Old fashioned stylish womanMiley is a commodity; always exposed to and exploited by – marketers, handlers and ambitious show-biz parents who “know people”.

Miley Cyrus: Miley Cyrus smokes “salvia” – latimes.com.

I ran into these folks (on a much SMALLER scale) when I worked in a Bridal/Prom gown shop. Saw firsthand the whole “little girl pageant” thing. We didn’t specialize in this, nor did we even stock for it, but they still came looking for some mighty skanky stuff…and left frustrated.

Some women are lifers. If  THEY didn’t “make it”, they try to have their daughters become this “thing”.

Meanwhile Dad defers or checks out, becoming an ‘arm ornament’ who pays the bill.

It’s mighty bloodless – when a life becomes a product.

This Is for You, Joy Behar! A Woman’s Journey from Liberal to Conservative

By idaflo | October 30th, 2010 | 2 Comments » 

Joy Beharby Jim Lakely  on October 28, 2010

Forgive the indulgence, but my wife sent me the following email today. She had to get this off her chest, in writing, to clear her mind for painting in her studio. And I think it’s a great story: One woman’s decades-long journey from indoctrinated liberal to free-thinking conservative.

These are the kind of women that Joy Behar insulted — and probably enraged, if my wife is any guide  — when she called Nevada Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle “a bitch” who should “go to hell.”

In the spirit of Robin of Berkeley, here is the rest of thisMUST POST and link-to article by Jim Lakely.

And my response follows:

Dear Mr. Lakely,  I believe Joy Behar is an extreme example, just another “hood ornament” for strident liberalism/feminism. Great stuff here, your family is blessed twofold; BOTH of you share a gift for writing. Sets off a storm of thought, since all the information on your wife’s evolution/transformation resonates with my experiences since college. Read More »

“When Feminism Kills — Abortion As ‘The Lesser Evil'” by Albert Mohler

By idaflo | July 5th, 2010 | No Comments » 

Antonia Senior – the evolved feminist = fascist dictator, bereft of humanity.

baby in uteroBy R. Albert Mohler, Jr.|Christian Post Guest Columnist

“If you are willing to die for a cause, you must be prepared to kill for it, too.” That statement, published for all the world to see, perfectly distills the inescapable logic of the abortion rights argument. It is based on a willingness to kill – and on the horrifying audacity to call this killing “the lesser evil.”….(continue reading here)
