Let them eat cake….New Mantra

Today I read a response to a meme that shook me to the core.
By now, we’ve mantraall seen the meme:

 

I wasn’t enraged because the response was vicious or cursed – on the contrary: It was elitist and dismissive and only one sentence:

“Mountains,out of mole hills….typical.”

Thus…it garnered an immediate response.  But NOT my typical response.  NO:

“It might be an entirely different “mole hill” if your daughter, wife or son was: black, gay, Jewish, disabled, sexually assaulted or abused, killed or raped.

Of course that never happens, does it? Or maybe it just doesn’t happen to you. And the defense of the assaulter can always state that “It’s just a mole hill” – can’t they? Now they can – now they have a green light.

THAT may now be the “typical” – let them eat cake. The Twitter feeds were lit up with “The minute T wins, I’m gonna grab me the nearest pussy.” (Hundreds literally) NONE of this is typical – and I’m offended to my very core.”

YES: I’m offended.
YES: I’m scared that hate, bigotry and permissiveness is the new Mantra of our highest office.  

And if YOU’RE not scared – your mountain must be very high indeed.

All Women in the cross hairs….What are you willing to give up?

Senator Elizabeth Warren on Planned Parenthood

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren is a touchstone to women’s rights and middle/low income America. I stand with Planned Parenthood and every service that they provide – to every woman.

The rights that we fought for in the 70’s and 80’s are founded on sacrifice and tears. Why doesn’t the GOP propose legislation – or Angel funding – or adoption that will sponsor a mother through pregnancy and the child through college, that is if they are truly concerned with the fetus and the eventual child?

This will never happen – as it is not their concern or agenda.

I think we need to ask each and every GOP Legislator what exactly IS their agenda. I, for one, will never surrender my rights, my children’s rights or my great great grandchildren’s rights as women.

Never give up.  Never surrender!
