Ladies, it appears that this has passed the House in what appears to be mostly, if not totally, by party-line vote. It would thus appear less likely to get through the Senate. Please take note of the dominance of Party Politics on this issue and let it enrage you as much as it does many males who want to see their wive’s, daughter’s and granddaughter’s future protected by this amendment. Make some noise- maybe, hopefully you can get some of those good ol’ boy dinosaurs off of their sanctimonious butts. … … It is disgusting that we are still waiting for a State or two to ratify the ERA (sorry, I don’t remember the number of states off hand). Maybe we should pick a target State and go shame the hell out of them, then on to the next and so forth. Yes extend the deadline, there should be NO time limit for the ratification of the ERA. It is beyond ridiculous that we are still waiting for this.
