Wow! How forward of them, ALMOST like they're free. Will they have to wear their prescribed "tents"? I wonder...

ok.....Imagine June 25, 2012 the Saudi King Abdullah is doing the right thing for other humans in his Country, specifically WOMEN. No driving cars, banks accounts, no working permitted, and the complete outfits they must wear with all this heat? Most American women should read the whole story. In America, they work, they can drive a new car, they can tell you and the family I didn't cook tonight. They can be annoyed that you can't modernize the home just yet, due to financial problems. Oh thats right they can live in a Home, not a Hut or stoned built home, with no running water, no laundry facility, no hair dye, no nail salons, and most important of all no take out food chains. Be careful King Abdullah, they do not find out how American women live here in the United States.
