Only Bill. Via.
If you're trying to figure out which of those four -- Fags, Baby-killers, Wetbacks or Rubio is most offensive, let me help. The last one.
Why? Because Marco Rubio is anti-LGBT, anti-abortion and anti-immigration. It's worth repeating. Marco Rubio is anti-LGBT, anti-abortion and anti-immigration.
For a man with his lofty political ambitions, to become the president of the United States, he's tossed away any realistic chance to get his party's nomination with his stance. But that's not the biggest concern.
To be competitive in the Republican Party today -- that's combining the Tea Party faction with the conservatives and the moderates (a silent minority) -- you have to race to the right. Way right. Like off the map, right. You have to out conservative the most extreme elements that the GOP can muster. And therein lies the rub.
What we will see is not the party taking a shift toward common sense and human respect. They will go as hard as they can for regression. They really do want to see Blacks, Hispanics, and Asians "put in their place." Women having babies and not asking any questions. And stopping all immigration, legal or otherwise. They want us armed, uneducated and letting Wall Street and Big Banks have their way. They don't want the rich to be taxed and they don't care to uphold human rights. If you're not straight, there's no place for you here. Homosexuality is to them, a jail-able offense.
HuffPo has this headline:
MARCO RUBIO TO BE KEYNOTE SPEAKER AT ANTI-GAY GROUPS ANNUAL EVENT
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is scheduled to serve as the keynote speaker at the "conservative dinner event of the year": the Florida Family Policy Council’s 8th Annual Policy Awards Dinner on Nov. 16.
The FFPC, a staunchly conservative nonprofit dedicated to promoting anti-gay and pro-life policies, is run by John Stemberger, an outspoken anti-gay activist who supports banning gays from participating in the Boy Scouts.
That's some company Rubio is keeping. And it gets worse. Marco is actually going back against a bill that has his name on it, the senate immigration bill. The junior senator from Florida is accusing Obama of being a liar on keeping your health care plan if you want. Well Marco's no less a liar when he pushes through a bill, votes for it, then pulls his support once it passes.
He strongly opposes all LGBT rights while he supports a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. He doesn't seem to care that the Supreme Court has made rulings which indicate that ain't gonna happen. Just this week Illinois passed a bill to legalize same sex marriage and Hawaii is poised to do so as any day now.
Look at some other issues this Party of No member has recently recently cast support to. He voted to keep the government shut down as well as voting against the Employment non-discrimination act.
So LGBTer's, women, immigrants, Jews, poor, young, old -- if you want or need a champion, this is not your man.
He's setting the bar way to the right and sadly, I fear we're going to see the other GOP candidates tack even further to his starboard side. Watch out America. The racists and haters aren't just coming. They've already arrived.
Ronald Reagan is considered a God by the Republicans. They don’t have a more revered man in their history than the Gipper, or perhaps Lincoln – but today he wouldn't pass the Tea Party sniff test.
Ronnie is their man. Hold yourself up to him if you want to be a leader of the GOP. But don’t trust me with this, trust the entire Jackass party. Take former house foreign relations chairperson, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R- Fl). She’s making the rounds, with multiple visits to that bastion of Republicanocity – Fox TV News.
She, like so many others, rally the GOP and Tea Party troops with reverential recalling of the glory days of the Gipper and friends.
Not surprisingly, Lawrence O’Donnell raised more than an eyebrow at the congresswoman’s Obama attacks by saying our current president doesn't stack up to the stellar record of our 40th president.
Let’s see, Arms for Hostages. Iran-Contra. Eleven tax raises. Jailing the mentally ill. And now we find out Reagan sold chemical agents to Iraq which allowed them to gas their own people.
It’s just too easy to ask, “What is wrong with these Reaganites?” Well, Larry O lays it out pretty well. Maybe this should be the the GOP’s official party film at their 2016 national convention. Take a look at what Republicans find a hero:
By now, everyone who reads the newspapers, watches TV or listens to the radio knows of Bradley Manning. Or at least they did until recently. Bradley was sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking classified documents. But he won't be serving out his time. Instead, Chelsea Bradley, his transgender self, will be doing the time.
Okay, this gets a bit more complicated but hang on. née Bradley, now Chelsea, has requested that she be referred to and treated as a woman. But, interestingly enough, she's going to be doing her time in the men's facility at Fort Leavenworth
Now even in referring to Manning, there should be some kind of rules so that we treat this individual (or is is duo) with respect. And guess what, there are.
The AP's stylebook tells editors and writers to "use the pronoun preferred by the individuals who have acquired the physical characteristics of the opposite sex or present themselves in a way that does not correspond with their sex at birth. If that preference is not expressed, use the pronoun consistent with the way the individuals live publicly."
