Barry,

I was floored to read your comment about women and Romney! And even more so your comment about Jewish women not being able to vote!

This is a prime example of the profound impact that the slanted media has upon perceptions of reality these days. It is so dangerous that I am fearful of what will happen to our free press. When democratic principles included free press, they automatically assumed that the government would do the blocking. I don't think that anyone in their wildest dreams imagined that one day the press would be used to influence political opinion to the extent that they are now. Where one gets the news now determines what reality they are living in. It is horrifying.

Back to your comment, the facts are that, 1) Romney is no threat to women unless you read democrat fear-mongering tripe. I do not believe that anyone who knows anything about Romney or republicans thinks for a minute that women would be threatened in any way should he be President. And that includes Roe V Wade. Pure theatrics.

Second, to imply that Jewish women are in any way oppressed is again the result of media blowing out of proportion an internal country affair which has no far reaching implications. Jewish women in Israel would find that comment offensive and demeaning. I am assuming that this is what you are referring to.

If you are attempting tongue in cheek, it just doesn't work here for me, sorry.
