Obama and Putin… “It’s…complicated.”

Posted by Troy on 29th December 2016 in Current Events, Political

So Obama hit Russia with some non-effective, but insulting, sanctions.  In particular, closing a couple of Russian facilities and expelling 35 Russian diplomats is really a slap in the face, diplomatically.  Let’s review…

Obama comes into office thinking that he could improve relations with Russia.  He tells the Russians they can build more nukes while we will not and removes the plans for expanding missile defense in eastern Europe, leaving our allies saying… “What the hell, America?”  He sends Hillary over there with her “Reset” button.  What does that get us?

Russia invades the Crimea.  Russia props up Assad.  Russia conspires with China to undermine the dollar as the world currency.  Russia buzzes our military ships and airplanes, flirting with our airspace.

Does Obama have any real issues so far?  Nope.  Not with the espionage, or anything else.

In 2015, he discovers that Russia is trying to influence our elections.  He sternly tells Vlady:  “Hey…Knock it off.”

Woooo…Vlad was scared!  Big, tough Obama said… “Knock it off.”  OMG… if Vlad disobeys there will be… well, there will be pretty much no consequences because Obama is the weakest, most feckless leader we’ve had in a long while.  Obama said he didn’t want to do anything because he was sure Clinton was going to win anyway…but she didn’t.

Little backstory, Hillary supported the Vlad protesters back when he was running for President–trying to influence THEIR election.  So, this could very well be payback.  Or not.  The RNC had hack attacks too, the same as Podesta…they just weren’t stupid enough to fall for it.  So Russia could have simply wanted to embarrass anyone they could.  Assuming that they are behind it at all, which I’m iffy on, honestly.

But Obama was willing to let it go…as long as Hillary won, because he didn’t want to appear partisan.  I hate to say this, but there’s no way that this man could NOT seem partisan.  At every turn, he has demonized Republicans.  When he won, he basically told them that he won the election and could do whatever he damn well pleased and refused to work with Republicans, preferring to try to demonize and shame them in the media instead.  When he couldn’t get his way, he just started signing executive orders.  His behavior is pretty much the cause of the Democrats losing the Senate, which cost Obama the chance to appoint a 5th, Liberal judge to the Supreme Court.  Now, Trump comes in with majorities in the House and Senate.  Trump will get to appoint the next Justice.  All of those sweet little executive orders are a pen swipe away from oblivion.  Obama is the architect of his own demise.  He has managed to reduce his own reign to a footnote:  “*Obama – the first President of African descent.”  That’s all he will be now.  And he did it to himself with his own arrogance.

So he’s doing what any spoiled child would do when he doesn’t get his way.  He is throwing a temper-tantrum.  He is chastising Israel.  He is destroying records of Muslim refugees which were being monitored.  And he’s hitting up Russia.  Why?  To make sure that Trump has as much going wrong as possible.  Obama will not have anyone outshine him.  He will NOT have Trump come in and just win win win.  Obama said he would take it as a personal insult if people didn’t vote in Hillary…and he meant it.

But the real thing is he is setting a trap for Trump.  If Trump reverses this decision, the media and Obama will say that it’s proof that Trump is a Russian pawn.  If Trump doesn’t, Russian relations will continue to deteriorate, leading to possible war or other strife.

I always knew that Obama’s ego knew no bounds, and the last few months are living proof.  He is willing to subject millions of people to war, death, and hardships just because his pride is hurt.

I look forward to Trump flipping the script and making himself look good and Obama look like the immature amateur he always was.

Long Live the Constitution!

Rigged Election – The Bias Media

Posted by Troy on 17th October 2016 in Current Events, Political

Trump is under fire for saying that election is rigged.  Isn’t it?  Let’s examine the evidence.

1 – During the primary, the establishment loaded up the ticket hoping to split the votes enough where Bush’s money could carry the day.  It failed.

2 – As Trump continued to persist, they were sure that the strategy would work, so they forced him to sign an agreement that he would not run third party.  When he won, those that signed promptly went back on their word.

