It is freaking heinous outside. We got up at 7AM to go out and mow, clip hedges and do a ton of weeding. We came in and our clothes were soaked, and worn to a nub. It’s now 99 degrees out there, and the humidity is godawful to boot.
Since I’ll be passed out for a while, check out Julien’s List on the abandonment of women’s rights in the prospective Iraqi constitution, which I also covered yesterday. Julien’s angry and justifiably so; I’m still boiling.
They won’t mention that Islamic law will not only NOT be democratic at all, it will strip all of the rights of women- rights that at least they did have prior to being “freed” by Georgie’s gang. Women will:
1. Not be allowed an education (even writing or reading in most cases)
2. Not be allowed to drive
3. Not be allowed to be seen anywhere outside their homes without the shroud of a burka
4. If a woman is raped, she will be the criminal, not the man who raped her
5. Under Islamic law, if a women is even accused of adultery, she is killed – usually by a father or brother or uncle, and this is okay – women are not allowed into a court to defend themselves
All of these rules are very familiar in Saudi Arabia – the country where the majority of the 9/11 terrorists came from (that is in the news, but the sheeple still refuse to believe that they didn’t come from Iraq)…the county whose leaders get to hold hands with Georgie and visit the ranch and get flown out to safety after 9/11 before anyone else was allowed to fly. (Yes, Georgie will hold hands with the leaders of the country that produced most of the 9/11 terrorists, but he won’t hug Cindy Sheehan…)
Go here for more.
What else is going on — anybody else frying out there?
