Fury At Racist Cartoon

Posted by Michelle Moquin on 22nd May 2016

Bookmark and Share

Good morning!

Lois: Wow, That’s dedication. Thank you. I’m happy that we’re back too! Even happier that you are supporting Hillary.

Marcie: Thank you. I’m amazed at the dedication. My first thought is, “Gee, how long would you have keep this up?” I missed being here too. I can’t believe it was a year and a half. It certainly didn’t feel that long.

Rebecca: Thank you.

Speaking of Trump, (and really how can we not?) once again, we experience the hypocrisy of the right claiming to be for women while encouraging body shaming and racial profiling. Some things never change.

Here’s the write:

Fury at racist cartoon comparing ‘butch’ and ‘masculine’ Michelle Obama to pageant-ready Melania Trump

  • The cartoon showed Michelle Obama and Donald Trump’s wife Melania 
  • Mrs Obama appeared muscular and had a bulge in the groin area 
  • Meanwhile Mrs Trump looked ready for a beauty pageant in a pink gown 
  • Artist Ben Garrison tweeted: ‘First Lady will be great again! #Trump2016′
  • Dozens of people condemned the drawing as ‘racist and misogynistic’

342D0E0B00000578-3590830-image-m-2_1463265048316

A cartoonist has been accused of racism after he portrayed Michelle Obama as masculine and butch next to a pageant-ready Melania Trump in a controversial drawing.

The cartoon – which has been branded ‘racist and misogynistic’ – shows a muscular Mrs Obama wearing a green dress with a bulge in the groin area.

Stood next to her is a feminine, smiling Melania Trump in a pink dress and holding a Trump sign.

The artist Ben Garrison tweeted the picture on Friday with the caption: ‘#InTrumpsAmerica The #FirstLady will be Great Again! #Trump2016.’ 

*****

So…what’s your take?

Thank you all for the warm welcome back. And…thanks for being here with me.

Blog me.

We’re Baacck!

Posted by Michelle Moquin on 21st May 2016

Good morning!!

Just in time to support the female candidate, and retort to the man quote ” It takes more than a set of ovaries to qualify for POTUS.” Interestingly we didn’t hear “It takes more than a set of tiny balls to qualify for POTUS” when 44 men were the only candidates because that qualification kept women out of the running. Did you really think I wouldn’t show up to cheer on Hillary? This time, Hillary, we’re going all the way!!

So who’s with me?

Let me make it easy.

Do this: Reach down in your pants and if you don’t have a set of balls you should be voting for Hillary. Easy. (Hell, even if you do have a set a balls, they aren’t big ones if you don’t vote for the girl.)

Now…as much as I’d like to think women will pull together, I don’t expect all the women to be voting for Hillary. Yes, we have women who were raised to believe that a man is the head of the house. Yes, he may have one…er…two heads…but that is no prerequisite for the office of POTUS.

As I see it, American men have had 44 chances to work their magic with the public, whether it be the young or the old, the undecided or the independent. It’s about time a woman got her chance to lead this country towards equality for all in both the social and economic arenas.

If she fails she will be in good company, since 44 other male presidents have failed to galvanize the people to rise up and take back their country from the greedy rich and the bought and paid for legislators who sell us out for a few dollars to keep the greedy bastards in power.

All I see in this pre-election hoopla is just another attempt by American males to convince the female voter to give another male a chance. Nope!! Not gonna happen!!! Not from me. Sorry Bernie, your sex has had all the chances they’re going to get to “Save the country.”

If I have any say, and I think I do :) I will be advocating to all females to rally behind Hillary. The brain pool of “men-only” in the office of POTUS has been an incredible failure.

It’s time for a woman. 

“We, the people, are sick and tired of this crap.” I love when I hear men say this. Hello!…you’re sick of it?! How do you think women feel?

Oh and by the way, the “crap” you’re tired of is from what MEN have done to this country, not women. Women make up only 17% of the House and Senate. All the presidents have been male. Yet, here is a statement that I have heard from men who feel they are presenting another “logical” reason this country should be led by another male.

Their logic escapes me. 

Men are going to constantly try to promote that the next man is going to be the savior who will “really” save us this time.

My point is, that it is men, who are blindly or deliberately leading this country down the toilet. Men have refused to allow women to add to the brain pool that ponders solutions to America’s problems, hence the ever presence of the suggestion by another man that this is the man with the solution to America’s problem. Or as we women have come to expect “Trust me I won’t _____ in your mouth.”

Sorry this woman doesn’t care to suck on your Bernie stick.

