Republicans Will Let Women Die With NO Help

The Republican Party just continues its dangerous attacks on women. They are the most evil people in politics today…and probably tie with the Medieval Borgia’s of Italy.

“In their latest assault on women’s health, this week House Republicans will take up HR 358, the ironically titled “Protect Life Act.” Opponents have rechristened the measure the Let Women Die bill because it would allow hospitals that receive federal funds to turn away a woman seeking an abortion in ALL circumstances, even if an abortion is necessary to save her life.  See full story here and here”  (My emphasis)

They have no respect for the lives of any women in our world; they are arguably following the Christian Dominionists and Catholic Church thinking in punishing women for having a sex life.  This particular bill gives people the power to kill women who find themselves in dire straits…without recourse.

It is an evil and deadly thing the churches and the Republican Party are trying to do here.  They are slowly building an American Nazi Party where the ‘State’ can sentence you to death and all you’ve done is have sex.

Police Terrorize and Beat ‘Occupy Boston’ Followers

Boston Police terrorize citizens

Well the ‘rich elite 1 percent’ of Boston, Mass has shown the ‘Occupy Boston’ 99 percent who has the real power in that city.

Boston Police Brutally Assault Occupy Boston

“At 1:30 this morning hundreds of police in full riot gear brutally attacked Occupy Boston, which had peacefully gathered on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The Boston Police Department made no distinction between protesters, medics, or legal observers, arresting legal observer Urszula Masny-Latos, who serves as the Executive Director for the Massachusetts branch of the National Lawyers Guild, as well as four medics attempting to care for the injured.”

Notice they made no distinction between anybody there in the area.  This is no doubt so that the word will get out that if you are there in any capacity you stand a good chance of getting your head bashed in…a favorite tactic of the fascist police squads.  You want to protest (which is a legal right by the way), we’ll beat you up and there’s nothing you can do about it

 

Earlier in the day, an estimated ten thousand union members, students, veterans, families, men, and women of all ages marched from the Boston Common to Dewey Square, and then to the North Washington Bridge to demand economic reform on Wall Street and the end of special interest influence in Washington.”

This is a very good cause and the protesters are behaving themselves, as are the spectators, the Medics and legal observers.  The people gathering have lost jobs or pensions or homes and their ability to understand what’s being done to them by the rich”

“Following this massive outpouring of public support, dozens of police vans descended on the Greenway, with batons drawn, assaulting protesters and arresting more than one-hundred people. Members of Veterans for Peace carrying American flags were pushed to the ground and their flags trampled as the police hauled them away.”

The fascist police are even attacking veterans…those people who have fought for our freedoms and sacrificed so much for America…shame on them and shame on the Boston police and shame on the city government who allowed such a terrible and atrocious thing to happen to their own citizens.

“Following the raid, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis made no mention of veterans, organized labor, students, or families, nor did he issue an apology for his department’s aggressive tactics. Since the beginning of its occupation, Occupy Boston has worked tirelessly and successfully to maintain a positive working relationship with city officials. Today’s reprehensible attack by the Boston Police Department against a movement that enjoys the broad support of the American people represents a sad and disturbing shift away from dialogue and towards violent repression.”

They are attempting to squash all our freedoms to protest and to let the government know that WE are unhappy with how predatory corporation (Banks, Wall St. Robber Barons) and government policies are screwing citizens of America.

An Occupy Boston spokesperson says:
“Despite the city’s attempt to silence us, Occupy Boston remains, and bears no ill-will towards the men and women of the Boston Police Department who were simply following orders. We hope that someday the peaceful pursuit of economic justice will not provoke the beating of elderly veterans and the arrest of medics and legal observers. We encourage everyone who continues to feel as strongly as we do about limiting the influence of Wall Street on our democracy to join us tomorrow, and in the future, down in Dewey Square.”

