Or something like that.
But that road is still a hundred million miles long. Wage disparity and discrimination are still daily battles.
And sexual harassment.
Often enough, even though sexual harassment is considered social pariah territory, it still depends on who is being accused.
There is the rape blame game, and the sexual harassment limbo.
How low can they go?
Herman Cain, the most current frontrunner for the US GOP presidential nomination, has been exposed as a serial harasser. One allegation was exposed, Cain insisted it was not true. No one was paid any settlements, he said.
It has since gone from there, to more women coming forward, and the knowledge that lots of money was paid to settle out of court.
Two women have come forward, full names.
The GOP and other "conservatives" have been smearing and making lots of accusations.
But they are aiming their anger at the victims.

Ya. I know. But this still cracks me up.
This was filmed in Vancouver. I am just rambling to get this to post. The crazy ass webmistress has set this to 25 words.

This weeks newz is that Timmy's is trying to muscle in on the Starbucks clientele.
Of course using a word like clientele in a sentence with Timmy's is kinda mind blowing to start with.
Timmy's is that same place that uses the corporate tagline, Always fresh, that serves the baked elsewhere-flash frozen and shipped from some undisclosed factory-then convection microwaved baked goods, and coffee that has been going downhill for sometime.....You know the place? Stephen Harper even ditches the United Nations for Timmy's photo ops.
They are soon going to be offering fake lattes and cappuccino's starting at $2.
Now that just screams quality, don't it?

I have discovered something horrible this year.
My littlest gurlies, the ones who have lived with me in my Halloween themed house their whole lives, are suddenly petrified of many of the decorations that I love so much.
I tell ya. What a pair of wussies.
I brought out my talking skull, named Boris, and it was like a classic case of hysteria. Running screaming, hiding under the covers. Real fear. Not faked.
Boris, has a microphone, and when you talk into it he changes the pitch and his mouth moves.
They are even scared of Esther; she is a skeleton in a wedding dress that sings. This is made even more bizarre because she was never ever packed away in a box. She resides in my bedroom or on the couch, or a chair somewhere.
Much the same as the hand that is often left hanging out of drawers or peeking out from under the chesterfield.

The news is all alight with the question of the day..
But the thing that has made me go WTF? is this one.....Did Rob Ford, the dude who FEARS Marg Delahunty, (portrayed by Mary Walsh) swear at the 9/11 operator?
HUH? So the Globe and Mail publishes an anon statement, (yet another chickenshit) disputing another statement, and the gist is that what Ford did was perhaps not as bad, because he was simply abusive as opposed to dropping the FBomb?

Cops, athletes, soldiers, Cabinet Ministers....
I highly doubt the cabinet minister he was referring to will be doing that anytime soon......
Good on Mr Mercer.

Madame Flaherty hath spoken.
But, considering the track record, stock up on essentials. Hide any and all cash under yer mattress, and be prepared. This will not go well.
But, we already kinda knew that.

Oh boy howdy. Today on the great Orange Satan, Michael Moore posted a diary.
Then he discusses OWS, and lists the facts

This is the title of the hit piece: Occupy Calgary 'meeting' one of the funniest things I've witnessed in months
Condescending, insulting. And just downright yella' journalism. None of the issues are discussed, and she cherry picks exactly what she thinks will support her pre-position...Of the ilk of Alison Kosik, and that other moronic hack, Erin Burnett.
This one was brought to you by the Postmedia Network corporate office. (Formerly Canned West)

Because they already did that. Miserable failure.
So a few years ago, they figured out what an abhorrent waste of money (and lives) it was, and they started doing stuff like rehab and community intervention.
But Harper and his crew will stick to the script, because that is what the single issue voters that support them want.
And the ones who are going to make a nice chunk'o'change want it too.
Private prisons are highly profitable. Taxpayer dollars pay to put people in prison for mandatory sentences, these corporations are not doing it as a community service.

Well, we seem to be about the only blog that decorates for the Holidays, so why break with tradition?
In other housekeeping notes, we are going to finally upgrade this sad ol' thing to a newer version. Wheeee.
Why must life constantly interfere with blogging? I ask you?
There is a massive outcry in the US, against the very things that the Harper admin are implementing at this very moment.Submitted by pale on Thu, 10/06/2011 - 11:17.
Are the Canadian public really that dumb? It would appear that they are.
Recall a couple years back when Harper and his admin decided they were going to kill public funding of elections? And the outcry? And now they are doing it again?
But since almost 39% of the 60% of voters that bothered to get out there have sealed the fates for us...
What is the main message I see coming from the regular people of the US? The 99%?
Corporate money out of Government.
There are also a lot of people who think that the US election system has to be completely overhauled to take corporate money out of the equation. Make elections publicly funded.

It looks like the #OccupyWallStreet marches have experienced some violence from the police. Batons, pepper spray....The media team for OWS sent out a short film of themselves from the back of a paddy wagon. Bruised, beaten. But still clever.
I have been on pins and needles all day and found some diversions.
This youtube channel has had me cracking up.
It does sound like some of her speeches....