3 – Hillary and the DNC rigged the election against Bernie.

4 – The media has withheld this tape of Trump until a few weeks before the election in an attempt to destroy him late when they could have destroyed him prior to getting the nomination.

5 – Just look at the difference in coverage between the tape of Trump talking crass vs Hillary’s Wiki-leaks drops.

You see, I’ve heard several men I know (some of them highly respected in society) that have said worse than what Trump said.  And if you are being honest, you know you’ve heard worse from dear friends of yours…man or woman.  If someone followed you around with a camera for years, they could put together a clip show that makes you look pretty bad.  However, no matter what Trump said…hell, even if he DID exactly what he said in the video, it would pale in the comparison of what Bill and Hillary did to women which was rape and destruction.  And where was the media then?  Did they get onto the most powerful man in the world for cheating on his wife and taking advantage of a young intern?  No, they called the intern a fat, ugly, slut.  Pretty much.  Bill’s so coooool.  Monica’s a total skank.  But the Clinton’s are heroes to the Left, and they will be protected.

Meanwhile, in Wiki-Leaks land… Bill Clinton gets a million dollar birthday check from Qatar.  The Clinton Foundations throws away any consideration of the ethics of taking money from foreign donors.  Her staff calls Catholics backwards.  They make fun of “rednecks.”  They pop off at the mouth at this group and that group.  They muse how it would be better if they San Bernardino shooters were white guys killing Muslims.  She calls Bernie supporters a bucket of losers.  She tells Wall Street that she trusts Wall Street to fix Wall Street.  She says that it’s important to lie to the public and do what you want.  She says that there’s no way to vet Syrian refuges while telling us straight to our faces that they can be vetted.  An aide if video taped saying that Hillary plans on enacting gun control via executive order.  Another aide is caught on camera breaking election laws.  The State Department offers the FBI rewards for changing the classification ratings of Hillary’s emails.

But by all means, let’s talk about Trump 24/7.  You know how much time Wiki-Leak reports have gotten between all the major broadcasters?  57 seconds.

Yeah…it’s rigged.  I hope Trump wins.  I hope he wins just so I can see the looks on the faces of Hillary, Hollywood, and the Media.

Long Live the Constitution!

Never Trumpers want to Unbind the Delegates

Posted by Troy on 4th July 2016 in Current Events, Political

I get sick of the Never Trumpers.  Now they want to unbind the delegates to officially steal the election from Trump.  This is pretty much the entire reason why people talk bad about the Electoral College.  Let me be clear, there is no faster way to utterly destroy the Republican Party than what they are doing.  Honestly, I don’t see any use of keeping the Republican Party around anyway.  They have been completely ineffective at either accomplishing their goals (at least any of those that don’t involve spending a crap load of money or taking away rights and freedoms from people) or from slowing down the Democrat agenda (which also seeks to spend a crap load of money and take away rights and freedoms from people).  Basically, what does it matter if we spend ourselves into oblivion on wars or we do it on social programs?  In either case, our country ends up destroyed.  So, what’s the point of the Republican Party?  So what you have is four factions of the Republican Party: Establishment, Conservative, Libertarian, and Populist.  The Establishment and the Conservative branches are annoyed that they didn’t win.  I think the Libertarian section understands that we’re kinda screwed nationally.  Expecting people to be responsible for themselves will never make you popular.  However, the Establishment and Conservatives think that the future belongs to them.  If the Conservative (Ted Cruz) had won, I think Trump voters would have supported him.  If the Establishment started talking about changing rules to get Jeb in, the Cruz-missiles would have blown up in anger!  If Rand Paul had won, I think Trump voters would have supported him as well.  I actually am not sure that Trump supporters would have supported a Jeb Bush.  Perhaps if it came down to Jeb and Hillary, but in no case would the Trump supporters seek to change the rules and steal the election.  Changing rules to get your desired outcome is a feature of Fascist parties (which is ironic since that’s what they say Trump is).  Here’s the thing, more voters voted for Trump than any candidate in Republican Primary history.  The ones that voted for him are enthusiastic to do so.  If the Never Trumpers LITERALLY steal this election from Trump, they will disenfranchise these voters, and those voters are GONE.  The Republican Party will wind up in the ash bin of history.

