I’m Pissed! Right NOW!

ALL women in this country of ours, in 2012, should be so f*cking pissed when these old, white, Republican MEN stand up/do interviews & really think they’re doing us a f*cking favor by making sure ‘we have all the information we need’ when seeking an abortion. The hubris alone makes me want to punch a goddamn kitten in the face. Abortion has been LEGAL for almost 40 years, WE HAVE ALL THE FUCKING INFO WE NEED ALREADY. Why all of a sudden in 2012 do these OLD REPUBLICAN MEN think they need to ‘help’ women in deciding what to do with our own bodies? No seriously, someone answer this for me. No I get it, the GOP think ALL abortions are a form of birth control, and mostly black women are seeking these abortions. Right?

Ladies, the condescension alone in them standing there thinking they are doing US a favor, by providing info. Why haven’t we started a Revolution yet???

The state elections in November are going to be just as important as the Presidential election. The state legislatures are the ones taking away women’s reproductive rights. WE WILL NOT FORGET ANY OF THIS COME NOVEMBER! If the GOP takes over, I promise you there will be bills introduced by the GOP taking away our right to vote. “If you’re a single mother, you may NOT vote.” – Think that sounds crazy? Any crazier than a bill in AZ stating you HAVE to tell your f*cking boss you’re using birth control for medical purposes? THAT’S REAL. Or a bill in MN stating that if you’re a single mother, you can be charged with child abuse. THAT’S F*CKING REAL TOO. Don’t forget in November, ladies. The GOP wants to take away our rights, and that’s not a lie. It’s a fact.

Journalists and Reporters Interviewing Romney & Santorum

Just for the record, this isn’t for anyone working at Fox News, for the simple fact that you have your own agenda and will never ask the GOP candidates any questions that actually matter. Now that that’s out-of-the-way ….

It’s kind of shameful to watch reporters/journalists interview the GOP candidates because it seems the ‘follow-up’ question is obsolete. Especially those talking with Mitt Romney. I don’t get it, is it because you’re scared? Is it because you don’t like confrontation? Are you just not informed enough about Mitt Romney and his constant flip-flopping? Someone help me out here because I am watching and SCREAMING at the TV which questions to ask, and which questions to follow up with. And I’m disappointed every time.

Now I get that Romney is pulling a ‘Palin’ right now, he’s really not available. And for the most part he’s going on Conservative radio/talk shows for an easy interview. But this also applies to the debate moderators. I mean seriously, the very first question to Mitt Romney at the next debate should be, “Are you aware you’ve flip-flopped on every single issue you’ve been asked about?” And not just the ‘I’ve changed my mind years later’ kind of flip-flopping, I’m talking that this dude flip-flops in the same interview in the same sentence. This should be the question posed to him every interview he does. And would someone please ask him this, “You’ve said that ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ weren’t the words you would have used, so please tell us what words you would use.” Why isn’t that asked to him? Nobody’s asked Mitt Romney THAT question yet? Really?

Also his stance on abortion. Here is Mitt Romney in 2002 in a debate when running for Governor of MA. Seems pretty convincing about his stance on abortion. If you actually watch the video, it looks like Mitt Romney was a career flip-flopper. But, someone needs to remind him of this and how he spoke so admirably of his mother. By the way, this is definitely a video the Obama campaign should start circulating. At the end of the video, Romney says over and over, “My position is very clear.” So the next reporter who talks to Romney, ask him what changed. This video shows Mitt Romney beautifully flip-flopping on abortion. And Climate Change. And this video is 4 minutes of Mitt Romney flip-flopping. I could watch these all day.

Now onto Rick Santorum. It seems like he does get asked the questions I would ask. One being, ‘would you make your daughter give birth to her rapist’s baby?’ His answer is ‘yes.’ It’s a no brainer for him. Which kind of makes me sick. What a household that must have been. To be a female in the Santorum household. They love zygotes more than their living, breathing daughters. If some misogynist in Wisconsin, Senator Glenn Grothman wants it to be ‘child abuse’ if you’re a single mother, I want it to be child abuse when you FORCE your daughter to carry her rapist’s baby to term. And Santorum should NOT get credit for ‘being consistent’, Absolutely not. Not when he hates all things non-white male. This guy thinks he’s a martyr, the Pope in a sweater vest. The fact that he’s proud of his views against contraception. “The dangers of contraception” as he puts it. The GOP discourse right now is extremely anti-women. And Santorum is their leader. Remember, he’s the guy who brought a dead fetus home so his other children could mourn it. He did that. And people support this guy?

I find it frustrating that reporters seem a little afraid to ask these candidates any serious questions. My theory is they are afraid Romney or Santorum will never want to be interviewed again by that person. But for the love of God, if reporters ‘back off’ during the general, I’m going to be really, really, pissed. The only reason why I kind of want Mitt Romney to get the nomination is because he’ll HAVE to answer for his flip-flopping. So here is just some advice to non Fox News reporters that will interview him.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK: Memorize everything Mitt Romney flip-flopped on, which IS everything. Bring video if you have to. Make him watch his own flip-flop videos on YouTube. (That would be freakin’ awesome) And most importantly, get a backbone. Too many reporters ask a question, the candidate lies through his teeth, and the reporter moves on. That happen ALL the time. And that’s why I think that these reporters are just not informed enough going into the interview. Am I right? Wrong?

This kind of reporting and interviewing is going to be so important in the general election. If Mitt Romney never has to answer to his constant flip-flopping, journalism is dead to me.

