    So violence against women will now be legal? A 1994 act is all that grants women equality before the law? Amazing! I thought it was just more feel-good, make-work Congressional campaign bunting.

    There was a time when Republicans would have been working hand in glove with the Democrats for legislation to protect women. Under our current cannibalistic congress, women, children, and all of the rest of us are merely negotiable pieces in the power games being played between parties, lobbyists, and special interest groups.
    Women are not protected from husbands who leave them and their children to financial hardship. They are criticized if they want to avoid having a child that was the result of rape, incest, or might kill the mother. They are underpaid by employers, and in some fields, domestic services for instance, they have little or no protections. They have health considerations unique to their physiology, but apparently not appreciated by too many males- even doctors. They are usually more at risk of spousal abuse and the news is full of stories of men who "walk through restraining orders’ to abuse or kill them. In some instances, men have shown up at girlfriends’/wives’ job sites and killed the woman and coworkers.
    If you’re not man enough to protect women from violence, you probably aren’t “man enough” to be a woman.
    If you don’t know what that means, you’re probably part of the problem.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Since traditional marriage is between a man and woman, maybe the GOP can push for traditional voting, which is between a man and his candidate.

    To Ima,

    Civil rights was initially a bipartisan issue with members of both parties voting on both sides of the issue. As the democratic party became more the party of civil rights, southern Democrats switched parties.

    I guess this cartoon refers to something already illegal with some “feel good” legislation that wants to make it more illegal.

    Southern Democrats. Not the same as Northern Democrats. And, as Johnson predicted, the Civil Rights act is how Democrats lost the South.

    This is a typical lazy left meme.

    During the 50’s 3 Southern Democrats changed political affiliation, none for objection to civil rights.

    During the 60’s 23 Southern Democrats switched party affiliation. The larger portion of those that switched were not at the national level and switched for various other reasons not related to civil rights. 3 national level politicians switched party affiliations during the 60’s, at the height of the civil rights movement of the last century, stating the reason as objecting to the support of civil rights by the Democrats. Hardly a significant number, more of an anomaly.

    Your mindless adherence and repeating of this type of party line crap just shows you as someone too lazy to do even basic investigation and analysis. Now that you have been shown to be a party tool, maybe you will question some of the other “common knowledge” your party and the other useful idiots spout.

    It’s a disgrace what the GOP is doing! 2014 can’t come fast enough! Vote them all out and give President Obama two years to get things right without having to fight every step of the way…

    The GOP is just that clueless; either that or they’re punishing women for not voting for them.

    Really, Ima, you might try reading the inside of a history book instead of looking at the pictures.

    Lazy, right lie is what you’ve got. We aren’t just talking about individual politicians, we are also talking about millions of southern voters.

    During a shameful period, most the southern Democrats backed Jim Crow laws & segregation. Republicans had a hard time winning elections because southern whites faithfully supported Democrats. Once Democrats became associated with Civil Rights, the Republicans saw an opportunity to pick up votes. The key period was the late 60’s through early 80s, not the Civil Rights era.

    Now, the GOP is having it’s policy of championing the interests of white men above all others blow up in it’s face.