So, I ask again, and I’ll keep asking, “Who’s with me?”

It feels good to be back. So looking forward to hearing from all of you! ❤

Blog me.

Women’s Day

Posted by Michelle Moquin on 4th November 2014

Bookmark and Share

Good morning!

Although I am calling today’s election day “Women’s Day,” because it is OUR day to make a difference, men need to get out and vote too. The more Dems at the polls the better chance we Dems have at winning, and making these last two years of the Obama administration successful.

At this point there is not much more to say. The voting part is easy. All you have to do now is go vote. And, help those that need help to vote.

June/Jane: You wrote me back in January informing me that you were a very successful female politician. I misread your comment and responded to you as “Jane” when you actually commented as “June.” Then you responded to me again, but this time signing off as “Jane.” :) Most likely you were being polite and not correcting me…and…the name you gave you mentioned was an alias so it probably didn’t matter :)

Well…This song is dedicated to you and all the women politicians that are working on securing women’s rights and equality, and bettering our political system so that women have power and a strong voice. I could not do what you ladies do but I applaud you and respect you so much for putting yourselves out there and being mentors and role models for our girls in the coming generations. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your efforts, commitment and tenacity. And I support you wholeheartedly.

Let’s shake the tree and bring about change!

Waiting your time, dreaming of a better life
Waiting your time, you’re more than just a wife
You don’t want to do what your mother has done
She has done
This is your life, this new life has begun
It’s your day – a woman’s day
It’s your day – a woman’s day

Turning the tide, you are on the incoming wave
Turning the tide, you know you are nobody’s slave

Find your sisters and brothers
Who can hear all the truth in what you say
They can support you when you’re on your way
It’s your day – a woman’s day
It’s your day – a woman’s day

Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin’ the tree
Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin’ the tree
Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin’ the tree

There’s nothing to gain when there’s nothing to be lost
There’s nothing to gain if you stay behind and count the cost
Make the decision that you can be who you can be
You can be
Tasting the fruit come to the Liberty Tree
It’s your day – a woman’s day
It’s your day – a woman’s day

Changing your ways, changing those surrounding you
Changing your ways, more than any man can do
Open your heart, show him the anger and pain, so you heal
Maybe he’s looking for his womanly side, let him feel

You had to be so strong
And you do nothing wrong
Nothing wrong at all
We’re gonna to break it down
We have to shake it down
Shake it all around

Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin’ the tree
Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin’ the tree
Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin’ the tree

♥♥♥

Ladies: We don’t need to wait our time anymore and dream of a better life. It’s time to turn the tides in our favor. We are no one’s baby machine and nobody’s slave. There’s nothing to gain if we stay where we’ve been. Let’s make the decision, that we can change, inspire those around us, and be all we can be. Let’s taste the fruit of the Liberty and Equality tree, together. It’s OUR day – Women’s day.

Shakin’ the tree begins at the voting booth!

Howie: Thank you for encouraging my readers again to vote. I was also happy to see your comment in an effort to help Vivv and Adam

Al, Zen Lill: Thanks for your encouraging words to get out the vote too, sans the repub vote of course – they can hang out on the couch all day and think smugly thoughts.

Joan: Thanks. In my opinion, I am just being logical, and looking at the facts. If some women can’t see the war on women that the misogynistic repubs keep presenting to them, there is no HOPE for them, as unfortunately I don’t think anything I can say will matter. I wish it did! Let’s just HOPE that enough women support women at the polls that it won’t matter, and we can pull them along with us to a better place for ALL of us. That is my goal.

Social Butterfly:) Thanks to you too for cheering on to vote! Thanks for the tip on voting. In addition to that I want to add that if you are a vote by mail voter and you decide to vote at your polling place tomorrow instead, you must turn in your ballot AND its envelope to a poll worker. If you cannot turn in both ballot AND envelope, you must vote provisionally.

If you want to know who the California Democratic Party is endorsing for 2014, click here.

GO VOTE!! 

Thank you.

Blog me.

Peace out.

Dems: Let Do This Together

Posted by Michelle Moquin on 3rd November 2014


Bookmark and Share

Good morning!

 woman_power

For the past few days, I have been struggling with what to write for today, the day before election day. I have been perusing the net frantic for something that will inspire all of you to vote tomorrow. I usually write my blog the night before so that it is ready to post at 9:00 AM. But last night with my computer screen filled with various open windows, I went to bed earlier than usual, with nothing written.

I woke up this morning at 6:30 AM and surrendered to my thoughts and decided to just write what was on my mind.