Long Live the Constitution!

Why I will never vote for Michelle Nunn

Posted by Troy on 22nd October 2014 in Political

The main reason is: I don’t trust her.  Honestly, after the Healthcare passage, I have zero faith in any Democrat.  There were several Democrats that told their constituents that they would not vote for the Healthcare law.  When the party came a-knocking, they sided with the party, not their constituents.  That entire debacle has left the Democrat Party dead to me.  And yes, I have voted for Democrats before.  Never again.  I will either vote Republican or Libertarian (although I still prefer Libertarian Republicans such as Rand Paul to avoid the 3rd party giving power to the Democrats).  In particular, she says that we need to scale back the the budget…of course, we need to use a scalpel, not an axe.  What this always translates to is “No attempt will be made to balance the budget.  No scalpel will be used.  We MAY use an ax on the military to fund our domestic agenda, but that’s the only spending cuts we are interested in.  Don’t worry.  We outspend every other country in the world on military.  It is obvious that we are wasting this money because we already have the best military, so why do we have to spend more than anyone else?”  Of course, this logic completely defies a few facts such as: 1) We have the best military because we have always invested so much into it.  2) We spend more than anyone else because everyone else has gutted their own militaries to pay for their social programs, leaving us as the lone force to hold back the bad players.  3)  “World’s greatest military” is a title that can be easily passed to another country.  4)  There has been RELATIVE world peace due to the fact that America is so strong.  If America was weak, China and Russia would be invading all over the place.  God bless the nuke.

Here is the way Democrats see the world: We need more taxes to pay for more stuff.  People cannot handle themselves.  We need to make things cheaper by taxing people and having the government subsidize food and education and healthcare and everything else.  Of course, when you have a third payer system, all you do is jack up the prices.  Take education.  First, we have turned our primary/high schools into daycare.  It used to be that not all students finished high school.  As such, a high school degree used to mean something.  Now it doesn’t.  Why?  Because we use it as day care to keep hoodlum teens off the street (temporarily anyway).  Even crappy students that cannot read or do basic math somehow get a diploma.  Why?  Because we’ve become a society that awards just showing up.  To the Democrats, education is accomplished as long as the student’s butt is in the seat.  It doesn’t.  Education only happens when the student is motivated from within to learn.  This is something that has to be instilled by parents.  No teacher can teach a student if the student really doesn’t care.  So when a high school diploma means nothing, kids are forced to go to college just to get standard jobs such a receptionist.  This is insanity.  We are making people take calculus and learn philosophy to pick up a damn phone?  Yes, that is insane.  Of course, when when everyone has to go to college just to get any old job, then you have to help the poor afford college.  This means that you have to offer subsidies and scholarships (or loans, but how dare you expect people to actually pay for their own education?).  This allows the schools to jack up tuition.  Go back and look at the charts for tuition rates and for the government programs paying for them.  You will find that pre-government payment plans, tuition costs were reasonable.  Afterwards?  It grew and multiples of the inflation rate.  This is not a co-incidence.  If you want to control tuition costs, the answer is simple: cut core classes and just let people take courses that are pertinent to their degrees.  You could cut the number of classes someone has to pay for by 75% easily.  It also gets them to the job market faster, earns more tax dollars for the government, and frees them for debt.  The Democrat’s solution?  “Student Loan Forgiveness.”  Why?  Basically so that all the stupid college kids will become Democrats.  The only strategy any Democrat has is to buy your vote.  Eventually, the wallet will dry up.  These programs will all fail, and then we will be in bad shape.

That is why I will never vote for Michelle Nunn or any other Democrat.

