    Women's march

    So a bunch of women decide to embarrass their gender during a march. It's amazing that they are bitching..errr....marching for "women's rights" that they've had for 100 years. Also funny (not haha funny) that pro-life women's groups applications were denied...so I guess you're only a woman if you believe the same as the feminist pro-choicers or if you're a man who decides that he wants to be a woman? Women everywhere should be ashamed.

    I wonder how these liberal women would feel about a transgender woman who was pro-life...would be interesting to see if they'd decide that the guy wasn't actually a woman and didn't have the right to tell a woman what to do with her body.

    Women's rights first came on the table 100 years ago. There are still legitimate issues that should be addressed and discussed. The marches yesterday were not that, it was an anti-President Trump rally thinly veiled as a right for women's rights.

    It is odd, that feminist groups who are also pro-Life were denied participation, along with other groups that did not align 100% with an agenda that was not really about women's rights. Really odd that (at least in DC) one of the issues was DJT's statements on Islam (really radical Islamic terrorism) ... seeing one of the groups that was allowed to be included, is in favor of allowing Sharia courts to handle issues in those communities ... not really good for women's rights IMO.

    None of this is really a surprise, the numbers weren't a surprise at all ... at least in DC. What will be interesting to watch will be what happens next. Obviously large numbers of people felt motivated enough to go out there what do they do next? Next election is less than 2 years away, several Senate Democrats are up for reelection in that cycle.

    The marches yesterday were very interesting. However, it felt like football fans throwing a pep rally the day after their team lost the Super Bowl. Where was all the energy and organization BEFORE the election? These sorts of protests are great, but if you can only rally your support AFTER an election, you'll just not get very far. Maybe this will get more people interested in local and state elections instead of only showing up every four years. Remember that another census is on the horizon, if the Democrats (I'll assume most of the marchers support the D party) really want to get more power in this country, then they should focus on winning the small elections in the towns, cities, counties, and states so they can have more influence in shaping districts and thus shaping the federal government. If there's no follow through after this protest, then there'll be just more disappointment every November.

    Also, it was disappointing to see the protesters stoop to same level of vulgarity they seem to be protesting. A lot of it was clever, but still a bit crude and even vulgar. Lowering your standards to the same level of the person (at least to the level you say he is at) you're protesting isn't going to win over too many people looking in from the outside. And if you're only getting your message to the people living in the same bubble in which you're living, you're not going to get anywhere new.

    Be even weirder if the pro-life transgendered woman shot a gorilla with a handgun ... social media would explode.

    And that to me is why these were NOT about 'womens rights' what so ever... The fact they aligned with groups who are Pro Sharia law (and woman have NO real rights under Sharia), or supported Hillary.. again not someone i would call a pro-woman rights person....

    Shoot, they already showed that. A woman who was a conservative reporter was assaulted by a beta male who was part of the march, and the women cheered for the guy. Its not about their sex, its about their ideology.

    My threat assessment of Madonna's comments is based on one key word "BLOW". I would expect Madonna to be wearing knee pads and not a suicide vest/belt or using a VBIED (in this case the V stand for Vag&^a not Vehicle) if she decides to carry out a terror attack on the White House .

    Some where, a lot of husbands had a nice, peaceful afternoon as their wives were out ignoring their duties in the kitchen.