Rant About the Candidates

Where does one even begin with this? Is it really 2012 and women are having to fight for birth control? BIRTH CONTROL!! First off, the Catholic Church is the very LAST organization that should be complaining about being discriminated against. There was NO discrimination when they decided to cover up their unbelievable sex abuse scandal. The hubris of the Catholic Church in that situation should have been the end of them. But the whole ‘God’ thing kept them up and running. And to this day they seem very unapologetic for covering up the rape and molestation of young boys. I have NO empathy for their rights and beliefs. Cardinals and Bishops knowingly put child molesters in other parishes. The Catholic Church is really going to complain about Catholic hospitals/businesses having to include contraception in their insurance package? Those corporations are way more important than the little boys that were raped and sexually assaulted in their own Church. Nope. No empathy/sympathy from me.

The three GOP Presidential candidates have shown such misogyny in the last couple of weeks that it makes me ill. Of course we have to start with Rick Santorum. THE Catholic of all Catholics. Except he’s the least Christ-like. The amount of racism and bigotry he has shown since he entered the race, plus his history in politics have been in direct contrast with the teachings of Jesus Christ. I went to Catholic school. I went to Church three days a week for umpteen years and took religion and bible classes five days a week. I don’t remember Jesus being as hateful as Rick Santorum. Rick Santorum wants you to hate gay people and women more than anything. He believes his Faith and religious beliefs should be the law of the land. Not kidding. Can you imagine if a Muslim candidate wanted Sharia law to be the law of America? There has been so much hate for Muslims in this country that Republicans have started pulling ‘problems’ out of thin air just to have a fight on their hands. I don’t remember one American Muslim ever saying they wanted Sharia law to be the law of the United States. GOP politicians and pundits came up with this, and then stated it as fact. How despicable. And yet there are so many GOP voters that go ahead and believe them, even when the fact is that not one Muslim in America has ever said that they want Sharia law to be our law. Stunning.  Santorum said, “There should always be a Jesus candidate.” Except Mr. Santorum is the antithesis of Jesus. If I recall, Jesus was about feeding the poor and helping the poor. Mitt Romney said it himself, he is not concerned about the very poor. Well Jesus was. I’m pretty sure somewhere in the Bible it says, “Blessed are the meek, for they will Inherit the Earth.” Who do these guys think the ‘meek’ are? And that brings me to the point I seem to make every day of my life. These ‘Christians’ cherry pick the Bible like no other. 

And Mitt Romney, I can’t wait for you to be the GOP nominee and HAVE to answer for your constant flip-flopping. You really are the guy who says whatever needs to be said at the particular moment. Whatever crowd you’re in front of, whatever reporter you’re speaking to, you say whatever appeases what’s in front of you. That just means one thing. You have ZERO integrity. None. And who wants a President with no integrity? Nevermind. I found this amazing video, amusing really, of many of Romney’s flip-flops. I wish more than anything he would watch this and try to explain it. This guy’s talented. The dude can flip-flop twice in the same interview! That takes major skill. I wonder if all his aides are doing right now is finding ways for him to explain his massive flip-flops. I’m serious. There isn’t one single issue Mitt Romney hasn’t flip-flopped on. No integrity. 

And we’ve saved the best for last. Newt Gingrich. Such a horrible person that I don’t even have to prove it. This guy is such a blatant racist and doesn’t even try to cover it up. When you say that President Obama is a ‘food stamp President’, that’s racist. I don’t know why the media is so afraid to call it for what it is. The GOP has scared the media into thinking that calling someone a ‘racist’ is the worst thing to do. No, no. When you say racist things, constantly, you are a racist. He really is the Racist Face of the Republican Party. This guy actually said this:

“Our President is trapped in his father’s time machine. Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost”

 

You know what’s worse than that? Americans who said yeah, yeah I bet he’s right. I do believe Obama is having a séance every night to channel his dead Kenyan father to get tips on how to govern America. Oh my God. I do believe this country is very dumb. Extremely illogical and irrational. And I blame Sarah Palin.

Fox News: GOP Platform

First off, having to write this little bloggy blog is making me ill. Just the thought that in 2012, women as a whole, are under attack by the House GOP and ALL of the GOP Presidential candidates. It’s stunning that I have to even write anything about women’s rights being stripped. Especially women’s health rights. But why I’m doing this today is in response to Chris Wallace’s interview with Rick Santorum this past Sunday morning. Now I admit I don’t watch Fox News or even Fox on Sunday mornings and this is THE reason why. Santorum made the egregious claim that breast cancer is linked to abortions. This has been repeatedly debunked over and over and yet there he is still making the claim. And what did Chris Wallace do? Absolutely nothing. Great job. Please can we take away Chris Wallace’s label of ‘journalist’ now? Or ‘reporter’? Because he sucks at it. I would think a 5th grader would have said something to Santorum about that being NOT TRUE. Why didn’t you, Chris? You can’t call yourself a ‘journalist’ when all you’re doing is giving these candidates a platform to spew their lies to the American people, with NO challenge whatsoever. So all that makes you is a question asker. I’m sure your dad would be proud of your journalistic integrity. Oh wait. You don’t have integrity, which makes you a perfect anchor for Fox News.

And this going to anyone to interviews Rick Santorum in the future: Why are you so afraid to call him out on his lies? Ask him, “This theory of breast cancer being linked to abortion has been disproven over and over, so why are you talking about it as if it’s a fact?” What’s so hard about asking THAT kind of question?

I get this little blog means nothing to anyone at Fox News,or a Fox News viewer, but in the general election, people are going to see that you are a ‘news’ organization that just lets Republicans have a pulpit. No integrity.