Long Live the Constitution!

Death of the Tea Party – The Virginia Governor’s Election

Posted by Troy on 6th November 2013 in Uncategorized

Many in the mainstream media are thrilled that the Republican candidate in the governor election for  Virginia was defeated.  They tout that this is clearly a sign of the national rejection of the Tea Party (as the Tea Party endorsed the Republican).  Okay.  First of all, the Democrat did not get more than 50% of the vote.  This means that more people did not want the Democrat than wanted him.  Secondly, about half a percentage point separated the two.  Third, Democrats bankrolled the Libertarian that took about 7% of the vote.  Now, naturally this means the Republican probably would have won as, typically, most people who vote Libertarian are more in line (currently) with Republicans instead of Democrats.  So the verdicts according to Swamp Fox Press?

1)  The Tea Party is alive and well.  Given the amount of outrage by politicians and media types, I would even hazard to say they are doing a good job.  The Green Party is a bunch of wackos.  If they were in charge, things would go to hell in a hand basket quickly.  However, no one takes them seriously.  Why?  Because they’re nuts and they have no power.

2)  The media and politicians will make outrageous claims at any opportunity to try to discredit the Tea Party.

3)  This should end the discussion of third party.  I am a Libertarian at heart, but the only time I vote Libertarian is if I cannot, in good conscience, vote for either candidate (as in the last Georgia governor’s election between Nathan Deal and Roy Barnes).  I believe that the Republican party needs to be broken into three branches: Libertarian or Conservative or Establishment.  This battle should play out in the primaries and the best candidate win.  I believe that the current Democratic party is completely counter to the tenements of the Libertarian Party.  It is impossible to be for a massive socialist system and believe in personal liberty.  The Democratic party has completely embraced socialism (or at least have finally owned up to the fact that they do).  Accepting such a system ties your own private fortunes to that of the government.  When your well-being is dependent upon someone else (even the government’s), then you are no longer free.  Accepting socialism entails higher taxes and a greater degree of government involvement in your life.  There is no way around this.  Also, I believe that an unspoken tenement of Libertarianism is that you can do whatever you want as long as you’re the one paying the cost for it.  That is to say, if you want to smoke, that’s fine, but don’t expect me to pay for your lung cancer treatments.  The Democratic party would say something along the lines of: If you want an abortion, that’s fine, but here…let us pay for it for you.  Now here’s come contraception!  Have fun!

The only though process that does not end in total disaster is that in which you expect people to take personal responsibility for themselves.  This is not to say that you cannot be charitable, but charity comes from the heart and should be awarded to the deserving.  The thing about state “safety nets,” is that they are indiscriminate.  Just by their nature, they must benefit anyone who fits a set criteria.  This means you have to support the deserving and the undeserving.  You have to try to protect the war widow struggling to make ends meet as well as the pothead loser that would rather sit on his ass playing video games all day rather than work.  Personal responsibility stops this, and if you want to use your hard earned money to help the war widow, I applaud your choice.

Long Live the Constitution!

Why Catholics Supporting Obama are Hypocrites

Posted by Troy on 9th November 2012 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Catholics chose to support Obama over Romney in the past election.  This makes them hypocrites, and I shall prove why.

Why do Catholics support Democrats?   Most of them will tell you that it is because the Democrats help the poor, and this is what the church is most interest in doing.  This is, of course, stupidity.  No, that is not what the church is interested in doing.  Technically speaking, the church is interested in “saving” people.  I should imagine that Jesus would say that it is better to be saved and starve than to be fat and burn in the pits of hell for all eternity.  Besides that, I don’t believe that Jesus would think that the government should steal (take our money at the tip of the sword) to perform “good works.”  No, that’s supposed to come from the heart.

