When the U.S. space program was launched, women were tested for astronaut duty -- and passed.  But male astronauts candidates and NASA big-wigs objected, and the women's program was shut down.  So we literally put a man on the moon.  That giant step should have been for womankind too.

This is the time of year when "good guy" awards are given out like candy to corporations supposedly good for women and minorities.  Working Mother magazine just listed "Best Companies for Multicultural Women."  But behind the scenes these companies aren't so great for women.

On July 2, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act.

Meant to end race discrimination in employment, a ban on sex

There’s a new twist on forced arbitration that goes far beyond the workplace.  It literally affects everybody – because it’s aimed at people who buy food.  General Mills, maker of Cheerios and Chex, Bisquick and Betty Crocker, has added language to its website telling consumers that they give up their right to sue the company if they interact with it in any way.  Never mind if the cake mix contains ground glass or there’s a few mouse droppings in the cracker box.  According to corporate reasoning, you signed away your rights merely by buying the product.  Other companies are sure to follow.

The GOP has picked Obamacare as the so-called “hottest” election year issue.  They say it's a failure.  Trouble is, they have to tell lies to back up their claim. Prices are down, enrollments are up, and people think it's generally a good idea.  Come election day, we may see some liars turned out of office.
