Limbaugh who was taking basically prescription meds for his own uses got busted, but then he used a powerful attorney to help him. Many minorities, low income people in general are busted for small drug offenses and get fines and some time to do in jail. Well, they lose their job at McDonalds, etc. It continues a downward spiral. Example two: here in WI, there is Scott Walker redistricting. Before a major election, just "remap" the areas. Make them stupid people run/walk/beg to a new voter place. Didn't say we would provide them the info. That's their work. And make them go to the driver's license place to ge a picture ID. But wait. State cutbacks. Shorten those hours too. It's one thing on top of another. While you Libetarians are screaming about guns, you don't give a rat's butt about redistricting, driver's license places locations or hours. Or mandatory sentencing which has been hell on families. But that's ok. We'll have the wealthy Chinese immigrants, etc, coming to this country and we'll use them as an example of how "minorities" should act. Don't bother telling others they came with money. Low income, keep 'em down and out. Then appoint a manager like in Detroit.
That's how republicans like it.”

“American products can't compete because of subsidies and price fixing by China; (hey, they just kill girl babies that get in the way) even Republicans admit it the subsidies are crazy. Second, "capitalistic' is it capitalistic to see families dissolve because corporations, who are "individuals" under law, do not compete on a level playing field ? How about some enforcement of poor judgments by companies. Let's take your friends of dick cheney at Haliburton. Suck the taxpayers dry on war but then don't supply the army vests. (ask army families about it) Thats not capitalism. Thats fraud by huge money corporations as "individuals".”

“Paul Ryan will take care of you, right? Austerity. Divide and conquer, per Koch Brothers, the oil billionaires, plan. Tea Party, no govt good, And then private industry no pensions good. We are heading back to the 1950s, only with Gay rights in the workforce cuz as Dolly Parton jokingly said, "why shouldn't they be as miserable as the rest of us."”

“Wisconsin, Gov/Czar Scott Walker is pushing for open-pit deep mind in Norther WI. It will be at least 4.5 miles long, drilling 1,000 plus feet deep. Do you know the amt. of water this will require? Plus, the WI republicans have tied the hands of Dept. of Natural Resources, which regulates environment in state. DNR's budget is cut, the permitting process has been severely cut by not allowing for public input. READ that anti-govt. folks. This will be the biggest open-pit mine in the world. Taconite Mine.
And Republicans have agreed to CUT revenues collected by local communities. So unlike Minesota this mine will not be on a tonnage basis but a Net basis. It must be nice to take money from the mining/oil industries. Then go back to Texas, many of the new hires, the "experts".
So all you Illinois folks with WI cabins, you might want to read about this. Here come the trucks down your road.”

Luke 4:1-13: Giving Up Guns for Lent

“Still,this Lent season my thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost someone they love due guns and violence. Its not about politics, online gun owning boys. Its about mothers who are tired of burying their children; fathers heartbroken by loss of their family. How about reflection of what it means to be prepared in case of an emergency. Or is it to use a weapon against an ex-girlfriend, because that's what happens too often. Reflection. Meditation. Prayer Lets start with being un-armed.
A mom who cried for too many children lost to violence. amen.”

“Mothers who are tired of burying their children. 646 children under 13 were murdered in 2011 only 119 were murdered with guns.
Thats right - 5 out of 6 murdered kids killed without guns,
But I think your passage goes towards cars - 6500 children are killed in car accidents annualy - 58 times more then with firearms”
