A Need For True Gender Equality in America

Posted in Comentario by alvarezgalloso on noviembre 29, 2009

Venkatesan R. Itengar wrote an article for Merinews titled “Female Deadlier Than Male” on the 6th of August 2007. In the article, she discussed about the changing role in which power have slipped from men to women. While the author may have talked about India, the underwriter would like to talk about the shift of power from one sex to another in America.

It is true that women have been oppressed in the past by unequal laws which favoured men. The society that exists in the United States of America at one time even denied the right to vote for women. It was expected that men did all of the work while the women stayed at home. The evolution of women’s right in the United States of America is something that deserves to be praised.

The negative part of the rights of women has been the relegation of men to secondary roles and high expectations that men cannot comply with. There are certain women who watch soap operas, Hollywood Idols of the day, and Reality TV Shows. While people have accepted this as part of entertainment, these certain women have a tendency to compare their husbands with what is seen on TV and criticize the husband.

The laws that are written in the United States of America generally favour the woman over the man and are based on the expectations of the entertainment industry that has corrupted America.

The underwriter remembered a case of a homeless person who was once happily married and with children. He was very happy with his family yet his wife made unreasonable demands on him. She never forgave him for not being able to perform sex on the first night of their wedding. [It appears that there was a Hollywood Program that said if a “man does not perform sex on the first night, he either has another woman or is a homosexual”.

There is a program on TV by a psychologist who states “Women if you do not have sex, it does not matter if the man works, dump him”.

The same woman criticized the man for everything that happened in the world. He was accused of abandoning the wife and daughter when he went on a business trip or even a sports trip. The woman even told him to “keep quiet” in public and intervened in his personal mail, e mail, as well as telephone calls in case of “mistress” or “espionage”. The accusations were baseless.

She asked for sex more and more from his husband and when he was impotent criticized him even more. The result was that the woman and her husband became ill physically and mentally.

Finally, the woman went to her Physician and accused the husband of “psychological torture” and used all of the excuses that she had… In America, any accusation of psychological torture is reported to the authorities. The end result was that the man lost his family, his house, his income, and his freedom.

He was able to recover his freedom and reputation but ended homeless since no one would employ him. There were people who knew the man as a just one and his plight inspired many to reject compromise or even form websites such as http://nomarriage.com. [No Marriage.com is a website dedicated to talking about women in the USA although from the perspective of the person who wrote it.]

There were people who saw the plight of the man and started to reject a society that has become self cantered and which favoured women abuse of men. These same people converted to Islam or other religions and concepts which are not compatible with US Society. The man himself remains homeless and told the underwater: “The women in America want sex, no sex, you are dumped” and has refuse offers of other women and has alienated himself from humanity.

In a relationship, there should be a democracy with the man and woman respecting each others individuality and personalities. A couple should not make unreasonable demands and they should live by themselves without other family members. If possible, the couple should go out and enjoy life instead of watching TV Shows that have destroyed the families. They should love and cherish each other daily.

It is hoped that one day, America and Western Society could wake up and think about a true equality of the sexes.

Republicans and Democrats Kill Free Health Care [Libertarian Party]

Posted in Comentario, Partido Libertario/LP by alvarezgalloso on noviembre 24, 2009

November 23, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little tired of hearing Republicans act self-righteous about this health care bill. Of course it’s a terrible bill that will increase government and taxes and make our health care worse — but let’s take a short trip down memory lane.

In November 2003, almost all Republican senators voted to pass the “Prescription Drug and Medicare Improvement Act of 2003.” That was the horrible humongous Medicare expansion that ended up costing about $1.2 trillion. It was a huge federal intrusion into health care. Republican darlings like Kay Bailey Hutchison and James Inhofe were among those who voted for it.

Now Republicans are saying they oppose government expansion into health care. What a joke. A few years ago they thought it was the greatest thing in the world. Messages being sent out by the Republican National Committee are telling people that the current bill is bad because it will “cut Medicare”!

There’s only one party that really opposes government health care, and that’s the Libertarian Party. We’ve always been against it, and we’ll always be against it. But that doesn’t mean we want to force your health care into the hands of big insurance companies or big pharmaceutical companies, or subject it to the monopolizing effects of today’s licensing laws.

As our platform states, “We favor restoring and reviving a free market health care system. We recognize the freedom of individuals to determine the level of health insurance they want, the level of health care they want, the care providers they want, the medicines and treatments they will use and all other aspects of their medical care, including end-of-life decisions.”

Thanks to everyone who called your Congressman a few weeks ago. The bill still got passed by the House, but maybe it will be weakened or killed in the Senate. I certainly hope so.

Sincerely,

Wes Benedict
Executive Director
Libertarian National Committee

How To Apply The Free Market To The Government

Posted in Comentario by alvarezgalloso on noviembre 20, 2009

The Proposal”
             
When a company falls on difficult times, one of the things that seems to happen is they reduce their staff and workers. The remaining workers must find ways to continue to do a good job or risk that their job would be eliminated as well.

   Wall street, and the media normally congratulate the CEO for making this type of “tough decision”, and his board of directors gives him a big bonus.

Our government should not be immune from similar risks.

Therefore:    
I. Reduce the size of the House of Representatives from the current 435 members to 218 members.

II.    Reduce Senate members from 100 to 50 (one per State). Then, reduce their staff by 25%.

Immediate Tax Payer Savings attributed to:

$44,108,400 for elimination of base pay for congress. (267 members X $165,200 pay/member/ yr. Not counting their expenses.)

$97,175,000 for elimination of their staff. (estimate $1.3 Million in staff per each member of the House, and $3 Million in staff per each member of the Senate every year)

$240,294 for the reduction in remaining staff by 25%.

$7,500,000,000 reduction in pork barrel ear-marks each year. (those members whose jobs are gon e. Current estimates for total government pork earmarks are at $15 Billion/yr).

The remaining representatives would need to work smarter and improve efficiencies. It might even be in their best interests to work together for the good of our country!

We may also expect that smaller committees might lead to a more efficient resolution of issues as well. It might even be easier to keep track of what your representative is doing.
I.        Congress has more tools available to do their jobs than it had back in 1911 when the current number of representatives was established. (telephone, computers, internet, airline transportation, cell phones to name a few)

Note:
Congress did not hesitate to head home when it was a holiday, when the nation needed a real fix to the economic problems. Also, we have 3 senators that
have not been doing their jobs for the past 18+ months (on the Presidential campaign trail) and still they all have been accepting full pay. This evidence supports justification for a reduction in senators & members of congress. We obvioulsly don’t need them to be at work on the job!  

Summary of opportunity:

$ 44,108,400 reduction of congress members.

$282,100, 000 for elimination of the reduced house member staff.

$150,000,000 for elimination of reduced senate member staff.

$59,675,000 for 25% reduction of staff for remaining house members.

$37,500,000 for 25% reduction of staff for remaining senate members.

$7,500,000,000 reduction in pork added to bills by the reduction of congress members.

$8,073,383,400 per year, estimated total savings. (that’s 8-BILLION just to start!)

Big business does these types of cuts all the time.

If Congresspersons were required to serve 20, 25 or 30 years (like everyone else) in order to collect any retirement benefits, tax payers could save a bundle.

    As it is they all Now get full retirement after serving only ONE term.
