Sex, Politics and A Gender War!

 

Writer’s note…I was originally going to link the ABC video display of the “Crush on Obama” video, but decided that I did not want to do anything to promote it.  I refuse. I have intentionally not linked the sexy politics link because I do not want to use this statement to make it easy for clicking there either.

 

First of all, I want to extend my apologies to Barack Obama.  Clearly the “crush on Obama” video is a degrading piece of garbage that further identifies America as not being worthy to call itself a civilized society.  We already have enough “sex” associated with politics, but to use it to promote and to link the idea that only R& B, bootie shaking starlet, wanna be’s is the way to get elected is over the top.  I do not know the totality of the whole video, nor do I know too much about the liberal movement behind sexypolitics.com, but I can assure you, I do not want to read it, I do not want to know too much about the approach to use sex as a lure.  Being informed is not sexy, people, it is smart.  What is pleasing to another person aesthetically is not always, “sexy”, actually for some the constant reference to sex is offensive!

I am ready to go away from the concept that “sex” sell.  It also kills, and distorts and destroys when it is not used appropriately.  I am embarrassed to consider myself as a Democrat, an open minded thinker when it comes to education, healthcare, economics, the government’s role, etc.   At this point I am praying that if Hillary Clinton does not get in as the Presidential candidate that a republican wins strictly because I do not know if we can handle a strong liberal front right now.  (Liberal thought is not always immoral pandering!)

Furthermore, this escapade, using a video to minimize, to attract, to defile, (what was the purpose, was it suppose to be funny, is it funny to see an overweight older gentleman hanging on a robust young woman?) the political process has made me more determined to see a woman in the White house.  It is time to stop using T&A to sell. 

I found it absolutely hilarious that the sexypolitics.com actually promotes a book on Feminism, is that a joke or what?  At what point did feminism align itself with reducing women to nothing more that T&A? Or is the newest form of feminism equated to the “sex in the city” thong wearing version?

Isn’t it plausible for Obama to be elected because of experience, intellect, demeanor, conviction, character, do we have to align him so deeply with pop-culture, as in “Obamania?”  Isn’t it enough that he is worldly, a Harvard Graduate?  Do we need to display to the rest of the world Is that really and truly the only version of America that there is? 

Can anyone else see this charade, found in using Hooter-style models to promote politics in the United States is demeaning, and potentially damaging to what we should be doing to encourage, promote and make equal women in this country?

I say one way to bring a positive focus on women is to elect a woman as presidential candidate.  Every father that has a daughter should be thinking about the future of their daughter.  Every mother that has a daughter should be promoting with a firm conviction and end to the use of women as mere sex objects? 

 

Stop the Madness!

See what your gas guzzling SUV’s, extensive square footage homes and excessive need for driving everywhere has netted for the fifth wealthiest petrochemical producing hoarder has done!  Then go fill up and say oh well, “so what’s another $4 a gallon anyway, it is all about me getting around!   By the way, when you can no longer afford to keep the lights on, remember – there is always a car that can’t be driven parked on the street for you and your family to sleep in. 

By the way, can someone tell me why in the world we think it is okay for a family of five or less to have a 5,000 square foot (or more) home?  Can someone tell me why it is necessary to build a monstrosity of a home for three people to live in (look at the newest suburban homes)?  Does anyone see how we have been manipulated into investing in the housing market, when did the debt to income ratio disappear? The person making $160,000 a year and buying homes in excess of $500,000 becomes everyone’s debt as recent history has shown us!  The auto industry encouraging after years of warnings regarding gas guzzling cars to buy “luxury” is a scam, who is the biggest investors into the production of SUV’s? Excessive consumer spending which has glorified into pop culture excessive spending which only has made a few on the top super rich? 

Does anyone understand that if we collectively gave up just one week of income, driving, spending, that we would shut down the powers that be to the point that we could literally bring areas of the economy to a screeching halt?  If small business men and women would all collectively support a job walk off, if corporations that are seriously going “green” would give up the “green” for a week that they would once again regain the control that is necessary to stop the billion dollar madness?  Take action, believe me neither, McCain, Clinton, or Obama can do anything if we do not demand it, and take control.  Let us learn from the Sons of Liberty and take action into our own hands collectively.  It was British control in 1776, now it is the Middle East that controls this, are we sadly becoming a colony of the Middle East, the East?  “Stop now what’s that sound everybody look what’s going down”…that song is a strong battle cry!

