Chris Matthews and the Screaming Right Wing Social Agenda

I’m not sure what’s more surprising – that this debate was on Hardball or that there’s a Republican congresswoman in Washington state.

But as a postscript, I’m really tired of this whole “war on women” meme.  First, I’ve lived in places where being a woman really is an awful proposition (think Afghanistan).  Whining about no free birth control from the Catholic Church doesn’t cut it.  Second, I’m surprised the Dems are still flogging that dead horse – it’s pretty clear this is a religious liberty versus “free stuff” issue.  Finally, haven’t we all figured out by now that “wars on” just don’t work?  War on drugs?  A bust (no pun intended.)  War on poverty.  Phbbtt!  War on terrorism…  Iffy.

So even if Republicans wanted to have a war on women, it would pretty much be doomed to failure by the title alone.   As a woman, I’m not worried.

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
