Here's a legal poser for you folks,
should they be arrested or not..

Tally will be interested in this..

I think - harmless enough but,
they waste valuable police time

Good morning El and all who come to the kitchen. I am headed to Vegas tomorrow for a little fun and relaxation. El they have started enrollment for Obama care and it is a total failure. After 3 years and over 500 million dollars spent the on line enrollment doesn't work. Obama said th cost of insurance would drop about $2500. In 45 states the cost of insurance has gone up and more than doubled in many states. What does the government do well? NOTHING! The employer must pay for insurance or pay a fine for people who work 30 hours or more. Full time workers have been laid off and hired as part time workers. Even the unions have said the 40 hour work week has been destroyed. Those workers with good insurance will be taxed on their premium insurance.

<quoted text>very general, yeah
here was your quote
"Billion women facing similar opposition as she is."
no way
billions of people facing all kinds of oppression, but similar to hers, not even close
There are over 1.6 billion muslims in the world, which makes 800 million women ... tell me a predominantly muslim country where women are NOT treated as the women in Pakistan? Add to that several other countries in Africa, which ar enot muslim but still have "male dominance" in their societal structure. Add to that the populaotin of INDIA, 1.3 billion ... and the male dominance of that country .. perhaps not as severe as Muslim attitudes but I know people who grew up there and women are definitely held back in the same manner most women of the world were held back even in Christian countries 150 years ago.

Perhaps most of them are not being shot at to stop them from going to school, but they are oppressed....

Thanks Franko.
It was't so much the slur, God knows I have had worst than that
to contend with during my lifetime....it was the source which
I found upsetting at that particular time. It was the least
of my worries that particular week...like a said a combination
of events.
Personally...I would rather be 'up front' and ask outright.
That aside, great to see you again...:)
I agree, it can be shocking when the source is considered .. I remember a few years ago while I was having a dispute with one memebr, and I was friends with another .. yet something they heard about me from the questionable source turned the friend against me ... and no amount of me trying to convince them that it was untrue cold change their mind ... what it did, in that case for me, is reveal the friend's" true charter.

HOwever, another thing I have seen in this forum is where a fake person rpetened to be someone else, and made several posts "out of character" .. and that also managed to turn friends into enemies ....

Franko....can we really compare oppression of women by enforcing
the Burka etc., to gang rape on a bus in India?
The former is a form of protection, however misguided, the latter
sheer abuse.
Speaking of oppression....there was none worse than in England when
Catholicism was kicked out of the doo in favour of Protest...ants.
All on a King's whim.
granted the cases are extreme examples .... most cases are not so extreme nore as publicized... but it speaks to the general attitude of those societies .... as the example I gave, that wonen in a muslim country are not allowed to drive a car. Even in an emergency, they must find a man to drive them. In many rape cases, the women are blamed because "they must have done something to tempt the man" ...

When that young woman was shot for going to a university, it showed the desparation men on those societies have to keep women from trying to attain equality with men.

the key to any system being successful is that most of the people are on board with the concept. It won't work well, and will probably fail, as long as more peel are against it than for it. And of course, when peole abuse the loopholes.

the term you used was "similar opposition"

inflammatory to say the least, imo

you want numbers? sure I'll do some work for ya

50 million in the Americas and Europe, not many just looking for a place to start that you might agree that the oppression is not quite similar.

Uzbekistan 27 million
Turkey 75 million
Egypt 80 million
China 23 miliion

how about Kuwait, do you think the women there are oppressed

so tell me then, what do YOU think like is like for women in Iran, iraq, Saud Arabia, Pakistan or any one of dozens of other muslim countries?

Have you read the stories about how a woman who was raped was sentenced to be stoned to death? It has been in the news several times in my lifetime and that was only the news that got published in western news ... the news about one protesting not being able to drive in Saudi Arabia was just in the last couple of weeks but I heard other stories over the years about these women being punished for driving.

Do you not count such actions as oppressive?