Oh, and to all of you who have the gas guzzlers, the oversized homes, the over-run credit cards…just because you make enough money to pay the bill, that does not give you the right to use more than your share!  It is called gluttony and greed!

What do Geraldine, a Madonna wanna be, a heiress, and a prostitute have in common?

Aside from them all being women?

What does a spoiled heiress a Madonna wanna be and a “broken home” little lady of ill repute have in common? Absolutely nothing! Yep, you got it, nothing, Except for the very thing that every woman has; the ability to sexually arouse a man. The very thing that identifies a human being as being a female is being certain biological attributes. Crudely put, T&A. Add in hormone producing organs, glands and there you have it. Please do me a favor, stop the madness. If you are over the age of 22, the age of the little, prostitute, then grow up and let it go. A inappropriately behave man sought pleasure in a woman that is the age of a girl he could have fathered. To me that is bordering on a form of pedophilia, it does makes me wonder. This little girl is going to be made rich off of paid for sex. The last I heard prostitution is a criminal act, immoral act, an act that is not looked upon in any culture as something to glorify. But as the new American way goes, do what you want today, grab the cash and tomorrow you will be held in high esteem. Whether it is a Miss America winner and her oral exploits on Penthouse, only to be elevated in a Very short time as a pop star, or a an intern to a president weeping on National television over her being victimized! WE glorify that which should be tarred and feathered and sent to a nunnery for future rehabilitation.

So now let’s really talk about women. When are we going to stand up and take what is rightfully ours? We sell out to the cheap imitation of woman-hood; we give over to 22 year olds what most of us have had to work our fingers to the bone for daily. We keep on selling out to men daily. Their lust, greed, weakness, only to weaken ourselves, we are the majority, but we act like the minority, we allow others to oppress us daily. The media is the biggest criminal in all of this. I have two more major issues to touch on to get the “soapblogging” bug out of my system.

“Former Democratic vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro stepped down on Wednesday from her finance position with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, a campaign spokesman said The decision came after Ferraro, the only woman to run on a major U.S. party’s presidential ticket, said Clinton’s rival, Barack Obama , would not be ahead in the Democratic presidential race if he was not black. Ferraro was a member of the campaign’s finance committee and raised funds for Clinton’s White House bid, the campaign spokesman said. (Reporting by Deborah Charles, editing by Lori Santos”)

Geraldine Ferraro made an inappropriate statement regarding Obama’s color, it is interesting and unfortunate. Ferraro was constantly referred to not as Senator Ferraro, or Democratic Candidate Ferraro, but segregated regularly as being a woman. Hillary Clinton is regularly being isolated as being a woman. If she were the front-runner (Senator Clinton) then the Obama camp would be weeping sad little losing tears over her being a leader because, she is a woman, and he is black and “yada, yada, yada!”

It is time, time indeed for us to stop segregated anyone based on their gender, age, ethnicity, etc. Can we honestly refer to Obama with a “race” label? Isn’t he as much Caucasian as he is African? We are all members of one race, we can interbreed, therefore we of different ethnicities, but not race. Can we please throw the race card away? I feel bad for Ferraro, I guess it is easier to perform criminal acts and get positive outcomes from the publicity then to make an ignorant comment. We must face the next 5 years of people backing down because we cannot be politically correct when we are facing a politically incorrect situation. We have candidates running, a woman and two men. Actually, we have three candidates. Who is the most qualified, the most in-tuned, the most willing to take on the next 5 years of our rapidly failing society? I am not sure, but when I know it I will reference them as President!

Geraldine, you might want to take lessons from the 3 femme fatales at the beginning of this blog, they know how to get out of all kinds of criminal offenses.