So, I suspect, based on Manning's request, she's going to be referred to as Chelsea and as a woman.
But why then is she not going into the female prison? Could it be that she hasn't started hormone therapy?
Speaking of which, who's going to be paying for this? If you want some history to go on, there's the case for Michelle Kosilek, an inmate in Massachusetts, who successfully sued but continues to fight for the right for sex-reassignment surgery as prescribed by her prison doctors. Not providing the recommended care for a trans inmate could arguably be considered cruel or unusual punishment.
Interesting precedent. We may be finding ourselves facing a similar situation with Chelsea. We'll just have to see.
So confusion reins supreme in the news these days. But hey, I believe in giving respect to others. If they wish to be known as something other than they are, that's generally their business. We let Rafael 'Ted' Cruz call himself an American as opposed to what he really is, a Canadian-American. He's allowed to live with his choice. I guess that means the former Bradley, now Chelsea, should be allowed to live with hers as well.
I'd like to propose a ban on male masturbation. Make it a federal crime.
No, wait. Hear me out. This is not just a preventative measure but a Christian religious one as well. We can kill two birds with one stone.
The Right Wing religious zealots, the evangelicals, have a good point. Women need regulation when it comes to reproductive rights. And we're making that a reality. But what about men? Every time they pleasure themselves, they're producing and killing potential human life -- each of those ejaculated sperm has the possibility to become tomorrow's president, doctor or even a policeman.
Randomly seeking that moment of pleasure by men is fetality; killing a potential fetus, there's just no two ways about it. Saving those lives comes with a bonus. If we regulate when and how a man can produce those sperm, we can also screen them to make sure none is carrying the dreaded "gay" gene. We just eliminate them before they get a chance to take. Now that we have this sinful, same sex marriage thing to deal with we can force the extinction of that sick, depraved same-sex seeking species by nipping them in the bud, "cleansing" them out before it gets into the womb, infecting God's natural intentions.
The plan is simple. We pass a bill, maybe in the middle of the night so those damn progressives and gay leaning liberals don't tinker with the the Lord's will. We make it illegal for men to have unregulated flow or scientifically speaking (though it sounds dirty to us church folk) ejaculate their semen without a doctor present. The purity of the species will be kept solid as we'll only have a few licensed clinics where this procedure can be provided. And the men can think about what they're going to do during that long drive to the clinic and consider the consequences and their motives.
We'll just simply mandate that when a husband and wife wish to have a child, the man goes to his doctor's office, does his business in front of him/her or their licensed assistants, and then the fluid is examined. If visual materials are necessary to gain "climax", we can make sure they are pure materials, no gay or animal stuff. And we can blur out the dirty, impure images.
Then the fluid is collected and immediately scanned to make sure the gay gene isn't present. If the results are negative, the husband will be allowed to smear the fluid into the woman's private parts with a sterilized Q-tip and if God wills it, they will be blessed nine months later with a child.
Now that's pretty easy, isn't it? We don't want to regulate what goes on in a married couple's bedroom. And with this bill, we won't have to. The doctor's office will be supervised by live witnesses and be recorded on video which they may be mandated to watch prior to the continuation of the procedure. This is to make sure no one cheats and does the "deed" the old fashioned way. Think of the savings on condoms which God frowns upon anyway. No more sinful birth control pills or those heinous U-246 death pills anymore. Women will be relieved of the heavy burden of guilt they're forced to walk around with having come in contact with them before.
I'm not for big government but sometimes it's needed when the masses aren't capable of making the right decisions themselves. This is one of those times. We're making great strides in restricting women's rights state by state. But that may not be enough. It's time we double down and take away men's choice as well. Equal protection under the law. Believe me, men will thank us in good time.
They say men use their little brain to get them in trouble. Let's just make that momentary, pleasure filled moment a regulated action and in no time, abortions will be a thing of the past.
All it takes is making unauthorized masturbation by men illegal. Oh, and while we're at it, seeing as we're already interceding in human relationships, why not regulate and limit legal sexual conduct to being between a man and a woman, married to each other, and it must be limited to procreation purposes. Truthfully, isn't that why God put us on his great planet earth?
There you have it, one bill, one cure. No more dreaded STD's, "unwanted" or unplanned pregnancies. Heck, this bill is so common sense, maybe we can even add a few amendments to it -- restricting voter rights, increase border security and abolish the IRS, all at the same time. Can I get a "Praise Jesus!"
The last few look-a-like postings went over so well, I thought we could enjoy a few Fourth of July smiles while we wait for the fireworks. So away we go:
A Valencia Orange John Boehner
