just another rant …
about abortion, jobs, guns, our debt/deficit religious freedom and more seem to be just lying in wait while some Republicans have edged over the cliff to bring up these topics now. Those on the extreme right who belong to the birther crowd and getting more airplay are demanding or questioning the validity of our President’s birth place while demanding people stay out of their personal lives. Both factions are odd and offensive … just sayin
Is it just me or is “this do as we say not as we do” Political Party of NO have your blood-boiling like mine because as the comments, complaints and vile talk about our President’s background, history and earlier behavior became major topics of discussion on the airwaves crops back up. The same people who call themselves Republicans, Tea party members and or Conservatives continue to feel they are above the questions and cannot be held accountable, questioned or treated just like the President. These same people have accused President Obama of withholding information from the public yet they get offended when asked to provide more information please because they are running for public office. I feel their constituents deserve to know, the public and Americans deserve to know how these people will vote on issues of religion…will their beliefs dictate to how the vote and impact our constitutional rights.
If you are listening and are paying attention conservatives and some conservadems are pushing the discussion of women’s rights, religion, race and gender preference up to the surface to rile their base again and leading up to the 2012 the talk will become even more vitriolic. I have to say how confusing it is to hear conservatives, mostly southern men still having a need to control women, their bodies, our healthcare needs, and our rights in the year 2011/2012.
It’s bad enough that women on the Republican side mostly extreme tea party members say they are fiscal conservatives and want less government in their(our) lives yet topics like abortion, stem cell research/experiments and religious freedom have them not just flustered but their undies are in full bunch mode. I could not vote for anyone let alone a woman who feels I have no right to choose because they are pro-life. I am pro-life but people …women and families should have the right it choose alternative options. The fact is no one chooses to have an abortion just because and if nothing else having a safe procedure is better than having a woman be desperate enough to take actions that would put her life at risk. I happen to feel strongly that the notion of “It is my body” is has been pushed aside and The Hyde amendment should be enough for folks on the right and or left to accept as the law of the land though more laws banning abortion creates more babies, families with more need more poor. I also wonder if as one conservative woman said… the need for babies to adopt is great and banning abortion could create the environment for parents who want to adopt…. What? My first thought was these people say they are pro-life, against anchor babies yet they want to implement some sort of baby factory for American families, which is so odd for a Political Party with that Family Values Platform they seem to live by. It always makes me want to scream hey, stay out of my life and like others I am sounding off the alarm because they will be working on making it harder for women to have the right to choose . We must all ask how many in Congress will support the good’ole days and back up these archiac bills . Though we are in 21st Century the ideology is barbaric and because the old school dogma crosses the line, it solidifies how elitist the comments and behavior from Republicans as of late. If you live under a Republican State or conservative ideology, which promotes a class system, that feels they want government out of their lives but not the people they represent or practices systematic discrimination or blatant hate, you should think about the impact repealing, replacing and eliminating will have on his or her own families, friend’s co-workers. The idea that some Republicans want to go back to a time when women and people of colour had no rights sounds silly but before you laugh, take some time and listen closely.
just when I thought, we were all moving into the 21st century
