» Cosgrove Needs to be Held Accountable from Thoughts of An Average Woman
He just does not understand why so many women were upset by his confusing bill, the term that he used, I might add. While the information of his vile bill spread throughout the nation, riding the waves of the internet, Cosgrove feels that it is neces... [Read More]

Well well well...why am I not surprised?
I just love the broad-brushstroke characterization of anyone using the net...socially inept, gullible weaklings who do what they are told.......NOT!!!

You are right, he does need to save face and defend himself but he must also remember he is being closely watched and folks have damn good memories these days.

thanks again...from a chick who "blindly accepts the rumors of the internet" LOL

All because of you, Maura. Teeheehee.
And the power of the electron, as a friend of mine says.

It's the job of legislators to whine. Don't take it personal.

Good job keeping your sense of humor. Sounds like you are going to need it. I would like to see more women become empowered by your story here Maura. Wouldn't it be great if just one woman in each state held her lawmakers accountable by keeping a blog on pending legislation? It could really empower women at the grassroots level to get involved. Congratulations, again. Stay the course, we're watching.

Remember watching Microsoft thrash around a little when Linux started seriously messing with their effort to monopolize server sales? (Yes, I'm a geek...) Everyone was amazed (yet again) at seeing a Goliath stagger under the assualt of a David.

And then Microsoft said, "Screw this, we're not dead yet," and funded the SCO lawsuits and a massive (mostly inaccurate) PR campaign against Open Source, calling it "bad for American business." It won't turn back the tide, but it may have slowed the Linux market for three or four quarters.

Cosgrove's speechifying will ring a few bells. I'd watch for some sort of attack against blogging to come creeping out of the right-wing woodwork. Perhaps a futile-but-expensive SLAPP lawsuit, coming soon to a theater near you.

I'd watch for some sort of attack against blogging to come creeping out of the right-wing woodwork.

I think you're right. This is already being spun as "right-wing legislator as victim of left-wing bloggers" in order to distract from the real issues at hand. Gee, maybe we're unpatriotic terrorists who should have our computer activities monitored.

Just a reminder. If you are in the Hampton Roads area, we have a new group of Women - called Progressive Women of Hampton Roads.
We will meet at Steve's steak house on Jefferson Ave in the Oyster Point section of Newport News.
This is our second meeting and I hope any women who are out there that want to attend and are progressive and want to put an end to the onslaught of the erosion of women's rights will attend.
If you need more info, please email me at [email protected]
