Hello faithful readers! I was going to do a movie review…but there’s been way to much going on. Enter: Political Rant 2. I apologize ahead of time. A lot of things have been said and done over the past few weeks, and as the election draws closer, it seems some people have gone off the deep end. You can imagine who these people could be…
What has one of the major topics been over the past few weeks? The economy? Nope. The wars in the Middle East? Nope again…Tagg Romney’s gross rapist eyes and face? Close. Rape. Abortion. Religious Right. Come on America.
I see these stuffed shirt, white men go on stage and make ridiculous claims about rape. Let’s take a look at some of these now viral quotes these morons have said.
Richard Mourdock: “I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God,” Mourdock said. “And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” - CBS News
Todd Akin: “legitimate rape, the female body has ways” to prevent pregnancy. - Gawker.com
These are just a few. I could write a book on stupid Republican quotes, but that’s not why I’m here. First, I want to point out how incredibly wrong all of these statements are. However, anyone with half a brain and a high school health class under their belt could point that out. Second, why is this even being brought up? Better yet, why are these people in positions of power that allow them to make decisions about female bodies? Is this a third world country? 1692? The Matrix? Why in God’s name do they think this is okay? I grew up Catholic, and as many of you know who have read my past blogs, I have studied religion. No where have I seen in the Bible where God says “Thou shalt keep thy rape baby if thy gets raped, intentionally or not” It must be there right next to “Thou shalt not feed the poor, protect thy planet for whilst I have bestowed upon you, for that is Socialism, and Socialism is the devil’s work.” What is unintentional rape anyway??? If these backwoods morons actually read the Bible, their ideals they hold firm to would be thrown out the window. You do know Jesus was a brown skinned socialist who offered free healthcare to the poor, right? RIGHT? Seven people reading this just called me a communist.
Which brings me to another point. I was at the gym the other day, and to get fired up, I enjoy watching Fox’s “The Five” because I work out harder while pissed off. The morons used the word Socialist and Communist over ten times in fifteen minutes. I hear these words being thrown around by my right wing friends. My favorite thing to do is ask them what this means. Not once have I gotten a straight answer. Let’s go to dictionary.com shall we?
so·cial·ism[soh-shuh-liz-uhm] Show IPA
Hmm…that doesn’t sound evil. I’m pretty sure no one died from that. No countries were ever lit on fire and dropped into the pits of hell for helping their fellow man…have they? Let’s keep going…
com·mu·nism[kom-yuh-niz-uhm] Show IPA
Looks good on paper, right? That’s what the Soviets thought too…then they remembered they were human. The majority would all love to live in a truly Communist society. Everyone gets their fair share! People help each other! Egalitarianism! It worked for thousands of years with Native American societies! Again, we’re human. I don’t see anything in Obamacare that causes any of these things. God forbid poor people get the healthcare they need. God forbid crooked insurance companies aren’t able to deny preexisting conditions. God? God forbid huh? Show me where God says anything about denying your fellow man what is best for him. Show me where he says to let your fellow human being die because you can’t stand the government spending an extra buck. Keep throwing that 2 million dollars at the military though. We can kill our way out of war and disease! GOD BLESS ‘MERICA!!
DIABEETUS TOOK MAH JEEERRBBBSSS
I got off topic. ::Sigh:: I always do this. I was going to stick to the rape quotes. I swear I was. It’s infuriating. 2012. That is the year we are living in, and people are denied basic rights and healthcare in “the greatest country in the world”. People look at this election as the end all, give all. Whoever is elected will shape this country. We will either go forward, or back to the 1600’s. Not true, kiddies. Here’s what you should be focusing on. The Senate. Right here in Mass, we are having a doozy of a battle between Elizabeth Warren (D) and Scott Brown (R). A democrat controlled house can block a Republican Agenda…and vice versa. For ANYTHING to happen going forward, be it good for bad, we need unity. We can’t have what we have today. We can’t have these whack job tea partiers blaring their horns and blocking everything Obama has done. Do you know how much legislature they have blocked that he has put forward? Here’s One. Another. More? Why Not? Anything to make the American public pay for electing a Kenyan born socialist. Am I right? Donald Trump thinks so. He wagered 5 million dollars against it, giving Obama the impossible act of gathering personal documents that take months to obtain in one week. Have you ever tried to obtain a college transcript? It’s hell. Not only did he make the right wing idiots of this country believe Obama was withholding more documents proving HE IS A FUCKING LEGAL CITIZEN YOU TOOTHLESS BACK YOKEL INBRED HICK! He also hung 5 million dollars over a charity over President Obama’s choosing.
“Sorry little Johnny, but your cancer treatment can’t be completed because we ran out of money…if the President wasn’t an illegal immigrant…we could have paid for it.”
Ok, I’m almost done, I swear. Infuriating. You want to know what my beliefs on rape are? Who should be able to get an abortion if they wanted one? It doesn’t matter, because I’m a goddamn dude. I don’t get a say. Neither do you Todd Akin, Paul Ryan, Govnah R-Money. None of you do. Land of the FREE assholes. Concentrate on what matters. Helping people get back to work, making this country sustainable, protecting the environment. All of those things are what people want. I said it many times, and I’ll keep saying it. The Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves.
They’re Going to Eat Yooouurrr Baaaaiiiinnnn!!!
In conclusion, for anyone who has kept reading this (and for that I thank you), come voting day, go out and vote. Chances are, if you’re still reading this, you agree with me, and your vote counts. So many important races are tied up, 50/50, and every one of us counts. Every candidate has their flaws, as they are only human. Some of them I swear are verging on half demon, half human beasts, but they are still human. We need to put aside out social differences and concentrate on what is best for the people of this country. Do your part, get out there, vote. Vote early if you can. Because come time, each one of you reading this will be the reason we have four more years of progress, or four years of what could end in war, more struggling, and a greater distancing from the rest of the world. Do you really want someone like Romney in power? The man was laughed at across the world. Sarah Palin style. This can’t go on anymore. Make a difference. You had Hope once…keep believing for a little bit longer.