Yeah, well, the Nazi’s used that excuse that they were just following orders when they were terrorizing and killing unarmed and peaceful people didn’t they?
All American government entities, from your local small town police dept. or sheriff to the Department of Defense (DoD) are training their people to follow orders even when it means attacking/killing their neighbors or fellow citizens.  Unlike some government troops in Middle Eastern countries who would not fire on their own citizens, America’s police and military, when ordered, WILL.


“We will occupy. We are the 99 percent and we are no longer silent.”

American citizens should not be afraid of their government…the government should be afraid of the citizens

The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.   Thomas Jefferson

America Down the Tubes Courtesy of Politics

So Tea-Party members/Republicans are cheering Ron Paul and his seemingly deep disregard for Americans who are sick and cannot afford Health Insurance.  I suppose they think that the more poor people that die–the better off they will be.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asks Rep. Ron Paul whether medical care should be provided to a hypothetical, uninsured 30-year-old man who lapsed into a coma, to which Paul responded, “That’s what freedom is all about, taking your own risks.”  Blitzer then asked, “Are you saying that society should just let him die?” audience members erupted into loud cheers of “Yeah!” and laughter.

Coincidentally Tuesday morning the US Census Bureau released data showing the number of uninsured Americans this year has risen by another 900,000 to 49.9 million people (that’s a 13.3 million person rise since 2000). The Census Bureau also reported a huge leap in the poverty rate, more than 46 million Americans, about one in six) lived below the poverty line. Maybe one reason so many people are without health coverage is that health insurance premiums have doubled in nine years (got to pay all those multi-multi-million dollar salaries to the company CEO’s).

According to a study done this year by Harvard Medical School and Cambridge Health Alliance published by the American Journal of Public Health. Nearly 45,000 deaths in the U.S. every year are associated with lack of health insurance.

Also the United States has both the highest overall poverty rate and the highest childhood poverty rate of any major industrialized country on earth, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
While 21.6 percent of American children live in poverty,
In Denmark the rate is 3.7 percent
In Finland the rate is 5.3 percent
In Iceland the rate is 6.7 percent
In Germany the rate is 8.3 percent
In France the rate is 9.3 percent
We are uncomfortably close to 3rd. world Mexico who has 25.8% of its children living in poverty.

All of these bad numbers in the US are arguably caused by our government’s dumb ass practices and policies. We spend TRILLIONS** of dollars on illegal and unnecessary wars, and come to find out that many-many BILLIONS of those dollars are just flat missing and unaccounted for. Meanwhile we are borrowing money from China to pay interest. We continually suck money out of programs for educating our young, from repairing our infrastructure and paving our roads…and yes, for programs that help our poor and indigent.

Government’s main business is to look after the welfare of its citizens, and to provide common services that we as individuals cannot do.  That’s why we CITIZENS band together and make governments…to further the interest of the common folk, for the common good. It is not to enable crooked politicians to consistently (and without consequences) raid the treasury to pay for billionaires’ and monster companies missteps, foreign wars, foreign aid, pork projects, an American Gestapo and unnecessary bridges to nowhere.

We are quickly building a very BIG class of dis-enfranchised citizenry, people who are losing their houses, their income, their health benefits, their ability to care for their family, their dignity, and their patience with a government that does not care and supports only corporations and billionaires.

Don’t fool yourself, these corporations and billionaires don’t care in the least about us, the people…all they care about is getting the peoples labor for the lowest possible wage and no benefits. They are truly and consciously trying to eliminate the American middle class. They send all jobs they possibly can to low labor cost countries and end up ultimately devaluing the citizenry in those countries.  Capitalism is great and all, but as with all things taken to the maximum extreme…crippling.

America cannot stand much more of the evil and unconscionable manipulation and thievery that we are being subjected to by our own government. We need to start making them accountable for their wickedness and VERY badly mistaken priorities.

**It has also been reported in the last two decades that the Department of Defense and the Bureau of Indian Affairs have both “LOST” a TRILLION dollars…they both have no idea in hell where the money went.  Just think, that’s Two Thousand Billion Bucks…no one got in trouble, no one was ever held accountable.  You see, when the government does it…it’s not a crime.  Is that Democracy or is that tyranny?

