Democrats are going all in on the War on Women campaign theme once again, focused this time not on free contraception but on the claim that women make only 77% percent of what men make for comparable work.

It is the centerpiece of the 2014 electoral campaign.

Bumper Sticker - Walpole MA - Ben Franklin

Might apply to more than one of these bumper stickers.

From Deb:

I took this pic in a parking lot in Walpole MA.

The irony in the inclusion of the Ben Franklin quote leaves me speechless.  This is someone completely unclear on the concept of freedom and security!

Bumper Sticker - Walpole MA - Ben Franklin quote

The actual quote is: “They who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

But that wouldn’t exactly fit on a bumper sticker.

Opposing the anti-Israel Boycott Divest and Sanction movement is serious business, so it’s natural that we tend to be serious about it.

But I also think we need to be happy in the fight as well.

Contrary to boycott mythology, Israel is thriving economically, with investment and new trade deals being announced almost...
