I have devoted my life to the study of American history and are quite knowledgeable regarding how those in different political parties interacted with one another. We do know about the history of the American presidency. Forty seven American United States senators sent a letter to the leaders of Iran which is a first in our nation’s history. They warned the leaders of Iran that once Barack Obama left office, a Republican president might void any agreement their nation signs with the US and other major powers. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION THAT A GROUP OF OPPOSITION MEMBERS OF CONGRESS CHALLENGED THE PRESIDENT WHEN HE WAS ENGAGED IN DISCUSSIONS WITH FOREIGN POWERS! It has alway been an assumption that our president conducts foreign relations. When Republican President Richard Nixon opened diplomatic relations with Communist China there were those in this nation who felt he had no right to negotiate with “Godless Communists” but no member of the Democratic party sent letters to Communist Chinese leaders.
The most ironic aspect of this Republican behavior is they have been yelling for six years that President Obama is not really an American who understands American culture! The 47 US Senators are traitors to this nation. They lack any understanding of separation of powers in our government. This is among the most disgraceful acts in the history of the United States of America. No, Barack Obama was not born in Africa, but 47 US Senators were not born in this nation!
Well, it is that time of the year when we decide to devote an entire day focused upon the world of women and their struggle for being regarded on an equal basis with men. I believe we males should be proud that we are willing one day of the year to recognize that women in the workplace do encounter a few issues. A young woman who works in England described her encounters with those of the male sex. “The male friends I have at work are the same as me. They occasionally think being funny is more important than being nice. They’re neurotic, forceful when they think they’e right and not afraid to say ‘this is wrong, fix it’ and sometimes get things wrong. But, at the end of the day I’m still the bitch.” In other words, they will interact with women, joke with them, tease them, but it must always be clear that she is a woman and they are men. On International Women’s Day this professional woman had to make these comments but also made clear that she could not use her name. After all, her buddies at work want the world to know that some of their best friends are women.
Yes, we have come a long way, but, in reality we are closer to the starting line than to the end of this race for equality. The quest for equality is over when a person is a colleague, not a female colleague. One must alter minds to recognize that all at work are simply fellow workers and their sex is completely unimportant–AT WORK! Sex is for after work.
