"...Racism vs. Sexism Death Match, the futile, angry attempts to decide which one is worse, more pervasive, more evil; which accounts for one candidate's success and the other's struggles. Both are terrible, both are still pervasive -- and both are far less pernicious than they were even a generation ago."
From Joan Walsh, Salon.


This is for the women out there that say they will vote McCain, now that Hillary Clinton has suspended her campaign. It is time to stop threatening to use your precious vote against your own best interest. An LA Times story gives us just a glimspe of what you will get with McCain.
John McCain, after his release as a POW, said only men belong in battle. He stands by his record.

Soon after the Gulf War in 1991, a group of military women pressed Congress to allow female pilots to fly combat missions. But a Vietnam War hero in the Senate, John McCain, pushed back hard.

"The purpose of the military is first to defend this nation's vital security interests throughout the globe and only second to ensure equality," the Arizona Republican argued on the Senate floor, framing the issue in a way that infuriated feminists.
[...]
McCain's aides said only that he stood by his past positions, suggesting that he would resist pressures for change.

In the 1991 debate over women pilots, McCain took a traditionalist stance. "This nation has existed for over 215 years," McCain said. "At no time in the history of our nation have women been in combat roles."
[...]
McCain's long-standing opposition to women in combat has raised questions among his critics about his commitment to women's rights.

Women's groups say he has a weak legislative record on such issues as equal pay and workplace discrimination, and his support has lagged among female voters.

As a lawmaker, critics say, McCain sometimes has had strained relations with women in power. Former Rep. Patricia Schroeder (D-Colo.), who spearheaded the effort to grant women the right to fly in combat, called McCain a product of a "guy culture."

"He has always had trouble dealing with women as equals," Schroeder said.
[...]
In an interview with Navy public relations officials after his release, McCain said women should never be allowed to enter combat. "Some of the people that might capture them can be pretty mean," he said.
Then there is this regarding his dismissal of equal pay legislation. “They need the education and training, particularly since more and more women are heads of their households, as much or more than anybody else,” McCain said. “And it’s hard for them to leave their families when they don’t have somebody to take care of them. The issue in this legislation was not education, it was about women getting the same pay as their men counterparts for the same job.

The NYT reported the following exchange with a reporter in Iowa in March 2007:
Q: "What about grants for sex education in the United States? Should they include instructions about using contraceptives? Or should it be Bush's policy, which is just abstinence?"
McCain: (Long pause) "Ahhh. I think I support the president's policy."

Q: "So no contraception, no counseling on contraception. Just abstinence. Do you think contraceptives help stop the spread of HIV?"
McCain: (Long pause) "You've stumped me."
He has said he supports overturning Roe. V Wade. He has called his own wife a vulagarity that shocks the most unshockable of women, he wants to keep you in your place, you know, He has an 83% rating with the Christian Coalition, and still embraces the late Jerry Falwell who, after the attacks of 911, said "I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way -- all of them who have tried to secularize America -- I point the finger in their face and say "you helped this happen." To which, Pat Robertson - who is still very much alive - replied, "Well, I totally concur." Is this what you will vote for? Is this what you worked so hard to achieve?

To all the 'Harriets' of the world... PLEASE don't say you are a feminist and then say you will vote McCain. He is a sexist of the worst kind. He wants to keep the little women in their place. Don't think for one minute that the sexism you feel is worse than anyone else's. Senator Clinton was right, there are 18 million more cracks in that glass ceiling. McCain, I promise, will just replace that glass with shatterproof materials.

Sexism is sexism, yours is no more immoral than anyone else's. We have work to do in this nation regarding BOTH racism and sexism. We need to come together for the party that does ultimately support tearing down walls and shattering glass ceilings.

:peace: and
Raine

Mornin' Raine,

Another stormy morning here in Tulsa. I almost e-mailed my old friend (the rabid Hillary supporter) with a partner who are both sure that they will vote for McCain since Hillary didn't get the nomination. But I think I'll wait a while longer, I hope that they both will come around. I can't and won't live in McCain's America Thanks for the great post :D

Cheers,

mfaye

McCain is such an idiot. He says he's "stumped" when asked if contraceptives prevent the spread of HIV? This is the guy that's going to appoint the Surgeon General and the head of the Dept of Education?



No. Not if I can help it.

And yeah I thought that quote was pretty intense as well random.

