Do The Freakin Math

Liberals and conservatives alike frequently rely on limited evidence, personal experience, religious beliefs or gut emotions to determine solutions for complex problems. From immigration to global warming - taxes to terrorism - or health care to free trade - analytical study is rare. Science based policy making isn’t the way of Washington. And the consequences are catastrophic. Change is urgently needed. Just do the freakin’ math.

CEDAW ratification vital to U.S. national security

President Obama will likely sign the CEDAW treaty but we can't assume the Senate will ratify it. Our founding fathers designed our governing system so minorities can block progress. If the extremists in the U.S. Senate understand that our national security is best served by subordinating our national sovereignty to ensuring the human rights of women...we have a chance at improving our security.
Most murderous Islamic extremists come from nations where women's rights don't exist. Women's rights to an education, economic and political empowerment is the best means of reducing population growth and related environmental pressures of wasteful and destructive consumption patterns. Women's access to basic health services and health education to become community health workers, nurses and doctors is one of the best means of preventing and preparing for pandemics and other infectious threats. Empowering all the world's women to gain and hold bread winning jobs is an economic stimulus package that will rise all boats. And, finally, Winning the hearts and minds of women everywhere...and helping them save their children from early death, permanent disability or brain stunting malnutrition will give us the best intelligence we need to find males who are determined to mass murder those people in the civilized world -- who bring health, education, clean water, sanitation and nutrition to men, women and children that women love and care for on a daily basis.
Educating the radical men in the U.S. Senate to the needs of women world wide is the best shot we have of improving U.S. national security. 'National sovereignty' is a lethal concept in an irreversible hyper-interdependent world.
