>>>>>  One woman stopped a protest at a Planned Parenthood center:


Mary Numair took down Planned Parenthood protesters in quite an unusual, but awesome way.

According to BuzzFeed News, the 29-year-old Oregon copywriter and Planned Parenthood supporter noticed protesters outside a local clinic in Portland. After trying to approach them multiple times, she opted for a more creative route.

On Oct. 25, Numair arrived at the protest with a sign that read, "Dear P.P., Thanks for helping me with my yeast infections." In a tweet, she said she broke up the protest by chanting the words "yeast infections."

Wow! I bet there will be similar 'yeast infection' demonstrations across the country!

Falsehoods from GOP

Are you tired of the right wingers and their false claims? I am.While Republicans get their panties in knots over Hillary Clinton's emails, we should examine what the Bush family and their minions did.

*  Jeb! seems unable to fathom that his brother, former President George W. Bush, had multiple  warnings that Bin Laden was 'determined to attack' the United States. (See NYTimes, CNN, Slate, FindLaw, etc.) But they were ignored.

*  Jeb! and the Republicans are concerned about Hillary Clinton's emails but they ignore the private email server Karl Rove had and the emails erased. Jeb! seems to forget that he erased his own emails  (Politifact).

*  Carly Fiorina was not a job creator but a job destroyer. She cut 30,000 jobs at HP, spent too much money on corporate jets, and  delayed paying  employees from her last campaign,

I'll write more on the other Republican clowns a little later......

Are you ready for this?

You were wondering how a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate could hurt.


Mitch McConnell privately wants the White House to pay this price to enact a major budget deal: Significant changes to Social Security and Medicare in exchange for raising the debt ceiling and funding the government.

Several people familiar with the high-stakes fiscal negotiations said the Senate majority leader's staff is trying to drive a hard bargain in the private talks with the White House and Democratic leaders.

McConnell is seeking a reduction in cost-of-living adjustments to Social Security recipients and new restrictions on Medicare, including limiting benefits to the rich and raising the eligibility age, several sources said. In addition, the Kentucky Republican is eager to see new policy riders enacted, including reining in the Environmental Protection Agency's clean water regulations....

The Republicans continue their assault on working people. The Republicans never will stop - unless of course they are out of office.
