Now going beyond the LAME and shallow-

Tunisia: a newly enacted law requires equal numbers of men and women to be listed as candidates in national const assembly elections.
-Weak, agreed. Big deal, more showing on the tickets.
-Female candidates did win one quarter of the seats in the Constituent Assembly however. Posative.

Libya: Legislation guaranteeing women at least 40 seats of the 200 Constituent Assembly .
-Women occupy TWO seats.
HMMMMMMMM. So much for that. Negative.(imagine that).

Egypt:Quotas for female reps mandated under Mubarek are abolished-only Nine (9) of the 498 newely elected legistlators, are woemn.
HMMMMMM. Negative number two.

Yemen: A female shares in the recving of the 2011 Nobel prize. One half step forward, HMMM two negs plus 1.5 postive--still on the minus side of the balance line weigh in.
A doc on cabinet positions introduced, includes NO pronouncements on inclusion for women. Mnis a half point, back down to negative two.

Bahran: A female poet, accused of being critical of the "king" was convicted of crimes against the state. She alleges that she was tortured and is banned from travel, when she is released from jail anyway.
Negative 3.

Why nice, light weight, brightly colored, cool apparel must be certainly be appreciated.

Quite a different format from Dreams. Quite a bit of Us history entertwined (that of which if anyone has ever had a course in US History, they would already be well aware of much of what is briefly incorporated as references- with out going into the depth of the actual historical reference)
Plenty of well known, political name dropping thus far.

The War on Old Folks
"While the Republican War on Women has gained national attention, there has been less outrage over the Republican War on Older Americans. But the battles are everywhere. State after state is going after pension funds. Here in Michigan, for example, one of the first things Republican Gov. Rick Snyder did was to impose new and higher taxes on retirement income and public pensions. Making matters worse, our state’s long recession forced many people in their 50s to take early retirement as employers downsized. When you retire early, your benefits are lower than if you wait until you’re 65. So now, a larger percentage of smaller retirement eggs will be subject to income tax. Why? To make up for cuts in the state’s business taxes."
http://www.inthesetimes.com/article/13351/the...
Let's all shed a tear for public pensioners who are forced to retire in their 50s with pensions that most private sector employees could only dream about when they retire at age 66 or later because of the economy, gas, cost of living, etc.

And the Real War on the Aging will begin when ObamaCare forces many elderly poor onto Medicaid, along with the latest deception by the Obama administration: Postponing the decimation of Medicare Advantage until after the election.

You are a liar. Obama held jobs. Jobs in the private sector.

I guess Boehner, McConnell, Cantor, all work for nothingwhile in Congress.

I guess Bush & Cheney worked for nothing in the White House.

The Romney campaign hasn't spelled out what kind of tax deductions it wants to close in order to pay for lower headline income tax rates, but perhaps something related to horses could do the trick:

As millions tune into the Olympics in prime time this summer, just before Mr. Romney will be reintroducing himself to the nation at the Republican convention, viewers are likely to see “up close and personal” segments on NBC about the Romneys and dressage, a sport of six-figure horses and $1,000 saddles. The Romneys declared a loss of $77,000 on their 2010 tax returns for the share in the care and feeding of Rafalca, which Mrs. Romney owns.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/moneybox/2012/06/1...

It’s a business expense.

Around 84 percent of the nation earns less than $77,000 per year.

Mitt Romney....The salt of the earth.

No doubt what Mitt does is relevant but so it is with Obama also and what he has done is to drag America to the bottom. I have never in my lifetime see anyone as inept as Obama and the America public so gullible. Obama is the devil incarnate!
