Clap Your Hands, Don’t Hand Out Clap, or Watch Out Planned Parenthood, Rick Santorum Has You in His Second Amendment Sites

So, as goes the imaginations of the current banzai wave of Budget-Slashing Neo-Cons and other members of the Women Hater’s Club would imagine, there goes Ms. Modern American Woman Girl, walking proudly down the street on her way to Planned Parenthood for a weekly “Post-Saturday Night Anonymous Hookup” abortion. Hey, why not get those inevitable STDs looked at too? While you’re there, you can read up on man-hating, lesbianism, witchcraft and communism too.

So runs the sort of narrative suggested by the likes of Ex-Senator Rick Santorum, when he’s not imagining some hot, sweaty, Gay man-on-Farm Animal action. Him, and a score of extremists that use Christ as camouflage as they attempt to push the status and rights of women boldly forward back towards the 1600s.

The thing about Planned Parenthood (aka the “abortion mill”) is that apparently, their nefarious agenda has always included the presumption that all women (and even youth) should have access to safe, affordable health care of all kinds. To the demonic end, the Planned Parenthood in the Memphis area (much like many of these howling pits of despair and gynecological check-ups) is offering free tests for STDs, as part of the GYT (“Get Yourself Tested!”) Day, today, Tuesday, April 19th.

As you may know, recently there was an attempt by House Republicans to attach a rider completely unfunding Planned Parenthood, since they believe federal funding shouldn’t be spent on what is euphemistically called “‘Abort-o-Rama”s. Of course, the fact that PP also provides pre- and post-natal health services, gynecological exams, etc., for millions of lower-income women is generally not pointed out.

Santorum even suggested that our current Social Security dilemma was, in part, caused by “all the abortions that – had they grown to be tax-paying citizens – would have added all the money we’d ever  need.” I’m paraphrasing here, but not much. Santorum suggested that 1 in every 3 fetus in the USA has been aborted. This only proves he’s as clueless with statistics as he is with social policies. Maybe he’s just grouchy, because he comes up #2 in a google search to this.  He also comes up smelling like #2, yet still he floats the idea of a 2012 Presidential Run.

So, if you’re in the Memphis area today, stop by their Planned Parenthood for free STD screening. Other locations, stop by for some inexpensive, if somewhat endangered, women’s health care. If you’re a man, stop by then in solidarity. Women hold up at least half the sky… time we men found something constructive to do as well.

 

 

Republicans to Cause Government Shut-Down Over Planned Parenthood Funding

John Boehner and his pack of jackals are ready to shut down the whole government, if their demands to gut funding for Planned Parenthood are not given into, like the terrorist demands they are.

A government shut-down means all “non essential government personnel” are laid-off, without pay, for the time period until the government starts back up again. that mean everyday working employees – the same ones republicans and Tea Party people want to strip of all collective bargaining rights, in essence making anew indentured servant class in America – they won’t get paid. Boehner and his gang? Oh, they’ll keep getting paid, just the way they all get free health care whilst trying to whittle away or sell-off to the insurance industry the same right for all Americans.

The show-down in the House of Representatives over the budget has reached the point where even when Democrats make concessions, the conservatives drag the compromise point another few hundred yards. Now, they have tied Planned Parenthood funding to the passing of the budget. they are willing to show yet again, the could not give the slightest damn about the health and welfare of the women of this country.

Also not getting paid? Military personnel and their families. The Republican party once again f***s over the men and women serving in uniform. I guess sending them to Iraq and Afghanistan to die needlessly just wasn’t enough, hmm?

For those of us who have been living under a rock (or inured to the harshness of life by wealth and excess… say a Republican Congressman) know that abortions are only one of the many, many health services offered at low, or no-cost to millions of American women. Prenatal care, breast cancer screening, etc., etc These are all the heinous afronts to decency that Boehner and the Tea Party want wiped off the earth.

Former Senator and all-around jackass Rick Santorum recently claimed that the current crisis in Social Security was caused by all the aborted fetuses who would have grown up to be tax-paying citizens, paying into the Social Security pool. Now that the baby Boomers are coming of Social Security age, the abortioniers have doomed us all. Of course, Santorum fails to see that he is also basically saying “If only we had aborted more of them, we’d have less baby Boomers that grew up to feed off the Social Security System.” The main point here, is that Rick Santorum has the mental capacity of a pitted olive and shouldn’t be trusted with a burnt-out match in the middle of a swimming pool.

Well, I remember the last time the government was shutdown by a bunch of republicans playing “High Noon at the OK Corral.” Back then, Sheriff Newt Gingrinch and his “Contract with America” gang tried the same tactic. As I remember it backfired then and the Party of No was devastated in the next election. I am praying foremost that America wakes up to the kind of House leadership that praises oil companies and insults teachers; that champions our armed forces and then send them into needless danger while cutting their pay, benefits and equipment; that would shut down a government because their reckless, evil and never-ending greed for their Single-Vision America is the only thing that warms their reptile hearts at night.

John Boehner, more blood is on your hands if you let this happen. America? Planned Parenthood is a noble healthcare provider, not an “abortion mill.” Don’t beleive the lies. Demand your country back.
