The Democrat’s token abused college coed is actually a 30 year-old hardcore women’s rights activist.



SANDRA FLUKE the 30-year-old student who stirred the debate is no novice to the political arena.


Fluke has a long history of feminist advocacy: The Washington Post reported Fluke entered Georgetown Law well aware that the school’s insurance plan did not cover contraception, only to spend the next three years lobbying the school to change its policy.


“Fluke attended Cornell University from 1999-2003, where she received a B.S. in Policy Analysis & Management and Feminist, Gender, Sexuality Studies.


While at Cornell, Fluke’s organized actives centered around the far-left feminist and gender equity movements. Fluke participated in rallies supporting abortion, protests against war in Iraq and efforts to recruit other women’s’ rights activists to campus.”

During that period, she gained experience engaging in disputes concerning abortion with religious organizations.

“We feel that the information [Cornell Coalition for Life] has out is reactionary, and it’s not based on giving people information about their choices, but manipulating their emotions,” Fluke, then the treasurer of Students Acting for Gender Equality (SAGE), told The Cornell Daily Sun during a protest of a pro-life display at the school’s Ho Plaza. “We want to show people they should have a choice about a decision this important and whatever choice they make, we’ll support it,” she said.

Reproductive rights-Planned Parenthood-abortion-free birth control-gender equity



These are all planks of the Left (Democrat Party) they all deal with sex directly or indirectly, they all deal with women issues,homosexual issues and the left’s agenda to wrap other issues such as health care insurance,religious rights,taxes, into one big package one big assault on morals,religion,taxpayers,the family all based on WOMEN’S RIGHTS it’s my body I can do with what I want (but you gotta pay for it).


Ladies and Gentlemen, you folks with common sense, Sandra Fluke is not the issue, it is what she represents, and that being the never ending assault by the left on all that is good in America. It is a left wing agenda that has but one outcome as far as they are concerned that being     SOCIALISM.  Womb to Tomb government control of each and every one of us…


DEMOCRATS put the contraception issue into play when George Stepanonsense brought this planted “contraception” crap up at the January Republican Debate. This was and is part of the Obama plan,get the female vote, last time it was change a word that most women can relate to and it worked. Now it is reproductive rights  another issue most women can relate to one way or another. 


Women of America you that have common sense,wake up the left is using you to further their SOCIALIST AGENDA

The question must be asked “who is responsible for the mess our country is in”

How did we as a nation elect a Marxist to the office of President of the United States


Nobody held a gun to our head


Nobody threatened our families

WAKE UP AMERICA IT IS TIME TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK FROM THE MARXIST LEFT

Paying Attention While Getting Carried Away

Common sense would tell us that feminists who condemn beauty contests as being unfair to the ill-favored would be happy living in Afghanistan, where beauty pageants are staged for camels, and perhaps they might, if women there also enjoyed a status of citizenship above the level of slave, which they do not. 

Common sense would tell us that delivering the mail has no intrinsic connection to the cost of employee pension benefits, except that common sense considers the Postal Service’s remaining open as being intrinsic to its ability to function.

Common sense would tell us that political spin doctors, the basis of whose livelihood is lying their asses off, are not the ideal commentators for television to offer viewers as disinterested analysts of public policies and personalities. Common sense would tell us that a nation in which teenage girls do not regard fellatio as a sexual activity may not reliably be regarded as a country in which young people are noted for the postponement of pleasure for the sake of superlative academic achievement.

Common sense would therefore seem to tell us that the common run of people understands something that eludes the intelligentsia—that we can’t have our cake and eat it too.

And yet in the election cycle of 2008, common sense neglected to tell us that if we desire something (i.e., the elevation of Barack Obama to the presidency) to the point of delirium, we should for that very reason ask ourselves why the matter is so unbalancing that we neglect to ask ourselves the question, “Just how does he plan to do all that?”

Evidently the ultimate common-sense lesson is that common sense is a dependable basis of behavior except when it fails to kick in.

Why men won’t grow up-husbands and fathers are now optional-“Where Have the Good Men Gone?”

ATTENTION: YOU WILL HEAR A VOICE IN THE BACKGROUND

According to Kay Hymowitz, whose new book, “Manning Up,” was featured prominently in the Wall Street Journal in February, “legions of frustrated young women” are dealing with a new crisis in America: modern men refuse to grow up.

It appears the 21st-century male is living a kind of extended adolescence. In the past, it was assumed men would receive a high-school diploma or college degree, then get married and settle down to the responsibilities of work and family life. Today, young men “hang out in a novel sort of limbo,” keeping adulthood at a distance as they enjoy a lifestyle that demands few, if any, obligations.

The question is why – and how – did this happen? And the answer is simple: feminism.

