Washington — The organizers of the Women´s March on Washington have set the date for their general strike, dubbed "A Day Without A Woman," for March 8, which is International Women´s Day. The group previously announced their plan for a general strike but didn´t give the date until Tuesday. "In the spirit of women and their allies coming together for love and liberation, we offer ´A Day Without A Woman,´" the organizers said in an Instagram post. The organizers of that strike, Strike4Democracy, say on their website that the group will "coordinate over 100 strike actions across the United States, and beyond,

A day with screeching, unhinged liberal harridans and harpies protesting nothing for the sake of their vanity? Throw in effeminate Democrat men, all making themselves look incredibly foolish? Sounds like a plan.

How about a "Day without men"? Who then would clean up the mess in CA after that dam break? Who would build our new roads? Who would answer our calls when the electricity is out? Who would build our houses? Who would rescue millions from accidents? Come on. We need both sexes to get the job done.

Unattractive women who shun makeup and who take great pride in not cooking, not cleaning, not raising their children, not treating men as equals and not respecting our electoral system are going on strike? Will they spend day composing nasty messages about Melania, Ivanka and Ed Secretary Betsy DeVos while wearing their pink or rainbow pussy hats?

One thing is certain, these leftists will say nothing about the cruel treatment of women by Muslims.

I say organize "A Day Without Men" March on the same day. Men could use the same mantra that the women are using--- "Our army of love greatly outnumbers the army of fear, greed and hatred." And I´ll leave it up to you about the hat design.
Just imagine: Everyone could peacefully protest or counter protest everyone else. The streets would be filled with...men and women. The media wouldn´t know which way to turn. The "Day Without Men" Marchers could score more politically correct points by including a sub-category of "A Day Without Whatever Gender You Identify With." Those marchers could wear burkhas to signal their uncertain identity on MAR 8.
This is something we SHOULD do. But unfortunately, we can´t seem to organize and instead we´ll just sit back and whine and moan about the women and their strike. Sigh.

Many women scratch their heads and wonder who these women are. This writer does a pretty good job of describing them:

Sure, the barren spinsters protesting in the streets for a “woman’s right to choose” are pro-abortion, but they are the dull witted shock troops of the Cult of Modern Liberalism, organized around simple ideas in order to get them out in the streets making noise. The women who were running around dressed as vaginas last month had no idea why they were doing it. They just liked the drama and the attention.

The same with those moronic pink knit caps. The dreary women shown knitting them - for months! - and the dreary-looking women shown wearing them. Ack.

What happened to female pride? Most women I know wouldn’t be caught dead participating in such nonsense.

"A women´s strike."

Will the lights not come on when I flick the switch? Will heavy construction work on building sites be affected? Will garbage not be collected? Will there be no firefighters to respond to calls, no cops (at least those actually prepared to face miscreants) walking or patrolling beats?

All hard and important physical work that society requires will continue as though nothing happened.

In other words, we will receive a real-life tutorial on the issues underlying the "wage gap." Knock yourselves out, liberal ladies.

When I saw this on the news I turned to my husband and said, "That sounds like every man´s dream. You guys need a break." He laughed and said that he planned to wake up extra early that day to enjoy every minute of it. He has hope that the liberal nag hags that work in his office will "strike." It will be a blessed day if they do!

#10 - The hats are already available; I just don´t think the news would readily show a bunch of men wearing dick hats. At least not the kind out there. (Hint, it doesn´t sit on top of the wearer´s head...)

Then again, the sight of thousands of men wearing dick hats might drive home just how stupid the whole concept was that started this.

We could probably give NORAD and other watchful sentry systems the day off, though, because the Russians and Chinese would be laughing too hard at us to coordinate an attack...

City Councilman David Greenfield is asking the Manhattan Democratic Party to boot a City Council candidate running on his opposition to “greedy Jewish landlords” off the party rolls. Thomas Lopez-Pierre, who is challenging Councilman Mark Levine for a West Harlem seat, has drawn attention for a series of anti-Semitic comments and racial slurs.

Ethanol’s rise over the past decade has given birth to an under-the-radar market: Americans who are willing to travel miles out of their way and pay significantly more per gallon for ethanol-free fuel. Like locally sourced food or antibiotic-free chickens and eggs, so-called E0, or “pure gas,” has generated a cultlike following willing to pay a premium. More than 12,000 service stations across the U.S. and Canada now offer E0, according to pure-gas.org and other groups that track fuel trends.

The crime rate among migrants in Germany rose by more than 50 per cent last year, according to new figures that have raised concerns the populist far-Right may seize on the issue in the run-up to September’s elections. The number of suspected crimes by refugees, asylum-seekers and illegal immigrants rose to 174,438 in 2016 — an increase of 52.7 per cent, according to the interior ministry. (Snip) The highest crime rate was among migrants from the Balkans, Morocco, Algeria and the former Soviet Union, who have little chance of being granted asylum. The figures were an unwelcome headline for Mrs Merkel

For at least two generations, Willets Point been known as the “Iron Triangle”. A 48-acre site in Queens, in New York City, its small auto repair shops and stores selling used car parts have given thousands of new migrants a vital start in the job market. Now, despite New York City’s status as a so-called sanctuary city for undocumented migrants, the Central American workers who once pitched for business on the corners of Willets Point are disappearing. They fear that under the Trump administration’s hardline policy, they could be rounded up and deported.

Although President Donald J.

That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes.

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said