Obama Trashes Habeas corpus in America

Obama just keeps on trashing the American constitution (something that Bush started) and the Bill of Rights.  Ever heard of “Prolonged detention?”  This is a total trashing of the foundation of Habeas corpus, a concept that is part and parcel of civilized law in every enlightened country in the world.  We might as well be controlled by Nazi’s or Communists.

Is there anything we can do to stop this government from constantly encroaching on our human rights?  Do we even care anymore?

The Religious Right and Republican Party is Out To Kill Women

The Republican Party is out to kill women and/or their reproductive rights

Look out for HR3…a bill just passed by the house that is the most evil piece of legislation ever to exist since our country was created by those looking for liberty from religious control.

“…the bill will force all insurance companies in the country to drop abortion coverage.”  No Abortion for any reason…even if the life of the mother is in jeopardy, or the result of rape or incest.

This is the Republican Party and Christian religious rights agenda at its most evil…that agenda is to deny women any control over their own bodies.  They are taking on the role of the Big-Brother overseer of all women in this country…in sexual matters they will control women and you had better stay out of their way and off their radar or they will kill or destroy you.  This is tantamount to the creation of a “Religious Police” as found in Muslim controlled countries.

I have  made a promise to myself tonight.  I will do everything in my power and to my ability to work to kick out every Republican legislator from office…this is the most evil, immoral, vicious, malevolent, malignant, perverse, ugly, piece-of-shit law EVER to be proposed. It is a slap in the face not only to women, but anyone who values freedom.

“…they are opening a door to denying you the deductions and credits you take if you do things with your own money they don’t like.  Situations like denying mortgage deductions if you use your home for purposes they don’t like, or denying your charity deductions if they don’t approve of the charities, or just taking away your standard deduction if you pay union dues, or denying you the right to claim your children if you spend money on educating them on things like the realities of global warming. The door is wide open here.”

Your Republican thief’s voted in to office this last cycle are really going to screw America royally this time, believe it.

How Much Our Government Lies to Us

“WikiLeaks’ Most Terrifying Revelation: Just How Much Our Government Lies to Us

Wikileaks has shown that our government and military form a ‘vast lying machine’ that perpetrates mass murder in our name.

Do you believe that it is in Americans’ interest to allow a small group of U.S. leaders to unilaterally murder, maim, imprison and/or torture anyone they choose anywhere in the world, without the knowledge let alone oversight of their citizens or the international community? And, despite their proven record of failure to protect America — from Indochina to Iran to Iraq — do you believe they should be permitted to clandestinely expand their war-making without informed public debate? If so, you are betraying the principles upon which America was founded, endangering your nation, and displaying a distinctly “unamerican” subservience to unaccountable authority. But if you oppose autocratic power, you are called to support Wikileaks and others trying to limit U.S. Executive Branch mass murder abroad and failure to protect Americans at home.”  Excerpted from AlterNet

And to think the government wants to prosecute You, if you lie to them.  That is so evil.  Our government has got to the point where it is totally corrupt and non-responsive to Americas many ills.  Since 9-11 our leaders have managed to “lose or misplace” a minimum of a trillion bucks and be the primary cause of up to a million civilian deaths.  We can guess that the trillion+ bucks that “disappeared” has been distributed to cronies of those in power in Washington and into the maws of the International banking system.  From what I hear this “war” on terror we have been fighting in the last 7 0r 8 years has made more millionaires then all the wars that came before combined.

It has sucked money from our country alarmingly quickly.  It has created a cadre of storm troopers and snoopers that infringe/stomp on our constitution on a daily basis.  It has created government agencies that plot together to keep us under their thumbs and always guessing…what’s next.  It has created the perfect war…the one that never goes away and is always sucking up more and more of Our resources.  We will never have peace from this war and one of the main reasons is our Federales can whip up more attacks anytime they want…just kill a few innocent Muslim citizens and tell the crazy Muslims that we pee’d on their Koran.

