Not The Age of Aquarius. September 19, 2013

In the course of an average day something usually occurs that gets my goat.  Often more than one and it generally has been exaggerated by social media.  I know – blame it on the Internet – but nothing is sacred and now the profane has entered the realm of the used to be sacred and we are in a mess.  This doesn’t mean I am going to leave FB or go offline.  I love it most of the time but there is soooo much stupid crap shared it can drive a reasonably intelligent human crazy.

Todays’ review:

The United States – “not the greatest country in the world” (I agree with Putin on that) has spun out of control in ways I don’t think anyone could have imagined.  Post-racial?  I don’t think so.  Jim Crow is alive in every corner and on the Internet.  He jumps out constantly allowing us to know just what a screwed mentality exists in this “land of the free”.  It is embarrassing and downright shameful for a “natural born” American who wishes all that buying and selling of humans never happened.  And has never ended – at least in the hearts and minds of too many 21st Century Americans.   What so many of us imagined…no fantasized…would happen when Barack Obama was elected is that the lion would lie with the lamb and love would steer the stars.  Folks.  This is not the Age of Aquarius.  Look at the Congress.  They make me sick.  They are disgusting and they know it.  Lazy, bigoted, misogynist old men who are scared of the Black Guy in the White House.  Hot mess scared.  And stupid and don’t have a real grip on what they are doing and what it bodes for the future.

I am not worried about the death of the middle class as much as I am afraid of the quantum leap in crime we will face if essential services to low income (poor) Americans are cut or denied.  Angry, jobless, homeless, hungry individuals and families will be willing to do almost anything to feed their kids. Crime will escalate. And since many who are having babies (and for some odd reason the true believers think this is really a smart move) are in the lower income bracket or worse, teenagers who will be denied any assistance, those babies if they survive without,  will see themselves as worthless and act accordingly.  There will be a ton of secret sex going on too and no birth control and no choice and no assistance and no food and medical care and then what.  John Boehner is gonna order another pitcher of martinis and tee off?  The people who support this philosophy have not realized that Harry Potter is a made up character and no magic wand is going to return us to the era of black and white TV.  In fact, lots of these “true believers” weren’t even born then.  Thus far I have not heard a single answer from any of these miscreants about the “babies”.  And believe me, the more mouths there are to feed on this dying little planet, the worse it will be – not the better.  Read Malthus.

Post racial?  Do Not Be Black in America.  Don’t do it.  Forget the Happy Family in the White House – being black in this country is a capital crime.  Ask Miss America?  Ask anyone who has ever been pulled over driving while black.  Ask my family?  Jim Crow is alive and just because you wish it was different – it isn’t.  Just because Mr. O wishes it were different – it isn’t and Mrs. O rolls her eyes with good reason.  If Mr. O had to run again – he could simply choose as his campaign slogan “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”.

Women?  Close your legs girlies.  You are the Holy Grail for the crusaders.  Your vagina and your reproductive decisions and your right to decide your own fate.  Rape?  Nahh.  You asked for it?  It wasn’t really rape. That outfit.  Gang rape?  College boy antics.  Drugged date rape?  Well – what did you think would happen?  This is mainly white guy rape.  Black guy rape is depraved.  Period.

Abortion – or as I call it “choice” = murder.  You are going to burn in hell.  Don’t believe in hell?  Well THEY do and that’s where you are going because they do.  The babies.  Ask them.  I have no idea.

Gay?  Shame, shame, shame.  Well mostly males shame, shame, shame.  Straight men like to watch “two gals go at it”, so Lesbians take less of a hit – but they are disgusting in general because they do not all look like Penthouse models.  And a good shtup would cure all that anyway – preferably using their penis.  Gay marriage?  Legal, mostly but disgusting too.  Pray it away but not in their churches because it is against God’s will.  Which God?  You can love your fellow person but make sure it is not your fellow man if you are a man and not your fellow woman, if you are a woman (unless you are Penthouse material).

