News Wives must be subordinate to their husbands

  1. Oct 17, 2004 #1
    Will USA go back to the Middle Ages when Bush (flop-flop) wins. Ain't that good news for all women (kat and daughters, Evo, ...)?

    "We have specific fears about what would happen in a second Bush term, particularly regarding the Supreme Court. The record so far gives us plenty of cause for worry.

    Thanks to Mr. Bush, Jay Bybee, the author of an infamous Justice Department memo justifying the use of torture as an interrogation technique, is now a federal appeals court judge.

    Another Bush selection, J. Leon Holmes, a federal judge in Arkansas, has written that wives must be subordinate to their husbands and compared abortion rights activists to Nazis."

    The difference between fear mongering and reality is getting clouded these days.

    Yes, you're right. Bush will inact a social revolution and women will just go with it because they have to!

    And how would this argument apply in the state of Utah ?

    (I'm not agreeing with the original post, but I don't think you have to drastically change things overnight to make something head in the wrong direction.)
