    It's tiresome always getting labeled for having opinions, isn't it? I identify with a dozen different groups, probably. What if I only identified with one?

    Ok--I'll pick one. I'm a proud snowflake libtard--how's that?

    Yes. I see that as disrespectful to women from miles away and in 2018 this statement just is not going to work for much of the US population. And I agree that it shouldn't work for the US population........Rob

    Yep, that's pretty toxic, but tell me, being a political junkie and residing in Ohio for the past 40 years, I'm not familiar with that slogan. Can you enlighten me (Google couldn't)?

    That is likely because I switched the genders! The sign I saw actually said:
    "When women lead, Ohio prospers."

    Rob, I love how you refer to Trump-too funny! Yes women should get the same sentences but things are unequal in the justice system. Minorities get much tougher sentences then white people all the time. At least cosby is going to prison but as Jane pointed out people have gotten far worse sentences for the same crime.

    Douglas Ginsberg forced to withdraw his nomination by Reagan when he admitted using marijuana in the 1960s and 1970s.
