What Ever Happened to the War On Women?

 

You should know that there are some groups of people who go around claiming that there is a war on women, wasting no opportunity to accuse certain people and organizations of being participants in this so-called war on women. Those groups are always demonstrating, picketing, holding press conferences, and doing all kinds of things to call media attention to promote their claim that there is a war on women - and that they are organized to protect and defend women at all cost.

You should also know that the irony of this is that this will happen even though crime in the area has come down and the area has become one of the safest in the Bronx. But because crimes committed inside the prison (house of detention) are applied to local police precincts, the people of the Bronx are the ones being punished and paying the price for it.

Things That You Should Know

This legal change was made 2 years ago when Federal District Court Judge Gary L. Sharpe ruled in a lawsuit that a September primary will not allow sufficient time to send absentee ballots to military voters. This will be the second time that New Yorkers will experience separate primaries for federal and state races.
