The Power of Bloggers

Yesterday's post had to do with a subject dear to my heart - how many (usually men) view women in positions of authority and power as being whores and bitches. This disgusts me on many levels, not the least of which is that most of those women had to work three and four times HARDER than any man, to attain the same level of authority.

Today, I am partially pleased.
The offensive card has been removed from the American Greetings "Blue Mountain" website.

Too little, too late, however. I will still boycott their products and have letters in the mail to their advertisers.

The only place you can hit a neocon and have it "hurt" is in the wallet.

    I want to remind you of something that I have been saying from the beginning my dear.

    Be they men or women. It's the big nuts that work their way to the top. I'm sure that if I personally knew any woman at or near the top of our political system that I would know an egotistical bitch.

    It's okay, I won't be sending any of them cards anyway. Or anyone else for that matter, the greeting card company's would have went broke a long time ago if there where only people like me.

    I've often wondered why women would do that, want to do what men do. Men don't do much of anything but a bunch of stupid shit.

    Maybe because it pays well, BBC?

    Maybe because if a WOMAN were in charge of most things in this world, we might not be seeing all this hunger, WAR, global environmental destruction?

    Nah, couldn't be that....

    American Greeting Cards and all their products are gone, nada, they don't exist in my world. They have shown their colors and there is no way I will contribute to them now.

    Those who wonder why women work so hard at achieving would probably prefer them to be whores who can be put down and demeaned.
