    Great woman????????????

    This is the same woman that tells women that if your husband doesn't change how and when you want him to,leave him and he will come crawling back to you having made those changes.

    I have a few words for this broad,but since Jim won't allow cursing I will be nice.

    This woman claims she wants men and women to be equal in all accounts,but all she is really doing is trying to reverse the roles and have women dominate men.I am all for equality,but because of stormtroopers like Gloria Steinem,my wife left after five months of marriage because I would not change to be just like her,and I would not force my son to change to be just like her son.

    Sorry for the rant,but there are many great women out there,and Gloria Steinem is not one of them.

    Sorry, I just like the sayings. Some of them are kind of amusing. I personally am not familiar with everything Gloria Steinem stands for.

    I believe no one should want someone else to change to be just like themselves. Everyone is different. If your wife didn't like the way you were, she shouldn't expect you to change just to make her happy. You are who you are. Same for your son. I'm sorry for what's happened to you. I believe people should decide whether they can accept someone for who they are before they marry them instead of trying to change them afterwards and hurting everyone involved.

    Take care.

    Ahhhh, Margaret Thatcher, one of my favorites!! Gotta love these:

    Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.

    You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.

    I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.

    Of course it s the same old story. Truth usually is the same old story.

    If you want to cut your own throat, don t come to me for a bandage.

    And the best Thatcher quote ~

    I usually make up my mind about a man in ten seconds, and I very rarely change it.

    Then there's good 'ol Mae West:
    Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.

    He who hesitates is a damned fool.

    His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork.

    I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

    Then there are mine:

    Sorry about my rant earlier.Militaristic feminists eat away at me because of their lack of common sense.

    But the rest of those were quite entertaining.

    Here are a few

    Zsa Zsa Gabor

    I never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back.

    Husbands are like fires. They go out when unattended.

    A man in love is not complete until he is married. Then he is finished.

    Elayne Boosler

    When the sun comes up, I have morals again.

    Katherine Hepburn

    If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married.