The government is not the place to do works of charity anyway.  When a church feeds someone or when a Christian feeds someone, it is likely that that person will see that it is a good religion and will convert and be saved.  What happens when the government feeds someone?  They become dependent on the government.  Without proper supervision and force, that person is much more likely to become a leech.  You don’t feel guilty about stealing from the government or from a big company the way you do when you steal from a church or from an individual person.  Just common knowledge.  The bigger the entity, the more justified you feel in leeching.  So the church is promoting dependence and enslavement to the government which at every turn seeks to destroy all public displays of religion.

Speaking of which, then you have the contraception mandate.  Now, I freely admit that most Catholics are hypocrites on this and use birth control, and I have no problem with that.  However, the church itself thinks it’s a sin.  By refusing to stand up to the government on this, Catholics have basically told the Pope, “Fuck off and buy us birth control, old man!”  Way to go guys!  And for what?  So that someone wouldn’t have to pay out $10 a month for their own birth control?  Skip 2 cups of coffee.  You’re there!  Downgrade your cable or cell phone.  Boom!  You want birth control?  Allocate your funds accordingly.  It’s no one’s obligation to buy it for you if they don’t want to.  You’ve traded religious freedom for $10 a month.  What kind of Judas are you?  At least he got 30 pieces of silver.  With the way Obama’s destroyed the dollar, that’s gotta be worth a LOT more than $10.  Learn to negotiate better.

Then there’s gay marriage.  Look forward to being forced to accept gay marriage.  They could even force you to do it in your church.  They’ve already proven with the birth control they don’t care about your religious beliefs.  Gays have a right to be married, and they have a right to be Catholic, ergo, they have a right to be married in a Catholic church.  Personally, this issue is not important to me in the least, but supposedly Catholics are against it, but as I said, it doesn’t appear that they are against anything too bad.

Finally, there’s abortion.  So you want to help feed the poor?  Over a million abortions a year.  Do you think the government feeding the poor saves over a million lives a year?  You are net killing people by your political affiliations.  The touted number of abortions due to rape and incest?  10,000.  Yep, there ya go.  Facts and figures.

I have nothing more to say to you.  Reconcile your political and religious beliefs.  At least Muslims are consistent.

Long Live the Constitution!

The Election Results

Posted by Troy on 7th November 2012 in Current Events, Political

My hope and faith have been replaced by a grim determination to survive four more years of Fascist rule.

I had hoped that there would be enough enthusiasm on Romney’s side to carry him, but apparently the 47% Romney talked about was just as enthusiastic to defend their right to free stuff.  By the way, that whole 53/47% thing was a reaction to the 99/1% thing at the time.  Remember, context matters.  53% of people pay income taxes, the others are takers on the other side.  Again, imagine you offered to buy your friends lunch.  You were going to buy them a burger from McDonalds, but they take a vote and you have to take them to Ruth Chris instead.  Does that sound logical to you?  Why are the people who aren’t paying for the lunch getting a say in the lunch?  That’s what we have done, and now we are paying the price.  Gee, I wonder if the leeches will say, “No, I’ve have enough,” or if they will saw, “Why does my Obamaphone only come with 100 minutes per month?  That guy has an unlimited plan, I should too!”

His re-election defies logic.  He started his Presidency with 80% approval.  Over four years, that has been a steady slide to 50%.  Gee, I wonder if we can use trend analysis to figure out how the next four years will work out for us!  Unemployment is pretty much flat.  Regardless of the lip service, experts predict that it will actually go back up to about 9% for 2013.  Great.  GDP is growing at about 2%, which is pathetic.  He’s already proven that he will not work with Republicans.  Mitt was going to do what he said he would…because there is proof that he can work with people from the other party!  Obama will not do so.  To Obama, the fiscal cliff and debt downgrades and other catastrophes are bargaining chips to get exactly what he wants.  ”Do it my way, or the country will be destroyed, and I will blame you.”  There is no give and take, and this is the time when we actually need some give and take.

