Mary, an OFH member spoke with me Sunday at the monthly mtg.  He has a QUESTION regarding Larry Summers' sexist remarks about women & science--see his lst sentence below (yellow-highlighted). I'm the one who posted the Protest on the site about him becoming the next Fed. Reserve Chair & then the Good News that our 4 Democratic Senators, including Elizabeth Warren--had blocked him--sent you both emails.
 
I don't have time & energy to research his Q. Still Recovering my sleep & strength from my Home Save--which happened a wk. ago Tuesday--as well as Aftermath in many ways from the New Survival-Thrival challenges.  Will update you with some details later.  I'm very relieved, but exhausted.  Was another Ordeal for me in many ways. 7th time now in 3 yrs. I have "tended to the Whole Picture Strategy & Details to "Bring It On Home." 
 
Mary, if  you can find the original source for Larry Summers' sexist comments & fwd. to me, I will post to the OFH site.
 
Thanks.

P. S.  There's been some question lately Within the OFH group of what's "On Topic" or not for the OFH site.  Since Feminism IS part of Humanism by definition; then my postings, re: Larry Summers' sexist comments are definitely ON topic (obviously).

Lawrence Summer claims that his remarks about Women and Science were taken out of context and was part of a larger talk or interview.  Does anybody know where one can find his full remarks so I can do some critical research on this.
 
With regard to the Tea Party, the thing that aggravates me is that they don't like ObamaCare but then they don't offer an alternative except the status quo which does not see to work for everybody.   It is easy to oppose anything - particularly if you do not have an alternative solution to offer.
 
Norma, I am responding to our conversation Sunday where you commented on my non-response to your e-mails.  I generally agree with your positions - however, with the above caveat re Lawrence Summers.

BREAKING NEWS: Boehner WILL hold government shutdown vote over Obamacare
Moments ago, news broke that Boehner will hold a vote this week to keep the government open -- but ONLY if Obamacare is defunded. It’s a complete cave to Tea Party Republicans. The final decision is set to be ratified by House Republicans TOMORROW MORNING. We must respond immediately.
