You are STILL avoiding the question I posed, and I have not avoided yours. Go back and check the posts. I have already stated that if the VAWA is redundent, then it is not necessary. This thread is not intended to debate tha VAWA.
The MAIN POINT of this thread was to make people aware of the sentiments/philosophical leanings of specific Bush appointees.
And I have clearly stated that I am appalled by tha appointment of someone who would state :
"the battered women's program gas outlived its useful beginnings"
"chldren without married parents should be last in line for Head Start"
"women should be subservient to men"
Did you get that ? Regardless of what the VAWA does or does not do, I am appalled by the sentiments expressed above.
I am appalled.
And you are STILL avoiding any comment on those sentiments.
While I can understand why, (what could you possibly say in defense of such sentiments), it is getting a bit tiring reminding you of your avoidance. Perhaps it is YOU who cannot handle the truth. (jeez, I hate cliches!)
You have chosen not to address the main point of this thread, and, as you may or may not know, I am pro-choice all around, and you may choose to continue not addressing the topic, but I am choosing not to continue responding to your avoidance of this thread's intention.
For others who do choose to respond appropriately, I will definitely check in and engage in what I hope will be meaningful dialogue.
Oh, and by the way all, GO RED SOX !!!!!
