What country do I live in? What year is this?
These are the questions I have been asking myself since Republicans took hold of Congress in January. I mean seriously, I thought Republicans said they were going to create jobs, jobs, jobs? Instead, they want a piece of my reproductive system. The lying coming from the Republican party is breathtaking. What is scarier than a lying Republican? A stupid voter.
I never really gave this voting thing a second thought until the 2008 Presidential election. If I recall, after Senator Obama gave his acceptance speech for the nomination, he had like a 10 point lead over McCain. And then when Palin was unleashed on us, McCain gained a 10 point lead. Really? THAT many people were going to vote for McCain based JUST on Palin being his VP pick? I admit I had a sense of History when she came out. I was thinking, “We’re either going to have a black President or a woman Vice President.” – Then the wench opened her mouth and that was the end of that. Now for 22 seconds I felt the historic aspect of what was happening, but just because Palin was on the VP ticket doesn’t mean I was going to vote Republican. You couldn’t pay me enough money to vote Republican. How could so many people say they were changing their vote? Are they unaware of the fundamental differences between the two parties? I mean just having a woman on the VP ticket would make someone change their vote from Democrat to Republican? Who are you? I have some questions for you.
I really loathe the argument that it’s best to not vote straight ticket. Or that lame excuse of, ‘I vote for the person.’ – That’s nice and all, but a Republican is a Republican is a Republican. No matter what they look like, pigs and lipstick and all.
I want to start with this whole abortion issue the Republicans have been forcing. Their assault on women’s health, and women’s rights in general is sickening. The first thing is that these Republicans don’t want ANY woman to have an abortion. So they are forcing these already unwanted babies into this world. And we all know Republicans DO NOT care about babies after they come out of the womb. So then think about it, they are making these unwanted babies be born to people who DO NOT WANT THEM. And where does that lead to? One of two ways. If the child is anything other than white, it’s going to the State. We all know only white babies get adopted that easily. And the people who actually WANT non-white babies, the disabled children. the older children. the crack-addicted babies, those would be the gay people and yet, Republicans don’t want them to be able to adopt, because the kids will ‘catch the gay.’
RE-READ what I wrote, or maybe I’ll recap. Republicans are willing to force women to have unwanted children, and then the non-white kids who are put up for adoption aren’t allowed to be adopted by a gay couple. And ask a Republican for Government money for the Foster Care system and see what they say. They say: F U. See the hypocrisy?
We’re not done.
I’ve noticed Republicans only see things in black or white. There is NO gray area with them. It’s either this way, or that way. And nothing in between. As witnessed in the past week, the Republicans and the Tea Baggers are all about de-funding Planned Parenthood. They have been LYING so much about Planned Parenthood and what they do for the last couple of weeks. And I don’t know why ALL women aren’t up in arms about this assault on us.
Michele Bachmann: Such an embarrassment to women everywhere. She’s against abortion, yet she doesn’t want ANYONE to have health care. Plus she’s against a woman being able to write-off a breast pump. I mean this girl HATES women. Michele Bachmann, why do you hate women so much? You are not what Susan B. Anthony had in mind when she was fighting for women’s rights. YOU want to take ALL rights away from women. I actually do know the answer as to why you hate women. You are a stupid, stupid woman. I mean you are just plain dumb. Your ‘slavery’ speech proves that. You are shameful, Michele Bachmann. Comparing Planned Parenthood to Lens Crafters. I hope that you, or any of your daughters are ever in a position to have to agonize on whether to terminate a pregnancy because you were raped. Shame on you. You make me sick.
I know this particular blog is all over the place. I’m sorry. But this assault on women’s rights is making me physically ill.
Jon Kyl. F*CK YOU.