One of the many side effects of the American feminist movement is that men’s traditional role as family man and provider has been eradicated. Today, men compete with women who are more educated than they and who often make more money. That women suggest they don’t need husbands to be happy – or even to have children – rubs salt in an open wound. The result is that men are stuck in a prepubescent quandary.

Rather than focus exclusively on feminism, however, Ms. Hymowitz blames the predicament men are in on something called “The Knowledge Economy.” The Knowledge Economy, she says, prolongs the maturation process in part because the kinds of jobs men used to get – the ones that forced them to grow up – have been usurped by women.

But why is that? Why are there now more women in college than men, and why are there more women in the workforce than ever before? Because ever since the 1960s, feminists have been telling women this is where they belong. Marriage and motherhood are passé, they said – a woman’s true identity can only be found in the workforce. For today’s pre-adults, “what you do is almost synonymous with who you are … starting a family is seldom part of the picture,” writes Hymowitz.

The reason family life has become an afterthought is because feminism has become thoroughly absorbed in American culture. People don’t have to think about feminism or even acknowledge its presence – it just is. “With women moving ahead in our advanced economy, husbands and fathers are now optional, and the qualities of character men once needed to play their roles – fortitude, stoicism, courage, fidelity – are obsolete, even a little embarrassing,” writes Hymowitz.

The result is that the single guy can live in “pig heaven,” and women give up on the idea of marriage and “just go to a sperm bank and get the DNA without the troublesome man.” Indeed, we may recall Jennifer Aniston’s pronouncement last August: “Women are realizing more and more that you don’t have to settle, they don’t have to fiddle with a man to have that child.”

Wake up, America. If we don’t muster the courage to admit the damage feminism has caused – that it has changed the rules drastically and confused the heck out of women and men – we are headed for extinction. Men and women simply don’t know what to do with each other anymore. Women’s nature tells them sex requires love; marriage is important; children are a blessing; and men are necessary. But our feminist culture tells women to sleep around and postpone family life because that will cost them their identities.

As for the men, they are simply responding to what society expects of them. Contrary to what movies like “He’s Just Not That Into You” suggest, most men want to settle down and have children of their own. Countless men would be happy to do so if they did not have sex so freely available and if their girlfriends weren’t so willing to cohabit. This is an inconvenient truth, to be sure – but that doesn’t make it any less true.

A recent Wall Street Journal asks, “Where Have the Good Men Gone?” The answer is simple: Feminists drove them out. The sooner we face this fact, the sooner we will get the good men back.

Gary Gatehouse Comments
((GETTING IN TOUCH WITH YOUR FEMINE SIDE WHAT’S THAT ALL ABOUT))

I agree with Ms Venker completely, American men today have taken a back seat in society, men have been told such things as it’s okay to cry in public, look no further than the current speaker of the house of Representatives he cries at the drop of a hat. Men have been told for decades, that they are useless,they are not that important anymore in the whole scheme of things, they have been made to look like buffoons on television, Hell they don’t even show up on the radar screen when it comes to producing a child,artificial insemination for women takes the whole male,female relationship out of the equation,

I’m not a huger, I reserve my hugs for my wife,my grand kids, but not other men, my father raised me to respect women, and told me as a male I had a certain responsibility, one to protect women, to protect the family, he taught me never to use foul language around women, he taught me to respect other people. I remember as a young boy,going to my grandmothers house for thanksgiving,Christians etc when the whole family got together, I remember sitting in the living room with the older males of the family, when my grandmother or any of my aunts walked into the room the males stood up in respect and offered them the chair they were sitting in. Not anymore, most males today would never do that in public or otherwise, why, feminism has taught them not too, woman don’t need to be treated any different than a man.

I was in the Dept of Motor vehicles waiting my turn to renew my driver license, there was a young lady standing as there were no chairs available for her, she was holding a infant, NOT ONE MALE THAT OCCUPIED A CHAIR OFFERED IT TO HER, you guessed it I DID.. I found that very disturbing to say the least..

My father taught me to always help a women if she was carrying packages, open the door for her etc, you just don’t see that much anymore. Men have been told by modern day women, I don’t need your help I can do it myself.

It is a different world today the American male’s role in society has changed, they are no longer the same as in decades past, they have truly been put on the back burner by society

Robert Gates’ destruction of the military

Two years ago, for the first time since Nixon, I did not attend the Presidential Inauguration. I went instead to the Holy Land to pray for a country that would elect a man without leadership or executive credentials, a tragically unqualified rhetorical celebrity – and give him control of Congress.

I also prayed for our new president, who needs all our prayers. Thankfully, the people, and the tea party, realizing their error, recently elected a new Congress in which the House began, for the first time, with a reading of the Constitution, a document second only to the Bible in historical import (amazingly, some on the left criticized the reading!); and required that future congressional actions have constitutional authority. Imagine that! And Secretary of Defense Robert Gates leaves this year. From anguish to elation in two years – is this a great country or what?

