Females Aborting the tea party

By: SayNoToTea , 6:38 PM GMT on March 29, 2012

i’ve been professionally involved in politics for over 20 years and the stench coming from our so-called leaders on the right this year is the worst in my lifetime. middle aged white men daring to pretend that only they know what god wants are hell bent on inserting themselves into the beds, bodies and personal lives of every living american. the latest victims of their moral hypocrisy are your wives and daughters. women are fed up with the republican taliban and are seeking a divorce. their children are crying “please mommy, make the bad men stop!”

if teabag nation doesn’t like being accused of waging a war on women maybe they should stop proposing, and sometimes passing some of the most oppressive legislation since the inquisition. the good news is that they are sowing the seeds of their own destruction, if democrats can find their butts with both hands long enough to run even a half-baked campaign highlighting some of the most sexually fascist legislation ever conceived, no pun intended.

as i always tell you dear readers, don’t just take my word for it. even fox news has acknowledged the republican war on women and their anti-woman vagenda: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/03/15/yes-ther e-is-republican-war-on-women-voters/

but fox doesn’t stop there: the latest fox news presidential poll conducted march 14th and with a margin of error of only 3% shows that republicans are going down in flames against obama, and the main reason is that women are fed up with the republicans in droves.

the poll reveals that regardless of which of the three-headed gop sexmonster romney/santorum/gingrich faces the president, because of the national republican insanity regarding womens health, obama now has been handed, on a silver platter, a solid 20% lead among women voters.

but don’t give the teabag-evangelical candidates for panderer-in-chief all the credit. the butt-kissing for the evangelical fringe vote is reflected at the state level as well as in d.c.

it’s morning sickness again in america. they’ve gone way beyond being merely anti-choice in their revised bible.

every item i’m about to mention is absolutely true. i say this in advance because you might be inclined to not believe how just how depraved and indifferent to womens’ health and rights these guys have blatantly become:

-the republican governor of pennsylvania has advised women to “just close your eyes” when forced to have state mandated intrusive ultrasound exams against their will.

-in georgia, a teabag lawmaker wants to officially remove the word “victim” from rape victim reports. seems being raped once isn’t enough, he wants them humiliated a second time when they have the courage to come forward.

-teabag evangelical congressman have forwarded a bill that would let hospitals refuse on moral grounds to save a rape victim’s life rather than perform an abortion necessary save her.

-more teabag congressmen in d.c. propose cutting a billion dollars in pre-school funding: their defense, on the record, has been that the mothers should be at home taking care of their kids instead of working and enrolling them in preschools.

-and while the gop offers bills to eliminate funds for family planning, republican dan burton has offered a bill to provide CONTRACEPTION…FOR HORSES.

congratulations, women. in teabag evangelical heaven, livestock now have more rights than you.

the nuts have learned nothing from rush limbaugh’s humiliating self-immolation, calling women who use contraception ‘whores’ and ‘sluts’. they’ve learned nothing from the outcry against and crippling of the komen cancer foundation after teabag infiltrators succeeded in politicizing what had been an organization more concerned with womens’ health than a religious/political agenda. they’re having their fun now, but this fall they will pay the price for their arrogance.

meanwhile, i do love the creativity of women fighting back against such monumental ignorance. they’ve shown resourcefulness and imagination that men could never conceive. not that men could ever conceive under any circumstances.

case in point: after texas governor and teabag/evangelical presidential flameout rick perry championed a new state law forcing draconian changes in women’s reproductive health care, just the other day women flooded his facebook page with hundreds and hundreds of posts asking him for his professional opinion on womens’ menstrual issues!

even though perry’s staff…no pun intended for the third time in this article...repeatedly removed the entries and eventually closed down the page for a time, someone did capture one set of the postings and they are really bitingly funny and scathing, while making a serious point at the same time. if you are so inclined feel free to check them out here:

http://www.buzzfeed.com/lyapalater/rick-perrys-fa cebook-gets-bombarded-by-menstruati

so, until election day, what’s left is for us to express our “condomnation” of their attempts at banned parenthood, oppose gingrich’s next unnatural defense of multiple-marriage act, and when someone tries to do an invasive ultrasound to show their power over a women’s health care options, just kick that probe-ation officer in the family jewels and tell him that their attempts at sexual demagoguery and hypocrisy leave a vitter taste in your mouth.

puns intended.

