The World Would Be A Better Place If Hillary Clinton Was The President-elect

How sad that sexists fought against women's right to be president (, c.sexism.html). And sadder still is that they won-for now. Male domination (patriarchy) causes a lot of problems, but the worst is that it causes rape ( The horror of patriarchy continues because people did not vote for the candidate from the most oppressed group in the world.

The world would be a better place if Hillary Clinton was president because it would be a huge step forward against the patriarchy and for women and girls and also because Hillary Clinton was the best candidate, in my opinion, to repair the economy, ensure a strong national security and create compassionate social services. The great political lesson of this year is to support women candidates to end the horrors of patriarchy. I look forward to my next opportunity to vote for a woman! I know that it is right to vote to end male domination. As lightening rod feminist Alice Paul said:

"I never doubted that equal rights was the right direction. Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality."

What's the menu at your house? c8&feature=related

We are doing Rock Cornish Hens tonight, with Butternut Squash (maple syrup, brown sugar and butter...MMMMMM)

A small dish of some dressing, standard stuff, but with a bit of garlic for the hens.

For desert, some Blood Orange Gelato!

Then, tomorrow, is the traditional Ham and Scallop Potato thing, but I use Gruyere as the cheese.

I do a wicked BrownSugar/Rum/Fresh Ginger Glase for the Ham....

The usual rolls, some brussel sprouts.

Red Wine, and Champangne Memosias for desert!

If I am snowed it, why suffer?

Re: What's the menu at your house?

Not as snowy here, or as fancy.  Virginia (super-salty) ham, potatoes, cranberry sauce, miscellaneous veggies, and pecan pie for dessert.  And the appropriate libations, of course.

Re: What's the menu at your house?

I'm willing to concede that Christians have better religious music than we do, but we have the best holiday food. Every Chanukah when I make latkes, and every Passover when my husband makes matzoh ball soup, I just feel sorry for the poor dears.

So this is the centerpiece of our holiday dinner - latkes, sour cream, applesauce and honey mustard! (I confess the latter was added to the repertoire by my non-Jewish son-in-law, but it was a great addition.) The latkes go well with a nice crisp white wine and a big Greek salad.

Now I've made myself hungry. I wonder if there's any latke batter left?

Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy New Year - and a fabulous whatever for whatever else any one may celebrate!

Re: What's the menu at your house?

Our holiday food isn't terrible, but with the exception of bagels and kugel our general diet is craptacular.  Sorry, but whomever decided that gefilte was fit for man or beast had an, umm...unorthodox palate.

...okay, and matzoh-brei is pretty damn tasty, too. And egg creams.  But that's it.

...and matzoh ball soup, fine.  But seriously, that's all.

Re: What's the menu at your house?

Well, I'm a vegetarian, so I'd probably agree with you about gefilte fish. It sounds horrible anyway. On ordinary days, I eat pretty much what any other vegetarian eats. I love Thai and Indian food and a lot of other things, but for the holidays there's just nothing like latkes and matzoh ball soup (made with vegetable broth, of course) - not to mention challah and blintzes and matzoh brei and hamantaschen and Sephardi-style charoset. Oh, yum! Hungry again!

Now, Nancy, she is just a loony bird, but her biggest sin, and the one that assures of her of a non-stop barrage is her hubris...

She SO constantly got her ass-kicked here, we all sort of started to feel sorry for her.

She was getting gun-shy, it was a constant slaughter...Clearly, she was so embarressed, her intellect IS pretty limited for someone with such a big ego...
Dairy after diary, she got pounded to a pulp.

Rather then continue to take a beating and be shown for her razor thin lack of knowledge and almost unbelievable logical fallacies...
She is basically a cut and paste artist, I guess she is just a crappy writer, she can't generate her own content.

She came up with a fake tactic, a perfect out to save face.

She started this "Disclaimer-Until they change the rules" crap-ola, THAT is when she basically  volunteered to be on non-stop scorn list.

If She DOESN'T like the RULES, and won't interact (after all, that is the point of this site...It's not a bulletin board, it's an interactive blog)
then she should get the FUCK OUT OF HERE and stop with these pointless dumb-ass diatribes.

She couldn't dish it out, and she couldn't take it. She is a total wimp, a haughty candy ass,

and she pollutes this blog with her garbage and because she can't back up a word of it, she hides like the little coward she is.