Great post Raine. To my friends (online and in real life) that have become "bitter" and say they'll vote for McCain.......... I have told them that I will call/write them EVERY SINGLE TIME A SOLDIER DIES IN IRAQ!! Every time!!! I will hold them responsible, because in a way, they will be part of that death.

Good morning, bloggers!!



We had some rough storms this weekend. No damage right by me, but some property near me was damaged by storms and tornadoes.



Raine, an excellent blog entry. Sadly, bigotry is still with us. John McCain has shown great insensitivity to women's issues, and I don't think that any of Clinton's supporters should vote for him. To cast a vote out of spite is unworthy of those who have worked, fought and even died to guarantee all Americans the right to vote.



The UNN Daily Headlines are up. I will be blogging here while adding a few more.

It's official: Caribbean monk seal is extinct

MSNBC

updated 2:42 p.m. CT, Fri., June. 6, 2008



After five years of futile efforts to find or confirm sightings of any Caribbean monk seals — even just one — the U.S. government on Friday announced that the species is officially extinct and the only seal to vanish due to human causes.



"Humans left the Caribbean monk seal population unsustainable after overhunting them," Kyle Baker, a biologist for the National Marine Fisheries Service, said in a statement. "Unfortunately, this led to their demise and labels the species as the only seal to go extinct from human causes."







This depresses me. Imagine if you will, an artist who has bequeathed incredible paintings to a museum and the curators either willing destroy some of the art or allow it to decay into nothing. This is a thousand times worse, particularly to someone like myself who has religious beliefs and wonders what a Creator thinks of those destroying Creation. If we do not change course soon, we may have a greatly diminished world to give to our descendants who will look on what we have lost with great sorrow.



Rest in peace, Caribbean monk seal. There are some of us who swear that we will try to do better for the rest of life on the planet Earth.

I didn't find it overly oppressive at all. Today might make it to 100º, though. Big Thunder coming tomorrow, but if the 'weathermen' are as accurate as they have been all spring, it'll probably be 50º and fog.

The first Mrs. McCain speaks...



The wife U.S. Republican John McCain callously left behind

For nearly 30 years, Carol has maintained a dignified silence about the accident, McCain and their divorce. But last week at the bungalow where she now lives at Virginia Beach, a faded seaside resort 200 miles south of Washington, she told The Mail on Sunday how McCain divorced her in 1980 and married Cindy, 18 years his junior and the heir to an Arizona brewing fortune, just one month later.

[.....]

H. Ross Perot, a billionaire Texas businessman, future presidential candidate and advocate of prisoners of war, paid for her medical care.

[...]



But friends say privately he was ‘appalled’ by the change in her appearance. At first, though, he was kind, assuring her: ‘I don’t look so good myself. It’s fine.’



He bought her a bungalow near the sea in Florida and another former PoW helped him to build a railing so she could pull herself over the dunes to the water.



‘I thought, of course, we would live happily ever after,’ says Carol. But as a war hero, McCain was moving in ever-more elevated circles.



Through Ross Perot, he met Ronald Reagan, then Governor of California. A sympathetic Nancy Reagan took Carol under her wing.



But already the McCains’ marriage had begun to fray. ‘John started carousing and running around with women,’ said Robert Timberg.



McCain has acknowledged that he had girlfriends during this time, without going into details. Some friends blame his dissatisfaction with Carol, but others give some credence to her theory of a mid-life crisis.



He was also fiercely ambitious, but it was clear he would never become an admiral like his illustrious father and grandfather and his thoughts were turning to politics.

Now for something that should disgust you.





WARNING: EVEN THIS BRIEF EXCERPT HAS SOME OFFENSIVE TERMS. DISCRETION IS ADVISED.













Here is an excerpt of an article from AMERICABlog about the stuff that gets posted and left up at John McCain's OFFICIAL Website.



McCain's Web site talks about the anti-Christ being 'a Jew,' Hillary being a 'bitch,' Obama being a 'Muslim fag,' and America bringing 9/11 on itself



UPDATE: Jed finds more on other McCain sites, including a reference to Obama as a n*gger.



Some folks on the right thought they'd pull an "I gotcha" on Obama by trying to find kooky things visitors have written on Obama's blog. So, I thought I'd take a look at John McCain's campaign Web site and do a search for words like "fag," "bitch," and "Jew," for starters. What I found wasn't pretty. It's interesting to note that each comment has a "flag as offensive" button next to it, so that readers can inform the moderator that the comments are offensive. Either McCain's readers don't find any of this offensive, or McCain's staff was informed and didn't care.

