Regular FOX News guest gives sermon about how America’s greatest mistake was giving women the right to vote.

Occupy helps to save another house from foreclosure. Still winning!

93 year old woman sues PA over their new Jim Crow voting laws. This, of course, disproportionally affects the poor, minorities and the disenfranchised the most.

The GOP’s Violence Against Women Act is being called an all out gender attack as it excludes LGBT, Native American and immigrant women.

Sen. Feingold mentions during an interview that Justice Kennedy is probably embarrassed about the SCOTUS ruling on Citizens United. If I was involved in allowing the the all but legalization of corruption in politics, I’d be hanging my head in shame, too.