Universal health care?  Commie, pinko, socialist, weirdo wrong.  Uncivilized even.  Oh Canada.

Jingo Journalism.  Sounds like a jumprope rhyme.  Reads like a jumprope rhyme.   Proliferating in geometric progressions.

Peace?  Highly overrated because it is a fantasy.  We like to kill.  Been doing it since written history. We love it.  Any method, any reason, anywhere.  This is a blood soaked planet.

So as I approach another alpha boomer birthday, this is what gets my goat.  This not all that gets my goat but this is today’s list. Don’t abandon hope,but don’t confuse this with the Age of Aquarius because it isn’t.

Lost in the Vagina Labyrinths March 5, 2011

Small government is alleged to mean less government interference by the government into matters which are not theirs to control. How did my vagina get into the mess?

 

I am well past the age of abortion or birth control worries and I have always been pro-choice – yet the idea that I could not make this choice chills me to the bone and beyond.  I have made it for myself, by myself in the past.  It seems I can be treated for a growth or a virus or a hip replacement without much to do,  but when it comes to an unplanned pregnancy the entire government wants to look up my crotch and have a say.   It is none of the government’s business. (and believe me,  if someone in government needs to make a choice – chances are they will go and do exactly as they want.  They will have the money and the cover-up and the arrogance to take their wife or daughter or girlfriend to the friendly and accommodating doctor and groom that womb.  With no comment and no conversation.)  Yet the suggestion by many of our bible thumping, holy rolling conservatives in government amounts to this: snatch and jail any woman or doctor who dares to conduct a private procedure in a private room with a patient.  Some want to go so far to make sure that a miscarriage was not an act of abortion and how they plan to do this implies a look up the snatch of any suspect.  Sharia anyone?  Or is this just a cheap thrill conversation for a group of highly repressed, little dicked, old white men who don’t get enough vagina and will use any reason to discuss it.

Ladies and gentlemen, do you have any clue who the customers of most massage parlors are?  Escort services? Whores?    Who are the ones who love to kneel on peas for hours while they are told they are dickless wonders?  Who like rubber and leather and the smell of numbers one and two up close and personal?  Middle aged and old white men are the prime demographic for such activities.  These are the same jolly chaps who want to tell women how to run their own reproductive systems as long as it includes abstinence and absolutely no abortion or birth control.     They will pay to roam the vagina labyrinths wrapped in leather and studs; father children they deny and lie to their friends, families and constituents and have the arrogance  then to police my crotch.  Is the way they see stimulus – creation of new jobs  regulating the vaginas of American women?  This is America in 2011.  Italy has abortion and the Pope lives there!!!

Ask them – all of them – the men and their self-righteous women – WHAT ABOUT THE BABIES?  They change the subject.   They won’t support welfare assistance nor will they provide healthcare.  Makes you wonder if they have some side business that traffic in babies and young children.  Other countries do.  It’s very profitable.  With the Internet it far too easy to trade, buy or negotiate damn near anything.  So when you wonder “what about the babies”,  wonder where they could wind up and wonder what they could wind up doing.

Government is a cesspool – we know this for sure and this country has found its way back into the morass.  There is much to be learned from the history of the very white and very rich and very amoral.  Somewhere they all meet in the Bohemian Grove of the Vagina Labyrinth – not really understanding or unwilling to learn why this is the last place on earth they have any right  to be.

