Binders full of women – Fair pay for women, Mitt Romeys view, just not right

Hempstead,  New York – Things got hot and heavy last night in the second Presidential Debate at Hofstra University and Mitt Romney’s comment went viral on the internets.

But it seems only Romney’s comments got the attention but the ‘no answers’ from President Obama were overlooked. He never answered the question about why it took weeks before he said anything truthful about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Although Romney concentrated on Obama’s speech in the Rose Garden and not ask about why UN Representative Dr. Susan Rice made the rounds saying (best assessment) the attack was associated with a YouTube video.

ROMNEY: We took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. I went to a number of women’s groups and said, “Can you help us find folks?” and they brought us whole binders full of women.

I was proud of the fact that, after I staffed my cabinet and my senior staff, that the University of New York in Albany did a survey of all 50 states, and concluded that mine had more women in senior leadership positions than any other state in America.

Romney blew it last night, but President Obama didn’t do much better trying to dodge the real questions.

It was later suggested by people who were in Massachusetts at the time Romney said he wanted the binders, that the women’s groups approached Romney about getting women in positions of authority.

Very interesting fact, Fox News-TV did not mention anything about the “binders full of women” why not? But they did spin it well on their politics page.

Electronic Device Storage in NYC while people just try to live out the day in the Syrian crisis

Different parts of the world have different lifestyles and concerns. While citizens of Syria try to live out the day, students in New York City (NYC) try to find a spot to store their cell phones.

All electronic devices are banned from most NYC schools and students now have the task of finding a place to ‘store’ their devices.

 

Are these new rules to come to Canada and other cities around the world?

Did the schools miss this one as an opportunity to make a few bucks, just open a storage facility in the school.

The current operators for storage include mobile trucks that park outside schools and local Bodega who do the same for $1 a day.

Meanwhile, back in Syria, children run for their lives and nothing is further from their minds, than cell phone storage.

Politics: President Obama may ‘move on Syria and take a position on gun restrictions before election’

UPDATE: August 21/2012 – Does President Obama’s statement yesterday in the press conference, at the White House support my prediction?

Even the NY Times has suggested that he will move on Syria if leader Bashar al-Assad  uses chemical weapons (WMD) and tries to use them on his people. The only part they left out, will he do it before the election, if he needs it to win the Presidency.

August 12/2012 – In my opinion, President Barack Obama may take his head out of the sand and make the decision to move and help the people’s of Syria, before the election. His absence of help seems to be clear and yet he does not want to get involved, but it seems to me he is waiting for the right time, when he needs the support from voters.

We all realize that Russia and Libya are friendly, and that may be holding him back, but the election is far more important to him, to overlook the tragedies that are happening in Syria.

It’s a big move and the right one, someone has to help Syria, and who better than the United States of America. At this point in the election (less than three months) timing is everything.

On the issue of gun restrictions, there is no answer or comment from either the President or Mitt Romney and one of them must decide to do the right thing and condemn the automatic weapons, 100-bullet magazines, and take an honest stand on gun restrictions.

Who’s in charge, the Office of the President or the National Rifle Association (NRA?)

Every American has the right to bare arms, but not the type of automatic weapons that have killed so many in the last few months, I can’t think there is anyone who disagrees with that.

The Syria situation is a real embarrassment to the world, and why has no-one come forward to help the children, women and almost 100,000 people have been innocently killed in the last year.

United States is the last hope for the Syrian people, and Obama must help, and I suspect he will, just before the election because he must know he needs something big,  to get the voters clearly back on his side.

Just do the right thing.

And when is President Obama going to announce his vice-president running mate?

Breaking News: Homs, Syria, two journalists are dead and why is it considered the ‘worst war in the world?’

Homs, Syria – It’s terribly sad these journalists have died, and they knew what they were getting into. But the reports from these journalists indicating that this is the ‘worst war in the world’ seems to be unfounded.

Marie Colvin, 55, of the London’s, Sunday Times (owned by NewsCorpFox)  and correspondent for CNN, was killed along with war photographer Remi Ochlik, 28, today in Homs, Syria. Many in the World remember Colvin for her identifiable patch over her left eye, which she lost during a conflict in Sri Lanka in 2001. The details of exactly how they were killed, has not been disclosed, but it seems they were hit by shelling today, as nearly 100 people are killed every day in Homs.

But the Government of Syria suggest these killings have been initiated by terrorists and they are NOT responsible for any killings.

Do they not remember Darfur, Sudan? Estimates from the UN say that 70,000 were killed by the Sudanese government but many put that even 4-5 times higher. How many more innocent children must die before the world steps up and does something? Will the genocide continue?

The people of Darfur wanted nothing more than freedom, and the Sudanese government has been accused of genocide in the killing and displacement of millions. To date the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad’s regime has been accused of killing 4-5000 in the past year.

War is terrible no matter where it occurs, but sadly, the victims of war are truly the innocent, seeing a two-year old dying in the arms of their fathers, is the worst of the worst.

The world must step up and help these helpless people now. In Darfur and in Syria, and anywhere else it may occur. What is the reason that China and Russia denied to get involved in the Syrian conflict? Does it have anything to do with money?
