I'd like to build the ultimate Halloween music playlist. Your help is appreciated.

Please submit your suggestions for a Halloween music playlist.

Halloween themed music, i.e. The Monster Mash, is an obvious choice but also any song with Halloween-esque themes and words in the title or lyrics. For example --

Black Magic Woman by Santana

Spooky by Atlantic Rhythm Section

The complete White Zombie discography

I Put a Spell on You by Screamin' Jay Hawkins

What's on your music player?

Thanks in advance.

When did a woman's right to defend herself become a RW talking point?

Consider the statement, "A woman's right to self defense is a RW talking point."

Now, think about what that implies. That means, in order to be a member of the Left in good standing a woman must cede her right to self defense.

Is there no right to self-defense, period; or do men only enjoy the right?

Does the Left believe because it champions the right to an abortion in the event of rape therefore it is justified in telling women they have no right to effectively resist a rapist?

Does the Left believe because it championed the Violence Against Women Act they are exempt from allowing a woman to defend herself when the Restraining Order is ignored by the abuser?

Yet, women who do exercise their right to defend themselves are belittled, condescended to and shouted down.

(Typical behavior among abusive partners, by the way.)

The right of women to defend themselves shouldn't be a RW talking point; it should be a universal talking point. Too many claiming to be a member of the Left need to shed their medieval expectations of female subservience and recognize the independence and self-determination of women.
