The so-called “pro-life” movement’s philosophy.

One of the best political cartoons that I’ve seen. 

You know what pisses me off about this?  Really, REALLY pisses me off?  That’s George (H.W.) Bush holding that umbrella.  He was president 1981-1989.  Do you get that?  
It means that the right have not budged an inch on their ridiculous pro-foetus, anti-actual-persons position in THIRTY GODDAMN YEARS. We should not still be having this argument! Thirty year old political cartoons should be bafflingly opaque, not crystal clear!

^ Reblogging again for that comment.

Agreed.

We missed the press release from Trump, Palin, and Hoekstra demanding Romney come clean with his long-form birth certificate. Maybe they sent it to the wrong address? I’d just hate to think that this four-year-long muckraking quest for more documentation of the President’s place of birth was all just a cynical race-baiting ploy or something. — Mitt Romney released his birth certificate yesterday, in advance of his summit with Donald Trump. We sort of felt like that warranted a rant. (via motherjones)

Gibbs: Romney’s Message Is ‘You Didn’t Clean Up Our Mess Fast Enough’
~~~
Top Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs said on Meet the Press Sunday that the “biggest idea” of Obama’s reelection campaign would be a message of continuing “moving in the right direction of fixing this economy.” 
“We know this about Mitt Romney,” Gibbs said, “he’s not a job creator. When he was governor of Massachusetts, they were 47th out of 50 in job creation. His experiences in downsizing and outsourcing jobs and bankrupting companies and walking away with a lot of money for himself. His economic ideas are the failed economic ideas that we tried for eight years.”
Gibbs responded to another question about women voters and the economy, saying, “David, their message is: You didn’t clean up our mess fast enough.”

A fun visual representation of how unbelievably pointless and wasteful Florida’s drug testing law is. Not pictured: the fact that that $178 million dollars went to a company owned by the governor’s wife.

But, but that would be a conflict of interest! From a Republican!

A pro-choice Democratic legislator has taken a novel approach to fighting an Oklahoma “personhood” bill. - adds ‘Every sperm is sacred’ clause

abaldwin360:

State Senator Constance Johnson of Oklahoma City has introduced a measure that calls to mind the famous Monty Python “Every Sperm is Sacred” sketch from the 1983 film “The Meaning of Life.”

The concept of “personhood” defines human life as beginning at the moment of conception and, in the case of Oklahoma’s pending Senate Bill 1433, says that the resulting fetus “at every stage of development (has) all the rights, privileges, and immunities available to other persons, citizens, and residents of this state.” If Senate Bill 1433 were to become law, all forms of abortion and some forms of contraception would be considered murder and therefore illegal.

Sen. Johnson, who represents Oklahoma’s 48th District has introduced an amendment to the bill mandating that the same rights and benefits be granted to spermatozoa, writing, “However, any action in which a man ejaculates or otherwise deposits semen anywhere but in a woman’s vagina shall be interpreted and construed as an action against an unborn child.”

A second legislator, Democrat Jim Wilson attempted to introduce an amendment stating that all men would be responsible for the full support and well-being of any woman carrying their child for the duration of the pregnancy, including housing, food, transportation, and all medical costs. The amendment failed.

Now, that second amendment failing is very illuminating and points out that this isn’t about the life of the child or taking responsibly for the consequences of sex. It’s all about limiting the sexual freedom of anyone who isn’t a male.

It’s more high level slut shaming.

“Koch Brothers, Allies Pledge $100 Million At Private Meeting”

Koch Brothers, Allies Pledge $100 Million At Private Meeting To Beat Obama

Nobody is surprised by this.

Drawing on a sample size of several thousand, correcting for both education and socioeconomic status, the new study looks embarrassingly robust. Importantly, it shows that prejudice tends not to arise directly from low intelligence but from the conservative ideologies to which people of low intelligence are drawn. Conservative ideology is the “critical pathway” from low intelligence to racism. Those with low cognitive abilities are attracted to “rightwing ideologies that promote coherence and order” and “emphasise the maintenance of the status quo”. Even for someone not yet renowned for liberal reticence, this feels hard to write.

This is not to suggest that all conservatives are stupid. There are some very clever people in government, advising politicians, running thinktanks and writing for newspapers, who have acquired power and influence by promoting rightwing ideologies.

But what we now see among their parties – however intelligent their guiding spirits may be – is the abandonment of any pretence of high-minded conservatism. On both sides of the Atlantic, conservative strategists have discovered that there is no pool so shallow that several million people won’t drown in it. Whether they are promoting the idea that Barack Obama was not born in the US, that man-made climate change is an eco-fascist-communist-anarchist conspiracy, or that the deficit results from the greed of the poor, they now appeal to the basest, stupidest impulses, and find that it does them no harm in the polls.

SarahLee: Sorry, you got caught!

The next day, Rep. Burgin quickly withdrew the bill hoping that no one had noticed and then re-introduced it 24-hours later, with a new bill number (HM 717), but now without the problematic paragraph. Nobody seems to have noticed until now.


It’s… it’s almost like lobbyists are writing the laws to serve their own interests! Oh my god! Has anyone heard about this???????????? Somebody tell Congress that they’re just figureheads for corporate interests! Somebody tell their constituents that they don’t give two shits about their sad little lives! ALERT THE MEDIA!

Nixon,Bush AND Reagan? Fuckk ehh
He can’t be president because he is completely out of touch with any part of America that isn’t stupidly wealthy. He’s never had friends who didn’t have servants, he’s never lived anywhere that wasn’t a mansion. To him, the poor aren’t people, they’re a hypothetical situation, a fantasy construction, a fairy tale.