Pro-Abortion Groups, John? What Exactly Do They Do? October 17, 2008

I was wrong.  Last night I watched McCain who twitches and grimaces like he has Tourette’s and Democrat nominee Obama – who looks like an ad from GQ,  hash it out – again.  It was painful.  I think maybe just hearing it might have been better.  Watching was painful.  And just when I thought they had said everything they could – again – McCain started using a term I was not familiar with.  And he used it more than once and I thought he had invented it for the debate.  Silly me.  Apparently “Pro-Abortion” is used by many groups who distort the actual meaning of Pro-Choice.  Here’s two I found – and I didn’t think I would actually find many because it is such an idiotic concept – who would even try.  Well I was wrong. 
 http://www.hli.org/article_ny_abortion_bullying_mexico.html
http://www.cirtl.org/lifefoes.htm
 are merely two groups who actively use this term to describe people who want to choose their own actions.  As offensive as I find it,  I also question the veracity of the term itself. It cannot be an accurate  because who can force anyone to have an abortion?  Pro-choice groups do not use guns, or bombs or threats to coerce anyone into an abortion.  Period.  You may have a bully of a parent or husband who tries or succeeds – but that is family.  No group I know of – who advocates choice wants you to have an abortion if you would like to have a baby instead. No group who is pro-choice targets pro-life groups for murder.  Pro-Choice is a name for people who think having a child or an abortion is private and no ones business but ones own.  Pro-Choice says that prevention of unwanted pregnancies is the best way to reduce the need for abortion.  They offer choices about preventing unplanned pregnancies – including abstinence.  Pro-Life offers one thing and one thing only.  A baby.  Wanted or Unwanted.  Healthy or Compromised. Married or Unmarried.  Even rape victims and even mothers at high risk for death.  This is pretty much what they want.  And now John McCain wants  us to accept the term Pro-Abortion and it is simply incorrect.    John McCain – who must have folks vetting his terms and speeches – knows that NARAL and Planned Parenthood are NOT Pro-Abortion.  John McCain knows that moderate GOP voters know this too.  So he comes across as an idiot, a shill and a stooge for the Right Wing Christians.  Do I think he is all those things – I don’t know – I just know what he sounded like to me.
 
A table on Abortion law – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  spells it out pretty clearly and there are many countries who do not allow abortion on request but they do have exceptions that are certainly civilized enough to take into consideration circumstances and health issues. Abortions by country on wiki is a very good way to understand more about the subject and how it is handled elsewhere.  Italy says yes across the board.  I find this ironic.  
But for the most part there are exceptions and there are considerations.  Another quick search under the words “foreign abortion + bombings” turned up one in Bangladesh.  Pro Life means not killing doctors, nurses and patients
and whatever collateral damage (living things) gets caught in these acts of terror.
There is no Pro-abortion movement and John McCain knew it when he used the term.  Pandering to one segment of society is not equal rights.  It enslaves women.  It encourages and incites riots, killing and acts of domestic terrorism.
Pro-“Life” activists are militant; they put a higher value on some lives than others.  They do what domestic terrorists do – they kill, they maim and they deny every American equality.  Pro-life is not about life – it’s about control and subjugation. When those wing nuts start talking about what to do with all the babies they are insisting on – then I may hear them out.
 
For the record, abortion is not  birth control but, it is a medical decision that should be made first by a woman and her doctor.  Republicans spend more time trying to get into women’s pants than any other bunch I have encountered.   For a party that wants less government they certainly want to set one up in my uterus unilaterally and decides what comes in and what goes out.
Embracing personal choice is voting and worshipping and speaking on terms protected by the Constitution.  Maybe the snake handling, holy rollers and fundamentalists should read the Constitution instead of scripture.   And maybe John McCain should work on keeping his foot out of his mouth.

The Sarah Palin Chronicles – The Final Exam September 11, 2008

The Sarah Palin Chronicles  – The Pop Quiz
 
The worst government is the most moral. One composed of cynics is often very tolerant and humane. But when fanatics are on top there is no limit to oppression.”    Henry Louis Mencken
 
Time’s up – Sarah has dazzled them with her charm, wit and wacky views on reality.  Now it’s time for the Dems to stop the grinnin’ and drop the linen.  Find a way to defuse an out of control reaction to a pure wack job and win the election.  Aren’t you sick of her?  I am and therefore I am hoping to end the SP Chronicles today (if it’s possible) by requesting answers from her to the following questions:
 
If you do not believe in abortion for any reason – how do you propose that women made mothers by force or apathy will support and raise their children with less social programs and no support system in place?  What is your response to a doctor insisting it must be done for the life of the mother or both will die?
 
