  • [From Nov. 2, 2011] Rand Paul Defends Herman Cain – Complains that Women Can’t Take a Joke

    10/18/2014 6:55:44 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 31 replies
    So Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.), who likes to tie women up and leave them in a creek is complaining that women are entirely too sensitive these days, that “they can’t take a joke.” As he told the National Review “There are people now who hesitate to tell a joke to a woman in the workplace, any kind of joke, because it could be interpreted incorrectly. I don’t. I’m very cautious.”

    ome revolutions happen in a single day; others over decades. The rise of the voluntarily single woman has been happening in Western societies slowly, over time, concomitant with well-paying jobs, legal protection from economic or physical abuse, reliable birth control and the possibility of fulfilling careers and adventures. Women are marrying at a later age these days, cohabiting with their partners or going in and out of short-term relationships without ever walking down the aisle. Currently, 53% of women over 18 are in the singles column. Put another way, women now have choices that allow them to customize the arc...

    The Democrats’ “war on women” strategy has always been frivolous and intellectually dishonest, and it is now being revealed as ineffective, too. Let us call the roll: Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Kentucky secretary of state hoping to oust Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, is trailing in the polls in spite of being a cause célčbre for the Hollywood Left — Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Katzenberg have lavished Manhattan and Beverly Hills money upon her race — even after having engaged in such questionable shenanigans as attempting to portray Senator McConnell, an original cosponsor of the Violence Against Women Act, as...

    SPARTANBURG, South Carolina — Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) argued here at a women’s forum hosted by Palladian View that President Barack Obama is waging a war on women. “For the last six years under President Obama, 3.7 million have entered poverty,” Cruz said in opening remarks before taking questions from local reporters on a panel. “Under President Obama, the median income for women has dropped by $733. You want to talk about a war on women? That’s a war on women.”

    IS militants have controlled Mosul since June 10, the second day of a major offensive that saw jihadist fighters seize swathes of land in five Iraqi provinces. They have used the city, Iraq's second largest, as a de facto capital for the Iraqi half of the "caliphate" which their leadership proclaimed in June and also includes large parts of Syria. "After going after the ethnic and religious minorities, they are now hunting down Sunni members of civil society groups and anyone remotely connected with the government," Edwar said.

The latest example comes from the University of Colorado Boulder, where administrators posted an online notice last week informing students that their university-provided employment would be capped at 25 hours per week as a result of the Affordable Care Act.

    Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) has one strategy to ensure his reelection: Resurrect the morally and intellectually bankrupt “War on Women.” This effort has centered primary on promoting the fact that Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) once backed a personhood measure as a state-level lawmaker. He has since abandoned that position and embraced more politically savvy policies like those which would increase access to over-the-counter contraceptives. Even Politifact has been forced, reluctantly, to call out Udall’s ads which claim Gardner “championed” personhood measures in the Centennial State as “half true.”Nevertheless, Udall’s campaign is clinging desperately to this line of attack against...

    Folks, when I saw what the Democrats are doing to this American black woman in Utah, I had to sound the alarm. Black Republican Mia Love is running for Congress in Utah. Love's liberal opponent and the Democrats have pulled out all the stops, launching a hate website against her, “No love for Mia,” and a $300,000 smack-down ad campaign trashing the sister. Meanwhile, hypocritically, they accuse Republicans of having a war on women. Folks, it amazes me that Democrats, the MSM, and liberals continue to get away with their scam, portraying themselves as champions of minority empowerment.

    So much for that moderate Islam. (via Religion of Peace) South Africa’s controversial first gay-friendly mosque, which also allows Christian worshippers and women to lead prayers, was damaged by a fire overnight, its founder and the police said Saturday. I’m not sure how this even qualifies as a mosque if there are Christians leading prayers. Clearly a lot of Muslims felt the same way. The mosque has faced fierce criticism and threats of violence from Muslims with 14 national and provincial organizations representing the Muslim community across South Africa issuing a joint statement condemning Hargey’s plans.According to an AFP report,...

    Of the many things that could be compared to candidates for governor, a wedding dress has to rank pretty low on the list. But the College Republican National Committee did just that with its series of “Say Yes to the Candidate” ads, spoofs on the “Say Yes to the Dress” reality show that airs on TLC. First up was an ad comparing the “Rick Scott,” a modern dress favored by the bride, to the “Charlie Crist,” an “outdated” model favored by the bride’s mother.

    There's really only one thing that progressives get wrong: human nature. This leads them into error on economics, where they imagine they can micromanage billions of individual decisions every day; foreign policy, in which they overestimate the appeal of "talks" and underestimate the ferocity and opportunism of aggressors; and sex, in which, well, where to begin? California proposes to stop campus rape and sexual assault with a law redefining consent. Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation last week specifying that verbal consent must precede all sexual activity. Further, consent cannot be given if someone is incapacitated by drugs or alcohol. Twenty...

"We still struggle with violence against women and harmful cultural norms that tell women how they are expected to look and act." The first lady, meanwhile, made no mention of women who are regularly raped and beaten in Afghanistan, forced to kill their female babies in...

