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."

Tea Party Reports Pouring In: Cincinnati tops the chart in numbers so far.
All around the country, folks are protesting bank bailouts. THIS VIDEO gives a glimpse of the groundswells in places like St. Louis, Los Angeles and Chicago.
The one in my area is nicely covered by "Doses of Reality." Cincinnati's Tea Party drew an estimated 4000 to 6000 protesters. Not surprising, really, as we are quite the fiscally conservative area. For once I can say I am proud to live here in the Queen City. (We ain't losing jobs, either. In fact, firms throughout our tristate cannot find enough skilled workers.)
Big shout out to Philip at "Doses of Reality" for covering a story that many in the Obamedia would have liked to gloss over. Photos like yours are what holds their feet to the fire!
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.