What do you think has caused Global Warming if not the presence of man and man-made problems.  If you believe that God has done it – why do you think he has chosen now to do it?
 
Do you think that the Middle East War is equivalent to the Crusades?
Why does God want this if the Muslims also believe in one God.
Why do you pray that there is a plan as if you are doubtful?
 
Would you allow anyone’s creationism (basically the religious basis for the presence of man on earth) to be taught in public schools?  There are many different theories in religious belief of the Creation.  Would you be all inclusive and also allow Darwin to be taught. Would you allow Hindu, Islamic, Buddhist, Inuit, Santeria, Voudou and all the others to be explored.  If not, why?
 
How would you feel if you were not allowed to marry the person you loved?
 
What if you had Gay children and they did not “change”?
 
Do you agree with David Brickner that terrorism in Israel is punishment for the Jews?  If so, why?
Where do the Jews fit in your beliefs?
Where do the Catholics fit?
 
Since the “Bible” was written centuries ago in Aramaic and other languages – how do you justify that the words in an English bible are literally the spoken word of God? 
Do you believe in the Rapture?
 
Why does your sect think that this country is a Christian nation?
Who has said this and is in a position of authority to make this a statement not an opinion?
 
Do you think the Founding Fathers were heathens?
 
Do you think that God speaks to you directly?
 
If intelligent design should turn out to be extraterrestrial in origin and not God given – will that be okay with you?
 
Where do you think Polar Bears will live without their necessary environment? How will they thrive and increase their numbers?
 
If we are trying to redeem the earth, why not put our energy into better energy than anyone’s oil?
 
I think these are salient points that she should answer them without a script.
Immediately after they are all answered clearly  I think we should step back and reassess how she fits into the running of this country.  There is still time to make changes and those with courage should be able to decide if changes are in order.
 
Missionary work has shown to be very detrimental to the non-believers who are converted by the “do it or else” method.  Christianity in its extremist incarnations has ruined many fine civilizations and methods of government.  Inasmuch as Christianity – no matter how the believers spin it – is not even monotheistic – we might have done far better with more, rather than less deities.
Whatever you believe, believe this – Sarah Palin is a bad choice for Vice President and she needs to be available to answer my questions and anyone else’s before we all find ourselves rolling on the floor and speaking in tongues.
 
I don’t seem to get any comments on these posts – I welcome them and I would really like to hear comments on this one.

Family Planning is Not Abortion August 19, 2008

The link below and an email alert made me aware of yet another stealth attempt on our civil and individual rights under the current creature and his minions in the White House (and of course, the bunker).  Quietly and in the usual sneaky manner(sound familiar) Human Health Services is attempting to write and pass a rule that equates (as in: makes the same as; as in:  no difference than, as in no matter what your personal needs or choices are and the taxes you paid in) abortion and contraception.  Now just as boldly as the neocons lied and went to Baghdad and Afghanistan and just as blatantly as they lied about Niger + yellow cake uranium – they are  trying sneak to this one into law before the Dark Ages hopefully ends in January 2009.  This is it in a nutshell – I suggest you read the entire article through this link I have posted:
 
Reproductive rights advocates issued a collective condemnation Tuesday of a draft proposal by the Bush administration to set new restrictions on domestic family planning programs. Under the draft proposal, federally funded hospitals and clinics that provide family planning services would be required to promise in writing that they will turn a blind eye to health care providers’ views on abortion and certain kinds of birth control, such as emergency contraception.