I'm just saying!

The Anti Christ is supposed to be the one who will oppose Christ and try to take his place in biblical prophecies. They are also known as Christ deniers.



In other words, an anti christ is supposed to be the worst of the worst.

I've always understood the AntiChrist to be someone who was the opposite of Jesus. Someone who would trick people into following him/her with promises that they would be able to gain everything they want without "paying" for it so to speak. It's a "me" way of thinking.



Where as Jesus wants a person to achieve things that are good for them and the world and there are always hard things to get threw to get the things worthwhile.



So it's a Me vs. Us kinda thing.



did that make sense.

More good news from Congressman Henry Waxman:



Congressman Henry Waxman and his Committee on Oversight and Government Reform have released a proposed report on Jack Abramoff today.



Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Releases Proposed Abramoff Report



Chairman Waxman and Ranking Member Davis issued a proposed Committee report on White House contacts with Jack Abramoff that concludes that Mr. Abramoff had personal contact with President Bush, that high-level White House officials held Mr. Abramoff and his associates in high regard and solicited recommendations from them on policy matters, that Mr. Abramoff and his associates influenced some White House actions, and that Mr. Abramoff and his associates offered White House officials expensive tickets and meals.





Here is a PDF file of the proposed report.

Random,

If you really want to understand what these religious fanatics are talking about when they refer to the anti-christ, you should probably read the book of Revelations.

I haven't read it in quite a while, but it explains the end-times trope and the rapture and the 666 (mark of the devil) among other things. It is a rather interesting read.

Just a suggestion.

Cheers,

mfaye

He doesn't. People like to throw the term AntiChrist around and stick it on things they don't like or agree with. It's really a Christian scare tactic.

Old article resurfaces. That Jonathon Alter sure can get the stories, and this one ties in with Raine's Mrs. McCain story:



The phone rang and it was Ross Perot, who hasn't given an interview in years. Perot, who won 19 percent of the vote in the 1992 presidential election, making him one of the strongest third-party candidates in American history, got straight to the point.



"Remember what you wrote about John McCain in the March 13, 2000, NEWSWEEK?"



"Sure," I lied.



"When McCain called Perot 'nuttier than a fruitcake'?"



The Texas billionaire, now 77, still has some scores to settle from the Vietnam era, and his timing is exquisite. Just days before the South Carolina GOP primary, he wants me to know that McCain "is the classic opportunist--he's always reaching for attention and glory. Other POWs won't even sit at the same table with him."

The primary is over. At this point, it isn't a punch or anything. Elizabeth was a staunch supporter of HRC health platform. She is a VERY strong health care reform advocate. I think what we are seeing is the party and the factions coming together.

This just in: DIHYDROGEN MONOXIDE KILLS MILLIONS!



Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:





* Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.

* Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.

* Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.

* DHMO is a major component of acid rain.

* Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.

* Contributes to soil erosion.

* Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.

* Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.

* Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.

* Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.

* Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.

* Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.

* Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.

it looks more and more like it is her gall bladder. they seem to have ruled out the appendix and they are calling in her ob/gyn to see if she is a candidate for surgery...



They will be keeping her in overnite. She still insists she is going to work tomorrow morning.. but a friend took the keys to the office away.

*ush met with Jackamoff SIX times. Not the 2 that we were told....



Remember back in the day when *ush said he didn't recall the guy at all???

Raine, hope things work out for your sister again.



I will be out for a bit. I am going to go see Shoot the Messenger tonight in the City. Lizz's guest is Glenn Greenwald.



Talk to y'all when I get back. I just hope the city heat doesn't wear me out.

Ok watching TV in the background... DAvid gregory reporting on McCant;s response to the amazing Barck Obama speech today:

"He accuses me of running for Bush's 3rd term. Well, he's just running for Jimmy Carter's second!"

I'm pretty Sure Jimmy Carter ran for his own second term.

He didn't win...but...



Did McCain actually say that?

Comment by Raine on 06/09/2008 22:34:24
I thought I had MNRN on my facebook... I was wrong.



