I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     NH GOP added “personhood” to their party platform this weekend.

Fetal personhood rights is now the official position of the Republican party of New Hampshire, meaning the GOP in that state believes in legal rights for a zygote.

Even damn Mississippi rejected this foolishness.  The hell are they thinking up there?  They aren’t thinking zygotes are actual babies though, that’s for sure, and I’ma tell you why.

     Scotland’s failed secession has some Americans thinking their state should break away from the US.

I have no opinion on Scotland’s vote last night.  If the people had voted to become an independent nation and break away from the United Kingdom, I would have congratulated them.  Since they decided to remain one unified country with England, Wales, & Northern Ireland….congratulations too?  I just have no position.

I do have a position on states here that want to break away from the US: if you wanna go, go on ahead.  Peace out.  Take your Bibles and your guns with you and hit the door.

And as soon as you realize how poor your state really is without the federal government, please don’t come knocking on my door.

     On Lindsey Graham’s abortion ban: If you sing to your fetus, it must be a person.

image

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is at the head of a push to pass legislation through the Senate which would ban abortion after 20 weeks.  In an interview with CBN, he used singing as part of his argument saying, “If you’re telling parents to sing to the baby because they understand your voice, really should we be aborting a child at the stage of the pregnancy?  I don’t want anybody carrying the Republican banner that doesn’t get this. If you don’t get this, then you’re the extremist.”

Right.  So….I went to go Google that just for fun and….

image

Oops.  Let me go tell all my green thumb folks with houseplants not to prune those leaves because plants are people too if you sing to them.

The most interesting (read: idiotic) thing about this argument is their assertion that only seven countries still allow women to have elective abortions after 20 weeks, which is true, but you know how the US feels about pesky little things called details.  And details are very important when you’re building an argument based on what an elective abortion is.

     Don’t be fooled by Republicans now supporting over-the-counter birth control.

There are some very tight races coming up and Republicans are determined to take control of the Senate.  One area where they’ve consistently taken a hit is women voters, so they’ve picked a flashy issue to throw some support behind — increased access to birth control.  A lot of media outlets are picking up this story and exposing it for what it is, another stunt by the GOP, but there isn’t enough attention being paid to the real downside.  

For instance, the LA Times ran a story yesterday about this influx of Conservative support and how strange it is to see Republicans and Planned Parenthood on the same page, but buried in the last third of the article is the point we really need to pay attention to:  over-the-counter medications are not covered by insurance which will in fact decrease access to birth control if suddenly women are unable to pay full price for it.

     Sarah Palin having a “debate” with Elizabeth Warren is the very best thing on the Internet.

A few weeks ago, Elizabeth Warren gave a pretty bomb-ass speech at Netroots Nation where she outlined her 11 tenets of progressivism.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth a quick watch.  But!  You don’t have to watch it!  Because Sarah Palin — after three weeks of meticulously crafting her responses to each of the eleven points — filmed herself rebutting Warren’s speech, splicing in footage for each tenet.  

image

Whatever you’re imagining isn’t nearly as ridiculous and embarrassing as what Sarah put out.  Y’all she took three weeks to form rebuttals and it sounds like Cher Horowitz winging it about those people who didn’t RSVP to her dad’s garden party. It’s such a delightful mess.

How many people really, truly believe that abortion is murder?

Read the article and form your own opinion, but I’ve never believed pro-lifers really think abortion is murder.

Would you vote for a guy who had encouraged his wife to kill two seven-year-old boys, even if he was full of remorse and said he was sorry? No. You wouldn’t. So the “pro-lifers” who voted for Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) even though he encouraged an ex-wife to have two abortions clearly don’t see abortion as murder the way they *think* they do and would like you to believe.

If abortion is murder, they’d have the same reaction to two abortions as they would a scenario where two seven-year-olds were murdered. Abortion is not about murder — it’s about regulating the bodies and sexuality of women and attempting to morally police others to hold them to a standard one believes is personally acceptable regardless of individual rights and differences of opinion.

     Texas GOP signs amicus brief saying gay marriage will lead to incest and pedophilia.

Texas Republicans are really not letting up on this gay marriage thing.  First we’re a threat to the fabric of society according to their official platform (x), and now 63 Texas Congresspeople have signed an amicus brief that argues legalizing gay marriage will lead to legalizing incest, pedophilia, and bigamy.

image

Are they bored?  I just feel like you must have nothing better to do if you’re spending all your time trying to make sure gay people don’t get married.  I don’t care what two people do with their own time because I have books to read and whiskeys to drink and reality TV shows to watch (and Republicans to talk shit about on the internet, obviously).

     Look at this photo. I would laugh extra hard…but y’all…these people get to actually vote and help put people in office though.  That just makes me unwell in my spirit.