We as a country have mortgaged our future and sold our soul, following dysfunctional presidents and politicians and a perverted foreign policy and we break into war whenever our presidents get their lies together.  Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia,  Lebanon, Somalia, Panama and Grenada, Iraq and Afghanistan, with offshoot smaller wars now in Somalia (yet again), Yemen, Mauritania and Mali comes to mind.

What I find kind of funny is that Christian fundamentalists practically to a man/woman approve of our war against the Muslims.  God is a god of peace…until the Muslims get involved.

We Americans in particular and the world in general are the most manipulated humans that ever existed.  We let our leaders get away with anything they want and cheer them on when we go to war…how patriotic and loyal we are to liars and manipulators.  Sadly I think America has lost its high place, and it wasn’t the American people that caused it…it was our leaders…the ones getting rich on our blood.

God, Homosexuality…and Nazi’s?

This week, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) released a landmark report on anti-gay defamation. The SPLC certified several new hate groups, including well-known organizations, such as The Family Research Council (FRC) and The American Family Association (AFA).  Here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wayne-besen/hate-groups-waiting-in-th_b_787642.html

Now this article on the November 30th Huffington Post, by author Wayne Besen, reports that last February the Family Research Council’s spokesman Peter Sprigg appearing on MSNBC’s, Hardball with Chris Matthews, and said that we should outlaw gay behavior.

He also reports that Brian Fischer, a spokesman for the American Family Association, said on their blog that, “homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and 6 million dead Jews.”

Now I thought that over the last 20 or 25 years we as a country, and a people, had grown up and passed the point where we were killing or throwing in jail those people who happened to be born or raised in such a manner that they were attracted to people of their own sex.  All the behavioral science seems to point to homosexual behavior as being a trait that people cannot control…in other words its ingrained in their psyche and there is really not much they can do about it.

When you realize that about 5 to 10 percent of the world’s population is homosexual you can see how many humans some of the religious groups are talking about putting to death or in prison…and that’s just unacceptable.  The fundagelicals in America keep denying the obvious truth (of this, and many, many other things) and keep insisting that homosexuality is a conscious choice…that heterosexual people just wake up one day and they are suddenly gay. Once again they are showing how retarded they and their religion is.

Do we really want to live in a world that is controlled by religious revelation?  Much of mankind actually went through this in the European Dark and Middle Ages and the results were not pretty.  Religion has shown over and over again that it is antithetical to intellectual freedom and a life affirming view of humanity if it is in control.  Although today’s Western Christianity is fairly tame and socially useful in our world, it is because secular forces and secular government keep it in its place.  It is not allowed to fully practice what it teaches…although many of today’s politicians are trying to get around this.

All of the religious folk who rail against homosexuality use the verses in Leviticus to show that “God” is dead set against the practice.  What they forget to include is that Leviticus and other parts of the Bible also says that mankind must not shave their beard, mix crops in a field, mix two fabrics together, eat shellfish, curse your mother or father, commit adultery, curse God (blaspheme), work on the Sabbath, they may buy, keep, and pass slaves on to your offspring, and many other things that called for the trespassers death, or at the very least cutting you off from your clan.

Most Christians now realize that these “Laws” from Leviticus are pretty silly and no longer consider most of them to be binding…even though Jesus said that he did not come to change the old “Laws,” but they hang on tenaciously to Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13  They basically want the homosexuals gone…dead as it were.

The quote from Brian Fischer of the American Family Association is just mind-bending.  I don’t even know what the man is talking about. Have you ever heard of anybody tying homosexuality or homosexuals in the military to being a cause of Hitler’s starting the second world war, killing 6 million Jews and being ultimately responsible for over 50 million deaths? This is brainless and evil thinking, and makes no real-world sense at all.

Evangelical fundamentalist (fundagelical) religion seems to be eating the brains of their poor followers…they can’t understand that the world, humanity, and science is leaving them behind…I don’t hold out much hope for them.
