A pattern where a man hits, threatens, verbally assaults, intimidates, bullies, confines, pimps or otherwise controls a women by violence is that of a misogynist sadist, and should be considered under the law of justice just as any other violent  crime with special dispensation as a hate crime.

A man who participates by acknowledging said crime without rendering the perpetrator to justice; who promotes alleged crime by seeking to confine the victim to this role under subliminal or overt  threat of loss of Christian or other religious redemption is also guilty.

I’m no lawyer, but that’s what I think. Read what the New Agenda is saying HERE.

By the way, I would say the same for any abusive paring of this nature.

If you need immediate assistance, dial 911.

One PUMA’s thoughts about 2009

I do not have time to dally about whether the word “Feminist” is still correct. Suffice to say that I believe it is. That Governor Palin could call herself one, and Michelle Obama had trouble, shows the issue is not one of a leftist usurpation. Feminists right, left or in the middle, cannot cut off other feminists who support parallel position’s. Though I do not agree with Republican views of abortion, or their view of fiscal management or even their idea of care for the disadvantaged, I do find common ground on misogyny, and caucus fraud, election reform, and media bias.

Likewise, though I was outraged at NARAL’s actions, eventually upset with NOW, and disappointed by Steinem’s references to Palin, they are still democratic sisters. They made their best electoral choice. Most of their views are mine.

The problem, as I see it, is not our agreement; it’s how we got here, to this place, as PUMAs.  To move forward, we must focus; “keep our eyes on the prize”. Then, it’s the methods in how we move forward. (more…)

Wiki says:

“Senator Feinstein holds a number of “firsts”; she was the first female President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, San Francisco’s first female mayor, the first woman to serve in the Senate from California, one of two female Jewish senators (both of whom represent California), the first woman to serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the first woman to chair the Senate Rules Committee.”

While many of our eyes are focused on what’s happening with Kennedy, another event has unfolded. Dianne Feinstein is up to run the Senate Intelligence Committee! Out here in the land of the golden sunsets, we knew she was toying with a Governors run, and that would have been a pretty easy jaunt.

No doubt she has chosen the harder road. 

Feinstein gets nod to chair intelligence panel

Zachary Coile, Chronicle Washington Bureau

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

(12-16) 04:00 PST Washington –

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein has been tapped as the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Majority Leader Harry Reid said Monday, a post that would give her immense clout over U.S. intelligence agencies and the power to shape policies on wiretapping and the treatment of detainees.

Feinstein’s promotion was welcome news for other state Democrats, as well as Republicans who plan to run for governor in 2010. The 75-year-old senator has flirted with the idea of running for governor but has told friends and allies she would be unlikely to make a bid if she got the top post on the intelligence panel.

She deserves this appointment. She is exceedingly well equipped for the job.It’s going to put her right in the crosshairs, however, regarding FISA, and the Patriot Act. If you can’t remember how she voted on those particular items, check the Wiki linked to her name above.

Congratulations Dianne! Hope your ankle is healed.