I have always voted for as long as I was of legal age to vote. I have always voted Dem. However, I voted Dem because my parents did, not because I had any knowledge of what that really meant.

I wasn’t involved in politics. at. all. I never was interested in watching the news nor did I ever pick up a newspaper except to read the entertainment section. I knew very little about the president that I was voting for and even less about anyone in Congress. Hell, I didn’t even know what Congress was. I didn’t vote on policy because I had no idea what was happening, and frankly I really didn’t care. Politics was not interesting to me, and I felt that my vote and my voice didn’t matter much as it seemed to me, men had all of the power in politics.

Well…I was correct that men had all of the power, but what I didn’t realize is that it was because women gave it to them. However, I did learn that my voice did matter, and I saw proof of it. My way of getting involved in something bigger than myself was being a voice for those that didn’t have one. I got involved in the protection of animals and that was only because I had a good friend who introduced me to the horrors of how animals were treated in factory farms and animal testing. I realized that I could be a voice for animals and bring about change. And I did, very passionately.

When I started my blog in 2007 I had no idea what it was going to be all about. I just knew that I didn’t want it to be about one subject. So I named it “Michelle Moquin’s A Day In The Life Of…,” with a plan to blog about just that.

Because of the world wide web, I had more access to what was happening here and around the world. My eyes began to see and read things that I never would have seen and read. And as I began to blog, I could feel my world open up and my interests expand. As I researched my passions about certain things on the net, I was exposed to other things that interested me and inspired other blog writes.

It was then that politics started to peak my interest. The first reason being that you, my readers, I discovered were politically savvy. Most of my readers knew way more and were much more involved in politics than I was. You inspired me to dive in deeper, and better myself in the political arena

Secondly, I knew of the atrocities that happened to women but I began to be exposed to the plight of women on a grander scale around the world and it deeply disturbed me to my core. I began to see that how women were treated here and around the world, was directly connected to world politics.

The more involved I got the more I realized how little I knew. What I did come to learn very quickly was how I had put my future into the hands of others, and blindly trusted, because of my ignorance of the political environment.

I am a person who likes to be in control and here it was hitting me in the face, knowing that I had been giving up my power and control of my life, and my rights to others. And I could see that other women were giving up their power and control to others, as well. And those “others” were mostly men, who had no idea what was important to me and other women or what was in my and their best interest. It was a huge wake-up call.

Because of these reasons, a political animal was born. I found that I was watching the news 2-3 hours every night so that I could educate myself on the politics in our country and abroad, the political system in general, and be able to blog from an informed position.

I felt empowered in politics for the first time in my life, and I felt disenchanted by the political system.

Because of this dichotomy, and the fact that others felt as I did, I knew that in order to feel truly empowered, I needed to use my voice to inspire others so that we together could bring about change.

Barack Obama made it easy for me. From the moment I first heard him speak on the radio, I was so inspired by what he was saying, I had to pull my car over so that I could give him my undivided attention. I discovered what he valued and who he was as a person, so when he announced he would run for president, I knew that he was one man who would support women’s rights and issues if he was given the opportunity, and had a majority in Congress.

I do not believe in coincidences. I think things happen for a reason. And as I look back over the years, it is clear to me now why I started my blog.

Many people call my blog a “women’s blog.” And it is.

If there is one thing that I can leave in my legacy is that I HOPE I was able to be there for women and empower women.

Through my blog, I give women a platform so that you can voice your challenges and your successes and be heard

By showing women that even if we don’t share the same values, we can respect our differences and come together and support our sisters so that we all have the freedom to chose what we know is best for us and our bodies…by showing women that when we do come together we have the strength and power in numbers that can bring about change and empower all women.

the-thing-women-have-yet-to-learn-is-nobody-gives-you-power-you-just-take-it-4

And most importantly show our daughters and granddaughters by example, that women are valued. That our opinions and our intelligence do matter. And by coming together in support of each other for each other, we can get what we want.

That we do not have to get approval or permission from men to do what we know is right for us. That we are the controllers of our minds and bodies, our future, and anything else that affects our personal livelihood and well-being.

All we have to do is demand it and it is ours. We aren’t going to be handed our power – we have to take it. We women alone, together, are strong enough, powerful enough, wise enough, to make the decisions that are best for us that will change our lives and the future of our daughters and granddaughters.

Ladies: I HOPE today to give you the courage and strength to demand your equality by using your voices and the power of your vote. I wish with all my heart that you will open your hearts to all other women, seize this moment because it is OUR time, to come together for womankind and take what is rightfully ours, just by being born a woman, a human being.