Link US Exports At Record Levels Putting GOP Campaign Strategy On Life Support.Since President Obama took office in 2009, exports to China have jumped almost 25% to just short of $104 billion. This is an indisputable sign that the economy is not only getting stronger but doing so in a sustainable fashion not reliant on a bubble. Since the GOP’s entire campaign strategy so far has been based on Obama’s supposed economic incompetence, this is terrible news for Mitt Romney. But great news for America. Such is the conundrum of modern-day Republican politics.

Any economist will tell you that exports are the lifeblood of a growing economy and that a trade imbalance is unhealthy in the long run. Of particular note has been our imbalance with China; we import hundreds of billions of dollars of product (446.65 bl last year alone) but until 2001, when China entered the WTO, the United States made very little headway in reducing that discrepancy. Of greater note is the fact that, after the recession, when the Obama administration’s “anti-business” policies began to take effect, our domestic manufacturing increased dramatically and the trade imbalance narrowed more than at any previous point in the last twenty years.

Link Rep. Joe Walsh on Tammy Duckworth's service: 'Ehhh'.There are certain members of Congress that you can reliably count on as being miserable excuses for human beings, people who seem to have no lower bounds when it comes to saying rotten things or supporting legislative "ideas" ranging anywhere from asinine to outright cruel. Congressman Joe Walsh (R-Deadbeat Dad) is one of those.
The latest example comes from Politico, where things Joe Walsh willingly and apparently not-at-all-drunkenly said to interviewer David Catanese are coming back to bite him, as they very well should:

Sitting inside a coffee shop during a recent 30-minute interview, Walsh had several of his trademark characteristics on display: a feverish intensity, an embrace of rhetorical combat and unfettered criticism of his opponent, who lost both of her legs and part of her right arm in 2004 after her helicopter was struck by a rocket-propelled grenade.
“I have so much respect for what she did in the fact that she sacrificed her body for this country,” said Walsh, simultaneously lowering his voice as he leaned forward before pausing for dramatic effect. “Ehhh. Now let’s move on.”

“What else has she done? Female, wounded veteran … ehhh,” he continued. “She is nothing more than a handpicked Washington bureaucrat. David Axelrod, Rahm Emanuel just picked her up and dropped her into this district.”

Really? That's his attack against Democrat Tammy Duckworth? Sure, you lost two legs and part of your arm while serving in Iraq, but what have you done for me lately? Wow. Screw you, guy.
Walsh is already walking it back, clearly recognizing that he stepped in it on this one. After Chicago blogger Carol Felsenthal bashed him roundly for his statements, Walsh called her to, er, clarify his remarks:

Asked if he regretted saying that Axelrod and Emanuel “just picked [Tammy Duckworth] up and dropped her into this district,” Walsh admitted he would phrase it differently if he had a do-over. “I often catch myself when I’m talking. I meant something other than how it came out.”
“Because I never served,” Walsh explained, “I have an unbelievable amount of awe and respect for everybody who wore the uniform.”

Well, that's not the part that I personally found most offensive, but what the hell, at least he's trying. Sort of. Maybe. When he's called out on it.

Supremes Won't Save GOP From Itself on Obamacare
by David Frum Mar 27, 2012 10:00 PM EDT

All or nothing.

That has been the dominant Republican approach to Obamacare from the start, and it is the dominant Republican approach today.

In Congress, this approach led to the result: "Nothing."

Now conservative challengers are hoping the Supreme Court will step in. And who knows? Maybe the justices are feeling bold. Maybe they are ready to expose themselves again to the fiercest partisan criticism since Bush v. Gore, or even fiercer.