I would really love to know what pollaps on the gall bladder really mean. She has been admitted officially for the night, and they are wavering between the bladder gone all to hell, pollaps, and stones. She is under observation and surgery has not been ruled out, it seems. She is also doped up beyond all belief. She is asking about her friend's birds that she doesn't have...



I wish I could see my beloved sister right now.

yes. yes he did.



McCain is trying to compare Obama (with a massive movement of people who were born AFTER Jimmy Carter) to Jimmy Carter.

My generation!

The only reason we know Reagan wasn't the first president is because we know George Washington was the first.

Also, Jimmy Carter is easily one of the best Ex-Presidents in recent history.

That beside the point...Jimmy Carter wasn't a President of death and mayhem, like current Bush, he was just a lame duck who didn't do anything for four years...

Now...Which would i prefer to be compared too...

Raine,

First, I just wanna say that I am thinking of you and your sister and I am holding both of you (and the little one ) in the light (an old Quaker practice, basically it just means that I am sending good vibes your way). I sure do hope that everything works out



Back to the political scene, I have a photo on my blog of *ush with Abramoff captioned "Dubya doesn't know Jack?" - whadya think, eh?

I bet they went hottubbing together - Abramoff looks like a hottubber to me and I bet Dumbya would follow Jack anywhere... I'm just sayin'

Cheers,

That's good to know she asleep. Demerol and other Elvis drugs will do that! Hope all they need to do is some lythotripsy to get rid of the stones.

One does have to give him credit. His job was basically to do his best to make the White house look good. And with the huge pile that is was, he didn't do a bad job.

I know when you mock... I was agreeing with you.



OK, I gotta head out. I am stressed and tired. I am happy that sister seems like she will be ok, as well as the baby. My forst concern was for sister.

I have never read anything by Stephen King, and me a good New Englander, too!



(File along with being part Sicilian and not having seen as much as one minute of any Godfather movie.)

OIhh, that is sad.

Dan Abrams played a bunch of Press people doing the Fist Bump...and it was the most ackward thing you've ever seen.



ooofda. The fist bump belongs to the Obama's. I love the fist bump. I do.



Do not mock the bump. the Obama's own it. they are a team.




I don't think i am. I'm mocking the lame older white people trying to act cool by doing it.

Think back to that adult who tried to use slang to act cool with the kids, and how painful and ackward that was to watch. That is what it was like.
My apologies. I knew you what were talking about that, I should have made it clearer that the media should just sit back and not mock it.



I know when you mock... I was agreeing with you.



OK, I gotta head out. I am stressed and tired. I am happy that sister seems like she will be ok, as well as the baby. My forst concern was for sister.



ALL your good vibes and thoughts helped to make it better, I have faith in that. Thank you. I have to go light another candle for her.



G'nite all <------- X10







Night Raine.

Best of all luck...I'd say more except my brain gets tounged tied with this kind of thing.

Think of the prettiest nicest caring-est things, and that's what i'm trying to send it off to you.

Okay, that last part is just sad. The first Godfather is great.

But as far as Stephen King goes, reading the Stand wouldn't be too bad. But get the original version, not when he got an ego and released a longer unabridge one.

IT's not bad...but really disturbing stuff...REALLY disturbing.

Besides that, actually getting a collection of his short Stories, those are very good.

No, it doesn't annoy me. I just think your culturally deprived.

Comment by Random on 06/10/2008 02:14:32
Eh, Screw Culture.



Random wants to write stories not because he wants to make art...or culture.

But because he likes to tell stories, and entertain people.



That and he needs a venue to get the angry voices out of his head.

Tri, I am as equally proud of never seeing a single Rocky movie.

I got home about 15 minutes ago. Ah, the Long Island Railroad. I'm just grumpy because my back's been sore today.



Shoot the Messenger tonight was awesome. Another kick ass show from Lizz. There was a really hilarious bit about edible underwear as a Father's Day Gift.



And the interview with Glenn Greenwald was really good. I really got into the discussion especially because it dealt with the hackery of the mainstream media. And the discussion also focused on how they are more pissed when they get called for it. Especially when you look at the reactions to both the Colbert bit at the National Press Club and the reaction to Puffy's book when HE calls them out for not questioning what the administration said. And Lizz really has no love for Tweety and she can curse up a mean streak when she expresses herself.



I didn't see HBK there tonight. I guess she didn't go want to go out in this heat. OK, time to go catch up on Countdown. See y'all in a bit.
