  • The Kotex Lobby: Feminist, Liberal Media Demand ‘Free Tampons’ For All

    08/13/2014 7:20:28 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 101 replies
    It’s the terminus point of modern feminism: make the deeply personal very publicly political, and get someone else to pay for it! If one man is keeping you in the style to which you’re accustomed, you’re a kept woman – perhaps even [shudder] a stay-at-home mom. But if your sugar is funneled from thousands of hapless tax payers through a legion of faceless bureaucrats, you’re a tower of feminist self-determination. Fight the power, sisters! Demand government tampons! “This is less an issue of costliness than it is of principle,” she later admitted, because “menstrual care is health care.” To back...

    As the Texas state Senate gears up to debate the late-term abortion ban and cast its first vote on it since a pro-abortion mob took over the state Senate weeks ago, abortion activists have devised a new way to disrupt democracy. They plan to throw tampons and pads at pro-life legislators — and they have already been warned by state troopers who protect the state capitol that throwing objects at legislators is not allowed. This comes after abortion activists threatened to display their lady parts today.

    Debate strategy for mayoral rivals: Go after Rahm EmanuelBy Fran Spielman and Abdon M. Pallasch Staff Reporters Jan 15, 2011 02:36AM The race to replace Mayor Daley entered a new phase on Friday. You might call it, “Gang up on Rahm.” **SNIP** They hammered him on his stint as a member of home mortgage giant Freddie Mac, which critics blame in part for the foreclosure crisis.

Given the opportunity to question her opponents directly, Braun jumped on Emanuel for...

    ABU GHRAIB, Iraq — On the eve of the first court-martial in the Iraq prisoner abuse scandal, relatives of those still held at Abu Ghraib prison said Tuesday the only suitable punishment would be death -- illustrating the potential gap in expectations in the case. "If they actually committed such offenses, they should be executed," said Odai Ibrahim, 55, as he waited in a line with hundreds of other Iraqis to visit relatives at the prison on the western outskirts of Baghdad -- notorious as the site of executions and torture during Saddam Hussein's regime.
