    I never paid much mind to Margaret Thatcher and my knowledge of her is admittedly lackluster, but I love this quote..

    I think we have gone through a period when too many children and people have been given to understand "I have a problem, it is the Government's job to cope with it!" or "I have a problem, I will go and get a grant to cope with it!" "I am homeless, the Government must house me!" and so they are casting their problems on society and who is society? There is no such thing! There are individual men and women and there are families and no government can do anything except through people and people look to themselves first. It is our duty to look after ourselves and then also to help look after our neighbour and life is a reciprocal business and people have got the entitlements too much in mind without the obligations.
    Bravo! Well said is all I can say really.

    I do not think any one group should "rule" the world.

    However I am willing to bet The Council of indigenous International Grandmothers could make better decisions on most issues than the nations rulers.

    International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers

    Happy St Patricks Day everyone! (I am rarely around here anymore yet this is the best political forum on the web I have run across!)

    You think all of our pass presidents have "earned it"? The only thing they have earned is the silver spoon pass on to each new generation. It could not be any worse than the new low we have now.

    IF you have to 'put' someone in charge of something its probably a pretty good bet they aren't up to the task.

    "Only if they all have C cup breasts or larger"

    Not to mention a lack of the choice where Men and Woman have equal opportunities.

    It's still a men's world for sure. But doesn't mean it has to be either a woman's or a man's world.


    Now if you mean "should we let only Woman be in positions of power"

    I would say no.
    One learns more by listening than talking.

    Isn't it about time we throw in the towel? perhaps let somebody different have a try?

    Who better to "clean up the mess" men have made?

    Change? You want change?

    Put the ladies in charge.

    On every level of government. From the POTUS right down to the mail room janitor and every place in between.

    Fill every office, every cabinet position, and every seat in congress with females.

    Could they really do a worse job then the men have done?
    None of the above.
    I don't get where you come up with the idea that only men have lead us to this situation. Throughout history, yes, mean have had the reigns of power more often than women, but there have also been women along the way. Margret Thatcher was an outstanding leader, while Corazon Aquino was a totally worthless bitch (she was a socialist, so it was only to be expected). Here in the US, we have not had a woman as President, yet, but just being a woman doesn't necessarily make her a good choice. Elizabeth Dole might be a good choice, while Clinton is just another socialist commie loving ****. Look at the job Pelosi did as speaker, you really want her in the White House? What about Boxer or Feinstein?

    No, the bad has nothing do with the sex of the person in power. Elizabeth was apparently a good queen, as such things go, while there was Bloody Mary also.

    The bad comes from several things. The worst problem is socialism. The next worse is dictators (Ok, most of these in the last 100 years have also been associated with socialism, but I will keep the two separate for now). Unfettered Democracy doesn't work very well either as people learn they can vote themselves "entitlements". Democracy requires an educated, knowledgeable and interested voting public, without that, it will trend towards socialism and will fail. A Democratic Meritocracy, in my opinion, is the best way to go.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    But for Pelosi and Feinstein, I'd probably say yes.

    Cool. Vicious and "complimentary" all at once.

    So women can't rule unless men 'let' them...men have to place women in charge, women don't have any inherent authority to assume command...is what you're saying.
