The ongoing Political Musings of a former (now Stray) Yellar Dawg Dem.
This is a Feminist Blog, in the tradition of Susan B. Anthony.
"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

By Now, You May Suspect That Stray Yellar Dawg Has Totally Jumped the Shark
Well, it's not true! S.Y.D. is just as pissed about what happened to women, and to Democrats in 2008 as she has ever been. Even if her blawg seems to be careening off course, into some kind of new agey lala land.
Don't worry! Strays always (well, usually) return. We have a good sense of smell. And we know who our friends are. Plus, we disdain the taste of kool-ade. No matter what the flavor.
And, besides, just because I am not throwing tantrums about Obama and his unique brand of sexism this week.... it doesn't mean I haven't been reading yours!
I'll just end by thanking all my PUMA friends for holding down the proverbial fort while I am taking a much needed break from politics. I promise... it won't be long until I get back to work... bashing the Obots and rallying the New Agenda!
In "real life" Dawg is a mom, a nurse, a pet rescuer and a tireless advocate for animal rights.
Dawg is happily married for thirty years and has raised three awesome children. She holds an advanced degree in Family Science, wherein her research was focused on women's support circles during parturition. Her dedication to Women's Rights is directly affected by her belief that motherhood should not be a sentence to isolation and disenfranchisement.
Dawg is on hiatus from political bloggery d/t the intense demands of her engagement in the No Kill movement at this time. However, she remains influenced by PUMA politics and reads the blogs of her fellow PUMAs (at right) regularly.
Thanks for the Visit, all you Stray Dogs and PUMAs!
"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