The next major issue dealing with women is the sad description of how to keep your man from cheating, by a self proclaimed dating guru was featured regarding the criticism of Spitzer’s wife not immediately dumping the dude. Now understand that part of the article was taken out of context, and does highlight what a man would do if his wife was caught with another man. (Can we please keep in mind that the Governor of New York spent on this prostitute what most New Yorkers make in a month!) http://www.Dontdatehimgirl.com suggests that a wife, please her man in the bedroom. Let him experiment, that men seek sex outside of marriage because they are not satisfied. Okay, she might be right, but how about respect? How about committing to a relationship and working through the inadequacies of each other? Women, it ain’t all about sex at home, it is about making the guy feel like he made the right choice! Security is the key, but that is another blog all together.

The truth is a man who pays $4,800! For a sexual encounter is an addict. There is little to nothing that can be done short of therapy. Let us also note the age of the little lady of ill-repute. I have daughters her age and if I knew that they were in a sexual relationship, paid or otherwise with a man of Spitzer’s age, I would hunt him down and let him know how borderline – pedophilic I thought he was. So, the truth of the matter is, what this all comes down to is further oppression and victimization of women against women, victimization of women by society, and victimization of women by men!

 

 

 

A Nation Divided?

Dividing the Nation” Well what did you expect?”

For the first time in history America has diversity in the running. The United States is indeed an immature society, one that still labels people based on hair color, size, ethnicity, gender, age. Most do not say “the person that I met with today is a good person.” But, rather it is more common to say “that man/woman, I met with today is a really smart blond, or a nice brunette.” You get the idea.

So then why when Americans have been limited to only white males with an average age of 55-60, does anyone expect anything less? My greater concern is not who would be the best person for the job, as they are all qualified to one degree or another, or they would not have gotten as far as they have! But the bigger concern is who will stabilize this country? It is sad that we would even have to question whether or not we are ready for a “diverse” leader. After all aren’t we still quibbling about John F. Kennedy having been Catholic? It amazes me that a country that claims to be a “God-fearing” nation gets hung up on where or how a person worships. It isn’t enough that they do and that they can make a solid commitment to something. (How many have changed based on constituency?)

So getting back to the issue at hand; Americans are divided, sadly so. Isn’t that a predicted outcome of a two party system? If there are two or more choices the odds are that there will be division. Now the bigger issue is that there is an extreme diversity at hand. I fear that should Senator Clinton be elected, we will be dealing with concerns such as, her husband, her shoes, her skirt, her hair, again falling back into the quasi-caveman attitude of so many Americans. I would love to believe that we have advanced beyond that. That there is some degree of sophistication at work to advance our society, but women have only had the vote for less than one hundred years!

Should Senator Obama become our leader then we will unfortunately get bogged down with color, religion, race, etc. I am sad that that is a reality as well. We should be far beyond this, but prejudice reigns supreme in these parts! Forget about his brains, his articulate delivery, or compassion. Again, we are still a Very segregated society on all sides.

Then there is McCain, this man will have to undo the damage of the past 8 years. Will he have the support of the nation behind him? The dark mark on him is that he is a veteran, I have even heard some refer to his age? When did that happen, that age became a concern in politics? Yes, every veteran should be carrying with them a badge of honor bestowed upon the shoulders of every soldier, again for believing in something and committing to it to the end. At least there is a definition of who he is, where he came from, and what he believes.

This country that has experienced abundance for over two centuries is now faced with many dilemmas. The issue of immaturity amongst other nations of the world is evident. The division is proof of that. The shrinking dollar, the inhumane way in which we deliver food, medicine and opportunity to those who are marginalized, the way in which we are rapidly trying to take care of the immigration situation. The list is long of those areas that need addressing and we will be like the old story of the tortoise and the hare. We are the hare, the young stallion amongst older, wiser nations. As America has been off and running, the giant amongst giants, its prideful nature just might wake up 5 years from now and ask “what have we done gone and done this time.” A great deal of time was wasted it on jargon that has no place in a country where we profess to be the “great mix” and all are free. What will the media use to make it interesting?

The tortoise will be those overseas who are currently reaping the benefit and reward by opening trade, wait, wasn’t there a time when we looked down upon supporting financially, communist countries? That is another blog all together. So instead of putting a feather in the cap of capitalism or a rabbit foot into the suit pocket of democracy, put a tortoise shell comb in your hair imported from, where?