    Who runs the world? In these six societies: Girls. By standard definition, a matriarchy is a “family, group or state governed by a matriarch (a woman who is head of a family or tribe).” Anthropologists and feminists have since created more specific classifications for female societies, including the matrilineal system. Matrilineality refers not only to tracing one’s lineage through maternal ancestry, it can also refer to a civil system in which one inherits property through the female line. While the legendary Amazons (probably the most widely known matriarchy) are relegated to mythology, there are a handful of female-led societies...

I’m all in favor of combating sexual assault, but the first priority in combating a problem is understanding it. That’s not the White House’s first priority. Roughly six weeks before Election Day, its chief concern is to translate an exciting social-media campaign into a get-out-the-vote operation. Accurate statistics are of limited use in that regard because rape and sexual assault have been declining for decades. So the Obama administration and its allied activist groups trot out the claim that there is...

"That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University's core values."

Immediately a current “hot topic” came to mind, but as usual I quickly discarded it because I have purposely avoided publicly disagreeing with the passionate opinions of many of my female peers and friends. After weeks of contemplation and debate, I am “being bold” and coming clean: I am a female Marine officer and I do not believe women should serve in the infantry.

Critics would say that while it has placed a spotlight on violence against women, that isn’t at all synonymous with “domestic violence.” Because studies show that most domestic violence may actually be violence against men. This has just been brought to light by Guardian columnist Glen Poole, who recently asked why British actress Kelly Brook has “got away with punching two men”?

They could easily conceal bombs, and seeing that they have US passports, this raises the frightening prospect that they could be sent back to the US on Suicide Bombing missions. The recruitment of women in the U.S. is done by radicalized members of the community or online, again demonstrating ISIS’ recruitment capability using social media and other technology platforms. Women are the new face of Jihad, which will keep evolving in this war of ideology.

    So the Peshmerga, Iraqi Kurdistan’s army and the main force battling Islamic State militants in northern Iraq, includes female recruits. They’re media darlings—and a welcome contrast to Islamic State’s rigid subjugation of women. The narrative of women soldiers fighting against violently misogynistic religious extremists is an appealing one. Sure enough, foreign reporters have fallen madly in love with these Pesh women. But this celebration of the liberated Kurdish woman warrior is overblown. Kurdish society is still deeply conservative by Western standards. And almost none of these women have done any actual fighting.

Apparently, suggesting that women should not do things likely to put them at risk makes me “vile”...

    Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, stopped at a Hobby Lobby store in her district on Wednesday – not to pick up some craft supplies for one of her kid’s school projects, but to alert people to the store’s existence and urge people not to shop there. “I want people to know that this Hobby Lobby is here and they should vote with their purses and their pocketbooks, and women should not shop here. If you didn’t know this Hobby Lobby was here before, know it now and don’t shop here. They don’t...

    Female IDF paramedics' fight for life The resuscitation attempts inside moving tanks, the ceaseless shooting, the burnt aroma in the air – four paramedics, some of the only women who served in Gaza for a long period of time, tell of days filled with pain and pride.

    You’re not imagining it: There really are differences between the way men and women diet, lose weight and respond to exercise. Some of the differences stem from biology; other differences are behavioral. But though many of these seem to give men a head start, they shouldn’t be taken to imply that guys have it easy. No matter who you are or where you’re starting, the road to your ideal weight is difficult at best, and confusing for most. But the information that researchers are unearthing about the differences in the way that men and women lose weight inspires hope that...

    The cost of a product that half the world’s population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply too much.When I got my first period, I was in the most embarrassing place my then-11-year-old self could have imagined: my grandparents’ house. I wasn’t sure what to do, so I just put on extra pairs of underwear and threw them away one-by-one, scrunched at the bottom of the bathroom trash bin, as I bled through them. Finally, with nary a pair of panties in sight, I was forced to tell my mother. I have never been...

    American Thinker ^ | August 15, 2014 | Jeff Lipkes
    Very few individuals who were not politicians or generals have had a major impact on American political history. Phyllis Schlafly is one of the exceptions. Twice. In 1964, she helped launch the grass-roots conservative movement that flourishes today, transformed by the internet, and in 1972 she inaugurated what came to be called “social conservatism.” More than any other individual, she was responsible for the nomination of Barry Goldwater, and thus, indirectly, Ronald Reagan. And virtually single-handedly, she defeated the so-called Equal Rights Amendment. Schlafly was born 90 years ago today in St. Louis, the daughter of John and Odile Stewart....

    What did you do before you joined the mail order service? I just graduated from college. Why get into it? I was young and didn’t have clear intentions, just curiosity What was the appeal to the US? Russians have a romanticized vision of US – that is free, cool, and a land of opportunity. What were your perceptions of the US before you came? Has your experience been anything like what you were expected since your divorce? Perceptions before I came were shaped by Hollywood – so white picket fence and two story house with two kids and a dog....
