Because freedom can't protect itself
Equal protection under the law is supposed to apply to women, too.
Re: " The Canaries in the Mine
Those good, law-abiding Americans who are being unlawfully surveilled, harassed, stalked are also canaries in the mine. Listen up. We're in trouble.
COINTELPRO? Red Squads? The new McCarthyism? Someone needs to do something. What happened to the rule of law in America?
Relieve this geberal of hi command
Victims of "organized/group" stalking are also canaries in the mines. Harassment, surveillance and defamation are hallmarks of OS, as are surreptitious home entries, thefts and vandalism. Some believe that it's COINTELPRO, while others have suggested Red Squads and, possible involvement by InfraGard. We need truth and reconciliation hearing(in the style of Frank Church. We need protection for whistle-blowers.
And what happens when a female soldier gets pregnant anyway. The whole thing is ridiculous, as it demonstrates the absurdity of placing men and women in close quarters in a combat situation. And before someone throws flames, how does any of this make sense from a readiness/fighting capacity? It doesn't. If a woman gets pregnant, she becomes an instant liability.