The Middle East is burning, but who cares, honestly?  Screw the Middle East when the Constitution is burning.  He lied more than Nixon, but he’ll never be impeached.  Even trying to impeach this Fascist will get you labeled a racist and the Senate wouldn’t convict him if they discovered a tape of him having sex with a 14 year old.  If R. Kelly could get away with it, why not Obama, right?  We have no standards these days.  We’ve tripled the money supply.  As a result, gas and food prices are soaring, but that’s not inflation.  There’s no correlation between prices and money supply these days.  It won’t get worse now that we are going to try indefinite printing of money.  That won’t affect our debt rating.  That won’t prevent people from buying our debt knowing that we are going to repay their $1 of debt with $.75.  I guess that won’t matter.  As long as we have free birth control.  God, how horrible would it be to live in a country where you have to buy your own $9 a month birth control.  Praise Obama!  Pa-Raise him!  He has saved us from having to take care of ourselves and support our own lifestyles.  Pa-Raise him.

He had 50% approval when he actually cared what you people thought about him.  Now, he’s free and clear.  Now comes the fun part of his reign.  Watch for Executive Orders to set right the evils of this country.  Remember, both he and Michelle were members of the “We Hate America” crowd in college.  Do you really think they’ve changed that much?  He wanted flexibility with Russia, he got it.  UN treaties with the force of law?  You got it!  Giving away our sovereignty to a global government?  You got it!  When Obamacare hits in 2014, all the bad stuff that he postponed until after his election, look for businesses to fail while we already have 9% unemployment causing a chain reaction which devastates us.  Watch for the stock market to tank after he does away with the “unfair” capital gains rate.  Come and talk to me after 2014 about this would be savior.  Come talk to me when China will not lend us any more money and he has to take away your Obamaphone.

The great reset is coming.  Get some guns and ammo to deal with looters and rioters when they have to shut down the socialist machine.  Three to six months of rice and beans for the adjustment period when the reset button is hit, and pray that we emerge under the Constitution and not under the tyranny of a totalitarian government.  Read 2084, the Search for Love, Hope, and Faith.

Long Live the Constitution!

Bill Clinton’s lament

Posted by Troy on 5th November 2012 in Current Events, Political

Some people are accrediting Obama’s impending victory on Clinton’s endorsement.  These are the reasons why Bill Clinton will end up regretting his support of Barrack Obama should he win a second term:

1)  I don’t really think that Clinton likes Obama.  I don’t he’s liked him since 2008.  I think that he knows Obama is inept and is as dirty a politician as any other.  ie, he’ll lie or do whatever it takes to make what he wants happen.

2)  Four more years of Obama will leave this country destroyed.  There is no way that Hillary will ever have a shot at being President as people will blame the massive destruction at Obama’s feet.  He will be unable to blame it on Bush after 8 years, particularly in 2014 when provisions of the Health Care Act destroy the economy.

3)  Even if that was not true, the truth about Libya will come out.  Given Hillary’s “my bad” speech where she took full responsibility, she will never be trusted as Commander in Chief.  She couldn’t even handle the security of an embassy.  Do you think they will give her control of the armed forces?

4)  Obama is no Bill Clinton.  God bless him.  All Bill wanted to do was have sex with interns and be beloved.  As such, he moved to the center, and the House Republicans gave him balanced budgets and welfare reform.  Obama will never do that.

5)  Bill is ruining his own legacy.  Hear me out:  he is making a liar of himself (okay, that’s an easy job for him, but still!).  There is no way Obama will do anything like he suggests.  Obama will never reduce the deficit.  His policies will not improve the economy.  He will never bring us together.  Things will fall apart.

Hillary’s shot may all be dead already.  However, if Obama is re-elected, her fate is sealed.

Long Live the Constitution!

Sandy attacks the northeast

Posted by Troy on 31st October 2012 in Political

A lot of people are asking: How is this going to affect the election?

I think that it is difficult for a President to get a boost from handling a storm correctly.  Now, blundering it might hurt them, but doing the baseline of whatever it is they are supposed to do probably won’t help them.  I just don’t see people seeing the Federal government as their salvation.  Also, most of the states affected are going to vote for Obama regardless.

