    From Family PAC Federal Vice President Sandy Rios on Fox:

    “Is the White House out of their mind? Does the West Wing not know what the left wing is doing? We’re $14 trillion in debt and now we’re going to cover birth control, breast pumps, counseling for abuse? Are we going to do pedicures and manicures as well?”

    Fox News Compares Helping Battered Women To Getting a Manicure | Addicting Info

    Counseling for abused women = PEDICURE according to FOX.

    Some people think beating women is just a joke

    Isn't there funds from states to help with the battered women? Why would the federal government even get involved with this?

    I talked to a couple of people yesterday in the thread that joked about giving a woman two black eyes.

    VAWA, the Violence Against Women Act.

    Why? Because it's the right thing to do (I know, that's hard for callous conservatives to wrap their arms around).

    Go hug a tree asshat.
    Conservatives are concerned with family violence, of any type.
    There are plenty of state funded policies that deal with violence against women, such as DELTA.

    Wouldn't "the right thing to do" is put a Cadillac in every garage? Just another ultra liberal figuring out a way to spend more money that we don't have. You never fail, wry, Frisco has taught you well. :razz:

    Well I tell you what - that sonofabitch would have to go to sleep SOME time. And when he DID - bam! with a cast iron skillet. I'm not kidding. We've been married 41 years and I always tell my man that if you gonna hit me, make it good the first time, you won't get a second chance.

    Young women need to be taught from an early age that they don't NEED a man to be worthy in life. Women need to be empowered to fight back, to be strong. I read a book a while back entitled "Battered Women Who Kill" - about 11 women who finally had had all they wanted and shot and killed their abusive husbands. They all got away with it. Because - they had called the police and reported it and had obtained restraining orders. They killed in the heat of yet another beating. But - women need to be taught at a young age to get away from the FIRST sign of control, the first slap. I know, because that's what I did when i was 19. Best thing I ever did. Don't wait until you've had his baby, it's too late, well it's never too late, but much more difficult to get away, unless you shoot him and prove it's self-defense. Ever see the movie "Sleeping with the Enemy?" SHE made the mistake of giving her real name when she took the swimming lessons. Had a good outcome though, thank goodness.
