    Hey Brooke in response to your complaint of a coworker ,whom you have seen 2 times in 7 years, and having to put up with him telling you that you look good, and how mad that has made you , I know its tough to have put up with that , I mean 2 times in 7 years , how do you stand it, but rest assured you wont have to put up with it much longer, time will take care of that problem for you. In a few years, trust me ,you wont hear that from anyone, until then you will just have to suffer, but someday is coming and then finally you wil not be attractive to anyone. I n the meantime why not wear a dress , that doesnt look like you were poured into it.

    The health and physical condition of anyone who is running for President is fair game. There should be complete transparency for any presidental candidate, male or female, on medical issues, for obvious reasons.

    Having said that, I deplore the fact that men, particualrly the old white men who run Congress, feel they can say anything they want to women legislators, no matter how sarcastic or demeaning. I'd like the names so that I could actively work to get them defeated in their next election.

    Hey Mary got news for ya, old white men dont run congress anymore, that is why this country is sinking like a rock, and is falling from first place in everything to the bottom of everything.
