Stand up, ladies!
Stand up and fight!
Kick off those ridiculously high heels and fight like real women!
We are losing ground and must begin over again in legal terms. The truth is, what's been happening via the nastier side of Republicanism is purely unconstitutional, and we know it.
Now, whoever knows or understands what defeat is in Congress just might get upset a little bit over the next statement, but it would appear they have been bamboozled or otherwise forced into allowing this jerk concept of political freedom to rule us again.
We have to re-interpret the causes of this democracy's faltering steps before it is too late. We have to lay the political smack down!
We have to blog like it's a life and death matter, because for some, it surely is and will be.
For one thing, it's the women who are most often apt to blog, although not for political reasons. In many a blogging arena, in and around our blogosphere, I see literally thousands of women painting, creating, poeticizing, and so forth, to beat the band, but fewer than one in ten seems apt to blog about her rights, let alone "where'd they go?"
I feel pretty miffed that we are worshipping TV and fashion and all the so-called girly stuff the media tells us we should buy into. It's crap, and must be regarded as such. For example, I do not require to force my feet and ankles to contort painfully into 7" high heeled shoes so I may conform with someone else's idea of what's fashionable or feminine. Who can run and get away from any potential attacker in such heavyduty and uglifying shoes, anyway? They make the platform shoes of my youth look tame and even low to the ground by comparison. They make my feet ache just to look at them.
And without the ability to run, who dodges traffic well enough, either?
The signal shoe ads alone send our children is abominable. "You are unworthy of enjoying comfort," say these ads for the new super-high heels. "We want you sexifying yourselves before you're 18, not safely interacting with young men and boys."
The truth is, during every economic downturn, heels on women's shoes seem to speak of women needing to grovel before men will take notice of them.
Women older and younger must be brave enough to say We've had enough lies, deceit and propaganda directed towards our minds and we want reform which sticks and isn't removable.
Personal freedom shouldn't even be a debatable issue any longer.
We have been duped and double-dealt, and now must defend our national heritage from the cynicism which is currently prevalent, and which the media seem more than ready to add to.
Cynicism was not what fired Dr. King's worthy cause. And it does not stand up and speak the truth in terms best used when freedom's challenged.
Women must hear it from each other. We must begin to share with each other what this lapse in freedom actually means in practical terms so it can be dealt with head on! And on a person-to-person basis.
There is no time like the present.
Men, support your wives and girlfriends, your sisters, daughters, moms and coworkers. Don't allow any further ground to be lost. Speak out! Share the truth!
Women, speak out and become more aware. Share your views! Not to do so is undemocratic, as is to bury one's head in the sands of economic trouble.
Don't buy into propaganda.
The propaganda machine wants you and your daughters to defend your country, but it won't defend you if you come home wounded in mind or body from a misplaced war.
That's ugly, but it is the truth as one woman sees it.
Take care, Congress! The world sees all, and history will record who lost and who gained by this latest rash of woman-killing political moves.
And get wise, American men! Your wives aren't free anymore. Neither are your daughters. And so long as even one person here is not free, then nobody is really free--that would include the American male.
Peace to any reading my words.
