“How dare you tell me, a woman, how I should protect myself and my child!”

This was just a pretty good thing to watch – a female Citizen telling a male Senator to “stuff it”.

“You are a large man…“You are not a young mother who has a young child with her,” she said. “And I am passionate about this position because you cannot understand, you are not a woman stuck in her house, having to defend her children, not able to leave her child, not able to seek safety, on the phone with 911, and she cannot get the police there fast enough to protect her child, and she is not used to being in a fire fight.”

I really do wish that these chuckleheaded elected officials would start to understand that it really shouldn’t be up to them to decide what is appropriate for others “Oh, that should be good enough for you – YOU DON’T NEED THAT other thing that I don’t like”.  Nice to see her stick to her guns (yeah, intentional) in the discussion.

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