My friends at the inauguration noted that for the first time in memory a president did not attend the veterans Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball. Some, in defending the president’s no-show, have demeaned the veterans ball, calling it merely one of dozens of unofficial balls not coordinated by the Presidential Inaugural Committee. It was coordinated with the PIC, is one of a handful of major balls and, traditionally, the only ball honoring veterans and Medal of Honor recipients. While it is true that the majority of veterans supported John McCain, they were looking forward to the new president’s visit and sorely disappointed when he did not show.

Not only was President Obama the only presidential no-show at the veterans ball, he also ignored, or was ignorant of, military tradition by failing to salute the only living Medal of Honor recipient since Vietnam, during White House ceremonies.

I can assure you that the recipient was not offended, but many veterans were. My point is that President Obama is militarily challenged. He believes he can man down and emasculate the military, civilianize and hollow it (you can’t civilianize the military – should they vote on leaders and missions – or unionize?) without readiness consequences.

Unfortunately, in his efforts to learn the difference between Corps and corpse, the president kept the incumbent secretary of defense, Robert Gates. He knew Gates would be a willing ally in re-hollowing and quad-sexualizing (changing a heterosexual military to one populated by heterosexual, homosexual bisexuals and transgender people) the military as well as feminizing combat units, but no one could predict the damage this man would do. He will rank with Robert McNamara in the defense halls of infamy.

What do the fighting men of our military think about the homosexualization of the armed forces? Find out in the Whistleblower magazine edition “Dropping the H-Bomb”

Under his watch: The Pentagon admits it cannot identify where millions of dollars go (Gates is covering for his fiscal inefficiencies by huge defense cuts, cuts that will have no economic effect and that he will not have to live with); nor can it identify the remains in over 200 graves at Arlington, which is an administrative disaster; the op-tempo is from hell (60 out of 80 months deployed is not atypical) – contributing to unprecedented rates of suicide and PTSD among soldiers and depression and anxiety in their families. As a further blow to morale, Gates hopes to cut the force, is mutilating the Marine Corps and is proposing the smallest pay raise since 1962! Plus, he’s demanding the military do more with less – a familiar term to service members that simply demands more sacrifice from them.

Initially a media darling, since the debacle with Rolling Stone magazine, Gates has set unprecedented media access controls. Still, under his leadership, more state secrets have been compromised – causing immeasurable damage – than at any time in history. He has allowed the premier combat life saver, aeromedical evacuation (once revered as Dust Off), to be stripped from the medics. This is the first time a medical resource has been so usurped since the Civil War, and I have heard horror stories from the battlefield on delayed reaction times. (I actually had a soldier from Iraq turn his back on me when I told him I was once a Dust Off pilot.)

Under Gates’ watch, soldiers’ Bibles were destroyed to avoid annoying Muslims. There can be no excuse for the military to burn Bibles. They would be court-martial for destroying Qurans. It may be a surprise to Vietnam veterans that Congress authorized a program to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War and honor its veterans; but it will be no surprise the funds have been cut. And now Gates wants women to join homosexuals, transgenders and bisexuals in foxholes. In order to quad-sexualize the military, Gates is assaulting traditional morality to “educate” soldiers and their families on the value of homosexual conduct. Soon to come our mothers and sisters will be reprogramed to kill. As if all this were not enough, his military actually considered giving medals for not shooting! Then there was the terrorist attack at Fort Hood. I could go on. Next: veterans’ benefits.

Amazingly, some blame uniformed military for the Pentagon calamity, and others believe soldiers start wars! This may shock some, but Gates, for four years, has led the Pentagon. Civilians control the military, and soldiers do not start wars. Soldiers hate war. As a leader, Gates is responsible for what his subordinates do or fail to do; he can delegate his authority but not his responsibilities. He is responsible for the Pentagon catastrophe, which is unprecedented in my lifetime.

Gates’ predecessor, Donald Rumsfeld, despite the media hatchet job on him, was a man’s man, a fighter pilot, an athlete, an exceptional businessman with vast experience in elected office as well as the Pentagon – a tough act to follow, especially for someone fresh out of a university lounge. Weak leaders often try to project an image of toughness by “kicking a–.” Gates kicked a lot of a– firing two service secretaries, a chairman of the joint chiefs, the Army surgeon general and other good men – all more qualified than he. He never understood where the buck stops. It stops with him. He should have fired himself long ago.

President Obama promised to fundamentally transform America, including the Defense Department. The problem is neither America nor her military needed transformation – they needed leadership.

The Obama/Gates military transformation is historic and the damage it will do unprecedented. Why transform our military unique in its excellence and the vault for our freedoms? But it will happen unless the people and Congress recognize and stop this insanity
