Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Insults Ms Kathleen Reardon

Nobody Wins:

NOTE: Dear Readers: I read an aritcle tonight and got mad. It happens. So I wrote a “letter” to the editor so to speak. It’s just another Nobody Personal Opinion. Sorry it’s so long, but I had a lot to say.

***************************

We found out important news last night: Liberal women are afraid of “binders.” Who knew? I didn’t until I read an article in The Huffington Post, written by ‘Professor” Kathleen Reardon. It was called, “What Mitt Romney Really Said About Women”

I thought it was so …dumb. This poor woman was insulted by Mitt Romney for using a “binder” to put women’s names in.

So, I decided to write her a letter. Feel free to forward it to her.

Dear MS Reardon,

You are upset about what you consider a “slight” to women from Mitt Romney last night, in your article today. You seem to think that, somehow, men like Mitt treat you and all women unfairly, and frankly, I’m not sure how you came to that conclusion.

Any woman that gets insulted by a “binder” seems to me to be a little on the paranoid side of life.

Are you paranoid? Daddy issues? Did someone put you in a ‘binder’ at some time in your life and torture you with your own insecurities? Too many Fellini movies?

I’m going to try to explain what Mitt REALLY said because obviously you missed it. And I will do this to you in Obama Speak, so you’ll understand:

When you drive to work in the morning…do you use a car? Thank a man. He invented that.

When you don’t have to go outside to go to the bathroom, but instead, you  have a nice cozy toilet where you can very conveniently flush all the mess away.

Thank a man…he did that for you.

When you sit in your apartment, and look out at the skyscrapers…do you enjoy the comforts, the beautiful lights for which you can study by, and the heating in your home while it’s snowing outside?

Thank a man. He did that for you. Wasn’t any woman. I know this is a shock, but I guess they just don’t teach facts in universities anymore.

Do you like to fly? Thank a man. Thank a LOT of men. 

You know, men have built the world, and made a lot of mistakes, but they have given us all a very comfortable life so far.

Being a “hick” from the middle of the country…unlike YOU Ms Reardon, I’m a working class girl. Nobody was a bigger feminist then I was back in the sixties when all this “women’s rights’ stuff was going around.  I decided to be a drummer in all- men rock bands. Not exactly a womanly career at the time. I played in over 40 bands here in the Midwest, raised my son, and always got the same pay as all the other men in the band. Every single ‘man’ musician I played with, respected me as a fellow musician. If you are good, a man will want to work with you. And you know why? Because men LIKE to win.

I suspect it’s like that in every other profession. I just don’t know where all this “unfairness” comes from.

You seem to think businessmen like Mitt Romany are cavemen. Have you noticed that this is NOT 1969 anymore? Millions of women are the owners of small businesses in this country. What planet are you on?

IF a woman gets paid less, there are now, reasons. Like the fact that women have children, so…they take time off….to have children. Companies have to go on. They have trouble catching up. It’s not fair, but many woman have to make a choice sometimes.

That’s not a man’s fault. That’s just nature.

They also, cannot compete for many men’s jobs. Especially physical jobs. Very few women could lift 100 pound bags all day…but if she could, she would get paid the same.

Here’s what you said about Mitt Romney:

YOU: How do you explain the term “patronizing” to a man like Romney, who is so fond of seeing himself as a businessman? And therein lies the problem. What kind of businessman are we talking about?

Nobody Says: He’s FOND of seeing himself as a businessman? What kind of oxymoron thing to say is that? What if I said your “fond” of seeing yourself as a professor?

YOU: Why wouldn’t a newly elected governor with business acumen realize that identifying even a handful of qualified women would have been far more impressive than having his aides assemble “binders” full of females? What is a binder of females? Is it the same as a slew of females? In any case, it’s insulting.

Nobody Says: Okay. Did you listen to what the man said? Evidently not. He said that when he looked around his cabinet he saw no women. A real patronizing man would have liked that, and did nothing. So he ASKED some women’s group to give him some resume’s and they gave him SO many women that he had a binder full. HE was surprised.

