It is sad to me how few people directly participate in their government or it’s decision making process. Especially in today’s age when it is so easy to reach out and voice an opinion.

I was raised during the Vietnam war era I wasn’t identified as protest. The term used was civil disobedience. You may disagree with me engaging in civil disobedience. That’s ok I supported our troops I did not support the war.

I attended a Tea Party rally in SF.

The "black eyeshades people" photographed us, found our cars, and towed them.

And put us in a list, so that anytime later, if our cars were spotted, they'd be towed again.

Crazy? This is what the guy who runs the tow lot told me. On the third time I retrieved my car from him. He told me that I needn't bother with hanging my handicap placard; I'd be towed anyway. He felt sorry for me.

Nice try - the victim cycle belongs to lefties.

I am not a victim at all- those that march to support one race or one gender over others obviously think they are victims thus rendering some of the other races and some of the other 51 genders as the oppressors.

Not sure how I can be a victim when I don’t march as the oppressed.
Pretty sure logic dictates if you’re marching as or with the oppressed- it signifies that you are a victim or support the concept the victim is trying to propagate.

Pretty sure those that don’t believe they are victims can’t be classified as victims but then again I have never been to a resistance meeting so I don’t specialize in victimhood.

It is another nice try though but boomerangs always find their mark even when you try to duck.

What was the Women’s March point?

DJAria Coushatta, LA
11/23/19 9:47 am

The point? It was to acknowledge that women still face many differences in the workplace. It was to rebuke President Trump’s words in the Access Hollywood Tape. It was to affirm that women are just as qualified to get a job done (if not more) than men. There were a lot of reasons, but that’s why I marched.

To rebuke a Presidents locker room talk?

I know it is embarrassing to realize how hypocritical your stance is but the truth will set you free.

Sanctimonious hypocrites.

DJAria Coushatta, LA
11/23/19 3:16 pm

Marching was merited because when Trump said those horrible things, he was still widely backed by millions of Americans. That meant that a march needed to take place to affirm that women were respected and treated as equals. If you can’t see that, I don’t know how to help you.

nacho1 Logic Land

He is still widely backed by millions of Americans that realize it was lockerroom talk and was just another uncouth thing out of his mouth - and the hysterical reaction was typical.

The march supported by Weinstein, Lauer, Franken, Schniedermann, Les Monvess, Morgan Freeman and others credibly accused of sexual misconduct making it a lefty joke.

You need a US march to affirm women are equal?
Doesn’t the fact that they hold multiple positions of extreme power and esteem influence in the US make that point obvious?

Perhaps a Women’s March in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, China, India or Darfur would be more appropriate.

There has never been a woman President. Less than 25% of our Congress is composed of women. A vast majority of major companies are headed by men. Women are constantly forced to work harder to achieve less. It’s sad.

nacho1 Logic Land
11/23/19 8:26 pm

Women have the ability to give birth and create life - that makes them special,unique and important.
Women make different choices than men and sometimes leave the workforce either permanently or temporarily because of their unique ability to create life - that should be celebrated. I am for parental leave and all the benefits to make it easier for them to succeed.
Their equality should not be measured by their representation in politics and business with regards to their demographics - it is the same stupid disparate impact theory that Obama’s wingman AG pursued in housing discrimination.

When a qualified, relatable woman runs for President she very well may be elected - so far none has been able to reach that threshold.

nacho1 Logic Land
11/23/19 8:35 pm

There are more women teachers than men, more women nurses than men, more women social workers and counselors than men - does that mean men are discriminated against in those professions?

Or perhaps there are extenuating circumstances as to choices of profession?

It just seems like a problem to me when there hasn’t been a woman president out of 45... and half the population is women. It is true that more teachers are female... but more professors (higher rung) are men (54% white men). As someone who has worked in academia my whole life, I know the difficulties young women face.

Additionally, there are less female doctors (higher rung than nurses) than male, and of those female doctors, they are paid 25% less than their male counterparts. If you cannot see all the problems women face — whether in the medical community, academia, corporate America, politics, or virtually any other area — I don’t know how to help you see it. The statistics are there, and women are less dominant at the top of fields than men. Women are less likely to be promoted than men. Women are paid less than men in the same field.

You simply ignore career choices, lifestyle and the miracle of childbirth with all that dribble.

When I list professions with more women you immediately dismiss it and show professions with more men and decide that it’s sexist for the men but not for the women because those professions pay less - guess what - a professor has to go to school more than a teacher - same as the nurse doctor dynamic - what could be the cause of women not choosing to take on the extra responsibility and longer education?
Maybe, just maybe, it’s because that have the ability to give birth, need time to nurture and grow with their children and decide I want to be a mom more than a professor or dr so I will cut back a bit because my maternal instinct is to take care of what came from my womb.
Alternatively you can believe America is a sexist society with rampant discrimination that keeps women subjugated - which reason sounds more plausible and logical?

DJAria Coushatta, LA
11/24/19 11:11 am

The second sounds more plausible and logical, as women shouldn’t be expected to stay at home and raise children or put their career aside for their family. Men generally aren’t expected to do that, so why should women be? You just exposed one of the largest problems.

Thankfully, more women than men are enrolling in university and medical school now. Times are changing.

nacho1 Logic Land
11/24/19 11:37 am

Women are not expected to do’s anything - millions upon millions “choose” to do it - remember “choice” is paramount to lefties.

It’s only becomes sexist when millions of women don’t “choose” to follow a career path that takes them away from their family and instead do the most important job in the world - being there for their children when they need to be.

I know it goes against progressive dogma that women that have their children be the focal point of their life is so sexist, disgusting and Neanderthal of us to believe that women are natural nurturers and society is better served when a parent is home full time as caregiver during and after children’s formative years.
I guess we can put you in the category of “science denier” along with those disgusting “science deniers on climate change”.
