Ms. Fiorina points out that women are American’s majority and could pick the next President

Good for you Ms. Fiorina, one of many GOP Presidential candidates, when you brought up the fact that America’s majority are women. Yes indeed, a subject that many men don’t realize, is that this next election may be decided by women. Now that doesn’t mean that other women will actually vote for a woman, as we all know that many women in our society won’t support other women. It’s a known fact. But before Ms. Fiorina gets all the credit, she has to keep in mind that Hillary is the true candidate for women, since she already broke that glass ceiling in 2008, with 16 million votes. And yet she lost to Barrack Obama, by having more popular vote but not enough electoral votes to win. People would rather have a black man than have a female President, and not much has changed. If American women would only wake up and vote for a woman President, but will they?

But Ms. Fiorina, don’t think for a moment that GOP men and women will ever vote for a woman President, they aren’t that evolved yet. All of the people on that debate stage on Wed night are out of touch with women and it shows. The male dominated, mostly men tea party are mad as hell. Look at how angry it made the base when a black man, and a democrat won eight years ago. That’s why all the increased membership in white supremacy groups, and all the haters who will do anything to prevent another black man or any woman either GOP or not to win. The good ole boys club is alive and well. The tea baggers who are mostly old white dudes are alive and well. Look at all the love of the ever obnoxious Donald Trump? That clown show goes on, with his pompous, egotistical, women hating, Hispanic hating rhetoric. He’s making a joke out of our political process. We need to look at why so many American’s like him so much. Do we want a loose cannon to be our next President?

Come on GOP you can do better than that? Heck I’m a liberal democrat and can see the writing on the wall. We all must fight to get rid of the carnival act that has hijacked the GOP and get down to the real issues.

And if Ms. Fiorina thinks about it, she would know that those “majority” of women she talked about are women who favor Planned Parenthood. These women, who favor Hillary Clinton as our only hope for a female President. Women, can’t we just pull together and make history by electing a female for President and as many females for our Congress. Women only make up a mere 17 percent in Congress). Mind you that’s tragic, due to the fact that we are the majority in this country.

So while the GOP try to muddy the waters with trumped up issues like Planned Parenthood and woman’s health choices. With seven billion people in the world, how can anyone be for defunding Planned Parenthood? It’s a typical male dominated view that men should keep running this country and defining women’s health.

It ain’t gonna work anymore, dudes.

Women are here to stay and it’s about time men get used to it.

So when you go to vote in the upcoming Presidential primary, vote with your heart.

Could women do any worse?

Ann Coulter calls Obama the “R” word. Special Olympic’s star John Stephens call her out.

Special Olympic's athlete
I saw this article on facebook:
After Ann Coulter referred to President Obama as a “retard” in a tweet during Monday night’s presidential debate, Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens penned her this open letter:
Dear Ann Coulter, Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult? I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow. I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you. In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night. I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have. Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next. Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift. Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more. After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me. You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV. I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash. Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor. No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much. Come join us someday at Special Olympics. See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.

A friend you haven’t made yet,
John Franklin Stephens
Global Messenger Special Olympics Virginia

Way to go John, for calling out Ann, and showing her to be the “ist”  she is for using the “R” word. And you were good enough to invite her to a  Special Olympic event, showing your wonderful spirit, rising above it all and offering your hand.