So, Ms. Reardon, you blame that on him. Oh…He had to put them all in a binder. What if he had put all these contacts in an Apple computer? Would you still be insulted? How about a folder? Why aren’t these women NOT getting their resume’s to the right people to get hired? The men have to do that. Is it because men won’t hire them, or is it because they have been told by liberals to not to even try?

He also said he hired the most women in 50 states to work for him. You my dear, are acting just like the other gaggle flock of feminist who don’t feel that they have to even pick up a phone. You expect to be ‘handed’ the job just because you’re a female.

Here’s another quote:

YOU: Then the Republican presidential candidate ended his response with a story about his female chief of staff who needed to be home by 5 p.m. every night. Who was she supposed to represent? Not many women I know. It was a story about a powerful man doing something for one unusual woman and then thinking it showed how fair he’d be as president to all women. Is that the judgment of a savvy businessman — a future president? What Romney didn’t do was provide a single sliver of a clue about what he’ll do to change the fact that women make in the area of 72 cents for every dollar made by men doing comparable work. About that core wallet issue, he said nothing.

Nobody Says: Mitt did that in regards to  her children. I guess liberal women feel…let that kid eat his TV dinner.  Did you miss that part that he let her adjust her hours? Oh…what a horrible man.

Ms Reardon: Most of the internet companies like Apple, and Face book, let their employees work their own hours…men AND woman. They make it a point.  But, it INSULTS you when Mitt Romney does the same thing.  I just don’t get it.

Also, if a woman is not making the same as a man, she can sue…or quit. It’s not like she has to keep working at that job. I once was sexually harassed on a job by my boss. I took him to court, but he had more money than me…he had six lawyers, and I had none. The judge threw it out..and said told me he was sorry.  You know what I did? I quit and got another job. This stuff happens all the time, it’s how you deal with it that makes you “equal.”

And then, you end with this:

YOU: This is an election, Mr. Romney, not a date. Women don’t want to feel special. They want to earn a living and feed their families

Nobody Says; Really? Women don’t want to feel special? Let’s get Dick Morris to do a survey on that.

The truth is there are 25 million women living in poverty under Obama right now, and  I bet every one of them would LOVE to feel special.

What I see, is a world of woman working, and men losing jobs.

And you end it with this:

YOU: What women and all voters want is respect. Women want equal pay for equal work. That’s respect. They want a fair shot at the top jobs. That’s respect. In the absence of that, the rest is all fluff.

If a woman wants ‘equality” then she needs to EARN that respect.  And if she wants a “fair” shot all she need do is take it. Have you not noticed, Hillary, Oprah, Condoleezza, Pelosi— they got a fair shot. Are you telling me, there are only a few woman around that happens too?

You want respect, I know. But what are you going to do about the women like me who can hardly give you a compliment, let alone respect. You are everything a hard-working proud American woman dislikes. Liberal women like you, think Obama is all for woman’s rights, and YET he claims Islam is a wonderful religion. Islam enslaves all it’s women. You couldn’t put the names of all the women Islam enslaves in a binder.

You took Mitt’s words and twisted them to fit your “war on women.” which the democrats have to invent to give Obama something to run on because he has done such a terrible job.

Respect needs to be earned, and baby, you’ve got a long way to go.

Wait…did I just call you baby? Now THAT’s insulting.

Sincerely,

Working Class (And Tonight Very Proud to be) an Insulting American Conservative Female— Hero.

  4. Oh boy (and girl).

    Both barrels. And a club as back-up.

    I can only speak on my behalf, as a chap, to say thank you for being in the fight. You have been right in it since before I even knew you; both of us soldiers in a huge army that mostly sits in the barracks polishing shoes and belt buckles. But some of us stand up, wave a sword around and occasionally give some stupid (tenured) feminist a sound whacking with the flat side. We are generally too ‘nice’ to use the sharp edge and cut them down.

    Now, whilst you have your dander up, where did I put my whetstone?