Unlike what I thought a many years ago that my vote and voice didn’t matter, it does. Even more so today. Please do not be how I was for so many years, giving control of what mattered to me most over to men, trusting they would do the right thing, as if they knew what was best for me.

Men are a powerful part of the political system, and that cannot be avoided, yet. :) But we do have the choice to chose which men we want to partner with. I don’t need to go into what has been said over and over again, and what has been shown over and over again through their actions, just what the repub men think of women. We all know how truly sickening it is.

But the good news is, those days can be over because we women have the power to change it. I have faith and I trust that you will use that intelligent mind of yours and vote Dem with me tomorrow on election day. Do not worry, (Don’t buy the BS that if you vote Dem in Iowa your neighbors will know you didn’t vote repub.) NO ONE will know how you voted unless you tell them. It will be our little secret that we women came together at the polls to support each other.  That is why I am calling election day, ”Women’s Day,” because if we come together and support each other it will truly be a day we women will not forget.

This is it. It may be Obama’s final term, but it could be the beginning of something amazing and empowering for women, because if any male president will kick some ass for women, it will be our president Obama. I believe that if we women pull through for our president…if we vote and create an administration that gives him the power to do what we as women want, he will pull through and fight for us.

Let’s not give up our power like we have for so long. Let’s show up for each other. Our power comes when we take it…when we come together for each other and support our sisters. I’m doing all I can and counting on you all to do the same. Let’s do this together. Sending you so much love.

Wonderful Women Of The World

Good morning!

 Speaking of  ”tax on women…”

Sarah Silverman says it best - This is hilarious! You go girl.

 

Sarah Silverman Fronts a Drastic New Campaign for Wage Equality

She’s not going to stop at anything to make sure she gets equal pay. Which means that this video includes a prosthetic penis, just FYI.

Sarah Silverman helps launch the Equal Payback Project this morning with a video proving she’ll stop at nothing to make sure she’s paid the same as a man — and yes, that means gender reassignment. She’s picking herself out a nice “European” penis that goes nicely with her favorite boots, and then waving the floppy prosthetic peen around a bit, because what else is there to do with it? (Don’t worry though, this is just satire; Sarah still has all her ladyparts.)

“Every year the average woman loses around $11,000 to the wage gap,” Sarah explains in the video. “Over the course of her working life, that’s almost $500,000. That’s a $500,000 vagina tax.” So the Equal Payback Project is looking to crowdfund that amount — times every woman across the United States. That’s a fundraising total of $29,811,746,430,000, which the Project explains is ” a ludicrous goal, to be sure, but one highlighting the real* numbers.”

If the campaign reaches its multi-trillion dollar goal, every American woman (or “vagina owner,” if you’d prefer that on the “payable to” line) will be sent a check canceling out their vagina tax. Otherwise, the donations will be given to the National Women’s Law Center, a nonprofit focused on educating the public about the wage gap and advocating for equal pay. “The wage gap is stubborn, it’s persistent, and it’s outrageous,” the National Women’s Law Center’s co-president said. “We’re thrilled that Sarah Silverman is bringing her prodigious talents and brand of irreverent humor to bear on a very serious issue for women and their families. We hope she opens hearts and minds – and a few pocketbooks – to provide the resources to close the wage gap once and for all.”

Read more about the campaign at EqualPaybackProject.com.

*It’s a figure calculated by multiplying the nearly 69 million working women by the $435,049 a typical woman loses to the wage gap over the course of her career (assuming she works full-time, year-round for 40 years).

*****

Readers: The wage gap is no joke, but perhaps presented this way, people will listen and take it more seriously.

Hey, Mike, TM: Like everyone else, I too am looking forward to what you’re going to report.

Penny: Sorry you had trouble posting – that is the way it is sometimes. Thanks for your concern and for sticking around anyway, but no blog management problems at all.

Phillip: Ahh…you must be a Newbie – welcome! It seems that you haven’t been reading here long enough to know that I personally don’t censor or limit how many people can comment. As far as people “getting in,” it is the luck of the draw. No one gets priority over anyone else – that wouldn’t be fair now would it? As you can see Zen Lill had the same issue posting as you and Louis.

So no, it’s no unique way to increase my blog numbers. It is enough work blogging every day. I certainly don’t have time to be selective on who gets in and who doesn’t. You can thank those that oppose for any issue happening here.

Thanks for being here! I appreciate all of the readers who comment here in spite of how frustrating it may be sometime!

HaPPY SUNday EveryONE!