I'm not a Court-watcher, and have no expertise to offer, but just going with my gut: I doubt it. Even though the Solicitor General reportedly choked today, that doesn't change the fact that the conservatives on the Court have spent most of their intellectual lives railing against judicial activism.

Here for example is Justice Antonin Scalia writing in dissent in the Virginia Military Institute case of 1996:

The virtue of a democratic system with a First Amendment is that it readily enables the people, over time, to be persuaded that what they took for granted is not so, and to change their laws accordingly. That system is destroyed if the smug assurances of each age are removed from the democratic process and written into the Constitution. So to counterbalance the Court's criticism of our ancestors, let me say a word in their praise: they left us free to change. The same cannot be said of this most illiberal Court, which has embarked on a course of inscribing one after another of the current preferences of the society (and in some cases only the counter-majoritarian preferences of the society's law-trained elite) into our Basic Law. Today it enshrines the notion that no substantial educational value is to be served by an all-men's military academy--so that the decision by the people of Virginia to maintain such an institution denies equal protection to women who cannot attend that institution but can attend others. Since it is entirely clear that the Constitution of the United States--the old one--takes no sides in this educational debate, I dissent.

If you have said over and over again, in writing, that you object to judges writing their policy preference into the Constitution, you have to wince a little at the invitation to write your own.

Especially when the principle on which you are invited to reverse yourself—the distinction between economic "activity" and "inactivity"—is likely to be the laugh of the law schools over the next 100 years.

My uninformed guess: the ACA prevails, and probably not by a narrow margin.

What then?

What then is that healthcare comes roaring back as a campaign issue, to which Republicans have failed to provide themselves an answer. Because of the prolonged economic downturn, more Americans than ever have lost—or are at risk of losing—their health coverage. Many of them will be voting in November. What do Republicans have to say to them?

Make no mistake: If Republicans lose in the Supreme Court, they'll need an answer. "Repeal" may excite a Republican primary electorate that doesn't need to worry about health insurance because it's overwhelmingly over 65 and happily enjoying its government-mandated and taxpayer-subsidized single-payer Medicare system. But the general-election electorate doesn't have the benefit of government medicine. It relies on the collapsing system of employer-directed care. It's frightened, and it wants answers.

"Unconstitutional" was an answer of a kind. But if the ACA is not rejected as "unconstitutional," the question will resurface: if you guys don't want this, want do you want instead?

In that case, Republicans will need a Plan B. Unfortunately, they wasted the past three years that might have developed one. If the Supreme Court doesn't rescue them from themselves, they'll be heading into this election season arguing, in effect, Our plan is to take away the government-mandated insurance of millions of people under age 65, and replace it with nothing. And we're doing this so as to better protect the government-mandated insurance of people over 65—until we begin to phase out that insurance, too, for everybody now under 55.

That's a different version of "all or nothing"—and one that invites the voters to answer: "nothing."

In 2006, Mitt Romney did the heavy lifting to prepare Republicans for this moment. He readied himself to fight an election as a Republican presidential candidate who not only accepted the ideal of universal coverage, but who had actually delivered it. That would have been quite a story to tell. Had things gone slightly differently in 2008, it might right now fall to President Romney's Solicitor General Paul Clement to explain to a sympathetic Supreme Court why the mandates in Romneycare in fact are constitutional.

Such a Romney-appointed Solicitor General would have pointed to the array of things the federal government can unquestionably command people to do—including conscript them into combat and tax 98% of their earnings—that are vastly more onerous (and vastly less beneficial to the individual) than buy health insurance. Such a Solicitor General would have noted that it's absurd to describe as "inactivity" the actual experience of most uninsured Americans: desperately seeking an affordable policy and poignantly discovering that they cannot find it. Such a Solicitor General might even have cited the Supreme Court's own precedents, including the touchstone case NAACP v. Claiborne Hardware, that held that the decision not to buy something was not only an "activity," but even more: an expressive activity protected by the First Amendment!

Such a policy and such a line of reasoning would be something. And it's a solid rule of politics that you can't beat something with nothing.
