Thank You, NOW!


I don’t know if you have been following the campaigns – but I have been getting really sick and tired of all of the crap some of the female candidates have been taking.

Apparently, there was a big tabloid news article about some guy confessing to having had a “one night stand” with Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell.  Wow!  Isn’t that breaking news.  Aren’t these some of the same people that defended Bill Clinton for getting a blow job?  (Joy Behar – who likes to call women candidates she doesn’t agree with  “sluts”)

NOW, the National Organization for Women, is not a group that I would say that I agree with on a regular basis.  I am conservative in my principals and beliefs.  But I have to stand up and applaud and cheer for their President, Terry O’Neill!  To paraphrase, she stood up publicly and said that even though NOW does not endorse Ms. O’Donnell and does not agree with her politics, they also don’t agree with people calling her a whore.  Ms. O’Neill called it “Public Sexual Harrassment.”

When are we just going to learn to take time to respect one another and one another’s feelings.  You know, if there was a little more respect I bet we would see a little less hatred in this world.

“Beloved – let us love one another.”  (to quote the Bible) and it doesn’t go on to say – “but only those we agree with.”

Thank you, Ms. O’Neill.  I appreciate your courage in this matter.

    Unfortunatley, this tabloid behaviour is part of public life. I don’t think anyone cares about a politicans sex life. We are living in the 21st century, aren’t we???

    Well, this is supposed to be the 21st Century – but I think in some ways things have gotten worse.

    Take, for instance, the new Star Trek movie. In the 1960’s, the women wore really short uniforms and were often used as kissing dummies for the “Shat.” In the NEW and IMPROVED Star Trek movie, you didn’t see a whole lot of that. What we did see was the clear statement that LT Uhura made it on board the Enterprise because she was involved in a romantic relationship with Spock.

    So what is the difference? Well, the difference is that in the original films, the lead female character got on the bridge of the Enterprise by being a competant, hard-working, knowledgable Starfleet officer. In the new film, the lead female got on board the Enterprise because she was “romantically involved” with a senior officer.

    It is a subtle difference – but a strong one. I think that in some ways we have gone the wrong direction entirely!
