What Country Do I Live In? What Year is This?

13 Apr

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.

    One: I think you became an atheist because you are so full of hate that you couldn’t reconcile that with Jesus’ message of love. Don’t blame others. We all live in the same world and we all don’t turn out like you.
    Two: Ann Coulter of the left, pretty funny.
    Three: it’s hard to say that your arguments are based on fact when you say that the Republicans want to control your body. How about NOW which has tried for years now to convince women that having children is wrong and they should abort them as soon as they can? The Republicans don’t want to control your body, they want everyone to stop having unwanted pregnancies. If you know you can get pregnant, yet do nothing to prevent it, you should be willing to accept the consequences.
    Four: you want to “call those haters out” yet you espouse hate like it’s water. What hypocricy!
    Five: This country is not a country of racists, bigots and homophobes. It s actually the left that is racist; how else can you explain defending a president whose policies, foreign and domestic, are destroying the very fabric of this nation; a president who doesn’t have the resume to be the CEO of a small business or corporation, yet is treated like some sort of holy, wise man.

      Well the first thing I can say about you, for sure, is that you state your opinions as fact. And you live in a land of delusion. You should read THIS blog, because it fits you to a T. http://t.co/oCurky5 – What the truth and facts are, you just brush them aside if they don’t suit your agenda.

      “It s actually the left that is racist; how else can you explain defending a president whose policies, foreign and domestic, are destroying the very fabric of this nation”

      You saying this nonsense is why you have no credibility. None whatsoever. It doesn’t even make sense. I call out people who ARE saying racist things. Trust me, a true racist is the last one to know about racism.

      And I assume you were a Bush/Cheney supporter, and their policies were just peachy?? They ran this country into the ground. THAT IS A FACT.

      And you comparing these disgusting House Republicans wanting to take away a woman’s right to choose, basically wanting to take away women’s rights PERIOD, you compare that to the National Organization of Women? WOW. Such idiocy.

      By the way, when YOU become a foster parent and start adopting all of these unwanted babies, and grow a uterus, then you can make a comment about women’s rights.

      I hope you don’t have daughters, and God forbid if they were raped. They already know they can’t go to daddy for support. Sad.

    “Well the first thing I can say about you, for sure, is that you state your opinions as fact.”

    “And I assume you were a Bush/Cheney supporter, and their policies were just peachy?? They ran this country into the ground. THAT IS A FACT.”

    You failed basic logic, didn’t you?

    As for your whole, my condolences on your lack of intelligence and your close-minded, narrow outlook. I really hope you can improve the latter by overcoming the former. Sad to see there are bigoted people like you in our society, but unfortunately you’re not alone.

    No racist ever considers himself a racist.
    No fascist ever considers himself a fascist.
    No idiot ever considers himself and idiot.
    In times of crisis the fascism tends to skyrocket and people start to believe in things they don’t understand. It’s too hard to comprehend intelectually the vital reasons to the loss of happiness and we exchange nowledge for creed. It’s a VERY dangerous path for a society to go down. Exactly the same as germany in the 30s.
    People start to believe in:
    1. The Enemy, as defined by the government.
    2. The need for powerful aremed forces to secure the national integrity
    3. The supreme qualities of the ‘pure’, those who are born to a specific nationality, skincolor or religion. (In germany, the nazis falsely believed themselves to be ARIAN and that it had something to do with the vikings. The arians actually lived in PERSIA, and we all know where that is).
    4. “The fitest survives”. The typical deceiving use of darwin’s evolutionary theory is one of the strongest signs in society that fascism is on the way. If you think that the old or sick should be sent to the forest and that the nature should take care of them ‘cous they are not strong enough to survive on their own, you ARE a fascist!
    5. “Since I know the truth, even those who don’t agree with me must live according to my belief”. This is a commonground for rightwing conservativism and religion. Why do we all have to believe in the same thing? Are you THAT insecure about your own “truth”? I guess so.

