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."

Yesterday PUMAs Were "Conservatives." Today, We Are "Left Wing Fringe." All Cuz We Happen to Believe the Constitution Protects EVERYONE Equally.
Remember yesterday when so many of us PUMAs were being dismissed as "Closet Republicans" or "Conservatives" or "Right-Wing Nutjobs" and "Racists?" Because we happened to think that our votes for Hillary Clinton *should* have mattered....
Well, those days are OVER my friends. Today we are "Left Wing Fringe." This time because we happened to disagree with The Holy One about how quickly our nation should move forward on GLBT rights. No kidding. That is all it took for the Obamedia to change it's tune about our "disloyal" tendencies.
Here's a little rundown of what I consider to be some of the best of the PUMA reports from/ on yesterday's rally in D.C. Keep in mind that I do not get news from the MSM, except through these filters. So... my opinion may be a bit jaded.
There are two days of excellent coverage, from Cynthia Yockey. Be sure to scroll back a few posts to catch them both! BTW, today, the "Newly Conservative Lesbian's" post is a FIRST HAND account and not to be missed. Many excellent video clips there!
Yesterday, Not Your Sweetie covered the schadenfreude over at the Sullivan and Avrosis blogs. Cry us a river, boiz. Wah-wah. And next time you decide to choose a candie date, do a little research into his/her voting (and marching) history.
Many PUMAs reported on the Nobel Peace Prize farce over the weekend. As did the Log Cabin Republicans. Who can blame them? I have a few more things to say about that, myself. Probably tomorrow.
For today tho... I want to recognize the millions of Americans that are being discriminated against because of who they love. I think they deserve our support.... even if some of them did lose our respect during the 2008 Democratic Primaries.
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.