I would like to point out: Romney was criticized for politicizing Libya.  However, the media cheers when Obama politicizes a natural disaster!

For those who say: how dare you!  The President is helping those in need!  Okay… where was he when the entire state of Texas was burning?  Where was he when Memphis was underwater?  He didn’t seem to care.  Was it because those states are “Red States?”  Or does it have to be closer to an election for him to give a damn?

The President is doing nothing about this storm.  If he was put in charge of the relief effort, this thing would be a mess like you would not believe.  No, the head of FEMA and the Red Cross, and others are doing the relief efforts.  All Obama has done is shown up for photo ops and to take up valuable time from people actually doing work so that he can get said photo ops.  Meanwhile, when Americans were dying in Libya, he was no where to be found.  He IS Commander in Chief!  That is an actual duty of his.  Where was he?  Now they say that Obama didn’t order the stand down.  Their story is so convoluted that it cannot be believed.  So which option do you like?

1)  Obama knew nothing and the state department blew it.  Great, so a Commander and Chief that doesn’t know what’s going on?

2)  Obama knew of the attack, but thought it was a protest.  Wait, they said they knew it was a terrorist attack.

3)  Obama knew of the attack but didn’t order help.  So you have the balls to order a strike into an “ally” country to kill bin Laden but not to save our people?

4)  Obama ordered the rescue effort, but the order was cancelled.  This would be a lie unless Obama fires the person that gave that order.  The fired person would immediately turn and rat Obama out, so he can’t do that.

5)  Obama ordered the stand down.  Not good, and he just lied and said that he didn’t order it.

Notice, there are no “win” positions for the man!

Long Live the Constitution!

War on Women

Posted by Troy on 26th September 2012 in Current Events, Political

Every time I hear the phrase “the war on women,” I have an instant thought: “Brainwashed Zombies.”

If there’s an actual war, you know it.  You don’t need Sandra Fluke out there telling you that Germany is at war with Poland in WWII.  Even metaphorically, you don’t need someone to tell it to you when you’re really being oppressed.  Again, you know it.  The blacks knew it during Jim Crow.  Some may have tried to live around it as best they could without raising a fuss, but they knew that it was  wrong.  So let’s just call the “War on Women” what it is: propaganda.

If someone says that to you ask, what constitutes a war on women?  They will probably tell you two things: they want abortion illegalized, and they want to do away with contraception.

The first, I cannot really deny.  Many on the Right would like to see abortion abolished.  However, this has nothing to do with what feminists would tell you.  Ask a feminist why the Right wants abortion illegalized, and the feminist would tell you that it is a mechanism to control women (same with birth control).  It is not.  It is completely a belief that life begins at conception.  If you believe this, then you have to think that abortion is immoral.  It’s that simple.  If you don’t believe that, then it’s merely a choice.  However, pro-choicers wish to have their cake and eat it too.  You see, if it really is a choice, then fathers of illegitimate children should be able to sue to force an abortion or, if the woman CHOOSES to continue the pregnancy, well, that’s HER choice.  As such, all the cost should fall on her.  Regardless of anyone’s desires on the Right, as long as Roe v Wade is the law of the land, there is no reason to worry about this.

The second is just silly.  No one wants to make contraception illegal.  No one wants to take it away.  The Right doesn’t want to force Catholics (and others) to provide medical services that disagree with their religion.  That’s all.  Adam Corolla said that “I love beer, but just because other people aren’t forced to buy my beer for me doesn’t mean I don’t have access.  It’s on me to provide that for myself.”  Paraphrasing there.  If you can’t afford birth control, cut out the data plan on your smart phone.  If that doesn’t work.  Go to the free clinic.  If that doesn’t work, tell your boyfriend or husband to provide birth control or else there is no sex.  You will be amazed at how fast he can provide it for you.  They might even go out and get a job.

Open a dialog.  Most of these poor fools don’t know they’re being used.

Long Live the Constitution!