    Plz people, live and let live. Be responsable to yourself and your unborn children and don’t bring children to the world without being sure you can give them a good life. Take science and humanism as the pillars to build a socity on, not belief in some god or divine rulings. Religion has caused enough suffering as it is, let’s try to build a world where PERSONS are biggest treasure, not participants in a fairytale. NO WOMAN has aborted a child for her own amusement yet. It’s a painfull process that I don’t think anyone wants to go through. But all women have the RIGHT TO MAKE THEIR OWN DESICIONS IN LIFE.

    Sincerely, Jonas Janson

    “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.”
    I missed the part where Republicans, or anyone for that matter, made abortion illegal again. And since it’s not illegal how exactly are Republicans forcing any babies into the world? The ONLY thing Republicans have done is to remove federal funding of some types of abortions and planned parenthood. Abortion and any other topic which such a great percentage of American people have a fundamental issue with (outside of politicians) should not be funded by the American tax payer’s money. Anything so tumultuous, so polarized, and so passionately opposed by more than just a subculture deserves the respect to be not publicly funded. Try and keep in mind the goal of Republicans is to spend less, and have the government involved with less of our day to day lives and decisions. Also keep in mind that planned parenthood being defunded means nothing. Very nearly all county health departments offer the exact same women’s health procedures for the same sliding scale prices based on income.

    @Jonas: Look up what fascism please. Stringent socioeconomic controls? Government which controls everything, including commerce, such as Nazi Germany did? These ideals are the opposite of the Republican party. Small government, this means the government being in control of, having power over, as little as possible. This is the only way to secure PERSONAL liberties, and state’s rights. If you take a class on history, be sure to read up on Adam’s and Jefferson’s ideas on those concepts in regards to being opposed to the federalist movements behind Hamilton. They, and modern Democrats want nothing more than to break checks and balances and return a level of sovereign power and control to the leadership position of our country. Republicans strive to keep things privatized, this means the government has less control or leverage over the people. What one should be worried about is the American people becoming reliant on social programs to the point they give up their civil liberties to be “taken care of”. Progressive ideas under FDR, and LBJ are nothing short of the end of individual freedoms, as when we rely on and receive from the government everything we need to function, we are no longer free. Lazy liberals may be okay with taking a hand out and giving up their voice,but I’m not. Private charities exist, which more Republicans donate to annually, I might add.

    “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.”
    I’m drowning in irony. The audacity to make a statement about how an entire group of Americans who adhere to a specific set of political ideals is a specific way…all of them. You’ve met them all have you? They’re all black and white, and your view of them is gray? You didn’t even use a single word that leaves room for even a minority of them to be anything other than what you say they are. Give me a break.

    Lying about planned parenthood? So you’re saying the multiple undercover videos are fakes? I’m pretty sure the legal actions taken against those identified in the videos were quite real. And as stated above, the defunding of planned parenthood means NOTHING. Not only is it still capable of continuing to operate on it’s own, as other businesses here in America, BUT we have government funded health departments, use them. Horray.

    “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.”
    Are you joking? Are you under some ignorant impression that planned parenthood is the only place in the WORLD women can get abortions? Planned Parenthood is just like any other office which offers basic medical procedures. They have no right or entitlement to PUBLIC funding than any other chain company. They’re not non-profit! They’re not saints giving out cheap birth control, pap smears, and abortions. Third time now, county health departments offer ALL THE SAME PROCEDURES and more. Granted some, only some, do not offer abortions. Some do. Places to get abortions exist, if you can’t afford them, and no one will give you money, have a fund raiser. And apparently every abortion need in the world is a rape victim, right. You do realize the government did not withdraw funds from abortions involving rape, incest, and medical danger. I’m all for the government not funding irresponsible idiots who think abortions are birth control. Anyone continues to be able to get an abortion, however to receive federal funding aid it must be the result of rape, incest, or danger to life. How freaking hard is this to wrap you brain around?

    Your misperception of women’s rights being antagonized is based on very poorly thought out ideas, and blatant misinformation. You should be ashamed of yourself for buying into propaganda without first looking into the truth of the matter.
