I think many old-school Democrats don't realize how far we've drifted toward the Old Left. Lots of things that my, and everyone else's, favorite Democrats were saying fifty years ago sound like right-wing sound bites today...and Ronald Reagan was said to have defined his "conservative" policies in terms of trying to get back to the original New Deal. Ask a respectable, hardworking old-school Democrat what s/he thinks on several different issues, and you'll get planks out of the current Republican platform. I find this to be independent of race.

They should only have listened to their inspiration, Germaine Greer, who wrote, "Feminists have scored an 'own goal'" in lobbying for abortion as a "right." Empowerment for women DOES start with the body part they're hiding behind. It contains and connects with muscles that can be used to prevent unwanted pregnancies (holding the legs together). Which makes it an odd choice of protective camouflage for women who want others to protect them from the consequences of having failed to use it. I may be insensitive, dogmatic, and confrontational, but I am female...and those who think I have a mean mouth should only have met my father.
