I Blame It On the Patriot Act

Found this little tidbit from a twitterer I follow. I blame it on the liberties given up when the Patriot Act was passed, and which should be repealed.
Freedoms lost in fear of political events are never returned.

Texas Politics and Women

Hilary Clinton’s remarks to the Women in the World Summit come as Democrats and Republicans fight over issues such as access to birth control. (03/12/2012)

“Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me. But they all seem to. It doesn’t matter what country they’re in or what religion they claim. They want to control women. They want to control how we dress, they want to control how we act, they even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and bodies.”

In newspapers and on TV, there have been numerous reports of efforts from to restrict the rights of women when far right Republicans gain control in Congress and state governments. I have heard these same officials lambasting foreign governments controlled by religious fanatics who restrict the rights of women. And yet these American officials have the gall to use our government to harass women.They continuously try to impose their far-right religious beliefs on our citizens. They reveal their contempt for women and their doctors.

I’m so glad they failed in another of their efforts yesterday. Religious ideology has no place in politics.

Getting down to the nitty-gritty

It appears some of our elected officials are becoming more radical themselves. Good thing this guy is not in my state.

End of an Era

The last American Space Shuttle landed today. The Shuttle Program has given us over 30 years of innovative technology, it will be truly missed.

Video (early morning so kind of dark) of the Shuttle landing and words of farewll from Nasa and Pilots.