She ought to have the guts to show up and admit, she has not the intellect or logical skills to debate us, but instead,
she hides behind this victim crap-ola.

But, she can't. She is outmatched, and she knows it.

And we know it as well.

To belabor the obvious

Preferring a different person as a presidential nominee is not a vote against a "woman's right to be president."

No one has a right to be president.

Voting for Obama is not a vote for rape.

Supporting a particular candidate who happens to be male does not equal support for patriarchy.

This argument has no logical or historical validity.  All it does is insult and alienate this audience, which I believe is deeply committed to the development of a post-patriarchal and more just society and is deeply opposed to sexual and other forms of violence.  

This diary is nothing less than a moral and logical travesty, a blatant slander and malicious calumny; it lacks sense, compassion, honor, decency, and even the faintest glimmer of ethics.

Strum - have you had your wife ask you to take out the garbage ever- instead of just dishing it out?  have you ever had her say its a " man's" job", ever?

Now, what you see in the diary is an opinion or wish from the other side.  

...this is another case of _ where you just absorb  and leave your need to psychoanalyze everything alone.

Recc'ed  to piss the others off and although I don't doubt your premise, I have to disagree- as Obama has been completely outstanding so far.  I think both of them would be great for democrats, I just thought as much I admire bill clinton that maybe it was the time to give a chance to believe in someone else. A chance, like I twice gave  bill when he was new on the scene.

Re: The World Would Be A Better Place If

I agree with you.  I think we would be better off if HRC were the PE.  I think we would be waaaaaay waaaay waaaaay better off if Al Gore had been the PE 8 years ago or if Kerry had won the election in 2004.  Unfortunately, 50% + 1 of the country disagreed with me in both cases.  You can't change it, so let it go.

George Bush has done such a substandard job that even those who agree with his ideology are tired of having him around.  The last eight years have been rough for our nation and much of the world because of him.  But that hasn't stopped me from educating myself further or tripling my income since he took office.  I expect to triple it again and be a multimillionaire by the time BHO leaves office.

It's rare in any nation that the best, smartest, most qualified, and well intentioned candidate winds up running it.  But don't sweat that.  No matter what Obama might do wrong or right you still have the freedom to speak, work, buy, sell, and live by your own guidance.  If nothing else, Obama's win sets you and I free--because we don't love the guy or have any emotional or monetary investment in him, we don't have to stick up for him either.

So, chill out, and enjoy yourself for the next several years.  If there's something worth fighting for on the way, fight for it.  But don't give up your happiness this early.

I have to admit I never understood the sexism outrage.  How could anyone be surprised by the existence of sexism in America?  It's not like we'd solved the problem and then the Primaries happened and sexism was pulled out of the vault where it had been keeping company with smallpox and anthrax and polio.  2008 was quite likely the least sexist year in United States history.  
Look, more campaigns lose than win, failure is just something we all have to come to terms with in politics as elsewhere.  If your concerns were truly related to the eternal struggle against oppression rather than lingering fealty, you'd be seeking our help rather than seeking our punishment.

I like how you just come right the fuck out and say it.  Other trolls pretend their diaries are about something else but you dispense with all that and give us the primaries every time.

Re: If Hillary Clinton Was The President-elect

In the spirit of Festivus, I will air my grievances - or at least my conjectures - as regards the outcome of the Election and how I think things would have turned out had Sen Clinton won:

Barack Obama would have remained in the Senate, where he could serve his home State, no doubt working to convict the Governor after his inevitable impeachment.

Bill Clinton would have avoided any disclosure of donors to his Global Initiative, and would have taken as big a place center stage as he dared.

The number of women in the Cabinet would have been just about the same.

Clinton would not have tapped into the experienced group of (Bill) Clinton's old crew, she would have had to start fresh and hence filled the Executive with neophytes (and only loyal ones at that).

She would get no honeymoon, and her approval numbers would start where they have been for years - under 50%.

Oh. Most importantly - Rick Warren would not give the invocation.

So you agree that failing to elect Sen. Clinton perpetuates rape?

incoherent and sad, if sincere

Honestly, is Nancy K a parody?

Re: incoherent and sad, if sincere

I wondered that myself.  If I was to create a ridiculous diary using the voice of a PUMA just for the sake of getting people riled... I would write a diary like this.

If ifs and buts were candy and nuts everyday would be Christmas.

Just trying to combine the general themes here.

Happy Holidays!