The proposed rule defines abortion as “any of the various procedures–including the prescription, dispensing and administration of any drug or the performance of any procedure or any other action–that results in the termination of the life of a human being in utero between conception and natural birth, whether before or after implantatation.It goes on (see link) http://www.womensenews.org/article.cfm?aid=3672

 Now have a look at the number of countries that allow choice to take place.  Third World countries, backward countries, G-8 countries, civilized countries, countries out of control.  I have to lump this country into last three because it is all those things or has been before 2000.

http://www.pregnantpause.org/lex/world02.htm

Is there any doubt in your minds that Mrs. Laura Bush used birth control or that her twin daughters do?  I have no doubt.  But it’s no one’s business.  Have they had abortions – hopefully not – but that’s no one’s business either.  We have idiotic contradictions in our laws that should embarrass us as a country and people, yet they exist and they are still being written.  The attention to sex, pregnancy and birth however ends at the baby itself.  Which is what I intended to write about.  That’s Part 2.   Nonetheless –

We have the ever brilliantly thought out blanket term statutory rape defined this way:

Statutory Rape Is Illegal Sexual Activity Between Two People When It Would Otherwise Be Legal If Not For Their Age: In accordance with the FBI definition, statutory rape is characterized as non-forcible sexual intercourse with a person who is younger than the statutory age of consent.

In other words going all the way with a senior when you’re a junior in high school is a crime and vice versa.  This doesn’t allow for any circumstances that would mitigate such an act.  And there are circumstances that do mitigate it.  And we all know it.

No amount of self-righteous pontificating ever really keeps it from happening.  The archaic term “unwed mother” used to be a designation for knocked up teens who were in loooove.

Shotgun marriage is legal – including the gun in many states – a forcible marriage to legalize the possible statutory rape and remove the stain of “unwed motherdom”.  Is all this getting tiresome?  It goes on and on and on.  Completely neglecting the medical and hormonal facts of adolescence and puberty and the sexual images that are rammed down the throats of kids in general by the media and make “criminal sex” look really really fun.  {This by the way has nothing to do with rape – the criminal act of attacking and forcing a person to submit to sexual intercourse of any kind.}

So why are we all being forced by some tax payers to relinquish our right to choice anyway?  Even Antonin Scalia finds this a problem (he, a Catholic with 9 children). Why are abortion clinics unsafe at any semester and why is my uterus their business? 

Ask the fanatics of the Religious Right.  The Guardian of Heathen souls in danger of Satan. For the record, I don’t think any of these far right religious fanatics and would-be oppressors really care if anyone burns in hell.  Yet they seem to devote more time to hell than they do to the Savior (theirs, not mine) though and without rotten souls to feed the fires they could soon find themselves stuck with what?  You couldn’t have the Rapture without Armageddon and if we all went upward – who then would be to blame for anything.  The Masons,  I guess.  Damn, even the Catholics discontinued Limbo – realizing no doubt how stupid it sounded to anyone with a pulse. The point is that ours is most definitely not a secular government and it’s engine is the Religious Right.  And we all know just how pious and deeply spiritual our politicians particularly when it comes to dipping the old wick.

Our sexual laws are confusing and in some cases Middle Eastern in their scope.  Now they are attempting to lump birth control into law as illegal in terms of federal funds at the very least and when and where does it end?

My advice:

Don’t have an abortion.  Absolutely do not have an abortion if you find the idea horrible.  Don’t do it.  No one is forcing it on any woman who wants to be pregnant under any circumstances.  Choose to have your baby.  Do it.  Rich, poor, young, old – have your child.  That is what the overwhelming majority of Pro-Choice advocates believe.  There are no pro-abortion groups in this country.  Why would anyone want to force a person to have an abortion if she didn’t want it. It’s her choice – which seems, somehow, more reasonable than bombing a clinic and murdering medical personnel to save the unborn.  And in the spirit of accepting personal responsibility for one’s actions – why not allow those women who do regret their choice at some point, to seek consolation in prayer or in a psychiatric office and get on with it. But as wrong and awful as trying to force an abortion on someone – why make that same person act out their woe and anger on an innocent baby because they didn’t want to have a child?

I do not even try to fathom the mentality of these self-righteous selectively violent people who love these babies so much, but I do know that if this rule about abortion and contraception are smuggled onto some other bill or law being written – I will have list of all the countries that do allow choice and I may just move to one of those.  FYI – Canada does and it is a lovely place to visit.

 

Part Two of this post will be later this week. I’m really angry about this one.
