Things That Made Me Mad This Week

Sometimes, there are just too many things to write about and just not enough time in the day!  If I had unlimited resources, I’d be writing more about these stories that really got my goat this week:

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia says women aren’t constitutionally protected from gender discrimination, but people of color are covered when it comes to racial discrimination.

All those people who’ve been having their homes foreclosed on?  It turns out that possibly thousands of those families may have lost their houses because of fraud on the part of the mortgage companies.

The Tea Party” and the GOP may be working together to keep certain voters from the polls in November.

It’s apparently okay for the Senate Majority Leader to call a fellow Senator Kirsten Gillibrand “hot,” as long as he also comments on how smart she is.

Insurance companies are doing their damnedest to get around the new health care reform law.  Their first attempt will keep about half a million sick children from getting the insurance their families thought they’d be getting.

Women still don’t have pay parity and, yet again, legislation to change that is languishing.

And, of course, the fact that those who support the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell let procedural games get in the way of doing the right thing.

Sheesh! Like I don’t have enough things to think about!

    I agree that this has been one long, headache-inducing week. There’s not enough ibuprofen in the world some days…. ugh.
