About Me

It does not matter where in the political spectrum one adheres. The same rules of right and wrong, good and evil applies to everyone. Our greatest danger of extinction comes from those that think the rules do not apply to them. www.timws.com

I think we can all name at least a few of them. They hide out of sight and out of mind for a while, till the rest of us relax, then they come out of the woodwork for a few days with one or more OP's full of their thinly disguised misandrist and even outright androphobia claptrap, daring anyone to disagree with them.

Most people on DU have learned to stay out of those threads, when they break out into the Home page, but they have a following.
You are correct, even though they call themselves Feminist, they are anything but. In fact they give the real Feminist a bad name.
They are actually bullies, bent on intimidating anyone and everyone not agreeing with their basic premise - That men are bad, evil, misogynist to the core. No, we're not. And for those men that are, those Pseudo-Feminists more than likely, had in a roll in making those men that way.
We are all people, both men and women, and most of us respond in kind to others. Be nice to us, we will more than likely, be nice to you in return. But the few women I am talking about are not nice, they intimidate, they attack, they insult, they put down right up front and then use the responses they provoke as proof of their premisses - Men are bad. Men are the cause of their {read women in general} problems. They do not see their own roll in turning people off in working for real equality and Equal Rights for everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, or anything else used to separate and classify us.

The only viable solution is to cover everything for everyone.

Prostate cancer for women - Covered. Pregnancy and ovarian cancer for men - Covered. Every medical condition is covered for everyone, regardless. NO MORE DENYING MEDICAL HELP because some bean counter, with a computer program tied to the bottom line, says someone is not covered because the are not rich enough! Who gets what medical procedures are medical decisions, not a business decision of a for profit, third party.

Single Payer, Universal Health Care, paid for by a tax on income, regardless of income, as long is it is some percentage above the poverty level. No caps, period. It makes no difference whether you make $10,000 a year or $100,000,000 or even more, everyone is covered the same. No more Cadillac plans for those that can afford them and denial of health care if you can't.

Too many can not put themselves in the shoes of others.

It never occurs to them that someone in a remote, dusty village 50 miles from nowhere, is no threat to the worlds only remaining super power. They only know what they are told. They seldom question even the highly questionable. How a "leader" we designate and a few supporters, being labeled as "terrorists" in a remote 3rd world location, is a threat to the worlds largest, very sophisticated military.
The OP is an good word picture of what it would be like to have the tables turned. To have us, just random people, as arbitrary targets of some other country, in the name of fighting terrorism.

Just who are the real terrorists anyway? A grandmother tending to her dead son's or daughter's kids? Or a corrupt government being run by profit seeking, war mongers?


Edited to add: I suspect this OP will sink like a rock because it strikes too close to home. DU has too many DLC, 3rd Way and other Right of Center denizens that go along with our "War on Terror". The really do believe the hype and think it is keeping our country safe.

That was the purpose of the DLC.

To drag the DNC far enough to the Right for the Republicans to comfortably switch parties. And that is what is now happening.
The DLC took over the Party leadership of the DNC, then dissolved their own DLC, as it was no longer needed.
But because they had a (D) by their name, that was A-OK with most people, because that meant they were Democrats. Never mind their politics are more main stream Republican than Democrat, they have that (D), so that makes then "Liberal" in the minds of too many. And compared to the current flock of Republicans, that is true in comparison. What is forgotten is that the the real political center is far to the Left of the current, apparent center, which is far to the Right of the Republicans of 40 years ago.

Yeah, that's just you.

The moral and ethics surrounding the NSA stink to high heaven. The NSA treats everyone as a potential enemy to justify their paranoia of treating everyone as if they are potential enemies. And around and around they go, feeding on themselves, generating ever more circular arguments, as to why they are even needed in the first place.
